Tumult: Wayfarings of Sabit: Four
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Incarnadine Press

Tumult: Wayfarings of Sabit: Four Michael's stories are usually fairly stand alone, but with this you'll probably want to read Broken Justice first. Michael ventures into ghost story territory, and does so surprisingly well. Less about action, this story takes the reader into the past of the main characters and explores their personality and secrets.

Club Anyone: An Interface Zero Novel sorry for the crazy formatting near thr end of the review im on my phone and cant fix it at the moment i picked this up because it appeared to fall squarely within the genres i enjoy, and i'm familiar with some of the author's other work (for TTRPGs). holy crap am i glad i did! here's my brief breakdown as to why: 1) pacing: great pacing. it starts off ordinary enough, if "ordinary" includes the protagonist arriving on mars to aid in a corporate AI issue and finding out his wife wants a divorce, and from there it gets faster and faster until finally the ride slows down and deposits you at the exit, where you find yourself almost screaming "AGAIN! AGAIN!" 2) tension: the author uses tension throughout the book, both at the end of chapters and at the end of key sections to mercilessly drive you forward to the next page, and the next, and the next, until it's 5 am and you're hearing birds announcing that it's time for you to get your ass into the shower and off to work. 3) charact...

Isle of the Wicked: Wayfarings of Sabit: Two
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Incarnadine Press
Date Added: 08/04/2017 04:16:48
Isle of the Wicked: Wayfarings of Sabit: Two Another masterful story about Sabit from Michael S. Miller. As usual, the setting is a Bronze Age land of dark magic, and it is conveyed simply yet effectively. Making the world feel real, and emergning the read in it, is always one of the strength in the Sabit stories. This time Sabit and her companion are stranded on an island, and get drawn into an age old conflicts. The story is much more suspenseful that previous entries; the changing perspectives keeps the reader guessing about what is really going on, and how things will end. ...

The Barest Branch
by Luke S.
Publisher: Gonzo History Project
Date Added: 07/27/2017 03:52:54
The Barest Branch James Holloway draws on an extensive knowledge of both history and Yogsothothery to craft a tale of alienation and monstrous revelation set amid as bleak and miserable a coast as Lovecraft ever penned. Having read quite a lot of post-Lovecraftian fiction, I'm definitely coming around to the opinion that the best of the bunch is that in which the author makes a new fist of the themes rather than aping the man himself, and despite some clear and openly owned parallels to 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth', Holloway's use of a historical setting and historical characters - although he writes in profane modern vernacular, the opinions of the narrator and his fellow Vikings are grounded in the sensibilities of a more personally violent age - set him apart from Lovecraft's primarily contemporary milieu, without sacrificing the crucial sense of helplessness before the cosmic that other 'muscular mythos' writers often eschew. If I have a criticism, it's that the more overtly Lovecraftian final act...

KOBOLD Guide to Gamemastering

Publisher: Kobold Press
Date Added: 07/25/2017 15:43:06
KOBOLD Guide to Gamemastering This KOBOLD GUIDE was the first in the series that I had ever read, and I had high expectations. One interesting detail I noted right away is that famed DM Matt Mercer is clearly the inspiration for the cover, but he doesn't have an essay featured within. Not a big deal, but funny nonetheless. The book is sorted into different sections, grouped into themes such as Before the Game, During the Game, etc. Each section contained a handful of essays written by a variety of GMs, with quite a broad range of experience and expertise. Some of them are very storied personalities, involved in very key games, developments, or events. Others are... well, just people with a bit of web presence or relatively minor impact. Not that someone's advice should be judged solely on their previous work, but I feel it should at least be mentioned that not every author will necessarily come off as an authority. To give a bit of context, I've been DM-ing weekly for about 15 years, now, with a variety o...

Blossom of Ruin: Wayfarings of Sabit: One
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Incarnadine Press
Date Added: 07/25/2017 00:49:46
Blossom of Ruin: Wayfarings of Sabit: One A Sword and Sorcery story set in a world of sand and violence. A exceptionally well written short, it follows Sabit, a spear fighter, and how the vile evil that tries to destroy her has unsuspected connections to her past. Standing up to evil, as sometimes the easiest part. While the characters in this story live simple lives of life, death and vengeance, this story has plenty of depth, especially about right and wrong when you live by the sword.

