Black Sun Wars RPG Starship Starter set
by Tobias G.
Publisher: Desktop Wargames
Date Added: 07/10/2016 11:46:08
Black Sun Wars RPG Starship Starter set The idea of providing modular parts is pretty nifty, and the set provides ample pieces to build your fleet with. While I like the thing a lot, and definitely recommend it, there are a few criticisms: For one, the pieces are overly fiddly. The glue flaps are tiny, and some of the boxes would profit from different cut/glue lines. Second, there's no alternate color scheme. If you want to create different factions (and you do), it's difficult to build visually distinct fleets. I'll probably use decals. Unfortunately, you can't even use Photoshop to tweak the colors, as the file is protected. Finally, the textures might be a bit dated, compated to current papercraft standards. But that'a really minor point. Again, this is a good product, worth the money. It just could be even better!...

Fantasy AGE Encounters: Children's Crusade

Fantasy AGE Encounters: Children's Crusade More would have been better. What you have here is some background info and NPC descriptions. There is also one random table. I will say that one thing Fantasy Age products do well is focus on role playing other than combat, while providing excellent seeds for GM's to write. I like this pdf, but another page with more context would have been good.

Infected Zombie RPG

Infected Zombie RPG This is a great looking game, and an awesome setting. I really enjoy those Post-Apocalyptic games that are done well and this one has been done well. Its also amazingly cheap for what it is and would of happily paid more for it. If you are looking for something a bit gritty and love computer games like The Division then grab this, highly recommended.

The Solo Hack I wont go into a long diatribe about this. Instead, I will say that I played three adventures for about three hours. My guy went in ugly and stupid, came out dashing and smart. It's an excellent addition to TBH, and Iwould love to see more in the future!

Mind's Eye Theatre: Vampire The Masquerade
by Lance L.
Publisher: By Night Studios
Date Added: 07/09/2016 14:59:47
Mind's Eye Theatre: Vampire The Masquerade Fantastic version of the much beloved Vampire LARP -- you can tell that a ton of work went into getting this (mostly) right. Love what they did with status. Love what they did with the overall game mechanics. Don't love what they did to a couple disciplines, like possession and several of the Tremere paths, rituals, etc. But certainly worth the purchase. Got both the hard cover (from local game store) and the PDF from Drivethru RPG.

Monsterhearts
by Harpal K.
Publisher: Buried Without Ceremony
Date Added: 07/09/2016 14:17:53
Monsterhearts It's a teen monster drama RPG. I figure most people can figure out whether that will appeal to them or not, so I'll just say that if you're into the genre or into exploring teen angst in an RPG format, you should get this. It also excels in its capacity for (and insistence on) exploration of queer identity. A really good implementation of Apocalypse World's engine IMHO, the strings mechanic works really well, and it's a super fun game!

Legend of the Silver Skeleton (3.5)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/09/2016 12:16:20
Legend of the Silver Skeleton (3.5) Written to introduce the winning entry in the Creature Competition: Head-to-Head run on the Wizards website in the summer of 2005 to your party, this adventure begins at a wayfarer's inn that has plenty to attract passing adventurers: good beer, comfortable beds and rumours of nearby buried treasure. What's not to like? The background gives you plenty of information about what (and who) is to be found nearby, and even suggests several locations for the adventure if you are using the Greyhawk, Eberron or Forgotten Realms campaign worlds. Nice idea, would have been better had the author troubled to state which campaign world each location suggested was situated in! There's an adventure synopsis and several hooks to get the party into the action. The adventure begins when the party arrives at the Hostel of the Sacred Stone, the establishment in question. There's loads of detail to enable you to bring it to life for your players. The 'sacred stone' in question is a relic of a renowne...

Legendary Hybrids: Kinetic Shinobi
by Jesse S.
Publisher: Legendary Games
Date Added: 07/09/2016 11:57:22
Legendary Hybrids: Kinetic Shinobi I checked this out since I liked N. Jolly's other stuff, and found a very nicely put together hybrid class here. The mechanics work together well, including features from both parent classes while having enough separation to make the hybrid unique, allowing it to work with mechanics from both of its parent classes. The real shocking thing here was the massive amount of archetypes, filling a variety of niches that I wasn't expecting. Artwise, it has the same level of polish that I've seen from other Legendary Games products along with the solid mechanics and writing that I would hope for here. If you like either the kineticist or the ninja, you're going to really enjoy this hybrid of the two!...

