Review from DriveThruRPG

*****

Review posted over on DriveThru RPG by Tyler E. [Verified Purchaser]

Coming in at about 8 pages of content, the Priest is a divine dynamo of scholastic theme and design, with class abilities that evoke the vibe and style of not just the scholastic priest but the raw might of the gods issued from humble hands. For the cost of your armor proficiencies, weapon proficiencies, and a Wizards BAB players gain access to more domains, a whole new system of casting, and miracles. Now the first two are pretty self explanatory, with the extra domain, extra domain spell slot at each spell level, and the new spont prep casting fusion lending a new and unique style to the Priest class in terms of play but the real star here is the miracles. A new mechanic reminiscent of smite in terms of power and progression, miracles are the divine favor of the Priest's god acted out large, allowing the priest to summon up powerful boons upon his companions and himself in order to carry the them to victory. These miracles run the gamut from anointing a spell with holy power to boost the save DC and calling down holy auras of protection upon the priest allies to literal divine interventions that allow players to re-roll saves, become invisible to their enemies, or even grow wings for short periods of time. The whole thing reads like a dream and feels amazing to play out on the table, with your priest channeling their gods powers to defeat enemies one minute and then shouting out prayers of safety that literally wrap their allies in protective wards or bend fate to turn mortal wounds into near misses. The whole thing makes you feel like an utter bad ass and honestly makes you wonder how the hell no one thought of this sooner.

The Priest has become one of my favorite new classes going forward and sets a high mark for whatever Paizo or other 3rd party publishers attempt within the realm of both divine scholar and the cleric itself. From a focus on skill points, domains, and more divine agent like class abilities to the just sheer fun of throwing a miracle on a friend and watching the GM have to suddenly pivot as that miss becomes a critical hit or that NPC dying of the black plague suddenly gets a second chance at that last save stave off his affliction or throwing fireballs imbued with holy energy at a pile of fiends, the Priest class as a whole feels like a marked improvement over both the divine scholar concept in specific and the vanilla cleric as a whole.

Excellent books - well worth the money!


These are absolutely fascinating books - I highly recommend all 4!

The style and decade-by-decade format is perfect for the topic. The amount of information and the interesting way it is presented let's the reader really see how everything interconnects.

A perfect way to end the 4-book set! The 00's covers the more recent companies and events in the RPG industry. Yes, Paizo is covered in great detail, as is all the other companies and luminaries we all hear about all the time.

These are excellent books and which present a fantastic history of the RPG industry from its very beginnings to now (one book per decade). It's so interesting to see how people and companies affect one another and influence the games. I can't recommend Designers & Dragons highly enough! Great books!

Again, these are really excellent books and well worth the money. If you are at all interested in learning more about the people, companies and games that make up the history of the RPG industry, pick up these books!

The 90's was every bit as interesting as the previous two books. In fact, since it details such important events as Wizards buying TSR, Third Edition D&D and the D20 explosion, this book might actually be one of the most relevant and interesting of the 4. On a personal note, it was great seeing the names of people and companies I actually worked with (although the 80's was when I started playing D&D, the late 90's was when I had my first experiences actually working a little in the industry itself)

The 70's was great because I didn't really get into gaming until the very late 70's / early 80's, so seeing how the industry began was amazing. Reading about things and people and companies I knew at least a little about, and then seeing how it all connected was pure gold. I can't tell you how many times, while reading this, I hit on something and though "Oh, OK, that makes sense now" or "Oh! I always wondered about that!"

Honestly - great stuff!

I particularly enjoyed this one, because the 80's was when I really got into gaming (technically I stated playing AD&D around 1978/79 when I was around 11 or 12, but for all intents, the 80's was THE golden age of gaming for me). Hearing all those cool behind the scenes stories about the people and companies I grew up with was just fantastic.
