I think the best part of Horror Adventures are the Corruptions. The compleity they add to role-playing is just too much fun for everyone.

Matt takes a look at the Ultimate Intrigue from Paizo. It features the Vigilante Class, verbal duels and intrigue systems to enhance your game. I think I will use verbal duels and the leadership system the most.

The tale of a clever rogue and her angelic partner pit against a centaur army
PATHFINDER TALES: Shy Knives
By Sam Sykes
Tor Books and Paizo are pleased to announce a new and original novel set in the Pathfinder universe: PATHFINDER TALES: Shy Knives (A Tor Trade Paperback; $14.99; On-sale October 18, 2016) by Sam Sykes.
Shy Ratani is a clever rogue who makes her living outside of strictly legal methods. While hiding out in the frontier city of Yanmass, she accepts a job solving a nobleman’s murder, only to find herself sucked into a plot involving an invading centaur army that could see the whole city burned to the ground. Shy could stop that from happening, but doing so would involve revealing herself to the former friends who now want her dead. Add in an aristocratic partner with the literal blood of angels in her veins, and Shy quickly remembers why she swore off doing good deeds in the first place.
Onitama is a two player abstract game based on the complexity of a Martial Arts fight. With a random set up the players use their cards to move and outwit their opponent. This wrestling match relies on the card players were dealt at the beginning of the game.
It is part of the Dice Tower Essentials line.
Codenames can now be played with pictures! Whimsical, mind-twisting illustrations are used instead of word cards. Can you find one word that ties your team’s pictures together?
Can be played with or instead of the original Codenames. The rules of the game are the same: Two rival spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple pictures on the table. Their teammates try to guess pictures of their color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team.
