Wrote a review of this product - here's an excerpt of my review:

"The forty-two page supplement covers over thirty Monsters from the collective works of H.P. Lovecraft. In addition, there are seven unique Magic Items found in this work, most of which are scaled over a range from Level 2 to Level 30, so in essence creating over twenty-five items in all. You can also find over twenty original sketches in this supplement, illustrating the blasphemous entities and bizarre items contained therein, to use as game aides and to just further enhance the overall creepiness of the work.

Starting right from the Introduction, I knew that the author was as much a fan of Lovecraftian horror as I was. From reminiscing about his first experiences with the Mythos to lamenting the lack of good Lovecraftian material in the game, I was pretty sure the Author would not disappoint me when I got to the really good, tentacle-flailing, icky stuff.

I am very pleased to report that the Author did not let me down.

After just reading one of the creature entries in this book, it is becomes quite evident that “Blackdirge” has a clear and concise understanding of the Cthulhu Mythos material – as does McFalls, who illustrated the assortment of cosmic terrors lurking between the pages. From the bizarre Powers these fearsome entities possess to the Flavor Descriptions and Lore, “Blackdirge” shows that he is well versed in the language and treatment of Lovecraftian Horror, and makes it very accessible for use in D&D 4e.

Coincidentally, the Author writes his material to be just as accessible to a GM running a Modern 4e Campaign as it would to your typical Dungeons & Dragons Fantasy Setting. So it’s really like getting two supplements in one PDF."
