BattleTech: Isle of the Blessed
by Christian G.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 09/26/2014 07:51:16
BattleTech: Isle of the Blessed Not a native English Speaker - so i hardly can say something about the narrative style. But the story is great, it was a thrilling read. No typical good vs bad - no superheros - only humans that fight and die for the right reason - and both sides have good reasons to keep fighting.

Strangeness in the Proportion
by Josh L.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 09/24/2014 15:21:56
Strangeness in the Proportion I cannot quite determine how, in it's entirety, this book has so quickly taken a hold on me. During its original run on White Wolf's website, I was lucky enough to come across it, and even then, I felt there was something special about it; there was something unique to the work that just seemed to pull at my heart and soul. However, as the story goes, awaiting new chapters, I grew lax in my reading, and with the exception of the occasional mention in the back of my mind (perhaps a Corbie's whisper?), I forgot about "Strangeness in the Proportion." Jump ahead over a year, and the time came for a Christmas gift. As if on cue, the whisper came again, reminding me of the story's existence, and lo and behold, a printed copy was available in addition to the ebook. With that decided, the book soon came in and the gift was delivered with much merriment. All I remained with was the ebook, and figuring the time was now right, I dove back into the World of Darkness. It shames me that it took ...

Flesh Welder Audiobook
by Crystal M.
Publisher: Macabre Ink Digital
Date Added: 09/22/2014 21:37:27
Flesh Welder Audiobook The FleshWelder is a short story based in an apocalyptic world, where fear and violence are used equally to control what is left of the living population. We meet a doctor who has an ability to repair limbs and body parts, taking pieces of the dead to heal the living. He buys these parts off scavengers, trading basic supplies such as canned meat or bullets for them. The other character is The General Pain, a violent man who will rape, kill and plunder whatever he wants. The two characters meet when the General has most of his body burned and damaged from a bomb. After the FleshWelder repairs his broken body, the General walks out without payment. The General pushes himself too far, and the FleshWelder and his nurse take their revenge on the cruel man and his army.  The story itself reads very much like a western. The descriptions and language used are strong and gritty, matching the world in which they live. How this doctor becomes the FleshWelder is somewhat of a mystery, lea...

Calidar, In Stranger Skies
by Roberto M.
Publisher: Calidar Publishing
Date Added: 09/21/2014 11:22:05
Calidar, In Stranger Skies Bruce Heard has crafted a fun and interesting campaign world that pays homage to the world he helped define during his tenure in TSR and his famous column in Dragon magazine, while introducing us to his new World of Calidar full of adventure, mysteries and, I say it again because it bears repeating, fun! If you are a fan of the Gazetteer series (which is available here in Drive Trhu RPG as well) and The Voyage of the Princess Ark articles and eventual box set (Champions of Mystara) , there is a lot of what made those fun in this book. Sky ships, exploration, adventure. From the tone to the maps, there is a clear inspiration in the past, but Heard has spread his wings and brought us a new setting with conflicts, adventure possibilities and many new tantalizing secrets that makes Calidar more than a nostalgia trip. This is a new campaign sure to satisfy fans, old and new. The PDF is great, fully bookmarked, with terrific layout and the maps, the maps are just awesome and really useful...

Inherit the Earth

Inherit the Earth Pretty interesting collection of short stories. Two of them worth reading: (1) "The Treatment of Dr. Ebrhardt" by Stefan Petrucha, (2) "Unusual Suspects" by Richard Lee Byers. The rest i just don't understand. While "The treatment" has unusual plot and characters; and "Unusual Suspects" - classical 'close room' detective puzzle in Vamps-vs-Hunter wrapping, the rest of the book has nothing entertaining. Also .PDF file has this 'page order' issue: after 230 you have 233, then 232, then 231, and then 234. First thought - i have misprint something, but discovered it wasn't my printer's fault. Weird....

On a Black Tide

On a Black Tide The book was interesting however i am not interested in playing the villain in adventures. The writing style was superb and I would rate the descriptions as excellent, but I am rating the product as bad for the direction of the story. Blood thirsty homicidal and driven to murder his way up the ladder to success all aptly describe the main character. Being evil is not fun.

Hawaii Star Manga Project #4 I was impressed with the quality. The pop iki section was excellent. I miss Bon dance food out here in Texas and it brought back good memories. I never down loaded a comic before so I will be getting more issues in the future.

The Pirate GM's Taste of the Treasures
by James H.
Publisher: Black Shark Enterprises
Date Added: 09/05/2014 19:25:04
The Pirate GM's Taste of the Treasures A useful set of tables for an upcoming product. While obviously keyed to the real world, the information within is easily adaptable to any historical high seas adventure, and is great for inspiring any would-be DM in need of a small push, rather than a laid out adventure.

