No fantasy setting is complete without a pantheon of powerful deities for its characters to worship or fear. Whether you're a sneaky rogue asking the god of thievery for a blessing on your next heist or a valorous crusader calling the might of your patron down upon the forces of evil, faith and the forces behind it are key to every character's identity. Within this volume you'll find details on the gods and non-deific faiths of the Age of Lost Omens from the perspective of their clergy and lay worshipers. You'll also discover new domains, feats, and spells to customize your character, and an exhaustive index of hundreds of deities from the Pathfinder setting you can worship (and the mechanical benefits of doing so).

An indispensable 128-page resource for both players looking to flesh out their characters' motivations and Game Masters aiming to bring the evil cults, zealous evangelists, and holy warriors of their campaigns to life, Pathfinder Lost Omens Gods & Magic is an essential addition to any Pathfinder Second Edition campaign!

So I wonder if all 1e gods(you can see them in archive of nethys, though it is missing some of them who were name dropped and never given info about domain wise :D) will be listed in table here even if they don't get heavily featured

Also wondering if we get some version of evangelist/exalted/sentinel/obedience classes or mechanics in this

First: Great cover of a dwarf defending a bridge against orcs!
Looks very war-like.

Second: Is it me or are the Lost Omens Guides getting smaller and smaller page-wise?

Third: The first 2020 Pathfinder Product! :-)

If you take the date of january 13th given by the system (which is the date that subscriber shipping should start) and add two weeks and two days, you get the intended street date of wednesday 29th of january 2020 (that is always the case how you can figure out the release date intended by Paizo).

I think this cover might be placeholder though, at least I think I heard something like that from the paizocon recording? Plus picture does look bit familiar, but that might be my imagination though


*Salivating*

I can't wait to see how the gods are going tto be handled in this new edition. Hundreds of them... *~*

I do hope that's the case. They already have names, areas of interest, favored weapons... I hope to see at least the 35 gods from the Inner Sea Gods and the Inner Sea Faiths heavily covered, at least with a page or two for each of them... Something like what was done in Book of the Damned Hardcover.

Inner Sea Gods, Torag section. That's actually the dwarf god in his new design as per the interior art in that book.

Hope there're rules for the benefits of worshipping the Eldest and the Elemental Lords.


The book following this one might get announced at GenCon. What are your hopes up for?

If not in the core line, I do hope for a book covering the other ancestries from the Advanced Race Guide or maybe even from the Inner Sea Races book...

Mr. James also said something about a book covering a region we have been asking for a long time. Maybe the Impossible Lands? Maybe Garund or Arcadia? I'm excited to know what the next year will bring us!

There were also hints of going outside the Inner Sea region sooner rather than later.

My preference would be for a detailed guide to one of the 10 Inner Sea regions. Impossible Lands would be amazing, but my guess is that it will support whatever AP comes after Extinction Curse... which would make an Impossible Lands book even more exciting!

It would be awesome to have one of these 10 regions covered at least one per year, but I can't deny I'm indeed hoping for a region outside of the Inner Sea, one of the other continents.

I'd be interested in knowing what's going on in the southern half of Garund.


From the previews showed in GenCon, this book looks beautiful. Such a wonderful cover, and the opening pages showing the gods battling the Rough Beast is amazing.

I just hope there aren't to many pages focusing in the core 20, as we already got Inner Sea Gods covering much of their lore. I would be pleased with a spread per god, but from Iomedae preview I think there're going to be more them that.

I would love to get at least the 15 gods in Inner Sea Faiths covered with two pages and a new illustration.

The cover above is a placeholder, they showed the real cover at Gen Con, it is divided artistically into four panels, one at the top, showing the chamber of the Starstone, and three panels below that, showing the ascended deities Cayden Cailean, Iomedae, and Norgorber.

Oh, and the book following this one seems to be a book covering the city we all asked for, the city at the center of the world, Absalom! I can't wait to read it! 200+ pages?! THAT A LOT!

I'm sad it's not about the whole Starstone Island, but the next AP will get us moving through the island, so I'm sure we are getting more on it.

Surely, I was hoping for something beyond the Inner Sea, but I would be lying if I said I'm not happy with the announcement.

Think we’ll see any Archetypes in this? Feels like they’d be mentioned if so, but a girl can hope.

Basically want this just to see how Casandalee is doing.

Seeing the words "zealous evangelists" in the product description makes me wonder.

Pshaw. Once again, the fourth ascended deity, Razmir, gets disrespected.

First they destroy his bridge. Then they refute his divinity. Now this petty nonsense. They'll rue the day!

Razmir does. He says it makes him sound more sophisticated and godly.

