Exalted 3rd Edition
by Hailey M.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 04/29/2016 21:25:41
Exalted 3rd Edition I am in love with this game. The combat system is dynamic and takes a lot less time than expected after the first few combat scenes. The social influence system is also amazing! It takes your character's intimacies and makes them important, it also avoids the nasty "mind control" stuff that 2e made the norm. Sorcery is amazing and fun! And it includes Sail rules! The subsystems make me want to make all sorts of different characters. Overall, I'm pleased with the new Exalted.

Exalted 3rd Edition

Exalted 3rd Edition Let me preface by saying that Exalted is my favorite game in my nearly 40 years of table top gaming. I own all of the 1st and second edition books and eagerly awaited the 3rd edition. I have to say overall I am impressed and I have to agree with their reviews here the systems are solid and streamlined. I love the addition of new Exalted types and the massive amount of info they crammed into this book, even if it did take a long time, too long for some, to get to market. The is one key issue I have to address which is not enough to make it fall short of 5 stars for me. I know my gripe may seem small to so but they say the devil is in the details and there is one detail related to the setting I can't get past. I apologize if it takes a bit to explain. the vast majority of fantasy settings conform to the archetypes of either Western Europe or Japan and/or China. One of the primary reasons I was initially drawn to Exalted was that while it leaned heavily of the Japan/China archetypes it...

Kev's Lounge Paper Minis: A Rhapsody of Clashing Steel Kev's figures are among the best in the marketplace. The artbook showing the development of each figure is a bonus beyond expectations. I always look forward to each release.

The One Ring - Journeys and Maps
by Paul R.
Publisher: Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.

The One Ring - Journeys and Maps This book is a tremendous resource for any One Ring Loremaster who wants to flesh out his journeys! I love how well organized all the info is, and how creatively written each part is. The book has great ideas / encounter seeds for hazards in general, arranged by terrain difficulty, and even some for specificly named locaitons. The journey by boat section was particularly timely, as I bought this book just as my group embarked on a boating adventure. I love how there are whole sections on creating environmental features (waterfalls, thickets, caves, mines), meeting people and stopping at local farmhouses (poor, rich, roadside inn, etc.), and even a whole chapter devoted to creating ruins for your party to discover! The maps look great, too! They are plenty detailed enough for using on my laptop / tablet screen while preparing or projecting on my TV during gameplay....

Tarantis (1983)
by Tim K.
Publisher: Judges Guild
Date Added: 04/29/2016 14:04:17
Tarantis (1983) This is the last of the City States by Bob Bledsaw. Judges Guild retreated from the hexagon system used by The City-State of the World Emporer, returning to the City-State of the Invincible Overlord's style of mapping. It comes off a bit more rigid and more mechanical looking than CSotIO, but seems to have retained much the same high-fantasy vibe. If you are wondering why it didn't do as well or have as much fan-fare as the previous entries, it could be that most JG fans would have recognized TARANTIS as a campaign region and perhaps thought that this detailed a wilderness map. It was also a time when the RPG publishing industry was getting more glossy, more professional, and there was no matching change in quality or quality control at Judges Guild. However, there is a solid City State effort here, and it is more satisfying than CSotWE and perhaps a bit less inspired than CSotIO. If you need or collect RPG cities, this is a good one and well worth a look. The scan quality...

Exalted 3rd Edition
by Anthony S.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 04/29/2016 13:52:23
Exalted 3rd Edition Exalted 3rd Edition is a beautiful, rich, deep experience of an RPG that vastly improves on the clunky but functional framework left behind by Exalted 2nd Edition. As a veteran player and Storyteller of 2nd Edition, and now as a Storyteller for 3rd, I am finding both myself and my players enjoying a considerably more streamlined experience. It is now easier to built a character that makes functional sense, and it is now easier to place them in a world that makes functional sense. **Backstory/Geography/Woldbuilding:** The components of the world are succinctly and logically laid out and the folks at Onyx Path have done a very nice job in letting you read about how things are NOW as opposed to the journey they took in the past, with only a short snippet on the present. While history is important to understanding any culture, in the context of an RPG that here-and-now element is much more important. Third edition delivers much more soundly than Second. **Character Creation:** ...

Mini Quest: Beware the Wyvern Wood This was great. When our main DM had some family responsibilities on our regular game night I took over temporarily. I used this as a one shot. We played for 3 hours and only made it half way through. The group had a blast.

5e Creature Decks: More Aberrations & Fiends Very nicely done, makes it easier to flip card to show players what they see. The print is small, so if you a old blind geezer (like myself), keep reading glasses (or use an app that zooms in with your cellphone camera).
