Zilvogel
August 16th, 2018

This week’s Exotic Encounters is for the birds. Specifically, for tropical birds with a silvery sheen to their feathers, and a penchant for theft. The only thing more beautiful about a zilvogel than its feathers is its song, but don’t lower your guard, or it might just leave you penniless.

 

Additionally, we regret to announce that the release of Weekly Wonders: Archetypes of Sin Volume V - Pride will be delayed. Expect it to be released by next Friday, August 24th, at the latest. Volume VI, scheduled for release next Friday, should not be affected.

 

 

 

Trance Master

August 14th, 2018

Hold onto your minds, or you might fall under the spell of this week’s new mesmerist archetype, the trance master. In this Best in Class, we explore the idea of a stareless mesmerist who uses a less powerful, but more versatile, array of de-buffs to place characters into trance states to suit any situation.

 

 

Weekly Wonders: Archetypes of Sin Volume IV - Lust

August 10th, 2018

Necromancers of the Northwest is proud to present Weekly Wonders: Archetypes of Sin Volume IV - Lust. Currently available at www.paizo.com, www.drivethrurpg.com, and www.d20pfsrd.com, here's what the back of the book has to say:

Brand new archetypes you’re sure to love!

Envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath. The temptation and allure of the seven deadly sins is undeniable. They have fascinated and tantalized audiences for centuries, and the idea of the seven deadly sins appears frequently in movies, books, games, and other media. They even have a role at the very heart of the Pathfinder Campaign Setting, and feature centrally in its most iconic Adventure Path. While sin magic is a famous part of the Pathfinder setting, and due to be revisited in an upcoming Adventure Path, there are other ways to gain power from the seven deadly sins. Each installment of Weekly Wonders: Archetypes of Sin presents several new archetypes tied to one of the seven deadly sins, allowing characters of various classes to tap into the power of sin.

For this book, we focus on the sin of lust. As with each of the seven deadly sins, lust can take many forms, and truly, each of us has our own unique secret and hidden desires. From dominance and submission to lust-inspiring performances and even the unbridled romantic passion of courtly love, the archetypes in this book explore themes of lust from a variety of vantage points. This book includes the following archetypes:

  • The lust singer, a bard archetype whose performances can inspire intense feelings of lust in audiences, and whose charms can be fueled by the victim’s own passions to last indefinitely.
  • The knight of the white rose, a paladin archetype devoted to the ideals of courtly love, who gains bonuses from pursuing her chosen paramour.
  • The pain giver, a slayer archetype that delights in giving and receiving pain.
  • The lust bloodline, for sorcerers, which provides a number of lust- and passion-themed abilities.
  • The phantom lover, a spiritualist archetype who has an especially close bond with her phantom, allowing the two to be even more deadly fighting side by side.
  • The lust subschool, for enchantment-focused wizards who wish to harness the power of sin.

 

Whether you're about to embark on a campaign with ties to the ancient arts of sin magic (such as one of multiple official Paizo adventure paths), or you just want to play a character steeped in sin, this book has lots of tantalizing options to offer. Even GMs can get in on the fun, as several of the archetypes here are perfect for sinful NPCs as well, and can make for exciting and memorable encounters.

 

Be sure to check back next week as we continue to explore the seven deadly sins with Weekly Wonders: Archetypes of Sin Volume V - Pride.

 

 

Weekly Wonders: Archetypes of Sin Volume III - Greed

August 3rd, 2018

Necromancers of the Northwest is proud to present Weekly Wonders: Archetypes of Sin Volume III - Greed. Currently available at www.paizo.com, www.drivethrurpg.com, and www.d20pfsrd.com, here's what the back of the book has to say:

Keep these miserly new archetypes all for yourself!

Envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath. The temptation and allure of the seven deadly sins is undeniable. They have fascinated and tantalized audiences for centuries, and the idea of the seven deadly sins appears frequently in movies, books, games, and other media. They even have a role at the very heart of the Pathfinder Campaign Setting, and feature centrally in its most iconic Adventure Path. While sin magic is a famous part of the Pathfinder setting, and due to be revisited in an upcoming Adventure Path, there are other ways to gain power from the seven deadly sins. Each installment of Weekly Wonders: Archetypes of Sin presents several new archetypes tied to one of the seven deadly sins, allowing characters of various classes to tap into the power of sin.

For this book, we focus on the sin of greed. While a greed for material wealth is the most common and obvious, there can be many forms of greed, and those who seek to acquire endless amounts of power, knowledge, or even trinkets and baubles can be stricken just as strongly. Whatever it is that a character hoards, if greed is the motivation that drives them, then they are never content, never able to rest and be happy with what they have, but must always strive to gather still more, and more, and more, attempting to satisfy an insatiable hole within themselves. This book includes the following archetypes:

  • The spellmiser, an arcanist archetype whose quest for the knowledge of new and different spells knows no bounds.
  • The order of the coin, a cavalier order exclusive to the wealthy, that are masters of bribery and empowered by lavish surroundings.
  • The collector, an occultist archetype that focuses on collecting a specific kind of object, and gains powers both from and over the items of his collection.
  • The treasure hunter, a rogue archetype that specializes in finding extra profit from dungeon and deal alike.
  • The wyrmshifter, a shifter archetype that can take the form of a fearsome dragon, but also gains the legendary greed of dragonkind.
  • The plundering blade, a swashbuckler archetype that cheats, bribes, and steals to get ahead, and can gain power from burying her treasures in hidden caches.
  • The greed subschool, for transmutation-focused wizards who wish to harness the power of sin.

 

Whether you're about to embark on a campaign with ties to the ancient arts of sin magic (such as one of multiple official Paizo adventure paths), or you just want to play a character steeped in sin, this book has lots of tantalizing options to offer. Even GMs can get in on the fun, as several of the archetypes here are perfect for sinful NPCs as well, and can make for exciting and memorable encounters.
