It's summer break here at Necromancers of the Northwest, and some of us are still recovering from Paizocon. We'll be back August 4th with exciting new content.
For those of you who joined us at Paizocon 2014 to sample our upcoming Choose Your Own Character Creation Adventure method, if you're looking for ways to get more of the character creation sheets, they're now available as free downloads on our downloads page. If you didn't get a chance to try the method out, fear not: it will be released in a future product, containing multiple other exciting character creation methods, later this year.
We conclude Shield Week with the all-but-impenetrable shield beetle, a titanic vermin with incredible defensive potential. If its spell-reflecting armored hide isn’t scary enough when it’s turning aside your weapons and spells, it will certainly be terrifying when it’s rolling towards you in a 200-ton ball of steely death.
While you might be familiar with spells like shield and shield other, you’ve never seen spells quite like these, which serve to show off the true spirit of the shield we sought to capture in the The Ebon Vault: Impenetrable Shields, available now!
Everyone knows that fighters love shields and have a lot of feats. This week’s Extraordinary Feats is for fighters who really love their shields and want to choose feats which do more than improve their numbers.
We kick off our weeklong love-letter to the shield with a cavalier archetype devoted to defense in general and shields in specific, the aptly named shieldknight. These shield masters not only gain more from using a shield, but can also use their shields to block more proactively.
