Friday News

Wandering the maze you find a scrap of parchment, obviously written by a madman. The scrawl is barely legible under the flickering torchlight, but you can see the following notes.

Rules Index Updated!

The rules index has been updated to include all of the rules and information from the following PDFs!

Monster Focus: Gravelings
Monster Focus: Liches
Favored Terrain: Lucky Dragon

Now you can get an idea as the content of every Minotaur Games PDF that is currently available.

Drive Thru RPG Sale

Time is running out on this fantastic sale of Pathfinder PDFs. You can find all of the Minotaur Games PDFs for 40% off this week only. The sale ends on Monday, July 1st, so head on over and check it out!

What do you want to see from the Minotaur?

I’ve got a lot of ideas for upcoming products, but I want to know what sorts of things you want to see from the Minotaur? More rules content? Setting information? Let me know in the comments of this post!

Tossing the missive into the corner, you continue to wander the maze, wondering if there is any way out…

Bonus Rules: Liches

Most of the time when I am putting together a PDF, one or more ideas gets left out. Occassionally these ideas get cut toward the end of the process when I am trying to get all of the content to fit into my 6-page layout. Well, not being one for wasting a good idea, I present them to you as a bonus. Check out this magic item that got cut from Monster Focus: Liches!


Phylactery of the Priest

Aura strong varied; CL 13th
Slot headband; Price 140,000 gp; Weight
This platinum phylactery is inscribed with the holy symbol of the goddess of death. The wearer of this phylactery gains spell resistance 18, a +4 profane bonus on Will saves made to reduce damage caused by channel energy, and a +3 deflection bonus to AC. In addition, this phylactery grants a +4 enhancement bonus to Wisdom and Charisma. Finally, whenever the wearer of this phylactery uses channel negative energy to harm living creatures, the amount of damage is increased by 50%. A lich can use this item as its phylactery by spending an additional 50,000 gp for its construction.
