Thanks, Marc! Would you mind linking the page that shows that list? I can't find it.

It's actually right from Paizo's weekly e-mail! :)

I'd humbly suggest The Sunken Pyramid from Raging Swan Press

The Sunken Pyramid

8 out of 8 5-star reviews :)

Did you really just claim that a rogue would do better in combat than a tier 1 full caster? Because it really looks like you just did.
At mid levels, using chill touch via major magic for touch sneak attacks, with a valet familiar outflank buddy sharing your sneak attacks, yes.

Bwuahahahahaha!

I can't even take this seriously.

*shrug* Then don't. Carnivalist rogue with a valet familiar shares teamwork feats and sneak attack dice with the familiar. With outflank plus paired opportunists they both have a +4 to attack and will gain attacks of opportunity on a crit.

At that point you are basically a touch attack hunter with sneak attack.

It's an extremely powerful build despite being on a rogue chassis. It's not as good as a hunter or sacred huntmaster, but it's much stronger than the sum of its parts.

Where is the Carnivalist rogue from???

Also, what is a 'valet familiar'?

I'm finding myself listening to "To Tame a Land" by Iron Maiden a LOT while I work on the Southlands layouts!

I challenge you to listen to that song and not get in a Southlands frame of mind :)

Spontaneous 9/9 nature caster. We already have spontaneous wizards in the sorcerer and spontaneous clerics in the oracle...I'd like a spontaneous 9/9 that uses the druid list, with enough changes where it's a new class, and not just an archetype like the eldrich scion for the magus.

(Although even that wouldn't be too bad, honestly, but I think nature casters deserve their own counterpart, mainly because I just feel like it would make a complete "set" of spontaneous casters for the core prepared originals.)

The New Paths Compendium has the Shaman which is exactly that!

Just sayin' :)

For a dedicated full-BAB, might I suggest the Skin-Changer from the New Paths Compendium?

In fact, the New Paths Compendium has quite a few new classes for Pathfinder and has been quite well-reviewed! It's worth checking out :)

No problem!

I have it on good authority that the Kobold HeroLab team is on the case!

You know, since this book (this series, actually) is made up almost entirely of material created and published by Paizo and other third party companies, it would be nice if the product description at least listed what 3PP are represented, perhaps even giving credit for what elements come from what 3PP.

Not to criticize, but it kind of seems like the least you could do ...

The White Necromancer was created for the Midgard setting. It's a problematic duck for the standard assumptions of Golarion.

Quick point of clarification ... the white necromancer class was definitely NOT created specifically for the Midgard setting. It was created and conceived as a setting neutral class.

The white necromancer class is from Kobold press and that class is most certainly represented in the Midgard setting, so I understand the misunderstanding, but I think the distinction is important.

I do agree that the white necromancer class might be a bit problematic in the Golarian setting, especially if played in a 100% canonical way as it pertains to undead. However, plenty of folks use homebrew worlds in which a white necromancer fits just fine, and even more folks that use Golarian can, and most certainly do, modify aspects of the setting to fit their needs. So, unless you use the Golarian setting AND are very strict about adhering to the Golarian 'rule' about non-evil undead, the white necromancer class can fit quite esily into your game.

Hey Nate! Sure why not? Just don't tell anyone ;)

Maybe you can post a review of the New Paths Compendium in return? :)

OK, here are the ones I have so far. (Who knows, maybe if the NPC, I don't know, gets a new, full color, hard cover update with cool stuff like ... and I'm just spit-balling here ... an additional class, a new archetype or two, new feats etc ... these would be included.)

Greater Force Blast
Your force blasts have no daily limit.
Prerequisites: Extra Force Blast, Improved Force Blast, base attack bonus +11
Benefit: You are no longer limited in the number of force blasts you can fire per day.
Normal: A battle scion can use force blast a number of times per day equal to 3 + his Intelligence modifier.

Extend Force Blast
You force blasts have the double the standard range.
Prerequisites: Force blast class feature.
Benefit: The range of your force blasts increases to 120 feet.

Improved Force Blast
Your force blasts ignore anything but total concealment and cover.
Prerequisites: Dex 16, base attack bonus +6.
Benefit: Your force blasts ignore the AC bonus granted to targets by anything less than total cover, and the miss chance granted to targets by anything less than total concealment. Total cover and total concealment provide their normal benefits against your force blasts.

These would necessitate one small change to the Force Blaster archetype ...

Change Force Blaster's Extra Blasts ability from ...

Extra Blasts (Ex): At 6th level, the blaster receives Extra Force Blast as a bonus feat. This replaces the 6th
level bonus feat.

to ...

Enhanced Blasts (Ex): At 6th level, the blaster receives Extend Force Blast, Extra Force Blast or Improved Force Blast as a bonus feat. The force blaster must meet the prerequisites of this bonus feat. This replaces the 6th level bonus feat.

Well, isn't that interesting ... :)

Thanks for the great review Adam!

I'm not sure about the HeroLab files but I can see what I can find out!

Hey lou!

