So... Marvel lied about Cap. He was under mind control by a female(?) Cosmic Cube who did this to jerk the fans' chains please the Red Skull.

More here for those interested: Cap's a Nazi, no wait, he really isn't.

And once again I am reminded why I stopped reading current issues of Marvel Comics years ago.

Though I do wonder what business model Marvel is pursuing where you apparently kick your readers in the posterior for laughs and expect them to keep buying the comic.

I do. Iz why I made that post.

D'oh! My apologies, I misread your comment. I'll wake up SOMETIME today.

And I agree with Rysky's idea.

This will sound odd, but I hope we get something for evil healers. Why must they always be good? Bad guys need healing, too.

JiCi,

It's like that movie about the human mosquito which aired on Syfy channel a while back...

"Wrymwitch" and "draconian appearances" are sounding good! (Flemeth?!)

I'm eager to find out about these myself.


I have a copy of this and it's pretty good. I did notice a couple of errors on the succubus class write-up on page 8. Under 'Special' for 2nd level, it lists '+2 Dex, +2, +2 Cha, keen senses (+4)'. Just what is that second '+2' for? Is it just a typo?

Also, under 'Special' for 5th level it has 'profane gift' among the benefits the succubus gains. But at the same time the PDF lists a feat 'Profane Gift' for a succubus level 8 and character level 11. Which is the right one?


My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic as directed by M. Night Shyamalan.

Twilight Sparkle finally decides to discover what really lies beyond Equestria's borders. Everyone tries to stop her but she forces her way through and discovers... they're all toys under some kid's bed. That she's about to throw out. What a twist!

I still have my copy sitting around here *looks over the mounds of stuff* Somewhere.

I'm looking right at my copy. It's probably the very last 3/3.5 book I own.

The terrifying thing is that its production values are probably better than Sharknado!

Having seen trailers for Sharknado: the 4th awakens, I have to agree. That CGI though -- who knew you could get so much mileage out of a kid's laptop?

That picture of Kyra reminds me of the finale to one of the sleazy Count Yorga films.

Is the Agathiel archetype basically a specialization (Like Warlock and Zealot) or is can it still pick avenger/stalker specialization? What does it trade, and what does it gain?

I really like the idea of this archetype

The agathiel alters dual identity and trades out the 2nd, 4th, 8th, 12th, and 16th level vigilante talents. Specialization is not affected.

It gains a restriction as to alignment, Aspect of the Beast as a bonus feat while in vigilante form, and the ability to imitate an animal that later turns in the ability to transform into one indefinitely, though they don't gain ability bonuses and only a limited number of abilities, though these increase as they level up.

I have to say, it seems like the agathiel archetype loses an awful lot of its talents.


Yes, this is for real. We may soon have a new contender for 'worst movie ever made' when this hits the theaters.

Hopefully it will be okay to link to it here, given that there's some slightly gory scenes:

Sky Sharks Official Trailer

And the plot:

Deep in the ice of the Antarctic, a team of geologists uncover an old Nazi laboratory, still intact, where dark experiments had occurred. Unwittingly the geologists unleash upon the world a top-secret experiment the Germans had been working on - modified sharks that are able to fly, whose riders are genetically mutated, undead super-humans. The only thing that can stop them, and possibly save the world, is a military task force called “Dead Flesh Four“ – assembled from reanimated U.S. soldiers who fell in Vietnam.

So, Nazi super-zombies on flying sharks versus what seems to be a force of American Frankenstein Monsters; what eight year old came up with this?

And this was funded by Kickstarter, too. Maybe Paizo can get a Pathfinder movie together someday. I mean, if this was made...

That is both awesome and creepy.

And hmm, I wonder what happens if one of those books gets reprinted? Or just re-written the way so many have been?

I also imagine what might happen if someone tosses off a potent dispel in a battle in a library, and it just so happens to affect some of those 'books'.

The second one gives me the idea that you can use it to hide one of your party from discovery while keeping them right there. Say for a meeting with a big bad or some untrustworthy sorts. Then if/when everything goes wrong, PC #1 removes their 'face', tosses it in the air, a second PC hits it with dispel magic to restore them to normal, and surprise!

