Hah! The reviewing blitzkrieg continues unabated. Ever onward. England Upturned is an English Civil War sandbox taking place in 1642, after the Thirty Years War. Tensions are mounting but the shit has not yet hit the fan. The author is a secretive individual by the name of Barry Blatt, whom I suspect is something of … More PrinceofNothingReviews: England Upturned (Lotfp); Ambitious historical weird fantasy
I am having a good day and it has been long since my last review, so what better way to cap off the day then with a review of my latest descent into the d20 bubble, Avalanche Style. Pyhthyon and Soesbee teamed up with Gentleman-scholar and Avalanche founder Mike Bennighof to deliver a 191-page campaign … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Celtic Age – Roleplaying the Myths, Heroes and Monsters of the Celts (d20 3pp); Extreme Highschool Barbarian Smackdown
Man, reviewing Avalanche d20-stuff is depressing. All for One (and One for All long official title for a 64 page supplement) was short but just long enough to do what it needed to do but had some weird thematic inconsistencies and niggling issues with equipment, Aztecs was far too short for what it set out to do … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Black Flag – Piracy in the Carribean (d20 3pp); The skeletal structure of a really great game.

Awesome. Aztecs have great potential since are barely present in the western … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Aztecs – Empire of the Dying Sun (D20 3PP); A bucket when you needed a swimming pool.
Avalanche Press was a relatively small publisher during the d20 boom, notorious for its birds-with-their-bobs-out cover art, at times shoddy craftsmanship and its focus on historical/mythical campaign settings for the d20 system. Today we check out All For One & One For All by John R. Phython & F.S Kessler, a 64-page (less if you … More PrinceofNothingReviews: All For One & One For All (d20 3PP); Style over Substance.
