The Adventures of Sam Spade: The Calcutta Trunk Caper
by Eddy W.
Publisher: Nathan and Evan Inc.
Date Added: 03/03/2021 11:59:40
The Adventures of Sam Spade: The Calcutta Trunk Caper An excellent remastering of an original Sam Spade episode. If you're a fan of the original Sam Spade stories, these are more family-friendly than the original detective fiction -- a funnier, breezier version of a noir detective. Still, Sam Spade/the narrator is fun to listen to, and the music and sound effects are excellent. $3 is a bit much for a 25-minute episode, but worth picking up if you're a fan of hardboiled detectives.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: Case of the Dog Who Changed His Mind
by Eddy W.
Publisher: Nathan and Evan Inc.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: Case of the Dog Who Changed His Mind An excellent remastering of a classic episode from 1947 (over 70 years ago!). The Sherlock Holmes of the 1940s was very different from modern interpretations -- John Stanley has much more of the "cozy mystery" feel of Basil Rathbone rather than Jeremy Brett or Benedict Cumberbatch. It also features a pug dog, which made me happy. However, even with the remastering, $3 seems awfully steep for a half-hour episode. Worth a listen if you're a classic Sherlock Holmes fan, especially if it shows up on sale....

Mage The Ascension Tarot
by Danny S.
Publisher: White Wolf

Mage The Ascension Tarot Super happy with these. My old deck got destroyed. The quality of print, if you look really close, isn't quite the same as the originals but that's just me being fussy. And the card weight is slightly closer to a normal playing card than the originals. But again, fussy. As I said I am made up I have this deck back despite these slight criticisms. (the postage to UK is killer so check before you click)

The Windrow-Ravenswood Deck Guidebook
by Jeremy C.
Publisher: Tormented Artifacts
Date Added: 02/25/2021 14:50:07
The Windrow-Ravenswood Deck Guidebook This book has two parts, and therefore, uses. The first part is that it is a guidebook used to interpret the deck of the same name, along with providing dire warnings about it's use. the inclusion of the artwork found on the cards is a nice addition, but for the full experience, one should buy the cards as well. (I disclaim any and all liability for using the deck for divination- if the book's warnings don't stop you, It's unlikely that I will be able to either.) The second part is the story behind the redicovery of the 'Lost' Arcana cards, and the fate of the Archivist that was tasked with finding and recovering them. This story is a brooding, horror tale as told in letters, and it is equal to or better than that of Lovecraft. If you are a fan of horror in the lovecraftian vein, Strange Oddities and Curiousities, then you should purchase this book (and the deck.)...

Stafford Library - Heortling Mythology

Stafford Library - Heortling Mythology Whether you're looking for specific myths for Runequest storytelling or heroquesting or you just want to steep yourself in the deep Gloranthan background, this is a killer buy. About 200 pages of Heortling goodness-everyrthing from the Dawn Ages through the hero wars, very nicely edited and laid out, though with only a few piece of art besided the header that is on most pages. I bought the PDF and loved it enough that I finally tracked down the POD option that is available at Lulu. Would have preferred to buy here, but glad it was available at all, to be honest. ...

When the Ferris Wheel Lights are Dead
by Peter M.
Publisher: Dark Gatekeeper Gaming
Date Added: 02/19/2021 15:24:03
When the Ferris Wheel Lights are Dead I did enjoy this book very much, I like how the staccato short sentences in the first chapter set the scene with quick, brutal strokes - like an artist slashing bright colored oil paint onto a canvas with a palette knife. Such a good story, heartfelt and well told.

Little Fears: The Wolf Pact
by Daxton N.
Publisher: FunSizedGames
Date Added: 02/04/2021 08:04:07
Little Fears: The Wolf Pact Little Fears: The Wolf Pact is Jason Blair's adventure tale in the world of Little Fears, a game that takes a dark look at the things that adults can no longer see. Written for the "young adult" crowd, like RL Stine's Goosebumps, the horror is well penned without being a gorefest. The auhor creates a feeling of isolation and near-hopelessness between the two main characters, and successfully draws the reader into their fear as we follow their trek to save their friends and themselves. As a fan of the game, this story makes a fantastic introduction to the setting: no knowlegde of the game is needed. Without spoilers, The Wolf Pact is a rewarding tale and worth the read. I know fans are looking forward to more work from Jason L. Blair....

Shadowrun: Hell on Water
by William J.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 01/29/2021 01:20:33
Shadowrun: Hell on Water This book is pretty fun. It does a great job at capturing the Sixth World and it was just a straight up fun read. What makes this book so fun to read is our nameless narrator. Whom kind of reminds me of Marcus from Borderlands. A very strange use of metaphors which really helps flavor the book. It also uses a very interesting jumping around narrative style to make it like you're piecing together the story as you read. Something akin to a Catch-22 or Pulp Fiction, where the story isn't told in a linear fashion. I honestly liked it, but it might not be for everyone. The story itself follows a team of runners as they make it through the gauntlet known as the south bridge to Lagos Island. They have to deal with tribal disputes, the undead, magical organizations, and organ leggers while attempting to deliver 3 mysterious packages. That basically captures everything that makes Shadowrun such a great setting. It's not about one thing, but instead about many moving parts that ...

The Art of Conan Sourcebook The Art of Conan Sourcebook is absolutely incredible. I don't play the role playing game, but I have an appreciation of Conan. This book gathers together all of the art work form their RPG and supplements and places it in one book full of just art with a few paragraphs of descritptions here and there to set the scene. Overall, an incredible book.

Achtung! Cthulhu: Tales From The Crucible

Achtung! Cthulhu: Tales From The Crucible I like how this comes with a way to translate much of this to 6th and 7th Edition Call of Cthulhu. This game has great ideas you can use in other horror RPGs. YouTube's "Game Geeks RPG" Game Master Kurt Wiegel brought up in one of his review of "Pulp Cthulhu" that Actung! Cthulhu as already doing what "Pulp Cthulhu" tries to do for the Mythos. Also you get to fight Nazis and isn't that always a good thing?
