Other Dust
Publisher: Sine Nomine Publishing

When I first saw the announcement of Other Dust, a while a go, the cover caught my attention and blew me away. I knew immediately I wanted to run a game with this system. Being able to use this with SWN is awesome.

I purchased the softcover+pdf bundle, read the pdf and went back online and ordered a hardcover copy as well. That is how awesome I think this is. The game system is similar to SWN, because it is compatible with it. The character creation is super simple (skills was the only hard part, but I understood it after re-reading the cost chart).

The pdf is amazing, filled with awesome sandbox advice, charts and info for your sandbox and the premade campaign area in the back is useful as well.

I LOVE the System Quick Summary Sheet to hand out to players, as it has the basics of all they will need. I did notice one mistake on either the character sheet (my guess is this is where the mistake is) or the class description for the Speaker class. On the character sheet it gives them athletics as a skill, but in the description it does not.

I would suggest anyone who is even remotely interested in post-apocalypse gaming pick this book up and USE it. I am already planning my players adventures in this world!

No doubt a 5 out of 5 (even with the two little blips), and ranks up there with SWN and Red Tide.

The Crimson Pandect: A Handbook of Eldritch Lore
Publisher: Sine Nomine Publishing

This is a quick review of this new book from Sine Nomine Publishing. While I love Red Tide and An Echo, Resounding, I think The Crimson Pandect lacks something the others do.

While I do think this book is excellent just as the other two Red Tide books, this one is too focused in my opinion, where the other two are more open ended and have quite a lot of useful information. This book provides excellent and flavourful new magic-user classes (which I do enjoy) and ways to include them in your campaign setting from the Red Tide one.

The other chapters which include building towers, cabals, magic item creation rules and tables for magic-user's spell books, motivations among other things. These chapters are good as well (I do enjoy the magic item creation rules provided here, even if I do not allow magic item creation in my current Labyrinth Lord game), but I feel are just missing something that the other two books had.

Overall I would recommend picking up the pdf and if you like the book then order a hard copy, but if you want to save money order the combo as I did. I would rank this book the 3rd best of the Red Tide books, but a well above average RPG book as it is filled with excellent flavour and different ideas for the magic-user classes.

Well I must say that this is one hell of an amazing product. It combines my favourite elements to use in B/X D&D and Labyrinth Lord: undead, ancient ruins, mysteries and swamps. It is fantastic and well written. The author does a fantastic job in here and adds some interesting elements to spice up an already excellent site-based adventure.

Just waiting for my hardcover to arrive, but I had ordered the PDF back when it was released. Cannot recommend this enough!
