DRAGONLOCK: Dungeon Starter Set This product pushed me over the edge to purchase a 3D printer. While I am learning the in's and out's of 3D printing, I am more than happy with the quality of the models. In just over a week the designer has addressed several minor issues customers were having with certain models/software slicers. Tom and Fat Dragon, as well as the community over at the forums believe in this product and want it to succeed. I'm looking forward to the rest of the sets as they are published.

Chill Third Edition

Chill Third Edition I backed Chill 3rd Edition on Kickstarter, and found my first chance to run it three weeks ago, at IndieCon gaming convention on the south coast of England. Each game was going to be with players who had no experience of Chill. To set the scene; when I run a game, I tend to come up with a plot first, and then find a system that'll match it and use that game's setting to fill in any blanks. I wrote two games - an action / investigation horror scenario named Mountains of BLOOD and a pure investigative horror scenario named The Haunting of Goldbrook Bridge. Having recently received my hard copy of Chill, and finding the rules remarkably easy to understand, setting intriguing, and artwork fantastic, I decided this was the game to use to make my scenarios unfold. The first thing to note was that for a game none of the players in either group had played before, they picked up the system and setting incredibly swiftly. The % dice mechanic, gradients of success and failure (colossal, exc...

Pridnor I'm a big sucker for maps, but unluckily I also suck big time at creating them by myself. Which made bying this map a no-brainer, especially at this low price. What you get is a full-color map for GMs and a greyscale map as a player handout. Both look great, though I personally prefer the full-color part. In fact, this is kind of a two-in one map because it contains Pridnor and Darlath, both part of the mapper's world of Lerchanth, which I automatically got for free as part of the transaction. In the description, Pridnor is called a continent, which would make Darlath another one, so this card nearly suffices as its own campaign world. Luckily, there's no scale on the map, so you could easily insert it into your own world as a big isle complex (if there's no place for additional continents, that is). There are some minor and one greater nitpick I have with this map as follows: 1. If taken as a continent I wonder how many countries are located on Pridnor. There seem to be no ca...

Baby Bestiary Wallpapers If you have the book then you know precisely what to expect. Cute wallpapers of baby monsters from the book illustrations. Specifically five of them at three resolutions ranging from 1024x768 to 2880x1800 (so three sets of five images sampled at different resolutions for 15 jpgs). Certainly worth a dollar if you like cute monster babies!

Dresden Files RPG: Paranet Papers Retracting my previous review as I learned it was my device that had an outdated version of Adobe. I apologize for the negative initial review. Upon looking closer it isn't terrible. It's actually great and adds some new narratives in the book which I appreciate.

Chronicle of the Gatekeepers Sidetrek: Speaking the Same Language (PFRGP) An review This installment of the chronicle of the gatekeepers campaign serial clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, 1/2 page advertisement, leaving us with 5.5 pages of content, so let's take a look! This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players should jump to the conclusion. ... .. . Okay, only GMs around? There is something odd, about similarities between worlds when you think about it: From dominant races to linguistic similarities, there are parallels in spite of vastly diverging cultures. I mean, oddly, PCs had not much acclimation issues on NeoExodus, right? Well, Large-Biter needs the PCs to verify something - namely whether the activation of the Nexus Gateway that brought them here was a fluke - and hey, if they're stranded on the other side, at least they're home, right? Pretty neat: If the PCs have played In His Bad Books, they'll have an easier tim...

Bite Me! The Gaming Guide to Lycanthropes An review This massive book clocks in at 126 pages of content, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of editorial, 2 pages of ToC, 4 pages of SRD, 1 page backer-thanks, 3 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 113 pages of content, so let's take a look, shall we? But first, before we do, let me mention something: This massive book is basically a compilation of material I have already least, for the most part: We have the lycanthrope-archetypes, the wereblooded races, the skindancers and the excellent advice/rules-book on actually playing lycanthropes and how to handle them in your campaign - I have already covered, in extensive detail, mind you, all of these pdfs, so in case you require an in-depth analysis, I'll just point you there. The book begins with a nice introduction to the subject matter by Ann Dupuis before venturing forth into the chapter on playing lycanthropes - which still remains one of the most useful components for a GM or player cont...

Eidolons An review This installment of 13th Age Monthly clocks in at 8 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let's take a look! By a route obscure and lonely, Haunted by ill angels only, where an eidolon, named night, on a black throne reigns upright, I have reached these lands but newly From an ultimate dim Thule From a wild weird clime that lieth, sublime, Out of space - out of time. Sorry, I couldn't help myself. It's my immediate association whenever I hear the word "eidolon" - and no, in 13th Age, they are not the customizable pets of summoners. Instead, eidolons are pretty much powerful spirits shaped by a central core reality and governing principle - they basically are single-minded agents of a concept or ideology given form. Their origins are shrouded in mystery and their devotion to the core-concept that constitutes their reality may put them at odds with one another or make them unrel...

