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 hardcover rulebook also includes a full adventure themed around fighting the undead!

Great resource, just wish the player options were a bit stronger

5/5

title says it all, it's a good book but it feels like they were afraid of really committing to the undead vibe for the player options, which is a bummer but far from a deal breaker


5/5


Good undead archetypes, lore lacking

3/5

The highlight of this book is the archetypes and ancestry for allowing undead PCs. The handling of rejuvenation and soul cage in particular works well, and would work as good inspiration for representing other powerful monsters as PC archetypes. If that's your next campaign, this book could be worth it for the archetypes alone.

For a DM running an undead-heavy campaign, this book works well as an additional bestiary. There are 85 monster entries, as well as alternate ability options for some of the more common undead and some new haunts. None particularly stood out to me, but the sheer number is certainly helpful and in Pathfinder 2E every monster entry has something interesting going for it. The adventure is fine, but Paizo produces so many better adventures in other product lines. (I haven't run this one, so can't judge the difficulty.)

For living PCs, this book isn't worth it. The archetypes are lackluster. There's 2 pages of backgrounds and 3 pages of items, but surprisingly no new spells at all. I didn't dock the book for this. Some books simply aren't for good-aligned PCs.

Most disappointing is the lore section. The cursive font used for some of the in-world lore sections is more legible than previous books, but still difficult to read. I can't imagine trying to decipher it in the pocket edition. Luckily, these in-universe esoteric pieces aren't that interesting to me anyway. Worse is the choice to write almost all of the lore from Geb's highly-opinionated perspective. A light touch might have been entertaining, but in a few places, notably the Deities of Undeath and the shorter entries in the Lands of Undead section, the opinions are so strong that I can't actually tell what he's talking about. I love well-considered lore that inspires characters and plot hooks (Mwangi Expanse was fantastic and Guns & Gears did this well for a book in the rulebook product line), but here it feels like a lazy way to add page count.


Not for Players

2/5

Contains cool lore RE: Undead and cool undead creature profiles for GMs

Most of the undead options for players are very weak, sacrifice important flavor for balance, or worse (and more commonly) both. Most of the playable options don't actually feel like undead

If you want this book because you are interested in playing an undead character, save yourself some time and money and just homebrew something better.


A lore-packed book full of undead-centered options

Man I really hope there are necrografts in this book. Was looking over starfinder stuff recently and was reminded how cool bone blade was - a pathfinder 2e version of that would be so very cool. Especially if it was expanded a little, something to the effect of installing a bone version of a light, one handed weapon in ones arm that cannot be removed and grows back in 24 hours if destroyed.

Well, we were told that prosthetic limbs would be in Guns & Gears. So, expecting something similar in Book of the Dead isn't too hard to envision for this book, especially considering the precedent established in Starfinder books, as you mentioned. At least, I agree with you and hope that necrografts will be a thing in this book.

Yeah I really think there's a good chance, but time will tell. I was surprised to learn recently that necrografts were actually also in 1st edition pathfinder as well, I had assumed they were a new starfinder thing. So that might make it even more of a possibility.

I very much so second this. One of my favorite additions to 3.5 was the various types of grafts the system saw. In fact, one of my early PF1 characters backgrounds was that he was a soldier who defeated a dragon single-handedly, but sustained heavy damage to his heart and one of his eyes, and had the Dragons heart and one of its eyes grafted onto him in order to survive.

I actually think the idea of grafts is a fairly likely one. There have been a number of pieces of art in PF2 products that have featured at least one character with what appears to be a grafted arm of magical wood.

I think skeleton and ghoul have been indicated. Lich is likely too strong for an ancestry, but this at least provides the opportunity to look like one, or play a lich who's had something happen to their phylactery.

