The recipes in this book are a lot of fun, even though I haven't had a chance to make more than one of them yet. I really look forward to making more. Also, there was a surprising amount of flavor text that helped me understand a few of the traditions a little bit more, which was an unexpected treat.
If you like game themed cookbooks, this one is for you!
Kind Blade and Cruel Divinities is a stand-alone novel set in the Ponyfinder campaign world. A self-contained story, albeit with a potential continuation teased at the end, it tells the tale of a young human male training to become an adventurer in a nation of ponies. Unsurprisingly, adventure ends up finding him.
Before going any further, I need to make a disclaimer: I’m a supporter of the author’s Patreon, as well as having ghost-written a small portion of one of the Ponyfinder sourcebooks. I’ve also used some Ponyfinder material in the course of my own creative writing. All that, plus I consider the author to be a friend of mine. So take this review with whatever grain of salt you feel is appropriate.
With regards to the technical aspects of this book, it’s available in three formats; my review is focused around the PDF format only. In that regard, the book is one hundred seventy pages long (which makes the listing for one hundred thirty rather odd), and doesn’t seem to have t...
I can't believe I've never read anything like this before. An adventuring party with some free time goes to dinner. What would they talk about? What would they eat? This was funny as it was informative. Reading about this dinner party made them seem very real. The author did a great job with this story and I look forward to reading more by him.
I just picked this up as part of a post-christmas mass-purchase treat for myself. It is an exceptional worldbuilding supplement, dealing less with the crunch and more with the thought processes of world building. I've been doing this for a while, and I knew quite a bit of what is in here already, but it's great to see those practices layed out by experienced designers in an easy to digest way.
A great campaign setting for fans of Mystara and Spelljammer and for anyone else too. Flying ships are the focus of the setting, but there is much more. Planets and moons, dragons and dragon knights, wilderlands really wilds, diverse human and not human cultures, very nasty humanoids, mortals earning immortality. Game designer Bruce Heard used well his past experiences to create an original and interesting setting. Highly recommended!
This audio drama is a great window into the world of Pugmire. The production values are superb for the cost of the item. The character of Darcy cat was compelling and the story should inspire others to new adventures in the world of Pugmire.

This was a fun little Shadowrun short story. I love the Halloweeners and the author did a good job giving them more personality than they usually enjoy in Shadowrun lore. The setting was very well described throughout the story. The rundown neighborhoods where the Halloweeners and the First Nation gangs have their turf wars really spring to 'life'. Street-slang is in full use in this short story, and it really brings that Shadowrun ambience to the story. The story is a fun, entertaining read.
The story revolves around Yuri, a former Russian army man, and his somewhat more mysterious girlfriend, Soren. Yuri is given the right mix of mystery and detail for his backstory, but I wish Soren was developed a bit more.
There's a bit of adult content in the story, which honestly felt a little bit out of place for me.
As a Shadowrun GM this story greased my hamster wheel for how I could better integrate gangs into my Shadowrun adventures other than offering them up as easy targe...
I haven't read fiction in ~15 years. I randomly grabed this book. It was quite good. A quick, easy read, not something that looks like a thesaurus threw-up on the page. Obviously a 'character introduction' type piece. I look forward to more.
