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.
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!
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. III; Barrier Peaks Redux
After a brief hiatus, it is time to complete this endaevour and move on to other, grim-darker pastures. Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay has a sample adventure in the back of the book, meant to kickstart a beginning GM’s campaign and illustrate the mode of play. It has the promising title of the Oldentaller contract, and I … More Review: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1e Pt. VII; Adventure and Summary
We are back with yet another Installment of the modules from the twisted mind of Zacharrov Kowolski, that strange Canadian pervert that sets all our hearts ablaze. Thulian Echoes is an honest to god module and it verges somewhere between meta-narrative brilliance and the nonsensical. I shall attempt to explain. The central conceit of Thulian … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Thulian Echoes (Lotfp); He is back and he’s got a new Trick
The second stand-out Avalanche 64 page campaign setting I’ve come across, Endless Sands takes place in a fantasy world based on Arabian legend and manages to feel new despite coming out far after Al-Quadim. It exemplifies a truth about Campaign settings I have realised in my long journey through the elfgame archives: A good campaign … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Endless Sands (d20 3pp); Al-Quadim with a whiff of Dark Sun
In this coming time of change, fire and blood, when mettle will be tested and where the blueprints of the coming decades are laid out, it is comforting to know that there are still things that can pleasantly suprise a man. Case in point: I, Morded by Avalanche games is the first 64 page campaign … More PrinceofNothingReviews: I, Mordred (d20 3pp); An Avalanche Campaign Setting that does not suck?!?
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
A single, small cut by Michael Curtis made me very happy. It gave me hope. After wading through the entire Raggi section of the Lotfp catalogue one gets tired, as even the good adventures exert a heavy toll on one’s sanity and spirit. Barely kept cognizant on a diet of Avalanche Press supplements, Drizz’t Do’urden … More PrinceofNothingReviews: A single, small cut (Lotfp); Terre des Hommes, Ch. III: L’Avion, p. 60.
Finally, something that is an unqualified, unasterisked success that won’t gross out the kids. We return once again to that most quixotic of all OSR Publishers, Lamentations of the Flame Princess. James Raggi strikes again with an all new all powerful 8 page mini-adventure perfectly suited to rock your PC’s socks off. Like most of … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Tales of the Scarecrow (Lotfp); Short but sweet.
