DDAL05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber (5e)
by john j.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast

DDAL05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber (5e) It is a good module to introduce players to both 5th edition and Adventure league. Very combat focused. It would been better to run with both parts to provide a more balanced module.

A Little Bit of Thievery

A Little Bit of Thievery A great one shot that gives your players something out of the ordinary for 1st level. The players can tackle this so many different ways! Just be prepared to do a lot of improv because your players won't do what you might think they will!

INDEX CARD RPG Core Set This kind of blew my mind. ICRPG is a pretty rules light game, so if you want tons of different rules for everything THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. However rules light does not necessary mean mechanics light if that makes any sense to you. Hankrin (or if you wanna be technical Brandish) has some really interesting design ideas but what stands out to me the most is the GM chapter. If you're not interested in the system I'd still say get the book just for the GM stuff alone wich tbh is the main reason for me to buy RPG books in the first place: more GM Ideas. But where most RPGs come to the GM chapter and basicly just say hey you're a GM, go do GM-things, ICRPG actually gives you guidelines on how to GM. Holy fly that GM chapter. I dont think I've seen a GM chapter before that was that gave you that many mechanical ideas about how to make your game faster and more dramatic. (apart from maybe some PbtA stuff but those are usually more focused on giving you narrative tips) The session-end...

A Spark in Fate Core

A Spark in Fate Core I've been looking for a way to build a world that my friends would be invested in to introduce them to Fate and stumbled upon this in a google+ group. After reading it I definitely can't wait to put this to use and get some inspiration from my group! The suggested method is clear and concicely written with excellent illistrative examples. Highly recommended for an aspiring GM like myself

4AD Game Board: a one-page play sheet for Four Against Darkness

4AD Game Board: a one-page play sheet for Four Against Darkness Very good sheet to keep everything on one page. I like the smaller ones for shorter runs and the bigger ones when I feel like spending more time on it.

DSA5 - Landkartenset Die Siebenwindküste (PDF) als Download kaufen
by Merlin T.
Publisher: Ulisses Spiele
Date Added: 02/20/2018 17:38:33
DSA5 - Landkartenset Die Siebenwindküste (PDF) als Download kaufen In der Hoffnung, dass irgendwann noch Karten in einer höheren Auflösung hochgeladen werden habe ich bisher von einer Review abgesehen, da mir die Auflösung der Karten einfach zu schlecht war. Wollte ich meinen Spielern z.B. einen kleineren Ausschnitt der Region zeigen, in der sie sich gerade herumtreiben, wurde es schnell pixelig (und hierbei rede ich von einer Vergrößerung, in der die Schrift gerade erst angenehm lesbar wurde). Letzte Woche kam nun endlich das ersehnte Update und meine Hoffnungen wurden übertroffen! Ein kleiner Vergleich: Bei der niedrigauflösenden Ingame Karte wird die Schrift auf einem 15 Zoll Monitor bereits unscharf, wenn man die Karte so weit vergrößert, dass rechts und links der Rand nicht mehr zu sehen ist. Bei der hochauflösenden Karte kann man auf demselben Monitor sogar auf das Delta des Großen Flusses heranzoomen, ohne dass etwas unscharf wird. Einziger verbleibender Wermutstropfen ist für mich das Satelitenansicht-artige Design der Detailkarte, mi...

DDAL07-10 Fire, Ash, and Ruin (5e)
by Marco G.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 02/20/2018 17:36:45
DDAL07-10 Fire, Ash, and Ruin (5e) It's been thoroughly discussed here, but Fire, Ash, and Ruin, as-premiered, falls flat on its face as a Tier 3 mod due to total lack of balance in the encounters. The adventure states it is balanced for five level thirteen adventurers, yet throws a multitude of encounters at the party that do not even register on the encounter-difficulty-by-CR scale. Like, not even "Easy"--they should be nonexistent. This results in confusion on the parts of the players and the adventure rapidly devolves into a slogfest. With heavy modification of the encounters I was able to present a reasonable number of encounters that each challenged the party to some degree, though I left the final encounter unmodified and, even having missed one of the earlier objectives, it ended up being a total cakewalk. Were I going to run this again I'd end up combining the encounters even further into just three or four and tripling or even quintupling their CR's. I might also dramatically reduce the impact of the ...

DDAL07-01 A City on the Edge (5e)
by Marco G.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 02/20/2018 17:27:24
DDAL07-01 A City on the Edge (5e) While these mods function well as an introduction to Port Nyanzaru's faction representatives and the city itself, some of the adventure lines suffer from poor descriptions that I found myself needing to smooth out or even rewrite altogether. Run as a linear series of adventures, this module tells a fascinating story full of suspense and intrigue. Run separately, most of the adventures function as short and sweet excursions, though a couple of them do leave the party wondering "ok, but why do we care?" due to lack of greater context. The conclusion is great, and with a little bit of DM modification the storyline can flow very smoothly. They do tend to run long, but that's no fault of 7-01....

