Character - Elf Rogue - RPG Stock Art
by Jeremy R.
Publisher: Dean Spencer Art
Date Added: 06/25/2017 02:27:05
Character - Elf Rogue - RPG Stock Art The image is great and it's delivered in a .png not a jpg or even PDF as some stock art providers do. About the only downside about the image itself is that she only seems to have two toes on her feet, large ones at that. While it's only noticeable when you zoom in, it's kinda weird looking. The catch is the license which is rather restrictive, You can use the image once. While that might okay for larger publishers, for a lot of small publishers and hobbyists like me (which are basically the people buying stock art and not commisioning original artwork), you're likely not going to be making the cost of stock art back from just one product Realistically it's my fault for not reading the publisher preview, but at the same time, I'm not sure why this was hidden in the preview and not written on the product page itself. In fact, it would be really nice if OBS categorized stock art (or art in general) to let the buyer know details of the license as easily as the game system for RPG p...

Campaign System - Hero Kids Compatible
by James H.
Publisher: Nailthorn Studios
Date Added: 06/24/2017 22:34:48
Campaign System - Hero Kids Compatible I would say the information is good in this expansion. My only complaint is the formatting. It is 40 pages of with background that causes your computer to print color or grayscale into the background of each page. Also the fact that several of the pages are only a few paragraphs that finish explaining each character class and it can get annoying sitting through the printing.

vs. Ghosts Adventure: The Witch of New Hope
by James E.
Publisher: Fat Goblin Games
Date Added: 06/24/2017 22:01:20
vs. Ghosts Adventure: The Witch of New Hope Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the PDF version of this product for the purpose of this review. This is a full-color, eleven-page PDF with eight pages of adventure content. Two pages of this cover the introduction and background of the game, and another page discusses ways of involving characters in the plot. The adventure itself covers four acts (scenes, really), although as per usual for vsM adventures, these are mainly outlines and the person running the game is given the task of actually creating dialogue and such. There's some flexibility in the scenes depending on what the players end up doing, and it's best to keep that in mind when writing stuff out yourself. Either way, though, this is a pretty solid adventure for any group that enjoys vs Ghosts, and the price is pretty good for the amount of content provided....

vs. Ghosts Adventure: The Lights of Sand Island

vs. Ghosts Adventure: The Lights of  Sand Island Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the PDF version of this product for the purpose of this review. This is a full-color, eleven-page product, with eight pages of actual game content. The Lights of Sand Island is a bit more mystery-like than some of the adventures that get published for this system, with the players urged to figure out what kind of force is causing ships to constantly run aground in the same place. The adventure itself takes place over four short acts (each 1-2 pages long), and no maps are provided. You may want to draw your own for this if your group prefers those to mapless play. Overall, this is a fairly solid release for the system, and it's long enough to be good for at least part of a gaming session....

vs. Ghosts Adventure: A Christmas Carol
by James E.
Publisher: Fat Goblin Games

vs. Ghosts Adventure: A Christmas Carol Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the PDF version of this product for the purpose of this review. This is a full-color, two-page product, with one page of OGL and general legal stuff, and the other comprising a one-page adventure. Honestly, this is more of an outline than a true adventure, briefly describing scenes and what's going on but leaving it for the game master to come up with specific dialogue, any maps that the group may be necessary, and so on. I wouldn't run this adventure straight from the page, but rather, use it as the framework and write the rest of it out myself. My overall feelings on this product are a bit complex. For pre-published adventures, even in generally rules-light games like this one, I prefer things that are as complete as possible. This product is honestly more of an adventure idea than a full adventure in its own right - although it's also priced low, so it's not like you're forking over a ton of money for something less bulky than you expected...

Creature Card Catalogue: Canny Constructs

Creature Card Catalogue: Canny Constructs Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the PDF version of this product for the purpose of this review. This review does not cover any physical cards. This is a full-color, eight-page product - although, like Brutal Beasts, four of the pages appear to be identical copies of the OGL as front/back sides for the cards. The monsters included here are the Arc Hound (Challenge 3), Gallows Golem (Challenge 8), Pelt Amalgam (Challenge 5), and Steel Stallion (Challenge 2). Each creature comes with its full statistics, an image, and a general description of what the creature is and how it behaves, essentially making this product a mini-bestiary of themed creatures. My feelings here are essentially the same as for Brutal Beasts - four extra creatures on a given theme isn't bad, especially at a price and format that makes them easy to organize if you get physical copies (either as cards or by printing them), but the redundant copies of the OGL make this product slower to navigate than it re...

