More than likely they are waiting to see when (or even if at this point) Wizards releases an open game license of some kind. Releasing a 5E compatible product without such a thing officially in place can put you on pretty shaky legal ground ...

Hey there!

The theurge receives bonus arcane spells for a high Intelligence
score and bonus divine spells for a high Wisdom score.

So, a 3rd-level theurge with a 12 Intelligence and a 12 Wisdom can prepare:
0-Level Spells: 2+2 (2 arcane and 2 divine)
1st-Level Spells:1+1 (1 arcane and 1 divine)
2nd-Level Spells:1 (1 arcane OR 1 divine)
Because he does not get any bonus spells for a high INT or WIS, the above is all he can cast per day

If that same 3rd-level theurge had an 18 Intelligence and an 18 Wisdom, he could prepare:
0-Level Spells: 2+2 (2 arcane and 2 divine)
1st-Level Spells:1+1 (1 arcane and 1 divine) plus 1 bonus arcane spell and 1 bonus divine spell due to his high stats
2nd-Level Spells:1 (1 arcane OR 1 divine) plus 1 bonus arcane spell OR 1 bonus divine spell (depending on what type of spell he chose to prepare

Does that help?

Also see Kobold Press's Theurge.

Heh, I was going to mention the same thing.

You can find the Theurge base class in the New Paths Compendium, from Kobold Press :)

I just don't get the dislike for Abrams held by the small but very vocal minority. The new teaser looks fantastic and feels in every way like Star Wars. Abrams is a massive Star Wars fan and has poured huge amounts of love into this film, in addition to huge amounts of time, energy and talent.

I think once the film is released this December, everyone (except those few in the vocal minority of course) will be proclaiming their love and admiration for Abrams and the movie

Awesome! This really reinforces how excellent this movie is going to be. I never doubted that Abrams would absolutely nail it with this movie but ... Wow! Just ... SO cool!

Are they all coming from the same IP address? Can this/these pieces of cow dung be blocked or something?

This really does make implementing something to verify an actual human being is creating a new account seem pretty important

My greatest Pathfinder fear... One day, I'll I go online and read, that Pathfinder is going "digital only"; with a new "business model", that only includes PDFs, other digital schemes, and a half-assed promise of a "print on demand" option from some third-party-site (that ends up costing twice as much and current hardcovers.)

Paizo has said many times that they would never go to an all digital model. Print is still were the profit is, especially for the big companies. I know some folks like to say "print is dead", paper is going away", people don't want print anymore" etc. but the reality is this: although digital is absolutely more common now and a percentage of people certainly prefer digital over print (and that's cool), the majority of the public still wants quality print products (possibly with digital support of some kind).

Put simply, as much as a few people keep saying otherwise, print is still preferred by the majority of the public. Print is not going anywhere.

Liberty's Edge

Mind if I asked who did the art for the cover? :)

Liberty's Edge

Sure! The shipping cost would be a bit more that what is listed of course :)

OK, as I mentioned in another thread, it turns out my game book shelf (well, actually three very large oak book shelves) is filled to capacity with books. This means I need to pair down a bit.

So, I have a lot of 4 awesome, mint condition books from Raging Swan for sale:

GM's Miscellany: Wilderness Dressing
GM's Miscellany: Urban Dressing
GM's Miscellany: Dungeon Dressing
TRIBES: Anthology II

If you're a Pathfinder GM, you want these books!

Check 'em Out! if you're interested :)

I got my review up late last night. Marc Radle, let us know what you think of the print copies of the book.

The print copies are awesome! I've always been partial to actual print over digital, and being able to page through these is a treat.

Nice paper stock, good quality printing and perfect binding, heavy cover stock. Absolutely well worth it!

In fact, my biggest regret is that it turns out a don't have enough room on my book shelves for these 3 books (they are really thick!)

Yes there are 3rd party classes and templates. Justin did a phenomenal job. Just got my HC copy a couple hours ago. It's beautiful.

A run-down of what classes are covered would probably be a good idea ...

The ACG errata previews had more FAQ requests than the shield champion, which is not even in the Top 75 most frequently asked questions. We are answering the questions people are asking. They just aren't asking about that one very much.

You are the one of the people who started a picket for us to FAQ the most requested issues. And we listened, and are now focusing on those issues. I am sorry that the issues you want to hear about most are not actually the most requested. It is what people are calling "irony" these days, but if you had not started a call for us to answer the most-requested FAQs, perhaps we would have instead previewed more ACG errata by now including the ones you wanted (I really can't predict how things would have turned out). Personally, I'm thrilled that we got that 566 FAQ damage dice thing done, so I'm not unhappy with our new focus.

And you know that I meant addressing the most urgent issues in the acg not just the most faqed issues in general. If you can't keep your regular faq schedule and also fix the acg then maybe you should consider not releasing that kind of poor quality in the future.

