Weekly Wonders - Rebellious Archetypes Volume VII
Be a Rebel with a Cause!
Not every evil lurks in deep, dark dungeons far away from innocent townsfolk, waiting patiently for adventurers to kick down their doors and start fighting. Some monsters don't just prey on society from without, but have burrowed and wormed their way into the very heart of the civilized world, and twist and corrupt the very laws that are supposed to protect the innocent, using them to oppress and exploit them, instead. These evils are no less a threat than the ones that most adventurers face, but many PCs are ill-equipped to deal with them. This is a job for rebels.
This book presents five new rebellious archetypes for five different classes. Included are the feral rebel, a hunter archetype whose animal companion can change shape, and who specializes in infiltration and sabotage, the bloody sickle, a medium spirit devoted to revolution and casting down the aristocracy, the guerilla agent, a ranger archetype that specializes in hit-and-run tactics and develops a taste for fighting certain organizations, the partisan, a skald archetype that focuses in winning over the hearts and minds of the public, by any means necessary, and finally the divine liberator, a warpriest archetype devoted to freedom in all its forms, who tears down symbols of oppression, lights the way of freedom, and inspires her allies to great deeds.
Whether you're about to embark on a politically-themed campaign (such as the official Paizo adventure path focusing on revolution), or you just want a selection of exciting new abilities for passionate and freedom-loving PCs, this book has lots of tantalizing options to offer. Even GMs can get in on the fun, as several of the archetypes here are perfect for rebellious villains as well, and can make for exciting and memorable encounters.
