Outgunned
by Jonas [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/26/2024 14:14:51

Great for fast paced action adventures, but as the "Action flicks" supplement shows it has a broader scope than that. If you want to play period drama or clashing kingdoms, with whole kingdoms as characters, then maybe choose FATE. In basically any other case, the Director's cut system helps you tell great, entertaining stories

Memento Mori - Codex Gigas
by Austin [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/29/2024 12:05:52

I was disappointed by this supplement.

To start, the game itself is 5 stars, no question, created the best rpg experiences I have ever had. Buy the game!

But this supplement really did not add much value. I get that it is not a mechanically deep game, but the bestiary really does not add much at all beyond 2 stats (health and difficulty) that anyone with any amount of rpg experience (or the ability to learn from the monsters provided in the core book) would have no trouble coming up with (heck, before buying the book just using the quickstart I created a couple of encounters with comparable complexity to anything in this book).

More interesting are the plants and minerals (which saying plants and minerals are more interesting than monsters kind of says what I thought about the monsters), which is a place I would give the game designers credit in how unique the focus is and on what it does to the worldbuilding.

But even those you are not going to get much use out of unless you have players that are interested in being an apothecary or craftsman and are willing to read the book themselves.

Not a badly made book, but one with disappointingly little use in game.

But again, the game itself is 10/10 perfection!

Outgunned - Action Flicks
by GD [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/11/2024 06:22:52

A "must-have" addition if you're playing Outgunned! Not only does the book manage to capture the essence of the "flicks" it portrays, it's also a treasure trove of examples for those looking to tweak the game to their tastes (read: setting). Just borrow what you like in each genre to make up your own! I mean, Ghost Hunters + Great Powers/Midnight Wars + Killing Aliens = Alan Wake, no? I mean, we all know we shouldn't cross the flicks, but...

Outgunned
by GD [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/11/2024 06:05:29

Outgunned is one of the smartest RPGs I've ever played. If you're looking for a system that doesn't impede storytelling without sacrificing the rules, and that requires little prep, then Outgunned is probably for you. The whole book is an homage to what action heroes used to be: a celebration of decency, empowerment, and gallantry (to paraphrase John McTiernan). The first and foremost rule of the game is "don't let the rules bully you", and that on top of a system that really favours bold moves and crazy stunts guarantees you'll leave the table with stars in your eyes. May I suggest you get your hands on some movie scores now? John Barry. Jerry Goldsmith. David Arnold...

Household - A Saga of the Fragile Peace
by Lucas [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/26/2024 17:24:38

This book is everything a GM and their players could have asked for. First of all it is important to notice that the adventures and adventure outlines revolve around the pregen characters, but not in a bad way. Instead of being adventures that are dependent on a certain character being central to the story, the adventures are told via the eyes of said characters. This is to say that they are written imagining that the pregen characters are there but still leave space for any GM to change the setting, the facts, the characters, anything they wish for (after all, the pregen characters don't really have the whole story). There is even a small section on each of the adventure outlines that state characters that could or could not be in a city during a certain adventure. So if you are on the fence about how limited the adventures can be, here is how much they are limited: they simply aren't. Any of the adventures can accommodate player character or changes and there will be no work at all for the GM (it just takes reading and crossing out pregen names from your reading). More on that, the 6 full adventures and the 40 adventure outlines are following different stories that can form the bones of campaigns. The analytical index on page 208 is key for that, in which you will find where in the book certain key elements that are recurrent for adventures will show up, and those recurrent elements being central to a certain number of those adventures are exactly what ware forming campaigns in each chapter of the timeline of events. It is safe to say that both the 6 detailed adventures and the 40 adventure outlines can give any table a LOT to work with, being for one-shots or for campaigns (my favorite is the whole Argo mythology). And it is worth noting that the 24 character pregens are not just the character sheets, this being part of another purchase, I think. What the book gives are details on the characteristics, level up path suggestions and my favorite part, the detailed life story of said character. There are paragraphs for each character that will tell you their motivations, life, fears, hopes, etc, that really helps to fill up this world with even more wonder than the core book was already showing. One day me and my players will finish a whole Argo campaign for sure!

