@silverhair2008 - The shaman's Animal Spirit Guide grants a bonus, Totem Spell. This spell is different for each Animal Spirit Guide and is listed in the Animal Spirit Guide stat blocks.

Thanks Terokai! I've a number of votes for the White Necromancer to get the mythic treatment (in fact, other than the Spell-less Ranger, White Necromancer and Shaman have received the most votses)

Oh, and a BIG thanks you to Dexion1619 for the new review!

Short but sweet new Deep Magic review over on RPGNow

RPGNow Review wrote:

"Look at that page count there...378 pages. Rune Magic, Ioun Magic and much more.

IMO this is one of the best products Kobold Press has ever published. Seriously, the chapter on new spells alone would be enough to fill at least two other books!"

Andoran

Thanks for all the nice words everyone! The white necromancer class has proven to be quite popular!

This is indeed the same class that first appeared in Kobold Quarterly. I did a few small updates but it's otherwise the same. The New Paths Compendium does have some new material though:

  • New spells including dance of the dead and wall of bones

  • Necrotic Healer and Grave-Bound archetypes (the grave-Bound archetypes includes detailed rules for undead companions that bind you to a loyal ghost, mummy, vampire, skeleton, shadow or zombie)

  • New necromantic feats

Andoran

One of my favorite classes :)

Silentman73, you might want to take a look at the actual product the white necromancer come freom as well :)

New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press.

Andoran

There is an entire section on Scaling Combat Feats in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press.

Might well be worth a look :)

New Paths Compendium is being made Mythic!

True enough!

I'm really excited to create Mythic abilities for a few of the New Paths Compendium classes!

As the recent update implied, it's almost certain that the spell-less ranger will be one of the classes that gets the Mythic treatment. There will not be a formal poll or anything, but if anyone wants to nominate any of the other NPC classes they'd like to see included, by all means let me know!

@ Marc Radle - See? my little question helped keep you in work for a bit longer ;) If we get to informally vote, I'd like to see some Mythic Shaman or White Necromancer goodness :)

Heh - lack of work is not an issue ... lack of time, on the other hand ... :)

Jokes aside, thanks for the suggestions! I think Mythic shaman or white necromancer goodness sounds like a great idea!

Heh ... it takes well over three hours just to drive across my own particular state:)

It is indeed a BIG country!

I was mostly just kidding around with Owen, by the way ... although I do freely admit that driving more than about 3 -4 hours *anywhere* kind of makes me want to seriously contemplate putting an ice pick through my sternum.

Andoran

Really stoked to 'Mythicize' some of the New Paths Compendium content!

And yes, I believe I did indeed just make that word up:)

Well... yeah.

That's what the roads are for, right?

Heh ... :)

If you're going half-way across the friggin' country from Oklahoma to Washington state, roads are for soaring over at high speeds in an airplane! :)

Andoran

Is there any way to stop all these from happening?

This is actually an extremely cool book - more folks need to check it out! :)

So awesome that everyone is digging the book!

Nice Deep Magic review over at Skyland Games:

Overall, this book is a great product. It is overflowing with information and is full of art by very talented individuals. If you are big fan of magic-users and want to play something out of the ordinary or never seen before, this is the book for you. It does not matter if your character is good or evil, there is something for every arcane class. Pick it up, you will not be disappointed.

You know, I find that a good rule with the OGL (and with life really) is this. Strive to do what you believe is the right thing to do. Don't look for shifty grey areas you can exploit just to get what you want.

If a publisher chooses not to make something of thiers open content, that is perfectly acceptable and you should simply respect that and move on. Period.

9 times out 10, if you honestly and sincerely stick with trying to do the right thing, you'll be much better off.

Andoran

I saw that too - debuting at #2 is pretty darned awesome!!!

Andoran

Hey everyone!

The good folks at Dungeonmastering.com approached me about doing a weekly blog about my work etc

dungeonmastering.com

It's called Pen & Pixel

Each week I’ll talk a bit about an illustration from my portfolio, explaining both the brainstorming and the backstory. Then, the reader who posts the Coolest Comment about it and/or that weeks blog (may be something serious or funny or insightful) gets the original illustration mailed to them, for free!

Just an aside ... we don't say pally in these parts. We actually say paladin.

Yeah, from the sounds of it, the producers and writers of the show have ironed out confusing parts, fixed pacing and plot issues and stripped out much of the long and tedious bits to make a tighter show.

