November 19 New Releases

Here’s a look at today’s new and third party releases.

Pathfinder

Necromancers of the Northwest [visit their website here] has released a new collection of Pathfinder spells in their latest release, Advanced Arcana, Volume IV. “Advanced Arcana Volume IV is more than just a collection of over 100 brand new, never-before-seen spells. It, like its critically-acclaimed predecessors, was specifically designed to challenge the status quo of the way that magic works in your game. Previous installments of Advanced Arcana have questioned the concept of spell slots, and created spells that modify other spells, or which can be cast at different spell levels for different effects. This installment turns its eyes to the boundaries between the schools of magic themselves, creating versatile alternate-school spells, which have different effects depending on which school they are cast as, and powerful dual-school spells, whose effects are so potent that they cannot be contained by a single school of magic. This book also contains the return of the popular fountain spells, which allow you to restore a used spell slot to your mind after casting them.” Written by Alex Riggs and Joshua Zaback, it’s available for purchase from DriveThruRPG: Advanced Arcana Volume IV.
