Monster Menagerie
Publisher: Rarr! I'm A Monster Publishing
by Jerry T. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/08/2014 11:07:31

I have a very limited understanding of the Monsters! Monsters! game. In essence, it is very similar to Tunnels & Trolls, using the the similar modifiers to the base rolled stats to create a character for the monster's view of the world - kidnapping and eating dirty human villagers, moving into a dungeon and setting up its defenses against those trespassing delvers, or just simply trying to amass a horde of like minded monsters to rampage and pillage.

Monster Menagerie does a wonderful job of presenting some new monster types for use with either game. My first opinion of the work is that I want more! There are some wonderful ideas for new monsters that the creative T&T GM can use and expand for his own use. Many special abilities are mentioned that could be expanded to be included as special attacks as a result of Spite rolls by the monsters to make them a bit more unique. The artwork is very distinct and nice touch to the overall look and feel for the tome.

There is a very expansive and creative list of spells for the mysterious 'Eeek' monster that sadly does not seem to have an illustration (either internally or in the cover image), unless the Eeeks are the glowing eyes in the background of the cover? I believe some of the spells could use a bit more information or examples regarding how they would work in a game, but just my own personal and selfish opinion.

More creative and inspired monster lists are something that I feel are definitely needed to support growth for the T&T game. For those that may be new to T&T, and with the upcoming release of Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls by Flying Buffalo, keep in mind that the basics of the game are quite consistent. This and many works by companies that support the game system are compatible across all rules editions.

This is a very good and promising start to what will hopefully be a series of supplements from this author. Who knows, maybe I need to give Monsters! Monsters! a chance at my table.

House in the Hills
Publisher: Lone Delver Games
by Jerry T. [Verified Purchaser]

Solo adventures tend to be unforgiving. It seems to be a common issue with the many of them to punish the reader/character for doing something as simple as choosing the east hallway over the west hallway. 'House in the Hills' is one of the good ones. It has a simple yet very tight story line and well balanced challenges that match the character level advertised.

If you are new to T&T and creating your character for the first time, you can stop short of buying and choosing your equipment because 'House in the Hills' starts you in the thick of it, left for dead by some bandits with only the clothes on your back and being chased down for dinner by a pack of wolves. Your salvation - a lonely house in the hills that beckons you for the safety it can provide you from your ravenous pursuers.

Once inside you have the opportunity to piece together the events that have transpired previously in the house. With smart choices, a good sword arm, and a wee bit of luck, you will come out of the house way better off than you were going in. That is not to say that a bad roll on a SR could result in the end of your character's adventuring days. Like any adventure, there is always risk and this adventure is a good challenge to try to master.

One additional note: I have used this adventure twice as a GM moderated game for a single player. It works quite well in that regard as well. I also can see adjusting a few things here or there to accommodate a few more players if needed for 2 or 3 players.

Scott Harshbarger Presents: Zombie Art Pack
Publisher: Misfit Studios
by Jerry T. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/13/2013 09:29:40

The definite positive for this art pack is that the scenes are all very usable for a modern zombie project. There are many different scenes including street, morgue, hospital, and others that can be incorporated into what you have planned.

The license also grants permission to crop and color images, which is a definite plus.

Some images do feel more 'finished', but the price per image is definitely in line with other similar art that is available.

Dungeon Doors Set 1 paper 3D scenery
Publisher: Mega Miniatures

Was not expecting much for 50 cents, but was expecting a bit more than what is here. The resolution is very low. I guess I have been used working with another manufacturer's products.
