The top ten merchants!? Well… kind of. Today we take a look at 10 great personalities to which you can sell your amassed treasure and art objects, because after all, don’t you want to know who would really buy a miniature ivory sword?
This week’s Magic Market features a trio of specific magic weapons from amongst the monk weapon group, including a phase-shifting sai, a shadow shuriken, and a very wild pair of nunchaku.
Judging from the name of the class and all of its abilities, the slayer is a gifted killer and a powerful warrior. Today’s new archetype takes a look at another take on the slayer: the shadow commando.
This week’s Exotic Encounter is a high-CR qlippoth, so get ready to get weird, it’s the gorligost!
Necromancers of the Northwest is proud to announce the release of our latest book, Weekly Wonders: Villainous Archetypes Volume II. Currently available at drivethrurpg, paizo.com, and d20pfsrd.com, here's what the back of the book has to say:
It’s Good to Be Bad!
Sick of saving the world? Tired of being expected to leap at the chance to solve everyone’s petty problems? Have a thing for twirling mustaches and overly-elaborate deathtraps? Why not mix things up with a villainous character! At some point in their gaming career, everyone has considered playing an “evil campaign,” but with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game being devoted to goody-two-shoes heroes, it can sometimes be hard to find support. Want some evil options for your character? You’ve found them!
This book presents five new villainous archetypes for five different classes. Included are the brutal oppressor, a barbarian archetype focused on savagely demoralizing her foes, the elemental defiler, a kineticist archetype that draws elemental energy from places and even living things, harming them in order to gain power, the extortioner, an investigator archetype that uses the secrets he learns to force others to do what he wants, the villainous bloodline for sorcerers, with a variety of special powers suited for a dark lord of magic, and the eldritch slavemaster, a summoner archetype who enslaves the eidolons and creatures he summons against their will, and can sacrifice them for great benefits.
Whether you're about to embark on an evil-themed campaign (such as Way of the Wicked, by Fire Mountain Games, or the first official Paizo adventure path made specifically for evil characters), or you just want an excuse to play an unrepentant, irredeemable villain, 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 villainous NPCs as well, and can make for exciting and memorable encounters.
And be sure to keep an eye out for next Friday's release, another new book of rituals, this one focusing on magic relating to the stars, the void, and distant planets.
