Crypts of Azarumme
by Jacob S.
Publisher: The Arcane Library
Date Added: 06/24/2018 12:43:52
Crypts of Azarumme Crypts of Azarumme is a short adventure that requires little preparation to run. It allows much room for a DM to add their own features and twists at the expense of being somewhat bare on its own. If you are running short on time, are a beginner DM, or playing with inexperienced players, this adventure would work great as an introdution to the game. The ending easily leads into future adventures. This adventure has enough written story to remain engaging, while leaving enough room that it could be easily worked into an existing campaign....

SHATTER6 Open Roleplaying

SHATTER6 Open Roleplaying Much like a system I have been working on. No character classes, hit points or other endless bookeeping and need of looking up rules every move. Very flexable, very good.

DDAL07-10 Fire, Ash, and Ruin (5e)

DDAL07-10 Fire, Ash, and Ruin (5e) So I ran the adventure after the update was done and while we had fun there are still serious issues with the module. Mostly that there are so many layers piled onto the area. First there's forbiddance which is used to prevent someone else from casting it in the area, of course they can still dispell the forbiddance and it an be recast. Then there's the perpetual darkness, doors of fire that aren't explained at all, wild magic surges, so on and so forth. Keep things simple, you shouldn't try to challenge players by overcomplicating the map. Sadly I probably won't run this one again unless it's requested, there's just not a good enoug reason to....

Angels, Daemons & Beings Between Volume 2: Elfland Edition
by Lee N.
Publisher: Shinobi 27 Games
Date Added: 06/24/2018 08:17:40
Angels, Daemons & Beings Between Volume 2: Elfland Edition The Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG has always prided itself on only needing one rulebook to run the game, with no further expansions planned or required. That said, in my opinion, two books that make the perfect partner to the core rules and should sit olaongside every Judge's copy of DCC RPG are the 2016 predecessor to this title, "Angels, Daemons & Beings Between: Expanded Otherworldly Editon/Dagon Hardcover" and this follow up, the Volume 2: Elfland Edition. Patrons make a fantastic and mysterious addition to any DCC game and none more so when they're elf themed. I am predominantly a DCC Judge so on the rare occassion that I get to take part as a PC, I alwys try and snag myself an elf to play. I love how gloriously chaotic they are, notorious for trying to expand their magical power through dark pacts with supernatural beings, their motives alien to other races and casting their spells with a negative modifier whilst fully clad in metal armour because...whatever! In this tome, you...

DDAL07-03 A Day at the Races (5e)
by Michael N.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 06/23/2018 23:22:02
DDAL07-03 A Day at the Races (5e) Theme and background: The concept of a new kind of race, the Na N’buso’s Haka in this case is a great set up for an adventure! It is very simple to build an atmosphere of excitement and a hint of mystery to get your players involved in the race. Part 1, Talk Derby to Me: Mowbula Utakulu makes a fantastic NPC for building the tone of the race! She can impress upon the party how the details of the race are unknown as this is the first of its kind and she can also talk about the strang deaths of prize winning dinosaurs of late. If the players start asking questions that get them off track her limited common can be put into action, She looks at the party confused and attempts to restate the core points again, thus building in what they are to do and keeping the story on track. The gambling hall/ privite race viewing area is the best opportunity for role playing in the adventure so it should be run with that in mind. The main function is for the players to find out rumors to grow the mys...

Higher Dias Stairs & Other Remixes
by Dawn K.
Publisher: Fat Dragon Games
Date Added: 06/23/2018 00:43:05
Higher Dias Stairs & Other Remixes These files will not print. I keep getting errors when they are being sliced. I have no problems printing any of my other files. I tried to re-save the meshes in my editing software but they will not export as stl files for some odd reason even though they are already stl files and my software does it regularly with no trouble. Something is wrong with these files! It's not a user error. I haven't tried them all as there are tons of files (that's wonderful!!!) but not good if I cannot make them work. I'm so heartbroken as these were exactly what I've been wanting and would've been willing to pay even more for them if they worked correctly. There are errors found with all these meshes which isn't even uncommon with the fatdragongames base sets but once you go to slice them it just will not work at all. It's important to note that I'm using XYZware which is proprietary software that the da vinci printer comes with. It is restricted from other slicing software unless it is flashed (or hack...

GM's Maps #42: Shopping Arcade
by Thomas B.
Publisher: Gethsemane Games
Date Added: 06/22/2018 22:05:45
GM's Maps #42: Shopping Arcade It's a good map, I'm not a big fan of the multi floor shops since they're difficult to map into roll20 but they're usable in this case.

GM's Maps #25: Modern Police Station
by Thomas B.
Publisher: Gethsemane Games
Date Added: 06/22/2018 22:03:33
GM's Maps #25: Modern Police Station Good solid layout, I have 2 issues with the map though which will require a little rework when I use it in roll20. One issue is I don't really understand the flow of the secure vestibule, seems like a hallway is missing. The other issue is the 10m long shooting range, I plan on swapping the backup generator in the basement with the shooting range/armoury in the basement and using the entire civilian wing of the building as a 20m shooting range, although my players will likely never see it.

GM's Maps #15:Apartment Building or Condominium
by Thomas B.
Publisher: Gethsemane Games
Date Added: 06/22/2018 21:59:33
GM's Maps #15:Apartment Building or Condominium Interesting layout for the building and would like more colour, but at the price you pay you can't complain. The one major complaint I have is the apartments are 2 levels making it difficult to port them over to roll20 or even to normal table top. In other Gethsemane maps multi floor rooms makes sense but here it just seems to complicate it. Overall though the apartments I have issues with are placed in a way that switching them to two tiny apartments is easy and works well for some settings....

Lizardfolk: Tokens & Avatars for Virtual Tabletops

Lizardfolk: Tokens & Avatars for Virtual Tabletops In a recent game I came across a lizardfolk. I knew what they looked like from the picture in the Monster Manual, but I really wish we had had these tokens then. They are so well made and I am sure would have increased immersion in that game session. Next time I'll be ready.

Dwarves: Tokens & Avatars for Virtual Tabletops If you are into total game immersion and you play with dwarves, get these tokens and avatars. The are really well made and fun to play with. My favorite is the dwarven champion. Worth the money, for sure!

Friends of the Mask, a Savage Worlds and SCP One Sheet # Quite a good one-sheet # A well executed adventure that will fall a bit flat if the reader isn't familiar with **[SCP](http://www.scp-wiki.net/about-the-scp-foundation)**. I feel like it would be a benefit to include link in the PDF to what **[SCP](http://www.scp-wiki.net/about-the-scp-foundation)** is and what they do.

Human Troops: Tokens & Avatars for Virtual Tabletops I play a lot of virtual games and nobody likes to be represented by something they are not on the computer screen for all to see. This solves that problem and they of course help with game immersion.

CQB: Futuristic Skirmish Miniatures Rules

CQB: Futuristic Skirmish Miniatures Rules There is so much good information in this book. The content seems all encompassing and some of it even feels like bonus material, like the ship designs. They are fantastic! You can tell a lot of hard work was put into it. Definately worth the money.
