Razors and Thunderbolts: The Ksirafai
Publisher: White Wolf

This product consists of a brief introduction on who the Ksirafai are (were, rather) and how to use them in a Sorcerer's Crusade game, followed by 9 sample characters. It was a bit light on background material and didn't really extend the Ksirafai in any way, and functioned mostly as a pregen character pack rather than anything else. It's solid, but unfortunately not exceptional, and something more along the lines of a Convention Book: Ksirafai (Guild book?) from this author could be something special.

Razors and Thunderbolts: The Ksirafai

Razors and Thunderbolts is a short but well written overview of the mysterious Ksirafai in Mage: the Sorcerers Crusade. It gives some good advice on how to use them either as player or non player characters. As NPCs these shady agents can be either protagonists, antagonists - or both!

What brings the score down for me is that a big part of this already thin book is made up by character concepts with full page character sheets. While very diverse and interesting, I would have preferred more background material, perhaps some example rotes or NPCs.

Overall a well written and good-looking book that appears rather thin, but still worth the price.

Thank you very much for the rating and review! I understand where you are coming from with the page count. I ultimately needed to make a choice whether to have printable character sheets that would be ready to use at the table or to go with a more condensed stat block for each pre-gen. I elected to go with the character sheet in keeping with older World of Darkness Tradition and Convention books. I found that in creating the text this did prove useful as a way of envisioning each character while looking at the spread with their image and stats in order to craft a backstory. Hopefully the included backstories each give players and Storytellers fertile enough seeds to drop these characters into a game while still illuminating life among the Ksirafai. In any event, I thank you VERY much for taking the time to review Razors and Thunderbolts. Reviews and ratings are massively helpful to both creators and customers. Thanks, Travis
