This looks like it's going to be a fantastic project.
Yes this really is one of my personal fantasies come true. Get all the artist and writers I like to make the craziest monsters they can think of. I can't wait to see what people like John Wick and Clinton Boomer are going to make. This is going to be so much fun.
I noticed that you've already reached a reward goal. Is there anyway I can secure one of the limited pledge levels by paying before the kickstarter starts? I really don't want to miss out. Do you have a set day the KS begins?
We have not started the Kickstarter yet so we haven't reached any goals yet. There are going to be more than enough offers for people to get what they want so don't worry. At a minimum all you need to spend is $10 and you get all the coolness in PDF format. But we will make a HUGE announce went we start this.
DM Pendin Fust wrote:
It looks as though this is meant to be mainly B & W based on the reward levels?
Basically it is meant to be a full color PDF with tons of very cool monsters for only $10. We give the option for B&W and color printed copies for those who want a printed version. For me personally, I would purchase the PDF version since my bookshelves are already over flowing with books and game products.
DM Pendin Fust wrote:
Can you explain Print on Demand?
Sure. Print on Demand (POD) is printing one off instead of during full print runs of a project. The reason for it, most print runs need to be at least 2,500 copies before the price is at a reasonable price to sell. But POD has made it possible to do one off printing were you can do short print runs for a very reasonable price. Hope this helps.

I mean no disrespect sir, however I confess that I got somewhat lost in both your post (above) and on the page for Codex Torment. Any chance you could break it down and explain the whole thing a bit more?
Sure, basically put Codex: Torment is a monster compilation sourcebook being created by the top names in 3PP for Pathfinder materials as a kickstarter. These will all be completely original and ALL NEW monsters created from the writers with full color artwork. This is the first time there has every been a kickstarter or joint 3PP project ever done like this. Hope this helps.
Since I am such a big fan of Fred Hick and his highly successful Fate Core kickstarter I decided to take a page out of his book and create a $10 reward level that will include digital copies of all the threshold goals AND expansions funded by this kickstarter campaign. I think there are fans of Pathfinder who want cool stuff for a reasonable price and $10 for a kickstarter with awesome monsters created by many of the most popular and talented 3PP AND Paizo employees on the market can only be a good thing. As I have said before, we are still working out the kinks of this kickstarter but I want to make sure everyone can support AND get cool stuff. Keep up to date with the Codex Torment kick here!
By the way if there is ANYTHING that you would like to see in the Codex: Torment, please let it be known by posting to this thread. Thanks!
@LMPjr007: Hmmm.....Their cover artwork is a few steps down from PF stuff. Unless their internal artwork is much better, doesn't look like what I'm looking for.
I find that interesting since many of the artist we worked on this line with NOW work for Paizo doing artwork. But it is a matter of taste, so I hope you find what you are looking for.
LPJ Design has a full line of monsters in their Monsters of NeoExodus that artistically are as good as any from Paizo's artwork and game mechanically even better. You can see the full line and the reviews for the products here!

Hi Daniel, I am Louis Porter Jr owner of LPJ Design. We offered D20pfsrd the original Machinesmith PDF that we did so they could place it up on the site for people to use evaluate and comment on. LPJ Design didn't offer them the follow up products for Machinesmith because we thought it was reasonable to have people pay for the add-ons to the base class we gave away for free. I mean we still have to pay all the writers and artists who worked on these projects. I mean we are a business and if we give away everything for free, we will be out of business. Doesn't that seem reasonable to you? Thanks for the interest in the Machinesmith and the support.

Some things happened in the middle of the process that were never officially announced. It isn't my story to tell, so that is all I will say. Either way, it began as Tony's project, and it ended as Tony's project.
BINGO!!! This is what I mentioned also.
I would just consider this KS over and if someone else happens to pick it up I suggest supporting it then. No need to bad mouth people who didn't live up to some exceptions compared to of KS. Consider this a "trial by fire" event when it didn't work out for them, but they always get another chance to do this right and get the success they really hope for.
Quite the bold claim. How are you going to back it up?
As my father would say: It ain't bragging if it is true...
But let me offer you this: Send me your email and I will send you a free copy of Adventure Path Iconics: Path of Undeath and you can get a look at the Khymer in action with the other six races from the upcoming Obsidian Apocalypse. If you don't like them well it did cost you anything. If you like them, you got a free product and you can support Obsidian Apocalypse when it comes out later this month. This is a perfect win-win. Does this sound reasonable to you?
What a lot of people don't know is that certain things going on behind the scenes with this kickstarter I know because I spoke to them about possibly acquiring this for our upcoming Obsidian Apocalypse campaign setting. I have not heard back from them since my initial offer was placed with them but I expect to hear something back now that this Kickstarter is over.

When does it come out and what's the price tag? I'm about to go crash before college in a few hours, but I'm going to check back later and find out so I can save up the cash to buy it! *Khymer form bubbles in anticipation*
We were "hoping" to release it by Halloween, so I am now saying before Thanksgiving. The full book is going to be 200 pages and the PDF will be $10.99, while I am still not sure about he color POD version. I would like to think it would be $29.99 but don't hold that to me because it could be cheaper OR more expensive. We will see.
And the Khymer are the most interesting race EVER created for Pathfinder. Period. There is NO debate on this point. I will challenge any 3PP or Paizo to make a race and cool and bad ass as them. They ARE amazing and interesting and they fit perfectly for the Obsidian Apocalypse setting.

