This installment of Purple Duck games’ Purple Storeroom-series clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of SRD (though one of these has a bit of flavor text), leaving us with approximately 7 pages of content, so let’s take a look!
Porphyra is suffused by elemental lore and the conflict of the NewGods and their servants with the Elemental Lords – hence it should come as no surprise that tiny elementals should exist in such a context. So, what do the elementals do? Torch tykes, at CR 1, are adept at imitating torches and, in Porphyra, are often kept as a kind of slave/utility kept by erkunae commoners to ignite hearth fires, for heat, light, etc.
Rock Runts, at CR 1, gain earth glide and earth mastery and may trip Medium creatures – cranky and not too nice, they are still employed due to their earth gliding in mining operations and beyond. Also at CR 1, water wimps may dazzle foes by squirting water in their eyes, drench up to Medium fires and get water mastery – carefree and often seen in the care of fishers, they are pretty much what you get when you think “water sprite.”
Also at CR 1, wind wisps get air mastery and the ability to impose minor penalties to concentration and Perception via their ability to ruffle. Whimsical and light-hearted, they exhibit a curious obsession with erkusaan dragons and their uses.
Editing and formatting are very good, I noticed no glaring glitches. Layout adheres to Purple Duck Games’ 1-column standard in 6” by 9” and as such, is relatively printer-friendly if you’re printing more pages on one sheet of paper. The pdf sports no artworks, but does feature bookmarks, n spite of its brevity – nice.
Perry Fehr’s tine elementals are nice – they have whimsical little abilities befitting their stature and the inclusion of unique tricks here is to be lauded. While they did not blow me utterly away, at the more than fair price point, this is well worth getting. My final verdict will clock in at 4 stars for this good little file.
You can get these tiny elementals for a tiny price here on OBS!
