5/5

This installment of the Deadly Gardens-series clocks in at 5 pages, 1 page front cover, 2/3 of a page SRD, leaving us with 3 1/3 pages of content, so let's take a look!

The pdf, as always, includes a couple of magic items - the first of these would be the low-cost accursed thorns - really cool magical caltrops that temporarily affect the unfortunates with a deforming curse, halving their land speed. The second item would be the silvered apple, which detects nearby lycanthropes and may be eaten to temporarily silver the unarmed and natural attacks of the person consuming it. Nice!

Also included in the deal would be 6 natural items, including tatzlwyrm glands that provide a bonus versus paralysis and sleep after consuming it. Shadow mastiff eyes can be flung to the ground (as a thrown weapon or slingstone), shattering and dimming the environment. Gecko glue, gar scale armors, disenchanter trunks that can sometimes recharge items (though it imho should have limited uses), sound-range doubling androsphinx-voice-boxes...some cool ones here. The dream weed snuff can help creating things in psychic duels.

Speaking of dream weed - the plant is a CR 10 creature: Upon being hit by these, they implant a psychic seed, instigating a psychic duel and creating a thoughtform to battle the unfortunate...and worse, defeating the thoughtform may not be the end: There is a chance the thing reconstitutes itself! Really nasty and cool...and know how these spawn? From those that fall to e.g. a xtabay's victims, incapable of rising from the visions...yeah, creepy.

Conclusion:

Editing and formatting are very good on a formal level. Rules-language-wise, it is similarly very good, but not perfect. Layout adheres to Rusted Iron Games' 2-column's two-column standard and the pdf comes with a nice b/w-artwork. Really cool: The pdf is fully bookmarked, in spite of its brevity.

Jacob W. Michaels, Joe Kondrak and Kim Frandsen deliver a rather cool installment here - the critter is cool and so are the items, though not all of the natural items are perfect. For the low asking price, this is very much worth getting. Hence, my final verdict will clock in at 5 stars.

Endzeitgeist out.