Rushley, no one (including Paizo) is happy about the number and magnitude of errors in the ACG. We all get that, and Paizo is clearly working on fixing it. It may well be taking longer than many folks would like, but maybe you might consider dialing back the venom and vitriol a bit

Liberty's Edge

You might also take a look at the Battle Scion class in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press. The class itself, as well as at least one of the class archetypes sounds pretty close

Liberty's Edge

Actually, since he is using the grave bound archetype for the white necromancer, which specifically gives the white necromancer an undead companion, that would be a very interesting and appropriate way to go.

Liberty's Edge

Keep in mind that undead-creating necromancy spells cast by a white necromancer of 4th level or higher no longer have the evil descriptor.

Also, when a 4th level or higher white necromancer raises undead, they are not necessarily evil - mindless undead resulting from white necromancy are of neutral alignment while the alignment of intelligent undead raised by a white necromancer exactly matches the white necromancer’s alignment.

Liberty's Edge

Can you give a realistic new projected release date by any chance? :)

Liberty's Edge

Hey there! Just saw this thread ... :)

Your back story sounds really interesting and unique - I'd be curious to hear how it's going!

Wow, that's fantastic! I love pieces that allow the viewer to get lost in it for hours. Kind of like an awesome album cover (you younger kids will have to look that up :)

I'll echo what many others have said - thanks for doing this thread! It's facinating! For instance, I was very surprised to hear you don't employ any digital tools to your work. There is a richness and a crispness to your pieces that can sometimes be hard to achieve with traditional processes (unless you're really good at what you do, of course:)

I've had the pleasure of working with Amanda on a number of projects and all I can say is ... Paizo is getting a HECK of a great hire!

Congrats Amanda ... and congrats Paizo!

Thank you sir! Really glad you liked the book.

"One of the best third party products I've purchased" is high praise indeed!!!

Liberty's Edge

Congrats on funding.

I was wondering that as well!

So your playing a Mystic Theurge, the prestige class, not a theurge, the base class from Kobold Press (found in the New Class Compendium)

Liberty's Edge

Sounds good!

Liberty's Edge

I don't think I've ever been called that before ... :)

It'll be fun to see if anyone can figure out which illustration I'm talking about once the book is released :)

Liberty's Edge

I've written literally HUNDREDS of art briefs for the Core Southlands book alone, but I think I just might have written the most unique, off the wall yet coolest art briefs yesterday for the book :)

Liberty's Edge

How's that for service? :)

Perhaps spelling your name correctly would be a good place to start... ;p

I usually spell it 'Cryton' - there's no need for all those odd, extra letters in the middle ... they just confuse people! :)

Rush for the win!

Liberty's Edge

Declaring the name of a class (or whatever) product identity and the mechanics open content does prevent anyone from referencing your class (or whatever) while making open everything else, but it can also lead to multiple, identical classes (or whatever) that are different in name only, which is kind of against the original spirit of the OGL ...

I think it's better to either declare the entire thing (class, item, etc) Product Identity (ie closed content) if appropriate OR make it entirely open, especially if you'd like others to refer back to your product whenever someone else uses what you created in their product.

Liberty's Edge

Cool, a THIRD thread on this subject ... sigh ...

Aquatic Terrain

Lots of good stuff there.

Of note:

Spellcasting Underwater: Casting spells while submerged can be difficult for those who cannot breathe underwater. A creature that cannot breathe water must make a concentration check (DC 15 + spell level) to cast a spell underwater (this is in addition to the caster level check to successfully cast a fire spell underwater). Creatures that can breathe water are unaffected and can cast spells normally. Some spells might function differently underwater, subject to GM discretion.

Fire: Spells or spell-like effects with the fire descriptor are ineffective underwater unless the caster makes a caster level check (DC 20 + spell level). If the check succeeds, the spell creates a bubble of steam instead of its usual fiery effect, but otherwise the spell works as described. A supernatural fire effect is ineffective underwater unless its description states otherwise. The surface of a body of water blocks line of effect for any fire spell. If the caster has made the caster level check to make the fire spell usable underwater, the surface still blocks the spell's line of effect.

I did a fair amount or research on the subject when I was writing The Sunken Pyramid. I actually compiled all the relevant under-water combat and spell-casting rules in an appendix to that book to make the GM's life a little easier ...

Liberty's Edge

Not sure how germane it is to your question, but are you playing Third Edition D&D or Pathfinder. I ask because, to the best of my knowledge, the Book of Drakes from Kobold Press is a Pathfinder RPG book.

As for your actual question, maybe I can summon one or both of the authors ... :)

For those looking for non evil-necromancer options, including non-evil undead, you might check out the White Necromancer class from Kobold Press

You can also get the White Necromancer in the New Paths Compendium, also from Kobold Press :)

There is a bunch of awesome Ioun Stone material in Deep Magic from Kobold Press. Definitely worth checking out.
