I loot the Wizard’s Body! (PFRPG/System-neutral)
This installment of Raging Swan Press’ “I Loot the Body”-series clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let’s take a look!
We begin this supplement with a massive table of 100 different wizard pouches and the thing to find are curious indeed – crossword puzzles in foreign languages, partially knit socks, sealed bins of beard balm, holy symbols, colored chalk, ropes made from impossible smooth substances – from the odd and quirky to the foreboding and weird, this table is great.
The second table sports a wide variety of different wizard’s robes, 100 to be precise – which range from living cloaks from which grass and vines grow to noble robes made of damask to classic outfits, including robes depicting the stellar constellations. There also are robes with hundreds of tingling silver bells, rough blankets with a hole for head and arms or simply ones with white furred hoods. Overall a diverse array, but one that imho is a bit robe-centric.
The third 100-entry table sports…bonded objects! From amulets made of dried raptor claws to classic amulets or rings, wands of iridescent scales, vials of odd liquid or tiny crystal balls – the selection here is once again a rather inspired collection – no complaints.
Editing and formatting are top-notch, as we’ve come to expect from Raging Swan Press. Layout adheres to the crisp and printer-friendly two-column b/w-standard and the pdf comes fully bookmarked for your convenience. It should also be noted that the pdf comes in two versions – one optimized for the printer and one optimized for screen-use – kudos for the extra-mile there!
Kat Evans’ take on wizard apparel to be found on the deceased practitioners of the arcane arts is certainly a fun dressing file – particularly the table on bonded objects is pretty inspiring, not only for GMs, but also for players looking for a different flavor for their bonded objects. The outfit table is somewhat less awesome, but this doesn’t really hurt the pdf – overall, a cool, fun dressing file, well worth a final verdict of 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5 for the purpose of this platform.
