The One Ring - The Darkening of Mirkwood
by joe w.
Publisher: Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.
Date Added: 07/31/2014 04:39:23
The One Ring - The Darkening of Mirkwood Pre-ordered this item from the publisher, the PDF was fine and I suggest no one orders anything other then PDFs from cubicle 7. This book is severely lack luster and nothing inside it is 'needed' to run a campaign set around mirkwood. It does not provide any new helpful information more a selection of tried and tested plots from any fantasy. The book came several months late, long after I had finished my campaign, it also arrived scuffed and battered. Stick with the PDF's because that is all you will get from cubicle 7...

Mapping Cards - BUGS!
by Mikael H.
Publisher: The Australian Wizard
Date Added: 07/31/2014 01:37:22
Mapping Cards - BUGS! This is a very minimalistic product, actually it is just a collection of keywords spread out on a couple of pages. When I buy things I want something thats either is an inspiration or a effort I'm not able of, this is neither. If there was more layout or some unique ideas this would have been worth the quarter I spent, but as is ... Not.

City of Rhum
by Asaph L.
Publisher: Board Enterprises
Date Added: 07/30/2014 19:21:05
City of Rhum Everything a GM wants in a city/base, all info, no waste, for a tenth the price of similar shiny, splashy but much less flexible such sourcebooks that I see available. Buy it, you just cannot be disappointed, unless you aren't the type of GM or have players that don't care about details and specifics of a great, fully fleshed out home base. Even then, there is so much to take away from this supplement. Another five-star product from Board Enterprises.

Legend Quest GOLD
by Asaph L.
Publisher: Board Enterprises
Date Added: 07/30/2014 16:55:22
Legend Quest GOLD This system is a realistic, congruous mechanism that allows for a greater emphasis on detailed roleplaying. Best used by veterans of the gaming genre (best appreciated by them), the system and supplements create a family of sourcebooks that do not waste an inch of space. By far the best bang for buck I've encountered in my 20+ years of roleplaying. I do not even miss having splashy full page color images and borders/fonts. If you truly "get" Legend Quest, you will realize that these are not helpful or valuable in terms of adding to the game mechanism, they are at worst limiting and cost prohibitive. I have been slowly switching from a bastardized d20/2e mechanism to LQ over the past year. Out with the BS, in with the fun. I have spent more time with Board Enterprises products than any other publisher. BE and Raging Swan give me more than enough of what my game needs....

OneDice Universal
by Ade J.
Publisher: Cakebread & Walton
Date Added: 07/30/2014 14:46:02
OneDice Universal Really good system - It works. It's good for experienced and new players as well as younger gamers. The mechanics are based around a d6 roll so are simple to pick up with a quick read through. What needs to be realised is that this is a toolbox for creating your own settings and worlds: There are some "Skins" included but are deliberately kept minimal to show what the rules are capable of. I like the writing style and it comes over well. I love the the digest size and I just wish more companies used this format. Also of note is the cover art - please keep the cover as common theme through future releases. A great product at an amazing price. Quick, fast and fun. Savage Worlds has a worthy basic digest sized game competitor at last. Can't wait for the promised settings books - they really will be the icing on the cake (bread ?) !...

D&D Basic Set - DM's Rulebook (BECMI ed.) (Basic)
by Stephen Y.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/30/2014 13:17:59
D&D Basic Set - DM's Rulebook (BECMI ed.) (Basic) The scan of the DM book is pretty good. Prints out well. Quite clear; and cheap at £2.94. I tried finding the error that was mentioned, but couldn't seem to find it ( I might be reading it wrong). Wizards: PDFs of the Expert, Companion, master, etc WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA. You've done a good scan of the basic set; get the others done (or is it too much to ask for?).

Mythic Minis 17: Feats of Seafaring
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Legendary Games
Date Added: 07/30/2014 13:08:48
Mythic Minis 17: Feats of Seafaring An Endzeitgeist.com review This Mythic Mini clocks in at 3 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page content, so let's take a look, shall we? This time, we're all about sea-themed feats, so let's check this out! The mythic version of "Corsair" extends its benefits to any aquatic environment and doubles the bonuses while on board of a ship and also allows you to treat foes as flanked via mythic power. Solid. The "Hoist the Colors" mythic feat allows you to intimidate foes via your flag and, with mythic power, even whole crews/vessels and similar military units - and yes, more power, more severe fear-effect. Awesome, mythic - nothing to complain about! Naval Commander comes as a regular and mythic-augmented version - it allows you to aid another ALL target allies on your ship. Which is damn cool even before expending mythic power to make the bonus LAST. Two thumbs up, especially since bonus to atk is still limited to once per ally/turn! Savy Seafare...

