New Pathfinder RPG book: Ultimate Intrigue!

20 Mar

ultimate-intrigueWe will have a new book in the Guild soon, with a new class: the Vigilante! Here is the info from Paizo’s website:

Looking to play the billionaire playboy type? Well look no further! Ultimate Intrigue, our most recent Pathfinder RPG release will give you all the rules to play your favorite caped crusader or add depth to any rogue character!

In the right setting, a single scathing word can prove deadlier than a poisoned dagger. Behind the scenes of heroic battles and magical realms lies a seething underbelly of danger and deception. This world of intrigue holds endless possibilities for adventure, as heroes duel with words instead of steel, plot daring heists, and engage in battles of wills against relentless nemeses. A high-stakes game of shadows and secrets is yours to master—if you have the wits!

Whether the heroes are taming the blood-soaked back alleys of their favorite metropolis or jockeying for the queen’s favor alongside highborn nobles, Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Intrigue is an invaluable companion to the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook. This imaginative tabletop game builds upon more than 10 years of system development and an Open Playtest featuring more than 50,000 gamers to create a cutting-edge RPG experience that brings the all-time best-selling set of fantasy rules into a new era.

Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Intrigue, includes:

  • The vigilante, a new character class that lives two lives—that of an unassuming member of the community, and a cloaked crusader with his own agenda!
  • New archetypes for alchemists, bards, druids, hunters, inquisitors, investigators, mesmerists, rangers, rogues, slayers, spiritualists, and more!
  • New feats and magic items for characters of all sorts, granting mastery of street-smart combat, impenetrable disguises, and misdirection.
  • Dozens of spells to manipulate tense social settings, whether to reveal adversaries’ secrets or hide the truth.
  • A complete system of influence, providing new goals and rewards to challenge players and link their fortunes to nonplayer characters and organizations.
  • Systems and advice to help Game Masters introduce a variety of new encounters into their games—daring heists, extended pursuits, and tense searches for buried secrets.
  • Rules for social combat and verbal duels, allowing characters to use words as weapons to sway hearts and humiliate foes.

    And of course there will be nothing for defensive players like myself. *sigh* One of these days they’ll make an “Ultimate Protection” book or something. I keep hoping, but… *sob*

      Well, there’s no ultimate “defense” book but you can say they’re scattered across the different books. Google “pathfinder feats srd” and check out the “feat tree” which compiles all the feats.

    The feat tree is nice, but that’s not enough. There’s a book devoted to intelligence builds(Ultimate Magic), a book devoted to strength builds(Ultimate Combat), a book devoted to charisma builds(Occult Adventures), a book devoted to mixed builds(Advanced Class Guide), and now a book devoted to wisdom and dexterity builds, so why can’t there be a book devoted to constitution builds? It’s unfair how they exclude us!

      You’re not alone, Nate. Actually, come to think of it, you are.

    Defense is superior! Defense is almighty! If only people would cast aside their heathen rituals of muscle and magic and turn to the shining wonder of armor and shields! We would enter a new golden age of peace and prosperity, where no one is in conflict because everyone is untouchable! I can still see it… the dream of ultimate defense… it is so close, yet so distant… Please! Heed my words! Do not listen to those- augh! *gets dragged away by riftwardens*
