Review: Star Trek Adventures Core Book

Review: Star Trek Adventures Core Book

For today’s review I am taking an opportunity to cover something that has been sitting on my shelf for a couple months now. Unlike a lot of the books there, this one has seen a lot of use. I bought this when I was talking to one of my groups about Star Trek. We thought it would be fun to play in the Star Trek universe, and they are the friends I would be able to easily do that with…

Review: Trash Mob Paper Miniatures

Good evening everyone! Tonight we have the first review of 2018 and it features not an RPG or supplement, but a tool that you can use at your table.

Many people use miniatures whether they are plastic and pre-painted or metal hand painted ones. Today’s review is about…

Resources For Every GM: New Years 2017-2018

Welcome to the first full article of the year! Today I want to continue a tradition of looking at the games I have, and some that I don’t, and highlight my top picks for the coming year. Before we get into that, let’s talk about last year’s picks. What blows my mind is that my top play agains were never played again. Not a single one.

Review: Predation

Today I have a review of a game that I was very excited for when I first heard about it. Well, it is more of a setting, but it is the one that got me into the Cypher System by Monte Cook Games. That setting is Predation by Shanna Germain and it is freaking awesome. To start let’s discuss a little about the system because I haven’t addressed it directly yet on the blog. Some of you may recognize the…

Review: We Hunt Bugs

Review: We Hunt Bugs

Good evening everyone! Tonight I have something I am very glad to get back to: a majorly indie RPG. For a number of reviews lately, I have been looking at indie developers who have made a variety of things. Tiles sets, adventures, and more. I have also reviewed a handful of RPGs, but most of these are from slightly larger developers like Magpie Games. Tonight I am happy to get back to an RPG made by a much smaller developer….

Review: Psionics RPG

Review: Psionics RPG

It is a little later than I wanted to have the review out, but I am happy to finally do so! End Transmission Games produced this game and it utilizes a similar system to Splinter. If that name is familiar to you, that’s because we reviewed Splinter earlier this year and if you want to check it out head to this page. It was a ton of fun and if it catches your interest then head here! This time around…
