Underworld Classes: Psilocybist
by Martin T.
Publisher: AAW Games
Date Added: 10/16/2014 11:29:03
Underworld Classes: Psilocybist The idea of a Mushroom based Prestige class was an interesting one and this class certainly adds to the abilities of someone who has the Mushroom Domain (which the character must have to take the class). The new Mushroom Domain spells are interesting, if slightly weird, and would certainly surprise PCs who came across an NPC who can cast them. However buyers of this book should be aware that half of the book is an exact copy of the Mushroom Domain/Mushroom Golem sections of the ... Underworld Races - Funglet ... book and so purchasers of that book are effectively getting just 8 new pages of material (all about the new Prestige Class). Because of this I give the book only a 2 rating, even though if purchased by itself it would have a 4 rating....

Murder in Corvis

Murder in Corvis Originally published at: http://diehardgamefan.com/2014/10/16/book-review-murder-in-c-
orvis-iron-kingdoms/ I’ll admit something upfront. I’ve never been interested in Iron Kingdoms or Warmachine. Both feel like a steampunk version of Warhammer and I already have enough RPGs and miniature combat games to pick up what feels like a derivative of something else. I’ve got a stack of Bones, Tomb Kings, Robotech RPG Tactics and my old D&D Tactics figures from when that game existed. However, I really do like Richard Lee Byers’ stories. I’m more a non-fiction reader, but I enjoy enough of his writing to know I’ll pick up something of his (especially a review copy) if I run into it. Besides, the last time I picked up a book by him from a RPG universe I wasn’t originally interested in (The Festival at Glenelg), I ended up reviewing three adventures from that game. So who knew? Maybe Murder in Corvis would make me curious enough to try out some of Privateer Press’ games. There was only one way ...

Demon: Interface
by P. B.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 10/15/2014 21:56:09
Demon: Interface This is something that we haven't ever seen before now, which makes it worth the price just to see how well it works, but it turns out that Demon: Interface actually works WELL! The stories offer views into the world of these creatures in a way that the game's books only hint at, and that's what great fiction adds to your chronicle. The mechanics that complement each story won't be equally useful for every troupe, but they each give insight into not just what happened in the story and show a peek at WHY it occurred. For the price of one book, this book pulls double-duty, and you won't find that either one suffers for the other!...

W20 Changing Breeds

W20 Changing Breeds Okay, before you read anything else from me, know that I am not a HUGE fan of Werewolf: the Apocalypse, but I do like it plenty. That said, I feel that this book is, without a doubt, my favorite of the 'splat' offerings from the entire line! Is it because of the comprehensive nature of the book? Well, not really... As some reviewers have pointed out, there are many holes in here, but I don't believe that it's anything that ruins the book as a whole. What you find here fills in much more than could ever have been shoehorned into the W20 core. So what if the werebats and the weretortises don't have every little Trait to make them the centre of a chronicle? They're lost lines, and the game's not named after them, after all. So, am I enamoured by the art? Sorta, sure... It's a lovely book, don't get me wrong. Yeah, the Apis are gnarly, there's any number of 'WTF?' sorts of images, and every single Bastet line doesn't get its own gorgeous image, but overall, the presentation remains ...

Tome of Twisted Things
by Sean H. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Little Red Goblin Games
Date Added: 10/15/2014 16:26:36
Tome of Twisted Things While not for every campaign, the Tome of Twisted Things is full of interesting and useful ideas and resources that could be easily incorporated into a campaign. Mostly they will fit into a campaign world where the fight between good and evil is brutal and where good is losing ground that is the sort of situation where the Darkborn and Avengers would thrive. My only real complaint is the pinkish background of the PDF which is a little disturbing to stare at. The Tome of Twisted Things is a selection of darkness-tinged resources for Pathfinder, new prestige and variant classes, a new race and supporting feats. It begins with the Darkborn prestige class who draw upon the power of evil to defeat evil, a classic conceit. They must balance their dedication to good with their increasing urge to do evil. The class has powers called ‘darkweaves’ that are activated by bidding their ‘wickedness’ against the purity of their target, which is an interesting mechanic. They gain some interes...

Wisdom from the Wastelands Issue #44: Unique Superscience Artifacts III
by Darrick D.
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
Date Added: 10/15/2014 14:17:59
Wisdom from the Wastelands Issue #44: Unique Superscience Artifacts III This collection of super-science artifacts are specifically for Mutant Future (with the aid of Labyrinth Lord's Advanced Edition Companion). Each has several capabilities, alternative uses, side-effects, etc. and they correspond with a mutant power, spell, or whatnot from one of those two books. However, GMs without any Labyrinth Lord or Mutant Future tomes (such as myself) can easily deduce their purpose. The artifacts are described at length. There are no three sentence objects or items here. So, the Oasis in a Pill, Orange Block, or Palace of Bones (my personal favorite) are a big deal. Big enough that an entire session should probably be built around them, if not a campaign. That's great for GMs who want to throw a quick adventure together in a matter of minutes - focus on an artifact! Of course, the Mother Seed could be plopped down inside a single encounter. Yet, that would be under-using it and the others, in my opinion. The art is less than stellar. That's someth...

