Werewolf the Savage Age: Volume 1
by Navin W.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 09/24/2019 11:26:57
Werewolf the Savage Age: Volume 1 Well written and lovingly researched. I was particularly impressed with the scientific and accurate examination of 'Stone Age' creatures, climate, and human civilization right up to the Holocene. This book is useful for anyone running a game or story set in the period, regardless of whether they're playing vampire.

Chaos Factor
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 09/22/2019 02:55:53
Chaos Factor This was a bad book. It might well be the worst Mage book. I've heard rumors that it was written over the course of three days, and it shows. It shows badly. In addition to a few structural reasons it was terrible, such as the soft racism displayed towards Mexico City, I'm just going to focus on individual, localized failings. For one, the book needed some basic fact-checking and editing. It couldn't even be consistent within paragraphs. For example, if Mexico City lies in a valley of 600 square miles and has 20,000,000 people, then it's population density is 33,333 people per square mile. The book says 250, in the same paragraph as the other numbers. Note: none of the numbers are actually correct for Mexico City, either now or in 1993. Also, on page 7, it states a rough number of werewolves in the city and then says "no one knows for certain just how many werewolves live in the city." The book simply cannot even manage internal consistency. The roles of the Aztec gods are quite ...

Tribebook: Naghaluu

Tribebook: Naghaluu Really enjoyed this book. Good addition to the history of the World of Darkness. Interesting to read about those who are similar to Garou yet not them. Good mission for them also, the purging and controlling of wyld places. Makes sense for those ancient times to have too much wyld. A tragic story for these not-quite-Garou, punished for looking like Garou. I fully plan to introduce some of these gifts, fetishes and lore into my game. Maybe it's time for long slumbering spirits to awaken.

Tradition Book: Verbena (1st)
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 09/16/2019 04:04:22
Tradition Book: Verbena (1st) Oddly for White Wolf books, although there are typos and layout issues, they're strictly confined to a couple of sections, suggesting that the book had last minute changes post-editing. The book is largely ok, though it has the big flaw that it consistently refers to the Burning Times, an event that did not happen. The Inquisition targeted secret Jews and Muslims in Christian lands, as well as Christian heretics, not pagans. One of the things that worked well for it was that there was a group of apprentices rather than a single one (though there were issues there, focused around the Burning Times discussions) and the Mythic Threads were a good inclusion, though they are mostly subsumed into Reality Zones and Focus in modern Mage. Overall, a decent book, but nothing truly essential for Mage....

Unique Nosferatu Character Photos and Art
by Jeron T.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 09/15/2019 22:56:41
Unique Nosferatu Character Photos and Art This is literally 1 piece of art and a bunch of pictures of some fairly good cosplay. This is likely my fault for misunderstanding what the product is (I was under the impression that this was a book of Nosferatu art meant to inspire creativity in people playing Nosferatu characters), but, besides the art which isn't bad, this isn't something that wouldn't just as easily be found through a 3 minute Google search. If that's something you're into and want to support, good for you! It's just not at all what I thought I was getting or what I was looking for. ...

Loom of Fate
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 09/12/2019 15:47:08
Loom of Fate While it is common to find good stories told poorly, this is the opposite, a mediocre story that is told well (in many respects). It structured in a very mutable way that in some sense proves that you CAN write a canned story for Mage. On the other hand, the story itself is lackluster at best, with Marauders treated as a generic group and in this case with a motorcycle gang of identical marauders who have no trouble working together and seem to be more motivated by pursuing the Wyld than by their mental illness, whatever it may be, a strange plot involving turning an Orphan into a Pattern Spider, and a random piece at the end indicating that it crosses over with Werewolf. Overall, it's not the worst Mage book, and there's something charming about the sheer unsubtlety of names like "Norna Weaver" for someone with a big Destiny who will become a Spider. However, it also faces a lot of traditional early Mage book problems: the Technocracy doesn't make particular sense (why is the Syndi...

