Venger is many things. Prolific and quality releases certainly are on that list of things. I seem to have fallen behind on some of his releases, as I hadn't even realized that Player's Handbook Like A Fucking Boss was a thing. Well, it is. It seems to be a good thing.
This is a grab-bag of fantasy goodies for use with O5R roleplaying games. That means everything from Basic D&D, AD&D, all the various retro-clones, systems similar but not identical (like Crimson Dragon Slayer), and 5th edition.
Primarily, Player's Handbook like a Fucking Boss is meant for players (duh, just look at the title). Contained within these occasionally dark, humorous, gonzo, Lovecraftian, high, and low fantasy pages are useful character suggestions, awesome bonuses, radical deeds, sneaky skills, random tables, XP sweeteners, life-lines, and get out of jail free cards that will hopefully bring balance to the force (but will most likely just spread untold chaos and evil throughout the galaxy).
If dying seems too easy (as it should be), these tools could save your miserable, gutter and dungeon strewn life! If you love bards, get this. If you hate bards with an unnatural purplish passion, then you really need to get this!Alright, I had to look at what Venger offered for Bards. Yes, they are a weakness of mine and something I think AD&D 2e handled pretty well.
Ah, low fantasy bards. Basically, thieves that can con, use their instruments as weapons and other low fantasy stuff. It needs some fleshing out, but there is some gold in his thoughts. I may just run with this.
Anyway, there are lots of valuable ideas within these pages. Don't try to use it all. Just find the pieces that work for you and run with it.
Did I mention that art is very good to amazing in quality? Venger never fails on the art side of things. Ever.
