Save Game • A World of Adventure for Fate Core

Save Game • A World of Adventure for Fate Core http://www.teilzeithelden.de/2015/04/01/rezension-save-game--
press-start-to-begin-fate-core/ Mit dem Schreiben dieser Rezension wird mir schmerzlich bewusst, dass ich langsam alt werde. Unsere reiferen Leser werden sich sicherlich an die Spielkonsolen der 8-bit-Ära erinnern. Prominente Vertreter waren das Nintendo Entertainment System (kurz NES), das Sega Master System oder der legendäre Atari. All diese Spielekonsolen hatten Einiges gemein: eine charmant-pixelige Optik, ein Videospiel-Gedudel mit Ohrwurmgarantie und ein Steuerung, die jeden Controller und Joystick einer täglichen Belastungsprobe aussetzte. Für unsere jüngeren Leser: „Ralph reicht’s!“ wäre ein Vertreter dieser Ära gewesen. Das Fate Core–Setting Save Game versetzt euch als altgediente Pixelhelden auf die arkadianischen Inseln, die Heimat aller Spielehelden. Voller Nostalgie öffne ich den Band und lasse mich von ihm in eine Welt ziehen, die fremd und zugleich so vertraut ist. Inhalt Auf nur 56 Seiten zeic...

Darkshade Chronicles: Quick Start Guide for Tunnels & Trolls Solo Adventures

Darkshade Chronicles: Quick Start Guide for Tunnels & Trolls Solo Adventures This was a fun little starting guide for Tunnels & Trolls. It might have been helpful if it had included a brief adventure to give a better idea of how to run it, but it's a nice taste of the game.

Mead & Mayhem

Mead & Mayhem Taverns are great places to begin adventures but their also places that can get PC's into big trouble D-oom products has a new product called 'Mead and Mayhem' that adds in another layer of random rabble rousing to bring even more problems into your local watering hole of your adventurers and outlaws. Taverns and bars have always been a staple of old school gaming one of the exciting things about the OSR is the number of optional products that fill a niche in the scene or more importantly at the table of old school gaming and here's where D-oom Products comes in with a great old school optional system for tavern brawls.

Spinward Encounters

Spinward Encounters For the developing campaign this is indeed an excellent source for one-up adventures. Since my campaign is well developed already, it was kind of a let down as to it usefulness, but all in all a good purchase nonetheless.

From The Archives of S.P.O.O.K.Y: New Beginnings for Old Lives
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Modern Retro Gaming
Date Added: 04/25/2015 10:45:21
From The Archives of S.P.O.O.K.Y: New Beginnings for Old Lives It is 1816 in Italy, and players take on the role of children aged 10-12 recruited by the Supernatural Protectorate Order of Knighted Youth in an adventure written for Call of Cthulhu 7e (but playable with earlier versions if preferred). The adventure opens with a prelude episode that sees a monstrous attack on a tavern, the children's parents slain and them recruited by their saviour, a knight of S.P.O.O.K.Y. They are then whisked off... To the next few scenes some five years later, with the characters now well-advanced in their training in what seems to be S.P.O.O.K.Y.'s equivalent of Hogwarts. There are some neat incidents designed to help them develop into their specialties, which range from alchemist to doctor, engineer or huntsman and more. Fast forward once again another five years, when they are attending a history lecture by Alexandre Dumas as they prepare for their 'graduation mission' as they progress in the Order from initiates to novices (odd, it's usually the oth...

100 Character Histories
by Asaph L.
Publisher: Board Enterprises
Date Added: 04/25/2015 08:42:19
100 Character Histories Another excellent product from Board Enterprises; offering for both Legend Quest game system and as a generic supplement. As GMs, we often sit and try to think of NPCs to help flesh out our world; all too often thinking that what we come up with seems just not quite right, or too cliche, etc. It happens, all the time, and if you've never used a Board Enterprises NPC product before, try this one. Fitting nicely alongside their Archetypical Characters sup, this amazingly inexpensive and versatile list is just what you need. Inside there are many creations, simple, easy to fit, versatile ideas for characters that you can find a spot for in any campaign. If you are lucky enough to be using Legend Quest anyway, these need no tinkering. If you are playing some other system, you may start to wonder about how much easier and simple these characters are to record and use...check out the Game; for 12 bucks you can have the rulebook that will change your RPG life. As for the supplemen...

Kapow!
by Sean Y.
Publisher: SFX RPGs
Date Added: 04/25/2015 03:08:27
Kapow! I stumbled across this, and am very pleasantly impressed! I love the Idea of Superhero RPGs, but often they are way too complicated ala Champions. (Gotta say I love Champions, but it tales so long to make a character, it's like a calculus test.) This seems to be the perfect setup for a Hero game, simple character generation focusing on what the character can do, instead of points or die rolling to make the character. Haven't read through the whole book yet, but looks very legit and focuses on ACTUAL roleplaying and storytelling, not just rolling handfuls of dice and min/maxing your character. Can't wait to give this one a try!...

Vornheim: The Complete City Kit

Vornheim: The Complete City Kit Great resource! And I don't need to study the book before using it - as long as I've flicked through it before a session, I have plenty of tables and inspiration for any city adventure. Highly recommended.

Abort Retry Fail
by Nick P.
Publisher: Newstand Press
Date Added: 04/25/2015 00:37:11
Abort Retry Fail We were mechanically rewarded for the one liners "Live with me if you want to come" and truly horrendous puns. Thus enabling our bloody ascent to the Governor's office and the death of Cohn Jonners. I don't know why you need anything else to convince you. I strongly recommend it.

Abort Retry Fail Ran this for a bunch of friends. They killed Cohn Jonnor, flung the Hollywood Sign into the Walk of Fame, blew up a sewage plant, and killed a truly /hilarious/ number of innocent civilians. It was great fun and I recommend everyone here give it a try.

Abort Retry Fail Started game attempting to low-key my way to governance of California. Turned into Austrian Senator Armstrong suplexing the T-1000 into a gas main and winning the election with a passionate rendition of Don't You (Forget About Me). 11/10 in the end it had to be this way.

Universal Adventures Dungeon Deck
by Jeffrey C G.
Publisher: New Realms Publishing
Date Added: 04/24/2015 23:45:32
Universal Adventures Dungeon Deck Pretty good set! Just what I needed and generic enough that they work fine with my homebrew system. My only complaint remains that they are a little pricey, but that's much less a factor in this set than some of the others due to the nice little geomorphs on each map card, so nowhere near enough to reduce my rating! I have now purchased most of these generic decks and use them in my games.

Wicked Lies & Alibis
by Thomas B. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Imaginary Empire
Date Added: 04/24/2015 23:43:09
Wicked Lies & Alibis SIX POINT SUMMARY - The game is designed so that The Great Detective is always right, as suits the source material...there's an optional rule that provides Verdict cards to the suspects, which can lead to the detective being wrong. - Tons of background information on evoking the art deco era. - The game is definitely more about the journey and not the destination, from a game standpoint, as there is no real winner, though there is a pretty clear loser (unless you use the Verdict cards and the killer gets off scott free). - Reference sheets are included for each of the nine case set-ups, to help you keep track of the background details. - Though a lot of information is provided for playing in the art deco era, it wouldn't take much work to update the setting to something more contemporary, if that suited your tastes (and I know from the contest entries I have received, that it does suit many of your tastes). - The PDF includes all of the cars from the game, if you want...
