I'm going to recommend you look over Endzeitgeist's reviews of 3rd party materials. Everyone is a bit biased on their personal preference- he's a pretty solid centerline voice though.

A thousand times this!

You can't go wrong with Endzeitgeist's reviews. In fact, he recently released his "Best of 2015" list!

Is anyone else having trouble with the trading system? I keep putting up one of my events for a trade, and every time I come back it is no longer listed (this has happened about 2 or 3 times). Am I misunderstanding the system?

I'm having the same issue! I actually started a thread on this topic and Sara Marie said she's asked the Tech Team to look into it ...

Fair enough, but judging from many of the posts in this thread, others are indeed interested in non Paizo material as well as Paizo.

I think mentions of non Paizo classes are kind of inevitable ...

As for Spiderman's general popularity levels, don't forget he appeared regularly on the kids show Electric Company.

He did indeed!!!

In fact, that's one of the things that helped me learn to read as a little kid. Remember, Spider Man never spoke out loud on the Electric Company - everything he said was shown in a cartoon talk bubble ... you had to read it to know what he was saying. My mom would sit with me while I watched and read what Spidey said. Slowly but surely, she'd start having me try to read them myself, which I would grudgingly do because I so badly wanted to know what he was saying.

So, Spider Man helped me learn to read when I was a little kid :)

Here's one to check out!

I tend to agree that Iron Man (prior to the movies and Robert Downey Jr. of course) was less well known outside the comic fan base.

I'd say the most widely recognizable characters prior to the movies were *definitely* Spider Man at the top of the list ... and then probably characters like the Hulk, Fantastic Four, maybe Captain America and the X-Men.

But Spider Man is absolutely the most widely know character to the general public (at least, he was before the popularity of the MCU movies)

Non-spellcasting shapechanger. Barbarian/Druid/Lycanthrope? hybrid.

The game has a way to make almost any concept or trope work so far: S Holmes (Investigator, Master Spy), Captain America (Brawler Sheld dude), Achilles (Destined Bloodrager) etc. for example.

But there is no way to make a non-casting full BAB shapechanger.

If you are OK with non Paizo material, might I suggest checking out the Skin Changer in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press

The Skin Changer is an alternate of the popular Spell-less Ranger class, so it is indeed a full BAB, non-spellcasting shapechanger :)

From Endzeitgeist' review:
"The Spell-less ranger also gets a variant class herein, the skin-changer - this one's interesting: Learning to change into the forms and animals and specializes in better natural attacks. No animal companion, though, and a different list of talents. The skin-changer also gets natural armor etc. - per se a concept none too complex in what it tries to do, but remains very evocative in its versatile options - the variant class remains one of the more iconic ones I've seen and makes for a great addition - once again - fine work indeed!"

From a Drivethru RPG review
"There is also a variant that was released with this book called the Skin Changer and it is one that I have been wanting to try out so badly. This variant trades out the favored enemy, combat style, and animal companion of a Spell-less Ranger with the ability to essentially wild shape into animals that scales like a druid so it actually feels pretty balanced and a ton of fun if you are into playing a shifter without contracting a terrible were- disease."

You really should combine Open Design and Kobold Press, since they are (and always have been) the same company ...

I'm still trying to decide what to combine, and what not to combine. Should Path of War Expanded and Path of War Expanded - Work in Progress be combined? What about things like The Book of Heroic Races Compendium and the individual releases that combines? [At least, I think there were individual releases.] What about Strange Magic and its contents, which I think have had three or four different versions? And I'm still not sure exactly what to do about OWC/SGG/RGG.

I'm looking for suggestions. And I'm strongly leaning towards combining Open Design and Kobold Quarterly. I have to figure out how to do it cleanly without damaging the integrity of the data.

Open Design and Kobold Press are the same company, so I think combining them is absolutely the right thing. Kobold Quarterly was never the name of the company - it was the popular magazine that Kobold Press/Open Design produced ...

Yeah? I see it as nothing else but a cash grab to bank in on 40+ years of nostalgia in most adults living today.

I was shocked more at your "It probably won't even dent the box office." comment. Most knowledgeable people I've heard feel the Jungle Book will make a massive amount of money and will most likely even get nominated for some big awards.

Claxon, you should check out the Theurge! Although the class does get some additional abilities and class synergies, what you describe is more or less how the class works

Liberty's Edge

I can absolutely help!

Check out the Theurge class in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press!!! It's *exactly* what your are describing!

