Quirin Mythology #1: A Handful Epic Creatures presents five new epic monsters. Despite the small number of creatures, a very diverse range of themes and challenge ratings are presented here. Two of these listings are for unique individuals. One is a race that could conceivably exist in any fantasy campaign world. Another is a new demon, and the last is an abomination, god-spawned creatures that are spurned by their divine parents. Following these entries are a new weapon/shield property, two specific magic items, and a new spell.

Each monster has a single picture of it in black and white. The entries detail not just stats and combat abilities, but also background text, appearance, round-by-round tactics, and adventure hooks. Likewise, the new spell at the end has a picture done of what it would look like in-character (done in a very creative fashion).

This product is a superb addition to the epic-level tradition of d20 fantasy. All of the monsters here are interesting, and well worth their challenge ratings. They do an excellent job of opening up new ideas, all the more so since they have adventure hooks and background text given for them. The only reason I didn?t give this product a five star rating was because there are some mechanical errors (though they?re nothing major), and because, perhaps because English isn?t (I assume) the first language of the author, a sentence of two reads oddly. But these are, for the most part, minor quibbles on what is otherwise an excellent product. I recommend this to anyone venturing into the realm of epic-level play. <br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
