Ship Book:Type S Scout/Courier
by Kevin M.
Publisher: Moon Toad Publishing
Date Added: 01/20/2016 21:52:51
Ship Book:Type S Scout/Courier One of my favorite ships in Traveller. Basically a small mobile home, where you can bring your stuff. Small enough not to draw attention, so you can do stuff, and yeah. The renders make more sense then the original layout floor plan. Was hoping for maybe some 3rd quarter view inside the ship, to help show varriations.... But for the price that might be a bit much to hope for. Maybe a supplement expansion? Either way a real good set of maps.

Morgalad Fantasy RPG Basic Rules Preview

Morgalad Fantasy RPG Basic Rules Preview I bought this quick start rules and was surprise how it is simple and at the same time fun! I had to read again the rules to understand the mechanics (because they're giving you only the basics) and understand it well. It' not a bible of complicated rules. Try this quick start rules first and buy the core rulebook if you are interested. There are two pre-gen characters (warrior and magi) and there is also a very short scenario (with a NECROMANCER) to get in the action!

Quill: A Letter-Writing Roleplaying Game for a Single Player

Quill: A Letter-Writing Roleplaying Game for a Single Player Originally posted at [The Savage AfterWorld](http://savageafterworld.blogspot.com/2016/01/rev-
iew-quill-letter-writing-rpg-by.html): Sometimes in an RPG, your character's ability to swing a sword or pick a lock don't matter. In the world of *Quill: A Letter-Writing RPG for a Single Player* by Scott Malthouse, it all comes down to your PC's penmanship and eloquence. In *Quill*, you take on the persona of a letter-writer who is trying to create the best missive to impress the letter's recipient. Do well, and the letter-reader might be impressed enough to reward you. Perform poorly, and the punishment could be dire. Everything that happens to your character comes down to your ability to write convincingly and with heart. (Although your real-life ability to write well is secondary to the gameplay, which will become clear during this review.) In this unusually-styled RPG, you have six character classes to choose from that reflect professions with a literate background: Monk, Poet, A...

Mage: the Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition

Mage: the Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition I received the 600+ premium POD book today and the spine broke the first time I opened it. The book is too big to acutally be used considering the binding is just glue. Do NOT spend such a large amount of money on this book. Stick with the .pdf if you make a purchase. I hope I can return this book as it was a total waste of money. POD just isn't as good as true book binding (sewn in pages).

Skyscrapers & Sorcery White Box Rules
by Steven W.
Publisher: Sleeping Griffon Productions
Date Added: 01/20/2016 16:18:01
Skyscrapers & Sorcery White Box Rules I really enjoyed this product, but felt it could have used just a bit more to really make it sparkle. The game system is based on White Box Sword & Sorcery (i.e. old D&D), but the addition of a career system to flesh out the PC's background (instead of a skill system) is a really neat idea. The game setting is post-small-apocalypse late 20th century Earth, with monsters and magic coming back in the hidden and secret places. Another really interesting idea. Overall, I loved what was here, but felt that a little more could have made this a better product. For instance, I felt that a small (2-3 page) write up of adventure or campaign ideas could have really helped nail down the tone of the game. Similarly, I think a small section of new and unique magic items - mixing the campaign magic with the technology of the unique setting - could have helped provide a great deal of color. Admittedly, these are all things an experienced DM can think up themselves, but I always like to see t...

Stark Space
by Steven W.
Publisher: Magic Pig Media
Date Added: 01/20/2016 15:49:56
Stark Space This small but meaty supplement helps move White Star (or another OSR Sci Fi game of your liking) away from Star Wars and towards the kind of gritty sci fi seen in Aliens, Bladerunner and other films of their ilk. It includes three new character classes and a skill system that lets those classes portray a number of different character types, and four races (well, humans and three human-centric variants). A nice selection of gear is included, with weapons, armor, drugs and survival/exploration gear featured. Cyberware also gets a nice write up. While no detailed setting is included, there is a small precis of what the setting entails, and the rest of the book - especially the antagonists setting - include more details to flesh things out. Still, the GM will have to do the heavy lifting to fill things out. Two minor observations.. Firstly, the book has a number of typographical and grammatical errors, not enough to make the book confusing but enough to be noticable. Secondly, t...

Iconic Legends: Gan Astral Knight

Publisher: Rogue Genius Games
Date Added: 01/20/2016 14:14:27
Iconic Legends: Gan Astral Knight I have to quantify this review with a simple revelation about my tastes. I hate these tiny one character releases. Id rather buy a large book for more money with more characters. If its ICONS I still buy them, though, because I like to keep up on all things ICONS. I grumble about it to myself, though. The one exception to this resentment of mine is Rogue Genius Games Iconic Legends series. The art is great. The characters are well done. They interweave and create a feel of classic Marvel comics... though with the serial numbers filed off you can tinker with them more before offending anyone. These are quality releases on every level. Now for my one complaint about this series. There are so many more of them still only in Mutants & Masterminds statistics only. Please convert more of them into ICONS I would buy every one without hesitation like the Recluse and others. You could use this formula for larger releases rather than just one character at a time... maybe one abo...

