||While "None So Vile: Disciples of Darkness I - The Ravenous of Agramogg" is presented in a way that any player of Dungeons & Dragons could use its material for character development, a Dungeon Master should be leery to allow a PC to access this prestige class. However, for a hideous and frightening non-player character, a DM can find quite a bit of inspiration and guidance in this product.
The ravenous of Agramogg is a 10-level prestige class designed for particularly nasty and villainous characters. The supplement begins with a gorgeous (if ink-heavy) cover, and then writer Aeryn Rudel takes charge with a gloriously deviant piece of game fiction to introduced the class. The prose is a bit clunky in places, but the imagery is solid, but can be a bit difficult to get through. That's not to say there's fault with the text itself; rather, the ravenous of Agramogg is a class built around the eating and consuming of other living, sentient creatures, and the story of a drow negotiator meeting with the only living character to have advanced through all ten levels of this prestige class pulls no punches.
After reading this supplement, as a DM, I now have a ready-to-use deviant and cannibalistic cult to insert into my ongoing D&D campaign. The amount of details and effort that writer Rudel has obviously put into this product is to be commended; one does not simply become a ravenous of Agramogg by making sure he or she has the right number of feats or can cast the correct number of certain-leveled spells. Instead, to enter into this prestige class, a character must partake in the Ceremony of Devouring, which just happens to involve the aspiring ravenous eating a living creature . . . over three days' time . . . that is, the victim must be kept alive through the entire process.
Normally, I don't gush as much in my reviews, but this supplement has left me not just speechless, but also has left me eager to insert this material into my own game.
LIKED: This is an incredible product, and the idea is quite unique. Very well-developed.
DISLIKED: A few comments are made throughout the text referencing the "Citadel of Consumption," a great temple devoted to the vile god Agramogg; some maps of this temple would have been appreciated.
VALUE: Very Satisfied
