Tales from The Strange
by Rob E.
Publisher: Monte Cook Games
Date Added: 05/18/2015 15:48:09
Tales from The Strange The short fiction in this product was enjoyable on its own, but really added to my understanding of how the swamis at Monte Cook Games envisioned some of the key elements of life in the world of The Strange. Two stories by Bruce Cordell, and one each by Monte Cook and Shanna Germain.

Witch Girls Adventure Rule book
by keith b.
Publisher: Channel M Publishing
Date Added: 05/18/2015 01:29:15
Witch Girls Adventure Rule book Upon purchasing a product I immediately start looking at how many genres the system can mimic easily and how many it can with a little work. The game system and information provided can handle many genres easily with no effort on the GMs part. So if you don't want to be a teen age witch you can easily be a male teen with magical powers or a witch hunter, shapeshifter, vampire, God of past pantheons, etc. with the information provided by means of dozens of samples of npcs and creatures and animals you can be almost anything you want with in the world provided. If you want to be a super hero or government agent with psionic powers you can with very little effort. I immediately started to think of past cartoons that could be mimicked such as 1980's He-man, thunder cats, up to current thunder cats, dragonball z, and many others that can be done. the only genre not possible without a lot more effort is Mecha but as the greatest part of the game is the magic system you probably do not wan...

Android: Free Fall
by Mike K.
Publisher: Fantasy Flight Games
Date Added: 05/12/2015 19:52:33
Android: Free Fall I read this from the point of a GM trying to find out about the Android universe. I felt the story was engaging and enjoyed reading it. It goes into some of the factions and how they relate to each other. It covers legal jurisdiction as the protagonist is a police force detective. It covers different types of equipment. It has a space elevator in parts of the story and goes into some detail on it. It did a little on hacking, but more about who would do it than a first person perspective. There is no magic. :) The fact that there is no magic, really makes me want to see an Android RPG. I am really hoping that since this has been added to DriveThruRPG that a bunch of source books are coming. I like ShadowRun, but would like to see this genre without magic also....

A Girl and Her Monster (Rune Breaker, #1)

A Girl and Her Monster (Rune Breaker, #1) The story didn't grab me right away, I was unable to finish it. Part of the reason was the awkward formatting on my ebook reader (kobo). This of course may not be everyone's issue. I will go back and try and finish it when I have some time.

Chocolate Chocolate Moons

Chocolate Chocolate Moons Book Reviews posted below. Kirkus Review said the book was "delightful." SAN FRANCISCO BOOK REVIEW In this futuristic story of gourmet food and shady interplanetary business deals, Molly Marbles seeks to find her place in the world, or rather, in the solar system. Molly is an overweight Earth woman in a universe that prizes the tall, thin figures of those born and raised on low-gravity heavenly bodies, such as Mars. Everything changes for her when she begins college on the Moon. She no longer worries about dieting, and she can begin to focus on her passion for cooking and eating delicacies, such as duck breast in a coriander fig sauce. She and her husband suddenly find themselves penniless and forced to move to Mars, where nearly everyone is thin and they only eat food supplements, if they eat anything at all. Molly once again finds herself on the outside looking in, but when she takes a job in security at Culinary Institute of Mars, home of the Candy Universe, Molly finds her n...

Sons of Moriarty and More Stories of Sherlock Holmes
by Eddy W.
Publisher: F+W Media
Date Added: 04/22/2015 08:03:00
Sons of Moriarty and More Stories of Sherlock Holmes This is tough, because I enjoy Loren Estleman's work on other Holmes pastiches. However, this is a decidedly mixed anthology. It mixes such a wide variety of styles that it's hard to appreciate them all. The titular novella isn't bad, but the title is a bit misleading, as Holmes fights the Mafia instead of Moriarty's organization (although there's a twist at the end). All in all, it's not a bad anthology -- I did quite enjoy it -- but $10 might be a bit much knowing that you'll probably only enjoy a handful of the offerings within....

The Game of Games
by Clay S.
Publisher: Cactus Games
Date Added: 04/18/2015 19:36:37
The Game of Games The length was right for the price, but once past that this lacks quality. Really poor as a choose-your-path adventure. Choices end up not being choices at all with an option being selected from 2 only to be sent to the choice not selected from the previous paragraph. The dice rolls are nearly pointless, having seemingly 3 or more options but really there are only two: 'game over' or continue on to the same specific page. All this adds up to a rather linear story trying to have an illusion of choice....

The Fallen World Chronicle Anthology
by Michael B.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 04/15/2015 04:50:33
The Fallen World Chronicle Anthology All the stories are well written and give some valuable insight into how different mages approach magic. The game emphasizes the use of symbolism, and the stories manage to emulate that aspect well. Some of these stories maybe incomprehensible if you are not familiar with the jargon and setting of the game. While one of them ("The Wheel") has no clear connection to Mage at all. But the shining diamond in this anthology is "The Storyteller" by rick Chilliot. I read this story in "Intruders: Encounters With the Abyss" and it hit me right in the gut. The years did not dull that edge. This story is creepy and disturbing in just the right ways. It presents a terrifying antagonist that cannot be beaten by conventional means. And demonstrates how knowledge and symbols are a Mage's greatest weapons....

Shadowrun: DocWagon 19
by robert l.

Date Added: 04/05/2015 10:45:25
Shadowrun: DocWagon 19 I must admit that this story was better than I thought it would be. While being shorter in length than many other shadowrun books. It does not diminish the fact that it is a good story. The plot was well thought out, compelling and engaging. While the author well detailed his/her story, I could only give it 4 stars because they forgot to put in at the end to add it "I would have gotten away with it if it was not for those mettling kids!!" An old scooby doo reference. Read he story and you will understand. Humor aside, final review; good, well detailed, but short and in too much of a hurry to end it. So the final tally 4 stars, definetly worth the $3.99 compared to other $8.99 shadowrun books of lesser quality!...

Oath of the Dead (fiction)

Oath of the Dead (fiction) Very exciting tale, that went in a different direction than I expected. RPGs that are supported by fiction have always held a special place in my heart as they reveal the living side of the games and supplements they represent. I feel like I'm very acquainted now with Clave , the knightly order, and the tribe presented in this tale. It felt like i was immersed in an episodic slice of the daily struggles in this game world and i haven't even had a chance to read the rule book yet, which I will read next. Great Tale not too long, not too short, but well made and a great introduction for me to this game system/universe! I hope to see more!...

The Strange Cases of Rudolph Pearson This was surprisingly well written. I enjoyed it tremendously. Just the right blend of Cthulhu mythos and mystery, with some very decent character development.

Calidar, In Stranger Skies Ring Side Report- RPG Review of Calidar: In Strange Skies Originally posted at www.throatpunchgames.com, a new idea everyday! Product- Calidar: In Strange Skies System- Pathfinder Producer- Calidar Publishing Price- $10 here http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/133973/Calidar-In-Strang-
er-Skies TL; DR- How about some Spelljammer in Pathfinder? 90% Basics- Set sail for the first star on the right! Calidar is a setting for a universe focusing on flying sky ships that sail between planets with most of the focus on the world of Calidar. While the book goes small enough to detail the kingdom of Meryath on Calidar, the book also has enough universe detail to give any game master enough ideas for how to run the universe. Let's break this book down into its parts. Mechanics or Crunch- This is not a crunch book, but it also doesn't want to be. Any book that starts with 45 pages of story to introduce the world via fiction wants you to get the world feeling first before even con...
