Fight Smart, Not Hard!

Now on its fifth edition, the world’s oldest roleplaying game presents a number of exciting options to allow players to customize their characters. It seems like just about every class in the game gives players a major choice that can heavily alter the way their character operates, such as a barbarian’s primal path, a paladin’s oath, or a warlock’s pact. While the core rules give every class a handful of these options to choose from, and additional supplements from Wizards of the Coast have provided a few more here and there, there’s no doubt that there’s plenty of room for more of these options to provide you with exciting new approaches to each class, which can give you a some new tricks, allow you to represent flavorful ideas and concepts that had no support previously, or completely turn the class’s basic role on its head. The Advanced Options series is here to give you those new options.

This installment focuses on providing new options for rogue characters, in the form of five new rogue archetypes. Use incredible acrobatics to hit your opponents high and low, dodging and backflipping all the while with the acrobat archetype. Take down your foes the easy way with the poisoner archetype, making the application of poison easier and more effective. Become all but undetectable with the shadow archetype, or use dirty fighting and a knack for intimidation to keep your foes down with the thug archetype. Finally, the tinker archetype allows you to repair and build nearly anything from materials on hand, and even create impossible new inventions.

Necromancers of the Northwest in 2019

January 9th, 2018

It's an exciting time to be in the third-party publishing business for tabletop roleplaying games. The 5th edition of Dungeons and Dragons is still new enough to have plenty of potential for exciting new products, with a growing fanbase. Paizo's Starfinder Roleplaying Game is still fresh and exciting, and offers a whole different set of options to explore. Meanwhile, a playtest is already out for the second edition of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, with a full release expected later this year. Although the first edition of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is far from gone, and will always have a special place in our hearts here at Necromancers of the Northwest, we are also excited by these new opportunities, and in particular we want to be ready to hit the ground running when second edition is released. As a result, we've decided to temporarily postpone our regular article schedule for the time being, to focus on advanced design work for some larger products that you can expect close to that release date.

In the meantime, weekly books will continue every Friday, and we have several projects that, for one reason or another, have been delayed for extended periods of time, which we look forward to bringing you in the coming months, including one of our most creative books yet, which will provide a series of new and wildly different base classes for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game (first edition). Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

We also have another installment of Advanced Arcana coming your way, although this version is full of spells for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game. Taking advantage of the game's cosmopolitan and alien-heavy setting, we've put together an Advanced Arcana that focuses on the sorts of unique spells that these alien cultures develop, with selections of unique and exciting spells from 10 different races, all with the creative and groundbreaking mechanics that the Advanced Arcana series is known for.
