Oh, and the new PDF now includes bookmarks in the HUGE spell section of the book for each individual letter of the alphabet to make navigation even more user friendly :)

I was a little worried they didn't make it into this revision when that wasn't mentioned in the backer emails.

Yay, now I don't have to flip through 160 pages to find one spell, even in the pdf version! (Yeah, yeah, Ctrl-F, I know. Still, thanks!)

How hard is that to stat out? Swap out the familiar bonus for a +3 to Disable Device instead.

Now for PFS, then yeah, we need one in this book.

OK, so, let me speculate on the contents of that vermicious release:
Death Worm CR 7/MT 3
Frost Worm CR 15/MT 6
Purple Worm CR 15/MT 6
Tenebrous Worm CR 10/MT 4
Seugathi CR 7/MT 3
Neothelid CR 18/MT 7
Bhole CR 21/MT 9
Worm that Walks CR 17/MT 7... or else a full Mythic template ala Mythic Liches and Vampires

OK, so that's 8, plus maybe a couple of variants. How many more do we need for an actual book, again? Maybe add in the maybe the Slag Worm CR 25/MT 10 (Tome of Horrors Complete) or a Mythic version of The Monarch Worm at CR 28/MT 10 for a sneak preview of the impossible destructive power of a Mythic Spawn of Rovagug.

Vermlek Demons (CR 4/MT 1), perhaps? Or Giant Leeches (CR 3/MT 1)?

If there is going to be a new PDF released, can we please get bookmarks for the spell descriptions by letter, too? 160 pages without any breaks is very difficult to navigate.

?????

(and I mean more than there was in bastards of golarion)

Should there be?

We haven't announced one yet, in any event.

Blood of Darkness. Fetchlings, Dhampirs, Wayangs, and Changelings. Not as much on Dhampirs, but still more for them as player races than Blood of the Night had.

Asking on behalf of one of my players:

Not unarmed, but there is one for any one-handed slashing weapon.

We get the Triaxian Seasonkeeper Druid archetype, as well as a couple of racial traits.

Every race gets 2 traits; it's just the Androids that get 5 racial feats instead of an archetype.

The names pretty well sum up their abilities: Cyber-Soldier (Fighter), Iron Priest (Cleric), Numerian Scavenger (Rogue), Savage Technologist (Barbarian), and Techslinger (Gunslinger).

Savage Technologist is kind of weird as their rage doesn't add to Str and Con, but Str and Dex. Also they get abilities when dual-wielding sword and gun.

And James, please tell me you're in the midst of writing Ultimate Technology. This appetizer is nowhere near close to enough.

Still just 4 + Int mod for SP. Only good Ref saves, and Charmed Life is basically a weak version of Divine Grace, limited to a few uses per day and only then as an immediate action.

I just got my email 2 minutes ago. :D

Give it time.

Edit: OK, so... Pummeling Style basically fixes some of the issues with Monks. It's essentially Clustered Shot for Flurry attacks, but better. Any one critical threat during it can make the whole thing a critical hit, if confirmed.

And then there's Pummeling Charge. So Monks basically have access to Pounce now, though it all has to be directed against one target.

The sad reality of the Cult of the Dawnflower is that it's slowly being turned and twisted into a method for conquest and war by Qadira and the Padishah Empire of Kelesh. There might end up being a HUGE SCHISM in the church of Sarenrae because of this.

I think the real question is who or what will take advantage of the schism and impersonate Sarenrae to lead certain members of the cult astray. Demon, Devil, Daemon... Anybody want to start a pool on the likely suspect?

Also, exactly how many kukris would Zadim need to rectify the problem?

Easy enough to advance a Flumph up to size 'rather quite a bit larger than Gargantuan', and give it the half-celestial, half-dragon, celestial, axiomatic, advanced, mythic and kaiju templates/subtypes.

If you've got the Advanced Bestiary or perhaps some sort of Dreamscarred Press psionic bestiary (assuming such a thing exists), the Flumph Overlord Mothership would probably have some sort of Psionic Creature template as well...

"That's no moon..."

Dreamscarred Press's Psionic Bestiary was released a few months ago as a completed product, but it really only has one template appropriate for this. Marked One, a +3 CR template that would require a tattooed flumph obsessed with law and order... which kind of fits flumphs anyway.

You have to overlook a RAW limitation that the template can only be applied to humanoids, but still, a flumph obsessed with imposing order and harmony while expanding its psionic prowess sounds like a good trait for the Overlord to have.

The only one I see at first glance in Inner Sea Gods' Appendix is Apsu, the patron of metallic dragons. He has bite and quarterstaff as his favored weapons.

Also Dahak, the patron of the chromatic dragons. Bite and whip for him.

Personally I'd find the symmetry of Damiel also being trans appropriate, retcon or not. Just think about what their meeting would be like. Elf/Dwarf, male/female, the two of them would make for a fascinating character study.

I don't want to create work for the Design Team, but I have what I think is a cool Blog Post for after the book is released and the previews are over.

A blog article that explains what criteria they would place on a spell to make it a "shaman spell", and so on for other classes that get their own spell lists.

That way, they're not caught up trying to retrofit a lot of older material from other product lines, but they give some advice to GMs who want to make those decisions for themselves. Like what exactly is the difference between most a cleric/druid spell that is good for the shaman versus one that is not appropriate. I often advocate that GMs should be unafraid to make those determinations (and still do), but some guidelines never hurt.

You'd probably have disclaimer it was not valid for PFS (which require uniform rulings), but it would give some pointers for the folks at home.

Just a passing thought.

Exactly what we need, Jim. This would answer every issue I have right now.

Am I the only one who is a little sad to hear that the Shaman got her own spell list? My reasoning is, if the class was to be allowed to choose spells from other lists, then spells from many of the Player Companions, Campaign Setting books, etc, would all be fair game. With the Shaman having a custom spell list, we won't be able to pick interesting spells from those books unless the developers specifically included them in the list. I'm sure in future books, spells will have things like "Shaman 3" right next to the Cleric and Witch in the spell description, but it severely limits the CURRENT spells that can be used, that's all.

Overall, though, I'm excited to see the Shaman in the final book!

It also really limits 3rd party usage as well. Deep Magic is going to need an update, at the very least.

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.

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.

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.

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.
