Today’s Best in Class is a new base class, inspired by the vigilante, which brings the world of dual identities into the realm of vampires set forth in Liber Vampyr: Secrets of the Blood. The night stalker is a mortal by day, but a vampire by night, allowing her to gain access to a wide variety of vampiric powers, while occasionally circumventing some of the vampire’s traditional weaknesses.

Necromancers of the Northwest is proud to announce the release of our latest book, Weekly Wonders: Eldritch Archetypes Volume VI - Archetypes of Yog-Sothoth. Currently available at www.paizo.com, www.drivethrurpg.com, and www.d20pfsrd.com, here's what the back of the book has to say:
Dare You Venture Beyond the Gate?
The eldritch, the strange, and the weird are often relegated to the domains of villains and NPCs in fantasy, with the good guys being the ones who stand in the way of the dark things that remain just beyond our perception, which we can never truly understand. But sometimes, it can be fun to take on the mantle of the otherworldly, and to embrace the alien terrors of the cosmos. Each installment of Weekly Wonders: Eldritch Archetypes contains five archetypes for eldritch characters—those that are weird, alien, and otherworldly, who don’t fit in with normal society—as well as a cleric domain devoted to a specific mythos entity or race.
For this book, we focus on Yog-Sothoth. One of the most frequently used of H.P. Lovecraft’s creations, Yog-Sothoth first appeared in The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. A being of unimaginable power, Yog-Sothoth is said to be coterminous with all of time and space, and yet somehow outside it. The archetypes presented in this book, whether they reference Yog-Sothoth directly or not, adhere to themes of teleportation and space-time manipulation, as well as the creation of gates and portals. This book contains the following archetypes:
Whether you're about to embark on a campaign of eldritch horror (such as the official Paizo adventure path dealing with strange and alien entities), or you just want an excuse to play a servant of the unknowable and uncaring cosmic entities of the Cthulhu mythos, this book has lots of tantalizing options to offer. Even GMs can get in on the fun, as several of the archetypes here are perfect for insane cultist NPCs as well, and can make for exciting and memorable encounters.
And be sure to keep an eye out for next Friday's release, the final installment in the Eldritch Archetypes series, focused on archetypes inspired by Nyarlathotep.
