Dead Light
by Dan C.
Publisher: Chaosium
Date Added: 12/23/2014 20:37:03
Dead Light I found that this scenario served as a great introduction to the new edition of the COC rules. I ran it with the free quickstart rules for five friends who had never played an RPG. The scenario provides numerous opportunities for roleplaying and allows the keeper to present the mechanics at whatever pace best suits his players; this was very helpful in my case as a steep learning curve might have turned off my players. My players liked the plot, but I believe it was the atmosphere that really hooked them. I was surprised by the quality of the writing and the editing. I have read perhaps a dozen or so collections published by Chaosium--and many more third-party products--which I'd describe as "easy reads". Here is an excerpt from "Dead Light": "Looking out into the storm between the flashes of lightning, a farmer’s truck has just swerved to avoid hitting the gas pumps. The farmer babbling incoherently about a 'Dead Light' he saw on the road and who is now passed out at one ...

Shadows over Vathak: Colonies - Game Master's Guide
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Fat Goblin Games
Date Added: 12/23/2014 17:39:27
Shadows over Vathak: Colonies - Game Master's Guide An Endzeitgeist.com review This GM's Guide clock in at 42 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving us with 37 pages of content, so let's take a look! Analogue to the Player's Guide, the DM's Guide begins with hand-out-level detailed parchments providing an aptly-written in-character introduction to the matter at hand and provide a solid example of the threat suffusing the setting - and then, we dive into the respective local material. From the get-go, one realizes one thing - the crew of Fat Goblin Games obviously realized what ought to be in the GM's guide - where the player's guide sported tantalizing hints and general information on towns, the GM's guide provides full-blown settlement statblocks. On a extremely nitpicky side, I'm not a fan of round numbers for the demographics listed for the various cities; I prefer exact numbers over general notions of population, but I'm aware that this is just me being exceeding...

Advanced Races 11: Shadow Fey (Pathfinder RPG)
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Kobold Press

Advanced Races 11: Shadow Fey (Pathfinder RPG) An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the advanced races-series clocks in at 19 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 15 pages of content, so let's take a look! So...shadow fey. I was not pleasantly surprised to see this book hit shelves, mainly due to *LOVING* shadow fey to death. "Courts of the Shadow Fey" is one of my favorite adventures...ever. And we all remember what a certain good drow ranger did to the beloved and fierce dark elves. So let's take a look and see whether this book offering shadow fey as a player-race ruins their appeal or manages to maintain it! First of all, the write-up surprised me with one particularly smart decision - emphasizing the variety among shadow fey, thus denoting that they do not form a uniform species. Secondly, their mindset is pretty well explained, thus rendering actually portraying them as PCs easier. Oh, and quoting La Belle Dame Sans Merci? NICE! ...

Shadows over Vathak: Colonies - Player's Guide An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive player's guide clocks in at 34 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with a massive 29 pages of content, so let's take a look! Withered parchment, with half-concealed pencil drawings in the back, a small splotch of blood at the bottom right corner of the page - there's a reason layout designer and artist Rick Hershey is as prolific and well-regarded as he is. From the very get-go, you'll realize one thing - this book is beautiful. I own all Ravenloft supplements ever released and have a vast collection of horror-themed books beyond that. This ranks among the most beautiful - but that's one factor Fat Goblin Games always managed to pull off, so let's see whether taking John Bennett on board has helped the writing and crunch to keep a consistent quality - the intro-narrative on the parchments does make one hope for the best. The very first thing you'll notice, would be ...

Prestige Archetype: The Eldritch Hunter
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Purple Duck Games
Date Added: 12/23/2014 17:30:02
Prestige Archetype: The Eldritch Hunter An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Prestige Archetype-series clocks in at 8 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, ~1/2 a page of editorial, leaving us with 5 1/2 pages of content, so let's take a look! First question - what are prestige archetypes? Well, they are essentially a breakdown of a regular PrC into a full-blown 20-level spanning class - so no, these classes don't necessarily mean that you'll have a universal archetype (wouldn't have worked in this context, I think), instead providing a retooled playing experience so you don't have to work your way up to the PrC via classes you don't want to play. So that's definitely a pro-side. On the con-side, *personally*, I treat PrCs as very much tied to organizations etc., emphasizing the "prestige"-component as opposed to archetypes, which are more traditions in my game. I'm not the target audience of these books, but I will take a stab at them anyways. The eldritch hunter base class receives d8, 2+I...

White Plume Mountain Dungeon Tiles!

