Unleash righteous fury and vanquish those who oppose your noble call to arms! Join the forces of good or evil in your pursuit to spread the word of your liege, or dedicate yourself to a religious or personal code of knightly conduct. Whether you’re a muscle-bound weapon of faith bedecked in steel plate or a spellcaster devoted to the god of magic, this volume offers countless options to those who walk the elite path of knighthood.

Knights of the Inner Sea presents a player-focused, in-depth discussion of what it means to be a knight on the world of Golarion, where every day is a trial against forces that seek to enslave or obliterate humanity, and it’s up to a stalwart few to fight back against the elements of corruption for the betterment of all. Every Pathfinder Player Companion includes new options and tools for every Pathfinder RPG player.

    Inside this book, you’ll find:
  • An in-depth analysis of the various kinds of knights that roam the Inner Sea region, and roles that help define exactly what these diverse orders stand for.
  • New spells, magic items, character options, and traits to help knightly adventurers distinguish themselves as glorious champions of their causes.
  • A detailed dissection of a knight’s armaments and her horse’s barding, as well as an exploration of heraldry and its function throughout the Inner Sea.
  • New rules for mounts both monstrous and bestial, including descriptions and traits for some of the Inner Sea’s most prominent breeds.
  • Rules for acquiring a loyal squire to aid a knight in her noble endeavors, including new archetypes to further specialize these stalwart sidekicks.

This Pathfinder Player Companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, but can easily be incorporated into any fantasy world.

Written by Dylan Birtolo, Gareth Hanrahan, Steve Kenson, Patrick Renie, Tork Shaw, and Jerome Virnich.

Each monthly 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 all types of characters, as well as traits to better anchor the player to the campaign.

Note: Dylan Birtolo's name was inadvertently left off the credits page. Sorry about that, Dylan!

There's going to be a Knight base class? Yay!

(I jest! I jest)


AWESOME!

You know what would be awesome? Cavalier orders for each knighthhood. Not that you have to be a cavalier to be a knight (I'm sure most knights of ozem are paladins), but a cavalier knight of ozem who is also a member of the order of the dragon is a kinda... stretching verisimulitude.

Sounds interesting, especially new types of mounts.

spells and magic items both for and against knights.

Dragon riders? :D

The order of Arshea better be moody and blue despite (or perhaps because) they dress in white silks.

Silver Crusade

Yes! The Mighty Steve Kenson doing Pathfinder work!

I'm all in!

Wouldn't that be white satin? Never reaching the end?

Steve Kenson really I have never seen any non super hero stuff from him


Oh yes !

Could we expect any taldorian knight order in this one ?

Scarab Sages Star Voter 2013

Yes! Now we're talkin'. I hope we'll see specialized options for dragonslayers/monsterslayers! (Beyond the slaying adventurers do anyways, lol)

He wrote an article in the guide to the River Kingdoms among other things.

The mention of the squire tickles me. Could I have my own celestial cohort at my side carring my arms? "Sword number nine, Jeeves!" "I hear you, milady!" *__*

Awesome I daresay, awesome indeed.
I can hardly wait to get my hands on this!

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Want!


Such a long wait. It will be worth it, though.


An opportunity for Paladins and Cavaliers to get some new toys. I'll look for this at my local gaming shop.

Silver Crusade

Sweet! I have a Mendevian pali-archer. This will be perfect. Sold!


Ya know I've been hoping for some Knights of Ozem info. I'm glad James Jacobs and crew got my telepathic plea.

And its in a line I already subscribe to? awesome!

I'm hoping there's some nifty Inquisitor stuff in here too, as I have one of Iomedae. Sounds like its possible with line at the end. Not specific necessarily but stuff that could be used by them too.

moody blues.......

I'm not that old...how do I know this


I already want this one!

And any chance we'll see neutral and evil knightly orders? I'd like seeing a knightly order (and maybe even a cavalier order) devoted to Asmodeus, for instance. And a Gorumite order would also be cool.

I'm not hugely keen on religious orders, more excited for local groups and traditions.

Will this contain yet a third version of the Hellknight prestige class? I'm still not sure why it was compacted down to ten levels.

Shadow Lodge Star Voter 2013

Awesome. I'm hoping for more religious orders and less generic knight of this country. A Knight Class, sweet. I loved the 3.5 one, even if other hated it.

I'm really hoping they take a look through Knightly Orders of Ansalon for inspiration here.

Shadow Lodge Star Voter 2013

Or an Ustalavian dark knight type. . .

The word "Ustalavic" does appear in this book multiple times. Though I can't promise the word "knight" always follows.


Ustalavic is fine.... just aslong as there are no Baron von underbite typ npcs t go with any ustalav type prc......

oh wait that was underland or something.

New Mounts? Finally a Non-bonded mount that won't die to a single arrow? I hope we get rules for finally riding griffins and Hippogriffs, it would be nice to play a Sable Company Marine without having to resort to playing the ranger archetype.

Recruiting squires though... I shall name mine Sancho Panza!

Any chance we'll see a PrC for each of the orders? Or at least some archetypes?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Any chance of seeing some cool style feats based on your weapon like Zweihander style?
Sorta Stone Dragon big hit stuff

Or Kali Style (Shadow Hand) type stuff?

Knights had styles too, not just monks.

I'd love it if we'd see Knight Orders for non-standard races. Mainly thinking a Knight Order of Hobgoblins could work perfectly. I don't mean exclusively for them, but run by them.

Similarly I could easily see a Tengu order focusing on pretty swordplay, among other things.


Nifty. Added to the want list.


Maybe they will do elven unicorn riders?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Information on knightly steeds and breeds of horses? That alone makes me want this.

And I hope we get some hints on how to fit the various cavalier orders into Golarion. For instance, what conflicts of interest might there be with a Hellknight cavalier between his Hellknight order and his cavalier order?


There is also another great book on knights out there. It is by MWP productions. Knightly Orders of Ansalon has some great info on generic knights.

Rules for strange mounts like Unicorns, Dragons, Griffons, etc. would be nice.

Are there optional rules for the uses of a shrubbery?
