Ghost Planets • A World of Adventure for Fate Core
Publisher: Evil Hat Productions, LLC
by David D. [Verified Purchaser]

Excellent concept. Mediocre execution. The entire premise hinges on the question 'what happened to the alien life in the universe?' and the book sadly never answers it. in typical FATE fashion it offers several possible solutions, but unlike other FATE products, each answer is both weak and shallow. Hardcore FATE fans might find some enjoyment here, but otherwise I'd skip it as there are much deeper products in the genre even at pay-what-you-want pricing.

Andromeda • A World of Adventure for Fate Core
Publisher: Evil Hat Productions, LLC
by David D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/05/2019 09:45:18

Amazing epic space opera

You could run multiple campaigns for years with this supplement

The core conceit is that you're a leader aboard a space ark bringing humanity to the mysterious Andromeda galaxy. Are your colonists frozen? generational inhabitants? or cloned upon arrival? your choice! the book has many scenarios for each

Upon reaching Andromeda you must decide who has gone before? are you the first ArkShip to arrive? the second wave? Or a straggler behind the curve? Each has surprising impact upon the state of the galaxy and what you find there

Finally there are all the perils of Andromeda. Establishing a colony and dealing with the natives and other humans from rival ArkShips.

I can't say enough good things about this product. I don't like FATE but this book will be well used believe that!

OneDice Abney Park's Airship Pirates
Publisher: Cakebread & Walton
by David D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/19/2019 03:45:34

Simple but serviceable. I'm not usually a fan of steampunk but this product presents an evocative and well thought out setting that makes steampunk very palatable. Several cultures and a long stretch of history are presented. I'd highly recommend this product to anyone looking for something new and different. Full colour professional art throughout.

Knights of Invasion • A World of Adventure for Fate Core
Publisher: Evil Hat Productions, LLC
by David D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/10/2019 19:40:58

I don't like FATE but i LOVE this adventure. The initial medieval setting is well designed by itself. The book actually contains 3 distinct alien invasion scenarios ALL of which are well written, well thought out, well detailed, and FUN.

I really wanted to dislike this product due to the ruleset but everything else other than the rules is so well done, useful, and original that I can't really go lower than 5 stars.

I can't wait to run it (but I will certainly NOT be using FATE to do so!)

Offworlders
Publisher: Chris Wolf
by David D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/11/2019 11:09:43

Rrules light scifi RPG married to a narrative storytelling system. Offworlders has a good concept, and a tight focus on what it wants to accomplish but the ruleset is sadly just a bit too narrative and immersion breaking to be an effective RPG. if you like FATE and other storytelling games then it might be for you, but for those seeking immersion, and a consistent setting with versamilitude it's likely a pass.

Hulks and Horrors - Basic Black Edition
Publisher: Bedroom Wall Press
by David D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/11/2019 11:05:04

An excellent scifi OSR Variant. Play as a Pilot, Soldier, Scientist, or Psyker and delve into ancient hulks full of mutants and battledroids. Every bit as strong as Stars Without Number or White Star and in some ways better designed than either.

My one complaint to keep me from giving a 5 star review is that the 'programs' of the scientist class don't make any sense. They have battery life and 'high level programs' in a similar way to how a psyker has psychic talents and psychic energy, but for something mechanical that doesn't make sense. Even a low level scientist should be able to buy or steal high level programs and batteries. it's about as silly as saying a soldier can only use assault rifles once he reaches a certain level and has a limited number of bullets based on his level. very immersion breaking.

Other than that it's one of the strongest scifi rulesets out there. Well worth checking out

GURPS Classic: Espionage
Publisher: Steve Jackson Games
by David D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/11/2019 10:52:09

Exactly the kind of excellent quality you should expect from a GURPS sourcebook. Whether you want to run a gritty 'beer and pretzels' style of spy game or a 'champagne and caviar' James Bond adventure this book has everything you need to get the job done. Includes spy job descriptions, gadgets, organizations, mission types, and historical anecdotes.

Exactly what i was hoping for. Great breakdown of any common OSR products, what they do well, how they differ, and also some creator interviews. Well worth the cost of admission for any OSR fan

Adventurer Conqueror King System
Publisher: Autarch
by David D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/11/2019 10:48:12

Excellent OSR system with a strong focus on 'high level play' meaning political play where you become kings, archmages, high priests, merchant princes, and crime lords.

If you want to be able to constantly play the 'game of thrones' with many factions and types of faction this game is for you. Huge variety, and many tables to help randomly generate or simulate political and economic changes in your world.

HELLAS: Worlds of Sun and Stone 2nd Edition
Publisher: Khepera Publishing
by David D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/12/2018 15:02:28

I have regretted very few RPG purchases over my gaming career, but this is one of them. Fans of Starfinder, or Masters of the Universe might like it. But it runs solely on 'rule of cool' with no logic or internal consistency to be had anywhere.

D6 does the basics admirably. It starts to fall down when you need 'extras' though. Powers (Magical or Psionic), Vehicles, and Giant Monsters are not the systems forte.

The other major flaw is the attributes are not very intuitive. 6 Attributes each with skills attached, but which skills are tied to which attribute often eems arbitrary. Once it's memorized it won't be a big issue, but it's a minor hurdle in learning the system.

That being said; D6 is solid. It lets you make a wide range of characters, and conduct basic scenes admirably. It's a very difficult system to 'break' or 'powergame'. Simple and to-the-point for the most part.

Just a tad bit too cluinky for my liking. But still a solid ruleset. It'll just require some system mastery to really make excellent use of it.

A few really interesting new takes on old school classic monsters here. And also a few monsters not often seen in a Bestiary. well worth an addition to any collection.
