Gregorius21778: 100 names for androids and other artificial beings
by Jeff D.
Publisher: Kai Pütz a.k.a Gregorius21778
Date Added: 05/24/2017 00:50:46
Gregorius21778: 100 names for androids and other artificial beings **Decently presented. It is what it says it is... ** And now I see that this form requires fifty-characters... Dear DriveThru, as a small humble publisher myself, some might prefer a lesser character requirement. Say 10 characters. I'd like to see that put to vote if possible, as not all products reviewed need the fifty word format. Better yet, (down the road) even leaving the minimum based on the products themselves and up to the publisher, would be awesome. Sorry, Greg. J.L. Duncan ...

The Dragonspawn - Dungeon World Companion Class FINE TWENTY FOR AN O wait sorry, wrong chat window. this is pretty awesome, the creator put a ton of time into the art and balancing of the advanced moves, having to choose between the inner form unleashed and the flesh of quicksilver was an immediate and definite decision point.

INDEX CARD RPG Core Set
by Emory P.
Publisher: RUNEHAMMER GAMES
Date Added: 05/23/2017 21:43:10
INDEX CARD RPG Core Set Quick review: Index Card RPG is brilliant. I've thought D&D 5e was as clean and streamlined a tabletop system as you could get, but I was wrong. Some highlights: -Truly self-contained. No marketing BS here: everything you need is in this product; settings, monsters, encounter design. What took WotC ~5-600+ pages Runehammer Games gets done in less than 150. - No derivative maths. - Banana-scale movement. Instead of watching hours of Master Ferinale on his YouTube channel just get this ruleset. Everything he has ever suggested, discussed, or shown in his videos is distilled into this pocket-size wonder. But still go watch his videos at Drunkens & Dragons. They're amazing....

Librarian Hybrid Class

Librarian Hybrid Class Really enjoy this class. Not only is the presentation very well done the writing is solid. The class seems very balanced and I kind of can't wait for one of my current PF characters to die so I can roll one up! Really, really like this class. I didn't give it full marks only because I ahven't had a chance to play it and it might have a hard time fitting into a party, but it has enough versatility to find an excellent support role. Edit having somemore extensive playtime I find the class of average to low power level.heThe issue is  that so much in the  book is  unclearunclear and doesn't make sense . Certainly needs some editing.       ...

INDEX CARD RPG Core Set This is amazing. Light set of rules that make sense, two Setting Primers within - one fantasy, one sci-fi -, a **LOT** of advices for GMing and Encounter Building that is not restricted to the system (as most of the rules in there - easily adaptable to any system IMO), new monsters and the rare monster-making advice make this an amazing GM tool. Focusing on the story and enjoyment rather than long bookeeping, this delivers a game that certainly will be my go-to every time.

Deadly Delves: The Gilded Gauntlet (PFRPG)
by Rick H.
Publisher: Jon Brazer Enterprises
Date Added: 05/23/2017 18:25:28
Deadly Delves: The Gilded Gauntlet (PFRPG) I got to run though part of this adventure at an event this last weekend, and consequently purchased it to use in my home game. As a player, the parts I played through were hugely enjoyable, and reading though the rest I'm not disappointed. The adventure is fairly straight foreward-on the surface. There isn't great complication in information to track or maps to explored. There are, however, many out-of-the-box problems that need to be carefully considered. I really liked this approach- the information the characters require is readily available, but making sense of it is key. Further, the encounters mix monsters with hazards in interesting environments. There's a lot of content for the price, and I look forward to using it....

INDEX CARD RPG Core Set

Publisher: RUNEHAMMER GAMES
Date Added: 05/23/2017 17:51:53
INDEX CARD RPG Core Set Simple, clean and easy game mechanics. Just from readeing this first few pages you know this is a game of story and action, not bookkeeping. Also, as a guy with a vision problem I love the fact that it is very readable and consistant with it's look. That alone is worth at least a good 3 stars. The one gripes I can see anyone having is that this game would be best with a group that is active and thinks about what who and what their characters are and, there is a lack of constant examples/sidebars many games seem to use these days but to me that's not even a minor point....

