In case you missed it, Paizo just released Inner Sea Faiths for the Pathfinder Campaign Setting. This softcover book is a whopping 96 pages versus the normal 64-page format we normally see for these releases. This book can be used in your Pathfinder game or you can adapt it to your own fantasy game to add in some new deities and followers. I used Besmara in my last homebrew D&D campaign for 5th edition.
Across the Inner Sea region, few things are as ubiquitous as faith and religion. However, among the myriad nations and cultures, worship and devotion isn’t limited to only the area’s most widely acknowledged deities. Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Inner Sea Faiths sheds light on 15 lesser-known deities who nonetheless offer great power to their followers, granting spiritual might to any characters willing to offer devotion. Inside this book you’ll find details about these gods’ histories, dogmas, and practices, all designed to enrich your campaigns with divine lore, including:
- In-depth articles about the Inner Sea region’s more esoteric divinities, from Achaekek, god of divine punishment and patron of the deadly Red Mantis assassins, to Besmara, the lusty queen of pirates and tamer of the fierce beasts that dwell beneath the waves, to Milani, vehement enemy of tyranny and slavery, to Naderi, goddess of romantic tragedy and forbidden love.
- Guidance on how to play an adventurer or create an NPC devoted to a particular god, including the clothing, texts, and holidays sacred to the faithful, as well as aphorisms common among their ranks.
- Obediences and boons that can empower all worshipers of each divinity, especially those with levels in prestige classes devoted to their faith.
- Details about each divinity’s standing in the Great Beyond, as well as a look into the gods’ personal extraplanar realms.
- Insight into the fascinating creatures that serve each divinity, including the unique astral deva who heralds Kurgess, the Strong Man, and the veiled trumpet archon who heralds Sivanah, the Seventh Veil.
