  • Crawthorne’s Catalog of Creatures: Storm Serpent This installment of the Crawthorne’s Catalog of Creatures series clocks in at 5 pages – the front cover containing the header, creature artwork and the social media icons/homepage of misfit studios. The SRD takes up 1 1/3 pages and the editorial is in a sidebar – to get all the material you thus have to print out the cover with the icons as well.   So, what is the storm serpent? Well, in short, it is a CR 10 magical beast that has an interesting assortment of abilities: They can basically cause their bite attack at range via concussive bolts (failing to specify the damage type, alas) and, as a standard action, they may […]

  • Crawthorne’s Catalog of Creatures: Infected Zombie This installment of the Crawthorne’s Catalog of Creatures series clocks in at 6 pages – the front cover containing the header, creature artwork and the social media icons/homepage of misfit studios. The SRD takes up 1 page and the editorial is in a sidebar – to get all the material you thus have to print out the cover with the icons as well.   The infectious zombie is a pretty popular trope and this pdf reimagines them as a template – as presented, the template renders a creature that has acquired it a neutral undead (interesting choice!) – HD gained from class levels or racial HD are dropped and replaced with d8s, with sizes […]

  • Crawthorne’s Catalog of Creatures: Imperial Land Griffon This installment of the Crawthorne’s Catalog of Creatures series clocks in at 5 pages – the front cover containing the header, creature artwork and the social media icons/homepage of misfit studios. The SRD takes up about 1.5 pages and the editorial is in a sidebar – to get all the material you thus have to print out the cover with the icons as well.   So, what is the land griffon? Well, according to the nice cover artwork they are basically non-airborne griffon with bird-like forelegs – as such, their carrying capacity is reduced – which is something I like. However, containing attribute modifications via class features, it would have been nice to […]

  • Crawthorne’s Catalog of Creatures: Werespider This pdf clocks in at 5 pages, with the front cover sporting the beautiful full-color artwork of the werespider as well as the social media icons and misfit studios-logo and the editorial on the second page; the SRD covers almost 2 pages, with the second page offering about 1/5 of rules-texts from the builds – overall, I am not a big fan of this presentation, since printing out the pdf does mean you have to waste ink on the SRD-page and the front cover material. On the plus-side, there is actually some flavor text on the first page.   The eponymous monster hunter Crawthorne does get to have a say on werespiders as presented here. […]

  • Crawthorne’s Catalog of Creatures: Carnivorous Coin (aka Abroa) The first installment of the inexpensive creature-supplement-series by Misfit Studios clocks in at 5 pages, with 1 3/4 pages of SRD and the creature’s artwork alongside the header and contact/social site info on the first page, taking up about 1/3 of the space, while editorial information is on page 2 alongside product identity and the declaration of open game content – I’m not a big fan of this layout decision since I tend to print out books and thus, the cover features quite a bit unnecessary ink/toner used in vain…but what about the creature?   The carnivorous coin, or abroa on its own is a CR 1/2 aberration that is fine and […]
