The Book of Antitheses

(1/1)

RPGPundit:
I review The Book of Antitheses, one of the weirdest RPG products ever made. But is it actually good for anything?

I mean, at the very least, it seems to do what it's supposed to do in terms of LotFP product. Which is usually irritate and insult people, yeah? Though, I wish you added a bit more thoughts on its viability as a ttrpg book. Though, I say that with no real dog in the fight considering I don't think I'm the target audience in any way here...

As a book of GM advice, most of the stuff it suggests would be easier to just do without magic than with.
As an adventure, the adventure part is playable, but goes out of its way to be as offensive as imaginable.

Zelen:
This was a pretty cool review from the perspective of the book's authenticity. Generally I'm not too concerned with actually casting spells when it comes to RPG books, but something like this could be fun just for the seemingly OTT gonzo weirdness factor. I considered picking this up as a gimmicky gift for a friend -- But wow, the price tag for the actual book is so steep, esp. considering it's only 160 pages. Might be better off grabbing Invisible College at that price point.

Myrdin Potter:
Invisible College looks like an interesting read, but the Drivethru comments section and the preview shows it to be difficult to use because of the layout choices made.
