Blank Slate Maps Vol. 1: 10 Towns & Villages
by Singh K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/14/2012 17:37:00
If you're looking for a MAP, this isn't it. These are simple pictures, the most complex of which is what you see on the cover picture. There are no grids on the images, no scale, and very little to distinguish one building from the next. 'Details' such as buildings and foliage appear to be randomly stamped about without the rhyme or reason which should dictate the development of a town or village. You get very little for your $5 with this product.

Blank Slate Maps Vol. 1: 10 Towns & Villages

This is a fairly good product if you are looking for simple, clean maps that you want to edit for your own game. The maps are presented as individual jpeg files allowing you to edit them in even the most basic photo editing program. Two versions of each map are provided, color and B&W. Included also are GIF images of compasses so you can imbed these into the maps as you see fit. At 150 dpi, the largest file size is just over 500 Kb, making them easy to load. I would have preferred at least 300 dpi, as I think you can still get manageable file sizes (about 1 Mb) and better quality that way.

My biggest disappointment with the maps is the lack of a scale, either on the maps themselves, or as a GIF image that I could include. I really don't know how big the towns are, and that makes it a drawback to using them. Sure, I could include my own scale, but if compasses are going to be provided, a few different scale bars would be nice as well.

The price is reasonable, at just under a dollar per map I feel that I have gotten my money's worth. It would be nice to have had more maps, but I suppose I'll have to see if they do a Volume 2.

Circle Seven
by Justin I. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/23/2007 00:00:00
I've loved all of the products released by ZNG. They have just the right mix of comics and camp. C7 is no exception.

The background on the band is quite an entertaining read. That???s a definite plus of ZNG releases, they always entertaining to read in addition to being well statted.

Deathklock of MTV???s Metalocalypse came to mind while reading this supplement and I wonder if that was part of Mr. Curry???s inspiration. That being said I think Deathklok would make perfect background music for a game using C7.

These guys will definitely be interesting foes for teen/college age heroes, though old rockers could just as easily face off against Circle Seven.



LIKED: Nearly everything. The band rocks and make interesting villains. I thought the roadie info was quite helpful and I love the HQ and vehicle descriptions.

DISLIKED: While it's a cool concept I wasn't a big fan of Callie, but she still a very interesting character.

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied

The Graveyard Gang
by Nathan C. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 10/31/2006 00:00:00
If you are looking to cheesy horror up your Mutants and Mastermind game or provide a comedic fright to your campaign world, you might want to send out an invitation for The Graveyard Gang to haunt your next M&M session.

The Graveyard Gang is a Mutants and Mastermind 18- page supplement that details six ghoulish inspired adversaries to throw at your party. The PDF includes the descriptions and statblocks for the six silver-age style villains. Again the style is more cheesy horror than actual horror The solid writing details some scary descriptions, but nothing that will send you ghasting, and they are not suppose to. The way the villains are written is that of the kind of evil gangs you saw in comic books and on television in the 80s. Most are a bit over the top and their motivations pretty much stop at having fun and causing some havoc.

The author understands the cheesiness of the characters and provides solid writing to match. The link between the six individuals and how they interact is well integrated and creative. The actual villains themselves are not as creative as their backgrounds are, most of which consist of typical powers and abilities seen elsewhere in the Superlink universe. But this is expected when the aim is cheesy rip offs of classic movie villains. The flavor is well crafted to make you forget about the uninteresting statblocks and more on the story of this b-movie gang.

For the DM
One of the coolest concepts in the book is the boneyard, a unique dimension where it is Halloween all the time. Though the description is only a few paragraphs its vivid enough to let your imagination run wild with the possibilities for it. It also provides a place where you can insert a cheesy plot line in an otherwise serious campaign world.

There are also several fun adventures at the back of the book. None of them are save the world impact but they will provide a good distraction.

None of the villains impressed me greatly, but I have always been a fan of Jason ripoffs so I?d have to go with ?The Slasher? as the most useful of the bunch.


The Iron Word
The Graveyard Gang is not going to provide an overly serious threat most groups, but thye will give a good challenge. The villains range from a psycho witch to an old mummy to a woman with a pumpkin on her head, none of which is going to provide an incredible BBEG. However, if you are interested in inserting some light hearted scary or Halloween fun, take a trip to the Boneyard and pick up the Graveyard Gang.



LIKED: - good ole fashion campy humor
- the adventures in the back are silly but cool for that kind of campaign
- hilarious artwork.
- It does what it sets out to do, is well organized and comes in black and white and color formats.

DISLIKED: - sometimes the cheese factor was a bit too much. Even for Scooby Doo fans.


QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied

The Graveyard Gang
by Justin I. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/25/2006 00:00:00
I bought it yesterday and I like it. It's pretty campy, but still rather interesting. All of the characters are quite interesting, though Abra's definitely my favorite.

I love the idea of the Boneyard. I always thought it would be cool to have a dimension like that and I'm glad to see that other M&M players/creators thought it would be a good idea as well.



LIKED: The Boneyard is a great idea and a nice dark tribute to a certain film.

DISLIKED: Not much, overall I liked everything.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied

The Graveyard Gang
by Simon B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/23/2006 00:00:00
I picked up the Graveyard Gang and I have to say that I like it. It is written with a certain level of B-rated horror film campiness but the characters can easily be played with a darker side.

I fully intend on adding these characters to my campaign world and I cannot wait to use the Bone Yard.

I'd recommend this product to anybody that likes a little (campy) horror fun!!


LIKED: The characters are fun and there is enough information to provide a solid world.

DISLIKED: Not much... I really like the product

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied
