Lightspeed: Cargo Manifest
Publisher: Avalon Game Company
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/24/2009 07:20:07
Yet another good, although short, product for the Lightspeed line. Half-page stat blocks with description thoughout, with basic computer drawings. Even though I do not know the Fuzion game system, I found enough information here for plots. There is also a nice glossary at the end explaining some of the terms, making conversion easy.

In Fury Triumphant
Publisher: Storyart
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/03/2008 07:32:14
I enjoy how this setting takes the familiar WWI and II battles into a space opera setting. This book (check out the equally good Rocketship Empire books) puts the players in the Spanish war setting among the Spanish arm of the planets. There are a lot of plot hooks and ideas. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that the book needs a "Recommended Reading & Viewing" section. I would recommend viewing some of the DVDs in the Young Indiana Jones series as some of them take place in this setting and time. Then read some Hemmingway.

Solar Smith and The Sky-Pirates of Arcturus! - PDF
Publisher: Hero Games
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/20/2008 18:07:28
Good pulp setting from the detailed-oriented Hero system, easily convertable to other systems which is the reason I got it. If you do not have Space Hero, you may have trouble with some background game system mechanics, but the storyline is good enough to move things along for any setting.

100 Locations [BUNDLE]
Publisher: Postmortem Studios
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/20/2008 18:02:24
This bundle includes 100 Dark Places, 100 Fantasy Kingdoms, 100 Planets. Some of these products reviewed separately. All include 100 one-page snapshots of places, kingdoms, planets. My favorite is planets. The author really lets his imagination go wild at times. Some planets connected (sometimes literally) to other planets. Systemless ideas for any game.

Fudge Dice!
Publisher: Digital Alchemy
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/20/2008 17:59:12
PalmOS Die Rolling for the Fudge system. You can set difficulty levels and roll both Unopposed and Opposed actions, getting word results on the return. Hope that one day this is updated to include combat and wounding results. A good, free program.

THRILLING TALES: The Golden Idol of Sikral
Publisher: Adamant Entertainment
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/20/2008 17:56:02
Bought purely for the conversion to Fudge/Fate in the back of the PDF. Although the adventure felt a bit standard, the characters were really interesting and made the adventure better.

100 one-page descriptions of fantasy kingdoms with and without magic. Some standard, some bizarre. Some connected to others. Nice.

Instant GM II: On Your Mark, Get Set, GM
Publisher: Avalon Game Company
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/20/2008 17:49:03
The Rugako (spelling?) section in the first Instant GM was fascinating. It shows how a way of telling stories in a different culture could be used for roleplaying games. That advice is back, and is the best part I think. The advice for motivating players is fair.

Truth & Justice: More Power
Publisher: Silver Branch Games
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/20/2008 17:42:34
Good review of powers for the Truth & Justice RPG (Atomic Sock Money). Some game mechanics will NOT translate to more realistic games, or games that carefully section out powers. But I think it is generic enough in places to interest superheroic games. Repeats some material from the Legends Walk line by the same author, and could use some more detailed description for powers to make them usuable in other systems in my opinion (which is the reason I got it, for another rules-lite system).

Evil Genius #1: World Domination (Truth & Justice)
Publisher: Lame Mage Productions
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/20/2008 17:39:16
Interesting evil genius characters for the Truth & Justice RPG (Atomik Sock Monkey). Generic enough to use for other rules-lite systems, even if you do not know the game mechanics. All too short.

Big Robots, Cool Starships
Publisher: White Wolf
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/20/2008 17:37:35
This BESM product is very good, and generic enough for most RPGs. Author David L. Pulver is usually known for the more realistic treatments in GURPS of Robots and Starships, but here gives a good generic treatment. Although written for BESM and TriStat dX, I found it generic enough to use for my Fudge games.

This is the free guide to Star System products. They are systemless adventures. Although short (usually 4-12 pages), they are are very good quality.

QMR - Ten Magical Thingies, vol. 1
Publisher: Silver Branch Games
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/04/2008 07:22:57
Some outrageously creative ideas here (a potion to make you into a swarm of little PCs, a portable steed that may or may not be a horse)

Liked:
Generic enough for any free-from system (Fudge, FATE, Over the Edge)

Disliked:
*All to short.* Some game terms will not make sense if you do not
know the system (MOD, for example)