Verona By Night

Verona By Night Verona by Night details the so called City of Love. But as protrayed in this book, for Kindred it's known as the City of Hate. This book describes a city ruled my anarchs, although these anarchs live by their own set of traditions, which in many ways seem much more restrictive than those of the camarilla. The DSC Gaming Club enjoyed Verona by Night, we used the city in our campaign and the inhabitants attitudes towards outsides made for great tension in our game. We strongly recommend that Storytellers consider using this setting book in their own worlds....

World of Darkness Solo Adventures

Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 09/11/2019 14:51:21
World of Darkness Solo Adventures World of Darkness Solo Adventures gives us a set of rules and reference materials in order to play World of Darkness games by yourself. It introduces a mechanic called the oracle which allows you help set the scence, by answering yes or no questions. It provides tables for answering open ended questions. Along with mechanics, it provides tips for how to solo-role play and how to use improvisation to keep your story moving forward. The Tabletop Gaming Club experimented with these rules and concepts. Most of the members reported back to enjoying the scenarios they played out using the rules. Although, we don't think solo play will ever replace group play, there are times that you have no else to play with, and these rules make playing a game on your own possible and enjoyable. ...

Clanbook: Matango

Publisher: White Wolf

Clanbook: Matango Clanbook Matango introduces us to a new bloodline nicknamed the Spores. The Spores or Matango are undead creatures fused with supernatural fungi that eventually comsume the bodies of these undead monstrosities. This supernatural fungi known as the blood mold is source of the bloodlines unique discipline Mycoidae. These creatures as hidieous as they are, tend to want nothing more than to left alone. The DSC Gaming Club really enjoyed introducing one of these unique vampires into their campaign. The uniqueness of the concept made for an interesting NPC for the character to interact with. The gaming club strongly recommends introding one of these unique creatures of the night into your own World of Darkness game....

Dharma Book: Thrashing Dragons
by Sensible C.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 09/11/2019 13:54:41
Dharma Book: Thrashing Dragons This is a great product for anyone that wants to role play a Creature of the Night that must experience just about everything to become enlightened. It isn't for the faint of heart though, as one is required to put on the mask of the beast and use the beast's intuition, since why would a dragon be given claws unless it's supposed to rend flesh? The Thrashing Dragons are a Yang aspected Dharma, one of the few that actively conceive and raise Dhampyrs, encouraged to use drugs, sex, violence, and even try a semester or two to bear the plague, all in the name of going to the Hundred Clouds Court. If you want to experience a Character that's down to perform the most heinous of activities, while you the Player is like, “WTF!?!”, this is the product for you. **Manga: Dreams of the Dragon:** I like this manga/comic, since it doesn't focus on overt sex and violence, but is a sad tale about multiple suicide, and is very subtle on the horror. The trip to Kakuri Yomi is really interesting, and ...

Paradox: The Brainstorming
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 09/10/2019 02:06:38
Paradox: The Brainstorming The absolute nicest thing to say is that this is quite a list of possible effects. Beyond that, though, it badly needs editing and is very, very clearly translated from a non-English language (references to Quiet as "Silence" for example). It openly acknowledges that many of the effects are "funny" and "may not be appropriate for your game." As for the flaws...they're all over the place. "Permanent hiccup" and "Paraplegic" and "Lethal Temperature" are all treated as the same (maximum!) severity, and the grammar rapidly becomes a barrier ("sneeze permanent" could perhaps mean "constantly sneezing forever" but it's unclear). The scaling is also strange, like "intense beep in the ears" grows to "head explodes" and "his eyes have different colours" goes to "strange hair colour" to "strange skin colour" (which all make sense as a scaling of a single problem) then suddenly "he vomit rainbows' [sic] and "he becomes a unicorn with strange colours" which...come right out of nowhere. Some ...

Paper Priests
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 09/10/2019 01:41:55
Paper Priests A sort of amalgamation of some qualities of the New World Order and the Wu Lung, this supplement describes a Craft that works through beaurocracy. Though a bit disorganized and plagued with typos and essentially no layout, this is a Craft that can function and be used to throw the New World Order and Wu Lung into contrast: too mystic for the former and too technomagical for the latter. With an strong editing pass (to iron out some inconsistencies as well as clean up the text itself) and a layout that isn't just black text on white background, this could be a very good addition to Mage....
