Soon Pathfinder Player Companion: Blood of the Ancients will be hitting shelves worldwide and the digital bookshelf of paizo.com as a PDF. If you're looking to have your character gain knowledge from the ancient cultures of Golarion, this is the book to check out!
Blood of the Ancients kicks off with a section that allows you to tie your character to the traditions of the ancient cultures of Golarion in a similar manner that a worshipper of a god follows an obedience. These traditions grant characters special abilities like spells and bonuses to skills.
The book then continues with sections on various ancient cultures such as the ancient Azlant, Imperial Lung Wa, and Ninshabur. Each section features new options that allow aspects of these ancient cultures to survive to present day Golarion. Some of these new options include the Hinyasi brawler archetype from the Abendego Gulf, which focuses on fighting with improvised weapons, and the dwarven scholar bard that can teach her allies the ancient fighting styles of the dwarves of Tar Taargadth.
We have more than just archetypes in this book, though! Maybe you're interested in the astrological wonders of the Saoc Brethren. Perhaps you've wanted to tap in to the arcane secrets of the Poleheira of the Jistka Imperium or follow the ancient paladin code of Wadjet. There are many things your character can learn from the past and Blood of the Ancients is the best way to do so!
