Cthulhu 101
by Richard S.
Publisher: Atomic Overmind Press

Cthulhu 101 I was enormously disappointed with this book. I thought there'd be some articles and explanations but there's virtually none of that in this book. The font was difficult and sometimes impossible to read. I had to scan through a lot of blank pages to get to anything. I don't mind the humor. In fact, I wanted some humor but, well, I was left wanting! I expected more because of the reviews. I didn't get what I expected...!

Age of Night (Volume 1: Business Between Brigands) Wonderful publication! I was so engrossed in this that I lost track of time and nearly forgot to review it. The art is amazing, anyone who has seen Amanda's other work for Skirmisher will already know what to expect - I've always loved the illustraions of Paros & co in the Necropolis and other Kos-related productions. The story itself is very engaging, don't want to give anything away but it's a fascinating read with its own mythology that is thoughtfully explained in the appendix. The characters are very likeable and very realistic, there's a good mixture of humour and emotion. However, much as I like the people it's the background and scenary details that I absolutely love. So much thought and care has gone into the world we see, I want to have adventurtes there! Great read, thoroughly recommend it....

Age of Night (Volume 1: Business Between Brigands) I really enjoyed this!. Great intersecting stories, funny, clever, and a neat underlying mythology. I dont think I could run a game as well as this story flows, and every character feels fully fleshed out, but with secrets that hopefully will be revealed in the next volume. Also, I really like the art, deep inking, great line work, the facial expressions and transformations are well developed and clear, adding even more than the dialogue. All and All, a good read, worth getting a print of it too if available...

Christopher Moeller's Iron Empires [BUNDLE]
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Burning Wheel

Christopher Moeller's Iron Empires [BUNDLE] A good bundle to get if you are interested in the Iron Empires setting. I truly liked the first and second comics and the third, if nothing else, adds another piece to the mosaic of the Iron Empires.

Iron Empires: Void
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Burning Wheel
Date Added: 10/30/2018 17:44:33
Iron Empires: Void The review is more about the story than the edition itself because my copy from DrivethroughRPG was of bad quality and the images were not entirely sharp. In general, I love how each volume of Iron Empires shows a different perspective on the world. Yes, we move in all three cases in the higher echelons of the society. However, Void brings into the image the Hammer and its space battles. While the previous two volumes spoke about the war on foot, the faith, the Worm, Void introduces space battles on the verge of the organized empires, it shows again the interesting baroque aristocracy and its spartan war machines and it also shows exactly how the Worm threat is viewed by worlds that are not directly affected by it - basically not at all, which makes it even more threatening. I felt the pace of the book and the lots of internal monologues a little too slowing down. However, it is still a great addition to the puzzle of the Iron Empires world and if you liked the previous two or l...

Iron Empires: Sheva's War
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Burning Wheel
Date Added: 10/30/2018 17:43:13
Iron Empires: Sheva's War A great continuation of the Iron Empires story. It is independent of the previous volume thus one can read them independently. Great art once again and the story was now a little more compelling. I loved the designs of the of the armors and not to mention the idea to use artillery in space. This volume has also a little more of a Dune ring to it thanks to the introduction of psychologists. (My Goodreads review)

Iron Empires: Faith Conquers
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Burning Wheel
Date Added: 10/30/2018 17:41:34
Iron Empires: Faith Conquers I love the art (well drawn and reminds of me a more sober Metabarons version), the details, the world that seems familiar yet alien. The story itself in Faith Conquers is more of an introduction of the threat and of the world of Iron Empires and I think it manages to find the right balance between throwing the reader into the world and explaining it to him. What struck me sometimes as a little off was that while the world sounds detailed and realistic, the main hero is the all mastering super figure that is good at combat, good at stealth missions, hard to surprise etc. I have mixed feelings about the world of Iron Empires. It reminds me too much of Warhammer 40 000, but it lacks the usual Warhammer pathos and is a lot more relatable as it is not such a weird future. The world is really well thought through and seems consistent, has a relentless threat of the Worm and presents great military sci-fi (as opposed to the often action-heroic madness filled W40K stories). However, Iron Em...

Lion's Den These days the only way to get adult focused material is the independent world. This one-shot is full of action, twists and relevance. Great read.

Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD Quickstart
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: EN Publishing

Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD Quickstart This manages to explain an awful lot in just a handful of sentences - even if your exposure to Judge Dredd is minimal you should be able to pick up on the general gist of the setting, as well as understand the rules you'll need to play - or GM - the adventure presented here. As expected, the rules here are a cut-down version of the final rules, but as I haven't seen those yet I cannot say how the play experience differs from the full ruleset. However it does state that special ablities called Exploits are not used here, although a few sample ones are given if you want to give them a go. It appears that to accomplish something you'll need to roll a handful of d6s, the number based on your skill and the relevant attribute. Combat is much the same, and is explained clearly. Four pre-generated characters are provided, all Street Judges. A note explains that the core rulebook provides for playing civilians and perps as well as Judges, should you harbour such ambitions. The adventure is w...

Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD Quickstart I backed the full game on kickstarter. The Quickstart rules are just that, but they are developed enough to give a sense of how the game will work when the full version is released. It looks like a pretty easy syste d6 dice pool, adding and subtracting dice as needed and rolling against a target number. The art is neat and helps captrue the atmosphere of the 2000 AD progs. Plus, the quickstart comes with a starter adventure, and that's not nothing. Do yourself a favor, check it out, and become the LAW!...
