Lightning League (Quantum Engine)
by Deedee O. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/22/2021 18:31:58

I like Lightning League. There is a lot of detail to paint a general picture of a post World War Two type of environment with enough elements of the 40s B-Movie fantastical to give players permission to feel a bit light hearted when going over the topic material. Giant Ants? Check. Zombies? Check. Evil Scientists, Robots, and Rocket Packs? Oh Yes! Some of the aside commentary by the author does end up triggering a few laughs as well.

Another thing I like about this is the collection of artwork that has been gathered together to illustrate the potential adventures within. I find old style illustrations to be fascinating and I love how they're given a nod in this.

Ship Dossier: Kalevala Class Small Pickets
by A customer [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/07/2021 02:23:31

Great value for money. Terrific ship design. Good example of a distributed hull. Thanks for the excellent product. I'll look for more from Surreal Design.

Ship Dossier: Kalevala Class Small Pickets
by Chris K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/11/2020 14:43:34

I highly recommend this product to any 2d6 SciFi GM looking for a new ship to add to their game. This book is incredibly good value for money, crammed with detailed colour plans, descriptions and ideas. The ship presented is an interesting design, different in shape and layout to the usual variations on a wedge or cylinder, and there is sound reasoning behind the design choices ( as explained in the text ). The descriptions and plans are clear and the variations sketched out extend the possible uses of the platform and its components beyond mere picket boat, and suggest several “adventure seeds”.

Thank you for the review Chris! I'm busy with a couple more deck plans. I hope you'll stay tuned.
Dieselpunk in a Nutshell
by Zargothrax M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/22/2019 14:43:17

Raygun gothic and pulp sci-fi aren't deiselpunk. Learn your subgenres before claiming to be enough of an authority to publish a supplement.

Dieselpunk in a Nutshell
by Omer J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/11/2017 01:57:51

This is a ruleset-neutral system for generating Dieselpunk-style settings, either randomly or by choosing between various options. Dieselpunk, for those unfamiliar with the term, is the aesthetic of the 1930's to the 1950's, where the Diesel engine ruled supreme over the real world and the Rocketship (and Raygun!) over the science-fiction imagination.

The product serves as a source of inspiration for creating setting and adventures along the lines of an 1930's comic book or 1940's space-pulp tale. There are approximately 20 1d6 rolls, each giving you six detailed options, such as what superscience technology exists and what stars and planets you can go to. Each option is detailed and well-written, well-built to spark your imagination.

I would have loved to see a more detailed discussion of the Dieselpunk genre in term of concrete rules, using one or more rulesets, such as stats for the various technologies presented here, but this product is excellent in helping you build an imaginative retro-sci-fi setting.

Alien Capsules Book One
by Raymond M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/08/2017 10:08:04

Provides enough information to inspire the imagination and encourages using variant and "off-type" examples. Rob also sugessts having your alien adversaries work together - as if they weren't enough of a challenge alone! The Skels on page 10 are my new favorite nighmare. They are original and terrifying - I don't want to spoil it, get your own copy and find out! Recommended.

World Guide: Zaonia
by Raymond M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/11/2017 09:06:41

I've been following the evolution of this setting - because you're not just getting a world book, but potentially an entire campaign setting - since it's very beginning, and am very pleased to see available as a complete book! There are two things I like best about the Zaonia world book. First, it seems like every section, even every paragraph, offers me a new adventure hook I could use in a game. While the book doesn't itemize these in a list somewhere, the story being told in the text is rich with possibilities. Second, the setting, the world, the places and animals, all have personality. This is neither a dry text full of sterile facts and stats, nor is it a novel-pretending-to-be-a-game-book that railroads a group along a narrow path. The Zaonia world book is full of interesting locations, colorful characters, and is presented in enough detail that it feels like there is an actual planet out there I could visit...just as soon as I can afford something better than Low Passage! Recommended.
