Night Horrors: Conquering Heroes

I was especially eager to see this book coming. While unlike many people, I actually liked Beast the Primordial, I do agree it's not without its flaws, in particular regarding the antagonist section: while awesome as a crossover book, this game has very little to stand of its own, Heroes being the only type of villains, and being kinda underdevelopped. So I really was hoping for a new book to flesh them out, speak of the briefly mentioned "good" Heroes, and maybe even adding a new type of antagonist. Conquering Heroes did all of these things.

This book really does a great job at developping the Heroes, giving them a bit more depth and nuance: we even get a few sample ones with a decent Integrity score, showing not all of them are narcisstic egomaniacs (though we still get some of those). We get a variety of characters, and all of them have distinctive personnalities, methods and motivations, which really make some of them memorable. We even get some connecting to Hunters and Mages, creating ties to the other gamelines.

Not only that, but the book actually provides a new type of antagonists in the form of the Insatiable, which basically serve as an eviller counterpart to the Beasts. Now, some might feel like they are flat antagonists, but I think they offer a nice alternative to Heroes, and make for a good foil to prove Beasts aren't the worse evil in the setting.

Overall, a good addition to the main book. I highly recommand it.

The first full-sized sourcebook for Beast: the Primordial (after a solid Ready-made characters one), Night Horrors: Conquering Heroes is a collection of antagonists, but in classic Night Horrors fashion offers detailed, interesting elements for all of them. The book is divided in three parts: first Heroes, the titular characters who hunt Beasts (and are NOT Hunters, as a sidebar reminds us). Then Beasts, most of which have experienced the Inheritance (three types of transformation which usually turn into a Beast into something more suitable for NPCs). And finally, something entirely new - the Insatiables, a new type of creatures who hunt Beasts themselves. Each chapter is made of unique examples, all with interesting backstories and different approaches. A couple of new Heroic Gifts, Numina, and entirely new powers for the Insatiables can be found in there as well.

Beast being a new game, and one in which there is considerable freedom to create characters and antagonists, any new material helps and those many examples serve to enrich the game. I found the Heroes chapter offered different methods for them to hunt Beast, the Beast chapter made the Inheritances clearer, and the Insatiable offered an important new part of the Beast setting. Overall an excellent book which I can only recommend if you found Beast interesting.

Oh, and there's a killer clown.
