  • The Big Book of Bloodlines This massive, huge book clocks in at 153 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of ToC/editorial, 1 page KS-thanks, 3 pages of SRD, leaving us with a colossal 146 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin this pdf with an introduction regarding the goals of this book – in one sentence: Making bloodlines more versatile and interesting. This is achieved in a rather ingenious way – the pdf designates a number of bloodlines as parent bloodlines, others as children of said bloodlines. When multiclassing soceror and bloodrager, all you need to ensure is that the two bloodlines share a parent, are parent and child or match – i.e. one is […]

  • Sorceror Bloodlines This pdf clock in at 15 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 11 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   So, this book introduces us to an array of more bloodlines for sorcerors…so how do they hold up?   The ancient bloodline is all about the spirits of the past, but more in a “tapping into the ancestor’s knowledge”-way. More interesting would be the crystal bloodline – fire rays and shards, refract illusions – nice one!   The lycanthropy bloodline nets you beast shape and claws/bites – the former do not explicitly specify whether they are considered primary or secondary natural attacks, […]

  • Class Extensions: Sorceror Bloodlines No filler seems to be the motto here, as we directly, sans introduction or the like, jump into the first bloodline, the Artificial Bloodline. Now don’t fret – the bloodline is thankfully not yet another construct-themed bloodline, but rather offers a touch attack versus manufactured objects as well as a DR-granting skin-coating and is otherwise very focused on crafting. A solid bloodline. The second bloodline is the Fatespun, which is interesting in that it nets you an oracle curse as well as oracle favored class bonus in lieu of sorceror options. Furthermore, the class may a very limited amount of times per day reroll d20-rolls that are not natural 1s or 20s. Luck’s Equilibrium is interesting […]

  • Monstrous Bloodlines for Sorcerors III The third pdf in the series, detailing Perry Fehr’s take on monstrous bloodlines for sorcerors, is 9 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 13/4 of a page SRD, leaving us with 5 ¼ pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The first of the new bloodlines would be the aranea bloodline, which offers the respective sorcerers Spiderman-style spinnerets at the wrists, a spidey-sense (roll multiple times perception-checks 3/day), poisonous touch and at high levels you can ignore the full-round metamagic casting restriction a limited amount of times per day. The capstone is slightly weak, as it allows you to turn into spider-like creatures for 1 hour per transformation until the […]
