Alice and Dorothy FREE SAMPLER
by Heather B.
Publisher: Northern Frights Publishing
Date Added: 01/10/2014 18:36:47
Alice and Dorothy FREE SAMPLER I liked the sound of this from the blurb but it didn't live up to the possibilities The full book may do better at living up to the idea but the sampler did not show enough potential for me to bother with the full book. The constant refernces to sex also got up my nose, but that may just have been the mood I was in.

The Return of SANTIAGO (Novel)
by Ratimir I.
Publisher: EN Publishing
Date Added: 01/09/2014 18:15:25
The Return of SANTIAGO (Novel) It's a classic Resnick space western. If you know what that means, then you've got a good idea what you're in for. If you don't, then I STRONGLY recommend reading Santiago first (for fairly obvious reasons, this book contains massive spoilers for the original). Return doesn't quite measure up to the original Santiago, but is still an excellent read, packed with the larger than life personalities that populate Resnick's Inner Frontier, but a few of them come across as repeats of earlier characters. This is clearly deliberate in the case of Dante, who seeks to carry on Black Orpheus' work, but Tyrranosaur Bailey comes across in some ways as a repeat of Manmountain Bates, and Waltzing Matilda's introduction bears quite a resemblence to Mouse's in Oracle. For me the biggest frustration was inadequate proof-reading. I lost count of the typos: a couple of worlds get their names misspelled, a character mentions the Democracy covering "50,000 words", etc. Ten years since publication, these s...

Roll Them Bones
by Neil S.
Publisher: Hyacinth Games
Date Added: 01/09/2014 15:19:24
Roll Them Bones Quick look into the drama of the Stakers life. Harsh conditions make some hard, others give in to their weakness. Stakers take care of each other as that is their strength in this brutal world. Quick read, put it on my phone and read it on the go. Good inspiration should you choose to play the game.

Deadlands Dime Novel 01: Perdition's Daughter
by jeffrey v.
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
Date Added: 01/05/2014 19:13:25
Deadlands Dime Novel 01: Perdition's Daughter I liked it and was disappointed at the same time. I was looking for a supernatural western to read when this series popped up. We are given ex-Union soldier and now gun-slinger, Ronan Lynch, who is hired, along with others, to find a man’s son who has disappeared to join a church-cult run by a suspected witch. Ronan is killed only to reappear out of nowhere at the conclusion of the story with no explanation. The final line being: “to be continued.” Yes, it is a hook to buy the next in the series but I feel cheated in a way. I know nothing more about how Ronan becomes the feared supernatural bounty hunter badass he was advertised to be. I signed up expecting to find out this guy’s origin, and if I like what I read to continue on with his further adventures. What I get his Ronan getting killed off before anything even remotely “supernatural” happens. The bulk of the story continues about his companions on a grand adventure where they eventually find the son and take down the witch. ...

Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs, Vol. 2
by Brian F. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Nevermet Press
Date Added: 01/04/2014 16:12:01
Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs, Vol. 2 When I reviewed Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs, Volume 1 back in October 2009, I felt it was a monumental and worthwhile compilation of game material from around the blogosphere. Jonathan Jacobs somehow managed to do everything from curating the articles to having the book printed and available. The result was a book that managed to provide players and gamemasters, both new and old, more inspiration than you could shake a stick at. With Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs, Volume 2 (OGTv2), Jacobs managed to get much more help with nearly every part of the process – from nominating material to editing, art, and so on. He even managed to get sponsors to help foot the bill to pay for part of the publishing effort so it wasn’t all out of his wallet. To avoid any misconceptions, I helped with a couple of parts of the process of OGTv2. I worked as a peer reviewer and contributed some funds to help get the book printed. But even with my he...

W20 Cookbook Vampire doesn't have anything on Werewolf when it comes to fan support. And this proves it. Seeing some of the end results and the dishes looks great. Would like to see this in either Iron Chef America or Dinner Impossible.

versary-edition/ It’s been a very good year for gaming fiction anthologies, even though full fledged gaming novels (like The Sundering series) have been a bit lackluster. Shadowrun Returns, The Strix Chronicle Anthology and Tales From the Ninth World have all been pretty solid. Now, Werewolf: the Apocalypse gets its own anthology to boot. I’ll admit, Rites of Renown has me wishing for a V:TM fiction anthology, but this particular book came about only because of the abundance of funds raised in the W:TA 20th Anniversary Edition Kickstarter. There are nineteen stories contained in this collection by as many authors, which is a lot compared to other White Wolf/Onyx Path anthologies. Like any anthology, the quality of the pieces are all over the place, from so bad I’d be embarrassed to be the person who approved the publication of the piece to wor...

