Mockery breed: Murder birds
by Ellen S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/28/2021 10:08:01
Mockery breed: Murder birds These 'Were-cassowaries' are a great idea and worth exploring, but I think they need more polish, detail, and mechanical work. However, this little pdf is Pay What You Want, so the author isn't asking much. I think that with additional work and detail, these could become a very solid addition to Werewolf: The Apocalypse. As they are, I like them but do have some thematic and mechanical concerns. The Good: It's entirely plausible for Pentex to unleash these things on Australia. They're certainly an improvement over hypothetical dingo-based War Wolves, on a continent where wererhinos really won't work. Cassowaries are fierce and dangerous birds, and suitable stock for a Mockery Breed. The idea for how they turned towards Gaia is a good seed, and of all the Mockery Breeds they have the best chance of redemption. The name is also great - fitting and very 21st century. Overall, this is a great idea. The Unpolished: Thematically, the Murder Birds' rede...

Mage The Ascension Tarot

Mage The Ascension Tarot Super happy with these. My old deck got destroyed. The quality of print, if you look really close, isn't quite the same as the originals but that's just me being fussy. And the card weight is slightly closer to a normal playing card than the originals. But again, fussy. As I said I am made up I have this deck back despite these slight criticisms. (the postage to UK is killer so check before you click)

Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition
by Edward C. O.
Publisher: Modiphius
Date Added: 02/26/2021 13:01:12
Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition i purchased the Deluxe edition so i'll talk about the physical copy primarily. this game is... interesting, in the wrong reasons. on one hand, it is accessible to new players to get into, as a ST it is a nightmare to find information, but that's par for the course for WoD books. mechanically the blood hunger mechanic is solid! i like the potential for my players to lose themselves to the beast. the complaints that fans have about V5 have some merits to them. the discplines aren't unique, i'm not sure its to streamline them from V20 to not make your vampire a marvel superhero, or streamline for the sake of streamlining unintentionally creating singularity, no one stands out and everyone blends into one. the art is a mixed bag, subjectively, my biggest pet peeve is how the nosfuratu are pretty, which defeats the purpose of playing a vampire that wears its curse. while you can roll your eyes on this and say, well that's subjective. true, however when the text ...

Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought

Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought I love this book. It gives the dragon bloods a great unique feel and shows even weaker how dangours they can be. DBs are my favorite and this system doesnt disappoint. My only complaint is Water Dragon Bloods are kinda weak and no elemental combos for team work

Paradigm Explored: Wyrd and Weft
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/22/2021 19:21:38
Paradigm Explored: Wyrd and Weft Though there are a few minor snags in the layout work, the inclusion of a form for correction makes that an easy to ignore issue. Otherwise, this book is excellent, and I recommend it to everyone. It is an in-depth look at a specific Norse practitioner, explaining both how to do Norse magick (through the Focus system, Rotes and Wonders) and generally attempting to make the Focus system more concrete. By focusing on this one character, it gets very concrete with how her magick works and includes several allies (and given the topic, they're arguably a part of how the magic works as well). Overall, it's a very good product that does useful things, and I hope to see more like it....

Tribebook: Shadow Lords (Revised) I was worried because I read that some print-on-demand books suffer from quality control issues, but I couldn't be happier with my Shadow Lords Tribe Book.

Rite of the Spring

Date Added: 02/15/2021 13:35:14
Rite of the Spring Ce scénario complet a une structure simple mais claire et facile à prendre en main. Les conséquences amusantes sur le métagaming (modifie les règles même de Mage) sont amusantes et particulièrement immersif. S'adapte à tous les joueurs mais c'est encore plus amusant quand un des joueurs au moins est un technomancien (il sera ainsi directement impliqué). Amusant le jeu de mot de Spring et Sproing (le son émis par un ressort qui se détend..) Vraiment une pépite !

Hunter: The Vigil
by Edward C. O.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/14/2021 13:29:08
Hunter: The Vigil as of this review, 2nd edition isn't out so i am reviewing the 1.5 edition (with Mortal Remains) unfortunately they don't have the hardcover POD, but personally doesn't bother me. this is a game where you can fight the supernatural, however, over time you will go insane from the constant horrors and eventually, go mad, if you have the slasher book, become a serial killer. this is a really fun game for new players who want to get into the Chronicles of Darkness line of games.

