Robe of Summoning by Raging Swan Press

This product is 18 pages long. It starts with a cover, credits, OGL, and ToC. (5 pages)

Robes (10 pages)
It jumps right into the new summoning robes, which are variations of the robe of bones. At the end we get a page about reading stat blocks. All the robes have full stat blocks for the monsters they summon. The new robes are as follows.
Robe of Bones – slightly different from the PFRPG, but very similar.
Robe of Animals – you can call forth some natural animals. In the broad sense some snakes and frogs are included.
Robe of Caves – kinda obvious things you would find in a dungeon cave. Bugs of a few types, choker etc.
Robe of Vermin – you get bugs, frogs and swarms. I would have liked this one to have been a bit more vermin focused with perhaps things like dire rate in place of some stuff.
Robe of the Waves – ocean going creatures, this is the most unique of the new robes with all new creatures.

It ends with a ads and back cover. (2 pages)

Closing thoughts. The artwork is black and white and ok, but there is a single image of a robe used over and over. I honestly would have rather them got art for each robe or just left the images out other than one maybe at the beginning. Editing and formatting where pretty good, nothing major that I noticed. As for the robes the new slight change to the robe of bones was nice, though not sure why they did it. I felt the Robe of Waves was hands down the best, the other ones where not bad but to much overlap between them for my taste and they didn't stand apart nearly as much as they should have. The Caves one was second best, the other two could have used some replacements for the overlaps they had with the cave one.

So what's my rating? Well if you like the Robe of Bone and always wished there was something similar for non undead user to use then this gives it to you. But I was a little disappointed on the artwork and one some of the robes not having enough variety. It is worth checking out for the price though especially if you are a fan. I am giving this one a 3 star review. Get some new art for the robes and tweak the Animal and Vermin robes and I would change it to a 4.