Obsidian Twilight is now Obsidian Apocalypse and we built in from the ground up. New artwork, new writers including JP Chapleau, Kalyna Conrad, Eric Hindley, Jeff Lee, Owen K.C. Stephens, Richard Pett, Rich Redman and myself; over 80 feats and over 95 spells; New material with four template campaigns that you can use in ANY Pathfinder setting. If you liked Obsidian Twilight with all it's issue and flaws, then you will absolutely LOVE Obsidian Apocalypse.
From LPJ Designs I have Neo-Exodus. To me it has the feel of a Fantasy version of Babylon 5. Great nations held together by a sort of United Nations style Senate, moving towards the brink of war. An Ancient evil lurking in the shadows manipulating events, a Black Clothed Psichic police force.
Babylon 5 was exactly what feel were were going for with NeoExodus.
Outside those two I've heard some good things about Midgarde but I haven't read anything myself and I am looking forward to the release of Obsidian Apocalypse (I do have the previous version and it's pretty cool but I'm biting my nails waiting for the new version. Think of it as Ravenloft meets Darksun)
Just to keep you informed, we are just finishing up the last bits of Obsidian Apocalypse and I "hoped" to release it on Halloween, but it looks like 1st or 2nd week for the PDF release.
Black Star Studios is working on the Shadowlands Campaign Setting. Not sure when it'll hit shelves.
This is the one I am VERY interested in seeing. Loved the concept and can't wait to see more of it.
+1 what ShadowcatX said - The Unhallowed would probably be funded with stretchgoals et al, had the guys kept up the updating/buzz and momentum from the start of the campaign. Pity, but at least they're probably trying again.
Let's just say this might be changing for reasons they may be announcing soon.
What monsters / dangers would you like to see in the upcoming Codex: Torment 3PP Monster Sourcebook Kickstarter?
Was there every a theme decided for this? or is it anything goes?
Anything goes is the focus we have given to all the writers. They are completely free to make and create any type of monster, template, feat, spell, poison, trap and/or disease they can come up with. They can connect them to a setting of just something for a generic setting. We are just focused on making the most interesting gaming monster and material possible. So if you have a crazy idea, do be afraid to tossing it out to us.
What monsters / dangers would you like to see in the upcoming Codex: Torment 3PP Monster Sourcebook Kickstarter?
We started t a thread like this months ago when we were talking to people on doing something like this. Since we are planning for the Codex: Torment to start in January of 2014 I wanted to make sure everyone had their chance to speak up on what they wanted to see in a monster sourcebook. Better still I wanted to use this thread to keep all the cool stuff we are planning for this kickstarter in one place. So here we go and as always, thanks for your support.
And by the way here is the official page for Codex: Torment.
Here's some advice that I got from Rite Publishing that is just plain smart: Start talking about your kickstarter at least a month before you go live with it. That gives you enough time to build interest in it, so on the first day it start you might be able to reach you goal amount or get some place very close to that.
Not sure if this has already been done up and ready to go, but an infernal bound witch from Knotty-Works' The Witch.
For these series we normally only use material strictly out of the Core Rulebook and the races from the NeoExodus Campaign Setting. And since the material from the core rulebook is OGL and the races of NeoExodus are available to be seen at D20pfsrd.com we make it that you don't need purchase any additional material to use this product in your adventure paths or home games.
If you are interested in adding some psionics to your horror campaigns (It is Halloween season after all) you might want to check out Adventure Path Iconics: Path of Undeath (PFRPG) with the the race called the Khymer. Here is a little background about them:
The khymer are descendants of those killed, or at least physically destroyed, by the meteor that struck Abaddon. The necromantic radiation emanating from the blast had many long-lasting effects on Abaddon and its people. For the inhabitants of one city, though, it meant liquefaction followed by mingling with the ravening light. This process infused the liquid remains with negative energy, which coupled with the latent remnants of that people’s native psionic abilities.
Louis Porter Jr. Design has released its newest product, Adventure Path Iconics for the Pathfinder the gothic and horror-themed adventure path and the Obsidian Apocalypse (PFRPG) campaign setting at RPGNow.com and DriveThruRPG.com. Here is information on this product:
This is the next installment of our Adventure Path Iconics line, and the seven characters herein are specifically designed for play in the Obsidian Apocalypse campaign setting and the gothic and horror-themed Adventure Path. Each character has a full stat block, including campaign traits, a detailed background and personality, and advice on advancement through 4th level. Find one that suits you and you’re ready to play. These characters have been built using a 20-point buy, as many Pathfinder players and GMs prefer it. However, each comes with instructions on how to adjust the stats to a 15-point buy, should your GM wish to use the standard for Paizo’s adventure paths. If your group enjoys an epic fantasy feel for their characters, then adjustments up to a 25-point buy are also available. Whatever your style of play, just a few minor tweaks will have you ready to go.
The iconic consist of seven unique races from the Obsidian Apocalypse campaign setting such as:
• Exalted: The exalted are the direct offspring of angelic outsiders mated with the humans of Abaddon. The unique circumstances of Abaddon make this pairing a more common event than it might be in other parts of the multiverse. The angels here are thrust into closer contact with mortals than they are used to, cut off from the gods and entities that they serve and forced to make new lives for themselves.
• Genesai: Genesai are the result of demonic outsiders mating with angelic outsiders, defying all that both sides of the eternal conflict between good and evil consider inviolate. In other worlds and planes of existence, this pairing might be all but unthinkable, but the nature of Abaddon as a “planar trap” throws these opposites together far more often than elsewhere. Whatever the agents of good and evil have against reach other, as outsiders they at least share the same origin.
• Harrowed: The harrowed are one of the most despised and feared races of Abaddon. They are no less than the result of the unholy and abominable union between mortal humanoids and the foul undead. To the subjugated populace, the very existence of the harrowed is a constant reminder of their undead overlords who have taken over Abaddon. These creatures are royal bastards, neither fully mortal nor fully undead, caught between the two worlds.
• Infernals: Infernals are the offspring of demonic outsiders and humanity upon Abaddon or the result of a tainted bloodline throwing up a child bearing the mark of past transgressions of natural law. Infernals are relatively common on Abaddon, given the nature of the world as a “planar trap” and the natural proclivities of the demons who find themselves here, as they are trapped, frustrated, and have only a few playthings to assuage their boredom.
• Khymer: The khymer are descendants of those killed, or at least physically destroyed, by the meteor that struck Abaddon. The necromantic radiation emanating from the blast had many long-lasting effects on Abaddon and its people. For the inhabitants of one city, though, it meant liquefaction followed by mingling with the ravening light. This process infused the liquid remains with negative energy, which coupled with the latent remnants of that people’s native psionic abilities.
• Lykian: Abaddon’s werewolf lycanthropes, most commonly called lykians, are one of the most unusual residents of the world. Unlike standard lycanthropes, lykians are born as lycanthropes. They do not suffer from the lycanthropic disease; instead, they are considered a separate humanoid race with the shapechanger subtype. Before the apocalypse, many carried the curse of lycanthropy, but due to unknown, powerful forces of magic, the curse took on a new form from which the lykians have evolved directly. Lykians, unlike lycanthropes, have only one physical form, despite their shapechanger subtype. They are considered by many to be extremely bestial, hostile, and brutish, like their canine lineage. Their primal nature often usurps and controls their cognitive and reasoning abilities.
• Osirian: According to ancient lore, the osirians were the first intelligent species to emerge on Abaddon, chosen by the gods to be their first creation on this world. They were, and are, a regal and proficient people famed for their skill with their hands and their swiftness, as dangerous archers and fencers and makers of technical wonders and fine crafts.
These iconic consist of:
Not only do NeoExodus and Obsidian Apocalypse use psionic rule set, the folk at Dreamscarred Press ACTUALLY wrote those sections for us. That was very important to me if we were going to support psionics in Pathfinder.

