Silver Cool 3 Page Background
by Kai P.
Publisher: The Knotty-Works
Date Added: 07/15/2017 02:31:36
Silver Cool 3 Page Background The title looks a bit plain to me, but this might only be me (I would have suggested a different color for the details on the corner spaces, as I think that silver on light blue looks a bit sallow). Never the less, the background fills a niche: if you need something that is linked to both “future / scifi / technology” and “cold / ice”, you should not look further but pick this one up. It is clear-cut, fits the aforementioned themes perfectly and offers a fine touch to your release while still providing more than enough writing space. The price and license condition is more than fair and a true treat for those who just begin to release their own material. ...

Black & White 1 Page Background
by Kai P.
Publisher: The Knotty-Works
Date Added: 07/15/2017 02:26:23
Black & White 1 Page Background A good b/w page background for SciFi titles that are meant to be printer friendly. I used it in both commercial products and free hobby/community releases by now (a bit of background turns a good text into an appreciated PDF) and did not regret the purchase, nor do I see myself doing so in the future. The price and license condition is more than fair and a true treat for those who just begin to release their own material.

Rituals 1 Page Background
by Kai P.
Publisher: The Knotty-Works
Date Added: 07/15/2017 02:23:21
Rituals 1 Page Background A wonderful page-background for releases centered on magic and/or summoning. The details in the text space a wonderful, as are those near the corners and the picture arrangement in general. I will not use it for ALL of my products (as it has a rather strong “them” that does not lend itself to each and any fantasy title), but when I am going to write further “dark spellbooks”, it will be more than handy (as I found out already with a release of mine). The price and license condition is more than fair and a true treat for those who just begin to release their own material. ...

Coppery Coolness 2 Page Background
by Kai P.
Publisher: The Knotty-Works
Date Added: 07/15/2017 02:20:06
Coppery Coolness 2 Page Background This is another title from The Knotty Works that I really admire. The polished look makes it “posh”, the writing space is an eye-catcher as well but not interfering with the readability of the text and last but not least, the whole picture arrangement makes it usable for both SciFi and Science-Fantasy (at least, it does so in my books). The price and license condition is more than fair and a true treat for those who just begin to release their own material.

Aethera Campaign Setting
by Ehn J.
Publisher: Legendary Games
Date Added: 07/15/2017 02:19:53
Aethera Campaign Setting [An Ehn's Gaming Foundry Review](https://ehnsgamingfoundry.tumblr.com/) The Aethera campaign setting was one that I’d had my eye on after I’d heard about it from others, and I’ve had some talks with its creator even before everything came out. But right now, I’d like to get into this slick sci fi setting to see if it’s the place to be for Starfinder, or if the Golarion System will reign supreme. We start by with an introduction by the creator talking about the genesis of the setting, and honestly, it brought a smile to my face to see how things were set into motion. It very much humanizes the writing staff and creator, Robert Brookes. From here, we jump straight into races (not counting the small comics which serve as chapter openers, which do a good job of setting the tone of the setting), which is actually quite a bit jarring. This may be the only large issue that I have with the book, but I would have preferred a section in which we were better introduced to general term...

Knotty Works Backgrounds March Celtic Set 1
by Kai P.
Publisher: The Knotty-Works
Date Added: 07/15/2017 02:16:36
Knotty Works Backgrounds March Celtic Set 1 This is a rock-solid package for those who begin to publish “generic fantasy” titles, especially in regard to item/list-based releases. The seven different color versions allow the author to establish “product lines” which the customers may be able to identify by the cover alone (and it is good to fit different moods or backgrounds of adventure material as well).

Apocalyptic 1 Page Background
by Kai P.
Publisher: The Knotty-Works
Date Added: 07/15/2017 02:13:28
Apocalyptic 1 Page Background I love this background. I really do. The playful little details near the corner turn it into something special, but it still does not interfere with the writing space. For Mutant Future(tm)-compatible releases, I cannot think of a better background, and I guess that it will suit other radioactive OSR-clones as well.

