Paradigm Explored: Wyrd and Weft
by Björn n.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 07/14/2020 15:12:53
Paradigm Explored: Wyrd and Weft Alright, so before singing praises hoping for a discount: - this book is a deep-dive into a very specific paradigm tied to a ready-made character and might feel less useful if you're not gonna use norse magick. **Now to praise:** I can work with this. Even if I wasn't planning on a setting/chronicle/character who was into norse magick, this is a great resource for how to tie things together when fleshing out a magick-user, developing their paradigm and deciding on practices and tools. Because that's the thing when your new player asks about Mage. Inevitably, you're going to have to give them *The Talk*, and - me being a better ST than a pedagogue - just the neat little summary on page 9-10 helps a lot with that. I'm pretty confident I could toss this book at any of my new players, and it would clear up a metric ton of questions about how to go about detailing their own character's paradigm, practices and instruments. All in all a well-spent 3 bucks. Al...

The Angel of Mercy
by Waldemar I.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 07/14/2020 06:21:28
The Angel of Mercy A classic adventure! Well, at least the first product made for Mage: The Ascension back in 1993. "The Angel of Mercy" is a scenario that was written when many details in Mage were still unclear and undefined. The plot is around a MacGuffin, and the player characters being hunted by old school Hats and Mirrorshades Technocracy and a satanist neo- Nazi street gang under Nephandi influence. Is the adventure great? It is fine for collectors (scan is OK), and for an evening of a bit of corny fun....

Condition Positive

Condition Positive Are you running a Chronicles game and tired of coming up with Conditions on the fly? This official looking supplement is a set of well written, mechanically interesting benefits to drop into any of the gamelines and comes with a convient index. A solid book for the price.

Order of Reason
by Yui F.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 07/13/2020 09:10:19
Order of Reason doesn't really tell you too much about the order of reason that you wouldn't already know when reading the sorcerer's crusade corebook, but it has some good sub-factions for players and STs to incorporate into their games

Guide to the Traditions
by Yui F.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 07/13/2020 09:08:47
Guide to the Traditions gives a good account of how the traditions work, but some material might be of limited use to an ST/player depending on whether or not they're using the revised metaplot option

Paradigm Explored: Wyrd and Weft

Paradigm Explored: Wyrd and Weft This gives you a lot of value for the price. This is the best breackdown and explanation on the M20 paradigm, practice and instruments. I will recomend this to people if they need help with this. This road map can be ued to help you when making your own characters and NPCs. On top of this you get a very interesting character with a fleshed out backstory, intruments, wonders and some Nordic lore. if this does become a series of works I am excited to see what comes next!

Manual of Exalted Power: Eternals
by Robert N.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 07/12/2020 13:52:28
Manual of Exalted Power: Eternals I generally don't like non-canon Exalted products, but this is well thought out and developed at a nearly professional level. It even fits well into the existing setting, both mechanically and thematically, honestly better than some of the new Exalted types of 3e. I love it!

Dark Eras: Igniting the Fire
by Justin S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 07/12/2020 02:25:26
Dark Eras: Igniting the Fire A lot of enthusiasm went into this supplement, it's a good size, there's a lot of work building up the setting for use with Hunter the Vigil. The first chapter is about the various monsters of the day, and suggests plot hooks for the assorted gamelines and how and why hunters might work on bringing them down. It includes a new group called the Old Ones, with one example one in the Healers, that seem to be the precursor to Cheiron. The second chapter has some compacts or what would be called conspiracies, considering the narrow regional aspect of the game and the lack of things like international communication, most of the groups seem to be precursors of more well-known groups in modern nights. This brings us to my sole problem with the book. The third chapter introduces the first candles, the first groups of hunters of the vigil. The Wolf Cult, followers and blessed by the Pangaean Wolf, who have a really interesting ability, and the Guardians of the Wise, who do a valuable d...

