The first official (second actual) Weekend Buyback at the Tavern. This week's offerings are a smorgasbord. Actually, I expect every weekend will be offering a smorgasbord. Remember, Buybacks were free when I posted them...
First up is Somnium Mundus from Terra-Sol Games. Nearly 30 pages of adventure for your Traveller game. I don't think I've played Traveller since my early college years, but I've always loved the system (and the system withing a system of character generation).
Next is Into the Star, another Traveller product from Terra-Sol Games. 30 odd pages of optional rules. No idea how well this conforms to the Mongoose Traveller rules. Let me know.
Neverwhere from Postmortem Studios. I'm a damn huge Neil Gaiman fan, ever since Sandman Issue 1. Damn good stuff. Of course, I just found this game in the midst of a large number of other products, so I haven't had a chance to see how close it hues to the book. Four 5 Star reviews on RPGNow tho out of four reviews.
Last Buyback for the weekend is The Boarding House at Arkham Street from Three Fourteen Games. Billed as a system-less horror adventure, it is pretty close to Basic Roleplaying / CoC compatible. Decent layout and an excellent price (and nice reviews on RPGNow) but this in a must download situation, especially if you are thinking of running a Horror game.
Back to the random thought process tomorrow, Happy Hour on Wednesday ;)
