Publisher: Esoteric Order of Publishing
Date Added: 10/10/2014 18:40:33
Littlest Lovecraft: The Dunwich Horror Littlest Lovecraft has a charming take on the HP Lovecraft mythos and The Dunwich Horror is a great addition to the genre. Quikry drawings and engaging rhymes make this a must for Lovecraft fans.

Calidar, In Stranger Skies

Calidar, In Stranger Skies Calidar, In Stranger Skies is the latest gaming product from former TSR writer Bruce Heard. If you have been on the internet or follow any of the news surrounding Kickstarter or Mystara then you should have certainly heard about Bruce and Calidar. If not here are two brief introductions: http://bruce-heard.blogspot.com/p/a-word-abo-
ut-calidar.html http://bruce-heard.blogspot.com/p/where-can-
-i-get-calidar.html Calidar is exactly what I expected it to be. Thankfully I expected it to be awesome. It is a real treat reading this. In a sea of "grim dark" settings Calidar brings back magic, fantasy and adventure to "D&D" and any game you care to use it with. But that is getting ahead myself. This book is designed for Pathfinder, at least is says so on the cover, but please do not let that stop you from using this with any other "D&D"-like game/system you own or play. In the majority of the book is system neutral. The book is even a fair amount setting neutral, which might s...

Shadowrun: Nothing Personal (Enhanced Fiction)
by John L.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 10/03/2014 17:50:00
Shadowrun: Nothing Personal (Enhanced Fiction) Good story, was hoping for a little more stuff, however. The heavy roto-drone was nice, but that was it. (beside the character stats) Probably a stupid criticism, but the last enhanced fiction I bought (Sail Away, Sweet Sister) had a couple of spells and other things. It was kind of like buying a WoW pet, but much cheaper. Despite my minor complaining, it was well worth the $1.99 price!

Actual Factual: Dracula - A Compendium of Vampires
by Timothy B. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Scaldcrow Games
Date Added: 10/02/2014 13:41:10
Actual Factual: Dracula - A Compendium of Vampires Actual Factual: Dracula - A Compendium of Vampires is an unassuming book. The cover is stock art (I am guessing, not sure) and the preview is text with a small amount of art. That and the $40 price tag (sale price $18) might scare some people off. That would be a mistake. Inside are 472 pages of detailed vampire types from all over the world. In this book we are given a basic overview of vampires (aka the stuff everyone knows) and then we move quickly into the relationship between Vlad the Impaler and Vampires. I will honestly say that this section, while entertaining seems tacked on. The book would have been fine without it, but is likely better with it. Next we get into the heart of this book. The Compendium of Vampires. The A to Z section detail vampires from around the world and not only represents the bulk of the book (340+ pages), but also the bulk of the research. Each entry contains the name of the vampire, pronunciation and translation of the name. Also li...

The Sherlock Holmes Megapack: 25 Modern Tales by Masters
by Eddy W.
Publisher: Wildside Press
Date Added: 10/01/2014 18:15:47
The Sherlock Holmes Megapack: 25 Modern Tales by Masters It has an uninspiring title, but this is a massive anthology of Sherlock Holmes stories -- 25 in total. Most people don't realize that many modern Holmes anthologies usually have a theme or a flavor, such as stories that attempt to accurate evoke the original Doyle voice or Holmes stories that involve the supernatural. These are a grab-bag of stories ranging from very well-researched and faithful pastiches to stories of Holmes travelling through time. With many anthologies there are always some stories that hit or miss with the reader, but that's especially true with this. If you can't get behind the concept of, say, an investigation into a cult of readers of bad Holmes pastiches, some of the stories won't resonate with you. But with nearly 600 pages of material, odds are you'll find more hits than misses with this collection....

Calidar, In Stranger Skies

Calidar, In Stranger Skies Hier haben wir es mit einem RPG zu tun, dass mit Sicherheit zu den Besten zählt was in den letzten Jahren das Licht der Welt erblickt hat. Uns erwartet eine neue faszinierende Welt mit fliegen Schiffen, unsterblichen Helden (ja auch Spieler Char.), großartige Karten und eine Geschichte die mit viel Liebe ins Leben gerufen wurde. Weiters ist der Author (Bruce Heard) seinem "alten Stil" treu geblieben, den viele Menschen schon aus seiner Zeit bei TSR geliebt haben. Was meine ich damit? Das erste Drittel des Buches besteht aus einem Roman, durch den wir sehr viel über die Welt, Götter, Magie uvm. erfahren. All dies ohne ein bisschen langweilig oder langwierig zu wirken. Praktisch eine Geschichte lesen und man hat den Hintergrund der Welt einfach so nebenbei intus. Der Rest des Buches setzt sich aus Hintergrund der Welt, Rassen, Kulturen, Geschichte, Karten, Deckpläne von fliegenden Schiffen und einen kleinen Teil aus Regeln (Pathfinder) zusammen. Wichtig zu sagen ist, dass wir hier ...

The Dictionary of Made-Up Languages
by David E S.
Publisher: F+W Media
Date Added: 09/26/2014 22:32:49
The Dictionary of Made-Up Languages It just didn't work for me. There is a number of short sections on particular languages, both real (actually having an existing vocabulary and grammar) and those vaguely referred in fictional works. The descriptions give a handful of vocabulary and often point out trivial features, like when one language is represented in the fictional source, it's written as all caps; since it's alien, likely the Latin script is not its native script. Deeper issues and any real feel for the language is left out. The bibliographic references are generally unhelpful; every single one of Tolkien's languages mentions basically everything he wrote, in a verbatim repeated block, instead of pointing to the relevant texts on the language at hand. Klingon mentions every series and movie by name, instead of calling out the episodes and movies that actually use the language. That's nicer then Kryptonian; searching the Superman comic books, movies and TV series for details is a daunting task, made no easier by th...

