Weird Tales #354 (Special Edgar Allan Poe Issue)
by Jacques v. H.
Publisher: Wildside Press
Date Added: 10/14/2021 06:13:57
Weird Tales #354 (Special Edgar Allan Poe Issue) Not the original horror anthology magzine, but clearly influenced by the pulps. This fun collection of horror tales, articles, and interviews should provide more than enough inspiration for RPG sessions that explore everything spooky, unsettling, and fantastical. (Some of the articles, like the interview with the author of a Star Wars novel feels out of place, although the thought of a horror-themed SW novel is pretty damn intriguing.) Either way, you get 80 pages of content for fans of horror and the weird....

Wet Work

Publisher: Mongoose

Wet Work This was my first Traveller so maybe my expectations were too high. I read Marc Miller's book and am on the second of the New Era books. Those are more satisfying from both a Traveller and fiction standpoint. "Wet Work" is not something I would read if it wan't tied to traveller. I agree with the reviewer who said this was generic. I looked up the planet and the organization the protagonist belonged to in the traveller wiki. Both were somewhat sparse. I did not get the protagonists motivation based on the wiki write-up for the organization. But maybe there is a better source out there. My suggestion is that if you are going to make these "Traveller" short stories, that you provide some Traveller context and information in the book and some pointers to where to find more information on what is in the stories. Ideally, the stories should also plug into the broader Traveller universe and provide additional insight into that universe....

Ideas and Inspiration for Fantasy and Science Fiction Writers Hello James. It appears that your game Age of Fable, along with Tables for Fables, and all the rest of your website has been erased from the internet. I'm assuming your domain hosting lapsed and was taken over by squatters. I consider this a grave blow to old school gaming! I have attempted to find other avenues to contact you, through no avail. Here is this review in the hopes that you respond and something can be done to rescue your wonderful site from oblivion. Please contact me through my blogspot site vilecultofshapes. It should be easy to find. Cheers....

Game Geek Issue #1

Publisher: Avalon Classic
Date Added: 09/29/2021 00:28:19
Game Geek Issue #1 As I browsed DTRPG site looking for some printable board games or mini-games I stumble upon this publication. Since I wanted to learn a more about games in general and considering the company behind the magazine was Avalon, a name I consistently see over and over again the games I browsed (including many of them in my wishlist), I decided to give the magazine a chance (it is one Dollar anyways). There are two documents included in the product, one of the PDFs has 13 pages and the other one 52, I thought they were different but they (at least) start the same, the 13 page PDF looks lik a cut down version of he 52 page version but I do not know really the reason of such an attached document, perhaps a mistake in the moment of uploading the product. In the first pages reading the magazine I learned about a company called Metagaming that dominated the niche of micro games in the late 80’s and early 90’s (something I totally ignored so the investment in the magazine started paying from th...

The Silence of Our Ancestors: A Dragon-Blooded Novella Best of the Kickstarter Stretch Goal Novellas so far. The Silence of Our Ancestors provides an interesting, short and contained detective story that wield's the setting's unique concepts in a creative and fun way. The story contains the best depiction of demons I've read so far, and made me more interested about the Wanasaan than any other source yet. I sincerely hope we'll continuation to this story.

Shadowrun: Crimson

Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs

Shadowrun: Crimson I've read a lot of the Shadowrun novels, almost all of them. Some are a fun romp, bit of fun brain candy. Some stand out as having some real thought and depth. Crimson was one of those. A well thought out anti-hero with a crazy back story, even for Shadowrun, and in conflict with his nature. The full nastiness of their bit of Chicago, and the price of trying to maintain any principles. Crusading, idealism, cynicism, and the need to feed. I really enjoyed this book. Thanks to the author for putting so much thought and good writing into it....

Tales of the Aeon Society! A Dramatic Audio Drama! Ever since the pandemic hit in early 2020, I've discovered and really latched on to radio dramas, such as the H P Lovecraft Historical Society's Dark Adventure Radio Theatre (DART). This pulpy Adventure! addition to radio dramas is absolutely amazing with some great voice acting and the joy of high-flying, two-fisted action! i mean Nazis get punched and you have a talking ape...what more can you ask for?

