Woo hoo! This is a great Kickstarter for a really cool book!
It will be available in D&D 5E and Pathfinder RPG versions, and more than 700 people have jumped in so far ... but that's the rub ...
Currently, the number of D&D 5E backers is FAR exceeding the number of Pathfinder RPG backers!!! Not sure why, because we all know there are literally legions of loyal Pathfinder RPG players out there!
So, to all the Pathfinder fans out there that haven't jumped on board yet ... come on gang! By the time this thing is over (on Halloween, of course!) let's make sure the number of Pathfinder backers matches (or, heck, even exceeds) the D&D 5E backers!!! No edition war nonsense of course (they're both great games), just some good old fashioned, healthy competition :)
It seems like a case of a poorly worded ability. I recommend getting in touch with the folks at Deamscarred and asking them. They're a good, reputable company, I'm sure they'll let you know if you're reading it correctly or if they need to clarify the ability.
In fact, why not post this question in the actual Paths of War product forum right here on Paizo.com?
More of the quality classes you've been publishing (The Trickster and the Priest knocked it out of the ballpark). Maybe a hardback with the original classes you've already published along with a half dozen or more added to it.
Sounds like an expanded and updated New Paths Compendium!
It's kind of like a little kid being told by his parents that they will be having either vegetable stew or liver and onions for dinner, and they are going to let the kid choose which. The kid can take or leave veggie stew but he HATES liver and onions with a passion, and would sooner eat broken glass.
The kid tells his parents what he really wants is pizza. Sorry, they say, not tonight - we are having vegetable stew or liver and onions, those are your two choices. If you don't want to pick, we'll decide and you'll just eat what we make.
Instead of picking the veggie soup, which he at least can tolerate, and therefore eliminate the possibility of being forced to eat something he absolutely despises, the kid decides to stick to his (somewhat naive) guns and proudly declares that he votes for pizza anyway!
The kid of course does not get pizza and might end up being forced to choke down something truly heinous.
How smart was the kid?
The Demon Cults & Secret Societies kickstarter (and not 'lickstarter' :) is humming along nicely
However, I noticed something just now. In each category (PDF, Print, deluxe edition etc), the 5E version is outpacing the Pathfinder version!
I guess what I'm saying is ...
Come on Pathfinder fans, REPRESENT!!!!
Spread the word and let's equal out those numbers! :)
Just in time for Halloween!
Cults and secret societies rife with true villainy, fiendish plots, blackhearted new magic, detailed cultists, and high priests!
Demon Cults & Secret Societies Lickstarter is Live!
Check it out today!!!
Great list!I feel compelled to point out that some of those are already in the New Paths Compendium (white necromancer, shaman, spell-less ranger, etc.) but otherwise great list!!
New Path Compendium 2, with maybe more archetypes and such using some of the newer Pathfinder books options, and overall just more variation
Oh, nice!What about a newly expanded and updated New Path Compendium, featuring everything you listed, PLUS the current classes and options ... and maybe even a bunch of brand-new classes and options ... maybe even as an awesome, full-color hardcover!
Hey, a boy can dream :)
Kind like Paizo's Inner Sea Gods ... that would be pretty cool, actually!
Hey everyone, I received a PM from someone who recently purchased The Priest. He was commenting on how much he liked the improvements to the Priest's Channel Energy ability compared to the Cleric's. He also said he was surprised that very few people have actually commented on the Priest's improved Channel Energy and wondered if most folks simply hadn't noticed the improvements.
I hadn't thought about it up until now, but he might be right. The improvements are subtle and probably easy to overlook when reading the ability, but they are pretty powerful in actual play. The really do make Channeling more worthwhile and worth actually doing at the table and even in the middle of combat, especially as the Priest gains levels.
Anyway, I just thought it was an interesting observation :)

Agreed. The only thing more embarrassing and, quite honestly, absolutely disgraceful than the way Trump behaved *during* the debate is the way Trump has out and out lied (to a ridiculous and mind-numbing degree), complained, whined, deflected, and pointed blame in very conceivable direction *after* the debate.
This is the first time in my life I am actually terrified of the unmitigated disaster a candidate getting elected would be. The fact that he has gotten this far, frankly, depresses the hell out of me.
Cheese?!?!?!!!??!! Destroyer is a great album!!
Awesome that Rush was your first concert. I've seen them many tomes over the years - such a great band!

Ha! As it turns out, about 70 gp is what lands on the ground!
Starting Wealth: 2d6 × 10 gp (average 70 gp).
We'll be sure to get that added to the PDF asap :)
Yep. The great Gygax, along with most other gamers of the time, were huge fans of wargaming, and played on large sand tables. Things like troop movement and weapon spreads were measured in inches on the sand table. In fact, this is where the term "sandbox" comes from (as in, the opposite of a railroad type of campaign). D&D grew out of this and is why early editions of the game maintained measurement in inches.
If you really want to learn more about the early history of D&D and the people, games, books, and environment that created D&D, I highly recommend two books:
Playing at the World by Jon Peterson and Empire of Imagination: Gary Gygax and the Birth of Dungeons & Dragons by Michael Witwer
Here is an AWESOME video shot by Jon Peterson that literally takes you to the town of Lake Geneva where Gygax lived, created the game, and where TSR was located. You get to see the location of the first GenCon and it even takes you into the Gygax home and down into Gygax's basment where they have a recreation of Gygax's sand table. Truly an amazing video!
I've been on a kick lately of reading about the history of D&D and RPG gaming.
So far, I've read (and highly recommend):
I've heard (and therefore have ordered) good things about Of Dice and Men: The Story of Dungeons & Dragons and the People Who Play It by David M. Ewalt
Are there any other really good histories of D&D and RPG gaming anyone can recommend?
The Priest is considered to have prepared the appropriate cure or inflict spell in addition to the spells he prepares due to his level, very much like an Oracle (note the bold portion in the text you quoted above).
The cure or inflict spells aren't 'swapping out' like a cleric. Remember that the Priest's casting mechanic is similar to the Arcanist, although modified somewhat. The Priest prepares his spells each day, choosing from the full Cleric/Oracle spell list just like a Cleric. However, the Priest then can spontaneously cast any of those spells he has prepared, in any order and/or number of times, as long as he has spell slots available, just like an Oracle.
Allowing the Priest to have those cure or inflict spells prepared as bonus spells simply means he has them available to cast if/when needed.
So, at each spell level, a Priest prepares the number of spells as indicated on the 'Priest Spells Prepared' table. He also prepares the appropriate cure or inflict spell as an additional bonus spell, and 1 or 2 bonus domain spells. He is still limited to the number of spells he can cast each day, as shown on the 'Spells per Day' table
Does that help?
Thank you sir!

For that matter, many of the writers and designers from the larger 3PP companies also do work for Paizo (and Wizards of the Coast).
It's almost like saying if Jason Buhlman or James Jacobs wrote or designed something for a 3PP, suddenly it's not good enough ...
Possible typo, check the 20th level Priest Spells Prepared table. From 19th level to 20th level we somehow lose one domain spell of 8th level spells.
No, no. You see, as a divine representative of the Gods within the mortal realm, the Priest must make certain sacrifices as he approaches the highest levels of ...
OK, yeah - that's a typo. It should absolutely be 4+2 instead of 4+1.
We'll get that fixed up post haste!
