Paizo Releases Blood of the Ancients for Pathfinder

Where you come from can tell you a lot about where you're going. While certainly not beholden to any particular genealogical path, one's bloodline can certainly have an effect on your current life. In Blood of the Ancients, that is even more evident. The new book for Pathfinder from Paizo, it gives players a chance to fully tap into their ancient lineage and gives players and GMs more options at the gaming table.

From the announcement:

New from Paizo: Breathe life into lost cultures with character options that trace their origins back to ancient times, or pay homage to a distant ancestry with one of the archetypes presented in Pathfinder Player Companion: Blood of the Ancients!

Inside this book you'll find:

The vestige bloodline, which allows both bloodragers and sorcerers the power to not only glimpse into the past but also summon long-dead ancestors and forgotten cities and battlefields into the present day.
New archetypes, from the ancient Azlanti ioun kineticists and the Spawn slayers of Ninshabur to the golem-forged Jistkan artificers and the Heaven-mandated jinyiwei investigators of Lung Wa.
New spells recovered from ancient cultures, including mystic runes from Shory, life-preserving magic from the Mierani arcane wardens, and spells believed to have been used by the founder of Jistka himself.
