I'll admit when I have what I think is a good idea I'm excited about, it becomes all I can think about and I can't wait to start writing. Once I start, it just flows out of me.

BUT, there are other times, particularly when I need to write something I'm not necessarily as exited or passionate about, that I have as much trouble as anyone getting started and and then keeping the momentum once I do finally get started. It's a very frustrating feeling to be sure.

I've read many interviews and biographies from writers who say that, when they are working on project and feeling the dreaded writer's block, they set aside a certain amount of time every day (a couple hours, or even just a single hour or less) in which they MUST write. No matter how well or how poorly it seems to be going, they simply must write something for the project. They may not edit themselves and they may NOT trash, delete or crumble up what they have written.

Then, they come back to what they wrote at a later time and look at it with some degree of objectivity to see what's there. Maybe a given day's writing resulted in nothing worth keeping. More likely, however, there IS something good, even if it's just a single paragraph, a sentence, an idea, or even just a cool name. Keep that nugget of gold, refine it and then keep moving forward like that every day.

You might be very surprised what you end up with!

Hey everyone! An updated New Paths 8: The Trickster has just been distributed to all the normal channels.

Main updates include:

  • Skill Ranks per Level reduced to 4 + Int modifier
  • Added a sidebar called "Trickster Spells and Balance" which offers a lower-power variant to the standard trickster spellcasting class feature
  • Added a new forte (Shadow)
  • Beefed up the Acrobat forte (added more magic abilities and synergies)
  • Added an archetype: Dual-Forte Trickster

Well there's always the slayer, or a couple of archetypes that trade out spells. Or just roll with a 10 Wis.

True! In my case, however, my go-to is almost always the Spell-less Ranger, also from the New Paths Compendium :)

Great thread! Very interesting!

My top Paizo classes (in no particular order)
Oracle/Cleric: Kind of cheating here, I know, but I only get three! :) I love playing divine classes for the rich role-playing potential, and both of these classes are great
Paladin: Much like above, the paladin has so much role-playing potential, and it's a powerful class!
Ranger: The rugged, nature-oriented Aragorn archetype really appeals to me, especially when you throw in the archer angle, although I prefer my rangers to not be spellcasters ...

My top 3PP classes (in no particular order)
Trickster (Kobold Press, New Paths Compendium): A wizard/rogue hybrid class with plenty of versatility - very fun to play
Shaman (Kobold Press, New Paths Compendium) Spontaneous druid - what else do you need to say! ? :)
Theurge (Kobold Press, New Paths Compendium) A powerful arcane/divine spellcasting class that is all about spells, including cool ways to combine them.
What can I say - I know the author! :)

Hey there matlouraph!

Although I wrote the majority of the New Paths Compendium, the Savant is one of the classes I did not have a hand in, so I can't help with your questions. I CAN, however, attempt to use ancient and powerful magic to summon the person who IS responsible for the Savant.

Stand by while I gather up the necessary material components ...

I'd like to offer a suggestion that's come up many times before but it really needs to happen.

PLEASE start accepting PayPal. It's really a big negative in my opinion that one cannot pay with PayPal at Paizo's store. I'd order all my gaming books etc if you did, but as it is, I go elsewhere.

I know there are reasons cited for why you don't (processing monthly subscriptions being a biggie if I recall correctly) but there's got to be some sort of comprimise. Why not simply allow PayPal for single purchases only, but not for ongoing subscriptions, for example

Thank you for the review Raven Black! Extremely well-reasoned and considered indeed! Very happy to see you liked the class

You bring up some interesting points that are certainly worth considering. In fact, I'm about to start playing in a new campaign (Hell's Rebels) - I think I might make a few tweaks to the class and then playtest them in this new campaign to see how they work out ...

Stay tuned!

Actually playtesting is the opposite of theorycrafting. Playtesting is exactly what it sounds like - actually playing the game under many different scenarios and noting any problems, issues etc., then making adjustments, playing more, adjusting again, until you are as confident as possible you have it right.

Theorycrafting, while there is a place for it, is much less valuable because it's just someone making assumptions based only on what they read without actually making the effort to playtest.

