Thus installment of the series devoted to the cult garbage-gobblers is 12 pages long, 1 page front cover, 4 2/3 pages of SRD (the last containing counters for all creatures featured herein), leaving 6 1/3 pages of content, so let's check it out!

In tradition of the series, we get a template-modified version of the Otyugh in two incarnations - one based on GOWs-magical beast version of the base-creature and one based on the core-rules. The template used this time is the typhoon-kissed template (CR +1), a remnant of a planar storm that ensures the creature has its own personal rain-storm. Neat idea.

We also get a sample environment to place the otyugh in, Stormgut island (EL 9), a place where a small war between a tribe of grindylows worshipping a typhoon-kissed otyugh and a bronze dragon are toughing it out - it's up to the PCs to stem the tide against the oytugh and his henchmen. A new magical shield is presented along 3 statblocks for grindylows.

Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn't notice any glitches. Layout adheres to the 2-column standard and features some nice b/w-artworks I wouldn't have expected at this low price-point. The pdf also features some nice bookmarks. This one is hard for me - I did like this installment of the otyughnomicon, but the template felt a bit less inspired than in the predecessors. On the other hand, the pdf is VERY cheap and makes for a purchase you won't regret. All in all, though, the igniting spark, the feeling of "Great idea"-didn't jump over. Sam Hing delivers a solid, good otyugh, template and stats, but not one that had me jump in excitement up and down. Thus, my final verdict will be 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4 due to the low price of the file.

Endzeitgeist out.
