T2013- Everytown - First Contact
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 05/14/2010 05:18:10
There's not a lot to this - two small encounters (unmapped), some roleplaying, ally/opposition stats and four pregenerated characters, connecting the campaign background, town description, map and more substantial adventures presented in other products. The trade table, I suppose, is a useful idea. Really it doesn't stand on its own and will only show value as part of an investment in this game line.

Queen Of Crows
Publisher: FR Press
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 05/04/2010 23:16:41
As described, this is an interesting format: a short story, together with a lot more information which, between the "Letter to the Reader" and early draft, provides a much stronger and more detailed context to the entity of the title. The story's worth a read in a general YA-fantasy sort of style. On a gaming site, I should mention that no game stats are included, but the extras easily provide the kind and quality of information a GM would need to derive stats for any chosen game system - so it's almost like a systemless game supplement in that regard.

Tripwire
Publisher: Mongoose
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/25/2010 04:24:34
This is an extended adventure (as you'd hope for the usual asking price) taking players to many or all of the worlds in one subsector, at the risk of, as the author puts it, a rather abrupt end early in the piece with the question "What does this have to do with us?" Some rough editing and the PDF is not bookmarked. Still, a qualified 4 stars, since with a little quick thinking to get past the logical soft spots, it presents plenty of good and varied material.

Plans from the XXth century
Publisher: Three Fourteen Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/22/2010 18:25:26
A good-looking format that should give a very clear idea of the layout of each place if printed at a decent size. Includes one or more interesting and useful adventure hooks / random events for most entries.

A couple of the images are blurred. Usage of space in some designs might raise doubts from knowledgeable players.

The Boarding House at Arkham Street
Publisher: Three Fourteen Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/12/2010 22:33:35
This is a creepy little scenario, written for (though it certainly doesn't require) a casual sort of pace over several sessions, with a copy of one of this publisher's maps as another reviewer mentioned. Although officially systemless, the suggested rules are most compatible with BRP (classic CoC). I don't know if I would go with the Alien reference, myself, but as the text makes clear, it's easily interchanged with something different.

CT-A04-Leviathan
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/08/2010 21:48:21
Unguided exploration into an interesting and unknown (to the PCs) region of space, with many opportunities for conflict and gain. An impressive amount of detail for such a large ship.

Deadlands Dime Novel: Adios A-Mi-Go!
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/04/2010 18:45:05
A strongly visual fiction piece and adventure that bring out well the even-more-grim side of Deadlands and the, er, more Western side of the Mythos.

Dark Raiders of Misty Ridge
Publisher: Magique Productions, Ltd
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/19/2010 01:14:08
As the description suggests, this is an adaptable sort of scenario in which adventurers assist a seaside village against marauding humanoids, with some nicely constructed encounters. I received a copy of this product through the Gamers Helping Haiti bundle.

FSpaceRPG Personality Module rules expansion v1.1
Publisher: FSpace Publications
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/13/2010 01:05:45
Interesting application of the formal concept of personality types, or social styles, to describe characters and the compatibility or clash between them in a way you may not have seen before. The discussions of an additional violence index and of (some) mental illnesses are more sketchy.

It looks as if it should drop in to a different game system with little work, if you want (excluding, obviously, the setting-specific alien species and their adjustments to personality type and violence propensity).

Inspirational horrors from the turn of the 20th century, few of which are entirely about ghosts.

Glad to see an update! This is certainly worth a look to suggest how different kinds of modern weapons might appear in 4e statistics, without attempting to shoehorn them into any campaign assumptions.

Forlakh's Tower - CR 4 D20 Module
Publisher: Rhallen Enterprises
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 02/25/2010 23:17:57
I received this in the "Gamers Helping Haiti" bundle. It's a good short dungeon design, delving into the relics of the evil wizard of a past age named in the title. Background details hint at some very interesting ideas in play for the wider setting to which this is an introduction.

A variety of excellent resources - both thoroughly reliable and imaginative enough to inspire many new ideas for adventures - for any reasonably hard SF system. This really is a lot of research for the price asked. 4.5 stars

Inns of Harn: Drunken Hake
Publisher: Columbia Games Inc.
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 02/13/2010 23:52:31
As advertised, a well-realised mediaeval inn of middling quality, with floor plan and NPCs, together with a wider social description of the town's justice moot that, more or less in the last of six pages, manages to fit in a great deal of useful political understanding and a detailed adventure skeleton.

Spacemaster: Datanet #3
Publisher: Test-Chuck
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 02/13/2010 23:46:21
This issue covers the single, though important, subject of creating alien species and cultures in two parts, firstly in concept, then Spacemaster statistics.

The first, systemless section covers a number of broad questions through the example of a species of photosynthetic turtle-people, illustrating how a slightly odd concept carries through to modify the usual assumptions, with good consideration of alien psychology, nonhuman culture and, just as importantly, why a GM might want to maintain a light hand on such potentially baffling subjects for game purposes.

The statistics-based section had in places a slightly questionable balance of techniques, from my reading, with some frankly odd ideas - rules for soul departure? To be fair, I haven't tried using these rules to construct a Spacemaster species and can't speak for how the total result would balance out in play.

In total, an excellent conceptual source.
