Quick Review: DC Adventures Hero’s Handbook 0

DC Adventures Hero’s Handbook – I’ve heard a lot about this product on various podcasts and blogs and I was interested in seeing it when it arrived.  I’ve never been a huge fan of the super hero genre for role playing or honestly of the DC Universe.  Now that I have this PDF in my hands, my expectations were…

Doctor Who – Adventures in Time and Space Review 0

I’ll begin by saying that if you are unaware of the glory that is the British Science Fiction hit, Doctor Who , you have almost 50 years of television to catch up on.  However, thankfully, Cubicle 7 wrote this game to cover a relatively small but very pertinent portion of the Doctor’s grand history.  Though it makes reference to the series as a whole, we really are just concerned …

Review – Pathfinder’s Kingmaker, Volume 1: Stolen Land 0

Paizo’s newest adventure path is a marked departure from their earlier efforts. Previous paths have had six closely linked adventures with a more or less linear plot leading PCs from 1st to 15th (or so) level, where they then meet and (we hope) defeat the evil mastermind behind the vast majority of the trouble they have faced. The key point is that …

I know that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel to create a good game. That is why we tend to see games copying each other’s ideas resulting in a flop or a success. But when a game combines different game genress together, it is risky business, but sometimes the risk is worth it; such

Quick Review: The Genius Guide to the Time Thief, a new character class for Pathfinder 0

Leave it to the folks at OtherWorld Creations to come up with new, inventive and plausible character classes.  Plausible that is, in the sense that elves and dragons are wandering around out there as well. The Time Thief takes a neat spin on a rogue-like character – one who can literally steal time.  Taking little bits of time (motes) from their own future and…

The GameMastery Face Cards Enemy deck is the latest in Paizo’s line of playing card-sized play aids. They are designed to be handed out by GMs to give their players a face to put to the names of major NPCs.

Raging Swan Press have put together a solid, 37 page adventure for a lower level Pathfinder party .  Taking place in and around the village of Swallowfeld, this adventure is something of a murder mystery packaged within a weather torn priory, for one.  Actually, Swallowfeld contains several adventure hooks revolving around the village and what goes on there. What I really enjoy about this …
