Sounds good!

Liberty's Edge

I don't think I've ever been called that before ... :)

It'll be fun to see if anyone can figure out which illustration I'm talking about once the book is released :)

Liberty's Edge

I've written literally HUNDREDS of art briefs for the Core Southlands book alone, but I think I just might have written the most unique, off the wall yet coolest art briefs yesterday for the book :)

Liberty's Edge

How's that for service? :)

Thanks very much! I think it's the decent thing to do. Please consider joining up or spreading the word, if you can!
Perhaps spelling your name correctly would be a good place to start... ;p

I usually spell it 'Cryton' - there's no need for all those odd, extra letters in the middle ... they just confuse people! :)

Declaring the name of a class (or whatever) product identity and the mechanics open content does prevent anyone from referencing your class (or whatever) while making open everything else, but it can also lead to multiple, identical classes (or whatever) that are different in name only, which is kind of against the original spirit of the OGL ...

I think it's better to either declare the entire thing (class, item, etc) Product Identity (ie closed content) if appropriate OR make it entirely open, especially if you'd like others to refer back to your product whenever someone else uses what you created in their product.

Cool, a THIRD thread on this subject ... sigh ...

Aquatic Terrain

Lots of good stuff there.

Of note:

Spellcasting Underwater: Casting spells while submerged can be difficult for those who cannot breathe underwater. A creature that cannot breathe water must make a concentration check (DC 15 + spell level) to cast a spell underwater (this is in addition to the caster level check to successfully cast a fire spell underwater). Creatures that can breathe water are unaffected and can cast spells normally. Some spells might function differently underwater, subject to GM discretion.

Fire: Spells or spell-like effects with the fire descriptor are ineffective underwater unless the caster makes a caster level check (DC 20 + spell level). If the check succeeds, the spell creates a bubble of steam instead of its usual fiery effect, but otherwise the spell works as described. A supernatural fire effect is ineffective underwater unless its description states otherwise. The surface of a body of water blocks line of effect for any fire spell. If the caster has made the caster level check to make the fire spell usable underwater, the surface still blocks the spell's line of effect.

I did a fair amount or research on the subject when I was writing The Sunken Pyramid. I actually compiled all the relevant under-water combat and spell-casting rules in an appendix to that book to make the GM's life a little easier ...

Liberty's Edge

Not sure how germane it is to your question, but are you playing Third Edition D&D or Pathfinder. I ask because, to the best of my knowledge, the Book of Drakes from Kobold Press is a Pathfinder RPG book.

As for your actual question, maybe I can summon one or both of the authors ... :)

For those looking for non evil-necromancer options, including non-evil undead, you might check out the White Necromancer class from Kobold Press

You can also get the White Necromancer in the New Paths Compendium, also from Kobold Press :)

Liberty's Edge

There is a bunch of awesome Ioun Stone material in Deep Magic from Kobold Press. Definitely worth checking out.

Liberty's Edge

Awesome, thanks! (Doing links on my phone is a chore!)

Because I can't make it out again this year.

Cross country plane tickets are not cheap :(

Liberty's Edge

Nice!

Sounds like you need to add some New Paths Compendium classes to that mix! ;)

Liberty's Edge

Most people still buy print books and print is not going away any time soon. The number of folks going all digital is certainly increasing, but they are still very much in the minority.

Print is still very much were it's it for the majority of the book buying public

If I play a character with Power Attack, I always use it. I figure the bonuses and penalties right into my basic attack numbers and then never look back.

Liberty's Edge

You might also look at the Spell-less Ranger class in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press.

While not a direct conversion, the Spell-less Ranger has a lot of similarities with the Scout, and can easily serve as a Scout replacement. There are even ranger talents specifically designed to make the Spell-less Ranger even more Scout-like if that's what you are looking for!

Liberty's Edge

You bet - glad I could help! :)

Errata is released when we start shipping a new printing. It will be available on the PRD, as a PDF download, and the PDF of the product itself will be updated all on the same day. I assure you that once this is publicly available the announcement will be difficult to miss.

