Purple Duck Storeroom: Tiny Monstrous Humanoids

130263

This Purple Duck Storeroom is 11 pages long, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 9 pages of content, so let’s take a look!

 

Monstrous Physique II allows you to turn into tiny humanoids. Problem is, there aren’t that many. In fact, in core, there are none. Enter this book.

 

So let’s take a look! Gaeolings at CR 1/2 are small, furry beings that can spray blinding dirt and camouflage as dirt. Cool! CR 1 Mirelings are deadly, superbly stealthy, potentially degenerated/cursed micro-halflings that can’t be detected and are adept at vanishing. And you thought certain trap-making kobolds were a nightmare to catch. Seriously, a capable DM can wreck havoc with these guys…

 

Also at CR 1 Nimerigar are tiny, yet deadly warriors utilizing poison while hunting even creatures of mountain lion size and above. On the very disturbing side, imagine a combination of stirges and small humanoids for the Stirgelings – yeah. The iconic imagery alone is well worth the price of admission here and I *know* I’ll be using these guys.

 

Speaking of potentially disturbing – the Trowlings with their tiny greataxes and their regenerative qualities also make for a strange imagery – think about those guys, Gulliver-style, chopping to bits the tall folk… *shudder* On the more benevolent side, the Urslings might look like teddybears, but are actually benevolent protectors – think gummy-bears, the race.

 

Conclusion:

Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn’t notice any significant glitches. Layout adheres to a 1-column digest-style b/w-standard and the pdf comes bookmarked in spite of its small size – nice.

 

This is Purple Duck Games and author Perry Fehr at their best – no frills, cool and iconic creatures that universally have something awesome about them AND at the same time, this closes a hole in the rules? Yes, please. And take a look at the exceedingly fair price point. Believe me, you will not regret getting this one. Well worth the low costs, iconic in imagery, 5 stars + seal of approval. Two thumbs up!

You can get this inexpensive, ncie pdf here on OBS and here on d20pfsrd.com’s shop for just one buck!

Endzeitgeist out.
