BF1 Tower of Skulls (SnW)
by Jeremy Z.
Publisher: Cut to the Chase Games
Date Added: 04/24/2016 04:27:08
BF1 Tower of Skulls (SnW) This is a pretty good dungeon crawl, with a lot of rooms (a little more than 50) most of which are quite detailed. Combat, traps, exploration, riddles, good mix. But it suffers from being a somewhat poor conversion from 5e or Pathfinder, I guess. Firstly, some of the monsters are not described. You just get stat blocks at the end, no details about what they look like or what they are. Most notably, what the heck is a Gwiddon? Secondly, old school games rely on treasure for character advancement. There is almost no treasure in the module. A fair amount of weak magic items, a couple of gems and pieces of jewelry (dog collars) and no monetary treasure. Lastly, supposedly the module takes place in a single night, but has over 20 combat enounters. The module gives places where characters may take a "short rest", which I guess ia a 5e thing. Most old school games don't have that, healing can take a while, even with magic. None of these are major issues (except the lack of monster...

Qin: The Tournament of Scarlet and White
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.
Date Added: 04/24/2016 04:04:51
Qin: The Tournament of Scarlet and White The *Tournament of Scarlet and White* is a short scenario that can be run as a one-off or in a convention slot, or as a diversion during a regular campaign. It covers events in a township where, years ago, the provincial governor was overthrown and replaced by the leader of a band of mercenaries. As he's done a good job since, the powers that be have left him alone. Every year the new governor, one Qi Xiang, holds a tournament that is open to all comers, and this year the party has decided to give it a go... An Introduction sets the scene, covering recent history and outlining Qi Xiang's further ambitions, for of course a minor governorship will not satisfy him for ever. It also introduces some leading members of his mercenary band, deliberately unstatted as this adventure is for low level characters and they are supposed to be far too powerful for them to even consider challenging... my group is not that wise, so I made sure that I had a rough idea of their capabilities before runn...

Darkfast Classic Fantasy Bonus Set One: Fae is Fowl

Darkfast Classic Fantasy Bonus Set One: Fae is Fowl These figures are up to Okum's usual high standards, though anthropomorphic animals are not really to my taste, at least for standard fantasy role-playing. The fairies are more useful to me; they are full-size (in scale, at least), and since the wings are an optional add-on feature, you can use them as elves if you like. And you literally can't beat the price.

Hyperspace Messenger Compendium
by Nickolas H.
Publisher: DwD Studios
Date Added: 04/23/2016 13:46:35
Hyperspace Messenger Compendium I love this supplement for everything it brings to my White Star game. Aliens is one of my all time favorite tools and I much prefer the d20 skill system presented in Hyperspace Messenger over the d6 skill system introduced in the White Star Companion. Stunners, Robots, Vehicles, and Cyberwear all bring a bunch of useful goodies and systems to use as you desire and I'll be bringing some of these things into my games to keep my players on their toes. Finally, the last chapter is a handy addition for quickly designing sectors of space. My only complaint is the main font used for most of the text. It appears slightly faded. That being said, it is still highly readable and the rest of the art and graphic are very nice looking....

Qin: The Art of War
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.
Date Added: 04/23/2016 12:01:57
Qin: The Art of War There's a lot of warfare going on in this game, it isn't called Qin: The Warring States for nothing! As the seven states squabble there is plenty of opportunity - perhaps the party wish to become mercenaries or they may see their attempts at diplomacy (or spying) fail, they may become involved in a border skirmish or a siege... whether it's a small scuffle or all-out war, this is a good time and place to display your martial prowess. This supplement gives you all the tools you need, from comprehensive descriptions of the forces maintained by each state to rules for fighting out any scale of brawl right up to epic battles, and several scenarios and ready-to-play characters to thrust your party headlong into the action. Or you may wish to play out battles to form a backdrop to the characters' exploits... First up is The Armies of the Zhongguo. Drawing on the work of the real-world Chinese strategist Sun Tzu, here called Sun Zi, there is a discussion of how - and why - war is waged in ...

