What Do I Know About First Impressions? Scarred lands Creature Collections (5e OGL)

I have many weaknesses when it comes to RPG products, but one thing you will never hear me say is “there are too many monster books.” I love collections of various creatures from which I can draw inspiration. No, I don’t think I’ll ever use every single creature in one of these collections, but having access to them just kind

What DO I Know About First Impressions? The Wagadu Chronicles (OGL 5E+)

A few months back, I saw the preview art for the Wagadu setting, an Afrofantasy setting by Twin Drums. The artwork was beautiful and evocative, so I signed up to get notification when the project went live. Apparently I wasn’t paying attention when I signed up, because the project is even more ambitious than I thought it was. Not only

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Iconic Villains: Non-Player Characters (Star Trek Adventures)

I’m having a ton of fun with my Star Trek Adventures campaign, so I’m looking about just about everything that comes out for the game. It seems like the Enterprise Player Characters release just happened (it did), but now we’ve got another “characters” product, this time called Iconic Villains: Non-Player Characters. This is “kind of” a first impression article, but

What Do I Know About First Impressions? MechWarrior Destiny (Cue System)

When I first started playing RPGs, where you bought your RPG material heavily influenced what games you were exposed to. Dungeons & Dragons made it into toy stores and book stores, and many “second-tier” TSR releases followed D&D into book stores, but some corners of the hobby only existed in specialty stores. The first two RPGs that I played were

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Unearthed Arcana 2020 Subclasses Part 4 (D&D 5e)

Time for another round of first impressions with the release of a new Unearthed Arcana today. Press play on your MP3 of Alice Cooper’s “I Love the Dead,” because that’s kind of the theme of today’s offerings, with two new subclasses that deal with spirits from beyond. In this case, the subclasses are for bards and warlocks. The College of

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Unearthed Arcana: Feats (2020)

Today saw another Unearthed Arcana drop for the first time in a while, and this time around, it’s all about new feats. I’m going to look at all of them individually, but first, I wanted to list all of the feats that are in the document, and I’m going to put a star next to all of the feats that

What Do I Know About First Impressions? The Art of Conan

I mentioned when I did my line overview article on Modiphius’ Conan line that way back when the line started, I purchased the “get all the PDFs” bundle, so I’ve been watching the line progress. I received another PDF, but this was sent to me as a review copy from Modiphius. This product is a little different, because it is

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Mothership Sci-Fi Horror RPG Player’s Survival Guide

I’ve been playing in Sean P. Kelly’s (of Gaming and BS fame) Mothership game on Thursday nights (which you can see here). As we have been playing the game, I realized I had to do a first impression article for this product. I’m going to write this as a first impression because I think, from what I understand, there is

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Numenera Discovery and Destiny Slipcase Edition

This is going to be a first impressions article, because I have not managed to make the time to read both of these books cover to cover, but I did want to address what I have seen so far, and very particularly, what the physical slipcase edition has included with it. As a full disclaimer, I have most of the

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Mythic Odysseys of Theros (D&D 5e)

I had a chance to look through Mythic Odesseys of Theros the last couple of days. This isn’t a full review (and I’ve got away from doing a lot of official WOTC reviews, because they are ubiquitous, and from more talented people), but there is a lot I wanted to mention. This first impression is based on the material released
