Treasure Map: Island of Sorrow I
Publisher: Raging Swan Press
by Eric A. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 03/22/2012 14:47:01
Pencil-like drawing of a coastline. It could be used as a player hand-out as flavor only.

Marvel Heroic Roleplaying: Basic Game
Publisher: Margaret Weis Productions
by Eric A. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 03/22/2012 14:41:22
This game is okay if you want to inject some roleplay into your Marvel Heroes miniatures game, but as a stand alone system it is a bit too cumbersome. The dice mechanic is okay but not snappy like comic book action should be.

Also, the lack of character gen rules is glaring. Playing the Avengers is cool and all, but without being able to inject your own ideas and characters into it, it just seems very masturbatory. I do not want to play a hero fan-fic.

I am not a fan of established IP hero games and this one reenforces that.

Public Domain Super Hero Clip Art #8
Publisher: DM Studios
by Eric A. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 03/22/2012 14:25:47
Black and white and color versions are useful. The quality of the art itself is very stylized but not horrible. I could see these being used as player hand outs or web page reference pictures.

Plus they are under a dollar.

100 Last Names For Fantasy Adventurers, Set 1
Publisher: Fishwife Games
by Eric A. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 03/22/2012 14:20:57
It is what is says it is and that's okay.

Sometimes I don't want to waste my time coming up with a last name for a random NPC so charts like this are invaluable time savers for me.

The names are fantastical but not ridiculous.

Also, it's free... come on you can't beat that.

Magnificent Manors & Tatty Taverns - Game Master´s Survival Pack Volume I
Publisher: The Chaos Society
by Eric A. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 03/22/2012 14:16:38
Fantastic!

I am a sucker for floor plans and The Chaos Society completely deliver on this. They are high quality and detailed. Perfect for any GM running a medieval game. The manor and roadhouse maps can also be used for any contemporary setting as well.

Shadowrun: Safehouses
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
by Eric A. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 03/22/2012 14:10:28
A very nice supplement for those who are serious about their Shadowrun.

The key feature for me was the breakdown of the different types of safe houses and their lifestyle costs. The examples are well done to.

Nice pen and ink color picture of a female using mystical powers. It would be ideal to use as a visual aid on a character sheet or player hand out. Could also be used on a website.

Factory Of The Androids [Modern/Near Dark Future Theme Music]
Publisher: Fishwife Games
by Eric A. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 02/18/2012 20:53:10
Overall Score: 4
Utility: 3 (instrumental/techno music)
Artistic Appeal: 3 (Not overly complex but enjoyable)
Cost: 5 (Can’t beat a dollar)

Comments:
Factory of the Androids is certainly useful for background ambiance for a dystopian near future game. I can see it also useful for background music for a website with a similar theme. The music isn’t overly complex or technical in composure but that can actually enhance its appeal. If you are using music for ambiance, you generally do not want the music to take center stage.

Survival Horror Urban Magic Set 1: The Amazing Zandi
Publisher: DARKMOOK Paper Miniatures
by Eric A. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 02/14/2012 00:18:21
Utility: 5 (Very useful for any urban fantasy or horror campaign)

Artistic Appeal: 4 (Good computer generated artwork)

Cost: 4 (Decent priced for a few color miniatures)

Comments:
At first I was a bit put off by the thought of paper miniatures, but these are quality. The main character comes in standard pose and casting (a green glow over the standard pose’s hands), and there are 4 mummies… but the kicker is that there is a flying carpet for the main character to ride.
