Perhaps the best in the series.


Raxath'Viz The Creeping Rot by Raging Swan

This product is 30 pages long. It starts with a cover and credits. (3 pages)

Raxath'Viz The Creeping Rot(22 pages)
First we get a bit of a background, which is really well written. Next we get a full heavily hyper linked stat block for him. He is a CR15 kobold, Cleric 10th, Divine Scion 3rd and rogue 3rd. Following this we get motives, appearance, history, personality, resources, Lair, network, tactics, morale, plot hooks, lore with DC checks, and the six profane boons, these are things his god has charged him with. As written he has accomplished 5 of the 6. It has rules for downgrading him to what stage he is at. Each time he accomplishes one he got more powerful.

We get a short bit of IC story told. Next we get stat blocks for a 10th level oracle Otyugh, then there is a list of followers but no stat blocks for them. There is also some new traps as well listed. There is also a full stat block for his pet as well, along with a full stat block for a massive otyugh as well. There is a full write up on his goddess Maramaga, with her church. It ends with a page on a cult.

It ends with a OGL ads, and how to use this with herolab. (5 page)

Closing thoughts. There is very little artwork, there is one color and a black and white art. They are fair. Editing and layout was good, I didn't notice any obvious errors. These products have been getting better and better. This one is very well written and interesting. I liked the last one in the series a lot but I think I might like this one even better. So what's my rating? Well I have nothing really negative to say about the product so I am going to give it a 5 star review.

So What's a Human Called, Anyway. by Raging Swan

This product is 13 pages long. It starts with a cover, ToC, and credits. (5 pages)

Names(5 pages)
Here we get groups of names broken up in random tables. First we get Anglo-Saxon names, there is 50 each of male, female and surnames. Next we get Finnish names broken up the same way as the Anglo-Saxon names. Greek names come next which is done different and I honestly don't know why. We get 50 male and female names each and then 50 nicknames which is just descriptive words like short, tall, fat etc. Roman names goes back to the normal format and we get 50 male, female and surnames each again. Then Viking names go back to having 50 each of male and female and then 50 nicknames.

It ends with a OGL and ads. (3 page)

Closing thoughts. There is no artwork in the book. I wanted to like this book I really did cause I find things like this handy. But I noticed some of the names with a quick check at online naming sites are wrong. Most are fine but a few are wrong gender or seemed to be spelled wrong. Then I don't know why some of them have nicknames instead of surnames since having full names for cultures seems to be the point of having a product like this. I really wanted to like this product but it needs work and really needs to have the Greek and Viking surnames added and the product cleaned up a little. Still it is useful and handy for 2 bucks. I can't recommend it, but if you would like to have a handy random name chart for a couple of cultures this isn't to bad, but not to good either. So what's my rating? Well I do hope they make more of these and go back and fix the problems in this one. For now though I am giving it a 2.5 star review. Worth the asking price barely and of limited use.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.

A collection of the 101 spell series.


1001 Spells by Rite Publishing

This product is 291 pages long. It starts with a cover, ToC, and credits. (3 pages)

Spell Lists(34 pages)
Here is has the spell lists for each of the PFRPG casting classes. Each class gets a number of spells. I started to count how many each class got but it is hundreds each. They range from level 0-9 or max level for the class.

Spell Descriptions (232 pages)
Here is the meat of the book with full descriptions of all the spells. Luckily the book is heavily bookmarked to allow one to quickly find the spell one needs.

Appendix (19 pages)
Here is the spell lists for all the caster classes in the Advanced Players Guide and Ultimate Magic.

It ends with a OGL and ads. (3 page)

Closing thoughts. The art work is black and white and range from fair to pretty good. Editing and layout is very good. I didn't notice any errors at all. It is well bookmarked which is a must for a PDF this size. This is a collected version of the 101 spells series done by Rite Publishing earlier. Which means there is 1010 spells or should be, I honestly didn't count them to be sure, just to many to count and not lose track of at some point. I do like how they added in the AGP and UM classes to this, I was hoping for them as web supplements for the previous series. For the price you just can't go wrong with this. The real question is, if you have the other books do you need this one? No not really, it is handy having them all in one place and having the extra spell lists but this isn't needed. For the price though for those that don't have the other ones I recommend picking it up. So what's my rating? Well the previous series got mostly 4-5 star reviews. A couple of complaints I had, has been fixed and I didn't notice any errors so I will give this a 5 star review.

