RND - issue 1
by Odobald O.
Publisher: thunder bunny press
Date Added: 04/24/2018 00:07:32
RND - issue 1 Whether it is intelligence or creativity I'm lacking, I don't know, but I just didn't get it. It looks cool, it seems to offer a lot of material, and I have a feeling it has a lot of potential, but I couldn't figure out how to best make use of it - or even how to make any use of it, for that matter. That being said, I actually urge you to give it a try. Maybe you can find a way to make it work for you. After all, if I'm too thick to get it, that doesn't necessarily have to mean you won't enjoy it!...

Fragged Kingdom

Fragged Kingdom A fan of the Fragged Empire system, I think this book is the almost missing peice to flesh out the Empires universe.

DRAGONLOCK Miniatures: Turdle Fighters
Publisher: Fat Dragon Games
Date Added: 04/23/2018 19:24:36
DRAGONLOCK Miniatures: Turdle Fighters These tortle STLs are superb. I printed the spear tortle at 100 microns, and it's fantastic - I can see the eyelids and creases in the detail, and the shell is nearly perfect. Cleanup was minor, probably 30 seconds or less - and the tortle print was usable immediately, with no supports (I did use a raft to anchor the model on the print bed). I'd love to see some dragonborn/draconian STLs, and if Fat Dragon made them, I'd buy them!

DDAL07-08 Putting the Dead to Rest (5e)
by Joshua G.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 04/23/2018 16:47:20
DDAL07-08 Putting the Dead to Rest (5e) What was good. 1. It has a great reward in the end for a certain class. 2. The second combat was pretty interesting if run right Were it missed the mark 1. Most of the combats were pretty simplistic and not very interesting. 2. Social aspect was non existant. 3. Exploration aspect was non existant 2. Some confusion towards the end. Not sure if you needed a certain faction to finish or not. 3. Faction secret mission was a little vague and not very interesting. 4. Final Battle was not very intersting and pretty easy IMHO. 5. Not very many clues to allow players to discover the story. Was more like the BBEG monologueing so that the characters understood the story. If you have a Druid PC then run this otherwise I would pass....

Saqueadores na Fronteira
by Daniel C.
Publisher: Letraimpressa
Date Added: 04/23/2018 15:56:02
Saqueadores na Fronteira O produto foi traduzido e apresentado com muito esmero e profissionalismo por parte do Marcelo Paschoalin. Comparei vários trechos com a original, e a versão brasileira tá simplesmente tão boa quanto ou mesmo melhor. O maior diferencial da eidção brasileira é que o Marcelo conseguiu permissão do autor para adicionar várias regras novas da 2e do Freebooters, que ainda não foram lançadas oficialmente lá fora. Ou seja, temos acesso a muito material ainda inédito, incluindo os playbooks das classes, etc. Recomendo muito a todos os fãs de Dungeon World e de jogos old school!...

Torg Eternity - Free RPG Day Special
by Paolo G.
Publisher: Ulisses Spiele
Date Added: 04/23/2018 15:35:02
Torg Eternity - Free RPG Day Special Tried this out with a new group of role players recently and we loved it. I'm glad it came with pregen characters and the charts to quickly reference the rules needed to get into the action quick. I initially thought it was going to be a quick game but leave it to the players to veer off the straighforward plot to turn the end into a cliffhanger with an exciting chase scene and blockade run. You don't need the core rulebook to figure things out but it certainly helps. Highly recommended for a fun night, even for newbies....

Monsterhearts 2
by Ben D.
Publisher: Buried Without Ceremony
Date Added: 04/23/2018 15:32:30
Monsterhearts 2 Monsterhearts 2 is a game for sexy teen monsters to have melodramatic interactions, but, it goes out of its way to be “sexy” and “edgy”, which to me was actually a turn off. Mechanically, the game is fine. It follows the standard Powered by the Apocalypse layout, with a few minor name changes to suit the game’s style. I think MOST of the skins were well thought out, each skin representing a different kind of monster, and the abilities therein. I do not like the Mortal aka the human. Its abilities lead me to believe that the “best” way to play this character is as the victim of abuse, and you have very few choices beyond that. The art is so-so. The cover is the best art by far; with the interior art looking like someone used a marker to copy pictured of goths and punks. The vast majority of the monsters look like normal people. Maybe this is part of the game, that monsters have to “blend in”, but for a game that pronounces itself as out and proud, I’d like the monsters to look lik...

