Shadowrun: Hell on Water
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 11/13/2015 10:38:47
Shadowrun: Hell on Water Totally disagree with the previous review. There was little time to expand on all of the characters as the action was expansive. I loved the way the book was written, more episodic than linear. It made me want to spend more time in Africa (as a character)

Dark Convergence
by Adrian S. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Privateer Press
Date Added: 11/12/2015 18:05:15
Dark Convergence 'Dark Convergence' deals with the incursion of the Convergence of Cyriss and the attempts of the Cygnaran forces (under Nemo) to not only repel them, but also find the purpose of their unexpected aggression. As a game novel, this does well to show the day-to-day workings of the Iron Kingdoms and those who play either of these forces in the miniatures game will probably enjoy the character exploration. Those unfamiliar with the game may struggle initially as the book introduces a great number of established NPCs in the first chapter with little explanation of who they are and how they operate. However, as the story unfolds, this is explored in more detail (and it does answer the question of how effective the Devil Dogs are against 'jacks and the usual casualty rates). Unlike many other game novels, I could not imagine the sounds of dice rolling in the background during the combat encounters which was highly gratifying. Whilst the author has clearly 'done their homework', it doesn't...

Strangeness in the Proportion
by Ryan T.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 11/05/2015 08:01:56
Strangeness in the Proportion I didn't want to follow the crowd and give this book five stars. I wanted to be realistic. Bring a critical eye to the table. But...Mother Hubbard! This is a good story. A great one! And, honestly, when I look at some elements of it, that sort of surprises me. Right off the bat, you see what would appear to be that overly complex Look At How Big My Vocabulary Is writing style. And references to Poe? Hot Topic left a very sour taste in my mouth in regards to such things. And yet...for these and other potential pitfalls, the author manages to justify them. Tropes that you'd assume are cliché or trite feel, much like Simon Meeks himself, entirely genuine. I will admit that the dialogue is often too complex and witty to read like natural speech, but even that is a small criticism compared to just how clever and fun and moving that dialogue can be. There are so many characters and concepts in this book that are so wonderful they make me mad. For, now that I've read of them, I can't think...

Burning Lands Comic #4 Enjoyed it. Enough that I'll be buying the novel. Disappointed that the graphic novel wasn't continued.

Frostgrave - Tales of the Frozen City
by Bart B.
Publisher: Osprey Publishing
Date Added: 10/18/2015 18:40:30
Frostgrave - Tales of the Frozen City I purchased the rulebook last week, read it completely and got straight into this collection. The rulebook had little bits of thematic work, I found this collection really 'fleshed it out' and helped me understand the vision for Frostgrave. I chewed through the stories in one sitting, and enjoyed them. Being short stories, they were all about 'the twist in the tail' and they had some very clever twists. Well worth the price to help you 'get' Frostgrave.

Magical Bears in the Context of Contemporary Political Theory
by Andre C.
Publisher: Jenna Katerin Moran
Date Added: 10/04/2015 12:40:33
Magical Bears in the Context of Contemporary Political Theory I got this book on a whim, because the theme was something I thought I'd enjoy, and it became one of my favourite books this year. If the author had known me since childhood, and had decided to write a book specifically catering to my interests to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of our friendship, she wouldn't be able to write something I'd enjoy so much. The book is a collection of short stories. The theme of "Magical Bears in the Context of Contemporary Political Theory" is the alledged link, but I'd describe it as a book about really weird, funny or even stupid concepts developed very seriously until their breaking point. For instance, "What if Sailors (like from Sailor Moon) were U.S. senators?" or "What would the political systems of magical jelly bean animals be like?" You'd think those stories would be hilarious. And they are! When Jenna Katerin Moran decides to write a funny story, it's hilarious. She's witty and silly and bizarre. She'll commit wholeheartedly to an ...

Delta Green: Extraordinary Renditions
by David M.
Publisher: Arc Dream Publishing
Date Added: 10/03/2015 10:04:38
Delta Green: Extraordinary Renditions For those unfamiliar with Delta Green, I would say that they collect the bleakest, darkest, most soul-eroding windows into modern Lovecraftian horror. Unsanctioned tradecraft in a never ending war against the unimaginable horrors that lurk behind the corners of reality, trying to hold back the tide, one sanity breaking battle at a time. Needless to say, agents never survive unscathed, if they survive at all. "Extraordinary Renditions" is the fruit of the Kickstarter for the previous Delta Green story collection, "Tales From Failed Anatomies". The Kickstarter was so successful, that it gave birth to two story collections. "Tales From Failed Anatomies" was outstanding, but I have to say that "Extraordinary Renditions" felt even better. Or worse, if you are the characters held within its pages. With a massive collection of amazing writers like Adam Scott Glancy, Dennis Detwiller, Kenneth Hite, Greg Stolze, Shane Ivey, Cody Goodfellow, and more, each story gives us a glimpse to d...

Deadlands: One Shot
by Daniel L.
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
Date Added: 09/26/2015 06:57:10
Deadlands: One Shot While I was aware of the Doomtown CCG and the Deadlands RPG back in the '90's this is my first product that I have purchased in the setting. As my introduction into the world it is both a satisfying comic and satisfying world guide. My desire to read more comics in the setting and to try the game is evidence of its' successful execution. The art is good, though some of the characters do look a like. The tone is enhanced by both the moodiness and vibrancy of the colors. The Horror and Western genres are simultaneously showcased by art that is both creepy and full of action. I very rarely find two different genres blended as seamlessly as they are here. From a technical standpoint the scan is decent but not without flaws. Some pages have white edges while others do not. There are some dialog boxes that are clipped by the edge of the page. It's a reasonable recreation of the original comic. Overall, I am excited about looking further into the setting and catalog....

Shadowrun: DocWagon 19

Shadowrun: DocWagon 19 I am a big fan of Shadowrun and so I really enjoyed this book. Very much liked the different approach to telling the story as well as seeing things from the other side of the fence (Docwagon not the shadows). Might have been a couple of typos but nothing that stopped me enjoying the story.
