Ancestral Options - Half-Orcs


Brute Strength, Cunning Tactics!


In the Pathfinder Second Edition roleplaying game, a character’s ancestry matters more than ever before. Instead of picking a race and sticking with it, players are encouraged to customize the benefits a character gains from their lineage, with a wide assortment of ancestry feats gained at various levels. While the Pathfinder Second Edition Core Rulebook presents plenty of great options for each of these ancestries, the focus on customization means that there’s always room for new and exciting ways to bring your ancestry to the fore.


This book focuses on providing new ancestry-related options for half-orc characters. Torn between two worlds, these hardened adventurers are looked down on as brutish thugs by one culture, and as scrawny weaklings by the other. But hardened by the fires of hardship, they prove that they are mightier than the sum of their lineage. In this book, you’ll find:


  • 5 new half-orc heritages, including Megafauna Handler and Wild Half-Orc.
  • 12 new ancestry feats for half-orcs, ranging from 1st through 13th level, including Vandal, Orc Rage, and Incredible Tanacity!
  • A new archetype for half-orc characters, the war leader, whose personal battle prowess and masterful tactics inspire his allies and minions to greater heights in combat.

In addition, Tusks feat is in conflict with RAW Tusks. Would be best to rename it to Greater Tusks, prerequisite Tusks, and give it additional effect since your effect has better damage already and is a great potential to build on Tusks.

New Human Heritages need better layouting. The flavor sentence needs to be separated from the unlocked content sentences.

The archetype powers are missing the Orc trait or Haf-Orc trait to work with the Rage power. This needs to be updated with missing traits given to every Feat.

Also, at least some attempt must be made to do PF2-layout for feats and update the document to all the Ancestral Options series. This has all the pains of early PF2 homebrew, I hope it is supported in the future.

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.
