KOBOLD Guide to Combat
by Damon D.
Publisher: Kobold Press
Date Added: 12/09/2014 06:17:19
KOBOLD Guide to Combat While by no means a bad book, the Kobold Guide to Combat is far from the series' best. Overall, it feels like the publishers were hard pressed for content. Many of the articles, while interesting in their own right, are either too broad or limited in scope, or are only tenuously relevant to fantasy role playing games. Having read most of the articles, and having skimmed the rest, I don't get the impression that the subject of combat justified the length, if the seemingly hodgepodge collection of articles is any indication. If you are a long time fan of the Kobold Guides, you can do a lot worse than picking this one up, but if you've never picked up a book from this series, I'd highly suggest checking out the Kobold Guide to Game Design, or the Kobold Guide to World Building, first or skip this one altogether....

NaNo Calendar
by Stephen J.
Publisher: Chaotic Shiny Productions
Date Added: 12/04/2014 18:28:03
NaNo Calendar First, this is an executable computer file named "NaNo_Calendar.exe". I downloaded it, scanned it with McAfee, got a clean bill of health, and ran it on my Win7 64b desktop PC. It does exactly what the description says, which is why I gave it five stars. It does not have, nor need an installer; you just execute the program as-is and it runs. It does not appear to have any dependencies, such as a run-time DLL. It's pretty tiny at just 44,032 Bytes. Specifically, you only have three (3) total controls, unless you count minimize and close. You can set the number of words in your word goal, the default is 50,000. You can check a box and have the widget "stay on top" of your desktop. You can set any of the following systems: 1) "equal every day" - word goal divided equally for each day of the current month 2) "equal no weekends" - word goal divided equally for each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of the current month 3) "equal weekend only" - word goal divided equa...

On a Black Tide
by Tim R.
Publisher: Privateer Press
Date Added: 11/28/2014 15:22:16
On a Black Tide Anyone who can read a description of a publication and then be shocked that the publication is indeed as described needs to get their heads examined. Pirates, murderous gangs, trials by combat, etc should clue you in. If these topics make you cringe then don't read the story. On a Black Tide is well written and definitely deserves a read if you like tales of the darker side of life. Not everyone is born behind a white picket fence and the stories of those people should be told as well. Highly recommend....

Calidar, In Stranger Skies

Publisher: Calidar Publishing

Calidar, In Stranger Skies Calidar is a beautifully produced book from both a content and a presentation standpoint. It is truly a unique and original book, which is a rarity among so many products that are really just recycled material. It is well worth the price of admission.

The Mythos Society Guide to New England
by Rick N.
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
Date Added: 11/24/2014 13:54:08
The Mythos Society Guide to New England I love this book. The writing is good, the ideas are fun, but one of the coolest things about it is the depth of the research behind it. Real history provides so much weirdness and hints at both horror and adventure, and this book gathers that all up with glee. Of course, not everything you read in the book actually happened - it's a Lovecraftian game supplement, after all - but probably a lot more than you expect is true, if expanded on to suit the purpose of the book. If you like well-researched history retasked for horror gaming, you're gonna love this....

Calidar, In Stranger Skies

Publisher: Calidar Publishing
Date Added: 11/23/2014 14:19:18
Calidar, In Stranger Skies Bruce Heard, one of the minds behind the original D&D world of Mystara is brings us back to the good old days with his brand new fantasy world Calidar. In Dragon Magazine, and a later boxed set for D&D, Bruce wrote about the adventures of the wondrous skyship Princess Ark, and used it to describe new lands rich for adventure. In "In Stranger Skies", the skyship The Star Phoenix picks up the torch, being sucked into Calidar's universe to explore the adventures of this curious world, its inhabited moons and sister planets. The first part of the book is a work of fiction, describing the first part of the journey of The Star Phoenix and its crew. It is a very compelling introduction to the setting, reading as the first few chapters of a novel I'm aching for the rest of. The second part of the book is an outline of the Calidar setting, zooming in from an overview of the Solar system called the Soltan Ephemeris, to a closer look at the World of Calidar, an even closer look at the area...

