This audio drama is a great window into the world of Pugmire. The production values are superb for the cost of the item. The character of Darcy cat was compelling and the story should inspire others to new adventures in the world of Pugmire.

This was a fun little Shadowrun short story. I love the Halloweeners and the author did a good job giving them more personality than they usually enjoy in Shadowrun lore. The setting was very well described throughout the story. The rundown neighborhoods where the Halloweeners and the First Nation gangs have their turf wars really spring to 'life'. Street-slang is in full use in this short story, and it really brings that Shadowrun ambience to the story. The story is a fun, entertaining read.
The story revolves around Yuri, a former Russian army man, and his somewhat more mysterious girlfriend, Soren. Yuri is given the right mix of mystery and detail for his backstory, but I wish Soren was developed a bit more.
There's a bit of adult content in the story, which honestly felt a little bit out of place for me.
As a Shadowrun GM this story greased my hamster wheel for how I could better integrate gangs into my Shadowrun adventures other than offering them up as easy targe...
I haven't read fiction in ~15 years. I randomly grabed this book. It was quite good. A quick, easy read, not something that looks like a thesaurus threw-up on the page. Obviously a 'character introduction' type piece. I look forward to more.
A tense story, with a fitting name. With a relentless drive, it raises the stakes at every opportunity before reaching a climactic and satisfying ending. Allthough this is the sixth Sabit story, it works well alone. It moves effortlessly between characters, making all of them, both heroes and villians, stand out as full characters.
This sampler provides pages of fun and inspirational material from Black Shark Enterprises. There are tables of pirate-themed encounters, nauticaL terms and an article speculating on piracy in the Minoan trade empire.
It was a nice little teaser, but I was hoping for something more. I get the whole special mask thing, but it really did not give me much to truly understand what the world was about. Maybe a conflict where the character used the mask would have been cool. It just gave me more questions. Oh well, I'm already planning my campaign. I just need to wait for the book to come out.
Refreshingly free from the stains of hubris and narcicissm Tim Fatchen delivers what he promises! Dark, gloomy, and moody this sample aka example of his background music (for Cthulhu or World of Darkness) made a very good impression to me, and worked even while editing my own fiction and cover-art-composing!
A wonderful appetizer proving that the musician or sound-artist Tim Fatchen did earn his place on our wishlists & products to remember!
[ I gave five of five stars, but due destruction of my main notebook I am working on long outdated tech, the screen shaking and flashing due the constantly overpowered 64MB graphic chip losing it...] ...
I enjoyed this ebook, though it was rather too short for my taste. A lot of time was devoted to character development and backstory but the the book ended; my assumption is that there will be further adventures in future short stories but I was left a little deflated at the end as much was left unexplained and unresolved.
I felt that some of the characters were a little stereotyped; from gentile Parisian to gun toting, follower slaying machine, tom boy mechanic, other worldly academic, nice-but-dim, skeptical cop.
All if that said though, it was thouroughly enjoyable to read and I read it from virtual cover to cover in a couple of sessions over a couple of days, and was genuinely disappointed when there were no more pages to turn. More please, now the characters are established so all the more room for plot....

This is a collection of short fiction. I have not yet read the stories; this review is more a review of the product blurb, which sounds (in the context of this being an rpg-centric store) like a collection of modules. It's not.
A must have for any Cold War military enthusiast and Wargamer.
Very well researched, easy to read and well illustrated.
Covers the various types of each vehicle with all the specifications and data.
Having owned and read several of his books, Russell Phillips is at the top of the game in military publishing.
The first night I got it, I read the first section. There's a fight between the main character and his cousin. The fight and the immediate aftermath were cool, but... I guess it didn't grab me. I am a fan of the Vikings show on History and it seemed a bit too much like fanfic to really spark my interest. When I got back into it, once he was out and about in the world it became a lot more interesting.
Things I really liked:
1.) The tidbits of archaic vocabulary. It was just enough to keep the ruleofcool without getting distracting.
2.) Usage of the vrykolakes. I always thought that undead monster was rather cool but rarely encountered in any DnD I ever played.
3.) The illustrations are also great....
