Gothic Ancestries: Gargoyles


Book One: Gargoyles

Welcome to the first entry of the Gothic Ancestries series of books that expand and detail new races, locations, and equipment for the darker and more gothic sides of Pathfinder Second Edition.

Included in this dense and richly detailed 14-page book:

  • A full and complete Ancestry, including background information and world lore.
  • 3 complete Heritages of stone
  • 28 new feats for both Gargoyles and others!
  • 4 exclusive and unique backgrounds for gargoyle characters

The Gargoyle ancestry is a perfect compliment to the newly launched Dark Archives content expansion and will be well-at-home in near any gothic, dark fantasy, or high adventure setting!

From the preview: I would recommend looking at the immunities that Skeleton and Automaton/Poppet get to pull from for the Gargoyle Form benefits. As is, the sheer amount of things it gives immunity to is staggering, including an entire school of magic and numerous status effects, as well as most afflictions. Further, I'm not sure how "immunity to healing" works - is it meant to be that you can only be healed using Repair?

This is good feedback, thank you. The original intent on Immunity versus Healing effects is that healing can only be done through Treat Wounds or Rest and at player option through feats to regain some of that by converting Holy Water into a form of Healing Potion they can imbibe for a similar effect to healing potions. I'll be re-evaluating those base immunities and weaknesses through the point-scaling system I built for feats. It'll take me a few days to gather enough information to build, scale, and adjust but it should come out the other side with more options and feats and a base which has less penalties and benefits. I'll be looking into (and dissecting) Skeletons and Automatons/Poppets in the meanwhile to read into Paizo's balancing on similar ancestries in the meantime.

The PDF will be updated on here when that's done and I'll introduce into the description a Changelog to note the errata.

Keep in mind that Treat Wounds also has the Healing trait. But glad you'll keep iterating!

Rules Edition(s)
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.
