Eclipse Phase: After the Fall

Eclipse Phase: After the Fall First off; this is quality sci-fi writing served up in easily read chunks. It's a great read anytime, but I found it fit quite nicely into a morning commute. It's a great look into the world of Eclipse Phase; and provides some view points that have been missing from the rule books. It's also a nice bit of kit to have in your GM tool box, as it provides succinct explenations for for some of the more difficult to grasp elements of the setting. Such as the mesh, and ego & morph. All right at the front of the book. Fully recommend picking it up, and lending it to your new players....

Carnival of Lost Souls
by Flames R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Monolith Graphics
Date Added: 02/04/2016 19:56:39
Carnival of Lost Souls Harlequin’s Lament is a gorgeous gothic song, a blend of repetitious chords with a rich-sounding overlay of a grand piano and harmonized vocals in the background. This piece, while not necessarily “circus-like,” shows off the musicianship of Nox Arcana. Next, strategically placed after the melody, is Calliope; children’s laughter echoes in the background of this brooding, circular tune. Madame Endora follows you around and predicts your future, leading you into the Hall of Mirrors. Even though you run away, you may find yourself Lost in the Darkness. One of the difficulties with creating a set in a “Circus Diabolique” is that, if not done properly, a haunted carnival can sound campy or lack general appeal. That is definitely not the case here. Of all the Nox Arcana collections, there is a wide variety of music offered on this set, some of which echoes their other work. For example, fans of the Necronomicon collection might find Nightmare Parade and Circus Diabolique appealing. Other...

Writing Monsters: How to Craft Believably Terrifying Creatures

Writing Monsters: How to Craft Believably Terrifying Creatures Being a fan of H.P. Lovecraft’s works myself, this book was off to a good start as the forward was written by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society. “While Mr. Athans draws from an extremely impressive array of monstrous sources, we are, of course, particularly delighted to see the works of H.P. Lovecraft cited so frequently and so appropriately in this discussion. Lovecraft was indeed, as Athans states, a master of the monster.” With such a good start, I was ready to dive in, head first. The introduction goes into some thoughts on “Realism vs. Plausibility” and the responsibilities that come with writing monsters. Philip makes a good case and ends it with “Artist Francisco de Goya wrote, “Fantasy, abandoned by reason, produces impossible monsters; united with it, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels.” This is the genre author’s primary responsibility. If you’ve asked readers to sign on to your fantasy or science fiction assumptions, you have the responsibility...

Swords of Kos: Necropolis

Swords of Kos: Necropolis Love the art, love the subject matter. Greek mythology has always fascinated me and Michael writes with such authority and detail I almost forgot I was reading a work of fiction. The locations involved are so accurately described, it would be easy for any GM to recreate the setting for their own adventures. Great stuff!

Blood In, Blood Out (Vampire: The Requiem Novel #2)
by Charles S.

Blood In, Blood Out (Vampire: The Requiem Novel #2) Sometimes authors give writing a great story everything they got. Sometimes that takes a backseat to an agenda. I think the writer is talented and I think the story had potential but I can’t get through it. I’m just not interested in the characters. I think the author was probably guided to force diversity into the story and it just did not work. I don’t mean racial diversity BTW, I mean cultural diversity. We’re talking ghettos, gangsters, and Carthians here. The characters don’t hold my interest and half way through the book, I just give up. I make no apologies for not being genuinely interested in the story. That’s not a choice, it’s a reality. The first book in the series was great. Rather than take the first book further, this story tries to take the setting in a new direction … without me....

Eclipse Phase: After the Fall

Eclipse Phase: After the Fall A short story collection set in the Eclipse Phase universe. In keeping with the setting of the RPG, the stories tend towards horror and the grimdark. Fair warning up front - several of the stories have already appeared as flavor in the Eclipse Phase sourcebooks and corebook, but two thirds of the stories are new, and one of the older stories has been finished with the part appearing in a future sourcebook. The writing is generally excellent, but people new to the setting may have a bit of trouble with some of the slang, in-game terminology ported over to the fiction, and the fairly large amount of nonhuman protagonists and characters. The book contains a very helpful 'What is transhumanity?' primer for those unfamiliar with the ideas of the genre. Overall, some very solid reads, and recommended....

Sete-Ka's Dream Quest

Sete-Ka's Dream Quest Excellent book and worth the price. You can read many stories by taking different paths through your choices. Well worth the discounted price. I cheated by reading the endings of several stories, Ste-Ka's choices (actually yours) lead to different ends, all have some satisfaction, but a couple are wonderful ends to his story. Choose wisely young prince.

Clan Novel Saga, Volume 2: The Eye of Gehenna (Novel) This PDF book is in an Image format and thus impossible to get on to Kindle as it can't be sent by email as the file is so massive. Instead of being about 3MB its 100MB in size. Please resize it to something sensible. It can't be that hard for who ever has the original?

Eclipse Phase: After the Fall

Eclipse Phase: After the Fall A collection of short stories that ring true to the Eclipse Phase RPG setting - I really liked it! Favourite story is 'Prix Fixe', but really they're all pretty good (even re-reading the ones that were existing chapter-opening fiction was a nice reminder of why I love this setting). Some of the stories include things for which there are no rules in the RPG; if you're going to get annoyed by that stuff I still say buy it and just skip those :P

Shadowrun: Wolf & Buffalo I really liked this story, even though it was a bit short. It was a good intro story for novice-level runners, and can be the start of good ideas for players and GMs. And I was especially thankful that one of these Shadowrun fiction zip files FINALLY included a PDF version, so that those of us who can't use .mobi or .epub files can purchase and enjoy! I have so many others on my wish list, just waiting for the day they include a PDF version... Hint, hint!

Shadowrun: DocWagon 19 Very enjoyable read. It gave me some great ideas for running a campaign based on a DocWagon HRT.

Lost in Dream (Fiction)

Publisher: Rite Publishing
Date Added: 12/18/2015 02:45:03
Lost in Dream (Fiction) An Endzeitgeist.com review I'm going to deviate a bit from my usual standard here, since Lost in Dream is a fiction book - at 273 pages, 1 page front cover, 3 pages of editorial 1 page ToC, 1 page author bio, 1 page back cover, this one leaves 266 pages of content, so what do we get here? Before I dive in: This review was moved up my review-queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. This being a fiction review, I am going to deviate in one crucial point from my usual shtick as a reviewer - I will not tell you explicitly what the story is about. Instead, I will try to give you a general idea and analyze the respective characters and plot according to my skills. Lost in Dream, first and foremost, is a novel set in the Dreamlands also shared by the legendary Coliseum Morpheuon; and yes, I purposefully evoked the Dreamlands here, not the Plane of Dreams - this is, very much in its tone and originality, a novel seeking to evoke the sheer wonder and grotesquery...

Time Travel Dinosaur What an enjoyable book! It took me back to my days of reading the Choose Your Own Adventure books for hours. I really like the writing style and the book is funny as well as fun. I was surprised in how many different directions the story split into and in a true time-travel, "you can meet yourself from different times" form, you get to cross some of the other madcap adventures in the book that I thought had nothing to do with the main story. Lots of cool references to other time travelers and pop culture through-out. Well worth it! Now to get the other books. Or maybe a future me went back in time, bought the books already and they are waiting in my downloads. :)...

Shadowrun: Hell on Water Totally disagree with the previous review. There was little time to expand on all of the characters as the action was expansive. I loved the way the book was written, more episodic than linear. It made me want to spend more time in Africa (as a character)
