I'm happy to announce that an updated PDF is available on DriveThruRPG and should be available here at Paizo now or a little later today.

An updated version of the free errata sheet is available here.

These address many of the things brought up in this thread, although the question about doom of blood merits further investigation. Thanks for pointing it out, Jeff.

Thanks, all!

Ooh, agree with this!

Really love this iconic, by the way. :D Adowyn rocks.

I have to say that I REALLY enjoyed this scenario as a player. The balance between combat and roleplaying was really nice, and the pacing was exciting, particularly at the end (which is EPIC). Great stuff!

Scarab Sages Contributor , Star Voter 2013

Aw man, the combination of Temple of Modren and Gen Con is VERY EXCITING! Can't wait to see it there. :)

Hey guys -- looks like we will get to unleash our questions on Marc over at the worldbuilding subreddit on Thursday!

Per a Kickstarter update, Marc is doing an AMA at 7-8 p.m. EST.

Scarab Sages Contributor , Star Voter 2013

Thanks for the info about Selenthea! Follow up question: Of the new races you're presenting, which are the ones that gravitate most toward arcane casting? Or is everybody kind of on equal footing?

Also, do you have any info about Aetaltis's pantheon that you might be willing to share?

pg. 241 there is a 0-level cantrip called Snowball. There was previuosly published in Paizo's Peoples of the North a 1st-level spell called snowball. Could you maybe rename the cantrip lesser snowball or somesuch.

That's an interesting question. Thanks for bringing it up!

Wolfgang may want to correct me, but I believe Kobold Press's snowball spell originally dates back to 2011 and Northlands, which came out some time before People of the North. Anyway, it's certainly worth considering what to do now that there's a Paizo spell of the same name.

Scarab Sages Contributor , Star Voter 2013

Selenthea sounds really cool. I have a special place in my heart for magocracies. :)

Are the wizard-rulers of Selenthea practitioners of a specific magical school or tradition? Moreover, are they wizards of all races, or are they mostly homogeneous? If so, what's the dominant race among Selenthea's wizards?

Scarab Sages Contributor , Star Voter 2013

Hey, folks! If you're interested in learning more about Aetaltis, Marc has posted lots of cool details about the world's playable races, regions, and lore in this thread.

It also offers details about an opportunity to design a pregen for his Kickstarter project. The winner will be in the company of Ed Greenwood, James Sutter, Dave Gross, Larry Elmore, and many more industry greats who are connected to this project. It's all extremely cool, I think!

Scarab Sages Contributor , Star Voter 2013

Yep, Frayn, they sure should!

Scarab Sages Contributor , Star Voter 2013

I gotta say, folks, the Temple of Modren adventure is really, really cool. It has a very old-school vibe while still staying firmly planted in the PFRPG rules system. I can see this one becoming a classic con adventure very quickly -- and it really whets the appetite for the Aetaltis setting.

Plus, the text-only version is available now for any pledge amount! Can't ask for better bang for your buck.

Seriously, with some of these incredible names lined up to write stories set in Aetaltis (provided the projects meets its stretch goals), this Kickstarter could be the start of something VERY big! Check it out!

You can use repairing touch on an object affected by animate construct as long as that object weighs an amount equal to or less than 1 lb. per your wizard level. So, it just depends on your wizard level and what you're animating. :) Thanks for asking, Oliver!

Scarab Sages Contributor , Star Voter 2013

The spell descriptions will always be correct, Segallion. Thanks for checking!

Just wanted to pop in here to confirm heavy burden and heavy chains are meant to make the targets flat-footed.

Living visage was a spell that we needed to cut during development for space purposes, unfortunately. Reference to it should be booted out of the necrophagy section.

Thanks, RedEric!

Scarab Sages Contributor , Star Voter 2013

Hi, all! Thanks so much for collecting these questions here.

I've posted a response to the question about spellforged sinews in the Deep Magic product discussion, but I'll cross-post it here, too, to be sure everyone sees it.

The clarification: We've conferred about this, and we agree that the spell's wording probably needs to be more precise about its duration.

The spell is meant to provide the indicated bonus on all Strength-based rolls until the end of the caster's next turn. That's also true of spellforged sinews II-IX.

We'll make sure to implement this erratum in a PDF update, which will be coming shortly.

A couple of other clarifications

Black well: Yes, the alternate school is conjuration.

Mountain druid spells: That's a duplication error. All the mountain druid spells should be listed.

The question about steam blast warrants further investigation. Stay tuned ... And thank you for your help!

Wolfgang, I posted this on the Typos thread. However, could we get a clarification please?

"I have a question about a particular spell.

SPELLFORGED SINEWS I
School transmutation; Level cleric/oracle 1, sorcerer/
wizard 1
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range personal
Target you
Duration 1 round
Saving Throw Will negates (harmless); SR yes
(harmless)
A surge of magic makes you stronger. The spell grants
a +2 enhancement bonus to Strength, adding the usual
benefits to melee attack rolls, melee damage rolls, and
other uses of the Strength modifier for one round.

