SLOGAR THE UNCARING—CR 7, CE half-orc male cleric of chaos and evil 8

Filthy, haggard, and vicious, Slogar the Uncaring is used as a tale to frighten children into behaving. Followed by his trusted zombie steed, Daisy Pusher, he leaves blood and pain in his wake as he prepares the world for the coming of the end.

The world is filled with colorful characters of many hues. Not all within subscribe to black or white; many are shades of grey. Infamous Adversaries characters, by TPK Games, shows you villains in their true light—insidious. These are not merely NPCs to fill your game; they are villains in the truest sense of the word, complete with stories that don’t just tell the character’s tale, but enrich your game. Our adversaries are not villains because they have evil alignments; they are villains because your players will despise them.

Infamous Adversaries contains: one ready to use villain, complete with equipment, a rich background including motives, history, personality, network, resources, lair, tactics, morale, advancement options, a quote, plot hooks to easily insert them into your campaign, local lore, full color art and a vibrant description. The Infamous Adversaries characters are designed to challenge an entire party; not just in combat, but also through less direct methods requiring careful planning and confrontation.

This Infamous Adversary sourcebook contains Slogar the Uncaring, a half-orc cleric doomsayer and his zombie steed Daisy Pusher.

Give your players a reason to hate again. You can blame it on us...

Our latest revision updates "Slogar the Uncaring" to meet the current standards of quality that TPK Games provides. In addition, we’ve added new custom content (a map of his hideout, short fiction, three new magic items and a spell, plus bundled with Hero Lab files).

Excellent update and expansion

*****

This pdf is 20 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 4 pages advertisement, and 1 page SRD back cover, leaving 13 pages for Slogar the Uncaring, so, what is he about?

After a full-color, one-page artwork of Slogar the half-orc and his zombie-steed daisy-pusher, we get a new short-fiction, Slogar’s statblock (half-orc cleric 8[theologian], btw.) as well as an elaboration of his motives and appearance as well as his background story. He is a prophet of the endtimes (no, that does not necessarily grant him leeway from my wrath ;D ) and seeks to hasten the inevitable final showdown between good and evil by vile deeds. The sample stories given center around gruesomely killing innocents and feeding them to his zombie horse. Slogar, as a rather straight-forward loner does not offer much in regards to network, resources or allies. It should be noted that Slogar's Hideout get a neat, beautiful full-color map as well as greatly expanded hooks to draw the PCs into conflict with Slogar. Full stats for his CR 4 Undead warhorse Daisy Pusher are part of the deal, as are 3 iconic signature magic items that enhance Slogar's fighting style and his uniqueness. Have I mentioned his new spell, which lets him divine from the entrails of those he has slain?

Conclusion:
Editing is ok, but I noticed some rather awkward phrases that could have been written more compelling. Formatting is ok. Layout adheres to the two-column standard and the statblocks feature some hyperlinks to d20pfsrd, which is nice. Layout has been updated to TPK GAmes new, much improved standard and feels more cohesive. The pdf has finally gotten a vast amount of bookmarks, which is awesome, as is the additional HEroLab--support..

I'm quite frankly positively surprised by the vast improvements TPK Games has made to Slogar - bookmarks, short fiction, magic items, a full-color map - there's not much left to be desired, honestly. Slogar's first incarnation left me unimpressed and this one has eliminated almost all my gripes. While I think he can't hold a Torch to Raxath'Viz and Temerlyth, he is FREE and you'll be hard-pressed to find any that well-written, professionally-presented NPC out there, even if he is not as compelling as TPK's other offerings. Without the "Free"-factor, I'd settle for a final verdict of 4 stars, but with it, there's no reason to not dl Slogar. And rest assured - the commercial releases by TPK Games are even better and thus, my final verdict will now be 5 stars.

Endzeitgeist out.


It's free pick it up.

Infamous Adversaries: Slogar the Uncaring by Total Party Kill Games

This product is 12 pages long. It starts with a cover, credits and full cover art of Slogar. (3 pages)

Slogar the Uncaring (6 pages)
It starts off with Slogar's stat block. Slogar is a 8th level Half Orc cleric with a zombie horse named Daisy Pusher. It is a full stat block even listing the Chaos and Evil domain powers. Next it gets into his motives, appearance, History, personality, network of allies, resources, lair, tactics, moral, advice on how to level him up, a personal quote, some plot hooks, a lore table to learn about him, and ends with the full stat block of Daisy Pusher.

It ends with a OGL and back cover. (3 pages)

Closing thoughts. The only art is the single full page, full color art of Solgar and Daisy pusher at the beginning of the book. The art is fair in quality. Layout and editing where pretty good. Not all of the sections such as lair, network etc where used. It is obvious they are setting up a template for all such future products. Some mention just how he doesn't have such things. He would make for a interesting side trek villain. He is a true villain in that he is evil for the sake of being evil. I don't see him becoming a long term villain mostly cause I just don't see the PC's not hunting him down and ending him at all costs. Though he is a bully and likes to torment the weaker and will run from a fair fight if he can. He could be a dangerous foe, but as I said I don't see him lasting long term.

