If you combine that with the suggestion he's working on Second Darkness, and with the statement that Paizo can't seem to give away the original printings of that AP ...

Well, if you're offering, I'll take a set! :)

I'd love to know more about the three classes.

I'm actually finalizing another class right now, which I'm super excited about, so I actually now have 4 new classes in the can! :)

I probably shouldn't too much about them all just yet, although I can say that one of them is coming out soon as the newest release in the New Paths PDF line ...

Folks that picked up the Kobold Press 2016 Calendar already know a little about the new class (and if you haven't picked up the calendar, what are you waiting for? ")

You can also get a nice peek at the cover art here: February 2016 Kobold Press Calendar Wallpapers :)

Any chance of a spell-less elven archer?

Interesting! Although, that would probably drift too close to the spell-less ranger (and, honestly, an Elven spell-less ranger with the archery combat style will get you 8/10 of the way there! :)

Man, I wish there was more on the Shadow Fey, they're a riot, still the rest of the book is fantastic, to the point where I've bought it even though I own half the advanced races options.

Out of interest, is there any chance of us getting more shadow fey information in the future?

Yes, indeed! The shadow fey have a way of showing up whether they are wanted or not, and there are plans to bring them back as part of a Spring adventure and a Fall release.

God you wonderful people, I can't wait, they're currently being used as the basis of a massive revamp of Fellnight, which is shaping up to be amazing.

Can you give any hints as to what exactly it'll be? Will the adventure be about them directly, or will they be more involved on the side? And is the fall release going to be a source book, or something similar to that? Or something more general?

Have you checked out Shadows of the Dusk Queen??? :)

From the product page:
Mirror, mirror on the wall...

Before you is a dark forest with trees rising as much as a hundred feet into the air. Foreboding and sorrow seem to emanate from within. Occasionally, shadowy creatures are glimpsed moving among the trees. Slow, plaintive howls echo among the dark branches as a cool wind begins to blow, as if whispering barely discernible words...

"She has returned. She has returned. She has returned."

"Shadows of the Dusk Queen" is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game compatible adventure for 8th-level characters that takes players deep into a forest out of a dark fairy tale, where a long-imprisoned fey queen has returned – and evil creatures are stirring.

Might I suggest Frozen Castle - Expanding Tyranny of Dragons

Currently #3 on the Top 10 Most Popular DMs Guild Titles List :)

Liberty's Edge

I'd avoided posting here, since it's not an official Paizo product, but since others are doing so, here it goes ... :)

The just-released Advanced Races Compendium hard cover from Kobold Press, has an entire chapter devoted to playing a natural lycanthope (specifically the werelion)

It's well-worth checking out!

Liberty's Edge

Hey everyone!

Although not exactly a Pathfinder version of Savage Species (the creation of which the inimitable Mr. Swank clearly has well under control! :), I though if ever there were a group of people who might be interested in the just-released Advanced Races Compendium hard cover from Kobold Press, it would be this group!

From the product page:
"The Advanced Races Compendium gives you everything you need to play a monstrous adventurer in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Its pages are packed with PC racial feats, traits, spells, bloodlines, gear, magic items, archetypes and more for Gearforged, Lizardfolk, Kobolds, Tiefling, Gnolls, Shadow Fey and more — and it’s easy to adjust these classic and new races to suit your campaign’s power level."

Please consider giving the Advanced Races Compendium a gander! Thanks!!!

Liberty's Edge

As Deranged_Maniac_Ben said, the just-released Advanced Races Compendium from Kobold Press has an entire (greatly expanded and revised) chapter on a construct race - the Gearforged)!

Full game mechanics, background and history, class archetypes ... the works :)

I'd definitely recommend giving it a gander!

I'm looking to play a caster/necromancer. But I don't want to do a whole "army" of undead. I was thinking one core undead that i keep around permanently with disguise and robes etc. What would be a good class to pick for said idea? Since I've heard about cleric necromancers wizards sorcerers and not doing caster I'm really unsure which one to play/use.

As for concept of the char/idea. I was thinking one major undead I help/control that I also keep maintained. while i sit back attack with spells/range and also possibly buff every including said creature/minion.

I would suggest you take a good look at the White Necromancer class in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press!

In addition to being a non-evil necromancer class, there's an archetype called the Grave-Bound that literally focuses on a specific undead companion (choices include ghost, zombie, mummy, skeleton, vampire, etc) which scales in power as the Grave-Bound White Necromancer increases in level, including gaining new abilities as the Necromancer gets stronger.

I think the class (and specifically the Grave-Bound archetype) might be exactly what you are looking for!

Check out the reviews and see what you think! White Necromancer

I'm looking into plane tickets for me and my son, trying to recall the schedule of things at PaizoCon. Am I correct in my recollection that on Monday there is only a morning session, which ends at 1:00?

And when do things typically get started on Friday? In past years, we've flown up from Cali early Sat morning, but I'd like to get in Friday evening this time.

