Laurels

  • HAEL

    "HAEL isn't just another ho-hum fantasy setting – it’s a journey into the heart of war, ambition, and drama! The Orcs won the war against the filthy humans and have mighty Empires. In the wilderness  the untamed Humans, Halflings, and Kirene endure a daily life-and-death struggle to survive. Now add invaders from the stars with exotic technologies and you've got one of most original - and politically complex - settings we've seen for a long time."

  • Rapture: The End of Days

    "I like this book. It feels very much like a theological sci-fi horror, so it achieves everything it sets out to... The system for "Extras" is one of the most interesting ways I've seen to reward players for followers while making them both incredibly useful and expendable."


  • High-Space

    “If you are looking for a game that delivers epic, galaxy-spanning space opera, with rules that keep the action coming at light-speed, then look no further. High Space blends the very best sci-fi tropes with Savage Worlds, giving you freedom to play humans, robots, aliens… even starships!  And the transonic vehicle and space battle rules are simply brilliant.”

RPG Review: Never Unprepared (2012)
Playtest Review by Lev Lafayette (4/3): Well organised and attractive book on session preparation. Useful for those who are relatively new to session preparation, less useful to others with some omissions and not a good content-to-page-count ratio.

Card Game Review: Jane Austen's Matchmaker (2014)
Playtest Review by Andrew Peregrine (4/5): This masterful game is simple enough for casual gamers to enjoy and tactical enough for hard core gamers to get into as well. It will appeal to Jane Austen fans as much as gamers, but you need not know the books to enjoy it. It is rare to find a game that ticks every box as well as this one.

RPG Review: Achtung! Cthulhu Investigator's Guide (2013)
Capsule Review by kafka (4/5): This is a new addition to the Cthulhu story. World War II and pulp games have long been a tradition in CoC gamesthey are usually dark and gritty affairs. This is a players handbook-type book that brings a pulp sensibility to the game. If pulp is your flavor and wanting to set things in around World War II that combines the best elements of Savage Worlds a fairly realistic depiction of a weird war.

RPG Review: Atlantis: The Second Age (2014)
Capsule Review by Stephen Delear (5/5): A swords & sorcery game with heavy pulp influences. Atlantis: The Second Age offers simple character creation and rules that can be easily explained at a table where only the GM has read the core book. This is an excellent game for quick campaign inspired by the Conan stories or 1980s fantasy movies. Notably, Atlantis: The Second Age tends to take a more a post-colonial view of the fall of empire than other games in the genre.
