Review – Kith of the Harpy Queen

11 March, 2012

If you like the harpy, or have never been exactly sure how to fit them into your campaign, this product will give you the ability to place harpies in a wide range of adversarial roles: combat, social, background threat even magical danger.  If these winged dangers interest you, give this product a look.

Mythic Menagerie: Kith of the Harpy Queen is a 13-page PDF (11-pages if you remove the cover and credits/OGL page) for the Pathfinder RPG written by Owen K. C. Stephens and published by Super Genius Games.  This is part of Super Genius Games’ Mythic Menagerie line.

The layout is traditional 2-columns design after the introduction, conforming to the standard bestiary format.  The cover is full color with of the creatures and magic items having its own black and white illustration.

After a one page introduction, it moves directly to the six new harpy kin, ranging from the socially focused (the glory harpy), to magical empowered (storm harpy), disease bearing (pestilence harpy) and a variety of those combat skilled (cave harpy, Pazuzu’s chosen, and piasa), with CR from 2 to 14.  A good variety of options for many types of encounters, each type of harpy has its own variant on the harpy’s song (except for the glory harpy).

Five harpy-associated magic items, including the nasty feathered dagger and the sweetest perfume, six feats usable by harpies or similar creatures, and five new spells playing on the nature of the harpy.

All in all, if you have thought of using harpies in your campaign this product will give you tools to make adventures dealing with them much more interesting.

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.
