Journey Away: A non-challenge-based fantasy RPG
by Kassidy H.
Publisher: Purple Aether Games LLC
Date Added: 01/15/2019 15:53:57
Journey Away: A non-challenge-based fantasy RPG Journey Away is a very light rules sytem embedded in a pretty feel-good setting. The mechanics exist as a means to inject random chance when the players want uncertainty. This might appeal to you if you like Meguey Baker's "1,001 Nights" or Epidiah Ravachol's "Vast & Starlit." However, unlike those two, there is no structure, nor guiding questions, that might shape play or drive play towards anything. It is very loose and will depend on having players who are happy to just riff on each other and find their own fun. On the quality side, there are a few issues. There are some small typos (skewing more towards the back half of the book). The illustrations are great, but there are few of them, so it was weird to see one of them reused at the end of the book. If you are a fan of freewheeling, free-form games that rely on group creativity, give Journey Away a shot....

City of Heroes RPG Quickplay Pack
by Lily G.
Publisher: Eden Studios
Date Added: 01/15/2019 13:45:04
City of Heroes RPG Quickplay Pack The full game was never released, even in the years between this coming out and City of Heroes eventually shutting down. So this quickplay pack is all that really remains of this particular tabletop adaption. It's interesting, and tries very hard to replicate aspects of the MMO that maybe it shouldn't. A curiosity more than anything else at this point, if you played City of Heroes and were interested in how it might have gotten adapted to tabletop play, well, it's free. Check it out. Maybe even try running a session. Don't plan on it going beyond one session, though. There's lots of other, much better, and actually complete superhero games you can play....

SotM's Major Arcana optional system

Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 01/15/2019 12:02:10
SotM's Major Arcana optional system Secrets of the Masquerade presents us with a new optional ruleset that uses the Tarot's Major Arcana to influence the spheres. The rules are well done, and look like they could make a mage game more engaging. Its worth picking up a copy.

SotM's Guide to Dying
by DSC T. G. C. _.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 01/15/2019 11:27:13
SotM's Guide to Dying Secrets of the Masquerade brings us another top notch book with their Guide to Dying. A very similiar feel to their previous book, Guide to Siring, this book provides us with background story plots for new wraith characters. We could say a lot of great things about this book but we would just be repeating what other reviews have stated. The Tabletop Gaming Cyb recommends this book to all players who are planing on starting a Wraith campaign. Its a must read before creating a character.

Vacant Ritual Assembly #6
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Red Moon Medicine Show
Date Added: 01/15/2019 10:48:20
Vacant Ritual Assembly #6 An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Vacant Ritual Assembly-‘zine clocks in at 53 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of introduction/editorial/recommendations, 5 pages of advertisements, leaving us with 45 pages of content. These are laid out in approximately 6’’ by 9’’ (A5), and it should be noted that one advertisement also serves as the back cover. The other advertisements are spread throughout the ‘zine, but thankfully, none of them bisect an article – they are used as breaks between articles, which is okay, if not ideal – at least in my book. In case you’re new to the ‘zine – the default rules-system assumed within is LotFP (Lamentations of the Flame Princess), and thus, we’re looking at a comparably low PC power-level (though magic generally can have super serious repercussions). Conversion to other OSR-systems is pretty simple as far as the material within this ‘zine is concerned. So, let’s start with the material within that I can discuss without going in...

Monster Menagerie: Bulette Points

Monster Menagerie: Bulette Points An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Monster Menagerie series clocks in at 32 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 3 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 26 pages of content, so let’s take a look! All right, so first of all, the pdf acknowledges the folks that contributed in a FB-chat that gestated into this book – kudos for giving credit where credit is due! The introductory page provides a bit of optional setting-contextualization for the bulettes herein…and then we begin with what may be the most pun-tastic monster book for Pathfinder. How pun-tastic is this? Well in case you missed that the title obviously is a reference to Rogue Genius Games’ Bullet Point-series, each monster herein represents some sort of pun regarding bullet/bulette. Every. Last. One. … Yeah, who am I kidding? I love puns. Particularly bad ones. The real groaners. So let’s see what we got, shall we? We begin with a pretty harmless one – the CR 7 armor-piercing bu...

