The Hero's BastardRite Publishing has released The Hero’s Bastard for the Pathfinder RPG system.  The PDF contains a monster that is produced when a hero falls from grace.  Rules are uncluded for several other d20 suppliments, including d20 Modern and Call of Cthulhu d20.

It’s interesting to me that people would be willing to pay $2 for a 4 page PDF containing 1 monster for an RPG.  Considering how many full-book PDFs can be found for around $20 or less, this doesn’t seem like a great deal.

I have to admit there is certain appeal to this monster, though. The idea of a hero turning into something terrible after making some wrong choices in life is something that could be well exploited in a good campaign.
