Sartar Player's Primer
Publisher: Issaries
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/17/2010 18:00:47
Very informative introduction to Glorantha, particularly on culture and religion. I didn't see much mention of nonhumans.

The Black Desert Excerpt#1: The Ship's Log in Detail
Publisher: Blue Max Studios
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/17/2010 17:45:35
Essentially "how to read the ship record form", this gives a useful look at the technology of the setting and space combat system.

VIKINGS (rpg)
Publisher: The Le Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/15/2010 19:24:01
The authors know their stuff and express it in d20 rules by some mechanical changes that are worth a look in themselves.

Encounters Series 0: The Priest and the Hangman
Publisher: Corvus Lunaris Ltd
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/14/2010 21:00:00
An unusual encounter setup displays a skilful hand for drama and characters. The crowd rules are an interesting look at a fairly well-worn question.

[Spycraft] Strike Force 7
Publisher: Super Genius Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/14/2010 19:01:26
The Egyptian theme is nicely done and overall Spycraft seems like a good system choice. I thought some of the mechanics were a bit soft. There's an odd tension between mostly following the Saturday morning cartoon genre and a sort of midnight-black reimagining of it that threatens to show through in places - maybe still-lingering hurt suggested by some of the real-world alternatives to "Skorpion" mentioned here and there.

Hammersong's Legacy
Publisher: Samardan Press
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/14/2010 18:50:30
Skilfully files the numbers off more recent games and settings for the basic rule set to produce what ought to be a compelling and dangerous field for adventures, as well as a wide-ranging system update. Well bookmarked, but I felt the need of more maps.

Tankard Tales:Comeback Inn
Publisher: Myth Merchant Press
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/14/2010 04:44:42
A good-looking and practical set of maps, amusing description (you can probably guess the setup) and encounter in the cellar for the titular inn, leading into a foray against some chaos-corrupted humanoids menacing the settlement.

DM Sketchpad - August 2010
Publisher: Purple Duck Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/09/2010 21:22:09
Some really nice entries here that fit with what I'd like to see in a game - others that don't, but I think anyone could say that out of over 80 pages of free content. Besides more substantial game additions than you'll see in most freebies, this gives insightful previews into a range of current releases.

CT-G06- Dark Nebula
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/08/2010 03:46:01
This is a mostly self-contained wargame of space fleets and world invasions that happens to take the names of antagonists and a location that later became part of the official Traveller universe - if it has anything to say about Traveller canon, my knowledge isn't deep enough to extract it. Text seems to have been retyped with some remarks about later developments. Maps (randomly assembled for each session of play) were well scanned but some of the counters are a bit blurred. Mechanically, the balance of forces and treatment of neutrals produce some interesting aspects.

Blessed by Poison (4e)
Publisher: Sneak Attack Press
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/08/2010 03:31:14
For a simple introductory adventure, it shows some nicely thought out encounter design and the author knows when to go all out with the creep factor. Looks good for the future.

D100 Discoveries Series: Temple, Castle and Wilderlands
Publisher: Zodiac Gods Publishing
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/24/2010 19:37:24
Each of these suggestions is brief, but full of possibilities. Well worth a look to spark a quick idea for a new plot twist or adventure. Some problems with word usage.

CT-AM3-Vargr
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/18/2010 21:34:28
This supplement spends so much of its space telling me that Vargr are unpredictable, prone to change, variable from place to place and so on that it ends up presenting much fewer concrete descriptions of differences from humanity than some of the other comparable releases. Includes an adventure and basic sector information (zoom in, or get a good printer to read the maps).

LotFP Weird Fantasy Role-Playing Deluxe Edition
Publisher: Lamentations of the Flame Princess
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/18/2010 21:19:31
Some really nice updates and clarifications to the Basic D&D standard in a somewhat grim, low fantasy mood. Given a few published adventures to back it up, I'd say this deserves to become a significant new standard for the old school.

Monster Menagerie: The Kingdom of Graves
Publisher: Rogue Genius Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/18/2010 02:55:30
Nicely detailed creatures designed around the theme of family and feudal rulership. There are only eight entries and one or two are mostly variants of familiar undead, but it seems reasonable value for its cost.

Space Opera: Star Sector Atlas 3: Azuriach Imperium
Publisher: Fantasy Games Unlimited
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/17/2010 07:27:26
More than a little repetitive and refers in places to 'twin worlds' from earlier products without further explanation. Perhaps I'm just cynically less inclined to give the benefit of the doubt to the diabolical Master Race and ever-dashing Resistance doggies. Scan is watery on many pages, no bookmarks.