Any company worth their proverbial salt will playtest the heck out of something like this, and Paizo is absolutely a company worth their proverbial salt.

* Is it time for PDF ONLY SUBSCRIPTIONS Yet?

might help reduce prices and costs, and maybe boost sales in the process.

PDFs subs wouldn't reduce prices and costs much (printing is cheap, what is expensive are things that you need to do anyway - art, art, art, words, layout, more art). And it would piss LGS's off even more so than they already are angry at Paizo for providing any PDFs in the first place. So if you put out a PDF subscription scheme with a discount, whatever you will gain in people subscribing won't offset the angry LGS owners who take your product off the shelf and stop hosting PFS events.

Just an aside ... Printing ain't cheap, believe me. You're right that art, words, editing, development and layout cost a lot (especially when done at a professional level) but printing is also a huge expense.

so, i guess Pathfinder product sales are dipping?

I'd rather they put more effort into Pathfinder, countries described in "Distant Shores" or an ongoing mega-dungeon like "Hollow Mountain"

I tried "star frontiers" and "Traveler" not really my thing

I would assume that mega dungeons and more Campaign setting material would not remotely be influenced by Starfinder anyway. It's more the "world neutral" RPG line.
it's a question of resources; now you have lots of paizo people devoted to Starfinder and not Pathfinder

I have a feeling we'll hear about new hires over the next few weeks and months.

Honestly, I see this as a good thing - it means Paizo is in a good enough place to release a new game. And they are more than smart enough to do this the right way.

I wouldn't worry at all about this announcement - I see it as a very positive move

scary harpy is very right - Gem Dragons of Faerûn has plenty of cool, evocative detail that can easily be used in a Pathfinder game!

I guess my real question was about the "by Eric Cradle" part ...

If the OP just got the name wrong, then now worries! But if there really is someone named Eric Cradle claiming he wrote this class, then there might be a wee problem ...

I just got a chance to put aside the GMing for awhile and get a chance to play. One of my players decided to run the Carrion Crown adventure path. Since it is based in Ustalav and we all knew it would be undead heavy and that dhampirs are far more common, I decided to make a dhampir necromancer. The problem I ran into was I wanted to make a good-aligned necromancer. In a good-aligned party that is wanting to succeed against undead, a necromancer would suuuuck. However, I wanted to do it anyway. After some research I found the White Necromancer class by Eric Cradle. Great class! So far, I've made it to level two. I picked up Natural Charmer as my 1st level feat. Here's the rest of the build progression. I chose the Gravebound archetype for the class. I picked the Vampiric Empathy and Heir to Undying Nobility alternate racial traits along with Reactionary and Lesser Noble. Here goes:

Feats:
3rd: Spell focus (Necromancy)
5th: Augment Undead
7th: White Undead Leadership
9th: Undead Master
11th: Necrotic Spell
13th: Siphon Spell
15th: Ectoplasmic Spell
17th: Thanatopic Spell
19th: Quicken Spell

Spells known: (* means necromancy spell)
3rd: hide from undead
4th: detect poison and lesser animate dead* (swap cure light wounds with inflict light wds.)
5th: ray of enfeeblement*, spectral hand*
6th: arcane mark and inflict serious wds. (change out a spell if necessary)
7th: protection from evil, ghoul touch* and vampiric touch*
8th: light and animate dead* (change out a spell if necessary)
9th: see invisibility, fly and greater invisibility
10th: dancing lights and greater bone shards (change out a spell if necessary)
11th: silence, gaseous form, inflict critical wounds*, and chain of bones
12th: create undead* (change out a spell if necessary)
13th: enervation*, undead anatomy II*, and harm*
14th: waves of exhaustion* (change out a spell if necessary)
15th: suffocation*, undead anatomy III*, and control undead*
16th: create greater undead* (swap undead anatomy II* with wall of bones)
17th:...

Out of curiosity, can you elaborate on this White Necromancer class by Eric Cradle?

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 :)

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 ...

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."

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.

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.

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!
