Book of Chantries
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 02/10/2019 21:29:46
Book of Chantries How do you even review a book like this? It's a classic. And yet, it just displays so many directions that the game didn't go in, and some that it did and then backtracked later. Porthos and Voormas having spheres at 6, for instance, has been removed finally in the 20th Anniversary Edition, but this is only the most obvious one. The treatment of the Technocracy is typical of first edition: like they're lying about believing in science and are just barely less evil than the Nephandi. Oh, and my favorite ridiculous bit was that if the Union took Doissetep they could cut the Taditions off from Forces magick, as though the Traditions could do it to the Union right now. But a close second is how often Mages are referred to having "Awakened" each other, like they can just do that. However, overall, it's a classic for a reason: the book has a ton of flavor, numerous story hooks, and I love the point-buy system for building Chantries....

Heirs to the Mountains of Madness

Heirs to the Mountains of  Madness Product Review, Heirs to the Mountains of Madness by Joshua Heath A product for the Mage 20th anniversary line, Heirs to the Mountains of Madness is a well written Jump start. The book sets the situation to get a mage chronicle or story off the ground immediately. It gives reasons not only for tradition cabals to be interested, but other groups like the Desperates or a cell from the Technocracy to have equal interest. This is all covered in a single page of the book. After that the book covers a number of well written npcs, both traditions and Technocrats. This book is exactly what it advertises to be. The conclusion of the events set forward are left up to the Storyteller, which some may find this a determent or even just have a few options of what could play out. But I would like to point out this can be seen as an asset as well, it all depends on the style of the Storyteller at the helm. That all said I would, and likely will, make use of this product. This suppl...

Werewolf: The Apocalypse 20th Anniversary Edition We have 2 major issues with our experience and received project. We purchased the premium color, hard back edition on 1/22, it was shipped 1/28, arrived on 2/1 in a damaged box. there was hole bigger than a golf ball on the side of the shipping box. The book binding and pages were exposed and damage was noticable. Upon opeining the package to asses the damage and the product, the top corner pages and cover (front and back) were damaged. The book cover corner art covering is peeling away from the book. We have had the book for 1 day and the binding has already broken, 1 DAY! We are book collectors and treat our books with kid gloves. A book of this size should always be swen and not glued, especially for the price paid for the product. The other major issue we have is the fact that only select sections of this book are color. The desciption of this product should be accurate and state that only part of the book is color. Honestly, the book is not worth the price you pay, you ...

Spectral Hunger
by Justin S.

Spectral Hunger This is a really cool supplement for a surprisingly low price. I'm not an Ordo Dracul fan, but as someone who plays and STs I can see ample use for the powers here among players and NPC antagonists. That said, the writer points out that to really get use out of this you will need one of the books that has rules for ephemeral entities (absent in Vampire the Requiem 2e). These can be found in Chronicles of Darkness 2e, the second editions of Werewolf the Forsaken, Mage the Awakening, and Promethean the Created, as well as Demon the Descent. The first is Lemurifex which is a full Discipline, anyone can learn once they do a certain deed. 1-5 Discipline abilities, and 2 Devotions and 1 Merit. This Discipline is all about ghosts, and if you were rightfully disappointed with the ghost-oriented Disciplines in first edition, including the abilities of the Dragolescu bloodline, this will definitely be what you want. The power comes at ghosts the way vampires do with humans. They're prey, too...

Clanbook: Tremere - Revised Edition
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 01/31/2019 17:48:51
Clanbook: Tremere - Revised Edition I haven't read any of the other Clanbooks: I'm not much of a Vampire player. So I'm coming at this as a book that is tangentially relevant to Mage. As such, I enjoyed it. The history and structure of the Tremere sections were fascinating, showing how House Tremere fared after separating from the Order of Hermes, and how much knowledge of that has been lost by the rank and file, even if the highest ranks of elders still remember. It was well-written and I enjoyed even the parts that did not fit my person interests. Best of all, it's in epub (easily converted to mobi) and properly laid out with the art to work on an e-reader....

