Sometimes rules supplements read like the world-setting bible of frustrated novelists. While solid world- building is a useful skill, you don't always need four paragraphs of flavor text to tell you swords are cool, magic is power, shadows are scary, and orcs are savage. Sometimes a GM doesn't have time to slog through a page of history for every magic weapon. Sometimes all that's needed are a few cool ideas, with just enough information to use them in a game. Sometimes, all you need are bullet points.

Bullet Points are a line of very short, cheap PDFs each of which gives the bare bones of a set of related options. It may be five spells, six feats, eight magic weapon special abilities, or any other short set of related rules we can cram into about a page. Short and simple, these PDFs are for GMs and players who know how to integrate new ideas into their campaigns without any hand-holding, and just need fresh ideas and the rules to support them. No in-character fiction setting the game world. No charts and tables. No sidebars of explanations and optional rules. Just one sentence of explanation for the High Concept of the PDF, then bullet points.

The High Concept: Four feats that give spellcasters more options when performing the most amazing magic available to mortals – restoring the dead to life. This includes breath of life, raise dead, reincarnate, resurrection, and true resurrection. This is the latest in a series of products to celebrate the "Summer of Bullets" event!

The feats included are:

  • Ferryman: You can bring back the dead with surprising ease.
  • Lore From Beyond the Pale: Those you bring back from death come with knowledge gained through their contact with spirits of the dead.
  • Rebirth: You don’t just restore the subject to life, you give them an entirely new life.
  • Selfless Resurrection: You can use your own life energy to restore the lives of others quickly.

Rebirth sounds very interesting.


Review up here and at RPGNow, blown away by this one Owen, very impressive.

Bought this and also quite liked it!


Lore From Beyond The Pale sounds like the kind of creepy thing some death cults would be into. You need an unanswerable question answered? Kill pne of your loyal flunkies, give them a few hours, and then raise them and ask your question. It's just that easy!

And as Dark_Mistress said, Rebirth sounds like a fascinating feat.

And thanks for the kind words! When raise dead was tagged by a lot of fans as an iconic spell they'd like to see a Bullet Point on, I was initially dumbfounded. I mean, the spell already brings the dead back t life! I actually said out loud "What am I gong to do, write a feat that lets people be double-not-dead?!"

Which, by the way, is what sparked the idea for rebirth.

But I'm also running a 16th level playtest campaign, where one of the PCs is the high priestess of a goddess of repose, so some things have come up which lead to ideas I'd been kicking around for a while. When I realized they'd fit this product, the rest of it came together.

I'm very glad you like the result!

Is a version available without the censor boxes? I only ask because they just look kinda dumb, and the art is otherwise really well-done.

No. The censor boxes were added (by us) out of a concern that otherwise we might not be license-compatible.

I'm not a fan of them, but given the sparsity of art in this product and the prominent placement, that was the final consensus. Given that when I've made such a call before I've been wrong, I kinda had to go with wiser council this time.

You could always post the uncensored art up on your web page.

So you know, I actually just spit water all over my desktop, that's freaking hilarious!!!!! :D


Interesting. These reminds me of the some of the effects brainstormed in the 1000 Ressurection Effects thread, or some of the similar threads which have popped up before on other messageboards.


And reviewed here, on DTRPG and sent to GMS magazine. Cheers!

Thanks for the review!

I note for Rebirth, it seemed to me since you can already live forever as long as you have access to reincarnate and wish (or skip the wish if you don't mind hopping species - being a lizardman doesn't seem any worse than being undead; or just use limited wish for the 4th level witch reincarnate in that case), there ought to be a way to do something similar with raise dead and its kin. Obviously YMMV, but it's far from the first spell option to bring back those who die of old age into young truly living bodies, and I suspect spending a feat on this is a lot rarer than a scroll and UMD.