Savage Rifts: Glitter Boy Preview

Savage Rifts: Glitter Boy Preview Another offering another great product! I am very happy with the way the GB came out. It keeps the tremendous fire power and combat ability and reinforces the piolets dependence on the armor. It dosen't mean the piolet is helpless ....it just means he's a specialist. I dig this because it forces the person play a Glitter Boy to be wary when out side of his armor. I mentioned this in a previous post, the combat machine that is the GB remains with a bit more emphesis on working with others. I have 2 players alreay fighting over who's going to play a Glitter Boy first!!! J....

Savage Rifts: The Tomorrow Legion Player's Guide
by jonEthan L.
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
Date Added: 07/09/2016 11:17:11
Savage Rifts: The Tomorrow Legion Player's Guide The Savage Rifts: The Tomorrow Legion Player's Guide is an outstanding first run product. I am amazed at how well both systems have been blended togeter and have kept the feel of both. Having read the Guide through I can't say enough good things. The excellence of the Players guide makes me all but drool in expectation for the rest of the line to be released! The art work is flavorful and feeds the imagintion wonderfully. The lay out is clean and easy to follow. The system just screams "make a character and play". The initial character creation steps are staright forward and fun (Personally, creating the character and building a back story has always been half the fun). It lends itself to complex and flavorful character creation which in turn leads to great role-playing. The combat system...works!!! It has blended the Savage mechanic with the Rifts MDC flavor in such a way as it makes sense and works!!! It's fast, simple and neat and is just cool to see in place with the Rifts te...

A Frigid Demise (3.0)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/09/2016 10:17:25
A Frigid Demise (3.0) Well, this is 'Dungeons and DRAGONS' after all, so it's nice to have an adventure that involves a dragon occasionally. It involves a crafty old white dragon by the name of Charasta, and the background notes for the DM tell you all about her. There are various ways you can introduce this adventure into your campaign. Perhaps they hear rumours of a dragon in the area and go looking, or they may be on the trail of an ancient box that is said to have the power to alter the weather. More likely they are investigating some caverns and they come across her lair by chance - she's kept it well-hidden, after all. Whatever you choose, the adventure involves a visit to her subterranean lair. This will prove a challenge as it is freezing cold and mostly underwater! Copious notes are provided to enable you to handle the effects of cold and being submerged on the characters. The map is based on one by Dennis Kauth that originally appeared in the Map of the Week feature on the Wizards of the Coa...

Desert Sands (3.0)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/09/2016 10:13:49
Desert Sands (3.0) Caravans travelling through the desert have been disappearing. Doesn't matter which desert, pick any suitable one in your campaign world. The backstory for the DM explains why, with a neat twist that makes it something out of the ordinary, and there are a few hooks to attract the party's attention - some will do even if they are quite a way from the desert in question (you could even have other adventures on the way there if you wanted!). Asking around at whichever end of the caravan route the party finds itself will pay off, there are quite a few snippets of information for them to gather. Eventually, however, they will have to venture forth onto the desert sands and all the accompanying dangers of extreme heat, dust storms, etc. There's a rare botanical treat here too - a cactus treant! Somewhere along the route, the party will encounter the location of the attacks and if they are lucky, the base used by the attackers. There are some interesting and unusual possibilities for fu...

Eclipse Phase: X-Risks
by John S.
Publisher: Posthuman Studios LLC
Date Added: 07/09/2016 08:08:02
Eclipse Phase: X-Risks Overall X-risks is a pretty good expansion to the Eclipse Phase universe, with lots of details on major threats, minor threats and monsters for your games. Unfortunately Posthuman Studios managed to miss producing any threats for (and from) a single faction in the political landscape of Sol. Since this is the faction your players are most likely to be spending time around, this is a pretty major oversight.

Gods of the Fall
by Heath W.
Publisher: Monte Cook Games
Date Added: 07/09/2016 04:24:29
Gods of the Fall A well done product, but like so many other Monte cook Games since the release of Numanera and the Strange, very few new original foci or backgrounds are introduced, and the new character types are simply slightly re-hashed versions of the ones already availible in the cypher system, it even says so in the book. I feel like that was exceptionally lazy and didnt do anything you as a player couldnt already to make a "demi-god" character. The material for making characters just keep getting recycled into their new products and this is no exception. However instead of blatently plugging olf foci into the book like has been don before and changing the name of a few, looking at you Cypher system the book offers suggestions on how to use, you guessed it, foci from other books, namely The Cypher system, whos foci list is simply a compilation of foci from the numenera and the strange, in this setting. Really what this amounts to is a setting book, so if your looking for tips on how to p...
