Changeling: The Dreaming 20th Anniversary Edition
by Charles S.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 10/23/2017 11:29:34
Changeling: The Dreaming 20th Anniversary Edition CtD is a really good game. Its elements and themes are very powerful and flexible. This game can be a lot of really interesting things. The previoius edition was a mechanically a bit awkward compared to the other 20A books that had been released. I was really hoping for an updated game that would play friendly with the current crop of 20A books like Vampire and Werewolf. This is it. Its exactly what I needed. Nothing WoD is ever perfect, but this iteration of the game fits together very well with the other games. Its much more playable IMO. I really like the changes. Even the parts that I don't love to death are at least better than they were. Its nothing but improvements for this edition. I'm really happy with it....

DC1 Proto-Dimensions Sourcebook, Volume 1
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)

DC1 Proto-Dimensions Sourcebook, Volume 1 This book basically comes in two parts: the first part deals with the mechanics of creating and running alternate dimensions in your game and the second part provides some twelve exemplar dimensions ready for use. The Introduction explains all this and more, and notes that this is one of the harder parts of the game for the Referee to get across, seeing as the players have no experience of such a thing... a little odd as we do not have experience of quite a lot of stuff that's already cropped up in Dark Conspiracy! First up, The Meta-verse gets quite meta-physical about the whole concept, claiming that any Referee wanting to use other dimensions needs to understand this... as it happens, although I find it fascinating to read, I disagree: one of my most successful Dark Conspiracy games involved the characters travelling to an alternate dimension and trying to find their way back, all without any concept in my head or theirs about how it 'worked' - it just did! They got there because...

DDAL06-02 The Redemption of Kelvan (5e)
by Nic W.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 10/22/2017 22:23:17
DDAL06-02 The Redemption of Kelvan (5e) One of the worst adventures I have run by far for 5th edition. No variety to adventure. Too many puzzles and clues are lackluster. Characters have to fail skill checks in order to continue. Players hated it. Plot was confusing. Only good thing was the prologue.

Heroic Maps - The Lich's Lair
by Alan P.
Publisher: Heroic Maps

Heroic Maps - The Lich's Lair The level of detail that the Heroic Maps team consistently puts into their work is very impressive. I've purchased and used a number of their products in private games in the past and am extremely pleased with the map for The Lich's Lair. GREAT WORK! The chains and carved arcana are well made and not overused, while the overall "dusty" and "unused" feel of the place is piled high in exactly the right amounts.

Warbirds Jet Age Sourcebook

Warbirds Jet Age Sourcebook A definitely good supplement for Warbirds. The only wish is that there could have been more modern planes in the supplement, like the F-22 or the Su-35.

GATEWAY - The d20 Tabletop Roleplaying Game
by Jonathan H.
Publisher: Aurican 's Lair
Date Added: 10/22/2017 13:56:11
GATEWAY - The d20 Tabletop Roleplaying Game As I get older I find myself having less and less time to design, prep, and sometimes even run roleplaying games. As a result, I try to find games that are quick and easy to run, so that I can concentrate on what I think is important (such as the story and the unfolding plot) and less on the mechanics and statistics. Unless it's a game system that me and my group knows well I don't usually delve into my thick, comprehensive rulebooks that much these days. I have my favoured systems to introduce new players to the hobby, and these are pretty generic, but every now and then there's a group who wants to experience the system that dominates the RPG market; the D20 system. Or, to be specific, the D&D game. Usually I'd use the starter pack, but for those quick and easy games I've found a new and even easier system, one that emulates the D20 game and addresses some of it's key features, and yet is so stripped back that it takes no effort to set a game up. GATEWAY is an introductory g...

Nation: Lustain
by Mike W.
Publisher: John Wick Presents
Date Added: 10/22/2017 13:49:23
Nation: Lustain This is now officially my favorite Thean nation. The Eidhoren class is great for being a "traveling ambassador" to other nations. Short and sweet with quite a bit of info. My only (minor) complaint- NO MAP. I'd like to know the shape and size of the nation and where it is visually in relation to others. Maybe add one later or on a more complete Thean map elsewhere. Keep up the good work! Looking forward to what else you have in store.

Random Solo Adventure: The Cave & the Treasure
by Damian H.
Publisher: PenguinComics.com
Date Added: 10/22/2017 12:36:34
Random Solo Adventure: The Cave & the Treasure Good 15 minute diversion. I used a digital die and note. Very basic sample to demonstrate their real paid gamebooks. Good throwback to 1980s gamebooks but without the rich flavor text in this sample. Will try the other free ones. The main flaw is that grinding is required to keep earning gold to buy items, but since it has random rolls, you must keep turning right over and over again and you will eventually perish on your first run against a skeleton or trap. In other words, I probably would have made it a bit easier for a sample and not force the reader to keep going to the merchant for health, and to get three crystals from a treasure chest. Good potential for a very niche audience of solo game book players who have RPG + leveling up expectations....

Kin and Kinsmen
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Alderac Entertainment Group
Date Added: 10/22/2017 10:27:28
Kin and Kinsmen Across frozen wastes hidden away lies the Kingdom of the Seven-Day Sun, but it has worse problems than a chilly location. They found the king sitting on his throne murdered, and during the coronation of his successor, Crown Prince Hess, someone had a go at him too. Fingers of suspicion point in all directions, not least the Table of Lords (all of whom could stake a claim to the throne)... and all turn to the party, who were visiting for the winter festival and are now trapped here like everybody else, to find out what's going on. The DM's Background reveals who the murderer is and why he committed it, the adventure itself is one of investigation and interaction as the party - distrusted by just about everyone because they are outsiders - hunt for the truth. The party gets embroiled in the matter because they happen to be standing in the crowd watching the coronation beside a fellow who pulls out a crossbow and takes a pot-shot at Hess. Hopefully they tackle him - if they don't the c...

The Wreck of the Venerable Drake
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Alderac Entertainment Group
Date Added: 10/21/2017 11:29:36
The Wreck of the Venerable Drake The Players Introduction sets the scene: while browsing in an adventurers' supplies emporium, the party discovers the proprietor in a distraught state. His supply ship has been lost at sea, and worse than the loss of the cargo apparently he had what he refers to as a 'family heirloom' aboard... and he's willing to pay well to have it retrieved. When the party starts to ask about it, it turns out that the ship has run aground on a reef rather than sunk, but the crew refuse to return to it despite it not being that far away. Smell a rat? Or is the lure of the reward too great? The DM's Background explains the real story behind the wreck and the true nature of the family heirloom. Interestingly, the adventure provides a good test of the party's honesty. Brief notes cover the trip to the wreck - you'll have to fill in any details or encounters you deem necessary - then the party will have the ship to explore. There's a good plan and notes on what's where aboard. Rather oddly, the ship h...

HYPERLANES Corebook

Publisher: Scrivened, LLC

HYPERLANES Corebook This book is outstanding. It's exactly what I have been looking for in a science fiction game. The artwork is inspiring without being overbearing and the rules are well laid out. The game does not seem like a clunky reskin of the fantasy elements of D&D. It has one additional benefit that may not be immediately obvious: you can port the alien species rules into your fantasy-themed game to create interesting new character races! Well done, Scrivened. Time to start me a new campaign...
