This Everyman Mini clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 5 pages of SRD, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!
Wait! Right at the bottom of the SRD? There’s a coded message there. See if you can crack it sans decoder!
So yeah, Allakhadae. Another nice touch is that this pdf’s introductory text? It warns the GM; makes slightly fun of them Alen Igma. Loved this introduction.
But what is Allakhadae? A CR 30 Great Old One. BOOM. And I mean “BOOM” – this fellow uses both psychic magic and kineticist tricks, being classified as an essokineticist who draws upon the powers of the planes themselves and uses psychic energy instead of regular Burn to pay for its powers. The Great Old One is impossibly skilled, can change sizes – and thankfully, is imprisoned…for now. The entity also can spend PE to warp reality, making REAL mirage arcana, simulacra,etc. – in short, we have a truly FRIGHTENING campaign-ender elder evil that WILL challenge your high-level PCs!
Of course, such an impossibly smart entity does have a cult, and as such, the pdf also includes the dream subdomain, which allows for the shaping of pleasant dreams (or nightmares), and 8th level yields basically a variant of the witch’s slumber hex.
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I noticed no issues on a formal or rules language level, apart from a missing blank space in flavor text. Layout adheres to the series’ two-column full-color standard, and the pdf has a neat artwork, as seen on the cover. The pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length.
I love Alexander Augunas’ monster-design. His critters have a tendency to have staying power, to be difficult and imaginative in their abilities, and this beauty is no different. 5 stars + seal of approval for Bill! 😉
