Most likely to be covered in Occult Origins in the Player Companion line. That's Paizo's typical way of doing things. Big new crunch hardback, 32-page player's companion with the setting-specific details.

Being constantly left behind by updates is why I left the android sphere and got an iPhone. I've been so much happier with it. =/ I really wanted to support android as I'm a big supporter of open software but it's very frustrating.

OK Lissa, you're the first SysAdmin I've ever heard who made the switch TO iOS. Every admin I've ever worked with, who wasn't a Mac user beforehand, hates the Apple "closed box, no way to really access anything that goes wrong" approach. The Android fragmentation really irritated you that much?

(Fragmentation, for those of you not in the know, refers to the issues with Android OS phones being all over the map in terms of what phone is on what OS. Google can release new versions of Android all day until they're blue in the face, but then the hardware manufacturers get to layer their own skin and various programs on top of the OS, and then the carriers each get to add their own on top of that. Yeah, it causes some definite issues, though some people just go buy a Nexus device straight from Google. Pure Android, no carrier or hardware vendor garbage.)

You, um, do realize there are millions of Macintosh users out there (including the folks at Paizo) and the majority of musicians using ProTools.

Just saying, since that sounded a little like a pot shot at the Mac :)

It's not a shot at Mac: a 'Hackintosh' is non-Apple hardware running Mac OS. Not entirely legal and sounds like difficult to keep up to date.

It's legal as long as you bought your copies of the OS. Now difficult to update, that one is definitely true, at least in my experience. It takes weeks, sometimes months before updates to the OS can be added to a Hackintosh at all, assuming it just doesn't take a total reinstall every time. You also have to be quite picky in terms of hardware and even which version BIOS you put on that hardware.

So yeah, difficult.

You can just switch your browser over to Firefox. No need to replace or really even upgrade the laptop's OS. (But I know the upgrade can be done, as long as the hardware can run 10.10. We upgraded a bunch of our old Macs at work to 10.10 last year from 10.6.8 and 10.7.X.)

Now if you do want to do an OS upgrade, then check this page on apple.com (https://www.apple.com/osx/how-to-upgrade/) for more specific info, including a list of Macs that will support the 10.10 upgrade. (I will say, from personal experience of supporting the older Macs, if you have user-replaceable/upgradeable RAM, max it out for any older Mac going to 10.10. It runs fine, but it's more RAM-hungry than older versions of the OS.)

Is there a reason why the "Fiery" template under Versatile Summon Monster feat (page 19 of the Monster Summoner's Handbook) does not provide Fire Resistance?

The Aerial, Aqueous, and Chthonic do provide the expected resistances (electricity, cold, and acid respectively).

Because they gain the fire subtype, which should grant them fire immunity and cold vulnerability.

Second Darkness would benefit the most, true, but Crimson Throne is the one the majority of us want to see. Also the one that has three of its volumes out of print, while all volumes of Second Darkness are still available here on paizo.com. That was the big reason for RotRL AE, IIRC. Then again, that logic might lead us to Kingmaker Revised Edition, which wouldn't be a bad thing, either...

Thanks very much, Lissa. I'll look into doing that. Though I suspect windows 7 is probably later than windows Vista (which is what I use, I think).

Maybe I need a new computer. :(

Hmm...turns out this computer is using IE8. There's only TLS 1.0 as an option. Guess I'll have to make the leap.

Steve, to reiterate what Lissa has said, you don't need to replace the computer, necessarily. Just install Firefox or Chrome. By and large, a browser is a browser is a browser, so you're not looking at some massive learning-curve. Firefox at least will import your existing favorites/bookmarks.

You can be compliant in five minutes, without the expense of a new PC if you're not ready for one. And frankly a jump to Win8.1 over Vista would introduce a bunch of interface differences anyway, if you're reluctant to get off Internet Explorer.

Even waiting a couple of months (after July 29th) for a new PC with Windows 10 is going to be significantly different in terms of UI. Not quite as different as 8.1, but still very different. (8.1 gets way more abuse than it deserves, but it's still a hard OS to get used to after years or decades of using regular desktop versions of Windows.)

But as Anguish just said Steve, all you need to do is install Firefox or Chrome. The only reason to stick with IE is if it's a workplace system and it's locked down due to a rights issue or dedicated apps that only work on certain versions of IE.

I hope this one and the other volumes of this AP have some really interesting monsters that are not devils or related to hell in any way.

You do realize what this AP is about, yes?

That said, of COURSE we didn't limit ourselves to ONLY devils or Hell-themed stuff. But it's absolutely the strongest theme for the bestiary throughout.

Will there be a map of Vyre (population 17.300) in the Hell´s Rebel´s map-folio? I imagine Kintargo and Cheliax being the other two maps...

Also a "Devils Revisited" Campaign Setting would offer itself later this year. ;-)

The map folio is scheduled, at this time, to have maps of Kintargo, Vyre, and Ravounel (the northwestern Archduchy of Cheliax that includes those two cities). There will NOT be a map of Cheliax in this AP's map folio, although I'd expect one to appear in the next for Hell's Vengeance.

Devils Revisited is very very very very unlikely to happen.

