What about the third option: the paladin asked Zadim to kill him. He was ready, and it was time for him to face judgement, both for his crimes and his acts of healing, and only the gods could make a final determination. Would his attempts to atone and redeem himself be enough to cool Sarenrae's righteous anger? Perhaps giving himself over to an agent of Hers was but the final step in his atonement process.

Though I suppose such an idea really is both the third and fourth options. The paladin asks for a merciful death, and then Zadim either does or does not deliver one.

Great story, Erik.

I think the other possibility for after the campaign is more fun. Gee, just what might cultists of Rovagug be up to in Sothis?

Yes, there's a statblock for Ulunat Reborn.

Nanite Strike lets you essentially "poison" melee weapons with nano-infection. Nanite Surge lets you add class level +3 to a d20 roll once (later twice) per day. Nanite Resurgence works like the Resurgent Transformation spell, except as an (Ex) ability. Distributed Body gives you a 25% fortification ability.

And then you turn into a Living Swarm. I think this may be my new favorite bloodline, period.

Nanite. Sorcerer. Bloodline.

The Impossible bloodline from Champions of Balance has NOTHING on this one. At 20th level you can dissolve into a colony of nanites at will, as per Gaseous Form.

Whoa. That cover. Poor Amiri. She's going to be PISSED. That rust monster will probably be beaten down into nothing but a brown, bloody goo by the time she gets done with it.

I mean, that sword is her signature thing, almost the definition to her character. It would be like seeing Droogami bite it on a cover. Though if it's just leading into her getting a chainsword/flamethrower/rocket launcher combo, all maybe in the arm of a robot she tears off and just uses as a massive club until she discovers the other features, that'll be cool.

So both #5 and #6 are coming out in July?

That's fairly typical for APs. They try to keep to 1 volume a month, but somewhere along the way they have delays or printer issues or... well, something that messes up the schedule, but the one thing that is an absolute MUST for Paizo is the GenCon releases, including the first volume of the new AP. Those come out the first day of GenCon, period. Doesn't matter what it takes or how many hours a week the team has to spend up at the office. IIRC the GenCon crunch is in May since they have to send it to the printer in China and ship it back to the US.

137ben, for what it's worth, you're not alone. To be honest, the whole book kind of underwhelms me, at least at first glance. Putting all of the hags in one book together might have helped. Just something with a base CR of 12+ wouldn't have hurt either.

Still going to get it when it releases of course, but not one I'll be chomping at the bit for.

What we need is a high base CR (like 15+) gremlin. Think how awful a Mythic version of one of those could be. >:D

It's a GenCon release. Those release dates work a bit differently than most Paizo books. (Thursday August 14th = opening day of GenCon.)

Subscribers may get their PDFs a little early. It's varied from year to year.

They don't get any orisons? I mean, I get it as a carryover from the Paladin class, but if you're switching them to the Cleric spell list, they really need 0th level spells per day as well.

Forget about the bonus to checks. It lets you automatically do all of those things you're wanting to pull off, as a free action. The only Ride uses you have to roll while wearing that belt for are Cover, Soft Fall, and Leap.

Go find the nearest temple of Abadar, assuming your game is set on Golarion. The typical Abadarian temple is usually a de facto bank and moneychanger as well.

I thought the general consensus from other threads was Alchemist next, though I can certainly see Gunslinger and Paladin to finish off the full BAB slate.

This would be the best option. Those of us who wouldn't touch a Kitsune book with a 10-foot pole (unless said pole were on fire) still might find a lot of content to use with the other races.

Any traits or suggestions for elemental-touched characters of Mephit, Gargoyle, Azer, Pech, Nereid, Triton, etc. heritages? (or less obvious Air/Earth/Fire/Water/Cold races, like Invisible Stalkers, Fire Yai, Cold Riders or Adlets) Or is it all genies?

Bastards & Bloodlines, from Green Ronin, had a fairly awesome Gargoyle/Dwarf crossbreed race, for instance, and Azer/Dwarf or Nereid/Aquatic Elf seem kind of like a no-brainers.

