The Art of Conan Sourcebook
by Ben S.
Publisher: Modiphius
Date Added: 06/30/2020 05:58:56
The Art of Conan Sourcebook I'm a huge art book fan, having numerous books on my shelves from various Kickstarters and fantasy artists and as art books go this is definitely a high quality work. Though there's no art included that hasn't already been depicted in the previous Conan sourcebooks from Modiphius, most people won't have all their books so it's nice to have access to all the beautiful images for both use in evoking tone in gameplay and also just to enjoy. I do wish that there was an index of all the artists for the individual images rather than just listing all the artists en masse except for the cover artists. But maybe that's just the art fan in me that likes to track down works from artists I enjoy. After seeing how lovely the art is displayed in this book I'm certainly going to try to track it down in hard copy to own as well....

The Art of Conan Sourcebook 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....

project_share-0 It's also worthy to note: "Legendlore was originally a comic called The Realm, first published by Arrow Comics in 1986 and since procured by Caliber Comics, about four people who fall through a Crossing into the Realm. The Realm is home to fantasy creatures from elves to dragons, and the characters discover they too have ‘fantasy powers’ – the jock becomes a Fighter, while the bookish one becomes a Wizard, and so on. They go on adventures and some of them eventually find their way back to Earth" The Legendlore book itself will be someth...

Tiny Supers
by Mario R.
Publisher: Gallant Knight Games
Date Added: 06/21/2020 10:22:51
Tiny Supers This was the first game we played irl in months. I ran a one shot. Everyone had a fantastic time, the rules are simple, but provide enough guidance that I never ran into a situation where I was stuck. Character creation was the best aspect. Each player gave me a comic character they wanted to emulate powerset, i created 5 characters in 20 minutes. If I had structured the campaign for anything other than a one shot, the experience rules are the most robust of any of the "tiny" rulesets. Great game for those who want a supers game without needing to read 10 pages on how to break a door down....

Ash-Aman Special Edition #1
by Charles M.

Ash-Aman Special Edition #1 Ah, a real gem of a find this one do be! While I am not a fan of the coloring that made its way onto the front cover, I am nonetheless jubilant to embrace what lies beyond. This comic book's interior pages harken unto the Jack Kirby fan in me. This is one of the best indie comic books that I have encountered, to date. The interior pages are black and white, yet they conjure up for me a visual reminder of why I loved the old black and white Savage Sword of Conan and Conan Saga magazines from Marvel. Yet, it is the quasi-Kirby imaginative characters that give this comic book, Ash-Aman, a visual impact all its own. In my considered opinion, this is the best comic book in the entire Blue Moon Comics line. I would, in fact, take the plunge and do a life subscription to this series - except a life subscription option doesn't exist. That's how bad I want - nay, crave - the next issue and subsequent issues in this series in my grasp, right now. Everyone, of course, doesn...

DEADLANDS: Raven #1
by Alex W.
Publisher: Visionary Comics
Date Added: 06/16/2020 14:31:50
DEADLANDS: Raven #1 Ah, *Deadlands*. It's a game I love, but it has Issues up to the ears, and this issue has all the Issues. Racial insensitivity, historical insensitivity, little bit of the sexism that gets a whole lot worse towards the end of the story in further issues (the recurrent theme of women being identical empty vessels for their sexier forebears is...disturbing at this point)...oof. It also basically does for Raven what the *Star Wars* prequels did for Darth Vader, so if you want your badasses badass and a tragic backstory to have the true weight of a man's descent into darkness? Dare I say: "NOoOOOooOOoo." ---- essay incoming ---- The main faults are twofold, spreading cracks throughout: firstly, the story talks about systemic prejudice without understanding its nature, buying into the whole "hatred is bad; hating someone for *killing your mother* is **exactly** as bad as the guy who murdered your mother because he decided he hated her face one day" thing th...