This sounds like the kind of stuff I used to draw in my Sunday School classes. I may have to take a look at it, or at least read a good review.


May we get some hints as to what the Godclaw oracle mystery is like?

And does the book make it seem like an Infernal bloodline Bloodrider or Steelblood bloodrager could become a Hellknight? The whole 'rage' aspect seems like it'd stand in the way.

Canonically (at least back in the day, he learned magic to rescue his mother's spirit.

Another missed opportunity. I'd love to see an Invaders flashback in which they get help against the occult Thule forces allied with the Nazis (who are attempting to tap the power of slumbering Cthon in Wundagore Mountain) from a young gypsy witch named Caterina, who is dating another gypsy, a young swordsman name Konstantin von Doom.

The Invaders and allies barely succeed, and put Cthon back to sleep, after the Thulian sorcerers attempt to rouse him in a last-ditch effort to punish their foes, but Caterina is cursed by the last dying sorcerer to be hellbound, for her interference...

There's so much rich potential buried in Doom's backstory. If Anton Arcane, over at DC, hadn't already had this storyline, I'd love to see Doom go to hell to rescue his mother, backed up by magical resources back on Earth, and end up warring with Mephisto, and *conquering part of hell in the process.*

'Cause, Doom.

I do remember one old Invaders story where some unwilling scientist and his bandaged assistant help Schiklgruber summon Thor to assassinate Stalin. It all ends badly, of course, with the assistant revealing that he's Victor von Doom as he scornfully leaves Hitler in the shattered remains of the machine used to reach Asgard.

On the other hand it did give Union Jack II (or was it III?) the power to toss lightning bolts.


I was just looking at my copy of Occult Adventures and reading the mind swap and possession spells, and I noticed that they're both almost the same thing save for the fact that the original spellcaster's body isn't unconscious with mind swap.

I was wondering, just what is the best use for these two spells? If you can cast possession, why would you need mind swap or vice-versa? It seems to me that the best use for the latter would be if you wanted to bring a fellow PC along and trick an enemy.

If anyone has any further ideas on how best to use these spells, I'd vastly appreciate some advice.


That's a great review, End. I like the information you provided on the 'aliens', I was wondering what the planned ending for them was. I half expected it'd end with the PCs turning them loose on Golarion and getting some allies out of it. Looks like I was very wrong!

I'll second this. It sounds great thus far but a more in-depth review would be likely to convince me.


Luthorne wrote:
Kickstarter is not like Patreon, your money is only taken once, at the end of the campaign. As a result, Kickstarter is usually used to fund a single project, while Patreon is more often used to support a series of projects or to support an ongoing work. So yeah, any money you pledge now will only be taken once the project is over, and that's it.

Thank you, Luthorne.


This will doubtless be a dumb question, but I know very little about Kickstarter: can you give money more than once to the same project? Say, $10 one week and then $10 more the next for a total of $20 in support?

Also, does the money get taken from you every month like with Patreon, or only once?

There should be an update rolling out for Ultimate Charisma soon-ish. It isn't big; the back cover of Ultimate Charisma was changed from brown to green to better match the cover, and the Rogue Genius Games logo was added.

If that appeals to you, great! If not, congratz! Your "No–RGG" logo product is officially a collector's edition. ;-)

I was wondering why I got an e-mail about this. Thanks for clearing it up, Mister Augunas.

Luthorne, Mister Augunas, thanks.


Great list there Luthorne. Can we get some more information on the cavalier order and the kineticist archetype? I get the idea that the latter is going to be a 'Firestarter' homsge.

And I also love that they have material relating back to the magnificent 'Ultimate Charisma' herein. *Sigh* And I was hoping to hold on to some money this month, too. Guess I've got to get this one now.

End's review makes these mythic demons sound like they'd make better and more thematic opponents for PCs than their non-mythic cousins. Which makes me glad for the whole 'you can use mythic opponents in non-mythic campaigns' argument that LG has often used.

