Doctor Who – Adventures in Time and Space Review

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

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 …

Quick Review: In One’s Blood – new bloodlines and spells for Pathfinder Sorcerers

In One’s Blood is 25 pages of new Sorcerer bloodlines, spells and abilities which can add some oomph, or ooze, to your game.  Done in an easy to print black and white format, light on the graphics but heavy on content, players and GMs will find this expansion to the Sorcerer class fun and useful. The new blood lines consist of Aquatic, …

Borderlands Review

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

Warrior, Rogue & Mage

Michael Wolf’s excellent Warrior, Rogue & Mage is available for free on DriveThruRpg .  You can check out my earlier review here .  The new edition is as good as the first.  Always room for improvement, of course, but WR&M is a solid, free fantasy RPG with its own special twist.  Go try it out.

Quick Review: Making Craft Work – a workable system for crafting items in Pathfinder

Crafting items is one of those things that just hasn’t worked correctly according to the rules, since the advent of the d20 system.  Easy crafting tasks, that in game should take a day or two could stretch on for weeks or months of in game time and hard tasks, well, some of them could be completed in a…

The Genius Guide to the Armiger [Review]

I love OtherWorld Creations , and I love their Genius Guides .  Their Pathfinder creations are worth every penny for the extra content they provide.  My favorite so far is the Genius Guide to the Shadow Assassin , but today I’d like to talk about the Genius Guide to the Armiger . The armiger is an interesting concept.  While I was not sold on it…

Review – Dresden Files RPG: Our World (vol. 2)

The second volume in the two Dresden Files RPG books released by Evil Hat , Our World features an incredibly detailed overview of the world, creatures, and characters featured in the Dresden Files universe as established by the series of novels. The authors (and specifically Chad Underkoffler) clearly put in an exhaustive amount of research in detailing every notable character (these are likely to be used as NPCs in the …

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

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…

Review – GameMastery Face Cards: Enemies Deck

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. Most of the faces come from Paizo’s previous adventure paths and thus are perfectly suited for GMs running one of the adventure paths. For example, King …

Quick Review: Swallowfeld – a Pathfinder adventure setting for a low level party

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 …

Quick Review: In the Company of Gargoyles – a new player race and class for Pathfinder

Once again Rite Publishing comes through with an fun addition to the Pathfinder/3.5 universe.  In the Company of Gargoyles is nicely formatted and illustrated; coming in both a print friendly version and a more ornate version is a plus.  The layout is well done and everything is easy to find via the table of contents. This expansion features Gargoyles as a playable race, and a new …
