Eden Studios Presents: Volume 1

I was generally disappointed with this book.

Bad

Firstly, I didn't want to buy articles of interviews with soft questions. There is nothing in the interviews that couldn't be found on Eden's forums.

The archetypes are a popular aspect to the game books for some players perhaps, but I find they waste space. One cannot fault this too much for this aspect though as they do provide examples . . . just too many examples.

Good

If you can't buy the Serenity game, there are (let's say it) Firefly rules in this edition that are fairly sound. With the rules of the now-released All Tomorrow's Zombies, a good sci-fi game could be ran.

The monsters for Buffy, Witchcraft, and Armageddon are cool.

This a curate's egg. The Apeworld for Terra Primate is well formed but short. It also suddenly switches from logical archetypes to a bunch of monster hunters that I suspect come from a different adventure. The Conspiracy X scenario will play fine, and the conversion notes to Unisystem go well. The teaser for Conspiracy X 2.0 is well presented and gives an idea of what a Unisystem Con X will consist of. The main meat, the SF setting, is weak and barely fleshed out. There is a lot of white space and silly monsters in this publication. It assumes a knowledge of all variants of the Unisystem, including the Buffy/Angel stuff. This is dangerous since it spoils much of the stuff for one like me who knows classic Unisystem and doesn't need to buy a new rpg to understand a magazine. It's a poor start, at 15 bucks it's ridiculously overpriced. At 10 it might be a worthwhile download.

This is another quality Eden Studios product. It has some monster for use in a Buffy/Angel game. It has interviews with the writers of Dungeons and Zombies and Conspiracy X 2.0. The best part of this book however is Spacefarers and Prairie Folk and L is for Liberty.

Spacefarers and Prairie Folk is a Firefly inspired setting for use with any Unisystem Corebook. It truely captures the feel of Firefly and the general Space Western genre. This was the main reason I purchased this book. It is not a complete setting, but just the general rules for playing in such a setting. It does have some simple rules for creating Space Ships.

L is for Liberty is a V (the old mini-series) inspired setting for Terra Primate, but as with any Unisystem product can be used with any Unisystem book. In this however instead of alien lizards they are alien intelligent apes. This also wonderfully captures the feel of what inspired it. Before I bought this book I wasn't sure what I would think of this paticular setting, but now that I have looked through it, I must say it is the most wonderfully fun sounding setting I have seen.

In the end there are a handful of archetypes of All Flesh Must Be Eaten, Witchcraft and Armageddon.

This is indeed a series of books I will continue to purchase. Another wonderful product by Eden Studios.

The first issue of Eden Studios Presents starts off the series with solid, well-written support for all their game lines. The editing and presentation are up to Eden's top-notch standards. My favorite article is "Starfarers and Prairie Folk" which brings sci-fi to the Unisystem in a big way. Any fans of the TV series Firefly should definitely check it out. There are a few previews/interviews about upcoming products but the bulk of this book is solid, game-usable content. The archetypes will come in very handy and cover a wide range of game styles. There is plenty of system-independent content if you don't happen to use the Unisystem and plenty of new crunch if you do. Highly recommended.
