The great people over at Wordcasting Entertainment were nice enough to send me a coupon for this one after I pointed out a couple grammar errors on one of their other products.

The Soulcaster is a pretty cool class. It adds another form of "magic" to the game that is exclusive to the class but that could be added to monsters too. The book includes the class itself, 8 new feats tailored for use by the soulcaster, about 16 pages of new, soulcaster only, spells (levels 1-5) and finally 15 different soulcaster statblocks for a bunch different levels and builds.

The art was interesting and original. Mostly photos heavily modified with filters and other effects. Many of the pdfs I've been buying lately have "free" art or cartoon-ish looking stuff so it was refreshing to see something new and different.

Unfortunately the grammar in the book is pretty bad and the writing when it is correct is many times wonky and strange or extremely trite. For example one of the powers descriptions says, "The wind picks up in the area you've chosen and it blows away all ability." This is a spell that does ability damage but it sounds like it might have been written by someone who speaks English as a second language.

Many rpg grammatical conventions weren't followed and some of the spell names are really strange. My favorite part was when the writer used a Stone Temple Pilot's quote as the short description for a spell.

So if you can put up with that kinda stuff and you're looking for something new and exciting to add to your world, I would say give the soulchaser a try. The price is cheap for 46 pages.
