There are some very good things and some not so good things about this product. If Skortched Urf ever makes a print book of Fursona I do expect that this material is added in with what is already present for a really complete book. However, they continue the trend of adding in what I personally consider inappropriate and unnecessary material

First we'll get the bad stuff out of the way so I can focus on what is good about this product. Again with the sexually explicit material which I said in my review of the first book did not need to be here as not everyone appreciates or wants such material in their games. How many times must this be highlighted as a negative till the company gets the message that it unnecessarily hurts the product overall?

I've said my piece on what should not go into the final print version, if the company REALLY wants that material somewhere I suggest that you make it a separate file and the material will be marketable to a wider audience. I don't want to rain on the parade so to speak but I like the material as a whole so much that I want to see this get into the hands of as many people as possible. And by this I mean it needs to be accessible for all to most ages.

Now with that said, this is a really good supplement for Fursona, yes you need the first book to make full use of this product but the expansion it gives is needed. Two of the new orders I really like for two different reasons, with the one I like because I was looking to use the first book to make turtles to begin with and one of the orders allows for just such a character and for that I must applaud their efforts. The other order is for recreating the kinds of beings almost every single one of us has read about since our childhood and for sheer whimsy I welcome their inclusion with open arms.

In conclusion, if you want to seriously make anthropomorphic animals a part of a given campaign this needs to be at your ready disposal. Again I say there needs to be a printed book with material from both books included as the way this system is set up, it's flexible enough to customize a character enough to satisfy almost any palette and give a wealth of options for moth GMs and Players something new and exciting to explore. Just a fair warning, there are still elements here that I would not allow in mixed company, in my own campaign unless the players and game master specifically agree that they are OK with the sexually explicit elements contained within, I would not allow it in any campaign I would run, but that said I do heartily recommend this product for purchase.
