In this Flip Through Matt takes a look at Pathfinders Ultimate Magic from Paizo.  While this book isn’t new it is to Matt so he is sharing.

All in all it’s a good book.  I think at this point some of the material can be expanded upon, but it’s still a solid foundation for growth.

PATHFINDER RPG: BOOK OF THE DAMNED EXPLORES THE WORKINGS OF THE POWERFUL FORCES OF EVIL

Now Available for Pre-Order, Book of the Damned Takes Players from the Darkest Depths of the Demon-Haunted Abyss, to the Apocalyptic Realm of Abaddon and the Infernal Layers of Hell Itself
REDMOND, WA (March 23, 2017): Paizo Inc., publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, announces today the forthcoming Pathfinder RPG: Book of the Damned hardcover rulebook will be released September 2017 and is now available for pre-order (MSRP $44.99).

The denizens of the evil planes of existence have long tempted, tormented, and tortured mortal life. From the lowliest imp to the mightiest demon lord, these realms are ripe with horrors and festering with threats to body, mind, and soul, and the routes to knowing these blasphemous secrets are held within the infamous pages of the Book of the Damned.

With details on demon lords and arch devils, information on the realms of Hell, Abaddon, and the Abyss, and rules for incorporating fiendish influences into the game—be they in the form of foes for heroic parties to face, or temptations for less scrupulous adventurers to consider—Pathfinder RPG: Book of the Damned explores the workings of these powerful forces of evil, focusing on the numerous demigods that influence mortal life and the countless fiends who prey upon the living and dead alike. Pathfinder RPG Book of the Damned includes:

  • Information on the sinister boons granted to worshipers of dozens of fiendish demigods drawn from the planes of Abaddon, the Abyss, and Hell, including Archdevils, Demon Lords, and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
  • An exploration of the infernal realms of Hell, the sinister reaches of Abaddon, and the bottomless rifts of the Abyss.
  • New feats, spells, magic items, and prestige classes for use by characters who both fight against and serve the forces of darkness.
  • Rules for infernal contracts and sinister rituals.
  • Statistics for several never-before revealed fiends and lavishly-illustrated in-world excerpts from the pages of the notorious Book of the Damned itself.

Book of the Damned fills my dark soul with devilish delight,” says Paizo Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Erik Mona. “Demons, devils, and darkness are always popular topics around the Pathfinder game table, and Book of the Damned arms players with tools to fight against (or alongside) these paragons of evil, adding a demoniacal twist to any Pathfinder campaign. Are your players taking a trip to Hell? Don’t Satanic Panic! Book of the Damned has all the infernal answers you’re looking for!”

Book of the Damned is a dark and beautiful new hardcover tome for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. For additional information, visit Paizo.

Ultimate Intrigue Review

20161229_115649Ultimate Intrigue

Published by Paizo Publishing

The latest of the Ultimate series books is packed with a ton of themed information. This is a gem for any espionage player or GM. Ultimate Intrigue features the Vigilante base class, new archetypes, feats, intrigue systems, social combat, new spells, and gear.

Vigilante base class has some pretty cool perks. The first and the coolest is the ability to have dual identities – like Batman! The class has the option for each identity to have a different alignment. My GM would have a lot of fun with that concept, and as a player it would be a great challenge to role-play. Beyond that you get to pick a path of specialization as an avenger or a stalker. An avenger gains an attack bonus equal to the character level, while a stalker capitalizes on stealth to gain 1d8 precision damage on flanked, flat-footed or otherwise unaware foes. This increases 1d8 every two levels. There are also several Vigilante talents. My favorite has to be Blind Spot. It allows the character to hide from creatures with special senses like Tremor Sense. That’s something I could have used in my last adventure.

There are of course several new archetypes in Ultimate Intrigue, and while many of them are specialized most can be used without too much difficulty. My favorite is the Guild Breaker, a Ranger who specializes in taking down an enemy organization. The difference is that the bonuses they get are applied to an enemy organization instead of to a favored enemy. This archetype also gets Deep Cover, which allows bonuses to Bluff and Disguise against the enemy organization.
