New domains


Rise of the Runelords


Looking through page 7 of the pathfinders players guide, I noticed that some of the deities of golarion have domains that arent listed in the PHB, such as artifice, charm, liberation nobility, rune etc. Where would one find information on those domains' granted powers and spells?

There's also the Mind domain in the SRD, though Paizo hasn't used it yet.

They're saving it for the deity worshipped by the secret underground society of psionic drow ninja assassins.

And they are all chaotic good rebels from an evil drow society, and they all wield double scimitars. And most of them have a dwarf friend with a scottish accent...

And though they're open content, the domains do appear in several non-open WotC books like the Spell Compendium.

Woot! I've been looking for these for a while, with no luck - and they were on the SRD all the time??! Thanks for the link!

Impossible. Ninjas and Pirates are the two defining forces of action, the Yin and the Yang of excitement, if you will. The two cannot be mixed in any single being, or it would be ripped apart. Not even Chuck Norris could handle it. (Well, has he ever played a pirate? Has he? Didn't think so.)

COnsidering that, and the title of this thread, we desperately need Ninja and Pirate domains.

3rd - nondetection
4th - air walk
5th - shadow walk
6th - mislead
7th - simulacrum
8th - screen
9th - foresight

Pirate Domain
Granted Power: While within sight of a body of water no smaller than 1 square mile in area, the cleric gains a +1 sacred (or profane, if evil) bonus on attack and weapon damage rolls.

Wow, 1 hour, 8 minutes to create two new domains.


Just wondering, where are the Seven Sin domains. (as well as the seven saintly domains)

I asked the same question and was told to wait for pathfinder 5

Dragon magazine detailed the seven domains of sin in issue #323, I believe; these domains got picked up and are included in the Spell Compendium. They recently did the seven virtue domains as well, but I'm not sure off the top of my head which issue they were in (they were too recent to be included in the Spell Compendium, though).

We probably WON'T do sin domains in Pathfinder 5 after all; a Greed Domain may well show up in Pathfinder 6. For the most part, sin magic is arcane as far as the magic of Thassilon goes; I'm not sure I want to cross it over so blatantly into divine magic as well, especially since in Thassilon, divine magic was generally something that got supressed or looked down upon.

I know. Fatespinner must have been off his game :)

Can you even use the domains from the Spell Compendium? I don't see any of them in the SRD. If not, I take it you will invent your own?

We certainly can invent our own. I may have been misremembering the presence of domains like the additional SRD domains (such as Repose and Charm and Madnesss) being reprinted in the Spell Compendium, but they were certainly printed in other WotC books like Lords of Madness, Complete Divine, and the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting.

But yeah, the majority of the domains in the Spell Compendium are not in the SRD.

I think this is my favorite post. Out of all posts. Everywhere.

Yeah, I actually didn't notice the post until about 45 minutes after it went up. Work was interfering again. :(

I believe that most, if not all, of the domains from the SRD were reprinted in the Spell Compendium. The sin domains (Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth , Wrath, Envy, Pride) are all reprinted, as are domains in most of the "Complete", Races and Environmental books.
