Casus Belli 38
I've just received my paper copy of Casus Belli 38. I already wrote about it in Narration Principal when the PDF version was made available.
When I was a kid, Casus Belli was almost my only source of information. Now, with the Internet, the magazine feels slightly out of date at each time. But scenarii and critics/opinions do not feel out of sync.
Speaking of scenarii:
- Monsterland for Monstres de Joann Sfar (also the author of The Rabbi's Cat. This scenario was played as a one-shot in actual play (23 pages);
- Le Septième Fragment for the Call of Cthulhu (15 pages);
- Le Prophète de l'Echec for Laelith (city setting for DnD 5e) (11 pages);
- Fuites for The Expanse (9 pages);
- Diversion for Aquablue (13 pages).
There are plenty of reviews, small and large, here are the ones that I noticed:
- Les Brumes, an interactive dungeon system, usable in solo or as a RPG module (5e);
- Macchiato Monsters, I guess I don't need to tell what it is;
- Sur les Chemins de l'Empire, I wrote about it under Roads of the Empire.
There is a "cesspit exploration guide" that looks promising with its 20 random tables. It's meant for Laelith, the city-setting proposed by Casus Belli, but could be adapted to other settings.
There is a sandbox for Hexagon Universe placed in Fontaineblau during the german occupation. Scary.
The "Archéo-Rôlisme" column is about Shadowrun and the "Archéoludologie" one is about The Adventures of Indiana Jones. The latter didn't seem to have survived.