D&D Basic Set - Player's Manual (BECMI ed.) (Basic) A pretty good scan of the Player's Manual. And very good at £2.94. I just wish Wizards would make PDFs of the Expert, Companion, Master, etc.

OneDice Universal Solid game system that forms a great base for GM tweaks and unique setting development. Simple, straight forward rules make one think TWERPS on steroids. Only reason this is not 5-stars is general need to minor ducument reorganization and spell check to easy readability (but these can be overlooked by competent players). Really looking forward to addtional supplements.

Advanced Races 11: Shadow Fey (Pathfinder RPG)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Kobold Press
Date Added: 07/30/2014 10:25:11
Advanced Races 11: Shadow Fey (Pathfinder RPG) There is method to the madness inherent in the shadow fey, amply reflected in this book which distils out the essence of what makes shadow fey tick - at least as well as mortal minds can comprehend. We read a little of the race's history - something about which there is dispute and debate even in shadow fey circles never mind amongst outsiders - and find out how they'd work as player-characters, details equally useful to GMs who wish to use them as fully-developed antagonists. There is copious background on shadow fey society - a complex and ever-shifting structure of feudal relationships that is elitist and hierarchical... and woe betide the shadow fey who forgets his place or acts out of turn! But of course, ALL shadow fey believe themselves to be superior to everybody else, even if there is a distinct pecking order within their own ranks. Shadow fey always take great care in their appearance and attire, meticulous and dressing as finely as they can afford, be in court robe...

Future Heroes powered by Fate Core
by Emma M.
Publisher: Starbright
Date Added: 07/30/2014 07:55:29
Future Heroes powered by Fate Core I have to agree with Joe D on this one. A sad observation about all Starbright's Fate Core products. No actual details on how to apply any of their information to the system; just a lot of half-finished ideas. I came away from this book feeling like I had to write the rest of it.

Chronicles of Blood - Solo War Game
by Chris J.
Publisher: Crystal Star Games
Date Added: 07/29/2014 20:24:24
Chronicles of Blood - Solo War Game I join everyone else in praising these rules--simple, straightforward, and easy to get into to. An excellent gateway game for newcomers, as well as a nice change of pace for veteran gamers. I have noticed an oddity no one else has mentioned: the rules present as a mass fantasy battle game, but the size of a regiment actually makes no difference. Whether a unit contains 3 figures or 103, it is eliminated when its wounds are reduced to 0. Thus, one could field an army containing very, very few miniatures, which is helpful for a beginner who does not own a lot of them. It may not be quite so attractive to someone who is looking for rules to use with large numbers of figures. Nevertheless, this is a very fine piece of work--the author is to be commended....

OneDice Universal

OneDice Universal grubman sez... OK, I purchased this...it's digest size, so its really only about 30 pages of reading. I read the entire rulebook in about an hour. I haven't played it yet, but have played enough games (33 years of role playing) to know how this one stacks up. I'd like to give a comprehensive rules review, but to be honest, giving too detailed a mechanical review would pretty much give away the game, and might actually take away from sales because a descent GM (or game designer) could take the basics and just run with them. Thumbs Up On the one read, I will say it's a pretty nice little light game. Very traditional meat and potatoes skill system stuff (If you are like me and don't care for artsy fartsy games). It has a very streamlined and simple core mechanic that would handle any situation (using a single D6 roll). It also has rules that cover most everything you would expect from a generic game system in the most concise, yet "complete" way possible. It has a satisfacto...

Non-Player Cards Sneak Peek
by Justin M.
Publisher: Ninth Realm Publishing
Date Added: 07/29/2014 16:25:08
Non-Player Cards Sneak Peek A fantastic preview of what's to come with the "Non-Player Cards" project. Great art, and fantastic layout. Ironically, this document, intended only as a preview, actually lends itself to being useful due to the options available on the cards featured within – I can't wait to experience the benefit of the actual full deck. This is worth checking out, even if you didn't back the Kickstarter project.
