The Anime Hack
by Michael H.
Publisher: Okumarts Games
Date Added: 07/23/2016 12:35:14
The Anime Hack New to the Black Hack family of games, I bought this as my first choice. The Anime/Manga type of game is covered well in other books, but most often with a bewildering array of options and choices for both gms and other players. The Anime Hack avoids this trap rather nicely by boiling down the tropes and ideas just as the game engine is boiled down by the rule set the author used. D20 roll-under is not a new concept, but it is nice to see it handled effectively and clearly written as well. I particularly like the classes used for this game, and I am not disapointed that one of those posted on Facebook got me to buy the book. I even found myself dreaming up scenarios for the game that made me write them down before being able to sleep. To sum up my review: Buy it. Plan it. Play it....

The Anime Hack A nice Black Hat setting book, it really gives off what I would expect for a cliche anime vibe (and that's a good thing in my opinion). That being said, it could still use some polishing here and there. For example, there is an error in the Monster Collector class. The first special feature is a duplicate of the Mecha Jockey's special feature, meaning the first special feature of the Monster Collector does not currently exist.

Princess Lucinda's guide to world domination!
by Roderick Y.
Publisher: Channel M Publishing
Date Added: 07/09/2016 17:00:55
Princess Lucinda's guide to world domination! Before purchase, the preview is misleading because it only provides a single page of sample art, the cover. This cover artwork is of much higher quality than the remainder of the book, and the "humour" of this guide is tedious, at best. The ideas contained here would be better served as part of a larger narrative, perhaps with Lucinda describing possible plans to her friends.

BattleTech: Embers of War

BattleTech: Embers of War Excelllent book, it's nice to see a novel where no one really wins, except the bad guys and it still costs them badly.

CAL1 Calidar, In Stranger Skies Fantastic illustrations and maps. great start on a new world in the vein of The Princess Ark series in old Dragon magazines. I really look forward to future publications. I also love the fact it is generally system agnostic.

Scars: An Earthdawn Novel
by Niels S.
Publisher: FASA
Date Added: 06/18/2016 18:42:21
Scars: An Earthdawn Novel The story is nicely written though the ending is a bit arupt. It offers a nice view into the lands of Barsaive and how a Horror would torment one of its victims. Since this is the first of three (SR: Worlds without Ends is the third) it really begs for the second, Little Treasures, to be released in English. Please make it happen!

BattleTech: Chaos Born (Book One of the Chaos Irregulars)

BattleTech: Chaos Born (Book One of the Chaos Irregulars) I won't be purchasing book two; book one is tripe, the same old crap and, though I am normally a BattleTech aficianado, I am having great difficulty getting through the first few story bits. I've read twenty pages since I purchased it, and had to convert it to something I could use, as not everyone uses mobi or epub documents, inconsiderate, and I can't bring myself to desire to read it unless I have absolutely nothing else to do. It's amazing to me a project as poorly conceived as this one can be published, when a work nearly twenty years in the making, and which references everything in the BattleTech universe the way it should be, to establish the work within that universe, can't see the light of day. Ludicrous....

BattleTech: Isle of the Blessed Excellent compilation novel, one of the best I've read from the BattleTech universe in a long time. I like the conflicting view points of the Fed and Wobbies forces.

Oath of the Dead (fiction)
by Michael H.
Publisher: DwD Studios
Date Added: 05/17/2016 19:47:30
Oath of the Dead (fiction) The short story takes a brief glance into the world of BareBones Fantasy's 'Karanak Kingdoms' setting. In its 24 pages gives me nothing I did not enjoy. The writing style is accessable and fun, without the kind of shorthand jargon that so easily can be taken for granted in the fantasy gaming community. The only thing really wrong with it is that I now want to know the rest of the adventure and just what happens to the people in the story, which is really quite easy to imagine just how to run in a game of my own. I am prone to leaving a lot of five star reviews, as when I like something well enough to review it, I am usually that pleased wirth it. This story stands well in that esteemable company....

Random Solo Adventure: Jungle Quest Not much of a story and quite repetetive. The art is appropriate to the theme, but the style is inconsistent.

Blaster Squad #1 Terror on the Moon Wow! This tightly written novella provides the pulse pounding adventures of mercenaries in the 43rd century.

Sidekicks

Publisher: 53rd Street Publishing
Date Added: 04/21/2016 02:19:39
Sidekicks This barely qualifies as a short story. It's not the writing (which is at best shakey), the editing (which is nonexistant), or the plot (also nonexistant). It's that this is a remarkably short story that has just enough pages to contain some dialogue, deux ex machina and scant homoerotic subtext whereas the abstract reads like it would be a novella or novel. There is nothing in this SKU's description that identifies it as a short story, which I would have preferred knowing going into the story and probably would have deterred me from purchasing....

BattleTech: Ghost Bear's Lament (Part One)
by Alex E.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs

BattleTech: Ghost Bear's Lament (Part One) Having followed battletech for thirty years I was looking forward to reading a new book about ghost bears on my kindle. I am happy to support new works and thought the price was good for an electronic version. Suffice to say, I was deeply dissapointed to find it is not a novel. Even calling it a novella is pushing it. This is a short story when compared to classic battletech books and should be made clear as such in the blurb. I would have been far happier if I was aware that the part one and part two I am purchasing, combined, would still be pressed to be as long as one of the legends novels. It is for this reason I gave the bad review....
