The Faerie Ring: Along the Twisting Path #2--Red Jack

What do you get when you cross a fox with Jack the Ripper?

The tale of this epic-level threat is given in detail along with that of his sentient extradimensional demesne Strangle Grove, his dead wife who’s now a deadly artifact, his runaway fox-blooded daughter, and more.

This chapter of The Faerie Ring also brings you new fey, including the kitsune. These supernatural foxes are updated and expanded for use as a PC race for Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. A new system of fox magic, using feats, is fleshed out to give characters fun new magic options.

Mysteries of the Tengu Road: Yamabushi, the Sublime Transmuter

Mysteries of the Tengu Road: Yamabushi, the Sublime Transmuter

Love transmutation magic? Interested in playing a character dedicated to only one school of magic?

We just released a brand new Pathfinder Roleplaying Game base class—the yamabushi, or the sublime transmuter.

Even more specialized than a specialist wizard,the yamabushi can only ever cast transmutation spells. But they can cast any transmutation spell,whether arcane or divine. Choose from five paths to follow:razor wind,starry eye,primal dream,trying steel,or maker’s hand. Each path presents a different approach to transmutation magic.

Yamabushi seek nothing short of perfection—in both body and soul. They seek to transmute themselves into an ideal,to realize their truest potential,to unlock the secrets buried within,to understand themselves. They learn to control their bodies through intense training that incorporates spiritual discipline and mystic knowledge. They learn to channel transmutation magic—both arcane and divine—through their mastery of themselves. The precise nature of their devotion can differ,hence the different paths,but their quest for change is paramount.

More than just the class,a new PC race is presented that is deeply tied to the yamabushi. The daitengu are the fey cousins of the kotengu (or tengu) you all know and love. Play a daitengu yamabushi today!

In this book,you’ll find…

  • Yamabushi base class,focused on transmutation magic
  • 5 paths to choose from for your yamabushi
  • More than 40 contemplations/revelations for use with yamabushi and oracles
  • Daitengu PC race:fly on raven wings!
  • Stats for the iconic daitengu yamabushi (complete with a new weapon)

Mysteries of the Tengu Road brings you a new character class. One devoted to transmutation magic. Choose your path and the unique special abilities that come with each. Adapted from the oracle class,the yamabushi’s contemplations are interchangeable with the oracles revelations,giving you more than 40 new abilities to give either your yamabushi or oracle.

Mysteries of the Tengu Road:Yamabushi,the Sublime Transmuter is a high quality,full-color,web-optimized,16-page pdf from Zombie Sky Press bundled with a stripped-down,printer-friendly version. It uses the Open Game License and the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Compatibility License. It is compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and standard 3.5E fantasy RPGs.

Reviews of The Faerie Ring

star spriteThe fine folks at Robot Viking seem to be enjoying The Faerie Ring: Along the Twisting Way Prelude (PFRPG):

The ideas within The Faerie Ring are evocative and interesting…

The execution is just as good, with excellent writing and an obvious passion for the subject matter that can’t help but get you excited about running a fey-based campaign. The full color art is great and would not look out of place in a book by one of the big RPG publishers…

And Dark Mistress reviewed it at EN World and Paizo, giving it 5/5 stars:

It does a very good job in capturing the complex nature of the fey, making them both alluring and scary at the same time. This gives just a taste of the fey leaving you wanting more…

See why the mighty Jeff Grubb says (from the foreword):

The kindly ones are back, and they are far from kindly. The wee folk have returned, and they are not as wee as centuries of propaganda would have you believe. They are as dangerous a group of lords and ladies as you would ever care to encounter, and they control their lands. Woe to any mortal who crosses them without their permission…

The Faerie Ring

The Faerie RingThe Faerie Ring: Along the Twisting Way Prelude

Nail down the furniture, and hide the children… the fey are coming!

The Faerie Ring is almost here, but before you meet the fey lords and their servitors within this new series, you need to get up to speed with The Faerie Ring: Along the Twisting Way Prelude. What are the fey? Where do they come from? Why do they torment you so? Find out on 12/21/2010.

Most cultures easily rattle off stories of the fey, portraying them in the most colorful of ways. On the surface, the tales seem little more than entertainment and whimsy, perhaps a moral interjected here and there. More often than not, they are so contradictory or ridiculous as to be easily dismissed. However, if you look long enough, you eventually realize that the fey are simply more diverse and complicated than previously imagined.

The fey aren’t like you and me.

In this book, you’ll find…

  • Secrets of the fey laid bare
  • Fey origin myths, philosophies, and social habits
  • Wonders of the Preternatural Planes
  • Glimpses into twisted, fey thought processes
  • New subtypes of fey
  • Evidence of fey lords, their demesnes, and their servitors
  • And more of the craziness that can only come from the fey!

The Faerie Ring brings you the worlds of the fey. From the fey lords to those that serve them. Their lands, their magics, their machinations. Everything a GM needs to bring a fresh dose of fey to a game. And for players, there are playable fey races, feats, incantations, and more. The Faerie Ring: Along the Twisting Way Prelude is merely the beginning of the journey.

The Faerie Ring: Along the Twisting Way Prelude is a high quality, full-color, web-optimized pdf from Zombie Sky Press. It uses the Open Game License and the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Compatibility License. It is compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and standard 3.5E fantasy RPGs.

More Mosquitofolk Reviews

Megan Robertson of RPG Resource gives a 5/5 star review of Here Be Monsters: Aching for Blood (Mosquitofolk) at DriveThruRPG and Paizo:

Here Be Monsters: Aching for Blood (Mosquitofolk)This is an excellent example of how to present a new monster – replete with background detail that enables you to embed them into your campaign world, and with a detailed lair designed to accommodate adventure at several levels depending on the strength of the party you have at the time.

You Can’t Escape the Mosquitofolk

The fine folks at Robot Viking seem to be enjoying Here Be Monsters: Aching for Blood (Mosquitofolk):

Here Be Monsters: Aching for Blood (Mosquitofolk)The concept is brilliant—humanoid mosquitos aren’t just unpleasant in a creepy-crawly way. They’ve got a giant proboscis that will probably kill you outright, and if not, it will suck out all of your blood…

It gets better. These man-sized bugs aren’t just one-dimensional baddies with a mysterious past. They’re essentially an evolutionary dead-end. If a mosquitofolk larva is left on its own, and isn’t eaten by predators, it will die anyway. They can’t make it to adulthood without being transmogrified by a mosquitofolk wound mage, who warps the body into a specific “design” suited for a particular task. I love how weird that is, yet still makes a kind of horrible sense. And I didn’t even mention the undead mosquitofolk yet…

The writing in this book is excellent, with rich descriptions evoking the weirdness and horror of these aberrant bloodsuckers. Monster ecologies are a lot of fun, and this one is high quality. I can’t wait to see the rest of the Here Be Monsters series.

First Review of Here Be Monsters

The first review of  Here Be Monsters: Aching for Blood (Mosquitofolk) is up at The Vorpal Spork:

Three pages in I was nodding my head and grinning. By the time I reached the end I was scheming about how I could drop my group into this buzzing buzz-saw.

… more than just a monster ecology, it also has some pretty kick-ass encounters and excellent M-folk lair map.
