5/5

This Everyman mini clocks in at 8 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!

So, what is a malborgoroth? Something really cool. You know how the cult-critter flumph is a representation of the weird good guys, the foes of the Dark Tapestry. Okay, now combine these with one of Final Fantasy’s most notorious foes – the Marlboro/Morbol! Add a dash of lovecraftiana et voilà – we have the critter in question!

The creature clocks in at CR 13. Its stingers inject acid for continuous damage, which is nasty; they can bury their tentacles into the ground to duplicate black tentacles and remain stationary. They are poisonous and have starflight, can emit entangling, acidic belches and are capable of starflight. The critter has impressive defensive capabilities, ensuring that it won’t be killed right off by potent PCs…and even better, the creature gets the FF-monster’s gloriously vile super-debuff/condition-heaping breath. Epic!

Even better, we don’t just get stats – the pdf weaves a tale of the creature’s origin in detail, providing ample inspiration – oh, and we get 2 CR+0 variants – a cold-based variant and a fire-based one.

Conclusion:

Editing and formatting are very good, I noticed no hiccups on either formal or rules-language level. Layout adheres to Everyman Gaming’s nice 2-column full-color standard for the series. The pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length. The artwork provided for the creature is cool as well.

Alexander Augunas once again proves that he can craft thoroughly amazing monsters – from the inspiration to the execution, this critter is inspired and worth the asking price. Highly recommended! 5 stars + seal of approval.

Endzeitgeist out.

Thank you, Rick!

The malborgoroth can be best described as "Lovecraft meets Square Enix, all wrapped up in the lovable guise of a horrifically corrupted flumph." They were wicked fun to create, and I hope you guys enjoy them!


Reviewed this pure amazingness turned critter first on endzeitgeist.com, then submitted to Nerdtrek and GMS magazine and posted here, on OBS, etc.

Folks, check out this gem. If Alex ever writes a bestiary of epic, brutal critters like this, I'll gobble it up.

You flatter me, End!

But a Bestiary of brutal monsters, you say...?


It's deserved! My players love your challenging critters and since posting this review, a couple of my readers actually contacted me to ask if I knew more...pointed them to Levias, obviously...but yeah. Your critters are interesting, flavorful, creative AND challenging. So yes, I'd back a bestiary of such critters.

I’ll keep that in mind. I’m currently working on an idea that’s an expansion of the Adventures products that is focused on challenges—Paranormal Challenges, Childhood Challenges, and so on. It’s still an in progress; I’m trying to figure out what I could add to make them a good buy for GMs and players alike.
