Discover Your Noble Side!

Adventure is not limited to forbidding dungeons and grimy back alleys; sometimes the greatest risks and rewards are found in the gleaming halls of queens and emperors. Pathfinder Player Companion: Heroes of the High Court presents everything you need to take your escapades into the royal courts and noble houses of Golarion. Learn how to dress and act in high society, gain access to the echelons of political power, and take advantage of the privileges afforded to those who have mastered the arts of courtly intrigue!

Inside this book, you'll find:

  • Archetypes for a variety of classes, such as the court fool bard to the butterfly blade slayer, who performs a noble's dirty work in the shadows.
  • Equipment and magical courtly regalia suitable for any ruler, including thrones that grant great power to whoever earns the right to sit upon them!
  • New traits, feats, and spells for characters who wish to mingle with nobility, as well as new tactics that let a participant of a verbal duel cut her opponent down to size.

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

Hopefully this will be useful for those who wish to rescue dragons from princesses.

Ah, this work was in Andoran, Birthplace of Freedom. Very fine book, that! Kind of ironic you should use this art as a place holder for a High Court book when Andoran doesn't truly have a High Court as it is a democracy.
I approve of this Player Companion. I shall continue my subscription...you guys keep doing that to me! Stop being so innovative (not really!).

Ooh… sounds fun! Intrigue-ish, but with extra focus on not getting caught casting? (A la Enchanting Courtesan.)

If a linnorm has taken your princess, she's probably already dead.


Maybe but she might also be singing to it, Mister Augunas.

You know, if that princess is badass enough to abduct a Linnorm, I think I may just leave her alone.

Clearly this is for after you have rescued the princess from the dragon and want to be able to talk to her after. Or for talking to the princess to rescue the dragon.

Is it weird that reading the title made think that we were getting an Attorney class?

Neither. Princesses being rescued from linnorms. The former is just weird to me. The later proves that the princesses are probably high level adventurers.

I hope this book has some info into the House Jeggare and other famous noble families from the inner sea.

I'd actually like that since I could use a few more nobles to play with.

Also Marco, pretty interesting idea there.

If the princess abducts a linnorm, wouldn't that put her on the road to becoming the next queen of the Lands of the Linnorm Kings?

Also: nice addition&flavor for the Kingmaker AP and hopefully RP in general!

Ruyan.


Ruyan,

Yes which is why I said she's must be a high level adventurer to capture a Linnorm alive.

I need a character concept that will let me use the name Clarence Derro for the social identity. This must be a thing. ;)

On a more serious note, this book does look like it might be useful. I like the Vigilante, but I don't feel like I can really get use out of the social identity at the moment. Hopefully this will help.


Awesome!

It would be pretty cool if the opposite was also written. Like heroes of the common folk or something.

Yeah I thought that's what we already got with Heroes of the Street, Quid.

As it has already been said, "Heroes of the Streets". Rather under-rated book, that. I really liked it. My fave archetype for the Investigator is in it: The Lamplighter. The cool spell Coin Shot is in there, too.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

This looks very cool! Of course, by the time that this book comes out, the game that this would have been most useful for will have completed that chapter.

I so far have always found a use for something in all of the books, even the ones I didn't expect to find something in.

I'm just looking at how they'll make princesses epic level adventurers to fight linnorms to bring back with them as pets so they call be called the Mother of Dragons. ;)


I hope this interacts with Ultimate Campaign.

*hopes it interacts with linnorms, Legacy of Dragons and mythic princesses*


This looks like it will be a neat book. One of the things I liked in the 3.5 Dragonlance setting was the use of the noble class. Is there something similar in Pathfinder?

Thank you. The noble was a player class.


Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

There's a "noble scion" prestige class that requires the "noble scion" feat.

Green Ronin has had a few takes on the Noble class, and it's been updated to Pathfinder as of the Pirate's Guide to Freeport.

Some stuff from their website on the class;

Quote:

The Noble

Shortly after the 3.5 edition hit the shelves, Green Ronin released the Noble’s Handbook, a Master Class sourcebook that provided a comprehensive rules set for running games set among the elite society of your fantasy world. A solid class with lots of support, it was a great book that took our favorite game in a new direction. Several years later, I felt it was time to revisit this class. I wanted to remain true to Rodney Thompson’s design, but give the noble a bit of a power boost for games that don’t necessarily involve noble houses.

The noble’s primary role is to lead and to lead the noble needed a bunch of abilities that would give him minions, give him tools to boost his allies, and also represent the noble’s connections. Since the original noble class gave the character the Leadership feat, I decided to ground the noble’s abilities there. Unlike other classes, the noble picks up and can use the Leadership at 1st level. The normal limitations on the feat prevent the noble from gaining a cohort until 3rd level. As well, a noble still can’t pick up followers until his score is at least 10, so there are some barriers to power. The noble uses his Leadership score for his inspire abilities. Like the bard, inspire allows the noble to boost his allies and weaken his foes. To do so, the noble makes a Leadership check (1d20 + his leadership) score and the effects last for a number of rounds equal to one-half the noble’s class level. The noble begins with one inspire ability, but as he advances, he gains more. Options include awe, competence, courage, complacency, fear, and several others, offering ways to distinguish nobles from each other.

*wonders if the Noble can take home mythic princesses that have linnorms as pets*

The vigilante's social identity and the phantom thief rogue archetype both do a decent job, in my opinion. ^_^

In addition, the noble scion prestige class (noted earlier) is an option as you level up.

Digging it. Hopefully between this and books like Ultimate Intrigue, we might be moving in a direction towards alternative means of advancing in class and level beyond just the traditional "killin' stuff."
