The Doll – CR2 Encounter with a Devil Doll. Lots of RPing, very nice.
The Snake in the Box – Ravid CR6 hard to explain but well done. Possibly very amusing.
The Haunted Organ – Grig CR3, Just like it sounds, have to deal with a haunted organ... sorta.
Lurkers in the Pool – Hydrodaemon CR8, something is in the water at the local bath house.
When Good Loot Goes Bad – Junk Elemental CR10. Hired to find a lost wand the PC's end up at a junk yard.
Additional Material (8 page)
There is two new feats, one new legendary item(noble dagger), Six full stat blocks of monsters to go along with the encounters as options, one full stat block NPC, Eight new spells all urban focused, two new magic items, and a new wizard school of sorts. City Magic, it is based on a wizard that learns magic from a city and gets a connection to urban settings.
Closing thoughts. The art is black and white and pretty good all and all, Editing and layout was well done. This one does not have a OGL, instead the OGL is a attached file in the zip file. Done for ease of printing. There is also a full set of paper tokens to be printed out for the monsters in the book. The encounters range from very well done to just pretty good, really the only one I was even remotely meh on was the Lurkers in the Pool, the rest where all very well done. I liked the new weapon, the stat blocks for NPC's and monsters was handy, the eight new spells where pretty interesting, the feats, magic items and City Magic where ok. They was solid but I wasn't blown away by them either.
So what's my rating? Well the encounters where on the whole very well done and most of the other material was as well. I didn't notice any obvious errors. So I am going to give this one a 5 star, if the topic interest you then I recommend picking it up.
Trust me, I'm a Succubus.
