Please give me an analysis of this monster and let me know if I made any mistakes kay?
This immense dark furred ape stands up and pounds it's massive chest with it's mighty fists while unleashing a horrific roar.
TYRANT APE (MEGAPRIMATUS) CR 10
Feared throughout the jungle by explorers and worshiped as a god by the natives of some tropical islands, the tyrant ape is a far more dangerous primate than even the dire ape. Known to scholars as megaprimatus, an adult tyrant ape stands 45 feet tall and weighs about 25,000 pounds. The tyrant ape is extremely territorial (even more so than the dire ape) and can claim whole kilometers of jungle as it's domain. Intruders (which include anything not of the tyrant ape's own troop) are attacked without mercy until they are dead or have run off.
Unlike a gorilla or dire ape, a tyrant ape possesses a slight hint of intelligence when it comes to fighting a foe. It will often choose to throw rocks at it's foes from a higher vantage point when possible but it is certainly not afraid to enter melee combat. It's impressive physical strength enable it to stand toe-to-toe with most heavily armored foes. On a few occasions, tyrant apes have even been known to pull off the heads of long neck dinosaurs in order to fight opponents with a rather grisly reach capable weapon (though such weapons usually come apart after a minute or two).
Does anyone remember the old Paizo Publishing website (when they were doing Dragon/Dungeon magazine)? If so, does anyone remember the article on their bulletin which showed them unwrapping some huge packaging to reveal original artwork, scenarios, adventures, and other cool stuff (that someone had apparently sent them)? Does anyone know what happened to that material? Did Paizo ever make use of it? It would seem a god awful shame if it was just thrown away in the dumpster.
Also (and again please don't take this the wrong way) but submitting single archetypes and/or sorcerer bloodlines is apparently hard to accomplish (again at least for me) due to the word count limitations. It's kind of hard to submit a single Sorcerer Bloodline that goes to a minimum of 750 words. Often I don't have more than one bloodline or archetype to submit and while I would bundle them together that would probably only make it even more likely to be rejected due to being "MIXED" and not fitting with the "THEMES" of the issue. Again, I'm sorry if this rubs people the wrong way. It's just I've have these problems with submitting material to this fine fanzine and I'm hoping there are some solutions to these dilemmas of mine.
I mean no offense to the awesome people behind Wayfinder or the awesome people who contribute to it but these "THEMES" that each Wayfinder issue seem to follow are kind a pain in the rear (at least for me). I've submitted material that's kinda mixed and so far it's pretty much been rejected due to not being in tune with the "THEME" of the current Wayfinder. It's kinda annoying me to be honest. Just felt like saying that. Sorry if it ruffled some feathers the wrong way.
The sister was hell bent (hehe) on proving to her mother and the world that she could be good and pure of heart. I was just going to kill (slowly and enjoying every moment) everything that got in my sister's way while she went through he adolescent rebellious stage. Eventually she'd grow up, we'd kill mom, and true power would be ours! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
See, me personally, I would have role played both children as being disgusted by the fact that their mother was a night hag and have them hell bent on slaying her and then becoming monster hunters in order to prevent other foul beings from inflicting harm on their half-breed spawn (like their mother had done to them).

Neat thread idea! You only add half the creatures mythic rank to their initial CR to get the end value; you appear to be adding the entire rank value as a modifier. Mythic ranks are powerful, but not THAT powerful. So, if we're not going above CR 23, you should be able to add everything in the angel category but solars, all the archons, all azatas but the Veranallia, and all agathions but the Draconal.
S%@+, MY BAD.
Sorry about that.
Here's the updated list:
Does Paizo have any plans to release the following material o'James of the Old Ones (?):
An Advanced NPC Codex featuring NPC's with class archetypes as well as Sorcerers with new Bloodlines and Oracles with new mysteries?
An Archetype for the Cavalier class that replaces the Mount and Charging abilities with some sort of Inspirational Tactics ability or such (aka making the Cavalier more of a foot-based Commander and less of a mounted knight)?
An Archetype for the Ninja alternate class that gives the Ninja an animal companion (like a dog or a wolf)?