The Degerminators: Volume 1
by Miguel D.
Publisher: Free Comics
Date Added: 05/27/2020 21:49:22
The Degerminators: Volume 1 Mild Spoilers Ahead: This is a great fun read and it has an almost videogame concept to it. I had a blast throughout the book getting to know the characters and what makes them tick. The character bios help with this to give an idea of the personalities and direction of the story. What is strong in this story is humor and buildup to the confrontation of the villain. The characters is what drives the story forward in an entertaining way. There's some comical moments like when Tara takes some of her school clothes off and pose to the guys, you can hear the saxophone playing in your head. Finally, the story has a positive message which is inspired by the coronavirus pandemic we are all going through. To stay clean, healthy, and socially distanced. Jailon does a great job at building tension and there's a sweet cliffhanger at the end that will leave you begging for more. There is nice character development, for example, Walter starts off scared and reluctant to fight the germs...

Ninja High School Textbook Volume 4 Many of the lesser side characters get their own stories, like Ichi's little sister. And alot about the daughter of the enemy ambassador, who is a midget cross dressing male.

Ninja High School Textbook Volume 3 Most of it was very good, (the combat cheerleaders are back), but the longest worst drawn story arc was nearly unfollowable, as it dragged on far too long with too many fights.

Tiny Supers I collect superhero games, fully knowing I'm never going to play most of them. This one, on the other hand? Pretty sure it's going to be my go-to going forward! Easy to learn, easy to teach, super quick chargen. What's not to like?!

Idol Pursuits - A Mutants & Masterminds Novella
by Jim M.
Publisher: Green Ronin Publishing

Idol Pursuits - A Mutants & Masterminds Novella A great read left me wanting more of the story and the way it is written makes that seem likely. I look forward to the next chapters. The characters are very well developed and the story absorbing so you want to turn the page to find out what happens next. It would make a great screenplay too. Initially I was a bit hesitant to buy something from an author of the same last name as mine but was not disapointed in the least. Well worth your time.

Sentry Force Prime: Issue #0
by Mari M.
Publisher: Gallant Knight Games
Date Added: 04/29/2020 11:05:50
Sentry Force Prime: Issue #0 I’ve been a fan of Alan Bahr for a few years now. He’s an excellent writer with an attention to detail that makes all his projects phenomenal. Sentry Force Prime is his first foray into comics, and he does the new medium justice! Sentry Force Prime #0 is an action-packed springboard into Sentry City’s superhero force. Taking cues from famous superhero teams like the Avengers or the X-Men, it has an exciting cast of diverse characters that we feel like we know within only a few frames. Thanks to Bahr’s effectual storytelling and Nicolas Giacondino’s amazing illustration, we get to see these heroes work together to kick a ton of ass, covering lots of ground in just one issue. And as a gamer, I found an RPG one-shot adventure tucked inside pretty awesome. I’m excited to see the series delve into the characters further, and I hope series gets the issues to craft an amazing story. Overall, dynamite issue 0. ...

Adventure! Rulebook
by Jason C. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 04/27/2020 14:27:16
Adventure! Rulebook As the Trinityverse series chugs through its second editions on Kickstarter, it's worth taking a moment to look back at some of the material that made this trilogy beloved in its White Wolf days (the Trinityverse is now owned by Onyx Path). Adventure! was the third game in the series, the only standalone book, and is among the most beloved by Trinityverse fans. Aberranmt had its (surprisingly prescient) near-future vision of microcelebrity superheroes struggling not to be consumed by their own powers, and Trinity took a stab at a combination of 1970s psi-fi and optimistic tean sf. For the series to take a plunge into period pulp action... well why not? Adventure!'s system is a stripped down version of the Trinity-verse era version of the White Wolf house system; die pools rolled trying to beat target numbers. It's serviceable, and supplemented by, as always, the top tier supernatural powers written by the White Wolf team. It depicts an alternate 1920s-30s in which ...
