Dare with Dire Deeds!

Forest Guardian Press brings you this new Base Class for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game that puts the "fell" in your fellowship and the "dire" in your direction...

The Direlock functions as a foil to spellcasters or as a competent eldritch empowered combatant, taking advantage of her perilous dire zone and confounding enemies with her dire mantle, fearsome slough and fell eldritch tendrils. 
If you want to crimp the casters in your game, try throwing a Direlock at them.

***Completely revised and updated***

This PDF comes complete with four archetypes - (the martial Banelock, hex-casting Dreadmasque, horrific Fear Eater and now the animal companion-bonded Predator), 17 new feats, a new spell, 17 inimica, 18 incunabula and favored class bonuses for all the Core races plus Drow, Tiefling and Goblin.

Also included are two extra printable sheets to make your Direlock easier to play - one containing all the inimica abilities, the other a management sheet so you can keep track of all of your Direlock's fell capabilities.

****UPDATED WITH ALL NEW ART, and now comes with character management sheets for all four archetypes as well as the DIRELOCK BASE CLASS****

Presented as a full color, illustrated PDF for viewing on your favorite device, or as a b+w PDF for low-carbon footprint printing.

I think this is one of the most interesting 3pp Pathfinder classes on the market. Are there any plans to create more material for it, or to encourage other publishers to do so?
Hat's off, this is creative and innovative.

Based on reviews fromboth Thilo “endzeitgeist” Graf (here and d20PFSRD and Paizo) and Tyler Beck (on d20PFSRD and Paizo), the following components have been modified, added or removed. The last item is that a NEW ARCHETYPE has been added for free!!!

Also, the file size of the color PDF is now half what it used to be - even though it is now extensively bookmarked!!!

If you have any further ideas, opinions or (shock horror) errata please do not hesitate to contact Forest Guardian Press at

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.
