Update 12/19/2017:upgraded my rating after archetypes were added in an updated file. Thank you!

Having recently purchased Tricky Troll's bundle and liking what I saw in the bestiaries and other setting kits, I was quick to grab this one when it come up. Overall, I find it to be well-worth adding to my collection. It nicely fills the urban fantasy niche that seems to be lacking. The book layout is pretty basic (entirely black and white except for the cover), but I like this as the art is great and it's easy to follow and find information. It's organized well and I find it easy to locate all the necessary information.

I'm certainly happy and I have some ideas on how I want to use this for some adventures, but there was one thing that I felt was missing: stats on the archetypes. The descriptions of each are great, but when I see an archetype, I expect oget an idea of what their build might look like. You can extrapolate some through the Bestiary entries, but I would have liked a set of basic stats with the archetypes. While it doesn't detract, I think that the pages dedicated to the Adventure Generator could have been better used for additional setting ideas and/or tools.

All that said, the book itself is a great addition to any library where GMs and players have a desire to create an urban fantasy game not unlike Grimm, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or The Hollows series of books.

I bought this file after buying the Vigilantes file from the same company, so i was fairly aware of what I would get. And I was quite happy to get it as well.

in 20 odd pages, Fable Hunters gives you the skeleton of a modern fantasy campaign where humanity is secretly preyed upon by creatures from folklore and myth. The book provides a brief background, some stat-less archetypes (and as the other reviewer said, some stats would be nice) for players, some new edges and flaws, and monster stats for the bad guys.

I personally am I big fan of the random adventure generators you get in many Savage Worlds games, and this has a good one, but one that I would have liked to have been a bit larger with more entries. At a mere d6 per adventure element, I can see a lot of duplication happening.

Between this and Vigilantes I am a fan of this company and this line of products, and will definitely keep my eye out for more campaign setting kits.
