Advanced Options: Veteran Martial Archetypes

January 18th, 2018

Necromancers of the Northwest is proud to present Advanced Options: Veteran Martial Archetypes. Currently available at www.paizo.com, www.drivethrurpg.com, and www.d20pfsrd.com, here's what the back of the book has to say:


Master the Art of War!

Now on its fifth edition, the world’s oldest roleplaying game presents a number of exciting options to allow players to customize their characters. It seems like just about every class in the game gives players a major choice that can heavily alter the way their character operates, such as a barbarian’s primal path, a paladin’s oath, or a warlock’s pact. While the core rules give every class a handful of these options to choose from, and additional supplements from Wizards of the Coast have provided a few more here and there, there’s no doubt that there’s plenty of room for more of these options to provide you with exciting new approaches to each class, which can give you a some new tricks, allow you to represent flavorful ideas and concepts that had no support previously, or completely turn the class’s basic role on its head. The Advanced Options series is here to give you those new options.

This installment focuses on providing new options for fighter characters, in the form of six new martial archetypes. Become a bodyguard and gain the ability to block attacks made against your allies. Blend divine magic and martial prowess to as a holy knight. Become an inspired knight and draw inspiration from legends of heroic deeds, pushing yourself and your allies to achieve feats otherwise beyond your means. Specialize in combating spellcasters and combating magic as a spell slayer. This book contains all of these archetypes, and more.

Take your game up to the next level with our advanced options for fifth edition today!

 

And be sure to check back next week, when we'll be providing some advanced options for the next 5th Edition class, the monk!

 

 

Necromancers of the Northwest in 2019

January 9th, 2018

It's an exciting time to be in the third-party publishing business for tabletop roleplaying games. The 5th edition of Dungeons and Dragons is still new enough to have plenty of potential for exciting new products, with a growing fanbase. Paizo's Starfinder Roleplaying Game is still fresh and exciting, and offers a whole different set of options to explore. Meanwhile, a playtest is already out for the second edition of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, with a full release expected later this year. Although the first edition of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is far from gone, and will always have a special place in our hearts here at Necromancers of the Northwest, we are also excited by these new opportunities, and in particular we want to be ready to hit the ground running when second edition is released. As a result, we've decided to temporarily postpone our regular article schedule for the time being, to focus on advanced design work for some larger products that you can expect close to that release date.

In the meantime, weekly books will continue every Friday, and we have several projects that, for one reason or another, have been delayed for extended periods of time, which we look forward to bringing you in the coming months, including one of our most creative books yet, which will provide a series of new and wildly different base classes for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game (first edition). Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

We also have another installment of Advanced Arcana coming your way, although this version is full of spells for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game. Taking advantage of the game's cosmopolitan and alien-heavy setting, we've put together an Advanced Arcana that focuses on the sorts of unique spells that these alien cultures develop, with selections of unique and exciting spells from 10 different races, all with the creative and groundbreaking mechanics that the Advanced Arcana series is known for.

Necromancers of the Northwest is proud to present Advanced Options: Seasonal Druid Circles. Currently available at www.paizo.com, www.drivethrurpg.com, and www.d20pfsrd.com, here's what the back of the book has to say:

A Circle for Every Season!

Now on its fifth edition, the world’s oldest roleplaying game presents a number of exciting options to allow players to customize their characters. It seems like just about every class in the game gives players a major choice that can heavily alter the way their character operates, such as a barbarian’s primal path, a paladin’s oath, or a warlock’s pact.

The Advanced Options series is here to give you those new options.

This installment focuses on providing new options for druid characters, in the form of four new druid circles. Each of these four circles provides powers and abilities linked to a specific season of the year: druids of the autumn circle are able to change their colors like fall leaves, wither plants, and turn gourds into potent wards. Druids of the spring circle can rejuvenate their allies, use pheromones to invoke romance, and animate plants to serve them. Druids of the summer circle can conjure daylight, create invigorating bonfires, and invoke brilliant and deadly fireworks displays. Finally, druids of the winter circles can see and move uninhibited through snow, and create and manipulate snow in a wide variety of ways.
