there was a vulturefolk Lichador,

A lichador? Does he use his mask as a phylactery? Man that sounds like a great idea.

Sounds like either an 80's Saturday Morning cartoon or an El Santo movie. This PDF sounds like it is freaking amazing.


This one sounds like it might work well with the vaguely-Slavic feel of most Kingmaker campaigns. Heck, I'd get it just to see what they do with the vukodlak.

16. The party breaks a binding/Iron Flask/whatever and a VERY powerful evil outsider appears, more then strong enough to lay waste the group. It rears up with a mad laugh, looks you over, freezes, and bows its head to the ground before one PC. It then says, "Be careful, oh great one. The Others will find you soon and I am unable to defend you this time<' and vanishes.


So, information on Molthune AND a system for using militia/mercenaries? While the latter will have to be ***** amazing to make me forsake Legendary Games' books on mass combat, I'll still enjoy reading it.


I'll be interested just to see what it has to say about fighting less commonly written about monsters like plants, oozes, and vermin.


That sounds nice and creepy. The Hannibal Lecter alchemist.

That's because it is, obviously! Lots of fun material, even if I'm pretty focused on new shapeshifter stuff. The devourer alchemist is pretty darn cool, as is the unfettered soul ki power, I love the cryptid vigilante, and the poppet witch looks pretty amazing. Sadly, I prefer to stick to spontaneous casters, but it's a super-cool concept. Anyways, yeah, very neat product.

Okay, just what is the devourer alchemist?

Thanks Luthorne.

Tell me, which Adaptations are you referring to? I looked through my notes when I put thi together and didn't find any reminders of teased adaptations.

You mentioned it here...greater hybrid shape and true hybrid shape adaptations. Though you also said it was going to be Everyman Options: Shapeshifter, so maybe that's still in the future, I had just assumed that product evolved into this one...

Aw, crap.

Yeah, totally slipped my mind. I'll put it in the que "for realz" this time and make sure it happens in a future product. You're right that the original concept for an EMO: Shapeshifters got merged into this product, but that doesn't mean I can't still do another one somewhere down the line! (Or find a place to put this in sooner.)

I'll be looking forward to that.


I just downloaded the updated version of this and it's great. I really love the new art (more kitsune, yay) and the new macrosized adventures looks amazing. Enlarge that PC and let him punch Cthulhu in the face!


Luthorne makes this sound like one heck of a book.

Thanks to Franz Lurner for answering my question and so many others.

And I must say that I'm amused that Paizo gave us feats to reproduce that sub-sub-genre of horror, the Evil Hand. Of course some of the gamers I've known would get themselves jailed just so they could send their hand off to strangle an enemy in his sleep.

"Why, how could I have killed Lord Bilious, Mister Hellknight, sir? I was here the whole time!"

Thanks for letting us know, Luthorne.

May we get some in formation concerning this bit from the blurb:

An exploration of how different faiths of the Inner Sea region and beyond deal with haunts and the influence of the spirit world.

What faiths get listed, and how do they handle it? I assume that Cayden Caylien's worshipers mostly go the 'Wow, we brewed up a good batch this time' when the ghosts start coming through the walls.


I have a PDF of this book and I love it. I've got to get the hardcover.

While it's minor I love the one suggestion for a Slasher villain called the Skulltaker, a sapient(?) bear that hunts people down to take their heads. Reminds me of the old legends about Bigfoot in the Nahanni/Valley of the Headless Men as well as classic 70's 'Gaia's Revenge' flicks like Grizzly and Prophecy: A Monster Movie all at once.

I do wonder where they got the name 'Bloody Jake' for the 'Hillbilly slasher' Slayer archetype, though.

And I do admit, I wish more was done with the familial phylactery for the lich.

Also -- is the haunt related to the witchflame related at all to the little adventure sketch about a murderous and vengeful witchflame that we got in Ultimate Intrigue?


Having read a copy of this book, wow but Ken Hite is as bizarre as ever. In all the good ways.

