EN World Review – Enter the Shadowside

enter the shadow coverWell here we are, it’s Wednesday once again, and I have a new another RPG game review posted over on EN World News!  As you probably noticed, I did not post a review last week, what with the mid-week holiday and all, and I hope that all my American readers had themselves a great Fourth of July!

For those counting down the days, it is a mere 35 left until the opening of GenCon 2012!  I think I’ve completely filled in nearly every slot of the four days now with a seminar, demo, or event now, and I should have a lot of great things to report from the convention this year!  And I’ve got review marterial lined up each Wednesday from now until mid-September, so stop back and check out the new product releases I’m taking a look at from time to time.

This week, I’m taking a look at a gritty horror-genre indie roleplaying game called Enter the Shadowside.  It’s a game of secret societies and the occult, where characters form a bond with spiritual entities from the “other side”, and investigate strange mysteries around the world.

Review of Enter the Shadowside by Marco Leon

Overall, the game has merit, but I think the author neglected to include crunch to go along with all his fluff.  A game master (called here a Story Host) has his work cut out for him trying to run this game in its current form, unless further content is released by the author in the future.  Still, it has an intriguing premise, and I definitely enjoyed reading and reviewing the product, even if I couldn’t give it perfect marks.

So until next blog… I wish you Happy Gaming!