Just Genies. Nothing else. It's really, really pretty, I mean some of the best art in a Player Companion yet, but the crunch is poor, at best.

The only even tangential precedent I can think of is Aerie in the 2e PC game Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal. If your Bhaalspawn PC and her ended up having a child together and she died, raising her would bring the unborn baby back right along with her.

I've actually been giving all witch characters their Patron Hex from Rogue Genius's Advanced Options: Patron Hexes as a bonus hex at 1st level. It helps add a bit of meaning to a witch's choice of patron.

(Now if the backer count goes up to 145 total, that will be a free add-on to the KS!)

Wouldn't they both be better as archetypes than PrCs? I thought PfRPG had basically abandoned the idea of the 5-level prestige class, or at least Paizo certainly seems to have done so.

Edit: Or what about converting them into options for a Wilder-centric Mythic path?

Inner Sea World Guide is just a huge file. I don't ever bother downloading any of the One File per Chapter options for any Paizo PDF - except that one. The only device I ever look at PDFs on that can handle the full Inner Sea World Guide PDF with the full art is my quad core, liquid cooled, OC'd to 4.6 GHz gaming-grade desktop.

No mobile device is really up to the task of the full ISWG file.

The Invulnerability enchantment really should be DR 5/Epic, with the explicit provision that you do not overcome Epic DR with you attacks just by wearing such armor.

A +1 SR 13 (+2 equivalent) breastplate is only 9kgp (kilo-gold piece, or 1,000 gp) which is a little bit more than 25% of an 8th level PC, and 20% of a 9th level PC's gear, so we have SR = char lvl + 4.5

+1 SR 15 (+3 equivalent) is 16 kgp, which is a little bit more than 25% of a 10th level PC, and 20% of a 11th level PC's gear, so SR = char lvl + 4.5

+1 SR 17 (+4 equivalent) is 25 kgp, which is 25% of a 12th level PC's estimated gear, so SR = char lvl +5

+1 SR 19 (+5 equivalent) is 36 kgp, which is a bit more than 25% of a 13th level PC's estimated gear, and 20% of a 14th level PC's gear, so again, SR = char lvl + 4.5

How much further would be balanced to up that? Character level +8, maybe, so SR 17/19/21/23? Or would changing it from a fixed SR number to (character level + number) be better? Maybe char level +5/+7/+9/+11 instead of the fixed values?

Honestly, between this and the Ranged Combat Player's Companion, November is kind of a let down for me. We're still getting more of Iron Gods so I'll definitely look forward to my monthly shipment, but both this and the Companion for the month aren't that particularly interesting to me.

I was flipping through the back of Inner Sea Gods and stumbled across a deity that I hadn't heard of and couldn't find much about. So, who is Feronia?

Dispater's ex-wife and Ragathiel's mother (see Kobold Quarterly 23.) (You'd probably get more info by asking Wes instead, since he's the Lord of Hell and James is more Prince of the Abyss.)

Back in my day Paizo pdfs cost less than the hardcovers.
When last I checked, $27.99 was indeed less than $39.99...

And Amazon sells it for $28.96 currently. So with quibbling you are technically correct. The pdf is still about $1 cheaper than you can easily get it. That's about a 4% savings I'd say for the change in format.

Though there is also currently a new copy through a third-party seller on Amazon for $26.01, one for $26.02, one for $26.99, and one for $27.99 . . . .

Paizo PDFs are priced at 70% of the cover price (barring RPG hardbacks and the core setting book, which this one is not.) If Amazon or other dealers want to sell it for less than 70% of MSRP, that's their business.

People complained about the price for the PDF of the compilation of Rise of the Runelords, too. Rules hardback PDFs are 9.99 since most of it is OGC which will go to the SRD and 3rd party sites soon enough. Inner Sea World Guide was 9.99 for the PDF since it was the core setting book and is pretty much necessary to GM a game set in Golarion. Inner Sea Gods is not necessary for a GM. Nice to have, I mean, really nice to have, but not necessary.
