I read the Incantations in Deep Magic and then I picked up 5 PDFs from Necromancers of the Northwest:
Weekly Wonders: Infernal Rituals
That should get me started. Still way more material out there than my weak google-fu lead me to believe.
Hmmm. Usually I only buy printed books or print on demand products. I have too many PDFs that have gone completely unread. But, I may have to reconsider that position. This looks interesting. Thanks.

Yup, Necromancer's of the Northwest have a few others too, and Paranormal Adventures under the Everyman Gaming label added a bunch (probably my favs of any)! In addition to what others have mentioned, the Spheres of Power core book and its expansions have been adding incantations for use under its magic system that could easily be repurposed as occult rituals. Hope that helps!
I will look into these as well. There appears to be way more material than I expected to find. Thank you.

There are some in Distant Shores, Occult Origins, and Horror Adventures for sure.
Thanks. I will pick these up. I would have gotten to Horror Adventures eventually anyway. I just hadn't quite bought it yet because I figured it would just end up in the to-read pile for awhile.
But, the others weren't even on my radar.
Just about everything about them interests me. It was by far my favorite part of Occult Adventures and I had no idea anything like it had been done before in Pathfinder.
The first thing that came to mind when reading the Occult Rituals was the seeds of an adventure I had in my head regarding a haunted house. In addition to the possibility of undead creatures and haunts I thought it might be interesting to rid the house of its evil through some sort of ritual.
But, since then, I'm open to any Rituals/Incantations.
Wow! I actually have Deep Magic but I had completely skipped over that chapter because it contained Words of Power and that just didn't interest me at all.
I am aware of Incantations in Theory and Practice but didn't realize it was compatible with Occult Rituals.
At first glance they look completely compatible as is. It seems to me that the incantations are a bit less forgiving on the number of missed saves but at the same time they seem to be more powerful.
I'm not sure I ever even looked at Unearthed Arcana back in the day. I'm sure I don't have it but I believe I have friends I can borrow it from.

I'm patient (I already have too much to read) and I will just order it whenever it comes out. I just did not want to be waiting around for a product only to find that it had long ago been cancelled.
Ezren would be from Glantri. I believe it is mentioned that he is an atheist and it just so happens that so is Glantri other than token honor of Rad.
Harsk would be from Rockhome, Highforge in Karameikos, or Denwarf-Hurgon in Alphatia.
I could see Seoni being from Alphatia. Or for that matter Glantri or Herath or even Karameikos with its College of Magecraft.
Lem would be from the Five Shires.
Kyra might be from Ylaruam or better yet from Thotia on the Isle of Dawn. Or less likely from Nithia in the Hollow World.
Merisiel would be from Alfheim, Glantri, Karameikos, or from Shiye-Lawr in Alphatia.
Not to drive you crazy, BUT what ever happened about doing that small 3PP psionics book that 3PP publisher could use in their book?

Additionally, the project Louis mentioned is one that's only been discussed internally between us and him and has never been "announced" as a formal release.
I would love to read more about this one even if it never materializes. And if you do find the time for it I would likely order it when it came out. I seem to be on a Dreamscarred Press buying kick lately - Psionics Unleashed, Ultimate Psionics, Path of War - and I am already eyeing some other things.
I'm pretty much the same way. Well, except for the panties. I've never noticed much of anything wrong with any Pathfinder hardcover other than the logo on the side of Bestiary 3. But, the ACG had so many issues that I noticed. And if I am noticing them then I think they have to be pretty bad. I'm really hoping they worked out the editing problems in time for this one.

Ah. Thank you for explaining that.
Now that I actually looked at the AP logo I am wondering how long it would have taken me to actually notice. I was envisioning a very different looking logo like the PFS one.
The image in this post shows the book with the correct logo. I don't suppose you guys have an image showing what it will really look like, do you?
I think someone else already mentioned this upthread a bit. But, what about the proof copy? I'm probably wrong here but it was my understanding that the way this worked was that after all changes were made the printer sends off a proof copy. And if everything looks good then the order is printed. If a change is made then another proof copy is sent out. Is that not actually how it works?
This isn't actually the first time the wrong logo has been used on a hardcover. Compare the logo on the spine of Bestiary 3 to the logos used on all of the other hardcovers.
I guess I am alone in thinking that an included sticker with the correct logo to slap on the front of the ACG sounded like an awesome idea. Or even better than that - a sticker already applied so I wouldn't have to.
Wait. That at least explains why I couldn't find the Shadowsfall Gazetteer Kickstarter.
So, the announcement that the Shadowsfall Gazetteer was being cancelled was made in a private backer update to a different product? So, even if you knew to look in the wrong pace for it then you couldn't even view it? I can't find this announcement on the JBE website or Facebook page. The plan really was to let this one quietly die.
I get where they are coming from on the cancellation. I can understand, maybe even appreciate the reasoning. And I wish them the best on other products and systems. But, from a customer service standpoint I do think the people who bought the Shadow Plane Player's Companion, Monsters of the Shadow Plane, and Shadowsfall Favored Class Options in anticipation of the release of the Gazetteer deserve a little bit better than that - you know, at least an actual announcement.

Woah! What's this now? I had no idea that was an option or I would most likely have gotten it. Heck, even though my order apparently just shipped I'm still considering it.