An Devils Revisited book featuring some half-devil templates (including a possible Half-Erinyes template)?
An Undead Hunter archetype for either the Ranger or Inquisitor that kicks as much undead ass as the Hunter of the Dead prestige class of 3.5 Dungeons and Dragons?
An Draconic Codex which details things like more Dragoncraft items (cloaks, weapons, etc etc) and prestige classes (for humans and dragons), information on Apsu, Dahak, and (if possible) Tiamat, and stats/lair/hoard information for one of each kind of dragon as well as some of the members of dragonkind.
An entirely new type of Dragonkind mirroring the Felldrakes of 3.5 Dungeons and Dragons (aka creations of Apsu to help aid metallic dragons and good-aligned mortals)?
It makes some really compelling statements, like being able to "mature" into a full hag, that aren't really options mechanically. Or just a racial Coven ability, something....
Eh....allowing a changeling to mature into a full-fledged hag would be something I personally wouldn't allow in my campaign. I have enough problems keeping my "good-aligned" players from violating their alignments. Allowing one PC to become a wench from hell would cause nothing but chaos in any of my campaigns (as well as completely drail the campaign itself [which more often or not features the PC's trying to save the world and not wreck it]).
As for the coven idea, um, yeah, still gonna say naw to that. Circle magic I have no problems with but anything that gives a PC of mine an excuse to associate with a Chaotic Evil monster for the purpose of material gain is reason enough for me to ban it.
@Berselius: I approve, I like your new options =)
Awww...your just sayin that. ^_~
BTW...I love your username. It reminds me of a certain Octopus receptionist from a certain great video game. ^_~
LOVE IT. ^_^
This suggestion thread is a think tank for any mythic versions of celestials that have already been published in any bestiary or supplement. I've added the ones that don't go over CR 23 (with the highest possible one being the Cetaceal Agathion).
So, if anyone wants to make a mythic version of a celestial on this list, feel free too. Also, if I screwed up the CR/MR of any of the celestials, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I'm still STRUGGLING to understand most of the mythic rules (as learning anything new is kinda hard for me ^_~).
I made some slight changes to the Changeling race.
Opinions? Suggestions? Pie?
+2 Wisdom, +2 Charisma, –2 Constitution: Changelings are frail, but are clever and comely.

Varian: What do we have Radovan?
Radovan: Well boss, it's a strange one. The victim appears to have died while drinking a vial of holy water.
Varian (puts on sunglasses): Well Radovan, it looks like this murder is absolutely divine!
G'kar (singing while preparing his dinner): I'M THINKING...I'M THINKING OF SEEING HER TONIGHT...JUST AFTER SUPPER IS DONE! I'M THINKING...I'M THINKING OF MAKING IT RIGHT...JUST AFTER SUPPER IS DONE!
(sniffs his leg o'meat and smiles)
G'kar (continuing to sing): SO MANY FISHES...LEFT IN THE SEA! SO MANY FISHES...BUT NONE LEFT FOR ME! I'M THINKING...I'M THINKING OF SEEING HER TONIGHT! JUST AFTER SUPPER IS DONE!

Narn: Would you happen to be ambassador G'kar?
G'kar: THIS IS AMBASSADOR'S G'KAR'S QUARTERS! THIS IS AMBASSADOR'S G'KAR'S TABLE! THIS IS AMBASSADOR G'KAR'S DINNER! What part of this process escapes YOU?
I thought Pennywise was actually an universal force (aka cosmic entity) who acted as the opposing force to "the Turtle".
As I recall, in the movie, Pennywise showed his true form (a floating mass of scintillating colors and light) to one guy who ended up driven insane by seeing it.
As for the whole giant spider thing, I believe it was just another form the "entity" (aka Pennywise) could take in order to do what it loved to do best (aka kill people who were frightened before they die).
As for the "The Blob", I believe we have that in one of the monster manuals (CR 12 or 13 I believe).
