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 ...

Random Solo Adventure: Fantasy Dungeon

Random Solo Adventure: Fantasy Dungeon Bad spelling errors - ex. "loose" instead of 'lose' - and possessives where plurals are needed. Really needs to be carefully edited for these issues

W20 The Song of Unmaking It's the best Werewolf the Apocalypse fiction I ever read and I have read them all. Plot, main antgonist, plot twist, exciting combat scenes, excellent garou stories - it's all there. I want more.

The Illuminated Edda
by Mason C.
Publisher: Pendelhaven

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

Publisher: Incarnadine Press
Date Added: 04/15/2017 13:55:20
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.

Cthulhu 101 This little book with a huge font is great for a light romp through some dark territory. Not too bad, its references are a little dated, but still fun to read.

YOU: A Fiction
by Justin U.
Publisher: Greg Stolze
Date Added: 03/29/2017 13:05:02
YOU: A Fiction YOU: A Fiction is a second-person narrator story about you, a guy named Leo Evans who does your best to be a good servant. A necessary one. The story starts with you getting a library book stolen from you and then things escalate. There are weapons and photographers that use film (ptui digital!) to stop time and destroy bodies, love is commodified and there's a weird doppelganger made of mint. It's full of weirdness and relationships and weird relationships. I liked it. Greg Stolze is one of the creators of my favourite roleplaying game, Unknown Armies and *You* is set in that world. That gives the reader a bit of a grounding in the thoughts motivating some of the characters, but I think as a story it works better for a person who doesn't know the universe (I found some of the explanations a bit on the nose and would have appreciated a bit more vagueness about how things work since I know the rules, but whatevs). Good weird book. ...

100 Oddities for a Creepy Old House All of the "Oddities" offerings from Skirmisher are awesome. They give GM's great ideas for random strangenessa dn intrigue that can be injected into a game campaign. With some tweaking the oddities could even be adapted to an array of RPG settings. Highly recommended.

YOU: A Fiction
by Timothy C.
Publisher: Greg Stolze
Date Added: 03/16/2017 10:51:56
YOU: A Fiction This book hates you. You, personally, the reader. And yet, you will find yourself amused and engaged while the book insults your morals, your tastes, and your life choices. You will let the book indulge itself while it tells you a story of a fiasco about a collection of strange people doing ordinary things for unfathomable reasons, and sometimes doing extraordinary things for all-too-human reasons.
