Malice From the Middle Vale This is a great book! I have enjoyed reading it so far! I feel It has been created with care and heart. Very detailed with lore and atmosphere that really helps people like me really get into the story. If you enjoy gamebooks and are fans of Joe Devers LONE WOLF, You will enjoy this too! The system is great and feels fresh, but at the same time retains a classic gamebook feel. RECOMMENDED!

Mask of the Other
by Will H.

Mask of the Other The A Team via Delta Green - thoroughly enjoyable, creepy and excellently paced. Felt a bit rushed at the end given the long scope of the narrative but hey, fits the themes of what happens when you look too deeply into the Things Man Was Not Meant To Know. Want More.

Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine

Publisher: Jenna Katerin Moran
Date Added: 09/13/2017 22:12:12
Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine is a very eccentric, wonderful game. It is eccentric due to the author Jenna Moran's delightfully whimsical-yet-sometimes-dead-serious narrative voice; because of her nonsensical-yet-oddly-prescient style of writing that makes her occasionally seem like some sort of holy prophet. It is a wonderful game because it treats you like an equal who can help build and change the world with the tools that it gives you. Few other games give the player the power to viscerally change the way things work within it; no other game, that I know, succeeds so well in mixing its setting elements with the mechanics - from how the world is metaphysically different in some locations, to how despair can be fought in a variety of ways. If you are a player very familiar with traditional rpgs like D&D, you might have difficulty adapting; Jenna's style can be counterintuitive at times, and there might be a few moments where you'll think to yourself, 'how is this ...

Clan Novel 1: Toreador
by Xavier R. A.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 09/05/2017 14:28:36
Clan Novel 1: Toreador A smoothly written book that explains clearly most of the subterfuge this world of darkness is all about. If you are looking for a 280-pages piece that submerges you within the conflicts and dances between Kindred this is it.

Mask of the Other Book is interesting, but kindle version could have been made better - it lacks bookmarks, table on contents or even cover art.

The Worm Within - The First Chronicle Of Future Earth (novel)
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Modiphius
Date Added: 08/28/2017 07:55:37
The Worm Within - The First Chronicle Of Future Earth (novel) Short take: The Worm Within is a very enjoyable read. I recommend it and look forward to the next installment. Long take: I won't describe the plot in details, but it's pretty standard stuff for anyone who's read a smidgen of pulp fantasy and/or sat on fantasy and science-fantasy role-playing game sessions. There's a young apprentice with a mysterious past, a paladin, a magician of sorts, a thief, and a dark threat that puts the whole wold in danger. Still, Sarah Newton manages to inject enough energy in these over-used formulas to keep The Worm Within interesting. The short chapters, organized around brief sections showcasing Newton's resolute writing style, give the story a strong forward momentum almost from the get-go. There's little to no fat either: the novel's very well edited, with less than a handful of typos. Jargon pertaining to the world in which the story takes place fills the text, but I never found it so distracting that I stopped enjoying the read. In fact, as th...

Tumult: Wayfarings of Sabit: Four
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Incarnadine Press
Date Added: 08/20/2017 00:38:26
Tumult: Wayfarings of Sabit: Four Michael's stories are usually fairly stand alone, but with this you'll probably want to read Broken Justice first. Michael ventures into ghost story territory, and does so surprisingly well. Less about action, this story takes the reader into the past of the main characters and explores their personality and secrets.

Club Anyone: An Interface Zero Novel

Club Anyone: An Interface Zero Novel sorry for the crazy formatting near thr end of the review im on my phone and cant fix it at the moment i picked this up because it appeared to fall squarely within the genres i enjoy, and i'm familiar with some of the author's other work (for TTRPGs). holy crap am i glad i did! here's my brief breakdown as to why: 1) pacing: great pacing. it starts off ordinary enough, if "ordinary" includes the protagonist arriving on mars to aid in a corporate AI issue and finding out his wife wants a divorce, and from there it gets faster and faster until finally the ride slows down and deposits you at the exit, where you find yourself almost screaming "AGAIN! AGAIN!" 2) tension: the author uses tension throughout the book, both at the end of chapters and at the end of key sections to mercilessly drive you forward to the next page, and the next, and the next, until it's 5 am and you're hearing birds announcing that it's time for you to get your ass into the shower and off to work. 3) charact...