The Pirate GM's Taste of the Treasures
by Christian B.
Publisher: Black Shark Enterprises
Date Added: 09/05/2014 15:51:21
The Pirate GM's Taste of the Treasures It is only 4 pages of tables with ideas and information you might already have when your planning an nautical/piratical adventure. It only gives the very basic ideas and then falls very short on delivering any more. You cant really use this. Also it is kind of based on the real world, so many names (like: The Dutchmen) and locations are worthless if you want to aplly those into a fantasy background. Not really necessary in my point of view. However their other nautical products might be more suitable to create thrilling adventures at sea - containing also encounters and more information about ship classes....

Shadowrun: Sail Away, Sweet Sister (Enhanced Fiction)
by Adrian S. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 08/30/2014 04:57:17
Shadowrun: Sail Away, Sweet Sister (Enhanced Fiction) By now you probably already know that 'Sail Away Sweet Sister' is the sequel to 'Another Rainy Night'. If you didn't, go back and pick up the first in the series. Whilst some will say that this novella could stand alone, readers will have a much more coherent experience if the companion volume if read first. Now - on to the actual story. It is a well-written piece of fiction that pays attention to little details, good characterisation, vampires-as-monsters, and Shadowrun continuity. The author is obviously a fan of the setting and this shines through in their style. All of the characters are given solid personalities, drawbacks, and (in some cases) slightly disturbing vices as coping mechanisms for the Sixth World. It would be really easy to mine the concepts in the novella to flesh out NPCs for your next game. The story ties into the hints from 'Storm Front' (a brilliant source book from 4e) that those afflicted by HMHVV are experiencing far worse symptoms than usual. The n...

Shadowrun: Nothing Personal (Enhanced Fiction)

Date Added: 08/29/2014 07:52:47
Shadowrun: Nothing Personal (Enhanced Fiction) In quite enjoyed this book; plenty of intrigue coupled with an interesting point-of-view that I've rarely, if ever, seen in a work of Shadowrun fiction. The story held my attention throughout, and I found both the characters, their stories, and the plot twists to be highly engaging and amusing. Well worth the low price of admission.

Shadowrun: Nothing Personal (Enhanced Fiction)
by David W.

Date Added: 08/24/2014 17:32:30
Shadowrun: Nothing Personal (Enhanced Fiction) Shadowrun seems to be going through a resurgence of popularity of late with a new video game and RPG edition and it made me want to pick up this story to give it a try. Once upon a time I loved the stories of Nigel Findley, Robert N. Charrette and Mel Odom who in my mind have already gone and set a standard for the setting of Shadowrun. A Shadowrun story brings some expectations for me. A world of magic and near future where machines invade everyone's life and even their bodies. A grey world of cyberpunk meeting the light and dark of fantasy. With Street Samurai, Native Shamans caught up in the schemes of ancient elves and dragons. A genre of its own where other unlikely genres come to meet and interact. The story while well written didn't evoke any of that for me. It started with a cold sex scene that had me wondering what I was reading right form the start. None of the traditional mixes of Japanese slang or other Shadowrun slang are used in the story that I noticed It isn't a cyb...

Shadowrun: Nothing Personal (Enhanced Fiction)

Shadowrun: Nothing Personal (Enhanced Fiction) Nothing Personal is a relatively entertaining read. Looking at a run from the perspective of Mr. Johnson definitely isn't the usual take you get. The bevy of double crosses and intrigues amuse as always. This is pretty light on the metaplot elements, something I am always grateful for. The only point I noticed was the changes in hacking in the new era in Shadowrun, and that isn't really integral to the plot. I do have three criticisms, though I'll acknowledge the first two are matters of taste. Nothing Personal uses more conventional profanity and slang rather than the more traditional Shadowrun terms. I know that has fallen out of favor in recent years but I still prefer my "slots" and "frags." The second criticism I have is that there is a somewhat explicit sex scene near the beginning of the story. While I understand that the protagonist is supposed to come off as a slime ball, I think it's a case where alluding to it would be better than showing us his misogynistic nature. Agai...

Writer Tools Generator Pack "Hey Jason you only ever give five stars to the most superlative stuff out there " "No, that's not true at all, sometimes I give five stars to something that's just really good, but has some element that especially tickles my fancy or which has had an unusual amount of use in my gaming, that's what I mean by 'reviewers tilt'." "So are you really going to give a five star rating to just a bunch of random generators?!" "Yes, here's why: Although they're not quite 'tools' so much as prompts, this set of random generators goes beyond the normal 'roll on this table' nonsense that often gets shlepped around on the site as a means of brainstorming. Instead of needing dice, you just click and immediately get five options for your next plotline, short story, poem (!!!), or location. There's a gag 'motivator' telling you to write more words today ('1033 more and you learn the secret in secret sauce!) and, quite provocatively, there's a 'visual' generator that instead of saying someo...
