Date Added: 04/26/2019 08:55:10

A really fantastic module. The Titanic setting is just ripe for horror and mystery, and its taken great advantage of here. It also suits the Trail of Cthulhu system/style really well. You can listen to an actual play of this moduel over at: http://thetabletopreview.com/podcast/?p=212

H1 Keep on the Shadowfell & Quick-Start Rules (4e)
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
by Stephen M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/26/2019 08:52:38

This is probably my single favourite adventure module, in any system. the whole town setting is a great into to D&D for beginners, and a fun classic setting for long time players. Interesting NPCs and good "missions".

Doctor Who Roleplaying Game
Publisher: Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.

This is a fantastic game. The rules perfectly reflect and allow for just the right kind of crazy that is so common in Doctor Who. The action-based initiative system especially is very fun.

Eclipse Phase: Rimward
Publisher: Posthuman Studios LLC
by Stephen M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/26/2019 08:38:05

This book is seriously near perfect. It gives exactly what you expect and want, all new worlds and ways to kill your characters and drive them insane. Imagine if Stargate was run by corporations and had much more alien planets, that's what this is.

The Monsters: A Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition Quickstart
Publisher: Modiphius
by Stephen M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/26/2019 08:35:26

A fair/good quickstart wth a few issues. The V5 system is great, that is absolutly not at fault. The story is intersting, an investiagtion with some interesting characters. but at the end it starts to tell the players what to think and say. It is also a bit too long for a one-shot.

John Carter of Mars Core Rulebook
Publisher: Modiphius
by Stephen M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/26/2019 07:56:53

This is an absolute must buy for any John Carter fans. the spirit and tone of the original books are perfectly replicated in the modified 2d20 system. the removal of skils and focus on the talets is a good choice and fits the settign well. I probably would have given five starts, but I don't think there is enough information about the details of daily life of the base cultures, partiularly the green martians. I doubt that someone could pick this up and run a game without having read at least the first book of the series.

Mutant City Blues
Publisher: Pelgrane Press
by TTR S. M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/17/2013 07:28:03

This is an excellent game that has a fun and interesting take on the Cop Drama genre and superpower/mutant games, and one that fits the Gumshoe system perfectly. Mutant City Blues is set in the near future, where 1% of the population have developed mutant powers in a similar style to The X-Men. To borrow a line from the book, that means 1% of the criminals now have superpowers, and 1% of the police and other law enforcement officers that pursue them. In the fictional world presented in the book, the law (and society) has adapted to this new status quo by accepting most of these new abilities, possession of some powers require licencing and other are outright outlawed, with a horrific “Minority Reportesque” pre-emptive incarceration and forced sedation in store for anybody that is unfortunate enough to manifest them, but most powers are simply accepted and are now accepted as part of society as a whole. Law Enforcement of the world recognised the need for a special unit dedicated to dealing with mutant related cases, and this is where the players are assumed to be placed. I’ve seen this referred to as a “Superhero” game, but I believe those people have taken a drastically incorrect view of the setting. This, in my view, is a Cop Drama first and foremost. Law and Order the RPG, with mutants. While the setting does include “superpowers”, a gritty realism is (or rather, can be) a core element of the setting and it works very well when used. The Gumshoe system lends itself very well to the setting. The new “Quade Diagram” pseudo-scientific system used to create the “Mutations” and related “Defects” is truly excellent. It make creating a character with mutations very interesting, sure you can create Superman or Spider-Man or Wolverine, but you have to take the bad with the good, and the defects (that are mandatory when taking certain powers) are quite severe. The standard Gumshoe system of Investigation and General points works very well, perhaps best in this setting than in any of the other printed Gumshoe book. As a GM, I found this game was best run with two player characters, creating either a “Law or Order” or “Buddy Cop” feel, depending on the attitudes of the players at the time. This is a fantastic game, and deserves a lot more people playing it that I suspect it gets.

Eclipse Phase: Gatecrashing Hack Pack
Publisher: Posthuman Studios LLC
by Stephen M. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/06/2011 18:16:50

Where do you go exploring in a solar system that is filled with people?

Gatecrashing, The second expansion book for the Eclipse Phase RPG, answers that question rather well. With the introduction of detailed information on the Pandora Gates, which were mentioned in the core book, players can now explore planets in other solar systems by traveling through these gates.

While the weird and wonderful locations you can reach through the Pandora Gates are the focus of the book, just as interesting is the politics and intrigue surrounding the possession of and access to the Gates. The mysterious origins of the Pandora Gates and the potential profit to be had by those possessing them are ripe for a backstabbing and betrayal filled campaign.

The actual extrasolar missions themselves as describes are filled with hazards form these strange new planets, and this things that can be encountered there. and the potential for being stranded in these strange places breeds paranoia in bucket fulls.

If there is anything to not like about this book, it is perhaps that too much is borrowed from the Stargate franchise. At some points the descriptions of the Gates and their operating procedures could be a carbon copy of a Stargate description. Perhaps a little more effort could have been put into distancing it from such a popular series with such a similar premise. That said, when taken in context with the Eclipse Phase setting as a whole, it works very well.

Overall, an excellent product that any sci-fi RPG fan should pick up.
