Steampunk Emporium
by Flames R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: F+W Media
Date Added: 03/13/2014 09:10:17
Steampunk Emporium Steampunk Emporium offers five main themes for jewelry-making: Atlantis Expedition, Zeppelin Pirate Attack!, Absinthe Fairy Interlude, Jurassic Valley Exploration, and Clockwork Tea Party. Within each of these categories, there are four or five projects ranging from mixed media designs to wirework. The skills required to make each piece also vary. For example, the Azure Cog Earrings employ simpler wireworking techniques than the Adventurer’s Fob Watch, which definitely necessitates a familiarity with polymer clay. Anyone who's a fan of steampunk or is involved in costuming would benefit from this book. For the average beader, however, the projects are a little more involved and the components required are not inexpensive. The plus side is that every piece is unique and each step is outlined with a photo. The resources are great as well. Just keep in mind that the digital functionality of the PDF isn’t optimal; the bookmarks are on the chapter level which makes navigation a little c...

Texter
by Ria H.
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment

Texter This is a really quick read, but it's just the right length, I think. I like the format; the texts seem natural, right down to cursing the autocorrect and that one person who insists on abbreviating everything. I really liked the way that as the texts progressed, you got a sense of what was going on underneath it all. In a way, I thought the implications were actually better than the reveal at the end, and the ending did seem a little sudden to me. It did all fit together really well, so I might just be nitpicking. All in all, excellent story, quick read, and I highly recommend....

The God-Machine Chronicle Anthology
by Patricia W.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 03/10/2014 18:48:23
The God-Machine Chronicle Anthology To begin with: I love the God-Machine setting and the main Chronicle book has continued to inspire me. The God-Machine Chronicle Anthology didn't inspire me as much as I'd hoped, but I did like most of the book. There's a good assortment of stories and it's nice to have the previously published fiction gathered in one place to view as a whole. The layout is attractive enough, and consistent. Some highlights: Road Gospel and Residents brought Damnation City to mind in a good way, giving specific examples of how statistics actually play out in a place. Stories Uncle Don Told Me reminded me of Stephen King pleasantly, with the kind of entertaining sit-down-and-listen-to-character that can be difficult to pull off. Along with M.R.E., it brought the figure of the veteran into horror (and with respect), something that I appreciate. A couple of issues: A few stories, such as Prodigal and Quality of Life, took prototypical movie-style situations and didn't really do anything new wit...

Oath of the Dead (fiction)
by matthew j.
Publisher: DwD Studios
Date Added: 03/04/2014 20:29:46
Oath of the Dead (fiction) This is a quick little story that drops us right into the action. Author Eric Johnson does a great job giving us just enough information to grab hold of our interest without bogging us down in needless details. The story is fast paced, includes a bit of mystery and tension and gives us a few details of the Keranak Kingdoms without becoming a lexicon. Of the few characters that are introduced, the old knight is excellently written and I finished the story wanting to know more about the character. The main female lead is interesting as well, but in something this short there is just not enough room to give us much more. Overall, I enjoyed this story and wish there was more. For the price ($1.99), this is a great diversion for someone that likes fantasy and enjoys reading. Eric is clear, well written and easy to digest. I would recommend this story and look forward to reading more....

Penny Palabras: Episode 01

Publisher: Hollow Scene

Penny Palabras: Episode 01 Penny Palabras Staff: Kelly Matten and Waker farrell Overview: Wonderful creepy pasta in comic form. Review: Ok so today’s main dish is Penny Palabras, a supernatural story by James B Willard and Patrick K Beavers. We are given a brief introduction that describes a girl (Penny) who is terrorized by a paranormal entity known as “the straw man” and she seeks to find a way to free herself from him. It’s a pretty novel concept off the bat and I’m psyched to get into it! Lets dive into, Penny Palabras (Episode One: The Spectacular Revolver). Let’s start with the visuals. The art is a drag grayscale that uses a lot of negative space and rough lines. It’s very fitting with the theme and is a stylistic choices rather than a demonstration of the limits of the artist. Mix that with the almost handwritten typography and you have a wonderful visual presentation. There are a few limits brought on by the art style and things I wished they had find a way around (some of the dark gre...

Accursed: Patchwork
by Mikael H.
Publisher: Melior Via
Date Added: 02/19/2014 15:11:05
Accursed: Patchwork Not an aspirant for the Nobel prize this is still a compelling novella that is to short. The the first three quarters moves along with a good and steady pace, but the end feels rushed and... stitched on. It really reads like a presentation of the game, which may annoys some and is a bit pricy for the page count, which annoys me.

Lovecraft Country
by Keith M.
Publisher: RPGnet
Date Added: 02/19/2014 04:01:20
Lovecraft Country A nice moody piece and I do wonder what the main character will discover, but at the same time the narration tended to distance me from the story instead of pulling me in. The art is okay.

