Date Added: 05/15/2011 01:47:06
Graphically very nice, but quite campaign-specific as another reviewer mentioned.

Dolm River
Publisher: Brave Halfling Publishing
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 05/15/2011 01:42:23
A pleasant journey across a familiar sketched-out setting, with both straightforward fighting and twists that will take more than swordplay to resolve, tying in the heroes (whether they succeed or fail) to further plots in the ongoing campaign.

The Artifact RPG
Publisher: Store32
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/31/2011 22:19:11
This SF game tied to a single, unusual world (a bit like "Dawning Star" in that sense) uses its own game system. Writing is as you might expect for the price. If that fills a significant gap in your gaming needs, by all means you should take a look. Illustrations are reasonable fillers - some actually a bit better than the cover might suggest.

#30 Haunts for Houses (PFRPG)
Publisher: Rite Publishing
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/11/2011 20:49:52
A very good selection of specific haunts and extended concepts, with several classic effects and others that look useful as a framework for a scenario or haunted location. I might want to rework a bit some occasional overly-gamist traits, such as some of their means of destruction (but the first such mechanism presented, used for two of these haunts, is brilliant).

Production is clean and professional, with my only comment that some of the art selected might be a bit too detailed to work optimally in monochrome at the size used.

Abandon All Hope: Somewhere In Between
Publisher: RPG Objects
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/11/2011 20:37:54
Reads very well and suggests strong possibilities for its setting. Considering that it's an ungoverned maximum-security prison, stranded in space, with extradimensional horrors, the author does well not to make it unrelentingly grim or incomprehensibly warped, but instead use lighter, less threatening scenes, uninvolved characters, rising tension and occasional release to set off the really bizarre and scary parts.

The Temple of Issoth
Publisher: Lone Delver Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/21/2010 17:03:00
A straightforward and soundly constructed foray, presented well with clean design and decent small illustrations. Good reason here to look further at the publisher's paid work.

Infinite Futures Free Preview
Publisher: Avalon Game Company
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/29/2010 23:14:44
Pathfinder compatible? Well, not really, as a quick look at the table on page 6 will show. This is a separate branch of the well-known family tree and I can only guess that Avalon thought that would sell better than "d20 system". Art by Poser, editing by .. from the title page, no-one, though spelling and missed find-replace work is only mildly distracting here. It looks reasonable for third-party work if a new D&D/SF mashup with a medium-light learning curve is what you want, not a standout as SF systems go generally. Free download or not, it should include the OGL.

For a joke product, it's actually a fairly useful item and encounter idea.

Daring Tales of the Space Lanes: Galaxy Guide Sector #01
Publisher: Triple Ace Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/11/2010 02:41:36
A GM might find many of these one-page descriptions useful as starting points to build up an interesting planetary location, or for a quick visit. It's a squishy-soft kind of SF, but unlike some other products, doesn't descend into sheer babbling.

It would have been good for a setting supplement to include a few maps, landscapes or illustrations of local oddities, and also a few game statistics for unique local conditions, creatures or characters, but for the price asked, it is what it is.

Modern Dispatch (#83): Dramatis Personae: Roaring 20?s
Publisher: RPG Objects
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]

A well-considered selection of characters to describe. The Prophecy rules look very interesting, though raise some minor mechanical questions for me.

I like the idea of this in general terms. The examples are well described. Costs seem seriously off and arbitrary between themselves too.

HELLAS: Map of the Known Worlds
Publisher: Khepera Publishing
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/28/2010 07:52:23
It's mostly a map of the Mediterranean, stylised and overlaid with a hex grid and some star graphics, but having said that, it looks very nice and makes imaginative use of its sources.

The Derelict Ship of the Ancients
Publisher: Nomadic Delirium Press
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/28/2010 07:43:27
Interesting background, good level of detail to run these encounters and let the players know what they find. The ship still has plenty of active systems and the Ancients are not all that impressive, so it's more The Mostly Intact Ship of Those Other Guys. Maps seem to be poor digital photos of some pencil line drawings, which look bad and are barely readable, though to be fair, it's only been a few weeks since I saw a similar level of effort from a much better-known publisher.
