Oh really?

Yes. I entered the last round of edits to the races themselves last night. I'm working on the introduction now. It won't be long. Its covering:

  • Catfolk
  • Hagborn (Pathfinder changelings, but since Eberron has a shapeshifting race called changelings, we had to come up with a new name)
  • Samsarans
  • Tengus
  • 7 (IIRC) new subraces for core book races. Subraces like cloud dwarves, ghost elves, wiseheart halflings, and river gnomes.

I personally hope not. I am very happy with the amount of options available with the core game.

You and I differ here. I have been bored with the core book options since the launch of 3.0. Elves, dwarves, fighters, wizards, etc have never been my thing. (Although I typically play wizards when I must play a core book class simply because I can come up with a list of spells few have seen before and that makes it interesting for me.) Once Pathfinder released the APG, I haven't touched a core book class since. Heck, I thought Pathfinder took FOREVER to release the Advanced Race Guide.

This does explain why my company has been so big into the Book of Heroic Race Series and why next month we're releasing our first 5e release in that series.

Nope. These are all the classic monsters: orcs, goblins, kobolds, bugbears, vampires, ghouls, etc.

Scratch For Sunlight. Gasp For Air.

The brave and the foolhardy flock to the dwarven village of Granitetop Mountain to make their fortunes escorting caravans and clearing mineshafts of monsters. When a cave-in pulls your adventurers into a massive fissure and strands them deep beneath the mountain’s surface with no obvious egress, they must use all of their wits and cunning to make it out alive. But survival is the only law in this deep and untamed wilderness, and adventurers are just as good as the next meal to the creatures that dwell in the darkness. Will the adventurers ever breathe the fresh air of the surface again—or will their lives be forfeit in these dangerous, maddening depths?

To Claw the Surface is an exciting adventure module in Jon Brazer Enterprises’ Deadly Delves series, and is compatible with the best-selling Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. This adventure is designed to challenge four to five 1st-level PCs like no other content has to date. Inside this 57-page volume, you’ll find:

  • 11 new and modified monsters, 6 fully-statted NPCs, 11 new traps, and 2 new haunts for your Pathfinder campaign
  • 11 full-color maps of the various passageways and forgotten structures buried deep under the mountain
  • 20 new alchemical items, 3 new materials from which to make weapons and armor, 2 new pieces of equipment, a new intelligent item, and a new cursed item
  • Innovative encounters with the denizens of the deeps, including crazed derro, cruel duergar, hungry vermin, malformed giants, primeval dwarves, and vengeful haunts
  • Enough content to take your group of 1st-level PCs all the way to 4th level

Dangers Unknown. Treasures Untold. Adventure Awaits.

- Book of Beasts: Monsters of the River Kingdoms & Monsters of the Shadow Plane by Jon Brazer Enterprises

Thank you for mentioning these. The Book of Beasts: Monsters of the Shadow Plane would be my recommendation to the OP. These are all monsters that are corrupted by darkness and and hide in the shadows of reality. I think these work well in your game.

All week long we are doing previews for the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Samsarans, which is included with the Advanced Compendium subscription. We started our previews off with the Samsaran Racial Traits. These are the basic racial you need to play a samsaran right away. We hope you enjoy the race.

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

Yesterday we showed off one of the archetypes in Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Samsarans. Be sure to check out the Timeless Warden, a samsaran that gives up reincarnating again into a new life and instead lives on to defend the wilderness.

Dreams of the Past Hold the Keys to the Future

To be a samsaran is to forge a new destiny from the sum of your experiences. Born endlessly into new lives, a samsaran reincarnates time and again until achieving enlightenment. They remember the pain and joy of their experiences only through their dreams, recalling random shards of lifetimes long gone.

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Samsarans gives you everything you need to play a samsaran character. This 22-page supplement features:

  • Standard Racial Traits for playing a samsaran, 3 character traits and 6 alternate racial traits to customize your character for this unique play experience
  • 6 New Character Class Options including 3 new archetypes, a new sorcerer bloodline, a new oracle mystery, and a new cleric subdomain
  • 6 New Feats granting you a greater connection to your past lives
  • 5 New Samsaran-Themed Spells
  • 3 New Magic Items
  • A New Deity, the deity of dreams and hidden knowledge that reveals clarity in times of uncertainty
  • Details on samsarans adventurers, as well as suggestions on how to incorporate this race and its unique ties to the past into your campaign or world

Jon Brazer Enterprises has four excellent adventures for Pathfinder.

Doom of the Sky Sword, a level 1 adventure
Rescue from Tyrkaven, a level 2 adventure
Reign of Ruin, a level 7 adventure
Quests of the Sands, several Egyptian-themed adventures.

