* The biggest problem the book has is that it's shackled to Army of Darkness. It strains to convince you that playing the Blacksmith would really be fun. Well, the bench just isn't as deep in this setting as it is in Buffy or Angel. The true highlights are the other time periods, the archetypes (and what they mean for a potential game),
* The Mass Combat rules may not sound like much, but I have used the Savage Worlds version of them quite a bit, and adapted the Army of Darkness rules into D&D5e to good effect. The core conceit behind these rules are my favorite mass combat rules of all time, and my players actually get excited when they realize I'm wheeling them out. I actually like these rules better than the Savage Worlds version because the Savage Worlds rules have a Knowledge (Battle) prerequisite that almost none of my players ever take, while the AoD rules are based on Intelligence and Influence.
* The production values on licensed Eden Studios books were always on ...
Watch out D.C! You too Stan Lee! This comic is AWESOME! Really enjoyed a refreshing approach to a classic tale with bells on! Ring a ding ding yo! Impressive graphics and intriging narrative. Looking forward to the next instalment. A*
Folks? I just bit the bullet and plunked down my $2. The verdict? It's nearly all top-down views of the ships, with nothing dramatic or vaguely interesting, art-wise. It's terribly boring, uninspired, and barely worthy of being called a coloring book. Honestly? this is one of only two products I've gotten via Drivethru that I honestly wish I could get my money back for. ADB should feel both embarrassed and ashamed that they're charging money for this. Don't waste your $2 like I did- there's better stuff out there on the internet for free....
This is a fairly simple and straight forward product. It will not win any awards as a coloring book, but it fits the style of ADB ship design well. I appreciate that just the ships are presented instead of being in action poses like a more traditional coloring book. The price point is excellent as well.
This is a good set-up issue, and the fact that it's based on a real-life person makes it compelling. I found it to be a worthwhile starting point of what is to be a larger story.
The dialogue suggests Polish and Russian dialects without being stereo-typical. It reads naturally, and you are aware that you are in a foreign land without being distracted. The story does a good job establishing characters and their complex connection to the Soviet Union and how they came to be part of the "people's army."
The art has clean line-work with some excellent panels. Newly published artists often struggle with movement in their art, and you can see how Lovalle Davis will continue to develop and improve through future issues of White Lilly. The art looks good and works well.
Fans of Athena Voltaire will enjoy this book....
This is my favorite super hero game. You can save the universe or protect your neaborhood with equal ease. The game played easy and with distinctly diffrent characters. Everybody always enjoys when we play this game.
If you've ever read the *Colonial Marine Technical Manual* you'll have a pretty good idea what to expect from this book. Although *Bug Hunts: Surviving and Combating the Alien Menace* clearly has a more general focus. Its 81 pages the first 45 of which are devoted to indepth studies of three bug species, a xeno-parasite, an arachnid type and a crab-like species, followed by a briefer look at six other species. The next 4 pages provide a timeline of the more infamous infestations. The last 30 pages are devoted to an in depth look at the forces and organisations whose task it is to deal with bug infestations, their organisation, equipment and some of the more well known personnel.
The book provides setting or backrground material only, there are no rules of any sort in this book. As a resource it is very useful and adaptable to pretty much any rules system you could think of. I'm a wargamer and roleplayer with a distinct preference for Sci-fi and I love it. The aliens are similar to,...
An interesting group of characters in a super team that's still forming. Their powers and personalities are compelling and reading the first issue made me interested in getting more of them. Definitelty worth checking out.
Socute visits the dog park in this one. I really liked the artwork, particularly the depiction of Fiona. Be sure not to skip the newspaper article on the last page. It explains Fiona's whole back story.
I don't hold anything against White Wolf, but the fact that Udon teased us with their amazing art, and then let the story drop in the worst way only punctuates their inability to commit to this amazing property. Everyone lost when they dropped this line.

Though I never was able to get my hands on the original Exalted special hardback, this art book was always a very fascinating look into the genesis of the original Exalted setting and system. There is a lot of insight, some rough and early sketch art that eventually inspired a lot of the thematic feel of Exalted, and of course commentary that helps explain it all. If you want to understand the history of Exalted as a developed role playing game, you must buy this book. For this price, you'd be crazy not to....