Hard cover, maybe not. 400+ page is a LOT of words. But I can possibly, maybe, all most say it could happen that we were creating and finishing Xao: Island of Iron and Silk. Maybe.
So after months of discussion and conversations with the other members of LPJ Design, we have decided to put the races for the NeoExodus: A House Divided campaign setting online at D20opfsrd.com as content you can see and use, completely for free.
The reason for us doing this came done to the simple idea of, we believele NeoExodus is the most innovative 3PP campaign setting on the market today. We also know what makes NeoExodus so good is that it’s not attempting to be a traditional fantasy setting that you have played in time after time after time again. We made NeoExodus to be something that was completely unique and that started first and foremost with the races we created. The nine races that were created (Cavian, Cynean, Dalrean, Enuka, Gevet, Kalisan, P’Tan, Prymidian and Sasori) really set the tone of what made this world and setting wholly different. Being so singular of a fantasy setting, that may have scared some potential players off without knowing and understanding how they could find a NeoExodus race similar to a typical fantasy race they are used to play. The LPJ Design members knew that the NeoExodus races, while unique, had their own iconic roles to play and would relate well to the players. So we thought it would be best to share the experience of NeoExodus with our races via the already powerful and impressive D20pfsrd.com. It was a match made in heaven actually..
We expect that these NeoExodus races will be online in the very near future. You will be able to check out what we have created and how you can incorporate those races and concepts that into your home game. As always. I want to thank you for your support of LPJ Design and you get many years of enjoyment using and playing with our NeoExodus races.
Looks like Paizo forget to mention our two releases: Adventure Path Iconics: Path of Pirates (PFRPG) and Adventure Path Iconics: Path of the Winter (PFRPG), which received a 5-star review. I guess the folk at Paizo were so busy it was a oversight. Enjoy!
Excellent. Now I feel even better supporting this kickstarter!

Just wondering but has this issue settled? Are you guys going to use Dreamscarred Press Psionics system or are you going to make one of your own?
