Orrinyath’s Guide to Dragons: Review

Orrinyath’s Guide to Dinosaurs is the final in this series of Chamomile’s guides to everything. This is the guidebook to Dragons, obviously, but also sorcerer’s and even more Kaiju. I’m using a hard copy for the review with screenshots cropped from the pdf (with permission). You can pick one up at Drivethrough or itch, inContinue reading “Orrinyath’s Guide to Dragons: Review”

Overlight: Review

Occasionally a tabletop role playing game will appear out of nowhere and immediately distance itself from its peers. Today‚Äôs review, Overlight, is perhaps the quintessential example of unconventional fantasy. It has been sitting on the back burner of my review schedule for some time, yet never out of mind. Today is the day to getContinue reading “Overlight: Review”

Alien the Roleplaying Game Review

When you think of horror and role-playing games, I bet one of the first thoughts that come to mind center around the likes of cosmic horror, made popular by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. Titles like Call of Cthulhu have ascended from cult status to nearly the gold standard of horror RPGs despite being aContinue reading “Alien the Roleplaying Game Review”

BattleTech A Time of War Review

While talking to a friend not too long ago, the subject of BattleTech came up and I was reminded of a particular TTRPG book called BattleTech A Time of War. Even though this edition has been surpassed by another book called MechWarrior Destiny, I find the original fascinating. After borrowing a copy, I decided toContinue reading “BattleTech A Time of War Review”

Ozaka’s Guide to Legions: Review

Ozaka’s Guide to Legions is the tenth of Chamomile’s guides to everything. I have high hopes for this one for a lot of reasons. Chief among them, I played the titular Ozaka in a campaign. Secondly, and probably more importantly, its focus is around things I’m obviously interested in, “Big” races, skirmish battles, cohorts andContinue reading “Ozaka’s Guide to Legions: Review”

Caspar’s Guide to Elementals: Review

Caspar’s Guide to Elementals is the ninth of Chamomile’s guides to everything. This zine focusses on elementals, obviously, but also the elemental adjacent creatures you see in games. Think Genies, Giants, and the like. I’m working off a hard copy for the review with screenshots cropped from the pdf (with permission). You can pick oneContinue reading “Caspar’s Guide to Elementals: Review”

Chamomile Has Illustrations

Chamomile, that guy whose books I often review, has done something pretty awesome. When I was originally getting into publishing stuff, the biggest drawback was a lack of easily accessible art. A lot of this blog uses Pexels free art, and a lot of my published stuff uses public domain art or the D&D BeyondContinue reading “Chamomile Has Illustrations”
