Character Collection: Roka Mangouger, the Holy Terror

Advanced Races - Kobolds detailThe largest and fiercest kobold in a generation, Roka does not dodge or scurry. She charges into battle, rending her foes with tooth and claw. However, Roka is not simply an unthinking killer, she is also the priestess of the strange and bloody kobold goddess of eggs and pregnancy, Clutchmaw. Mangouger uses her rage and strength in the service of her bloody goddess. She defends vulnerable clutches of  kobold eggs from all danger, and she tracks down neglectful or slacking kobold husbands to put the fear of her goddess in them.

Roka’s father did not tend to his mother when she was pregnant with Roka’s clutch deep within the kobold ghetto of Zobeck. Instead, he gambled and schemed and lived high, while Roka’s mother struggled to catch rats and other vermin for food. The resulting clutch was a single, battered egg, and Roka’s mother protected it until she hatched, but died of starvation soon after. Despite her circumstances, the Mangouger was already a strong and tough pup, and she soon dominated the local hatchling pack. Within a few years, she was already pit-fighting and going head to head with giant weasels, dire rats, and adult kobolds. Her feral, throat-ripping combat style was popular and Roka became a minor celebrity.

Deep Magic: Witch Spells Preview

Deep Magic CoverPart of the fun of magic is that it can be used to augment some very specific character concepts, such as those based on the classes in Paizo’s Advanced Player’s Guide. As we were outlining and compiling the Deep Magic project, providing versatile spells that could serve several unique, flavorful purposes was an important goal—and, so far, I think we’ve wildly succeeded.

The Deep Magic spells for the witch class are a great example of this. Even though we’re sharing only a few names for now, it’s clear that the spells below fit the mysterious, otherworldly theme that drives many witch characters.

Take a look at a few of the spells Deep Magic will offer witches (animal contagion and heart skewer are personal favorites!). Although this might seem like a lot, keep in mind that it’s just a fraction of the witch spells the final book will contain!