Blood Treachery
by Charles S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 01/30/2019 04:27:03
Blood Treachery Though many other reviews out there are negative and bring up some legitimate point (no mechanics for the failure of magic, Mages not taking full advantage of their abilities, etc) I'm actually positive overall about this book. It was well-written, including the unique approach to the mechanics light chapters of writing it as a play (leading me to wonder if anyone has been strange enough to try to put it on) and the properly punitive mechanics for ghoul mages. It includes several rotes that are not especially tied to dealing with Vampires but are focused on recovering the roots of Hermeticism, and presents a piece of the Hermetic view of the Umbra and Umbrood hierarchies in a reasonable and accessible way. Overall, I find myself thinking of the book as "Tradition Book: Order of Hermes 1.5." This is far from a condemnation, as it hits several points that are not thoroughly covered in either of the two versions of the Tradition Book. If anything, I feel like it could have benefitted f...

Bordeaux by Night - Players Guide
by Arby S.

Bordeaux by Night - Players Guide This is the player's guide to a series of two books, meant to introduce players to the culture and life of the southern French city of Bordeaux, and how to faithfully portray a person who lived their entire life there. It also has a primer on the history, politics and intrigues of the city's Kindred populace, the major power plays, some notables, their known personalities and goals and agendas, with a huge diversity of character worldviews and beliefs, written in an unbiased manner. The book is littered with gorgeous art and excellent art direction. And while it's not really enough to play a game on its own, it's definitely worth a read out of the sheer quality of the content alone. Five stars....

Heirs to the Mountains of Madness
by Emmanuelle N.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 01/26/2019 18:23:48
Heirs to the Mountains of  Madness A very intersting mystery for a Mage story that can be either a one shot or a full blown campaign. It does need assembly to make it work, which is expected considering it is a small jumpstart. I've played Call of Cthulhu for a long time so i was excited for this.. "crossover", but being a fan of the ambiance makes Heirs to the Mountains a little underwhelming; it would very much fit and please someone who likes the idea of Cthulhu / Lovecraft stuff but aren't heavily involved with the Mythos. I enjoyed the character and their motivations, and the general plotline offered. I may very mich adapt the idea to my own campaigns! 9/10...

Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition Book is too big for the cheap binding they use. My group bought 4 books and all for bindings broke. I expected this, so no surprise.

Bordeaux by Night - Players Guide A great city sourcebook which contains a short-and-sweet introduction to French culture as relevant for playing a character in France, a detailed Kindred and mortal history of the city itself, helpful maps and insight into Bordeaux's physical and political geography, as well as a ton of interesting, varied NPCs with their own quirks and flaws, which fit right in with the city's atmosphere and background. To top it off, the book is laid out well and contains so much beautiful, original artwork. I can only recommend picking this up if you are interested in playing a game set in Bordeaux, and I hope the follow up book for storytellers will keep this high level of quality....

Renegades of Mercury: Love's Messengers

Renegades of Mercury: Love's Messengers I don't read or play very much Wraith, as much as I love the entire concept of the game. Perhaps I have not gotten into the game too deply because...it is so alien. Perhaps seems too disconnected from the rest of the World of Darkness. The simple idea conveyed in this small supplement really brings Wraith back "home" to relevance in the Lands of the Living. Whether the idea is used in the Great War setting or any other area of conflict, it brings a powerful theme and relevance to Wraith. It isn't a lot of material, but it presents a solid idea that could "connect" the Wraith game with people/places players like myself can identify with....

Werewolf: The Apocalypse 20th Anniversary Edition

Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 01/23/2019 10:16:25
Werewolf: The Apocalypse 20th Anniversary Edition First off, i really like what they've done with the game. This is the Werewolf I remember and love, and they've done away with the mistakes of the Revised system. The systems are so close to the same that I can still use my old books. Other than updating things for the last 20 years, there are no great surprises here. Given the size of the tome, and the fact that it includes so much, like the other changing breeds, I don't begrudge the price, either for the pdf or the printing. That said, the binding on the Premium book absolutely sucks. I've had it for a bit over a month and the front cover is already separated from the book. Sure, the paper feels nice and it looks beautiful, but the cover shouldn't already be detached. Hell, I've barely used it as I got the pdf at the same time and have been reading that almost exclusively. It pretty well assures I'll never by a printed work by Drivethru in the future. So, buy the PDF and enjoy, don't pay for printing. Hell, take it to Staples ...
