You know the drill by now - 3 pages of content, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, 1 page content, so let's check this out!

This pdf provides us with 7 feats designed for our favorite undying menaces, to be precise:

-Disturbing Movements: Witnessing a creature move may make you shaken. Silent Hill/ The Ting and similar Japanese horror, anyone? Very cool!

-Fulminate: The undead creature detonates upon death, and, even cooler, reform after some time if your remains aren't dealt with.

-Mist Walk: Dimension door between areas of dim light and shadow - a staple of horror literature, cinema and my own home game. Nice! Plus the name is probably an homage to Ravenloft, which is also cool. I don't get why the feat has incorporeal or gaseous form and a steep 12 HD as a prerequisite, though.

-Putrid Spray: When you take damage, you may spray slimy doom-carrying putrid pus at your foes. Ew!

-Shadow Minion: Detach a creature's shadow as a minion to do its bidding. cool feat, though I would have loved to see a mechanic to make the shadow tougher.

-Staggering Consequences: When hit by any type of energy, the undead are thereafter shrouded for a limited time in the energy, dealing damage of the appropriate type to adjacent spaces.

-Weapon Bind: Undead creatures with this feat have a chance of weapons staying stuck in them, forcing foes to either abandon them or waste precious time trying to pull them free.

Conclusion: Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn't notice any glitches. Layout adheres to SGG's 3-column horizontal standard and the pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length. The concepts of these feats are great and iconic, since they utilize some of the best-known stunts undead pull off and provide rules for them. However, I also feel that the HD-prerequisites for Mistwalk are too steep and that a way to improve one's shadow companion would have been nice. The pdf per se is great, the feats are cool and the price is fair, but when directly compared to e.g. the stellar BP on feats of flying, the undead fall slightly short. Hence, I'll settle on a final verdict of 4.5 stars, rounded down to 4.

Endzeitgeist out.
