Deadlands Weird Wailin's Soundtrack The soundtrack is quite okay but compared to the intense atmosphere of Deadlands i consider it too boring. A mixture of western scores and horror scores will definitely do a better job.

Ephemeris
by Stephen Y.
Publisher: Nomadic Delirium Press
Date Added: 12/02/2016 08:09:52
Ephemeris At 332 pages, 297 are the content. When trying to get a review or rwo for Ephemeris; I found this one: https://youtu.be/NQS6mRd- kdzQ I do agree with most of what he says (Tetsubo57). Editing: font size ok. Perhaps saved 20-30 pages by condensing some of the example classes shown (possible.) Combat rounds are 10 seconds long. Weapons have a damage factor, which is multiplied by the difference between the attack and defence rolls. The Arbonix to me do seem somewhat wierd, with 2 rows of 'nipples' on their chest to 'float'. The system shouldn't be too hard to 'home rule' by GMs, if they wish to make changes for their campaign or scenario(s) they are running. If you prefer using D6 instead of D20 for OGl; Ephemeris should do pretty much ok. At £4.00/$4.99, it's serviceable....

Exalted: Tales From the Age of Sorrows
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing

Exalted: Tales From the Age of Sorrows I am VERY excited that these fiction anthologies are being made for all the game lines, so I am going to rate this one or two stars higher than I ordinarily would for stories and writing of this caliber. I want more things like this to be done. That being said, I sometimes feel like these authors just don't really 'get' the source material. Why are so many characters flinging around terms like, "He's a Dawn Caste Solar Exalted!"? That kind of thing is jarring, and it happens all the time here. 'Chosen of the Unconquered Sun' or 'Anathema' or something like that works a lot better. When I see "Dawn Caste Solar Exalted" it produces the same reaction in me as it would if R.A Salvatore were to introduce Drizzt by saying, "There he stood, a level 16 dark elf ranger". It's clunky, and game-term-y, and really shouldn't be used like that. In the future, I would like to see more stories that are essentially the novelization of a short adventure that a real group of players might go ...

Random Solo Adventure: Fantasy Dungeon

Random Solo Adventure: Fantasy Dungeon I found this game to be mildly entertaining but it got old pretty quick. * Pros: * The artwork I thought fit the genre very well * The author is descriptive * It can be played with just a d6 (I think that is nice when you don't have your polys with you) * Cons: * It gets monotonous * You die very quickly quite often * It seems like you are playing the same adventure over and over It may be just how the dice were rolling and I have not played this a lot so your experience may be different. I do not regret buying this as it was not expensive. I just think that overall it could be a lot better but it could be a lot worse....

Erciyes Fragments

Erciyes Fragments Good content but very much let down by a poor-quality scan: pages are quite difficult to read because of this, and a few miss out a little text on the left margin. As I think another reviewer implored, please re-scan this book.

The Very Hungry Cthulhupillar

The Very Hungry Cthulhupillar I li-la-love it. Grew up with the very hungry Caterpillar and I think, this adaptation is quite heartwarming, funny and creative. But it really is no children's book - not because it's too scary in itself but because I think to really enjoy - and understand - this little book of awesomeness, you have to know your Cthulhu-Lore.

Truth Until Paradox Revised
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 11/12/2016 20:52:49
Truth Until Paradox Revised I very much enjoyed the short stories in this book. Each story, written by different authors, tells the tale of a mage in 1990's era San Fransisco in the Old World of Darkness. The stories include representatives of the Celestial Chorus, the Akashic Brotherhood, the Dreamspeakers, the Hollow Ones, the Men In Black, the Nephandi, and the Progenitors. It covers issues with paradox, struggles with spiritual truths, suffering Quiet, contemplating the consequences of magick gone wrong, and conflicts between mages of different factions. Some of the stories were dark and painful, others were hopeful or uplifting, and some just barely seemed to break even on that score, but they were all fun to read. Note: If you have read the book *Penny Dreadful*, you will find that she also appears in this book, and her short story, here, occurs shortly before the events in that book....

Book of Nod
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 11/03/2016 15:57:25
Book of Nod Ostensibly a book for flavour and background fluff, the Book of Nod starts out strong, with a biblical tone and cadence to it, even including footnotes from the scholars that "researched" it; but ultimately suffers from a hideous mish-mash of artwork, as well as a lack of direction in some parts. The "words of Antediluvians" section seem especially ill-fitting and could have easily been replaced with a "proverbs" style section, like that which the superior Dark Ages book "The Erciyes Fragments" had. "Erciyes Fragments" also benefited from having a single illustrator, which felt more appropriate for a psuedo-religious text. This is actually the third copy I've ever owned, the first two being the hard and softcover versions of the original White Wolf prints. I was disappointed that the leatherette cover which made the original Book of Nod so distinctive was left off this copy, as well as the formerly brilliant silver lettering on the cover and spine. The fact that the cover is a *phot...

Android: Free Fall
by Matthew H.
Publisher: Fantasy Flight Games
Date Added: 10/27/2016 10:51:43
Android: Free Fall This is an excellent example of semi-military sci-fi set in the Android universe. I really enjoyed this book as my first entry into the ficiton of the setting. This book tackles the investigative possibilities of the near future sci-fi with careful thought. It also explores many of the core areas of investigation that the Android universe puts forth, including both bioroids and clones as possible people, or not.

Book of Nod
by Brian P.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 10/26/2016 22:17:57
Book of Nod One of the reasons I prefer Vampire: the Masquerade to Vampire: The Requiem is the mythology. Millenarianism is pretty passé now, and I bet for a lot of people the word would make them think of another damn thinkpiece about how Millenials are ruining everything their parents built--though come to think of it, that's actually pretty apropos for Cainite history--but it was in the air in the 90s, whether religious or secular. The Book of Nod, with its tales of ancient past drawing directly from Biblical myth and its warnings of Gehenna, drew on that zeitgeist in exactly the way necessary to reach directly into my brain and poke the parts that wanted his RPGs to be infused with profound meaning, before I had even heard the words "trenchcoats and katanas." This is the first totally fluff book I ever bought for any RPG, and the only totally fluff book I've actually gotten some use out of. The longest-running Vampire character I played was a Noddist who quoted extensively from the Chronicl...

Army of Darkness Corebook
by Thomas B. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Eden Studios
Date Added: 10/18/2016 05:50:02
Army of Darkness Corebook Thoughts: * The biggest problem the book has is that it's shackled to Army of Darkness. It strains to convince you that playing the Blacksmith would really be fun. Well, the bench just isn't as deep in this setting as it is in Buffy or Angel. The true highlights are the other time periods, the archetypes (and what they mean for a potential game), * The Mass Combat rules may not sound like much, but I have used the Savage Worlds version of them quite a bit, and adapted the Army of Darkness rules into D&D5e to good effect. The core conceit behind these rules are my favorite mass combat rules of all time, and my players actually get excited when they realize I'm wheeling them out. I actually like these rules better than the Savage Worlds version because the Savage Worlds rules have a Knowledge (Battle) prerequisite that almost none of my players ever take, while the AoD rules are based on Intelligence and Influence. * The production values on licensed Eden Studios books were always on ...
