Companions of the Firmament is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game compatible supplement that focuses on personal flight in your fantasy adventures and campaigns.  It provides support for gamemasters and players, offering advice, mechanics and options from all sides of the table so that your adventures can take to the skies.  Highlights include:

  • The Wyrm Rider archetype for Cavaliers to have a customized domesticated dragon as their companion.
  • The Sky Pilgrim archetype for Monks that focus on utilizing the element of air for exploration, offense and defense.
  • Expanded list of flying companions for Druids and Rangers.
  • Companion structured rules for creatures such as the Pegasus, Griffon, and Giant Eagle.
  • Domesticated flying mounts for any character that are scaled to level so that the entire party can have adventures in the sky.
  • Gear specific for use in flight.
  • Elaboration and extended rules to cover where the existing ruleset fall silent in regard to flying.
  • Advice and optional rules for dealing with flight in campaigns at any level.
  • Creature sheets containing 71 pieces of artwork designed to be printed out and used on a battlemat, making it easy to show when your characters are mounted on their companions, vehicles, or magic items.

Companions of the Firmament gives you the tools to outfit either a single player or an entire party with a flying mount which has been designed and tested to work with the existing system. It provides advice for game masters to shape their campaigns and adventures so that the wonder and excitement of flight can be brought to a campaign, and avoid unexpected surprises that circumvent challenges.

The PDF version of Companions of the Firmament contains some full color artwork and has four extra pages of color creature sheets, totally 188 pages.  The print version has a black & white interior and does not have the color creature sheets, totalling 184 pages in length.

Monster Sheets

Flying encounters can become complicated, especially if all of the participants are in the air at the same time.  Companions of the Firmament offers up several approaches to handling flight to fit what you consider fun.  One of the approaches is to use "Monster Sheets" in your aerial encounters.  Each sheet has the statblock for a flying monster along with a flying chart to make it visually easy what that particular monster can do when flying in the sky.  

Along with your PDF you will recieve a zip file containing 315 monster sheets covering all of the flying creatures in the first three Bestiaries of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.  

Riders on the Storm Adventure

This 18 page adventure for levels 5-7 is designed to be used with Companions of the Firmament.  Whether you want to have a stand alone special flying adventure, or just want to try out different flying options in CotF, this adventure is built to be quickly prepared to play, but provide enough hooks to expand upon if it is a hit.

Amazing quality from this kickstart backed sourcebook. Took an often overlooked facet of RPG gameplay and turned it into an integral part of my Pathfinder campaigns. Great artwork as well. Wyrmriders FTW!

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
