Tomorrow we are releasing Book of Magic: Insurgency of Summer. I mentioned yesterday that this is the supplement to have to resist the Reign of Winter fey. Today we are sharing with you some of what is inside. There are 10 fire- or summer-themed spells that will help you in every in your struggle against the cold fey. But you will also find other class options for spellcasters to use. For example, there are three new subdomains: Beltane, Rainbow and Summer. Clerics with the Summer subdomain, associated with the Fire domain are filled with summer’s warmth and sustain less damage from cold attacks.

Also arcane spellcasters with familiars have two new improved familiar options: mechanical owl and young pheonix. Only a true defender of summer is granted a young pheonix by its parent. These mystical birds seldom reproduce since they reincarnate but when they do, they entrust these vulnerable youth to fiery spellcasters.

“What would I give for a holocaust cloak?” -Wesley, Princess Bride. I leave you off with the holocaust cloak.

Holocaust Cloak
strong evocation; CL 7th
Slot shoulders; Price 50,400 gp; Weight 1 lb.


When the command word is given, this unassuming, ink black cloak becomes enveloped in flames and increases the light level by one step within a 10-foot radius. These flames do not damage the wearer; however, the wearer is granted either cold resistance 10 or fire resistance 10, chosen at the time of activation. Any creature that attacks the wearer with a natural weapon or an unarmed strike sustains 1d6+7 points of fire damage. This effect lasts for 10 rounds/day. These rounds do not need to be consecutive.
The wearer can choose to use 2 rounds of the holocaust cloak’s activation time to instead flood the area with fire. When used in this manner, all creatures within 10 feet of the wearer sustain 7d6 points of fire damage (Reflex save DC 16 for half). The wearer does not take any damage from this effect.


Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, fire shield; Cost 25,200 gp
