5e Creature Decks: More Constructs, Giants, Humanoids, & Undead

5e Creature Decks: More Constructs, Giants, Humanoids, & Undead I backed this series of cards during Inkwell Ideas' kickstarter and I have to say that I am very glad that I did. The stat blocks are well laid out and the illustrations are well done. Some of the cards do have smaller fonts than others but that is what is required for the more complex creatures but the small font size is hardly a detractor since the alternative would be spreading the creature's info over multiple card which defeats the purpose of having information on cards in the first place. In addition, I like the fact that I no longer have to hold up my Monster Manual and show my players what they've encountered while simultaneously trying to cover a stat block and any text that reveals the creature's name. Now I just hold up the appropriate card and they can see the creature without any spoilers. I opted to go with deck boxes for each set of cards when I ordered the prints and having done so I was expecting them to arrive in a cards took pack like with playing cards so I w...

DDAL04-05 The Seer (5e)

Date Added: 07/17/2016 13:00:11
DDAL04-05 The Seer (5e) ***DDAL04-05 The Seer*** is the fifth adventure for Season 4, which is also titled "Part Four of Misty Fortunes and Absent Hearts". This review does contain spoilers, so please do not read below if you haven't played the adventure. The reviewer has played and run the adventure. This event is another Season 4 disappointment, but the truly said thing is there is potential for such a better event instead of what is presented. Again AL staff fails its fan base by putting out poorly edited and developed adventures, relying on skilled Game Master to pick up their shortcomings. Below are specific points of failure, amidst few bright spots. Two-hour events: Let’s lead with the biggest disappointment of Season 4 – the implementation of more 2-hour events. Not sure what the reason or logic is behind these shorter events, but as a player they are nearly a waste of time. One to two encounters and 2-3 random encounters? That is not an event, or a challenge, rather something to be spit out of ...

Ponyfinder - Princess Luminace's Guide to the Pony Pantheon

Ponyfinder - Princess Luminace's Guide to the Pony Pantheon What I really enjoyed about this work is that it really expands upon the goddesses and gods of Everglow. It was nice to see the additions of Apep, the Sea Mother, and some updates to Kara/the Swarm Queen. The bonus of having a new race to play with is also top notch! Good work, Silver Games!

Grand Safari
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Gypsy Knights Games
Date Added: 07/17/2016 10:59:23
Grand Safari One of the delights of Traveller is exploring new parts of the universe... and here's a whole campaign about doing just that. Set in the Gypsy Knights Games alternative Traveller universe, it puts the party as members of the Gentlemen's Club of Dashwood (an society you'll find in the book 21 More Organisations) who have booked themselves onto a hunting safari into the unsettled Hannibal Subsector (Leonidas Sector) which is located to spinward of the Dade Subsector in the Clement Sector. You can read about the Dade Subsector in the work Dade Colonies too. Nine pre-generated characters are provided but you can use your own - provided they are 'posh' enough (reckon on SOC 8+) to join the Club or can wangle an invitation from a member to join the trip. There are also safari staff and ship's crew roles, but these are probably best filled by NPCs. What we have here is a series of loosely-linked adventures which can be played in any order, linked by the theme of the Safari, which is a comp...

Barbarians Versus... RPG
by Luca L.
Publisher: Precis Intermedia
Date Added: 07/17/2016 06:34:38
Barbarians Versus... RPG Easily one of the most funny and entertaining rules-light RPGs on the scene. The setting is loosely defined, with broad strokes that help creating the mood and give more inspiration than hard data, the rules are very friendly both to newcomers to the tabletop RPG world and to old grognards that will enjoy the modicum of creativity given to players and GMs alike. A simple and very intuitive system to handle most situations - from combat to social mayhem, as barbarians are destined to - provides a very solid yet flexible framework. Players and GMs should work together to build up and better define the world and the situations to face during the adventures, and a fair bit of homework is needed to have something that will work for more than a one-shot adventure. It is also highly customizable for something different than cimmerians against dino-aliens, from something more akin to classic sword-and-sorcery to quite outlandish results. The real gem, is the sum of the parts: the fun...

The Skeletons
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Bully Pulpit Games
Date Added: 07/17/2016 03:39:44
The Skeletons I haven't had the chance to play it yet, but it's a very intriguing game. The rules "proper" are just one page (plus a second page of optional rules and things to try), and the rest are tables, somewhat akin to Fiasco's Playsets. You get to sets of tables: the standard one, and Sara Williamson's variant. This game is certainly not for everyone, and will probably vary wildly depending on which players you play with. I'm looking forward to trying this out. If you like "artsy" or indie games, or if the description sounded appealing, I think it's totally worth the eight bucks. If you or your players are into min-maxing and rules... stay away....

Children of Wyrms
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Fantastic Gallery
Date Added: 07/17/2016 02:44:12
Children of Wyrms Dragons drew me into Dungeons and Dragons and roleplaying in general. Hence, I have had to beg many DM’s and GM’s for the opportunity to roleplay half-dragons, wyrmlings and servants of wyrms. I have also created various options for PCs and NPCs alike for the games that I run. From both standpoints, this is a superb supplement. It adds additional flavor to the story of half-dragons, dragonkind and the fantasy world that includes them. Here are the items I especially liked: • The content draws on the existing framework that is familiar for those with any 3.x or Pathfinder experience. However, (IMO) some of the options given are overpowered for 3.5, though they seem to mesh for a Pathfinder campaign at first glance. • It offers an excellent template options for less-than-half-dragons (although focused on Silver, Gold and Brass, these can be easily drawn out to their relatives). The feats presented fill many voids appropriately. (That last opinion may be a confirmation bias, as they...

We Be Dragons
by Ryan T.
Publisher: Zenith Games
Date Added: 07/16/2016 22:19:14
We Be Dragons This is an excellent adventure well worth your two dollars! Running this one-shot was an absolute treat for players and GM alike. The pre-built wyrmlings are all made to fit a certain class archetype, like a healer or rogue, with familiar abilities, making them easy to pick up and play; the addition of iconic dragon abilities to each character, like flight and breath weapons, adds a level of depth and variety that is fun for new players and refreshing for experienced ones. The adventure is very concise, but with room to take as much time as you like approaching each of the encounters however you want. There is room for players to excel in tests of skill, combat, or socialization. The hook is very simple to its benefit, with a compelling villain. The ending leaves hooks for further GM invention, and hopefully sequels, with bigger dragons! If you're looking for a unique and fun one-shot adventure, don't miss this....
