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!

How nice that the cover was updated!

Is this book still supposed to have a table giving basic info for nearly all of the known deities?

Is that the Starstone I see, surrounded by the remains of wannabe gods?

Not nearly all, but there's a bunch of them. Somewhere around 150.

FIngers crossed for

- Naderi
-Zyphus
- Kurgess
- The Eldest

and a new favorite of mine since I got the 1e book for fluff purposes: Mrtyu.

As someone who loves basically every god in Pathfinder, I'm sure I'll miss the absence of some, but like anyone I hope to get a lot of my old favorites. This is my most anticipated book of the edition.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Hoping the Psychopomp Ushers will be in here. Have a cleric of Barzahk I'd love to bring over to the new edition.

Maybe it's a Tardis, and bigger on the inside? :)

We have nearly 55 main fiend deities (demon lords, horsemen, archdevils and queens of the night) as well as 55 empyreal lords.

It seems there won't be room for as many gods as there was in the Inner Sea Gods' tables. Going back to that book, there are more than 150 deities listed on the appendix, far more if we include the harbinger, infernal dukes and the nascent demon lords - excluding them there are nearly 155.

I suppose we won't be seeing rules for demigods like demagogues, tormentors, ranas and immortals, as well as outer gods and great old ones, and the likes. They are minor entities to the main setting, I would say, so that's plausible.

How many there are total listed in archive of nethys?(-1 for minus Folca since he isn't coming back as far as we all know :p)

My personal hope is for Nurgal, Yamatsumi, Hei Feng, and Arshea. Definitely Nurgal and Arshea.

Same. I really liked Mrtyu and the other Psychopomp ushers from the book plus I liked that Protean weirdo whose domain includes slang. I wanted to make a cleric who says things like "Yeet your javelin at that polecat daddy-o!"

If we're getting a fair handful of empyreal lords, I feel like Arshea is a given. They're a fan favorite and I think got at least a direct mention in Stafinder's CRB.

Hopefully that's not wishful thinking!

I gotta say, that art makes Abadar look a LOT less generic, which can ONLY be an improvement! He's always kind of suffered being "the boring god" from my observation.

To be honest, most of the Golarion gods, in my opinion, are kind of meh. Only a few, in my opinion, have any interesting aspects to them.

Eh its about tastes. I actually feel that way about D&D gods.

Seriously. The Forgotten Realms equivalent of Shelyn is...not great. Not sure why she's even considered good aligned.

In older editions (3rd and before) Sune was definitely good aligned. I have no idea what they did to her recently though.

Liberty's Edge

Oh yeah, she's still CG. Granted, it's been a minute since the last time I looked and can't exactly read my sources right now, but the characterization offered was just really petty and kind of mean.

Desna as a Great Old One? Haha I like her.. but I'd like her even more then.

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.

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.

Is Desna older than the current multiverse?

I'm, huh... Asking for a friend.

Curious. I'd assumed Mythos-adjacent creatures were the ones Outside.

Outer Gods and Great Old Ones exist apart from the cycle, yes, but Desna is neither. She's ancient and wasn't human shaped at the start, but she's not an Outer God or a Great Old One. That's mostly a (very amusing but inaccurate) theory is all.

In any event, the Windsong Testament entry I wrote a few weeks back locks in her as being one of the first 8 deities in this iteration, so that by definition means she's not older than that.


Got that. Last question about the subject: Are Great Old Ones and Outer Gods the only creatures to exist apart from the cycle? Your words earlier indicate that all Outer Gods are somewhat inimical to human(oid) life (or noxious, to use a term that doesn't imply conscious malice), and I want to know if they are the only ones who keep going from one multiverse to the next.

Manasaputras theoretically also do, but I think there was never any confirmation of their pre-multiversal incarnations in-setting, only in the "general" rules.

They are at least not the only creatures from outside the multiverse, I think?

There are others, like the manasupturas, yes. Not many though.

Curiosity has gotten the better of me. Since the cover focuses on the Starstone deities, will this address the mystery of the 12 seals on the entrance of the Starstone Cathedral (of which only 3 are fulfilled)?

Now that raises an interesting question or two. Was Starstone Cathedral moved to Absalom Station, or just the Starstone itself? If the latter, what happened to the twelve seals? If the former, how many of the seals have been fulfilled by the time of Starfinder?


3 people marked this as a favorite.

I think the explanation is obvious enough. 12 mortals were fated to ascend using the Starstone (sans Aroden), but the death of prophecy *might* have messed that up.

Or it might not have. My questions stand.

It's nevertheless obvious enough for most, and some of your questions are answered in the write ups of Absalom Station.


I am enjoying reading this thread.

Out of curiosity, is this book only going to have Divine spells and feats, or will it include spells and feats from all the traditions of magic? Even if it's only Divine stuff in this book, that would still be cool, since the Divine list needs the most help by far.

I watched the Know Direction interview with James, and it looks like this book is pretty much about Gods, with a minimal input on the magic side. I could be wrong, and it could have just been the dino geeking out over pantheonic systems (which I understand), but I wouldn't expect there to be any needle-moving magic. Maybe a few rituals.

There are spells for all four traditions of magic in this book. They are in the form of new spells for general use and new focus spells from the new domains featured in this book.


I like new spells! Will there be deity specific spells now?
