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.

Sweet. And nice author choice on this one. Looking forward to it!

I wonder if that supposed "Celestial Totem" line of Rage powers will make a show. I'm guessing not though :(

AWESOME, I can't wait for some Aasimar love....and this book too;)

Well that educated guess was right. ;)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Maps Subscriber

Very, very nice! I had let my Companions subscription go a few months back (and recently resubscribed) and very glad I did so... lots of great Companions coming along soon... this one (Blood of Angels) and the previous Blood of Fiends... very happy to be back on the Companions "bandwagon". :)

Silver Crusade

Yes! Very much looking forward to this. Really hoping they get the same range and variation that's been promised for tieflings, especially considering how weird celestials can get.

YOUR BELIEF IS FUTILE.


Re: different celestial bloodlines: This and Blood of Fiends inclines me to believe that ifrits, oreads, suli, sylphs, and undines should have all been rolled together into a single "genie-kin" race with rules for different bloodlines, especially since the ones other than the suli are really lackluster.

Wow we got stuff for Angels, Azatas, Agathions, Archons, Garudas, and Peris. I didn't expect them to have Garudas and Peris as well, thats cool.


What about an Angel subdomain for priests of Good?
No, what about a subdomain for EACH good outsider race?
What about three Books of the Blessed to match the three Book of the Damned?
What about...


June?? :(

Than half of europe is probably burried underneath the waves created by that horrible spanish-coast volcano already... I hate that volcano already... ;)


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I want it now,
But I'll be patient.

Osirion

I don't even know what garudas and peris *are* yet, and I'm exited to see bloodline options for them.

All celestial and fiendish creatures being lumped under the celestial and fiendish templates (or half-celestial and half-fiendish templates), when an archon and an eladrin (azata, whatever), or a demon and devil are so different mechanically, always bugged me a little, so it's *awesome* to hear that aasimar connected to angels won't necessarily have the same base abilities or modifiers as one connected to garudas or whatever.

I so agree with that statement, but go a little farther,

even the devils and demons have an internal diversity
as do the angels, archons, and azatas.


It's going to be interesting to see the differences between this from Paizo and our own product. Obviously this ought to be a lot more thorough since it's only focusing on the Celestial side.

Raging is inherently chaotic, and sometimes evil. It's never good. :P

Also, this is awesome to hear. I'm hoping some of the information from this rubs off on the Advanced Race Guide. I recently played an angel-blooded aasimar cleric, and having more fluff is always fun.

You can have a Chaotic Good cleric with the Rage subdomain, so...nyah.

Silver Crusade

Hoping there's still options I can add to my aasimar post-creation for PFS. At least I can put them in for a home campaign if I carry him over. Purchasing for sure, regardless.

But, but, but, George Lucas, the philopher-priest who defined my generation's sense of right and wrong, said that 'fear leads to anger and anger leads to hate, and hate leads to, um, really crappy prequels?'

Wait. Let me go consult the Book of Armaments...

Barbarian azatas and angels.

Righteous, primal fury born out of moral outrage in the face of evil.

Someone throwing caution to the wind and letting the full wrath of Chaotic Good Elysium flow through him.

Wild rager/frenzied barbarian aren't the standard for raging, and those are the only ragers that are inherently dangerous to innocents.

I can't wait to see what the traits they get are like and any feats as well.

I am so looking forward to this, just for the agathion options if nothing else.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am hoping for feats that improve there resistances, add more spell like abilities, and maybe add some other celestial traits/abilities.

Looks like Raging Swan wanted to be Paizo to the punch!

Ever since Blood of Angels was announced, the aasimar have started to grow on me.

So will they have art for each aasimar variant(angel, azata, etc.)?

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.

How about portraits of aasimar/tiefling mixes? :-)
