Pathfinder: Have Faith with Disciple’s Doctrine

2 Minute Read
Jan 28 2018

Have a little (or a lot of) faith, adventurers. This latest player’s companion believes in you.

There’s a new Player’s Companion out now that explores different traditions of faith. Whether as part of large organizations or more intimate religions that are focused on some of the more esoteric stuff out there. Disciple’s Doctrine has a lot to offer to characters looking to add a little more mysticism to their Divine-linked characters. You’ll find some really cool archetypes in there for the Oracle, Ranger, Monk, Occultist, Warpriest, Ninja, Spiritualist, Skald, Samurai, and Medium.

All in all the book is full of a ton of cool lore/flavor–as far as the classes go, there are a few that really stand out–but even the ones that aren’t likely to be appearing on the optimization boards are still interesting. There’s nothing in here that I wouldn’t want to play at least once. Check it out!

Trust and Your Faith Shall Provide

Having faith doesn’t always mean worshiping a deity. From the far-flung corners of Golarion to the center of its major cities, many adherents find faith in small congregations dedicated to obscure beliefs and complex philosophies. Pathfinder Player Companion: Disciple’s Doctrine explores a dozen of these cults and traditions, including such groups as the Esoteric Order of the Palatine Eye, Magnimar’s mystery cults, the Oracular Council of Po Li in Tian Xia, the Prophets of Kalistrade, and many more. Learn more about these lesser-known groups, and discover the class and character options that true faith and deep traditions can unlock.

Inside this book you’ll find:

  • A host of character traits for those with a background in devotion or dogma, including the natural ritualist faith trait for those who venerate the outdoors and the ecumenical social trait for those who grew up learning about many deities.
  • Archetypes for adherents of these doctrines, from the fist of the Godclaw warpriest for members of that Hellknight order to the seeker of enlightenment spiritualist dedicated to learning about Sangpotshi, the River of Life.
  • A wide array of spells for the faithful and those who have learned from them, including protective spells tied to the Kalistocrats of Druma and prophetic spells connected to the Harbingers of Fate.

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

You could say this book is simply divine…
