Scavenge the Sands
Publisher: ThrowiGames
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/30/2018 10:47:37

Pages: 27 and a bit pages are the content.

Scavenge the Sands is a post apocalyptic adventure for 3-5 starting adventurers; and can be used for Throwigames SRS system and 5th Ed. But, this adventure could also be adapted for other post apocalyptic RPGs/themes (Mutant Future, Mutant Epoch to name a few).

There is a table of contents, above which is a shopping plaza map (Monkey Blood Design-cartography). Artwork (quite good): Cover: Brian Thomas. Interior: Lucas Pandolfelli.

P2 gives a chart/list of wandering foes on a d6 roll. GMs could expand this list (d8, d10, d12, etc), to include a multitude of foes.

P4 details the map locations, and the Noise Attracts Foes chart (1d6). Once again, this can be expanded by GMs, similar to the Wandering Foes chart

P9 has a chart of finds in an office building (2d6). Once again, this chart can be expanded by GMs.

P14 gives a chart of mutant number and location (can be altered by GM).

P17 gives the conclusions, appendix (GM helpful hints). P18: New foes.

All maps throughout the PDF have numbers related to numbered paragraphs detailing what the players find in each of those areas.

P19 talks about treasure, Earth Credit badge, and experience (XP).

Includes a journal (7 and a bit pages), at the end of the PDF. Pretty good as a 'prop' to read to the players when they find it.

Cost: £1.18/$1.50. Worth the cost.

2259 Earth!
Publisher: ThrowiGames
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/30/2018 10:09:24

EA1 (TG6051): 28 pages are the content of this sci-fi setting. A mixture of distopian, moderate post apocalyptic), some cyberpunk. No countries or governments, just corporations owning everything.

The setting gives 3 classes of people: corporation employed, unemployed, and self employed (often illegally). A timeline, money, possessions, challenges, professions are listed. Plots are also included (p29-30).

Artwork: by Maciej Zagorski (Forge Studios), quite good.

P20-28: Corporations. Quite a list (some tongue in cheek). Is for the SRS sci-fi variant, but can be adapted for other RPG systems.

Cost: £1.18/$1.50

Worth a look at for the price.

d66 Adventure
Publisher: New Realms Publishing
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/22/2018 15:00:25

At 17 pages, 16 are the conent. Artwork: the same as other products from NRP (black & white).

Your character has 5 stats (abilities): Might (Str), Mind (Int), Move (Speed), Body (Con), Spirit (a mixture of charisma, wisdom and spiritual strength). A number of D6's are assigned to each of the above depending on 'Kin' as they call it (species/race), which are Dwarf, Elf, Human, Halfling. Humans have 4 on each stat. The total of each roll is put on each stat.

Combat: Melee attack is a Might check (45+Move). A ranged attack is a Move check (45+Move+size mod). P12 mentions preparing cards (encounter cards, etc) I expect for each location.

Damage: The weapon's damage dice, and add the attacker's Might/5. Subtract the defender's Body/5 and armour. The result, if positive, is recorded as a wound.

No character sheet. No bestiary = Not good. 2 supplements (advanced adventurers fighter and dwarf), are £1.45/$1.95 each.

The game does appear to be miniatures/map based.

At £4.55 (£1.53)/$5.95 ($2.00), sale in brackets; it's partly ok.

Exiled in Eris
Publisher: Precis Intermedia
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/29/2018 13:47:48

This PDF is 173 pages (169 are the content). Artwork is ok, b&w. Exiled in Eris is Sword, sorcery and blaster fantasy. P15-24: Your character concept, involves: where you came from, Family background and Profession, and why are you in Eris. Artifact hunters are the general profession. Certain weapons and armour are restricted (only available to military and Noble houses). Exiled in Eris uses a D20 for tasks; other dice are used (d4, d6, d8, d10, d12). Races: Human, Cyberdroid, Dakazi, Deru, Drudge/Brux. Myrmidon/Orix, Savant/Ix. Attributes are: Strength, Stamina, Dexterity, Agility, Intellect, Wits, Charisma, Willpower. There are 16 skills, and 6 restricted skills.

Exiled in Eris does remind me a little of Mekton (first edition).. At £5.25/$6.95, it's worth a look.

