Nothing, huh?

Let me see if I can cast summon kobold ...

Andoran

Yeah, I love Paizo but I must admit the whole hunter can teach his animal companion hunters' tricks from the skirmisher archetype is unfortunately very confusing, problematic and, I hate to say it, poorly designed.

I suspect there is a pretty extensive ACG errata brewing right now within the walls of Paizo and I really hope this is on it (of course, given the number of FAQ requests so far, I'm betting it will be!)

Folks anxious for the Hero Lab files for the New Paths Compendium (and there are a LOT of you!) might want to keep thier eyes and ears open tomorrow (Friday)

Just sayin' :)

Really glad the Scaling Combat Feats in the New Paths Compendium are improving games! They are one of the things I'm most proud of in that book :)

I'm thinking about playing a druid or some other nature-based class but I'm concerned ... does most of this take place within the spire / dungeon? I'm wondering if a class such as druid will feel useful or not ...

Thanks!

Thank you, Steve and Blue_Drake!

And yes, designing this while the core rules were still in flux was a challenge. But I'm extremely happy with how it turned out.

Fortunately kobolds thrive in challenging circumstances! :)

Wow ...

Josh and I exchanged a number of e-mails over the years and he always struck me as a really decent guy who was passionate about gaming.

He used to tell me how much of a fan he was of my illustration work (which really meant a lot to me) - when he had his stroke a while back, I sent him an original of one of my illustrations with a 'get well and hang in there' note and he seemed so genuinely appreciative ... it was really touching.

Really sad to hear he's gone ...

Basic Expert Companion Master Immortal

A set of box sets that ran concurrently with 1e and 2e AD&D, offering a somewhat simpler game. Basic was level 1-3, Expert 4-14, Companion 15-25, and Master 26-36, with Immortal giving rules for playing nearly godlike post-level 36 characters.

Ah! OK, thanks!

I actually know what those are - I just never saw them abbreviated like that (or, at all actually :)

Normally, when someone uses an abbreviation like this, they explain it and/or write it out the first time it is used to make sure everyone knows what is being talked about.

OK, I'm up to speed now ... carry on!

We always start new players and/or characters at the same level as the rest of the party. Starting at a lower level isn't fun for anyone (the player, the GM or the rest of the party).

With all due respect to your GM, in this case he's incorrect. Trust me, start the new player at the same level unless you want a lot of aggravation for little or no payoff

Perhaps a bit more information and context here would be helpful ...

Is this something that happens in the books or is Lena Headey just prone to walk naked through the streets?

I am going to wipe that god-aweful 'pally' slang from people's lexicon if it kills me!!! :)

You don't talk about wizzies, rangeo's and sorcies, do you?

Sheesh!!!!!

No, I do talk about the Wiz and Sorc though. There isn't much of a consensus between games for the archer classes, though. You've also got the Barb.

:D

Good point - I forgot about the equally dopey Wiz, Sorc and Barb, but they are on the Official 'Dumb Game Slang Terms That Need to Stop' list too!

Good lord people! Is it really that hard to just type wizard, sorcerer, barbarian and paladin???? :/

Anyway, since PAIZO accepted this last Psionic book as compatible with PF, did they ever used any of four basic psionic classes in their adventures or AP?

Not sure what you mean by this. To the best of my knowledge, Paizo hasn't officially accepted the Deamscarred Psionic book as official content. The fact that it has Pathfinder Compatible on the cover just means that Dreamscarred published the book under the appropriate license. There are many many Third Party books that are Pathfinder Compatible - they are still not considered official content by Paizo

Andoran

Sorry, but I have to ask ... a grope????

Andoran

Hey, ours was first - tell Paizo to change their name!!!! :)

In all seriousness, no intention of changing the name. I think folks will be able to keep them straight :)

Have you considered releasing a document updating the spell lists of the new classes in the ACG with the spells from Deep magic?

Well, you should already be able to use the Shaman spells for the Paizo class.

That was my thought as well.

Since Kobold Press already had a very popular Shaman class (*cough* you know ... before the APG was ever announced *cough* :) there are lots of cool spells in Deep Magic that already are designated as Shaman spells. I'd certainly start with those!