Creature Card Catalogue: Brutal Beasts

Creature Card Catalogue: Brutal Beasts Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the PDF version of this product for the purpose of this review. This review does not cover any physical cards. This is a full-color, eight-page product - although four of the pages appear to be identical copies of the OGL, one for each of the four creatures contained here. If I understand this right, these are meant to be front-and-back sides (which would make sense for an individual physical product, legally speaking), but it's still slightly jarring to see in PDF format. The monsters included here are the Apex Ram (Challenge 6), Ridgeback Stalker (Challenge 2), Skullcracker Wolf (Challenge 3), and Tundra Savager (Challenge 8). Each creature comes with its full statistics, an image, and a general description of what the creature is and how it behaves, essentially making this product a mini-bestiary of themed creatures. Overall, I'd rate this a 4/5 - I really don't think it needs three extra copies of the OGL, and even if those are meant t...

INDEX CARD RPG Vol. 1
by Kevin W.
Publisher: RUNEHAMMER GAMES
Date Added: 06/24/2017 16:45:56
INDEX CARD RPG Vol. 1 These are so great; they bring the great artwork of the ICRPG core book to your tabletop very nicely (or just add some great general artwork for use with any game system). My oldest son and I had a great time just making a dungeon "draw deck" and pulling cards until a story started to come together. I love that the dimensions/margins are set just right so that you only need to cut across two lines (technically three cuts: one cut in half, then two cuts into quarters) without having to "trim" around like so many print-and-play items out there. For an extra polished look (and durability + waterproof-ness) get an inexpensive thermal laminator and 25 (or 50 in case you need spares) 8.5x11" pouches on Amazon. Cut into quarters, put 4 into each pouch with about a 1/8" margin around each card, laminate, then cut into quarters again. They come out beautifully! ...

INDEX CARD RPG Vol. 3 They're back! This time with some great sci-fi themed cards, useable in the Warp Shell setting of ICRPG Core or any space/sci-fi themed game. I love that the dimensions/margins are set just right so that you only need to cut across two lines (technically three cuts: one cut in half, then two cuts into quarters) without having to "trim" around like so many print-and-play items out there.

INDEX CARD RPG Core Set

Publisher: RUNEHAMMER GAMES
Date Added: 06/24/2017 16:27:33
INDEX CARD RPG Core Set I walked into this strictly based on DTRPG "top seller" status and stellar reviews. I am so glad I did. Feels like a great blend of Dungeon World and D&D 5th Edition. Also the "Dungeon Mastery" section contains some great general advice and ideas that you can incorporate into any game. Highly recommedn you check out the author's YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCh5vto8JFstb9Sma9zV25g) and the ICGP Google+ group (https://plus.google.com/communities/113794869422304907451) if you're thinking about it or if you purchase and want to get some more ideas/resources....

In Darkest Warrens: Magnificent Artefacts This is a useful supplement for a very easy to use, low-power game which I like working with. The artefacts are also low-power, which fits the structure of the game, and many of them are of practical use.

The Last Defender
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Alderac Entertainment Group
Date Added: 06/24/2017 11:08:44
The Last Defender It's spring time, and the local rangers have announced that the mountain passes are clear enough for travel once more... so the party heads off there for whatever reason (a couple are given in the DM Background if you or they do not have a good reason of their own). In the heights of the mountains, there's a chasm crossed by a bridge guarded by a tower at either end. There's quite a lot of backstory for the DM about what's gone on there in the past, and this is where the adventure proper begins - you probably will wish to play out the party deciding (or being hired) to travel through the mountains, getting any equipment that they need and getting high up in the mountains, but you're on your own for that. There's a good (but not player-friendly) map of the bridge over the chasm, again any maps you require to get there will have to come from elsewhere. On the plus side, there's plenty to explore when you get there - and assorted bandits, monsters and others to object to the party's pr...