Ultima Ratio - Im Schatten von MUTTER - Basisregelwerk
by Roger L. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Heinrich-Tüffers-Verlag
Date Added: 10/15/2014 09:17:40
Ultima Ratio - Im Schatten von MUTTER - Basisregelwerk ULTIMA RATIO – Im Schatten von MUTTER ist nicht etwa das Rollenspiel zu RTLs Schwiegermutter gesucht, sondern ein Erzählspiel in einem dystopischen Cyberpunk-Setting. In der Welt von MUTTER werden alle Vorgänge und Bürger über einen implantierten Chip namens KIND lückenlos von einer künstlichen Intelligenz kontrolliert. Das vorliegende Basisregelwerk vermittelt ausschließlich die Regeln, die benötigt werden. Dabei verspricht der Autor auf der Produkt-Website, dass das W4-Regelwerk eine Diskussion beendet, die so alt ist, wie das Rollenspiel selbst sei. Klappern gehört halt zum Handwerk. Die Spielwelt Das Basisregelwerk vermittelt, abgesehen von wenigen Hintergründen wie bei den Spezies, so gut wie keine Information, die über die Texte der Homepage hinausgeht. Die wenigen vorliegenden Texte sind eher unaufgeregt geschrieben und zeigen noch keine Innovationen auf, die man nicht schon aus anderen Settings kennt. An einigen Stellen stößt man auf Aussagen, die sich zwar nicht wid...

Obsidian Apocalypse (PFRPG)
by Simon H.
Publisher: LPJ Design
Date Added: 10/15/2014 02:13:23
Obsidian Apocalypse (PFRPG) I'm torn on this one, basically four out of five is a compromised review no matter how you look at it. Okay, let me explain. I have some signifigant gripes about this book BUT a lot of that feels more like a matter of taste and nitpicking. Even taking them as seriously as possible I'd still say the book earns a three out of five. On the other hand there are some things this book does really well and I'm feeling a bit guilty for not giving them more weight and giving it the five. The current other review does a really good job on the details so I'll not go into the full breakdown here. I think the problem is the book claims it's a setting and tries to pass itself off as one (even saying so on the cover) but I just can't feel it. It's basically a toolbox and rules expansion with a few seeds you could use for a setting. A REALLY excellent toolbox, don't get me wrong, but just a toolbox. I guess that's the real problem for me, there's the potential for four or five really exce...

Redemption: A Game of Tactics and Consequences
by joshua r.
Publisher: Silent Spirits Games
Date Added: 10/14/2014 22:30:11
Redemption: A Game of Tactics and Consequences I backed this game on Kickstarter on a whim as there is a derth of good 'classic' sci-fi amongst RPGs outside of the various incarnations of Traveller and a couple of recent FATE based games. Redemption was quite a surprise in that I got a very playable package that includes rules for everything from the personal scale to fleet level combat. The rule system I would describe as a mix of old and new school mechanics as it uses some aspect-like elements where it makes sense, and old fashioned crunch where it does not, thus avoiding some of the abstraction death spirals that FATE can find itself in (if 'being on fire' takes as long to explain/implement with 'new school' mechanics as grappling does with old school mechanics, it is a problem...) The included universe looks quite interesting, but the rules are not married to them and there is a very robust construction section for working out the toys needed to populate your own universe....

Mundus Novit: The Changed World - Source Book
by Dustin W.
Publisher: Dark Quest Games
Date Added: 10/14/2014 16:00:09
Mundus Novit: The Changed World - Source Book This is a warning to anyone who sees the "D&D/d20, 3.x/d20/OGL, d20 Modern" label for this product before they read the label saying that this setting is "System Agnostic": THE LATTER OF THESE TWO LABELS IS THE MORE ACCURATE ONE. My apologies for typing in all caps, but honestly, don't make the same mistake I did and expect there to be any new Basic or Advanced Classes, Occupations, Feats, Talent Trees, Weapons, or even monster or character stats here. This book is 100% "fluff," 0% "crunch," and thus has no such data in here. Rather, all you'll be getting is one big backstory behind the setting that lasts for several pages before it FINALLY describes the "Trigger Event" of December 23, 2003, when everything changes. You also get background information for each of the different organizations within this reality and tips on how to incorporate the ideas in this book into your own campaign, but...I'm sorry. The world described here just feels very bland and generic compared to the reali...

100 Oddities for a Creepy Old House This is great little piece of work by the Skirmisher Publishing group. This piece adds a nasty haunted cherry right on top of your old school horror game or a post apocalyptic adventure. This eight page piece of horror fueled nastiness is a great system neutral piece of work that you could add right into your own campaign right now. From Call of Cthulhu to even a OD&D style of Gothic adventure campaign this is a great addition to the DM's arsenal of tricks and traps that adds a nice haunted bit The price is right, the ideas fresh, the horror perfect for an evening's horror fueled adventure....

Book 10: Cosmopolite
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Mongoose
Date Added: 10/14/2014 08:16:00
Book 10: Cosmopolite If you choose a military or scout or merchant career for your character you have a wealth of options to choose from... but until now if you have decided that he is (or at least was before taking up adventuring) a Scholar or an 'ordinary' Citizen, you were a bit limited, at least as far as rules went, for what you could use to create your background - and that all-important skill set. First, though, there's the question of education. Before you even start your career proper your character might wish to attend university. This replaces your first term in a career, and like any path you need to roll successfully to get in. If you fail, you have to choose something else or even submit to the draft. Characters who'd like to get some real-world experience first may take a couple of terms in a career before going to university - this could be an opportunity for a career change if you have, say, served a couple of terms in the military, then go to study before embarking on a quite differen...

ERA for Rolemaster This application has huge potential! The complete lack of documentation is not helpful at all but the program is relatively intuitive once you realize the flow of the interface. I must admit that I did not view the Tutorial video before writing this and will modify my review if the tutorial answers all my questions. The free version is extremely limited but it has me interested enough to at least purchase Character Law and see what we have.