Atla Tabletop Guide
by Travis C.
Publisher: Forager Business Collective
Date Added: 05/23/2017 16:38:17
Atla Tabletop Guide What is it that drew me into Atla? Well when your surrounded by games that throw complicated mechanics, and lots of numbers at you its hard to really spend time in a world. You spend time crunching numbers and skimming through skills, which disrupt the flows of the narrative. I find myself wanting to be part of a story, where the world never lifts away from my minds eyes, but rather rushes off in all directions. Atla brings me to a place where i don't focus on the technical side of a game, but rather just sit back and tell a story with friends. If you want to have a fun time with friends, or introduce other friends into table top role playing i suggest Atla. Every person gets their chance to be something great, be it a small gun slinging mouse to an awkward well meaning bear. Everyone has a chance to leave a footprint in the soils of Atla, and leave the story of a legends behind them. ...

INDEX CARD RPG Core Set Very fluid mechanics... love it. This system represents a refinement of core rpg elements, used across tables through the years. Simple, yet - quite profound. Enjoy!

The Nephilim
by Jonathan L.
Publisher: Halls of the Nephilim
Date Added: 05/23/2017 15:22:09
The Nephilim This Swords & Wizardry supplement is well worth the meager cost of admission. Anyone who follows the author's blog knows that he is very good at telling stories with game content, and that's on full display here. The class, monsters, and items presented here can be worked easily into any OSR game and will probably inspire some adventure and campaign ideas just in reading over them!

Mage The Awakening Tarot
by P. B.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 05/23/2017 12:38:55
Mage The Awakening Tarot What can I say about this? The deck is lovely at all levels. Gorgeous art, well printed, presented in a fine tuck box, a fantastic deal for a very nice tarot, whether you use it for **Mage: The Awakening** or not, it is worth the money. Two criticisms: First is that the 'insert' for the rules isn't available to buy in PoD, but know that I do understand the limitations of such. Second is that the insert only covers the major arcana, which makes the fact that I already own the **Keys to the Supernal Tarot** (available separately from this same site) all the more important. Note that you WILL want that book, too, in order to get the most out of this deck in a game, but it's not necessary by any means. The above notwithstanding, I cannot say enough about how great this deck is. Very pleased....

V20 Dark Ages Companion
by P. B.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 05/23/2017 12:18:41
V20 Dark Ages Companion The one thing I found wanting from **V20 Dark Ages** was world building, and this book offers a good deal of that, as well as some wonderful additions to stories begun in the previous interations of **Vampire** in the Dark Medieval era. Know that I give this five stars, but I'm rounding up from, like, a four-and-a-half stars rating? I'd knock off a little for some of the art (there's one piece in particular that looks straight up lifted out of Poser), and I think that the Clan Apocrypha bits are a tad hit-and-miss. However, there is WAAAY more to love than hate here! We receive not only updates to domains like Constantinople and Rome, but we get a look at places well outside of Europe such as Mogadishu and Mangalore ('Mangaluru' in the old form here) in Africa and India, respectively. The domain descriptions fall short of a full 'by Night' book coverage, but they are far more than we'd see in a brief blurb within a core rule book. You mileage may vary on how well each finds the righ...

Abandoned Station
by Aram d. B. O.
Publisher: DramaScape
Date Added: 05/23/2017 11:34:49
Abandoned Station The overall design of the map looks immediately impressive. Regrettably, when zooming in on it after purchase and later when printing it out I realized the very poor resolution of everything, which makes it look very pasty and unsharp. Plus, the grid seems a little out of the way in some places of the map, creating squares for figures to stand on where it doesn't make much sense for the to do so (half inside a wall, etc.). All in all, a great map in theory, but a very unsatisfying product.

Pisskids and Ratbags This short free hack of Laser and Feelings is hilarious! I don't watch the show it is based around but now I kinda want to just to see the train wrecks that you can adapt to the game. Mechanically simple and well presented.
