Jadetech: Green Jade
by Christopher R.
Publisher: Reroll Productions
Date Added: 07/16/2014 16:16:31
Jadetech: Green Jade A 16 page booklet for only $2.99? Even if I wasn't a Jadepunk fan the low price and attractive cover art would make this an impulse buy. But I am a fan of Jadepunk, so it's a must-have! Jacob Possin knocked the writing out of the park on this one! There is so much history and setting detail contained in this booklet it's insane. The properties and histories in just the sidebars alone are worth the price of admission! Not to mention the jade-tainted creatures! Both "natural" tainted due to long-term exposure and the equivalent of genetic engineering, if you want to upgrade your guard dog, green jade is the way to go. Side note, mad props for including rodents of exceptional stature! It also contains quite a few green jade assets. From lightsabers to Thor's hammer to the shirshu from Avatar: The Last Airbender, it's got it all! Oh, I almost forgot the green jade potions. I like how the flaws are listed as "based off of asset creation roll." Way to remind me that potions are cre...

Ambient Environments - Dwarven City (with music)

Publisher: Ambient Environments
Date Added: 07/16/2014 14:05:16
Ambient Environments - Dwarven City (with music) I wrote the following review of the original "Dwarven City" soundscape from Ambient Environments: "This does not sound like a very friendly place! 'Duergar City' might be more like it. Barking dogs give you the sense that you're not really welcome here. Gruff voices, soft cries, and the sounds of pickaxes working away at ore deposits might give you the sense of slave labor. The track is pretty well done and relatively non-intrusive, even with the voices. But I don't see myself using it that often, unless the PCs at my table get captured by dark dwarf slavers or something like that." This product is the same track enhanced with orchestral-type music. The music is very well done, and gives the whole thing a very cinematic flair. I would definitely be more likely to use the "with music" version. But the tone is still ominous, befitting a place where the workers are slaves or the entire community is very much down on its luck. Still, the music adds enough depth and texture for me to give t...

Ambient Environments - Desert Winds
by Chris H. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Ambient Environments

Ambient Environments - Desert Winds This track is dominated, of course, by the sound of wind. It mostly sounds like someone left a microphone out during a sandstorm—which, of course, is the point of the track. In the background, you can barely hear some instrumental music with a Middle Eastern feel. The overall effect is very nice, though I could stand for the musical accents to be louder. The track is a good addition to the Ambient Environments catalog, but there is no "wow" factor to it.

peakable-oath-issue-24-call-of-cthulhu-delta-green/ Man, I can’t believe it’s been nearly a year since issue #23 of The Unspeakable Oath. I love this magazine but I do wish it would come out more regularly. This is only the fifth issue to come out since July 2011, but what gaming magazine DOES come out on a regular basis these days? Pathways and White Dwarf. It’s just the way the industry is these days. Still, ANY time a new issue of The Unspeakable Oath comes out, it is a time for Cthulhu oriented gamers to celebrate as they get a ton of new articles, adventures, story seeds and other fun content for less than ten dollars. Issue #24 gives us fourteen new articles (all for Call of Cthulhu Delta Green to peruse. If you haven’t picked it up yet (AND WHY NOT?), let’s take a look at what awaits you inside… First up? “The Dread Page of Azathoth,” which always contains some fun wisdom. In this case, it...

D&D Expert Set Rulebook (B/X ed.) (Basic)

Date Added: 07/16/2014 04:52:02
D&D Expert Set Rulebook (B/X ed.) (Basic) This is an excellent product, and a great follow on from the basic version. I first picked up the Easy to Master (Black Box) edition of D&D in 1991, and followed that up with the Rules Cyclopedia, but I really like seeing how the rules of the system have evolved over time. Obviously, this product gets only 4/5, since it is not perfect by any means, especially when compared to today's standard. However, it does give an immense insight in to just how far D&D has come over the past 40 years. Hopefully, the other rulebooks will also be added here in the future. I am curious to see exactly what the Companion and Master sets added, even though I believe these were released under the BECMI revisions, but I much prefer the single book format of B/X ed. for some reason......

Mythic Minis 10: Universal Path Abilities

Mythic Minis 10: Universal Path Abilities An Endzeitgeist.com review This Mythic Mini clocks in at 3 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page content, so let's take a look, shall we? This time, we're all about universal path abilities, so let's check this out! First, we're on to 4 1st tier abilities, with "bound by honor" allowing you to take monk's vows and thus use mythjic tier to increase ki-pool (or mythic power), saves and also improve quarry, challenge and similar abilities to represent your convictions guiding you. Nice. "Ever Ready" makes you more efficient in surprise rounds and against readied actions, which is actually rather fitting for a mythic ability and manages to convey the mythic flair rather well, in stark contrast to many a passive mythic ability. "Genre Savy" is imho the better (not in power - in execution) "Analytical Eye" - by making knowledge checks to identify creatures, you can use mythic power to temporarily ignore DR and resistances - and all sans requiring those pesk...

Mythic Minis 9: Feats of Terror An Endzeitgeist.com review This Mythic Mini clocks in at 3 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page content, so let's take a look, shall we? This time, we're all about feats that inspire true dread, so let's take a look! -Dragonfear: Says it all - better, mythic rank-powered frightful presence for dragons. Make those knights run! Pity there's no "Let non-mythic-guys-die-by-dragonfright"-caveat as seen in some books... -Gory Finish (Mythic): Better, mythic version of the feat, allows you use it easier and use mythic power to spontaneously use it in conjunction with weapons that you have weapon focus in. Makes more sense as an option than the base feat. Neat! -Intimidating Bane (Mythic): Another mythic version of a base feat, making the rather bland base feat actually work and be less of a waste - better intimidating effects and free weapo focus with bane weapons when using the base feat. Neat! -Menacing Blow: Available in normal and mythic...

