There is an unseen world all around you. On the streets and in the halls of power, in your dreams and across the bizarre planes of the multiverse, there are those who walk among us like giants among ants, twisting reality to their wills in their search for ancient knowledge. Now pull back the curtain of the mundane world and learn the secrets of these occult masters—if you dare!

Pathfinder RPG Occult Adventures is an indispensable companion to the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook. This imaginative tabletop game builds upon over 15 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 Occult Adventures includes:

  • Six new occult base classes—the energy-shaping kineticist, the spirit-calling medium, the deceptive mesmerist, the mind-bending psychic, the uncanny occultist, and the phantom-binding spiritualist.
  • Archetypes for all of the new classes, as well as a broad selection of strange and mysterious archetypes and class options for existing characters.
  • New feats to flesh out your occult character, plus a whole new way to use existing skills to become a master of faith healing, hypnotism, psychometry, and more!
  • More than 100 spells using the all-new psychic magic system, plus rituals that grant even non-spellcasting characters occult power! Explore worlds beyond imagining with dream voyage, or defend yourself from mental threats with tower of iron will!
  • Rules and advice to help you steep your game in the occult, from chakras and deadly mindscapes to possession, psychic duels, and the Esoteric Planes.
  • A wide variety of new magic items, such as the eerie spirit mirror and the peculiar tin cap, plus new cursed items and powerful artifacts.
  • ... and much, much more!

Plethora of new flavorful content

*****

I'd definitely have to say I'm not disappointed with this book (PDF actually, book didn't show up yet). With this book Paizo has delivered some fantastic new classes who each have an interesting flavor, and all of them have some distinct and varied archetypes. Even a few older classes received love from this book with new archetypes for the alchemists, cavaliers, and witches among others. I can say I'll definitely be having some fun with the new content which released right before a friend is starting a new evil campaign (Spiritualist seems like a fine pick for a necromancer).

I hope for a Castrovel AP one day but it will be a long time till we see an AP(or AP volume) that takes place on another planet again.
I wouldn't be surprised if the Feb 2016 AP is Distant Worlds, given how unpopular Giantslayer turns out to be.

We've only had one part, though I concede that it's important to start strong right out of the gate. That really difficult for this type of AP, what with giants being the main threat and 1st level characters being unable to fight them. Also, I think that this AP suffers from bad timing, ie. being stuck between Iron Gods and Hell's Rebels. Still, I hope for cool things to come!

I think that an Occult AP will probably be a Darklands AP at this point.


Pathfinder Companion, Lost Omens Subscriber

If they do a darklands one I would like to see them focus on things down there other just drow, darkfolk, serpentfolk, and urdefhan.


5 people marked this as a favorite.

Darklands? My money is on Casmaron/Vudra. Expanded information on the continent was delayed to be able to build on psychic magic rather than having to go back and retroact psychic rules. No need for further delay, now!

Also, I really hope for an India-flavored AP. It's removed enough from "typical" yet incredibly conducive to fantasy play. My only concern is for finding good subject matter experts, but even that is easily resolved with a quick messageboard search.


Pathfinder Companion, Lost Omens Subscriber

I would prefer a Casmaron/Vudra AP over a darklands one any day, But I would still like a distant worlds one better unless it was just Eox.

Probably best to move the future AP speculation to a new thread in the appropriate forum, rather than here.


So when do we get a peak at one of the iconic characters for this book?

Or the updated cover!?

*ducks to dodge shuriken thrown out of frustration by Liz*

I know. We'll get it when it's ready.


Pathfinder Companion, Lost Omens Subscriber

I hope we get both the updated cover and the iconics before Paizo Con.

These are only sketches of the occultist and the psychic, but I think they qualify as "peaks".

Peek

Yep those are the iconic sketches I remember seeing a while ago.

