What would you get if there was a strange and unholy union between the witch, the wizard… and Elric? You’d get the warlock, that’s what!
The warlock is just one of the 12 new and expanded Pathfinder Roleplaying Game classes in the recently released hardcover edition of the New Paths Compendium.
The warlock gains his power through contact with mysterious and sometimes forbidden forces, using his bond weapon as a conduit. He receives not only spells but also the ability to fire bolts of arcane force known as dread bolts. Some warlocks seek out the source of their power, though few actually discover it. Most of them care little where the power comes from as long as they are able to harness it.
Warlocks are often loners, whether because society has shunned them or because they simply prefer to be alone. Regardless, warlocks still occasionally bond with a small group of people who are willing to accept the warlock for who he is. Such rare individuals typically gain the warlock’s eternal loyalty.
The expanded, hardcover edition of the New Paths Compendium presents 12 new and expanded Pathfinder Roleplaying Game classes from level 1 through 20—plus new feats, new spells, and new archetypes.
