Perfect Order, Perfect Chaos

There are those who walk a middle road, the heroes to whom questions of morality come second to some greater goal. It is to these bold individuals that the gods of balance offer their hands. Whether it’s the god of cities and civilization or the guardians of the wild places, the goddess of death or the twisted and insane lord of magic, the neutral gods of Golarion are every bit as active as their righteous or evil counterparts. Often misunderstood, their worshipers run the gambit from enlightened scholars to bloodthirsty paragons of battle, all bound together by the same knowledge: that there are distinctions more important than good versus evil.

Faiths of Balance presents a player-friendly overview of the neutral-aligned religions and faiths of the Pathfinder campaign setting, along with new rules and information to help players customize pious characters in both flavor and mechanics.

    Inside this book, you'll find:
  • Information on each of the major neutral gods and his or her corresponding religion, including what’s expected of adventurers of various classes, ways for the faithful to identify each other, taboos, devotions and ceremonies, church hierarchies, holy texts, religious holidays, and more
  • An overview of the ancient Green Faith, to which many druids still hold
  • New character traits to help represent and cement a character’s background in the church
  • New feats for holy warriors
  • New god-specific spells for a wide variety of spellcasters
  • New magic items designed specifically for members of the faith
  • New religious organizations and military orders, plus a paladin code for the chosen warriors of Abadar, god of cities
  • Details on minor neutral deities, powerful fey entities, and more!

Written by Colin McComb

Each bimonthly 32-page Pathfinder Companion contains several player-focused articles exploring the volume’s theme as well as short articles with innovative new rules for social, magic, religious, and combat-focused characters, as well as traits to better anchor the player to the campaign.

Excellent book

*****

Like the other two books in the "faiths" line this book is very very good, it really brings flavor to a lot of deities who (to me at least) seemed very bland before.
Keep in mind that this book contains information about deities that are neutral on the good-evil axis or nuatral in both the good-evil and law-chaos axis, the deities that are neutral in the law-chaos axis but not on the good-evil axis are covered in the other two books (faiths of purity and faiths of corruption).
Here you will also find the paladin oaths for paladins of Abadar.

I have reviewed this book over on RPGGeek.com.


Neutrality is harder than it looks...Faiths of Balance

*****

Along with its sister publications, Faiths of Purity and Faiths of Corruption, this volume is a must have for creating a cleric. Rich in detail, broad in scope, and just frakin' neat. Check my full review: Faiths of Balance


Solid book for followers of neutral deities.

****( )

Faiths of Balance is a solid resource for players that choose to follow a neutral deity. With information on what types of adventurer would follow a deity, what identifies worshipers, how other faiths get along - there is a wealth of information to help a player more accurately portray a follower of any of the neutral deities covered in the book. Coupled with new traits, feats and spells there is plenty to help a player or GM.

2nd part of a 3 part whole

*****

Looking at Faiths of Balance, and Faith of Purity as individual books might make you think they deserve lower ratings but looking at them as a greater whole gives us an awesome collection of resources for roleplaying, world building, and character background. Good job Paizo and thank you Colin for another flavorful book.
