I wanted to thank Endzeitgeist for taking the time to review Restless Souls, 5 out of 5 stars! Snoopy Happy Dance of Joy!
I liked "Ironborn" and "Wyrd" (See my reviews on them), I really did, but the "Restless Souls"-pdf ranks among the best-spent bucks in my 14 years as a DM.
Steve has got something in his eye.
Seriously, I've tried to find something, anything NOT to like in this pdf after realizing that I was inclined to like the topic in the first place (unlike "Wyrd", where I did not know what to expect and "Ironborn" where I was skeptical at best), but I just did not find anything. I found no filler-feat, no filler-spell, the artwork is great and player-friendly. Try as I might, I could not bring myself to voice a kind of criticism that would not be totally hare-brained.
For me, "Restless Souls" is just about perfect, I can insert it as is without any modifications and have found no flaw. It's a masterpiece and for $3.75 cheap to boot. My favorite Rite-product so far.
Steve, reading this pdf really made my day. Awesome work!
I found this great supplement as I was looking through the discounted Rite publications. It is absolutely great for an NPC I'd written up using the ghost template. I didn't really like the way the ghost abilities interacted with the PCs, but it was the best I could do for the NPCs story. The Restless Soul template is so much better.
All it needed was a bit of a custom feat, which I've included below.
Prerequisites: Incorporeal Form; Character Level 5th.
Benefit: Once per day as a swift action you can use remembrance as a spell-like ability (Caster Level equal to your character level) while assuming incorporeal form. Memories can be recalled beginning within a month after your death up within 24 hours of when you became a restless soul. These memories last until the next time you assume an incorporeal form. Your negative levels do not affect you in reference to this feat.
Special: Each subsequent time you take this feat you gain an additional use per day.
