This is my review.
The book gives some mechanics on posession, but also the background and most importantly the role playing aspects of possession. Also the book gives small historical references to give possession it a historical feel.
Mosty, this book captured the feel of possession, something missing from 5th ed. It references other sources, which is a good sign, however it does not plaguarise them, but I think the author has refined and improved Monte Cooks possession rules from the book of vile darkness.
What makes something a fiend, a demon, a devil in popular lterature and horror literature is often the ability of the undead, demons and devils, elementals, spirits of all kind to posssess a body. The fear of possession was great in medeival past, across Europe, Africa and Asia. Possession by spirits and especially fiends is something I would have expected to be in the base rules for ANY fantasy role playing game but I can understand why the big game companies like Wizards might steer away from treating the subject in depth due to the risks of a backlash from conservative elemnts in society.
But someone needed to pick up and exploit this slack. So this Well done to the author.
I highly reccomend purchasing this, it is 33 pages, they are 33 very good quality pages that punch weigh above their page count weight.
