Elements of Evil: Gnolls
by Tyler M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/21/2017 22:32:01

I wrote a review/overview on my website and Patreon, Zargo Games, but I'll share it here too!

Brief Summary: Create a playable gnoll race based off wolves instead of hyenas.

Overview: This product has a surprisingly high production value for such a short product. There’s an illustration, a cover (with the same illustration), a title page, a legal page, and a back cover. However, the core of the product feels lacking.

The flavor and illustration makes the gnolls feel more like werewolves stuck in the wolf form rather than a monstrous humanoid. The names section is rather small and has pretty on the nose names such as “Snarl” and “Flesh-Carver.” Past that, the traits are a mess. The race is ridiculously underpowered by the fact that all three of the mental stats are decreased by two but only two of the physical stats are increased by two, and one of them by one. The rest of the features feel a little ridiculous, such as the ability to go into a bloodlust and continuously decrease your AC to increase your attack bonus and damage, the ability to essentially echolocate the topography, and the choice of extra hit points, improved intelligence, improved bloodlust (which is already crazy), or improved experience point gain. It’s a mess.

Verdict: Despite a few decent ideas, this product is slim and contains very little of use to players of DMs. Still, it has a price tag of free, so it might be worth checking out.

Thank you for the review, Tyler! The Elements of Evil titles available are (very) preliminary releases, which is why they do not come with a price tag. It's reviews like this (amongst other things) will help shape the final product. When it's complete, if you would like an advance copy of said final product to look over, please let me know. Thanks again for taking your time to write an earnest review, it's much appreciated. Cheers! Sincerely, Jacob S. Bos

A witty little bar with some interesting possibilities.

The Syrak Catacombs: Level, The First

Great drop-in dungeon crawl. Fit in nicely with a pre-existing campaign of mine.
