While this template is interesting, who in their right mind would waste a feat slot on taking this? If you look like that monster in the picture you'd never be able to go to any civilised cities. I'm thinking the publishers thought that only NPC's would take that and evil scholars. Also, the Vampire template is really nice and yet it has no level adjustment. So if a player wanted to make a higher level character start with the vampire template...what do i say? No? It gives you a slew of benefits whilst no level adjustment. I dont know, I think its overpowering, I wouldnt let my players take it.
