    Date Added: 04/05/2021 13:28:45

    An exceptional and well-written guide to Call of Cthulhu mythos solo roleplaying that also extends into horror roleplaying in general. As many other reviewers ask: POD wanted!

    Storyteller's Thesaurus
    Publisher: Troll Lord Games
    by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
    Date Added: 11/16/2014 07:03:41

    By James M. Ward and Anne K. Brown, The Storyteller's Thesaurus is more a group of words for storytellers needing a trigger, an idea, a different way of describing things (eminating magic instead of firing spells). For example, under Facial Features you get everything from cheeks (apple-cheeks) to dental work (partial plate).

    A chapter on characters (this a fantasy work so Race and Species are considered equal footing), architecture & property, and a huge alphabetical index.

    Will you ever need to describe a different dwarf race with apple cheeks but a character with a partial plate as a description? Maybe so. You now have a quirky (I believe James M. Ward did the original beloved Gamma World) theme/thausari grouping that gives you a basis to not only explore further but provides words you probably never thought of.

    Recommended with Instant GM and especially The GMs Real-World Reference for really weird cross-links.

    I hope one day this will be offered in print-on-demand format.

    GMs Companion
    Publisher: Chameleon Eclectic
    by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
    Date Added: 05/06/2013 06:39:03

    Although the GM's Companion is written with a modern setting in mind, and most of the advice is toward the techno-thriller genre (and good advice it is -- the list of movies is very interesting), it can easily be used for science fiction and fantasy (the airport could be a very interesting fantasy world location with a little work). Recommended. Use with the free d6 Adventure Locations on this website.

    The GM's Real-World Reference
    Publisher: Molten Sulfur Press
    by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
    Date Added: 01/13/2013 08:08:30

    This is incredibly useful. I have often seen/heard the phrase "write what you know" and that often plays into your gaming. You use the five senses (gritty side walks, sulpher-smelling dungeon rooms, lemon-tang lamas bread) and combine names and titles and backgrounds. But when you want to go THERE, see what THAT is like, you need research. This book is incredibly helpful if you don't have the time for that amount of research. Pick a place (The Crooked Forest) and a person (Hilde Mangold, genius scientist and technician) from this book and in a page or two you have triggers, hooks, ideas. I can't wait for another one (the selection ranges all over the map and history). I wish this were in print.

    The Intervention: The Official Series Bible
    Publisher: Dancing Lights Press
    by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
    Date Added: 11/19/2012 07:33:46

    One of the Official Series Bible series. You will need the main document for this. Greek-inspired superheros plus soap-opera roleplaying. Good for "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" television-style series or can be used to rough-out a campaign using Legends Walk (available on this site) as your own TV series.

    One of the Official Series Bible series. You will need the main document for this. In this TV series you are part of a group of pulp-era adventurers. Set your dials to 1920s to 1940s, from action hero to powers-of-the-mind masked crime fighters.

    The Official Series Bible
    Publisher: Dancing Lights Press
    by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
    Date Added: 11/19/2012 07:25:02

    The Official Series Bible is really nice. If you are a fan of Now Playing (available on this site) or Primetime Adventures (elsewhere), this series is an excellent way to break out a pretend television series that allows you to set up roleplaying adventures. Even if you are not a fan of the idea of playing a character in a TV series, each Official Series Bible is good enough to inspire a campaign. The text is clear and concise. The few downsides is that the Official Series Bibles maybe a bit too short. Otherwise, these systemless write-ups are top-quality.

    10 Star Systems
    Publisher: Art of War Games
    by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
    Date Added: 11/09/2012 07:15:59

    I wasn't sure what to expect, but I know it was more than this. You get 10 Star names and their solar systems. These objects consist of a name and a type (e.g. Terrestrial, Asteroid, Rock Planet), and then some data.

    The data did nothing to trigger ideas, and that's the problem for extended play. On the other hand you can put the data together in a quick, short description such as: "The orbital period of New Kenya is X; it is largely iron/silicate, has 1.25 times Earth gravity, 10 percent water and 5 percent ice, the atmosphere is dense and corrosive and has a colony and an advanced alien artifact."

    That could be enough for a grand space-opera setting, but note that is all you get. Compare with West End Games d6 planets, or Hero games planets, or GURPS Space Atlas.

    I think I was expecting one page with descriptions, adventures, and characters rather than a few lines of data.

    Fudge On The Fly
    Publisher: Occult Moon
    by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
    Date Added: 11/05/2012 10:41:23

    Previously only available to members of the Yahoo Communities Fudgemembers. This is an excellent "create-your-character-as-you-go" design using the Fudge system. You will need to know how the Fudge levels (Terrible to Superb) and action resolution work to use this.

    Fudge Relationships
    Publisher: Darkstar Eclectic Media
    by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
    Date Added: 03/13/2012 07:59:13

    What they are: a way of describing relationships to other characters using the Fudge system (but the idea can be used in other games). What they do: provide a bonus on die rolls, or story-dependent benefits.

    Like: clear, interesting idea even if you don't think character relationships need a mechanic to encourage them (as opposed to roleplaying them).

    Dislike: Far to short (but this isn't really a dislike as I wanted more). They only provided benefits, but there is an implied opposite to this concept. Watch any soap opera to see penalties for dice rolls or Trouble for story-relationships (this idea isn't stated but it exists in my opinion). So this article could be expanded.

    Heroes of Oz: Instant Oz Quickstart Rules
    Publisher: Darkstar Eclectic Media
    by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
    Date Added: 03/13/2012 07:51:03

    Liked: Clearly laid out with only a few rought spots. Story-centered roleplaying drama encouraged thoughout and supported by the rules. It's got lots of examples, except for an adventure or two. A game with a deep love of its source.

    Dislike: Can't think of much. The few rough spots will improve. But I'm biased: I've playtested this.

    The game and the PDF has been updated, and I like to believe that all the rough spots both in the rules and the document itself have been smoothed out. I hope you enjoy it not. Also, working on more adventures. :-)
    Extreme Future Galaxy Politics Map
    Publisher: Starbright
    by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]

    I like it. It's colorful and you can tell where things are in relation to one another. I can see how you can get an idea of how far away your friends and enemies are.

    Dislikes: it's only one page. I hope the author details one or two areas of the map in the future.