Um, wouldn't Razmir be the FIFTH ascended deity after Aroden, Norgorber, Cayden and Iomedae? I also think that the day of his ascension should be celebrated as Ruesday.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Companion, Maps, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Maps, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I don't think Aroden ascended via the Starstone. There would be more ascended deities if you count those who ascended without it.

Actually, it has been stated somewhere by Paizo staff that when he touched the Starstone, he was drawn inside it and underwent tests of his character, power, skill, etc. When he came out, he ascended to godhood as a living demi-god.

So yeah, he was the first to pass the test.

I'm sure it says that other places as well, but the most recent is probably the very first paragraph of the Absolom chapter of the Lost Omens World Guide.

Irori and Nethys, both ascended to godhood through their own efforts. Or at least they claim to.

To me, Irori is surely the most fascinating of all the ascended gods among the core deities.

Urgathoa, too. But she got skipped in that Big Book O' Self-Made Immortals in Divine Anthology, so I suspect that it's a thing to diss ol' boney.

I kinda love how the setting has so many different sorts of gods, many of whom 'got there' by different routes.

Self-made; Irori, Nethys, Urgathoa
Starstone scions; Cayden, Iomedae, Norgorber
Top tier angel, demon, devil; Asmodeus, Lamashtu, Sarenrae
Born that way with one or more godly parents; Shelyn, Zon-Kuthon
Always were?; Pharasma, Rovagug
Racial; Calistria, Torag
Kind of just appeared one day; Gorum
Totally not a great old one, really (wink, wink); Desna
Unknown; Abadar, Erastil, Gozreh

^ I'm pretty sure that Rovagug has been confirmed as a top tier Qlippoth.

& Pharasma is pretty much the

Spoiler:
last survivor of a previous reality & first sentient being of the current reality (unless the Seal counts as sentient, in which case she would be tied for first with it...).

Your point (in that the two of them "Always were?") effectively still stands though!

I like Desna being one of if not *the* only goodly Great Old One though.

I really hope obscure and minor divine powers are not forgotten in this new setting. For example I really love the idea that the Osirion gods are making a mysterious comeback, that the Eldest are pulling strings that manipulate even the Core Deities (save Pharasma of course), and,

...that every deity likely feels discomfort at the thought of the Outer Gods, and their Great Old One prophets!?!?

I'm mostly curious if deities like psychopomp usher Shadix Who Dreams who have only been name dropped by various books but never given domains get remembered

There are quite lot of super obscure deities

I really hope Uskyerial, the Saintly Slumberer, Empyreal Lord of Hunting, Prudence, and Slumber is covered. In my personal cannon I have a village of Grippli that worship this great bear, and wear appropriate costumes in reverence to him.


*Uskyeria, *canon


^ Isn't Uskyeria a 'she'?

Granted, you may have decided Uskyeria is a 'he' in your canon (nothing wrong with that!), but...

<shrug>

The grippli worshippers idea is cool! :D

Carry on,

Desna is, by all the evidence, an ancient, alien, insectoid being from beyond the stars who visits people in their dreams.

She's never been technically stated as a Great Old One, and indeed she's among their greatest foes, but Alignments aside she has more in common with them than she does with most other Gods.

The 'friendly Great Old One' interpretation of her is really easy to buy into, and makes a whole lot of sense, even if it isn't 100% canonical.

Oops, you're right. I don't know how I missed that. Thanks.

Anyway, she's a great excuse to use Ewok minis for Grippli, since Paizo has not given us the latter.

Desna is indeed an alien entity who's kind of "adopted" the humanoid form in response to her delight in how we humans look and act. She's not from "outer space" even though she enjoys outer space—she pre-dates sapient thought/mortal life in the Material Plane, along with some of the other really REALLY ancient deities.

She's not a Great Old One, though. She's a full-fledged deity who doesn't get a stat block. Nor is she an Outer God, because she actively cares for and likes and wants to help us people.

If Desna were in Lovecraft's stories, she'd be classified along with Nodens as an Elder God, I suppose.

(We don't have an "Elder God" category in Pathifnder because it's nonsensical—"Elder God" basically means "deities who aren't Great Old Ones or Outer Gods," after all, so pretty much every other deity in the setting is an "Elder God" if you look at it from the Derleth Mythos world view—the creation of that category of deity being something August Derleth introduced to the stories in his sometimes awkward attempt to categorize Lovecraft's creations into narrowly defined categories like elementals and the like.)

Nah, that was Nivi Rhombodazzle on cover of Faiths of Golarion.

That picture COULD be Chaldira since she has red hair as well and its kinda hard to tell from Faiths of Golarion art, but both do appears to have gap between teeth. And both have green/red patched up coat.

Sooo yeah, its probably IS Chaldira, though face looks different since its another artist's take on same character :p
