Necromancers of the Northwest is taking a brief vacation from articles, which will resume on Monday, March 16th, with Dragon Week! There are some things you can look forward to between now and then, however:

                This Friday we'll be releasing our latest installment of Weekly Wonders, which provides a selection of fantastic magical instruments.

                Monday, March 9th, we will be posting a sneak preview of our upcoming full-length product focused on investigators and mystery games in general. That book will be released that Friday, March 13th.

               Friday, March 13th is also the release of another Weekly Wonder, this one devoted to spells that specialize in slaying giants (and other particularly large creatures).

From the Bags of Giants!

February 27th, 2014

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

A Giant Collection of Treasures!

                Besides being large, the one thing that giants all seem to have in common is their tendency to collect strange and unusual treasures in the oversized bags that they carry with them as they roam across the land. While gems, gold, and magic items are all things that you can find in a giant’s bag, there are also plenty of “treasures” that only a giant could love, such as half-eaten goats or a stone tablet too worn to read. Most of a giant’s treasures fall somewhere in between, however, taking the form of odd or unusual art objects, captive creatures, and other strange things that can potentially be of value, but are more than just hard currency.

                Other books have provided simple tables with a handful of suggestions for what kinds of mundane objects you might find in a giants’ bag, but the limited number of entries and the nature of the content can make giants’ bags fairly forgettable quickly, instead of an exciting source of unpredictable treasure and plot hooks. This book contains four d% tables for use in determining the contents of a giant’s bag, one each for cloud, fire, frost, and hill giants. Since each table is tailored to a specific giant, and there are no repeated entries, that makes for 400 weird and unusual things to find in giants’ bags (or any other place you find yourself wishing for a strange and surprising bit of treasure). Even more, for each type of giant bag, there is a new unique magic item, never seen elsewhere, each of which is included in this book.

Look forward to next Friday's release, which features a variety of magical instruments whose abilities are as whimsical as they are powerful.

Nature's Avenger

February 24th, 2014

When you think of someone who’s fighting to save the trees and the whales, you probably don’t think of them as doing it with a big, spiky mace imbued with sacred power.
