Eagle Eyes • A World of Adventure for Fate Core
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Evil Hat Productions, LLC
Date Added: 07/19/2016 14:48:48
Eagle Eyes • A World of Adventure for Fate Core Eagle Eyes is a prime example of all the wonderfully strange things you can do with the FATE rules system; take a setting (the Roman Republic), take a cinematic genre (gritty detective noir), and smash them together to create the game before you today. Eagle Eyes isn't overburdened with historical information (Wikipedia and any book store ccan give you a lifetime's worth of information on Rome), instead electing to give GMs and players just what they need to get the game rolling, then moves on to devoting the majority of its wordcount to investigative gameplay in FATE and offers a nice new subsystem for creating Conspiracies that need to be unraveled and exposed. Character creation is the usual for the system (High Concept, Trouble, and a couple neat Aspects unique to the setting), while the skill list is a rebranded take on the Approaches from FATE Accelerated, pitching them as Pleas to the Roman gods; while simple and straight-forward, I'm not in love with such a short list, but brin...

The Last Night On Earth
by Terrence H.
Publisher: Monte Cook Games
Date Added: 07/19/2016 14:31:35
The Last Night On Earth I picked up a copy of this when it first came out, but didn't get a chance to play it until this weekend. Needless to say, much like the other works by this author, Last Night On Earth proved to be loads of fun for our gaming group. This particular scenario was a bit shorter than Credemore or the Super Hero one, but it still has a lot going for it. Here are the things we enjoyed about it: * The story is solid. It really plays out like a fun movie (or even a goofier version of an episode of X-Files). You get a good intro, some wonky stuff happens and boom, you're thrown into the fray. More stuff happens and you get to solve the mystery, makes for a nice stand-alone game. * Once again, providing cyphers and partially pre-generated characters makes the start-up super simple. We had 2 new gamers to our group and it didn't take the entire session just to explain the system. * The threat is real, and the clock is ticking down, there are zombies coming out of the walls and you ...

Modern Floorplans: Streetscapes If you already own any Fabled Environments maps I highly recommend picking this product up to add it to your collection. It is not their most creative or detailed map set to date. But it likely could prove to be one of the most often used maps in the line depending on how you use them. With this set you can now just about lay out an entire FE Town.

7th Sea Core Rulebook (Second Edition)
by Charles P.
Publisher: John Wick Presents
Date Added: 07/19/2016 08:52:05
7th Sea Core Rulebook (Second Edition) I really liked this book. Quite a few good story hooks built into the various Country descriptions. The system seems really interesting for telling stories, instead of focusing on crunching mechanics. It probably won't be a great system for people focused on heavy combat or simulation junkies, but as long as people know that going in, I believe they'll enjoy the system.

Castles and Covenants

Castles and Covenants Downright false advertising. This book does NOT contain any rules for creating strongholds. Do not purchase if you want to make your own strongholds - you're better off grabbing some d20 or GURPS book on the subject.

Vathak Terrors: Horrors of Halsburg

Vathak Terrors: Horrors of Halsburg An Endzeitgeist.com review This supplement for Shadows over Vathak clocks in at 12 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC (which looks a bit sad with only 4 lines - probably would have fitted on the editorial-page), 1 page of SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 7 pages of content, so let's dive in! After a brief introduction to the matter at hand, namely monsters: We begin with the CR 1 Poxivum, which has a rather cool description: The tiny plant looks like a grotesque cross between a big onion and a human heart, scurrying around on artery-like appendages. The powerful plant seeks to attack itself to a victim, being surprisingly powerful for its size, an starts feeding off the target's Constitution, gaining regeneration while sated. Hard to kill, these creatures nauseate their victims...but on the plus-side, they are susceptible to positive energy and their stench actually repels vampires, so there's that. On a nitpicky note, one of the abilities refers ...

Mini-Dungeon #030: The Burning Tree of Coilltean Grove

Publisher: AAW Games

Mini-Dungeon #030: The Burning Tree of Coilltean Grove An Endzeitgeist.com review This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map (alas, sans player-friendly version) and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked and thus, absent from the pdf, with only deviations from the statblocks being noted for the GM. Since this product line's goal is providing short diversions, side-quest dungeons etc., I will not expect mind-shattering revelations, massive plots or particularly smart or detailed depictions, instead tackling the line for what it is. Got that? Great! This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion. ... .. . Still here? All right! While travelling inside a large forest, the PCs happen upon a sight most peculiar - Coilltean Grove. While this grove of the dryad Flùràlainn would be a most intriguing find in the dullest of times, right now, it is the place of a rarely seen phenomena: The ...

V20 Ready Made Characters
by Charles P.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 07/19/2016 07:16:24
V20 Ready Made Characters I picked up this from RPGnow and decided to give it a review. It's thirteen Neonates, one from every clan, with suggestions for using them as NPCs or player characters. Also, how they might get along. I was originally going to give this one a pass but decided since it was only five dollars for the PDF to pick it up. I was surprised to see it had a "Coterie Chart" in the pack for making these characters interact and I have to say I approve. I loved those in Chicago by Night. I also noted there were some decent adventure hooks in the back of the book but was disappointed they were generic rather than tied to specific characters. The characters all very much feel like Post-Revised which is trying a little too hard to be serious in my opinion. I generally prefer my vampires to be a little bit exaggerated in their behavior so my favorite of the 13 were the Scottish Giovanni football couch (which I will have far too much fun doing the outrageous accent of--based on my grandfather no less)...

In Darkest Warrens
by Stuart L.
Publisher: Trollish Delver Games
Date Added: 07/19/2016 04:28:33
In Darkest Warrens I love minimalist role playing systems anyway, but this one is well thought out and versatile despite only covering 1.5 A4 pages. Scott seems very aware of the aspects of RPGs that introduce complexity as he has simplified many aspects of them. Stats: There are 4 stats - brawn, nimble, mind, person. Players allocate the numbers 5+,4+,4+ and 3+ to them. Testing stats involves rolling d6 and meeting or exceeding the number. From my understanding, this means that the lowest number is better as it is more likely to roll 3+ than 5+. Classes: There are 5 classes, but only one of them uses magic (magic using classes are always the most complicated ones). They are warrior, rogue, ranger, barbarian, mage. There are 3 spells - hex, heal and hold. These spells improve as the mage increases in level. No messing about with massive spell lists and tons of stats. Your class determines your number of wounds (hit points) which are between 3 and 5. Advancement: The maximum level of the characte...
