Weekly Wonders: The Plant Corruption

September 30th, 2016

Necromancers of the Northwest is proud to announce the release of our latest book, Weekly Wonders: The Plant Corruption. Currently available at www.paizo.com, www.drivethrurpg.com, and www.d20pfsrd.com, here's what the back of the book has to say:

Turn Your Enemies To Mulch!

                Corruptions, from Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Horror Adventures, give players a new way to indulge their dark fantasies and take the role of gothic monsters, infecting themselves with some taint or darkness, and presenting the tantalizing question of whether to struggle against the corruption, or embrace it, and allow themselves to bask, however briefly, in its dark power. While Horror Adventures presents 11 different corruptions to choose from, there are many more potential sources of corruption that could potentially be explored.

                This book presents the plant corruption, a brand new corruption featuring unique progression rules, and 10 new manifestations that are flavorfully connected to plants and fungi. Further, the book introduces the black spore plant template, which can be applied to any plant and gives it, in addition to other abilities, the power to infect victims with spores that deliver the plant corruption.



And be sure to keep an eye out for next Friday's release, Weekly Wonders: The Angelic Corruption.

 

 

Weekly Wonders: Eldritch Items

September 23rd, 2016

Necromancers of the Northwest is proud to announce the release of our latest book, Weekly Wonders: Eldritch Items. Currently available at www.paizo.com, www.drivethrurpg.com, and www.d20pfsrd.com, here's what the back of the book has to say:

Occult Weapons and Weird Science

From dread books with ancient secrets, to obscure cult relics and alien technologies that man was not meant to know, the worlds of the eldritch and the strange contain many unique and powerful magic items. This book contains fifteen new magic items with a focus on eldritch, alien, and Lovecraftian themes, including:

  • The brain box, a strange device that preserves a severed brain and allows its knowledge to be accessed.
  • The cloak of man skin, a cloak made from human skin, which allows creatures of any race to disguise themselves in human guise.
  • The fingerbone of curses, a human fingerbone that fuses to one’s hand and allows the wielder to deliver limitless curses with a touch, but also inflicts bad luck upon its wielder.
  • The tongue of the goat, a writhing, living tongue that can be sewn into the user’s mouth and allows him to speak any language and influence or even slay those who might oppose him.
  • …and much, much more!



And be sure to keep an eye out for next Friday's release, which features a new plant-based corruption and a horrific template for plant creatures.

Weekly Wonders: Rituals of Blood

September 16th, 2016

Necromancers of the Northwest is proud to announce the release of our latest book, Weekly Wonders: Rituals of Blood. Currently available at www.paizo.com, www.drivethrurpg.com, and www.d20pfsrd.com, here's what the back of the book has to say:

Unlock the Power In Your Veins

                Occult rituals, from Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Occult Adventures, bring magic to the masses, with lengthy and difficult to perform magical rites which can be performed even by non-spellcasters, but which come with a cost, as well as the risk for terrible backlash to occur for those who meddle in things they do not understand. Unlike traditional spells, only a handful of occult rituals made it into that book however, which begs the question of what other strange and unknowable rituals might be lurking about in obscure tomes lost to history and memory. Tomes like this one.

                This book presents a collection of 10 brand new occult rituals for use in your game, all of which are thematically linked to bloodlines, blood effigies, and blood sacrifice. Presented in the guise of a fictitious tome that player characters might stumble across, the book also includes a flavorful introductory section that can be read aloud or handed out to players, and suggestions for how to incorporate the book into your game. The rituals in this book allow players (or nefarious NPCs) to:

    • Instill the power of a sorcerer bloodline in a character that lacks one, or empower the blood of a sorcerer or bloodrager to empower their abilities.
    • Wipe out entire bloodlines, slaying whole lineages with a single spell.
    • Create a murderous homunculus from the blood of another creature, which will stalk and slay the donor at all costs.
    • Create a literal rain of gore that attracts predators from miles away, and withers and blights crops in the area.
    • And much, much more!



    And be sure to keep an eye out for next Friday's release, a collection of eldritch and lovecraftian magic items.

     

     

    Henchmen

    September 15th, 2016

    We all love a good villain, but what about that villain’s top minion? After all, without a good henchman, a villain is just a bad guy. In case you’re short on ideas for these essential characters, this week’s Top Ten explores ten interesting henchmen.

     

     

    A-Ranging A Deal

    September 14th, 2016

    Who doesn’t love magic weapons on Magic Market? Most likely, those of you who use ranged weapons, as we haven’t made any yet this year. Not to worry, here’s three new magic weapons for those of you who like to keep your distance.

     

     

    Elemental Blademaster

    September 13th, 2016

    Let’s face it: energy swords are all the rage, and pretty much always will be. From beams of pure fire, to those pulled whole-cloth from within a stone, and made of obsidian or even diamond, to the satisfying strangeness of swords made entirely of air or water, elemental blades are fun. Want to wield one? Check out today’s Best in Class, a kineticist archetype that focuses on making the most of kinetic blades.

     

     

    Origami Creature

    September 12th, 2016

    Today’s Exotic Encounter is a new template for origami creatures. Although less physically imposing than flesh and blood, these folded paper monsters can make for frightening foes, and will leave players feeling proud of themselves as they punch through the minions like they were made out of paper!
