[Review] Zweihämmer (WHF retroclone) Pt. VII; Other magical shit

Besides wizards, the other major spellcasting profession in Zweihänder, as in the Old Game, is the Priestly class. All major human deities from the Warhammer Fantasy universe are covered in Zweihander aswell, with each being given an alternative name and occasionally gender, with Game of Thrones-esque titles like the Steward and the Winter King replacing … More [Review] Zweihämmer (WHF retroclone) Pt.

[Review] Zweihänder (WFR OSR) Pt. VI; To fight the abyss, one must know it…

Welcome to another exciting installment of the epoch that is the Zweihänder review. This segment shall focus on Arcane Magick in Zweihänder (originally I set out to cover both divine, arcane and miscellanious magic in one post but considering the length I have decided to split them up). Spellcasting in Zweihänder most resembles sorcery in … More [Review] Zweihänder (WFR OSR) Pt. VI; To fight the abyss, one must know it…

[Review] Zweihander (WFRP retroclone) Pt. IV: Skullduggery and kicking people in the Face

It started as any other day. There I was, hunched over my laptop, distilling bootleg whiskey from leftover BigMacs and leaving racist comments on Kate Perry youtube videos when suddenly I heard a great thumping noise from outside, as though some mysterious book-sized object of great density had impacted with startling velocity. I waded through … More [Review] Zweihander (WFRP retroclone) Pt. IV: Skullduggery and kicking people in the Face

[Review] Zweihander (WFRP retroclone) Pt. III; A man needs an occupation

I remember vividly the first time I drank Lipton-ice tea. I was but a boy, and me, my parents and my brother had just finished a long walk through one of Holland’s few remaining natural forests. It was summer and quite hot. On the drive back we came past a promotional event, with some promotor … More [Review] Zweihander (WFRP retroclone) Pt. III; A man needs an occupation

[Review] Zweihander (WFRP retroclone) Pt. II; The anatomy of grim heroics

Character creation in Zweihander is more involved then that of its predecessors, but the number of steps do not widely exceed that of something like Dark Heresy (and in the case of games like Rogue Trader and Only War, might actually be less). If you like your characters fully fleshed out with an abundance of … More [Review] Zweihander (WFRP retroclone) Pt. II; The anatomy of grim heroics

[Review] Zweihander (WFRP retroclone) Pt. I; Introducing…

It is no secret among manly men with giant beards and skull tattoos that Warhammer Fantasy kicks ass. Between its goofy and messily designed but flavourful 1st edition and its stripped down lean-and-mean-but-fuck-you-buy-the-bestiary 2nd edition (and an unnameable 3rd edition where conflict is resolved via playing cards or kissing competitions or something even less hetronormative … More [Review] Zweihander (WFRP retroclone) Pt.

Review: A Question of Gravity (AD&D 3pp); A Stunt Dungeon

A Question of Gravity is an old 3rd party adventure for Advanced Dungeons and Dragons published by Mayfair games under the Role Aids brand, and by semi-clever use of game term they were able to publish material for DnD that was obviously for DnD but not technically/legally so. The history is sort of complex, anyway, … More Review: A Question of Gravity (AD&D 3pp); A Stunt Dungeon

[Review] Doom of Odin – Tales of the Norse Gods (3pp d20); Riddle me this Heimdall…

Ragnarok was a pretty neat concept but only had about 48 pages. In my previous review I griped that it was, in essence, only a seed of a campaign, with neat flavour and some very interesting stripped-down rules but just enough to make it work. Doom of Odin is a sort of supplement to this … More [Review] Doom of Odin – Tales of the Norse Gods (3pp d20); Riddle me this Heimdall…

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

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.
