A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game compatible GM's Resource by Creighton Broadhurst

Tired of dungeons lacking in verisimilitude? Want to add cool little features of interest to your creations but don't have the time to come up with nonessential details? Want to make your dungeons feel more realistic?

Then Dungeon Dressing is for you! Each instalment in the line focuses on a different common dungeon fixture such as stairs, pillars or pools and gives the harried GM the tools to bring such features to life with interesting and cool noteworthy features.

This instalment of Dungeon Dressing presents loads of great features to add to the statues in your dungeon. Designed to be used both during preparation or actual play, Dungeon Dressing: Statues is an invaluable addition to any GM's armoury!

Dungeon Dressing: Statues presents:

  • Two tables (one dealing with humanoids, the other monsters) providing detailed descriptions of a statue’s appearance.
  • One table presenting additional statue features such as hidden compartments, damage, fungal growths and more!
  • Five clever statue-based traps (CR 2-9) along with two additional variant traps.

Bring your Statue to Life

*****

Dungeon Dressing: Statues, is a product that specializes in an under-utilized object in dungeons: the statue. Something that most players walk right by, this small product helps bring a statue to life. Now whether you want it to really come to life or not is up to you!

RATINGS

Publication Quality: 10 out of 10
Presentation of Layout: Raging Swan has a very minimalist format in their publications. If you purchase items from them, you should know that they don’t have heavy art or colorful layouts. But although they go small on the layout and art, they make up for it with the extensive amounts of information within the product. I personally, would love to see a little more color in their productions, but it’s not something that ruins the product. Information-wise, there is quite a lot of original and new information provided and done in a very efficient and clean way.

Ease of Mobility: The file is quite small and easy to transfer. It’s great to also see bookmarks that are done properly on an item as well. As a result of this minimalist approach, it’s easy to navigate through and is light enough to move around from mobile method to mobile method.

Mechanics: 10 out of 10
One of the things that this product does well, is that it explains to the reader, the rules that are already in place concerning statues in Pathfinder’s rules mechanics. They also expand upon these rules and remind you of other things you can do with statues. Along with that, they come up with some new fun traps that can bring statues to life.

Value Add: 10 out of 10
I do wish there was a little more art but I understand the way Raging Swan Press works. Their art is more in the information they provide. This is a great addition to a GM’s toolbox, especially if they are looking for something to add a little spice to the dungeon.

Overall: 10 out of 10
Personally, being a card carrying member of Pathfinder Society Organized Play, I would love to see things like this in our actual adventures. To have statues that turn into traps, or even real constructs in a dangerous way is stuff that only 3rd party adventures can supply. This is something I look forward to utilizing in my future adventures both at the table and in my own campaign writings. Raging Swan Press once again shows us why less, many times, means more.


Nice toolkit for a DM

****( )

This pdf is 13 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement, 2 pages editorial, 1 page ToC/foreword, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving a total of 6 pages of content, so let's check this out!

We all know the deal - sometimes you just don't have the time to furnish your dungeons or locales, either due to space reasons (when using commercial modules) or time reasons (when crafting your own. Raging Swan's new series seeks to remedy that situation and provide beleaguered DMs with a variety of sample furnishings and dressings to add flavor to their carefully crafted locations.

The pdf kicks off by providing hardness and hp for bone, glass, iron, wood and hewn stone statues as well as a table to topple statues via strength check and the damage they do when falling on foes. A comprehensive list of statue-foes from the 3 core bestiaries is also included here with respective CRs for your convenience.

After that, we get a page of statues depicting personalities, one page depicting beasts and monsters and one with dressings to further flesh out your statues. The descriptions are nice, serve their purpose and can generally be considered well-made.

After that, we also get a selection of 5 traps, ranging from CR 2 to 9, ranging from the basic and rather bland fusillade of darts to the release f poisonous yellow spores.

Conclusion:
As I've come to expect from RSP-releases, editing as well as formatting is top-notch - I didn't notice any glitches. The pdf comes fully bookmarked and with a printer-friendly version and the b/w-artworks are neat. This is once again one of the little, extremely useful files just about any Dm will be happy to have - details and fluff, dressings and minor objects do a LOT to make individual locales more memorable and if you've read "Shadowed Keep of the Borderlands", you know that the folk from RSP knows their craft. Much like Spes Magna Games' excellent "Dodeca Weather", this pdf provides a nice array of cool fluffy bits that will serve to enhance your campaign - useful, affordable and nice, I wholeheartedly welcome this new line of RSP-products and look forward to future installments - with one caveat: The traps are boring. I would have much preferred to get additional statues, perhaps even abstract ones of strange shapes or magical effects tied to them. Thus, I'll "only" settle for a final verdict of 4 stars.

Endzeitgeist out.
