Magic is irrefutably powerful, but not always entirely reliable. In quarters of the Pathfinder world, like the spell-scarred Mana Wastes, invention supplants magic with its potential for wonders. With Pathfinder Player Companion: People of the Wastes you'll discover new technological innovations, from guns and explosives to dwarven gadgets and the state-of-the-art marvels of the gun-smithing city of Alkenstar. New archetypes, feats, traits, and other character options also unlock new levels of expertise in marksmanship, but also methods of taping into unpredictable surges of magical might. A whole frontier of danger and invention is yours to claim, if you can survive the wastes.
