DM Beckett wrote:
Yah, I think Cleric is the only class that doesn't have an option to add any spells to their list (outside of Domains and other Level 1 only options), which is very annoying.

Its tricky because cleric has one of the most subtly awesome spell lists in the game, combined with an average BAB, great armor and weapon options (because you're likely to pick a god with a weapon you want, if you want something that's not simple), and the game's only real AOE healing option combined with decent spell flexibility for a prepared caster.

In other words, one needs to be careful of not accidentally making a strong class an unstoppable powerhouse, because the potential is there with the cleric.

We're trying to get that message across to Becky for ages, but he still thinks Clerics were a barely viable 3.5 class that got hopelessly gutted in Pathfinder.

Why all the hatin on Dammy?

As a proper, well-conditioned citizen of the United Godless Republiks, Kingdoms and Grand Duchies of Yurp, I find any implication that capital punishment is anywhere within "Good" alignment as abhorrent and insane.

But it's OK, Paizo was smart to balance Empyreal Lords so that AlgaeNymph gets Arshea and Lymnieris while Beckett gets Ragathiel and Damerrich.

Just want Crystal's word on whether Hobgoblin=getting attacked by town NPCs.

I'm kinda over it, anyway, I just wanted to hear Crystal's input. The lack of feats/traits/plot hooks and the constant time sink are what made me drop the idea.

Now, as for a little goblin...that might be interesting.

I do not exist as the developer to rubber-stamp anyone's character concepts

In your home game you're welcome to play whatever you, your GM, and your fellow players find entertaining. You can have hobgoblins in your homegame act like any of the core races, with some good and some bad. If you want to play a hobgoblin in this AP, it will require additional work on your GM's part.

If it's not too late, I'd plug for a upper-med CR (9-11) humanoid aquatic undead. WotC had the Drowned, Tome of Horrors had the Brykolakalakakakas, I'd love to see something new here. Lacedons just don't cut at later levels :)

To be honest i'm looking out for Koboldpress Tome of Beasts more than Bestiary 6 at this time, the list of monsters we got at release worries me that it will mostly have big one-of-akind monsters, lovecraft critters, re-uses from AP's and even many pages on troops.

Hope i'm wrong, but the strange thing is that I don't mind it anymore.

Don't worry, I don't mind it as well, I'm going to buy it anyway :)

Wow, this is early.

I'm excited for the Archdevils and Horsemen getting stats, but i would love to see more Demon Lords and Great Old Ones.

Also i hope the Empyreal Lords have better stats than before.

So the Monkey Goblin makes the transition from the Inner Sea Bestiary and the Munavri from Darklands Revisited from Golarion to Setting neutral.

Finally: Krampus - really?
That is a fun character, isn't it?

Well it's not like anybody expects Germans to be much into that whole "sense of humour" thing that other nations keep going on about :P

Extracting anything of note from fiction (which varies greatly in quality) is much more time-and-energy consuming than lifting a statblock or information from a support article. I'm paying stupid big money for my APs, I want my buck to give me a bang, ads and fiction don't give me the bang - I can live with ads (but honestly, print ads in 2016?) but fiction makes me grind my teeth since Burnt Offerings.

If I want to read quality prose, I have a massive backlog of great books from cool authors (including PF Tales!) waiting for me. I don't want to wade through some sometimes stellar, sometimes less so short stories stretchered over 6 months in order to perhaps find some nugget that might be relevant to the game I'm running.

Die, fiction, die.

...what?

No.

Playing the same race as the antagonists is not the same as playing a class or alignment which directly contradicts the theme of the game.

Yes, it's still trying to get a square block into a round hole. Your GM will have to put in lots of additional work into making it work. Why do you want to make your GM's life harder? Running a good game is enough work as it is.

Well, a good GM adjusts things on the fly to fit the group. Like Kali says, it seems like your GM did something weird: on the one hand, he made encounters harder, but it seems he wanted to balance it by faster XP track and stuff like free diamonds. I don't think it's a good move, bumping lethality of the campaign is something that should only be done if the party is 6+ PCs or the majority of the group is playing highly optimized characters. PCs dropping left and right is not fun. People get burned out and frustrated.

A solid campaign will likely have a couple spectacular PC deaths, but should never pass the frustration threshold.

If you are the DM, then how about give everyone a couple of spell like powers because "story", "reasons", "stuff", etc. It would make any non-caster and many casters happy plus if there is a interesting reason for it all the better:)

I mean, using my fingertip to hunt for elusive pixels is a skill which helps in ... many ... other ... real-life situations, but I am painfully aware that as my sight and muscles deteriorate over the years, this is not going to get any easier.

Wait, by hippie treehugger do you mean that a lawful good alignment or paladin based abilities are required?

An omnicidal death machine is something that kills anything and everything indiscriminately and that's not what Ragathiel is about.

His portfolio says he's domains are chivalry, righteous vengeance, and holy warfare. In a nutshell his followers are the perfect candidates for Mendev's war against the Worldwound.

I think it might be a prestige class close to the Fist of Raziel prestige class (from D&D 3.5's Book of Exalted Deeds).

You guys are awesome. I'll pitch Bloodrager to him (I think he wasn't aware of existence of ACG classes insofar) and failing that, we'll work with some combination of Fey Magic, Arcane Talent and the traits Blindmage listed.

Except it wasn't to save money. It was to ignore the massive groundswell against 4th edition. They can restart their message boards now that they have a decent product.
WotC forums were closed less than a year ago, so it had nothing to do with 4th edition.

And now BioWare is closing theirs. Shifting fan interaction to social media is a trend, and while between PFS and general anti-tech sentiment of the fanbase the Paizo forums will last a few years longer, I believe we won't be posting here in 5 years tops.

As an errate to Marco's review - while the book uses statblocks from the NPC Codex, all of those are freely available on the PRD, so no big problem there.

I'm sorry, but isn't Child of A&A just a fighter archetype that turns them into a arcane 4/9th caster? What exactly do they want and why are they hung up on fighter?

What he wants is ability which would be similar to spell-casting rogue talents, from what I understood. CoA&A might be a bit too far, true, but then again maybe the player will be inspired by it and go all the way. At any rate, I'd never happen upon this archetype on my own :)

And he's an "always Human Fighter" person. Not much room for argument there :)

And sadly Archives of Nethys is on a back-log due to back-pains. Cast that heal spell faster, Nethys!

I forgot to add that he wants to play a non-spellcasting martial (Fighter preferably) so all the 4/9 casters are pretty much a no-go.

Child of A&A looks interesting, thanks Saethori! Does anybody know where it can be found on d20pfsrd, as it can't appear under that name there? I have the book, but I'd love to shoot a link to the player so he can take a look at it.

Howdy,

One of my players wants to play a straight full-BAB non-spellcasting martial (preferably a Fighter) and asked me if there's any way his character could be able to cast a limited (2-3 max) number of 0/1-level spells/SLAs/psychic powers without resorting to multiclassing or to playing a Magus. Are there any feats/archetypes that grant such abilities? Paizo and 3PP sources are all welcome.
