Description

Come one, come all! Thrill at the fascinating, the bizarre, the deadly. Try your hand at powers unlike any before. Become what you want. Haven’t found it yet? We’ll add it! The Book of Many Things is a repository of options for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Inside is a compilation of requests from around the world, fleshed out and made playable. Speed through your enemies as an accelerist. Worship fey creatures as a dúlra. Practice a forbidden and lost art as a truenamer. You could even become a skiprock champion. A variety of different races, classes, archetypes, feats, and spells await within the Book of Many Things Volume 1.

If ever there’s been something you’ve wanted in Pathfinder, but couldn’t find it anywhere else, you can hope to find it here. If it’s not already included, we’ll add it on a future update. That’s right, the Book of Many Things is a series of inexhaustively updated resources, with new content being added regularly. Just reach out to us with your request, and we’ll work with you to try and include it. You’ll even receive a thank you in the credits.

Recent Update 1/13/2018

==General Updates==

Organized all chapters into more logical and commonly understood formats (alphabetical by race/class).

==Races==

Mushroom Leshies –  Vine leshy cousins who grow up in swamps and forests.

Sokari – Proud unicorn people from the fey realm.

Vulture-Men – Foils to the elfling race, they seek enlightenment and a return to what they once were.

Other Races – Dhampir, elves, and minotaur each gain new options for play.

==Classes==

Each new class has received a list of favored class options for the races most commonly represented by them.

Invokers – Added the Merciless Sea as an otherworldly patron.

==Archetypes and Class Options==

Barbarian – Guerilla warriors stalk jungles in search of deadly foes and fight the law for what they believe is right.

Fighter – The man-at-arms trades direct combat power for more tactical striking ability.

Hunter – New animal focuses are available, some of which are based on those gained by shifters.

Monk – Masaruri dream walkers are a sect of monks who draw power from a great and unknowable entity. Monks of the divine bell follow the teachings of percussion and reverberation.

Necromancer – As a pale, you are a cursed individual who uses death as an alternative to living. Sanguine outlaws, however, learn gunplay to supplement their spellcasting.

Shifter – Shifters gain some new aspects to broaden their options as well as the warshaper archetype which gives them spellcasting similar to paladins.

Truenamer – As a hurried scholar, you have little time to put extra work into words of power and choose instead to cast spells haphazardly.

Witch – Coven witches have more focused power learned from their coven.

Wizard – The shira are music and performance-loving wizards who lack a dedicated school of magic.

==Character Options==

Added new feats for each of the classes found inside, as well as new multiclass feats for each core and new class.

CONVERGENCE: A mix of character progression and magical equipment to be purchased with gold, convergence harkens back to the bloodlines of 3rd edition, granting characters power as they gain levels, for a price.

==Equipment==

Added several new weapons, weapon modifications, and magical equipment for characters.

The altered lineage trait is mentioned multiple times in the latest update, including as a prerequisite for progressive convergence, but I can not seem to find the trait in the book itself. Is it from another book?

The October update is live.
==General==
Layout has been changed and cleaned up to prepare for printing. The book now consists of chapters on Races, Classes, Archetypes and Class Options, Character Options, Magic, and Items and Equipment. Within individual chapters, divisions such as divine, eldritch, faerie, and mortal still exist to keep the themes of each and allow for further branching in the future (arcane, perhaps?)

Updated the art to the finished piece for the god blooded.

==Races==
Arbiters – A small, winged race of inevitables who study the effects of chaos on the material plane.

Leonin – Lion-like catfolk with supernatural ties to the sun.

==Classes==
Nature Warden – A druid/fighter hybrid who takes the forms of guardian spirits to protect their allies.

==Archetypes==
Bestial Warden – A warden who prefers to fight as an animal, rather than a guardian spirit.

Eldritch Archetypes – Updated...See more

Should say 10-30-2017. New purchases means it's the only one. If you picked it up before, it should have that date. If you can't see it, please let me know and I'll track down why that is.

The September update is complete :D. Here's what I've added.

==General==
Added a chapter (7) for items and equipment. Finally added the usable descriptions for the heir apparent's suggested equipment.

Cleaned up text on several classes to line it up with the class tables provided.

==Classes==

Darkseeker (Cleric/Rogue): A worshiper of darkness and secrets, who practices his faith while assassinating his enemies.

Heir Apparent gains a new adventuring goal: The shepherd allows the heir to become a fledgling monster trainer from Mystical: Kingdom of Monsters.

==Archetypes==

Blood Convoker (Convoker): A variant of the blood summoner archetype for the summoner.

God Caller (Convoker): A variant of the god caller archetype for the summoner.

Intrepid Sidekick gains the secondary class features of the upcoming essential trainer class from Samurai Sheepdog and Northwinter Press.

Pious Thief...See more

Got a couple subraces in mind after reading more about otters on Wikipedia. These are for Michael Ralston Galvis' otterling race that I shared the other day on Facebook. These will be included in the first update, which so far consists of these, the battle augur (mega man/blue mage) class, and four other races (xendauni, seekers, nephilim, and god-blooded).

--Ferret--: Ferrets are the bardic cousins of otterlings. They enjoy dancing and games of chance to swimming. Ferrets do not gain hold breath, slippery hide, or swim. Instead, once per day, when a ferret makes a Reflex saving throw, it can roll twice and take the better result. It must decide to use this ability before attempting the saving throw. The ferret also gains a +4 racial bonus on Stealth checks and has a normal movement speed of 30 feet.

--Fisher Cat--: Fisher cat otterlings live away from rivers, preferring the forest. They are expert climbers, strong and fierce. They gain +2 Str instead of +2 Dex, climb speed 20 feet and...See more

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
