Judy of the Jungle: Murder Goes Native
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: NUELOW Games
Date Added: 07/13/2014 10:55:17
Judy of the Jungle: Murder Goes Native If you enjoy classic pulp tales set in the jungle where a white face is a rarity and most of the wildlife is hostile (except a few remarkably tame beasts) you are in for a treat, with several full stories reproduced, the comic strips in crisp greyscale, the text ones in less-well-scanned images (not OCRd). Tales of confusion between modern medicine and traditional ways, and even of a film-maker determined on setting wild animals against each other and never mind any human beings around... stuff that all would make excellent 1920s jungle adventures (does anyone run Justice Inc any more?) or provide additional colour to a plotline that takes the party into the jungle for another reason. There's also some notes based around a new ruleset that's in preparation, called 'd6xd6 Core'. This is being written by Lester Smith and is due out around December 2014 (this review being written in July 2014), and looks a slick rules-light fun-heavy system. Various characters from the Judy of the J...

Fey Wine ( Within the Ring of Fire )
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: RAW Immersive Games
Date Added: 07/12/2014 04:56:41
Fey Wine ( Within the Ring of Fire ) First off, I have had very few positive experiences with fantasy novels, so I was a bit sceptical when I heard there was going to be a novel to go along with "Within the Ring of Fire." But, even after reading "Saga Book" and the "77 Thrones: the Theological Codex" cover-to-cover several times over (and watching the WtRoF playtesting vids on YouTube), I still found myself overwhelmed by the vast level of detail and expansive cast of characters. This ain't no Tolkien, D&D, elves 'n' dwarves kids' stuff - there's nothing else like it, and it takes some effort to wrap your head around this outlandish new setting. What I needed was a nice, concrete example of how the elaborate world of K'Vega Thale works in practice. A "normal" game company might give us an adventure module for this purpose - but damned if Our Main Man would ever to stoop to such levels. What we got was "Fey Wine": Two intertwined adventures with protagonists from very different walks in life. It shows you ...

Fey Wine ( Within the Ring of Fire )
by Michael P.
Publisher: RAW Immersive Games
Date Added: 07/11/2014 10:50:56
Fey Wine ( Within the Ring of Fire ) 'Fey Wine' is a story of parallels, in which we follow two main heros, A-Ya Doon the last worshiper of Luk-Coo and Aeffinea of the Freyean and seeker of the song of Cinder. Both characters follow the call of their divinitys and their roads intersect and pass over each other several times in the story, but one can draw lines to the extraordinarily romantic A-Ya and the passion of Aeffinea in not only their quests for romance, but the dangers they face and the drive to achieve what they set out to do. The book also serves as not only an interesting character study, for while the main heros receive a bit more of the in depth look of character growth, one will find themselves attached to many of the supporting cast, laughing, rooting for, and maybe even having good reason to despise and pity them. You get a fully swing of interesting philosophy's, goals and drives, and a great look at the different mindsets of the different races. Speaking of the Races, this book is almost like a tou...

Pocket Things
by Harry K.
Publisher: As If Productions

Pocket Things This hit my funny spot. It might make for an excellent party game amongst drunk or possibly stoned gamers without ability to play anything complicated, although the scorekeeping system could prove problematic depending on the levels of impairment involved. Yes, a one-page game of silliness involving stuff pulled out of your pocket has a scoring system. I highly recommend this product for at least reading, even if it is never played.

Infinite Horizons Issue #2
by Mark G.
Publisher: Avalon Game Company
Date Added: 06/29/2014 07:28:17
Infinite Horizons Issue #2 I'm giving Infinite Horizons #2 ezine 4 stars. If I had bought it, I'd go 3 but you get a lot here for free. First off, the cover art is really cool and I'm loving the alien. Must scour it to see if there's any description given for it (or stats). I think the prestige classes are good, especially the Guardian who I'd select as sort of an elite guard or guard leader, seems a bit more of a non-player character but can be worked around. I liked the one-handed shot feat, the new gear (lots of weapons!). The paper model by Fantasy Cutouts was really neat and is based on a most interesting ship design. Might have to have a go. There's also an excerpt from JD Wallington's Temple Alliance Origins, Book I called A New Beginning. Very atmospheric first-person tale. Scott Virtes' Alien Flop short story I liked even more, mainly because I enjoy dialogue. There's others I haven't even read yet. Loved The Horror of Colony 6 and the art samples of Gordon Napier!...

