Sentinel Comics: The Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook

Sentinel Comics: The Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook Full disclosure: I am a total fan boy for all things Sentinels, from the original card game to the video game on iOS and Steam. That being said, as a professional storyteller and someone who has ADHD and struggles digesting rules of new RPG',. this one has been a total thrill to read. It's easy to absorb and understand. The book itself is playfully written, the information design is clean and its continuity through example play and explination is top notch. The rules themselves are refreshing, innovative and in true true spirit of the original game that brought us the world of Sentinels of the Multiverse. Highly recommended....

The Making of the Art of Children of the Revolution

The Making of the Art of Children of the Revolution # **Just a making of - a Mephisto review** **The Making of the Art of Children of the Revolution.** Even though the term art appears in the title, this volume is not a typical artbook, but focuses on the "making of" aspect. As such, the book is comparatively text-heavy. In addition to the sketches and stages of development to the finished results of some of the illustrations, sorted by illustrator, one finds the email conversations in the exchange between art director and illustrator. In this respect, the book could not really appeal to me. While the sketches' development is interesting, the book focuses more on the intermediate stages than the final results. While it's interesting to get a glimpse into the discussion about the motifs, the collection of emails - in the typical colloquial form (including various typos) - may be authentic, but it couldn't captivate me. I was more convinced by the approach of other artbooks to the ***World of Darkness*** - pers...

W20 Art of Werewolf the Apocalypse

Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing

W20 Art of Werewolf the Apocalypse # **Glimpses of the Werewolf's Apocalypse - a Mephisto review** **The Art of Werewolf the Apocalypse** Part of the product line of anniversary editions to the ***World of Darkness*** are several artbooks. Subtitled *A Visual Guide to Werewolf 20th Anniversary Edition*, this book gives an impression of the world of werewolves. Divided into six chapters, the book introduces key aspects of the Garou world: transformation, their role as defenders of Gaia, the three central powers of Wyrm, Weaver and Wyld, and the Umbra. In this book, the images are the main focus; the texts are only short explanations of the subject and the mentioning of the illustrator. Unlike other artbooks, this one is not about the process of creating the illustrations but primarily about the graphic representation of the Garou's world in selected illustrations. As expected, a wide range of styles can be found here, but what all the images have in common is that they depict the werewolves' struggle aga...

W20 Art of Changing Breeds: A Visual Guide to the Fera

W20 Art of Changing Breeds: A Visual Guide to the Fera # **The art of Fera - a Mephisto review** **The Art of Changing Breeds - A visual Guide to Fera** Several art books have been published for the ***World of Darkness*** roleplaying games' anniversary editions, each with a slightly different focus and approach. For the graphic companion book to Changing Breeds, the subtitle sums up the approach well: *A visual guide to the Fera* (the other shapeshifters beyond werewolves). After the introduction, the book works its way along the various Fera types, and the author, Mike Chaney, provides some insights on the choice of illustrators. In doing so, he also juxtaposes the briefing information the artists received with the results, comments on the artists' selections, provides little anecdotes and offers insights into the approach to the various Fera. Through this and some illustrations from older books, the reader also learns how the presentation has changed over the 20 years leading up to the anniversary edition. At the heart of th...

Sentinel Comics: The Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook

Publisher: Greater Than Games, LLC

Sentinel Comics: The Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook I'd been playing Sentinels of the Multiverse, the card game set in the same universe as this RPG, for a number of years before I heard about this game being kickstarted, and as a fan of the universe and superhero RPGs in particular, I decided to back it to see what innovations it would bring to my table. I'm always initially wary of new superhero RPGs, having been burned by systems that promised more than they could deliver in the past, but I had faith that the same attention to detail and tight design that went into SotM would be repeated here. I am happy to report that my faith has been rewarded, and then some. As a lifelong GM (not my choice, believe me, I'd love to play!), I've been looking for a system that walks that fine line between narrative freedom and systemic crunch, capable of satisfying the roleplayers and the gamers at the session. Sentinel Comics is that game. Let's start with the visuals; from the moment you open the book and see the beautifu...

Tales Of Honor: On Basilisk Station Volume 1
by Damien H.
Publisher: Top Cow
Date Added: 03/01/2021 20:19:39
Tales Of Honor: On Basilisk Station Volume 1 The writer, Matt Hawkins, has a solid record for writing strong female protagonist, but, Harrington might be the most relatable. It’s nice to see a strong female lead deal with confidence (or lack thereof) in her appearance and work. She is a believable woman with real doubts and flaws, but by her actions and narration gives the reader a strong and empowering character to bond with. Tales of Honor is a beautiful comic book. The art by Jun-Geun Yoon, San-II Jeong, and Linda Sejic add so much depth and wonder that you often forget that this is a military-sci-fi-thriller but more of a space opera fantasy. Each page is filled with extreme visual details, creative ships, and mindblowing action....

Tales of Honor #1 Free issues, starting at #0 or #1 are an excellent way to get a taste of the story, characters and the style of the comic book's authors. Tales of Honor completely knocked the ball out of the park for me. I purchased the Tales Of Honor: On Basilisk Station Volume 1 after reading this comic. An awesome little comic, with a well crafted storyline and a nice art style.

The Wizard of O2 I bought this for my kids and they said they loved it. I ended up having a read and enjoyed it too. So I think the story works well for all age groups. The Wizard of Oz references are quite clever and the artwork is excellent too, really adorable. We hope the creators do another one.

Knights of the Golden Sun #2 Knights of the Golden Sun presents a compelling storyline set around 400 B.C. where God has abandoned his throne and left his archangels to endure and watch over humanity. The storyline has a decent amount of drama, action and development in both story and characters with utterly beautiful artwork. Utterly loved it, looking forward to reading #3.

Knights of the Golden Sun #1 Knights of the Golden Sun presents an interesting storyline set around 400 B.C. where 'God' has abandoned his throne and left the archangels to watch over humanity. The storyline has a decent amount of drama, action and development in story and characters which has lead me into picking up #2. The artwork is also uttery beautiful.

The Art of Conan Sourcebook The Art of Conan Sourcebook is absolutely incredible. I don't play the role playing game, but I have an appreciation of Conan. This book gathers together all of the art work form their RPG and supplements and places it in one book full of just art with a few paragraphs of descritptions here and there to set the scene. Overall, an incredible book.
