Frostgrave - Tales of the Frozen City
by Bart B.
Publisher: Osprey Publishing
Date Added: 10/18/2015 18:40:30
Frostgrave - Tales of the Frozen City I purchased the rulebook last week, read it completely and got straight into this collection. The rulebook had little bits of thematic work, I found this collection really 'fleshed it out' and helped me understand the vision for Frostgrave. I chewed through the stories in one sitting, and enjoyed them. Being short stories, they were all about 'the twist in the tail' and they had some very clever twists. Well worth the price to help you 'get' Frostgrave.

Fantasy Landscapes These illustrations are really nice, the artist has done an excellent job. Note that the images are 2480 x 3508 pixels (A4, 300 DPI), but there's enough space at the top/bottom of each image that you can easily resize and crop them if you prefer US letter size.

Magical Bears in the Context of Contemporary Political Theory
by Andre C.
Publisher: Jenna Katerin Moran
Date Added: 10/04/2015 12:40:33
Magical Bears in the Context of Contemporary Political Theory I got this book on a whim, because the theme was something I thought I'd enjoy, and it became one of my favourite books this year. If the author had known me since childhood, and had decided to write a book specifically catering to my interests to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of our friendship, she wouldn't be able to write something I'd enjoy so much. The book is a collection of short stories. The theme of "Magical Bears in the Context of Contemporary Political Theory" is the alledged link, but I'd describe it as a book about really weird, funny or even stupid concepts developed very seriously until their breaking point. For instance, "What if Sailors (like from Sailor Moon) were U.S. senators?" or "What would the political systems of magical jelly bean animals be like?" You'd think those stories would be hilarious. And they are! When Jenna Katerin Moran decides to write a funny story, it's hilarious. She's witty and silly and bizarre. She'll commit wholeheartedly to an ...

Delta Green: Extraordinary Renditions
by David M.
Publisher: Arc Dream Publishing
Date Added: 10/03/2015 10:04:38
Delta Green: Extraordinary Renditions For those unfamiliar with Delta Green, I would say that they collect the bleakest, darkest, most soul-eroding windows into modern Lovecraftian horror. Unsanctioned tradecraft in a never ending war against the unimaginable horrors that lurk behind the corners of reality, trying to hold back the tide, one sanity breaking battle at a time. Needless to say, agents never survive unscathed, if they survive at all. "Extraordinary Renditions" is the fruit of the Kickstarter for the previous Delta Green story collection, "Tales From Failed Anatomies". The Kickstarter was so successful, that it gave birth to two story collections. "Tales From Failed Anatomies" was outstanding, but I have to say that "Extraordinary Renditions" felt even better. Or worse, if you are the characters held within its pages. With a massive collection of amazing writers like Adam Scott Glancy, Dennis Detwiller, Kenneth Hite, Greg Stolze, Shane Ivey, Cody Goodfellow, and more, each story gives us a glimpse to d...

Deadlands Noir: The Tenement Men Though this is listed as a game supplement, do not get suckered in. This is a short story, it has no gaming connection at all.

Deadlands: One Shot
by Daniel L.
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
Date Added: 09/26/2015 06:57:10
Deadlands: One Shot While I was aware of the Doomtown CCG and the Deadlands RPG back in the '90's this is my first product that I have purchased in the setting. As my introduction into the world it is both a satisfying comic and satisfying world guide. My desire to read more comics in the setting and to try the game is evidence of its' successful execution. The art is good, though some of the characters do look a like. The tone is enhanced by both the moodiness and vibrancy of the colors. The Horror and Western genres are simultaneously showcased by art that is both creepy and full of action. I very rarely find two different genres blended as seamlessly as they are here. From a technical standpoint the scan is decent but not without flaws. Some pages have white edges while others do not. There are some dialog boxes that are clipped by the edge of the page. It's a reasonable recreation of the original comic. Overall, I am excited about looking further into the setting and catalog....

Shadowrun: DocWagon 19
by Colin O.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 09/18/2015 13:06:24
Shadowrun: DocWagon 19 I am a big fan of Shadowrun and so I really enjoyed this book. Very much liked the different approach to telling the story as well as seeing things from the other side of the fence (Docwagon not the shadows). Might have been a couple of typos but nothing that stopped me enjoying the story.

