SotM's Guide to Dying
by Sebastian F.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 12/20/2018 09:54:18
SotM's Guide to Dying I *love* toolkit books like this. Short, sweet, to the point, without need for tons of flowery exposition. I found this short book to be quite helpful. Too often, I personally get a little bogged down by all of the metaphysical elements of Wraith. Granted, these elements are what makes the game more interesting, but in the end, it is about our characters. This book is a refreshing gathering of examples and inspiration. Ideas that might be used to inspire my next character, the next antagonist, or even a full blown storyline. After all...the passions behind why *anyone* becomes a wraith is what drives the whole game. I particularly like the introduction. Sure, we can all sit and brainstorm how a character died and how it affects them. But...having a bit of a "cheatsheet" of origins as they relate to the game can save a few minutes when preparing the next game session or story arc....

Awakenings
by Christian M.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 12/19/2018 10:12:10
Awakenings Very fun! Several strong points, a few constructive criticisms for future releases. Overall it's an imaginative take on a small barony in Baltimore. There's some interesting setting ideas that need to be further fleshed out, but then, it's only a 15 page book for a reasonable introductory price, so that's is not an issue. The author has clearly done his research and has some well defined ideas on this setting. And the setting itself is well chosen, with great potential for further exploration. The adventure is a wonderful little exploration, excellent for setting up a chronicle in the region. It is definitely worth the price for the intro adventure into this setting, and I hope the remainder of the series is as well produced. The detail on the primary encounters is excellent, there's a great little mystery, and a few twists that are definitely fitting in mood and theme. The primary quibble I have with it is overuse of artwork. Odd, yes, considering the nature of ...

Chronicles of Darkness
by Dean H.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 12/18/2018 16:05:06
Chronicles of Darkness I love Chronicles of Darkness Second Edition. In just about every way it is superior to the First Edition (which a lot of fans deemed "New World of Darkness" until rebranding) with one exception. I don't know how to feel about the condition mechanics. I think most people really like them, but I find them a bit cumbersom (from a thought process, not mechanically) and a bit forced. I will explain what I mean. Condtions are basically changes to your character either physically or mentally (and usually temporary) and they affect the game for your character in a mechanical way. A lot of time it is in the form of bonuses or negatives to certain rolls. Resolving these conditions can sometimes result in getting a beat (part of an experience dot), which incentivises the player to take conditions regularily. On the surface this seems like a really neat mechanic and a good way to get players to allow for complications to befall their characters willingly which can lead to interesting st...

To sup upon the city
by DSC T. G. C. _.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 12/17/2018 18:03:13
To sup upon the city Although this work appears to be built for the authors own campaign, the work still is very good. It only really focuses on one area in Gary, indiana, but it captures the feel of the earier editions of Vampire. It details with feeding and humanity, both subjects that are often overlooked in many campaigns. The Tabletop Gaming club recommends this book, for its price its a worthwhile investment.

Enlightened Grimoire

Enlightened Grimoire The Enlightend Grimoire is a well put together reference book, that puts a lot of information in one place. We could say lots of wonderful things about the work, but the bottom line is it just makes it easier to run a Mage campaign. The Tabletop Gaming Club strongly recommends the Enlightened Grimoire to all mage players

Exalted 3rd Edition
by Etienne O.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 12/15/2018 00:27:07
Exalted 3rd Edition I really wanted to love this, but there are just so many choices made in this book that run counter to what I feel makes a good game. And that has disappointed me to no end. I backed it on kickstarter and waited patiently for the follow-up to the first RPG I ever really played. I had hoped for a lighter, more table-friendly game, with a good flow and rules that were more focused on the bigger picture than the details. What works for me: The setting is cool as all heck. Anything that touches the world of creation is awesome. There are little hints and rumors that aren't immediatly explainable, which function great as inspiration for stories and adventure. If anything, the setting part of this book is too short, and more pages should have been assigned to this. What doesn't work for me: The artwork, most of it is dull and uninspired, there is no "freedom" to the art styles, most of it locked by tracing after 3-d models. Some are great, the cover in particular is very cool. The sys...

Beckett’s Vampire Folio 21: Azhi Dahaka
by Stefano d.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 12/14/2018 08:22:55
Beckett’s Vampire Folio 21: Azhi Dahaka A clean and well-detailed view of the four characters introduced in *Azhi Dahaka*. No more, no less, yet a lot of food for thought. But, the main course of this Folio are without doubt the Bogatyri, the bogeymen introduced in the old Tzimisce Clanbooks. This book offers a simple but inclusive description of such creatures to use in chronicles.

