Lost Magic: Healer’s Sacrifice

La Miseria by Cristóbal Rojas One of the entries in our Lost Magic contest provides you with an interesting way to heal others. Just be mindful: Casters of this spell need to be very careful about their own health when they do this or suffer a dire fate.

Healer’s Sacrifice

School necromancy; Level cleric/oracle 3, druid 3, witch 3

Casting Time 1 full-round action

Components V, S

Range touch

Target other creature touched

Duration instantaneous

Saving Throw Will negates (harmless); Spell Resistance yes (harmless)

By ritually tracing the wounds on your target’s body and your own, you accept upon yourself a portion of her injuries and afflictions. Her wounds begin to close and fade, while matching ones erupt on your own body. She is healed of half her current hit point damage and half the damage to each of her ability scores. Additionally, half her temporary negative levels are dispelled. You suffer the damage and negative levels that you removed from her. Reduce hit point damage you suffer this way by your caster level. Reduce the number of negative levels and each kind of ability damage you suffer this way by 1 for every five caster levels you have (to a maximum reduction of 3).

Dark Deeds in Freeport Now Available for Pathfinder RPG

Dark Deeds in FreeportEven by Freeport’s jaded standards, the last three months have seen some peculiar happenings. Assassins easily dispatched an elven thief who had eluded them for six centuries, robbers breached an impenetrable vault, and poison claimed the lives of several well-hidden mistresses. Word has reached you that Freeporters in delicate or dangerous positions are willing to pay top coin to stop the flow of secrets…

Dark Deeds in Freeport is a five-part Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure arc anthology for PCs of 9th-12th level, by Mike Franke, Phil Minchin, and Christina Stiles. Follow a trail of mystery and supernatural horror from Dead Dock to Scurvytown, the Chambers Asylum and beyond to the mind-splintering secrets buried deep in the city’s pre-human past!

These all-new adventures—published under special license with Green Ronin—do justice to this classic RPG setting. To run them, the GM needs access to Pirate’s Guide to Freeport and the Freeport Companion: Pathfinder RPG Edition. (You’ll definitely want the Freeport Companion’s optional Insanity Point rules for this one!)

Strifeborn Ravager

Alexander mosaic photographed in Museo Archaeologico Naples (Provided by Magrippa and Piero)A rocky shape bursts from the ground in an eruption of bloody mud. Broken weapons jut from its massive body, and shards of shattered helmets encircle its head.

The strifeborn ravager is an elemental spirit corrupted and driven mad by the death and destruction of large-scale battle. Already impressive in size, truly gigantic specimens could exist if the battle that spawned it were expansive enough.

Treasures with a Tale to Tell: The Cloak of Slime

SlimeWith Deep Magic just hitting the shelves, gamemasters have no excuse for sub-par magic in their games. This extends to magic items, and, as a celebration of the debut of Deep Magic, I offer you all something to help you let your imaginations soar. Today, give your players the cloak of slime.

Appearance and History

You make out something glossy and reflective in your sputtering torchlight. Approaching cautiously, you see what at first appeared to be a patch of inert slime, but no, something is different about it. It has the definite shape of a cloak! Even down to the clasps that might hang upon a wearer’s shoulders. Do you dare to test this theory?

A cloak of slime is an aberration—a freak organism with potent sorcery and a sinister purpose. Centuries ago, an avatar of the demon lord of ooze and poison was summoned into existence by a self-destructive cult devoted to its name. The cultists fed the creature animals, prisoners, and sometimes their own members. While this creature remained on the material plane, the avatar left a thick and toxic spoor in its wake.
