I usually like any free product, just because it's free! This one is also a lot of fun. Jack Smith IV and Poison Ivy Press present here a clever and enjoyable race suitable for PCs or NPCs/"monsters." This PDF presents an epic destiny for kroola PCs, four new generic kroola stat blocks, a klappa minion, and two new kroola PCs. The product also gives stats for the cutlass--missing from the original kroola product--and 2D tokens to use on the gaming table. You'll get a lot more than you pay for in this PDF!

It's not all perfect--there are still a number of annoying stylistic, typographical, or grammatical errors and inconsistencies. But I won't let these stop me from enjoying the kroola and using them as antagonists in my current seafaring campaign.

I give more details in a review at http://d20.heardworld.com/?p=395, but to cut right to the chase: the presentation quality of Koldbloods & Karnivores notably exceeds that of the original Kroola PDF, and the mechanical quality of both is pretty high. One thing still hasn't been resolved, though: the kannoneer's weapons from the first installment. That part still troubles me. Nevertheless, I recommend you download this product and also purchase its older sibling, The Kroola, if you have room in your campaign world for piratical anthropomorphic crocodiles.

Now THIS is how you fix a sourcebook.

The original sourcebook (available for $1.99 here at RPGNow) provided a fantastic insight into these swashbuckling reptiles, however, the actual crunch behind the book had a few mistakes, mainly grammatical, and a couple of rule inconsitencies (which are fixed in this book) and a racial proficiency with a weapon that did not exist in the PHB, or any sourcebook to date!

That has all been fixed and more.

This expansion has good, solid grammar throughout, clarifies some rules from the ealier sourcebook, adds a new epic destiny to your (sadly and inevitably doomed to madness) characters, and adds the missing weapon, along with battle counters, new characters, encounter groups, and more, all for free! A fantastic free download, which is only made better by going and purchasing the previous sourcebook to make the race available to PCs.



Grab it, and the orginal sourcebook, laugh at the Nintendo references, and then read deeper into the race to see how tragic they truly are. A great addition to any 4th ed GM or Player arsenal.
