Mythic Mastery: Missing Mythic Magic Volume XVI

May 22nd, 2014

Necromancers of the Northwest is proud to announce the release of our latest book, Mythic Mastery - Missing Mythic Magic Volume XVI. Currently available at drivethrurpg, paizo.com, and d20pfsrd.com, here's what the back of the book has to say:

Uncover Forgotten Arcane Lore!

            Everyone knows that knowledge is power, and that having options is better than not having them. It should come as no surprise, then, that wizards, witches, and other powerful spellcasters are always on the lookout for new and exciting spells to add to their repertoires. While many spells from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook received a facelift and an upgrade in Mythic Adventures, the sourcebook that introduced mythic power to the game of Pathfinder, dozens of spells were left behind. Missing Mythic Magic Volume XVI, and its predecessors, aim to give each and every spell from the core rules a full-fledged mythic upgrade, all the way from A to Z, with a special focus on making mythic spells that feel as over-the-top and larger-than-life as possible.

            This installment includes 21 mythic spells, from programmed image to remove curse. A mythic programmed image gains a limited sentience, and can use its own reasoning, judgment, and knowledge to act out your commands. The mythic version of protection from energy can absorb the power of the elements it protects from, using them to create further defenses, and can also protect from all the elements at once. A mythic rage allows you to grant rage powers to the targets, or cause unwilling creatures to fly into a self-destructive frenzy, while a mythic reincarnate can bring creatures back as creatures of completely different types. This tome contains all that, and much, much more!

            The Mythic Mastery series of products builds and expands on the rules for mythic characters introduced in Mythic Adventures. Each Mythic Mastery provides new content and rules for mythic games, with a focus on a single theme or area of play. While some of the content provided in Mythic Mastery products requires the use of mythic characters and a mythic adventure, others, such as those focused on exploring mythic monsters, can be used in games of every sort.

Look forward to next week's release, which focuses on the mysteries of troll magic.

Mirror, Mirror

May 6th, 2014

Mirrors and magic have long had an association which is prevalent throughout folklore and fantasy media. Whether devices for descrying things far afield or yet to occur, or as prisons for demons or souls, or even as objects of curses which inflict horrors upon those who gaze upon them, the mirror is a potent magical object. It should come as no surprise then, that there should be some new magic mirrors for sale in this week’s Magic Market.
