Superteam Handbook Review

Back today with a look at the newest supplement for Mutants & Masterminds, the Superteam Handbook. This book sets you up to play a team of heroes all working together, which technically is something that could be done with the base game. This book, though, purports to set you up with everything you need to have an awesome superteam.

Esper Genesis is a science-fiction D&D 5e game that I’ve been excited to see grow better and better since its launch. They have a series of adventures out and another on the way, plus pregenerated characters and a bunch of great digital resources.

There are so many things in life that people just “go along with” but if you want a truly great gaming table then you have to be purposeful in how you approach things.

I’m back with another look at the Fateforge setting, this time with the magical sourcebok called Grimoire.

Alpha Quadrant Review

I’ve been looking forward to this one, folks. For many science-fiction settings the geography of the setting isn’t so critical but the quadrants of Star Trek are as integral as transporters and phasers. The Alpha Quadrant sourcebook is a great opportunity to delve into that setting, then, and this awesome sourcebook.

I’m back with more about the fantastic 5e setting of Fateforge by Studio Agate. Last time I talked about character species and before that I gave a generalized introduction to the setting. Today, I want to talk about the other parts of the character equation: background and class.
