It comes as a sign from above, that as I create a Grippli character for the next Pathfinder game I will playing, I should receive an e-mail that tells me, “Racial Ecologies: Guide to Grippli is now on sale!”, and for two dollars no less! So, I quickly bought it, read it, and applied it to my character. I have always been a fan of the Grippli race, and whenever I feel like playing a light-hearted character, it’s my go-to. But, the information on Grippli has never been abundant, other than the basic, “They live in swamps, are nice, and love shiny objects!” But no more! The dark ages of Grippli information is gone!
The history that Fat Goblin has created is great, expanding on the vague history presented out since the Grippli was first introduced in D&D. The pictures are amazing; too bad there aren’t many in it, but the amount of information is abundant enough to make up for that. I love fleshing out characters completely, especially if there is a large amount of material on the race.
I definitely give this a 5/5 review, because it’s a must-have for any Grippli fans, or for anyone who wants to play a fun race. I hope that a sequel to this guide is released which expands on Gods and more of the social(Mating, partnering, ect), weapons, and religious ritual aspects of the Grippli that are included in this book; along with more pictures of Grippli themselves showing off their colorful and unique patterns, of course. I would buy it in a heartbeat.
I can see an all Grippli adventure for my group sometime in the future. Thanks Fat Goblin!
