Black Lords of the Marsh by Super Genius Games

This product is 29 pages long. It starts with a cover and intro. (1 ½ pages)

The Dragons ( 26 ½ pages) There is full stat blocks for 13 dragons in this book at CR 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 19. Each CR listing has 3 sample hoards for fast, medium and slow progression. A section on suggested tactics the dragon could use to make them more dangerous and final a section on alternative builds. Such as swapping out feats or what have you. These finally sections where very well done, with some good advice for the most part, with some interesting optional builds. The hoards where pretty simple but that’s understandable considering they are doing 3 for each dragon.

It ends with a OGL and credits. (1 pages)

Closing thoughts. I will be totally honest, this is mostly a book of stat blocks and I am not a huge number cruncher. I went over the stat blocks and nothing stood out to me as obviously wrong, I will as I mentioned not great at that so I fully admit I could have missed errors in the stat blocks. I am more of a if it looks right I just go with it type GM and not worry if the stat blocks are perfect. With that said I didn't notice any big errors in the stat blocks. The art is a mix, there is color, black and white and computer 3D art. The quality is also a mix, from pretty meh to very good and everything in between. The editing and layout was good. So whats my rating? Well if you are looking for complete stat blocks, advice, tactics for black dragons look no further than here. If that appeals to you then I highly recommend this product. I am going to settle on a 4 star though. Mostly cause while it accomplishes what it claims and does it well. I wasn't wowed either. I honestly think the section on alternate builds, advice etc needed to be bigger. Especially on the older dragons. I think the first half needed another half page and the later ones a full page. I think that would have helped make this product better. So I think it is a good product that could have been even better.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.