Four Horsemen Present: Gruesome Constructs

Publisher: Rogue Genius Games

Four Horsemen Present: Gruesome Constructs An Endzeitgeist.com review The fourth Gruesome monsters-supplement (for a handy list, use the Gruesome-tag on my homepage) clocks in at 14 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, leaving us with 12 pages of content, so let's take a look! So what are gruesome monsters? The simple explanation is that they're monsters that had a template added, which represents a type of design I personally absolutely adore: Basically, the templates have a goal and that is to reward smart players. Taking a cue from the best of dark fantasy and horror gaming, the templates provided here make the creatures not only more lethal, they also add a psychological component via the Shock Value to them, representing the potential for PCs being intimidated/frightened by the sheer wrongness of the creatures presented. Furthermore, the templates may be lethal, yes, but they also come with an Achilles heel that rewards PCs acting smart and doing their legwork (meaning that knowledge DC-modifiers c...

Call to Arms: Powders and Dusts An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Call to Arms-series clocks in at 30 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 24 pages of content, so let's take a look, shall we? We begin, as has become the tradition with the Call to Arms-series, this supplement with a brief piece of in-character prose as well as a well-researched piece on the history of warfare regarding the particular instrument of destruction at hand - this time prefacing the whole book with the best-known quote of one of the most influential and, in my opinion, best epic poems of all time, T.S. Eliot's "The Waste Land" - for which I btw. encourage the scholars among you to get the Norton Critical Edition...but that just as an aside. The interesting component here is that the pdf talks about uses of mundane, non-lethal powders in battle, namely the practice of blinding opponents via e.g. the Dirty Trick maneuver, reca...

Character Options: Witches

Character Options: Witches An Endzeitgeist.com review This pdf clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1/2 a page editorial/SRD, leaving us with 5 1/2 pages of content, so let's take a look! We begin this little pdf of witch-options with new witch patrons, 10 to be precise, though you quickly realize that the respective patrons differ from what you'd expect in a witch's patron - or at least, did so for me. This is particularly apparent in 4 patrons, the Celestial, Fiend, Chaotic and Orderly patrons - in case you're not immediately aware of that by the names, they represent one extreme of the two alignment axes, smething that, flavor-wise, was up until now rather the providence of sorcerors, wizards and divine casters. On a plus-side, the respective patrons can be considered to be rather well-crafted, with a fitting spell-dispersal for the respective levels, though personally, I couldn't shake the feeling of them being "un-witchy" - then again, that's my own issue and will not feature in the verdict of ...

oekos-krieg-und-korruption/ Als Setting mit nur wenig Fantasy-Einheitsbrei präsentiert der schwedische Verlag Järnringen sein Rollenspiel Symbaroum nun auch auf Englisch. Visuell opulent, mit einfachen Regeln, aber stark individualisierbaren Charakteren darf man sich in einen Konflikt zwischen kolonialen Ausbeutern und natur-affinen Völkern einmischen. **Rezension: Symbaroum – Ökos, Krieg und Korruption** Crowdfunding hat es mal wieder möglich gemacht: Ein schwedischer Verlag beglückt uns mit seinem Produkt Symbaroum nun auch in einer internationalen Fassung auf Englisch. Kampagnen und Abenteuer sind auch in der Pipeline oder zumindest angedacht. Das schwedische Sortiment ist laut Webseite aber noch nicht wesentlich größer als das englische. Das Spielerhandbuch, das Optionenvielfalt in allen SC-relevanten Bereichen verspricht, gibt es noch nicht auf Englisch. Jedenfalls hat Symbaroum bereits ein gewisses Echo in der...

Gauntlet of Spiragos [5E OGL adventure] A quicke review. This is a great little starter adventure, and 45 pages (incl covers etc) of colour PDF for free is amazing value! Outside the adventure it has several unique NPCs, and new monsters and magic items. ALthough I have not run this, I will be very soon with my kids (aged 6,7,10,12) - and they'll have to use their imagination to defeat some of the challenges therein. A great intro to the Scarred Lands!

Enchanted Armory: Rings of Power (for 5e)

Enchanted Armory: Rings of Power (for 5e) Check out the preview, you're basically getting two of the rings for free, lol. If you find those interesting, you'll find the ebook worth your money. This latest 5E release from The Le Games, much like the EA: Magical Weapons, will give you ideas for making your own rings, even if you don't use any from within its pages. If you are looking for a ring to drop into your campaign to furrow the brows of the players that have memorized the DMG, look no further. Aside from needing a little more refined editting, the only negative thing I have to say is the formatting is a smidge different from the last ebook. Looking forward to the next one!...

Enchanted Armory: Magical Weapons (for 5e) If you are interested in making your magical weapons more magical, you ought to pick up this little ebook. I've been following the creative talent (author, not artists) for a while now and these magic weapons will serve as inspiration for any you might create, if you don't choose to use the ones he's provided within. For the most part I find them balanced and a cut above the plain vanilla, +1 bow, etc. I gave the ebook 4 out of 5 stars, not due to any failings, just as a motivator to keep improving. If you'd like a taste of what is in this book, check out the preview or look for some of the multitude of items that he has posted in a few of the 5E D&D Facebook groups....
