Lycanthropes: Theme Pack
by Jeffrey G.
Publisher: Trash Mob Minis
Date Added: 01/21/2017 02:38:33
Lycanthropes: Theme Pack I\'m a big fan of Trash Mob Minis, and I really like this set. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the beast forms are useful as animals as well as lycanthropes, so I\'ll be getting a lot of use out of this set. Highly recommended.

Heroes: Pack 1
by Jeffrey G.
Publisher: Trash Mob Minis
Date Added: 01/21/2017 02:34:47
Heroes: Pack 1 I really love the Trash Mob art style, and these minis are up to the excellent standards of the rest of the line. I only gave this set 4 stars because four of the six heroes represent pretty specific settings, and may not be tremendously useful for every player or GM, so that hurts the set\'s value slightly. Otherwise, though, the set is beautiful.

Stars Without Number Starter [BUNDLE]
by Raymond W.
Publisher: Sine Nomine Publishing
Date Added: 01/21/2017 01:46:00
Stars Without Number Starter [BUNDLE] I\'m a big fan of Kevin\'s stuff, and this is no exception. I already owned everything in it except for *Sixteen Stars*, so I feel qualified to talk about the bundle as a whole. What I really like about it is that it very much lives up to its name; which is to say that iit provides a great starting point for a SWoN campaign. *Sons of Gold* is a good style of play to start with (i.e. the PCs as interstellar merchants). *Sixteen Stars* , introduced in this bundle, gives a prospective GM a ready-made inspiration engine for science-fiction role-playing, using a series of tables to quickly assemble plot seeds for tropey SWoN locations (like asteroid habitats, alien jungles and the like). *Hard Light* gives the GM a solid adventure to start with, and a good blueprint for writing one\'s own. I could go on, but you get the picture. If you have any interest in SWoN, this is a good bundle to start with. It\'s very reasonably priced (usually $52 but currently on-sale for $25) for the qu...

Roleplaying Emotion
by Lacy V.
Publisher: Dancing Lights Press
Date Added: 01/20/2017 23:36:25
Roleplaying Emotion What I like about this series is that every book focuses on role-playing and storytelling rather than mechanics. This makes the ideas easy use for any game you are playing. Because I am a person who likes telling stories with friends more than killing mosters, this book is no exception. The idea is to think of what your character is feeling. There are two options, positive emotions and negative emotions. This allows you to decide how to interpret situations. There are 5 examples of positive emotions and 5 examples of negative emotions to demonstrate the kind of choices you can make for your character. These examples can be used for other emotions you might want to express because they are common feelings that arise in fantasy role-playing. You are not limited to these options as you would with a list of spells or feats. They are included to help you understand how it works. Part of the book is how emotions can affect the game by adding modifiers. If the character is angry for exa...

Fantastic Locations: Fane of the Drow (3.5)
by William W. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 01/20/2017 22:33:08
Fantastic Locations: Fane of the Drow (3.5) (This review is for a print-on-demand copy of the book) CONTENT - A solid set of four battle scenarios for four 4th level D&D 3.5 characters, set in the Underdark, and usable with both the RPG and the D&D Miniatures game. There\'s a small amount of background information and lore provided for each of the scenarios, and adventure hooks and further adventure suggestions for each of them as well. The NPCs are fleshed out well (Amandrucul is particularly nasty), and color text is well written. While it is short (17 pages), this product could open up a lot of opportunities for further adventures in the Underdark. PRINT - The print-on-demand product is very good looking - the color cover is vibrant and not grainy, and the printing and artwork on the interior pages is clear even with the gray background graphics. The only issue with the print edition is the color maps, which look great, but do not come out to the proper scale for miniature use, and the binding prevents making color copi...

D&D Basic Set Rulebook (B/X ed.) (Basic)
by Miranda S.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 01/20/2017 22:32:04
D&D Basic Set Rulebook (B/X ed.) (Basic) This is the rule book I had when I was a child. It\'s easy to understand, has great examples to help you on your way, and it\'s still good all these years later. I taught my kids using this book and they hve both designed their own dungeons from it. That meant the original was getting a bit tatty which is why it was so great to be able to buy an elecronic version!

