It’s that wonderful time of year again, boys and ghouls… The annual Halloween sale, when the Darker Paths series of supplements are on sale for a ridiculously low price. And of course they’re all usable with almost all old-school, 0E/1E/2E type games. This is honestly some of my favorite work.
How low, and what do you get?
Darker Paths 1: The Necromancer
The necromancer is a master of death and the undead; his spells are centered on dealing with crypts and tombs, creating and treating with the undead, as well as emulating some of the powers of the undead at higher level. 20 pages, on sale for $3.42.
This witch is not a sexy nature-worshiper. Nor is she a misunderstood and unjustly persecuted healer and herbalist. This is the witch of the Brothers Grimm, the Malleus Maleficarum, and Medieval folklore. It features approximately fifty new spells such as Hand of Glory, Blight Field, Candle Magic, and Masse Noire, plus full descriptions of spells that are shared with other classes, so players will have everything they need at their fingertips. Cover art and an interior character illustration is by veteran OSR artist Jason Sholtis. 20 pages, on sale for $3.42.
Darker Paths 3: The Demonolator
Demonolaters are priests who serve demon lords and ladies. The character class is a sub-class of cleric, but each demon lord has priests with special powers and spells, nearly 40 of which are included (with names like dark offering, invite possession, and warp reality).
This supplement also includes rules for demonic pacts and statistics for the demon lord Dagon and his minions, the dreaded carcharo demons. 15 pages, $2.93.
And best of all, there’s a bundle of all three available for just $9.95! Dude, I wrote this, and I’d pay that much for it, easy.
