CENTURION: Legionaries of Rome now available at Amazon and Drive Thru RPG.
Ideology of Madness: Ungraded review
Fraser’s favourite part: “I love this game. It is an easy to master system that captures the feel of playing within the roman army.”

“John” at Good Reads: 4/5 Stars
Fraser’s favourite part: “. . . it was an enjoyable read, and with the help of the examples I think I know how to run a game using it. Now I’m looking forward to doing so.”

Gamer Nation: Ungraded review
Fraser’s favourite part: “If you’re looking for an RPG to run with little work in creating an adventure, this game is great! It also makes for an enjoyable history lesson.”

SWORD NOIR: A Role-Playing Game of Hardboiled Sword & Sorcery is available at Amazon and Drive Thru RPG.
The Most Unread Blog On The Internet. EVER: Ungraded review

Featured Review at Drive Thru RPG: 5/5 Stars

FOR SIMPLE COIN: Four Tales of Sword Noir now available at Amazon and Drive Thru RPG.
Periklis at Good Reads: 4/5 Stars
Fraser’s favourite part: “Very enjoyable, well-written, Sword & Sorcery tales, in the vein of Fritz Leiber’s Lankhmar stories.”

KISS My AXE: Thirteen Warriors and an Angel of Death now available at Drive Thru RPG.
The Most Unread Blog On The Internet. EVER: Ungraded review
Fraser’s Favourite Part: “A very cool follow-up to Sword Noir, . . .”

RPG Gamer: The Saving Throw: 4
Fraser’s Favourite Part: “This might be my favourite action oriented game since Feng-Shui.”

RAID On ASHKASHEM now available at RPG Now.
d20 Zines. Final Grade: C+
Fraser’s favourite part: “Raid on Askhashem (sic) does a good job of creating a scenario that could very easily occur in today?s world. With much of today?s struggles centering on terrorism, the players could immerse themselves in such an adventure.”

GameWyrd. Reviewer’s Rating: 6/10
Fraser’s favourite part: “Ah yes, the map. We’ve actual aerial photographs marked up with various objectives. This is another attempt to get that realism. I’ve seen this work and seen this fail badly. I’m not sure what the pit traps are but Sword’s Edge Publishing manage to make it work for Raid on Ashkashem.”

Silven Crossroads. Highest score, good options & adaptability. Lowest score, subpar organization.
Fraser’s favourite part: “Also, the writers (sic) pay a lot of attention to detail; for instance, they (sic) detail the contents of rooms exhaustively. The base, at least to me, made sense and felt lived-in.”

the QALASHAR DEVICE now available at RPG Now.
d20 Zines Final Grade: C
Fraser’s favourite part: “I think this series of adventures would be best used as a filler period between campaigns, or if the players were just wanting a night of shooting terrorists.”
Just like a landing, any review I can walk away from . . .😉

Gaming Report Final Grade: 3.5/5
Fraser’s favourite part: “Overall, this is an interesting mission for a military d20 Modern campaign with nice options for connecting to the other adventures of the series.”

GameWyrd. Reviewer’s Rating: 6/10
Fraser’s favourite part: “It’s dead simple. If you want a no-fx d20 military adventure and buy adventures then cough up the peanuts for this download.”

Silven Crossroads. Highest score, very Good organization. Lowest score, average options & adaptability
Fraser’s favourite part: “Fraser Ronald has spent a lot of time getting the details and feel of the base down, including when the men eat, what they keep in their closets, and what their coffee cups look like. Like the base in Raid on Ashkashem, there’s a lived-in feel to it, especially given small touches such as a TV playing a South American soap opera dubbed into Russian with Tajik subtitles.”

The KHORFORJAN GAMBIT now available at RPG Now.
d20 Zines Final Grade: C (or B+, depending on the scale used, see review)
Fraser’s favourite part: “The Khorforjan Gambit is practically a sourcebook in itself; containing more than enough material to create a dangerous, disorienting adventure in the world of Middle-East politics and warfare. This much credible detail about the motivations and tactics of the various groups vying to establish peace or power in Albenistan can easily lead to some tense interactions at the gaming table.”

Gaming Report Final Grade: 4.5/5
Fraser’s favourite part: “The Khorforjan Gambit offers an interesting, well-arranged plot of investigation and action under a deadly timeline, backed with a fair selection of detailed support material. Overall, this is a superb module, . . . while the main plot and character descriptions are perfect.”

CANADA’S COMBINED SECURITY RECONNAISSANCE SECTION now available from RPG Now.
EN World. Reviewer’s Rating: 4 Stars
Fraser’s favourite part: “This is a nice product as it is both well written with little rules. This could easily be used in other modern games that are not d20.”
