The Relluk entry on d20pfsrd.com produced one of my favourite fan responses. Quoted below:
So we have a new race of steam-powered living constructs who look like stone tiki golems with Popeye arms and glowing crystals instead of heads, and operate out of a volcanic island which contains the crumbling ruins of the civilization which built them?
And they use a new mechanic for simulating armor that provides intriguing, useful bonuses that can encourage players to try out little-used kinds of armor by making them more effective?
And they're from the same people who created elf-ettins, living skeleton men, racist Cthulhu-slug-people, time-displaced Neanderthals who specialize in beating armored soldiers to death with beer steins and sharpened sticks, sentient bipedal caterpillars who evolve like Pokemon, and extradimensional anthrophile oozes that look like the Autons?
As a lifelong D&D enthusiast and fan of Silver Age comics, this is unimaginably beautiful. I feel like I'm gazing at documents from some strange parallel reality where all the writers for DC and Marvel decided to go work for Gary Gygax after the Bronze Age got going. Heck, half of this is occupying the same gloriously insane mental headspace as the sheet phantom.
I'm going to have to track down hard copies of all these books: Alluria Publishing has clearly proven themselves as the most perfect possible company to provide material for my homebrew campaign setting.
