An excellent addition to Ponyfinder

*****

Ponyfinder
Tribes of Everglow
by David Silver

Reviewed by Scott Holmes

Layout
Well put together no obvious errors

Art
Full color art, very well done, helped set the feel of the entire book.

Playability
Much like the Advanced Race Guide from Paizo this goes into great detail for Ponykind, alternate racial traits, traits feats and archetypes for Earth Ponies, Pegasi, Unicorns, Zebras, Dopplegangers, Leatherwings, Bone Tribe, Chaos Hunters, Anteans, Gem Ponies, Clockworks, Seahorses, Sun Ponies, and Short-Legs.

Final Thoughts
A must have if you are playing in the Everglow Setting, each of these tribes have a great level of detail added to them. Overall a great deal, well worth it's price.

Final Thoughts
I love the history and background given to the Griffons in this book. Alternate race traits, traits, feats spells and gear, new archetypes. Gods for use with this setting are all well written they did an excellent job making everything in this book work well with in the lore of Ponyfinder.

Layout
The layout made the pdf easy to read, no obvious errors I could find.

Art
Full color artwork ranging from fair to good, overall it helped the feel of the product.

Playability
This has the potential to be a great gateway to get younger players into Roleplaying. Pony themed races, traits, feats and archetypes were all well thought out and fun to read. There are optional rules for pony themed Companions and Familiars that may be usefull in any game. Fully pathfinder compatible, at over 120 pages in length a sizable tome.

Final Thoughts
I thought the setting was well thought out, the campaign history and mythos was a very good read. As a gate to roleplaying this is a very good to to get younger players into roleplaying as a hobby. The look feel and rules balanced out very well to me.

4.5 out of 5 stars rounded up to 5 out of 5.
A little something for everyone, overall nice job.

Young Adventurers

Rogue Genius Games
Four Horsemen Present:
Young Character Options
by B J Hensley

Reviewed by Scott Holmes

Format
Like all Rogue Genius Games products the lay out is very well done, full color and no obvious errors. Makes this product easy on the eye to read.

Art
Full color art, the art helps with the feel of the PDF with out distracting from it.

Playability
Gives the age range from child , adolescence, to adulthood for each of the core races plus a little description of how the life of those particular races might for the children.

They list life paths for child characters to choose from, this give flavor to a would be child adventurer.

The next are traits, They have a Trait called Old Soul which gets around the character having sever penalties to their stats and limitation to choosing only NPC classes.
Plus other trairts tailor made for the young characters.

A list of feats that you can choose to make your young character special. These have decent special effects and help to balance out young characters

Lastly Archetypes, Ageless (Oracle), Destined Blade (Magus), Reincarnated Master (Monk), Street Rat (Rogue), and Wunderkind (Wizard) each of these are good options for the young characters allowing them to get around not being able to choose an adventuring class, good role playing options for each. These allow the child the options to adventure with the grown ups with being too penalized.

Final Thoughts
Overall an excellent PDF I bought it, and I like it, it will see use in my games as both a GM and a Player. I'd love to see more using other races with more feats and Archetypes based around young characters.

5 out of 5 stars
You got me interested, I highly recommend this to everyone interested in young characters.

Occultist Options galore

*****

Wayward Rogues Publishing
Shattered Skies
Campaign Setting
Mysterium Magnus: New Occultist Options

Reviewed by Scott Holmes
Layout
 So far the layout is what I expect from Wayward Rogue Publishing, Great lay out easy to look at no obvious errors, full color. Very professional. These PDFs always look top notch.

Art
The art is full color, it's flavor matches what I feel the book is intending. It is a great addition to a well produced layout.

Playability 
This PDF is loaded with material
7 new archetypes: Bearer of Plague, Noir Sleuth, Possessed Occultist, Profane Puppeteer, Silver Gunner, Sinister Savant, and Vile Conduit.
New Implement School: Color from Space
16 new Focus Powers
You definitely get a good amount of material for it's price.

My three favorite Archetyopes were the Noir Sleuth, Profane Puppeteer, and the Silver Gun They fit in very well with my style of play. All of the Archetypes have something good to give to the table. No balance issue I could see. One of the things I like about Wayward Rogue Publishing is that they make some evil archetypes for a GM to use The Sinister Savant and Vile Conduit, not only making this useful to players but Also A good tool for GM's

The Color from Space Implement is a very good tool for a GM to use for a Antagonist in a occult based game. Eyes of Lassitude, Unnatural Growth, Disintegrating Touch, and Eat Ego, make for a nasty villain to throw at your PC's.

Many of the new focus powers possess a strong Lovecraftian theme base on madness and the Great Old Ones, many of these are good options for a GM bent on causing his or her PC's to go completely insane.

Final Thoughts 
Very good the PDF has something for both PCs and Gms to use. I want to make a Profane Puppeteer as acharacter.

5 out of 5 stars 
Another top notch piece.
Scott Holmes.