The ONLY reason Demons Revisited happened was because I wanted to write it. Wes is our resident devil, and he's pouring his devil energies into other projects to support the AP. The "Revisited" line was already in semi-retirement when Demons Revisited went on the schedule, and there are no plans to do more books in the line at this point, due to the fact that the revisited books were selling more and more slowly with each one that came out, alas.

Is there any hope of specific half-devil adjustments to the half-fiend template ala Demons Revisited? Even just a blog post or something? Maybe an article in one of the 2 "Hell's ****" APs?

Yeah, seriously, if that's true, then BOOOOOO! I'm another big fan of the Revisited line, and we really kind of need a Devils Revisited for the next two APs (including specific half-devil adjustments.)

Also a book on Qlippoth, but that's another topic for another thread...

Hey, thanks for that "inside info" :o). If you happen to be able to speak to the people in charge of such things at Paizo, do you think you could suggest to them that they (1) produce a free download with a list of the existing archetypes that work for the unchained summoner (and the other new unchained classes) and (2) perhaps also produce a free download with updates/reworkings for those archetypes that don't?

Its pretty obvious to me that the senior staff at Paizo really want to abandon the old APG summoner in gffavour of the new unchained summoner - and to some extent I can sympathise with this as the old version is very unweildy for GMs and also overpowered (IMHO) compared to some other classes. But if that is the plan, then they need to give us the archetypes for the new unchained summoner to help that process.

Just saying..........

I don't think it's all that hard to figure out. "Does Archetype X alter the mechanics underlying the Eidolon?" If yes, then X is not a good fit as written for the Unchained Summoner. If no, then talk to your GM.

My best guess would really only rule out Broodmaster, First Worlder, and Synthesist, along with the Heroes of the Wild's Wild Caller. I would think the other existing archetypes would be fairly usable. First Worlder and Wild Caller would work if Fey and Plant were each defined along the lines of all of the Unchained Summoner's eidolon subtypes.

Ross Byers wrote:
What's the difference between the Heroes of the Wild Wild Caller and the ARG Wild Caller?

The ARG one is a half-elven racial archetype that focuses on summoned animals and beasts, with its eidolon supposed to be more beastly rather than any sort of conventional celestial or fiendish entity. The HotW version is a summoner of plants, with a fully Plant-type Eidolon with different base forms, and even its Summon Monster ability altered into a Summon Nature's Ally one.

The default assumption for Monk is that previous archetypes do not work. House ruling would be required, so talk to your GM.
The Monk is the most radically altered of all of the UnChained! classes right down to it's base chassis. I can't think of any of the archetypes that would work with this new incarnation.

There are a few that could work, if you allow the swap of "ability that is now a ki power that was normally gained at level X" in place of the ki power for that level. The Human Wanderer archetype just swaps out Still Mind and 4 things that are now Ki Powers, so I could see it as pretty easy to house rule for.

Basically, the Variant Multiclassing gives you secondary class features at 3rd, 7th, 11th, 15th, and 19th levels, though you do gain any limitations of a class at 1st level (druid's code, monk's armor restrictions, etc.)

Spoiler:
Cleric grants spontaneous casting and the bonus language, one domain's 1st level power, reduced channeling, and the same domain's 8th level power, spread out over 1st to 19th level. Sorcerer grants the 1st to 15th level Bloodline powers and one bloodline feat spread out over the same 1st to 19th level range.

Charisma-based? Really? It ends up lowering the DC way too much for a CR 16. Astradaemons have a Con-based Devour Soul effect that's along the same lines and it ends up a DC 25. The Plasma Ooze's Engulf has a DC of 33 and it's still the same CR. DC 20 for this is just not nearly good enough for the CR, if you ask me.

Pick up Legendary Games' Mythic Monsters - Giants. It's got a great little section on variant rules to beef up PfRPG giants so they aren't quite what your players might be expecting, including a rule for hurling boulders into a given square as attacks vs. AC 5, rather than as regular ranged attacks,which most giants suck at.

Seriously, for a (sub)type of monsters that every player has seen or fought against time and again like good old giants, a bit of Mythic can be the thing that makes you think twice about them just being old and boring. You never have to deal with Mythic PCs unless you want to, but you can always use Mythic rules against your players...

It would be nice if they announced the Iconics for each AP when they announce the AP itself as well.

But by process of elimination, we know we need an arcane caster, but the fourth could be almost anyone. When was the last time we saw Ezren in an AP, anyway? He'd be my guess for that Arcane spot. Harsk is skill/combat, Imrijka is divine/skill, so maybe a divine/combat specialist? Oloch would have made for a great fit here, but if ACG Iconics aren't eligible, you could make a case for Seelah, even if she's getting a bit overused. Maybe Seltiyel too?

101 New Skill Uses goes with Climb DC = 10 + opponent's BAB, though the target has to be at least 2 sizes larger than you. You provoke an AoO and lose your Dex bonus against the target, and it loses its Dex bonus against your attacks. It can use an attack action to try and throw you off, forcing you to make another Climb check or fall and take appropriate damage.

One of the most well known staples of combat with massive enemies, the ability to climb atop and hang on to them while fighting them, is found no where in the book? Not as a new Climb skill option (which would make the skill more useful) or as a feat?

Both WotC and Paizo lack this mechanic in the game.

Why exactly?!

Rite Publishing's outstanding (imo) release 101 New Skill Uses has an expansion of Climb to cover this, if you're willing to go 3PP.
