DDEX1-06 The Scroll Thief (5e)

Publisher: Wizards of the Coast

DDEX1-06 The Scroll Thief (5e) This was the first module I ever played in AL. I've played it twice now, and run it once. It's a fantastic adventure, especially for newer players. The detective work can go a lot of ways, and the combat flows well and is well spaced. It's a solid blend of RP and action. And, I know everyone has mentioned it, but, it really is a huge selling point: you get to fight a dragon! Classic D&D feel. The loot is solid, and the story is rewarding. I also personally found the ending to be somewhat of a twist. I never saw it coming, and neither did my players. tldr: Perfect intro to AL play....

DDAL07-05 Whispers in the Dark (5e)

DDAL07-05 Whispers in the Dark (5e) This adventure has a great story, solid riddles, and fun combat. My players also loved the loot, so that's another plus. But, as several people on here have mentioned, the difficulty is pretty hard to nail. My party took a good hour of play time to figure out all the riddles, as they were fairly distracted by the zombie horde. I had to make it VERY clear to them multiple times that they could not fight their way out. That set a fairly difficult tone, which made how easily they destroyed the boss a bit of a curveball. My boss lost the initiative roll, and I didn't add any backup for her, so by her first turn, she was hanging on by a thread. As a new DM, I was slightly disappointed that my boss fight wasn't too climactic, but my players all had a great time playing :) tldr: Super fun adventure, cool riddles, great loot, and do not be afraid to jack up the difficulty....

Spirit of 77 Core Rulebook Full review: [Spirit of 77 review](http://www.enworld.org/forum/content.php?5132-Have-K-
ung-Fu-Fights-With-Bigfoot-In-Spirit-Of-77) Spirit of 77 is a combination of street racers and kung-fu fighters, cross-country road races, and big scores in the big city with a killer '70s soundtrack. If you have ever wanted to cross paths with Bigfoot and punch him right in the face because he’s asking for it, then Spirit of 77 is for you. The DJ (GM) receives great roleplaying advice along with a series of moves they can make. Some are surprising like separate the PCs or capture someone. Each move is meant to add new challenges for the PCs to overcome. They also demonstrate how the designers envisioned Spirit of 77 being played and show how to run the game to achieve that vision. Spirit of 77 is an entire game and setting packed into one book. Players will take part in high octane crazy adventures while listening to the music of the '70s. DJs will enjoy surprise after surprise as they reac...

Summerland Second Edition Full review: [Summerland Second Edition review](http://www.enworld.org/forum/content.php?5276-Drift--
Into-The-Sea-Of-Leaves-With-The-Summerland-RPG) Overnight a vast forest sprang up ancient and full grown. It devastated the works of man. Foreboding and somehow alive, the Sea of Leaves is a wild place permeated by the Call, a siren-song that lures the majority of humans into the woods never to return. Survivors know that tight human connections strongly binding communities together provides resistance to the Call. A small number of people, survivors of terrible trauma, are able to resist the Call to journey between settlements and enter the ruined cities. You are one of these damaged people. You are a Drifter. Drifters have a Trauma scale, numbers of d6s that describes how the event in their past affects the character’s relationship with other people. The aim of the game is to reduce the value to zero, whereupon the character becomes acceptable into what remains of human society. ...

Stars Without Number: Revised Edition (Free Version)
by Matthew S.
Publisher: Sine Nomine Publishing
Date Added: 05/25/2018 20:26:28
Stars Without Number: Revised Edition (Free Version) The revised edition streamlines skills and adds new features such as drones and the new adventurer class. The Sector generator is always a help, allowing GM's to easily create unique settings. Psionics have changed substantially, now having core techniques and more versitile uses. Can't help but weep at the lack of Mindblades though.

Pits & Perils
by Brenton H.
Publisher: Olde House Rules
Date Added: 05/25/2018 19:12:15
Pits & Perils Elegant rules, clearly written. My only issue is with the treasure table--am I supposed to roll for each monster or each group? I don't think it's mentioned. Great OSR-style game.

Tarot Adventures, Book Two: Comet over Echo Rock
by Bill S.
Publisher: Sinopa Publishing LLC
Date Added: 05/25/2018 17:38:43
Tarot Adventures, Book Two: Comet over Echo Rock In particular, I appreciated the notations of some small, but important to the color, things such as, "She doesn’t trade in magical items as she knows she doesn’t know enough about magic to do so." when describing an NPC named Faye. There are other such comments throughout the adventure, and I thought those were indicative of someone who thought through what they were writing. I also found it easy to scale this to meet my specific needs. I would definitely buy another adventure from Mr. Quinton. Your mileage may vary, but well done, Sir! Well done!...

Fen Temple 24" x 24" RPG Encounter Map Great quality image and quite reusable. If you can print it out on a plotter (or take it to a local printing shop and have them do it) and laminate it then it's even better!

Alas Vegas
by Douglass B.
Publisher: Magnum Opus Press
Date Added: 05/25/2018 12:52:48
Alas Vegas I backed this as a Kickstarter, and it took forever to release--but seriously, it was worth every minute of that wait. The mechanics for character development during play are clever and intrinscally thematic while the story is both compelling and mysterious. Honestly, even if you don't intend to play it, the book is worth it as a read.

Spheres Apocrypha: Nature Talents, Fire
by James E.
Publisher: Drop Dead Studios
Date Added: 05/25/2018 12:28:04
Spheres Apocrypha: Nature Talents, Fire **Disclaimer:** I purchased my copy of this product at full price. This is the third entry in the Spheres Apocrypha series, and as the name suggests, it focuses on fire talents for the Nature Sphere. The PDF itself is four pages, two of which are actual content. On first read, some of the talents felt a little like they were leaning into other Spheres. The Dragonlung talent, for example, gives you a breath weapon - and to an extent, that also fits with the Alteration and Destruction spheres. It also makes sense with Nature, though, and I'm not overly bothered by its presence there. Other new talents include things like a big boost to the size category of flames you can create (going up to CL 35, should that be relevant), flying on flames (rather like a Kineticist), and create a path through difficult terrain that allies can use. That's not very good on its own, but the Nature sphere has a lot of battlefield alteration abilities, and it might combo pretty well with other talents. ...

Alas Vegas
by Peter H.
Publisher: Magnum Opus Press
Date Added: 05/25/2018 12:27:30
Alas Vegas I was a kickstarter backer on AV, and though it was a long ride to get here it's absolutely been worth wait, even just to see the process of building it. I'm not hugely creatie myself, and seeing the joys and frustrations of it first hand is always intriguing. The game... well, it's as unusual as you might expect from the brain behind Baron Munchausen. The idea of a tightly scripted RPG like a DVD box set - an RPG with spoilers! - was what first intrigued me, but we've ended up with a ton of fresh new ideas rolled into this: a cycling GM, a unique resolution mechanic, even a chapter written by a bloody magician. A MAGICIAN. What more could you want? I'm having to dance around a lot here, mind, as the less you know about this game going in the better. Just... trust that if you can get a handful friends together for a handful of sessions, the kind of friends who would be tickled by having you read the blurb to them, you're not going to regret picking this up. ...
