[Review] Faiths of Corruption

Faith of Corruption  is Pathfinder Player Companion for the Patfinder RPG easily adaptable to any fantasy world.

What are you buying?
A supplement of 32 pages about playing characters faithful of an Evil God in Golarion. Pay attention to what I've just said: it's not about Evil GODS, but about the characters worshipping them. There are no godly plans, godly relationships or even pantheon structure. This supplement helps players and DM that want to go into the spiritual and mundane life of a faithful of an evil religion. All the six major evil religions are detailed in a practical and concise way. You will learn who is the typical follower, what's his relationship with the civilized world, how he can express his devotion and what are his taboos.
there are also small chapters about other minor divinities and organisations.

Who need this?
Enyone, in any RPG needing a quick way to roleplay an evil character with a religious flavour or any GM needing a quick way to portrait an evil church.

The Good
  • RULES LIGHT Only 4 pages are strictly related to the Pathfinder engine. The rest of the book is totally crunch free.  
  • PATHFINDER QUALITY 100% in color, with nice illustrations and good paper. What do you want more?  
  • EASY TO USE. If you have character wanting to worship, let's say Lamashtu, you have 6 pages to read and you can start playing.
  • NUALIA The cover depicting the villain of the first volume of the Rise of the Runelords adventure path is lovely and makes me feel delightfully old.
The Bad
  • SHORT Every cult here was worth more space. Minor divinities and organisations are just sketched. 
  • CTHULHU Full fledged Lovecraft mythos in Golarion are a little out my zone of comfort.
The Verdict
It's a good book if you need it. If you don't, probably you can save the 11$

Faith of Corruption is available from:

NOTE: If you buy from here I will get a little income, with no extra cost for you. Just to be straight.