Calidar, In Stranger Skies

Publisher: Calidar Publishing

Calidar, In Stranger Skies Got the PDF, skimmed through the book. Here's my impression - and mind you, that I, as a paying customer, never particularly care if my verdict displeases, really, anyone. To see where I am coming from, I have a preference for TSR-era D&D, with the best publications of the last few years being FFG's Dawnforge, Green Ronin's Black Company Campaign Setting, and the DCC RPG. The kickstarter for Calidar, I thought could have been more elaborated, and the advanced options didn't appeal to me. From a first glance, I also think the book is rather short compared to many other actual publications; maybe, inserting the *supporter bonus content* into the actual book would have been a good idea in that regard. About the ship maps, I am pretty divided; they are pretty fugly, quite frankly, with the blue background, and all, but seem to be pretty useful for actual play, which is something most modern rpg publishers notoriously seem to forget. My overall impression of the book, and that migh...

BattleTech: Isle of the Blessed

BattleTech: Isle of the Blessed Not a native English Speaker - so i hardly can say something about the narrative style. But the story is great, it was a thrilling read. No typical good vs bad - no superheros - only humans that fight and die for the right reason - and both sides have good reasons to keep fighting.

Strangeness in the Proportion
by Josh L.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 09/24/2014 15:21:56
Strangeness in the Proportion I cannot quite determine how, in it's entirety, this book has so quickly taken a hold on me. During its original run on White Wolf's website, I was lucky enough to come across it, and even then, I felt there was something special about it; there was something unique to the work that just seemed to pull at my heart and soul. However, as the story goes, awaiting new chapters, I grew lax in my reading, and with the exception of the occasional mention in the back of my mind (perhaps a Corbie's whisper?), I forgot about "Strangeness in the Proportion." Jump ahead over a year, and the time came for a Christmas gift. As if on cue, the whisper came again, reminding me of the story's existence, and lo and behold, a printed copy was available in addition to the ebook. With that decided, the book soon came in and the gift was delivered with much merriment. All I remained with was the ebook, and figuring the time was now right, I dove back into the World of Darkness. It shames me that it took ...

Flesh Welder Audiobook
by Crystal M.
Publisher: Macabre Ink Digital
Date Added: 09/22/2014 21:37:27
Flesh Welder Audiobook The FleshWelder is a short story based in an apocalyptic world, where fear and violence are used equally to control what is left of the living population. We meet a doctor who has an ability to repair limbs and body parts, taking pieces of the dead to heal the living. He buys these parts off scavengers, trading basic supplies such as canned meat or bullets for them. The other character is The General Pain, a violent man who will rape, kill and plunder whatever he wants. The two characters meet when the General has most of his body burned and damaged from a bomb. After the FleshWelder repairs his broken body, the General walks out without payment. The General pushes himself too far, and the FleshWelder and his nurse take their revenge on the cruel man and his army.  The story itself reads very much like a western. The descriptions and language used are strong and gritty, matching the world in which they live. How this doctor becomes the FleshWelder is somewhat of a mystery, lea...

Calidar, In Stranger Skies
by Roberto M.
Publisher: Calidar Publishing
Date Added: 09/21/2014 11:22:05
Calidar, In Stranger Skies Bruce Heard has crafted a fun and interesting campaign world that pays homage to the world he helped define during his tenure in TSR and his famous column in Dragon magazine, while introducing us to his new World of Calidar full of adventure, mysteries and, I say it again because it bears repeating, fun! If you are a fan of the Gazetteer series (which is available here in Drive Trhu RPG as well) and The Voyage of the Princess Ark articles and eventual box set (Champions of Mystara) , there is a lot of what made those fun in this book. Sky ships, exploration, adventure. From the tone to the maps, there is a clear inspiration in the past, but Heard has spread his wings and brought us a new setting with conflicts, adventure possibilities and many new tantalizing secrets that makes Calidar more than a nostalgia trip. This is a new campaign sure to satisfy fans, old and new. The PDF is great, fully bookmarked, with terrific layout and the maps, the maps are just awesome and really useful...

Inherit the Earth

Inherit the Earth Pretty interesting collection of short stories. Two of them worth reading: (1) "The Treatment of Dr. Ebrhardt" by Stefan Petrucha, (2) "Unusual Suspects" by Richard Lee Byers. The rest i just don't understand. While "The treatment" has unusual plot and characters; and "Unusual Suspects" - classical 'close room' detective puzzle in Vamps-vs-Hunter wrapping, the rest of the book has nothing entertaining. Also .PDF file has this 'page order' issue: after 230 you have 233, then 232, then 231, and then 234. First thought - i have misprint something, but discovered it wasn't my printer's fault. Weird....

On a Black Tide

On a Black Tide The book was interesting however i am not interested in playing the villain in adventures. The writing style was superb and I would rate the descriptions as excellent, but I am rating the product as bad for the direction of the story. Blood thirsty homicidal and driven to murder his way up the ladder to success all aptly describe the main character. Being evil is not fun.
