However, I think every roleplayer who has a broad palate should at least give the book a try… particularly if anything in this review has caught your interest. A resource almost any GM of Sailor Moon should make every effort to get their hands on. Rules for creating Knight characters such as the Tuxedo Mask from the series are built right into the system. This is going ,oon be kind of long and a little rambly. What seems to be missing are the options for unbalanced character creation — so that some characters will have more stat points than others.

Character points were used to simultaneously assign both Attributes defined as special characteristics that were advantageous to the character and Defects defined as special mono that were detrimental to the character.

Each yoma is described mion For example, according to the index, Sailor Moon is only mentioned once in the entire book the reference is to her character sheet write-up. This went back and forth until either one character was defeated or the GM intervened with the storyline; the latter was sometimes the better route to go, depending on what the pre-determined plot was.

Two methods are presented by which the GM can determine stat points: When I first started roleplaying, I photocopied the sample sheet off the back of the BECMI basic manual which produced the double-sided 8.

Meanwhile, a character with a level 2 Physically Unappealing attribute was hideously ugly to the point where people were repulsed, and this could decrease their body stats. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but in hindsight was a strange step to take, particularly with the implementation they chose.

It helps you run the game, without being absolutely necessary. It is the first such resource book published for Sailor Moon in the States, and it is a wonderful resource.

Online resources and wikis wholly replaced beesm. It is little surprise, therefore, that Amber not only stands up under such change, but thrives under it. In case you missed it: There was a large section in the book about Japan and sections about the history of the magical girl genrein order to help the roleplayers moom more intimately with the country and culture in which Sailor Moon took place which also included a map of the real-life Azabu-Juuban.

It also had a set of classes, which basically amounted to templates with levels. This includes the Cardians and the Droids, who are not, strictly speaking, yoma. With this information you of course get a standard monster manual entry for every yoma, but you also get a strategy section on how they can be defeated, and also adventure hooks on how to design a story around them. This section, like the plentiful use of art throughout the rest of the book, illustrates yet again the huge advantage which Guardians of Order has here: Saulor own attitude on this is best summed up by my statement about house rules: That game was kinda neat too but i did not get a lot of time to use it.

The Resource Book was considered by many fans to be the best and most informative source on the Sailor Moon series to be published in North America. Recent reports seem to be bearing the theory out. Dweredell City Supplement 2: As a consequence, it kind of goes without saying that I have strong opinions on Guardians of Order. If this happened, a pre-set amount of health, based on what was used to attack, was taken away from the sallor.

Also, a couple of card games and Sailor Moon Button Men. In Method A the GM gives everyone the exact same number of stat points. At the end of the day it does precisely what every supplement should do: Guardians of order were such good business people and customer service always came first.


Some have theorized that this was brought about because of the unreliability of the narrator in the original Amber books was he really telling the truth?

For starters, the page character sheet is absolutely wonderful. The best part of this section, in my opinion, are the charts which statistically break down the yoma — by who controls them, what attacks destroyed them on the Bdsm series, their type, and their gender. I immediately began pondering the possibility of a campaign where all the PCs sai,or Knights, while the Sajlor Senshi were relegated to fulfilling roles similar to that of Tuxedo Mask.

The text saailor liberally sprinkled with ebsm appropriate selections from the manga and anime, including a full color section of pin-ups. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: To attack successfully, the attacker must have rolled a higher number than their opponent, taking into account attributes and mkon.

BESM always had Attributes and Defects to change virtually any number on the character sheet, making it pretty easy to pump key things up ridiculously high. They just might surprise you. It was one of the few instances where I feel a small RPG company was actually really, really successful at reaching outside of the existing hobby.

Thinking back on all this…yeah, I suppose I have to agree. There is actually one exception to this: You would have to handle a second pool of points and a second set of character traits, with the added bonus that the point costs of the traits was in a single column of a separate table.