The dretch and kithangian especially sound like creepy horrors now.

Well, seeing as how the River Kingdoms do have several places where reality and the First World intermingle, it seems likely we Kingmaker/River Kingdom fans will get something here.

Superman came back to life, of course, but we also got Steel and a new Superboy out of the deal.

Oh don't get me started about Steel.

Steel *should* be an A lister. I mean you have a guy who did the whole Tony Stark thing, Inventor, self made hero, etc, along with the best of Rhodey (physically fit, athlete, capable hand to hand combatant.) This guy should be put out front and center as a 'new hero' and he's relegated to second place. He's also a family man, community oriented etc...

but he sits in limbo.

So here's Dc's Tony Stark, and they don't use him.

My dream casting for him? The much underused Jamil Walker Smith or Roger Cross.

Him and the Michael Holt Mister Terrific. I thought those guys were great.

Wow...I liked the Conjuring. Even though that particular genre of horror is usually the one I find least interesting. Knowing the details behind the events would probably make the movie seem worse than it was.

Hey, I'm glad you liked it. My problem is less the story the the Warrens themselves and their real-life antics. If you ever need to be amused by reading the most breathless and poorly-backed-up "real" hauntings ever, get a copy of The Demonologist and you'll be reduced to derisive laughter.

I hope I get to use some of this to revise my one kitsune character. Her color scheme is a bit different. She's based on a different fox than the red most kitsune art goes for. (Silver fox, to reflect the fact she's a ninja and red doesn't really work with stealth.)

"Silver fox" kitsune are in the Dynastic Races Compendium as one of the ethnicities; they're called blackfurs, and they usually result from some sort of weird taint in the kitsune's bloodline, such as oni blood or shadow essence or something peculiar.

You can see a picture of one on our latest update on the Kickstarter page.

I like the art of the Arctic and 'Fennec' kitsune.

I also like the idea that when kitsune and humans have kids together, the child is always another kitsune. It gives me an idea for how a small group of kitsune could (slowly, over a couple of generations) 'take over' a human community by breeding with the humans until there's nothing but kitsune left.


Whatever is going on with you, End, I hope it settles to your satisfaction soon.


Oh and one I never saw but it must be an abomination -- Knucklehead starring the Big Show, Paul Wight. Made as a slapstick comedy, in its entire American run it made $1000. That's not per theater, that's in total.

It did better in worldwide release. A grand total of... $7,927. Yeah. Big Show's acting career seems to have ended after this.

Well, I (finally) posted my own review here. It can't begin to match to End's, but I hope it helps convince people to buy this one.


I hope we get some new information on the Witchmarket, and maybe even some sample items for it to offer.

That needs to be put out on DVD so the poor fools who watched it back in the day (like me) can share the horror with other SW fans. Jar-Jar Binks can't hold a candle to that piece of lunacy.

Eric,

Never came across THAT one no.

I heard about it quite a few years ago online at (I think) the Hero Games forums. Apparently they did a story in Spidey about a kid Pete knew getting molested, and it was less then brilliantly handled. Some people complained and then it came out that it could have been a LOT worse.


Really? Dang. That was one of the very few comics I still collected.

RIP, Anung Un Rama.


This may be a bit OT, but talking some of the rather tasteless storylines Marvel has done and attempted, does anyone else remember the time (I believe back in the 90's) when someone at Marvel wanted to do a story in which Uncle Ben turned out to be a pedophile?

Yes, really, and all of Spidey's happy memories of him would turn out to be Stockholm Syndrome. I'm just glad that one never got printed. Apparently one of the editors at Marvel killed it immediately.

I'll take Coleman Francis and raise you: William 'One Shot' Beaudine. Even on Poverty Row, how did that man ever become a director??

I also keep hearing about an animated film named FOOD FIGHT that is apparently the Necronomicon of bad animated films. Part of me wants to see it just to learn if it's worse than that one 'Titanic' movie with the rapping dog, gangster sharks, and giant octopus that saves everyone.


This books sounds like it'll be great, especially the haunts.