I also love the show. I love reading books too but I also don't have much of a desire to read these books. I'm very happy sticking with the show

Andoran

You might check out the New Paths Compendium

I'm a huge animal companion fan, so there are plenty of animal companion improving feats and other goodies within it's pages! :)

As for a good handle on a release date... Let's see, how about we shoot for the end of May, and if it isn't out by then that's completely all right. ;)

Seriously though, I'm now hesitant to make any promises - mostly I'm waiting on some art, and my own abilities to edit a few pieces and/or delegate such editing effectively.

That certainly sounds fair!

Any chance any of Kobold Press's New Paths materials getting a Mythic makeover? (I'm meaning, of course, aside from those relevant things coming in via Deep Magic. Spells are wonderful, but there's some cool class things there for the Hero's Handbook as well).

There's certainly a chance. It depends on how well things continue to progress as well as how much bandwidth Wolfgang and Co. can devote to the project. There are many MANY things that we *could* do, but a finite number of hours in the day and dollars to pay, so we will see in the end how far we can extend our reach.

Oooh, that sounds pretty interesting! Jason, if you want, I might be able to put you in touch with the guy that wrote most of that book ... :)

That actually fits quite well with the new theurge class from Kobold Press's New Paths Compendium.

The theurge casts both arcane and divine spells. He has both a spellbook AND a prayerbook

This thread really makes me want to play a witch or a shaman. Which is saying something, since I hate prepared casters over spontaneous.

That's my undergraduate degree, as well, and I wouldn't go back and do it any differently. A lot of game designers are philosophy folks.

I majored in Communication Design/Commercial Art in college. You don't get more philosophical than that :)

Really thrilled that so many people are enjoying this book! It was truly a MASSIVE undertaking, so it's extremely rewarding to hear so much positive feedback!

Because Deep Magic is such a huge book and it was such a massive undertaking, a few typos and errors were bound to slip in there, despite the absolutely amazing and diligent work of the editors and developers. Heck, even books from Paizo and Wizards sometimes have 'em :)

Please know that correcting these little issues is very important to everyone involved. We are extremely proud of Deep Magic and want it to be as close to perfect as humanly (or koboldly) possible!

[Threadjack] Heh heh- y'know I'm just teasin' ya, right? LAST thing I'd want is for you to get burned out. Just a fan o' your work, eager for more (by-the-by, I picked up the Wondrous Items 1&2 and saw that you'd done to art in there; was that ALL of the art, or the art direction, or...? Because the graphics were simply- WOW.)[/Threadjack]

So, what's this in my mail? a package, you say? and in my e-mail? a PDF?? Great googly-mooglie, it's even bigger than I expected !

and ooohhh... shiny....

Oh sure! Thanks for the nice words, by the way! Yep, art direction, graphic design and art for Wondrous Items 1&2 are my fault :)

Enough about me though! Back to Deep Magic!!!! :)

Ha!!! That video is ... AWESOME!!!!!

I wonder how much we had to pay Peter Jackson to star in that video though?

Does this add to or expand upon the vril technology laid out in sunken empires?
Doc, Deep Magic adds to the vril of Sunken Empires in a BIG way. Rather than focusing on items, however, it turns the lens to the wielders and channelers of vril, with several archetypes, feats, bloodlines, and a host of accompanying spells that allow casters to transmute the arcane energy of 'modern' spells into the raw, primordial force known as vril. Assuming everything made it in (waiting on my copy, too!), then there's also a sidebar addressing how vril wielders can recharge the vril batteries and items from Sunken Empires.

Brandon's Vril stuff in Deep Magic is extremely cool! I was even able to have a pretty awesome illustration commissioned just for the Vril section!

Just real quick: When Terokai is referring to a hardcover, that's supposed to mean hardcopy/ print copy, right? Cuz my (1st printing, color version) is softcover...

Loving everything I've read thus far :)

I assume so, yes. The print version of the New Paths Compendium is definitely softcover.

Yep, there is a very nice synergy between Deep Magic and the New Paths Compendium - in fact, one could almost be seen as a companion to the other

Oh ....

My ...

GOD!!!!!

I received a fairly heavy package today. Inside was not one but TWO copies of the Deep Magic hardback - the beautiful standard version with the amazing cover art and the limited (I think higher-lever backer only) leatherette, silver foil rune cover edition!

All I can say about paging through these is ... Wow, just ... Wow!

The book looks SO good! The paper stock is fantastic, the printing is perfect ... it's just a beautiful book. It blows away every expectation I had by a mile. I could not be happier about the final result.

I'd post more but I need to get back to reading - 375 pages is a BIG book! :)
