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.

Hey Everyone,

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.

No alignments. OK, alignments with any mechanical aspects at all. No smite evil, no order's wrath, no alignment-based DR. Nothing. Sure all devils are LE and so on, but alignment does not help or hinder you one way or another.

Just a quick recap, downloading the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Compendium (PFRPG) Work-in-Progress PDF gets you:

  • Advanced Favored Class Options
  • Advanced Tengu
  • Advanced Catfolk
  • Advanced Changeling
  • Advanced Wyvaran
  • Advanced Merfolk

    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.

    With Approval

  • Other 3rd Party Material: Any 3rd party product must be available to all members of the group.

    Not Accepted

  • No summoners
  • 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.

    Wahoo! Thanks Liz.

    Classes, this gets easier since I haven't published any classes myself:

    Psion Dreamscarred Press
    Psychic Warrior Dreamscarred Press
    Soulknife Dreamscarred Press
    Wilder Dreamscarred Press
    Malefactor TPK Games
    Shaman RGG
    Time Thief RGG

    Gadgeteer Interjection Games
    Priest Flaming Crab Games
    Luckbringer Rite Publishing

    And I am leaving the last one open until I can figure out which core class replacements I am missing.

    I think one of the biggest things is that ... it tells you what it's suppose to be.

    It's also more easy to manage the akashic "fiddly bits" since you're working with a smaller essence pool and dedicating half of that (most likely) to your Passion.

    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.

    I'm not sure why, but the Daevic is my favorite so far.

    *has playful tone to voice* Suggest? I'm not suggesting anything. I'm confirming there will be the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Compendium, which you can subscribe to right here.

    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.

    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.

    Stick to the Pathfinder Compatible area there. Without the PFS only players, the area is considerably smaller.

    Just saying.

    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.

    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.

    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].

    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.