Household
by Lucas [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/26/2024 17:04:35

This rpg is amazing! . The setting is the first thing that caught my eye, as the interesting premise of having little people using a house as the entire world. And the authors have thought about everything! The sizes are not making sense at a first glance? The Domain Contract is in the book. How do they know of the elements if they live in the house? The Outhold is in the book. How did this world begin? The whole story is in the book. . The parts that I like the most are the historical analysis made by a writer/character that talks to the audience (he even tells you how to play the rpg) and the art. The art is amazing! Daniela Giubellini remains an absolute master of her own craft. . The rules are very good as well, this is a rpg that lets the narrative be more open and some of the mechanical rolls are tangled with how the narrative works (for instance, an ability can state that X will happen when you do Y instead of saying X will happen when you get a certain amount on the die, and this lets the people play it out instead of the numbers). . The dice pool is a very interesting matching D6 faces system and the way it is used in varied and interesting.

I can safely say that I will be playing Household for years to come!

I'm about to start an Outgunned campaign, and the more I examine the game the more I love it's design and feel. This is the kind of TTRPG I wish I'd written myself: The mechanics are relatively simple, highly playable and capture a sense of action and urgency. Mostly, Outgunned is just plain fun. I have a suspicion it might become my new favourite RPG.

The System is very good at Bringing the tension to the table. If you want to be in a gun fight while driving the car on a cliff and suddenly have forgotten your extra pistol mag, and now you have to jump on an enemy helicopter to fight bad guys with your fists...this game is for you! At first I was sceptic because I was thinking that you can only play Adrenaline Action Movie based games...BUT this game can be anything! Investigation? sure! Fantasy? No problem! (you will need Action Flickers book) Only advice I can give when you are playing: Don`t hold back! If you want epic - BE EPIC!

Memento Mori - Quickstart Guide
by Raúl [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/05/2024 19:29:37

This game looks amazing and I feel quite lucky the people of Two Little Mice has decided to publish it outside Italy. The crowdfounding campaign is planned to launch at late-January on Backerkit and I wouldn't miss it if I were you: https://www.backerkit.com/call_to_action/bc091828-cc71-40d9-af27-6009677ec443/landing The setting feels like a cocktail between Kult: Divinity Lost and Aquelarre (this one, for those not familiarized with it, it's an spanish game set in Dark Ages where the myths and folklore creatures are real). Memento Mori describes a hidden reality where all kind of dark creatures and powers inhabit, only accessible by those corrupted by the Black Plague and cursed with The Mark. Such sickness gives you a tainted power that, sooner than later, will consumpt your body and your very Soul. Will you be able to fulfill your Dream before it's too late? Remember you will die...

Memento Mori - Quickstart Guide
by John [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/30/2023 06:02:18

I enjoy ttrpgs with dark settings and themes. From what I've read so far of the Quickstart, it reminds me equally of elements of Wraith the Oblivion and Vampire the Masquerade. I'm looking forward to seeing the completed version and plan on backing it.

Two Little Mice always pour so much love and attention into their products, and Outgunned is no exception. The system works so well for quick punchy action and adventure! Your players will love creating their characters using the roles and tropes, and the fun definitely won't stop there. Once you get the hang of the system (and this doesn't take long), GMing it is very intuitive. I'm not great at improvisation, but something about the genre and certainly the good game design makes Outgunned very conducive to flying along with the action! Embrace the cheesy action movie one-liners and I guarantee your whole table will have an absolute blast.

Household
by Renate [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/13/2023 23:37:22

Household is awesome! The artwork is stunning, the writing is wonderfully engaging and very well translated from Italian, and it is simply fun! I adore the setting, which supports quite a few different types of stories with ease. You can certainly take a very whimsical approach of course, or dive deep into the political tensions of the Household and play a darker game. Or if mystery and magic is more your thing, you could explore the various contracts with enigmatic Forces. In any case, the system is a lot of fun, and easy to learn! There's something about finding matches on the dice rolls that is just joyful :)