Andoran

I'm probably crazy, but for some reason I thought there was a feat to upgrade a familiar after Improved Familiar ... you know, Greater Familiar or something ...

I'm not finding it now though, so I probably am just nuts :]

Anyone have any ideas what I'm thinking of?

Thanks!!!

Methinks I'm sensing a Kickstarter ....

The new PDF also now includes bookmarks in the HUGE spell section of the book for each individual letter of the alphabet to make navigation even more user friendly :)

Haven't picked this up yet, but I have a quick question: does the arcanist get a familiar (or *can* he get one through an archetype or anything)?

Thanks!

I imagine at this point the 'zine is just about ready for prime time though. OSW, can you give everyone an update and ETA?

Thanks!

I agree such things are beneficial and it's great when publishers provide them.

However, make no mistake - the additional cost and effort required on the publisher's part is far from negligible!

Andoran

You might check out the shaman class in the New Paths Compendium - it has exactly the kind of animal spirits you describe :)

If there is going to be a new PDF released, can we please get bookmarks for the spell descriptions by letter, too? 160 pages without any breaks is very difficult to navigate.

Not a bad idea ... I think that might be arranged :)

I have a question regarding the duration of spells. Using the spell shield as an example, It states that the duration is 1 minute per level.

I feel like this is likely supposed to mean 1 minute per spell level, but then I figured that supernatural abilities that use this sort of duration would be 0 rounds because they may not be tied to a level, but instead a race or some other aspect of the character. I suspect it means its not caster level, but total level.

Anyways... if I am a level 1 sorcerer, and a level 1 fighter, does shield last for one minute, or two? If you could direct me to the specific rules regarding this, that would be great, because I have not been able to find any clarification in the book, or online.

Thank you in advance for your input.

It means 'per level in the class granting you the spell or ability' so, in your example you are 1 1st level sorcerer casting the spell so it will last for 1 minute.

Core Rulebook - Magic

Caster Level
A spell's power often depends on its caster level, which for most spellcasting characters is equal to her class level in the class she's using to cast the spell.

You can cast a spell at a lower caster level than normal, but the caster level you choose must be high enough for you to cast the spell in question, and all level-dependent features must be based on the same caster level.

In the event that a class feature or other special ability provides an adjustment to your caster level, that adjustment applies not only to effects based on caster level (such as range, duration, and damage dealt), but also to your caster level check to overcome your target's spell resistance and to the caster level used in dispel checks (both the dispel check and the DC of the check).

Those Pathfinder iconics shirts look awesome!

Does anyone have any of them? I'm curious about the tee shirt material itself ... is it really thin or nice and thick? Quality shirt or typical, thin discount store t-shirt?

Just read the review by FelwynGD ...

It reads: I am excited for the book but right now it says the pdf is available but will not let me buy it. Kinda of a let down.

So, he gives the book a bad review because he can't download it yet? Which of course means he hasn't even read it?

Come on FelwynGD - that's not what reviews are for. I would seriously consider taking your review down or, at the very least, changing it once you've actually read the book

Andoran

This shirt looks awesome!

Also, this was mentioned in yesterday's blog post but ... is it intentional that this are being tagged as PaizoCon?

Casey Weston wrote:

Btw why is this tagged with paizocon :/?

I was wondering this as well. Today's GenCon post is also tagged as PaizoCon :/

Andoran

Ack! No picture!

Andoran

That's not quite how it works. When Paizo has a job opening, they go through a long, exhaustive and comprehensive search to insure they get the best people possible.

You also will want to become much more familiar and experienced with things like the OGL before you entertain trying to break into the industry. Once you are completely up to speed, you might contact a 3PP with a short solicitation inquiry about your idea - one might be interested enough to give you a shot, who knows

Do we know approximately when retailers will actually have the book in stock and available for sale?

Andoran

You could always just pick up a copy of the New Paths Compendium which has an entire section on Scaling Combat Feats, including Scaling Two-Weapon Fighting (which the OP's version above looks to be a more or less exact copy of ...)

Thanks Liz! Great to see Advanced Races Shadow Fey featured!

As I mentioned in the product thread, I'm working on an adventure and I am definitely using some of the awesome material from Advanced Races Shadow Fey!:)
