Oracles are defined by mysteries and curses, and this product provides an expansion for options for both. If Oracles are popular in your campaign, this product should prove to be a very good resource.

Divine Favor: the Oracle is an 18-page PDF (16-pages if you remove the cover and OGL page) for the Pathfinder RPG written by Stefen Styrsky and published by Open Design. This is part of Open Design’s Advance Feats line for Pathfinder.

The layout is primary traditional two columns and easy to read. The cover is color while the interior art is mostly black and white public domain art with a few color pieces, most of which play to the oracular theme.

Divine Favor: the Oracle jumps straight in with new curses, nine of them, as curses are one of the defining features of the Oracle having more choices is good. Several are simple (drunkard, illiterate) while others are much more high fantasy (soulless, unstable form). As in the case of all curses, they are a negotiation between mechanics and roleplaying effects and should be considered in the context of how they fit into a campaign.

Next are six new mysteries, the other important part of designing an oracle, including clockwork and wine (goes well with the drunkard curse) and ones perhaps best suited to villains (plague, snakes).

Lastly, six new Oracle feats complete this product, which enhance the oracle abilities in a variety of ways. I especially like Summon Avatar which gives your summoned creatures a minor ability based on the Oracle’s mystery.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
