The fifth in our line of Gothic Grimoires, To Serve a Prince Undying probes the cold and bitter heart of cultures and traditions devoted to despotism, where monarchy becomes absolute autocracy and might is pure and righteous tool of tyranny. To Serve a Prince Undying is an ideal complement to a Gothic Adventure Path or any game where characters must face up to a society in which absolute and unquestioning obedience is a matter of life and death... or worse, as death itself may be no escape.
Handed down through countless generations of slave-scribes, this benighted book includes 4 new inquisitor judgments, including pursuit and murder; new Vows of Obedience and Self-Sacrifice; access to a variety of spells of torment for inquisitors and ki-powered characters, including new spells extravasation of tears, revenancer's rage, and ruthless beating;and a host of rules for characters of many kinds to learn the ways of pain, including Lawful Evil antipaladins.
Designed by Clinton J. Boomer and Jason Nelson with the Legendary Games design team of Neil Spicer, Greg A. Vaughan, Matt Goodall, Jim Groves, Tim Hitchcock, Russ Taylor, and Clark Peterson.
