I do think some of their work is a little undertuned for my tastes, but I don't blame them for it (they have to overcome 3pp stigma) and the ideas they're coming up with are great.
Yeah, I always keep my hands on the dials as DM, rotating stuff up or down as needed. (I'm a big fan of flipping hit points to maximum or slashing it down to one hit away from dead, as needed, for mid-combat balance adjustments.)

But the Mimic Book of Mimic offering me, I think, six or seven additional mimics of different CRs and abilities is great for my purposes, even if I need to tweak something. (There's no way the bard isn't picking up the mimic lute, for instance.)

Can't vote in poll because it doesn't include a correct answer for our group. We use a third party book for item crafting rules. Not a player options book, nor a monster book. We've also used a third party adventure, which is also neither a monster book nor a players book. Weird poll options.
