Phoenix: Dawn Command Manual
by Billy C.
Publisher: Twogether Studios
Date Added: 04/24/2018 23:12:38
Phoenix: Dawn Command Manual Note: This is for the PDF itself, not for the core game. The core game itself is great I would rate it a 4 at least, maybe even a 5 though I have yet to play it. This PDF itself is quite poor. It is poorly optimized, especially with the full page images. The program I use (Adobe Acrobat Reader DC) freezes up for a good while before showing the image. This was tested on two different computers, but that being said your millage might vary. Though this is mostly a minor quibble, as there are only a handful of pages like this in the PDF. The main problem is that there is no internal bookmarking of any sort. This is a 468 page book and navigating it is a pain. Add on to that this is a $10 pdf that is in the effect a game aid (I say that because you have to own the core set to be able to play) just adds insult to injury. If we get bookmarking that alone will instantly make it a 4 star. The last minor thing is a reason given to buy this is so you can print parts of it out, and that i...

Phoenix Dawn Command: Intellect Player Expansion
by Billy C.
Publisher: Twogether Studios
Date Added: 04/24/2018 22:53:39
Phoenix Dawn Command: Intellect Player Expansion These cards are alright. Though by slightly different they really mean they are totally different. If you were to mix these with a normal deck it would be very obvious which cards were the original ones and which were these. The original cards are very nicely made, and have a non-glossy texture on them. These are very glossy and generally are of poorer quality. All in all if you are going to have five or six players constantly you might be better off getting a second core set. That way you have spares. Also do **Not** get these if you are replacing a lost card. It will be totally obvious and defeat the purpose....

Croaking Sirocco (Genesys Fantasy Adventure)
by Stephane G.
Publisher: BPB Games
Date Added: 04/24/2018 21:05:44
Croaking Sirocco (Genesys Fantasy Adventure) i have run this adventure, as a one-shot, for my friends, Matt, Blaine, Chris and my co-host Jaime from the RPG BREWERY podcast. i quickly read thru it, created some pre-gens and entered the npcs needed in my VTT. Genesys is an easy system to create PCs and NPCS, and i was ready to run it fairly quickly and easily. The more important NPCs are well described, but leave enough room for the GM to customize them The adventure is well written and has enough things happening to make this more than just a one-shot. Two, maybe three sessions would allow you run thru the whole story. I hoped to run it all in one night, but after four hours, we were still at least an hour away from the finale. i like this scenario, but there were a few typos, and some of the treasure mentioned seemed to be taken from a popular D20 system. This is not a bad thing, just my POV....

Dungeons for the Master
by Noah M.
Publisher: dicegeeks.com
Date Added: 04/24/2018 21:04:02
Dungeons for the Master This is probably one of the single best resources I own as a Game Master. This book gives almost everything a GM needs to create a complete adventure for a night of fun. You can pick any of the 177 maps and just roll randomly to fill the adventure with tons of unique and interesting encounters and events. The level of creativity the author went into is truly mind blowing to me. Whether I want to just throw together an adventure for the evening, or want to spice up a detailed campaign this book is extremely useful. The reasonable price is an added bonus as well....

The Book of Random Tables
by Noah M.
Publisher: dicegeeks.com
Date Added: 04/24/2018 20:51:05
The Book of Random Tables I've been a follower of the Dicegeeks newsletter for a long time and have nothing but positive remarks about the author and his creations. This very well priced book saves me a ton of time at my gaming table. While being able to randomly roll for content is part of the fun of these tables; they also serve as great inspiration for a scene. Sometimes I'll just go down the list and it helps inspire me to create much more immersive and interactive adventure settings. This book also helped expand my vocabulary with some of the items I found inside....

Sewer Rats
by kender m.
Publisher: Tricky Troll Games
Date Added: 04/24/2018 17:55:31
Sewer Rats I wish that this had been out BEFORE a friend ran Necessary Evil. That group has a player with a borderline overbearing need to play Good characters, and he almost sat out the NE campaign. I think he would have happily jumped in with a Sewer Rat. Since it's RAW instead of Necessary Evil level modification, this can be easily added to many Savage Worlds campaigns, or played stand alone for a TMNT flavored game.

33 Dungeon Maps

Publisher: dicegeeks.com
Date Added: 04/24/2018 16:17:46
33 Dungeon Maps I needed some quick drawings to sketch locations during sandbox adventures and 33 DUNGEON MAPS fit particularly well. I have detailed The Tomb of Isumbra for undead boss enemy, and I lead a great session. Thx for the maps, great job!

Xas Irkalla The system is easy to understand and works pretty good. The real thing here is the world, i never encountered a roleplaying game so dirty, dark and desperate, and i prefer dark stuff for a long time now. For any kind of dream/nightmare world strongly recommended.

Neath the Shadow #3 (zine)
by Stephen Y.
Publisher: Crooked Staff Publishing
Date Added: 04/24/2018 14:58:31
Neath the Shadow #3 (zine) At 48 pages, 43 are the content. This issue's contents are: Elvish ancestry (generating Elven forebears for your PC). Welcome Guests (a scenario). Calendar and weather details for the Northern Realm. Beastling descriptions (random charts to describe the troops of The Enemy). Runes of Power (more magical items). There are also 4 amps included in a separate folder. The cover is very nicely done. At £.14/$2.99, it's worth a look.

HELLSCAPES Corebook
by Ryan C.
Publisher: Scrivened, LLC
Date Added: 04/24/2018 14:07:44
HELLSCAPES Corebook While it is certainly not as polished as their other work, it lays a great foundation for Post-Apocalyptic activities and enemies. The crafting, scavenging and vehicle combat systems add unique flavor to any post-apocalyptic campaign. That being said, I do have some complaints, though they are minor complaints. 1. I'm a little disappointed that there was not a re-skinning of the Monk class. An apocalyptic monk would have been a great addition to the spectacular array of classes and sub-classes Hellscapes already presented. 2. The book felt a tad plain. The artwork that was there fit really well, but it would have been nice if the book had been presented more as a post-apocalyptic document you found, rather than just a plain text and pictures book. Overall this is a great product, and while it needs some tweaking in future expansions I think it's well worth the buy....

Dungeons for the Master This is fantastic to get some dungeons designs all set for you to put monsters in for your players to adventure in. Open ended so you can do what you want in them. Fantastic for a DM that needs to put something together quickly for an adventure.

DARK PLACES & DEMOGORGONS - Survive This!! - Core Rule Book OSR RPG
by Sergio N.
Publisher: Bloat Games
Date Added: 04/24/2018 10:05:04
DARK PLACES & DEMOGORGONS - Survive This!! - Core Rule Book OSR RPG This seems like a fun game. I say 'seems' because I have not played it yet, but hopefully will, soon (bought it yesterday). It is a fun to read book, and the pdf adapts well to a 10 inch tablet (even 5' mobile phone), although the pdf does not have a proper table of contents with links for easy access during play (please include one in a future update!). I like the OSR feel, which emphasizes the 80s style. The descriptions and new mechanics/rules seem to adapt very well to the setting. If I had to mention cons, one would be that there's not much description on the product page. For example, what is the vampire source-book about? I still remember The Lost Boys movie, and would be very interested to know if it is an adventure/campaign, separate setting, etc. As there are no reviews or discussions, I cannot tell. These, some minor typos I already forgot about and the lack of a TOC with links are not enough (to me) to take a star from this 5 star product. If, like me, Stranger Things broug...
