Haunted House
by Daniel B.
Publisher: Sonic Legends
Date Added: 06/09/2015 05:34:54
Haunted House I don't know what I'd use this for, as it is not really suitable for the ambience of a haunted house. It's more like the ambience of a haunted house full of dumb teens partying before they discover the horrible thing that caused the house to be considered "haunted", but it''s too loud and busy to suggest the atmosphere of a haunted house. More like Wednesday and Pugsley Addams grew up to be ravers than an investigation into a creepy house of fear and nightmares.

The Fallen World Chronicle Anthology

The Fallen World Chronicle Anthology I really enjoyed this selection of short stories. It is well priced and the stories themselves are well written and interesting. A special call-out to Rick Chilliot and his story called "The Storyteller." This story was fantastic and creepy and captured a real sense of horror.

Shadowrun: Borrowed Time

Shadowrun: Borrowed Time Originally posted at: http://diehardgamefan.com/2015/05/25/book-review-shadowrun-b-
orrowed-time/ Unlike a lot of tabletop games, Shadowrun has had a ton of fantastic fiction released for it. Whether you’re talking the original Robert N. Charrette trilogy, Tom Dowd’s Burning Bright, or many of the other books that came out of the FASA/TOR deal back in the early days of the game, you were usually guaranteed a good read. That hasn’t always been the case the past few years. The short pieces of fiction are almost always great. Pieces like Neat, Another Rainy Night, Sail Away, Sweet Sister, and The Vladivostok Gauntlet have all been top notch. The latest batch of novels however… let’s say they haven’t been as good as those released in the past. Hell on Water and Fire & Frost were not things I could recommend to anyone, for example. I’ve been afraid to pick up Crimson because I didn’t want to be hit with a third bad Shadowrun novel in a row. I skipped Dark Resonance for this reason as well ...

Doomed Slayers
by Denis M.
Publisher: JürgenWerks
Date Added: 05/21/2015 18:58:24
Doomed Slayers This clever setting provides the most plausible circumstances for there to be a class of adventurers within a fantasy world. It is written without system, but functions as a background or aspect for any system. Well worth the recommended price.

The Paradox Room
by Rob E.
Publisher: Monte Cook Games
Date Added: 05/18/2015 15:53:20
The Paradox Room Two good stories by the writers of The Strange RPG, Monte Cook and Bruce Cordell. The stories deal with Ardeyn and the Thunder Plains respectively, and hint at some of the rich background of their setting that they allude to but don't fully detail.

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

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) 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....
