Delta Quadrant Review, Part 2

I’m back with the second half of my Delta Quadrant sourcebook review. Last time I talked about the information chapter and the species of the Delta Quadrant. Today, I’m continuing with the starships and antagonists you’ll find there. Spoiler alert: there are a lot of threats here, and a lot of them are Borg.

Top Five Scion Community Content

The second edition of Scion is a great game and the Community Content on DriveThruRPG is pretty awesome. I’ve collected a few of the products and every one so far has had some awesome stuff to add. Out of everything I’ve looked through, though, here are the top five that I’d recommend you start with.

Bite Marks Review

Since first seeing the Kickstarter for Bite Marks by Black Armada, I’ve been intrigued in figuring out exactly what this game is about. It’s werewolves, certainly, but geared more towards pack dynamics than the usual tropes. Bite Marks is now available for preorder at the link above, and if you’re considering it then you might be having the same questions. Read on to find out a little more about what you can expect!

Pride, Prejudice, and Practical Magic Review

A lot of people are celebrating holidays this week, so there’s no better time to review the magical supplement for Good Society. While Sense, Sensibility, & Swordsmanship explored combat and duels in regency storytelling, Pride, Prejudice, & Practical Magic looks at Georgian-era tales of sorcery and mystery in the vein of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell or Shades of Milk and Honey. Get ready for social climbing and magical cottages!

Review of the Revised Cypher System Rulebook

A while ago Monte Cook Games came out with a revised version of the Cypher System Rulebook and I’ve been taking my time going through it. As always it’s a beautiful product, but does it actual improve the game! The answer is a qualified yes, but read on to see for yourself.

Pigsmoke Review

Pigsmoke is a Powered by the Apocalypse game that… well frankly that I didn’t understand reading the blurbs. It looked intriguing and I kept seeing it suggested, but I also found it impossible to pin down even digging into it a little bit. If you’re in that boat, or if this review is the first time you’ve heard of Pigsmoke but you’re willing to stick around, then allow me to say why you should check this game out.

Sense, Sensibility, & Swordsmanship Review

When I reviewed the regency-era RPG Good Society, I was pretty complementary. One thing I didn’t get into at the time, though, is that Storybrewers have a whole wonderful series of expansions planned for the game that stretch and explore what it can be. Today I’m taking a look at the swashbuckling expansion of flashing blades and masked identities: Sense, Sensibility, & Swordsmanship.

Rising From the Last War Review, Part 2

Alright, we’re back! So last time we looked in depth at the character creation portions of the book and found them interesting but mostly updated versions of what’s in the Wayfinder’s Guide. That’s just the first third of the book, though. Today we’re going to be looking at the setting information and what it can offer to new and veteran players in Eberron.
