This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Review and Comparison Lords of Olympus & Lords or Gossamer and Shadow

Greetings!

Thank you for taking the time to review these products. We always love getting feedback to find out what's working and what's not. I would like to mention that we've continued to develop a number of resources for LoGaS, which addresses some of the concerns you had for the game such as: Such as Gossamer Options: Characters, our Gossamer World series (world expansions), and The Long Walk: Life on the Grand Stair to name a few. LoGaS was always intended to be grown and have many avenues for players and GM's to explore and as such we knew it wouldn't fit all into one book.

We are looking forward to continuing to expand LoGaS, so feel free to send any thoughts you may have to Miranda@RitePublishing.Com. Thanks again for your support of the gaming industry and taking the time to do these types of reviews!

Sincerely,
Miranda Russell

Quote from: CRKrueger;969769
Yeah but, in Lords of Olympus aren't all the PCs the most powerful beings in the setting and constantly at each others throats over status and bragging rights? :D

EXACTLY.  That's why I went that route.  Because the key element of Amber is not the dimension travel or the immortality or magic, it's that the Amberites are one huge totally dysfunctional family in a soap opera of epic proportions.

Which, frankly, is also what the Greek Gods are.

A bit late to the party here, but the comparison that began this thread and the quoted post are exactly what sold me on Lords of Olympus over the other diceless games. Brilliant marriage of system and theme to a setting, Pundit!
