Blood of Angels and Magnimar, City of Monuments
If you've ever read Scar Night, you might think that actually that's a pretty compelling scenario. And even if you don't, the notion of fallen angels is, of course, heavily ingrained in our collective mythological lexicon. And the notion of pitching aasimar as nephilim appeals to me greatly. So much so that I might even officially make it a possibility for DARK•HERITAGE. And when a book makes me consider adding a new, potentially significant element to my setting because it's got something that I like, well, I call that a success.
But despite that seemingly negative approach, I thought the book was well done, and I think Magnimar is a great resource for anyone running a Golarion game, or even a regular D&D game in another setting. It's especially nice if you're going to run one of the adventure paths that spend a significant amount of time in the city, like Rise of the Runelords or Shattered Star.
