In Harm's Way
Publisher: Better Mousetrap Games

The RPG community has needed a follow-up to the classic FGU PRIVATEERS & GENTLEMEN for years, and this is it. I especially like the ARS-MAGICA-like idea of having multiple characters to run, and the "ensemble" style.

A reasonable mechanical system that feels true to the Napoleonic Age of Sail genre of fiction. Character creation is simple, gameplay is fairly quick.

The rules for ship to ship battles are a bit lacking but if you're not interested in fighting them out (other than as impacts your characters), you could probably dispense with them. But if you just must maneuver little ships on blue cloth, there are a lot of relatively easy rules-sets out there you could probably adapt.

While this genre might not be to some people's tastes, if you want to get a hand in on Lucky Jack Aubrey, Richard Bolitho, or any of the other naval fiction adventurers, this is the game for you.

Bits of the Wilderness: Into the Open

When you need a quick fill-in when your players are tramping across country, this is your pigeon. The writing is very good, the descriptions are above average, and if you only usethe ideas presented, you'll get your money's worth.

The bits are very useful as "improv", the shards are great for inserting into your "grand plan" for an adventure or campaign.

Coyote Trail: Colonial Record
Publisher: Precis Intermedia

An excellent add-on to COYOTE TRAIL. I've always wanted to do something in that period or a bit later--not so much the AWI but the voyageurs out beyond the Mississippi. Between COLONIAL RECORD and COYOTE TRAIL, I've set up and begun a series of adventures with my friends. I daresay if being one of those fighting for independence is more you style, you'll find this title VERY handy.
