Here's what folks are saying about other releases in the line...
from RPGNow Staff Reviewer Peter Ingham: "These variants and ideas can add some spice to the skeleton, and the flesh stealer skeleton can be quite creepy. Mechanics are generally good, and nothing presented is too outlandish."
from RPGNow Staff Reviewer Peter Ingham: "Overall, I enjoyed this pdf...This provides a more complete world-view to any campaign story, turning creatures encountered into more than just an encounter, but also a myth or a legend. The information can easily be incorporated into a campaign world..."
from RPGNow purchaser Mark Gedak: "Overall, I was pleased by this Behind the Monsters offering. The history provides a well-thought out explanation for the xorn's incursion on the Material plane, the behavioural area provides a couple of neat ideas for making the combat with the xorn be memorable and I like the magic item presented."
from Paizo forum member Fizzban: "All in all this was a great fluff piece that I enjoyed. I loved the new spin that was put on an odd idea. And I feel like you really knew how to add just the right amount of odd detail that makes the product really shine. Plus you can't beat the price. I would highly recommend this product, and if this is a taste of what’s to come I’d recommend the company as well."