Going by everything I heard about it, Jem and the Holograms was unspeakable garbage. Why make a movie about an obscure 80's cartoon, and then throw out everything that people actually liked about the original?

And I saw Sharknado the 4th Awakens last weekend. Dumb as dirt, but man was it ever fun. Now why can't more stupid movies at least be this entertaining?

And then there's classics like [i]The Horror of Party Beach{/i] where we learn that radiation can turn drowned corpses into frogman vampires.

A little bird tells me that Legendary Games have an upcoming product called Ultimate Factions, and one of the mechanics included is a way to introduce kingdom-level effects for groups and organisations trying to achieve their own goals.

*Perks ears up.* Really? Now that sounds like something I could use. May I know where you heard about this?

Thanks, Luthorne!

Spoiler:
But I thought the whole reason the others took Alain along on adventures was so they could fling him to the hungry ghoul/angry dragon/lecherous medusa while they made their escape?

Well, it really gets my Goat that they listed the 1973 Wicker Man, and not the superior, much more terrifying 2006 version.
This is one of those cases of sarcasm not coming through on the Internet, right?

Well, I know some people who told me with a straight face that Christopher Lee wished he was half the actor that Nicolas Cage is. Yeah. I really couldn't think of anything to say to that.

Then again I know some ladies who told me Lee's Dracula couldn't be worth anything because it's not like he was asked to appear in Twilight, now, was he?

Blood ties, bloodbath, boneshaker, curse terrain, curse terrain (greater), curse terrain (lesser), curse terrain (supreme), death clutch, decollate, flesh puppet, flesh puppet horde, flesh wall, grasping corpse, hunger for flesh, hunger for flesh (mass), massacre, plundered power, sacramental seal, symbol of exsanguination, torpid reanimation, and wither limb are all necromancy spells on the cleric spell list.

Wow, that's such a cheery list of spells. I mean, we get no description at all (I'll wait for the book), but just the names!

Bloodbath sounds like it's just the spell for female characters who want to get their Elizabeth Bathory vibe on.


So this has been removed from the site? Rats!

This would have been a great book for alternate racial traits(and racial feats) for actual horror themed races like Dhampir, Changling, Tiefling, Deep One Hybrid, Skinwalker, etc..

They have to leave something for the Horror Realms and Horror Heroes books. At least I hope we get some of what you mentioned in them.


I remember how a while ago e were told that the book would have rules for how to make a 'people suit' a la Silence of the Lambs. Did that make it in the book, and what exactly does it do for you?

For that matter, who the heck wants one besides a Kuthite?

10 Rumours About the Haunted House

I hope you enjoy the articles and that they make your GMing just a little bit easier!

Enjoy the weekend--

I definitely enjoy that one. I'm looking forward to getting that Haunted Houses PDF when it becomes available.

Thanks Rysky, and thanks everyone else who answered my questions here.

And a monster resurrected by the PTSD of its slayers? That's nice and creepy


Several people have mentioned how great the stalker/slasher template is. May we get a general idea of what it provides?


I was delighted to see Night of the Demon on that list, for some reason it's usually forgotten when people describe the great horror films.

I do kind of wonder why The Great God Pan is listed as body horror. I would swear that it's a definite Cosmic Horror tale myself.

And talking Body Horror, would anyone disagree that Island of Lost Souls with Charles Laughton would fit perfectly there?

Two questions:

1) What are the new story feats? I'm especially curious about the Tainted/Horrific Love one that got mentioned some time ago.

2) The book supposedly contains lists of what monsters are suited for what sort of horror. Just what kinds of monsters work best for slasher horror?

** spoiler omitted **

Thanks ASO.

Hmmm, so the Tainted Love story feat allows you

Spoiler:
to play Tatyana from Ravenloft?


