Mörk Borg English

Publisher: Free League Publishing

Mörk Borg English Let's see what MÖRK BORG is. First of all, let's say a few things about its creators. The author and game designer of the game is Pelle Nilsson, known for his work in the Swedish horror rpg Bark Witch (Barkhäxan), while the illustrator of the game is Johan Nohr, who contributed to the graphic design of the dark fantasy rpg Symbaroum. It is also noteworthy to mention the fact that MÖRK BORG made a successful kickstarter campaign in 2019, where it was funded in less than an hour. The game was released in 2020 through Free League Publishing (Fria Ligan). MÖRK BORG, which translates as "Dark Castle" from Swedish, is an OSR (Old School Revival) rpg, that is, it tries to capture the feeling of the rpgs of the 70's and 80's, giving more basis to the imagination and atmosphere than to rules. On the contrary, the most popular rpgs, even in their latest versions, have too many rules to watch out for. So, as the people from Free League rightly put it, MÖRK BORG is &...

Sorcerer: Paths of Power
by Elijah D.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 03/04/2021 17:16:25
Sorcerer: Paths of Power Sorcerer : Paths of Power is the definitive treatment of hedge/ linear magic in the Owod . clocking in at 164 or so pages ( Sorcerer revised is 130 pages ) ,It builds on, clarifies , and updates the source material to the standard of the 20th anniversary iteration of the rules . It also provides one of the best explanations of focus i have yet to read . This may be my all time favorite purchases from the Storytellers vault: its one of the works that just screams for a POD release. Charles Siegel does good work .This is his best yet . Buy This !!...

Lost Ship: A Survival Game
by Penncy P.
Publisher: W.M. Akers

Lost Ship: A Survival Game I bought this game a LONG time ago during the kickstarter phase. I've printed out a few copies, and today I finally got to sit down and actually play a game. I will say that the first game you play, you should really play along with the instructions. Just as you read the instructions, play through the rounds with them. By the 3rd leap, all I needed was the quick reference guide, but that first leap I had to read the instructions quite a few times. This is a great game if you feel like sitting down and spending some time with a fictional crew. It would be a great way - I imagine - to draft a module for any space opera RPG you might be GMing. Lots of replayability. First game I made it home in 3 leaps. Would have liked to experience more of the anomalies and just the game overall, so I'll definately be drafting up another ship soon and playing another game....

Whitehack Third Edition

Date Added: 03/04/2021 14:48:35
Whitehack Third Edition This was the OSR ruleset that *clicked* for me, and will facilitate my table's conversion from D&D 5E to running things more OSR style. As a DM I can now easily port almost anything and any adventure/module into my setting with minimal fiddling and the emergent character creation rewards creativity in a way I haven't seen before. Combat is fast while remaining tactical and as a GM/referree, I'm more empowered to say YES to player character concepts rather than steering them towards a concept that's more viable. I look foward to seeing what my table does with their new freedom....

Of Predators and Prey: The Hunters Hunted II Anthology
by Björn L.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 03/04/2021 13:46:06
Of Predators and Prey: The Hunters Hunted II Anthology # **Hunter or hunted? - a Mephisto review** **Of Predators and Prey** **Of Predators and Prey **has been released as a companion short story collection to the ***Hunters hunted II*** sourcebook for ***Vampire V20***. A total of nine stories are dedicated to the theme of vampire hunters and, as the title suggests, play with the question of who is the hunter and who is the hunted. Thus, sometimes vampires meet surprisingly well-prepared hunters, sometimes unsuspecting humans stumble into misfortune, and sometimes the line blurs as to who the real monsters are. Thus, the stories cover a wide spectrum of hunters, sometimes ordinary humans who stumble into the vampire menace, and sometimes professionals who are totally dedicated to the hunt. Just as varied are the vampires they must face. In most of these hunts, the outcome is uncertain. The stories are varied, surprising, and exciting and offer what one expects from short stories: entertainment with a few surprises. However, those who e...

The Making of the Art of Children of the Revolution
by Björn L.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 03/04/2021 13:42:34
The Making of the Art of Children of the Revolution # **Just a making of - a Mephisto review** **The Making of the Art of Children of the Revolution.** Even though the term art appears in the title, this volume is not a typical artbook, but focuses on the "making of" aspect. As such, the book is comparatively text-heavy. In addition to the sketches and stages of development to the finished results of some of the illustrations, sorted by illustrator, one finds the email conversations in the exchange between art director and illustrator. In this respect, the book could not really appeal to me. While the sketches' development is interesting, the book focuses more on the intermediate stages than the final results. While it's interesting to get a glimpse into the discussion about the motifs, the collection of emails - in the typical colloquial form (including various typos) - may be authentic, but it couldn't captivate me. I was more convinced by the approach of other artbooks to the ***World of Darkness*** - pers...

