Chaque unité possède un look et une saveur particulière tout en restant cohérente avec l'état d'esprit de son armée.
Même si je compte me procurer tous les compendium et suppléments, les Geoghorgon resteront très certainement ma faction favorite.
J'aurais simplement aimé en savoir plus sur eux et avoir une imprimante 3D à disposition !
Téléchargé par curiosité, tombée sous le charme à la première lecture !
Les points positifs :
* une mise en page aérée et colorée (le jeu de couleurs est superbe !)
* les illustrations, qui ont une âme
* des règles claires et simples rendant les déplacements et les combats rapides (exactement ce que je recherche dans un jeu d'escarmouche, surtout pas du simulationnisme avec des centaines de tableaux auxquels se référer)
* des factions originales qui donnent envie d'en apprendre plus sur leur histoire (et les influences qu'il y a derrière ; le Geoghorgon sur la couverture me fait franchement penser à du Evangelion)
* un système facile à adapter à ses préférences (je joue sur une surface moitié moins grande que celle recommandée donc je divise les Bons de Guerre, le Karma et les déplacements par deux)
* 2 fiches d'unité et 3 scénarios (+1 pour quatre joueurs) pour commencer à jouer, tout ça gratos !
Les petits bémols (tout à fait personnels) :
* que les mesures soie...
Really nice model, so far only printed the cab section. Only hiccup was the Holes on the tires are a bit small compared to the pegs, suspension holes as well, But its a model and modelling is required! Great experience, will be buying more vehicles!

I love steampunk RPGs and I love fast-pacing adventures.
In Vulcania everything is designed for putting the players directly in to the action without a lot of downtime that normally I hate! The d12 system is amazing (yes there isn't only the d20 in the RPG universe).. with a single roll you know if You have hit and how much damage You have done.. So You can be totally focused on what you have to do..
And I also loved the character building! Few steps and You have an enjoyable son of a BIC to play with..
Game really recommended, super friendly and great value!
I enjoyed this solo game more than many other similar titles I have played. The rules were very tight. The game took about an hour. I felt engaged the entire time.
I look forward to future books by the author.
I highly recommend giving this a try, especially at this price.
This game is a great entry point if you are looking to get someone started in wargaming like a child or a friend. It is accessible to play a single game and it is fast paced. Playing a game should come to a satisfactory conclusion after just five rounds. The campaign does add rules, and they do help generate a narrative as you play.
These rules are great for what they are. They are an affordable set of easy to learn and quick to play rules. If you already have a large collection of rules, then you might want to pass on this one. There is one disclaimer to this though; the scenario generator is simple, yet it can help you come up with a quick story on the fly. It could be worth printing out and keeping near your table for when you need a narrative for your game.

I loved it!
Finally a different RPG with steampunk elements into a crazy world.
Flyings ships? CHECK!
Great illustrations? CHECK!
Humor and lot of ides? CHECK!
The d12 system works and it something different from the other games.
If you want a different RPG buy Vulcania!
Firstly this game is based on Frostgrave. It is by no means just an out and out copy, or reskinning in a science fantasy mileu, but the rather direct lineage is pretty obvious once you get into mechanics. This is fine, originality is often completely tangental to quality. And this game is good. A strong foundation met with tinkering to make it better fit the setting. Nothing seems obviously unbalanced or unfun in the games I've played.
There used to be one rather agressive caveat, which is why this review used to be only 3 stars. Namely the font was horrible, actively painful to try and read at times.
This issue was fixed litterally the morning after I posted the original review, so the creators deserve credit for a remarkably quick response....
Fantastic art as always. I really like how it has so many pillars whicih can create great effects when using the line of site feature in Fantasy Grounds. Should give my player the willies knowing there is a medusa somewhere amount the pilliars (oh no- there's actually two that are twins)!
I like this - the art is really nice. I feel this is an excellent map for use in Waterdeep Dragon Heist or a location for Storm King's Thunder should you visit the city of splendors. You can use it in any city campaign.
This is a great publication. I was fortunate enough to get it on deal of the day so was doubly pleased. I have played several of the scenarios and they are just what a wargamer wants. Enough information to put the action into context and then all the OOBs, maps, scenario specific rules and victory conditions. While I do not use command decision rules the scenarios are easily convertible to my preferred Fistful of TOWs rules. One of the best things about the scenarios is that they cover small to large actions and there is an index giving all the details so you can find exctly what you want very easily....
A very nice set of scenarios derived from Avalance Press Panzer Grenadier scenarios. The author has provided copies of original scale maps from that time period. The scenarios are written from a Command Decission stand point with OBs and weapons characteristics, but are easily convertable to any rule set that has a stand/counter representing a platoon. Well worth the cost.
The quality of the map is very good for the price. This can work in a fantasy, horror, or even western style (Deadlands) game. The files were pretty large and I had top use GIMP in order to reduce the size to a more managable chucnk since I am using them on Roll 20. Overall, a great product.
