S. Petersen's Field Guide to Lovecraftian Horrors
by Christoffer N.
Publisher: Chaosium
Date Added: 05/04/2016 08:32:37
S. Petersen's Field Guide to Lovecraftian Horrors This book is filled with amazing artwork and lots of fun facts about H.P. Lovecraft's well-loved (and feared) mythos creatures. While the book stands on it's own for those who are only interested in the Cthulhu Mythos, it's also a well-made book for those running Call of Cthulhu games. Overall I'm very pleased with the PDF version of this book. It's everything I hoped for, times ten.

The GameMaster's Apprentice: Sci Fi
by Pierre S.
Publisher: Larcenous Designs, LLC
Date Added: 05/04/2016 08:22:29
The GameMaster's Apprentice: Sci Fi [Review revised now that the rules have more adventure-generation information.] This is a packed, information-rich deck of cards to assist the running of a science fiction RPG. It offers multiple fields of information. The individual cards are each printed on both sides of 60 cards, which makes it unclear which side to pick (draw a card, and flip it like a coin, maybe?) A small wheel of numbers lets you make dice-rolls from d4 to d100. This is VERY handy to make dice-rolls in a secret way for the GM, or by anybody for general noise-reduction. There are fields on the card to allow you to randomly pick evocative first names, sights, sounds, smells, locations, and belongings (in case an NPC living OR dead is encountered) suitable to an SF environment. The cards are adapted from their set for fantasy, and several fields of the card have different sets of icons that are perhaps more suitable to fantasy. There is a field for the Elder Futhark runes (the runic alphabet of the Vik...

One Last Riddle (3.0)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/04/2016 08:18:27
One Last Riddle (3.0) This is a short and rather vague encounter-based adventure involving a dead sphinx... whose ghost persists in asking riddles! His motivation is that he wants his recent demise avenged, and he lures the party with promises about loot left in the last place that he slept. The idea is that you have the ghostly sphinx accost the party as they are travelling - hence it's easy to slot in anywhere in whatever campaign world you are using. Even as a ghost, the sphinx is far too powerful for a party of the intended level, so this is a good adventure for groups who like to talk and think... or as a lesson to those who fight first and talk later if at all! After meeting the ghostly sphinx, the party is directed to his lair - a bare cavern - and thence to those responsible for his demise, and those parties who want a fight can have one then, and again as they follow up to a nearby town (use one of your own, or there's the bare outline of one provided). There's advice on how to run riddle-...

The King is Dead: VARGR
by Richard W.
Publisher: Four-in-Hand Games
Date Added: 05/04/2016 06:51:10
The King is Dead: VARGR Although this is advertised as an adventure, it's really more like a mini-setting. There's an overview of the history and geography of the region, a recap on recent events, and a breakdown of the various political factions (secret societies), as well as a handful of new abilities (one power, one Edge, and two Hindrances). There are also six archetypes (each offered as two versions: "standard" and "horrid secret"). The setting itself is a bit like a blend of French Revolution, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and Brotherhood of the Wolf, set in an alternate history with heavy gothic overtones and vampire aristocrats. The adventure part is split into three acts, each of which spans two pages, and I'm pleased to see it makes extensive use of Savage Worlds mechanics like Chases and Dramatic Tasks. Overall this is a very cool product that offers us a taste of great things to come....

Relic Files: Treasures of the Earth I - Svarduun

Relic Files: Treasures of the Earth I - Svarduun An Endzeitgeist.com review After the deviation from the formula in the last installment of this series, where we took a look at a power armor, this constitutes a return to the formula of depicting a relic, i.e. with a magic weapon that increases in potency every level. The pdf clocks in at 5 pages, with 1 page SRD/editorial, 1/2 a page front cover, leaving us with 3.5 pages of content, so let's take a closer look! We begin this item's entry with a significant and well-crafted section of fluffy introductory text, before getting into the details of the weapon - what, at first level, looks like a masterwork warhammer but may penetrate Dr as though it were magic swiftly improve: 2nd level lets the hammer work as a staff that contains the mending spell at either level 8 or the wielder's level, whichever is higher. This theme is further expanded, as higher levels provide Craft bonuses and less charges required to activate. On a nitpicky side, the notation of the Craft skills lacks th...

