Review – Finwicket’s Bestiary- Along the Faerie Path

10 June, 2012

Finwicket’s Bestiary- Along the Faerie Path provides a look into the lands of faerie along with some of its denizens.  It is a useful resource for those who wish to make wider use of Faerie in their campaign.

Finwicket’s Bestiary- Along the Faerie Path is a Campaign Cog sourcebook for the Pathfinder RPG written by Christopher Correll, Allen Taliesin, and Mike Welham and published by Clockwork Gnome Publishing.  It comes with a beautiful full artwork version in color and a just text version.  Also included are a set of Hero Lab files for the contents.

It starts with a look at the faerie realm and how to get there through magical and other means (and, sometimes more important, how to get back).  Additionally information on the Nowhere Dimension is presented.

Next are four fae creatures, each has an introductory piece of fiction setting up the potential use of the beings:

The Faerie Seer who can look through time and can be a valuable source of information, if they can be convinced to help.

The Harvest Haunt, a fae that means well but can bring disaster in its wake.

The Spindler, who make the most wonderful clothes, so wonderful they can cause immense reactions in those who view them.  However, they can be driven into a rage by those who refuse to wear their wonderful creations.

The Thin Men, assassins of the fae courts, moving through cracks in the walls to find and kill their target.

The fae range from a CR of 4 to 7 though only the Thin Man is designed for an exclusively combat encounter.

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.