This spell gives a +2 bonus to all attack, damage and other uses of Strength. However, it is a Standard Action to cast it and it only lasts one round.

Is it possible that the Duration listed maybe wrong?
Or is the casting time an immediate or swift action?"

Hi, Charlie! The table you're looking for is on page 354. :) Glad to hear you and your friends like the book!

I think I found another thing. The Speak with Ancestors spell is missing from the druid/shaman list (is it druid/shaman, or shaman only, by the way? The description seems to say "shaman only").

It is druid/shaman. Thank you, Bardess. :)

Hi

There are 7th LEVEL SUMMONER SPELLS!!!! Huh!!?? That is a huge error and I am very surprised and disappointed that such a big mistake was let through. I appreciate mistakes may happen with such a huge book, but this is surely should not happen. In the list of spells under each class it goes upto 7th level and this is put as summoner 7 is the spell description.

Johncolossus, I'd like to just take a moment to apologize for this error. It's entirely on me -- somehow, and I can't exactly explain what happened, but two spells ended up listed as 7th-level summoner spells and two ended up listed as 7th-level bard spells. They should have been listed as 6th-level spells, and somehow I completely missed that before we went to press. I'm very sorry about this.

I'm planning to include the necessary changes to make these spells 6th level in a list I'll send the graphic designer tonight. We will have the PDF updated as soon as humanly (koboldly?) possible.

In the meantime, please treat these incorrectly listed 7th-level spells as 6th-level spells. And thank you for pointing this out so we can get it fixed right away.

I'm slowly going through the book and I have to say it's very very good. However, I did notice something that I think is odd. There might be a perfectly good reason for it and I'm just not thinking of it, but it makes me curious.

The Empyrean Opus has a list of spells it contains. Some of these spells, guardian deva for example, aren't on the spell list of anyone who would prepare a spell from a spellbook. I mean only a wizard or magus uses a spellbook. Why would a spell not on a wizard/magus spell list ever be in a spellbook?

Is the only reason it's there so someone who prepares the spell from the book can get the preparation bonus? I guess that makes sense, it just seems odd to me.

Thanks for the comment and question, Kcinlive! Yes, I think there was some thought in the direction of just allowing for the preparation bonus. In hindsight, though, I think we're going to want to consider placing those applicable spells on the sorcerer/wizard list, at least. It makes a lot of sense to me.

The amount of options presented looks amazing, still just skimmed it quickly and just started the read through.

Noticed two spells on Page 17 that have what looks like a source indicator after it of OP, which wasn't listed in the main notes.

Specifically they are under The Empyrean Opus. Spells are crown of empyreal gloryOP*, and cherub’s burning bladeOP*,

What's the OP for?

That's an indication that those spells are from an oppositional school. In this case, evocation. :)

Pett is one of my favorite authors too -- his adventures and writing are so incredibly creative.

For those of you interested in checking out his "Your Whispering Homunculus" articles at the Kobold Press website, you can find pretty much all of them at this link. He's particular outdone himself with his Feb. 21 article about 100 strange pets.

Owlferret, anyone? :D

Posted something in here, but I just realized it's not a PFS story, so it'll have to wait for another time. :)

I'm really enjoying reading everyone else's stories, though. I will say that my party narrowly (and I mean NARROWLY) avoided a TPK a couple of weeks ago in the Blakros Matrimony, when the BBEG ...

spoiler:

Threw an illusory AOE spell at four out of the six of us. Everyone failed their Will save and all but one PC failed their Reflex. Full damage was, I think, something like 43 hp. I still have no idea how anyone survived that fight (and all but two of us who did were unconscious). I think our GM must have had mercy on us.

My compliments for both the new Demodand which is freaky and awesome at the same time and the Vilsteth Corruption Demon with it's awesome abilities to enter artwork, wallpaintings and other images!

The corruption demon wasn't my handiwork, but I'm glad you liked the stringy demodand, Gancanagh. I ran with a concept that I found freaky and disgusting -- and that would make my own players recoil. Abyssal beasties are so much fun to toss at PCs, after all. :)

OK, I just heard from the Kobold Overlord, and he confirmed that you will receive a notification email from Paizo once the new file is available. In fact, you could receive that email as early as today.

Scarab Sages Contributor , Star Voter 2013

I'm almost certain you'll get an email notifying you that the product file has been updated, but let me get you a confirmed answer.

I'll let you know shortly!

No problem at all! I just saw that the new file has been submitted to Paizo, so it should be available quite soon.

If you're asking me, sure, I'll run whatever works best, though for purely practical reasons I think I'd prefer Ghennett Manor or Glass River over running a portion of Dragon's Demand.

Same here, Jim! I'm pretty sure the art is final, and that really makes the cover for me. Urgathoa and Nethys are two of my favorite Golarion deities, and they just look so cool and intense here.

I'm also a major fan of nontraditional, warrior-angel artwork, so I really like how Sarenrae is shown here, too.

Can't wait to see how the interior art in this book will look!
