Anime Action: Diceless Anime-Style Roleplaying
by Katelyn S.
Publisher: Three Sages Games
Date Added: 06/26/2017 19:00:34
Anime Action: Diceless Anime-Style Roleplaying *Anime Action!* is a rules-light system that focuses on the narrative as the GM and players create their own anime series, episode by episode. The mechanics leave it wide open for a variety of genres, from swords & sorcery, to space operas, to rom-coms. While the book gives you ideas and a basic structure for character creation, the exact way your stats, traits, and specials interact with the story is extremely malleable. You largely make up your own trait's fluff and application, but the bonus it gives it static. For instance, my character had "You Gotta Have Faith +2" as a Trait. As long as I could justify it within a story ("I have faith that my goddess will help me aim when I chuck this apple at that bandit's head!"), it could be done. This could have issues with players/GMs who are adversarial, but anyone interested in telling a cooperative story with anime flavor will love this system. I own the paperback copy. Glossy cover, perfect bound, matte pages....

Cold & Dark
by Todd S.
Publisher: Modiphius
Date Added: 06/26/2017 18:50:33
Cold & Dark In terms of setting, I can't think of a better sci-fi game. I'm not a fan of the core mechanic (build a dice pool and count successes), however after some playtesting I find it isn't quite as streaky as I've experienced in some other games. Overall, the rules mesh well with the setting and theme of the game. I really can't stress enough how well-thought out the setting is and I really appreciate that it leaves out the all too familiar (these days) tropes of transhumanism and super-intelligent AI. The monsters are quite a bit more monstrous than what you normally find in a sci-fi setting, but that's where the horror aspect comes in I suppose....

ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG (FULL VERSION)

ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG (FULL VERSION) As a big fan of WFRP's first and second editions, I love Zweihander. It's a fantastic stand-in for both of those editions while also adding enough unique touches of its own to make it stand tall on its own merits. The morality system, various customization options, the social intrigue rules, madness and corruption and many more things make Zweihander a worthy successor to WFRP. I also enjoy that the way they designed the rules makes it easy to "move" the game system from setting to setting without too much work. Even in settings that are pretty different from the "old world" European flavor of Zweihander, it wouldn't be too hard to extrapolate the system out. For instance, my gaming group has always been a big fan of the old Dark Sun setting and I could see how Zweihander, with a bit of tweaking, could be used in that setting. I will say that the sheer size of the book does make finding a particular rule a bit tricky sometimes, but it's not too bad, especially after you get fam...

Stars Without Number: Core Edition
by Aaron H.
Publisher: Sine Nomine Publishing
Date Added: 06/26/2017 17:05:13
Stars Without Number: Core Edition I love this system! Yes, there is a new version in progress, but this one is definitely worth it in the meantime. The system is highly customizable. Character creation in the core book is very simple. The game itself moves pretty fast and leaves plenty of room for improvisation on the fly, including a bunch of tables in the back of the book for randomly rolling NPCs, names, corporations, religions, etc.

Predation
by David P.
Publisher: Monte Cook Games
Date Added: 06/26/2017 16:11:52
Predation Predation is a great setting, with a very interesting background story, so even in case someone not too keen on Cypher System, as me, it is worth to get the book. But what the setting book offers? Predation is a kind of mix of various genres, ranging from post-apocalypse, hard sci-fi, to survival games, dino-riders. The basis of the setting is simple enough, time travellers sent back from our future for some reason into the late Cretaceous period. But then the twist comes from here from other similar concepts, the actual players are third or fourth generation survivors of the original time travellers, and because the time travelling stopped working, they only know the future from tales and legends. The are more natives to the Cretaceous period than to the future Earth. Some of the knowledge and technology lost through the time, but other survived, some became source of ideologies or religious-like movements. But one thing in certain, the doomsday is close by as everyone knows t...

Death of the Tyrant

Publisher: GRAmel
Date Added: 06/26/2017 13:12:07
Death of the Tyrant One of the best adventures I have ever ran. Each segment plays well by itself and is unique, and the whole story just works. At all points my players were motivated.

INDEX CARD RPG Core Set

INDEX CARD RPG Core Set Having bought A LOT of systems off Drive Thru, I am way impressed by how fast I was able to read, and then use, this game system. You won't struggle figuring out confusing rules or doing complex math. You gain the benefit of a supported system by a talented creator who is pumping out additional content. While being both a fantasy and a sci-fi system, I personally love the sci-fi elements because sci-fi is almost ALWAYS brutal to play as a world system and this is just smooth -- like good Brandy smooth!...

ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG (FULL VERSION)

Publisher: Grim & Perilous Studios
Date Added: 06/26/2017 12:39:24
ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG (FULL VERSION) As a fan-made improvement of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition, Zweihänder blows its predecessor out of the water with customization options, setting agnosticism and smart new game mechanics such as peril to represent the physical and mental exhaustion of your characters. While the game's presentation could use a little work, the book being over 600 pages making it difficult to find the rule you need when you really need it, the game itself is amazing, offering a lot more freedom to players and GMs. Grab this while you wait for WFRP 4th Edition. You won't regret it....

Dynastic Races Compendium

Dynastic Races Compendium An Endzeitgeist.com review This MASSIVE sourcebook clocks in at 165 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 2 pages of editorial/ToC, 4 pages of SRD, 3 pages of advertisement, 1.5 pages of KS-backer-thanks, leaving us with 152.5 pages of content, so let's take a look! This review was moved up in my review-queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. So, what is this? Well, first of all, this would be a massive sourcebook that takes 4 races of the PFRPG-game and provides the details we always craved; two of these have been covered before - namely the Kitsune and Samsarans, in their respective compendiums - if I am not mistaken, roughly 90% of the content from these books should be available herein as well. However, this is more than a partial rehash of previous material: Instead, we gain massively expanded content. Beyond the previously noted two races, this pdf also takes a look at the nagaji and wayang, two races, which, much like the sams...

Castle Falkenstein: The Second Tarot Variation

Castle Falkenstein: The Second Tarot Variation An Endzeitgeist.com review The second of Tarot-based alternate rules-pdfs for Castle Falkenstein clocks in at 6 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, leaving us with 4 pages of content, so let's take a look! Wait, first, before we do: If you have not yet picked up the first Tarot Variation, please do so NOW. It has made my Top Ten RPG-product list for a reason - it is brilliant. The genius idea here is to use the Rider-Waite-Smythe tarot deck instead of the regular playing cards deck - the result has not only been an increase in atmosphere, but also a more interesting gameplay. I literally never want to play vanilla CF again. ... Okay, that out of the way, to a degree, this pdf represents more of an amazing thing, we begin with establishing the connection between suites of playing card decks and tarot decks corresponding to another. The values for cards of the minor arcana are properly assigned their values. Since the deck contains one more face card per suit, but ...

20 Things #14: Hill Giant Steading (System Neutral Edition) An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of Raging Swan Press' system-neutral #20-series clocks in at 12 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let's take a look! We begin this pdf with 10 dynamic events for a given hill giant steading, created to evoke the illusion of a dungeon that's alive - from orc slaves carrying bloody wolf pelts to the smoke of burning meat and strange impromptu games (tied to another table herein), the selection is nice. But how do you know these deadly foes are near? Well 10 things you can discover nearby ought to give you a clue, provided you know that triangular accumulations of stones, topped by wyvern skulls, may be territory markers...and the classic, deep footprint may also be a tell-tale sign. And yep, that crucified, moldering corpse yonder? That once was an orc before the giants got their grimy hands on him... Of course, giants, i...
