This mini-pdf clocks in at 3 pages, ~1 page of editorial, logo, SRD, leaving ~ 2 pages of content, so what do we get here?
The Reaper is a man in interlocking metal plates who has been around for years – at least according to the history of this strange vigilante, though the rumors allow a DM to easily add one’s own spin on the mysterious killer that annihilates those that oppose him. The truth is rather strange and as such, 6 sample research ideas allow a DM easy ad verbatim investigation structuring around the characters.
Of course, I could spill the true history of the character…but I won’t. Just be assured that some tropes from super-hero comics find a cool resonance in this guy. 3 plot hooks supplement him, as does a new weapon, the slayer’s gauntlet and a CR +1 template utilized in his build. This template also contradicts (somewhat) a certain alignment line in the character’s statblocks, hinting at the dark future that is to come. The Reaper clocks btw. in at CR 10 and is a rather deadly build.
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn’t notice any glitches. Layout adheres to a 2-column full-color standard that is still relatively printer-friendly. The character has an AWESOME artwork, an original piece that is worth the price alone. The pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length and comes with a second version that provides copious hyperlinks of the good type.
Jaye Sonia delivers with this awesome character – with a glorious artwork, a cool build and a very low price, this guy is a sketch of an adventure (or even a series of them) in one pdf, for the low price of a buck – and as such, is well worth a final verdict of 5 stars + seal of approval.
