Red Markets: A Game of Economic Horror

Red Markets: A Game of Economic Horror It's hard to imagine that we're looking an actual original take on zombies that makes them not only scary again, but also that the whole package is set in a beliveable near-future dystopia that generates so much excitement and amazing stories around the table like nothing before it. Absolutely crammed with ideas and inspiration, Red Markets weaves a perfect backdrop for you and your friends to craft characters in and watch them struggle to control the rate at which their lives crumble. More than a zomibe game, more than a poverty simulator, more than a soul-crushing, rip-roaring good time, Red Markets is the most fun I've had watching all my friends lose their will to live and demand to keep playing late into the night....

Red Markets: A Game of Economic Horror Disclaimer: Let me start out by saying that I backed the Kickstarter of this project. I have been a longtime fan of the crew of Role-Playing Public Radio (RPPR) and Caleb Stokes’ scenarios were some of the best (so good that I converted some of them so that I could run them in my Dark Heresy gaming group- I still hear them talk about Lover in the Ice). When I heard that Caleb was working on a zombie apocalypse-themed RPG setting (and after hearing some of the actual plays on RPPR) I was definitely interested. I have been looking to run a zombie apocalypse RPG after I retire my Dark Heresy game (which has been going on for nearly a decade now and counting) and didn’t really like the Dead Reign, All Flesh Must Be Eaten and End of the World: Zombie Apocalypse systems. I have finally finished reading Red Markets cover to cover and I think this is the system I’m going to use. Caleb spins a great story (over a 100+ pages) of how the zombie apocalypse happens in the near future. I found t...

Gold&Glory: Seven Deadly Dungeons
by Nathan C.
Publisher: GGstudio
Date Added: 11/22/2017 16:45:33
Gold&Glory: Seven Deadly Dungeons My first roleplaying experience was like many others in the form of a dungeon crawler. Over time I grew away from the systems that typically portrayed these and found my way to Savage Worlds. While SW is an amazing system, it always lacked a certain nostalgia that I had for dungeon crawls and their ilk. I can now officially say that this is no longer the case as Gold & Glory scratches the old school fantasy itch incredibly well. At first I thought that this would handle random dungeon creation with several example dungeons, and while it does so splendidly, the first 50ish pages include fast and random character creation, gear, rules to tweak the Magic and Miracles backgrounds to better reflect that D&D feel, easy encumberance rules, and some other nifty setting rules. I was expecting a random dungeon generator, what I got was that and so much more. As a bonus, I think that this product is fantastic for GMs new to Savage Worlds, particularly the monsters found in the book. Many ...

Finders of Fortune: Three Treasure-Seeking Prestige Classes

Finders of Fortune: Three Treasure-Seeking Prestige Classes Just got this and am very happy with the content, especially for the price! The art is a fun and evocative. I especially liked the Tomb-Robber,, which allows a rogue-y, ranger-y type to better survive the hazards involved in a career in archeological resource reallocation.

DDAL06-02 The Redemption of Kelvan (5e)

Date Added: 11/22/2017 15:47:41
DDAL06-02 The Redemption of Kelvan (5e) Lots of traps, plan accordingly!! If you have a combat heavy party, they will struggle with this one. If you have a very cerebral group, they will enjoy this adventure. It was a blast to run as a DM, and I admit I got a thrill out of watching my party struggle with the traps. Either they figured out the traps and blew the DC or they had no clue and I had to throw them a bone. My only complaint is the lack of Season 6 adventures, which is not the fault of the writer, but rather WOTC. It is fun to run - do so!...

Red Markets: A Game of Economic Horror [Transparency] I am a kickstarter backer. [/Transparency] A very strong contender for the best game released this year. Caleb Stokes is one of the best horror RPG scenario writers of the last decade, and in this his first RPG, he has proven himself to be one of the best RPG designers of that same period. Redmarkets is a game about poverty and its effects on us, shown through the lense of Zombies. In it you play Takers, a class of heroes who put the hobo into murder hobo. Whats more, every system of the game makes it abundantly clear that no well adjusted, healthy person would choose to be a taker, save that it offers the slim chance that the work may oneday let you and your loved ones escape abject poverty in a zombie haunted wastland. Victory for your taker, is retirement to the safe zone. In red markets, every decision has economic consequences, and ever mistake bitter consequences. All this is wrapped up in a neat and well-designed system that drives homes the games theme...

