Pathfinder Player Companion: Blood of the Sea

It Came from the Sea

Whether from the dark depths of the ocean or azure tropical seas, heroes rise from beneath the waves. Pathfinder Player Companion: Blood of the Sea explores the mystical paths and strange abilities of sea-born adventurers. Discover the secrets of aquatic elves, gillmen, merfolk, tritons, and more. New magic items and spells aid aquatic characters and land-dwelling characters alike. A host of new archetypes, feats, and other options allow you to infuse your character with the power of the sea. Dive into Blood of the Sea and discover oceans of possibility!

This data package includes:

  • Archetypes for a variety of classes, such as the coral witch and the kraken slayer paladin, as well as a new cavalier order and bardic masterpieces, useful for characters in aquatic campaigns.
  • Rules for playing nonstandard races like cecaelias, locathahs, and tritons, along with a collection of gear both magical and mundane that can help your heroes in the world beneath the waves.

Blood of the Sea is available now in our Player Companion #28 data package for just $4.99  and also includes Adventurer’s Armory 2!

Irongang Invasion #6 Vault of the Onyx Citadel

Assault the Vault!

For months, the merciless Ironfang Legion has struck out against humanity from its impenetrable, otherworldly Onyx Citadel! But now in possession of a key to this stronghold, the bold adventurers must rally their allies, breach the barrier between worlds, tame an alien wilderness, and finally bring the fight to their hobgoblin conquerors! Can the heroes best the Legion’s most devious commanders, including the unparalleled warrior-general Azaersi, or will they fall as readily as their homeland before hobgoblin blades?

This data package concludes the Ironfang Invasion Adventure Path!

You can pick up  all 6 chapters of the Ironfang Invasion Path in our store for just $24.99! This data package includes everything you need to properly run encounters in Hero Lab for the Ironfang Invasion Adventure Path. Note: Player and GM content is now available but the final chapter portfolios are still in review and will be added as soon as they become available.



Secured content delivery is now a reality! This marks an important milestone for Realm Works and we are now well on our way to launching the full Content Market!  In the weeks ahead we, and Paizo, will be busy doing quality checks on launch content to ensure that there are as few issues as possible. And of course we’ll be getting everything set up in the store and ready for purchase! In the mean time, you can head over to the site, poke around, create your store login and download some freebies while you’re there! As a special thank you for all your patience we’ve added The Streets of Zobeck to downloads, free to you for a limited time.

We will be away at Gen Con for the next week,  so please keep in mind staff will be at a minimum back home, but once we’ve returned we’ll dive back in and hopefully have the Content Market out to the world shortly after Labor Day!

robbowesRob Bowes

President of Lone Wolf Development and architect of products such as Realm Works®Hero Lab® and Army Builder®. Rob has spent the past two decades creating software used by tens of thousands of gamers to augment the tabletop gaming experience.

A changing of the guard is upon us. Some of the most stalwart volunteers on the Warhammer 40K team for Army Builder are no longer in a position to continue their advance. These key contributors carried the standard for over a decade, and their commissions have sadly come to a close. As they move on to new battlefields, we salute their enduring dedication and hard work. Everyone in the community benefitted from their efforts!

What does this mean for 40K and Army Builder? Quite simply, the 40K volunteer team is looking for new blood to replenish their ranks and carry the standard onward!

Are you familiar with 40K and the inner workings of Army Builder? Do you want to lend a hand, ensuring you and others have updated content for the latest 40K game? Please email to tell the team leads a little about yourself and what you can contribute to the effort.

Don’t forget to connect with us on social media for news and release updates throughout the month!

Until next month – Happy Gaming!