Where the Deep Ones Are (Mini Mythos)
by Flames R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Atlas Games
Date Added: 09/17/2015 17:57:18
Where the Deep Ones Are (Mini Mythos) The classic children’s book “Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak has been parodied before, but rarely as successfully as in Ken Hite’s Where the Deep Ones Are. Ostensibly a childrens’ book, Deep Ones is a story of a boy who rebels and is banished to his room in punishment, subsequently discovering a hidden world that calls to him enchantingly. Instead of Max, we now have Bobby, a boy who loves to eat fish. He also wears a frog-like costume with several tentacles dangling from the face, and it’s mentioned more than once in the text that he has a cousin named Larry Marsh. This boy is well on his way to becoming a Deep One himself, which parallels the story of Shadow Over Innsmouth, on which the actual tale of Where the Deep Ones Are is partly based. Max travels in a boat on a magical river to Innsmouth, where he meets an old drunk that tries to warn him off. When Bobby mentions his cousin Larry Marsh the old man leaves, having “got skeert.” Bobby turns to the hotel for a m...

Tales of the Seven Dogs Society
by Flames R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Abstract Nova Entertainment
Date Added: 09/17/2015 17:52:51
Tales of the Seven Dogs Society Tales of the Seven Dogs Society is a collection of three short stories framed against the background of the Seven Dogs Society, the player group of Abstract Nova’s Aletheia RPG. If the game is unknown to you, I recommend taking a look at the reviews found at rpg.net, flamesrising.com and abstractnova.com, as they will reveal a great deal about the setting which I cannot go into here. The cover is one of Eric Lofgren’s typical pieces, showing an evil-looking man leering at the reader, with flames rising around him. The short stories give some useful ideas for an Aletheia GM, and (if you don’t mind the spoilers), for some good ideas on how a PC can be integrated into the team – Matt McElroy’s narrator, a former private eye, for example, is recruited after getting a name for himself as a missing persons expert on ‘weird’ cases. The stories also offer some useful suggestions as to how to run an investigation – from the point of view of the GM and the players alike. The three stories off...

Evil Ways
by Flames R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Rebellion Publishing Ltd
Date Added: 09/17/2015 17:48:51
Evil Ways Evil Ways is a suspenseful dark fantasy novel by Justin Gustainis. Black magic and occult investigators are mixed together skilfully creating a exciting plot. It’s a very entertaining book… so long as you don’t mind jarring geographic errors and odd attempts at dialect. The second book in the “Morris and Chastain” investigations, Evil Ways (published by Solaris Books) presents its protagonists with a problem: someone is killing children and stealing their organs, and this means dark magic is afoot, and a lot of it. Quincey Morris is an paranormal detective with skills in a variety of areas, including burglary; Libby Chastain is a white witch with experience in taking out some pretty nasty guys. When Morris gets roped in to help the FBI with their investigation, Libby joins in as well–with the slight complication that somebody is trying to kill her. Having never read Black Magic Woman, the first book in this series, I opened this book without much in the way of preconceived notion...

W20 The Poison Tree
by Petri W.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 09/14/2015 13:47:59
W20 The Poison Tree Very entertaining. Shows Shadow Lord politics in a somewhat unusual setting, and has nice plot twists -- it's almost a detective story in spots, though one where investigation mostly involves tearing things apart with tooth & claw. I liked the Savannah as shown in the story, quite atmospheric. Of course, there are cliches galore here, and some of the plot twists can be seen coming (but not all). The ending is a bit too much a "saved by a plot twist!" thing to my tastes, but... hell, I had a lot of fun reading this, and I think it captured the spirit of W:tA very nicely. So, recommended. Excellent summer reading....

Silent Knife
by Petri W.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 09/14/2015 13:39:26
Silent Knife Excellent debut novel. To be honest, I wasn't expecting anything this good, but was very happily surprised. While the female lead starts out as a bit of a cliche (hyper-competent vampire ninja, with dual katanas! :), she becomes much more interesting fast, as her past comes back to haunt her and several oddities in her fast promotion in vampiric politics slowly unravel. I liked how the book takes full advantage of Requiem's setting, as opposed to Masquerade; no more global vampiric monocultures and instead lots of local level "weird shit". In this case, interfaces with local mages, and some darker forces. The plot kept twisting and turning, and managed to surprise me a few times. Well done. :)...