Dresden Files RPG: Our World

Dresden Files RPG: Our World http://www.teilzeithelden.de/2014/02/19/rezension-dresden-fi-
les-our-world/ Der Schwesterband zu Dresden Files – Your Story befasst sich mit den Kreaturen des Dresdenverse. Während die Regeln und das Feeling der Welt im ersten Band etabliert wurden, konzentriert sich Our World auf die Organisationen und Personen der Romanwelt der Dresden Files Romane. Inhalt Der Band wirkt auf den ersten Eindruck durchaus mächtig: 270 Seiten stark verspricht er, uns in die Welt von Harry Dresden zu entführen. Nach einer einleitenden Kurzgeschichte stürzen wir uns direkt ins politische Chaos. Auf einem Dutzend Seiten stellt uns Evil Hat Productions die herrschenden Fraktionen, ihre Ziele und aktuellen Konflikte vor. Da in der Romanreihe viele Konflikte und noch mehr unterschiedliche Fraktionen eingeführt wurden, beschränkt sich die Vorstellungen auf ein bloßes Minimum. Viele Details werden entweder direkt ausgelassen oder nur in wenigen Worten erläutert. Das reicht aus, um sich ein grobes Bil...

Tales from the Ninth World NO Spoilers here. :) Great teasers, but very short. It makes me want to find out what happens to the characters. I hope they make full length novels. So I give the writing and uniqueness 5stars and the length 3stars. Round it off to 4.

Mercy

Mercy To be honest, I never made by the first chapter of this book. I may pick it up a day when I have no other book in the pile of unread stuff, and the weather is lousy. The chapter I read was quite blandly written and mostly sounded as a excuse for American war atrocities in Vietnam. So until I have nothing better to do I dropped this...

Exquisite Replicas

Exquisite Replicas You didn’t notice at first. That can of pop seemed a little ‘wrong’ somehow, but you put it down to a new packaging design and a different recipe or something. Then you noticed that someone appeared to have swapped their chair for yours at the office, but that coffee stain on the seat where you nearly did yourself a nasty injury was still there. It looked – and felt – like the same chair, but you knew, deep down inside, that it wasn’t. After that, you started to notice more and more of these things, and even people. The mailman, whose name you’d never learned, but who you’d often swapped pleasantries with about last night’s game. He wasn’t replaced by a new mailman; he looked the same; he still swapped friendly insults about your team, and even told the same story about how he’d tried out for his team but that knee injury from his early school years had put paid to his chances. He had the same memories as the mailman, put it just wasn’t really him. They (whoever they were) had replaced...

The Amber Monolith (Numenera Fiction)
by Alexander L. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Monte Cook Games
Date Added: 02/09/2014 12:09:26
The Amber Monolith (Numenera Fiction) This is, word for word, the same piece of fiction that starts off the Numenera Core Rulebook. It tells the story of a man named Calaval who would become the founder of The Order of Truth and the most famous Aeon Priest of them all. This story takes place before he becomes an Aeon Priest however and tells of his experiences exploring the Amber Monolith. The Amber Monolith is one of the great mysteries of the Ninth World, as well as one of its most recognizable. The story is a complex, compe3lling and sometimes sad tale that really highlights how different the Ninth World is from the Earth we currently live on. It's a wonderful read and it's great to see that Monte Cook games has made this free to everyone. The Amber Monolith is a great way to see what Numenera is all about without having to think about rules, stats or mechanics. Since it's free, you might as well download this and see if it tempts you into a further exploration of the Ninth World....

W20 Cookbook

W20 Cookbook Originally published at: http://diehardgamefan.com/2013/12/27/book-review-w20-cookboo-
k-werewolf-the-apocalypse-20th-anniversary-edition/ Yes, you read the name of this review right. They’ve actually released a Werewolf: The Apocalypse Cookbook. I know when I told Mark (the DHGF staffer who loves W:TA more than any other tabletop game) what I was reviewing (and had received thanks to being a Kickstarter backer for W20) his reaction was, “A… what. How does that even work?” I have to admit, that was probably everyone’s first thought when this one time joke was announced as an actual release. After all, when you think of werewolves you probably think of them eating wild animals raw in the forest or devouring some person. Printing a cookbook of “Kill the stag with your bare claws and teeth and devour it right there” or giving recipes on “How to Cook Man” would probably not be well received by too many people. Plus you know, describing how to debone a small child could get OPP in some leg...

W20 Cookbook I truly love this as a cookbook and as a W20 addition. The peanut and chicken curry recipe has been a hit at my house and the White Howler's Venison with Blackberry Sauce recipe is next on the list to try. I also like the inclusion of Damper Bread for the Bunyip tribe, having spent a month in the outback of Australia. Is it a good cookbook? Yes. Is the flavor text for each tribe awesome? Most certainly. Should you pick up this book? /rollwillpowertoresist