Truth Beyond Paradox
by Björn L.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 08/30/2021 12:11:28
Truth Beyond Paradox **It's worth to go beyond - a Mephisto review** # **Truth beyond Paradox** The title of the anthology **Truth beyond Paradox** is a direct allusion to the first short story volume published for ***Mage***: ***Truth until Paradox***. In this new volume, the authors again set out to illuminate the highly diverse world of Mage with their short stories. Accordingly, as diverse as the role-playing world is, the short stories also turn out to be very different in terms of plot, characters, and backgrounds. However, a common denominator is that they all generally focus on individual characters and disregard the larger metaplot of the game world. Here, it's not about the large groups of mages that clash in the Ascension War, but rather the individual paths to a mage's enlightenment. For example, *Wildfire Sky* describes a mage for whom magic literally means playing with fire. Here, her personal interpretation of magic is much more important than the actual plot of the story. I...

Thief of Khazan
by A customer
Publisher: Trollgodfather Press
Date Added: 08/30/2021 03:16:00
Thief of Khazan This a great book. It is very well written with dry wit and humour that made me laugh more than once. The story itself is just like diving back into one of those adventures that you cherished on a gaming night, it was nice to get back there especially in this period! I thoroughly recommend the book for any Fantasy RPG players, of course especially T&T fans... so buy it, you won't regret it... (remember that with a bit of imagination, and using the map that is helpfully included at the end, you could even play the adventure through with some friends too, so double the value for money!) ...

The Strix Chronicle Anthology
by Björn L.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 08/28/2021 08:16:46
The Strix Chronicle Anthology **Monsters for monsters - a Mephisto review** # **The Strix Chronicle** **The Strix Chronicle** is an anthology set against the backdrop of ***Vampire Requiem***, focusing on the new enemies of the role-playing game's 2nd edition, the Strix. 13 stories tell the clash of the vampires with these ghostly creatures, which are described as shadowy owl-like creatures with a burning hatred for the vampires. At the same time, the stories are quite diverse. While the early stories focus on vampires being confronted with a threat they do not understand - and here the reader probably knows more than the characters in the story - the vampires in the later stories are in many cases much better prepared (which doesn't always mean things end up better). Most of the stories are entertaining and well-written — offering a varied range. There are fascinating ideas to be found, such as *Lullay, Lullay*, which is told from the point of view of a ghoul who is like a father to a powerful child vamp...

Silent Knife
by Björn L.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 08/28/2021 08:14:34
Silent Knife **Vampiric intrigues in Boston - a Mephisto review** # **Silent Knife** Because she was able to prevent a betrayal in the right place at the right time, the young vampire Ariadne has been appointed sheriff in the city of Boston. For her Prince, Liliane, she is the precise tool that, sword in hand, stops the traitors to the high ideals of the domain. Despite her young age, the vampire is a cold and efficient killing machine. However, when she meets a person from her past and remembers the person she once was, the problems begin. Not only proves the fight against the traitors to be more difficult than planned, but other vampires are also causing trouble. In the prince's court, some vampires envy Ariadne her position, and members of Invictus from outside the city sense the domain's perceived weakness. While **Silent Knife** initially lays it on a bit thick with the stereotypical image of the young, attractive female vampire in a bodysuit elegantly slashing her way through enem...

KOBOLD Guide to Plots & Campaigns

Publisher: Kobold Press
Date Added: 08/14/2021 06:32:42
KOBOLD Guide to Plots & Campaigns I’m reviewing this compilation of essays overall without delving too deep into each individual essay, since I think you would have to make up your own mind about those and see how useful it is. Some of them can be a bit situational. Overall, this is an excellent book for getting advice on your general storytelling abilities as a GM. The writing is down-to-earth and always clear to understand. The different essays teach you a number of different tools that you can make up your own mind about; you’d have to figure out which ones apply to you and which ones are most useful to you. Plus, the short little improv adventure at the end is appreciated! I also like how it has a positive tone towards tabletop RPGS and being the game master, where some tools aren’t treated derisively or judged upon just because the essay writer doesn’t use them. It’s a good message to get across - after all, what works for you may not work for another, but that doesn’t mean you should write it off. However, the...
