Promethean: The Created
by Shawn H.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 10/21/2014 10:09:35
Promethean: The Created Interesting concepts but difficult to play. The game focuses far too much on pinnochio syndrome (I want to be a real boy!) for my taste.

Rogue Trader: Tau Character Guide
by Kenny A.
Publisher: Fantasy Flight Games
Date Added: 10/21/2014 02:41:17
Rogue Trader: Tau Character Guide Fairly decent book for playing Tau characters, however, It was not clear (or at least not clear enough to me) that it did not include rules for Tau spaceships, which is one of the big draws of the Rogue Trader setting in general. So while the book itself is pretty ok, it's much less than what it could've been.

Scroll of Errata
by Nathan H.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 10/21/2014 01:36:18
Scroll of Errata Something every Exalted 2nd edition player should have but sadly...it didn't go far enough. Somethings still needed revision that weren't revised, and some revisons like those for Ravening Maw of (Ability) probably should have gone a different way. All in all though, a worthwhile read.

Blood and Smoke: The Strix Chronicle
by Martin P.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 10/21/2014 00:04:32
Blood and Smoke: The Strix Chronicle This is a very good book probably my new favorite and definitely the trump of the 2nd ed NWoD splats at this time (end of 2014, so there's only demon and vampire, but meh). It holds a much needed update to vampire, it is more or less self-contiained with a few minor exceptions, and it is in general a very interesting read. Now, on the downside, here are a few things you should consider. Please note that while the below list is "long" I do not believe any of these things are so bad as to make the book itself bad, but if you are particularly bothered by any of the below you should probably think carefully before buying the book so as to avoid being disappointed later on. (and yes, I have been Very nitpicky with this part) First off, this is not a very well ordered book. The way it's laid out is confusing, it lacks an index (but has bookmarks, a minor balm for the issue) which makes the layout issue a bit more troublesome. It is also lacking entirely in animals, despite the fac...

Heirs to Hell
by Martin P.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 10/20/2014 23:35:04
Heirs to Hell Now this book is not going to be useful in every Demon game but I think it IS one of the most interesting books for the gameline (at this time, near the end of 2015). The price is tiny bit over what I would usually pay for such a short book but I think the content more than makes up for this. If you have the cash to spare and like Demon I'd highly recommend this book; you will love the ideas for "demonic" offspring found inside. (ps: they're not evil... unless you play them that way)

Demon Seed Collection
by Martin P.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 10/20/2014 23:31:55
Demon Seed Collection This is a Very good book for those wanting to GM a Demon the Descent game, whether experienced or not. It gives you a wide range of interesting example stories that one can use whole-cloth, in part or just be inspired by. For the price (currently $2.99) it is a purchase well worth making.

Faces of the Tarnished Souk: Primus Gearheart, the Clockwork King (PFRPG)
by Chris J.
Publisher: Rite Publishing
Date Added: 10/20/2014 15:57:46
Faces of the Tarnished Souk: Primus Gearheart, the Clockwork King (PFRPG) I have purchased quite a number of things from Rite Publishing – however this is my first glimpse into the Tarnished Souk. I should preface this by stating that the author offered me a copy of this product in exchange for this review. I really enjoyed reading about the Clockwork King, Primus Gearheart. The description made him seem like a very vivid and engaging NPC with unique goals and insight. After reading the first page I wanted to read more about Black Glass Spade and the Jack of Diamonds. The Clockwork King seemed like he would be a very interesting NPC for PCs to encounter and interact with. The description page also offered a number of ways to have Primus interact with a party – which seems particularly helpful. The endless stat blocks that followed were something of a disappointment. An immortal golem sorcerer with a superb armor class and some really neat and terrifying attacks is not what I was expecting. The stat blocks present three very formidable combat opponents ...

Naval Encounters
by Rebecca S.
Publisher: Metal Weave Games
Date Added: 10/20/2014 14:52:28
Naval Encounters This was pretty fun one, I based a campaign around it- although as far as the murder mystery with "Little Orpheon Annie", my players ended up guarding after the first death and despite my attempts to keep to that plot line, I had to make changes as they saved the intended victims. Still, was a fun sea-based campaign.

Mutations Mutable
by Matt H.
Publisher: Violent Media
Date Added: 10/19/2014 19:50:58
Mutations Mutable Mutations (especially randomly assigned ones) are a guilty pleasure of mine. In explanation, I can point a finger at 1st Ed Gamma World. Although I played and loved Moldvay's Basic Set first, I totally fell for James Ward's post-apocalyptic game, its random character generation rules, its wild esoteric charts and of course, the mutations. Played RAW, there is no way to min/max a classic Gamma World character. And, for the most part, the same goes for classic D&D as well. Good and bad, you deal with the whims of the dice. If this anything-goes, the-weirder-the-better outlook describes you and your players, this product could be perfect for you. Violent Media's Mutations Mutable by Edward Lockhart is a list of mutations applicable for use in old school fantasy games. It would work just as well in other era old school games — sci fi, pulp adventure, revolutionary war tales, you name it. (I would suggest it would be too limited a list of mutations to base an entire post-apoc campaign ar...

