Most of the core sorcerer bloodlines are a trifle generic. Most of their abilities seen to be an amalgamation of the powers of several different types of creature that qualify as potential originators of that bloodline. That is absolutely fine for a sorcerer whose bloodline originated in exposure to some demonic energy, or a blessing from the heavens. But what if your bloodline is more focused?.
This book is for those sorcerers that can trace their actual ancestry back to a specific influx of exotic blood. It offers you 16 new variant sorcerer bloodlines for your game, each one a new take on one of the core bloodlines. Each has a list of bonus spells and bonus feats applicable to the bloodline, a new bloodline arcana, and at least one (and as many as five), replacement bloodline powers. Select from among the following:
Artificer – An arcane bloodline that specialises in the use of charged magic items rather than metamagic.
Barbed – An infernal sorcerer with a spiky outlook on life whose ancestry can be traced back to spiny devils.
Depthspawn – The blood of slimy deep sea aberrations flows through the veins of this sorcerer.
