MT DTRPG Guide to MegaTraveller
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/16/2010 17:33:13
Mostly a number of excerpts from MT books, which presents the era in the authors' words but unfortunately doesn't give me the information that I wanted concerning publication dates. A guide should be a bit more objective. I'm positive I've seen a better map, though, to be fair, it may have been in a later release.

CT-A08-Prison Planet
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]

A very different view of SF that resonates with all sorts of movies and TV of later date. It's strongly slanted to a particular outcome but still useful source material for different plots.

Useful run-down on various sabotage devices and booby-traps of the period. d20 stats look reliable.

Daring Tales of Chivalry #04: Castle Fairstone & The Madness
Publisher: Triple Ace Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/12/2010 02:17:27
Two excellent scenarios combining social division, faith, faerie legends and strange magic with a good amount of swordplay. Both might leave few opportunities, beyond simple talking, for any priest-type characters, but it shouldn't be hard to fit in ways to remedy that.

Solar Smith and The Sky-Pirates of Arcturus! - PDF
Publisher: Hero Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/11/2010 05:13:59
A fascinating concept with an amusing visual theme to its technology. Each element of the setting felt a bit underdeveloped to me, suggesting some period series or author that I could drop in to juice it up and pull it together a bit more, so maybe a page or so on those potential sources would have been helpful. Fully developing two or three adventures for the setting perhaps could have given it more sinew. It's possible, I suppose, that I'm holding this to a narrative standard that most of the pulp writers themselves would have struggled to meet.

A fine collection of holy blades and their histories, dedicated to a series of very different interpretations of Good.

I'm left with a few questions after reading this, particularly over the .. reinvention, I suppose you'd call it, of unholy water. The salesperson on the cover is presumably not Krazy Kragnar, unless he's been drinking some of his own concoctions.

Well-written description for the Warrior, Rogue, Mage rules of a selection of items that, essentially, you'll find in a gamemaster's guide of any edition for well-known RPGs.

FSpaceRPG Boarding Action Scenario BETA
Publisher: FSpace Publications
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/20/2010 21:22:35
The price is about right for a very straightforward combat set-up in an early space opera setting (Solar System, hyperdrive just coming in) with really not enough to it to present significant problems fitting it in with a different background.

Leverage: The Quickstart Job
Publisher: Margaret Weis Productions
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/20/2010 05:53:40
This has an interesting structure, with ways for different team members to assist the lone-hacker types who traditionally have posed a problem for game play and a "wrap up" phase that changes the narrative around quite radically. The rule system looks like a pretty simple little toy, but maybe the full game shows more subtleties.

Witchblade #85
Publisher: Top Cow
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/16/2010 04:25:10
I was expecting .. more, but no doubt, since I praised an earlier part of this arc for its restraint, I can't have it both ways. The big finish seems more manipulative than epic.

Great issue! It's definitely out with the old, in with the new. Things begin moving along and the scope of the conspiracy begins to appear, after a dilatory previous couple of episodes.

Castlemourn Cortex Quickstart
Publisher: Margaret Weis Productions
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/06/2010 21:40:18
Treatment of magic and fantasy creatures in Cortex seems to work well here, promising a strong alternative fantasy system in the making.

The sample adventure and its setting have a bit more of a folkloric feel than many standard fantasy offerings. I wonder how players used to other settings will respond to some of the more direct plot-driving events.
