For the Pathfinder RPG customer who wants a little more, Everyman Gaming is proud to introduce Everyman Minis! Uniting several high-quality Pathfinder RPG freelancers under a single product line, each week a different Everyman Gaming author or freelancer tackles an exciting new topic by creating a miniature product specially designed to scratch that product’s particular itch.

This installment of Everyman Minis includes: 1,000 words detailing an all-new species of kami, the kabochahito. Unique among their kin, these wardless kami treat all harvests as their ward, and can freely move from pumpkin to gourd and beyond as they please. Kabuchahito kermis are known for their ability to transform ordinary pumpkins into a suit of corporeal pumpkin armor, and can even curse victims with costumed form! Also included is a new confection commonly concocted by kabochahitos that provides a temporary magical costume for its imbiber.

With Everyman Gaming, innovation is never more than a page away!

5/5

This installment of Everyman Minis clocks in at 9 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 4 pages of SRD, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!

We begin with a low-cost, cool class of magic item: Costumed confections are magical sweets that can be consumed to create a regular disguise, which does not modify your clothes (minor nitpick: spell reference not italicized); the second type transforms into a monstrous humanoid or humanoid, as per disguise self, affecting all senses (and no disbelieve). Finally youthful confections transforms the target into a younger version – all effects are polymorph effects and last for 4 hours. Cool!

The main meat of the pdf, though, would be the Kabochahito, the CR 7 pumpkin kami. And no, this is NOT another evil scarecrow/pumpkin monster – in fact, the kami is NG! It is incorporeal and conjure forth confections. Oh, and it comes with a TON of unique abilities: It can swallow beings and transform them into other shapes – the behavior of creatures is then made innocuous to onlookers. This can also be combined with a geas/quest – failure may see the target trapped in that form. Unlike most kami, kabochahitos can switch wards pretty quickly and assume pumpkin/plant-form with stat-modifications included. They can also generate massive growth spurts among plants. Big plus: Unlike many monsters, the kami is properly contextualized within the gaming world, with a lot of inspiring prose.

Conclusion:

Editing and formatting are very good, I noticed no serious hiccups. Layout adheres to the nice two-column standard of the series. The nice pieces of art are in full-color. The pdf does not come with bookmarks, but needs none at this length.

Luis Loza’s pumpkin kami are amazing. They are creative, benevolent and fun; they can make for genius Halloween-themed adventures and are a welcome deviation from the well-tread path of evil pumpkin monsters. Interesting, creative – no complaints. My final verdict will clock in at 5 stars + seal of approval.

Endzeitgeist out.

Thanks, Rick! And thank you, Rysky and Thomas, for keeping the thread warm while I was out taking care of errands. :D

Holidays are on the mind here at Everyman Gaming! Not only did we just release our trailer for our upcoming Christmas-themed adventure, Yuletide Terror, but this week Luis Loza has even more holiday goodness for you in Everyman Minis: Pumpkin Kami! The titular pumpkin kami is a kabochahito—kami that consider all agricultural harvest to be their ward. This enables kabochahitos to hop from gourd to gourd without penalty, and gifts them with the ability to transform pumpkins into powerful armor (and even curse naughty creatures with frightful polymorphic costumes).

Why wait a week for some Halloween fun? Pick up Everyman Minis: Pumpkin Kami today!


Sounds like fun. Are Pumpkin Kami a real thing, though?

I did know about vampire pumpkins, thanks. Those are monsters we really need to see in the game, they'd fit right in with all the other weird things we have running around.

End's review sounds great, especially the whole 'swallow you, transform you, and then geas/quest you to get turned back to normal.'

Monsters are fun when their abilities lend themselves immediately to adventure. :-)
