Think You've Seen It All?

It's a big, scary world out there, and for your players, it's gotten nastier. The Book of Monster Templates gives you more options, more creative flexibility and more ways to just freak out your players with new templates—itching to be added to any Pathfinder RPG monster.

Enjoy innovative templates like The Bloody Maw who consumes magic items for their eldritch power, The Boundfury who lives to punish and guard those it has found guilty, and the Phlogiston Creature, an arcane construct that combines magic and technology to create truly frightening additions to your favorite evil wizard's laboratory.

More than just a collection of templates, each entry comes with Lore information, Ecology, and succinct, yet detailed guidelines for how to use the templated creature in your next game. The Book of Monster Templates gives you the creative oomph you've come to expect from Rite Publishing, and it'll give your party something to remember for a long time—if they survive!

This Preview includes the Entropy-Infused Creature Template.

A tasty appetizer for the Book of Monster Templates

*****

The Entropy-infused creatures designed by Steve Russell evoke the old school "negative energy" quasi-elementals, and apply the theme in an interesting and nasty way as a set of new templates.

In 4 packed pages of material, you get the rules to make ash-, dust-, salt-, or vacuum-infused creatures to wreck havoc on your party. Additionally, you get a fully designed creature with the dust-infused template applied, complete with roleplaying tips and a fleshed-out encounter. Finally, the preview presents two new feats which can be applied to any burrowing creature.

The preview features the gorgeous cover art by Hugo Solis (slightly obscured by the "free preview" text, which I would expect), and a fantastic illustration by Grey Thornberry of the frightening dust-infused feirling.

There are a couple of nit-picky issues which should be picked up in final editing ("entorpy" in one place for example), but not enough to detract from the rating.

In conclusion, who doesn't like free previews, especially for something you can put into your game right away?