Things that I hope to see in this book.
-Psychic sorcerer bloodline.
-Occult related oracle mystery.
-More sorcerer bloodlines in general even if they are reprints.
-More oracle mysteries.
-More oracle curses.(mute!)
-Feats that grant psychic abilities that any class can get.
-Ki related feats.
-Chakra related feats.
-At least one psychic related archetype for most(if not all) classes.
-Aura related feats.

Does this book still have psychic related monsters or were they all moved to the Occult Bestiary?


Just noted the bit in the description about "psychic combat." I'm interested to see Pathfinder's take on that. Possibly a variant of the CMB/CMD rules, but for mental combat?

Guess from Left to Right: Mesmerist, Spiritualist, Medium, Psychic, Kineticist, and Occultist.

True. I'm just riding the wave left over from last time.

Yeah, that's more like deliberate hemorrhaging.

I think I need to phase out of the ethereal plane to see that clearly.

Seems to be be two small race characters cant make out much more than that


Pathfinder Lost Omens Subscriber

Alright from left to right I believe it is,

A middle-age male Human Mesmerist:I believe one of his hands is holding a mirror or a compact.

A female gnome Spiritualist:lots of ectoplasm around her plus the possible presence of her spirit.

A old human woman Medium: Gypsy-esque traditional mediums garb.

A Vudrani female human Psycic: Already known from sketch.

A Male Halfling kineticsit: Possible item levitating in left hand and held staff.

A Middle-age Human (slightly obese) Occultist: Already known from sketch.

I may have the mesmerist and the kinetisit flipped, I may also have the halflings gender wrong.

but from the blurry image that's what I guess.


Pathfinder Lost Omens Subscriber

I think someone did say an loli-goth girl as a spiritualist in the prediction threads. I hope they're happy with and emo gnome spiritualist.


Pathfinder Companion, Lost Omens Subscriber

That's weird I heard the kineticist iconic is supposed to be female.


Pathfinder Lost Omens Subscriber

Might be, the image is blurry so it's still only guessing for now.

But the Halfling could be a woman.


Dot


Pathfinder Lost Omens Subscriber

actually after a little editing in iphoto on my computer, the old woman may be the Spiritualist, the Gnome is the Kineticist, and the halfling may be the medium.

If the messageboard had a photo share function, I could show you what I did.


Pathfinder Companion, Lost Omens Subscriber

A Gnome kineticist, makes sense with the con mod. Though I wish they would start using non core races for the iconics.


Pathfinder Adventure, Rulebook Subscriber

can we get a link to pic that isn't on facebook, can't access it from work

I've rehosted it here.


Pathfinder Companion, Lost Omens Subscriber

I can't wait to see a pic of the new iconics that I can actually see;)

The Gnome being the Kineticist makes sense with the blue flame. Kinda wish they had gone with a Geokineticist for the iconic though, fire is pretty overdone*.

*this assuming we're right on who the kineticist is, of course.

I hope the image is better able to clear up the whole "blue smudge" problem. did you notice the spectral armored warrior in the back?

considering that the armored figure is behind the old woman and his sword is held in front of her, I think the old lady is the Spiritualist.

That gnome seems to be throwing down the gauntlet with Balazar in the Outrageous Hats competition. I wholeheartedly approve.

Can't wait to see all of these folks more closely! :)

If were going by the playtest and what gender they say the classes would be then...

Kineticists-female
Medium-male
Mesmerist-male
Occultist-male
Psychic-female
Spiritualist-female

I think the three woman then can be identified straight off the bat.

Female Gnome Kineticist
Female Vudrani Human Psychic
Female Old Human Spiritualist

From the men we know the Occultist is the chubby guy on the far right leaving,

Male Halfling & Male Middle-Age Human for the positions of Medium and Mesmerist.


I am getting an Elf vibe from the Psychic personally.

I hope the middle age human is the mesmerist.

Also what is this pic taken from? Will this discussion that is showing off the iconics be online?

I'm getting a very good vibe from the Vudrani lady. May become one of my favorite iconics.