I had a HUGE amount of free time with not a single soul to spend it with so I decided to spend it making a rather incomplete list of outsiders you can summon via the Summon Monster series of spells. I hope to god in heaven I got the challenge ratings right as according to levels. If not, well, I'm just to plain tired to care. If anyone wants to add, change, or modify this feel free too. I'm gonna go fall unconscious for the next 8 hours.
Summon Monster III (CR 1 - CR 2)
Summon Monster IV (CR 3 - CR 4)
Summon Monster V (CR 5 - CR 6)
Summon Monster VI (CR 7 - CR 8)
Summon Monster VII (CR 9 - CR 10)
Summon Monster VIII (CR 11 - CR 12)
Summon Monster IX (CR 13 - CR 14)
Not gonna lie, I'd like to see some of the following in Bestiary 5:
Abraxus (Demon Lord)
Also, while I'm not super big on Aeons, I think some new Proteans are in order or am I wrong on that?
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Seelah's story moves me to tears. She's perfect Paladin material; carrying some guilt and remorse for past actions but dedicated and devoted to bettering herself as well as the world! I hope we see Seelah's Mythic stats soon! ^_^
Oh, and the city of Solku looks pretty awesome! Does it get a fair amount of trade or does Katapesh steal all of it's possible wealth? As for Katapesh, one wonders why a mythic blue dragon hasn't been DRAWN to it's MASSIVE OBSESSION for obtaining wealth (and subsequently RAZED the whole city to the ground)!
They took her in before the rest of them died, that's how I read it.
Either that or it was just the ones who were OUTSIDE the city walls who died (the ones inside the city helping to keep the gnolls out might have been the survivors). Either way, Seelah's story moves me to tears. To have such strength of conscience that she was wracked by such an enormous amount of guilt to willingly want to join Acemi in death in order to make up for what happened. How could the Iomedaeians NOT TAKE HER IN?
Also, it shouldn't be surprising that Paizo dropped references to atomic energy, considering that most fantasy RPG worlds would have no concept of atomic power. ;-)
Pathfinder RPG has giant scorpion robots with tails equipped with plasma lance weapons dude. I think they can manage naming Mogaru's breath weapon abilities "Thermonuclear Breath" and "Thermonuclear Pulse"! Also, brown scales? AND FRILLS? BRIGHT RED FRILLS? (hits head on desk repeatedly) WHY PAIZO? WHY? WHY? WHY?
RED ENERGY? BAH! Paizo must have elected to go with the new Godzilla's powered up breath weapon instead of his classic blue atomic breath weapon. Does Mogaru at least have an ability like Godzilla's "Atomic Pulse" (aka blasting everything around him with fiery force death)? Also, what color is he? If he's not covered in black scales I'm gonna RAGE SO HARD!
Darn, here I was counting on him possessing an aura-based ability that would allow him to force everyone around him to save every round or be dimension door'ed DIRECTLY INTO HIS STOMACH (and then begin to take MASSIVE amounts of damage and/or save every round or else be digested)!
Perhaps this then (?):
Dragon [Chromatic], Brown (Fire-breathing desert dwelling dragons who often come into conflict with brass, copper, blue, and yellow dragons)
Dragon [Chromatic], Gray (Also known as fang dragons, these electricity-breathing chromatics are just as feral as the whites but no less dangerous)
Dragon [Chromatic], Orange (These jungle-dwelling acid-breathing chromatics are just as spiteful and unsociable as the blacks)
Dragon [Chromatic], Purple (Dwelling almost exclusively in the darklands, these cold-breathing chromatics desire power and control above all else)
Dragon [Chromatic], Yellow (Acid-breathing dragons dwelling in craggy wastelands, they hate copper dragons and are nortorious liars and deceivers)
Dragon [Metallic], Cobalt (These ice-breathing metallics dwell in the frozen north and often take entire communities under their wing in order to make them strong)
Dragon [Metallic], Iron (These electricity-breathing metallics fashion themselves the ultimate hunters of evil and love nothing more than to stalk a fiend for days then slay it)
Dragon [Metallic], Mercury (These fire-breathing metallics value knowledge above all else and desire to folster learning and the spread to lore throughout the world)
Dragon [Metallic], Orium (These acid-breathing metallics often dwell in ancient ruins and seek to protect the future by preserving the past; preventing intruders from plundering and debasing their forgotten homes)
Dragon [Metallic], Steel (Often refered to as song dragons, these acid-breathing metallics love to dwell in humanoid-communities and have a fondness for humanoid food)
Just some ideas for ya but don't get me wrong, 10 chromatics and 10 metallics are enough for me.
