The GameMaster's Apprentice: Sci Fi

The GameMaster's Apprentice: Sci Fi A few weeks ago I bought the cards on PDF and printed to cardstock to try them out. Fantastic! I’ve run DM sessions where I struggled for a name or some sensual observation other than “what you see” and “what you hear”, and these were the perfect answer. Now, some of the sensations/names/etc. are duplicated from deck to deck, but so what? It’s far cooler to pick out the deck that “matches” the theme/genre of the game I am running and I love to support small business and creators. Win win here, folks. So… I did it. I went ahead and ordered the actual cards. All of the sets. They are stunning. They’ve got a great weight to them and shuffle so much more easily than cardstock (I know, Captain Obvious here). The printing is crisp and legible, and the little touches on the cards elevate them to a whole new level of coolness. My only question is: when are you going to create a Film Noir set? Or maybe one with a Greco-Roman history theme? **hint hint**...

Stock Art - Banshee Fantastic piece of art. It really pops out of the page with textured ectoplasm (if that's a thing!). I used it for the cover of my RPG (credited) and I'm delighted with it. Brilliant design - I'll look out for more from Critical Hit!

Juggernaut I played this game using a couple of Rock Band drum kits and boxes as Juggernaut, with a tray holding the deck of cards. It was an incredibly tense game and a nicely simple one to prepare for. If you want some Twilight Zone style fun and an introduction to Parlour LARP, then this is for you. I wrote a full review and enclosed some photos of my group in lab coats here: http://www.whodaresrolls.com/rpgs/juggernaut/

Pam's Vintage Tarot size

Pam's Vintage Tarot size {{Dear deck creator, if you're reading: **Please** give a similar treatment to a Marseille deck!!!!}} Now on to the review: At long last, I have found "THE DECK" for me!!! At least for RWS style decks. I am a fan of borderless cards and removing the titles makes the deck more universal but I love that the majors still have numerals. The decorative motif on the corners go well with the vintage effect and remind me of the time period the images were first created in. But the real gem is also this cardstock! It feels and shuffles like no other deck I own without being glossy or plastic feeling and simply perfect. I also personally love the tuck box - it's construction is not one I've had before but I find it charming, easy enough to get cards in and out of and I like to see tuck boxes get tattered up with time. But if the box were fancier I'd get that too. ...

Potion School This game is a lot of fun! I picked it up because I know the guy who made it from my Twitch stream but I didn't expect it to actually be this good ! Mechanics are easy to learn but strategies are plentiful, so it was really fast to get started but still highly replayable even with the same group of people. Overall I'm super happy with this game!

Night Witches This is an absolutely amazing game! From the themes and structure, to mechanics. It all comes together perfectly to tell the story of these airwomen. It made for the best roleplaying campaign that I've ever played.

Vampire the Masquerade: Giovanni

Vampire the Masquerade: Giovanni **Moonstone Clan Comics Review:** I decided to purchase all of the old Moonstone VTM comics in anticipation for the upcoming ones from Vault Comics, and wow, these things sure are a product of their era. Oftentimes they’re edgy for the sake of being edgy, lacking even the semblance of substance. The characters are often poorly fleshed out and completely unbelievable. Everything that happens in the narrative is there only to throw you off the trail of the inevitable, horribly convoluted and nonsensical twist. There are constant red herrings throughout and then when the twist happens, you’re left in shock at the utter stupidity. But for that reason, they can be genuinely entertaining, like a B-movie. **Giovanni Review:** The plot here focuses on the two characters being conscripted to bid on a painting for Pietro Giovanni and the hijinks that ensue thereof. This comic is only 52 pages long and I stopped reading to take a break multiple times because I was so bored. The two main c...

Vampire the Masquerade: Theo Bell

Vampire the Masquerade: Theo Bell I’ve already covered the clan issues, so now I’m on to the issues following the exploits of signature VTM characters. This one tells the story of a city in chaos and the resulting fighting and scheming for power. It’s an oft-used tabletop scenario put to the page. It follows Theo Bell (of whom we get the internal monologue, which is often bitter and displays the disdain he has for his position in the Camarilla) as he tries to bring order to a city with an problem involving thin bloods and Masquerade breaches. In the clan issues, whenever kindred fed, they always either killed or embraced their victim. It’s like the authors were not aware that there was another option. However, here we finally get to see a Kindred practicing restraint and trying to adhere to the tenets of humanity. And for individuals with whom he has to get into combat situations, he shows pity and, occasionally, mercy. This is so much better than any of the clan issues from Moonstone and I definitely recommend i...

None of the characters or events make any sense. There are multiple twists, each dumber than the last. I wish I could complain about every reason the twists are s...

Several pages are dedicated to a movie that’s being shown and half of the entire thing is a recounting of the history of vampires. The history doesn’t really match any of the canon I’m aware of and one character even comme...

It tells the tale of a girl abducted by a Nosferatu. While not all of their interactions are believable and the state of mind of the characters can be erratic and hard to pinpoint, the n...

Potlatch: A Game About Economics

Potlatch: A Game About Economics This is a nice fun activity. It's not so much of a game (even collaboratively) as an exercise in understanding how prestige and charity work together in the squamish culture. Howver, if you make the game a little harder it's a bit easier to get some real competition in for the passive-aggressive giving. I was honoured to be able to help bring his educational project to fruition and still enjoy using it. I also backed it in such a way as to give a copy to a teacher I know in British Columbia. ...

Bestiary Playing Cards

Bestiary Playing Cards This is a incomplete deck of playing cards. Every card contains a image of a different creature. The artwork inspires the imagination. Very clean, very detailed. The diamond, clubs, spades, and heart symbols are easily identifiable but have a kinda awsome look. There are also images of six sided dice on the cards. They do not have an official use but do look neat. I think I could use the deck of cards instead of rolling dice. Sort of like in the "fighting fantasy" books. I really like the cards, and look forward to seeing what else this artist produces....
