Cults are a classic element in fantasy from the historical to the horrific, and the Cultic Cryptomancia explores the uses of cults of every kind in your campaign, from secret sects that live in the shadows and prey upon the weak-willed or disillusioned dregs of society to the near-forgotten relics and rituals echoing down from ancient times and still practiced by scattered adherents, covens, and rural traditions handed down from the oldest folkways far from the watchful eyes of the younger gods and civilized ideals of modern society. This product is replete with rules elements to bring any cult to life, including archetypes for apostate inquisitors and sublime bards, and the Eldritch oracle mystery containing 14 new revelations. For cultic characters of all types there are 8 new feats, from Ectastic Euphoria and Flagellant Focus to Sacrificial Summons and the dreaded Heart Ripper. Of course, no cultic product would be complete without a trove of forbidden magical mysteries, with 13 new spells including exsanguinate, torch-wielding mob, and orgiastic rite. The Cultic Cryptomancia is an ideal complement to a Gothic Adventure Path or any game where characters encounter eldritch writings, forbidden rites, and the masked, robed, or empty-eyed cultists who have given themselves body, mind, and soul to powers beyond.