W20 Art of Werewolf the Apocalypse

Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 03/04/2021 13:40:05
W20 Art of Werewolf the Apocalypse # **Glimpses of the Werewolf's Apocalypse - a Mephisto review** **The Art of Werewolf the Apocalypse** Part of the product line of anniversary editions to the ***World of Darkness*** are several artbooks. Subtitled *A Visual Guide to Werewolf 20th Anniversary Edition*, this book gives an impression of the world of werewolves. Divided into six chapters, the book introduces key aspects of the Garou world: transformation, their role as defenders of Gaia, the three central powers of Wyrm, Weaver and Wyld, and the Umbra. In this book, the images are the main focus; the texts are only short explanations of the subject and the mentioning of the illustrator. Unlike other artbooks, this one is not about the process of creating the illustrations but primarily about the graphic representation of the Garou's world in selected illustrations. As expected, a wide range of styles can be found here, but what all the images have in common is that they depict the werewolves' struggle aga...

W20 Art of Changing Breeds: A Visual Guide to the Fera

Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 03/04/2021 13:38:06
W20 Art of Changing Breeds: A Visual Guide to the Fera # **The art of Fera - a Mephisto review** **The Art of Changing Breeds - A visual Guide to Fera** Several art books have been published for the ***World of Darkness*** roleplaying games' anniversary editions, each with a slightly different focus and approach. For the graphic companion book to Changing Breeds, the subtitle sums up the approach well: *A visual guide to the Fera* (the other shapeshifters beyond werewolves). After the introduction, the book works its way along the various Fera types, and the author, Mike Chaney, provides some insights on the choice of illustrators. In doing so, he also juxtaposes the briefing information the artists received with the results, comments on the artists' selections, provides little anecdotes and offers insights into the approach to the various Fera. Through this and some illustrations from older books, the reader also learns how the presentation has changed over the 20 years leading up to the anniversary edition. At the heart of th...

[French] Guide pratique de Glamour

[French] Guide pratique de Glamour Une joie que de voir enfin **en français** un ouvrage sur les lunars, qui en plus d'être intéressant ne manque pas d'humour. Une ode à la voie Lunar avec toutes ces (apparentes?) contradictions internes. J'y ai pris autant de plaisir à la lecture qu'à mes relectures de Pavis ou d'Ardoth. Malgré son titre, le guide pratique ne se cantonne pas à une description de Glamour et de sa région, on y trouve aussi une présentation de l'Empire, du culte de l'Empereur Rouge, du gouvernement lunar, de la justice, de nombreuses informations pour donner corps à l'Empire et sa culture. Bref du bel ouvrage et j'ai hâte de lire Citoyens de l'Empire!...

Feats of Prowess

Publisher: Ulisses Spiele
Date Added: 03/04/2021 12:46:42
Feats of Prowess Are you looking for more perks for your Storm Knight, without all the flash and sizzle of spells or pulp powers, miracles or psionics? Do you want a hero who's just really, really good at something more or less "normal"? Feats of Prowess offers over two dozen such perks, grouped by several attribute- and skill-related themes, described below. This isn't an official rulebook, so check that your GM is cool with allowing such perks. They're likely to want to review your favorites, and may disallow them or require some change. I'll state up front that I think most of these perks are well balanced; only three seem overly powerful, and I get into how as I describe them. The *Centre of Attention* perk group gives your Charismatic character even more of that je-ne-sais-quoi. Six perks here make you more irresistible and memorable, better able to make/have friends or get information from passersby, or at Beta clearance, to seduce or charm your unsuspecting target...

Whispers in the Well

Publisher: JDStirling
Date Added: 03/04/2021 11:56:34
Whispers in the Well First off, based on the quality of the adventure, the art and the fun my players and I had playing it, it certainly deserves the five stars, before we come to the "but" part of this sentence, let me list what I liked, loved and changed for this adventure. The setting: 7/10 I love the "SPHERE", it is evocative and hints at a bigger world while also allowing this adventure to fit into basically any campaign AND work as a plothook for further shenanigans in the same world if the party survives. The infected are beautifully scary, the fungus otherworldly and amazingly creative and the adventure is a great fit for anything from action to horror to comedy, depending on how it is run. So, why not 10/10, you ask? Well, see the "the changes" section. The combat: 10/10 The encounters with the infected are fun, flavorful and the "pip" mechanic can me for some eviiil suprises. The final encounter can be increadibly deadly and hard but its also fun and offe...

Stingers & Spores: The Leaping Jaws Stingers and Spores is a fantastic RPG setting. It gives the players and the gm so much leeway to be creative and approach role playing in new and interesting ways. IcI cannot recommend it highly enough.
