Spheres of Guile

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Selected Option:

Adventuring demands characters test their skills across many spheres of life—heroes explore their world, discover dangerous secrets, find hidden treasures, pull off incredible trickery, talk their way out of trouble, and pull off skillful maneuvers in combat.

The new rules in Spheres of Guile allow characters to use their skills in hundreds of new ways, including things otherwise possible only with magic. New guidance also helps players and GMs to take advantage of understanding character motivations, whether to have more satisfying roleplaying encounters or to thwart enemies more dramatically with specialized talents and class features.


Spheres of Guile introduces fifteen skill spheres that unlock extraordinary and highly customizable options for every skill in the game. You can build a character all your own by choosing numerous talent from these spheres as one of five new classes—the agent, trained spy and thief; the courser, a master wilderness survivor; the envoy, an inspiring virtuoso wielding words like weapons; the mastermind, always prepared to exploit enemy weaknesses; and the professional, an expert in whatever she chooses. In addition, trade traditions, feats, archetypes, and other customization options open up the flexibility of skill spheres to characters of any class.

Just out of curiosity ... do you think y'all are done with issuing errata updates? While I've seen my DM's PDF of this awesome book, I tend to like to order my hardcopy version after all (or most) of the revisions for a given PDF are all complete.

Thanks for your help! And yes, I *love* this book!! It's the best PF1 sourcebook for stealthy and beguiling types!

Hey there! I've already got the other spheres books, loved them. I'm almost certainly going to get this one too. But I love my physical version of books! When the print on demand book comes out, is it possible to get the purchase price of the PDF added to it, if you've already got the PDF? I'd buy this in a heartbeat if so!

As an excited, SUPER excited for the PF2E version of these to show up. My group plays 2E regularly and would love to try out spheres in it!

Would there be any projects on how to mix Spheres with the d20herosrd aka Mutants & Masterminds?

A co-colaberation with Onyx Path's Chronicles of Darkness or Storypath System (Scion, Trinity Continuum, They Came From...) would be well received, just to note!

Will there be a 5E version of this to go with Power and Might? Also, any chance of any of the big three coming to 2nd Edition Pathfinder?

I can't speak definitively about 5e, but we are working on a Pathfinder 2e version of spheres.

Hey Drop Dead Studios (and/or Matt Daley - see below)! One of my fave 3PP supplements in PF1 is Rogue Glory. I was stoked to hear that after it came out in 2013, Adam Meyer was going to have a Kickstarter for Rogue Glory 2. Although I don't think it was successful? So my question to you is ... is there any "Rogue Glory 2" material or connection involved with this Spheres of Guile release?

Of course, this is all enthusiastic curiosity, as I plan on buying Spheres of Guile anyway! And hopefully in print version, too! Thank you!

There is quite a bit of material in the Skill Uses chapter that builds on ideas from Rogue Glory, although you don't need the original book for any of it. I would also advise looking into the Subterfuge and Infiltration spheres in particular in addition to the new Agent class.

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.
