VTT Battlemap - Royal Garden
by adam l.
Publisher: DM Philosophy
Date Added: 04/21/2018 08:19:19
VTT Battlemap - Royal Garden This is a very good product. I have bought a couple of maps from these guys and I have enjoyed all the various options that come with them. there are tons of various options to fit exactly what you are needing for your campaign: Night/Day maps, Grid/Gridless, High resolution/Low resolution maps (Low Resolution is great for putting the map on Roll20 or a similar site) and every combination of these that you could want. In addition to this, they give you various perspective shots of the area, so you can get a 3D feel for what is going on throughout the entire map. The price is on the higher end for a map, but with all the extra options that you get from them I would give it a very serious consideration if I were you. I wouldn't hesitate if I ever saw it on sale and I will definitely be buying more of their products in the future....

Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition Quick-Start Rules
by Chris G.
Publisher: Chaosium
Date Added: 04/21/2018 07:08:54
Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition Quick-Start Rules I have always had a passing interest in Call of Cthulu. As someone who had gotten away from RPG's years ago in favor of tabletop wargames, I had always overlooked it in favor of something else. Then I stumbled upon Seth Skorkowski's reviews on YouTube and my interest was piqued. When I found out I could download the Quick- Start rules for free just to give them a try, I didn't have any excuses. So far , my son and I have created a couple of characters and are working out way through the game dynamics and I have to say I'm hooked! I'll be placing an order soon (probably for Pulp Cthulu first). Great job on the rules- they're excellent!...

DDAL06-02 The Redemption of Kelvan (5e)
by Kent F W.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 04/21/2018 01:12:12
DDAL06-02 The Redemption of Kelvan (5e) i have had two experiences with this module, firstly as a player at a convention, and then as a DM in a home AL game... as others have said, this module is heavy on puzzles and deadly traps. the puzzles were well thought-out, unique, generally fun, and the solutions were never so esoteric that the PCs lost hope. in my home game i tried a relaxed pace with some roleplay in the beginning, and we had more than doubled the runtime for the adventure by the end of it (it is designed to be 2 hours). even when i participated in the adventure at a con, the DM made the wise choice of dropping the middle room from the dungeon so that we would make it through in time. i would HIGHLY recommend keeping this option open if you are on time constraints, because the nature of the puzzles will have some groups taking much longer than intended. this can easily be run without a grid, though some of the trap rooms might need a sketch to make them clear to the players. in this, unlike some modules, the inc...

Alien Breeds

Publisher: Zozer Games
Date Added: 04/20/2018 20:41:34
Alien Breeds The xenomorph is a well-known and terrifying monster. However, because of its fame, most players will be familiar with the creature and it's capabilities and few weaknesse. Alien Breed gives a GM lots of variations on the xenomorph and will remind players why they are scared of the dark.

Honey Heist
by John H.
Publisher: Rowan, Rook & Decard
Date Added: 04/20/2018 16:28:06
Honey Heist We were given a copy of this game to play at PAX when we had too many players for the Indie RPG Showcase. I was the Game Master, and our crew was ready to perform the heist within minutes of sitting at a table. Rolling up characters only took a minute or two, as the game's rule system was very simple. A few randomly determined character traits, two attributes and maybe a total of 6 die rolls for the GM to set the scene. If you're going to play this game, it helps a lot to have a player, or players who can carry play forward, as there is not much structure and it's very freeform. After waiting a few minutes for me to sketch out the location for Honeycon, the players stared at each other blankly until one person took the initiative and kicked things off. After that, we rolled on for almost three hours, laughing at the ridiculous things we were all up to. Fiasco comes to mind a bit, as our crew barely made it to the end through all kinds of mischief. The atmosphere of the game de...

Hinterland: a Guide to the Wilds
by Storn C.
Publisher: Roan Studio
Date Added: 04/20/2018 15:11:13
Hinterland: a Guide to the Wilds I love this product. Randy's maps are so evocative. Noticing his maps over on a fantasy google plus group, that led me to Jaunt: Hinterlands: a Guide to the Wilds. I was looking for a northern clime setting for a six-gun and sorcery setting. This fit the bill to a tee. Great artwork is studded throughout the pdf. Some really great flavor for a fairly unique setting. One illustration was used immediately as in the backstory of the characters, they were caught in a blizzard as kids. A great cutaway illustration by Randy of a snow shelter was perfect and the player who had a young builder/smith prodigy exclaimed "I built that!", cementing such great flavor in the game. Can't recommend enough. ...

Ironsworn
by Anna P.
Publisher: Shawn Tomkin
Date Added: 04/20/2018 15:00:51
Ironsworn Ironsworn has options for both solo and group play which I think is really cool. I've only tried playing solo one time, but it was both a fun time and helped teach me the rules in a way you don't always get from just reading through them. I think the quest mechanic is a great idea because it forces the players to consider why this task matters to their characters, and if it doesn't matter enough, to add more detail to the task so it truly turns into a quest, and it provides structure if you're playing solo or without a gm. The world of Ironsworn is also super interesting. It has a lot of details and a cool atmosphere, but there's also a lot of room for customization, and the book encourages the players to make stuff up and build the world together. Reading the book made me want to try playing it with other people....

DRAGONLOCK Miniatures: Skeletons Set 1
by kristopher s.
Publisher: Fat Dragon Games
Date Added: 04/20/2018 13:37:26
DRAGONLOCK Miniatures: Skeletons Set 1 5/5 I've been 3D printing for nearly two years and have tried a number of 3D models for miniatures. These rank as the best I've seen. - Four different models are included in this set. The hole in the spear-skeleton's head is noticeable, and it's a fun addition - I've reviewed the sculpts in Cura and Simplify3D and have found no gaps or areas that should cause printing issues for FDM printers - The included starting settings are very close to my findings after experimenting with printing other minis with both 0.4mm and 0.2mm nozzles. Their instruction to not include z-hop helped with stringing issues I was having - All Fat Dragon Games/Dragonlock models are designed to print without supports. I appreciate not using extra material and not having to worry about cleaning up supports - Fat Dragon Games' community. FDG has a great message board with a lot of retained knowledge about all their products. Members are active (typically I see responses within 48 hours) but it's not over...

Top Secret / New World Order
by Marcus B.
Publisher: TSR, Inc.
Date Added: 04/20/2018 13:28:12
Top Secret / New World Order I am a backer of the original KS and should have known. As soon as they said they did not want to share the PDF early with their backers so everyone could experience the "new gamebox" feeling unspoiled all my alarm bells should have gone off. Pretty much all of the problems with the game are very obvious on first read through and would have been found and commented on by backers if they would have had early access. That would not have been a guarantee they would have changed anything but at least they would have tried. As other reviews have already said, the dice system is a bit of a mess with 3 ways of adjusting for difficulty and absolutely no guidance whatsoever on when to use what. The dice system has almost some narrative feel to it with the assembly of the dice pool from various sources and is not all bad. At other times though it is too precise. A choice example: To land safely with a parachute requires 6 separate rolls. Each step can fail and will result in you either gettin...

DCC RPG Free RPG Day 2016
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Goodman Games
Date Added: 04/20/2018 07:46:09
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...
