Skeleton and zombie are examples of things that are vaguely human-shaped. I don't see any indication the spell specifically overrides the rules about templates.

Of course, it's a weird rule to begin with. You can't polymorph into polar bears, for instance.

It has the stats of an advanced bear, but it's not "really" an advanced bear, so I think a case could be made for RAW allowing it.

But yeah, unclear, as are the Undead Anatomy spells.

I take it that the "caller in darkness" is a mythos based creature, correct?

I don't believe so. I think it's unique to D&D.

To the best of my knowledge, it originates in 3.5's Expanded Psionics Handbook (or 3.0's Psionics Handbook... can't remember which).

Further back than that. 2e Dark Sun's box set, City by the Silt Sea. Made up of thousands of minds trapped in a psychic storm on the Ethereal Plane, souls that died in terror as the other Sorcerer-Kings assaulted their city to stop the ascension of Dregoth into a full 30th level dragon.

Dark Sun fans will know what all of that meant.

Paizo doesn't have any support for psionics. Period. The designers and dvelopers have never been fans of the power points system, so they don't support it.

Dreamscarred Press, a third party publisher, has updated 3.x D&D-style psionics into (among other books), Ultimate Psionics. If you're a fan of the 3.x mechanics, this is the way to go (in my humble opinion.)

Paio just released (last month at GenCon) a psychic-style book called Occult Adventures. It covers many of the same general topics as psionics, but in a completely different mechanical manner. I'm not a fan of most of it, other than the Kineticist class, but it has quite a few fans.

Do you have any favorites?

I don't like the Occult approach at all. Period. Every single monster in the book will take reworking with psionics before I can call any of them a "favorite". As it sits, this book is just source material for conversions.

That being said, the prana ghost template lets you have "ghosts" that don't have to change their alignments. That's something we've needed in the game for a long time now.

Prism dragons are not a true, 12-age category dragon. You can maybe reverse engineer the given stats to create one, as it has a 20d6 breath weapon, so maybe this is an Ancient (category 10) one?

Liavaran dreamers are descendants of a failed colony of Brethedans, now drifting along Liavara's ley lines as they dream... unless you're dumb enough to wake them up. Then they get nasty.

Color me shocked to get my shipping email at what was 7:30 Paizo time.

And color me, at least at first glance,

Spoiler:
as severely disappointed in the mechanics for psychic magic for the monsters in this book. I thought the whole reason behind the Occult approach over psionics was a general dislike amongst the Paizo developers for points-based "magic" systems.

The monsters in this book have points-based psychic magic.

Yes, it's called "psychic energy", and it's a much less discrete, more big chunk-style approach to it, but it's still just a points system.

I really hope one of the developers can explain the reasoning behind this, because right now I'm just massively disappointed. It really feels either disingenuous or else glaringly inconsistent.

It should be fast enough.

The difference between the i5 and i7 is negligable for ordinary use, whereas the difference between a spinning hard disk and an SSD can be an order of magnitude.

You could always just buy an SSD upgrade kit for your son's laptop if you don't want to just go buy a whole new laptop. True, the cloning process can be a bit intimidating, but it's doable.

Amazon has SSD kits with just the cable and software for $25, or with Kingston 240 or 480 GB SSDs for $95/$180. It's not the greatest brand of drive but it's serviceable.

Edit: It might also have something to do with how much RAM the two PCs have. 4 GB just isn't really enough for any system where you're going to have multiple large PDFs open, at least from my experience.

We don't really need a book of templates that badly. There's already the PfRPG version of Green Ronin's Advanced Bestiary. I mean, more would always be nice, but we do have the one. (No, it's not actual Paizo-published, but the original d20 version was the single most used OGL book in the history of the APs, AFAIK.)

NPC Codex 2 would be nice, just for stat blocks for higher level Unchained Summoners and their eidolons.

Ultimate Planets I think can wait until we get a hardback at least touching on the other continents of Golarion, at least a little. Maybe 64 pages each for Garund, Casmaron, and Arcadia, then 32 pages each on the ruins of Azlant and Sarusan, making for a 256 page hardback.

Unless or until we get an actual Garund book from Paizo, this is also fairly useful for figuring out what you're going to throw at PCs who want to venture off the bottom edge of the Inner Sea map.

I love Dreamscarred Psionics, so I would honestly be annoyed if Paizo just tried to rehash 3.5 psionics into a new pathfinder book. Occult doesn't step on anyone's toes (mostly), and creates new material that can stand alongside Dreamscarred Press's work on psionics.

The reusing the attack and defense names is stepping on toes, at least from my POV. A very minor overstep, but still, a little bit of a sore point.

Here's something that's been bugging me for a while. Why in the world did they choose to use psionics in this book? You'd think, with so much talk of not using psionics they'd at least think up a new name for what's been a power in Psionics books for years(like Ego Whip).

It just doesn't make sense. Paizo should be able to do better than copy/edit/paste.

I think it is because these and the other undercastable spells have been a thing since 1ed. D&D namewise. Nostalgia is a powerful tool nowadays.
Yes. I know it was for me, when I was going through the playtest and read those I grinned. Psionics has always been a point based thing back to first edition - so they made it "vancian" and I'm OK with that, but having names that were classic helped the thing feel connected, emotionally.

And for some of us who are point-based psionics fans, it's honestly a little... insulting, or irritating, or something. A negative feeling, whatever it manifests as. Dishonest, I guess.

I mean, I could accept "psionics is psionics, occult is occult, two totally different systems altogether", but this "none of the decision-makers like this mechanics system regardless of if it's the way it's always been done or not and we're using a new way of covering the same area in a totally different way mechanically" is, at least from a certain point of view, kind of the whole reason Pathfinder exists as its own game.

It just feels a bit dishonest or maybe a little bit hypocritical, not to any meaningful degree, but still, not something I'm entirely ok with. I'm not 100% on this book, or its approach.

Friendlyfish, if Paizo doesn't release support for Mythic and Occult classes then Legendary Games likely will. Mythic fans already have PDFs of 3 hardbacks' worth of Mythic support (including Dreamscarred working with them on the Overmind path for psionics), and the-gods-of-shipping-and-customs willing, those of us who sprung for the hardbacks in the Kickstarter will soon have the physical books as well.

It would be nice to see right from Paizo, but I suspect Mythic Occult support will exist either way.

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.)

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).

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.

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?

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.

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.

Has anyone figured out which, if any, existing archetypes will work with the unchained versions of the classes? I'm considering an underfoot adept / manoeuvre master for a potential upcoming giantslayer game, and I'm curious if I can do that with the unchained monk.
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.

Wait a minute. Was there never a backer PDF sent out for proofreading? You're just going to print right away without backer proofreading, i.e., the issues with Deep Magic all over again?

I mean, I get the "gotta print now to make GenCon" crunch, but I'm honestly disappointed.

Jason, what about the (apparently) missing page in the Monster Manual PDF? It goes page iv with a left margin, page v with a right margin, then right to page 1 with a right margin. Is there just a missing page in the pdf or what?
