Everyman Minis: Festive Options
by Kim F.
Publisher: Rogue Genius Games
Date Added: 02/22/2018 12:55:54
Everyman Minis: Festive Options This was orignally reviewed on the Open Gaming Network: We take products and review them, intending to give the reader the best chance of evaluating whether this particular release is for them. There is, of course, a scoring system, similar to that used elsewhere, in a 5-star rating, which we have determined as follows: 1 * – Bad 2 * – Mediocre 3 * – Decent 4 * – Good 5 * – Excellent This week we take a look at Everyman Minis: Festive Options! **Publisher:** Rogue Genius Games **Author:** Luis Loza (according to the text – according to the setup it’s Alexander Augunas) **Cover Artist: **Jacob E. Blackmon **System:** Pathfinder **Page count: **7 ( 1 page cover, 1 page credits, 1 page introduction to Everyman Minis, 2 page content, 2 page OGL and back cover) Right, so let’s look at the cover first. As you’d expect this shows a festive scene (certainly looks like the Christmas holidays to me), with a bunch of characters getting presents. Decent en...

Allies, Contacts, Enemies & Rivals

Publisher: Spica Publishing
Date Added: 02/22/2018 12:28:54
Allies, Contacts, Enemies & Rivals A truly excellent resource for the Traveller GM, this suppliment is professionally produced and well-organized. The NPC characters are well-thought out and provide plenty of adventure hooks and plot points. It is well-worth the price.

Weapon Series Stock Art #1 When I was looking for sci-fi weapons for a RPG I was writing, this was the perfect patch. Great art, easy to work with!

B1 In Search of the Unknown (Basic)
by Michael S.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 02/22/2018 12:10:54
B1 In Search of the Unknown (Basic) This re-print is of inferior quality. I would not recommend purchasing the print edition as it is hard to read because of the poor quality of the original scan. Better off finding an original copy on eBay.

Storm and Sail
by Ian F W.
Publisher: Red Dice Diaries
Date Added: 02/22/2018 10:58:23
Storm and Sail I like FATE, and love pirates, so purchasing this product was a "no-brainer" for me. And I wasn't disappointed. The game follows all of the core mechanics of the original system - and adds some uniquely clever and entertaining treatments for this setting, which is rich in history and very well thought-out. You can have bare-foot duels with sword and pistol on white, sandy beaches, engage your rivals in thunderous broadsides on the tumultuous high seas, conduct witty banter with scantily-clad wenches while swinging from the chandelier of a bawdy tavern, and much, much more. Add elemental magic twisted in with religious fervour for good measure, and there you have it; "Storm & Sail". John and Lloyd have excelled themselves with this one. Sincerely, IanFW *doffs his hat and bows deeply* ...

Wisdom from the Wastelands Issue #45: Mutant Dinosaurs
by Wilfredo M.
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
Date Added: 02/22/2018 09:49:20
Wisdom from the Wastelands Issue #45: Mutant Dinosaurs Skirmisher specializes in inventive ideas to be applied in various settings, and dinosaurs in a pos-atomic setting is certainly one of the oddest- yet also one of the most interesting. But the ideas in the book go beyond the obvious; anyone could think about, say, a fire-breathing T-Rex, but here we have, to give but one example, a stegosaurus that turns into a subterrarean predator at night! Also, every single creature includes examples of how they fit in with humans and other creatures in the post-apocalyptic environment. In addition, as usual for Skirmisher books, there are also a few new optional rules, such as a "chaos" effect that warps reality in crazy ways, and advice on using them in a game. This is my favorite Skirmisher product so far this year. Highly recommended, and not just for Post-Apoc games- its a great source of ideas for Super Heroes or Anime, for example....

Moat Monsters: A Sourcebook for OGL RPGs
by Jason A.
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
Date Added: 02/22/2018 07:12:50
Moat Monsters: A Sourcebook for OGL RPGs Pretty good sourcebook for the price, great stat write ups for hazards, natural plants, and hired monsters to swim your defensive moat. Would have liked more passive defenses and traps, but this is dedicated to the monsters. Love Black Blocks and Pink Pike is disturbing. I never knew I needed to consider the moat until now, but also a great source for water hazards on a dungeon map.

Mouse Guard RPG 2nd Edition
by Chuck C.
Publisher: Archaia Entertainment LLC
Date Added: 02/22/2018 06:43:58
Mouse Guard RPG 2nd Edition This game is an improvement on an already excellent game, and works really well to create the feeling of the Mouse Guard comics. If you're interested in the Burning Wheel system, Mouse Guard also serves as an introduction.

B/X Essentials: Classes and Equipment
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Necrotic Gnome Productions
Date Added: 02/22/2018 03:55:28
B/X Essentials: Classes and Equipment An Endzeitgeist.com review The second B/X Essentials-book clocks in at 47 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page advertisement, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page index, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 38 pages of content, laid out for 6’’ by 9’’ (A5). So, what is this about? First things first: This was moved up in my reviewing-queue due to me receiving a print copy of the book. My review is primarily based on the premium print version of this book, though I have taken the pdf into account as well. Okay, so the Core Rules-supplement in this series was made to divorce the core rules from all associated flourishes, allowing for maximum flexibility and options to modify them; basically, to provide a version of the B/X-rules that can be used to run anything, from scifi, to horror to modern gaming. The Core Rules-pdf thus represents an OSR-DIY-hacker’s concisely-presented basics. But what if you actually wanted the accoutremen...

Village Backdrop: Silver Bluff (SNE)

Village Backdrop: Silver Bluff (SNE) An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of RSP's Village Backdrop-series is 11 pages long, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let's take a look at the settlement! Silver Bluff is a mining town with a twist - sprung up as little more than a better camp, it began in a promising manner...but then, the mine's silver started to run out. Let’s just say that the local population did not take kindly to these changes and the ramshackle ethnic composition alongside the lack of a governing body mean that this is very much a dangerous place to be. As far as the system neutral version is concerned, the pdf uses proper nomenclature, like thief, etc. and the conversion of the marketplace section is nice. The vast chasm that separates the camp from the mine is also one of the reasons why this village is haunted by howling windstorms, which also influence the dressing habits of the...

Dungeon Tiles for VTT - 24x24"

Dungeon Tiles for VTT - 24x24" The printed version is awesome! A guy brought it for a one-shot at our local store and pointed me to this one to try for my online game. The last mat added is definitely better than the older two versions included, but overall they're all pretty good and easy to use.

minimald6 Super rules lite, for your personal hacking pleasure. Over a dozen hacks already exist, and they are all dope. Simple enough that you could use it as a pick up game, just need 3d6 and some writing implements. Build your game on the fly using minimald6 as a framework! Great for younger players also.
