Bug Hunts: Surviving and Combating the Alien Menace
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Osprey Publishing
Date Added: 08/20/2016 03:15:57
Bug Hunts: Surviving and Combating the Alien Menace If you've ever read the *Colonial Marine Technical Manual* you'll have a pretty good idea what to expect from this book. Although *Bug Hunts: Surviving and Combating the Alien Menace* clearly has a more general focus. Its 81 pages the first 45 of which are devoted to indepth studies of three bug species, a xeno-parasite, an arachnid type and a crab-like species, followed by a briefer look at six other species. The next 4 pages provide a timeline of the more infamous infestations. The last 30 pages are devoted to an in depth look at the forces and organisations whose task it is to deal with bug infestations, their organisation, equipment and some of the more well known personnel. The book provides setting or backrground material only, there are no rules of any sort in this book. As a resource it is very useful and adaptable to pretty much any rules system you could think of. I'm a wargamer and roleplayer with a distinct preference for Sci-fi and I love it. The aliens are similar to,...

Wendigo Tales: The Last Parsec: A Clear Understanding of Honor
by Peter C.
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
Date Added: 08/17/2016 08:20:43
Wendigo Tales: The Last Parsec: A Clear Understanding of Honor If I wanted to gain an idea of what The Last Parsec setting was all about from reading this short story I would conclude that this was Pinancle's attempt to do a bad Star Trek rip off and I would probably avoid TLP like the plague.. TLP is not a Star Trek clone although I suppose if you really want it to be it couold work like that. It needs to be its own setting though and this story does not help.

A Day Dark as Night (Exalted 1)
by Ismael A.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 08/13/2016 00:34:04
A Day Dark as Night (Exalted 1) This story is an evolution of Exalted stories. Written after, perhaps instead of the previous three volumes, it does a better job of presenting the setting and characters. It uses iconic characters to a better degree, and seems to be more confident in the space that it explores. Perhaps that is merely thanks to the familiarity that the authors (and audience) were able to develop with the setting. That this book is free makes it an excellent entry point to the setting, and the writing is excellent. This is a fun romp in the Exalted setting, and it reads smoothly while giving you a wonderful snapshot of Creation. 5 stars....

Amethyst - Aiden's Way (Novel)
by Stirling N.
Publisher: Dias Ex Machina Games
Date Added: 08/11/2016 09:47:51
Amethyst - Aiden's Way (Novel) The prose in this novel is, to be frank, not very good. The diction is flowery and intelligent, but it comes across as someone trying really hard to sound like they're a good writer but the actual prose is basically fanfiction level. It does not flow at all, and has tons of short abrupt sentances. Like someone who wrote for teens trying to write more heady stuff. It just doesn't work for me.

Making of Exalted, The (Artbook)
by Ismael A.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 08/08/2016 00:30:47
Making of Exalted, The (Artbook) Though I never was able to get my hands on the original Exalted special hardback, this art book was always a very fascinating look into the genesis of the original Exalted setting and system. There is a lot of insight, some rough and early sketch art that eventually inspired a lot of the thematic feel of Exalted, and of course commentary that helps explain it all. If you want to understand the history of Exalted as a developed role playing game, you must buy this book. For this price, you'd be crazy not to....

Spicy Wrestling Tales #1
by Edgar S.
Publisher: Amazon Comics Group
Date Added: 07/22/2016 15:29:45
Spicy Wrestling Tales #1 Firstly, Reby (the blonde) is GORGEOUS. I love the title "Spicy Wrestling Tales", makes me thing of Spicy City and I'd say that's where you are here. There's such a wonderful vintage feel to the writing and the images, a real homage and throwback to vintage elements, even the images are in a glorious tone of faded black and white. With the girls depicted in the illustrations wearing gorgeous outfits (and hair, might I add!) as they battle it out in the ring. And the writing itself in this illustrated story follows every tone of the images in a healthy synergy. - One should note that the two leads are bigger than the front cover depicts, with one a very athletic well-toned physique, and the other more amazonian and muscular - but you don't hear me complaining! This is that kinda of classic powerful truckstop chicks fantasy - in a ring, which is like a diamond coated with gold! Even embellished with such exclamations as "golly" it takes you right back in time for something sexy,...

Princess Lucinda's guide to world domination!
by Roderick Y.
Publisher: Channel M Publishing
Date Added: 07/09/2016 17:00:55
Princess Lucinda's guide to world domination! Before purchase, the preview is misleading because it only provides a single page of sample art, the cover. This cover artwork is of much higher quality than the remainder of the book, and the "humour" of this guide is tedious, at best. The ideas contained here would be better served as part of a larger narrative, perhaps with Lucinda describing possible plans to her friends.

BattleTech: Embers of War Excelllent book, it's nice to see a novel where no one really wins, except the bad guys and it still costs them badly.

Calidar, In Stranger Skies Fantastic illustrations and maps. great start on a new world in the vein of The Princess Ark series in old Dragon magazines. I really look forward to future publications. I also love the fact it is generally system agnostic.

Scars: An Earthdawn Novel
by Niels S.
Publisher: FASA
Date Added: 06/18/2016 18:42:21
Scars: An Earthdawn Novel The story is nicely written though the ending is a bit arupt. It offers a nice view into the lands of Barsaive and how a Horror would torment one of its victims. Since this is the first of three (SR: Worlds without Ends is the third) it really begs for the second, Little Treasures, to be released in English. Please make it happen!

BattleTech: Chaos Born (Book One of the Chaos Irregulars)
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 06/10/2016 14:42:42
BattleTech: Chaos Born (Book One of the Chaos Irregulars) I won't be purchasing book two; book one is tripe, the same old crap and, though I am normally a BattleTech aficianado, I am having great difficulty getting through the first few story bits. I've read twenty pages since I purchased it, and had to convert it to something I could use, as not everyone uses mobi or epub documents, inconsiderate, and I can't bring myself to desire to read it unless I have absolutely nothing else to do. It's amazing to me a project as poorly conceived as this one can be published, when a work nearly twenty years in the making, and which references everything in the BattleTech universe the way it should be, to establish the work within that universe, can't see the light of day. Ludicrous....

BattleTech: Isle of the Blessed Excellent compilation novel, one of the best I've read from the BattleTech universe in a long time. I like the conflicting view points of the Fed and Wobbies forces.

Oath of the Dead (fiction)
by Michael H.
Publisher: DwD Studios
Date Added: 05/17/2016 19:47:30
Oath of the Dead (fiction) The short story takes a brief glance into the world of BareBones Fantasy's 'Karanak Kingdoms' setting. In its 24 pages gives me nothing I did not enjoy. The writing style is accessable and fun, without the kind of shorthand jargon that so easily can be taken for granted in the fantasy gaming community. The only thing really wrong with it is that I now want to know the rest of the adventure and just what happens to the people in the story, which is really quite easy to imagine just how to run in a game of my own. I am prone to leaving a lot of five star reviews, as when I like something well enough to review it, I am usually that pleased wirth it. This story stands well in that esteemable company....

Random Solo Adventure: Jungle Quest Not much of a story and quite repetetive. The art is appropriate to the theme, but the style is inconsistent.
