Early Peek: No Salvation for Witches

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Rafael Chandler’s work, what with my posts about the Teratic Tome and Lasus Naturae (which I’m really looking forward to getting, Rafael tells me it’s on target for release on schedule). I was recently sent a preliminary copy of No Salvation for Witches, a 64-page adventure (A5 format, roughly […]

Review: Eureka (from Engine Publishing)

I’m always on the lookout for adventure ideas, and in 2010 Engine Publishing (the publishing arm of Gnome Stew) released Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots to Inspire Game Masters. This is a good book to have, and I’ve got the physical book on my list of books to buy. This is a tricky review for me to […]

Neoplastic Press or Nerd-Crush, You Decide

If you like old school and you like freakishly scary and horrifying monsters, BUY THIS BOOK! A few weeks ago Rafael Chandler posted a picture to Google+ of […]

Review: Blood & Treasure Players Tome

John Stater of The Land of Nod (I know the hostname is ‘matt-landofnod’, I don’t ask questions about these things) wrote a book. Possibly more than one, but it’s only one that I’m going to talk about today. Blood & Treasure Players Tome is pretty close to being what I wanted from the AD&D first […]

Review: Never Unprepared

I received my copy of Never Unprepared: The Complete Game Master’s Guide to Session Prep by Phil Veccione on Friday.  I read it over the next couple of evenings (perhaps two hours total). Conclusion: A very good addition to my bookshelf. My background is quite similar to Phil’s.  I’ve been gaming going on thirty years, […]

I was asked to review Dream Machine Productions‘ mini-adventure, The Complex of Zombies.
