Faiths of Corruption, a Pathfinder Player Companion by Colin McComb, was released in October 2011. It features the faiths of Asmodeus, Lamashtu, Norgorber, Rovagug, Urgathoa, and Zon-Kuthon, as well as several additional evil-aligned minor deities.

Touch of EvilMorality is the shield of the weak. Followers of the evil gods know the truth—that the world is a harsh and uncaring place, and that only strength and cunning matter. From the crafty acolytes of the assassin god Norgorber to the howling hordes of Lamashtu the Demon Queen, the servants of dark gods need not fear the night, for they strive to be the most terrifying thing in it. Some may seek to justify their actions, yet others flock to blood-soaked banners with bitter joy, desiring nothing more than the chance to join in the fiery destruction of all things.

Faiths of Corruption presents a player-friendly overview of the evil-aligned religions and faiths of the Pathfinder campaign setting, along with new rules and information to help players customize pious characters in both flavor and mechanics.

Inside this book, you’ll find:

  • Information on each of the major evil gods and his or her corresponding religion, including what’s expected of adventurers of various classes, ways for the faithful to identify each other, taboos, devotions and ceremonies, church hierarchies, holy texts, religious holidays, and more.
  • New character traits to help represent and cement a character’s background in the church.
  • An overview of several secular organizations affiliated with the various evil churches.
  • Codes of conduct for the fearsome antipaladins of many different gods, designed to help distinguish evil holy warriors of different faiths.
  • New feats for merciless warriors and vindictive spellcasters.
  • New spells to help evil casters spread pain and despair.
  • Details on minor evil deities, demon lords and archdevils, elemental lords, the Four Horsemen, and more!
