100 Oddities for a Viking Encounter
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
by Tom H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/12/2017 18:53:24

Anotherr great supplement and addition to the 100 Oddities series by Skirmisher. I really loved a lot of the content in this entry, being quite taken with Viking mythology. There are suggestions for themed encounters which can be cherry picked or randomly rolled using the d100 mechanic. There are also good suggestions for flavour which can be worked into any ongoing fantasy campaign/adventure with a little tweaking depending on rules system prefernces. A lot of the offerings are really good idea generators; I especially love the crone's pie warming on a window sill.

As with all of the 100 Oddities series, you are getting a lot of good material in a very compact and reasonably priced product. Well done Skirmisher :) Keep them coming.

100 Oddities for a Treasure Hoard
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
by Tom H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/13/2017 20:26:06

Another great entry in the 100 Oddities series. The ever sought after treasure hoard and loot is too often treated as a casual tally or inventory list that is handed out after a challenge is completed or a monster defeated. This GM supplement turns a treasure room into a series of potential plot hooks, dangers or just "odd" gems to entertain and engage players. Counting coins and valuables was never quite so strange... Recommended along with all the other Oddities supplements.

Player's Guide to the Aegean (BASH Fantasy)
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
by Tom H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/26/2017 17:38:08

A very well written handbook that provides a wealth of detail and background for creating interesting characters for the Kos setting using the BASH Fantasy system. I liked the obvious effort put into creating a historical fantasy flavour for players while still working in several of the standard and well-loved fantasy races (orcs and elves for example). It also presents players with some different races that I thought were cool options. The Cynocephalians for example; who wouldn't want to play a sword wielding, jackal-headed warrior? The Arachnaean and Centaurian races round this out with two other options to create some further diversity amongst PCs. There is effort made to give each of these races a back story as opposed to just making them a block of stats. I really liked how everything has a very ancient feel flavoured by Greek mythology, which ties directly to the equally well written and developed Swords of Kos campaign setting (check it out). Although this is called a player's handbook, there is a lot of rich stuff here for the GM as well. The races and information in the book give GMs ready made social and historical material with which to populate and add depth to their campaign. Even if the races aren't chosen by players, they could easily be used to present interesting encounters and adventure hooks. Extremely fairly priced, this is a real bargain. Hats off to the boys and girls at Skirmisher for another quality product.

100 Oddities for a Wizard's Library
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
by Tom H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/25/2017 20:39:53

All of the "Oddities" offerings from Skirmisher are awesome. They give GM's great ideas for random strangeness, intrigue and adventure that can be injected into a game campaign/setting. With some tweaking the oddities could even be adapted to an array of RPG settings. Great for plot and adventure hooks as well. Highly recommended.

100 Oddities for a Wizard's Tower
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
by Tom H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/06/2016 21:36:38

Another win by the lads at Skirmisher. This is the second "100 Oddities" supplement I have had the pleasure of looking through. I loved their "100 Oddities for a Graveyard" entry and the Wizard's Tower is no less detailed and useful for GMs. With this book you don't just get the 100 entries for strange things and situations the players may stumble on. You also get additional d20 and d12 tables to help you build the structure, flavour and feel of the Tower. This could be used to help create a careful, pre-planned adventure or used on the fly as a type of "tower randomizer".

The entries on all of the tables included in this book are colourful and have enough detail for plenty of adventure hooks or just cool random bits that can add to any scenario. Some entries are darkly humorous, others frightening and some just plain weird or disturbing. Perfect!

Check all of these GMing gems by Skirmisher out, they are well worth it and very reasonably priced.

100 Oddities for a Graveyard
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
by Tom H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/09/2015 19:04:49

The 100 Oddities series by Skirmisher are a great resource for GMs. Having looked through the "100 Oddities for a Graveyard" I was really impressed with the concept and the content. Being new to sitting in the Games Master chair, resources like this are a real treat. When you are trying to just stay on track with telling a compelling story for players and master a rules system at the same time, well written supplements that do some of the heavy lifting in the area of adventure hooks, impromptu situations and spontaneity are always welcome. The 100 Oddities series does not disappoint. The fact they are not tied to a specific set of rules make them easily adapted to any material you may be working with. Taken as an inspirational source they can give you some cool ideas to build full scenarios from, and with 100 entries for each of these gems, you won't run short any time soon. For GMs who are a little more comfortable with improv, a roll on a d100 gives you a random situation which could add some flavour and unexpected results. These also aren't restricted to the setting they are named for. with a few small changes, a graveyard becomes a post apocalyptic ruin, etc. Another good product from these folks. Recommended, five stars.

The Mythos Society Guide to New England
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
by Tom H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/06/2014 23:36:54

I have been a fan of Lovecraft for a long time and this book provides a wealth of well researched knowledge for both gamers and non-gamers alike. The ties to Lovecraft and the Mythos aside, this book stands on its own merit as a reference for the interesting interesting and atmospheric settings of New England. Mr. Staples attention to detail and feel for the genre are apparent even at first glance. Well written and engaging source material like this is hard to find and even harder yet for a genre like horror. A good investment at an extremely reasonable price. Highly recommended.
