Mechanisms For Tabletop Roleplaying, Set 2

Unlike the first in this series ,this product is not meta game(not knocking the first one ,loved that too) This adds a bit of complexity but has some really good ideas, my fav is the Auras that encourage group RPing, I not much for spoilers but I lill say it was very good. I could see me using any of the ideas contained, prob a bit more complexity than I'm happy with but I deff see myself adapting this and using some of it> Do your self a favor and read these two.( Aramax,tmao, Mao)

Ok I don't exactly know what I was expecting from this when I bought it but I didn't get ANYTHING like I was thinking, just sort of consists of mindless tables, I mean it IS wierd but I was expecting more.......BUT I only paid $1 for it so I give it 4 stars, it DOES deliver EXACTLY what it says it is. I am marking this one down to not reading description close enough, but then again what EXACTLY do you want for $1!!!!!

Ok I DON"T play Black Hack and took a risk and bought this hoping I could adapt it to my prefered OD&D clone and I took a good guess! Nice flavored, personalized critical hits! Very Short but suggest you pay $1.50 for quality. If you have HALF a brain you can adapt it to most D&D. Nice!

Thank you very much for your honest review Bob, I appreciate it. If you haven't grabbed the other tables, there's a few good laughs and useable situations. Our gaming group has had a lot of fun with the backgrounds table. Thanks again!

OK ,do you like OSR Rules? Conan? Lovecraft? Are you prepared for a game without Clerics? Still with me? Then boy Oh boy do I have the game for You! From D101 Games, written by Newt Newport PDF is $13 from Drive through/Hard copies available directly from D101 Games Powered by Swords and Wizardry (OD&D Clone)

You've got your standard 6 stats, with the addition of sanity and Luck

Sanity is very simple and elegant , covered by the wisdom stat

Luck is used for pretty much everything from spell saves to doing maximum damage in combat, again simple and elegant

The Game uses 4 core character classes, Barbarian, fighter,thief and sorcerers, The balance between Barbarian, Fighter and Thief is a little iffy and I think most Keepers are going to want to fiddle w/ this, but only minor fix is necessary. Prob as simple as giving the fighter a few more "specializations" (Feats) but the thief is a little tougher fixer upper.You see EVERYBODY gets backstab (A part of the basic flavor of the game) and should not be changed. I think the fighters could have used a bit more spec's to pick from but this is an INCREDIBLY easy fix. The sorcerer can cast white, grey or black magic. White and Black have different drawbacks , grey has none but is the weakest of the three, any sorcerer carrying his share of the adventuring load is going to want White(Cure spells, cleric y) and Black(fireballs n such) Very Very Very Nice!

A further bunch of character classes are closely tied to the setting provided Beast Hybrid(Lycanthropy) Disciple(monk like with white, black and grey subtypes) Elementalist ( a more standard sort of caster than the sorcerer with it's own spell kist) Lizard People Serpent Noble( classic REH Serpent man)

Character creation is rounded out with many life events charts that help with RPING but are COMPLETELY tied to core setting

A brief version of the setting is provided for players with an expanded section for Keepers

Large sections on Others(the demons of the setting and Serpent men and cool NPCs are followed by a very cool bestiary including many cool new creatures and some old favorites

The book has many many extras including a bunch of adventures(don't use canned adventures so didn't read them) The art is nice and very flavorful, didn't notice ANY typo's or grammatical mistakes

I can sum it all up with the following sentence: 50%Conan/50% HPL , all OSR D&D, Tough to use without their world(which is pretty good) Despite my problems here and there 5 out of 5 stars
