So I really love Corruptions, they are interesting thing to give pcs when they do odd things like "I drink that goblet filled with blood in this creepy dungeon with kytons", they have flavor, they have pros and cons and they are really cool :D I really like mechanics that add on PCs instead of replacing feats or class features.

What I'm wondering is that how long it takes until they make come back in 2e and what form? And if they come back in hardcover, please include all of the so far released ones in same book!(So Horror Adventures ones plus Aboleth, Demonic, Plagued, Amoral and Psychometabolic corruptions!)


This seems like something you can wing on day 1. If a character drinks a bloody goblet give them sickened 1 or whatever. Probably wont be too hard to port over from PF1 either. Sounds like a good project for the forum folk.

Being just sickened from drinking cursed blood on bleeding altar(forgot to describe altar part huh) sounds rather anticlimactic especially in comparison for PC gaining vampire corruption :p

I know it isn't the "extra that doesn't replace anything" that you mention, but gaining a corruption could unlock a new set of ancestry feats, as your fundamental nature has shifted.

That could be cool new way to handle them, though wouldn't that approach mean that corruptions are permanent? Though I suppose you could get free retrain or separate feat if you are redeemed from corruption. Also curious if that approach of corruptions would still keep the "Corruptions have powerful abilities with a horrifying cost" thing?