A few quotes from the various reviews:

"The Theurge is, in my opinion, a long needed addition to the game. The use of a "Prayer Book" elegantly handles the balance issues of giving a single class access to effectively every spell in the game."

"The Theurge! Oh my! Basically, this is a normal class version of the Mystic Theurge. You get both divine and arcane spellcasting progression, with both sides having halved spells per day. Additionally, each set of spellcasting uses a different ability score for save DCs. This Theurge has a lot of versatility, and can bring a lot of tools to any party."

"The Theurge is an amazing spellcaster that allows you to cast divine and arcane spells right from the get go, without having to make that climb into Paizo’s Mystic Theurge prestige class. Well fear no longer, because the Theurge can do that from level 1 and can even cast two spells at the same time given that one is arcane and one is divine. Their only downfall is how many spells per day they can actually pull off but then again, if they could cast all day like other classes, then it would be broken and probably banned from tables so I find it very balanced in that fact."

Crystal, amethyst, sapphire, emerald, topaz, and the Ruby Dragon Sardior himself - gem dragons have been part of D&D since the earliest days.

Ed Greenwood says: "There's something cool about dragons. A special sort of cool. Great power, hubris, magic, wits to match the adventurers' own. Any Dungeon Master can always use a new dragon, either a detailed individual or entirely new sorts of dragons. In Gem Dragons of Faerûn, you get both.

"Gem dragons have been around for a long time, but this is the best and most detailed (and, of course, 5th Edition) treatment of them I've ever laid eager DM's eyes on, and I met an old friend in its pages. Lovingly worked into the fabric of the Realms and fully realized for any D&D campaign, these wyrms are ready to leap off the pages and into your campaign. A winner! Two talons way, way up!"

Agreed. The next time you grab something for free off a web site, keep in mind that companies put time, effort and money into creating these products. Just because a web site uses the letter, if not the spirit, of the OGL to post other company's work for free doesn't mean you should just use the products without paying.

If you want to check something out first, that's fine, but if you like it enough to use it in you game, you should ABSOLUTELY buy the actual product from the company.

No, it's a single, full-lentgh film.

In addition the the main trilogy they are doing (Episodes 7, 8, and 9) there will also be a number of stand-alone movies to tell various, individual Star Wars stories. This is the first such movie. The next will be a Han Solo origin movie

Endzeitgeist Reviews Southlands!

From the review:
"This may well be the best sourcebook Kobold Press has released ... perhaps this is even one of the best sourcebooks I've ever read. Southlands is excellence - if you even remotely are interested in the subject matter, do yourself a favor and get this glorious tome - it contains enough ideas and adventure for a lifetime and I am not engaging in hyperbole here. My final verdict will clock in at 5 stars + seal of approval and I'll also nominate this as a candidate for my Top Ten of 2015."

As I said in the other thread, a lot of people put in a LOT of time, energy, blood, and sweat into this book, so reviews like this make it all worth while!

Just wanted to say that some of these types of classes are in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press. If you allow any Third Party material in your games, the New Paths Compendium is worth checking out!

14 5-star ratings! :)

Quote:
Shapeshifter- Class that is a non-spellcaster that focuses on changing into anyone and anything. Maybe gains additional bonuses while using it's shape shifting.

Check out the Skin-Changer, a non-spellcasting class with a host of shapeshifting abilities. When in animal form, the class gets a number of enhanced combat abilities too!

Quote:
I would love a 9th level cha based spontaneous caster with the druid spell list. Maybe some kind of totem animal/spirit for it's bloodline/mystery/domain type focus. I really wish this what the shaman was like.

The Shaman is EXACTLY that type of class (not the Paizo shaman, the Shaman that is in the New Paths Compendium - which, incedentaly. came out well before the Paizo version :)

I have to say, some folks are being pretty dismisive of Gygax. Let's never forget that he, more than any one person *period* is the reason we have the game(s) we all play and love today. Although there certainly were other people that helped Gary shape D&D, he was the main, driving creative force that made the game, not to mention the company he founded to publish the game, the success it was and continues to be through its' many successors.

I just think Gygax deserves a bit more respect that he's getting in this thread

Star Wars the Force Awakens was an excellent film.
The three Prequels were mediocre films with a few decent scenes mixed in.
Temple of Doom was much better than Crystal Skull
I really have zero interest in yet another Indianna Jones movie, and I have a feeling neither does the majority of the movie going public ...
