Weekly Wonders—Archetypes of the Ancients, Volume IV: Ys (PFRPG) PDF
Necromancers of the Northwest
The Original City of Sin!
Plumbing ancient ruins in search of long-forgotten secrets and the power of lost civilizations is nothing new to adventurers. Few fantasy settings are without some lost civilization from ages before, which boasted magic or technology far more advanced than anything seen today. But if you’re going to go after mythical cities from bygone eras, you may as well go after the best of the best. Each installment of Weekly Wonders: Archetypes of the Ancients takes a single real-world mythological city, lost continent, or hidden kingdom and provides six archetypes specifically designed to invoke the themes and elements that that place is known for.
This book focuses on the city of Ys. The legend of Ys is a tragic tale, describing how a shining and beautiful city fell to sin and debauchery, until finally the devil, in the guise of a red knight, visited the city and tricked its princess into opening the floodgates during a massive storm, causing the entire city to become buried beneath the waves. This book includes the following archetypes:
Whether you're about to embark on an archaeological campaign (such as the official Paizo adventure path dealing with seeking out the secrets of a lost and ancient civilization), or you just want to play a character with a connection to the ancient past, this book has lots of tantalizing options to offer. Even GMs can get in on the fun, as several of the archetypes here are perfect for NPCs tied to mythical places as well, and can make for exciting and memorable encounters.