Isle of the Wicked: Wayfarings of Sabit: Two
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Incarnadine Press
Date Added: 08/04/2017 04:16:48
Isle of the Wicked: Wayfarings of Sabit: Two Another masterful story about Sabit from Michael S. Miller. As usual, the setting is a Bronze Age land of dark magic, and it is conveyed simply yet effectively. Making the world feel real, and emergning the read in it, is always one of the strength in the Sabit stories. This time Sabit and her companion are stranded on an island, and get drawn into an age old conflicts. The story is much more suspenseful that previous entries; the changing perspectives keeps the reader guessing about what is really going on, and how things will end. ...

The Barest Branch
by Luke S.
Publisher: Gonzo History Project
Date Added: 07/27/2017 03:52:54
The Barest Branch James Holloway draws on an extensive knowledge of both history and Yogsothothery to craft a tale of alienation and monstrous revelation set amid as bleak and miserable a coast as Lovecraft ever penned. Having read quite a lot of post-Lovecraftian fiction, I'm definitely coming around to the opinion that the best of the bunch is that in which the author makes a new fist of the themes rather than aping the man himself, and despite some clear and openly owned parallels to 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth', Holloway's use of a historical setting and historical characters - although he writes in profane modern vernacular, the opinions of the narrator and his fellow Vikings are grounded in the sensibilities of a more personally violent age - set him apart from Lovecraft's primarily contemporary milieu, without sacrificing the crucial sense of helplessness before the cosmic that other 'muscular mythos' writers often eschew. If I have a criticism, it's that the more overtly Lovecraftian final act...

KOBOLD Guide to Gamemastering
by Michael D. S.
Publisher: Kobold Press
Date Added: 07/25/2017 15:43:06
KOBOLD Guide to Gamemastering This KOBOLD GUIDE was the first in the series that I had ever read, and I had high expectations. One interesting detail I noted right away is that famed DM Matt Mercer is clearly the inspiration for the cover, but he doesn't have an essay featured within. Not a big deal, but funny nonetheless. The book is sorted into different sections, grouped into themes such as Before the Game, During the Game, etc. Each section contained a handful of essays written by a variety of GMs, with quite a broad range of experience and expertise. Some of them are very storied personalities, involved in very key games, developments, or events. Others are... well, just people with a bit of web presence or relatively minor impact. Not that someone's advice should be judged solely on their previous work, but I feel it should at least be mentioned that not every author will necessarily come off as an authority. To give a bit of context, I've been DM-ing weekly for about 15 years, now, with a variety o...

Blossom of Ruin: Wayfarings of Sabit: One
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Incarnadine Press
Date Added: 07/25/2017 00:49:46
Blossom of Ruin: Wayfarings of Sabit: One A Sword and Sorcery story set in a world of sand and violence. A exceptionally well written short, it follows Sabit, a spear fighter, and how the vile evil that tries to destroy her has unsuspected connections to her past. Standing up to evil, as sometimes the easiest part. While the characters in this story live simple lives of life, death and vengeance, this story has plenty of depth, especially about right and wrong when you live by the sword.

The Mercy We Make
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Incarnadine Press
Date Added: 07/23/2017 12:20:51
The Mercy We Make For a short story, this one is as rich and engaging as a story twice its length. Paced perfectly, it lets the reader tag along on a journey of exploration, obligation and retribution. A proper short story, it is self contained, while it also offers glimpses of a larger world. Having read nothing by the author of setting before, is no impediment for enjoying this excellent story. While the story is full of dangers and treacheries, it is told in a clear and paced tone. It isn't exaggerated, but gives the straight-forward descriptions, placing the reader squarely in the shoes of the protagonist....
