The Harvester of Sorrow is an undead creature and uses a sonic ability to make other people aggrieved, a new condition similar to the confused condition and a linear 4 round progression – I.e. after 4 rounds, the creature gains a new save. This might seem a bit powerful, but I still like the idea of the condition. Harvesters also get a new disease they transmit via their bite. They come in two variations, the regular harvesters (CR 4) and Dread Harvesters (CR 6), the latter also getting a nice aura ability. The creatures are quite interesting in that they are rather physically weak undead but can disrupt or potentially kill a lot of PCs/people via their wail and aura. On the downside, though, the disease mentions having an effect of 1d4, but does not specify the attribute it damages, rendering it unusable.

Conclusion:

Layout is beautiful and once again, the artwork rocks. While I encountered some minor editing glitches and typos, there are not too many. I liked the new condition, although its 4-round progression-cycle limits its potential usability with other creatures. On the other hand, the disease does not work as written, which is a big problem. My final verdict will thus be 2.5 stars, rounded down to 2.