Promethean the Created 2nd Edition
by Edward C. O.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 02/14/2021 12:57:59
Promethean the Created 2nd Edition this game, is... interesting, on one hand it is the definitive book that shows how Chronicles of Darkness themes and tone should be! i mean, playing as a frankenstein monster? all the while being chased, hunted down, while trying to atain humanity? it's really good! i bought the physical book and it stands out nicely on my book shelf! the positives aside, my biggest problem with this game, is that it isn't group friendly. this game is perfect for one-on-one play, however it's really difficult to have 2-4 players play a Promethean. however, if you want a Promethean, they work for a mixed Chronicles game, and they make great antagonists and npcs. i give this a 4 star because while the themes here are excellent, gameplay wise, it works only for one on one play, but it's great information for a NPCs or antagonist....

Strange Shades: Mekhet Loved the book, it is REALLY great to see the "clanbooks" get a second edition update. If I had one bug it would be that the Khaibit were left out(they kinda had an update but you have to find the white-wolf page on their web site)... But that's a pretty obscure quip... All in all, great book.

Demon Translation Guide

Date Added: 02/13/2021 03:04:14
Demon Translation Guide A totaly must have if you, like me, didn't liked the whole technology thing from the God Machine Chronicle. My complaints are two: The translation guide from Vampire the Masquerade to Vampire Requiem where better organized. THEY DON'T HAVE CONVERTED CHARACTER SHEET to use The Fallen on the Descent system. So you will need to print The Descent sheet and improvise. # **Update:** Unfortunately, after re-reading Demon the Fallen on the old world of darkness and then trying to run a game using this one, I found myself frustrated and having to carry 3 books in my hands: The core of demon, this and then the demon the descent. And not only that, but the organization here is terrible and many mechanics are missing explanation. They didn't even tell how to convert the fact that in apocalyptic form a demon can absorb lethal damage as bashing and I had to come up with a way based on what I know from playing Vampire the Requiem. Temporary/Permanent Torment and Faith? They converte...

World of Darkness: Slasher
by Edward C. O.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/08/2021 14:58:55
World of Darkness: Slasher to clarify what this book is. they put World of Darkness on the cover to increase sales, but it is a Source Book to Hunter the Vigil. this book is about making serial killers in Hunter the Vigil, and what cells, compact, and conspricacies have Slashers in their group. this book is not for the feint of heart (any of the WoD/CofD books aren't frankly) as it dives deep into the pyschology and mindset of a serial killer. its very interesting and complex. from your typical masked murderers, to the charismatic killers with calling cards, and so on. the reason this book is a source book for hunters, is that at some point, hunters go insane. they see horrors that only their group can understand, and what happens when their convictions are shattered? what if they start questioning humanity and start culling them to prevent vampires to feed on them? so many role playing possibilities. as of this writing, you can only get this source book seperately, however, the 2nd edition of Hunter t...

Hunter: Mortal Remains a good source book to "update" hunter to the God-Machine Chronicles rules, plus how to hunt the newer monsters is a bonus. my only complaint, is that i wish there was a hardcover option. also the updated pdf character sheet comes from this book, just an FYI

Exalted 3rd Edition
by Jens T. J.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 02/08/2021 07:34:11
Exalted 3rd Edition Let me start by saying I love the Exalted setting, and the setting work done in this version is outstanding. However, after having played two campaigns as the storyteller I've finally given up on third edition. The system is overwhelming. Not only does it have a very steep learning curve, but the sheer number of charm (comparable to spells or feats from other systems) and their complexity forced the storyteller into a constant state of information overload. They introduced a "quick" npc system, but the system failed to streamline npc charms in any useful way. Secondly, the system introduced the concept of fluid initiative. Initiative not only serves to determine your turn order, but it is also both a sort of hit point and your damage dice pool... and it is very swingy. It is extremely hard to turn the tables on someone, once you are behind. Further more action economy hits very hard in this edition. While "realistic" the core mechanics favor superior numbers....