Angel [Primal], Ariel (Angels infused with the elemental power of earth, sworn enemies of the elemental lord Ayrzul, and ally of good-aligned races that dwell beneath the earth)
Angel [Primal], Cherub (Angels infused with the elemental power of air, sworn enemies of the elemental lord Hshurha, and staunch allies of the Djinni)
Angel [Primal], Tharsis (Angels infused with the elemental power of water, sworn enemies of the elemental lord Kelizandri, and devoted protectors of good-aligned aquatic races)
Angel [Primal], Seraph (Angels infused with the elemental power of fire and sworn the enemies of the efreeti and the elemental lord Ymeri)
Angel [Primal], Azrael (Mightiest of the primal angels, they are infused with the power of shadow and darkness and wage a constant battle against the nightshades and kytons)
Agathion, Loxonal (Elephant-like agathion who are second only to the mighty Draconals and are the most militaristic of all agathions)
Archon, Monarch (Regal humanoid archons clad in golden armor, wielding vorpal greatswords, and typically seated on ornate thrones which can access the archon's spells and spell-like abilities and fight foes on it's own)
Devil, Lust [Luxurigon] (Infernal version of the succubus devoted to corrupting the minds, bodies, and souls of mortals through debased pleasure and unmitigated lust)
Ape, Tyrant [Megaprimatus] (Huge-sized primate that rules unopposed throughout it's jungle domain and is sometimes worshiped as a god by jungle and island natives)
Lycanthrope, Werecrow (Lycanthropes who possess the ability to take the form of crows but also summon crows as well however, they have a unique vulnerability to gold in addition to silver)
Lycanthrope, Weresaurian (Exceedingly rare but dangerous lycanthropes capable of taking the form of carnivorous dinosaurs, it is widely believed they are slowly being driven to extinction)
Lycanthrope, Wereskunks (Lycanthropes capable of taking the form of skunks and as such are capable of expelling a noxious cloud of foul-smelling vapor)
Golem, Gemstone (Golems made of precious and semi-precious gemstones that possess the ability to use a burst-like prismatic spray ability)
Vampire, Strigoi (A vampiric bloodline that lacks energy draining slams but possesses the ability to dominate victims through blood drain as well as potent moon-based regenerative powers)
Yup, good job Paizo Publishing! I hope to see the following in the coming months or year:
A Cavalier Archetype that replaces the Mount and mount-based abilities with stuff like battle coordination and improving the abilities of your allies even more than normal.
One or two more Cavalier Orders (like one focused on hunting undead [Order of the Shroud anyone?] or an order focusing on seamanship and defending aquatic or coastal communities [Order of the Trident perhaps?]).
An Undead Hunting Archetype that is a hell of alot better than the puny Vampire Hunter Inquisitor Archetype!
A Ninja Archetype that gives the player an Animal Companion (like the Druid) [for the Final Fantasy VI Shadow/Interceptor lovers in all of us).
And last but not least: some racial-based mythic powers! Especially for the uncommon and rare races.
Is it possible to be a Werewolf (either natural or afflicted) and be good in alignment?
Will we be seeing racial mythic powers?
Is there any plans for a Metamagic feat that would allow a spell that deals a specific kind of energy damage to deal half damage to creatures with immunity to that kind of energy?
Will we be seeing either new artwork or an updated stat block of Thais (aka Cayden's "Accidental Herald") in the upcoming manual about the gods of Golarion?
Assuming a group of SIX adventures were all 20th level, had their ability scores built via 25 point build, and possessed gear equivalent to 20th level heroic characters, what would be the MAXIMUM challenge rating a DM should throw at them?
