Free RPG Day: A Nightmare at Hill Manor (WoD)

Free RPG Day: A Nightmare at Hill Manor (WoD)
At 64 pages in length, this is a tome for a freebie! When I first picked it up, I thought I had two copies in my hand because of the thickness and weight. When I realized that it was a single offering from White Wolf, I was quite happy to have it in my pile ...

Free RPG Day: Under the Rose (Exalted)

Free RPG Day: Under the Rose (Exalted)
Wow. This Free RPG Day adventure for the Exalted system by White Wolf jumps right into the adventure and keeps on running. I was a little taken aback by this development as I was expecting some form of introduction to the game, the system, the setting or the general feel of the game system. None ...

Free RPG Day: Final Sanction (Deathwatch)

Free RPG Day: Final Sanction (Deathwatch)
This book is set in the Warhammer 40k world of the Dark Imperium vs. the even Darker Hordes of Evil… or something like that. It’s based off of the premise that everyone in the party is an elite Space Marine that has been chosen to enter the ranks of Deathwatch. You may be thinking that ...

Free RPG Day: Dungeon Crawl Classics

Free RPG Day: Dungeon Crawl Classics
The stylistic settings of this DCC production really brings me back to the early days of role playing, but with a better twist. In the “olden days” we’d move from room to room killing off whatever random critter the GM had stocked in the room and collecting whatever treasure he had deemed necessary for the ...

Free RPG Day: Prime Directive

Free RPG Day: Prime Directive
When I saw “GURPS 4e” in the top-left corner of this offering, I got very excited. Finally! Something from Steve Jackson Games. Alas, it was not to be. This used stat blocks from GURPS and the PD20 Modern systems, but did not include any explanation of the rules or systems. This really disappointed me in ...

Free RPG Day: A Day Late, A Shilling Short (WFRP)

Free RPG Day: A Day Late, A Shilling Short (WFRP)
Where to start with this one? The production value of this fifteen page booklet is incredibly high, but that’s fairly normal for a Games Workshop release. Great artwork, great layout, legible usage of fonts and text coloring all can be found here. That’s just about where the good stuff comes to a halt. For a ...

Free RPG Day: Castles & Crusades

Free RPG Day: Castles & Crusades
Holy small print, Batman! The font used in the C&C Free RPG Day book had to be 6 point or smaller. Wow, tngss was hard to read. However, I understand why they did it. There was a ton of information packed into 17 pages. The book starts with character creation and go through all of ...

Free RPG Day: The Waking Dead (AFMBE)

Free RPG Day: The Waking Dead (AFMBE)
The Waking Dead offering from All Flesh Must By Eaten by Eden Studios came in a slightly smaller booklet than the rest of the Free RPG Day books, but that’s OK. I rarely judge a book by its cover (or size.) This book starts an intro to the game, setting and available archtypes that covers ...

Free RPG Day: Arcanis

Free RPG Day: Arcanis
Before I start in on this review, I want to send a notice to every other Free RPG Day entrant in the future: This is the way to do a freebie. Ok. With that out of the way, let’s dive into the review. The first ten pages of the book detail the basic rules of ...

Free RPG Day: Aspect

Free RPG Day: Aspect
I looked around the book and the workmanship put into the graphics on the cover (inside and out) and the back cover (inside and out) was promising. It appeared to me that the insides book was laid out with color printing in mind, but to save money (Hey! It’s a freebie, after all) the inside ...
