    First Aid (Cantrip)
    Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
    by John R. [Verified Purchaser]
    Date Added: 10/02/2018 16:50:51

    I was worried that this was going to basically be the same as the old cure _ wounds cantrip from 3e ... which would have really been prone to abuse in 5e (cure 600hp/hour, eliminating the need for a short rest's healing properties).

    Instead, you've kept it largely within the scope of 5e. It basically speeds up your short rest by letting you spend those hit dice during combat time... but for less effect that if you actually waited for the short rest. And you can't do it all day long (it runs out when the target is out of healing/resting HD).

    I like it!

    "you get an entire airship for a dollar" (another reviewer). No, you get everything except the airship for a dollar. What's there isn't bad (thus a 3), but what's missing is the only reason I bought the product, so, a bit disappointed.

    Thanks very much for your review. My intent was to paint the crew and ship in broad enough strokes to allow maximum DM customization while making them useful enough to drop into a campaign. The product does include relevant combat statistics, speed, and cargo capacity for the airship. the only thing I can think of that is missing is a floor plan, which I honestly didn't think to include (partially because I thought DMs may wish to personalize them, but mostly because I am personally a theatre of the mind DM and rarely use maps.) It was definitely an oversight on my part. I will look at setting up a recommended deck plan for a future update. Thank you, Travis
    Please see the latest update. A map of the ship has been included, as requested.

    The plusses: great detail, great artwork, high quality

    The minuses: they mention it being great for viewing on an iPad -- it's not. The 4 panel PDF nature makes it so that it's impossible to view as 1 large map. It would be better if they distributed 2 versions: a 4 panel PDF and a single large jpg. Also, if ever there was a product that needs a "printed" version, this is it -- why isn't there a folded or rolled map version of this?

    Yet Another Fantasy RPG

    FATE meets d20, adding FATE-isms to d20 structure. Though, it also goes a ways toward lightening the load of d20. It's a good alpha document (not even beta, in my opinion -- not due to quality, but more due to quantity). It's very bare-bones in that even the material that's covered isn't very fleshed out... and then there's all of the things that aren't covered (creatures, conversion from d20, etc.).

    A good start. I look forward to another draft in the future.

    You are right, this is an attempt to use Saga rules with FATE. Originally we were going for 3 classes and less mechanics, but got complicated somewhere in the process due to unrestrained brainstorming. As a result, some sections are half-finished. In order to fix this, we'll have to drop unnecessary rules and focus on completing the good parts. Thank you very much for your review! Best regards .

    The bundle has a few games I already own, but it also has several games I already had in my wish-list ... totalling way more than $20. So, just on the practical level, the bundle paid for itself.

    Add to that that the money spent is actually a donation to Doctors without Borders, and to be used to help efforts with the Haitian disaster relief? It's a no brainer.

    Do something good. Get a bunch of stuff I already wanted (and already planned to buy). Where's the downside?

    I do want to thank RPGnow, DriveThruRPG, and OneBookShelf for putting this all together, and thank whichever people are giving up their income from these products, to go toward the Haitian relief effort. Those are the people who did the really great thing here. This was an excellent idea on how to motivate the gaming community to make something great happen. And, judging from the way it has overwhelmed the download servers, it sounds like it was an amazing success.

    Great job!

    EABAlite v1.0
    Publisher: BTRC
    by John R. [Verified Purchaser]

    The underlying mechanics seem an AWFUL lot like WEG's d6. Only, they avoid presenting it that way, which seems sort of awkward.

    Still, after a brief read, it seems like it might be well organized and flexible. Definitely worth a free download (some things aren't).

    MADS Role Playing Game
    Publisher: Point of Insanity Game Studio
    by John R. [Verified Purchaser]
    Date Added: 12/09/2009 18:09:46

    Kind of disappointing.

    The blurb says:

    "As a character conversion system MADS is designed to convert characters from any RPG into a common system so they can adventure together"

    Yet, it doesn't actually offer any rules for converting characters/etc. from other games. Just the same generic guidelines that anyone with a basic understanding of math can glean from reading the rule books for two different game systems.

    I purchased this hoping to maybe find a "Rosetta Stone" of RPGs, based upon the blurb. Luckily, I didn't waste that much money on it, as no such Rosetta Stone is present.

    My advice to the author: Either remove that language from your advert blurb, or make free downloadable conversion guidelines for some common game systems (d20 3rd ed, d20 3.5 ed, d20 4th ed, HERO, Storyteller (the Whitewolf system), WEG's d6, FUZION, and maybe a few others ... consider the following candidates: True20, FUDGE, Fate, Basic RPG (Rune Quest, Call of Cthulhu, Elric!/Stormbringer, etc), BASH!, TriStat, Shadowrun (any edition), Traveller (non-d20), Warhammer Fantasy Role Play (esp. the later editions from FFG), etc.).

    Otherwise, I don't have much to say about the product. Once I was disappointed by the conversion rules, I didn't have a reason to read any further. The rest might be pure gold, but the only reason I had to buy the game in the first place has proven to be a total disappointment.

    I do apologize if the product doesn't meet your standards, but I would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review. Even if you find the character conversion rules not to your liking I would like to encourage you to read on as MADS does have its own character generation rules that you might find enjoyable. I don't have specific guidelines for specific systems for copyright reasons. I'm no legal expert and reading "legalese" makes my head spin. I'm just a one man show and I don't want to risk having to deal with WotC, White Wolf, or any of the other larger companies that have the resources to wage a legal battle for copyright infringement. But I will take your advice on re-writing the product's description to heart and I thank you for your input. Sincerely, Al Seeger