As Mike mentioned above, this series is more of GM resource for modifying giants and adding more fun and interest to them. It's not intended to be as player centric as the Advanced Races series so it's not an omission, it was a concious design decision :)

You might also consider the Spell-less Ranger from Kobold Press ....

That said, if Kobold Press ever wants to release a Deep FEATS that does the same thing for martials as Deep Magic does for casters in presenting tons of delicious options and variant styles of doing what you do, my wallet is up for it.

Well, it's not nearly as huge and expansive as Deep Magic, but the New Paths Compendium, also from Kobold Press has a pretty large feats chapter, and many of those feats are geared toward martial types.

In addition,the New Paths Compendium has a section called "Scaling Combat Feats" which addresses the 'problem' of feat chains and goes a long way toward bumping up the power level and fun of martial/combat types.

I'm not trying to say Deep Magic is bad, so much as I'm saying that at times the editing could have been better and some options were perhaps not as thoroughly thought out as they could have been. The book has a lot of nice things and cool ideas, but I don't feel everything is balanced enough for me as a DM to allow all options in it without reviewing them first on a case by case basis.

Oh sure! Of course, that's a good rule for ANY new product, even one from Paizo! :)

Their first session everyone met in Zelkor's Ferry and introduced themselves. The PC's are:

a Tiefling Magus
an Elf Rogue (Deceased - details later)
an Orc Slayer
an Aasimar Theurge
an Aasimar Oracle
an Elf Spell-Less Ranger

Their first foray into the wilderness around Zelkor's Ferry they were hunting Black Bear. One morning they found bear tracks and followed them to the lair, but when the Rogue threw the burning branch into the opening in a 20 foot diameter tree trunk what came out was not a Black Bear but a Grizzly (think Dire Bear). After that they ask the Spell-Less Ranger how big are the tracks of the bear.

Nice! Spell-less Ranger for the win :)

If you're an old school fan, you should check out Raging Swan Press' Shadowed Keep on the Borderland for a fun old school module.

Absolutely! That adventure is excellent!!! Creighton is an amazing adventure writer!

Another very well-reviewed adventure from Raging Swan worth checking out is The Sunken Pyramid. As an added bonus, the person who wrote it is a heck of a guy! :)

bookrat wrote:
Just out of curiosity, are there adventure modules with some of these great new classes already written into them?

Great question! Kobold Press definitely actively supports the NPC classes. There are new spells for them in Deep Magic, there are new archetypes for them in many of the Advanced Races line, there is plenty of support for them in the upcoming Southlands books, including the Gravebinder, a brand-new white necromancer archetype.

As for adventures, I believe a few Kobold Press adventures utilize classes from the NPC. Off the top of my head, the Raven's Call does and I know (because I wrote it:) that the upcoming adventure Shadows of the Dusk Queen definitely uses classes from the New Paths Compendium (as well as a few feats and spells!)

I'm surprised a freelance layout/graphic design contract would be negotiated on an hourly rate. Is that common? I would have anticipated it would be on a $x/page arrangement (with a varying rate based on complexity, whether there are pre-existing templates, etcetera...)

Absolutely. In the higher-end advertising / design world, per hour rates are common. In the RPG biz, a per page rate is the norm

What I need for Interjection Games is a layout guy, but the last time I got an unsolicited quote for that, it was $25 an hour, plus a surcharge for each page completed. And this was from a fellow who works in this industry.
That's actually pretty cheap. The going rate for design these days is $60-$100 an hour. From a pro, anyway.

Maybe at a large Advertising / Design firm in a major city. Not in the RPG industry ...

Not specifically by name of course, but Arabian and Near/Middle Eastern themes, culture and myth of all stripes is very much a central element! Along with plenty of of Egyptian and African themes, culture and myth, of course!

Bottom line, these Southlands books are going to be fantastic, rich sources for folks wanting Arabian styled games!

How soon do you need this? If you can wait for a few months, then BOY do I have the products for you! :)

Southlands

* Southlands Core Hardcover in Full Color
* Southlands Bestiary in Full Color
* Arabian Nights adventure anthology
* Heck, you can even get a limited edition set of Southlands dice!

What more could you ask for? :)

Best of all, it's from Kobold Press and Wolfgang Baur (fans of Al Qadim should certainly know that name!)

Liberty's Edge

Wolfgang can give much better details regarding the schedule, but if I remember correctly, I *think* the Southlands Bestiary should come out more or less at the same time as the Southlands Core book.

Speaking of the Southlands Bestiary, I have most of the final art in for this and holy #%&#!!!! is it awesome!!!! :)

First of all, why isn't this race up on d20pfsrd? Not OGL?

Second off, how well balanced and how versatile is this race? I was looking for a neutral aligned Aasimar/Tiefling alternative, preferably something as versatile as the Aasimar(alternate attribute boosts and race features).

And of course, is the fluff any good?

Asking because I cannot find any information about this at all online, though I admit I haven't looked for a torrent of the pdf.

You could, you know, actually buy a copy of the product.

Just a thought ...
