I wasn't really sure what to expect when I got this. Previous work had led me to expect tight thematic packages that were very well developed and focused. Looking at the solicitaiton this was clearly kind of something more like a cornucopia or shotgun blast of random fun pieces. Usually such products are fields of debris with a few quality bits to really lock on to. The wall of content I got after the download was nearly intimidating, but I quickly realized that each piece was gathered into nice consumable sections and it is rapidly become one of my favorite things to browse. And it keeps getting updated through the course of the year! This collection simply floored me on release and then continued to get more and more valuable. The sheer tidal wave of content is amazing. Piles of interesting racial options, a dozen new classes. Dollar for dollar you can't find a value in mechanical crunch that touches this product. Here are a few favorites:
- Accelerist - One of the coolest speedster-themed classes I have ever seen for Pathfinder. It has great mechanics that are robust without being bogged down in complexity and covers the concept 4 ways in its base design before you even get to the archetypes.
- Battle Augur - I loved Blue Magic in the Final Fantasy series and this is another battle/monster mimic class that really delivers on presentation of that theme. Presented in a concise manner that covers a large variety of abilities it is hard to believe how much it packs into 3 pages of text.
- Darkseeker - Divine servants of Shadow that combine magic with stealth and sneak-attacks to round out any campaign where the power of the Shadow Plane is felt.
- Dalits - Playable otyugh-kin. drops mic
- Mushroom Leshys - Leshys are one of the most adorable monsters in the game and I have a soft spot for another playable option for unique family-friendly game experiences.
- Archetypes for old standbys like Fighter to the newest Shifter in the Pathfinder core are sure to open up options you never thought you'd see.
180 pages of delicious crunch makes this a steal at the price.