City in the Mirage (for Exiled in Eris)
Publisher: Precis Intermedia
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/29/2018 13:43:25

This PDF is 42 pages, 40 are the content. Your party guide the scholar to some 'ruins'. Some encounters, a puzzle, etc. Not too bad. There are portraits of the NPCs; also Maps (some are quite small, need enlarging). Artwork is OK. Like the rulebook, this PDF gives me the 'Mekton' feel', in style, look, etc. Not bad for $5.00/£3.18. Worth a look.

WHITE BOX ZOMBIES - A source book for SWORDS & WIZARDRY and all OSR games
Publisher: Bloat Games
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/07/2018 16:18:29

48 pages, 38 are the content. The 'variety' of different zombies are similar to Survive This! Demihuman zombies (P20-41): quite good.

ArtworK: from Survive this! But still looks good. Good piece on P4.

P18 (P19 PDF) errors?: 1: Truth is though, they are a lot of zombified children (should that be there are?). 2: It's up to your referee to decide if and when you run across. (Incomplete sentence?). Should that be 'when you run across them/zombie children?

Nice variant OSR rules for zombie 'apocalypse' setting.

For £0.96 (sale), £1.44; $1.34 (sale), $2.00: worth getting.

ZWEIHÄNDER Grim and Perilous RPG - Core Book
Publisher: Grim & Perilous Studios
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/08/2017 07:42:35

A massive 692 paged (689 are the content). Pages 689-691 are blank note pages. I found a few typos (don't know if there's anymore): P268: Damage Condition Track: As character(s) carry their wounds over P342: until well after you would (have) concocted it P599: Crypt Skeleton: They (there) are also rumours

Stats/attributes are: Combat Bonus (CB), Brawn Bonus (BB), Agility Bonus (AB), Perception Bonus (PB), Intelligence Bonus (IB), Willpower Bonus (WB), Fellowship Bonus (FB).

Zweihander is a percentage based RPG.

Artwork: Good. Does remind me of WFRP 1st Ed artwork.

Action Points for combat (3AP per character).

There is a damage coondition track to show the players 'health dondition'. Healing: Elixir of Benefice: You positively move 3 steps up the damage condition track positively, but suffer 3 corruption. There's no easy magical healing in this game. Getting wounded is real bad.

Unlike other RPGs, your players are not powerful heroes, but normal townsfolk who have decided to take the risk of adventuring outside the safety of the walls to venture outside into the wilderness to hopefully return richer.

As a WFRP RPG clone, it's good. If you like a grim/dark RPG, it's worth the purchase (especially since it's on sale at the moment).

5e x 5 Combat & Conditions
Publisher: Ken Wickham
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/11/2017 08:08:49

Out of 43 pages, 36 are the content. Page 5 is worth reading, as it gives you the 'first step into the ideas, etc, the 2 authors used to convert 5th edition (d20), into d100. P7 and 8 are the contents page, listing order of combat, movement, attacking, damage and healing, traps, conditions, diseases. Some pages can appear quite 'empty', as they only contain 2-5 lines.

For £0.76/$1.00, it's quite informative as a conversion.

We hunt bugs
Publisher: Orcs Unlimited
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/13/2017 13:44:53

The PDF runs at 122 pages. Out of that, approximately 109 are the content.

The contents list is on page 7 (quite a few pages down). Your character (PC) creation, which starts on P17, not 15; has 3 abilities (Mental. Physical, Social). These vary depending on your class (Agent, Engineer, Grunt, Hunter), which also gives you skills, other, special skills, specialities, and perk. Perk: you get from being with a certain company (listed in the book). They also give you abilites, skills, and other, to add what you already have from your class.

The game rules are on Page 69 (not 67); page 69 tells you that you need D6's (so it's a D6 system). It's only 6's that count as successes. For example: melee combat: If you had a Physical of 3, and a Melee Combat of 3, you'd roll 6D6

No character sheet! I couldn't find it in the PDF.

Artwork: black & white, looks OK. I hope this is helpful.

Thank you for the in depth review. After reading your review I found that the file that had been uploaded was an old working final and not meant to be the final. the proper file has been uploaded containing a character sheet and pages numbered properly. I hope you will try the game with the proper content and enjoy it.
Into the Darkness: Map 3
Publisher: Crooked Staff Publishing
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/10/2017 06:30:40

A well detailed dungeon/prison map. Complete with torture chair and rack (also complete with blood stains). The colour and level of detail is very good (flagstones, furniture, straw on the floor, etc).

Printer-friendly version as well. Very good for the price. A definite perchase.