Mini-Dungeon IWG01: Den of the Glacial Bear

Publisher: AAW Games
Date Added: 05/04/2016 02:59:31
Mini-Dungeon IWG01: Den of the Glacial Bear An Endzeitgeist.com review This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map (alas, sans player-friendly version) and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked to d20pfsrd.com's shop and thus, absent from the pdf, with only deviations from the statblocks being noted for the GM. Since this product line's goal is providing short diversions, side-quest dungeons etc., I will not expect mind-shattering revelations, massive plots or particularly smart or detailed depictions, instead tackling the line for what it is. Additionally, it should be noted that this is intended for use in conjunction with the upcoming "Into the Wintry Gale"-saga. This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion. ... .. . Still here? All right! The PCs stumble across a heavily injured vikmordere-raider, who has been badly mauled by a glacial bear (stats can be found ...

Daring Comics Role-Playing Game

Daring Comics Role-Playing Game This game will scratch an itch for some, just not me. IMO it strays too far from what I love about Fate. Point buy and crunch that doesn't need to be there in a Fate game just doesn't sit right with me. That said there is some good GM advice for running superhero game. Those that like Strands of Fate will likely enjoy this one. Certainly not a bad game, just not for me.

The Haunting of Creedmore Asylum Fun scenario. Fairly priced. Played it with one group this afternoon and might play it again with another group at the game store this weekend. Would have liked to have some artwork, but that’s a minor thing.

Grain Into Gold
by Jeffrey V.
Publisher: Board Enterprises
Date Added: 05/03/2016 14:32:14
Grain Into Gold This is a highly useful book if you're looking for a fairly simplistic economic baseline to use for your fantasy campaign. It is complete enough that you can have a coherent underlying economic stratum without forcing you, as the GM, to manage an actual economy. It is consistent and holds together in the agregate, but is in no way exhaustive in the information it provides, and further, the discussions in the book suffer from poor editing, bad math, and somewhat arbitrary decisions on wages and prices which may, as the authors contend, be based on exhaustive research, but about which we are given little or no information to be able to judge the numbers for ourselves. If you want an economic backdrop that is more or less internally consistent and will enable you to keep your campaign world's economic system simple and reasonably capable of depicting personal economic activity, this book is for you. If you're looking for something more, such as the ability to run your characters when ...

DDAL4-01 Suits of the Mists (5e)
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/03/2016 14:26:37
DDAL4-01 Suits of the Mists (5e) Sorry to say, but this is quite a boring module. it is essentially 4 small gopher quests followed by a boring encounter. All of this only serves as a route to get your characters into Barovia. If you are NOT running a strict Adventurers League campaign, then any of the hooks detailed in the Curse of Strahd book are much more interesting than this module. Do not spend your money on this. it isn't even interesting to read; there is nothing in this module helpful for running a campaign on Barovia. It doesnt even have any information about the area that is visited in the follow up module DDAL04-02. Lastly, the amount of typos and grammatical errors is incredible. I would think that a simple scan in MS Word would have picked up 90% of them. It is what I would expect from a friend ee product on DMs Guild; not a paid product that was specifically comissioned by WoTC....

Dungeon Questing
by Steven W.
Publisher: MHGames
Date Added: 05/03/2016 13:38:15
Dungeon Questing This game is an inexpensive, but solid option iin the Old School gaming field. Right up front, let me say that the game could use another editorial pass. In the descriptions of Chrisma and Wisdom it says you get an XP bonus if your stat is 13+. At the beginning of the section, it explains that stas go from -2 to +2. So obviously, someone didn't finish cleaning up some of those old references. But I will also say that sort of thing is piddly-tosh and not what would frighten a bold adventurer. As it stats in the product description, Dungeon Questing is pretty much BX D&D, based on a 2d6 system instead of using a d20. If that sounds like your kind of game, then Dungeon Questing is for you. The rules are complete - as complete as any BX style game - with monsters and treasure and spells and everything else you need. Dungeon Questing does not use character classes - though their is an optional appendix to do so - but instead uses a skill system that lets you build your own charac...

DDEX1-11 Dark Pyramid of Sorcerer’s Isle (5e) An interesting dungeon crawl, but the story is a complete side trek from the season's narrative. "Ohmagerd our town's just been invaded and taken over by evil cultists! Quick, let's go explore this random ancient pyramid and take all the stuff!"
