Esoterrorists 2nd Edition Pdf 11
This is a great addition to the Esoterrorists universe. It expands the types of activities characters can and can’t undertake, it adds new types of dangers to the game and can make your PCs feel like they are facing horrors they cant cure themselves.
Esoterrorists 2nd edition means a lot of things to me. First and foremost it’s a matter of honour. It has been more than three years since the death of Anthony Richardson, and it’s now a grim necessity that I release this new edition myself. If this were a movie, it would be the end of the road for one man (who is in no way the hero of his own story) and the beginning of a whole new era. If this were a book, it would be a life work. If this were a product, it would be the only version available. If this were an organisation, it would be O. Veritatis. And if this were a game, it would have been the one of the most brutal and bloody conflict in gaming history. If you play the Esoterrorists, you will be well aware of this. And you would be very wise to remember it.
That being said, the reason Esoterrorists has survived for so long is because of the people involved with this setting. Theyve been creating the game for a long time, and I think they deserve some credit for that. Also important is that this is a balanced setting. Esoterrorists is able to boast solid classes, a powerful system and a solid set of rules as a result. If I were to be faulted, it is that I think there are perhaps just a few too many rules. But since it’s a setting without restrictions or limits, then I am sure that the system has already been working its way into the minds of many gamers who just wish to play. I have had people tell me that they play the Esoterrorists because they know they can play no matter what their characters are. So I am pleased for that. Still, it seems odd to meet a new player and try and explain how something works. You look at him or her and say, «Ok, so…you are a cable guy who made it big?» And you are doing so because you know he or she is not necessarily interested in fighting City Demons or making it to the top of the Leaderboard. So you go on to explain the basic class concepts and the terminology.
This is also the case with many of the essays as they too have excellent art (in this case by Maelstrom Design ) alongside some excellent writing and design. Indeed, if you havent read the first edition Conspiracy X core book, I recommend that you do so as there is a lot of new information presented here. However, the book does suffer from the same problem as the Ibid campaign of making the player characters over-powered and too powerful: this is no longer the case, at least from page 8 onwards, but I would have liked to see more of the campaign, and some flavour text (but not too much as that in a full-length book) presented to the players as they begin their investigations.
As with the first edition of the game, there is a strong feel to this book that you can easily picture the Investigators The Esoterrorists campaign running through a couple of nights on a wargame table. The writing, which is very much done from the point of view of a game master, has a similarly infectious tone that fits in perfectly with the quality of the art. It would, however, be remiss not to mention that whereas the first edition of the Esoterrorists core book was a fluff-fest, this new version is more of a campaign reference-book providing extensive details on the war itself, as well as the Players, powers and factions represented.
Before you read this though, you might want to check out the recently released Esoterror Fact Book Review . Be sure to check out the review of the new Mike Pondsmith themed scenario, Maelstrom: The Esoterrorists, which was also published in the last few weeks.
