Legends of Steel: Savage Worlds Edition [Review]

Let me start by saying that  Legends of Steel gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.  I love the tone and style, which are right on.  The cover drew me in from the start, and the illustrations maintained a consistent feel throughout the PDF.  On a similar note, the Edges, especially the Professional Edges, continue to set the tone for a …

The ROLPUNK of Reviewing [Blog]

From Berin Kinsman : Take what works, leave the rest, and have fun. A truer sentence has never been spoken.

Today’s review is Sly Flourish’s Dungeon Master Tips by Mike Shae. It’s available only in electronic format (as a PDF, Kindle eBook, ePub, or MobiPocketBook) for $7.99.

Quick Review – Fey Folio: Clans of the Fey for the Pathfinder RPG

I have an abiding love for the world of the Fey.  It’s clear that Alluria Publishing share this love with me.  They’ve spent a lot of effort to make a fantastic product in the Fey Folio: Clans of the Fey . Let’s start with the content because, when it comes down to gaming, that’s the most important …

Best way to change your Windows 7 Starter wallpaper – found!

Much as I’m a Linux geek at heart, I will happily confess that Windows 7 is easily the best version of that veritable Operating System, by a mile. On my little netbook it just flies, works faultlessly and does just what a good Operating System should do – let me get on with stuff and be as unobtrusive as possible. But there…

Review – The Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting

Another couple weeks, another Paizo review. Yeah, I know I’ve had quite a few reviews for Paizo stuff lately but that’s because I am using a couple of their adventure paths as the basis of ongoing 4E campaigns, plus to be frank, I find a lot of their products really interesting to read and thus it’s easy to write reviews on them. Today’s review is the…

Review – The Dresden Files RPG, Volume 1: Your Story

The Dresden Files RPG is the latest offering from Evil Hat Productions . Based on their popular, award-winning  FATE system , it represents a culmination of many years of effort – the game has been five years in development, and the extremely popular Spirit of the Century was something of a dry run for this game. It is obviously based on the popular Dresden Files line of novels by Jim Butcher…

Well hello Stephanie 4

The good people at DAZ3d released a new figure yesterday. Let’s all say hi and give a round of applause for Stephanie 4 Elite ! Stephanie 4, default settings. Bodysuit + 3Dream Boy Hair Steph (she hates being called that but I’m going to do it anyway) is a whole new version of the previous Stephanie 3 figure. I guess …

Welcome to WordPress three point oh

To honour the release of the latest and greatest version of WordPress, I have changed the theme on my blog to Twenty Ten for just one day. This is the new default theme, and a worthy replacement to the aged and outmoded Kubrick. May he rest in piece. The upgrade from 2.9.2 to 3.0 went disappointingly smoothly. There were no high-tension plugin…

iPad Review (part 2)

After completing the first part of my review I realized I ought to at least provide a basic review of the day-to-day functions of the iPad before talking about RPG uses specifically. Thus, I’ve pushed that topic to part 3 and today I’ll talk specifically about the ordinary functions of the iPad along with my experiences with some of the peripherals. Let’s get…

OneBookShelf Blogger Program [Site]

Dearest readers, I thought it might be wise to advise you all that I have elected to participate in a OneBookShelf affiliate program that gives me access to review copies of more than a few products, as well as an affiliate link program for the store.  I’ve been a big fan the folks at DriveThruRPG ever since I started buying game…

Testing out the WordPress for iPad App

As I mentioned earlier in the week, I bought myself an iPad and have been giving it a full workout, both for regular use and also at the game table. One of the things out I’d like to use the iPad for is posting to my blog while out of town and so I downloaded the Wordpress app (which is free). It&#…

10 Things to like about the ICONS RPG

1. Beer & Pretzels superhero role-playing I don’t mean that this is a game about Beer & Pretzels in the same way that D&D is about Dungeons & Dragons (though that would be kinda cool. Weird, but cool). ICONS is an RPG you can pick up and be playing in under an hour, though also has a surprising amount of lasting depth when you look under the …

New Super Mario Is The Devil

I’ve often been the victim of that bag of chips from which I can’t seem to stop snacking. I’ve stuck with that television show long after it jumped the shark and yet I couldn’t look away. I’ve even been lured into the web of that girl who I know isn’t really interested, but flirts just enough to give me that sliver of …

Feeding Frenzy 2 Review: Shipwreck Showdown

Once again, PopCap Games deliver some pleasure eating two dimensional fish. It is still addictive and frustrating as ever. This child-friendly game will deliver a good option to find your place in the marina-foodchain. So chomp your way through an underwater mystery, play solo or online to dodge some predators or just try to stay

Enter "The Gamers Realm"

Color me surprised. No, you’d better make that “shocked.” When I first decided to check out a new gaming store in my little burg, it was at the suggestion of a potential gaming buddy. We’ve been trying to figure out when and where to host a game for months now, and he told me that an acquaintance of his stumbled across…
