StockArt Covers: Leather Bound Book V
by Iain F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/20/2006 00:00:00
The resolution of these images is only 96 dpi, and so parts of the design may seem "blocky" at full size. However for the price these covers are a nice buy.



LIKED: The design is interesting.

DISLIKED: The resolution could stand to be somewhat higher, even at the expense of a larger file, and a somewhat higher price.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

This purchaser did contact us about the resolution, although he declined to pay a slightly higher price for 300dpi resolution. These covers are intended as a low cost alternative for small start up companies, or for larger companies producing a budget line and wanting an alternative to $200+ cover art for a single cover (lets face it we give you 7 alternatives for only $3, a possible saving of around $1400), we think we did a good job on these for a very low relative price, and are glad that this customer was satisifed with the result. The resolution and size of the graphics is clearly stated in the advertising material for the product. For publishers or other buyers interested in this product or similar we can alter the Design, DPI and the bleeds to your specification for a low one off payment, to cover in house costs
SFX Skills: Enochian Theurgy
by Malcolm M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/14/2006 00:00:00
A well-produced, inexpensive way to bring white, or angelic-sourced magic, into your d20 Modern campaign.

It departs from the standard d20 Modern rules, in that all the Enochian FX detailed in this product function as skills in gameplay, not spells in the traditional d20 sense. Prerequisite feats help GMs keep the ability to use Enochian magic as rare as the campaign requires, while the concept of power strain and power exhaustion prevents players from using their abilities at will, all the time, every time.

It's not a comprehensive product, but at such a low price, it would be greedy to expect it to be. Ambitious GMs will see the general pattern of FX skills checks and balances the book sets up, and will be able to "fill in the blanks" for any abilities they feel ought to be there.


LIKED: --- Enochian magic -- angel-provided magic, as per the apocryphal Book of Enoch from the Biblical era -- seems an obvious d20 Modern counter to all the villainous diabolic sorcery floating about in d20 Modern games, and yet not even the Modern core rules have explored this idea very successfully. This product by F.J. Eastman is a good start in the right direction.

--- The book sports a nice, clean design and comes in both a standard and a printer-friendly version. The artwork won't necessarily set your world on fire, but the overall look of the product is pleasing.

DISLIKED: Not criticisms, merely notes for potential purchasers:

--- Be advised that one of the main virtues of this product is that it is cheap. As such, don't expect the world of it.

It touches on the general concept of Enochian magic, explains how to use FX as skills in your d20 Modern games, and provides a handful of FX skill "powers" for game use. That's it.

Don't expect some exhaustive catalogue of FX skill powers for every situation, and every conceivable character concept, at every level of gameplay, or you'll be bitterly disappointed.

This is an inexpensive product which introduces some basic concepts, provides nine example FX skill powers you can use in-game at varying levels (skills are not bound by character level, after all), and then the product basically points the way from there.

If you want more powers and more detail, you'll have to do the work yourself. You get what you pay for here.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied

Art by Shinkei - Magi
by Jonathan G. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/05/2006 00:00:00
Easily the nicest of the three art packages I've downloaded by Shinkei, these pictures are at a reasonable resolution that would make it possible to print the majority of them at about half a page in size, or larger with a little crafty use of graphical packages. The main criticism I have is that several of the magical effects depicted in the pictures are extremely gaudy and, coupled with the fact that these are 3D rendered pictures, makes them look like screenshots from a PC game. Of the 12 pictures included, I would be happy to use eight of them, and the remainder aren't exactly terrible just a little fake looking.

Definately worth the money if you're strapped for cash and need art for a fantasy product.



LIKED: Many nice, evocative pictures

DISLIKED: Some overly gaudy spell effects ruin otherwise acceptable pictures.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Very Satisfied

Art by Shinkei - Fantasy Pack 1
by Jonathan G. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/05/2006 00:00:00
Good pictures in general, but some models are used several times and a couple of the pictures are at low resolutions, making them only suitable for quarter-page illustrations at most. The pictures are all 3D rendered, but competently so and do not look too false.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

Art by Shinkei - Scifi Pack 1
by Jonathan G. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/05/2006 00:00:00
Several good action shots in this pack, but then again there are several rather bland ones (five in total) that appear to be just the same character standing there in slightly different costumes and slightly different poses with little or no background. There are also very few men in these pictures, in fact the only one I can see is a rather nondescript security guard type person being stabbed through the chest from behind by a female assassin. Also, one of the pictures suffers from floating shadow syndrome (the character's shadow is projected onto the rear wall, but the surface she is standing on has no shadow making her own shadow appear to hover in mid air as if she were jumping). A couple of the pictures are also at far too low a resolution to use as anything but quarter page illustrations. All in all I'd say that I'd be happy to use about half of the pictures in this package, but it's still not bad at the price.


LIKED: Some good action scenes

DISLIKED: Several very bland pictures, one model gets used far too much, and there is a severe lack of male characters.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

Very nice product. More details with dealing with the aftermath. Now with more book like The Zombie War:WWZ. Year of the Zombie going to rock real hard. Keep it coming. It will give you information and enough to get your brain jumping about what the players can come up against. Just have to worry about new groups wanting to save the world NOW!


LIKED: Fills in some gaps and saves me some time. Thank you!