The Fate Codex - Volume 1, Issue 2
by Oliver O.
Publisher: Magpie Games
Date Added: 04/23/2016 10:12:40
The Fate Codex - Volume 1, Issue 2 This publication is an awesome way to explore the flexibility of the FATE system, and find sources of inspiration for any sort of game you want to run. The quick start adventure in particular was appealing, not only for use as is, but as a model for how you can prep an entire campaign with a minimum of work and a maximum of flexibility to allow for improv at the table top. The alternate rules section also gets into how you can swap the "notice" skill for a "survival" skill, which is perfect for gritty settings - but this section also offers some insight into how the game design developers see skills in FATE. This is fascinating for anyone interested in design, or the workings behind a great RPG....

Exalted 3rd Edition
by Paul S.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 04/23/2016 10:10:11
Exalted 3rd Edition Speaking as a backer of the Kickstarter, I find this edition of Exalted to be incredibly disappointing. I was a huge Exalted fanboy and I wanted very much for this to be a good game that my group could enjoy. When I got my backer copy of the rules, I spent a month pouring though the rulebook try to make sense of it. The book is full of complex and counter-intuitive subsystems, and I really had to study to figure them out. I was worried, but I still had some hope that things would work better when we actually started to play. My first session of EX3 was a complete disaster. I have *never* had the first session of a game go this badly. My players instantly hated the game, and we couldn't even finish the first combat. Don't get me wrong. There are parts of the system that are quite brilliant. The social conflict system in particular may be the best I've ever seen. But there are other parts of the rules that, while they may be mechanically sound, just make no sense. The combat mov...

Dungeon Crawl Classics #84.3: Sky Masters of the Purple Planet
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Goodman Games
Date Added: 04/23/2016 08:49:34
Dungeon Crawl Classics #84.3: Sky Masters of the Purple Planet The Purple Planet box set was probably the best RPG purchase I made last year. It is exactly what it claims to be, a fantastic, exotic, lengthy adventure that you can easily base an entire campaign around. If it looks interesting to you, then I'm fairly confident you won't be disappointed. It has all the weirdness, wonder and swords and sorcery action you've likely come to expect from DCC products. Goodman Games has released three modules to date in further support of the setting, and this is my favorite. The party is immediately dropped into the action when a band of airship pirates ambush them with exotic weaponry. This leads the party to chase the survivors to their base, a sprawling affair which will require a great deal of cunning and resourcefulness on the party's part to overcome. Will they boldly storm the place (not recommended!), sneak in, use subterfuge or possibly even start a slave revolt? All of this and more is possible. Furthermore, although the adventure is short...

Fantasy Furniture Tokens Nice quality and detail with the tokens and works beautifully with Fantasy Grounds. I would love to see this developer create more dungeon dressing tokens, (i.e. altars, fountains, bone piles, etc.), because I would definitely buy them.

Part-Time Gods of Fate Von heute auf morgen zum Gott erwählt: Wie schaffen es die Charaktere, die neugewonnene göttliche Macht und Verantwortung mit ihrer 60-Stunden-Arbeitswoche und ihren familiären Verpflichtungen in Einklang zu bringen? Part-Time Gods of Fate macht das gleichnamige d20-System mit Fate Core-Regeln spielbar.

Alchemist (5E)
by Andrew P.
Publisher: Tribality Publishing
Date Added: 04/23/2016 00:13:39
Alchemist (5E) Another great product from Rich Howard and Tribality. Interesting new caster class that feels familiar yet distinct from the other offerings in the PHB. Theres a lot of variety in the type of alchemist you can be, with 7 unique archetypes including Artificer (skilled tinker), Herbwarden (apothecary/healer with a bit of plant affinity) , Irezumi (using ink and tattoos for magic), Metamorph (changing and enhancing the body), Poisoner (pretty self explantory), Pyromancer ( specializing in fireworks, explosives, etc), and Re-Animator (because everyone wants to be Frankenstein). Each subclass brings its own flavor and feeling to the class, granting interesting abilities and leading to interesting story opportunities. Rich does an especially great job of littering the text with helpful tips and suggestions to customize the various aspects of being an Alchemist to create a richer character, story, and gaming experience. And as with all of Tribality's offerings, the layout and design of thi...
