Hora de Aventuras
by Marcelino S.
Publisher: Nosolorol Ediciones
Date Added: 06/24/2016 21:17:07
Hora de Aventuras Based on design alone this book is beautiful. My Spanish is a bit rusty and it's going to take me some time to read it. However I hope they translate this book to English as fast as they can. And sell the offical book here cause I would but it in heartbeat. Come on Cartoon Network we want it here too. When I get this finished reading I will update this review. So far it's beautiful.

Valiant Universe RPG: Transcendent's Edge
by Blide S.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 06/24/2016 18:10:57
Valiant Universe RPG: Transcendent's Edge This is, without a doubt, the single best-written superhero setting sourcebook I have ever purchased. As a long time gamer of super settings, I have bought several good products on this website; but this is the first I have been compelled to review. It is *that* good. I simply cannot say enough about the craftmanship of the writing. The reader can become immersed in this setting. You will be drawn in by the city description, the depth of the NPCs, the structure of the various organizations, and even the municipal politics. The deepweb chatter inserted from time to time regarding plans within plans of the big bad guys and their shadow groups was an especially nice touch. The material is fun to read, the setting is original, and the details are well explained. Bravo!...

7th Sea Core Rulebook (Second Edition)
by Iam B.
Publisher: John Wick Presents
Date Added: 06/24/2016 18:03:20
7th Sea Core Rulebook (Second Edition) Fun and easy. If you are familiar with FATE it is very similar with an emphisis on being thematic, dramatic, big, and using "raises" to accomplish your desired actions, which you are encouraged to describe to the GM and party, and be a hero. Very high seas drama and a lot of fun!

Agent of Death
by Chet C.
Publisher: Flying Buffalo
Date Added: 06/24/2016 15:58:02
Agent of Death If you have not yet played this solo, then run - do not walk - to click ADD TO CART right now. This is one of the more REplayable adventures that I've yet had, though I doubt you'll be replaying with the same character. It really is that deadly - and a good deal of the character deaths are actually caused by your choices, though there are a couple of BOOM-You're-Dead occurances. For the most part, the clues are there and staying the noble and straight path (i.e. - Keep your eye on your ultimate goal) and you stand a much better chance. Luck certainly can play a factor. One way or another, you're going to enjoy this. I enjoyed it so much, I paid for the hard copy of this solo AND for the PDF....despite the fact that I was one of the blindtesters!...

Shadow & Blade: A Guide to Assassins in Tunnels & Trolls
by Chet C.
Publisher: Trollish Delver Games
Date Added: 06/24/2016 15:52:16
Shadow & Blade: A Guide to Assassins in Tunnels & Trolls ###### I hope I remembered to pay for this, because it's worth it. One should never, never, *NEVER* permit players to play an assassin (unless you truly want your campaign to self-destruct) but there are assassins (even if they don't call themselves that) in most rolegaming worlds - and a gamesmaster needs to be ready to portray such NPCs. With this little volume, you are prepared to endanger your PCs with a 3-dimensional assassin who is not a cliche, who has depth and reason and might even be of use to your PCs. And if one is running a TnT campaign in a modern world - well, James Bond is definitely an assassin character. (See Mercenaries, Spies, & Private Eyes for TnT in a modern world.) There's a marvelous and short solo adventure included, in which you can really let yourself go. After all, in a solo, you're the Player and the GM....and the GM can play assassins very wickedly. I would drop one half of a star and rate this 4.5, ONLY because I firmly believe that players shou...

Ponyfinder - 5th Edition Translation
by Andrew E.
Publisher: Silver Games LLC
Date Added: 06/24/2016 15:44:23
Ponyfinder - 5th Edition Translation Works with the Ponyfinder Campaign Setting, for the Pathfinder rules. If all you're looking to do is a quick and dirty update from Pathfinder to 5th Edition, this will probably serve. **IT IS NOT A STANDALONE PRODUCT**, if that wasn't clear from the description. **This pdf is only a race conversion.** It gives very very little roleplay info about the races-- hardly any fluff. That, apparently, is in the larger campaign setting book. There are no new rules for integrating these into the 5E game (consider, for instance, that ponies are "Fey" and as such, many spells do not function on them in the same way they would on the Core player races). The balance of the races is dubious. Without going into too much detail, one race gets the ability to breathe underwater, while another race make an entire Ability Score obsolete. Some design choices were strange to me as well. Silver Games tries to take the same approach that they did in Pathfinder: trading in and out features from a ba...

7th Sea Core Rulebook (Second Edition)

7th Sea Core Rulebook (Second Edition) Haven't quite finished it, but everything I've read has been absolutely fantastic. I started playing in a 7th Sea adventure over on gamersplane.com and am having a blast. Also, any any gaming system that has a mechanic called "The McClane Effect" which makes the characters more awesome the more damage they take is brilliant!

The Doom-Cave of the Crystal-Headed Children
by Marcus Q.
Publisher: Lamentations of the Flame Princess
Date Added: 06/24/2016 15:29:55
The Doom-Cave of the Crystal-Headed Children I had the pleasure of playing this in a one shot with a great Referee. The setting stayed true to the "weird" that LotFP is known for. It was interesting and not so combat oriented. The exploration and puzzles were wild, and the overall experience was a great one. I would recommend this one without a doubt.

RMFRP Arms Law What to say? I already had a paper copy of Arms Laws (Italian) and I felt the need to buy a digital English one. That says how much I like Rolemaster. The file itself has Excellent readability. Could be improved with bookmarks though. Thanks! A GM

Santa's Soldiers Presents: A Very Krampus Christmas
by David C.
Publisher: Deep7
Date Added: 06/24/2016 14:09:46
Santa's Soldiers Presents: A Very Krampus Christmas I found this adventure aid a little disappointing. I was looking for an aid that would help me throw Krampus into an existing campaign as a Christmas aside. What I found was a wealth of background information for people who have no idea who Krampus is, which it seems to me is not who would be interested in the product. That background information is readily available on the Internet. The rest of the material, which related to ideas how to bring Krampus into a campaign and statistical information on Krampus and his minions (which is the part I thought I was going to be excited about), turned out to be bound with iron shackles to the game system of the creators of the product, and just to read through it assumed and demanded intimate familiarity with that system. Also the tone was a little silly in places, which to me is not a deal-breaker, but combined with the product's other weaknesses turned me off to the supplement. I suspect this tone is characteristic of their whole game sys...

Hero Kids - Fantasy RPG
by Serge B.
Publisher: Hero Forge Games
Date Added: 06/24/2016 13:55:33
Hero Kids - Fantasy RPG Very well done RPG-with-(paper)-minis for kids. It has the right level of complexity and difficulty that can be hard to gauge as a parent. My youngest (10) is able to play a "real" system like Fate to an extent, but enjoys the physicality of pushing minis on a board and combat a lot. Hero Kids also includes ability tests, which makes it a pretty complete "My First RPG" system. The setting is also well done: it isn't very detailed, but does a good job of creating a world where it makes sense for kids to be the adventurers instead of their parents. All in all I highly recommend this for parents who want to get their kids into the RPG hobby....
