I’d like to rid my house of cats.

What you get: This PDF only document is 12 pages long; front and back cover, title page and OGL take up 4 pages leaving 8 pages of content. On those 8 pages you get a new race: “Ratfolk” created using the rules from the Advanced Race Guide and 7 Ratfolk NPC’s of the following CR’s: 1/2, 2, 4, 6, 7, and 8. You also get the Hero Lab files for the content.

Artwork: There are 5 illustrations in the book ranging from “Meh” to “Excellent.” One illustration is in color (and would not look out of place in a Paizo AP or Module), and the rest are black and white.

Layout and Editing: Layout is a standard two column layout. Editing was very good, I noticed only one error in the entire document.

Overall Impression: If you came here looking for Wererats, you are in the wrong place. This book is filled with small humanoid rats. Two of the NPC’s listed are low level warriors for another of the NPC’s. The range of listed NPC’s is good. All of them could be helpful or harmful to a party to a greater or lesser extent. Each of the five NPC’s outlined has a reasonable backstory with potential plot hooks that could be used to drop them into an adventure.

Final Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. Editing was great, price may be viewed as high for 7 NPC’s. The Excellent artwork balanced out the “Meh” artwork. If you are looking to run a sewer themed adventure, this would be a good investment.


Nice Mix of NPCs

****( )

The NPCs shown here provide some great characters that can fit into just about any campaign to add that extra touch of flavor that will make that next quest or story arc memorable. Each appears to be well balanced and provide a few hooks to get adventurers involved with them. There is even info for a nefarious ratfolk clan and their leader. Now I just have to find the right time to add them to a new story arc... Gift Certificates
