  • The Outer Presence (OSR) This module/system for very rules-light investigative horror clocks in at 45 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 2 pages of editorial/introduction, 2 pages of space for notes, 2 empty pages, 2 pages depicting the Kort’thalis glyph, 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 33 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin this book with character generation, which is pretty simple – we begin with choosing a profession from a list of 20, though adding new ones is heartily encouraged. For purposes of determining cohesion and identity within the world, 10 organizations and 6 possible relationships with said organizations can be found. […]

  • Girls Gone Rogue (OSR) This massive expansion-book for the sleazy space opera RPG Alpha Blue clocks in at 80 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 2 pages of editorial, 2 pages of ToC, 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 72 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   All right, before we dive in: This is designated as Mature Content. It is the expansion book for a rules-light RPG that reproduces the aesthetics of scifi-porn-satires, so if you have a problem with sexuality, dick/vagina/boob-jokes and gender stereotyping for men and women, this may not be for you. While the males and females I played this with considered […]

  • Crimson Dragon Slayer 1.11 This one-hour game-version of Crimson Dragon Slayer clocks in at 11 pages -all content, no frills.   So what is this? Intended for relative novices to the game, this is a stripped down version of the regular Crimson Dragon Slayer-rules, with a different focus – where the regular version features a goofy, over-the-top and awesome metal attitude, this one emphasizes dark science-fantasy as a default assumed genre. The pdf explains the basics of roleplaying and the system, which is ridiculously easy.   The basis for this is VSD6-system: A roll of 1 is a critical failure, a roll of 2 a failure, a roll of 3 mostly failure, 4 = mostly success, 5 = success and […]

  • Alpha Blue (OSR) This massive sourcebook clocks in at 114 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 2 pages of editorial, 3 pages of ToC, 4 pages of note-space, 1 page blank, 1 page Kort’thalis-glyph, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 100 pages of content, so let’s take a peek!   This book was moved ahead in my review-queue due to me receiving a complimentary print copy.   Okay, before we start: This is a satire, a spoof of 70s and 80s cheesy, low budget exploitation-scifi-flicks and aesthetics. Alpha Blue is a space station, where sex addicts were sent to experience experimental treatment techniques – what began as an institution devolved into a space brothel/casino; […]

There are literally more butts in just about any music videos and there is no full-frontal nudity or the like herein. While […]

This book was moved forward in my review-queue due to me receiving a print copy in exchange for an unbiased and critical review.   All right, so, from the get-go, let me make one thing perfectly clear: This is not a module in the traditional sense…or rather, it actually is. What do I mean with this cryptic statement? Basically, this is a wide open sandbox, like some of the best Frog God Games, Lamentations of the Flame Princess or Raging […]

  • Three Swordsmen (OSR) This FREE little pdf clocks in at 6 pages, 1 page editorial, leaving 5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin with a nice introduction to the matter at hand and then are introduced to the Templar Knight. These guys must be lawful and may deflect an amount of damage equal to his level plus the sword’s enhancement, but the decision to deflect the attack must be made before the results of the damage-roll are made known. If the fighter also reconsecrates and reforges his sword in a ceremony, the character may also add his Strength-modifier to the amount of damage deflected.   1/day, he may also sway the undecided, up to character […]

  • The Baleful Sorceror of Tsathag’kha (OSR) This free supplement clocks in at 6 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, so let’s take a look!   We begin this pdf with a one-page introduction of the origin of the class. The baleful sorceror gets d6, may not wear armor and are proficient with daggers, short swords, sickles and scimitars. They may also use poison as a thief of the same level and may rebuke, command or destroy undead as a cleric of the same level. This sorceror learns one spell of a higher level every level, though more power can be gained via trafficking with dreaded Tsathag’Kha, putting that control in the GM’s hands. The sorceror may also try […]

  • How to Game Master Like A Fucking Boss This book clocks in at a total of 124 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages editorial, 1 page (very detailed) index, 1 page back cover, leaving us with a pretty massive 119 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This book was moved on my review-list due to receiving a print-copy for the purpose of writing a critical, unbiased review.   So, this is pretty much a GM’s advice and trick book. I don’t review this type of book too often, and that has a reason: This may sound arrogant, when it certainly isn’t intended to be – I’m a pretty kickass GM. Almost all of my players have […]
