Review Burp: RPG Reviews With EN World & Knights of the Dinner Table

KoDT #252
Krendel Core
Last month I reviewed the Krendel Core RPG in Knights of the Dinner Table (KoDT) issue #252 and Heroes Wear Masks, a superhero themed RPG skinned for use with Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition. Both of these products received somewhat mixed reviews. Each had some things that I liked, and each had things I didn't care for.

Heroes Wear Masks
Krendel Core is a system-less RPG toolkit. The game encourages somewhat of a story-teller approach to gaming, but this system offers a lot of options in how to approach it. Certainly, a plus side of this product is that it's currently available for free on DriveThruRPG and RPGNow.

Heroes Wear Masks for D&D 5E is Avalon Games reskin of it's popular superhero themed Pathfinder version of the same name... The appeal of this product should be for folks who aren't familiar -or interested, in learning another system other than D&D 5E, but want to play a superhero themed RPG. It certainly has potential. The review on EN World is here.
