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 hope you enjoy them and that they make running your game slightly easier!

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

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.

Thanks End! And yeah, I'd prefer using this as the new rogue class in my own games as well.

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.

I got my own copy last night, and it's pretty good. I especially like the option that allows you to swap out your increased sneak attack damage for bonuses to other class abilities like spellcasting or combat feats.

I just want the death clutch spell for the next time someone tells one of my morally-challenged spellcasters that "You're heartless!"

"Nonsense." *Casts death clutch and the complainer's smoking and still beating heart appears in their hand.* "See? I have more of a heart than you do -- now."

Yeah, those poor dogs. I wonder why we get no vile cat transformation spell? Is it because cats are already evil and don't listen to anyone?

"Devolutionist druids devolve animals and humanoids into feral ancestors (including their animal companion, a devolved humanoid)"

That might be the prime reason I'm buying this!

Agreed! That has got to be one of the most sick and awesome druid ideas I've heard in a long time.

So, let me get this straight: you're making vigilante archetypes based on the Bladebound Magus, Druid, Dragon Disciple, Brawler, Witch, Tetori Monk, Paladin, Summoner, Kineticist and Shadow Dancer.

SOLD! :D

Dangit, something else I'll just have to get.


Good review End, but it looks like a little at the end was accidentally cut off.


Anything that provides some new power to curses is good in my book. Hopefully there is at least one that turns someone into a monster or the like.

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.

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...

Which one? Mansquito?

"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.

"How did you get past all those vampires without being bitten?"

"Sweet, dear Merisiel... I didn't."

jedi8187 wrote:

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!

They sound very good indeed. Thanks.

Spoiler:

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.

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.
