WHAT IS THE BOOK OF THE RIGHTEOUS?

The Book of the Righteous presents the most comprehensive pantheon ever seen in the d20 System. This massive, 320-page hardback provides more than 20 pick-up-and-play churches corresponding to gods that feature in most fantasy campaigns (god of war, god of justice, etc.). Each church features lavish detail, including in-depth information on its clerics, holy orders, dogma, prayers, and rituals. These churches can be used in any campaign to bring a whole new level of detail to the religious characters. Plus, for those who don't have a complete cosmology in their game, The Book of the Righteous provides a comprehensive mythology that unifies all of the gods in the book. That mythology, and its corresponding cosmology, is not tied to an existing campaign setting, making it as portable and useful as Green Ronin's critically acclaimed Freeport series. The Book of the Righteous also features a new core class, the holy warrior, and new prestige classes, feats, spells, domains, magic items, and artifacts. Third in Green Ronin's Arcana series, The Book of the Righteous is a divine sourcebook like no other.

SUBMISSION DETAILS

Submissions will not be republished in any format other than this website without your permission and will be placed here as a resource for other gamers; we will not consider them our property and you will be credited with their creation. We may edit submissions, but will send the edited submission to you before publication. We maintain the right to refuse to publish any submission for any reason (but we're really friendly people, so we won't for any really capricious reason). Publication of submissions in no way grants the author the right to publish other material using copyrighted material from Book of the Righteous, including its characters and themes.

MAILING LIST DETAILS

Our Book of the Righteous mailing list will only ever be used to announce updates to this site. We will not provide your email address to anyone else for any purpose whatsoever. You should be aware that the list is hosted by Topica and we cannot control their use of the emails (however, they have a full privacy policy which you can review if you are concerned).

We will not use the BotR announcement list even to hawk other Green Ronin products. It is literally just to keep you up to date on changes made to this site (such as the addition of new myths, items, etc.).

We will not make announcements when ever anything is added to the site. Rather, we will aggregate announcements, likely providing a weekly or monthly update of what has been added with links directly to the material.

If you would like to join the announcement list, simply put your email address in the box to the left (where it says "your email") and click on the Join button. You will then be prompted to join Topica (if you have not already). Once you've done this you will receive a confirmation email, which you will need to reply to and you'll be part of the list.

RIGHTEOUS ERRATA

Note: If you find an error not on this list, please pass it along to botr@greenronin.com. These errata do not include typo correction; however, for future editions we’d be pleased to hear about any typos you might find. They may be emailed to the same address. Thank you!

Page 186: In the picture caption, the word “Union” should be replaced with the word “Unity,” which is the correct name of the prestige class in question.

Page 223: Under the header “Gods by Alignment,” there are references to table 6-1. These references should be to table 9-1.

Page 224: Tables 6-1 and 6-2 should be numbered 9-1 and 9-2.

NEW! Page 242: "In the PH it is suggested that every church in a religion has holy warriors.... it is further suggested that each of these types of holy warrior be playable as a prestige class" The DMG says this, not the PH. [Thanks, Certic!]

Page 244: Under the header “Domain-Based Special Abilities,” there is a reference to table 6-1. This should refer to table 11-1.

Page 257: Under the Beauty Domain, the “Fair Light” spell should be italicized, as it is new to this book.

Page 258: Under the Truth Domain, the “Unveil Secrets” spell was cut from the book for balance issues. It should have been replaced with the Mind Blank spell from the PH with the text: Protect secrets from mind spells and scrying.
