PrinceofNothingReviews: Ragnarok (d20 3pp); Raise your Horns

It is the end of the week, a big review is coming up, but before that happens, let’s take a break from settings set around rpgs based on the idea of ceaseless struggle against an inevitable doom set in a fantasy setting to review Ragnarok, an Avalanche supplement for D20 set in the pseudo-historical Age … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Ragnarok (d20 3pp); Raise your Horns

[Review] Polaris (All Men are Brothers edition); And if I were gay…

There is a way some rpg-players have used to describe the way an rpg can interact with a human mind. It posits that any rpg has a game component (composed of abstract rules and mechanics and the way they interact with eachother), a simulation component (the way in which those rules mimic reality or are … More [Review] Polaris (All Men are Brothers edition); And if I were gay…

PrinceofNothingReviews: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying 2e Pt. VII; Setting & Conclusion.

In this last installment of this interminable series I will cover the Setting, Bestiary and the sample adventure in the back of the book so you do not accidentally stumble upon it whilst idly flipping through rulebooks in the rpg-section at the ABC and throw up all over the tabletop section. The setting has not … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying 2e Pt. VII; Setting & Conclusion.

PrinceofNothingReviews: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying 2e Pt. VI: Adventure and Madness

This section of the review covers the GM section in WHF2E. The GM section is an odd but very good one, containing fairly terse yet useful guidelines on how to run a game, ideas for adventures, campaigns, describing the tone of Warhammer Fantasy, as well as a very large and impressive section on mental illness … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying 2e Pt. VI: Adventure and Madness

PrinceofNothingReviews: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Pt. V; Do you have a moment to talk about the Lord Crystal Dragon Jesus Christ?

The Religion section in the new game has been handled quite nicely. Entries for gods are expanded from the original, yet not to White Wolf-esque proportions to the point where it gets tiresome, and unnessecary and confusing deities have been stripped out. This section is very humanocentric and even Imperio-centric, which is good since most … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Pt. V; Do you have a moment to talk about the Lord Crystal Dragon Jesus Christ?

PrinceofNothingReviews; Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying v2 Pt. IV; An Age of Daemons and Sorcery

Back from a 10-day hiatus in suprisingly sunny Toronto, your Prince has returned bearing not gifts, but at least a copy of Kane: Darkness Weaves by Karl Edward Wagner, the cherry on what was already a suprisingly sweet pie. Nevertheless, reviewing work awaits. Magic in the 2nd edition has been altered considerably, bringing it more … More PrinceofNothingReviews; Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying v2 Pt. IV; An Age of Daemons and Sorcery

PrinceofNothingReviews: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2e Pt. III; An age of Battle and Death and of the World’s Ending

Warhammer Fantasy is, first and foremost, a setting that revolves around tales of bitter and ultimately hopeless struggle against extinction. It comes as no suprise that much of this struggle takes the form of a literal struggle, with swords and knives and whatnot because medieval violence is both gritty and allows for personal heroism to … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2e Pt. III; An age of Battle and Death and of the World’s Ending

PrinceofNothingReviews: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition Pt. II: Next level Grim-dark shit.

I was to discuss career advancements and the accompanying advanced classess within this post, as well as the newfangled skills and talents mechanics. Advancement has been simplified somewhat, without doing away with the core mechanic. All skills, talents, ability score advancements (+5%) and secondary ability score advancements may be bought for the paltry price of … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition Pt. II: Next level Grim-dark shit.

PrinceofNothingReviews: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition Pt. I; Once more unto the Breach!

I’ve been announcing this bastard for a while now and it is time I get to work. Instead of re-iterating what has already been quite firmly established I shall merely go over each section and discuss the differences between this and the previous edition. Without further adu, let’s simply jump in. If you have not … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition Pt. I; Once more unto the Breach!

PrinceofNothingReviews: World of the Lost (lotfp) Pt. III; Barrier Peaks Redux

Some time needs to be spent mentioning the overly elaborate and almost Byzantine random encounter tables for both inside and outside. It is regretable that most of them are just creatures, with no other details added, but to Chandler’s credit, a FUCKING RANDOM TABLE is added so you can generate complex encounters between multiple parties … More PrinceofNothingReviews: World of the Lost (lotfp) Pt.
