Just noticed that this was moved down to the 4th/4th Edition section but it really should not have been. The original post specifically and clearly wanted to bring this to to the attention of Pathfinder fans. The discussion was about using the material in a Pathfinder game so moving it seems like a mistake. Could this maybe get moved back up where the original poster had it?
The Gravebound might be my favorite archetype for the White Necromancer class - it's filled with flavor and role-playing potential.
The trick to a skeleton companion is to think like you're equipping a fighter - magic armor, magic weapon(s), belt of physical might, etc. Have fun and embrace the fact the it is corporeal :)
Normally, when a party is going through treasure hoards and finds a magic weapon, and the fighter-types in the party don't claim it because they already have their own, the spell caster says "Well, I sure don't want it!" A Gravebound White Necromancer with a skeleton companion gets to say "Hey, cool - I'll take it!" :)
The White Necromancer can also be found in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press

scary harpy is very right - Gem Dragons of Faerûn has plenty of cool, evocative detail that can easily be used in a Pathfinder game!
The illustrious Ed Greenwood himself said, "Gem dragons have been around for a long time, but this is the best and most detailed treatment of them I've ever laid eager DM's eyes on, and I met an old friend in its pages. Lovingly worked into the fabric of the Realms and fully realized for any D&D campaign, these wyrms are ready to leap off the pages and into your campaign. A winner! Two talons way, way up!"

I'm going to recommend you look over Endzeitgeist's reviews of 3rd party materials. Everyone is a bit biased on their personal preference- he's a pretty solid centerline voice though.
A thousand times this!
You can't go wrong with Endzeitgeist's reviews. In fact, he recently released his "Best of 2015" list!

The big question is ... who is playing Vader?
I just finished listening to NPR (Studio 360) and the final 10-15 minutes was an awesome segment on D&D/RPGs and Alignment.
Very interesting and worth checking out. The entire episode was good, so I suggest just listening to the entire thing, but if you just want the Alignment segment, skip forward to the last maybe 15 minutes or so.
Hey everyone, be sure to check the Even Trading section - there are some good trades being offered (and, yes, I have some events up for trade :)
And don't just check once - I'd check back at lease every few days - I've seen a number of new events pop up for trade as well as some go away as folks snap them up :)
Thanks Cort. I actually knew all that already :)
I just did those earlier this morning, and so far they seem to be working.
The problem is/was that I tried doing them maybe 4 or 5 times previously over the last couple days, and they always vanished within an hour or so ...
I'll keep checking over the next few days to see if they stay put!
Yeah, although I absolutely understand why some folks want to bring up the comic, it is getting pretty confusing when posts bounce around between Civil War the movie and Civil War the comic. It'll never happen, I know, but I kind of wish discussion about plots in the Civil War comic moved elsewhere and this thread just stuck with discussing the movie as much as realistically possible ...
Is anyone else having trouble with the trading system? I keep putting up one of my events for a trade, and every time I come back it is no longer listed (this has happened about 2 or 3 times). Am I misunderstanding the system?
I'm having the same issue! I actually started a thread on this topic and Sara Marie said she's asked the Tech Team to look into it ...

Excellent point! I didn't do an 'official' post there because that forum is technically for "third-party products published under the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Compatibility License"
HOWEVER, Gem Dragons has lots of great 'fluff' and the stat blocks are pretty easy to convert over to Pathfinder, so I agree 100% that Pathfinder fans would also get plenty out of it! If you wanted to post something to that effect in the Third-Party Product section, I think that would be awesome :)
Question about Event Trading ...
Should I see my event trade proposal somewhere until it gets accepted?
A few times now, I've done an event trade proposal, and it's appeared under the My Proposed Trades tab for a little while then it vanishes. I then see my proposed trade(s) under the All Available Trades tab for a short time (I know they are mine because there is a note saying I can cancel the proposed trade any time up to it being accepted) but then it vanishes from here as well ...
Is this normal or is something happening to my trade proposals?
I don't have access to my files to check, but I *think* the version in the New Paths Compendium is more or less the same as the version in New Paths 7: The Expanded White Necromancer. There may have been a few small text changes here and there, but I don't think there were any big additions, rules changes etc.
First off, you appear to be new to the Paizo forums - 3 posts (7 including aliases), first post just last month, so ... welcome to the forums.
Sorry to have ruffled your feathers. It is true that some folks use terms like "Barbs" or "Barbies" for some reason. I find using such terms to be dopey and kind of juvenile. The class is called barbarian - why not just use the name? I doubt you'd ever call the class a barby in actual face-to-face conversation (at least, I hope not!) so why do it on a message board? Do you refer to fighters as 'fighties" or sorcerers as "sorcies"?
Anyway, like I said, welcome to the forums.
She does have a valid account. Her account settings were set to not allow email from other paizo.com members, though, and I suspect that might have been an issue.
You might be right - it's been years since I've transferred anything like this, but I *think* the person you are sending to has to accept the transfer, possible via e-mail?
In any case, Paizo's customer service team if first rate - I'm sure they'll get it sorted out on Monday!

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 actually read about the White Necomancer class and it looks pretty fun. It is like the sorcerer class in terms of cha and limited spells.
Oh, I'm definitely very familiar with the White Necromancer from Kobold Press :)
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 ...
FYI, the White Necromancer[/url] was expanded and updated in the New Paths Compendium, also from Kobold Press :)

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

If you are OK with non Paizo material, might I suggest checking out the Shaman class in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press
The New Paths Shaman might be just what you're looking for - it's exactly what you describe!
