Beans In Space!
Publisher: Fabled Worlds
by Tavernmaster G. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/07/2013 12:06:43

I have already put in writing my unbounded enthusiasm for the rules-lite roleplaying game Bean! There really isn't any setting or genre that it cannot be adapted for and Beans in Space just goes to prove this.

The bulk of the material in this supplement comes from the incredibly fertile mind of 'Mad' Roy Cram. Combine this with Jeff Freels' stunning artwork plus a good job of editing, for which I can claim some small personal credit, and it all adds up to a truly epic piece of work. I cannot wait to get my son exploring the final frontier with the Beanfolk from Terrafavus. If you have downloaded any of the previous Bean! supplements or you are someone who enjoys role-playing and you're looking for a fun game that doesn't keep you bogged down in rules, then this is the game for you.

TrollsZine! #7
Publisher: Flying Buffalo

Once more the Trollszine has arrived. With its fantastic mix of articles, GM adventures and even a solo it more than lives up to the tremendous standards set by the previous half a dozen issues. There is something for everyone here ranging from a learned discussion about gunpowder and early firearms by Justin Williams to a piece for the New Khazan setting detailing doomsday weapons from David Moskowitz. Jesse Lambert's mini solitaire adventure 'The Wizard's Hut' is great fun and the author has even done his own excellent illustrations; how I'd like to be able to do that! Perhaps my favourite piece is from Dan Prentice talking about special damage and how to expand its use in your campaign. I even learned that 'spite' damage was a concept introduced to T&T by the one and only Roy Cram in the pages of the brilliant Sorcerer's Apprentice. I have only scratched the surface of what is on offer in this edition of Trollszine, but cannot praise all the contributors and, of course, Dan Hembry for all his hard work editing and pulling it all together, enough. There is so much brilliant material here it just comes as such a surprise that someone has given it a rating of just 1 out of 5. I cannot imagine anyone who plays T&T who would not want to have this great resource available. Well done again all involved and 5 out of 5 from this troll!

I know this review could be considered biased as Jeff Freels is a friend of mine and I have contributed to this and other BEAN! products from Fabled Worlds. However, since I'm being up front about my potential conflict of interests perhaps you'll take the time to read what I have to say.

Beanworld has been long in construction and I think that is reflected in the quality of all parts of it. As always, Jeff's artwork is brilliant and in particular the fantastic maps of the many and varied continents, islands and peninsulas that go to making up the habitable lands of the planet of the bean folk. Each country has its own section where the topography, fauna and sentient races present are discussed.

The beauty of Beanworld is that it provides enough detail to get any prospective BeanMaster's creative juices flowing but there is enough room to add all sorts of places, monsters and adventures of your own. Mad Roy Cram has produced a massive bestiary of Beanworld (the beanstiary) which adds so many potential opponents or allies to those found in the original rulebook. On top of this, Jeff has constructed all sorts of civilisations from the neolithic to steampunk and beyond for you to use in your adventures.

Trust me, if you like playing BEAN!, or you haven't yet explored the delights of the only D2 RPG, this supplement is a must.
