The dead are rising! This blasphemous tome gives players and GMs everything they need to bring the shambling menace of the undead to their Pathfinder adventures. This book includes tools for fighting against the undead horde, but also options for the players themselves to control or even become undead creatures. GMs will find new tools and haunts, as well as information about the undead-plagued lands of the Lost Omens campaign setting. A massive bestiary section full of undead creatures brings more threats for GMs to use and summonable creatures for players, including more versions of classic undead like vampires, skeletons, and zombies. This 224-page softcover rulebook also includes a full adventure themed around fighting the undead!

The pocket edition presents the same contents in a smaller sized softcover for a lower price and better portability.

Written by: Jason Bulmahn, Brian Bauman, Tineke Bolleman, Logan Bonner, Jessica Catalan, John Compton, Chris Eng, Logan Harper, Michelle Jones, Jason Keeley, Luis Loza, Ron Lundeen, Liane Merciel, Patchen Mortimer, Quinn Murphy, Jessica Redekop, Mikhail Rekun, Solomon St. John, Michael Sayre, Sen.H.S.S, Kendra Leigh Speedling, Jason Tondro, Andrew White

No, because you only get a free PDF as part of a subscription, and there is currently no pocket edition subscription.

No. You would need to become a subscriber to the rulebook line to receive a complimentary PDF of this book.

The CotCT free PDF on preorder needed you to be an AP subscriber, which you are. The free PDF on non-sub books is usually given when you are a subscriber to the line of that book.


This book looks interesting but do I need it?

Are you planning on having undead monsters in your campaign, or plan on having your players play undead options? Then yes. If not, then probably no.

That's gonna be a common question to ask regarding future rulebooks from now on. Everything from Secrets of Magic onward aren't considered "core books," so whether their aimed-at niche is worth it is something you'd need to ask yourself with each new release.

Thank you. I am thinking of getting the spell book because of the spells but the other books I am not sure of what I need as I am new and have only been playing for six months now.


I hope we get more Ancestry feats for Dhampirs in this Manual.


Hopefully there will be Companion equipment to help Companions fight the dead, maybe with ghost touch! please. Also, can a girl get some playable spider companions?

Is it me or do the pocket editions keep getting pushed back to a month after a hardcover release?

This happened with a couple of my orders, most recently Guns and Gears Pocket Edition.

It's not you. You have heard of the ongoing world-wide supply chain problems, right?

But there was a much longer delay for the original products, when the pocket editions were not yet planned. At least now we can order these books with the knowledge that the hardback and pocket editions are both coming out soon.
