Dead Ball (Blood Bowl)
Dead Ball (Blood Bowl)

4.0 out of 5 stars Puns puns and more puns, 8 Jan. 2006
This is the second book written about the ultra violent game of blood bowl and it's more of the same. This isn't a book you can really pick up with having read the first one, you miss out too much information about the game and the characters which are not included in this book.
During a terrible match many of the bad bay hackers, the team our hero plays for, are killed leaving a huge gap in the teams line up. After recruiting the team travels to the distant land of Albion to hone their skills. Albion is the Warhammer worlds version or Britain and as you read this you'll find more puns than you can shake a large sticky object at, check out the new members of the team (Bavid Deckham). As amusing as this is it does start to wear a little thin after a while but with more action than the first your gridiron urges should be satisfied

4.0 out of 5 stars Tell me a story, 4 Jan. 2005
With the new version of White Wolf's world of darkness being released we were all promised he chance to play humans mixed up in the crazy world for once. This is your cahnce to play an average Joe in the world of darkness. The book has a set of stories to run your players through all based (what a suprise) around hauntings.But this is the world of darkness so you don't just get any old hauntings, oh no.Ghost Towns where the town is the ghost, violent sexual deviants,murdering trees(!?!?) it's all here.As you should all know by now this 'aint for kids, you need to be of a mature mindset to deal with some of the stuff in here.What you get is a set of well written story hooks for you to use along with full inomation for the settings.They don;t on the other hand tell you exactly what to do for it but to be honest that works in it's favour because it allows you the freedom to adapt the stories for your own end. This is for storytellers only so stay away all you players. It's a scary world out there...

4.0 out of 5 stars Of angels and turtles, 2 Jan. 2005
I don't know how he does it you know. Another discworld book, another set of characters but, and lets face it here, the same plot as antoher book. And yet he manages to make it work so well it's kinda scary. Going postal is a little too close to "The Truth" for me to be happy, you know what I mean if you've read it, a run down organisation trying to make itself better against adversity and evil rich people. But like I say it still works wonders, look at it anyway you want, a funny discworld book, a commentry on the little guy going up against big business and winning, or just a book about a guy called Moist (and yet there are almost no jokes about his name). this isn't the best jumping on point if you've never read a Discworld book before, and to be honest if you have read them then there's nothing on Earth going to stop you reading this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inside Gollum's mind, 2 Jan. 2005
When I first saw this, I must admit I thought to myself "Oh no, just another book of the same old stuff we've heard a thousand times on all the LOTR DVD's". WRONG!!!!!!! It's a little like a diary (Day 13 Fish eaten:12, stupid fat hobbits bashed with rock:1... well not quite but you get the idea) written by Andy Serkis. It's nice to get a proper view of the creative process of Gollum without having Elijah Wood popping up every few seconds. You really get a sense of how proud Andy was to be working on the project and how attatched he got to the little fella (Gollum that is not Wood). Add into that some great pictures and your onto a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't put it off, you know you need it, 2 Jan. 2005
O.K, here's the long and the short of it. If you want to play DnD, be it as a player or a dungeon master you need this book. There's no way around it. Luckily it's a good one. The rules are as simple as you can make it, which is why so many companies are producing material using the same rules. So not only does it allow you to play the original Dnd but also go into things like D20 modern, star wars, warcraft and numerous other game settings. Do yourself a favour, buy it, read it, enjoy it, then get out there and slay them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good starting point, 26 Jan. 2003
The first pre-written adventure from wizards of the coast for 3rd ed Dnd is a great start both for a new party or for a new DM. All the planning is done for you, with only a little preperation needed. The encounters are well balanced and interesting, rather that the usual monster runs in and you hit him till he dies thing. Use it to get used to the rules.

4.0 out of 5 stars The true origins, 26 Jan. 2003
Forget everything that you've seen in the movies or in the cartoons, if you want to know thre true origins of the x-men pick up this book. It features the original x-men (no wolverine to be seen anywhere) and shows the start of their battle against Magneto. Fantastic value for a brilliant collection
