Pathfinder: Book of Magic: Dragon Spells and Archetypes

Are You a Sheep? No. You’re a Dragon. Be a Dragon!

Dragons should be terrifying with their thick scales and their huge jaws and their deadly breath weapons. The draconic ability to cast spells should be just as iconic and fear-inducing, which really cannot be done with the same spells any wizard can learn. At the same time, those that hunt down dragons need specialized spells to counteract the deadly abilities dragons possess. Arm yourself with these spells and archetypes and take down these deadly beasts.

Book of Magic: Dragon Spells and Archetypes is a great resource for any spellcasting character in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. This short supplement features:

  • 20 New Spells—Some for the dragon hunter, some for the dragon
  • 5 New Class Options—theme your character to associate your character more like a dragon or to hunt these wyrms

Make Your Dragons Terrifying or Tremble With Fear!

What Are We Up To?

We love to hear what our favorite game companies are working on as much as everyone else. Typically we do not announce very far in advance, but frankly, there is no reason not to share with you what we are working on. So here we go:

Coming in September is the previously announced Book of Magic: Dragon Spells and Archetypes. This book helps you to theme your character like someone that admires dragons, draws their power from a draconic ancestory or wants to hunt down dragons. With archetypes and class options like the draconic implement for the occultist or the wizard discoveries, there are quite a few ways you can create the character you want. Even more, there are spells in here ideal for those taking on a dragon, those that want to associate with dragons, or for dragons themselves. These spells enhance the natural abilities of dragons, making these creatures even deadlier, or penetrate straight them, turning them into useless wyrms. Look for this next month.

October sees the release of the Deadly Delves: Reign of Ruin adventure for both Fifth Edition as well as the Swords and Wizardry. Whether you prefer your games with modern rules or an excellent revisit of the classic game, this is an adventure your players will not soon forget. A black dragon attacks a town and the players track it back to its lair and encounter more than a few surprises along the way. Prepare for more than you expected in this adventure. We are hoping to bring you both version of this adventure at the same time, but one may be delayed (hopefully not too long).

This is where our schedule starts to get a little uncertain. We are working on the equivalent of the d66 Compendium for Starfinder (currently unnamed). I am just not certain it will be ready for its target launch in November. This book will be a handy toolkit for gamemasters of science fantasy names. It contains names of aliens, planets, moons, robots, guns, and a whole lot more. No Starfinder gamemaster will want to be without this book.

Coming in December is the Pathfinder adventure Deadly Delves: Nine Lives for Petane by Christen N. Sowards of Lost Spheres Publishing. They have a Kickstarter going on now; check it out. In Nine Lives the players need to resurrect someone from a crypt, but which corpse is the right one? To make matters worse, an evil cult has been using the crypt as their own private playground. Even worse, monsters keep appearing out of no where. Good luck solving the mystery when your GM decides to run this 13th level adventure.

That is all we have for you right now. We are working on so much more than that, but I cannot pin down a date when any of it will come out at this point in time. We hope you are as excited about it as I am.

Pathfinder: Everyone Needs Dragon Spells

Coming in September is the Book of Magic: Dragon Spells and Archetypes. As you can guess, this book contains spell and archetypes that are dragon-themed. So if your campaign features quite a number of dragons, this is definitely a supplement you NEED to grab ahold of. Some are designed to be used almost exclusively against dragons while others have a much wider use but still have dragons in mind during the spell’s creation.

Today I want to show off two such spells. The first is one every prepared spellcaster needs to know about before going into a dragon’s cave. The other has a much wider use than just dragons. I hope you enjoy them.

Deflect Breath Weapon

School abjuration; Level arcanist/sorcerer/wizard 2, cleric/oracle/warpriest 3, druid/hunter 3, magus 2, ranger 3
Casting Time immediate action
Components S
Range special
Area special
Duration instantaneous
Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance no
In a last ditch attempt, you pit your magic against the full force of a foe’s breath weapon. Depending on the type of breath weapon you can attempt the following.
Cone: You create a 15-foot long cone of force that you can place anywhere within 15 feet. All those that are within the cone’s area of effect gain a +8 bonus on their Reflex saves to evade the breath weapon’s effect.
Line: You attempt to deflect the line away by creating an angled wall of force 5 feet in front of you. The angled wall grants you a +10 bonus on your Reflex save. If you succeed on your Reflex save against the breath weapon you deflect the line either to the left or right of you (your choice) at a 45 degree angle, possibly causing it to hit other targets, who must make Reflex saves as normal for the breath weapon.

Heartseeker

School necromancy; Level arcanist/sorcerer/wizard 1, bloodrager 1, cleric/oracle/warpriest 2, magus 1, shaman 2, witch 1
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, F (heart)
Range touch
Target weapon touched
Duration 3 rounds + 1 round/2 levels (D)
Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance yes
Twisting the strands of fate, you imbue one weapon with a desperate need to seek vital organs. Upon a strike, you deal an additional 5 points of negative energy damage plus 1 point of damage per caster level (to a maximum of 15 points of damage) to the target. The magic dissipates after one hit.
