Abandon All Hope!

As long as mortals have feared what awaits them after death, the threat of damnation has loomed. Powerful fiendish lords rule the deepest, darkest reaches of the Great Beyond: archdevils, demon lords, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and more. Such is the power of their evil that even angels cannot resist it—when one servant of Heaven cataloged all the evil in existence in the Book of the Damned, Heaven's judges doomed him to exile, appalled at what he had wrought. And now you hold those horrors in your hands!

Pathfinder RPG Book of the Damned explores the evil planes and their fiendish rulers as they exist in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. This imaginative tabletop game builds upon more than 10 years of system development and an open playtest featuring more than 50,000 gamers to create a cutting-edge RPG experience that brings the all-time best-selling set of fantasy rules into a new era.

Pathfinder RPG Book of the Damned includes:

  • Descriptions for dozens of archdevils, demon lords, Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and other fiendish divinities, including the foul boons they grant to their most devoted followers.
  • Explorations of otherworldly fiendish realms, including the infernal reaches of Hell, the death-haunted expanses of Abaddon, and the nightmare depths of the Abyss.
  • Several brand-new monsters to fill out the ranks of all 11 of the fiendish races, from sinister classics such as demons and devils to new favorites like asuras and sahkils.
  • New blasphemous rituals, magic items, powerful artifacts, and spells to arm your villains with or for heroes to discover and defy.
  • Three fiend-focused prestige classes, ready to vex and terrify adventurers who dare stand against their plots.
  • An extensive collection of in-world excerpts from the sinister pages of the Book of the Damned itself.
  • ... and much, much more!

I trust this won't simply be reprints, will it?

You're bringing out so much good-fun-creepy stuff later this year.

Yes please! Hopefully this means we will also start seeing 64 page books in the Campaign Setting line for other chapters of the Book of the Damned A BotD for Oni, Kytons, Asura, Divs, etc. would be great!


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Looking forward to more Queens of the Night, assuming they have had more reworked other than their name.


Ok, this exceeds my expectations! Freaking awesome! I hope this also means we will begetting the other outer planes in hardback eventually.

I'm curious on how much "reprints" are in this as well. Taking into account the Bestiary 6 as well as prior printed materials.

I can't wait to get obedience/boons for horsemen and hopefully harbingers. If we're getting harbingers I really want to see Slandrais, Braismois, Jacarkas, and Llamolaek.

I'll be ok with Folca, Anogetz, Laivatiniel, or Ruapceras.


Plaus,

I wouldn't mind a few harbingers that's for sure.

Nope.

In that I just finished developing it last Monday, that is. So the present tense is no longer accurate. :-P

James is so nice, he often releases awesome books around my birthday!

(Yes, I am aware you likely have nothing to do with a book's release. I am still giving you credit, cuz I don't wanna be dino chow, lol)

I also hope that we don't get too, too much in the way of reprints, though they will likely be some. Even if 25% or so is reprinted, I would still super love this book!

James, three quick questions if you will:

1. How much (roughly) of this is reprinted material from "Book of the Damned Vol. 1-3" or the Bestiaries (6 included) and how much is all new content?

2. Are there stats for the so far unrevealed Demon Lords in this?

3. Is this book the reason we don´t get a Campaign Setting in september?

Thank you.

Well, Villain Codex has been 256 and i think Horror Adventures has been around the same (maybe 280), so that seems to be the new page count for these books...

This is going to sound odd...

While I think I am going to enjoy this book...I was kinda hoping for something else...the odd part is I do not know what I was hoping for...maybe something less focused. Shrug...

Anyway as I said i am sure I will enjoy this book.

Key highlights from the product's bullet points tells me there's going to be (hopefully plenty of) new stuff.

Book of the Damned wrote:
  • Information on the sinister boons granted worshipers of dozens of fiendish demigods drawn from the planes of Abaddon, the Abyss, and Hell, including Archdevils, Demon Lords, and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
  • New feats, spells, magic items, and prestige classes for use by characters who both fight against and serve the forces of darkness.
  • Statistics for several never-before revealed fiends and lavishly-illustrated in-world excerpts from the pages of the notorious Book of the Damned itself.

  • Eric Hinkle wrote:

    If the reprint ratio is like in the Bestiary line or in Inner Sea Gods (which duplicated some content from the Faiths of X books), it will be quite low. Further, reprints in a hardcover will result in more usage of this content.

    Given I asked for such a compilation a while ago, I feel the strange urge to defend it - so I might be biased...

    I'd give up my firstborn for a hardcover Book of the Righteous. Especially if it's the actual Book of the Righteous.

    obviously the focus of the book will be on the three big fiend groups, but will some of the other fiends also get more detail? e.g. Kytons, Asuras, Divs, etc?

    Color me disappointed, mostly because I don't want my players playing evil but hate to take away their shiny new toys. Hopefully this means that we will be getting equivalent books for the good-aligned and neutral-aligned planes, though. I'd love to see an in-depth gazetteer of Axis and obediences for the empyreal lords.


    1 person marked this as a favorite.

    The real potential of this book is in the never "seem" before demigods getting more in deep information and illustrations!

    I'm talking about those we already known but have never actually "seem", like the Oinodaemon, the Queens of the Night... Or even quasi-deities, like Harbingers, infernal dukes and nascent demon lords... I love demigods, but quasi-deities are really useful. That's also a really good opportunity to include all the three EVIL GIGAS (the Abbadon Gigas, the Abyss Gigas and the Hell Gigas) in the same book.

    What about qlippoth lords or asura ranas? I don't think we are getting anything about the "minor" fiendish races, or at least I don't want my expectations to disappoint me. Guess we will have to wait to find out how good this book really is. It's already a must to me, however.

    "An exploration of the infernal realms of Hell, the sinister reaches of Abaddon, and the bottomless rifts of the Abyss" is alone enough for me to buy it.
