The Pale Master - D&D 5e Class
by Zachary M.
Publisher: Grim Press
Date Added: 08/17/2019 13:52:08
The Pale Master - D&D 5e Class I started playing D&D 5e 3 years ago and have fallen in love ever since. The first character I wanted to make was a necromancer but after seeing the Wizard subclass I quickly was dissapointed. Over the years I've always wanted to play a necromancer but I was given very little oportunity nor the tools to do so in a way that interested me. I've been very critical of homebrew I allow or use, because for me I like using the rules as a tool to tell stories for my players and I enjoy the same consistancy as a player. If you search "homebrew necromancer class" your sure to find a plethora of options but of the massive amount that I looked at only the Pale Master has given me the feeling of an actual necromancer in a balanced well rounded way. However while I think very highly of this class, I've noticed that for the Path of Ash subclass you are given two reaction based abilities on top two other reaction based class abilities. Making it so high level Pale Master's have 4 reactions at any give...

Random Solo Adventure: Fantasy Dungeon
by Maciej K.
Publisher: PenguinComics.com
Date Added: 08/06/2019 14:34:45
Random Solo Adventure: Fantasy Dungeon It is entertaining the first time, but then you realize that there is no choice whatsoever, and not even an illusion of choice. Essentially you roll a die a million times and then you die. I understand the author's intention, but it just doesn't work. Here are the issues: - The mechanics are extremely simplistic, but in a bad way. You have just one stat - HP - and it doubles as your combat skill (you roll under or equal HP to hit). So as soon as you start losing HP, you get worse - you hit less often, so you get hit more often. If you get hit, you are pretty much dead. - Starting out is extremely harsh. You start with just 2 HP with a weak weapon, and right away you can encounter an enemy that can one-shot you, because he deals 2 damage with each hit. You can also randomly step into traps, and there is no option to spot them or avoid them or anything - you just take damage. If you are lucky, they won't one shot you. - And you don't have any control over what happens. You just roll...

Gebb 49 – Every Ant-Like Alien Has Her Breaking Point I love when Ed gets a chance to shine! This strip is great for her character.

Gebb 47 – Animal Lover Joyce is a great character as always! KMO handles the tonal shift between an actually sad, reflective moment to a very in-character joke at the end really well.

Gebb 44 – Internal Composition The story's taking a really interesting turn here! This strip definitely has me curious for what comes next. (The last line is pretty hilarious, too!)

Scars: An Earthdawn Novel

Scars: An Earthdawn Novel Powerful story, more than just fluff. Gives us a complex character and interesting development. The climax was beautiful- Mountainshadow done right! I'd love to talk more, but that would be spoilery. Read and enjoy, it's well worth the price. Still struggling to get through my copy of Little Treasures since French is not my first language, or even my second...

Shadowrun Legends: Worlds Without End
by Allegra V. R.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 07/31/2019 19:09:33
Shadowrun Legends: Worlds Without End A sad ending, but a good story, is always bittersweet. I like the connections between ED and SR. I read the trilogy out of order, but this is still good. I like how Harlequin isn't a complete Mary Sue- I feel like Spector actually salvages the character.

Shadowrun Legends: Never Trust an Elf
by Allegra V. R.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 07/31/2019 19:02:15
Shadowrun Legends: Never Trust an Elf Not really the best SR tale out there, but it gives a lot of good lore- some of which isn't addressed in the SR rules proper until much later in publication history. (Such as orks with human lifespans) Wish there was more followup on some of the plot threads, but that's early SR novels for you! Worth the price.

The God-Machine Chronicle Anthology
by Erlan P.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 07/28/2019 09:16:12
The God-Machine Chronicle Anthology A very fine collection of short stories. Each one have their own very distinctive flavor and you can take ideas from them for your chronicle. Severa of the stories are not really God-Machine ones as we know from Chronicles of Darkness. These are pro-God-Machine, and are compiled from books that later would inspire the God-machine setting. Still very enjoyable.

Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine
by Edward J.
Publisher: Jenna Katerin Moran
Date Added: 07/25/2019 18:14:47
Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine _Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine_ is a delight. Leave behind, for a time, the traditional mission-based model of RPGs, where the story is about slaying dragons and solving mysteries. Here, the focus is on the character level of story: your avatar's feelings, thoughts, and personal growth. If along the way you slay some dragons or solve some mysteries, those things are in service to your journey as a person, not the other way around. Oh, and along the way you get to chew the scenery of a setting unlike any other, rich in whimsy and wonder! One _caveat emptor_: I cannot recommend the standard color printing of the corebook. The small font size, the textured background used on most pages, and the reduced ink density/paper quality of the standard edition combine to make the bulk of the text faint and difficult to read. (I shudder to think of how someone with any degree of visual impairment would fare trying to use the book.) The supplements use a larger font size and thus don't ...

Mythos Society Guide to New England
by Monica G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
Date Added: 07/20/2019 12:53:44
Mythos Society Guide to New England The Mythos Society Guide to New England is a sourcebook that doesn't contain any actual rules or adventures, but is well suited for use with the Call of Cthulhu and Cthulhu Live roleplaying games. The book primarily gives historical information about New England, of course--New England being the primary setting of the works of H. P. Lovecraft, creator of the Cthulhu Mythos, on which Call of Cthulhu and Cthulhu Live are based. The focus is on the myths and legends of supernatural or strange happenings in New England--the sort of things that would form the basis of a great Call of Cthulhu adventure. A note for those who aren't familiar with it, Call of Cthulhu is a horror role-playing game published by Chaosium, that has been around since the 1980s. It is based on the work of H. P. Lovecraft, who wrote about evil alien monsters and black magic. Cthulhu Live is a live-action role-playing game based on Lovecraft's writings, in which players dress up in costume and act out their charact...

The King in Yellow: Annotated Edition
by Nathan W.
Publisher: Arc Dream Publishing
Date Added: 07/20/2019 08:19:29
The King in Yellow: Annotated Edition Judging this book by it's cover, which is sweet by the way, this leather back book has a gold embossed scarab on the front. Nothing fancy, just sleek and elegant. Opening this tome (or in my case the PDF) you'll be greeted with stunning piece of artwork by Samuel Araya. The book has several captivating pieces of art scattered amongst it's pages, all of which are beautiful and help to bring the stories to life. From there it moves on to the title page, publishing information and table to contents. I appreciate that Arc Dream put in a table of illustrations as well. Makes showing off the books great artwork that much easier. The PDF version is fully bookmarked. This undoubtedly time consuming effort by the editor is a massive boon for the reader. When I say fully bookmarked, I mean fully. Each of Ken Hite's annotations are bookmarked as well, and there is a TON of them. Ken's insight into Chambers' writing shows. Ken brings you into the strange, nightmarish world Chambers first created....

Widowed

Widowed Best of the Mongoose short stories to date. If you've played the Pirates of Drinax Campaign, you know the Widows are one of the more fascinating but underdeveloped features of the campaign. This short story is an enjoyable read on its own merits, and also fills in a lot of the gaps in the campaign material.
