This seventh and final book in the Monsters of Sin series for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is devoted to Wrath, the impulse to unrestrained destruction; an easy sin for someone who lives by the sword to fall victim to.

It includes:

  • The Hulking Whelp, a friendly beast who can become a deadly monster without notice—and it knows it.
  • A cruel and deformed animal that fairly earns the name Savager.
  • The Spiteful Spirit, a short-lived revenant summoned to seek retribution on the field of battle
  • The Embodiment of Wrath itself, a creature that only gets stronger the harder mortals try to stop it.
  • Detail on Wrath within the Midgard Campaign Setting.
  • Rules for incorporating Wrath into your NPCs and monsters.
Whether you’re running a Campaign of Sin, or simply feel like dialing the anger level up to 11 once in a while, Monsters of Sin: Wrath will be a raging success.

Solid mini-bestiary

This pdf is 11 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving us with 7 pages of content, so let's check out the final installment of the monsters of sin-series!

As is the tradition with the series by now, we kick off with an introduction to the sin at hand as well as the wrathful creature simple template (CR+3),which allows the creature to rage 1/day for 1d6+1 round as the spell and gain the diehard feat as well as reflexively rage when reduced to negative HP.

The new monsters are:

-Hulking Whelp (CR 5): A cute small fey somewhat resembling a small canine, cute humanoid, these neurotic fey grow to a dread huge size when their personal space is violated - per se a nice idea that may grant satisfaction to all those annoyed by yelling small dogs...or crush them! the creature comes with stats for both forms.

-Savager (CR 9): Supremely creepy artwork for a porcupine-like quilled grizzly with saberteeth and scimitar-like claws and a cool armor of scabs.

-Spiteful Spirit: CR-2 template that makes for a temporary undead after a foe has been vanquished. Nice simple template to give an NPC killed by a lucky shot another chance to shine. Per se a nice idea, but honestly, nothing any DM can't make him/herself.

-Embodiment of Wrath (CR 23): The final embodiment of sin-creature is a hulking, 4-armed apelike beast with an aura of anger, the power to detect those seeking to hide from them and a superbly cool ability: When damaged, it gains anger-points that it can use to deal bleed damage, grow an extra arm, haste, bonus feats etc., making the fight progressively harder and making the fight feel like it has phases. Very cool to make the boss fight work very well!

The pdf closes with a page on wrath-related fluff in the Midgard Setting.

Conclusion:
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn't notice any glitches. Layout adheres to the series' beautiful two-column standard and this issue's b/w-artworks are all rather well-made and iconic. The pdf has no bookmarks, which is a pity - apart from BP-length pdfs, all should have them by now.
The monsters of sin-series triumphs and falls with its brevity and unfortunately, this brevity also means that any creature that is not all killer, detracts from the issue's appeal. And said thing unfortunately holds true for the Spiteful Spirit template, which at best is boring and something that most DMs probably pulled off without having the template. Furthermore, the template's lack of any signature ability apart from its short-livedness is a wasted chance. The other creatures herein are stellar, though, with especially the embodiment's increasing lethality something I'd wish more designers used for their boss beasties. Kudos for the neat design - though I wished the other embodiments had similar options. All in all, this issue is a fitting, albeit not perfect final installment of author Ryan Costello Jr.'s series and will clock in at a final verdict of 4 stars from me.

Endzeitgeist out.

I am filled with rage about this. And yet somehow, that's a good thing!

Going in my side cart.

And you thought barbarians got angry.


And so I find myself picking up Wrath before I get Sloth. It feels oddly appropriate.

So, will there be a print compilation available at PaizoCon 2013? ;)

Sales have been mixed. To no one's surprise, Lust is more popular than, say, Envy.

There might be a print compilation next year, but right now it is not on the schedule.

*sigh* How about a PDF compilation of all 7 sins this year? I've bought a couple but all 7 rolled into one would be another purchase for me. Especially with errata / additional material :)

Something for anyone holding out for the print edition to keep in mind.

A PDF compilation will have to wait until the New Year as well. There's a certain Midgard Campaign Setting, and some Journeys to the West, and Kobold Quarterly #23 in line before we get to that one.

But yes, in the slightly longer run, a PDF compilation is likely.

Sounds good. Hopefully I'll be waiting on the PDF and print versions...

I sent a missive to the Kobold-in-Chief, and we've created this collection for convenience. :)

Thanks Liz!


And reviewed here, on DTRPG and sent to GMS magazine. Also submitted a batch-review of the whole series to nerdtrek! Cheers!

Thank you, as always, Endzeitgeist.


Excellent Review End!


Thanks! So, when are you doing the final one of the series?
