Podcast Episode – The Boardgame Review Room: Oh no… INVASION!

Oh no… Invasion! is a small coop game by FableSmith and designer Joost Das, the same clever guy who brought us Ortus. This time, far from being a competitive game, is a cooperative one. And one that holds no punches in being difficult to beat. Our planet is being invaded by a number of aliens that come in many shapes and sizes and we have to ally our forces to defeat them. Sharing resources and taking risks to blow the pesky aliens off the sky will take a lot more effort than the whimsical and silly look of the aliens will make you believe. However how does this game play for the first time? We tell you! Hope you enjoy the show and if you want to buy a copy of the game (you probably should…) you can do so here.

RPG Review – Way of the Wicked Book Four: Of Dragons and Princesses

By Endzeitgeist This pdf is 106 pages long, 1 page front cover, 2 pages maps of Talingarde, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving a total of 99 pages of content, so let’s check this out! This being an adventure-review, the following text contains a lot of SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion. Still here? All right! The last adventure had the PCs in a precarious situation – the sacking of the most holy places of Mitran religion can easily be botched and thus, this adventure kicks off with the PCs either fleeing from the Vale with an army on their heels or triumphantly marching from it in charge of their own dark forces. Worse for Cardinal Thorn’s dread masterplan – his third knot, the assassins in charge with dealing with the regent King Markadian failed and were vanquished and his mole in the army is too frightened to assassinate the king. His plan seems to be crumbling – but there are the PCs, aren’t there? These people have been a valuable asset, but they are getting too strong. Thus, Thorn develops a Xanathos gambit that may very well backfire: The king dearly loves his daughter and this is his weakness – if a sufficient threat surfaces in the royal palace, he’ll come to the rescue –...

RPG Review – Behind the Monsters: Omnibus

By Endzeitgeist This massive pdf is 76 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving us with 72 pages of content, so let’s take a look at this massive tome, shall we? Now if you’re not familiar with Tricky Owlbear’s Behind the Monster-series from the 3.X days of old, here’s the idea of the series: Know those bestiary entries? Remember from the days of old the information on habitat, society, history etc. and later, the ecology-articles? Well, behind the monsters essentially takes a look at monsters and provides extensive background information on them, supplemented by crunch for variants and interesting options. Beyond that, we also get information on lore-DCs for the respective critter as well as some tactical advice for dealing with the respective critter, provided in a way that the entry can be shown/read to players. If you’re not familiar with the series as of yet, here’s the news – this one is essentially a compilation of old material, fully updated for PFRPG – so let’s take a look, shall we? Owlbears, what other creature could be possible for Tricky Owlbear Publishing, would be the first in the compilation. We all know about the “A Wizard did it”-background of this notorious creature – here, we actually get a detailed background story that explains the reason WHY Owls and...
