New Pathfinder Player Companion available!

Whether you're tilting at windmills or charging into battle on behalf of your liege, the latest Pathfinder Player Companion has plenty of options for your knightly character!

If you've been missing knights in shining armor from your Pathfinder game, the wait is over—Pathfinder Player Companion: Knights of the Inner Sea is here! Inside, you will find details on the kind of knights that exist within the many countries of the Inner Sea. Whether you're in service to the diabolical House Thrune as a heavily armored hellknight, a magic-wielding Riftwardens, or a lightly armored Steel Falcon, this is the perfect book to begin your career as a knight! You'll get roles that will help you plot out choices for your character, traits like Cold Heart, Demon Eradicator, and Orc Impaler, and further information on groups like the Knights of Ozem, Mendevian Crusaders, and the Risen Guard!

But not everybody starts out as a knight—you've got to earn your spurs (sometimes literally). With that in mind, we've created a number of new archetypes in Knights of the Inner Sea, ones specifically devoted to the kinds of squires a knight-errant might require, such as a combat healer, herald, or weapon bearer. Even better, we've created the Squire feat, which allows your character to attract a 1st-level cohort to serve you—but it also gets swapped out for the Leadership feat when you qualify for it! (No feat burn necessary!) Finally, what is a knight without their noble steed? More than just horses and ponies, Knights of the Inner Sea has guidelines for unusual mounts like blink dogs, griffons, kirin, and worgs, but also for more earthly creatures like Lastwall's Dort chargers and Qadiran dromedaries!

Check out all of our Pathfinder Player Companions right here, and stay tuned for the Blood of the Night and People of the North!

As the ECW mutants used to put it...

"THIS IS AWESOME!" clap-clap-clapclapclap!

I'm going to have to order this one direct from you; I won't be patient enough to wait for it to hit the stores. I'm especially interested in the information on squires, new mounts (we get worgs? Any chance on winter wolves for medium-sized characters?), and the archetypes.

By the way, will there be any new Cavalier orders? Or any information on how to integrate the existing Cavalier orders with Golarion? Really, do the orders have chapter houses in various nations, or grandmasters, or what have you? I'd be thrilled to see a Hellknight order.

Thank you so much for this book, Paizo!

Yes!

Less so, but yes.

The cavalier orders are not treated as literal organizations but rather as philosophies particular knights follow. Many knights of specific orders thus gravitate toward certain true knighthoods, such as order of the star cavaliers being drawn to the Knights of Ozem or order of the shield cavaliers fitting in well with the Eagle Knights.

We don't provide organization specific orders, but we give you TONS on how knights of certain orders think and act. After this, you should have way more insight into what makes a Hellknight (or a variety of other knights) tick.

Yay! Hope you dig it!


Thank you for all the answers Mister Schneider. The information on new orders and how the orders fit into Golarion will be especially helpful; I've been wondering for a long time just how cavalier orders worked as organizations.

I am very much looking forward to this. I have a noble in my game who has won, through some trials and diplomacy, the right to claim a griffon as his mount. He plays a very knightly character in keeping with his noble lineage. This will make that much easier to do the knight thing with any member of my group.

Enjoying it, my only complaints would be so far:

A - the Cavalier could really use a more-dungeon friendly archetype, was hoping it would be here. The horse-statue spell seems handy (Reminds me of Urban Arcana and the animal lord turning his companion into a stuffed animal)

B - The gender of the squire is a bit ambiguous =p

Well it's meant to be considering that Squires and Knights in pathfinder can be men or women, even though the mental image of a knight or squire is male. and some people might like having a squire of opposite gender, and some of the same. it's all about preferences.

Naaah. You'll have to wait for the Dungeoneer's Handbook for that. Don't worry man, I gotcha covered.

I love that THAT's your complaint. :)

She's a she. And I really like the tomboy look.


Oh! the complaint was about a picture in the book. I didn't know since i don't have it yet and that it wasn't specified as an image in the book.

I really wish you could subscribe and just get the PDF. I don't have anything against hard copies, I would get them if I could, but my pit of money is not that big enough sadly.

I'd call that a "reverse trap" ;), we need more bishy characters like Ruarc in CotCT. Some people may b!!%# it's too JRPGish but Pathfinder has lots of manly men already, time for some less manly.
