Pursuit: Wayfarings of Sabit: Five

Publisher: Incarnadine Press

Pursuit: Wayfarings of Sabit: Five A tense story, with a fitting name. With a relentless drive, it raises the stakes at every opportunity before reaching a climactic and satisfying ending. Allthough this is the sixth Sabit story, it works well alone. It moves effortlessly between characters, making all of them, both heroes and villians, stand out as full characters.

Unmasked: Day One

Unmasked: Day One It was a nice little teaser, but I was hoping for something more. I get the whole special mask thing, but it really did not give me much to truly understand what the world was about. Maybe a conflict where the character used the mask would have been cool. It just gave me more questions. Oh well, I'm already planning my campaign. I just need to wait for the book to come out.

FREE Innsmouth Music Sampler

Publisher: Darkling Harp
Date Added: 11/04/2017 16:58:30
FREE Innsmouth Music Sampler Refreshingly free from the stains of hubris and narcicissm Tim Fatchen delivers what he promises! Dark, gloomy, and moody this sample aka example of his background music (for Cthulhu or World of Darkness) made a very good impression to me, and worked even while editing my own fiction and cover-art-composing! A wonderful appetizer proving that the musician or sound-artist Tim Fatchen did earn his place on our wishlists & products to remember! [ I gave five of five stars, but due destruction of my main notebook I am working on long outdated tech, the screen shaking and flashing due the constantly overpowered 64MB graphic chip losing it...] ...

Arkham Horror: Hour of the Huntress
by Paul H.
Publisher: Fantasy Flight Games
Date Added: 11/02/2017 23:29:13
Arkham Horror: Hour of the Huntress I enjoyed this ebook, though it was rather too short for my taste. A lot of time was devoted to character development and backstory but the the book ended; my assumption is that there will be further adventures in future short stories but I was left a little deflated at the end as much was left unexplained and unresolved. I felt that some of the characters were a little stereotyped; from gentile Parisian to gun toting, follower slaying machine, tom boy mechanic, other worldly academic, nice-but-dim, skeptical cop. All if that said though, it was thouroughly enjoyable to read and I read it from virtual cover to cover in a couple of sessions over a couple of days, and was genuinely disappointed when there were no more pages to turn. More please, now the characters are established so all the more room for plot....

Frontier Cthulhu This is a collection of short fiction. I have not yet read the stories; this review is more a review of the product blurb, which sounds (in the context of this being an rpg-centric store) like a collection of modules. It's not.

Courage and Steel (Erlik's Saga Book 1)
by Jeremy H.
Publisher: Four Fools Press
Date Added: 10/14/2017 23:04:26
Courage and Steel (Erlik's Saga Book 1) The first night I got it, I read the first section. There's a fight between the main character and his cousin. The fight and the immediate aftermath were cool, but... I guess it didn't grab me. I am a fan of the Vikings show on History and it seemed a bit too much like fanfic to really spark my interest. When I got back into it, once he was out and about in the world it became a lot more interesting. Things I really liked: 1.) The tidbits of archaic vocabulary. It was just enough to keep the ruleofcool without getting distracting. 2.) Usage of the vrykolakes. I always thought that undead monster was rather cool but rarely encountered in any DnD I ever played. 3.) The illustrations are also great....

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

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
by Rodrigo A. B.
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 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.

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...
