Broken Gears
Publisher: CURS Publishing
by TBeholder C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/12/2012 12:50:54
Simplified, but viable mechanics. Things like PO:S&P -but-even-more split of Dexterity vs. Agility with dropping Athletics skill there, while strength and health are merged - dubious, though not too bad.

Well made setting. Of course, the idea to build thoroughly postapocalyptic gaslight fantasy is remarkable in itself.

Spellbound Kingdoms Combat Primer
Publisher: T. Shield Studios

Very interesting.
Great stuff:
* Styles choreography.
* Motivation mechanics.
Flaws:
* Generic weapon/armor "quality", while has a point (heh), ignores things important for the fencing era tactics. E.g. weapons designed to punch through a specific sort of armor, but not inflict on unarmored more damage than a lowly knife. Conversely, light mail good is good vs. slashing weapons, but not much against crushing or stabbing. * Given that "interesting tactics" seems to be the main advantage, it's a flaw.
* A warrior can't "go through his forms in the coat closet" and burst out with the best move. But he's free to go through his forms against one opponent and then turn with the best move at another, who just walked in?
Dubious:
* Some styles' graphs look plain weird, starting with archery.
* 1d6+1 gives the same average as 1d8, and so on. Is it really better to increase/decrease die size than give a flat bonus/penalty to the same? It counts as simple with 1-2 dice set, but SK switches them every round, so this only increases dice-juggling without obvious benefit.

Ye Olde Shoppe

Quantity-wise: good lists.
Detail-wise: at times gives some details, but gallops over others going to be equally important in the game; "Tech-levels" are rather... primitive, heh.
Usability: clean, structured, has nice little things like coloring cp/sp/gp

Wyrmstone Almanac TY109

An attempt to reincarnate "The Chronicles of the Princess Ark"? A good idea, but its implementation obviously falls short.
Not bad, but most entries fail to go beyond general campaign sketchbook stage.

Plain stupid "exploding dice" from AD&D firearms + an Excessively Buxom Pirate Wench (TM) as "art" + lyrics of "The Pirate's Song" by Landon given a fancy alias and squeezed to one side =
= meh
