Divine magic is one of the most common components of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Humble adept NPCs, evil humanoid shamans, heroic clerics, and stalwart paladins alike use it. Divine spells call to mind major events in popular games and fictions, ranging from the summoning of demons and otherworldly allies to the power to heal, curse, and even raise the dead. Divine spells are the tools used in most campaigns to represent the world's magic of lore, restoration, and communing with the gods. A great deal of the tone of fantasy in a campaign stems from those who use divine magic and where one finds it.

Pathfinder


Fantasy stories are full of warriors who have been trained to face supernatural evils, mad prophets who call upon powers no one understands, and failed priests who still recall a few of their prayers of healing and discovery. Such characters can be built, at least sometimes, with the multiclassing rules and prestige classes, but such efforts often feel awkward and might not make sense when a character's entire backstory is taken into account. In a core rulebook, the number of character options that can be presented is limited, but many players quickly crave more flexibility.

The Genius Guide to Divine Archetypes provides the material necessary to give spellcasting classes new forms of divine magic or to add divine power to classes that normally lack it. It does this through the use of archetype packages-a way to replace a set of related class abilities normally included in base classes with new powers (in this case, tied to divine magic). These archetype packages can change how magic works for a character (such as the gnostic archetype), add an element of divine spellcasting to characters who normally lack it (such as with the wise and witness archetypes), or grant wholly new divine powers to characters based on the flavor of their faith (such as the chantry and exorcist archetypes).

This review was first published in GMS Magazine and written by Thilo Graf. This pdf is 18 pages long, 2/3 of a page front cover, 1 page editorial and SRD, leaving 16 1/3 pages of content for the divine archetypes, so let’s check them [...]

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.
