You have a left-handed character? That is something really rare, speaking as someone who's left-handed IRL.
As a left-handed friend of mine use to tell me all the time, "Left handed people are the only ones in their right mind."
But yes, you can see her image here.
I know I am late to the game, but I learned in a very real way just how much representation matters. While paizo has a number of the ethnicities covered with their signature characters, I am learning more can be done. Also, I am noticing the lgbtq community getting some love as well, but there are many other groups not getting anywhere near the love.
I mean our signature changeling is left handed. Overweight persons (such as myself) do not get as much love. But what other groups are not getting represented.
Please tell us what we should include in our art. Reason I am asking now us that we have half the signature characters in for the Book of Heroic Races Advanced Compendium, one more is ordered and we still have 5 to go. Plus we still have other interior art images that need ordered and I want to be as inclusive as possible.
Thank you in advance.
Just a quick recap, downloading the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Compendium (PFRPG) Work-in-Progress PDF gets you:
And that's just what is available so far. There are still 7 more races coming and all the races gathered together when it is all done.
Is "available on d20pfsrd" count as "available to all members of the group"?
Also, have you checked out the unchained summoner? It is substantially more balanced.
OMG Only 7 races?!? Which of my children do I cut?
Classes, this gets easier since I haven't published any classes myself:
Psion Dreamscarred Press
And I am leaving the last one open until I can figure out which core class replacements I am missing.
I'll definitely agree with that. Generally, I've stayed away from non-core book/APG/UM classes. Even base psionics took me a long time to really go, "ok they're cool," mostly because I don't want to have to learn a new system.
The daevic, being a full BAB class, you have an idea what to expect going in (someone that hits stuff and makes them fall down). So the new parts are easier to wrap your head around because you're already looking at it from that angle then from there its just a question of what specifics are you going to choose: are you going to choose the claws over the physical weapon, do you want to hurt your enemies when you take a hit over having the hits hurt so much, etc.
That probably is a decent part of why I like it as much as I do after my first reading.
With Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Merfolk being added to the subscription soon, we wanted to share with you what you can expect in inside. Lets start with the basic racial stats and a pair of alternatives to the traditional merfolk itself.
See the merfolk racial traits as well as two variants: the angufolk and the octopi over at JonBrazer.com
As a matter of fact, more than 1/3rd of the book is already available as PDFs as part of the subscription. After Advanced Merfolk and the following one (Advanced Elans) are published, we'll be more than half way finished with the book.

These aren't new races, but I'd like to see Changelings and their mothers fleshed out a LOT more.
Might I recommend the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Changelings
-A playable Frankenstein's monster-like race.
Would something like the wyrwoods interest you? They are essentially a wood golem construct race that rose up against their creators to win their freedom. They will be available as part of the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Compendium
-A fey blooded race, like a fey version of Aasimar/tiefling.
Might I recommend the Half-Faerie Dragon race from the Book of Heroic Races Compendium.
-plant based races.
Might I recommend the Seedling race from the Book of Heroic Races Compendium.
I'd like to see some bearfolk.
There is the Ursine race in the Book of Heroic Races Compendium that you might enjoy.
My confession: a few months ago, I played a 1e game (actual 1e, not a retroclone) for the first time in like 25 years.
I hated it and was glad that gaming has come such a long way.
Honestly, I think it was more the pregen character that I hated. I was playing a wizard with 1 spell and it wasn't anything like magic missile or shield (I forget what it was). So all I did the whole time was stay in the back and do nothing, waiting for my one opportunity to cast my spell, which I died before I could cast it. I threw out ideas for things to do, no one listened to me since I didn't suggest "kill it with a sword."
But yea, after that, I don't have any interest in playing anything before 3e or a retroclone thereof again. I'm all for playing in settings like Greyhawk updated to modern games, but not the old systems themselves.
So all week long, we are showing off monsters that we created for our PaizoCon adventure, Expedition to Playtest Mountain, using the Pathfinder Unchained rules. Today we are showing off the Armored Veth'thar, a well protected tanks of a monster that can take what your players can dish out. Stop by JonBrazer.com all week for more Unchained Monsters.
Did I miss anything?
Those were the big announcements, yes. I didn't hear anything about the player's companion nor campaign setting lines. Well, we did hear some about inner sea races, but I am blanking on what at the moment. There were announcements about the adventure card game and pathfinder society but I wasn't paying attention during those parts. Obsidian showed off their adventure card game computer/tablet game, which I pay attention to either. There was this trailer for pathfinder online.
Has it been revealed what kind of kineticist(aether, pyro, etc.) the kineticist iconic is?
While I am not going to outright say since it was massively obvious at the art preview showed the kid holding her own against the breath weapon of a [redacted] dragon, I will say the best hint is in the image in this tweet.

Any good Iconic art in the previews?
That's right there was. Occult adventures iconics were in the art preview. Let me just say that everyone's favorite iconic is going to be the kineticist. She rocks. Also, the ... I'm forgetting which one, the one with the spirit companion rocks. There aren't enough elderly iconics and this is downright cool. There's even an overweight iconic. Its the one with Bob the skull.
Basic pictures are in my twitter feed, and probably Wolfgang's as well.
Art preview for what Dale McCoy Jr.?
Upcoming Paizo releases. ;)
Seriously though, I saw some images of monsters from Bestiary 5. I had to go "Awwww" to the [redacted] with the [redacted]. Considering the looks I got, I don't think that was the desired response. I think they were expecting something more like, "OMGWTFBBQ!"
Also got to see images of the big bad in Giantslayer. All I gotta say is "DAMN!!!" And some from Hell's Rebels. I saw a helper [redacted].

He means stuff like this. And rjgrady ain't kidding. I love the stuff that fat goblin does, I just want more of it. I own all but like 2 of them and I want a larger variety. It just isn't enough.

That's incorrect, DMW. Due to a class with 54 spirits taking up a huge chunk of the book's wordcount, the number of spirits was scaled down to 6, which each one representing an embodiment of classic heroic archetypes (small "a") which correspond to the six mythic tiers. Jason stated they promise to find a home for the 54 in a future product!
As Brandon said, the six spirits correspond to mythic tiers. The idea is that you are channeling the spirit of a former mythic hero. But yea, to do all 54 would have eaten up a third of the book.
