Age of Sigmar: Soulbound – Role-playing Game Review

Age of Sigmar: Soulbound – Role-playing Game Review 

Big, bold, bombastic, and brutal—Age of Sigmar: Soulbound has swaggered its way onto the RPG scene with well-earned confidence. Players take on the role of larger-than-life heroes (literally, in some cases) at the forefront of the battle between the forces of Order and the hordes of dead, damned and demented foes who oppose them. Immortal […]

Black Void – Role-playing Game Review

Black Void – Role-playing Game Review 

Black Void describes itself as an esoteric RPG. That might set veteran roleplayers to thinking about Unknown Armies or Kult—games set in our world which explore occult symbolism and themes. A better comparison would be Call of Cthulhu by way of Conan the Barbarian and Stargate. Though even that description misses out the Arabian Nights […]

Spire – Role-playing Game Review Part One: Core Rulebook

Spire – Role-playing Game Review Part One: Core Rulebook 

What is Spire? Created by Rowan, Rook and Decard, it’s a weird, dark fantasy RPG about waging a morally grey war of resistance against an oppressive and demented regime. It’s a game of espionage, horror and impossible choices. It’s a bubbling stew of fantasy, steampunk, pulp and sci-fi. Most importantly, it’s bold, bloody and beautiful. […]

Scarred Lands Player’s Guide – Role-playing Game Review

Scarred Lands Player’s Guide – Role-playing Game Review 

The Scarred Lands, Player’s Guide was originally created at White Wolf before Onyx Path Publishing and Nocturnal Media took it over. In a 2016 Kickstarter campaign, Onyx and Nocturnal successfully funded both the Pathfinder and the 5th Edition version, raising over $60,000 to make this book a reality. Thanks to Matt, from Onyx Publishing for […]

Scion RPG 2nd Edition Review – Part One – Scion: Origin

Scion RPG 2nd Edition Review – Part One – Scion: Origin 

Scion is an urban fantasy roleplaying game (RPG) of a very particular sort and one that’s likely to appeal to fans of fantasy fiction. It’s not about secretive societies of seductive vampires and passionate werewolves lurking in the shadows. (Though you could use it for that, at a stretch.) It’s about the children of the […]

Numenera: Role Playing in the Ninth World

Numenera: Role Playing in the Ninth World 

A billion years have passed, and civilisations have risen and fallen leaving evidence of their presence across the world. Wonders that no one can understand; obelisks that float in the sky, creatures that appear from shadows or walk through walls, machines that control the weather, or have uses yet to be discovered. Humans (mostly) are […]

Most often they discuss RPG products that Onyx Path is making or has made. Eddy Web is one of the three as well as being the creator of Pugsteady and the mind […]

Frostgrave and Carnevale – Two Skirmish Wargame Reviews

Frostgrave and Carnevale – Two Skirmish Wargame Reviews 

In the last couple of years, tabletop gaming has become more popular. A lot of people don’t have the space, budget or playing time for vast wargames involving hundreds of models, and smaller-scale, skirmish games have arisen to fill the gap. I thought I’d have a look at two such games: Carnevale, sold by TTCombat, […]
