Get Outta My Trash!
In a fantastical world, the thing looting through one’s garbage can in the evening might not always be so mundane as rats or raccoons. All sorts of magical creatures dwell on the outskirts of civilized lands and take advantage of the refuse left behind by humanoid settlements as a means of survival. The most interesting of these is the TRASH GRIFFON!

An Endzeitgeist.com review

2/5

This mini-pdf clocks in at 4 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, leaving us with 2 pages of content.

One of these pages is devoted to a one-page iteration of the nice full-color artwork, while the other contains the rules-relevant material and background.

Trash Gryphons are CR ½ Tiny magical beasts that actually are a variety of different entities that combine the traits of mammals and birds; the most commonly-known one is raven/raccoon, but pigeon/rat or jay-squirrel hybrids exist as well. An alternate ability that lets them use a skunk musk is provided. The statblock isn’t perfect and lacks e.g. flight maneuverability and has a few minor snafus in the math, which is jarring at low CRs and such a minor stat complexity.

Conclusion:
Editing and formatting are good on a formal level, but on a rules-language level, there are more glitches in this simple critter than I am comfortable with. Layout adheres to the series’ two-column full-color standard, and the artwork is cool. The pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length.

I’m sorry to say, but the trash gryphons by Jacob Blackmon and Margherita Tramontano fall short – I like the concept, but with hiccups in such a simple critter and not much offered beyond the basics, and we’re left with a flawed little pdf. I can’t go higher than 2 stars.

Endzeitgeist out.