Burnt Umber 3 Page Background
by Kai P.
Publisher: The Knotty-Works
Date Added: 07/15/2017 02:09:59
Burnt Umber 3 Page Background I was unsure at first if the style of this page would fit my products. It reminded me of wood somehow and I wondered if this would really look good. Well, I found out it does! I use it for titles centered on dwarfs or fantasy in general. As with all of the products from the Knotty Works, the price and license condition is more than fair and a true treat for those who just begin to release their own material.

DDEX2-15 Black Heart of Vengeance (5e)
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/15/2017 01:59:24
DDEX2-15 Black Heart of Vengeance (5e) Just a great adventure. excellent mystery with a good dungeon crawl at the end. We played this when most of the table had just done Tyranny in Phlan, with increased the emotional stakes for the PCs. One of the best Season 2 mods.

Unique Building Brush for Gimp
by Denis T.
Publisher: Morgajel
Date Added: 07/14/2017 23:43:47
Unique Building Brush for Gimp Not so long ago I've watched the video, and there one designer made the RPG city maps in the SketchUp, and basic layer for that he used the sceme of all roofs he needed, so desing the roofs is very useful to make a 2,5D maps, not only in GIMP... However, I'd prefer the river set.

High Resolution Blank Star Maps
by Eric B.
Publisher: Stellagama Publishing
Date Added: 07/14/2017 23:22:38
High Resolution Blank Star Maps These are a set of blank hexes on a map. Straight forward, but so much more handy than you could ever imagine. If you have ever wanted to make your own maps for a game, and tried to make a page of hexes, you know how valuable a resource these are. I love them!

Grey Dungeon Tiles
by Eric B.
Publisher: Blue Sword Games
Date Added: 07/14/2017 23:20:03
Grey Dungeon Tiles I live in an area where I can't find many people to play with, so I spend a lot of my time playing alone, or making up my own games. These tiles are exactly what I need. There is so much they can be used for, including about any RPG that I have found out there. I am actually using them to enhance my Tomb Raider CCG. If you have ever seen this card game, you would see how this fits right in. I don't think anyone would be disappointed for buying this pack. The artwork is very thematic, as well....

Ultimate Mass Battle Guide (Savage Worlds)
by Joseph H.
Publisher: Mystical Throne Entertainment
Date Added: 07/14/2017 21:21:36
Ultimate Mass Battle Guide (Savage Worlds) Unlike the Ultimate Characters Guide, the Ultimate Mass Battle Guide is pretty well balanced for the most part, with the systems it adds being nice and generally not overly favoring one side or the other without very good reasons. It IS very overcomplicated for Savage Worlds (I actually have played and run GURPS with little issue;And even enjoy occasionally creating GURPS characters in my spare time; and yet I had a lot of trouble understanding how the additions to mass battles in this book are used), which means that it may defeat the purpose of Mass Battles as a way to speed up play, and will be very difficult to explain to others or even understand how to use it. Unfortunately, this and the Ultimate Characters Guide do not give me much confidence in how this publisher handles Savage Worlds, so I will be avoiding purchasing books by them in the future....

Ultimate Characters Guide (Savage Worlds)
by Joseph H.
Publisher: Mystical Throne Entertainment
Date Added: 07/14/2017 21:16:09
Ultimate Characters Guide (Savage Worlds) I feel like while this book has a lot of really great ideas, the execution of those ideas is either sub-par or terrible. most of the edges are either very underpowered or very overpowered, often outperforming other edges with higher rank requirements or much more intensive prerequisites. The Complimentary Skills rule allows Self-Assists, which makes little sense in most cases (even those it's quoted as being used for), the way Knowledge Skills give a flat bonus to things is not only unbalanced, but guarenteed to remove any need to roll save to figure out if the player rolled snake eyes. So why isn't this review for one star? Because the parts that refer to rules, edges, hindrances, racial abilities etcetera from the core book are by and large very well done, so long as they aren't used with the rules, edges, hindrances, or racial abilities from this book....
