The Journal of Franklin Von Mookenstein is overall a really good product. The write-ups are quite useful. If I have any complaint, it???s that I wish the product would???ve contained a few more original creations. As it stands, the book is primarily made of undead creatures from the D&D 3.5 Monster Manual. While this is great and quite useful it would???ve been nice to see some new monsters. In addition, perhaps statting up some iconic horror creatures, such as Frankenstein???s monster would???ve been cool. Still this book is quite useful if you plan on including horror elements in your game.
Also I was reading the introduction and I kept thinking of Mookenstein as a pastiche of Ravenloft???s Van Reichten who in turn was a pastiche of Van Helsing.
<b>LIKED</b>: Great write-ups and monster customization rules.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: I would have liked to seen a few more non-undead, non-Monster Manual creatures.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>
