Calidar, In Stranger Skies Fantastic illustrations and maps. great start on a new world in the vein of The Princess Ark series in old Dragon magazines. I really look forward to future publications. I also love the fact it is generally system agnostic.

100 Miscellaneous Instruments
by Dwayne S.
Publisher: Lee's Lists
Date Added: 06/27/2016 09:40:44
100 Miscellaneous Instruments I was disappointed in the product. This is the first time I have purchased one of the "100 ..." documents and I was expecting a bit more. Just a list of names. I expected a sentance or two to accompany the name to at least give an idea of what the instrument is. Some are obvious just because of its ubiquity, but others I would have to look up to even get an idea if the instrument was wind, stringed, percussion, etc. If I need to look them up, then I don't need the list and can just google for musical instruments. It is what it advertised - a list of 100 instruments. But just names?!? For this reason, I will probably not purchase any further "100 ..." products....

Campaign Map 1 : The Northern Kingdom
by David H.
Publisher: Crooked Staff Publishing
Date Added: 06/27/2016 09:38:01
Campaign Map 1 : The Northern Kingdom This is a stunningly beautiful map. Not only is it artistic and well-designed from a mapmaking standpoint, it makes sense geographically, unlike many fantasy maps. What I mean is, rivers flow the way they should, mountains look like real mountain ranges, forests look like forests do on on real maps, towns are placed sensibly (by river fords, etc). There are no silly pun-based place names. There is a clear Tolkien influence in the names. The creator gives you an unlabeled versions so you can use the map for your own campaign if you prefer....

V20 Lore of the Clans
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 06/27/2016 09:37:42
V20 Lore of the Clans If you have been playing Vampire: The Masquerade for any time, you probably have a stack of clan 'splatbooks' giving you the low-down on the various clans of vampires (especially if you are an experimental role-player and don't stick to identical characters all the time). Here notes on all thirteen clans have been gathered together into a single sourcebook containing a wealth of vampire history, tradition and outright lies, all ready for you to delve into. Each chapter addresses the nature and traditions of a single clan from the standpoint of a vampire who is a member of that clan. How truthful are they? Well, about as truthful as any vampire is, and most of them make politicians look vaguely honest. Starting with the history of the clan, the chapter also contains information about how the clan operates tonight, and provides a range of new powers, merits, flaws, and other rules information which can be used to customise a typical clan member as you please. The approach is vaguel...

Advanced Fighting Fantasy 2nd Ed
by Diogo N.
Publisher: Arion Games
Date Added: 06/27/2016 09:32:44
Advanced Fighting Fantasy 2nd Ed I began my journey through the RPG hobby with those little green books where you chose where to go next, which action to take and what would you say. The Fighting Fantasy books were a great introduction to fantasy gaming, and when I found out about Advanced Fighting Fantasy (Dungeoneer) I was thrilled! Now, almost 20 years have passed, and a second edtion of AFF has been released by Arion Games. But this is essentialy the same game. The same simplicity and elegance remain in the system, with some improvement I might say. There isn't a set in stone class system, so you can make your character anyway you want it. You even have the option to do "Point Buy" character creation or go full "Random Stats" as a traditional Old Schooler, which I love! The setting isn't fully described in this book (that's what the Titan book is all about) but you get the feeling of it and it's really great! It's a more mature, sober and darker fantaasy setting than the ones we usually get from the more wel...

Age of Shadow : Hex Map 2
by David H.
Publisher: Crooked Staff Publishing
Date Added: 06/27/2016 09:27:45
Age of Shadow : Hex Map 2 Another excellent product from Crooked Staff. Like Hex Map 1, which this map borders, this one comes in both labeled and unlabeled versions so you customize it for your own campaign or use the unlabeled maps as player handouts. The cartography is, as usual, excellent, and you could believe this is a real map- which is rare in fantasy products. Locations from the Crooked Staff "Encounters in the Northlands" scenario book are on this map. Highly recommended!

Age of Shadow : Hex Map 1
by David H.
Publisher: Crooked Staff Publishing
Date Added: 06/27/2016 09:22:23
Age of Shadow : Hex Map 1 One of the best map products I've ever purchased. Worth much more than its very reasonable price. Very attractive and artistic, and also cartographically sensible. A nice touch is that it comes in an unlabeled version, so you can add your own names if you prefer and use it in a variety of settings.

Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 06/27/2016 07:09:38
Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition I have mixed feelings about this product. The book is too heavy for using it at a gaming table easily. The binding is ok, and I have had no problems with it yet. The quality of the illustrations varies a lot, the quality of the printing in the heavy paperweight version is ok, and the space management and layout of the elements of the book is a bit underwelming. "Ok" means "sufficient, but not great". The books gathers a lot of gaming content. It touches the History and metaphisics of Mage, the worlds beyond Earth, and allows for player characters from the Traditions, the Technocracy and the Disparate Alliance factions. It covers a lot of topics but does not move into much depth. Some players claim that certain things are explained in not a deep enough detail for using them in the game despite taking many pages of the book. I am prety sure any compenent Storyteller will manage to make something out of the content even if it is not explained in full detail, though. The conten...

