Was actually going to suggest this. While I've never personally played the Battle Scion, the thought has come up many a time.

Cool!

I have always wanted an Arcane equivalent to the Paladin. Full BAB, forth level casting and Arcane themed abilities. Bloodrager has all those things and yet it still doesn't quite feel like the right fit for what I want. It's probably the barbarian influence. Would anyone else like to see something a bit more Arcane Paladin and a bit less Arcane barbarian?
It's called the Magus. I'm not sure what you mean by the term "Arcane Paladin". All you talked about was combining fighting crunch with arcane crunch, and the Magus gives you that in spaces. I don't see where you talk about the roleplaying aspcts at all, holy warrior and arcane mastery simply aren't two things that synergise.

Typically, when folks talk about wanting an "arcane paladin' what they mean is a class that is built on a paladin-like framework, as far as BAB, spell casting, armor and weapon proficiency and suite of class abilities BUT casts arcane spells instead of divine. Such a class would not be a holy class at all (necessarily)

It's something that people have been asking for for quite some time. In fact, it's precisely why the battle scion was created.

And, you'll note, based on that set of criteria, the magus would not qualify as an 'arcane paladin' :)

Wow! That was some episode last night!!!

Don't assume ... you should be a publisher. Some people are just happier working as freelancers

Absolutely!

I am a very happy (and very busy) freelance writer, graphic artist/designer and illustrator but I don't think I would ever want to be a publisher (even if I felt I had every it takes to BE a publisher!)

Uh... what do I do there? It seems to be already finished...

True enough! The Kickstarter just ended recently.

The book is due out by the end of the year - you will be able to preorder 3 or 4 months before it ships, so probably around July or August at koboldpress.com.

You'll also able to buy it right here through Paizo!

Liberty's Edge

It will indded have HeroLab support!!! Check out the link for details!

-A medium size playable Cyclops-like race.
-A playable Minotaur race.
-A good-looking playable harpy-like race with wings for arms and talon feet.
-A race with a real third eye on there forehead.
-A lizard based race maybe a gecko or chameleon.
-A race that can create webs, doesn't have to be a spider.
-A few insect-like races, small and medium, maybe even a playable Thriae.
-A playable Frankenstein's monster-like race.
-A monstrous humanoid race that you can create with a list of monster traits such as horns, claws, webbed feet, wings, tail, etc.

Oooh! Thanks for the reminder! I meant to add that the above-mentioned Advanced Races Compendium also has a minotaur and insect race as well! :)

Liberty's Edge

Great topic! Might I suggest folks check out the Advanced Races Compendium from Kobold Press

This full color hardcover book contains many of the races as balanced, playable races wished for in this thread, including lamia (serpent lower half), dragon blooded, fey, corporeal undead, etc. !

Good point. Still just seems like a waste imo.

Having a PDF is fine, but for a great many folks (myself included) there is simply nothing like having the real thing.

Y'know, this may be a lame suggestion, but it would be nice if there was a way to make it easier to advertise a game being open to players. Maybe a little foldable sign that comes with the goodie bag that we could put at the table to say to prospective players, "Yes, we have room for one more". Pickup games are tricky enough without requiring players to go from table to table asking, "Hey, are you guys just starting, or are you too far in to accept a new guy?"

That sounds like a really good idea!

Liberty's Edge

All good points! I'm fairly open to most of those types of details.

One thing I should have been clear on is we only use prepainted plastic minis, so I'm not looking for metal minis here.

It's starting to look like there just aren't many appoprite minis out there :/

I can say with authority and certainty that it will not be a full year from the book's publication.

So there you have it. A window.

Some time between the end of PaizoCon and the beginning of Gen Con.

For sure.

When the long-awaited errata is released, will that also signal the second printing of the book (with all the errata, edits etc included)?

I'd very much like to finally buy the book, but at this point I'd want to be sure it's the second printing ...

Liberty's Edge

I'm curious ... What do you mean by templates? InDesign templates? Word?

Also, for the prices you want, are you looking for stock art or are you trying to get newly commissioned art?

I like the slayer class.

Of course, the slayer has quite a bit in common with Kobold Press’s own spell-less ranger class (hmmm …) so go figure :)

spell-less ranger in the New Paths Compendium

Liberty's Edge

No, I meant search these forums specifically.

Liberty's Edge

You might also just do a search. This question has come up a mumber of times and there are quite a few threads about this already. You probably will find most of your answers if you you spend a couple minutes searching ...

Thanks, but that's definitely a lizard man. I definitely want something much closer to a fragon disciple - including wings at a minimum

Can anyone point me to a good Dragon Disciple mini?

As pretty much, well ... always, Liz is correct :)

There is stock art out there. Most is reasonably priced. The quality can run from pretty mediocre to pretty darn good.

If you are a smaller and/or new publisher and you need to make every copper count, stock art can be the way to go.

If you are an artist, you definitely want to value your work correctly and accurately. Certainly don't over price yourself, but don't under value yourself either! And, free is pretty much always going to fall into the 'under value yourself' category.

Oh, do NOT mess with Alton Brown!

I LOVE Alton Brown! Alton is awesome!

