For the psychic, spell and feat-selection as well as discipline-choice and phrenic amplifications constitute major decisions that provide diversity and indeed, the pdf does a GREAT job here. Granted, there are some cases of straight-progressions to be found, you’ll still find a rather nice diversity of foci regarding the respective characters. While the flavor-text is pretty minimalistic, the tactics-section for the characters is rather extensive, which makes using them on the fly rather simple.
As you know, I tend to not pick apart every creature statblock, but I do pick apart a couple of them in a given file – and more often than not, I notice a small hiccup here and there…sometimes a big one. I care primarily about whether a statblock can be used by the GM sans violating x tenets or botching some crucial things. When I started picking apart these…I found nothing. No glitch. I picked apart the next one…same game. This may sound like it’s an easy thing…it’s not.
Julian Neale’s psychics herein may be on the short side regarding their fluff when compared to Purple Duck Games’ more evocative codices, but the wildly diverse builds herein are exceedingly refined and polished – and for that I really enjoyed this pdf. While I wished it had covered the missing two archetypes as well, this is at best a minor hiccup considering the diversity otherwise exhibited. My final verdict will hence clock in at 5 stars.
You can pick up this celebrated collection at the Legendary Games webstore for just 2 dollars this week, as it will be announced tomorrow as our TWO$DAY product of the week (but you can get it a day early)!
