Only 2 days left!
If you'd like a BUNCH of Bones minis to paint AND prety much everything you need to paint them, please check it out :)
All the art for this book (more than 300 full-color illustrations!) is absolutely amazing! We're working with some of the top artists in the industry. The alseid was just one of the pieces done by none other than Eva Widermann! Seriously, I can sincerely say you could buy this book 100% for the alone and it would be money well spent!
Regarding the alseid preview, keep in mind these are just previews. They didn't go through NEARLY as much rigorous development and editing as the final book will. In the case of the Dex to shortbow damage, I believe that was recently corrected - so updated versions of this preview page should now be correct.
Thanks silverhair! Agreed on the printed battle maps. It's all a matter of having enough backers (I think the number I head is about 1,000 backers). That's a very doable number though - there are already more than 500 backers after only 3 days after all!
The key now is to spread the word - even a backer at $1 counts as a backer!
Thanks sepik121 - vote noted!
Since this is the Pathfinder 3PP forum, many may not know what Kickstarter Brinebeast is referring to. You can check it out here: Tome of Beasts
If folks would like to see a Pathfinder version of this MASSIVE, richly-illustrated, full color, hard cover tome, by all means let your voices be heard - here in this thread or where ever! Believe me, Kobold Press absolutely LOVES Paizo and LOVES the Pathfinder RPG so I'd say there would be pretty much zero hesitation to do a Pathfinder version of the Tome ... but, again, there has to be a demand for it.
Having said that, even if you don't play 5E, you can still get involved in this huge Kickstarter (funded within the first 24 hours, 500+ backers so far, and more than twice the initial funding goal in just a few days!) because, in addition to the Tome of Beasts, there is also a companion book, the Book of Lairs, which presents short, detailed lairs, including an Alchemist's Guildhall, Bloodstone Grove, the Umbral Tower, and the Lost Halls of Everforge.
Each lair comes with a 24" by 36" battle map for use in virtual table tops, projectors, or printing out full-color and ready for play! And, if we get enough backers, an option to get beautiful printed versions of the maps should become available.
Best of all, Pathfinder fans can back this project and then ONLY opt for the Book of Lairs (which should be fairly system lite, and easily converted to Pathfinder etc) and battle maps, or even *just* the battle maps themselves!
Check out the Kickstarter for full details of course, but you can pledge just $12 and get all the full-scale battle maps in high-resolution (no matter how many battle maps end up becoming part of it!)
$25 gets you project's battlemaps *plus* the Book of Lairs
So, even though this Kickstarter is primarily for 5E fans, there are still some awesome goodies for Pathfinder fans! :)
Be sure to check out the new update: A is for Alseid
Also, only 8 backers away from reaching the first Backer Goal (500 backers)!
Last but not least, check out what has to be one of my most favoritest comments from the Kickstarter Comments section :)
"Kobold Press produces the highest quality supplements I've ever seen apart from the big publishers (Paizo and WOTC) - and in some notable cases their products even surpass those publishers! I don't even play 5E but I can't pass up the chance to support Kobold Press while also getting some great content and ideas (even if it's in a different system that what I run)."
Worth noting the Eye Golem has a grammatical error. Seems to be missing a period (I think) within "Primal Voice of Doom" after the word 'frightened'.
Good catch! Remember these are just initial previews - the final product will be painstakingly and very thoroughly edited, believe you me! :)
I have a REAPER BONES Vampire set of miniatures + 2 Frost Wyrm Extra/Add-ons and the Undead Giant Extra/Add-on, as well as a bunch of Reaper Paints (All 4 sets from Kickstarter), some nice, brand new brushes and a unused can of Testors Dull Coat available
Basically, I opened my REAPER BONES Vampire box when I first got it, put everything in a nice case so they would stay safe and pristine until I was ready to start painting. Unfortunately, I just never found the time! SO, rather than just hang on to everything and never getting around to painting, I'd rather these go to someone who will get use of them! Pleae check everything out here:
This is pretty much everything you need to start painting and KEEP painting for a loooong time! :)

