There’s a new Pathfinder Player Companion coming out this month–the Blood of the Ancients, which lets you build a character connected to Golarion’s distant past. Draw upon the power of the Azlant or the forgotten history of Taldor…
The Blood of the Ancients player’s companion lets you connect your character to the history of Golarion. It’s a fun chance to play with a trope that you don’t get to see too terrible often–the modern scion of an ancient power. Which sure, that could easily be a character concept, but it’s not too often that you see mechanical support for something like that.
But that’s what this book has in spades. They’ve created new archetypes and spells, all firmly rooted in the stories of Ancient Golarion. So if you want to play with the past, this book is the perfect present.
The Legacy Lives On
Civilizations have risen and fallen across Golarion for thousands of years, leaving legends and ruins in their wake. Though nations may vanish, they are never truly gone so long as their traditions and descendants still survive. Breathe life into these lost cultures with character options that trace their origins back to ancient times, or pay homage to a distant ancestry with one of the archetypes presented in Pathfinder Player Companion: Blood of the Ancients!
Inside this book you’ll find:
- The vestige bloodline, which allows both bloodragers and sorcerers the power to not only glimpse into the past but also summon long-dead ancestors and forgotten cities and battlefields into the present day.
- New archetypes, from the ancient Azlanti ioun kineticists and the Spawn slayers of Ninshabur to the golem-forged Jistkan artificers and the Heaven-mandated jinyiwei investigators of Lung Wa.
- New spells recovered from ancient cultures, including mystic runes from Shory, life-preserving magic from the Mierani arcane wardens, and spells believed to have been used by the founder of Jistka himself.
This Pathfinder Player Companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but it can easily be incorporated into any fantasy world.
