It has a new spell, Instant Armor. It can create armor on you and replaces what ever you was wearing. At 5th level it starts as chain mail, then banded, half-plate, full plate. You can choose to create a enhanced version of a lower armor if high enough level. For example if you could make full plate, you could make that or +1 half-plate, +2 banded or +3 chain. The other thing is this section is a new dark elf god to replace Lolth with. Very similar to that iconic god.
It ends with a OGL. (2 pages)
Closing thoughts. The art work is black and white quarter sized images for each race. They ranged from ok to pretty good. Editing and layout was ok, I noticed a few minor errors. Things like the first letter bolded in a word that follows a bolded word or things like that. Nothing to hurt understanding the product. I was disappointed that the stat blocks where not included, I know they are in the bestiary but I still felt they should have been included. Most of the racial traits where pretty cool, a few was meh and some was just ok. Same for the class options.
With that said I did like the book, so if you are looking for new PC races this is worth picking up. I do home they do more and possible create some. Maybe a half-nymph or half-dryad etc. I wouldn't even mind seeing for some of the stronger races, them to have base stats and then some racial levels for those that want to play such races in the future. So what's my rating? I am going to give it a 3.5 star, I think it is a solid book for those wanting more race options.
Trust me, I'm a Succubus.
