Which to me implies shaman.

Hope they got their own spell list though.

I heard that there'll be a module where the only feats any NPC has are ones that are horrifically overpowered. Finally, a module for the hardcore optimizers in your group!

For those of you not aware (which is probably all of you), Owen K.C. Stephens, the tongue-in-cheekly self-titled "wide girthed god of d20 design", has joined Paizo as the developer for the 64 page module line. And no. This is not the position Sean vacated.

Welcome!

The tastes of gamers have changed over time: they are not stagnate. This is good. It means more innovation. More tools for interesting stories. More potential stories. I had a game a shadowrun the other month that we couldn't tell in Pathfinder. It relies on just too many "tools" that aren't in Pathfinder. I suspect they're going to be in this book, but even then, if you aren't playing in Numeria, you wouldn't be able to tell the stories anyhow, without making rules up.

I myself have 0 interest in Asian themed content. It doesn't hold any interest to me. But I'm glad it's in the game, so that the people who want to have an entire continent of oriental themed nations are given the tools they desire.

And this is just a nation, not a continent.

BTW Mark and James, something like RFID tags and the ability to activate items when they come in proximity of those tags would be really nice.

In the end we do realize that this allows a mounted barbarian with the Greater Beast Totem rage power to use pounce at the end of a charge, but if she is using a lance, has Spirited Charge, or is using both the multiplier is only applied to the first attack if that attack hits.

Are there any plans to possibly restrict Greater Beast Totem's pounce to be for natural weapons only? It would certainly be more thematic with the totem's spirit.

For sure. Keep in mind a few things too:

Your skin needs to be thick. Really thick. You'll be dealing with these forums, after all. Think about that for a second.

one of Sean's jobs was to be freelancer wrangler. I'm not sure if that'll fall to Stephen or the new guy, but this would include keeping track of the freelancers to use and their individual strengths, who is assigned to what, who wrote what (for archival purposes), etc. Lots of administrative stuff.

You'd be doing a lot of development, which is taking the work of others and massaging it into the vision of the design team. I'm not sure how much designing Sean did.

Long hours. If you have kids, think about that.

It's not all sunshine and nerfing martials :-)

But if you're up to the challenge, go for it! We all want the best for the Game, and a diverse group of applicants will ensure that!

Also, as another word of encouragement, I'm not applying for the position, so you all have a chance.

Fairwell, Sean. Thanks for all the help.

I am reminded of the scene in Dead Poet's Society where Keating is leaving the room for the last time. "Oh Captain, my captain."

Out of curiosity, any reason you're not selling these products on Paizo.com? I'd have thought the more ways to buy it the better.
I'd like to know this too, seeing as how the Compatibility License requires that we have a copy on file! Also, because I like selling third-party products here. :D

I know that DriveThruRPG gives a higher cut if you sell exclusively on OBS (well, last I heard at least). And there are apparently thousands more products for PF on there than there are on this site. Which is a bit weird, but see the previous sentence.

You need an option for "they are unsalvageable in the game as it currently exists and should be replaced with something built from the ground up".

I see statements like this and just laugh. The amount of hyperbole around these "discussions" is just absurd. "Unsalvageable"? Really?

Thousands upon thousands of players have played the fighter class and enjoyed it immensely, all while contributing quite a lot to the campaign.

Hyperbole never helps anyone in making a case, especially if they're trying to get change to happen.

The goal of Path of War has never been to change or supplant the Core Rulebook - if we did such a project we'd be very much upfront about it. Balancing has been done against classes such as the Paladin and the Bard from the Core, and the Magus, Inquisitor and Cavalier from the expansions.

But that's what the designers have stated as the goal. At one point a few hundred posts back, they said they weren't comparing to fighter or rogue. That's powercreep. Prince was talking during the ACG playtest about how if a martial character can't solo a dragon, "or capable of heroic action" as he put it, they were too weak, and that the current non-magical martial classes can't do this. This is not the viewpoint of someone who is trying to not introduce creep.

Endz acknowledged it in his review. It's the impression you get from reading through all these posts. There seems to be a disconnect here between the aims of DSP and what's happening. DSP states they aren't going for creep compared to Core, designers actions and statements show they are. DSP states it's a book for PF, designers won't even state they aren't 3.5 players and are instead PF players (and one opened up his introduction by saying he has many issues with PF!).

Despite our disagreements on some issues, these guys are talented designers, but as an outsider looking in, there seems to be a communication problem going on.

Poisons are alchemical items for the purposes of Alchemist class abilities. The implication here is that for non alchemists, that is not the case.

I'm in favor of whatever makes Michael do the most work, so lets scrap the Daevic. :p

I guess my main concern about ditching Incarna in place of just essence, binds, and veils is that it becomes a straightjacket. It changes from veils and binds being a way to use Incarnum to being the way, potentially making future classes or archetypes limited in their thematic characterization.

Or opening the possibility of an Unbound prestige class, I guess.

Yep. UC errata.

It kinda snuck in under the radar with the Crane Wing debacle taking center stage, but it seems the dev team thought Wild Rager needed a nerf...for some reason.

It's almost as if it was a mistake in the first place to not have a standardized saving throw, like 99% of other abilities out there.

Nah, that's too far-fetched. They just wanted to nerf it.

Well, this wasn't quite the best way to wake up in the morning, but it definitely jolted the drowsiness out of me.

Farewell, Sean. You and your willingness to post on the forums were one of the reasons I got so interested in the rules of the game, and why I started to keep my list to help others. I figured you couldn't be around to help everyone, so may as well point people in the right direction. Up there with Owen K.C. Stephens, you were one of my heroes of d20 that I wanted to meet and work with. I'm glad that before you left, I was able to accomplish both of those goals (although I still need to track down Owen....slippery fellow.)

Best of luck, and I'm sure we'll still see you around!

I'm sitting here looking at my desktop's background of S.H.O.D.A.N. and reading Christopher's post and the question of what would happen if Cosmo and S.H.O.D.A.N. merged popped into my head.

I'm not sure if anything would change.

As any good adventurer PC knows, you sometimes need to be assertive and do the right thing before being asked to do it.

So bring your own booth and set it up! Maybe they'll be too busy to notice.

I was once paid ~500$ for writing a 1,200 word article about Bushido Blade. And that was easy compared to the number crunching, rules digging, build scumming I did for this.

If this isn't a labor of free love I don't know what is.

Of course it's a labor of love! And you shouldn't name Labors of Love "Buttfart McSlimeface" :)