Publisher: Red Pub Games
Date Added: 12/23/2014 16:27:20
White Plume Mountain Dungeon Tiles! This the second classic adventure battle map pack that this publisher has put up here. I am waiting for EVERY classic adventure to be done this way. Do you have a subscription to these? I'm in!!! Seriously these are invaluable items. They are sized so that a what your light sees is about the size of the tiles he/she has made. There is enough room details to not 'give away' the contents but enough to place the scene nicely. I like the fold up doors, they areal are nice to be printed all at once. Though I might suggest 'wings' on the door fold ups to help them stay UP. ;) My group is just going into this adventure and like Santa Granting my wish BAMP here is the battle maps I need!!! Thank you!!!! (SO much I bought it twice just to show my support!)...

Fiasco
by Guntis V.
Publisher: Bully Pulpit Games
Date Added: 12/23/2014 15:08:02
Fiasco A really standout game. Fabulous, I'll say - and innovating for sure. Upon reading about it first, all I noticed was that it was GM-less. Didn't impress me... When I had read several high praises and gave it a try, Fiasco proved to give me something I didn't have in 'traditional' RPGs. I feel Fiasco like taking the most memorable episodes of several 'traditional' tabletop sessions, and having played just these in one session. All the not-so-epic episodes just eliminated. Like in cinema, as the creators of Fiasco say: you don't watch every damn mundane thing, likewashing pots and laundry - only the adventurous moments. The innovative side (in my humble opinion) is how Fiasco manages the creation of characters, plots and outcomes. And - for surprise to those used to roll dice for attacks, saving throws, damage, cure wounds, ad infinitum - no need for any! Outcome voted by others, and it works brilliantly. Perhaps because no one is annoyed for a failure: after all, it's a Fia...

Retrostar -- Lightspeed Adventure Manual (Quick-Play)
by Bryan B.
Publisher: Spectrum Games
Date Added: 12/23/2014 13:33:55
Retrostar -- Lightspeed Adventure Manual (Quick-Play) Quick note: I am big fan of Spectrum and have one thing published through them for Cartoon Action Hour, I have no writing for Retrostar. Well first thing this is quick start so does not have full rules or examples, beyond that I would say this looks fun. This is a game very focused on reproducing feeling of 70's Science Fiction TV and builds the rules to do that. The basic system is built around rolls that work not only for success or failure, but control of characters. Depending on roll the player controls the characters success and describes what happens, the next level allows players to say how they failed or GM describes how character succeeded the last level GM says how player failed. There is no damage system or such, everything comes down to rolls. To make things feel more like TV each session is broken into 5 acts with 12 rolls allowed for each act. This will make players think about there rolls and limits the normal massive rolling normal systems have. There is...

The Library

The Library Very long, narrow library. The lampshades and types of chairs give a more modern feel than I expected. I see a possible option for adding a secret door at the opposite end from the open doorways.

Old Prison

Old Prison Glad I found this older file. Small gaol isolated in the countryside. I liked that it includes surrounding area for approaching the prison. You can add any dungeon below this map that you wish, if your adventurers are courageous enough (or stupid enough) to delve deeper.

Medieval Market

Medieval Market I find the floor tiles a little too busy and detailed, I would rather see the merchant stall detail kept and the open spaces less cluttered. Obviously having hex, square and blank of the same market is an advantage.

Death to Alignment!
by Jonathan A.
Publisher: Quasar Knight Enterprises
Date Added: 12/23/2014 10:31:37
Death to Alignment! If you've ever taken the time to change one of the basic rules of a game system, you realize how much work it takes to make your changes comprehensive and consistent. That's exactly what this book does for you--and let's face it: how many of us are actually happy with the d20ish alignment system, as written? This book presents an intelligent, well-researched, and conscientiously transparent means for removing or replacing alignment in your Pathfinder games. The basic system it presents is a way for you to take alignment out of your Pathfinder game without breaking any of the existing classes. Its changes are rational, consistent, and easy to implement. They're also spelled out in detail by section, so they're simple to understand and reference, and it's easy to modify or ignore anything you don't like piece-by-piece. In addition, the author includes a fair number of alternative options to the alignment system. The systems it proposes are, as with the rest of the content, well tho...

Heroic Maps - Geomorphs: Labyrinth: The Minotaur's Lair This map could be adapted to a any game that needs a 10 X 10 labyrinth surrounding a 7 X 7 temple/wizard tower/library with bones and skulls scattered around. Only 4 stars because this is my first Heroic Maps download and I need more of the same for a large dungeon crawl.