Wardens of the Wild (PF/5e)
by Rob K.
Publisher: Total Party Kill Games
Date Added: 06/26/2016 23:36:13
Wardens of the Wild (PF/5e) Wardens of the Wild contains options for both Pathfinder and Dungeons and Dragons 5e focusing on the Elves. It covers 6 elven races with paragon classes for each, 2 modified classes, new or collected class options from different existing supplements, and new spells for both editions. They cover lore for the race types as well as lore for the elves in general. I have not had a chance to test out any of the new options for balance in my own games yet but some of the new rules might have to be modified for my campaigns. It was nice to have the 5e rules in here as well, they don’t have as much material out there yet for player options outside of four books. A few of the options are duplicates from Pathfinder's Advanced Race Guide which has been out for a while. I have the pdf version right now but at some point will want to pick up the hard cover of this as well. ...

[WOIN] Space

Publisher: EN Publishing
Date Added: 06/26/2016 23:13:10
[WOIN] Space I am one of the people who backed the campaign to put this system into print, and I have only just got to the stage where I was able to start reading the books. There is so much information in this handbook that it's crazy, but it's presented in an easy to read manner. There are just enough charts to make even the numerical informaton simple to follow. This book is a fantastic read, and provides enough options and information to be useful in almost any sci-fi space setting. But better still, the material invokes a sense of nostalgia for so many space-based books, movies, and tv series. As a sci-fi buff, and a bit of a science geek, I loved reading through this for the detail, as well as the mood setting of it's examples of play....

Bards of Ur
by Gaetan V.
Publisher: Genius Loci Games
Date Added: 06/26/2016 03:03:05
Bards of Ur This is neat idea with an overall sloppy execution. The adventure is 8 pages: cover, one area map, one random Balor picture. The first page provides a great introductory idea, but it fails to even summarize the overall adventure. It doesn't talk about "the band" or the werewolves or the timelines or anything really. The whole quest feels like an awkward railroad. The sloppy parts are everywhere. * page 2 is a map with no scale and no cardinal indicator * page 4 tells you to roll 2d6 for information. It then provides an outcome for what happens when you roll at 1 along with two outcomes for the value 2. * NPC stat blocks are just giant walls of unformatted, hard to read text. This is a PDF document, adding extra pages is free and makes everyone's experience better. * There are a few "railroad contingencies" of the sort of _"if the PCs don't comply, bad things happen"_. * Some of the checks seem wrong. Tracking down a werewolf camp requires a DC 20 Int (Investigation) check, b...

Men & Monsters of the Aegean (BASH Fantasy)
by BENJAMIN N.
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
Date Added: 06/25/2016 22:25:04
Men & Monsters of the Aegean (BASH Fantasy) For the most part, MEN AND MONSTERS FO THE AEGEAN is a monster book for the BASH: FANTASY rules. However, it also does a good job of sketching out a setting based upon ancient Greece. The Aegean setting, is the magically infused world of Greek myth, mixed lightly with traditional fantasy elements thanks to a war with the titans, known as the Cataclysm, which devastated and altered the entire region (sinking islands and forging mountains) and also brought back a number of forgotten races and beasts not seen in ages (many of the familiar demi-humans and monsters of DnD fantasy). The book provides two fantastic, colour maps of the region (one for Aegean region and another of the greater Mediterranean area). There is also a useful map of the island of Kos, the center of the Swords of Kos fantasy setting (described in greater detail in other Skirmisher Publishing products). Still, there is enough information in this book to comfortably integrate your players into the world of ancient Gre...

Men & Monsters of the Aegean (BASH Fantasy)
by Wilfredo M.
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
Date Added: 06/25/2016 17:52:14
Men & Monsters of the Aegean (BASH Fantasy) As the title indicates, Men & Monsters of the Aegean is a useful bestiary for the Sword of Kos setting in the BASH Fantasy game. The fact that it describes creatures from classical mythology makes it a great reference source for other games or even when writing fiction, as well. My favorite feature is the fact that the book makes it clear that most of these creatures are not necessarly malicious or uninteligent, and that violence is not the only answer when dealing with them. In fact every "monster" comes with an 'Adventure Hook' that shows how it can be used. Some of the hooks can be even be tied together for a longer adventure. If I had a nit to pick, it would have to be the art. It ranges from crude drawings to full paintings. While I feel this is hardly important, some people might wonder at the inconsistency. Overall, M&MOTA is a very well put-together sourcebook, more than just a simple bestiary. Recommended for fans of Mythology and Fantasy....
