Bulletproof Blues
by Michael T.
Publisher: Kalos Comics
Date Added: 02/26/2019 08:32:34
Bulletproof Blues BULLETPROOF BLUES REVIEW I think Thomas B.'s review said it better than I could. It's well, though sparsely illustrated, well edited and well written. It's just...boring. There's nothing new here. I think that "a poor-mans' mutants & masterminds" is giving it a little too much credit, but that's about the closest it comes to. With 8 attributes and the mutants & mastermind 'power rank' structure, it's not rules "light" by any means. It's not super-crunchy either however. So "rules-medium". There's no sample adventure, nothing in the way of example NPCs, no weapons, no vehicles, no animals. The world background is trite and derivative (though intentional it would seem). It's much less complete that other superhero offerings, being basically character creation, combat and world background. It basically doesn't have anything that hasn't been done before and there's nothing particularly interesting about the way it's done. I'd say why bother, but it is affordable to check out easily if y...

The Art of Mage the Ascension
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/18/2019 17:39:33
The Art of Mage the Ascension This book is exactly what it says: the art of Mage: the Ascension. Overall, it has a decent selection of pieces (taste varies, of course, I would pick different ones most likely, but the choices were generally good and from a proper variety of Mage artists. The text included was generally ok, nothing particularly special, though there were a few weird layout quirks (extra spacing in words) and the section on the Mage Tarot was a bit of a mess, despite being simple (withthe Traditions and Nephandi established as corresponding to Rods/Questing and Cups/Primordialism, but no such thing for Dynamism/Pattern, despite Pattern particularly being obviously the Technocracy....

Hero 9 to 5 #9: Disposable Heroes
by Katherine P.
Publisher: AAM Markosia
Date Added: 02/13/2019 15:05:23
Hero 9 to 5 #9: Disposable Heroes While it will no doubt be most fully enjoyed by those who've read everything that came before, as the echoes of the Quietus arc are felt, this first issue of Disposable Heroes arc of Hero 9 to 5 is a feasible jumping-on point to new readers: and instantly recognizable to anyone who has ever gone near a certain type of convention. Or certain types of online forums, for that matter. But the recognizability goes beyond the tee-hee of familiarity with a trope of superhero comics or of fandom. Hero 9 to 5 continues to satirize the world beyond the genre, and there is something recognizable in its own way about innocent bystanders being gorily attacked, perhaps fatally, right in front of the world's greatest heroes, in the time it takes to ascertain who will be paid to save the day. The issue includes distinctive character-driven artwork, a consistent color aesthetic, and seamless lettering....

City of Heroes RPG Quickplay Pack
by Lily G.
Publisher: Eden Studios
Date Added: 01/15/2019 13:45:04
City of Heroes RPG Quickplay Pack The full game was never released, even in the years between this coming out and City of Heroes eventually shutting down. So this quickplay pack is all that really remains of this particular tabletop adaption. It's interesting, and tries very hard to replicate aspects of the MMO that maybe it shouldn't. A curiosity more than anything else at this point, if you played City of Heroes and were interested in how it might have gotten adapted to tabletop play, well, it's free. Check it out. Maybe even try running a session. Don't plan on it going beyond one session, though. There's lots of other, much better, and actually complete superhero games you can play....

Girl Genius Volume One (Color Edition) Words cannot express how much I love Girl Genius and I hope this story/comic continues on for many, many years. It's one I've just re-read multiple times and I shouted with joy the day I found out that I could buy a copy of the amazing story that has kept my interest since 2010.

Cthulhu 101

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...!

Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD RPG Core Rulebook

Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD RPG Core Rulebook AMAZING! I purchased OLD, NOW, and NEW as well and they became our go to system, but judge dredd...OMG this was fun! Playing a perps games, and modified an adventure in the book to get their feet wet, and the shear look of terror that came across their face when a lone judge rounded a corner during a heist was pricless, every player mouthed the same word at teh same time (sounds like duck starts with a f) they were studdering to each other, all luck dice spent to bluff, it was amazing. The lore of the world, and the way the system flows, just made for a unforgettable night that we are still talking about moments that happened. It was amazing utterly amazing! Thank you for this game system, if we can a bestiary for the three other WOIN books that would be great. I am marking down 1 star (because I can't give half stars), because the rules to create an NPC are extremely hard to understand, even when using the pre-builts in the books as a base. I would recommend maybe doing something with...

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 A customer
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 A customer
Publisher: Burning Wheel

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 A customer
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...