MASHED: A Korean War MASH RPG
by Lucus P.
Publisher: Brabblemark Press
Date Added: 01/20/2017 21:23:15
MASHED: A Korean War MASH RPG I gave this RPG 5 stars, but let me qualify it for claritie\'s sake if you are a potential buyer. If you go into the book wanting to play what it is offering, you will be pleasantly surprised how well they were able to do what they wanted to with this system, etc. They offer excellent support for it, and it has all things I would need to play it (the setting/game as designed) for certain, and I could very likely \"make it work\" for any number of other, similar settings (field hospital in WWII? sure. American Civil War? With some research. In modern day Iraq? Yeah likely but again -- research). If you go in expecting it to be what it says it is, you will find it is the best version of that self. If you\'re from either a limited background of \"what an RPG is\" or you want to do something with this that it wasn\'t made for, I don\'t recommend it. It\'s a 3 Star as an add-on to your more hacky-slashy, or \"war game\" becuase that\'s not the point of this. And I don\'t think it shou...

It\'s minimalist design and portrait layout panels have just right information and aren\'t cluttered with unnecessary information the black & white artwork is nice and easy on the printer too.

The S'rulyan Vault
by Kai P.
Publisher: Kort'thalis Publishing
Date Added: 01/20/2017 19:18:20
The S'rulyan Vault # The PDF contains a short history of the region and dungeon, original artwork by Bojan Sucevic, and several random tables for making this dungeoncrawl easier to run and more interesting. „ So says the sales text. One needs to understand that this product REALLY -just- is + the short history of the region and the vault + one map (offered in two visual styles) that may be used as a geomorph to create the dungeon + about one page of descriptions for four named NPC + about a dozen random tables (the largest a d100 table) to generate the dungeon (or: ideas to generate the dungeon). Six of these are meant to generate some random fortune telling which (quote from the product) \"may or may not have any bearing upon the campaign\". To give an example of what the tables are like, I will reveal to you the first six entries of a d20 table that is titled „What is in the dungeon?“ (and is meant to be used to determine what is in a given room or corridor, I guess). ##############...

White Box : Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game
by Michael M.
Publisher: Seattle Hill Games
Date Added: 01/20/2017 19:11:38
White Box : Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game I have read or purchased a lot of OSR retro clones and most of them are great in their own right, but they always have a few design and rule modifications that don\'t sit well with me personally. White Box: Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game is one of the best. I enjoy the layout, design and delivery of the rules/options and I have often felt that the Thief class percentile abilities always needed to be a simpler d6 mechanic. This is the White Box OSR game I have patiently waited for. even the prices for a print copies are excellent. ...

Big List of RPG Plots
by Lord N.
Publisher: Cumberland Games & Diversions
Date Added: 01/20/2017 18:39:45
Big List of RPG Plots I really like the premise of the product. A handy tool for gms on general plot ideas, twists, and other story telling tidbits. These provide a solid foundation that serves as a stepping stone to leap at a much greater and epic story of your own. What I don\'t like about it is that even though it is supposed to be focusing on short stubs of plots, it feels rather short all in all. I could think of topics, ideas and bits to fill another book like that or maybe flesh out some ideas as examples or go into some tropes/clichés and how to avoid them etc. Good thing it was on sale, as I might feel a little underwhelmed by the length otherwise. Otherwise, the writing is nice, scan/image quality is excellent and the usefulness of the book is undeniable. ...

Night Horrors: Conquering Heroes
by Maxime L.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 01/20/2017 18:21:01
Night Horrors: Conquering Heroes The first full-sized sourcebook for Beast: the Primordial (after a solid Ready-made characters one), Night Horrors: Conquering Heroes is a collection of antagonists, but in classic Night Horrors fashion offers detailed, interesting elements for all of them. The book is divided in three parts: first Heroes, the titular characters who hunt Beasts (and are NOT Hunters, as a sidebar reminds us). Then Beasts, most of which have experienced the Inheritance (three types of transformation which usually turn into a Beast into something more suitable for NPCs). And finally, something entirely new - the Insatiables, a new type of creatures who hunt Beasts themselves. Each chapter is made of unique examples, all with interesting backstories and different approaches. A couple of new Heroic Gifts, Numina, and entirely new powers for the Insatiables can be found in there as well. Beast being a new game, and one in which there is considerable freedom to create characters and antagonists, any new ma...

Roleplaying Emotion
by Scott H.
Publisher: Dancing Lights Press
Date Added: 01/20/2017 18:12:12
Roleplaying Emotion I really like some of the other books in this series, but I would not recommend this one. I\'ll give you a synopsis: This is an RPG rules mechanic that keeps track of which emotions your character is feeling. There are 10 categories of emotions, and you choose how much your character is affected by each one. The mechanical effect is that if you\'re attempting a task while trying to hide or control one of your emotions, either because you feel it too much or too little, then you apply a penalty to the roll. That\'s it. There\'s no reason to make this book 66 pages long or to charge $7 for it....