Skelton's were all but confirmed accidently(?) By Jason as an Ancestry. I recall someone basically saying it's an Ancestry instead of a Heritage because Skeletons dont have any actual physiology from their prior Ancestry to matter. Which... I'm not sure is wholly accurate. I feel like a creature with non-standard (i.e. Human-like) body may have some complaints. Lol

However, I'm stoked for the idea. I'm so ready to explain how my Skeleton's Beastkin Heritage manages to subsist despite its lack of flesh. Those transformations are gonna be wild.
I'm actually pretty confident that Skeletons, and maybe any other Undead Ancestry we may get, probably isn't going to to be able to take any of the existent Heritages. Just a hunch. Considering how monster building works, I have a feeling any abilities related to your once living form may be voided. Which likely includes those from a Heritage. If any are actually allowed, I'd wager they'll be Undead specific Heritages only, if that. A Skeletal Ghoul seems interesting(?) to say the least. Lol

On the matter of Heritages, I believe Ghouls were soft confirmed with the initial announcement of the book, with a possible suggestion of them being a Heritage? Could be wrong.

I suspect we'll be able to use the Versatile Heritages, just based off how they're not restricted for other odd ancestries, and how cool some of things you could make are.

Like you could take ifrit stuff for a flaming skeleton! or you could take Aasimar for a weirdly holy skeleton, there's a lot of really 'weird' conceptual space there if they leave it open and let the player/GM deal with the flavor ramifications at their own tables.

Given the customizable variant abilities present on Skeletons (and Zombies) within the Bestiary, I expect those kinds options to be either come from Ancestry Feats or Heritage/Lineage options. In the case of the of the Skeleton, which will be an Ancestry, I suspect their Heritages will cover this. I'd guess that the fluff behind their Heritages will primarily explain things "how you died, where you died, and how were you raised into undeath?" So, maybe a person who was killed in by a fire source or in a firey environment could rise as a Blazing Skeleton, while another is raised by an overwhelming abundance of necromantic energy, either through a spell or environment steep in it, and would be capable of releasing said energy in bursts. Alongside this, I expect some of the Ancestral Feats to follow the same flow of existent one's do and will allow you to take some of the Heritage abilities as Feats for more customization.

I just can't imagine that the rules would change much in regards to playable Undead vs enemy Undead; and really don't think that any abilities that stemmed from your time with the living will be relevant to the character building aspects of it. The reason we are seeing their inclusion now is because they changed the overall rules for undead, particularly in regards to their Constitution scores, which is enabling them to make them PC options. That was kind of why we didn't see them in PF1e outside of a character contracting it's source and the GM allowing them to take the template. So, I think most of the Undead based PC options, outside of maybe the Mortic (who I expect to see included as a Heritage maybe), may feature a clause that doesn't allow most/all of the current Versatile Heritage options. Kind of how the Beastkin states it can only be take by those with the Humanoid trait, preventing Conrasu, Leshy, and Sprites from taking it.

Random thoughts: I kind of hope this includes some expanded options for Ancestries/Heritages with unique relationships with undead creatures.

Key among these would be Dhampir. Including some more Feats, in particular Lineages, would be nice. In fact, if Vampires have their own section, a deeper dive into their lore would be welcomed.

Another idea are options for Android and Fleshwarp. It has been stated that Androids are capable of becoming undead, thanks to the organic nature of their bodies. Something to tie into that a bit would be interesting. And a Fleshwarp Heritage that maybe implies they were warpped by necromantic experiments seems neat too.

Could maybe expand Duskwalkers too, in so far as their progenitors disdane for undead. Orcs too, what with the Hold being near the Deadlands.

And again, Mortics. Mortics as Versatile Heritage that basically turns every Ancestry into their unique version of the Mortic (or generic version for those without specific forms) would be welcome.

The problem with that is that Tar-Baphon wasn't defeated. He is still very much active and is being developed as one of THE overarching threats to the Inner Sea. In 1e, I'd say that fell to the gapping fissure of demons known as the Worldwound.

I'm all for having multiple big bad guys. But, the Whispering Tyrant is definitely the most prevalent issue at the moment. As it stands, the Fifth Horseman is hardly a problem. The other Four would be the bigger thorn given current events in Abaddon.


