What path will you walk?

Discover your true potential with Paths of Magic, the final book of the “Path” series for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game by Ascension Games! This book serves as a compilation, rebalance, and update of all previous books in the "Path" series, along with plenty of brand-new content to go along with it. Inside you’ll find a massive library of options for your favorite base and core classes, exploring the concepts of shadows, artifice, and nature through new classes, feats, magic items and more!

Paths of Magic has several features, including:

  • Nine new base classes: the eldritch cabalist, the cunning saboteur, the spirit-calling invoker, the stealthy nightblade, the protective warden, and more.
  • Dozens of new options and archetypes for your favorite classes, such as the metallurgist alchemist, animist barbarian, and the shadow priest cleric.
  • Nearly 150 new feats to support all kinds of play styles from spellcasters to close-range combat, including metamagic feats, combat feats, and new “technique” feats that grant specialized combat options.
  • Over 250 new spells for practically every magic user. Take on armies with conjure siege weapon, or create an explosion of verdant life with the wild growth spell. Trap your foes within the empty void prison and wither them away with deadly eclipse.
  • The rune magic system, where every spell serves to empower the next, complete with nearly 200 “runic scripts”, feats, magic items, and archetypes.
  • New magic weapons, armor, wondrous items, and more. Shatter foes’ defenses with the hand of the monolith or hide in the shadows with the silhouette.

Paths of Magic is a full-color product (in both electronic and print formats), 476 pages in length including cover pages, designed and written by Christopher Moore of Ascension Games, LLC.

Really silly question but is this for Pathfinder 1st or 2nd Edition?

Would be helpful to clarify the description... this is not necessarily a new book.
It should state that there are only 3 New classes, and revised and updated material from the previous three books. It is great the the Occult classes have been added to spell lists.
Would have appreciated just a book with new material... and a separate book with updated material. Feel like most of this book was double dipping if we already purchased the other three.

Thanks for your feedback. I've updated the description to explicitly state that this is a compilation of the previous works, in addition to its new content.

Thank you very much, was going over all four books all night trying to single out the new content. I very much liked the series and followed on Kickstarter.
The artwork is great as usual, and appreciate the newer content.

How much of this book is new and how much is just compiled from the three previous releases?
Customer avatar

As a comparison, the total page count of Path of Iron, Shadows, and Wilds was about 350 pages, whereas this book is over 470. So, quite of content has been added, in addition to compiling the rules of the previous three.

Same thing I wanted to ask. This is quite hefty tome! Wow.

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.