VtM Character Sheets [V20/4th Edition] The material is of the highest quality and has a great design, *congratulations for the good work.* In VtM Character Sheets [V20 / 4th Edition], the ENGLISH_A4_Format.rar file contains the spreadsheets of the same VtM Character Sheets [3rd Edition] file, so the spreadsheets of the VtM Character Sheets [V20 / 4th Edition] ENGLISH_A4_Format.rar file are missing

Cheat Sheet for Chronicles of Darkness Rules

Cheat Sheet for Chronicles of Darkness Rules Excellent resource that I consider necessary for STing. If it didn't exist I'd have to make it myself, and mine would not be anywhere near as good. Product is efficient and concise, with page references, and lovely to boot.

Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition
by Todd M.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 12/11/2018 11:42:54
Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition BLUF/TL;WR- If you can stomach the "edgy Orwellian" SJW garbage, and you don't mind the metaplot being even more hard-welded to the rules/releases, then perhaps it's worth a gamble. Would I purchase it again? No, because I don't like fueling idiotic philosophies and isms. Will I purchase future products in this line? I'm not sure, in light of the above, but now I've got yet another digibook as a spawning ground for electronic dust-bunnies. I'll try not to be overly redundant, but to reinforce/reiterate that already stated. 1. Aesthetics: too cluttered. I wish they'd come out with a bare bones/no art version. It's ~uselessly ~pretty. (mixed bag. not a fan of ~post/modernism, and some of the photos scream "fanboy/larp"; in short, they don't jibe with the tone, nor with the setting. Gothic = dark AND light, not just some cartooney/comic bookish, sophomoric black to the point of comedic. Also, such as with the "fashion" illos, it looks more like Shadowrun, than WoD. These vampir...

Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition
by Monica G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 12/10/2018 23:26:57
Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition Vampire: The Masquerade is an RPG that was popular through the 90s and early 2000s, focusing on modern-day vampires and the struggles of their afterlives. Vampiric characters had 'disciplines', which are vampiric powers determined by their membership in a 'clan', a group of vampires who trace their lineage back to the same vampiric sire. A large part of the game centered around the debate amongst vampires whether to silently coexist with humanity, and use their powers to rule from the shadows (the Masquerade--advocated by a group called the Camarilla), or to give into their monsterous, beastial nature and use their vampiric powers to crush humanity and feed off of mortals as if they were cattle (advocated by a group called the Sabbat). In previous incarnations of the game, this conflict drove much of the story. The Sabbat made trouble for the Camarilla, who sought fight off the Sabbat and cover up any sign of supernatural conflict (upholding the Masquerade). This new edition brings us...

Cheat Sheet for Chronicles of Darkness Rules Similar to this creator's Storyteller's Screen, they included some of the main mechanics & systems you might want easy access to during a game. This collection expands upon the ST screen, which provides a nice way to customize my screen based on my needs. Core book (CofD) page numbers included for quick reference. There's a lot of information packed on each page, but it nevertheless reads well. The only thing I'd want added is a summary of Ephemera abilities (Influences, Manifestations, etc.). Here's hoping this creator will make more cheat sheets and screens for some of the splats that are still lacking them!...

Chronicles of Darkness Storyteller Screen

Chronicles of Darkness Storyteller Screen This creator thoughtfully included some of the main mechanics & systems that a storyteller would want on a screen. Core book (CofD) page numbers included for quick reference. The main mechanics included are: actions/dice rolling, beats/XP, breaking points, combat summary, social maneuvering, conditions, and investigations. There's a lot of information packed on each page, but it nevertheless reads well. Glad to finally have an updated CofD ST screen, and I'm hoping this creator will make more for the splats that are still missing theirs! I also purchased the "Cheat Sheet" by the same creator, which provides a nice way to customize my screen based on my needs. Well done!...

W20 Cookbook

W20 Cookbook I have always been a fan of Werewolf the Apocalypse and I love to cook! So when I discovered that there is a Werewolf Cookbook, I had to check it out... I only got the book yesterday and have already made three of the dishes and while I would love to go into detail about the awesome lore associated with each tribe and sing the names and virtues of each recipe, I think I'll leave it to the potential buyers reading this... and let me say, you won't be disappointed!!! **Quick Note** If you're like me and like to have your books in the best condition possible, I strongly suggest that you purchase a second copy for reference only and not to used in the kitchen... the ink tends to smear with apple juices, and I'm sure with other liquids too....