Tar-Baphon spent the bulk of 1e locked in a box before showing up in two climactic events to /not/ be slain in either. He’s hardly 1e’s main antagonist.

As for godhood… do you think Urgathoa wants that competition?

Pretty sure it's been suggested that Tar-Baphon has the support of Urgathoa, to the extent that she may have hidden his phylactery personally.

The fact that the Fifth Horseman is said to be bound by the other Four Horseman in Abaddon. For the Fifth to be relevant, the current Four Horseman would have to be dealt with first.


I can see no way in which that might go poorly.

Depends on who you are I suppose. For the Fifth, it would probably be fantastic.

I'd be down to see the Four Horseman ride into Golarion in an AP. We've had a major conflict with Demons via the Worldwound and the Devil’s of Cheliax are an ever present thorn in the side of the wider Inner Sea region. A major event involving Daemons would be interesting to say the least.

----

But that isn't here nor there atm. Imo, the next major conflict is defiently with Tar-Baphon and the Whispering Way. Perhaps, we will see a surge of insurgent Undead who aren't beholden to the Whispering Tyrant and see his reign as a threat to their... erm... "livelihood". Could be an good place for an acceptance of civilized undead within the world. Places like Geb are likely tolerated at best.

But, WotR has the characters go Mythic I book 2.

But, agreed. I wouldn't say it would be required to face a mortal Tar-Baphon. I see no reason a group of 20th level characters couldn't manage it (albeit, likely with some difficulty). But, I'd prefer if Mythic was the direction they went with it, especially if he manages to gain divinity. When and I that happens is up in the air.

Regardless, the Whispering Tyrant, at this point, is definitely a more present and more likely an enemy to face than, say, the Fifth Horseman right now. Again, to get to the Fifth, that requires something be done about the other Four. I don't think Paizo is very likely to set them up to be be anything less than major players in an event; would be a shame not to. So, I don't think the Fifth is escaping his prison outside of an AP where, maybe, the PC's inadvertently release him themselves.

Silver Crusade

Ly'ualdre wrote:

My point was that Mythic didn’t add anything to the story, they could have done Wrath without Mythic.

And look where else Mythic was used after… pretty much never, save an occasional enemy in a bestiary or AP. The PCs certainly didn’t get to use it, and PC options for Mythic weren’t published after to my knowledge.

I wonder if Tar Baphon might not be treated as a hazard like the Kaiju are in PF2e. Find and destroy the phylactery to neutralise the hazard so to speak.

I dunno Rysky...me and my friends came pretty darn close to defeat several times in WotR and were saved on several occasions by our mythic abilities. The final battle with Deskari is just BRUTAL to say the least! Also I'd venture to guess the Whispering Tyrant has been quite busy since gaining his freedom gaining even more power than he had before.

I mean, sure. But I think 2e's Action Economy could do wonders for Mythic rules. The new Proficiency tiers could work well with it too. Have a 5th tier over Legendary, call it Mythic, tie some neat Feats that require it and let you do some really cool things. Mages could gain access to more 10th level spells or be able to cast rituals alone. Just a few small ideas b

I don't think the idea isn't without merit. Wrath was made Mythic for the sake of showcasing the rules, even if they maybe weren't all that spectacular. Same way I'm sure we will probably get an Undead AP with Book of the Dead.

5th tier over Legendary would be in the vein of Epic (more powerful by getting past level 20) rather than Mythic (more powerful in parallel to gaining levels).

I want Tar-Baphon to raise Aroden's body as a divine undead and then inhabit it as the prelude to his apotheosis as an undead deity. And then, it's PCs' party time.

Honestly, I want a god of good or reformed undead before we get another evil undead god. Tar-Baphon has already proven that he's perfectly dangerous as "standard" undead. I don't think they need to elevate him to godhood in order to make him seem like a threat.

A good undead deity would be interesting. But, I don't think Tar-Baphon will put his goals to achieve godhood on hold till then.
