Ambush

Publisher: Four Fools Press
Date Added: 07/15/2018 09:37:23
Ambush Just when things slip beyond Tenet's control, Ambush! Tenet, cursed with seeing The Truth of Things, meets Timothy Hammer, reporting for New Dawn magazine, 2001, Bakersfield, California. Questions arise about the Shadow People, those who have existed among us since shortly after the Fall of Man, as detailed in chapter three of Genesis, as you already may know. Young Timothy is stunned to hear that a faction among these mysterious beings are actually seeking revenge upon him, personally, because of actions taken by his own ancient ancestors, the Sons of Hamor. Tenet draws Sicol, his silvered katana blade from Beyond, and wades into battle as prepared as he can be for such confrontation. As they say, if things are going well, it's entirely possible you're walking into an ambush. Fast-paced, mysterious as every Tenet's Tale has been thus far, Ambush kept me on the edge of my seat and tense for the entire story. I can't fault this story for anything other than being so short ...

Cold Vengeance

Publisher: Four Fools Press
Date Added: 07/15/2018 08:34:10
Cold Vengeance 1887 Montana, swirling snow and piercing cold drive the three men on horseback as Tenet tracks alongside the rancher Israel and his local taxidermist and doctor friend, Jo. Last year the two had killed, and mounted as trophy, a wolf-like creature. Tenet knows from long experience that the thing had to be a Shunka Warakin, local name for a type of the Fallen. Jo may not think much of such "supernatural hogwash" but that doesn't stop it from existing, or being even more dangerous than Tenet's companions could fathom. This adventure is short, a swift punch in the gut that takes your breath away, but well worth the read. If you have not yet met Tenet by way of The Truth is Out There, do yourself a favor and read that as well! Tenet himself is not a simple or easy character to get to know, but every adventure will have you rooting for him, whatever his ultimate fate may yet be. Now that I've read this second adventure, I'm on to read Ambush, third so far in the Tenet's Tales stories, hop...

The Unnearthed

The Unnearthed Another great story about Oshala by Michael Miller. This short story covers a lot of ground about Oshala, and could work well as an introductory story about her. Many of her dominant character traits comes out well, and many of the themes of her stories are present here as well. Yet again in the search for arcane secrets, Oshala is forced into dealings with both mundane and unnatural horrors. There is truely no better friend, or worse enemy, than her. It comes through very strongly in this story how caring Oshala can be, but also reckless and cruel....

Hope&Glory: Number the Brave A great cast of characters tries to survive a colonial war tale. "Number the Brave" is a wonderful novelette with some serious historical background work. Hope & Glory is an alternate history setting, steampunk themed with a new and refreshing perspective on the genre. Do yourself a favor and read it!

The Worm Within - The First Chronicle Of Future Earth (novel)
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Modiphius
Date Added: 07/01/2018 08:57:59
The Worm Within - The First Chronicle Of Future Earth (novel) **Short take:** *The Worm Within* is a very enjoyable read. I recommend it and look forward to the next installment. **Long take:** I won't describe the plot in details, but it's pretty standard stuff for anyone who's read a smidgen of pulp fantasy and/or sat on fantasy and science-fantasy role-playing game sessions. There's a young apprentice with a mysterious past, a paladin, a magician of sorts, a thief, and a dark threat that puts the whole wold in danger. Still, Sarah Newton manages to inject enough energy in these over-used formulas to keep *The Worm Within* interesting. The short chapters, organized around brief sections showcasing Newton's resolute writing style, give the story a strong forward momentum almost from the get-go. There's little to no fat either: the novel's very well edited, with less than a handful of typos. Jargon pertaining to the world in which the story takes place fills the text, but I never found it so distracting that I stopped enjoying the read. In...

Worlds Without Master, Volume 1, Issue 3

Worlds Without Master, Volume 1, Issue 3 Curious about Swords without Master? I was too, the name kept popping up in conversations but I never really got a chance to check it out, until recently. I found that I needed to closely read the rules and it took a second read through to start to understand the finer points of the system, especially how the players interact with it as the character creation is spread out through out the book in sidebars. Aside from this minor gripe, I heartily recommend checking this game out. SWM concerns itself more with the structure of your story and less with the fiddly details of combat or skill checks. The three phases of the game each create a natural back and forth at the table and give everyone a chance to add to the fiction of the game. You should play this game if you are interested in creating tight short story sessions and want to be suprised even as the GM by where the story takes you. The community for Swords without master is active on Discord and Google +, the Author a...

