5/5

This installment of the Deadly Gardens-series clocks in at 5 pages, 1 page front cover, 1/2 page of SRD, leaving us with 3.5 pages of content, so let's take a look!

All right, we begin this pdf with 2 different magic items, the first of which would be the nettle net, which not only can be used by those with enough Knowledge (nature) ranks. The net has a properly codified damage type and may cause sickened and even paralysis via its nettle poison. The second item would be the rod of the winds that allows the target to walk and fly in hurricane scale winds and also allows for a limited command of wind strength. 3/day, the wielder can affect those hit with a bull rush and the rod also sports several different SPs with the cardinal winds as a leitmotif. Nice, even though wind-themed rods are not something I'd use again after a certain saga featuring wolf-spiders...

The pdf also sports a selection of new natural items, with a total of 7 different items: Bullete musk pods harvested during mating season can be used as a nice perfume that can help with the influence of influencing creatures. As a nitpick: A skill-reference is not properly capitalized here. Gloomwing patterns can be woven into a robe that penalizes Will-saves. Grey Render brain fluid may be distilled into a loyalty-enhancing concoction - interesting material for cults and the like. Slime mold salad may sound disgusting, but is actually delicious and helps versus ingested poisons. Tendriculous burl can be grafted on other plant creatures with various effects - as a minor nitpick, the actual benefit here would have warranted a proper template; it is pretty rudimentary in its presentation here. Yrthak tears net you temporary synesthesia for blindsight. And finally, greenscream trumpets can be used as a nice kind of megaphone or signal horn.

Speaking of the plant - what does the star of this pdf bring to the table? Well, the greenscream trumpet would be a CR 4 Medium plant that may use its eponymous ability as a standard action, vibrating their stems and causing AoE sonic damage...this blare may also prolong the deafening creatures suffer from the blast. 3/day, they can also focus their sonic blasts in a particularly devastating sonic line...and they even have a chance to penetrate silence and similar effects. Very cool turret-style guardian critter. Like it!

Conclusion:

Editing and formatting are very good on both a rules language level and on a formal level. Layout adheres to a 2-column full-color standard and the pdf sports a really nice b/w-artwork for the critter in question. Also really cool: The pdf comes fully bookmarked with nested bookmarks -kudos for going the extra mile there!

Sam Kaplan, Matthew Carroll and Mike Welham deliver a cool critter with some nice supplemental material herein. I don't have any issues with the pricing of the respective items. The critter is niche, but very cool and concise in its presentation...and well worth the low and fair asking price. My final verdict will hence clock in at 5 stars.

Endzeitgeist out.
