Battling Doubt: How to Push Beyond Your Final Barriers and Finish Your Book
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: F+W Media
Date Added: 01/13/2017 15:49:19
Battling Doubt: How to Push Beyond Your Final Barriers and Finish Your Book The book consists of 10 e-book pages, including the title page and the author's background; the given advice is solid, but mediocre - nothing surprising, no epiphany if you have read a few other books on writing already. Even though the e-book is pleasant to read and amusing, I doubt that the price of $2.99 is appropriate (of course assuming I did not miss anything). While the content itself can be rated from 3 to 4 stars, the pricetag is a serious speed bump in my opinion, if compared to the works on writing by Steven Pressfield or Chuck Wendig, for example....

Delta Green: Extraordinary Renditions
by Mark K.
Publisher: Arc Dream Publishing
Date Added: 01/13/2017 13:49:44
Delta Green: Extraordinary Renditions I have been hearing about Delta Green for a while now, listening to a few Roleplay podcasts and getting into the theme of the game. I am interested in running some Delta Green campaigns soon, and someone recommended this book if you were "Wanted to see the progression of the organization through the years." It is a collection of short stories that take place from shortly after the inception of Delta Green all the way up to present day. Each is set about 5~15 years apart. Being multiple short stories by different authors, the book didn't have time to slow down. While I found each one pleasurable in its own way, if one story isn't to your liking, a new one will pop up soon. If you're looking to get a nice, rounded picture of Delta Green, or want some inspiration when you run your own games, these are a fantastic introduction. My only recommendation would be to find a rough timeline of the history of Delta Green. It goes through several organizational changes from the 1920's to to...

Infernal This is a highly entertaining read. I expected to want more at the end because it's short, but it's all wrapped up very nicely.

Dresden Files RPG Casefile: Neutral Grounds
by Jeremiah E.
Publisher: Evil Hat Productions, LLC
Date Added: 01/10/2017 10:46:38
Dresden Files RPG Casefile: Neutral Grounds Being a fan of the Dresdenverse, I have enjoyed this adventure and felt like it fit into the "feeling" of Jim Butcher's world. Easy to read and it ran fairly quickly with the players enjoying the session. No issues with the adventure, but at the time we were new the mechanics of the rules and it took us a bit to get the hang of the part.

The Illuminated Edda
by Sean M.
Publisher: Pendelhaven
Date Added: 01/02/2017 14:41:22
The Illuminated Edda Pros: This is a delightful collection of stories from Norse myth, woven together into a continuous narrative along with the added bonus of myths from other cultures (such as Celtic, Finnish, and Baltic). The illustrations are beautiful, as well, and were certainly one of the main selling points. Andrew has done a great job with this translation, bringing to life many stories of which I am fond, while, at the same time, taking liberties to make it his own without detracting from the source material. Cons: My only real complaints come from the amount of typographical errors in the book (but I am rather critical of such issues). The binding of the book also caused some minor annoyance, as I feel that the text extends too far toward where the pages curve and come together with the spine; this causes difficulty in reading the words near that area and with the size of the book, it is difficult to flatten it out to remedy the situation. Overall, the cons never took away from my enjoy...

Upside Down: Inverted Tropes in Storytelling

Publisher: Apex Book Company

Upside Down: Inverted Tropes in Storytelling General verdict: short and sweet. And an inspiring read to boot. Doubly surprising, since I usually never get my reading material online. Still, well worth the exception.

Triniton the prequel Imaginative and very fun. Really sets the stage for the game. Basic version for kids and very big words for adults. Both really great!

Hunter Horror Recognition Guide
by Maths E.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 12/13/2016 18:13:39
Hunter Horror Recognition Guide The title is rather misleading, It´s not much of a guide more a collection of short encounters/stories from a hunter cell. I did purchase it hoping for a comprehensive creatures guide and was rather dissapointed, there are bits and pieces strewn through the pages regarding hunter tactics and lore that isn´t individual accounts up for odd interpretation. The rest of the content feels more or less like flavour text. There are definetely some people who would enjoy and benefit greatly of some mood setting stories but i´m sadly not one of them. The scanning was readable but not as clear as i wouldv´e liked....

King Arthur
by Frank L.
Publisher: Osprey Publishing
Date Added: 12/09/2016 08:33:53
King Arthur This is a fun book touching on some of the basics of King Arthur and his many legends. It is short, and nearly half the book covers the idea of searching for a historical Arthur. That part didn't appeal to me nearly as much, especially because the talk of his legends and stories stopped being referenced or expanded upon in this section. So all in all, a little light on content for 10 bucks, but otherwise a nice text.

Thousand Correct Actions
by Ismael A.
Publisher: White Wolf

Thousand Correct Actions I really feel like they could have just pointed you at a copy of Sun Tsu's the Art of War. This is good, but it could have been included or paired with another product and been less of a production. I honestly don't think that the team at this time was up to task to make a book that is on par with "The Book of Nod" or other books in this series of "in universe fiction" that were so steller in the past.

Ephemeris
by Stephen Y.
Publisher: Nomadic Delirium Press
Date Added: 12/02/2016 08:09:52
Ephemeris At 332 pages, 297 are the content. When trying to get a review or rwo for Ephemeris; I found this one: https://youtu.be/NQS6mRd- kdzQ I do agree with most of what he says (Tetsubo57). Editing: font size ok. Perhaps saved 20-30 pages by condensing some of the example classes shown (possible.) Combat rounds are 10 seconds long. Weapons have a damage factor, which is multiplied by the difference between the attack and defence rolls. The Arbonix to me do seem somewhat wierd, with 2 rows of 'nipples' on their chest to 'float'. The system shouldn't be too hard to 'home rule' by GMs, if they wish to make changes for their campaign or scenario(s) they are running. If you prefer using D6 instead of D20 for OGl; Ephemeris should do pretty much ok. At £4.00/$4.99, it's serviceable....

Exalted: Tales From the Age of Sorrows
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 12/01/2016 11:54:20
Exalted: Tales From the Age of Sorrows I am VERY excited that these fiction anthologies are being made for all the game lines, so I am going to rate this one or two stars higher than I ordinarily would for stories and writing of this caliber. I want more things like this to be done. That being said, I sometimes feel like these authors just don't really 'get' the source material. Why are so many characters flinging around terms like, "He's a Dawn Caste Solar Exalted!"? That kind of thing is jarring, and it happens all the time here. 'Chosen of the Unconquered Sun' or 'Anathema' or something like that works a lot better. When I see "Dawn Caste Solar Exalted" it produces the same reaction in me as it would if R.A Salvatore were to introduce Drizzt by saying, "There he stood, a level 16 dark elf ranger". It's clunky, and game-term-y, and really shouldn't be used like that. In the future, I would like to see more stories that are essentially the novelization of a short adventure that a real group of players might go ...
