The inimitable Endzeitgeist has posted up his thoughts on Mythic Monsters X: Sea Monsters on his review site, and it looks like this is his favorite yet in the series! One of his favorite monsters was the brand-new Jorganth, inspired by a magnificent piece of art I received from Frank Hessefort for another product entirely but that I just had to find a way to make into a monster of its own.
At CR 8/MR 3, the new creature herein is the Jorganth. Oh boy – first of all – the one-page artwork of this beast is one of the finest artworks I’ve seen in ages – a vast, eel-like, tentacle studded deep-sea predator aberration from the oceans of the lands of the fey. Electrical fields, capability to emit deadly beams, reflexive attacks and the ability to create will-o’-the-deep servants and feed on fear – this creature is glorious in its statblocks and the superb full-blown write-up superbly supplements one of the best creatures I’ve seen in quite a while, even within the exalted ranks of the new creatures Legendary Games provides for the Mythic Monster series. The full-blown fluff that accompanies it makes it oh so much more awesome and I stand by the claim that Paizo’s bestiaries would be so much more awesome if they all featured proper full-blown write-ups like this one does. This beast made me come up with 3 adventures while reading its entry – without trying in any way. That good.
As for the book as a whole, here was his summary:
Jason Nelson and Alistair Rigg have surpassed themselves herein – the creatures are so cool, so iconic, I don’t ever want to use their non-mythic equivalents ever again. Ever since the advent of Mythic Adventures, I’ve used the rules to make bosses more challenging in my game (they tend to get killed in 2 rounds or less otherwise…) and these beings just blow my mind. The unique, cool abilities this pdf offers for so many creatures just can be considered glorious, even before the new creature, which is just the icing on the awesome cake. This installment, in spite of the lack of bookmarks, is so far the apex of the series for me and is well-worth 5 stars + seal of approval and should be considered a must-buy for anyone running aquatic adventures – this pdf is worth the asking price for ability-scavenging alone. That good. Get it.
