Atom Jacket Issue 1
Publisher: The Atom Jacket Anthology
by Matthew R B. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/30/2022 18:47:22

This is a seemingly entirely random collection of short comics, mostly on the dark side. I know nothing about the artists or the publication of this, but I'd call this the work of very talented amateurs. I enjoyed all the stories and strips. Since it's free, I'd say it's definitely worth getting and reading. It's fun.

Untold Subclasses - Empowering Cult
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Matthew R B. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/30/2022 17:28:57

This pdf includes a new Warlock patron, the Empowering Cult. It also includes a new boon, Pact of the Chalice, 4 new invocations for that pact, 3 new spells, and a sample character. The new patron is a nice twist on the concept of the warlock -- you have a cult (of at least 1 person, but it can go into the thousands) that empowers you from their belief. The tradeoff for the power you get is that your believers want you to fulfil their wishes, so I cult that starts wrapped around your finger can get out of your control as you get more powerful. So it's different than the usual warlock patron, but it can provide some very interesting stories if your interests and the interests of your cult start to diverge.

The Pact of the Chalice is an interesting variant, but I wouldn't be able to resist turning my warlock into Lil John and screaming "yeah!" all the time as I flung the contents of my Chalice on someone to cast Eldritch Blast.

The three spells include Arcane Convention, which allows multiple casters to cast a spell together which a much longer casting time than usual; Arcane Gift that lends a spell or mystic arcanum to another creature; and Arcane Pact, which give another creature a level of warlock. So, we have a cult casting a spell together, like in any good cult story and two spells based around the idea of a high-level warlock becoming a patron of other warlocks themselves. I haven't run any of these spells in a game, but they don't have any obvious game breaking effects.

Is this book worth getting? If you like running or playing warlocks, I'd say it's a solid yes. Cults make for excellent evil opposition for PCs, but the idea of having a good warlock with a cult is intriguing and this supplement would help you pull it off. If you GM sword & sorcery stories, get this. If you play warlocks, I'd also recommend this for variety.

The hunt and the unmasking
Publisher: Hex Vestige
by Matt B. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/25/2012 23:54:52

I hate to give this low a rating on a free product, but the fact is that this game doesn't seem to qualify for even rules light status. It's like the half-completed outline of a rules light game that was never finished. No part of it seems complete enough to actually use, except perhaps the combat system. This product would require quite a bit of work to be usable so I simply can't recommend The hunt and the unmasking.
