Closing thoughts. The art work is a mix of Black and White and color, it ranges from meh to pretty good. Layout and editing are good I didn't notice any errors. While I don't agree with all the skill uses I do like the vast majority of them. They add to the game while not adding to the complexity or introducing any new mechanic to the game. Both are a big plus when wanting to add interesting options to the game quickly. Really I have nothing negative to say about this product beyond I wasn't sold on all the new skill uses but I am sure others will like the ones I wasn't fond of and vise versa. So what's my rating? Well not find a flaw to speak of I am giving this one a 5 star review. It is just a well done and very easy to use product that can add a lot to a existing game.
Trust me, I'm a Succubus.