Verzen wrote:

So it's basically you can take the feat ONLY if you have certain background campaign traits OR are trying to protect a persecuted village. Then you TEMPORARILY get the craft construct feat and it cannot qualify you for any other future feats. You then need to make a construct of 5 CR or greater and DONATE it to the village. You must do a significant amount of the construction but your friends CAN help you with the costs. The village CANNOT help with the costs and this golem CANNOT be an adventuring companion. It MUST be donated to the village so that the village can be protected.

Once this is accomplished, you get craft construct as a bonus feat WITHOUT needing to qualify for that feat and you can create a golem equal to or less than the CR of the CR you made at a 10% discount. (Or normal rate if the golems CR is higher)

So this feat allows you to be Rabbi Judah Ben Loewe and make the Golem of Prague?

The more I hear about this book the more I know I have to get a copy.


Gisher wrote:
Any info on the Heritage feats would also be welcome. I'm hoping they don't have high Cha requirements like the Draconic Eldritch Heritage feats do.

I second this question.


A question for anyone who has the PDF -- just how does the familial lich and their phylactery work? They get killed, hop to a still-living family member and lich-ify them, or what?

And thanks to everyone who's shared information about this book so far.

20 Things to Loot from a Dead Cultist

I like the last one in that dead cultist list. Have to wonder how many PCs would wince a bit after reading it.

Heck I wish some movie directors could read it. Like every single one doing a "horror" film for the SyFy Channel.
I'm sure not EVERY one from SyFy needs it. They've had a couple gems. Not many to be sure, but a couple. Manticore (aka Manticore WMD) Reign of the Gargoyles, and Sasquatch Mountain (aka Devil on the Mountain) were really good. (I can't believe I am defending SyFy :) )

True enough, though it seems that for every movie that you mentioned they do half a dozen of Megashark Vs. Giant Octopus.

Getting back to the actual book, I do wonder what sort of monsters would work best for slasher horror. Wouldn't a slasher 'monster' normally be an ordinary if strong and tough human with levels in barbarian or slayer?

Something tells me Ssalarn has been watching a ton of Lucha Underground lately.

Creating a more dynamic grappler and getting some more WWE, "flashy" style options to make wrestling characters in PF more cinematic is something that's been percolating in the back of my head for a while now.

The fact that lucha libre media has been on the rise a bit of late only helps matters :)

It has? Does this mean someone is selling English subbed or dubbed DVDs of the classic 'El Santo vs. the monsters' movies?


That section of the book will be almost as entertaining to me as the parts with the new templates, weird character options, etc.

Heck I wish some movie directors could read it. Like every single one doing a "horror" film for the SyFy Channel.

I just realized something that I've always wanted that I want to be in this book.

Wendigo Corruptions

(or in some other Horror aligned book, doesn't necessarily have to be this one :3)

Seconded.

Thirded.


I hope that episode 18's plot is that Discord gets so into the game he turns it into the world's wildest LARP.

And I like what they showed us of the Changeling one. And while I like evil-bad 'lings, I hope they let this one stay good.

Thinking about it, I actually DO like the pure combatant v.s. the spell user for most dragons. Save the "smart" dragons for the intrigue or longer story games. Use linnorms for a terrifying monster that (for some reason) still sleep atop mounts of gold. Anyone have an explanation for that?

No idea about the gold though. They like shiny stuff? Outside of Pathfinder's Fafnheir I don't actually know of any Linnorms that keep loot piles. Body piles on the other hand...

Probably not the 'real' Pathfinder reason but I remember reading some essays on Norse myth that suggested dead kings and jarls buried with their wealth were believed to turn into dragons after death, guarding their hoard out of residual greed and killing to sate their bloodlust.


I got the book and I like it, but I would like to ask if game information for the Stateless Agent drawback or Heir to Corruption trait has been listed anywhere. Neither are described in the book itself though they're both listed for sample backgrounds on page 5.

I finally posted my review for this one, after having it be eaten by the site several times!


Thanks End! If this is any sample of what to expect, I hope that LG does more of these for prestige classes.


Just put a review of my own up. This is one great supplement for anyone who even thinks they might use assassins in their own game.