So what's my rating? Well the product was fairly well done. He was from a GM stand point something nice to spring on the PC's but he wasn't super inspiring, though his horse is amusing. If this was a pay product like the others in the series I would give it a 3 star review, worth the price. But is is a free product which makes it good value. I mean it's hard to beat free. Which makes me want to give it a 5, just cause it is free. So I settled on a 4 and split the difference. It is a solid product and it is free.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.

Cool I will check it out. I will say the horse name of Daisy Pusher just cracked me up.

*aimed at Paizo* I tried to download it but it is not downloading. It is not displaying the normal "it should start downloading in a few seconds" box. The downloads page is just refreshing.

*aimed at TPKGames* Greetings fellow publisher. I look forward to reading your material and making my players weep with it.

Shadow Lodge

Thanks everyone for the warm reception. I must say we had just as much fun writing these as you will making your players weep. Enjoy!

I've had that happen before. Just click on it again and it usually opens the file and you can save it.

Works now, thanks Liz.

One quick OGL error that should be addressed:

Spoiler:
Section 6 of the OGL says: "You must update the COPYRIGHT NOTICE portion of this License to include the exact text of the COPYRIGHT NOTICE of any Open Game Content You are copying, modifying or distributing, and You must add the title, the copyright date, and the copyright holder's name to the COPYRIGHT NOTICE of any original Open Game Content you Distribute."

This means that all the works you are referencing in the OGL must be included in addition to everything in their Section 15's. The Bestiary has many, many references. Since you referenced the Bestiary, you must include all of them. You might want to check the Inner Sea World Guide to see if it has references. I don't have the book so I can't tell you one way or the other.

But you should get that fixed and re-uploaded soonest.

Shadow Lodge

Will do, thank you Sir!

I gave it a once over. It was ok, but it could use a little more polish to be honest. A few words are over used honestly and it could use another editing pass. A example of what I mean is this line from the book.

His favorite daily activity is to overtake lone travelers, many times torturing them before feeding them to Daisy Pusher.

many times torturing them... just sounds clunky. Something better would have been something like.

His favorite daily activity is to overtake lone travelers, taking his time to torture them until their body and mind give out before feeding them to Daisy Pusher.

Or something like that, I am far from a author myself, but the first one just reads poorly. Just FYI, still not bad for a first time publishing attempt for a free product. Just remember since it is free you want it as perfect as you can get, to encourage others to buy your other stuff.

But all that aside would you use Slogar and Daisy Pusher in your own campaign and how?

If I needed a quick side trek in a game. I would use him as say someone who just hit a local farm and let the PC's try and hunt him down.

The Exchange

Also want to throw some props in the direction of TPK Games and Necroblivion. He/they have been actively engaging d20pfsrd.com since before they even started releasing product and I too look forward to more great stuff from them.

I normally don't review free products, cause... well there free what more do you need to know? But since this is a totally new company i decided to make a exception so... reviewed.


Reviewed here and sent to GMS magazine.
Cheers!

Shadow Lodge

Endzeitgeist, our free Slogar giveaway was definitely a more lighthearted and fun example of what's to come. I think if you read our actual "for sale" products you will get what it sounds like you were looking for. The other reviewers definitely speak to that. Good gaming sir!


Explanation of his Saves?

It's listed:
Fort +21, Ref +13, Will +18

From what I can tell it should be:
Fort +11, Ref +4, Will +13

Typo? Or am I missing something?

Thanks!

TPK Games has recently re-released their FREE Infamous Adversary: Slogar the Uncaring to meet the current standards of quality that TPK Games provides. The revised version features a considerable update, new fiction, 3 new magic items, a spell, hyperlinks to the d20pfsrd, plus Hero Lab files!

Have fun, and don't forget to tell us all about your encounters with Ol' Slogar!


Just dl'ed the updated version, will let you know what I think after I have time to look it over.

Shadow Lodge

Thanks! I was told that some people were having issues with the bundled map for some reason. It has been updated in a more user-friendly version of Acrobat, and I hope that nixes the issue.

Regardless, Slogar has underwent a major overhaul and we had a fantastic time rewriting him. Don't be surprised if he shows up again in a future product.

Shadow Lodge

I downloaded the update from DriveThruRPG, and the bundled map is still not working for me.


Updated my review to reflect the changes made to the pdf here and on DTRPG. Excellent support!

Shadow Lodge

Awesome! Thanks for taking the time to re-review our revised work Endzeitgeist!


You're welcome! That much extra value and effort has to be rewarded, I wanted to do this update some time ago, but with all of them going on this week, I figured I'd do it now. This one has made vast improvement!
