  • Quests of Doom – Adventures Worth Winning This massive book clocks in at 312 pages, not including the covers. Of these pages, 1 is reserved for notes, 1 for the editorial, 1 for the ToC and two for the SRD, leaving us with o less than 307 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   But before we dive into the matter at hand, let us first define what this book actually is – a kind of celebration of a series that was nicked in its bloom due to various reasons – I’m, of course, talking about “Demons & Devils” and “Vampires & Liches”, the two module compilations released back in the day by Necromancer Games for 3:X.

  • Dungeon Dressing: Doom Paintings This installment of the Dungeon Dressing line is 13 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement, 2 pages editorial, 1 page ToC/foreword,1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let’s take a look! So…seriously? Doom Paintings? Painting generators seem like an endeavor that is futile from the very get-go, but author Mike Welham has time and again shown his talent for compelling supplements, so what exactly do we get? Well, in case you didn’t know – a doom painting is one that depicts the final judgment, end of days etc. – with a part depicting heaven and another depicting hell. Obviously, most settings don’t feature trademark Christian […]

  • I’ve recently acquired a copy of Rage, the first person shooter developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks. It seemed like a pretty decent line up and I was quite excited to return to a post apocalyptic world. Something, in my opinion – along with zombies and Coca Cola, that never gets old. I spend hours running around the Capital Wasteland of Fallout 3, oogling the scenery, running around, jumping, climbing trees and historical monuments alike and I wouldn’t have minded if Rage was like this, if only to give me a change of scenery that I haven’t explored to the max. At first glance, these two games appear suspiciously similar. You play as a character buried in a hole for the past […]

  • Rage: A New Version of the Old Scene Rage is the new IP from ID Software, a company that has not released a new game in 15 years. Oh, and if you don’t like my usage of Aerosmith lyrics in my title, tough. Anyway, I digress. They have, however, given us gems like Quake, Doom, and Wolfenstein 3D and created the fps genre we all love so much today. That takes us to Rage, the newest installment from Id. I was lucky enough to have a full hour to play Rage at PAX Prime this year. The game blew me away! The cinematic opening shows Earth being struck by an asteroid, which causes the apocalypse. You wake up from a […]
