RPG Review: Pirates and Plunder (1982)
Playtest Review by Lev Lafayette (3/2): Not really a historical pirate game, despite claims. System can be clunky and limited and rules make an attempt to modularity with an integrated adventure. Actual play tends towards a level of humour, helped by the text.

RPG Review: Soldiers of Pen and Ink (2014)
Capsule Review by kafka (5/5): Players looking for the buzz of an alternative and peculiar locale outside Lovecraft country ?the Spanish Civil War should look into - Soldiers of Pen and Ink. Those who are purists might find some this adventure too pulpy and those who are in the pulp might find the legwork too purist. In my humble opinion, this adventure transverses both worlds giving players a chance to experience both.

RPG Review: Unspeakable Oath Issue 24, July 2014 (2014)
Capsule Review by kafka (4/3): This Unspeakable Oath is a real mixed bag. It features some phenomenal artwork and articles but is brought down by some that are really bad. While it might be the feeling of some of these were hastily written or just simply there were no other articles on hand. Quite frankly, I would have gladly said keep the excellent articles and it would still be worth the price. It does reflect perhaps their success ? that they are attracting relatively lackluster talent ? but please ? next time pass and keep the good stuff. Unspeakable Oath always had a boutique feel to it, stay true to those roots.

Capsule Review by Ben Riggs (3/5): The Dracula Dossier is a tour-de-force by writers working at the top of their game. It is a new height in Pelgrane?s innovative style of campaign which uses a text as the organizing principle of a sandbox, one which may spawn earnest imitators and could over time evolve into its own genre.

It is a wonderfully written and great adventure that can be largely run out of the box. Plenty of room for sandbox and innovative play while keeping everything tightly scripted.
