Blackdyrge's Bestiary: About the Author (Revised)
Publisher: Blackdirge Publishing

Blackdyrge?s Bestiary: About the Author is a PDF supplement from SkeletonKey Games. The zipped file is three-quarters of a megabyte in size, and contains a single PDF which is marginally larger. The PDF itself is eight pages long, including a single page for the cover, one for the credits/legal, and one for the OGL. There is no table of contents or bookmarks.

The product has a full-color cover, and several pieces of black-and-white interior artwork, including pictures of Blackdyrge himself. Each page has borders along the top and bottom, with each corner of the borders having information about the book itself; this is explained in greater detail in a sidebar on the credits/legal page. There is no printer-friendly version of the book.

The book opens with Blackdyrge?s statistics, which take up roughly one-and-a-half pages in length. This is followed by his personal history, and then diverges into his appearance, personality, combat abilities, and finally lair. A sidebar also discusses the treasure he has, including a new wondrous magic item.

Because part of the allure of this product is in learning the history of this rather infamous character, I won?t go into any specifics about Blackdyrge himself, but suffice it to say, this product paints a thorough portrait of him, revealing the reasons for his bestiary line of tomes, and what he hopes to accomplish with them. If the PCs are being killed by monsters detailed in his books, then this is an excellent supplement to pick up should they seek out the mysterious writer himself. There is a lot GM?s could do with the character of Blackdyrge when they learn About the Author.


LIKED: The character of Blackdyrge is very well done.

DISLIKED: Blackdyrge's stat block notwithstanding, the only new crunch here is a single magic item. Because of that, GMs not planning on using Blackdyrge in their game may not get much use out of this book.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied
