My opinion might be considered biased since I started writing for TrollITC and I got a free copy of this, but I think this is his best supplement yet.

Nice number of items so it felt "worth the purchase". Each item had a fair amount of detail, I think Ben is starting to get the swing of how to do these write-ups.

I had a few issues with what may be overpowered bonuses, but that might be chalked up to personal taste for campaign power level. There is one particular item that stands out to me as an immediate "problem child" in game, the Powder Mask. Among its many overpowered abilities, a nearly at will use of True Strike seems a bit much for any priced item.

I spoke with Ben this morning about this product, and I think he's actually doing himself a disservice by not advertising the fact that he worked with an anthroplogist to create some of these items. Each one of these creations has a lot of character with some hints of real world myths.

While Ben is getting better, I get the impression that he's also a loose sort of GM. He covers more in this document than his previous magic item list, but he still leaves some key specifics to the reader's imagination. I'd prefer a little more grounding than he gives, but for those who like the freedom, this is good.

All-in-all I'd say skip the Powder Mask and tone down some of the bonuses a bit, and this product is great. A steal at 99 cents, and has some really fun concepts for D&D, Pathfinder, or even if you just want items not rules, any fantasy system.