I haven't read the books, but a look at book-related wikis suggests very serious deviations between print and TV here. Jeyne Poole is the daughter of the steward of Winterfell, and Sansa Stark's best friend. A series of events has Jeyne being sent to Winterfell claiming to be Arya Stark, where she (as Arya) is married off to Ramsay Bolton. Theon knows she's not Arya but warns her to maintain the masquerade. Her marriage to Ramsay is, predictably, very unpleasant. After escaping Winterfell she continues to be "Arya", lying to Stannis Baratheon about her identity.
Oh, ok! She's the girl who is Bolton's current 'girlfriend' (the one he was saying was jealous of Sansa) and was giving Sansa a bath? I was thinking she was not to be trusted and was only getting close to Sansa to try and kill her or something, not honestly trying to befriend her ...

No, Jayne isn't in the show at all. They are just basically giving all of her stuff to Sansa it seems. In the books, Sansa all but is unheard of in the events happening here in the show. We would not have seen her at all.

As to Bran, the show runners have said that they will keep it the way the books are, and we won't be seeing Bran this year.

Hope that helps!!

Got it!

Hey there silverhair - He's way to modest to say it himself, but I've worked with Wolfgang for a number of years, and I can say with absolute certainty that Wolfgang is AMAZINGLY good at keeping multiple projects organized and on track. He's also excellent at scheduling things like Kickstarters so that everything runs smoothly and stays on schedule.

As you may have seen mentioned by numerous folks over in the Kickstarter comments thread Kobold Press is very good at delivering on Kickstarters!

Liberty's Edge

WOW!

For what was originally seen as a smaller project (hence, the shorter 20-day Kickstarter length) this ended up being pretty amazing!

Thanks so much to all the sahuagin fans for helping to get the sahuagin chapter into the book.

In the end, there were almost 800 backers and more than $50,000 raised! As a result, the Advanced Races Compendium hardcover is going to be even more fantastic. An NPC codex was also funded for all backers which will feature fully fleshed out NPCs of each featured race, which means I will be get do do at least one cool sahuagin NPC. I'm thinking of trying to tie it into the Sunken Pyramid somehow ... any ideas?

Out of curiosity, how are these connected to Pathfinder Society? The thread title seems to imply some sort of PFS connection ...

Less than $500 and a little more than an hour and a half to go to get the NPC Codex added!!!

We can do it!!

Liberty's Edge

Woo hoo!

Sahuagin are going in the book!!!

Liberty's Edge

Woo Hoo! Super excited to see the sahuagin chapter make it into the book!!!!

We're well on the way to the next goal - lots of cool, additional Minotaur goodness (hunter archetype and expanded labyrinth magic).

And ... there are still 9 hours to go! It's going to be close, but there's still time to get to the final listed goal, the NPC codex and showcase at $50,000!

Spread the word :)

That's three stretch goals in about a 24 hour period. This was the second highest earning day for the project, second only to launch day, people are really getting the word out it seems (and probably deciding to finally jump in or pack on those add-ons).

If the last day is a repeat of today, the book is about to get a lot bigger.

And, don't forget this was only a 20 day Kickstarter!

More than 700 backers so far and only $100 or so before we hit the sahuagin chapter goal (written by some dude I've never heard of). This full color hard cover book is going to be roughly 300 pages (or more!) of awesome!

Better yet, after the sahuagin chapter goal, there are still more cool stretch goals, including my favorite - the NPC codex and showcase at $50,000! featuring fully fleshed out NPCs using all the races (and class archetypes etc) featured in the book!

Today is the final day though - so please check out the The Advanced Races Compendium today and get in on what is turning into one heck of a book!

Liberty's Edge

Thank you sir!!!

The cool thing is, since I used what I did for Sunken Pyramid as a starting point, this chapter would be perfect to help make running Sunken Pyramid even more fun and immersive.

Heck, since one of the main points of the Advanced Races Compendium is to present full details on using these races as balanced player races, one could actually use the sahuagin chapter to PLAY a sahuagin for the Sunken Pyramid! Maybe a sahuagin who has turned his back on the ways of his people and wants to help the other PCs?

Only about $200 to go to get the sahuagin into the book. Everyone, please consider backing the The Advanced Races Compendium!

Fans of this adventure or sahuagin in general, please check out and consider backing
The Advanced Races Compendium

More than a dozen new and expanded PFPRG heroes: tieflings, gearforged, lizardfolk, aasimar, kobolds, and many more, in rich detail in a beautiful full color hardcover book

We're in the final 24 hours and, if we can reach the next stretch goal, we add a sahuagin chapter to the book! I based much of this final chapter on the sahuagin work I wrote for Sunken Pyramid (with Creighton's extremely generous blessing)

So please check it out and consider backing so we can get lots of sahuagin goodness into the book!!!

Liberty's Edge

Yowzah! Chapter 20 the jinnborn funded fast!!!

We've got just bit over 24 hours left - let's get to the rest of the cool stuff ... Including Chapter 21 Sahuagin!!!

Liberty's Edge

Hey, wow! More than 600 backers and still about 2 days left to go.

And, only about $300 or so until Chapter 19: The Dhampir is funded!
