Scion: Titanomachy Review

The spread of Scion 2e books continues to grow! You can check out my previous reviews of Scion: Origin and Scion: Hero (plus more) and the upcoming Scion:Demigod is I’ve already backed on Kickstarter. Today I’m here to talk about the newest book from the game line, all about the enemies of the gods and potential destroyers of worlds: Scion: Titanomachy.

Exploring Eberron Review, Part 2

Today I’m back with more information on Exploring Eberron, the latest 5e Eberron sourcebook created by Keith Baker and a crack group of authors. Last time I skipped through the book focusing on the ancient history of the setting and the ways in which Baker and his team are exploring fascinating corners of Eberron’s past that you never knew you needed.

Golden Sky Stories Review

I’m always on the lookout for new RPGs suitable for kids, and I’m also always looking for RPGs with a different set of assumptions to D&D. Golden Sky Stories is both, a youth-centered RPG where fighting isn’t the focus or even something to expect. It’s a beautiful RPG with some great potential, so let’s dive in and see what it’s about!

Exploring Eberron Review, Part 1

I’m back today with more Eberron action, this time from the brand new Exploring Eberron book produced by setting creator Keith Baker and a host of very talented writers. While Rising From the Last War (the subject of three previous posts) updated the setting to 5e, this book includes many of Baker’s intense and amazing thoughts on the world of Eberron. There’s plenty here for fans new and old so let’s dive in!

Rising From the Last War, Part 3

Keith Baker’s Exploring Eberron is finally out and it’s amazing. I went to start reviewing it and realized I never finished with Rising From the Last War! Part 1 and part 2 went up last fall and then the holidays and then the hell that is 2020 so it got lost in the shuffle. Rather than leave it unfinished I have my conclusion today and then next time we’ll start in on Exploring Eberron. In the meantime, let’s look at some treasure and monsters!

Good Society: Expanded Acquaintances

I haven’t talked about Good Society in a while but it remains one of my favorite games on the market. It’s so wonderfully written and easily lines up with the genre. There’s more to offer, though, and Storybrewers’ Expanded Acquaintances book with many different additions to the game.

Klingon Empire Core Rulebook Review, Part 2

Back again with more Klingon action! I covered the first half of the book in Part 1, then a deep dive into Klingon Houses in a second post. We’re going to finish up the review today with a look at the equipment of Klingon characters, the GM’s side of things, and then some of the adventures in the book.

Klingon Great Houses

Today we’re back with another review of the Klingon Empire Core Rulebook, looking deeply into the section on creating and running a Great House of the Klingon Empire. This is such an important part of the book and a change from a Federation game that I wanted to give it its own post.

Klingon Empire Core Rulebook Review, Part 1

So last week, Modiphius surprised the Star Trek Adventures community with a brand new core rulebook! Periodically gaming companies will release new core books with mechanical tweaks and the same fluff or a little extra. This is the opposite, though: mechanically identical but designed to be played with Klingon crews!

Arcana Academy Review

I’m here today with a review! Been a while since we did one of those but there’s a lot of talk about alternatives to Dungeons & Dragons following some much-deserved criticism of the company and game. If you like magic but want something more homey, friendly, and inclusive, consider the game I’m here to talk about today: Arcana Academy.