Mythic Minis 8: Trickster Path Abilities An Endzeitgeist.com review This Mythic Mini clocks in at 3 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page content, so let's take a look, shall we? All right, another path-ability installment, so let's take a look whether this one can finally convince me. We kick off with 5 trickster abilities for 1st tier, with one, analytical eye, having already featured in teh Guardian Path abilities. I didn't consider it good design and too metagamey back then and that has not changed. Next. The first new one would be backstabber, which is a passive benefit that increases to-hit and sneak attack damage output and allows you to spend mythic power to flank otherwise unflankable non-mythic opponents. Solid, nothing to complain about. Caress of Steel hits a soft spot with me - it annuls the non-lethal damage penalty to atk with lethal weapons - and allows you to deal nonlethal sneak attack damage with lethal weapons. And yes, according to RAW, you can't do nonlethal sneak at...

Ambient Environments - Dead Swamp
by Chris H. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Ambient Environments
Date Added: 07/16/2014 01:19:27
Ambient Environments - Dead Swamp There is a striking mismatch between the title of this track, "Dead Swamp," and the first sounds you hear, which are sounds of life (crickets and frogs). In fact, crickets and frogs, along with birds and some other vague sounds that might be footfalls, are mostly what you hear throughout the entire track. The sense of "swampiness" comes only from the bubbling sounds you hear during the seventh minute of this track, and from a splash in the ninth minute—a splash that might be an alligator sliding into the water. If you listen to the track thinking "swamp," you hear a swamp. If you don't have that preconceived notion, you could be on an oilfield, out in the prairie, next to a placid lake, and so on. The name doesn't fit, but you can use the soundscape to good effect for a living ecosystem near just about any body of fresh water....

Ambient Environments - Cult Worshippers

Publisher: Ambient Environments
Date Added: 07/16/2014 01:07:11
Ambient Environments - Cult Worshippers This track starts out very creepy, almost scary, with very deeply-pitched vocals that sound like they might come from some otherworldly entity. Then the track goes quiet, lapsing into a long stretch that sometimes gets near to silence but mostly exhibits very quiet vocals and ethereal sounds. It remains eerie, especially when all the sounds but the voices stop and you continue to hear this ominous chanting. Honestly, this one is almost too spooky and fairly disturbing—which means, I think that evokes exactly the feeling it's supposed to evoke....

Ambient Environments - Civil War Battle
by Chris H. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Ambient Environments
Date Added: 07/16/2014 00:54:56
Ambient Environments - Civil War Battle Rifle and canon fire, the shouts of soldiers, and even the occasional sounding of a bugle combine to very effectively evoke the sense of the 19th-century US Civil War. The only thing that detracts from the scene is the occasional whistling, which comes off as a tad too jaunty for the scene. Also, the volume level seems to be noticeably lower than that of other Ambient Environments soundscapes. At any rate, this soundscape meets its goal very admirably.

Shadowrun: Street Grimoire

Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 07/15/2014 23:56:29
Shadowrun: Street Grimoire SO many bad, obvious errors. I'm a huge fan, very much into mages and was really looking forward to this. There are some good ideas, and many of the fluff sections are great, but the editing is just awful. This is not a professional, ready for sale product. Worse, they announced it was off to the printers the same day it was released. Lots of references to powers that don't exist yet, often as prerequisites. Drain codes that are completely off. Spells that HAVE to be Physical spells listed as "Mana". Adept powers are massively over-costed and "the ways" make no sense. Even the layout is fairly nonsensical. It's not like there were no good ideas here. With maybe another month of editing and error checking it could have been good. As it stands, it makes me worry about the company that they released it in this shape....

Ambient Environments - Car Chase
by Chris H. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Ambient Environments
Date Added: 07/15/2014 18:59:11
Ambient Environments - Car Chase This tracks jumps right into the middle of the action—as it should, for a background loop—with a car engine running at a pretty high RPM, followed shortly by the squealing of tires. There's even some breaking glass and such to show the speeding car's effect on its environment. It's a fun track that certainly puts listeners right inside the car, though it's up to you and the story whether that's the getaway car or the car in hot pursuit. There's quite a lot of gunfire in the track, which actually limits your options a bit. Some of the gunfire is rather high-pitched, almost implying "laser bullets," so you could probably use this track in a near-future chase as well as a modern chase. You can't take this back very far into the past, though. Even the 1920s (think Call of Cthulhu) would not support cars that sound like this. I did not notice any sirens in the soundscape, so you're not locked into having the police involved in the chase. I think I'd like to hear a version without the gunfir...

Ambient Environments - Burning Building

Ambient Environments - Burning Building Flames—which sound surprisingly similar to river rapids—surround the listener, as the sounds of falling wooden beams and shattering glass let you know that the building is in bad shape. The presence of shattering glass does limit your options somewhat in the time periods or kinds of buildings you can use with this track. For example, it might fit with a fantasy-medieval cathedral, palace, or wizardry school, but not with the town mill or farmer Grizzle's barn (to hearken back to one of the earliest scenarios I used to introduce D&D to my older son). All in all, I think a modern setting feels like a better fit. Of course, you could also play this track in the background while playing Flash Point; gaming background loops don't have to be just for RPGs....