In The Company of Fiends
by David C.
Publisher: Rite Publishing
Date Added: 04/23/2018 14:26:15
In The Company of Fiends I can see this being a divisive title, but right now it’s probably my favorite of the “In The Company Of” series because of how well it captures the feel of playing a fiend (if not a specific type of fiend; more on that later). This book offers evocative flavor text, a cool new race, and a solid, playable new class that feels very fiendish. The art ranges from passable to quite good, and on the whole this is a book I’m excited to use in a future game. The new race, the nephilim, are humanoid creatures that have been more or less permanently possessed by disembodied fiendish spirits. The precise metaphysics of this are left somewhat vague, although there is a handy sidebar discussing how to handle an existing PC or NPC who becomes a nephilim during play. I like this race rather a lot; they positively drip with flavor and potential GM hooks, and I would consider using them as a replacement for tieflings in a future campaign. Mechanically, the ramifications of their unique form of poss...

Torg Eternity - Free RPG Day Special
by Matthew K.
Publisher: Ulisses Spiele
Date Added: 04/23/2018 07:46:11
Torg Eternity - Free RPG Day Special You can see the infulences of the Savage Worlds system (common games designer) with this rewrite. Saying that, don't be put off; it's a good rewrite; streamlined system whilst still keeping the feel of the original. It still has the (updated) drama deck (inlcuding cosm specific cards) and d20 to bonus chart lookup system. The system now has 3 levels of success (success, outstanding etc.) which will make story telling much easier ('so I got a +9 over the difficult, how much of a success is that?'). There are bonus damage dice (dependant on success level) instead of just the attack bonus; which adds to the system and stops the 'glass jaw ninja' problem. There are now only 5 stats (Str. Dex. Mind. Cha. Spirit) instead of the original 7(?) which again makes things simplier. They have introduced a Perks system (kind of like feats in D&D or advantages in GURPS or Savage Worlds) which if kind of cool, but this limits the number of special abilities you can have (magic spells, psonics e...

April Augmented - 2018

April Augmented - 2018 An review It’s that time of the year again! Usually, I try to have the April’s Fool-product reviews done in time for April 1st, but this year, I got them all either on that day or after it, so yeah – please excuse the delay! This year’s April Augmented-installment by Dreamscarred Press clocks in at 12 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, ½ a page editorial, leaving us with 9.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look! So, first of all, we get a Bloodforge (Infusion)-style new race – the Doggo! And no. It’s not another anthropomorphized dog-race. It’s a dog-race. You know, like in M.I.B. and various other forms of media? You can play an intelligent, talking dog! And that awakened dog? Yeah, you can play him. Doggos are augmented magical beasts, Medium, have a speed of 40 ft. and get +2 Str and Cha, -2 Int. Their language (beyond that of the awakener) is btw. called “Bork”, which made me grin. They get +1 natural AC, +2 to Survival and Acrobatics, low-light visio...

Deep Magic: Elemental Magic for 5th Edition

Publisher: Kobold Press
Date Added: 04/23/2018 04:08:23
Deep Magic: Elemental Magic for 5th Edition An review This installment of the Deep Magic-series clocks in at 16 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2/3 of a page SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 12 1/3 pages of content, so let’s take a look! We begin this pdf with a discussion on the dangers of elementals existing in the material plane and elementalism in general, including a nice little section on the role of these magic traditions in Midgard. Traditions? Plural? Yep, we get a sorcerous origin, a warlock otherworldly patron and a wizard arcane tradition on the class option side of things. We also receive two new feats: Negotiator increases Charisma by 1 to the maximum of 20 and lets you retry a failed Charisma (Persuasion) check at disadvantage. It also lets you haggle for a 10 % discount with a contest (and a 1-week cooldown per person to prevent abuse) as well as halved living expenses. The second feat, Survivor, increases Constitution by 1 and makes you require only half the f...

The Mentalist's Handbook

Date Added: 04/23/2018 04:03:49
The Mentalist's Handbook An review This installment of the Spheres of Power-expansion books clocks in at 32 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 27 pages of content, so let’s take a look! As always, we begin this supplement with a brief piece of nice introductory prose before getting an overview of the content within, moving then forward towards the new archetypes, of which there are 4 this time around. The first would be the impressor fighter, who replaces the armor training ability sequence with the emotions eliciter class feature, gaining an emotion power of his choice at 3rd level and every 4 levels thereafter, using fighter levels as eliciter levels. 5th level acts as the minimum cap for lesser powers, 8th for greater powers and 11th for master powers. The archetype employs Intelligence as governing ability modifier. AT 19th level, the archetype may execute an emotion power as part of a full attack, here erroneousl...

DDAL07-07 Rotting Roots (5e) This is one of the better season seven stories. The motivations are clear and the story flows well. The combat is very balanced, even if the end boss it significant.