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

Something I realized over the weekend: paizo hasn't really had an undead-themed AP yet. Yes, there was carrion crown, but 3 of the adventures didn't have anything to do with undead and the first one was more or less kind of loosely undead based. Haunts are essentially traps that you have to do some kind of story-based action to get rid of them.

The second was about frankenstein's monster and other golems. The third was all werewolves, all the time. The forth was lovecraftian monster. We don't really hit a genuine undead theme until book 5 with vampires and book 6 is liches.

There were a few zombie scenes, but no wights, ghouls, ghasts, etc. It was a classic horror themed AP, not an undead one. Heck, IIRC, we don't actually meet anyone from the cult itself until like the end of adventure 3.

Just something I noticed.

Question for Official Rules Clarification: I have 4 author credits but 0 design credits with Paizo. The rules say those with 3 or more design credits are ineligible. Do author credits count as design credits for ineligibility?

I just finished talking with the author. Regenerating Focus is going to be changed to:

1/day you can spend your psionic focus and gain PP equal to half your character level (minimum 1).

My editor and I will work on the wording, but its going to end up meaning the above.

1). Eidetic basic trait, should grant +2 trait bonus to Autohypnosis checks, it's listed as a racial bonus.

Whoops. I'll get that fixed.

RCM wrote:
2). The Prodigy; list Deception & Innuendo as subdomains, neither of which are not associated with the listed domains. The Prodigy is also listed has having both the Psionic and Psychic domains, does she gain both.

Psychic Domain. The listing of the Psionic domain is my screw up. The Prodogy gains the Psychic domain.

RCM wrote:
3). Page 17 the Elan oracle (lv. 6) is listed with a manifester level of 6 for the power she gained from the Access Psionic Talent and the Unlocked Talent. Normally the manifester level these would be either 1 or that of the manifester level of the psionic class that a character has levels in. But with out levels in a psionic class I'm assuming you are taking liberties with the transparency rules and using her caster levels instead?

We should spell it out that the inner flame oracle's caster level counts as his manifestor level when you gain the Unlocked Talent feat.

RCM wrote:
4). Regenerating Focus page 7, was this meant to be used with the possibility to allow a character fully recover all of a characters power points.

I'll talk with the author about putting a limit on that.

Thank you for pointing these out.

Aw, shucks! Thanks guys. :D

Besides the fact that we didn't want to avoid parallel design (which we did by taking the race in a different direction, which you can tell from our artwork), I also picked it up because I wanted to see your design first hand. Which you must say you is quite good. A fellow excellent East Coast designer.

I'll readily admit that I am not familiar with every other pathfinder compatible product out there. Having said that I do do research and encourage my authors to research what others have done on a similar topic.

For example,Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Samsarans comes out next month. Both myself and one of the principle authors on the book made sure to read Everyman Game's Samsarans book.

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

Most of Jon Brazer Enterprises' stuff is GM oriented. The Book of Beasts is some of the best monster books available, with Monsters of the Shadow Plane being the highest rated.

Also we recently started the Deadly Delves series of adventures. Doom ofthe Sky Sword is a great 1st level adventure to start off with. Rescue from Tyrkaven was a real hit at PaizoCon. Reign of Ruin is the highest level adventure we have published so far, involving a lizardfolk tribe, a black dragon and a forgotten temple deep in a swamp.

I hope these peak your interest.

If you are a fan of Dreamscarred Press' psionics, you should check out Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans.

Its the elanest!

Do you plan on releasing the official complete booklet soon?

We still have 6 races to go. Its just that if you bought all 6 currently available races plus the favored class option, that is $27.65. The plan has always been to offer it as a reduced price to incentivize buying early. This helped cover the art and writing costs for the project. Meanwhile, those that want to wait for the final book or only want it in print get it at MSRP.

Those that bought it in October 2014 paid for a 200+ page book and got favored class options. Having that kind of faith in us that we are 1) going to produce what we said we will and 2) produce a high quality book deserve to be rewarded. So we offered it at 25% off MSRP.

Now that we're half way through, it is still a great value. If you bought it right now, it is a savings of $7.66 over buying all the PDFs, and that does not factor in the 6 remaining races and the final compendium PDF. And our quality is just as high as we are known for.

And you will still get all the PDFs as soon as they completed instead of on their release date. Like samsarans. They come out next month. We hired some authors specifically to help us give this race a real transgender feel to it. Our signature samsaran was born into the body of a woman but the soul spent the past several lifetimes as a man. As such, he identifies as a man despite his birth gender. As soon as we finish that up, it is given right to subscribers instead of waiting for the release date.

Or lizardfolk. Richard Moore, the author behind catfolk did a smashing job on this one. And the signature character for this race arrived last night and it looks great. She's also our signature magus and our signature sexy character. Yes, the sexy lizardfolk.

Skinwalkers comes out in October, just in time for Halloween. David N. Ross, one of the authors on Blood of the Moon wrote some amazing options for this race.