I also have a few Pathfinder RPG Compatible books available (including 1 extremely rare one.) You can follow the links to those from the Bones auction if you like
The art sealed it for me admittedly. Really nice. Have high hopes for this one.
Awesome! We've been working EXTREMELY hard with some amazing artists to make sure this book is absolutely beautiful!
Every last monster gets a full color illustration and, honestly, they are ALL just fantastic! I can't wait for folks (more than 420 folks so far, after only a single day, and counting :) to get their hands on the finished book!!!
OH, got it! Hopefully you'll be able to check the kickstarter out at some point :)
There is AMAZING, full-color art for each and every one of the 300+ monsters! The main book will be a full-color, hard cover thing of beauty! :)
The book is scheduled to release in April 2016.
There are lots of cool stretch goals and add-ons of course, so be sure to follow as the Kickstarter rolls on.
We've been working EXTREMELY hard on this behind the scenes for months, and I'm confident it's going to be a fantastic book!
Hope everyone checks it out!
Mentioned in the 'Kobold Press 5e material' thread, but really worth its own thread ... :)
The Tome of Beasts brings more than 300 new monsters to your 5e game—everything from tiny drakes and peculiar spiders to ancient dragons, arch-devils, and demon lords. The Tome of Beasts covers a huge gamut of challenges, from basic vermin to world-shaking personification of malevolence, and everything in between!
In addition to the MASSIVE, richly-illustrated, full color, hard cover Tome of Beasts, there is also a companion book, the Book of Lairs, which presents short, detailed lairs, including an Alchemist's Guildhall, Bloodstone Grove, the Umbral Tower, and the Lost Halls of Everforge. Each lair spotlights a monster from the Tome of Beasts and comes with a 24" by 36" battle map is for use in virtual table tops, projectors, or printing out full-color and ready for play!
Just launched from Kobold Press: The Tome of Beasts / Book of Lairs Kickstarter!
The Tome of Beasts is a massive, full color, hard cover book which brings more than 300 new monsters to your 5e game.
More important to miniature fans though, is the Book of Lairs, the companion book in the kickstarter: 10 detailed lairs, each delivering a short, playable encounter, including an Alchemist's Guildhall, Bloodstone Grove, the Umbral Tower, and the Lost Halls of Everforge. Each lair comes with a 24 inches by 36 inches battle map for use in virtual table tops, projectors, or printing out full-color and ready for play!

Really? Huh ... I LOVED that double-ended lightsabre! The fight beteen Dart Maul (using his awesome double-ended lightsabre) and Obi-Wan & Qui Gon was one of the best parts of the movies!
To the OP, I'd LOVE to see a 5E version of Shadows of the Dusk Queen. Hopefully we can make that happen at some point!
One of the main things that would need converted to 5E, of course, would be the handful of new monsters in the adventure. Too bad 5E versions of those new monsters weren't already available in a really awesome, massive book of 5E monsters or something ....
Oh well ...
Agreed! I've said it before, but I'm convinced you could take all three of the prequals and edit them down to 2 pretty darn good movies.
Back on topic: are there any more details on this? I may have missed it, but is there a final list of theaters and dates yet?
They are making a live action Beauty and the Beast. Emma Watson is playing Belle ...

Awesome! It's proven to be a very popular (and well reviewed) class. Hope yo have fun with it if you decide to play a battle scion!

Here's a bit more info (now that I'm not posting from my phone :)
Skin-Changer class in the New Paths Compendium
A few snippets from various reviews:
"... 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!"
"The Skin-changer .... great idea: Beorn from the Hobbit is not well represented in fantasy games, and this does the trick."
What's up with that obnoxious big blue 'Sign Up / Sign In" bar across the top of the all Facebook pages now? That's new, right?
It's horrible - it covers up the top inch of the screen unless you sign in! If I don't *want* to sign in (or don't want a Facebook account in the first place!) you are forced to deal with that ugly blue bar covering the top of any page now?
Heads up! Shadows of the Dusk Queen is part of DriveThruRPG's d20 September Sale, so from now through September 30th, the adventure (along with many other Kobold Press titles) has been marked down by 15%!
And, speaking of Shadows of the Dusk Queen ... the adventure has received 8 great reviews here on Paizo (thank you!!!) but it would be super-extra-awesome to see a couple more :) Anyone in this thread who hasn't posted a review, even a short but sweet review, but feels so inclined ... why not take a few minutes and post one? :)
