"Science" (but perhaps not really science) once again proves Rapture The End Of Days is prophetically accurate. Astronomers Predict High Likelihood of Zombies in Outer Space www.fearnet.com The two astronomers recently published a study that suggests the possibility of over 2,500 zombie-infested planets, within 326 light years of our solar system.

Laurels

  • HAEL

    "HAEL isn't just another ho-hum fantasy setting – it’s a journey into the heart of war, ambition, and drama! The Orcs won the war against the filthy humans and have mighty Empires. In the wilderness  the untamed Humans, Halflings, and Kirene endure a daily life-and-death struggle to survive. Now add invaders from the stars with exotic technologies and you've got one of most original - and politically complex - settings we've seen for a long time."

  • Rapture: The End of Days

    "I like this book. It feels very much like a theological sci-fi horror, so it achieves everything it sets out to... The system for "Extras" is one of the most interesting ways I've seen to reward players for followers while making them both incredibly useful and expendable."


  • High-Space

    “If you are looking for a game that delivers epic, galaxy-spanning space opera, with rules that keep the action coming at light-speed, then look no further. High Space blends the very best sci-fi tropes with Savage Worlds, giving you freedom to play humans, robots, aliens… even starships!  And the transonic vehicle and space battle rules are simply brilliant.”

RPG Review: Ponyfinder - Campaign Setting (2014)
Capsule Review by Shane O. (5/4): While slightly less than perfect, this book is surprisingly excellent in its unofficial migration of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic over to Pathfinder.

RPG Review: The Dark Eye: Basic Rules (2003)
Capsule Review by Brian Washburn (2/2): The Dark Eye: Basic Rules, seems almost perfectly mis-timed and mis-directed in its 2003 U.S. launch. It's a pity the intriguing setting took a back seat to its vastly over-done rules.

RPG Review: Liberation of the Demon Slayer (2013)
Capsule Review by Christopher Cecil (3/3): Demons, slayers and Snake Men, oh my! A fantasy adventure module billing itself as an old school meat grinder, gleefully thrown into overdrive. There's some sporadic wackiness on the surface, but honestly, once you venture to the lower caverns, the weirdness takes on a whole new glory. Don't take it too seriously, and you could have a blast.

RPG Review: World War Cthulhu (2013)
Capsule Review by kafka (5/5): If you are looking for a game that delves into the murky world of espionage and wartime commandos this is unquestionably your game. If you are considering for playing pulp games with one-dimensional characterization of Nazis/Germans/Russian or French this will not be your game. For this book preserves what is celebrated with Call of Cthulhu investigation with a very gloomy and horrific atmosphere whilst preserving prospects for overdoing it of small squads combating a two front war the war and the Mythos.
