Coddlesworth's Clockwork Circus, Issue One This comic isabsolutely amazing! The illustrations are so well done, be sure to look closely as there is so much going on in the background. The story telling is awesome, I can't wait for issue 2 to be released.

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

Deckbox (large)

Deckbox (large) I love these boxes. They fit the cards perfectly, and it is such a great way to keep your cars stored without rubber bands. And they are protected in the box, too.

Mouse Guard RPG 2nd Edition
by Tyler L.
Publisher: Archaia Entertainment LLC
Date Added: 07/13/2022 13:19:06
Mouse Guard RPG 2nd Edition I find I need to spearate my opinion of the game itself and this PDF version. I love the game. The game itself is fantastic. But this PDF is sub par. The scanned elements are extremely low resolution. Any text in a scanned element is unreaable. There are no bookmarks in the table of contents or index. Many features are locked out in the PDF. I bought this to supliment my hard copy, and it's fine for that, just hard to use.

Legendlore Core Rulebook
by Dan D.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 07/05/2022 17:21:57
Legendlore Core Rulebook This Legendlore Core Rulebook exceeded my expectations. I bought it because, as a teenager 35 years ago, I had really loved the obscure black & white, 1987 comic book on which this game is based, called "The Realm." It was about a handful of modern American college freshmen who are magically transported to a D&D-like fantasy world. Its influences were obvious, even then: the 1980s D&D cartoon primarily, along with some Tolkien, Star Wars, and zombie films. I was thrilled and shocked that this game gave this obscure IP new life in 2022 for a modern audience! Thank you! After I read this rulebook (I bought the hardcover), I re-read the original comics before writing this review. I would say that the following sentence, quoted from the Introduction on page 11, perfectly summarizes this work. "The Legendlore role-playing game presents a diverse and includive world based on the Legendlore comics." It's a perfect summary because: (1) I was genuinely am...

EXE
by Garth G.
Publisher: Blackheart Sequential
Date Added: 06/25/2022 09:20:11
EXE Hands down, EXE has got to be one of the top ten coolest indie graphic novels that I have read in the last five years. The sexy artwork has a unique half-manga/half-western style to it all of its own … and its use of tricked-out ‘3D' and anime-level ‘VFX,’ literally dripping off of each page’s panels, is definitely its secret sauce. EXE reads lightning fast like a movie ... very cinematic … the story is brisk, slick, whip-smart, dark fun … wickedly scary, and, at times, even painfully funny … full of thrilling twists and chilling turns (with even a little romance) ... and certainly on par with the plot of the latest BOND or MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE. Plus, some of the goriest, ass-kicking action … super-satisfying creative tortures/kills towards this universe’s most-deserving … from a hi-tech hit-man who specializes in hunting down child molesters. EXE defies expectations right off the bat … and then goes even more batshit after that. You’ll scream, you’ll laugh, you’ll cheer. E...

KOBOLD Guide to Worldbuilding

KOBOLD Guide to Worldbuilding This review is a summarised version. For the full version, head over to [Swords & Stationery](https://swordsandstationery.com/review/kobold-gu-
ide-to-worldbuilding-review/). When it comes to creating new things, ideas are a dime a dozen. Everyone has an opinion. Yet, it is easier said than done to create something that's logically coherent. Furthermore, the well of ideas tends to run dry too after a while. This is where the KOBOLD Guide to Worldbuilding comes in. While not exactly "meaty", it has plenty of advice covering a wide range of topics. Each topic takes up about 5 pages of information, but it's concise and to the point. If I had to nitpick though, it's that not all the topics are equally well-written, but that's to be expected from having so many contributors. Art in the book is also a little sparse. It would have benefited from having more accompanying visuals....

Champions: The Super Roleplaying Game
by Rory H.
Publisher: Hero Games
Date Added: 05/27/2022 06:20:13
Champions: The Super Roleplaying Game A comprehensive overview of a classic superhero role-playing game. Well edited, full colour layout (in the PDF) and confidently written with real authority. You will not find a more encycopedic book about the hostory of the genre or running games of this type. The provision of customisable archetypes is welcome, as it provides a quick way to get into the game which is appreciable given the compexity of the standard character generation process. You do need a core rule book to play it, however, whether it is Champions Complete or the Hero System volumes. It is a pity the developers didn't simply expand the book to make it complete the first time round. ...

BASH! Basic Action Super Heroes (Original Edition)
by Bob V. G.
Publisher: Basic Action Games
Date Added: 05/03/2022 15:13:30
BASH! Basic Action Super Heroes (Original Edition) For the last few days, I have soloed my way through All Hallow’s Eve from BAM! Basic Action Magazine #1 (25 pages, free at DriveThruRPG). The system that I used to play it was Bash! Basic Action Super Heroes (Original Edition). I used SoloCutz (same place) as the solo engine. I did use the six characters that are included in the RPG rules. So, the first scene was investigation (crime scene). The second scene was combat. Things really got interesting with the third scene. The P.C.s were up against a litch-lord. My White Witch cast a magical duel arena spell. The litch cast wizard tower. The end result – both teams ended up in the White Mausoleum. The White Witch was still with Baby Face, but all of the other characters were on their own. This could have ended badly if they ran into the lich too soon. They did have a chance to explore 21 rooms full of challenges, tests, and a combat. They did find the lich’s weakness (a coin from a sorority house). They used it to incapacitate the l...

These Savage Shores Volume 1

Publisher: Vault Comics
Date Added: 04/06/2022 15:06:02
These Savage Shores Volume 1 A great story told in impressive pictures. The end of the first part surprised me, but came together very well. The historical setting and the political situation were inspiring. I only wish there was a continuation of the story of Kori and Bishan. I can highly recommend this comic.

Ascendant

Publisher: Autarch
Date Added: 03/27/2022 19:02:57
Ascendant I'm sure this is a comprehensive RPG system, but I've found it very hard to read and get my head around. For me, it's like reading software code. The text could use some serious editing, and it's enough for me to wonder how this title got the 5 star rating it had when I bought it. I won't be introducing it to my gaming group. I felt from the drawings of scantily clad women in the book, it wasn't aiming for a mixed audience. I much prefer the recently published Absolute Power, or Mutants and Masterminds. I would suggest people look elsewhere for a superhero RPG. ...

Deadlands: The Cackler
by Daxton N.
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
Date Added: 03/17/2022 11:15:08
Deadlands: The Cackler Spoiler free review: Deadlands has gone through a lot of changes sinced I first found out about it in 1998. Learning a new game after being weaned on AD&D was intimidating, but the lore was what kept me coming back. Especially knowing that Deadlands: The Weird West was a growing, changing and *living* campaign. And "The Cackler" may be the most exciting that I have read. Alternate histories are a difficult genre, taking known characters and events of American legend and making them fictional but feeling familiar. At some point, the writers could be expected to "dry up" their well of knowledge because, eventually, how much of a threat can the Reckoners and their Servitors be if players can vanquish them in their published adventures? The Cackler does this by introducing new threats that feel fresh and original and still familiar! A Living Worlds means that moving forward sees heroes perish. I loved The Cackler as a new villain I recognize, and I am anxious t...