Demon: Interface
by Michael B.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 11/19/2014 06:48:37
Demon: Interface Interface has some wonderful pieces, but you'll have to endure a few mediocre ones before you reach them. Each comes with a few pieces of Crunch connected in one way or another to the story. Interface's main flaw is that without intimate knowledge of the Demon the Descent game, most of the stories are incomprehensible. Identities swap, overlap and over-wright one another in a way that can be confusing even if you know how Demons can take and drop cover, but may be completely surrealistic to people who are not in the know. A short synopsis of the stories and my opinion on each: The Principal - A demon in cover as a suburban wife faces an angelic threat. I didn't really like this one. It has some good scenes of paranoia superimposed on pastoral suburbia. And an interesting example of cover erosion. But the twist is one of those you can never see coming, and it's not really worth the obfuscation. Long Road to Caanan - Integration and temptation set against the gay-beats scene ...

Penny Dreadful
by Michael B.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 11/17/2014 07:44:58
Penny Dreadful Penny Dreadful is an irreverent and untamed adventure that uses the gloomy and serious game-world to great comedic effect. The book crosses over with several of the World of Darkness lines, but while knowledge of them might clear a few things, I don't think it is necessary. Even knowledge of Mage the Ascension isn't all that critical, since Penny makes a point of explaining her magic to herself and others. As the humor goes, Dreadful is very reliant on references. But these are delivered through the first person account of Penny herself, who uses 90's pop-culture, Victorian goth and medieval occult together to cast her magic as well as make sense of the world around her. And it works. These references are all over the place and Sailor Moon is just as prominent as the Malleus Maleficarum and familiarity with either is not essential, but contributes to the hilarity. Symbolism is the name of the game and Penny's habit of substituting Bastet, the cat goddess of ancient Egypt for Hello Ki...

Lovecraft Country I really enjoyed Lovecraft Country. It captured the Lovecraftian Horror without the use of monsters like so many similar comics do. I eagerly await the next issue.

The Mythos Society Guide to New England

Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing

The Mythos Society Guide to New England I have been a fan of Lovecraft for a long time and this book provides a wealth of well researched knowledge for both gamers and non-gamers alike. The ties to Lovecraft and the Mythos aside, this book stands on its own merit as a reference for the interesting interesting and atmospheric settings of New England. Mr. Staples attention to detail and feel for the genre are apparent even at first glance. Well written and engaging source material like this is hard to find and even harder yet for a genre like horror. A good investment at an extremely reasonable price. Highly recommended....

Calidar, In Stranger Skies
by Brian D.
Publisher: Calidar Publishing
Date Added: 11/06/2014 21:33:11
Calidar, In Stranger Skies Bruce Heard knows what you want, and he gave it to you. Calidar picks up thematically where the Princess Ark story left off and goes in a whole new direction while keeping the spirit of the original series from his former employer. From a game standpoint, this setting is as full and vibrant as a setting could be "right out of the box." It only takes one read through the book to get a sense of where everyone is in relation to each other, and there are enough adventure hooks to keep creative DMs busy for a long time. With the help of Ed Greenwood, the world is brought alive through a novella and a gazetteer. The setting keeps most races "Familiar" to the average gamer with a few twists here and there to keep things interesting. There are some coy references to his previous work for those who are paying attention, but they aren't intrusive. While the book is a bit slim, it packs in a lot of detail in the space it does have. If successful, Mr. Heard has promised more, so please bu...

Littlest Lovecraft: The Dunwich Horror

Littlest Lovecraft: The Dunwich Horror This. Book. Is AMAZEBALLS. Everything about it - the story, the illustrations (brilliant, by the way), the cows, and the ridiculously fab "extras" we've gotten from the kickstarter. I honestly think there has been NOTHING else I've ever been so excited see news on. I happen to know that Eyo Bella, the illustrator is the ABSOLUTELY best of the best and what she pours into her work certainly shows. I am so thankful for Call of Cthulhu and The Dunwich Horror - and hope there are more to come. A real, true cow book, perhaps? :)...
