Reach Adventure 2: Theories of Everything
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Mongoose
Date Added: 01/17/2018 09:52:58
Reach Adventure 2: Theories of Everything This adventure starts at Marduk (where the first adventure of this series took place) and involves a lot of time spent in Jump as the party travels to the Borite system. Although shipboard skills are useful there's plenty for everyone to do aboard the laboratory ship Insight III. If you did play Marooned at Marduk, this could be something the party does to pass time/earn some credits whilst their newly-acquired ship gets a well-needed refit. If you haven't, there's a suggestion for a compelling reason why the party might abandon their existing ship and take up this opportunity, or if they don't have a ship this presents an interesting job opportunity with good pay. The Referee's Information provides background about the Sindal subsector, Marduk and Borite. Most of this can be discovered by the party if they trouble to do any research in the library data or talk to the right people, it's up to you how much you want to share. We then find out about the Insight III, which is built as a...

Harlem Unbound
by James P.
Publisher: Darker Hue Studios
Date Added: 01/17/2018 05:59:55
Harlem Unbound Harlem Unbound is one of those games that you pick up, and don't put down because it's just that good of a read! It reminded me a lot of the high-quality setting development, research, and writing that I found in GURPS supplements. Chris Spivey takes you into the Harlem Renaissance and shares a rich part of America's history in a truly interesting and exciting way. Then, he carefully weaves the Cthulhu mythos into it. He provides you with everything you need to play a Gumshoe game in this era. You'll find story hooks, scenarios, supporting casts, and 2 beefy scenarios. One of the most important things about this book, however, is its subject matter. As Mr. Spivey points out right away in the Introduction, Harlem Unbound doesn't pull any punches when it comes dealing with racism. At first, this may make you reconsider purchasing, or playing in this setting. However, the setting outlined here is so rich, and lends itself so well to the Mythos, that passing it by would be...

5e NPCs: Goblins! Goblins! Goblins!

5e NPCs: Goblins! Goblins! Goblins! An Endzeitgeist.com review This NPC-collection clocks in at a massive 48 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page introduction, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 40 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This review was moved up in my reviewing-queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. All right, so, first things first: Not all goblins herein are regular goblins; instead, some employ rules from the Moar Goblins-pdf by Dire Rugrat Publishing. It should be noted that all rules taken from that book that are employed herein. This makes the goblins significantly more diverse and interesting and no, you won’t have issues using this book sans Moar Goblins. This book does provide a bit of a teaser for it and provides stats for the Tokoloshe snare trap, the nacht kabouter and the grindylow…and harpoons. Now, as far as challenge-range is concerned, the material herein ranges from challenge ½ to ch...

Mists of Akuma: Cursed Soul of the Scorpion Samurai An Endzeitgeist.com review This adventure for the Mists of Akuma-setting clocks in at 44 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 38 pages of content, so let’s take a look! Now it should also be noted that two pages of the pdf are devoted to providing a recap of the mechanics for both dignity and haitoku, the attributes introduced by Mists of Akuma. The module is intended for 7th level PCs and should be used with a well-rounded group. While this is intended to be run in the bleak, mist-shrouded lands of Soburin, the module works in other settings as well, provided you can tweak it to include Soburin’s peculiarities – i.e. Japanese Horror with a subdued steampunk angle. Now, it should be noted that the module does not per se require the Mists of Akuma setting book, though it most assuredly is recommended; the adeddo-oni stats used are reproduced here, alongside new material, like the stats for ...

DDAL00-04 Winter's Flame (5e) I ran this twice over the holiday season and both tables had a blast. Very flavorful, and they fell in love with the characters at the end. Would love to see something with this 'mood', but a little longer even.

How to Write Adventure Modules That Don't Suck
by James C.
Publisher: Goodman Games
Date Added: 01/16/2018 21:18:26
How to Write Adventure Modules That Don't Suck This book is a brilliant product for aspiring fantasty/sci-fi writers and GMs/DMs alike. It contains sage advice on a range of different topics within the sphere of world creation, from stroytelling techniques to the design of environmental features, monsters, villains, and beyond. The tips and tricks provided are deceptively simple and straightforward, but in many cases reflect the kind of commonsense wisdom that can only be gleaned from years of adventure writing/game-running experience. I have to give the product four stars out of five, however, because it contains a significant number of elementary typos and mistakes. One or two orthographical glitches lend a degree of character to a volume, but when a book's description indicates that the content has been authored by a plethora of legendary writers, the customer can expect it to contain nothing less than highly-polished prose. As a copy editor myself, I just can't see that there is any excuse for the number of errors that crept...