W20 Book of the Wyrm
by Charles S.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 07/08/2020 00:36:50
W20 Book of the Wyrm Oddly, this is far and away the most optimistic World of Darkness book I've read. Sure, the forces of the Wyrm are powerful, even overwhelming. But the recurring theme seems to be "they can be beaten, if people get their act together." Half of them could be solved in minutes if the Garou could work with the Awakened to deal with them, for example. It goes into detail on the Urge Wyrms and the Maeljin Incarnae (including how to destroy them), then talks about Pentex (and all of its internal strife), then there's Tribebook: Black Spiral Dancer (they're a mess, it's almost confusing how they're still around), then other stuff (again, a chaotic mess that shouldn't be able to work together), and finally toys. Overall, it's a great book, and can be adapted to other World of Darkness games as well as Werewolf, and somehow turns out to be optimistic (we can win!) and pessimistic (but we'll never get our shit together) at the same time....

Mage the Awakening 2nd Edition
by Rory H.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 07/07/2020 18:25:50
Mage the Awakening 2nd Edition As with the previous 2nd editions of Chronicles of Darkness games, this is a highly polished effort with improved art direction, excellent rules for magic and by it being a self contained game. Its also notable shifted away from the Atlantis backstory emphasis of the previous edition, which is a welcome change. Notably, this Mage game is only half the size of it's intimidatingly huge cousin, Mage: The Ascension, and will be certainly easier to play for newcomers. It manages this by missing out on much of the more gonzo, philosophical and real world culture referencing material of the former - and may feel a bit bland by comparison for the original game's fans. As a toolkit for running modern magical stories, like those you might find in a Vertigo comic, its a highly polished product, but it's still an obvioulsy fictional world with comic book tropes rather than an exploration of real occult concepts in many respects. Regardless, it's a great addition to the Chro...

The Gates of Damascus
by Jeremy M.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 07/07/2020 15:49:45
The Gates of Damascus The Gates of Damascus breaks new ground for the Dark Ages setting, both historically and geographically.It explores medieval Syria, with two domains, Raqqa and Amman explored in detail. Unlike the essentially Eurocentric perspective of many Dark Ages supplements, it's not written in the manner of a "visitor's guide" but rather with Syria, and characters hailing from Syria, as its focus. While it can't comrehensively explore the multilayered history and culture of so ancient and turbulent a reason, it very effectively conveys a sense of how complex they are, and gives the reader the starting points to look for more information. The book also explores the genesis of the Ikhwan, better known to long-term Masquerade and Dark Ages players as the Web of Knives. For Storytellers looking to set all or part of their chronicles in Syria it contains everything needed "out of the box" - maps, a diverse range of NPCs, political, historical and cultural information...

Gilded Cage
by Kyle B.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 07/02/2020 01:30:29
Gilded Cage I found this to be a very dry read, compared to the other nine or so VtM books I've read. It repeats itself often and makes vague excuses why it can't provide more information/flavor on the topic at hand. That being said, it does cover the many ways vampires obtain influence in the mortal world. I especially liked how it empathesizes how differently the Sabbat operate from the Camarilla. I don't think it mentioned the Anarchs at all. There are quick snippets in most sections stating which clan(s) is most interested in which area of influence. The two sections I found most useful: 1)How to run a business. It's just a quick snippet, but has super simple mechanics. 2)Political Landscape. Again it's just a quick few pages. Provides simple step by step instructions on how to create a web of intrigue. Ties everything together to make an interesting chronicle. Wish the whole book would have been like this! So overall this book did not have to be 113 pages, half t...

Dark Colony (WW2212)

Publisher: White Wolf

Dark Colony (WW2212) I'm very unhappy. I don't criticize the work of the authors but the work of the one who scanned the book. It's a very bad work. A lot of pages are blurred. Some are not even straight. I paid 8,88€. For this price I expected something better. Something professionnal. It's not. It doesn't deserve this price. I'm very disappointed.

200 Black Spiral Dancer Kinfolk

Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 06/30/2020 17:42:29
200 Black Spiral Dancer Kinfolk 200 Black Spiral Kinfolk is another solid contribution to the vault. This product is a useful tool when looking for quick npc with a little personality and background. The book gives us a 200 different character names with about a paragraph of background and personality information for each. The Tabletop Gaming Club found the book useful during their weekly game and recommends this book to storytellers who want to flush out their games with little work. The only issue is that there is a clear difference in the writing style and format of the second 100 characters in the book. The first 100 entries follow the same format as the other kinfolk books while the second set of 100 does not. This sudden change in format was a little jarring, but did not take away from the usability of the book....
