Inner Sea Gods: Character Options

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Well, we've previously looked at the art and the deities featured in Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Inner Sea Gods, and now it's time to look at some of the new character options presented in the book.

This book features three all-new prestige classes, each offering different abilities depending on which of the 20 core deities the character worships. That's 60 different iterations of the prestige classes! The classes are the evangelist (a jack-of-all trades that serves as a divine-themed version of the character's other class[es]), exalted (a deity-specific prestige class for divine spellcasters), and sentinel (a full-BAB prestige class for holy warriors).

There's more to Inner Sea Combat than just prestige classes, however! In fact, there's something here for followers of dozens of religions who want to stick with a single class their whole career. We've got new feats, religion traits, subdomains, and spells, including spawn calling, which allows the caster to summon one of Rovagug's mighty spawn, and comes with a mythic upgrade to bring about even more destruction.

In addition to scores of new faith-themed magic items, Inner Sea Gods also presents a new type of magic item—altars. These stationary places of worship grant bonuses to those characters who pray at them each day.

That's all for today, but check back soon for one more look inside Inner Sea Gods, when we'll examine a few of the creatures that make up the book's sizable bestiary. Inner Sea Gods is already on its way to distributors, and will be available in retail stores and to subscribers in the near future. You can preorder the book here.

Theres a typo on the third paragraph, it says inner sea combat instead of gods.

Yeah, but otherwise YES PLEASE. Unfortunately, I went to sign up for subscription to start with this book because so many of the next several are books I want and it is already not one you can start with. This makes me sad.

Very excited about both of this month's campaign setting books.


REALLY loving Gorum's new look! I was never thrilled with his old artwork.

I'm going hang onto that Sentinel artwork. It is exactly what I have in mind for when my WotR character tries to found a new Hellknight order.

eh, it happens. Most of our editing resources are currently aimed at our Gen Con releases, so a slip up here and there on the blog is inevitable.

I believe that customer service can manually start your subscription with a different product in a month when more than one product in a given line ship (as is the case this month with this and Inner Sea Combat. It may be worth your while to email or call them, or to start a thread regarding this issue in the Customer Service section of the message boards.

Mark is correct. Double release months get sticky for starting subscription options and customer service is happy to help sort things out for people who may have starting or stopping subscription issues because of the double up.

If you ever see a subscription or product or shopping cart/order acting in a way that doesn't seem right or normal, please let customer service know by posting in the customer service forum, shooting us an email or giving us a call. We are happy to investigate and see if we can fix things, or, at the very least, explain why the issue is behaving a certain way.

thanks!

Quite excited to get my copy of this book. I'm glad there are at least a few mythic options sprinkled in there.

Can we expect to be seeing more support for the mythic ruleset in further releases?

When appropriate, yes, in the same way we support firearms, performance combat, and other rules subsystems presented in past books. There are currently no plans to do a book entirely of new mythic content, however.

Will the prestige classes introduced have more support in the future? What I mean by this is: are there going to be options to be these prestige classes for some of the non-core deities For example, will I ever be able to be, say, a sentinel of Apsu?

Mace and pentagram, GM. Swords are for followers of lesser deities.

Besides, who wants to take fashion advice from Gorum?

Speaking of gods...

Oh My God!

This is the first time I've noticed your new avatar image, Mark!


I really like this.

Especially the artwork for Gorum's altar. Really badass.