The Mercy We Make

Publisher: Incarnadine Press
Date Added: 07/23/2017 12:20:51
The Mercy We Make For a short story, this one is as rich and engaging as a story twice its length. Paced perfectly, it lets the reader tag along on a journey of exploration, obligation and retribution. A proper short story, it is self contained, while it also offers glimpses of a larger world. Having read nothing by the author of setting before, is no impediment for enjoying this excellent story. While the story is full of dangers and treacheries, it is told in a clear and paced tone. It isn't exaggerated, but gives the straight-forward descriptions, placing the reader squarely in the shoes of the protagonist....

Falling Stars - Adventure: Into the Long Dark Night

Publisher: Lock 'n Load Publishing
Date Added: 07/23/2017 06:03:46
Falling Stars - Adventure: Into the Long Dark Night I purchased Falling Stars the Core rule book, based on the high quality of Lock n Load publishings games. It was a little sparse on background info so I purchased this adventure, expecting it to provide possibly a little more background. It turns out it is merely an adventure, written to appeal to the totally novice role player, with hardly any useful info for the Falling Stars setting. If it had been $5, I would not have been critical. Their needs to be a disclaimer that this is a product for totally novice players and is designed for them, and not something a seasoned gamer need bother with....

Chronicles of the Demon Lord

Publisher: Schwalb Entertainment
Date Added: 06/02/2017 15:29:51
Chronicles of the Demon Lord 5 stories and a very quick read. I was done before I knew it. Would be better priced at a around $1.99 - $2.99 as it takes only about an hour or so to complete the entire book. The writing, while not out of this world, is very solid and each author brings their own take to the world of Urth (The official setting for "Shadow of the Demon Lord"). If I had to rank the stories I'd say that the first was my favorite. Mainly because it was evocative and portrayed a situation and characters that might easily be converted into an adventure for the game. it wa quite well done and a very enjoyable (if brief) read! Each of the other stories are right up there as well, they just didn't strike me the way the first did. I was looking to gain a general "feel" for the world of Urth by picking these stories up, and I think that they helped in that endeavor. If you're looking for an hour or so worh of enjoyable jaunts into the world of Urth then I might pick this up. But it's most certainly not o...

Adventures in The Construction Paper Kingdom Presents "Book III Prince Alexander & The City of Nightmares"

Publisher: High Adventure Publishing
Date Added: 06/02/2017 08:17:20
Adventures in The Construction Paper Kingdom Presents "Book III Prince Alexander & The City of Nightmares" This is the third CPK book I've purchased. I read the first two immediately after their release, and they were real gems. So I was excited to see a third release, and it has not disappointed. Just like the first two, Book III is a really creative adventure that is perfect for stoking the minds of young readers, with a real knack for hooking us adults as well! Ryan Ross seems to have a real knack for weaving valuable lessons about integrity and courage into fantasy tales that take readers to places ripe with mythical beings, danger, and of course, young heroes! Love the unique style to the artwork, love the storylines and themes, and STRONGLY recommend this to anyone looking to share unique adventure stories with the young people in their life....

W20 The Song of Unmaking

Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 05/30/2017 22:26:06
W20 The Song of Unmaking I seriously did not want to put this book down. It has a quality similar to the tribe novels, albiet in a more compact form. Shorter isn't a bad thing though, as the auther paced the story progression well. The dynamics that made the novels based on Werewolf the Apocalypse so enjoyable to me are all there in sufficient details without dragging out and slowing down. The interplay of werewolf society, mysticism, and the raw power. All of it is there. More importantly, the author displayed their creativity and skill in telling the story. I had my guesses as to how the story would end and what the final events would be, but when it happened I was suprised. Yet at the same time I thought to myself, "Of course, that makes perfect sense." It was a very satisfying conclusion to a very satisfying book....
