Wanderhome
Publisher: Possum Creek Games

What an absolute delight.

From start to finish you can feel the sense of community and friendship the author intended for us. A refreshing change from the slew of dungeon crawling monster bashers, gothic scifi and angst filled horror. Jay Dragon provides us with the building blocks to tell our stories in a world full of curious rabbits and messenger moths and wily foxes and dragonfly knights and informative geckos and giant beetle caravans.

A wonderfully written book that encourages those of us who engage with it to use our imaginations! Imagine that? I mean so many RPG's tether you to a limited number of choices and feel so restrictive. Not here. Be what you want. It's your character, explore them together with the friends you make on your journey.

The book is lovingly illustrated throughout and you can tell that a great deal of work from everyone involved has made Wanderhome what it is. I sometimes feel publishers bulk out their products with a tonne of extra art or way too much pointless waffle. None of that here. Full page art breaks up chapters and sub chapters. Everything flows real nice into the next part of building the world you're all going to explore together. Oh and the book has actually been proofed which puts to shame plenty of so called fancy pants publishers of more well known IP.

I'd avoid if you're a crunch lover or a min maxer, Wanderhome is about as rules lite as you're ever going to get in a book and can be played without a traditional GM. But if you're actually interested in character development rather than numbers on a page, check it out. I defy anyone to read this book cover to cover and not smile at something at least once. I want to know who the mysterious stranger is and how he came to have one white eye. But then he could be a they or a she or a god or a daemon or whatever you choose, it's your game afterall.

So, to the author and to everyone involved I say thanks for investing yourselves into producing this game; for me it's the best ttrpg I've bought in over 35 years of gaming (I must own over a hundred). There should be a sixth star on here. Brilliant!

Earthdawn Fourth Edition Elven Nations (ED4)
Publisher: FASA
by Paul D. [Verified Purchaser]

No real world politics of any kind found in this book. No gender bashing, no ethnicity shaming and no status shaming. What an absolutely refreshing change to have a product contain none of it in an entertainment medium where one tries to escape from the mundainity or horror of real life.

As for the product itself, top quality pdf as you should have come to expect if you are buying into the Fourth edition of this game much like myself.

The stuff on the Blood Wood elves is pretty horrifying, the various sacrifices made to ensure survival. I eat this up like candy, you really get a feel for what elves as a race are and how one could be portrayed at your table.

Keep up the great work, you have a fan.

Manual of Exalted Power: Dragon-Blooded
Publisher: White Wolf

A million miles away in terms of content compared to 1st and especially compared to 3rd edition. The hardcover book is a beautiful B&W reprint. Honestly, a lot of people think 2nd edition is a bit clunky, but to me it improved on 1st and doesnt contain all the social justice white knighting and gender politicing that OP Exalted does. That for me is not needed in any rpg. The art is in general superior and the book wont break your arm to hold. EAT a load of this Onyx Path, your Exalted sucks, this is the real deal.

Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
by Paul D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/15/2019 12:02:16

Decent art, decent gubbins and decent additions and expansions on Terrestrial Exalted in general over previous editions. Just get past the publishers virtue signalling that seems to pervade all of their products these days. Not everyone in your SAGA has to be transexual, homosexual or even asexual. Adding this nonsense to the world setting detracts from its grandeur as an epic of the PAST, not something stuck with millenial taudry gender politicing. But then, where i'm from women have always been accepted in roleplay groups just as much as men and so needed no special treatment. In fact many of my female roleplaying friends find this sort of nonsense more insulting than I do lol. Aside from that and a few retcons that go unexplained, it's a solid 3 star product. Would be more if OPP could keep what's between their legs out of their games. YMMV.
