Mini Review: Loviatar 5 and Scrollworks 1

Alright, I'm not really reviewing Scollworks Volume I Issue 1, but I came across it as I cleaned out my old desk (renovations never seem to end) and as it's Christian's first RPG fanzine that I know of, I thought I'd give it a mention along with Christian's latest.

Loviatar #5 has an amazing cover.  When your main article is Hex 001, this cover is the perfect match.  Well done!

As for Hex 001 itself, I'm very interested to see where this goes.  It's a really nice starter area with hints of things beyond the hex itself.  This would make a very nice ongoing feature (hint) building off of previous hexes.

It's been ages since I've opened a GURPS book that wasn't Discworld.  So the GURPS article took me a few moments to refresh my memories of the system, but in truth, the article could have been systemless and worked nearly as well. The set up (fluff if you will) could easily fit any modern age RPG.

Shamble is a short WoD piece for a "Walking Dead" inspired zombie.  Again, well done and is easily adaptable to other role playing systems.

Great as always.  Love mail in my mailbox that isn' junk or a bill ;)


  1. Huge hug to Christian for having his hard work called fluff!

  2. Look at that! Scrollworks #1! I think that you and I are the only two people on the planet - well, maybe Matt Borselli - who have a copy of that. Sweet!

    I'm glad you liked #5. I think I am going to go ahead and see if I can make a hex crawl work. I have no idea if I am doing it "right" but I am doing it in a way that makes sense to me. :)

    Rock on, brother.

  3. I meant no disrespect with my anti-fluffery comment. Have a great holiday and thanks for the kind review of Seal the Rift!
