Today is the beginning of Friendship Week here at Necromancers of the Northwest, an entire week devoted to the power of love, harmony, and just plain getting along. And there are few people who make for a more loyal and worthwhile friend than today’s Exotic Encounter, Jann Shieldmate, Devoted Bodyguard.
Necromancers of the Northwest is proud to announce the release of our latest book, Weekly Wonders: Giant Bloodlines. Currently available at drivethrurpg, paizo.com, and d20pfsrd.com, here's what the back of the book has to say:
Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum, I Smell the Blood…of Giants!
Giants are fearsome and iconic fantasy foes, but very rarely do player characters get a chance to enjoy the bulk, power, and pure destructive capabilities that being a giant has to offer. While there is room for debate about some types of giants, such as hill giants and ogres, other species, like fire and storm giants, are clearly magical in nature. Yet no sorcerer bloodline exists for players who want to have characters descended from giants…until now!
This book introduces four giant-themed bloodlines for sorcerers. Featured are the fire giant, the frost giant, the stone giant, and the storm giant. In addition to providing elemental powers associated with the type of giant in question—such as the ability to create massive earthquakes or avalanches, or to control storms and seas, or create great clouds of ash and smoke—these bloodlines also grant players giant power, granting them some of the strength and size of giants.
Whether you want to play a giant-blooded character with an exciting new bloodline, just want to expand your sorcerer’s bloodline options, or are a GM looking for just the right thing to spice up a giant shaman or mage’s stat-block, this book is for you.
Look forward to next Friday's release, which gives you mythic versions of two oft-neglected giants, which rule the sand and the seas!
Today’s Magic Market provides a trio of weapons that are all about change—and not just changing living foes to dead ones. Whether you’re turning your enemies into small, defenseless animals, turning yourself and your foes both to stone, or turning water into fire, there’s lots of excitement to be had with these unusual weapons.
Today’s Obscure Arcana pays homage to magnificent forces of nature, magical in their own right, but even more potent when shaped with these magnificent spells. Grab your druid and get to casting these spells to wrap your foes in thorny vines, cause a gentle rain, or even become a friend to the woodland creatures.
It’s time to get arcane! Today’s Best in Class features a selection of new arcanist exploits, which allow these magic specialists to bend and shape spells to their will.