Friday: We open registration around 7am and there is a PFS session that starts at 8am. Many other games, seminars and workshops (run by Paizo staff and 3rd party publishers or community members) start between 8am - 11am).

Sunday: Monday: There is 1 PFS session and other major games. A number of other seminar and workshops. I think the officially ending is around 2pm with people slowly filtering out to catch flights or drive home and events winding down.
I don't recall scheduling anything past 2pm in past paizocon's.
Erik Mona does do a Miniature Trading afterparty at around 3pm at the hotel bar.

Wait, doesn't the Con run 4 days this year? When you describe Sunday above, do you actually mean Monday? Shouldn't Sunday be a full day of events like Saturday?

You bet!!!

Channeling is literally one of the worst designed parts of a cleric ... changing what is typically a completely ignored class feature to a less-than-ignored class feature ...

Channeling can be very situational, to be sure, but I think there are ways to make more interesting and more useful without having to completely re-design it from the ground up ...

I think the most current version of the kingdom buildig rules are in Ultimate Campaign

You can take a look at them in the Pathfinder PRD

The chapter/title art of each race is amazing. I loved the Dhampir. From first read through - fantastic stuff. I mean, I expect that from Kobold anyway, but this one is really really good.

High praise indeed! :)

New Dungeons & Dragons 5e Adventure from Kobold Press

Tyranny Expanded: A Return to Skyreach Castle!
The loss of Skyreach Castle in Hoard of the Dragon Queen was a major setback to the Cult of the Dragon, but still only a setback. The cult is determined to retake the castle and claim Tiamat's lost treasure buried in its frozen walls and cloudstuff vaults, but they aren't the only ones. Giants and creatures of the frozen wastes wish to claim that wealth themselves!

This 5E compatible adventure is designed for 10th- and 11th level characters, and is set in the Forgotten Realms.

Available now from Dungeon Master's Guild for just $2.99

Liberty's Edge

Now that books are starting to arrive, who will be the first to post a review? :)

Liberty's Edge

I was wondering that as well ...

Speaking of tickets, anyone recall how much a ticket to the Con plus the Banquet was last year?

The Books Are Shipping Now! :)

In fact, folks near Kobold world headquarters have already reported receiving their copies!

Sounds like the PDF will be released on Monday as well!

Liberty's Edge

Comp copies usually tend to go out after all the actual paying customers' copies have been sent out ...

I know the Shipping dept. of the Kobold mines has been busily shipping books out for a few days now, so it's very possible folks (especially those living nearest said mines) will be receiving their books now!

So deinol, tell us more about how lovely it looks! :)

Per PRD:

Full-Round Action: A full-round action consumes all your effort during a round. The only movement you can take during a full-round action is a 5-foot step before, during, or after the action. You can also perform free actions and swift actions (see below). See Table: Actions in Combat for a list of full-round actions.

For me, my faves are:

New Paths Compendium: Most of the classes therein are cool and interesting enough to use. My faves are the white necromancer, the savant, and the theurge.

Southlands Campaign Setting: Interesting worlds which explore a fantasy counterpart Africa and Middle East with integration of RPG tropes, an underused part of the world in many campaign settings.

Woo hoo! :)

The upcoming Advanced Races Compendium hard cover from Kobld Press has a very nice, beefy chapter on Drow!

The prevailing theory is indeed that Snoke is really Darth Plagueis.

If true, I think it would actually have some pretty cool and interesting ramifications for the new trilogy ...

I'm pretty sure that when they said the EU was dead, they nailed the coffin shut. I'm going with the idea that Snoke is a new creation that will be retrofitted into the background of all the previous movies as the one who's been in charge of the whole Sith shebang from episode 1 and perhaps before.

Darth Plagueis isn't EU, he was mentioned in the Prequels, and therefore canon.

No problem!

I'd hate if someone reviewed something I wrote, did the layout and graphic design for, or illustrated and then couldn't edit it (hopefully to give it an even BETTER rating :)

Seriously, glad I could help!

Liberty's Edge

Probably should shoot them an e-mail in case they want to fix that!

Yeah Thaumaturge was the new one.
Close - The new class is actually called the Theurge :)
That is what I get for not bothering to look it up. *sigh*

Yeah Thaumaturge was the new one. It was a pretty good class, although I prefer The Magister for my "can cast arcane and divine spells both" class - I'm partial to spontaneous caters. There is also the "prestige archtypes" books that take a prestige class and morph it into a full base class, and they did the Mystic Theurge - so we have three of those that I know of.

Hey! Anyone want to get wild and crazy and get back to just talking about the Force Awakens Movie?

I know all this random talk about strange, non-canon, expanded universe stuff is an absolute hoot, but, you know, the title of the thread is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so, ya know, maybe we can get back to just talking about the movie?

I know, I know, it's a nutty idea, but who knows, maybe it'll stick ...

Liberty's Edge

Agreed - I suspect most of the info in the last few posts comes from non canon sources because I don't recall hearing any of it in the movies
