Van Richten's Guide to the Ancient Dead
Author: Skip Williams
Summary of content:
Interesting book, expanding a lot on the mummy concept. Now they come in many new forms, and often can’t be recognized as mummies, which is a great asset for an evil DM. However, where is the psychology discussion for these? That would have been useful, IMHO, to make them less shambling life-crushing undead.
The ranks are well made, making a 2 hit dice mummy possible – great for low level parties.
There is a long cheesy explanation on planar connection (mummies are connected to the positive plane material, while the others undead are closer to the negative plane)…
3 on 5.
