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....

Falling Stars - Adventure: Into the Long Dark Night
by RONALD P.
Publisher: Lock 'n Load Publishing
Date Added: 07/23/2017 06:03:46
Falling Stars - Adventure: Into the Long Dark Night I purchased Falling Stars the Core rule book, based on the high quality of Lock n Load publishings games. It was a little sparse on background info so I purchased this adventure, expecting it to provide possibly a little more background. It turns out it is merely an adventure, written to appeal to the totally novice role player, with hardly any useful info for the Falling Stars setting. If it had been $5, I would not have been critical. Their needs to be a disclaimer that this is a product for totally novice players and is designed for them, and not something a seasoned gamer need bother with....

The Chronicles of Ardis: Concordance I very much enjoyed this escape from reality! The settings were uniquely descriptive and the characters were a joy to learn about. I am quite excited about the sequel! Well done, my friend! By the way, I have met Tracy. Super nice, and witty. All around great person. Check out the book! You won't be disappointed!

Chronicles of the Demon Lord
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Schwalb Entertainment
Date Added: 06/02/2017 15:29:51
Chronicles of the Demon Lord 5 stories and a very quick read. I was done before I knew it. Would be better priced at a around $1.99 - $2.99 as it takes only about an hour or so to complete the entire book. The writing, while not out of this world, is very solid and each author brings their own take to the world of Urth (The official setting for "Shadow of the Demon Lord"). If I had to rank the stories I'd say that the first was my favorite. Mainly because it was evocative and portrayed a situation and characters that might easily be converted into an adventure for the game. it wa quite well done and a very enjoyable (if brief) read! Each of the other stories are right up there as well, they just didn't strike me the way the first did. I was looking to gain a general "feel" for the world of Urth by picking these stories up, and I think that they helped in that endeavor. If you're looking for an hour or so worh of enjoyable jaunts into the world of Urth then I might pick this up. But it's most certainly not o...

Adventures in The Construction Paper Kingdom Presents "Book III Prince Alexander & The City of Nightmares"
by John M.
Publisher: High Adventure Publishing

Adventures in The Construction Paper Kingdom Presents "Book III Prince Alexander & The City of Nightmares" This is the third CPK book I've purchased. I read the first two immediately after their release, and they were real gems. So I was excited to see a third release, and it has not disappointed. Just like the first two, Book III is a really creative adventure that is perfect for stoking the minds of young readers, with a real knack for hooking us adults as well! Ryan Ross seems to have a real knack for weaving valuable lessons about integrity and courage into fantasy tales that take readers to places ripe with mythical beings, danger, and of course, young heroes! Love the unique style to the artwork, love the storylines and themes, and STRONGLY recommend this to anyone looking to share unique adventure stories with the young people in their life....

W20 The Song of Unmaking
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 05/30/2017 22:26:06
W20 The Song of Unmaking I seriously did not want to put this book down. It has a quality similar to the tribe novels, albiet in a more compact form. Shorter isn't a bad thing though, as the auther paced the story progression well. The dynamics that made the novels based on Werewolf the Apocalypse so enjoyable to me are all there in sufficient details without dragging out and slowing down. The interplay of werewolf society, mysticism, and the raw power. All of it is there. More importantly, the author displayed their creativity and skill in telling the story. I had my guesses as to how the story would end and what the final events would be, but when it happened I was suprised. Yet at the same time I thought to myself, "Of course, that makes perfect sense." It was a very satisfying conclusion to a very satisfying book....

Dawn of Heresies
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 05/30/2017 19:55:57
Dawn of Heresies Dawn of Heresies was a surprisingly good novel, and if I have any complaint it's that the story flew by so quickly. The book actually intercuts three fast paced smaller stories: a contemporary pair of cultists trying to pick up the pieces of a barely survived tragedy with their distant, yet somehow maternal, Arisen patron; the rebirth and evil adventures of their Shuankhsen enemy; and flashes of the very distant past, in what appears to be a related, but moreover pre-historically significant, series of events that may have led to the original Rite of Return. Cannon??? Since I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of the Mummy: The Curse rules and game dynamics, most of the world building seemed accurate and appropriate, not to mention exciting and well-crafted. Though there was a small issue regarding how the Shuankhsen operated and spoke about his own creation, it never interfered with the reality (or fantasy) of the overall story. The uses of affinities and utterances were creative, ...

W20 The Song of Unmaking
by Anna R.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 05/25/2017 15:40:51
W20 The Song of Unmaking World of Darkness, and especially Werewolf the Apocalypse novels aren't uncommon. However, one issue they all tend to share is a very varying view on the setting. While minor omissions and mistakes can be forgiven, there are times that the novels' world does not match the Werewolf-setting enough for the reader to understand things in context. This is not the case with Song of Unmaking. The book takes pains to include things important to the Werewolf the Apocalypse setting and make sure they all matter. The Litany is there, Rank among the garou is there, as are challenges. The reader can easily use their knowledge of the setting to understand the gravity of each scene and the politics present in the sept the story is set at. However, if the book was just accurate to the setting, it would at max get three stars from me and mostly because setting accuracy is so rare. But Song of Unmaking is also a good story, using the setting material masterfully to craft the story, rather than be ...

The Illuminated Edda

The Illuminated Edda I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I was a little skeptical, but found the beautiful artwork alone to be worth the purchase. The retellings of the Viking mythologies is super fun to read, and the way it is written makes it enjoyable to read even if you already know the stories. Very entertaining and fun to sit down to read just one story or to sit for hours pouring over the stories or even just the artwork. More than impressed and happy with this Viking tome. The shipping was very fast as well. ...

Tales of the Dark Eras

Tales of the Dark Eras http://www.teilzeithelden.de/2017/04/18/rezension-tales-of-t-
he-dark-eras-onyx-path/ Es geht gruselig zu, von der Antike bis in die Gegenwart. Der komplementäre Kurzgeschichtenband zu Chronicles of Darkness: Dark Eras entführt den Leser in leicht verdaulichen Happen in vergangene Zeiten. Dabei kommen auch Klischees, Horror und Ideen für Rollenspieler nicht zu kurz. Mittlerweile ist es ja bereits eine ungeschriebene Regel: Für jedes neue Spielsystem bringt Onyx Path auch eine dazu passende Kurzgeschichtensammlung heraus. Dieses Mal ist dies jedoch aus zwei Gründen bemerkenswert: Erstens handelt es sich bei Dark Eras nicht um ein neues System (wie etwa Demon: The Descent oder Mummy: The Curse), sondern um eine Erweiterung für alle bisher erschienenen Spielsysteme. Und zweitens spielen die Kurzgeschichten nicht in der gruseligen Gegenwart, sondern in der Vergangenheit der Chronicles of Darkness. Die Ankündigung des Bandes dürfte vor allem Lore-Fans der Rollenspielreihe gefallen: „Als...

The House of Hex A great sword-and-sorcery story that will surprise to the end. Paced perfectly, it's neither mindless action nor tedious. It captures the genre, and effectivly conveys both the story and the location it takes place in.
