Tales of the Dark Eras http://www.teilzeithelden.de/2017/04/18/rezension-tales-of-t-
he-dark-eras-onyx-path/ Es geht gruselig zu, von der Antike bis in die Gegenwart. Der komplementäre Kurzgeschichtenband zu Chronicles of Darkness: Dark Eras entführt den Leser in leicht verdaulichen Happen in vergangene Zeiten. Dabei kommen auch Klischees, Horror und Ideen für Rollenspieler nicht zu kurz. Mittlerweile ist es ja bereits eine ungeschriebene Regel: Für jedes neue Spielsystem bringt Onyx Path auch eine dazu passende Kurzgeschichtensammlung heraus. Dieses Mal ist dies jedoch aus zwei Gründen bemerkenswert: Erstens handelt es sich bei Dark Eras nicht um ein neues System (wie etwa Demon: The Descent oder Mummy: The Curse), sondern um eine Erweiterung für alle bisher erschienenen Spielsysteme. Und zweitens spielen die Kurzgeschichten nicht in der gruseligen Gegenwart, sondern in der Vergangenheit der Chronicles of Darkness. Die Ankündigung des Bandes dürfte vor allem Lore-Fans der Rollenspielreihe gefallen: „Als...

The House of Hex
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Incarnadine Press
Date Added: 04/15/2017 13:55:20
The House of Hex A great sword-and-sorcery story that will surprise to the end. Paced perfectly, it's neither mindless action nor tedious. It captures the genre, and effectivly conveys both the story and the location it takes place in.

Cthulhu 101 This little book with a huge font is great for a light romp through some dark territory. Not too bad, its references are a little dated, but still fun to read.

YOU: A Fiction
by Justin U.
Publisher: Greg Stolze
Date Added: 03/29/2017 13:05:02
YOU: A Fiction YOU: A Fiction is a second-person narrator story about you, a guy named Leo Evans who does your best to be a good servant. A necessary one. The story starts with you getting a library book stolen from you and then things escalate. There are weapons and photographers that use film (ptui digital!) to stop time and destroy bodies, love is commodified and there's a weird doppelganger made of mint. It's full of weirdness and relationships and weird relationships. I liked it. Greg Stolze is one of the creators of my favourite roleplaying game, Unknown Armies and *You* is set in that world. That gives the reader a bit of a grounding in the thoughts motivating some of the characters, but I think as a story it works better for a person who doesn't know the universe (I found some of the explanations a bit on the nose and would have appreciated a bit more vagueness about how things work since I know the rules, but whatevs). Good weird book. ...

YOU: A Fiction
by Timothy C.
Publisher: Greg Stolze

YOU: A Fiction This book hates you. You, personally, the reader. And yet, you will find yourself amused and engaged while the book insults your morals, your tastes, and your life choices. You will let the book indulge itself while it tells you a story of a fiasco about a collection of strange people doing ordinary things for unfathomable reasons, and sometimes doing extraordinary things for all-too-human reasons.

YOU: A Fiction
by James I.
Publisher: Greg Stolze

YOU: A Fiction A fun, twisting dive into the Unknown Armies world that's a great mystery too. If you're new to the setting it neatly drips in the information you need, and if you're experienced there's lots of 'aha' moments as you spot references to systems and figures in the books. Unlike 'Godwalker' it's a very personal and interior story, and for me shows where UA really shines - at the messy interactions between flawed people, ramped up to 11 by the existance of magick and obsessions. Not that you shouldn't read Godwalker too!...

The Chronicles of Ardis: Concordance
by Leanne F.
Publisher: Battlefield Press

The Chronicles of Ardis: Concordance I enjoyed the story presented in this book, and would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes detailed world settings, and is happy to keep track of lots of characters, so long as you are able to overlook a few flaws. The book has a couple of issues, mostly in terms of editting, however any reader aware of this before they start and happy to overlook it should find an interesting story with some compelling character development over the entire tale and plot twists in the latter half of the book. The second half of the novel really shows the author hitting his stride, and I particularly liked the differences in the characters that populate the setting, plus the feeling of depth, even on those occassions when things shifted gears a little unnaturally. The book is a first novel, and feels like it, but I dont feel this is of any disservice in and of itself, it is simply a fact. Clearly, the author has a world well built in his head, and the ground work to write many and more s...

The Fallen World Chronicle Anthology
by Timothy W.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 02/28/2017 21:58:16
The Fallen World Chronicle Anthology Overall, this is a good book, and I generally recommend it. It is an anthology of fiction, and like many anthologies, the quality of the individual stories varies. *Obedience* is one of the best stories in it, and is worth the price of the book by itself. That story is a reprint from *The Seers of the Throne*, though. *The Storyteller* is another excellent piece of fiction that puts a truly dark spin on *Mage* and is a genuine horror story. *The Wheel* is also a fantastic story that is well worth reading, though it feels more like a piece of Lovecraftian fiction than something set in the *Mage* universe. *Open Carry* and *Custody Battle* bother do a good job of protraying the *Mage* world while being quite entertaining. The remainder of the stories are something of a mixed bag. Many of the others are enjoyable, but some of them are enormously confusing and hard to follow, especially when they attempt to deal with Archmages which is something ...

Adventures in The Construction Paper Kingdom Presents "Book II Prince Nicholas & The Journey to The Sunken Kingdom"
by John M.

Adventures in The Construction Paper Kingdom Presents "Book II Prince Nicholas & The Journey to The Sunken Kingdom" Bought this after reading the first title in this series, "Book I: Prince Alexander & The Curse of The Soul Stealing Slumber". Really impressed with the way the author brings readers into a fantasy world that is speaking to younger readers without feeling childish. Like the first story, this one takes readers on an adventure with young heros that is exciting and fun. I also like that the author finds ways to weave characteristics like honor, courage, hard work and determination into the plots. And also like the first story, the artwork is completely unique and helps create an entire experience. Highly reccomended for younger (and not so younger) readers of fantasy, those new to the genre, or anyone simply looking for a great adventure story. ...

Adventures in The Construction Paper Kingdom Presents "Book I Prince Alexander & The Curse of The Soul Stealing Slumber" Very unique and incredibly creative. This story puts younger characters in the spotlight, which in turn makes it a fun and inspirational story for younger readers. But I found it equally enjoyable as an adult! Great adventerous storyline that introduces a medieval-type world steeped in myth while taking readers on an exciting journey with a young hero. Really distinct and super-creative artwork adds to the experience. I found this to be a a great read for the whole family.

How to Draw Fantasy Art and RPG Maps

How to Draw Fantasy Art and RPG Maps This was an alright purchase for me the guidelines this book provided were more or less similar to what you'd find online for free so I can't help but feel that $23 is a bit much for this product. $12 isn't half bad but I also **DID** have to create my own PDF version which at this point any product on here should just come with that option. Especially a product like this that discusses using digital tools to make maps. That's a computer task and yet they only have epub and mobi files? Its way more of a pain to get a reader for those than to use a pdf....
