Blood and Bone
Publisher: Arcana Games
by Christopher R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/26/2017 08:35:09

I just read through Blood and Bone and thought I would give my first impressions

Pros:

  • The book is small, easily read, and beautifully illustrated. The tone and graphic design are perfectly matched.
  • The setting is very interesting and there are some really smart and unique mechanics such as armor and apothecary.
  • The character creation mechanics are solid and varied.
  • There are some nice variant mechanics that offer new ways to play the game.

Cons:

  • The editing and proofreading are pretty bad. There are numerous typos, editing inconsitincies, and mismatched page numbers. Lists (like Traits) are not alphabetized.
  • Character progression is pretty limited and Traits take up the bulk of character progression and makes it feel a little bland.
  • The skills selection is very meager, with Strength only having one skill (and it's shared with Dexterity). The Savage Worlds-esque step dice also don't win me over.
  • Alacrity is a horrible name for initiative.
  • The NPC examples are not actually text but images, at a terrible quality, and it makes them unsearchable. They also have a "CMW" stat I couldn't find explained anywhere in the book.
  • The game is explained as having no magic, but there is the Blooded ability which functions like a school of magic. There is no explanation of how it's different from magic.

Super Secret Spy Agency
Publisher: FeralGamersInc
by Christopher R. [Verified Purchaser]

This game is so bad, it would be the best MST3K review of all time. The front cover is sample art from a website with the watermark ineptly airbrushed over, there are major typos in the graphics ("confidencial"), the formatting is all over the place with bold being used in some cases but not others, spelling and grammar mistakes abound, I still have no idea how the mechanics work, and the interior art is again free samples sized way bigger than the graphics can handle and are a pixelated nightmare. That said, this book is a perfect example of what not to do, and should be downloaded and read to be believed.