The Truth Is Out There
by Jennifer W.
Publisher: Four Fools Press
Date Added: 06/20/2018 22:28:25
The Truth Is Out There Reporter Matt Olsen's whole job is to write eye-grabbing stories that will satisfy readers looking for a ripping good story. All to sell as many copies as possible of that rag, The Observer. Behind the scenes, he believes the truth is out there, yet he is skeptical, and constantly searching for answers. "Beware the Hantu, mortal." The voice from the alley a drench of ice water in the sticky-hot Singapore night. Spine-chilling tales of the Hantu Jarang Gigi, ghostly pale ape-men. Lurid description, frenetic action and mystery abound in this gripping tale of Matt's venture into the shadowed depths of the steaming Malaysian jungle. Hardly believing his own actions, Matt dives into the jungle in pursuit of his lost bag, brim-full with his own hand-written notebooks full of stories and secrets. Beyond that, he can only admit to himself that he couldn't leave the trail unfollowed, or the mystery unsolved. Only his iron-strong determination can save him from a fate worse than simp...

Tales from the Rocket Age Rocket Age smashes triumphantly off of the gaming table and onto the page. The team provide a well currated little collection of stories that perfectly capture the fun and over the top nature of the setting. Ken Spencer's Emancipation Knights was a particular stand-out, providing adventure and laughs in equal measure. For those worried about format, I found that the pdf was quite readable on my ereader, so I wouldn't worry too much about that, the content of the book far outshines any formating issues. ...

Tales From The Magician's Skull #1

Date Added: 05/31/2018 00:20:11
Tales From The Magician's Skull #1 So far, this collection of short stories is AMAZING! I have just finished the third story and I wanted to write a quick review. I love short stories. It doesn't matter what medium or format. The reasons? They are easy to read, don't take a long time, and they tell a focused story... not unlike a D&D session! Plus, they are a treasure trove of inspiration for all you DMs and Players out there! This collection of short stories feel like they could have been inspired by someone's Tabletop RPG session (in a good way). In just the first three stories, my imagination is running wild with ideas to add into my home campaign! I can’t wait to read the rest! Also, the artwork is AMAZING too! It has that fun and intense black and white art style that reminds me of early D&D artwork. "Rad" would be the appropriate word to describe it. I really like the layout and design of the magazine too, super cool looking. Currently I’d grade this magazine with a solid "A". DMs and Players ...

Tales from the Rocket Age Reviewing it as a work of fiction, not on the basis of its format, this is a great book, providing exactly what I was looking for: inspiration, world building and some fun stories to kill some time.

BattleTech Legends: Prince of Havoc I have ever loved Stackpole's works, whether with BattleTech, Shadowrun, or Star Wars and, as always, this is an impressive entry to continue the story of the BattleTech universe. It's too bad there are so many spelling and word errors in the novel.

Dark Roots
by Jennifer W.
Publisher: Four Fools Press
Date Added: 04/16/2018 18:28:40
Dark Roots Through the centuries, the Reese family fight incomprehensible evil and pass their knowledge to the next generation, to continue their secret work and defend the innocent against such terrors. Three heroic stories, three different eras, and three very different encounters, though all share roots near the very gates of Hell. AD 1611, Essex, England, and Scotsman James Reese investigates a hovel torn asunder by a nameless beast. Infuriated to find that a helpless child was taken, he meets a Moor who knows this creature of old. Twenty years he has given chase, and Penelton knows how nigh-on impossible it may be to end it's voracious killing spree. The story of The Hunters moves as fast as the chase and fighting to follow, tense with the knowledge that more than the life of a child and the soul of a man are at stake. Shamelessly I admit my favorite tale in this volume is The Fox and the Hound, set in 1777 during the American Revolution. The Fox, a blockade-running schooner, captaine...
