A good, though not stellar Web-enhancement

4/5

This pdf is 8 pages, 1/2 page is taken up by SRD.

The pdf kicks off with 5 new spells:
-Cold Snap (Drd 3, Sor/Wiz 3): Damage enemy with cold, Con- damage, staggered
-Dessicate (Drd 2, Sor/Wiz 2): Damage enemies, especially aquatic ones and fatigue them for a short time.
-Protean Return (Sor/Wiz 9): Temporarily transform enemies into primal goo.
-Stone Strike (Sor/Wiz 2): Use burned out Ioun stones for ranged attacks.
-Wave of Mutilation (Clr 6, Drd 6, Sor/Wiz 6): Deal damage and Cha-damage.

We also get 5 new magic items:
-Clarifying Goggles: Help see under water
-Eight-Finger's Ink: Tatoo that helps you grapple and increases your unarmed grapple damage
-Radiant Nimbus: Actually 3 different items, these flames contain lost knowledge
-Satchel of Seawalking: Use magical salt to harden water
-Sharkskin Vest: Makes you shark-like

We get more lost technology of Ankeshel! YES! Sorry. I just loved the original ones to death.
-Ankeshelian Arciary: Verbally record information. Gold as a story-telling device for GMs.
-Thalassos Box: Ankeshelian First-aid kit.
-Velourian Psychograph: Helps you determine whether one lies, can be used as a lie detector with the option of punishing lies.

Then, we get special underwater attacks to use in place of standard attacks:
-Asphyxiate (Self-explanatory)
-Breaching Charge (Jump from the waves like a Dolphin and attack)
-Kickback (Self-explanatory)
-Share Breath (Save allies who drown)
-Spin (spin opponents not securely standing)
-Turbulent Charge (Use your mass to make the water turbulent while charging)

We also get a new critter, the Faege (complete with its very own b/w artwork), a CR 4 aquatic fey that might be mistaken for a cloaker or a stingray. They also get a CR 4 variant.

Conclusion:
Patrons got this file for free, so I'm not entitled to complain about the very low price. Formatting is good and kept in the 3-collumn horizontal style. The B/w artworks are nice, as is editing - I didn't notice any mistakes.
The spells, apart from Protean return, didn't impress me that much, though, and while I love the equipment, the Faege as a creature is nothing I'd use in my homegame. For what it is, it is a good, cheap file, though. I'll settle for a solid 4 stars.


A must pickup for fans of Sunken Empire.

Closing Thoughts. This is a nice addition to Sunken Empires the art work is fair to good. The new items are all nice and fit in with the undersea campaign that is Sunken Empires. I am honestly unsure exactly when this product came out. The spells don't list the new APG classes but then it might have come out before the APG. Not sure, though it would be nice if they went back and updated this PDF to included them. The editing and layout is nice, there is really nothing bad to say about the product or even a nitpick really. If you liked Sunken Empire then I strongly recommend you pick this up as well. I am giving this a 5 star review.



Is this the same material that was posted for free on their website?

Yes, but nicely formatted.

And with art!

It is, in fact, a response to a specific fan request that we take the web material and compile it into a PDF. If this one is popular, I think we'll probably do more.


Interesting...

I really liked this book, that could be a nice supplement. And for less than $2, how can you beat it?

I am reading this right now. I just got to the spell section. Yes they are existing spells but with a new take on them like Leaf Armor in place of Mage Armor... but WOW! I am blown away by the fluff on these spells. I absolutely love them. When i get time I will do a full review of this later in the week.

Thanks, would love to see your review!

And yeah, the reskinning of spells like Leaf Armor is one of my favorite bits, and a strong argument for the value of well-done flavor elements in games.

Oops I meant to post that in the Tales of the Old Margreve Web Compilation thread. I guess I wasn't paying attention.

I was very, very confused, DM. Hahaha.

Yeah not really sure how that happened. I mean other than the obvious that I just wasn't paying attention to where I was posting.