Very cool monster book for the plane of shadow.


Book of Beats: Monsters of the Shadow Plane by Jon Brazer Enterprises

This product is 52 pages long. It starts with a cover, ToC, OGL, and credits. (4 pages)

Monsters(39 pages)
It starts off with a list of monsters from the 3 Pathfinder Bestiary's that also fit the plane of shadow. There is 57 new monsters in this book so no way I can list them all. They range in CR from ¼ to 21, and they seem to be fairly evenly spaced out in CR ranges over that range. This includes the first four appendix's which included several types of shadows 5, skeletons 6, zombies 6 and a new Darkened Template with 4 monsters having it applied to them already. Below is a few of my personal favorites.
Darkling – evil fey that look wicked cool and are wicked cool. They can self heal by licking blood from their fey axe.
Deathand – think of them like soul stealing grim reapers.
Dull Mite – I love them just for one of their special abilities. Color steal, yes they drain the color from stuff and do Chr dmg. Gnomes of Pathfinder shake with fear.
Elemental Shadows – Something needed.
Great Dodo – It's a giant Dodo being shown eating a man, what more need I say?
Monkeybat – it is a monkeybat that flings … filth... your players will HATE them.
Nightstalker – a Shadow undead lion thing, that causes desecration and fear.
Onyx Ooze – A ooze long ago trapped on the plane of shadow and transformed and spawned a new race.
Phantasm Swarm – tiny undead swarm, one of the coolest monsters in the book.
Vampiric Tree – despite it's name it is just a tree that eats living things.

Appendix 5-8 (8 pages)
Appendix 5 is a copy of the universal monster rules. Six is copies of feats used by the monster within this book. Seven is a new subtype of monster the shadow subtype and Eight lists the the creatures by CR groups.

It ends with a ads and back cover. (3 page)

Closing thoughts. The art work is black and white and range from meh to pretty good. Editing and layout is very good. I didn't notice any errors at all. It is well bookmarked which is a big plus for a PDF this size. There is a whole host of varied and well done monsters, with new and interesting abilities, how they fit into the plane of shadow ecology, etc. While not all the monsters where great, there was very few bad ones and the vast majority where very good to outstanding. If this is the type of product we can expect from the rest of the line I really can't wait for it. I should note I am somewhat biased. I love the plane of shadow and have been looking forward to this book and the rest in the series since I heard about it. Plus I live there, so I am curious to see how well mere mortals get it right. So what's my rating? I am giving this a 5 star review. If you want monsters for the Plane of Shadows or more options from that plane then pick it up. You won't regret it.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.

4.5 star review


Random Encounters Remastered 3 by Purple Duck Games

This product is 31 pages long. It starts with a cover and credits. (2 pages)

How to Use this Book(8 pages)
This section explains how to use the new encounters and all the new aspects and what they mean. It includes a bunch of terrain features, random tunnel table and some new hazards.

Expanded Tables (17 pages)
Here each location gets a indepth encounter table, disposition table, and terrain table. The locations expanded upon here are.
Bowels of the Earth – deep deep down into the earth.
Endless Caverns – old dungeons, caves systems near the surface etc.
Highlands – Hills and mountains.
Scorched Waste – deserts, wastelands, scrub lands etc.
Teeming Veldt – Warm Plains and low Hills.
Windswept Plains – Flat open plains such as in Russia Steeps or the Midwest of the US.

It ends with a OGL and contact info. (4 page)

Closing thoughts. The art work is black and white and fair. Editing and layout is very good. I didn't notice any errors at all. My first reaction to this one was it wasn't as good as the previous ones. I think mostly cause it overlaps it's self with Bowels of the Earth and Endless Caverns. They are different but similar same with the Teeming Veldt and Windswept Plains. After thinking about it though I am glad both was done as they are different enough to have different monsters or creatures in them often. The terrain and hazards where not as inspiring but still good. I put this up with the rest of the series, the best random encounters tables yet made for Pathfinder or really any game. I really have nothing bad to say about the product. So what's my rating I am giving this one a 4.5 star review.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.