The Lonely Coast

The Lonely Coast I came across Raging Swan press from a little blog that Mr. Broadhurst wroteabout 10 things to say when your players find nothing. I thought it was genius and my fellow gamers at the Conan RPG Facebook page said that pretty much everything he wrote was golden, so I went and checked it out. I love RPGing. I prefer playing but I also love telling the stories too. However, I am really busy between work and grad school so I don't always have time to put together something good and interesting. That is where The Lonely Coast comes in. It is simply a beautifully put together campaign area perfect for quick play. The Lonely Coast has a fantastic feel to it. It is definitely a magical place, with wizards and golblins and elves, however it presents this kind of stuff in a way that is still mysterious and wonder inspiring. This is a huge problem I have with other settings that present magic as woven in to even the most basic things. As a fan of Conan and low fantasy, I can't say how much ...

Tall Ruined Walls Paper Models
by David M.
Publisher: Dave Graffam Models
Date Added: 11/24/2015 15:17:39
Tall Ruined Walls Paper Models This is a very useful set. The wide variety of different wall elements and textures provided makes for a large number of combinations, even without further adaptation. My slight reservation is based on my not being a fan of walls of zero-thickness thus being too much like theatrical scenery rather than representations of real structures. However in the unlikely instance of anyone else sharing that opinion, with a bit of effort (and possibly balsa-wood) walls of a scale-ish thickness can be achieved without too much difficulty by anyone with a modicum of skill (and enthusiasm, of course). Based on the door height, the basic scale is about 1:56. To be a bit pedantic this makes the bricks huge for that scale, but strange to say, I rather think they look better that way here. David Graffam’s graffics are as appealing as usual and look particularly well as printed even, or particularly, when on a low-ink setting. If ruined walls are what you require, you need look no further....

Paper Tanks - KV-1

Publisher: Lord Zsezse Works
Date Added: 11/24/2015 14:33:18
Paper Tanks - KV-1 I tend not to do a lot of detailed papercraft, and having seen other models that are 11 pages of parts, clearly this isn't the most detailed type of model out there. But, for me, it was pretty fiddly. The instructions could possibly have been a little clearer. The pieces could have been laid out differently maybe to make it easier to assemble. But, I built it, and it's gorgeous! There are four textures to choose on the tank, and it has two subtle variants of the turret you can build. The turret is removable, and turns. I recommend tweezers, paperclips and other little tools that may help put pressure on tiny tabs in hard-to-reach places. I also struggled to find something that would let me roll up the gun barrel. It's quite small. In the end, I was able to roll the paper (I used heavy matte photo paper) around a chopstick to get a slight curve, then a nail, then a wooden skewer, and finally the nozzle of a can-of-air that I had in my office. That finally got it rolled up nice and ti...

The B/X Rogue

Publisher: Necrotic Gnome Productions
Date Added: 11/24/2015 12:06:41
The B/X Rogue I love new B/X classes. If I have demonstrated nothing else here it is that. So when +Gavin Norman of the excellent City of Iron blog and Necrotic Gnome Productions came out with a new B/X class, well I had to get it. Gavin has already given us some great classes in his Theorems & Thaumaturgy and The Complete Vivimancer. Now he takes on the thief archetype in The B/X Rogue. I say archetype because what this book tries (and succeeds, but more on that in a bit) to do is create a Rogue class that encompasses all of the various "sub-classes" we have seen on the thief over the years. How he does it is both very elegant and very, very basic, if not Basic. Like the thief the rogue has a number of talents at his/her disposal. Instead of a percentile (or d20) roll the rogue is assumed to be fully proficient in their talent. The differences lie in the choice of talents and some of the talents themselves. The example given is the iconic Remove Traps. If a rogue has this at 1st level ...

Publisher: Jon Brazer Enterprises

Book of Friends and Foes: Ratfolk of the Ruins (PFRPG) This product is a NPC supplement of Ratfolk. There is a basic write up of the Ratfolk race, but most of it is NPC write ups. If you want more material for Ratfolk, this is not the item for you. If want NPCs with interesting backstories, this IS the product for you. The Hero Labs files do not appear to work with Hero Labs, being .por files and not .hl files.

2300 AD Ranger

2300 AD Ranger This book combines sourcebook information about the planet Kormoran, the fourth planet of 82 Eridani, and an adventure set thereon... so you can use it in different ways. Perhaps the party has a reason to visit Kormoran, so you have data about it, then you might choose to run the adventure, or you may bring them there - or even start a campaign there - purely to use the adventure, then you have additional information about the place should they decide to remain there afterwards. One of the interesting things about Kormoran is that it is the homeworld of a sentient species called the Ebers. It also is home to Arab and Texan colonies who don't exactly get along. Interesting indeed... and in 'interesting' adventure is often to be found. Indeed, this tension is the core of the adventure itself, which sees the party embroiled in a three-way struggle between Arabs, Texans and Ebers. Can they bring peace? We begin, however, with sourcebook material, beginning with chapters covering the 82 ...
