Vampire the Masquerade: Theo Bell
by Ryan G.
Publisher: Moonstone
Date Added: 04/16/2020 05:13:07
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...

Vampire the Masquerade: Ventrue
by Ryan G.
Publisher: Moonstone

Vampire the Masquerade: Ventrue **Moonstone Clan Comics Review:** I decided to purchase all of the old Moonstone VTM clan comics in anticipation for the upcoming run 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. **Ventrue Review:** In regard to all of the negative things said above, this Ventrue issue is easily the worst offender. 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...

But for that reason, they can be genuinely entertaining, like a B-movie. **Toreador Review:** Very little happens in this clan issue. 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...

But for that reason, they can be genuinely entertaining, like a B-movie. **Nosferatu Review:** All that said, this Nosferatu issue is easily the best of the clan issues. 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. ...

Night Witches A great self-contained game, with a very precise setting and rules that enrich the immersion in that setting.

How to Host a Dungeon FREE VERSION This is a great product! I mean it's free! But also a great idea on how to make a handy dungeon simulator that has more depth to it than most RPG's put into their dungeons. You have some control over how things play out. Fantastic 5/5!

Dungeon Deck
by Patrick C.
Publisher: Crooked Staff Publishing
Date Added: 01/21/2020 15:24:50
Dungeon Deck This is an entertaining deck. Each card has a different image, more or less. Some are mirrors or rotations of other cards, but this is not actually a problem, just an observation. The images take up more or less the top square portion of the card, with suit and rank acorss the bottom. Printing seems to be close enough to perfect, as there's no problem aligning multilple cards. Use them for inspiration in designing your own catacombs, or for flavor in a game that uses cards as props. I really want to use them for a Savage Worlds chase through the sewers....

Thrilling Tales Adventure Deck (Savage Worlds)

Thrilling Tales Adventure Deck (Savage Worlds) As other reviewers have said, these are great cards, both in appearance and usefulness. I'll just add that I've only found one that doesn't work with SWADE, a card that allows the player to trade bennies for XP. Which is a testament to the excellent design work that went into these.

It's Not My Fault! (A Fate Accelerated Character & Situation Generator) До этого были попытки играть в Fate, все не очень удачные. А этот инструмент фактически открыл нам фейт с новой стороны - быстрое создание персонажей, быстрые ваншоты.

Rainbow Deck

Rainbow Deck Really cool idea! I've used it a few times now and am really enjoying being able to get some out of print card games played. It is only 4 stars due to the fact that there is some mental gymnastics that are needed to make some of the games playable which is not always the easiest to grasp. Also, and I know it's part of the design of the deck, I wish there was an option to not get the 4 sectioned back. I don't plan on using the "board" ever and would like them to look more like regular cards, at least from the back....

Jon Hodgson Map Tiles - Forest Tiles No Grid At first I was a little unsure for how these would work out. But I finally got a chance to play with the map tiles and loved them. It makes it really easy to throw out a random map in a few seconds. Great for random encounters. And with a bit of planning some more elaborite stuff can be easily made as well.

Backstory Cards

Backstory Cards I can't imagine doing Session 0 without these cards. In my top 10 of "GM's must have tools". Regardless if it is Fantasy, Sci-fi, etc. they are essential and facillitate quick, collaborative, character connections. A gem to have. Be sure to get printed ones. Having the physical cards are worth it.
