[WOIN] Universal Upgrades
by Timothy S.
Publisher: EN Publishing
Date Added: 03/29/2017 23:23:21
[WOIN] Universal Upgrades This is the second time I've written a review of Universal Upgrades for W.O.I.N.'s N.E.W. Science-Fiction role-playing game. I decided to delete the original review because I said that the inclusion of a character race very similar to the Predator species from popular movies was "disappointing". That was a mistake. N.E.W. is specifically meant to be as un-specific as possible, i.e. you should be able to use N.E.W for just about any type of science-fiction-y genre you can think of, and if dealing with Predators (called the Drahzik in this), then this gives you that option. They included 11 new playable races, a huge new section devoted to androids, over 30 new exploits usable by anyone, and even more. The artwork, while sparse, is excellent, and the quality of writing and editing is first rate. It's all pure SciFi goodness. N.E.W., in my opinion has finally exceeded the high bar set by Traveller, and should be considered the new benchmark in SciFi excellence. The Universal Upgra...

The Scarecrow, Protocol Game Series 34
by Wendelyn R.
Publisher: post world games
Date Added: 03/29/2017 22:22:11
The Scarecrow, Protocol Game Series 34 Another great addition to the Protocol RPG line. This is a perfect Autumn/Halloween game or anytime you want to get creeped out. The children's roles presented were especially evocative of the sense of uncertainty and fear of rejection of being a child/teen. I appreciate the structure provided in the Protocol RPG line that fuels ideas with out being restrictive. I have run Protocol at conventions and with many players who have never tried a story game before and the system helps players form their ideas. The Drama Points are also very important to creating excitement and continued engagement of the players as the turns continue, because even if your character isn't in a scene you can still add in an idea or complication. As a final note, I played Scarecrow with several friends calling in from across the country on Roll20.net which is perfect for Protocol. We could use the standard (virtual) card deck, voice and video broadcast, and as long as one person has the scenario ha...

Lady Winter, Protocol Game Series 48
by Wendelyn R.
Publisher: post world games
Date Added: 03/29/2017 22:00:27
Lady Winter, Protocol Game Series 48 After playing/running about a dozen Protocol games Lady Winter is my stand out favorite. Each of the players just "gets it" and the depth of role play has been intense. I've been shocked by the ideas and creativity of other players both times I've played Lady Winter. The ideas seeded during setup and enhanced by the scene and location tables have exceeded expectations. This one feels profoundly personal, which is exactly what story games and role playing are all about. Masterful work, I look forward to playing again and again. ...

Delta Green: Need to Know

Publisher: Arc Dream Publishing
Date Added: 03/29/2017 19:11:25
Delta Green: Need to Know The little book has all the basic info and an introductory adventure, thats a great deal! It has a short overview of Delta Green, a How to be a Player section, How to be a Handler section, characters and character creation, and a chunk of pages on the game system and how to apply it. There's combat, damage, death, sanity, insanity, bonds and then the last section of the book is the adventure "Last Things Last". I bought the print version and the handlers screen along with the Delta Green Agents Handbook and cant wait for the Delta Green Handlers book to be out....

Trail of Cthulhu: Sisters of Sorrow
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Pelgrane Press
Date Added: 03/29/2017 11:23:29
Trail of Cthulhu: Sisters of Sorrow Dark, dank and claustrophobic adventure set on a World War 1 German U-boat with the already precarious life made even worse by Deep Ones somewhat annoyed by the turmoil underwater warfare brings - all those torpedoes and depth charges disturb them, you see. And then they find an ally aboard... The Investigators take on the roles of members of the submarine's crew, and pre-generated characters are provided. It's likely this will be a one-off adventure, so it is probably best to use them. There is some excellent historical background on German underwater warfare and the U-boat service to help you set the scene (this can be shared with players), and enough explaination for the Keeper as to what is actually going on. It will help if the whole group has a good feel for life on an early submarine, so be sure to discuss everyday details with them before and during play. The actual scenes for the adventure are well-paced and designed to bring out the claustrophic nature of life aboard an...

The Kingdom of Richard
by Jeffrey G.
Publisher: Okumarts Games
Date Added: 03/29/2017 11:06:01
The Kingdom of Richard Richly illustrated and packed with good ideas, the Kingdom of Richard is a view-from-30,000-feet of a traditional kingdom setting for an old-school fantasy campaign. All of the classic tropes are there, along with interesting twists and engaging details. The book covers a lot of ground--over 60 locations, and a couple thousand years of backstory--so it doesn't go into much depth on any single topic. Even so, there's enough there to make each town, forest, and ruin distinct from its neighbors, and to help a GM get a new campaign off the ground, whether you prefer a sandbox or story-line style of play. The Culture and Customs section offers the kind of day-to-day details that make civilization more than just a place to buy more torches and fence your loot between dungeon runs. For example, we learn why the common greeting in the Kingdom is "Better days!"; that if a member of the reclusive Keltas minority calls you a "mud whip" or a "cat baker", you should be offended; and that pretend...

Darkfast Dungeons: Dungeon Monsters Set Two
by Jeffrey G.
Publisher: Okumarts Games
Date Added: 03/29/2017 10:24:04
Darkfast Dungeons: Dungeon Monsters Set Two Even if you aren't playing Darkfast Dungeons, this is a great collection of miniatures for use with any tabletop roleplaying game. I'm especially fond of the four bugbears--plenty to give a low-level party a serious climactic battle--but all the figures are excellent. Okumarts always provides lots of bonus content, and this set is no exception. The twelve figures in the main .pdf are presented with color options in the form of layers, giving you five or six versions of each one. On top of that, there's a whole extra .pdf, with *another* 6 figures! Fantastic value, excellent quality, and great utility....

