Add to Cart
Monsters of Sin epitomize the very worst of our natures—and they prey on others' weaknesses. This fifth book in the Monsters of Sin series for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is devoted to Pride, the unshakeable belief in your own superiority, a sin that festers inside many player characters as their adventures become legend.
The most spectacular representative of an unimpressive race, the Emperor Kobold.
The Abominable Beauty, whose perfect appearance is a pain to behold.
The deformed Mirror Hag, who confronts others with their own ugliness.
The Embodiment of Pride itself, a mocking monument to the inferiority of all mortals.
Detail on Pride within the Midgard Campaign Setting.
Rules for incorporating Pride into your NPCs and monsters, and a Pride template.
Whether you're running a Campaign of Sin, or simply want to poke some holes in the egos of your game's heroes, Monsters of Sin: Pride is perfect in every respect.
I should add that there is no definitive list of the seven deadly sins. Some lists include greed, others avarice, some include pride, others vanity. The final two books in the series will be Monsters of Sloth and Monsters of Wrath. I bring this up because one of Endzeigeist's points against the mirror hag is that it punishes vanity more than pride. We never explicitly state it, but this product lumps pride and vanity together.
I do like what I read of End's review, though I would like to know: what is the dividing line between pride and vanity? Because really, the Mirror Hag sounds like an awesome monster to me, and very fitting with some of the myths about hags.
