Complete Characters, Reviewed! And Discounted!

Just a quick hit tonight as I get back into my writing routine after battling the great monster known as The Cold. After a week of alternating my Day- and Ny-Quil like an addict, I’m nearly back to being me. Well, maybe an extra mucus-y me. I awoke from my OTC-induced coma to find that my fellow blogger over at Reality Refracted took the time to…

Review – Paizo’s Inner Sea Poster Map Folio

The  Inner Sea Poster Map Folio is the culmination of several years of Paizo’s development of their Golarion setting. Let me start out by saying [i]I love maps.[/b] I have very fond memories of the maps from the original  Forgotten Realms Campaign Set and still pull them out from time to time to look at. I also am a sucker for the …

Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes Review (PS3)

Here is another review about a game I’ve really enjoyed recently. Hours well spent compelled me also write few words about the game. Clash of Heroes tells the story of five heroes from five different areas of the same world, all coming together to fight the same overreaching demonic malevolent force. In short: the game

Convention Report: RavenCon 2011

Another Con weekend washes away in a haze of cheese dusted fingers, steampunk costumes, and hoarse throats.  This weekend, I went to Richmond, Virginia’s very own RavenCon ! None of our readers will be surprised that I spent hours upon hours hunched or standing over game tables casting dice to the fates this weekend, but RavenCon is actually not…

Magicka Review

It has been a good while since I last had the opportunity to review a game. Although Endless Bag of Games has mainly focused game reviews on console games, that doesn’t mean that it is going to stay that way: especially now that I have good new chair to rest my buttocks while enjoying PC

It Didn’t Go the Way Your Ancestors Said – Book Review of Colonial Gothic

What if history as we knew it had holes in it? What if the things that we hold true about the French and Indian Wars or American Revolution were only partially true? What if all of those kooks as Salem were really right? That there were witches and magic and all manner of unspeakable things lurking around in the dark, just out of your field of vision? That’s …

Untold: The Game – a review of this nifty CBRPG

Welcome to Untold – a traditional RPG that uses the non-traditional mechanic of cards to facilitate game play, and does it well. A few weeks ago I was offered a chance to review Untold: Splintered Serenity.  This CBRPG (Card Based Role Playing Game) by Ignitus Innovation boils down all of the books, rules and character sheets into a series of…

Review – Labyrinth Lord, Revised Edition

Up for review today, the Revised Edition of Labyrinth Lord (LL). What is LL? As one of the earlier entries in to the retro-clone releases of old versions of Dungeons & Dragons, LL’s goal is to emulate the rules from the original Basic & Expert D&D sets (often refer to as B/X, or the Moldvay-Cook version – if that doesn’…

Review: Paizo GameMastery Flip-Mat: Bandit Outpost

Given the simple nature of this product, this will be a very quick review but I figured it might be useful nonetheless, especially if you happen to be considering purchasing the map to use with the Kingmaker adventure path since it’s specifically referenced in the  Pathfinder #31: Stolen Land adventure. The Physical Product The map is double-sided, laminated heavy card stock and is designed…

Review: The M&M GM’s Kit

The GM’s Kit is an odd fish, mainly because it isn’t a fish at all. It is basically two otherwise unrelated products bundled together in a way that is either inexplicable, or very clever indeed. I can’t decide which. Thankfully though, both parts of the GM Kit are very good, and at $10 for the PDF or…

Tales From Space: About a Blob Review

I like simple games. I like them because I don’t always have time to play about an hour or two, but enough still to play a little. These short moments require a special genre of games. Those kind of games you can just grab and play a while. Tales from Space: About a Blob is

Dragon Chow Dice Bags revisited – a review of the best damn dice bag I’ve ever owned.

I almost hate to admit it, but my Crown Royal bag, after 20 loyal years since being liberated from my Mom’s top cabinet shelf,  has just been retired.  There’s a new bag in town, and it’s from Dragon Chow Dice Bags . Disclaimer: Dragon Chow Dice Bags advertise on this very site.  However, I paid for my bag, …

Review: Tribe 8 Rulebook (1st edition)

This review is a book that’s well over a decade old but well-worth more attention: Dream Pod 9′s Tribe 8 RPG. Here’s how the publisher describes it: We are the dispossessed, the Children of Hom, the Fallen, we are the Eight Tribe and we stand alone. We are those who walk away, those who turn our backs on…
