What Do I Know About Reviews? Assault on the Fuhrer Train (Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20)

I’ve reviewed a few of the Achtung! Cthulhu adventures that have come out so far. Most of them have been shorter one-shot products with pre-generated characters, with some of them coming out before the full system and referencing the Quick Start rules. These have been PDF only releases that skip around in the timeline of World War II. While previous

What Do I Know About Reviews? Star Trek Discovery Season 1 Player Characters (Star Trek Adventures)

In recent years, we’ve seen a lot more “micro releases” coming from RPG companies, where short, PDF only supplements come out for a game system. Shadow of the Demon Lord did this at an amazing pace when the system was first released, and Modiphius continues to take advantage of this style of publishing with its various 2d20 releases. Today, we’re

What Do I Know About Reviews? Upsetting the Balance (Star Trek Adventures 2d20)

Ever since the Klingon core rulebook came out for Star Trek Adventures, I’ve been kind of fascinated with the concept of trying to keep a story feeling like Star Trek, while still presenting it from the point of view of the Klingon Empire. I enjoyed the previous Klingon mission, The Sleeping Beast, because the adventure is about protecting a Klingon

What Do I Know About Reviews? Shackleton Expanse Campaign Guide (Star Trek Adventures)

Way back when Star Trek Adventures was ramping up, the organized play campaign that Modiphius started specifically mentioned the Shackleton Expanse, a region of space between the Klingon Empire and the Romulans. This region wasn’t canonically detailed and was specifically created for development in RPG products. The Star Trek Adventures core rulebook mentioned the region but didn’t go into great

What Do I Know About Reviews? IDW Year Five Tie-In (Star Trek Adventures)

When a property has lots of different media presentation, some of which “count” and some of which don’t, I enjoy the opportunity to use the storylines from those “non-canon” works as a framework for RPG scenarios. For example, when I was running a Star Wars Age of Rebellion campaign, I used the Black Fleet Crisis as a jumping off point

What Do I Know About Reviews? Seventh Inning Slaughter (Achtung Cthulhu 2d20)

It’s August, so it’s the perfect time to look at an adventure set on the Fourth of July! Fine, I may be running behind on some of the reviews and first impressions I wanted to do last month. Bear with me. The full version of Achtung! Cthulhu 2d20 from Modiphius hasn’t yet come out, but I’ve already looked at several

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Star Trek Adventures Mission Briefs 001-003

It’s been a while since I visited the RPG version of the Federation, so I thought I’d take a look at a few products that are available on DriveThruRPG for the Star Trek Adventures Roleplaying Game. All of the supplements I’m looking at today are available for free, so that skews the math when it comes to deciding if they

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Achtung! Cthulhu (2d20)

Over the last few months, Modiphius has sent me a few releases for its upcoming Achtung! Cthulhu line. The initial one is the Achtung! Cthulhu Quickstart rules, and the two subsequent releases have been the Operation Vanguard and Under the Gun scenarios. Now that I’ve had a little bit of time to digest them, I wanted to put out a

What Do I Know About Reviews? The Sleeping Beast (Star Trek Adventures)

Today’s review is going to be a little strange, because it’s a review of a pack in of another product. I’m looking at the adventure included with the Klingon GM Screen, which, at the time of this writing, is only available as part of the GM Screen bundle, either in PDF or physical form. As far as GM Screens go,
