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

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!

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 ...
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, 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 ...
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!
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?

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 :)
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!
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
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!!!
