Book of the River Nations: Feats, Spells, and Secret Societies by Jon Brazer

This product is 14 pages long. It starts with a cover. (1 pages)

Feats (3 pages)
There is two types of new feats. Kingdom feats and Mass combat feats, as well as a few general feats. The kingdom feats help with the kingdom building mechanics and the Mass Combat feats help while using the Mass Combat rules. There is 17 new feats, three of them are mass combat and three of them are kingdom feats. The other eleven are normal feats.

Spells (5 page)
There is 29 new spells, 6 of them are spells to be used any time and 23 of them are spells to be used in mass combat rules. There is also side sections talking about using other spells in mass combat and in kingdom building. A couple of the spells where pretty cool I especially liked Wall of Tentacle's, a few where versions of existing spells (overland travel like expeditious retreat but can be cast on others and helps with overland travel checks), most of the mass combat spells are ok. Not great not bad.

Secret Societies (4 pages)
There is 4 listed societies listed in this section. Each only has a paragraph or two about them. Mostly they are new character options, two of them. The Hidden Sniper and Monks of the Green Leaf are new archetypes for the Ranger and Monk respectively. While Devout Healers and Kings Eye are new PrC's.
Hidden Snipers – The gain SA ability, Aim(as a move action can get a bonus to hit), must take bow or crossbow weapon style, and gets poison use. Gives up wild empathy, favored enemy and hunters bond.
Monks of the Green Leaf – Gets some different weapons and skills, Elemental Fist, adds more Bonus Feats options, Locate Creature. Gives up Stunning Fist and Abundant Step.
Devout Healer – Five level PrC. d8, medium BaB, 4 skills, +5 spell levels. Gains a lot of bonuses with healing.
Kings Eye – Five level PrC. D8, medium BaB, 6 skills. Gains bonuses with sneaking, social skills, lock picking and gather information. A ability to made coded messages, slight boost to SA, and will save bonus.

It ends with a OGL. (1 pages)

Closing thoughts. It has decent black and white art works. The layout and editing where pretty good. Other than the nice borders it is fairly plain and print friendly. As for the feats, a few was pretty cool, some was meh, but most was ok, not great and not bad. Same can be said for the spells. As for the societies I think that is a bit of a not as advertised. I was expecting information about societies not Archetypes and PrC's. They wasn't bad, they just wasn't what I was expecting. The Devout Healer and Kings Eye are both pretty good, as is the Hidden Sniper, but I was pretty meh about the Monks of the Green Leaf. All and all it is a solid product. So what's my rating? I am going to give it a 3 star. It is a solid book that is worth the money if you are looking for feats or spells to help with the Kingdom Building and or Mass Combat. It is less useful to others.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.

Does this one contain more information on certain "Swordlords" or "Black Sisters"?

This one is focused on what Players ingame can take. So it contains feats and spells that would be useful during exloration, kingdom building and mass combat. The archetypes/prestige classes center around organizations the players might want to promote while leading a country or running the kingdom in the background option. They also make good ways to introduce a new PC should one PC die off in the course of play. The PC could have been a spyfor the king or a sniper/assassin or one of the nation's valued healers or a monk that patrols the various roadways of a kingdom.

I am new to yours company products, so how much "canon" it will be?

From the description it seem not to add to the lore of the region but instead adding rules aimed to a specific story arc, so little chance of conflicts with Paizo books apparently.

If all go well with my first oversea order to Paizo I probably would add it to the next order, as I am interested in a Kingmaker campaign.

Thank you, I appreciate you taking the time to review it.


Hot dog - that review made sure I'll be getting this. Out of curiousity, could the exploration rules in these books be used in a sci-fi setting?

I don't see why not. I mean you have to account for faster vehicles and rename the buildings to their sci fi equivilent but the basic rules themselves should still hold.

As I mentioned before DM, I appreciate you taking the time to review my book. Next time I do PrCs/archetypes, I'll be sure to spend just as much time (if not more) describing the organization surrounding the mechanics as I do the mechanics themselves. Thank you for point out some place where I can improve in the future.


Bought! ...and thank you for the review DM :) It's good to get an honest opinion - if one then finds the stuff to be relevant it doesn't have to be a four or five star review. A decent product with a three star rating that fits one's neeeds, and at a price like this, is a very good buy :)

And thank you to Dale for making it!