Of Predators and Prey: The Hunters Hunted II Anthology
by Adrian S. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 06/22/2014 23:30:46
Of Predators and Prey: The Hunters Hunted II Anthology ‘Of Predators & Prey’ succeeds as gaming fiction, and in that alone it is a fine resource for players and Storytellers alike. Gaming fiction should provide practical examples of how people live and interact within a game world, should be internally consistent, and should provide ideas for character and chronicle design. The authors of this anthology deliver on all points, as well as providing a suite of fresh, engaging stories around what could have been a very ‘tried and true’ product. The stories all manage to offer something slightly different, but focus on the ‘everyman’ as either individuals or as groups. There are no super-powered action heroes, just regular folk who have glimpsed the reality of vampires and are simply trying to find an appropriate response. From folk who have turned their houses into fortresses that would make an AD&D DM envious, or a small organised force with some basic training and military hardware, or even a gang of children keen to save a school fri...

The Young Sherlock Holmes Adventures Trade
by Eddy W.
Publisher: AAM Markosia
Date Added: 06/15/2014 18:11:28
The Young Sherlock Holmes Adventures Trade A charming (if moderately inconsistent) reimagining of Sherlock Holmes. The trade is set in an alternative steampunk world, where Sherlock Holmes runs around with his friend James Moriarty (!). There are some new characters introduced as well, including a female Indian character who is sadly more of a stereotype than a compelling character in her own right. It's not remotely close to the original stories, but it's a fun adventure in its own right.

Book of Nod En los detalles de la compra dice color, pero todo el libro es en blanco y negro, yo compre la edicion de portada suave a "color", nunca habia visto el libro, es divertido e interesante aunque hubiera prescindido de el por el precio, en algunas partes es mas parecido a un fanzine que a un libro, las hojas son extremadamente delgadas, el tono de la tinta es negro grisaseo sin llegar a ser un negro intenso, la impresion que me toco corre a cargo de lighting source uk ltd.

The Gorgon's Mirror (issue 1)
by John G.
Publisher: Gorgon Press
Date Added: 06/05/2014 13:43:34
The Gorgon's Mirror (issue 1) 5 short stories from new authors who, from their own admission, you've probably never heard of. The stories are as diverse as you could imagine, touching on topics as varied as deep space travel, elves (elfs?) and a particularly interesting blob that lives on top of a telly. While not every story will blow you away, there's enough originality in it to be worth a look at such a low price.

Call to Battle
by Heinrich K.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 05/30/2014 19:26:34
Call to Battle Of the Werewolf: The Apocalypse related novels, this one is in my opinion the worst. The Mage: The Ascension elements of the story and the weird uniqueness of the protagonist spoil every other aspect of the writing. And while the book happens to have a story set in the World of Darkness, the plot doesn't revolve around Werewolf: The Apocalypse theme or acceptable character. So, for everyone who wants to read Werewolf: The Apocalypse, skip this one, ans aim for the tribe novels or some older Harper Collins licensed novels. Or stick with the anthologies that are on DriveThru.......

Delta Green: Tales from Failed Anatomies

Delta Green: Tales from Failed Anatomies Originally published at: http://diehardgamefan.com/2014/05/30/book-review-delta-green-
-tales-from-failed-anatomies-call-of-cthulhu/ Tales From Failed Anatomies is the second Kickstarter Arc Dream Publishing has done for their (Originally Pagan Publishing’s) Delta Green – a modern setting for Call of Cthulhu. The first Kickstarter, Through a Glass, Darkly raised $27,000 from 346 backers. The newest one saw 1,085 backers raised thirty thousand dollars. It also went so far beyond the original goal, that Arc Dream was able to fund a second book, entitled Extraordinary Renditions via the same Kickstarter! That’s pretty impressive. While Extraordinary Renditions will be an anthology by multiple authors, Tales From Failed Anatomies is a collection of (lucky) thirteen short stories by Delta Green Co-Creator Dennis Detwiller along book ended by two pieces from Robin D. Laws. I’ll admit I took part in the Kickstarter primarily to get playtester access to the new upcoming Delta Green RPG that a...

KOBOLD Guide to Magic
by Paolo P.
Publisher: Kobold Press
Date Added: 05/14/2014 10:09:01
KOBOLD Guide to Magic First premise: I'm almost halfway in reading this book. My intention was to review the book after reading it cover-to-cover but it's taking me too long and I want to give a quick review in the meantime to share my thoughts with other buyers. I'll come back after finishing the book to give my definitive rating about it. Second premise: I played a D&D Wizard character for 12 years, porting it from 2nd Ed. AD&D to 3.5 D&D as the campaing evolved. Magic is my dearest topic when it comes to gaming and as a GM I have a sweet spot for the argument, to the point that all of my efforts ever went in the direction of "bringing magic back into magic". This is not a trivial effort for an amateur like me, taking into account I'm probably not a good GM, nor a good game designer. But I had years to dissect the problem and I matured a polyedrical point of view. Maybe what follows won't apply to each and every reader, so please take into account I'm very demanding when it comes to magic in games. ...
