DCC RPG Free RPG Day 2016

DCC RPG Free RPG Day 2016 Remarking on how Goodman Games has been an enthusiastic supporter of Free RPG Day since its inception in 2007, they're now proud to present two adventures. Moreover, they've gone overboard on covers with five different designs which were distributed randomly to retailers. Those who download the PDF get to see them all! For Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG there is a Level 1 adventure called The Madhouse Meet, set in the forthcoming Lankhmar campaign setting (yes, the Fritz Leiber one). As a 'meet' adventure, it's designed to start off a campaign in Nehwon by throwing a disparate bunch of player characters together as they attempt to escape the clutches of a bizarre sorcerer from lands far beyond Lankhmar. It's designed for four characters but will work with fewer. After some background explanation for the GM, the adventure begins with our luckless heroes banged up in a cell. Hopefully they'll make a break for freedom... A lot of use is made of Luck, and there's a note to the effect that g...

M-space As a long time fan of Runequest and all of the D100 systems, this is a fantastic Sci-fi/space opera game. The layout is sharp and well thought out. I would recommend this game to anyone looking for a good Sci-fi game.

101 Desert Spells (PFRPG)

101 Desert Spells (PFRPG) An review This massive compilation of desert-themed spells clocks in at 57 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 3 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with a rather massive 51 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This review was moved up in my reviewing queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. Now, as always, we begin this pdf with a massive array of spell lists by class and level, covering the classes up to and including the ACG classes, but not the occult classes. From there, we move right into this massive compilation of spells, beginning with Aghasura’s bluff, a 3rd level spell that allows you to beckon targets towards you. They just move closer on their next round, perceiving others entranced as allies, as they move closer. The spell, alas, does not state that this compulsion cannot make targets walk into obvious danger/offers rerolls for them, which is a rather important caveat for such compulsions. Cool, th...

The Manor, Issue #6

Publisher: GM Games

The Manor, Issue #6 An review The sixth installment of the OSR-zine „The Manor“ clocks in at 28 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page introduction, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 24 pages of content, so let’s take a look! It should be noted that the editorial sports a content-warning this time around – this issue of “The Manor” deals with mature topics – not in an explicit manner, mind you, but enough to offend some people. If you’re particularly prude regarding depictions of sexuality, you may take offense regarding the one picture herein of a spider/lady hybrid, which features exposed boobs. The issue includes a new class designed primarily for NPCs – this would be the guard, who represents the watchmen. Prime Attribute would be Strength (5% bonus on Str 13+) and the class permits all weapons and armor as well as shields and does not have any racial restrictions. The guard gets d8 HD up until 9th level, with a ½ to hit progression. Saves progress from 1...

Deep Magic: Blood & Doom for 5th Edition

Deep Magic: Blood & Doom for 5th Edition An review This installment of Kobold Press‘ Deep Magic-series clocks in at 19 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2/3 of a page SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 15 1/3 pages of content, so let’s take a look! So, the first thing you need to know is that we get a new sacred oath herein – The Giving Grave. This oath, however, represents more the concept of the antipaladin, rather than the paladin. As some 5e-players are wont to claim, the paladin class is removed from its LG-shackles in 5e; while technically true, the class features and general build don’t really lend themselves well to representing the concept of the anipaladin per se, which is why we begin with two alternate class features that a paladin en route to swearing the oath to darkness receives: Unholy Smite replaces Divine Smite, changing the damage type to necrotic and the particularly hard-hit targets to celestials, good-aligned fey and dragons. Improved divine smite, at 11th leve...

Zodiac Empires Fantasy Campaign Setting I had so much fun playing a game at GenCon2017 with Joe Ho as the DM. I had so much fun playing a Vasar, the dragon race. I had to buy at least the PDF while i was there and have been itching to run/play this game ever since! There is definitally more there than the few hours i got to play so there is alot you can use and make your own game with! The unique races to the world are just that, unique, they aren't renamed generics, they are their own race with abilities and history.

DCC Lankhmar: Masks of Lankhmar

Publisher: Goodman Games
Date Added: 04/19/2018 13:17:13
DCC Lankhmar: Masks of Lankhmar This 1st-level adventure set in the city of Lankhmar is intended as a 'meet' adventure at the beginning of the campaign, an opportunity for the party to form up and forge some common bonds as well as to complete the adventure. It's designed for a small group but will require both a wizard and a thief. There's a succinct background for the GM, and then an explanation of how the adventure begins - it's suggested that it begins in media res, and runs fast and fun to at least one of three possible climaxes, depending on what the characters get up to as the adventure progresses. Put succinctly, what will become the party encounter one another as each character independently decides that it would be a good idea to burgle the home of a renowned collector of valuable items and caravan master on the night he's throwing a big party to celebrate the acquisition of his latest piece. At this masked ball, all the player-characters find themselves in the cellar antichamber to the collector's treas...

The Dark West There I were, having just spent two and a half days in Tombstone AZ, soaking up some the awesome western history there , when I started having nostalgic memories of playing Boothill 2nd ed. back in the eighties ... This kicked off a day long search and review hunt on all available western themed Rpgs, I came across the Dark West rpg here on this site and downloaded it , and read thru it in one sitting and I completely grasped and new how to play it just from one reading, this is now my go to western Rpg ! I liked it so much i signed back in and repurchased it with money this time for the authors efforts . I will briefly list its features ; Three methods of resoloution , Dice , simple cards , and slightly more involved cards .. im really liking what im calling here "simple cards. Character gen is very easy , and quick , yet still has some old school crunch to it . Good selection of weapons , clothing , and gear as well as mounts and things common to the era. Sytem for weapons and combat...

GATEWAY - The d20 Tabletop Roleplaying Game
by J. B.
Publisher: Aurican's Lair
Date Added: 04/19/2018 04:31:46
GATEWAY - The d20 Tabletop Roleplaying Game Gateway is a really great introduction to 5e and rules-lite variant of the system. It places the 5e idea of Advantage/Disadvantage as the core-mechanic over actual numbers, which is imho the best part of the 5e system. More/less d20 rolls are basically what most players, new and old alike, look to make. This definitely falls under the heading of a more RP-focused game, which is more of what I'm a fan of, in the same vein of say Traveller as opposed to GURPS. This is literally a perfect 'gateway' game for introducing people to gaming, and especially 5e. ...

Asian Archetypes: Magical

Publisher: Legendary Games
Date Added: 04/19/2018 04:08:49
Asian Archetypes: Magical An review The second book of archetypes for Asian settings clocks in at 40 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of introduction, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 31 pages of content, chock-full with new material – remember, Legendary Games books have a LOT of words per page, so we have a lot of ground to cover! It should be noted that this pdf features some spells from Legendary Games’ massive Asian Spell Compendium – but you do not need to purchase it to use this book – all spells referenced have been reproduced herein for your convenience. Big kudos for that! The first archetype herein would be the Bodhisattva paladin, who must be of good alignment and loses proficiency with heavy armor. Instead of aura of good, we get a +2 bonus to Diplomacy and to Intimidate with good creatures, a minus 2 penalty to Diplomacy with evil creatures. Paladin spells with the [good]...
