"Of Dreams and Magic" [Review] - Northern Gaming Network
Matthew Henderson of Northern Gaming Network had high praise for Of Dreams and Magic after reading through the hardcover core rulebook, learning the system, and creating a few characters:
"From Character development to the in-game engine itself, this is a game that truly feels like it rewards players who are creative and invested in the world, rather than merely rewarding those players who are able to combine all of the best feats together to create a superhero. All of this, added on to the truly deluxe feeling of the book makes this a game that I cannot recommend enough! If you are looking for a new RPG to try out this holiday season, you can't do much better than Of Dreams and Magic, from ODAM Publishing."

Brigadecon 2015 - "Not only of light and sound"
ODAM Fan Michael (aka whatislife42) told a great Of Dreams And Magic session, and fortunately enough, recorded it as a live play and sent it to us. We think it's a very clever application of what Of Dreams And Magic has to offer. On top of all that, it's an entertaining and engaging watch, so check it out!
