Looking forward to getting this one every time I hear more about it.
And Durvin Gest, the founder of the Pathfinders, was a fighter? Knock me down and call me shorty, I would have sworn he was a bard in game terms.
And oh yes, what does it have to say about the Varangian, I mean Ulfen Guard? I hope there's some fluff along with the crunch.
My pile of variously-completed projects has been a bit neglected lately as I've been dealing with our Kickstarter, taxes, and two undisclosed projects, but I should have time next week to lay out a more detailed preview of products coming up over the next few months.
I'll be looking forward to this preview. And hmm, undisclosed projects? Now I am eager.
The Book of the River Nations does indeed have some great stuff in it, primarily in the sections on kingdom buildings and hex improvements, that can work just fine with Ultimate Rulership. It's also got some magic items and a few feats that can work with UR. It is by no means obsolete!
I do have to say though, that if you want to run battles, LG's Ultimate Battle and very likely their forthcoming (hopefully soon) Ultimate War are THE way to go.
A great review as always, End. And since you mentioned it, I ave to saree that it's a shame we didn't get this: I also consider the lack of alternate racial traits to modify base races according to parent-fey or alternate racial traits an oversight in this - either that or some actual examples of how to court varying fey (with skills or the like), a select set of taboos - either would have improved the book.
Ah well, it gives LG something to do in their next fey-based supplement.

That idea (about the hex improvement icons) sounds great to me as well.
And another Kingdom-Building AP Plug-In coming soon? Ooh, I'm looking forward to it.
And thanks for the good news on the probably-April release date for both 'Ultimate War' and 'Legendary Tournaments', two tomes I've long awaited.

Now there's some good news! Faerie Mysteries and Ultimate War are definitely the two I've been looking forward to, particularly the latter after seeing the amazing job you did on Ultimate Rulership and Ultimate Battle.
Thanks for the response.
[Rite Publishing] In the Company of Dragons Playtest Cover Preview (You know you want to play a dragon!)
I'm thinking on getting this one mainly because one of the my favorite APs is Kingmaker, and you get some good chances at recruiting some centaur allies there if you play your cards right. And aside from soem brief troubles with the New Paths Compendium (downloading and reading, not the material!) KP is one of THE best 3rd party publishers out there.

Please direct any issues with downloading your PDFs here, thanks! It looks like it should have cleared up, but if it hasn't, please let us know in that thread.
Was finally able to download mine; thank you!
EDIT: And just let me say that, after reading about the skinchanger -- YES! This is something I've wanted to see in Pathfinder for a long time, and it's handled so very well here!
Thank you, Kobold Press!

Well, according to a thread or two on the Website Feedback portion of the messageboards, quite a few people are unable to get some of their PDFs to download. Maybe I downloaded this just as the problem first hit and that's why my copy of the PDF is being so difficult to use?
Everything goes fine for me except the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press. I got it Saturday, was able to download it then, but now the version I've got saved can be opened with Acrobat but refuses to work after that (can't go from page to page); and I can no longer download it from the site. Am I doing something wrong, or is the problem found elsewhere?
@Eric Hinkle - I've heard of no one else with that problem. My suggestion is something is either hosed with your copy of Acrobat or, more likely, your PDF is corrupt in some way. I'd suggest downloading a fresh new copy of the PDF and seeing if the problem persists (in fact, there is an updated version of the PDF coming out in the next day or two, so you could even wait until you get your 'updated PDF available" e-mail and then just download then.
I'll try downloading it once more, and if that doesn't work I'll do what you say. I doubt it''s my copy of Acrobat at fault, since it opens and runs all the other PDFs I have without any trouble at all.
And thanks for the advice.
EDIT: *Ahem* I'll try downloading a new copy tomorrow, as right now every time I try to download it I just keep getting a 'wait ten seconds and try again' response. Yeesh but this PDF is being so difficult!

Glad to hear the good news. Better to wait a little longer than have Ultimate War be rushed and not so great. That said, I am looking forward to its release VERY much!

Pinkie Pie, is that you?
And I do have to agree, that idea sounds both cool and more than a little funny as the players and DM work to justify it. "How did my pony survive a fall into that pit filled with acid and sharks?"
Yeah, I'm getting the same thing from my spellcasters as well, but that's partly because while the wizard has been one multiple times, the oracle is a first time divine user, and chose the worst set up for his character so he's only got minimal battlefield control spells. He's starting to wish he was a sorcerer now just so he could have some offensive spells.
Dumb and OT question: what are good battlefield control spells for an oracle?

What he said. Rest assured, when it comes out I'll definitely be getting a copy!
And that's a typically great review there, End.

I suspect Jason will find his way here soon, but I think the delay on Ultimate War is owing to the progress he's made on the Mythic "monster" line-up, as well as getting everything in line for the recent Kickstarter to put out our first hardcover book. That's not to say there hasn't been progress with Ultimate War, however. I believe he's fairly deep into the writing and development of it. So, hang in there. The Ultimate plug-ins have been very popular so far, and I'm certain this one will get our focused attention very soon.
This is good to hear, and it's even better to know that the problems come from too much success rather than all sorts of real world problems hitting. Thanks for the response!
