In this Flip Through Matt takes a look Heroes of Humanity for Rifts from Palladium. Books. Heroes for Humanity is a source book for the Coalition Wars Campaign that crosses over with the Minion War and Megaverse in Flames. Since it is a Coalition War campaign book it has a lot of information building up the Coalition army, but it does have a different pitch than “destroy” Tolkeen Click here to view the video on YouTube. This is probably the best source book in the Coalition Wars.
In this review Matt looks at the Book of the Damned for the Pathfinder role-playing game. The book does contain information on demons, devils, daemons and the worship so the content might not be for everyone. Knowing that, The Book of the Damned contains a lot of information about the biggest and baddest fiendish divinities. Reaching into the deepest and darkest crevasses of the Abyss you learn about their worship, and the realms they live in. For player characters there is information the players can use to worship the fiends. Giving you tools like obedience, and sample structures for cults. I think the best part of the book is the section on contracts. As a G.M. I found this to be exhilarating! It is a great tool for trapping players who want to be tempted, or who can be duped into bartering with the devil. What makes the section so good is that they give you all of the parts of a contract and stress the importance of each one, more importantly it even gives you way to break the contract. I
In this Flip Through Matt takes a look at the Faiths of Golarion campaign setting for Pathfinder. This book includes ten lesser gods of Golaria. It offers up a a complete write up that includes their domain, sub domains, favored weapons, and an obedience. While these deities are not the major players in the pantheon of Golaria don’t think that they aren’t influential to their believers! Characters of any class can perform the obedience of their deity to be granted an ability that lasts for the day – if they have the Divine obedience feat. Further characters with the feat will be granted more power if they have at least 12 hd – sooner if they are of the right prestige class. Faiths of Golarion brings us 5 new domains and 4 sub domains plus new feats and spells. What I love about the Pathfinder faith books is that they take the idea of faith and break it down so any player character can believe as much or as little as the character would like.
