I haven't heard any updates on that.

Slight correction.

The Hybridization Funnel from Ultimate Equipment lets you do the second one.

Just be aware that it's not a system like the Race Builder, and it's most likely more like the Create A Spell chapter of Ultimate Magic!

Which to me implies shaman.

Hope they got their own spell list though.

Are fey actually known for modifying base animals? They used them (fey riding corgis), for sure.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

yea, I'm pretty sure I've heard that one of the iconics was trans.

The package system could also be a "pick from this list" thing, or have the packages and the combat style for extra evolution...course, I feel that there's plenty of customization for this class as is. You got bonus feats, spells, magic powers, an animal companion...


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Aww, it ate my post.

OK, I haven't read the new version yet (post my comments), but after reading some of these comments, I think you guys may have been right about me missing the mark a bit w.r.t. mediocre class features. I was sleepy, and since I was asked to comment, I wanted to make sure I wrote my comments before going to bed. I do appreciate my concerns being taken seriously (but the whole praise thing is always weird, no matter who does it :)).

Basing it off the Paladin / Inquisitor makes sense for what I'm seeing in the class, because you guys are right: they only have a few non-great class abilities. (Which is why I think the Paladin is a tad too strong, but that's a different topic.)

I still feel that the abilities are a bit too good. There's something to be said about being the master of your element, but the level at which these guys are the masters in forests is a bit...high? I guess forests aren't too common, but at the same time, it kind of suffers from the problem that the Undine bard archetype has: people wouldn't be taking it unless the forest / water plays a large role in the campaign. Too many good abilities are tied up into it. Something to consider.

The evolution points still make me uneasy. Especially since it's going to be used to grab pounce for animal companions that don't have pounce (and probably shouldn't have pounce!).

One idea, and here's that constructive feedback finally coming in, is to instead of give evolution points, give packages of evolutions at X,Y,Z,A, and B levels. These packages could be based on the fey that the feywarden most identifies with. That way you could balance your own fey-packages (the F.Beast of the feywarden who identifies with a brownie would get evolutions J,K, and L.). You could then tie other abilities into that fey package, as a sort of bloodline.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Which class(s) are you comparing this one to for balance purposes?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The number of people signing up to join the goblin squad that might kill me is a bit high for my liking...


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

haven't said this in a while...Praise is great, but criticism is useful. Nothing personal!

I'm not a huge fan of just how versatile Wild Hunt Combat Style is. It's 4 abilities in one. It combines the best parts of the archery style (Imp Precise Shot at level 6), a really nice teamwork feat sharing ability, extra evolution points (I was OK with this at first since I thought they didn't get them normally...nope.), and then some really really nice abilities. It just feels like too many good options.

Sapling shot...not sure how I feel about this one. It's really cool and an extremely visual ability, but it's damage (minor, I know), debuffing, control, and terrain manipulation all in one ability. Just the ability to make a tree where you want, so there's suddenly cover, would be sufficiently useful, I feel.

I still feel that fey foundling was just a bad idea for a feat, but at least you can't swift action Fey Foundling yourself. Fey Fondling? I like that name. But I don't like the idea of getting 1d6+2 / 2 levels healing.

Woodsman is icing on an already good cake. And it's butter cream icing, made by a cake master.

Quote:

Firstly, the feywarden's faerie beast shares the following class features with him: it gains half

his skill bonuses from his woodsman class feature whenever in forest or jungle terrain. It also

gains access to seeming, wild stride, elision and timeless body; all of these only function

when the faerie beast is within 1 mile per class level of the feywarden, and only while in

forest or jungle terrain. The feywarden must touch his faerie beast and expend uses of his

This is poorly worded, and should be changed. As it stands, the faerie beast gets everything at once. And is very powerful anyhow.

Quote:

The faerie beast treats the feywarden's spelltricks, but not any of his other

spell-like abilities, as "spells from a class that grants an animal companion" for the purposes

of its share spells ability.

Great job catching this corner case.

These guys are mounted archers, but...I see nothing but some bonus feats to point in that direction.

Seeming: I kinda of get why, but...why?

Elision is really, really good. Specifically the Will saves part.

I love the idea of this class. We did something similar in a book I developed, except it was a cavalier archetype. The extension to mounted archer to further tie in the links to fey is a wonderful idea.

But the only half-way mediocre ability this class gets is Wild Empathy. Everything else is amazing for its niche, unlike most classes. Most classes will have their good abilities (Bane, Weapon Training, Bombs) and then a bunch of mediocre to ... not very good... abilities (track, bravery, poison resistance). But this guy gets amazing everything.

I usually try to give some constructive feedback as well, but I'm not sure where to even start on this one. I feel that you're overvaluing the "balance cost" of not getting a real damaging class feature. Damage isn't an issue for an archer anyways, so they barely even need such an ability. At first, I was against using full BAB, but I think it's necessary for this guy, if only because archery at 3/4ths BAB needs some to-hit boost.

If anything else comes to mind, I'll share.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

That's the plan!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I certainly hope it has archetypes, otherwise I'm not sure I'd get paid!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Is that Goodfellow 2.0?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'm half way through reading the class...and it's extremely powerful. Maybe the later revisions tone it down a notch, but it seems like the best aspects of many classes all combined into one!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Huh. This is the first new-race book that honestly interests me.

I'm intrigued.

If you decide to look elsewhere for such a class - Cheapy has worked hard to put together a huge list of all the various artificer/machinist classes out there.

He may provide a link if asked nicely! :D

That said, it's a pretty good take on the concept. My post was just to say that it probably won't cause balance issues, not to discourage you.

The nice thing about "traditional" fantasy is that there are 40 years of material for it. For more adventurous stuff like Paizo has been doing?

Not quite such a long pedigree there.

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.

Come on now, gents. This wouldn't be a Mikazemas without two Cerulean Seas base setting PDFs by the wonderful Alluria Press to the next two posters who ask for them :-)

And to be fair, the "old way" also meant that the cavalier would need some serious rule changes.

That, of course, brings us to the question of whether or not you are considered charging when making a mounted charge. After much discussion, some gnashing of teeth, and combing through the various rules bits involving mounted combat, we have decided to clarify that section of the Core Rulebook to state that when you charge on horseback you do so as a full-round action, and both you and your mount are considered charging.

There will be an official FAQ of that change to that clarification of mounted charge in the near future posted by the Design Team.

Also, keep in mind that while the design and development team does enjoy to interact with all of you, and even give our feedback to rules issues, off-the hip (and after hours) rules discussion by the staff should not be taken as an FAQ or errata for the game as a whole. If you are using random posts to justify your build in Pathfinder Society or as a player in other games…you really should cut that out. Just a bit of friendly advice from this designer.

But I've worked so hard...:(

Rogue Eidolon wrote:
Thanks Stephen! However, he's talking about a literalist interpretation of charging on a mount where the rider is not considered to be taking the charge action so maybe is taking an attack action. It's based off Sean's FAQ on pounce with mounted lance (Sean ruled that the rider does not count as charging for the purposes of pouncing).
Could you point me to that FAQ? I'm having a hard time finding the one you are talking about. It's not in the Bestiary pounce section.

Not sure if anyone's linked you it yet, but it's from this messageboard post.

I personally wasn't a fan of that explanation, since it seems that a lot of the cavalier abilities are written assuming the cavalier is the one charging (almost as if he is replacing his move speed with the mount's). But I'm a fan of FAQs in general, so even if it's just reaffirming what Sean said, I vote go for it :)
