The Art of Conan Sourcebook
Publisher: Modiphius
by kristine y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/27/2020 17:19:38

The Art of Conan Sourcebook is about 120 pages of artwork covering the entire Conan line as of now. I like how at the front of the book is a world map of Conan, so its an easy reference source for your group to use. The artwork is great. If you have any of the books then you already have some of this artwork. To the best of my knowledge the artwork is only from the rpg books and nothing new is added. The book covers the various artists who created the artwork. If you enjoyed the art from the books ad want to see just the art then this book is for you. If you are a gm who likes to show the world and not have to flip through several books, then this book will be helpful as those pictures are all one book.

Its amazing how much was included in this 120 page book. Included is a map for the Thurian age. A background for the various peoples of the age. A history of the age and brief description of the major and minor kingdoms. I found the inforamtion useful for plot ideas to use in an age of Conan campaign. The included adventure has ideas that you could use for your own campaign to have some intersting encounters in an age of Conan era. I liked that Thulsa Doom was included as he is one of the most iconic charcters that a lot of fans know of. The book gives you plenty of ideas and information on how to run a campaign in this time. Overall this book has alot to offer, whether you want to play in another era, or add depth and history to your existing campaign.

Date Added: 05/01/2020 09:35:31

This book expands on possible pc creation covering playing a person cast out by your civilization. Included are weapon and equipment charts to help flesh out your hero. The book also contains information on different geographical parts of the world and how they would effect your charcter. The magic section includes avatars from different gods and how to use them. The book also includes a section on settlements, how to build and expand them. The book also has a section on waging war and has tips and rules on how to play out a battle. A small section on new beasts is also included.

I liked the book for several reasons. First the concept of being exiled from your homeland is a concept on developed much in other systems so its nice to see. Second, the informastion on the different lands and how the enviorment plays a role adds some ideas players and gms might not think to consider. Third, the settelemnt section is great for ideas and rules on how to create and upgrade a location in a thoughtout way. Finally the section on waging a war gives some good tips and rules for including a battle in your game.

This is a handy short adventure to have if you lack prep time. You could easily do this adventure in a single game session. This adventure can easily be played with one or two pcs or a larger group. If you are a fan of sir arthur conan doyles works or like the hounds of the baskervilles then you will like the tie ins this adventure has. A good short adventure or even a side trek with a little work.

Black Void: Dark dealings in the Shaded Souq
Publisher: Modiphius
by kristine y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/18/2020 13:27:54

If you like games with a dark tone set in a arabian theme world then this is for you. The adventure takes place in a single city. This city could easily be used in any other fantasy game. The city map is clear and easy to use and includes several useful locations. The book gives you enough information to use the city beyond the adventure. The artwork stands out from a lot of typical fantasy games.
The adventure is a standard the pcs are falsely accussed of committing a crime and must clear their names. What makes this adventure stand out is the city and and how the arabian setting makes it feel so different from most other fantasy games. It would be worth buying this just for the artwork and the city.

Star Trek Adventures: Delta Quadrant Sourcebook
Publisher: Modiphius
by kristine y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/30/2020 15:04:09
This book follows the same format as the other quadrant books in this line. This book focus solely on the Delat quadrant which is also the quadrant the tv show star trek voyager was based in. If you watched the show then the inforamtion in the book wil be familar to you. At the same time even someone who knows the show well will still learn some interesting things. The book starts off with several maps showing the route voyager took getting home. The various diagrams throughout the book are excellent. I liked the one for the the borg cube and voyager. The major factions and races from the show are included giving you enough information to play them and use them. The ship section was well detailed covering the delta flyer, kayzon, hirogen and other major species from the show. A good portion of the book covers the borg. Everything you eve wanted to know about the borg is in here. Various intell reports from the Alpha and Beta Quadrant species are included. A very detailed look at Borg space and how they operate. even a section on running a campaign through Borg space. Like the other quadrant books, the section on how to run a game in the quadrant is helpful especially if you are not familiar with the tv show. Suggetions on running an exploration focused campaign and delta quadrant focues campaign ideas are included. Enough is included to run various campaigns from a Borg focused one to a hirogen hunters or the kayzon. You could easily run a game just using the delta quadrant species and nothing else. This is well worth $15.

Dishonored: The Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook
Publisher: Modiphius
by kristine y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/30/2020 14:44:49
I have never played the video game this is based on. With that said, this is a very interesting gaslamp style game. The game is set in victorian era with a european influence. The book has a large section devoted to the game world, going over in good detail each sub-section of the game world. The maps are very helpful and the artwork is an excellent combination of the historical age and gaslamp/steampunk feel. If you are familiar with the historical era combined with the inforamtion in the book then you should have an excellent feel for the game and how to play or run a campaign. Having played their star trek and john carter games, I like some of the different game mechanics used in Dishonored. Some of the new game mechanics are truths that you pick and how they influence the world. Others are the viod points and chaos pool. These all play a part in how your actions affect the game world and how they affect your PC. I like the Bonecharms and how they work with the void points. The key themes are will explained and how you can use them as both a Gm and a player. The NPC section is very detailed and covers everything from archtypes, to common npc like various street gangs common to the era. The equipment section was lacking I thought. I was surprised the listed was pistols and rifles but not a shotgun. Overall this is an excellent game set in a victorian era setting with a few twists.

John Carter of Mars Core Rulebook
Publisher: Modiphius
by A customer [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/14/2019 17:25:48
In the past I have bought and played in the Conan RPG and the Star Trek RPG from Modiphius so I was already familiar with 2D20 game engine used in this game. First the artwork in this book is excellent and brings the setting to life The color map of Barsoom is stunning and helpful in playing the game. The player charcter sheets look more like art than a charcter sheet. The player sheet is easy to fill out and use The artwork is also helpful in showing players what the peoples and creatures of Barsoom look like as some people are not familiar these books. The oragization of the book is logical and very helpful in creating a player charcter. I like the fact how Modiphius has contiued to adapt the 2D20 engine to fit each of the games individually. The gamemaster section is very helpful. If you have never read the John Carter of Mars books this will help you a great deal. One strength of Modiphius corebooks, including this one, is the amount of explanations and rules examples they give you. The book also covers the three eras of the book series well enabling a group to play a long campaign while staying true to the books if you like. Information on the other planets and moons of our star system is given and how you can use those locations in your campaign. Suggestions from other books, movies, etc are given to aid in creating your own adventures. They also include write ups for the major charcters from the books and tips on how to use or play them from each era. Using a landscape format for the book is an interesting choice. The artwork is further enhanced by this choice. However when I tried to read it as a PDF it was a bit difficult to do so. Being in a landscape format makes printing any page for use difficult to use in a standard game master screen.

Modiphius has done an excellent job of adapting the John Carter of Mars and well worth the price. panny@modiphius.com
