Pathfinder: Healer’s Handbook – Out Now

2 Minute Read

Surrounded by blood…so much blood…? Don’t just stare vacantly into the distance, do something about it with the Healer’s Handbook, out now from Paizo.

via Paizo:

“Whether it’s for getting patched up after a fight, dealing with a debilitating disease contracted in a fetid dungeon, or negating the effects of a terrible poison in the middle of combat, eventually every adventurer needs a healer. Most healers have their own agendas, though, and these don’t always end at mending their allies’ ailments. With Pathfinder Player Companion: Healer’s Handbook, characters can learn to efficiently heal their patients—without finding themselves reduced to being walking first-aid kits.

Inside this book, you’ll find:

  • Healing-focused archetypes for 10 classes, such as the angelfire apostle cleric and invigorator paladin—plus options for arcane healers, such as the faith singer bard and arcane physician wizard.
  • Feats geared toward characters who like to heal on their own terms, plus feats that allow any adventurer to harness her own vigor in the heat of battle.
  • A host of new options to customize features for classes that dabble in healing, including focused blessings for warpriests, new paladin mercies, druidic herbalism, and a shaman spirit specialization.

This Pathfinder Player Companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be incorporated into any fantasy world.”

I’m particularly excited about the “without being reduced to walking first-aid kits.” After all, nobody wants to sit around casting cure minor, moderate, or serious as needed. Also interested to see what the arcane physician wizard looks like.

I mean, letting someone bind your wounds with ELDRITCH MIGHT, what could go wrong? At any rate, if you keep finding your inside bits on the outside, this book might be the thing your party needs.
