Review – Player Races: Dragon Men

26 November, 2011

If your Savage Worlds campaign has a place for dragon men, this product will have a wealth of useful material to do so.  It provides a number of tools for crafting the specific type of dragon men you need in your campaign world.

Player Races: Dragon Men is a 6-page PDF for the Savage Worlds RPG written by Steven Trustrum and published by Misfit Studios.  This is part of Misfit Studio’s Officially Licenced Savage Worlds material.

The layout is primary traditional two columns with a few full color illustrations scattered throughout, and everything is clear and easily readable.  A separate printer friendly file of the product is provided with all of the art replaced with black and white line art.

Dragon Men begins with an introduction to this product and it intentions, which is to present the dragon men as a playable race for Savage World in a loose format to be easily adapted to most campaign worlds.

The dragon men have a basic type and come in a variety of subtype based on the dragon from other Misfit Studio Monster Briefs but are mostly self explanatory.  One new hindrance and a variety of ten ‘breeding hindrances’ which are more or less specific to the dragon men are provided (and taking at least one of the breeding hindrances is required by the dragon man package).  One new combat edge and twenty-three (!) racial edges including breath weapons and more.  Lastly there is a new armor type for the dragon men (Dragon Man Scourge armor) and two small cone templates round out the product.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
