Troglodytes of the Tentacled One is the next supplement in the TRIBES series of supplements set in The Lonely Coast setting. This particular supplement is dedicated to a single tribe following an elder being illustrated in the style of H.P. Lovecraft and filled with new options for creating its troglodyte followers. The content delves into an immense amount of detail from ecology and religion to tactics and encounters details.
Raging Swan Press never ceases to amaze me with their publication quality and easy-to-read presentation of the content along with great looking illustrations and a lot of new stats. Each supplement brings about an in-depth look at a typical creature from Pathfinder making them 3-dimensional and filled with new options.
I’m a definite fan of the TRIBES series of supplements for Pathfinder. These supplements do a superb job of taking a normally mundane creature and turn them into a society with depth and purpose. Instead of encountering the same old bestiary from adventure to adventure, GMs can create a more role-playing styled encounter with all sorts of questing options and further details for campaign development. Troglodytes of the Tentacled One doesn’t sway from the regular series of TRIBES supplements and actually creates a more in-depth look at the troglodytes tribe as it only introduces a single tribe (as opposed to two or more). With the inclusion of only a single tribe, many more details can be introduced with a lot more stat blocks and creature character builds.
I highly recommend Troglodytes of the Tentacled One for any GM that wants to enhance their player’s experience by bringing in colorful bestiary rather than the simple mundane creatures that often found throughout. It’s a great addition to the TRIBES series of supplements and The Lonely Coast setting, but more importantly it contains a great set of new mechanics for encountering troglodytes anywhere.
