This book is available at DriveThruRPG and Paizo. Clockwork mages possess an eye for mechanisms, springs, gearing, and balanced forces, and their spells display a wide range of styles linked by these common themes. The spells and abilities...

Gibbering Oracles (Part 4 of 4)

(Illustration by Chris McFann) How can a god be mad? Some sages claim all the gods are mad, and we are but the figments of their raving intellects. Yet madness does not just mean a disordered mind caught up in its own delusions and faux-reality. If madness is one man’s illusion, perhaps sanity is also an illusion, but one shared by many instead of relegated to an individual. The psychotic simply perceives a different illusion or pierces the...

Because of their potent abilities, facestealers are justly feared by most...
