Lure ancient spirits to bargain for their supernatural power.

Immerse yourself in the ancient rituals and legends of pact magic. Grab thick chalk, gather totems, inscribe a geometric sigil, and invoke the name of an inchoate and terrible spirit from the Dark Beyond to aid your quest.

Behold! With a final flourish, you surrender to the spirit and a quivering surge of power emanates from deep within. Are you ready? Follow paths once trodden by shivering demons and martyred titans, lost mortals and chastised gods. Within this occult pages, the vestiges of 144 sundered souls lie at your fingertips, yours to command if you dare.

You will discover:

  • The pactmaker class with access to binder secrets.
  • Archetype options to integrate pactmaking into 30 popular classes.
  • Feats, spells, and magic items suited to binding of spirits.
  • One hundred forty-four bindable spirits from across the ages. Each spirit includes a legend, granted abilities, and more.
  • Six prestige classes, seven organizations and three alternate planes of existence well-suited to occult adventures.
  • Occult creatures, pactmaker background generator, pact maladies, dangerous ravager spirits, and more.
  • Ideas for GMs to integrate pact magic into their campaign settings.
  • This FULL COLOR tome brings together and replaces prior renditions of pact magic including "Secrets of Pact Magic" by Dario Nardi and adapted works by Alex Augunas. All classes, spirits, etc are entirely rewritten from the ground up.

Huzzah! Thanks, Rick!

It's been a LONG time coming, but we've FINALLY got print books for the Grimoire of Lost Souls in the Paizo store!

If you missed the Kickstarter and want a copy of this gorgeous, full-color book, now's the time to pick one up! If you participated in the Kickstarter, never fear—your book is already on its way to you!

If you're new to the schtick, Pact Magic is an interactive magic system where you seek out and summon powerful, otherworldly spirits and bargain with them for power. Gone are the days where you simply "know" your spells, as a binder of spirits you'll need to wrest every spell-like and supernatural ability you desire from the greedy grasps of the spirits that empower you. So gather your totems, practice a ceremony or two, and prepare for your Pathfinder RPG game to never again be the same with the Grimoire of Lost Souls!

Aaaand for those who'd like to know more about the content, you can check out my in-depth review where things are discussed in detail. ^^ Suffice to say that there is quite a lot of stuff in this book.

I hope this one sells well. It's one heck of a great book!

Dario and I discussed it. The plan is to offer a PDF/Print bundle for $69.99. Keep your eyes peeled! :D

Me too! We're going to try some advertisement push after PaizoCon, but word of mouth is the best advertisement you can get. ;-)


Do you have an approximate date for the bundle? If it'll be just a few days, I'll hold out, but if it'll be some months, I'll take just the hardcopy now and maybe pick up the PDF sometime down the line.

In other news, you mentioned behavior analysis in a comment somewhere or other. Do you have any advice for someone looking to begin a career in ABA? So far my job search is... frustrating.

Dario sent a message to Rick Hunz last night about the bundle, so I imagine it'll be done some time next week after the PaizoCon dust settled.

Right now, I'm working on my Masters in Applied Behavior Analysis (specifically for Education) so I don't really have any tips or advice to get in anywhere as a BCBA. Good luck!


That's awesome! I just didn't want to wait until Christmas or something.

And bought. Super excited to get it in the mail and, when a character slot opens up, play one!


Out of curiosity, what type of character do you think you might want to play?

(The Pactmaker base class is the real master of Pact Magic - and almost frighteningly flexible in its variety of builds - but the archetypes included in the book also mean you can add Pact Magic to a class you're more familiar with.)

Probably Pactmaker, as the Binder was always my favorite. Others are always cool too, but being the best is always fun. <o/