The Chronodex - Core Set https://www.teilzeithelden.de/2018/12/14/kurzcheck-chronodex-
-core-set-humorvolle-kampagnenplanung-mit-charakter/ Wer leitet, der leidet – oft unter der Masse an Informationen, die das Organisieren einer Kampagne mit sich bringt. Der Chronodex von KaiserMakes verspricht Abhilfe für geplagte Spielleiter, aber auch für Spieler und Autoren. Wie diese aussieht und mit welchen Stärken und Schwächen sie verbunden ist, wird in diesem Artikel aufgezeigt. Die richtige Vorbereitung eines Spieleabends trägt entscheidend zum erfolgreichen Spielen bei – die richtige Vorbereitung einer ganzen Kampagne noch mehr. Nicht immer jedoch ist es einfach, einen Überblick darüber zu behalten, was bisher geschehen ist – und vor allem darüber, was noch alles passieren wird. Ellenlange, romanartige Dokumentationen der Ereignisse sind eine Option, Mindmaps, Stichworte und kleine Skizzen eine andere. Der Chronodex stellt eine kreative Alternative dar: Mit diesem Tool können Spielleiter und Spieler einen Überb...

axis/ Der Weltraum. Unendliche Weiten. Dieses Regelwerk soll dazu dienen Abenteuer auf fremden Planten zu erleben, unbekannte Lebensformen und neue Zivilisation zu entdecken. Das Buch dringt dabei in Regeltiefen vor, die kaum ein Regelwerk zuvor gesehen hat. Aber lohnt es sich auch? Dieser Frage wollen wir nachgehen. Ursprünglich erschien die erste Edition von Stars without Number 2011 bei Sine Nomine Publishing und wurde schnell ein Geheimtipp in der Nische der Sci-Fi-Rollenspiele. Sechs Jahre und einige Erweiterungen später wurde in einem enorm erfolgreichen Kickstarter die Revised Edition finanziert und verlegt. Ähnlich den anderen Publikationen des Verlags, beispielsweise Godbound oder Silent Legions, legt Autor Kevin Crawford einen Fokus darauf Sandboxkampagnen nicht nur zu ermöglichen, sondern die Spielleitung explizit in der Erstellung und Durchführung ei...

DDAL00-04 Winter's Flame (5e)
by Ethan Y.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 01/14/2019 21:48:39
DDAL00-04 Winter's Flame (5e) A heart-warming adventure that can serve as an introduction to the game of D&D with the right modifications. The festival games, while a great way to showcase skill challenges, can be a little dull and repetitive without introducing some NPCs that can inspire conflict. My players were especially fond of Smoll. This adventure is a great way to get into the Midwinter spirit. For those who wish to run the adventure as an introducty one-shot, I've created some additional encounters: https://www.dmsguild.com/product/264097/Winters-Spark...

Oh, I Hate Spiders! - A 5e side trek adventure

Oh, I Hate Spiders! - A 5e side trek adventure I regularly follow Terry Herc to see what kind of adventures and items he comes up with next. I found this Humbert Drumsley Adventure to be pretty funny to play through, my players had some good laughs and the battle/puzzle of grabbing the spiders and throwing down the ward stones was tricky at times. Everyone found the challenge enjoyable and I look forward to seeing more from Humbert Drumsley.

Clanbook: Kiasyd Clanbook Kiasyd details the creation of the Kiasyd bloodline. Besides the history of the bloodlinewhich was interesting, the book included a total rework of the bloodkine discipline Mytherceria which we found creative. The discipline gets broke down into two seperate path and add rituals much like thaumaturgy. The book also adds new Thaumaturgy and Necromatic rituals, merits & flaws, backgrounds, and even a new path of enlightment. The Tabletop Gaming Club found the book a welcome addition to their library and recommend it to anyone planing on introducing a Kiasyd to their campaign....

DDIA05 Storm King's Thunder: A Great Upheaveal (5e)
by Paweł M.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 01/14/2019 16:10:06
DDIA05 Storm King's Thunder: A Great Upheaveal (5e) The adventure is a great alternative to those small modules that consume 2 hours each, and are usually played in a changing party throughout a few weeks. It gives a good understanding of what is going on in the realm, and introduces the players to the whole campaign.