How would the class level part of the stat block of a chaotic neutral human 20th level cavalier with 10 mythic tiers look like if he has selected the dual mythic path feat (and thus has Champion and Marshal as his Mythic paths)?
Will the famous paladin (aka Elicia Stormraven) and the famous red dragon (aka Metterak the Dragon Prince) who both were played in Gencon 2011 ever make official appearances in Golarion?
Any fans planning on making some changes to this adventure path once it comes out in full? I'm planning on making the following changes for my players when we take up this adventure path:
Changes to Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path:
Changes to the Worldwound Incursion:
Changes to the Sword of Valor:
Of course that's just a basic rundown of the most basic changes I'll be making (I'll of course be making a hell of a lot more but I don't wanna list them all here). What about you guys and gals? Any changes you think you'll be making? If so, feel free to list them here kay?
I agree with you 100% my fine fellow.
Heh, yeah, VERY satisfied! One of my players wanted to be a Rogue (Burgler)/Ranger (based loosely off of Shadow from Final Fantasy VI) and as a long time fan of that game it broke my heart to say he'd have to wait until 16th level in order for his precious Interceptor to become medium in size (and thus able to "eat people")!
I don't suppose Animal Archive has rules on types of dog breeds does it? I'm curious cause I'm a HUGE lover of rough collies and unfortunately I don't have the book.
Keep in mind lycanthropes can wear silver at no mind, so all it means is that you can beat someone to death with a piece of mithral easier than you could out of cold iron or mundane implements.
When it comes to Lycanthropes using items that reek of silver, I'd personally say they'd be loathe to wear mithral or use any sort of item made of silver (if for nothing else than to prevent irritating itching or rashes to due minor allergic reaction) but yeah, rule wise, they can use such items (at least as far as I know).
Does anyone know if anyone has converted the following spells to Pathfinder format/rules:
Acid Breath (3.5 Spell Compendium)
Acid Rain (Dungeons and Dragons Online)
Avalanche (3.5 Spell Compendium)
Chain Contingency (3.0 Tome and Blood)
Force Missiles (3.5 Spell Compendium)
Frost Breath (3.5 Spell Compendium)
Icelance (Dungeons and Dragons Online)
Niac's Cold Ray (Dungeons and Dragons Online)
Protection from Elements (Dungeons and Dragons Online)
Sound Lance (3.5 Spell Compendium)
Personally I think there should be a feat that allows a Ranger's Animal Companion to progress like a Druid's, Cavalier's, or a Paladin's. The whole "equal to the Ranger's level -3" seems a bit, er, LIMITING, if you catch my drift (especially considering the Paladin or Cavalier does not share the same drawback).
Doesn't a god need a portfolio though to reign over? Having domains available doesn't sound like it would be enough too me. You'd have to claim a part of what makes up the life of mortals (or Golarion as a whole). Though it does appear some gods can share the same distinct aspect (such as love, death, etc etc).
Meh, this problem doesn't surprise me. I've had a chance to look at the demonic obedience, and a lot of them were pretty insane logistically (forget morals, although that does complicate logistics with things like human sacrifice).
It makes me wonder if we need a bit of a turnaround to a simpler, less complicated, Pathfinder system (at least one that's workable for players when it comes to Celestial and Fiendish obedience).
Does anyone else think the listed methods to permanently destroy vampires are way to much of a pain in the butt? I mean, having to reach it's coffin before it can bring itself back to above 0 HP can be a real pain (both for the PC's and the campaign's DM if the DM isn't careful and doesn't have maps planned ahead of time).
Am I wrong to think it wouldn't be unreasonable to simply house rule that if you bring a vampire to 0 HP via fire, silver, wood, and holy weapons or spells that the vampire would simply be reduced to burnt ash (aka like the vampires in the Blade movies) and would be otherwise destroyed?
I'm not saying that their couldn't be some Vampiric Bloodlines that could rise again (like if the ashes were touched by moonlight or some sort of necromantic blood ritual was conducted on them) but as it stands I just think it's kinda hard to simply add a vampire into a campaign on the spur of the moment (especially when permanently destroying it involves finding it's coffin within a limited amount of time).