Mutations Mutable
by Aaron C.
Publisher: Violent Media
Date Added: 10/19/2014 16:25:39
Mutations Mutable A quick disclaimer about my reviewing method. I give only two ratings: 5 stars or 1 star. For me, either something is good or it isn't, and I see little point (as I am not a critic) in dredging around between the two. Mutations Mutable is a fun set of rules and extensive charts that provides GMs with a bewildering variety of mutations to impose on victims (and potentially even the spellcasters themselves). It's pretty much as though magic is powered by pure, unadulterated nuclear radiation, making each spell an exposure risk to pretty much anyone close enough to witness it. This has the effect of turning spellcasters into nuclear reactors perpetually on the verge of a catastrophic meltdown, and of course that sounds amazing and something I can't wait to spring on unsuspecting players. I fully intend to include these mutation rules (though maybe only selectively; there are some truly horrible disfigurements... 'flesh pockets'? Gross) during my next game. I'm interested to see how ...

Hörbuch – Das Ferdoker Pergament (MP3) als Download kaufen Die Geschichte spielt 1008 BF und beginnt in Havena, wo auch ein Großteil der Handlung stattfindet. Eine lose Verzahnung besteht zum PC-Game Drakensang – Am Fluss der Zeit, wobei diese in erster Linie aus dem Auftauchen einiger Figuren im jeweils anderen Medium besteht. Story & Autor Der noch junge Gwidion ist Teil einer Diebesgilde in Havena, die von der Diebin Mora angeführt wird. Zwischen den beiden Köpfen der Diebesgilden findet ein Wettstreit darüber statt, wer wohl die dreisteste und unglaublichste Errungenschaft machen kann. In diesem Zusammenhang steht der Diebstahl eines Pergaments an, bei dem Gwidion eigentlich nur Wache stehen soll, doch dann entwickelt sich alles ganz anders als geplant. Das Pergament landet schließlich dennoch in den Händen der Diebe, doch damit fangen die Schwierigkeiten erst an. Zur gleichen Zeit werden von der magischen Ermittlerin von Sperberling einige Mordfälle untersucht, und auch die Hesinde-Geweihte Swanja wird unfreiwillig in die Gesamtg...

101 Not So Simple Monster Templates (13th Age)
by Sylvain B.
Publisher: Rite Publishing
Date Added: 10/19/2014 12:06:41
101 Not So Simple Monster Templates (13th Age) This product provides a wide variety of templates which can be easily applied to13th Age creatures to add flavour to the game and keep players on their toes. Some of the templates, such as Stealthy, are more mundane in nature while others, such as Winterwight, veer toward the fantastic. Some of them add or subtract to the creature's effective level. For example, the Cowardly template reduces the creature's level by 1. The pdf is well laid out with a piece of quality color artwork on most every page. I appreciate the fact that the creature illustrations showcase some of the templates described within. For those concerned with the artwork's offensiveness, the cover's picture of a pixie might be considered the "worst" of the product, although I personally don't find it out of place to illustrate the subject. I did not bother to count but, cover aside, the gender representation also appears to be fair at first glance. All in all, although a bit pricey for the page count, it off...

The Description System
by Ranjith E. M.
Publisher: Postmortem Studios
Date Added: 10/19/2014 04:40:35
The Description System First, I want to point out that I start reviews with the bad things and then get to the better aspects. This being said, I have to admit that I have trouble finding anything bad about this system. All things that may be considered negative are not negative once you take into consideration what this system aims to be. It is a very light generic RPG system, and as such, things are not that crunchy. The experience system may seem a tad flavourless, but the more I think about it, the more I like it; although the rate experience points are handed out may be a bit low considering the costs for things... As a rules light system, it does not have many small rules for this or that situation, but then again, they are not really necessary for what it aims to achieve. The system is a true generic system in allowing you to explore whatever you want. The structure of the core mechanisms do not hinder any decisions. This being said, there are, of course, a few caveats, the most prominent pro...

Within the Ring of Fire - Monsters & Men
by Heathbrook B.
Publisher: RAW Immersive Games
Date Added: 10/18/2014 21:00:49
Within the Ring of Fire - Monsters & Men I recently finished reading Monsters & Men. This book is awesome in the truest sense of the word! I would go as far to call it mandatory reading for anyone running a long form WtRoF saga. Together with 77 Thrones the game feels much complete. There is endless opportunity for diverse roleplaying experiences contained within this book, through many playable species, that are so different and quirky from old fantasy troupes it makes for a very refreshing setting. The world of K'Vega'Thale is truly a strange and terrible place, and this is reflected more than ever in the species that inhabit it. There is just an abundance of ideas here. I recommend it highly for Flame Tenders and Catalysts alike....

Demon: The Descent
by Akos S.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 10/18/2014 20:30:38
Demon: The Descent Those who would like to play a „technogostic espionage” game, should stop reading and buy the game. It is very good in doing that. If you expect classical demons and angels with occult / religious themes, emotional dilemmas keep reading. With the introduction of the God-Machine, a supernatural, occult machine working behind the scenes of the world, Onyx Path Publishing took the whole World of Darkness setting into a more technical and “sciency” directions. This is reflected in their new, re-imagined game lines, in which Demon the Descent is the next. Setting Demon the Descent idea is not a new one, which is not a bad thing in itself. There was a nice RPG called Zero, which thematically is very similar to Demon the Descent, where biomechanical hive creature loose their connection to hive and become individuals. In Demon the Descent the machine spirits (which are called demons and angels, but more on that later) are simple physical/electronic/occult subroutines of the God-Machine...