The Primal Order: Knights: Strategies in Motion
by Jon B.
Publisher: Hostile Work Environment
Date Added: 01/16/2018 17:48:41
The Primal Order: Knights: Strategies in Motion Quality of the printed edition surprised me. This is my first order of a physical product from DriveThru, so I didn't know what to expect. When I opened the box, this looks like a book that's been tucked away for 25 years. There's a few spots, particularly in the images where you can see it's not the original, but nothing that should keep you from buying the print version (unless you hate dead trees). I don't knoiw if I was expecting a spiral bound photocopy or what, but I was pleasantly surprised that it's a proper book. As for the content - TPO was something that shook up my friends' campaigns back in the 90s. This supplement might be able to be worked in with your favorite game, but works best with The Primal Order to incorporate properly scaled gods and religions into your games....

White Box : Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game
by Bryan E.
Publisher: Seattle Hill Games
Date Added: 01/16/2018 17:06:46
White Box : Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game I have both the PDF and hardcover of this book. It is the best retro-clone of OD&D out there with plenty of options to play OD&D as is or use the optional rules such as ascending armor class with ease. There is an optional thief class that is well done and, in my opinion, is much better than the original thief from the Greyhawk supplement. The hard copies are being sold at cost which makes me love this product even more. I HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone looking for a great and well organized/clearly written retro-clone or just a ruleset that is quick and easy to learn (it is a great ruleset to teach new players and they can download the PDF for free here)....

DDAL07-02 Over the Edge (5e)

Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 01/16/2018 15:09:45
DDAL07-02 Over the Edge (5e) DDAL07-02 *Over the Edge* is a set of Tier 2 (Levels 5-10) miniature adventures that provide players small glimpses in the world of Chult. These one-hour snapshots are full of opportunities for rolelay and exploration. Combat features heavily in each one and players that are not careful can find themselves easily overwhelemed in a couple encounters, especially with a creative Dungeon Master. The First adventure in series will give players a taste of combat early on and then provide them with some chances for explorationand puzzle solving. While there is nothing intricate, it provides a nice break between the initial and final encounter. The adventure also provides a couple of nice red herrings that can divert the players' attention at critical moments. The second adventure gives players a chance to see another side of common foe that is frequently featured in Season 7 content. One of the best features of this adventure is a chance for players to be the ones that do the ambushing,...

Bravia : Fantasy Setting für alle Rollenspiel-Systeme
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Drachenfeste
Date Added: 01/16/2018 14:41:20
Bravia : Fantasy Setting für alle Rollenspiel-Systeme Bravia und weitere Länder beschreibt in sehr kurzer Form ein Fantasy-Setting, wobei es auf Rassen, Länder und Organisationen eingeht. Das Layout ist schlicht, aber funktional, einzig das Inhaltsverzeichnis ist aufgrund der vielen Lücken ein wenig unübersichtlich. Die gewählten Bilder und der Schreibstil fügen sich gut in das allgemeine Flair ein. Die verschiedenen Rassen halten sich, mit bestenfalls geringfügigen Abweichungen, an die üblichen Fantasyklischees: Elfen sind abgehoben und magisch, Zwerge trinkfest und rau, Menschen vielfältig, Halblings begeisterte Gärtner, Orks kriegerisch und dominant. Vom Umfang her gehen sie dabei nicht über die Rassenbeschreibungen in typischen Fantasy-Rollenspielen hinaus. Fast alle Orte in der Welt haben einen sprechenden Namen, was mir sehr gut gefällt, da ich gleich weiß, was ich dort erwarten kann. Andererseits stehen auch hier wieder nur die üblichen Klischees: von einem Magier-Heerführer geeinte Ork-Horden bedrohen die Länder der Menschen...

Depths of the Drow As usual with Fat Dragon Games paper terrain and models, this set is excellent. I've only used a small portion of the set (3D Webs), but it will be indispensible for any future underdark scenarios that involve the drow.

While this is intended to be run in the bleak, mist-shrouded lands of Soburin, the module works in other settings as well, provided you can tweak it to include Soburin’s peculiarities – i.e. Japanese Horror with a subdued steampunk angle. It should also be noted that the pdf contains a wide variety of stats for creatures; from the Mists of Akuma CS reprinted would be the hebikontorōra, the adeddo-onis, the tikbalang and the gaki – though the latter has a na...
