Death Head

Death Head No spoilers here. I thoroughly enjoyed being thrown directly into the action and learning myriad details alongside the characters. Not bogging down the reader with overly detailed description, our intrepid author nonetheless succeeds in weaving a tapestry of adventure and mystery full of vivid color. You feel the wet heat of the fen, smell the rot of dirty straw on the floor, and see the guttering flame and black smoke from the torch, throwing its last light into the wicked, gleaming eyes of the enemy. Twists of fate abound and no one can be assumed to be safe, when unknown horrors haunt the land and attack in the dark of night. Reading these Erlik stories continues to engage and entertain like all the best and most classic pulp adventure stories....

Finnegan's Wake

Finnegan's Wake What starts in a pub, between friends who’ve known each other for aeons, can end many ways. The detailed description of the pub hooked me. Drawn into the setting, of course I then want to know more about this adversarial friendship between Finn and Shaun, and from the start I know they’d be dangerous fun to listen to, over several pints. Oh, the fate of the good, the bad, and poor Mickey O’Shea. Well-paced and a quick read, the supernatural arrives with a twinkle in its eye. I've re-read it twice and recommended it to friends. The banter between Finn and Shaun somehow reminded me of the odd friendship between Aziraphale and Crowley in Good Omens (Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman), so if you're a fan of that, this fits on that same shelf, to my way of thinking. I only knock it down to 4 stars for two reasons. First, I wish there were more of it and second, the author keeps dropping teasing hints about past adventures and battles between Finn and Shaun. I strongly feel just a few mo...

Angel's Glow
by Jennifer W.
Publisher: Four Fools Press
Date Added: 02/26/2018 16:45:02
Angel's Glow We find duty-bound Corporal A. P. Peacock, 27th Alabama Regiment of the Confederacy, in the midst of the bloody battlefield of Shiloh, having neither finished his medical training nor his seminary studies. Unprepared, yet willing to do what he can with the skills he has, Peacock encounters a darkness, an otherworldly coldness that chills him to the core of his being. Surrounded by wounded soldiers, desperate for any aid that can be offered, Peacock sets to the work at hand with only a sewing kit, his knife, and knowledge gained through brief study. The young man’s faith is tested as much as are these skills, as he fights to overcome his doubt in his own half-trained abilities and his despair, faced with wave upon wave of increasingly suffering wounded. Never a superstitious sort, Peacock is surprised to not only hear about the legend of the Angel’s Glow, but to see its phosphorescense with his own eyes. The air is filled with the sounds of war, gunshot and cannon fire, whispered ...

Night's Nadir
by Jennifer W.

Date Added: 02/26/2018 16:43:49
Night's Nadir A mysterious mission into Mufkat, an ancient mine, in Sinai. No way is that a complete description of this odd tale, full of such vivid description that it nearly distracts from the character actions. Then those actions become so involving that everything balances. I was swept up in the adventure, the choking air in those tight tunnels, the many traps, and some not physical in nature. Barnabas, our protagonist, has a mantra, “don’t meddle with the past” and of course he knew that past was better left undisturbed, but he has a mission. Ancient places, dark powers, both lines not to be crossed by mere mortals, yet curiosity compels him to do just that. He boldly crosses that line, inevitably to discover the source of the power he can sense. Barnabas throws himself in and hopes to unravel the mystery before he, himself, may be unraveled? He goes with his gut and doesn’t let his rational mind be fooled by the maelstrom. This weird fictional journey is an intense read, and I had to re...

M20 The Mage Cookbook 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!

Ponyfinder - Kind Blades and Cruel Divinity
by Customer Name Withheld [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Silver Games LLC
Date Added: 01/28/2018 20:59:34
Ponyfinder - Kind Blades and Cruel Divinity 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...

A Mote, Amidst a Tide of Darkness Interesting short story. The concept is quite interesting and the theory of which side is the right and which one is wrong is a compelling one. Still, it leaves you with more questions than answers.

The Dinner Party

The Dinner Party 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.

KOBOLD Guide to Worldbuilding 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.

CAL1 Calidar, In Stranger Skies 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!

Pugmire: Thank You, Darcy Cat 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.
