Definitely worth the cost either individually or as part of the bundle. Ten new mutant creatures (six being plants or plant like) and many that are more than just wandering monsters, but domesticated and usable by post apocalyptic societies. Again, biggest complaint is the artwork, line drawings of the author's concept would be preferrable to the stock photos that are prevalent in these issues. But artwork aside, the creatures and there use are pretty solidy done and well thought out. Of the monsters listed, the dangling gourds would be the most interesting to inject into a game, either as a wandering threat or as a possible floating base for the PCs or their village. Perhaps a wild patch of hydro-roses is discovered nearby a desert village and the PCs are recruited to reclaim it as a new source of water fo the village. I do wish they offered more mountable creatures, though for an aquatic arc or campaign the monitor serpent will do. Otherwise, a solid issue and well worth it.

After being less than pleased with Issue #4, #5 comes along and cleanses the palate.

You get 10 new mutants (of which 6 are plants, and more monstrous flora is always welcome) and 2 new mutations. All interact with the campaign world in interesting ways, and I'll happily hork some for my own campaigns.

Other than some clunky grammar and a handful of editing mistakes, this is a snazzy supplement, well worth your $.99.

It's always nice to have more mutant critters, monsters and such for your PA RPG's, but not every encounter should necessarily be with some horrific monster that will outright slay the party. That's where Domesticated Creatures from WW#5 comes in. Some interesting mutant beasts,plants and such that can be discovered by your players in use with various NPC's, villages and such. I can see myself using "Philly's Stone" a mutant cactus that will shatter any weapon used to strike it in some cool encounters, and the Lemming Grass, that's just so outright bizarre that I think its kinda cool. So if you need a few beasties to add some interest to an NPC or village ya might want to check this issue out.
