Shadowed Earth (Core Setting Guide)
by Robert S.
Publisher: Mystical Throne Entertainment
Date Added: 02/15/2015 23:53:30
Shadowed Earth (Core Setting Guide) I finally got around to read through this setting book - 110 pages of pure setting information takes a while to get through. The book starts with a small introductory story that continuous along through each chapter. In fact the setting information IS the story as the character in the Preface narrates the history of planet Earth, starting at the Bronze Age and continuing all the way to the New Age (2053). It is an interesting setting, interweaving mythology and horror with our real world, changing the source of talents during the different ages. As an example, most of the time the gods provide the powers, the occult has its own source of power, modern times develop psionic abilities and the New Age uses cyber implants to harness/enhance powers. Clockwork technology is available during the early modern age, too. So, what do you get? Everything you want to play, really. During the Dark Ages you could create a Fantasy like feeling, including dwarfs, Elves and such if the campaign...

Exiles in Arms: Moving Targets

Exiles in Arms: Moving Targets Very good story which you read it easily and hungrily to the end. But the end it's a little bit half and you expect something more I believe. Although I recommend it !

Dark Ages Clan Novel 2: Assamite
by Juanita N.

Dark Ages Clan Novel 2: Assamite Intriguging page turner. I love how the author grabbed you from the first chapter and held you all the way to the end. The author took the three sects of the Assamite clan and blended them into a cohesive whole against the backdrop of the fall of Constantinople. He peppered it with some rarities and made a very interesting and intriguing characters. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in such a secretive clan.

Wendigo Tales: The Last Parsec: Echoes

Wendigo Tales: The Last Parsec: Echoes Short story that should be (by the amount of content) free, as a part of marketing for The Last Parsec products. Can't recommend it.

Demon: Interface

Demon: Interface An interesting look at the world of Demon, but it benefits from having read the Demon core book. I really like the idea of pairing rules with stories. The stories were a mixed bag but none were particularly memorable.

The Firestorm Chronicle Anthology
by Chazz K.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing

The Firestorm Chronicle Anthology This has been my favorite of the Onyx Path fiction anthologies so far. Promethean is a game that I missed the first time around, but after reading some of the fiction (and the development blog), I'll definitely give it a look in the second edition. The anthology kept my attention the whole way through, with only a few stories that I didn't think were excellent. Overall, it presents the ideas of Promethean in an understandable and interesting way, even for someone who has not looked into the game line....

Fuzzy Heroes 2nd Edition Great rules for a fun game. Has a good storyline and great if you want to take a break from more intense war gaming like Warhammer 40k. Its a great deal too.

Lands Beyond Kos (Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting)
by Eric F.
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
Date Added: 02/03/2015 18:36:28
Lands Beyond Kos (Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting) Lands Beyond Kos is the newest entry for the Swords of Kos Fantasy imprint from Skirmisher Publishing and for a fan of sword and sorcery role playing the timing couldn't be better. This is closer look at the big bright world beyond the Kos setting books, a sort of 'Ancient World' of mythology seen through a D&D style lens with over arching spins of adventure, fortune, and glory woven together with sword and sandal. Here adventure is always at the ready and your PC's are expected to be thrown into the deep end of legend and mythology itself. These are the lands of Hercules and the heroes of old, erm not quite. See your PC's are the heroes and this book is a setting book of lands,details, all the little bits and pieces your DM is going to need to deal with what's over the horizon of the seas of the world of Kos. This book details the lands and high areas of adventure in Kos. The book does it out in grand style and very easy to read bits and pieces with scattered adventure hooks pr...

Shadowrun: Dark Resonance
by Stephen M.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs

Shadowrun: Dark Resonance I'm not a huge fan of Technomancers in the game but they can and do work better in fiction. Unlike the old Shadowplay novel, this really focuses on the Matrix to the exclusion of all else. No doubt because of who the villain turns out to be. I personally prefer more of a mix of areas in Shadowrun. It's fun to see some of the Jackpointers come out to play even if the Decker plays secon fiddle most of the time by working in AR and no VR references.

The Strix Chronicle Anthology I'm glad to see Onyx Path getting back into fiction, and these anthologies are the perfect way to get a taste for the game world and themes of the line. After reading, I'm inspired to revisit Vampire for the first time in many years.

The Idigam Chronicle Anthology A great set of stories that gives the feeling of Werewolf: the Forsaken. The Wolf Must Hunt, the final story of the book, was my personal favorite but a number of the stories reflected the way I imagine Werewolf.

KOBOLD Guide to Magic http://www.teilzeithelden.de ----------- Feuerball, magisches Geschoss, Bannbaladin – allesamt verlässliche und berechenbare Sprüche im Arsenal zahlreicher Zauberer. Aber geht durch diese formularische Abbildung von Magie nicht der wahre Reiz von allmächtiger arkaner Kraft verloren? Der Kobold Guide to Magic verspricht, Magie im eigenen Rollenspiel wieder interessant zu machen. Rezension: Kobold Guide to Magic Fünf Jahre lang publizierte das D&D-Fanzine Kobold Quarterly diverse Artikel zum Thema Magie. 2014 wurden diese Essays in einem Sammelband zusammengefasst. Inhalte Die zahlreichen Essays im Kobold Guide to Magic beschäftigen sich vor allem mit einem Widerspruch im Rollenspielhobby: Zauberei, so wie man sie aus Literatur und Film kenne, sei unwägbar, unerklärlich und allmächtig. Genau dieser Reiz gehe aber durch die Abstraktion und genaue Definition von Magie in Form von Regeln verloren. Scheint dieser Ansatz auf den ersten Blick doch sehr gradlinig, so gelingt es ...

Shadowrun: Hell on Water

Shadowrun: Hell on Water Originally published at: http://diehardgamefan.com/2015/01/21/book-review-shadowrun-h-
ell-on-water/ I wasn’t sure what to expect diving head first into what is actually my first Shadowrun novel. I’ve read the game books and played the console and now PC games that were set in the universe but never really hit on the fiction. While I don’t think going into this one would be good if you’d never picked up anything related to Shadowrun before, it is kind of an interesting tale about a run gone horribly wrong. Then again, what run ever goes right? The book focuses on a group slapped together for this particular run. Set in Lagos and Nigeria, this isn’t even remotely an area I’m familiar with on top of being a setting in the Sixth World which means it’s cyberpunk and not quite our own, but you don’t have to rely on knowing the definitions of the Lagosian slurs they use to get by. Two members of the group are professionals from Seattle while everyone else is local and while they’ve been...

The Idigam Chronicle Anthology Quality terrible stories great for a first grasp on this wondrous world of hunters in darkness. Well combined to ensure an engaging reading, this anthology can leave you wanting more short stories or even a whole novel to break deeper through these shadows.
