Review of ARC: Doom Tabletop RPG

ARC is a rules-light but atmospheric role-playing game. The core of ARC is a doom that can take place on a personal level or plunge the entire world into the abyss. Players take on the roles of heroes that stand against this doom and want to prevent it. The question is whether they are up to the task or the world changes because of their failure.

Review of Mausritter

In Mausritter the players take on the role of little knights in a large and dangerous world. In Mausritter, magic is dangerous, beasts are powerful and the lands are wondrous. We are in a sword and whisker world, although the appearance of the people can change from setting to setting.

Played: Descent into Avernus (DnD 5e)

Descent Into Avernus is a scavenger hunt in the true Railroad sense. It’s less about linear storytelling and more about chasing the story through dungeon crawls.

Tricube Tales is a small generic role-playing game that allows us to create a character in a few minutes and just start playing. The setting or genre is neither predetermined nor in the way.

Isola, a stunning piece of art

Isola is an atmospheric and beautifully illustrated comic by Brenden Fletcher and Karl Kerschl. We learn quite quickly that the Queen of Maar, Olwyn, has been cursed into a tiger and is seeking the land of the dead, Isola, with her faithful companion and leader of the guard, Rook, and there the hope of reversing the curse.

Review of Trophy Dark

Trophy Dark is a horror storytelling game where the players are treasure hunters and set off to a dangerous place (abstractly called the forest, although it can also be a swamp, castle or something else entirely). However, the focus is not on finding treasure (that would be more like Trophy Gold), but on the character’s personal downfall. The game is a play to lose game, where the impending doom, whether death or physical as well as mental change, is in the foreground.

Review of Ten Candles

In Ten Candles, the entire group tells a tragic horror story. A story of hope but also of a world before its end. Why together? Because the players and the game master share the right to tell the story at the table. Why tragic? Because no matter how much hope the characters may have, they all find their end in this story.