KOBOLD Guide to Board Game Design

Publisher: Kobold Press

KOBOLD Guide to Board Game Design This book lies. You will note the five star rating for a good reason. The book claims to be about "Board Game Design" when in reallity it is so much more. It's about all games, from board to card to RPG. It discusses the core reasons for design and the main structures behind them. This doesn't focus on individual mechanics, but rather on the more fundamental, structural things. If you want to design any game, this is a godsend. As a roleplaying game designer, it blew me away.

Buffy RPG Revised Corebook
by Flames R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Eden Studios
Date Added: 12/25/2013 18:46:54
Buffy RPG Revised Corebook This is one of the prettiest and best written game books I’ve ever had the pleasure to come across. The book is full-color, and chock full of pictures and quotes from the series. What truly makes the book stand out is the writing style. CJ Carella and his crew have written something that looks less like a rulebook, and more like a transcript of someone talking about the TV show, and how a game system for Buffy would work if he could just design one. The book is almost as funny and irreverent as the show it draws from, making this book an easy read. Character Creation is a walk in the park. Even an inexperienced player can put together a Buffy character in about 15 minutes. There are two types of characters: Heroes and White Hats. Heroes get more points to play with in terms of attributes, skills, and qualities, and get 10 Drama Points (explained below), which cost more to buy with XP for them. White Hats aren’t as talented, but get 20 Drama Points to start, and they can buy more for...

Heralds of the Storm (Year of the Scarab Trilogy Book 1)
by Flames R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 12/25/2013 18:41:28
Heralds of the Storm (Year of the Scarab Trilogy Book 1) What would you do if you woke up one day and discovered that everything you thought was silly superstition and nonsense was real and you were the only thing standing between evil and the rest of Humanity? Thea Ghandour, the unlikely pot-smoking heroine who continuously laments her lack of a sex-life, and a less-than-intrepid and equally unlikely band of fellow Hunters have been trying to answer that question since they found each other. Heralds of the Storm opens on one of their self-imposed missions, just outside the lair of a vampire, one of “the greatest predators ever to walk the earth.” Don’t read Heralds looking for an introductory romp through the world of the Mummies, no matter what the back-cover blurb says. The story revolves around the conflict and manipulation between the Van Helsing Brigade (as Thea calls the group of Hunters), walking dead man Maxwell Carpenter and their mutual enemy, leaving the Mummy aspect largely unexplored and completely unexplained. Intentiona...

Dark Ages Clan Novel 10: Gangrel Jürgens armies under the sign of the Black Cross march out to conquer the east. Against them stand the vile Tzimisce ruled by the Voivode of all Voivodes: Count Vladimir Rustovitch. But not only those stand in the way of Jürgens men, between their home and the Voivodat lies Livonia, a fierce, primal territory ruled by Quarakh the Untamed and his horde of Gangrel. By his side there is Deverra, High-Priest of Telyavel and Tremere renegade. Jürgen sends out Alexander of Paris to propose a pact or slay Quarakh. But Alexander has different plans. With Quarakhs help he is about to subdue first the Tzimisce and Jürgen, then march against Paris to claim what is rightfully his. When Quarakh declares he is not interested Alexander decides to kill the barbarian, but has no knowledge of Deverra and her liege Telyavel what will give Quarakh a great advantage. A really interesting novel, especially the difference between the fierce and wild Gangrel and the “civilized” Ventrue conquerors. The ...

Kos City (Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting)
by Wayne W.
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
Date Added: 12/23/2013 12:20:07
Kos City (Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting) Kos City (Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting) is a well done generic city setting for any fantasy rpg setting. Kos City is set in a fantasy world much like our own, with a history much like our world from 2000 years ago. This book is in the line of Skirmisher Press Kos setting. Many more books are coming out and are already out for this setting, but this book can pretty much be put in any high fantasy setting, regardless of gaming system used. Set around a eastern Mediterranean center, this book centers on a city with a large number of business, public centers, and guilds that make up a city with a large number of humans, goblins and other fantasy races. Kos City is a generic setting. No specific system is used for npcs or other rules, but each npc is given enough of a write up that any GM could be able to write one up in moments. Each place , and there are about 70, has a detailed description, an npc or two and an adventure hook for GM to use for a game, or...

Tales from the Ninth World It is a nice anthology, the engagement with the tales is quite varied. I personally felt more immersed with the one written by Shanna, her characters are perhaps deeper. The stories are all interesting. For its price, it is highly recommended! It was a nice way to get into to the universe of the Ninth World. I am looking forward to play Numenera, though i am lacking partners... :D