Orcs: Army Pack
by Jeffrey G.
Publisher: Trash Mob Minis
Date Added: 03/29/2017 10:11:25
Orcs: Army Pack I've grown to really love Trash Mob Minis figures. I was skeptical at first, because of the cartoony style, but once you get them on the table and see how well they "read" in play, you'll realize why the are so great. This set is one of the best values in the Trash Mob line, with 4 orcs in two colors, plus an obviously orcish skeleton and an angry boar. The orcs are included in two skin tones (green and gray), AND there are mirrored versions (flipped right to left), so you get about 20 different figures in all in this set. Even if you use plastic or metal figures for your PCs, Trash Mob's papercraft figures a great way to fill your table with hordes of good-looking bad guys at a great price. I highly recommend this and the rest of the line....

Far Horizon
by Omer J.
Publisher: Zozer Games
Date Added: 03/29/2017 09:46:40
Far Horizon Space is awesome. Rocket science is awesome. Astronauts are awesome. As children, we dreamed of traveling the stars in a space capsule or rocket ship, wearing a space-suit, visiting all sorts of weird and wonderful alien planets. For me, the most important element of science-fiction is the Sense of Wonder, that sensation you feel when you encounter strange and wondrous scenes, objects, and ideas. Science fiction allowed me to escape the boring school life to far more intriguing places in our imagination. Far Horizon scratches this very itch. Far Horizon is space exploration. Realistic space exploration - scientists in a spacecraft visiting a rogue planet passing through the outer edges of our solar system. It is 2100 AD and the characters' deep-space vehicle, the eponymous Far Horizon, undertook the first manned mission to Pluto. In 2095, astronomers detected a new planet passing through the Kuiper Belt. Strangely enough, they also found tiny shifts in the planet's trajectory - and ...

Super Kids - A Superhero Expansion for Hero Kids

Super Kids - A Superhero Expansion for Hero Kids I was very pleased to see that the Hero Kids Compatibility License gained another producer. Super Kids and its first adventure, "New Recruits" are both solid efforts. I look forward to giving it a go with my two boys and their pals soon. I agree with Scott G's review of this product completely. I too thought to myself, "what if my boys had a LIST of powers and stat dice that could be "bought" in a balanced fashion" so they could create their OWN superheroes? That would be "super" cool! Also, I might think to raise the dice pools and power levels and/or amounts of powers available to the Super Kids (hey, these kids are SUPERS and they will be doing city-smashing battle with SUPER VILLAINS). I also would've liked to have seen more "meat" in this work for the price point as it is an "expansion" into a huge new genre for Hero Kids. More info on Capital City and some Super Villains and lesser thugs (and their stats) would've been great for an easier "open the box and play" feel. I ...

Dark Obelisk 1: Berinncorte: Standard Pregenerated Characters (Pathfinder)

Dark Obelisk 1: Berinncorte: Standard Pregenerated Characters (Pathfinder) Super for what it is. PWYW for a bunch of pregen pcs is pretty neat. The quad stat thing is new--not sure if it makes sense for players unless your gm is starting you all off with bonus levels or something--but I can see how it would be hella timesaver for a gm. Here's an npc for an 8th level adventure, boom, done, all the stats are there. Really really nice having all of the feat and special abilty stuff spelt out in the descripton of each char too; saves time looking it up on my phone. This sold me on the bigger huge version Extended Pregens from the same company; that one's def not PWYW but it's HUGE and totaly worth it....

Caster Prestige Archetype: False Priest

Date Added: 03/29/2017 04:19:36
Caster Prestige Archetype: False Priest An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Caster Prestige Archetype-series clocks in at 8 pages, 1 page front cover, 1.5 pages SRD, 1 page blank, leaving us with 5.5 pages of content, so let's take a look! So, what are these? In case you are not familiar with the concept, a prestige archetype represents a way to not have to take a prestige class; after 3.X's flood, many players and GMs were justifiably tired of the concept...something that is also represented within the design of some PrCs out there. Worse in my opinion, the 3.X flood killed the "prestige"-aspect - the PrCs felt more like kits that could only be taken later, to use a 2nd edition analogue. PFRPG has partially inherited this issue - while there now are significantly more PrCs that emphasize "prestige", we still have ample of concepts that do not have to be represented by a PrC. The massive amount of excellent assassin-fixes out there would be just one example that not all PrCs should be PrCs. Enter this ...

Deadly Gardens: Stiletto Palm

Deadly Gardens: Stiletto Palm An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Deadly Gardens-series clocks in at 5 pages, 1 page front cover, 1/2 page of SRD, leaving us with 3.5 pages of content, so let's take a look! The pdf begins with two new magic items, with the first being alluring rawhide, which may be thrown up to 20 ft. - the animals closest to the item will then be compelled to chew the magic item - which is pretty cool and reasonable, perhaps even a bit highly, priced. The second magic item would be the daisy bandolier, which is pretty cool: It nets a bonus to AC via daisies attached to the bandolier; the item grows these flowers and allows you to pluck them as magical shuriken - if they have stuck long enough to the bandolier before being plucked, these shurikens are more potent. Oh, and the bandolier requires sufficient sunlight. An awesome item...however, I do think that the petal-shurikens should have a caveat that they decay and can't be sold, to avoid GP-cheesing. The pdf also cont...
