Allegories of the Way-Volume 4
Publisher: Weapon Press
by Ben B. [Verified Purchaser]

I love this series of comics.

They have a strong Christian theme, focusing on angels warring within man against the demons tempting man and of course the biggest challenge to them is man's own willingness for sin and self destruction. This is no "Chick" comic meant to go "Boo!" like a cliche morality play, it's deep and with great feeling. And it's a lot of work and an excellent story and free, they don't even hammer you for donations though you can on the publisher's webpage.

Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG
Publisher: Goodman Games
by Ben B. [Verified Purchaser]

Simply excellent.


I've grown up with RPGs in the background, considered myself one of the early "Munchkin" gamers...
"Go play Atari, kid, this stuff is too...complex for you..."
---Thought balloon "If he sees our Heavy Metals and that topless lady pewter figure and tells Mom..."


But I've played D&D/AD&D and others for years, sadly not much after a year or so into the 00s


Reading this, and I got the "Free RPG" a year ago, it's well worth the price. I'm starting to like "Old school" rpgs. Oh, I do not bash the future and idolize the past, I simply like the imperfect RPG worlds of past times versus the more slick, modern worlds created by big businesses. They have better writers, artists, etc. But I like the RPGs that were hashed out in a bunch of adventures and kind of formed consensual mish-mash fantasy worlds. Being real geeky I hope there's "Oerth" somewhere in the multiverse, but oh, well...


So, it made me feel like a kid again, but I've played enough RPGs to "Run" this in my head and it's brilliant. Enough chaotic/offbeat/old school to be random, enough experience in people making it that the problems with the old rules aren't out to inspire another "Nodwick". Don't get too nerdy/attached to characters, though. Plenty of real death, encounters too powerful to charge in fighting.


I'll note they did a "Recommended Reading" list in the back which was a photo of a pile of books. Many of these are in my list. One note, and I'm not saying ill, but there's no Clark Ashton Smith despite there being clear CAS influence, notably the "Vombis Mold and Vombis Zombie" but big deal!


Now, as a PDF. Obviously it reads perfect on my computer using default PDF viewer software and Corel PDF Fusion.
I also have a Toshiba Thrive tablet. On this it reads very well, though a few pages towards the beginning, the ones with photographs with text imposed over don't show up, but I can read the full thing OK. Likewise subsequent modules I've bought the two released as of this date of this comment work perfectly on all screens.

The Dungeon Alphabet
Publisher: Goodman Games

I bought this on a lark and loved it!

Full of very good, inspirational material, the alphabet is really a nice random springboard for adventures/encounters, etc. that reaches far beyond simple geomorphs and monster tables. Well worth the price for reading fun alone for anyone into RPGs/DM'ing.

Allegories of the Way:Angels and Souls Volume 1-The CUT

I love this series a lot.
Don't know if what I can say can do it justice or not, but here goes...


I'm a late comer to belief and I won't go into any personal story or ram the KJV down your throat.
This book isn't about scaring you with the "Fire and brimstone" issue and legalism.
One man's opinion it shows how you-know-who loves you so much no matter who or what you are.
