Yesterday, Everyman Gaming gave a bit of a sneak peak on the Unchained fighter. Check it out for yourself here: EverymanGaming.com.
The information at the link sounds good. It sounds very good!
And dumb question, but will the new fighter also get 4 skill points per level, like they do in your 'Skills' PDF? Because I love that system so very much.
Talking about the product itself, I really hope that among the locations we get information on are the island of Kalva and its raving cannibal Viking berserkers as well as that weird fungus that seems to be controlling everyone (slasher and cosmic horror for one low price). An update on poor Gillamoor in Isger would also be welcome. Whatever happened with that whole miniature zombie apocalypse, anyway?
And the idea of 'First World Incursions' sounds great. I always did love some scary-nasty fey.

So, we can expect a Kitsune (maybe Kumiho) corruption? Hey, I'd buy it.

I'm looking forward to both of these.
BTW, is there a proper place on the forums to ask about things like the best 20-pt build for a half-orc member of this class? I keep wondering if one should emphasize the physical or mental characteristics.
I'll go with 'Dragon Disciple' simply because it's literally the first one that comes to mind. Maybe a way for people to get into that PrC without being an arcane spellcaster?
I imagine something could be done with the Duelist as well,, since the role of Dex-based melee fighter seems to have been usurped by the Unchained and/or Legendary Rogue and the Swashbuckler, esp. the Unchained version; and maybe a more heavily spellcasting version of the Pathfinder Chronicler?
I have a copy of this one and I really like the Focus Kineticist, if that's the one that uses an object to channel their blasts through. Great for ideas like Derro zapping you with their vril staves, the Mi-go using their lightning guns, etc.
Part of me still does wish it was possible to make such a character with heavy armor so you could go the Iron Man route, though.
The Battle Host replaces the normal implement progression entirely. So, yes, they lose it with nothing specific in exchange.
Thanks. It seems a shame that they lose their 6th level implement school, though they get a lot in exchange. Heck, you can get a masterpiece suit of heavy armor at 1st level, which isn't bad.
With the Battle Host Occultist archetype, it says under "Panoply Bond" that "your bonded item starts as an implement for any single school of magic at 1st level, and gains access to another school of magic at 2nd, 10th, 14th, and 18th levels". What about the school of magic at Occultists normally gain at 6th level? Do they just lose that and gain nothing specific in exchange for it?

I mean stories like Howard's 'Worms of the Earth' and 'The Little People', and Machen's 'Novel of the Black Seal' and 'The Shining Pyramid'. Stories about how the fae were really a race of devolved, murderous, sadistic cannibals who hid in caves and performed atrocities on anyone they caught. In-game I suppose these would be devolved halflings or gnomes.
There's also Leigh Brackett's Beast-Jewel of Mars in which a weird Martian cult venerates a gemstone that reverts humans into savage apelike beings.
EDIT: And I would enjoy seeing you do more with the Corruption templates and ideas you mentioned elsewhere in this thread.

Wow is it ever good that Lobo dropped those leotards.
And I wonder if we'll ever get an explanation for why the 'real' Last Czarnian has returned?
I can see Entothropes being favored by Deskari worshippers and spider Entothropes specifically being prevalent among Drow and followers of Atlach-Nacha.
Wait, Atlach-Nacha exists in the game? I thought they were replaced by Mazmezz.
Though I always did enjoy old A-N was depicted in CAS's classic 'The Seven Geases'.
I read that article. Hoo boy. I can remember when Mockingbird killed her rapist, Phantom Rider (and ugh how I hated what they did to him, turning him from a spooky hero into an utter scumbag) and I thought Hawkeye was being a jerk over the whole thing.
I loved the line about how Hawkeye would 'never let Wolverine be an Avenger'. And yet Bubsnikt Boy ended up in the Avengers anyway in the end. So he could kill the people Iron Man and Cap were too 'pure' to kill. BLARGH!
I just read this and wait, Marvel is doing a SECOND Civil War? What, the first wasn't awful enough? Can you count on issues and storylines being held hostage because the miniseries everything else is tied in to is half a year behind? Which heroes turned into imbecilic fascists this time?
Thanks Kalindlara. And while it's likely impossible, I'd love to see references to Mythos material by Brian Lumley like Yibb-Tstll or Bugg-Shash -- what? I like his stuff; it has a very fantasy feel to it. Ramsey Campbell did some amazing work as well, though I suppose Glaaki is still stuck on Earth.

My gosh, someone remembers Yidhra.

It would be too much to ask for us to get her and her cult statted up in this AP, wouldn't it?

Great stuff. I especially like this one:
Recent heavy rain, or perhaps a minor tremor, recently unearthed a massive, unmarked grave in an unused corner of the graveyard. No one knows exactly who is buried there, or why, and officials are scrambling to get the bodies sorted and properly buried.
Reminds me of both the local collapses (one poor guy lost his house!) and the 'Poor Sinners' Corner' at the nearest cemetery. Of course over the decades the place has expanded until everyone who wasn't supposed to be buried in sacred ground now is, which makes me wonder what could happen in a fantasy setting when that happens. Maybe everyone else buried there gets up and moves to a better neighborhood?
Perhaps I am presumptuous, but I believe the original poster was referring to the legendary Japanese sorcerer Abe no Seimei, who was the son of a human man and a Kitsune.
Wait, Sinestro has become part of the Justice League? The same Sinestro who almost destroyed the planet when he fought the Green Lanterns with his Fear Corps? That Sinestro?
How long before they send an invite to any of Darkseid's minions who want to get in on the fun?
IWW was a piece of work. After Lois got killed, she was openly stating that she was happy about that so she could have a go at ISuperman. IBatman called her out on that and she was all 'How dare you question my integrity!"
Wow. That sounds almost as bad as what was done to the Amazons in Amazons Atttack.
I have a question about the monster-hunting Order of the Pike -- why is their analogous order the Scourge? Wouldn't it make more sense for them to have ties with the Order of the Nail instead? They seem to have a lot in common. Both exist on the fringes of civilized lands, both confront monsters regularly to defend innocents, while the Scourge works to oppose what might be called the 'internal enemies' of local crime.
