    Default Exemplars of Evil

    Just got the book today, but haven't really taken a good look at it yet.

    Has anyone else bought this? What did you think?

    I like it because it does exactly what I thought it would, and that it details villain creation. It also works great with the Elder Evils book.

    I saw that one at the store, too, and I was very tempted. I would've gotten both, but, not enough cash.

    Yes, EE, it is a book about villains. Sorry, missed your first post somehow.

    Alright, in that case it is great, however most of the villians are better as lesser villians serving a greater power. The orc villian in the beggining is my favorite, while the pirates act as a great secondary villian (make sure you mention him to the PCs when they are still low level so when they fight them their are horrified) , the two evil siblings work well if the PCs can see the true depth of their insanity. I forget the rest

    I bought it and I really like it. I'm particularly enamored because several of the villains work perfectly for my setting. Likewise for Elder Evils, which I purchased last weekend.

    Exemplars of Evil was my first (and last) WotC supplement for 3.5 D&D

    I don't really buy supplements, and with the exception of a few third party ones, I'd rather buy complete games and cannibalize what I can use from there. Exemplars of Evil was an exception since it was a christmas present.

    I liked the Villians described there. A lot.

    However, it really bugged me that, in order to use them (as written) I would have to buy about 10 other WotC supplements.

    Really, I believe there is not a single core character inside.

    Still, I am going to adapt the bugbear pirate with a monster living in its hold for my campaign.