Red Markets: A Game of Economic Horror I betatested the system and backed the Kickstarter, and now I get to tell you about my favorite RPG. You might think that a 500-page book couldn't have a core mechanical system that's simple, fast, easy to learn, and highly flexible. Red Markets is all those things. It combines the best elements of traditional task-resolution skill-based gameplay with innovations from the best of the story game scene. And it puts its mechanic constantly at the service of a tight, focused game theme: everything costs resources. Economics as horror. Economic horror is a genre that you might not have ever heard of, but you've probably played before. The old school dungeon crawl where you're counting your torches and arrows. The sci fi game where you struggle to fix the oxygen system before you asphyxiate. The childhood game of Monopoly, desperately trying to miss landing on your sister's Boardwalk hotel. Any game where the tension and worry revolves around the questions, "Can I afford this?" "Should...

FrontierSpace Player's Handbook
by dana f.
Publisher: DwD Studios
Date Added: 11/22/2017 12:00:11
FrontierSpace Player's Handbook This is a well-done but incomplete product. As other reviewers have noted, it's very much done in the spirit of Star Frontiers, except that the game mechanics of FrontierSpace are much better - smooth, consistent, and pretty fast. The downside is that the book is quite incomplete - combat rules, for example, are in the Gamemaster's Guide, and although there are a selection of stock NPCs, there isn't a bestiary of aliens (other than alien PC races), monsters, and such. For that, you need the Gamemaster's Guide (which has a tiny selection of creatures along with good rules for crafting them). As such, there's a fair amount of prep-work from a GM, since you'll have to create adversaries from scratch continuously. I recommend the game, but be aware that what you're buying is not complete. If you're used to having to buy multiple books (like D&D), this won't be a major issue for you....

Red Markets: A Game of Economic Horror Up front here, I was a backer on Kickstarter for this game; that was because it looked like a new approach to a genre I'm quite fond of. I had no idea. Red Markets is a game set in the aftermath of an incomplete (as in it didn't completely destroy the world, though it seriously harmed it). Players are groups of what are called "Takers", outcast humans living in small post-apocalypse communities doing jobs for the main American culture out in the areas not controlled by said culture. The game is focused on the costs you pay to get by, with the setting as a basis to show that even in utterly horrific situations, people find a way to live, and try to thrive--and how they can fail even with good capability and drive. I'm not going to try to assess the mechanics because I've not actually played the game, so it'd be only abstract evaluation. It seems at the least functional, and potentially well supporting the theme. What I do want to mention is how astonishingly good the game...

Red Markets: A Game of Economic Horror Look, I back this kickstarter, yeah, but this book has such a fully realized world that everything seems like it'd be real. The system itself is very simple to use and understand.I've introduced it two two rpg groups blind and they were able to pick it up right away with very little confusion. The only thing I can see that is an issue with the book is the concept of economic horror not being everyone's cup of tea. Hebbanon Games knows why you came and doesn't hold your hand n the idea of what an rpg is, the book doesn't treat you as if its your first rpg, but even if it is, its not a bad one toget started with....

Red Markets: A Game of Economic Horror Full Disclosure: Kickstarter backer. This game does what it says on the tin. The system is original and flexible. It's also modular, so players and GM can run their games at variable levels of detail and difficulty. Want to run a high risk/high reward two fisted action game? You can do that. Want to run a slow burning grind of a game where the horror isn't the monster, but your balance sheet? You can do that. Physically, the book is one of the highest quality RPG books I've ever laid my hands on, Eclipse Phase included. The paper stock is heavy. The font is larger than normal, which is great, because I'm an old person with bad eyes. The artwork is evocative and inspirational. The binding is top notch. This won't fall apart under light stress. It's also thicker than the Pathfinder core book, for comparison. Mechanically, the system is tight. Skill based, not level based. Players build milestones and end goals, which precludes the inevitable mistake of a campaign going too long,...

FrontierSpace Referee's Handbook As a Star Frontiers fan for years I bought these books out of curiosity and was quite surprised to find a well designed game inside. Tons of information, the extra stuff I like such as: generation tables for systems, planets, etc. I like to create my own adventures and I will be moving them in this direction. The books are clean and well designed. There's not much I can add to the already great reviews for these products.
