The Animist: Nature Incarnate

Watermarked PDF

You have the right to bear arms, scorpion stingers, and everything in between!

Druids, rangers, and others who revere nature barely scratch the surface, for they interact with the products of nature: her magic, her flora, and her fauna, but not with the primal entity whose personality is reflected in everything she creates. Animists commune directly with the primal being herself, offering themselves up as living clay to be shaped into a pure representation of her will. These representations, known as aspects, encompass everything from the pedestrian products of nature to the concepts and emotions that drive nature forward. Despite their range of expression, all animists are united in their adoration of their patron, and are, in essence, nature incarnate.

Commissioned by "Sugar Momma" Patreon backer Sasha Hall, the animist base class presents a new, flavorful system of druidic pact magic with an incarnum-style twist. Featuring the Prominence mechanic, animists take on different natural aspects each morning, but can choose to spend multiple aspect slots to dig deeper and deeper into a single aspect, unlocking further related abilities in a single niche at the cost of reduced versatility. A selection of minor aspects rounds out the animist's daily loadout, ensuring that there's always some interesting little trick on hand for when the going gets rough.

Was just wondering why this isn't included in the class bundle.

And not just this, honestly, there's a lot of material in the class bundle that has been left out even though there's material within it that references the left out material, such as the pirate aspects or the truenaming items PDFs.

Got a list for me? I'll happily fix it.

I believe these should be included to make it a more complete bundle:
The Animist: Nature Incarnate
Ultimate Truenaming
Class Expansions: Natural Disaster Animist Aspects
Class Expansions: The Pious Arcanist [PFRPG]
One Bling to Rule Them All - Scaling Magic Items
One Bling to Rule Them All: Glyphed Weapon Wrappings
Remedial Tinkering - Arcanotech
Remedial Tinkering: Rocket's Red Glare
Runesmithing Expanded - The Animator Archetype
Runesmithing Expanded: Equipment Runes
Strange Magic Expanded - The Elegist
Strange Magic Items - Ethermagic
Strange Magic Unchained - Variant Multiclassing

I'm not sure if these classes are with the bundle at all, but I'm putting them down anyway just in case:
The Primordial Dancer: Creation's Muse
The Assassin: A Modular, Momentum Maneuvers Base Class

Alrighty, since the bundle is for my classes and not for expansions on first-party content or universal stuff, these three weren't added. The rest should be in. Thanks ;)

Class Expansions: The Pious Arcanist [PFRPG]
One Bling to Rule Them All - Scaling Magic Items
One Bling to Rule Them All: Glyphed Weapon Wrappings

The rest are in. Thanks :)

Also, as these things go, hit me up at and I can hook you up with a coupon for a free copy of whatever you want to thank you properly. If you choose a physical book, that will be at cost to print.

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.
