  • Convergent Paths: Clerics of the Cloth This installment of RiP’s Convergent Paths-series is 14 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 11 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We kick off the pdf with a simple archetype – unarmored clerics. These guys don’t get the proficiencies with armors or shields, but when not heavily encumbered and unarmed, they get wis-mod to AC and CMD, also applying the bonus when flat-footed and against touch attacks. When under fear-related conditions or confused, these bonuses are negated and they don’t stack with other wis-to-AC-abilities.

  • Convergent Paths: Fey Archetypes The second installment of Rite Publishing’s Convergent Paths-series is 16 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD and 2 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 11 pages of content – so let’s take a look, shall we?   Following the direction established in the first issue, we once again have the class options provided herein framed by a well-written narrative – and honestly, I do really enjoy these. If you read as many crunch-heavy supplements as I do, you’re welcoming supplements that don’t read like an EULA. Just wanted to for once acknowledge this, as the narrative also roots the content in a thematic context and, from experience, I know that […]

  • Convergent Paths: Students of Arcanum Archetypes This supplement is 11 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   After a short summary of the content, we get a well-written piece of IC-prose introducing us to the Arcanum College of Wizardry, which serves as a thematic backdrop and unifying theme for these new options – each of the college’s prestigious houses featuring one specific area of expertise.   The first of said houses would be House Dweomerden, which specializes in utilitarian spells and replaces the scribe scroll feat and arcane school with a bonus spell slot that has to be […]
