None so Vile - Disciples of Darkness II: Soul Harvester $3.75 $1.50
Publisher: Blackdirge Publishing

None So Vile - Disciplines of Darkness II: Soul Harvester by Black Dirge Publishing / Skeleton Key Games presents a new D20 Prestige Class, the Soul Harvester.

The Soul Harvester is introduced with a page and a half of fiction, showing one in action. The Soul Harvester is a clerical-based prestige class, a servant of a dark god (or power) who draws power from the sacrifice of victims. The ability to draw power from sacrifices is called Soul Harvesting (naturally) and is gathered in essence points, the maximum amount of which is limited by the Soul Harvester?s level. These essence points may be spent to gain bonuses, additional weapon abilities and spell casting boosts. The only problem is that they can be spent to add metamagic effects to a spell at a flat essence cost, so adding maximize costs as much as silent, this is easily abusable (and easily fixed by making the cost per level added by the metamagic effect, which simply makes it powerful but not overwhelming).

The Soul Harvester?s sacrificial weapon gains abilities and gives the Harvester virtual feats when it is used, this is limited by restricting it to a light slashing or piercing weapon. Overall the HD, Base Attack, Saves and Spell Casting seem well balanced with a limited number of special ability (including Dread Mark which can consign a marked soul to the Soul Harvester?s dark master).

Advice of the role of Soul Harvesters in a world and how they can best be played is provided for a DM. Along with an example Soul Harvester, Jukko Ironscourge, a hobgoblin Cleric/Soul Harvester is present along with full background and personality. As is the dark god worshiped by Jukko, Nurrog Bahl, the Crimson Harvester, Elfreaper.

A well put together product, if you wish for a villain that consumes the souls of his enemies. But it does have a dark tone that may be blacker then some DM?s wish for their campaign.
