Touched by benevolent beings of the good Outer Planes somewhere in their ancestry, aasimars are viewed with either awe or fear by all who know of their celestial heritage. Hailed as scions of angels at best or otherworldly bringers of heavenly destruction at worst, there is no doubt that aasimars hold a very special place in the world of mortals, and all know to be wary of their actions in the presence of an aasimar.

Blood of Angels presents a player-friendly overview of the aasimars of the Pathfinder campaign setting, as well as new rules and information to help players create unique and interesting celestial characters for any type of game.

    Inside this book, you’ll find:
  • Expansive entries on aasimars’ origins and upbringings, their psychologies, how others perceive them, and the beliefs such angelic beings hold in the face of their celestial mark.
  • A table of 100 variant aasimar abilities to further customize your blessed character.
  • A detailed look at the six most common types of aasimars based on their celestial heritage, including alternate ability score modifiers, skills, and spell-like abilities for each.
  • New curses, inquisitions, and subdomains for heavenly oracles, inquisitors, and clerics.
  • New masterpieces for aasimar bards and the martyred bloodline for sorcerers whose celestial ancestors made great sacrifices.
  • A host of new traits to help make your aasimar character truly unique, as well as dozens of bodily features that distinguish your celestial character.

Written by Amber E. Scott

Each bimonthly 32-page Pathfinder Player 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.

Now this is how you do a cover for a player race's companion book. :)

We've come a long way since Dwarves of Golarion :P


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

New Sorcorer bloodline. Oracle mystery/curses, subdomains, etc.

A 100 variant abilities, cool, I hope you get to choose instead of roll for these.

I always like to get new traits.

Even if the table does contain a d% column, it's really a simple matter of choosing which one suits your character concept if you're not in the mood for some random result.

I hope the halo is how his Daylight spell-like ability manifests. It would be annoying to have that hanging over your head (literally!) all the time.

I like to think that badass is cleaning up the Worldwound one demon at a time. Well, more than one demon at a time if it can be arranged.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The Halo could be an alternate ability for the Aasimar wich would be cool.


Are there ability score modifiers, skills, and spell-like abilities for a Solar descended Aasimar? What about feats that only Aasimar can take?

Cheliax

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules Subscriber

If they've done Blood of Angels in the same format as Blood of Fiends, I doubt they'll get that specific. I believe James Jacobs said that in Blood of Fiends, the focus was on types of fiends (daemon, demon, devil, kyton(?)) rather than specific fiends. I imagine it'll be something similar in Blood of Angels where it's agathion, angel, archon, and azata descent.

This is just my theory, though. And it's entirely possible I misunderstood what James Jacobs said.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

They only have the the Angel, Azata, Garuda, Agathion, Archon, and Peri types for the Aasimar.

It wouldn't make any sense for them not to have racial feats for Aasimar in this book.

I gotta say, out of all of them I'm most interested in what Agathonian aasimar are going to look like. I wonder if they'll be anthrmorphic animals like actual Agathonians or if they'll just be like cat girls or just have very bestial-looking traits or something ...

*ponders*


Looks like this is going to be a great book~!

I'm wondering about this myself. Hmm, vulpinal agathion + a horny human... maybe this is where the kitsune of Golarion came from?


Garuda? Now that sounds interesting. I would love to play a holy bird man.


So. Much. WANT!

Contributor

Holy crap, that cover art is amazing!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yes, the cover art is amazing.

I wonder if we will get a feat tree that can give an Aasimar feathered wings.


Preordered this and Blood of Fiends, they just sound like good additions to my growing collection of PFRPG material.

Both Blood of Fiends AND Blood of Angels will have portraits of ALL the variants, as well as a few full-body illustrations of variants mixed in with the typical aasimars and tieflings.

I want reaper minis! There is a serious shortage of aasimar and tiefling minis!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I always liked Aasimar better but Tieflings always got more love until now....well until june.

Cheliax

One of my favorite characters of all time was Litorian (catfolk) paladin called Num-Rah. I would love to recreate him as Leonal-descended asimar.

Grand Lodge

I am so excited about this book. If the included art is half as awesome as the cover, we will have a super winner on our hands.
I'm really hopeful about cleric and oracle racial archetypes.
Ooh! and magical haloes! And glowy eyes! And butt-kicking for Goodness!
*clutches PFS racial boon tightly*


So it's confirmed that we're getting an Aasimar specific Oracle Mystery as well as racial feats? I'm only asking as I don't see either of those mentioned in the description.


I want this so, so, so badly for my Life Oracle...


The updated art is probably the first time I've seen an aasimar look badass.

Most depictions of the race focus on the "serene, peaceful" aspect of angels with an extra helping of whimsy, and IMO draws too heavily from Tony DiTerlizzi's Planescape art. Which was perfect for Planescape, but not for any other D&D/Pathfinder setting.

Silver Crusade

A whole 16 days... I CAN'T WAIT!!!!

-_-

*foams at the mouth*

So, after that, not long at all until it gets put in herolab. this is good.

I just wanted to let everyone know that this book is being pushed back to a July release. It is currently on hold in customs and won't be delivered in time to make this month's subscription run.


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

NNNNNNoooooo

I mean, Oh fiddle sticks.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So close yet so far away.

are you serious???


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Maps Subscriber

No, this is actually a late April Fools joke...

Spoiler:
Unfortunately, yes, he's serious.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

That's disappointing, but my wallet is definitely grateful to space out a book or two from June to July.

+1, this month's subs shipment was looking a bit too scary for an overseas customer...


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Now, the schedule page says that blood of Angel ships in July but is in stock,is it a bug or what?

Aasimar being held up in customs? Sounds like racial profiling to me! :p


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

It wouldn't have bothered me if it was an AP or something else but this along with Adanced races book are really high on my interest list. Well at least it's only a month away.

Someone heard they were outsiders, and now they have to prove that they're native. ;)
