Wrath & Glory - Forsaken System Player's Guide
Publisher: Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.
by Philip C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 02/11/2021 07:29:46

Book adds much more detail and expands on many of the source material presented in the Core Rulebook. It does concentrate on the Imperium and the core six planets of the system which is not a bad thing and I am looking forward to another expansion for the Xenos, Traitros and Heretics.

Wrath & Glory: The Graveyard Shift
Publisher: Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.
by Philip C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/25/2020 12:21:21

In the grim darkness of the Warhammer 40K universe even a simple walk through a graveyard is complicated, especially when the graveyard takes up the entire moon and making food and tools out of the bodies is normal. Short simple adventure which can launch others adventures. Only downside is as played players do not get a choice about going on the mission but that is way to easy to fix.

An exact copy of the original material. Good to complete a collection and an interesting adventure completing the Traveller mythology.

Ebook: Fate of the Kinunir
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Philip C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/19/2017 18:37:10

I wanted very much to like this book since I am a huge fan of the original Traveller but all I could think of was "who really wrote this crap". Supposedly the author had over 100 writing credits when he did this but there were so many inconsistancies that I frequently lost track. For example, the first officer is described as a nerdy science type who has never been on a starship before. Later the captain can't tell how old she is because she is a spacer. Later still our nerd disarms a soldier with her combat training removes the magazine and gives him the weapon back and then turns around and laughs at the guard when he tries to shoot her in the back and can't because he doesn't notice there is no magazine in HIS weapon and when he does apparently doesn't have a spare.

The worst sin is that this was supposed to explain what happened to the Kinunir but instead added a lot more that wasn't in the original adventure, left out a few things that were and expects a planet full of rioting people to not talk about the ship that caused the riot when anyone else stopped by.

36 Dramatic Situations
Publisher: dicegeeks.com

More for writers then for RPG module creators as it just gives the basic plot or subplots of all novels. If you are a hack and slash creator then this will not be very helpful. If you are going for a more twisted plot it can prove very helpful.

A nice up of the game in a very short space. Only problem was this was one of two covers for an identical product.

The Omen
Publisher: Hyacinth Games
by Philip C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/06/2016 18:51:00

This beginning adventure for Wreck Age is a wonderful mix of various encounters which can be handled in many different ways. Since Wreck Age can be either a table top mini game or an RPG or a combination any adventure can have difficulty finding the balance of the two. The Omen manages to pull it off. It is very sandbox with only a couple of fixed encounters and then many possible encounters which can be taken or left. It also presents several ways to make this one shot adventure into a campaign including the PCs leaving their current faction and jioning one of two others or striking out on their own.

Use this module as your introduction to Wreck Age.

Teachers and Tentacles
Publisher: Second Thought Games
by Philip C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 02/06/2016 08:39:54

A rules lite straight to the point RPG. Very good for those who are more into the story telling then the bashing. With everything needed to play in two pages there is plenty of room for expansion if you want.

Frontier Explorer - Issue 15
Publisher: Frontier Explorer

Always a good magazine with a good mix of articles expanding the rules and setting of the Star Frontiers game but can easily be adapted to any other Sci Fi RPG. A couple of nice fiction stories and continuing comic series round out the offerings.

Blackwood Beginnings
Publisher: Hyacinth Games
by Philip C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/17/2016 19:31:57

While I am a fan of the Wreck Age game I am not a fan of this product. Let's start with the characters provided. Adventure is recommended for 4-6 Green characters. 6 pregenerated characters are provided but one, Domm, is clearly stated to be the Trained Narrator Character and not for the players. So if you have 6 players somebody is rolling up their own. The character's backgrounds are given in the begining except for Janek. Why was Janek left out? Maybe he's the black sheep of the village. All characters are listed as Outriders at 12 RU. By the rules there are no Green Outriders. There is a Trained Outrider at 45 RU so Domm could fit. By the adventure they are going on and rules they should be Jammers (Scouts) which have Green at 12 RU. (Domm should be 25 RU then). There are frequent references to "the map". None is provided. Guessing the Narrator is supposed to carefully read the adventure and make up their own map and then create the player version for them to fill in. Okay for an experienced Gamemaster but a new Narrator might have problems and is not something that should be forced on people getting an introductory adventure. Biggest problem is that this is the introductory adventure to a combined RPG/Skirmish game. There is not one combat encounter in the entire adventure, there is not even a chance to shoot a bunny for dinner unless the Narrator adds it. Spoiler Alert this adventure is a Boy Scout trip into the woods looking for things to get their merit badges.

Did not have any problems printing this product on an HP Laserjet 4250n. Everything was exactly how it was presented which I really like.

I find it useful for quick dungeon needed on the fly when the players go off into places I never thought they would.

BattleTech: Historical: Reunification War

If your a fan of Battletech then this will appeal to you. Some of the material is of course covered in other books but this one gives you a much greater level of detail. The gaming section allows you to create historically accurate battles for any of the different fronts.

If there is a downside to this it is while they list all the different battlemechs and vehicles they do not give the stats for them. In order to play the historically accurate battles you need several source and tech books.

Of Mice Men and Wizards a Free Roleplaying Game
Publisher: Superior Games Books
by Philip C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/15/2011 09:21:53

For a free game you get what you paid for. I think another 3 hours spent on layout would have really helped but maybe you could do that on your own.

Ok first the name on the cover does not match the name on the inside. We are told this is Rat Wars but no background is given. There is one page on character creation and then alot of pages on powers. This gives some headache to actually developing a character. Next there is nothing on outfitting a character till the third book. Being able to cast fireballs but not being able to buy a pair of pants is just not right.

Just a little work on your part and it could be a beer and pretzel game but there are alot more better ones out there.