DDAL06-01 A Thousand Tiny Deaths (5e)
by Marco G.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 02/20/2018 17:19:32
DDAL06-01 A Thousand Tiny Deaths (5e) A Thousand Tiny Deaths is a very flexible mod, with potential to be a pointed welcome to dungeon delves for newer players or a monstrously oppressive needle-filled challenge for the more deserving. I do find that, run strictly as-written, character deaths are very likely without a clever idea on how to address the titular environmental hazard. Most of my groups do come up with a creative way to avoid said hazard, however, which lets the dungeon play out as a smooth, interesting, and fun series of encounters culminating in a boss fight with great potential for roleplay, hilarity, and tension. Definitely a big fan, though some DM intervention is required to keep it fun for new players....

Dungeon Tiles: DM Essentials Good tileset for sure. Looks fairly straight forward and is easy to use. No mistaking where things are. Price and aesthetic quality are just right. Had no problems while using on Roll20. Recommend!

Mind's Eye Theatre Prop Deck

Mind's Eye Theatre Prop Deck Sadly thos card deck isn't compatible with the actual Mind Eyes Theatre game (MET - The Masquerade). So you can only use some blood and willpower cards. If there is an updated versiuon of it, i would buy it at once.

I Love the Corps: Mission Dossier
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Psychic Cactus Games
Date Added: 02/20/2018 09:04:24
I Love the Corps: Mission Dossier If you are bewildered by the array of potential offered by I Love the Corps RPG and are not sure quite where to start, this work contain three full adventures jam-packed with science-fiction military action horror to keep your group busy for quite a while! They are distinctly different, so you might like to try them all to taste the scope of the game or pick the one closest to the sort of game that you and your group prefer, perhaps using that to start off your own campaign. Given the differences between them, each comes with pre-generated characters suited to the demands of the adventure in question. The adventures involve Peacekeepers contending with dark forces behind organised riots, Intelligence Operatives investigating a mysterious lone city on an unexplored planet and a crack Black Ops team with no idea where they are. Each one highlights different aspects of the game from high action gorefests to low action investigation, but all provide opportunities for combat and more pea...

D&D Rules Cyclopedia (Basic)
by Gregg L.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 02/20/2018 08:25:15
D&D Rules Cyclopedia (Basic) I ordered the Print On Demand version and got it 2/12/18. Bashed corners due to inadequate packing when mailed (that's what happens with only a cardboard wrapper for protection), and the printing on my spine isn't centered well. I've requested a replacement, so we'll see how it looks when I receive it. The binding is excellent, and the pages are thick and have a nice weight (but aren't glossy, like the newer rulebooks). While the print quality is good, it's far from perfect. Granted it's perfectly readable, but when you take a close look, you can easily tell it's a scan, since the text is not sharp, and the boxes images are in can have jagged lines since they were not scanned straight (although some pages fair better than others). Take a look at the full sized sample pdf and you'll know what to generally expect. Be aware that while well organized, it's not as tightly written as modern rulebooks. For example, regaining hit points for resting has been left out (although it's in the...

Class of 198X - The Adventure
by Jayden L.
Publisher: Unicorn Rampant Publishing
Date Added: 02/20/2018 06:49:23
Class of 198X - The Adventure I was quite a fan of this adventure after watching the Cow Chop playthrough and attempted to run it myself. The Premise: Imagine if John Hughes, Wes Craven, and Steven Spielberg were in the same room. Now imagine that room blew up and some guy wanted to make a movie in their honor, now imagine that guy made a Troma film instead. This adventure dwelves into the modern age of the 1980s and tries to conquer horror, action, mystery, and comedy with three general approaches leading to the same story. One approach is to have the players play as ordinary D&D adventurers from Waterdeep or where ever they hailed from, the party is somehow transported into the modern world in a mall of a suburban town and must figure out how to get back while adjusting to the mundane world of the 1980s. The second approach is to play as Sci-Fi space police or Modern investigators who detected paranormal activity at a mall in a suburban town and must investigate and terminate the possible threat. The Third ap...

Everyman Minis: Mystic Scrivener

Everyman Minis: Mystic Scrivener An review This installment of the Everyman Minis-series clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page advertisement, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 2 pages of content, so let’s take a look! The pdf begins with a sidebar describing the basic understanding of the multiverse the scriveners are supposed to have, elaborating upon the concept of the Language of Creation. After this brief summary, we dive into the proper archetype; the mystic scrivener is an investigator archetype that alters alchemy: Instead of the usual benefits, the mystic scrivener adds the bonus to Linguistics and Profession (scribe). Additionally, the mystic scrivener gains read magic as a constant SP and may cast arcane mark at-will, changing which runes, markings etc. make up his mark whenever casting it. The mark consists of a number of letters or markings equal to 6 + class level; the scrivener uses class level as caster level. Instead of preparing extracts, the scriven...
