Undead Paragon Classes III: Banshee, Ghost & Wraith

Ever wanted to play a wraith?

Welcome to the strange and terrifying world of incorporeal undead.

Undead Paragon Classes III introduces three new 1-20 player classes: the Banshee, Ghost and Wraith. These classes provide strong, balanced options for undead players while hitting all of the classics of each monster. Undead Paragon Classes also delivers a 0RP racial template, the Ectoplasm, which can be added to any other race to make it an incorporeal undead. Why play a dwarf when you can play an ectoplasmic dwarf?

Included in Undead Paragon Classes:

  • The Banshee, a sorrowful screamer with powerful (but indiscriminate) area controlling abilities.
  • The Ghost, an obsessive spellcaster determined to share his pain with others.
  • The Wrath, a creature of pure darkness who dishes out death and destruction to stay in the fight.
  • The Ectoplasm, a 0RP racial template that can be added to any other race to make them incorporeal undead.
  • 20 Undead and Ectoplasmic Feats, such as Death Speech, Visions of Mortality, and Worked to Death.
  • Raise Spirit, a new spell that allows for transformation into an ectoplasm.


Handbook to the Shadow Plane

Dark, mysterious, and dripping with ominous potential, the Shadow Plane is a favorite of spellcasters and arcane experimenters. Both coterminous and coexistent with the Material Plane, this strange realm provides creatures for summons, energy for spells, and a risky shortcut for canny travelers.

In this tome you will find some secrets of the Shadow Plane unmasked. The Handbook to the Shadow Plane provides new denizens, hooks, and qualities for the Plane of Shadow, including new rules on traveling between layers of shadow, plane-specific encounters, and treasures you might plunder from this mysterious world.

Inside the Handbook to the Shadow Plane, you will find:
  • Umbral paths, umbral portals, and the hazards therein.
  • The maddening curse of the baleful moon.
  • Memory stealing dusk snatchers and Umbral hags.
  • Shadow imbuements, umbral elixirs, and umbral compasses.
  • Spells such as darken the inner light and shadow puzzle sphere.
  • The shadow shaman spirit and the class-transforming shadow psychopomp hex.
Don't leave home without it!

365 Magic Items

Benjamin Medrano has made something incredible with 365 Magic Items.

Inside you’ll find weapons and armor, shields and rings, rods, staves, crowns, and wondrous items of all sorts.

You’ll find magical sets, such as the celestial crescents and set of the fool. You’ll find sets of sin ranging from envy to wrath.

Within are weapons of incredible power, such as bonedrinker, blade of the moon, and the elemental wheel. Alongside them are commoner tools, such as the coin of good fortune and magistrate’s gavel

Have a character concept? You’ll find something for it within. Need a campaign-driving MacGuffin? Try the pearl of life or crown of the necromantic lord (or dozens more).

Maybe you’d like an eternity seal to lock away a cursed treasure? Or an ephemeral breastplate for a quick escape? Or a clone amulet for the ultimate backup plan?

You’ll find all that, and hundreds upon hundreds more, within.


Seven Bizarre Races

Let’s mix up the playbook.

The races presented within are more than just a collection of minor attribute bonuses and abilities designed to get a bit more damage out of a longsword. These races are unique, vivid, and bizarre in a balanced and instantly recognizable way. They change the game, and present an excellent, fascinating toolkit for players interested in variety.

With these bizarre races, nobody will forget who you are or what you look like. With these races, suddenly your game is new again.
  • BUNNYTAURS: Halfling-rabbit centaurs, quick and alert but gripped by instinctual cowardice.
  • KINDERCLOAKS: Plump, hooded shadows crafted from primitive magics that turn to petrified smoke in bright light.
  • MERRIEPETALS: Revelrous flowers which exude a certain allure which makes them irresistable – or is it the hallucinogenic spores?
  • MISBORN: Gangly psychopomp-touched humans with the ability to talk to the dead and see through planes.
  • PAINTERLILIES: Two-dimensional sentient paintings, with the ability to meld onto surfaces.
  • SHADOWFRIENDS: Frail fey giants created by a child’s wish, disturbing in form but remarkably kind.
  • BLESMOLFOLK: Sluggish, pain-immune mole rats, carving out vast labyrinths and dungeons. Blesmolfolk are divided between four distinct racial castes: industrious workers, crafty warriors, conniving consorts, and willful queens.

Maniac Character Class

Exploit your wildest emotions with the powerful maniac!

Maniacs are reckless arcane spellcasters that enter into an altered state of consciousness called rave. While in a rave, these rash enchanters draw upon a set of primal forceful emotions rooted deep in their psyche.

Burning emotions to fuel their magical abilities, maniacs harness powers that other arcane practitioners consider unreliable if not outright dangerous. Often ostracized by society and treated as lunatics by their peers, maniacs seek out extreme situations in which they can explore the full emotional array, drawing them towards a life of adventuring.

Included in the Maniac Character Class:
  • The Maniac Character Class, a wild 9th level spellcaster that harnesses emotions as fuel.
  • 20 emotional raves for the maniac to exploit.

Praise for Dragons are Above My Pay Grade!

"Dragons are above my pay grade feels like it could be the great beginning of a dragon slaying campaign, giving the players a very nice taste of taking on one of the biggest and baddest beasties in the bestiary. It'd be a great way to jump into things and ask your party 'Hey, you wanna kill a dragon today?'" - N. Jolly

"I found the premise fun, the characters likeable, the new monsters fun and interesting, the names of the kobolds and dragon just unpronounceable enough ("Rowg? Like Smaug? Or is it more like 'rock,' or 'cog?'"), and the humor measured and well-placed...it's a great adventure, the characters are fun and inspired, the concept is great and well-executed" - Simon Barr
