Gygax magazine issue #1
Publisher: TSR, Inc.
by Wayne T. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/14/2013 19:21:47
Let me say that I agree with several of the other reviewers in that I feel humbled to even be able to review this new magazine. My roots go back to 1979 when Advanced D&D was just coming out and this first issue took me right back there. The style of the magazine immediately hearkens back to the first few Volumes of the old Dragon magazine. The artwork even triggered old, buried memories of when I first started gaming.

That said, I also would like to respectfully disagree with those reviewers that said there was little content. I have been reading gaming magazines for over 30 years and this was truly the very first issue of ANY magazine that I read cover-to-cover. I can't wait to see what's next and what direction the magazine truly takes.

I would also like to say that I am fairly certain that newer, younger gamers will not agree with this assessment. There was a strong resonance of nostalgia that would be missed by the younger readers. That is not a slam, just a fact. I feel very fortunate to be one of those older gamers and I am greatly encouraged with the surge of younger players. Let's face it. If we don't have "new blood' as it were the hobby would die a sad, slow death.

Bottom line, the artwork, the content and the promise of more in the future lead me to rate this 5/5.

Shadow World Player Guide - The World
Publisher: Guild Companion Publications
by Wayne T. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/07/2010 23:00:31
Wow!... that is the first word that comes to mind as I read through this guide for the first time. First of all, to see new products for my most beloved of all Campaign Settings was almost more than I could stand but then to see the absolutely gorgeous layout my jaw continued its drop to the floor. The guide is truly for the players meaning that it gives nothing away as to the dirty secrets of Kulthea that could potentially spoil it for the players. It gives information on the Heavens, the Essaence (the flow of magic that permeates the world), Geography, Gods and Religion, Races, History, Powers of Note, and finally Languages.

It gives enough information to be informative but also (hopefully) leaves the players intrigued and hungry for more. It is well paced, well written as we've come to expect from T.K. Amthor, and fresh. The fresh aspect is particularly amazing to me simply because this campaign setting has been around since roughly 1989 and I have been a collector of every product from that date onward. And to see something new that feels fresh is a true testament to the writing skills of the author.

Finally, I cannot say enough about the layout. The illustrations are absolutely lavish and of the utmost quality. The presentation is hugely above average and very visual making it a joy to just peruse.

If it sounds like I'm gushing, well, I'm guilty as charged. You simply will not be disappointed with this product.

Maelstrom Fantasy Campaign Setting Worldbook
Publisher: Darkfuries Publishing
by Wayne T. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 02/14/2003 00:00:00
This PDF is simply wonderful! The world of Roil is super rich in history and absolutely chocked full of detail. It is clear that this world has been with the author for a long time and lots of love and care have gone into this product. The maps - especially the greyscale ones - are super detailed as well.

The more I read in this setting the more I want MORE supplements. You simply can't go wrong buying this product.

I must also say that the customer support from this company is beyond measure. There is a mailing list that you can join that sends out little tidbits of campaign information every week or so. I, having joined this bandwagon late in the game, was missing many of the mailings. I emailed Brian to see if I could get the back issues. Within 20 minutes I had *ALL* the backissues plus a thank you from him. Now that's service!!!

The Andwan Legacy
Publisher: 0one Games
by Wayne T. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/22/2002 00:00:00
A fine product and a much needed change of pace for my gaming group. It's a classic mystery with a twist that really caught my group off guard. If you're looking for a dungeon crawl this isn't it.

However, if you're looking for an opportunity to have some excellent roleplaying and using brains rather than brawn to solve an adventure look no further.

Moreover, the adventure is short and should be able to be played out in one night - two at the most. It is a great little side-trek to put in between large adventures.

And for those wondering if combat is totally ommitted, fear not. There are a few encounters one of which is hugely challenging.

The maps are totally gorgeous and definitely of the highest quality. The artwork could use some help. The character drawings are slightly cartoonish and really don't work for me. But, artwork is a highly subjective thing to be judging. You may love the look.

This is definitely worth the price and you won't be disappointed in the quality. Enjoy!