This statement is true for all products in the RPG line (and any other RPG products we reprint with errata incorporated). But it's also important to note that we don't announce when (or generally even *if*) we're going to ship a new printing until we actually start shipping that printing, which happens only when A) we've sold through the previous printing and B) the product has safely arrived in our warehouse. (A and B don't necessarily happen in that order every time.) As Ashram pointed out, if everybody waited for the next printing, that printing would never come out.

Didn't Eric make a statement to the effect that, in the case of the ACG, you were going to go against your normal policy and release the big errata dump sooner than the net printing, due to the huge number of errors? I'm about 98% sure that was the word ...

Liberty's Edge

In that case, you'd just have to compare each of the skin-changer's class abilities with the spell-less ranger's class abilities and figure out what gets replaced.

For instance, Animal Shape, lesser, which the skin-changer gets at 1st level clearly would replace Favored Enemy. Animal Combat, which the skin-changer gets at 2nd level would replace Combat Style. Animal Shape would replace Hunter's Bond etc.

Of course, if you are trying to make an archetype for a Core ranger (as opposed to a New Paths Compendium spell-less ranger) you'll have to decide what you want to do about class abilities such as Ranger Talents, Nature’s Healing and Stealth Attack which are exclusive to the spell-less ranger and skin-changer alternate class

Hope that helps!

@d@ncingNumfar - awesome!
Couldn't agree more :)

@Ariakon - this was updated in the New Paths Compendium, but I don't know if we ever updated the individual White Necromancer PDF ...

However, here is the information for which you seek :)

20th Level Advancement
The zombie companion gains a bonus feat; its slam attack increases to 3d8. Its damage resistance increases to DR 15/slashing.

Hope that helps!

Normally that's true, Paizo coordinates the errata release of a given book with a new printing.

In the case of the Advanced Class Guide however, everyone (including Eric Mona himself) has admitted that, due to the unacceptable number of errors, the APG would get its first big errata released before the book's second printing.

My understanding is that the designers have turned in all their errata, which is now being edited and otherwise gone over with the proverbial fine-toothed comb before it is released.

Not sure why it's taking so long, but Paizo has acknowledged the issues and is working to fix them sooner than later. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt.

Liberty's Edge

Hey there Alex.

The skin-change is actually a full-blown alternate class of the spell-less ranger (much like the anti-paladin is an alternate class of the paladin). Alternate classes are certainly similar to archetypes, but they are more involved so they are presented as a full class in and of themselves instead of just a handful of replacement abilities as is done for archetypes.

So, I don't think you can think of the skin-changer as a simple ranger archetype. It is a complete class by itself.

Does that help?

Really interesting thread!!!

Thanks so much for mentioning the Theurge class from Kobold Press. It has proven to be very popular. In fact, the Theurge, and the New Paths Compendium the class comes from have both been very well reviewed :)

Liberty's Edge

Hey Will!

You are perfectly fine posting about a third party class or product here on Paizo's forums. Paizo loves third party companies - heck, they even sell loads of 3PP stuff in their online store and even feature top third party companies on this site's front page. They even set up the Third Party forums, which you correctly posted to! Not sure why someone always feels the need to make a comment about 3PP not being PFS legal, since we all know that TONS of folks play in home Pathfinder games and not in PFS.

Glad you like the Theurge class from Kobold Press. It has proven to be very popular. In fact, the Theurge, and the New Paths Compendium the class comes from have been very well reviewed.

@DinosaursOnIce, fair enough. However, I can tell you the Theurge was extensively and thoroughly play tested and, in actual play, is a very balanced class :)

I cannot understand how anyone can, with a straight face, say D&D doesnt have a strong brand in the wider non-gamer communtiy. It's pretty much the definition of a strong, persistent brand - it invented an industry and is still going strong thirty/forty years later despite all the evolutions of gaming culture in that time. How well the RPG does is a tiny component of that - no matter how excited we get about where advantage/disadvantage sits on the 'dumbed down to brilliant' scale or what we personally think is an ideal rate of sourcebook production.
Yeah. If D&D is a weak brand, then Pathfinder is a g#*!+!n non-existent brand. To the average non-gamer, if D&D is Coke, Pathfinder is NOT Pepsi, it's Leninade.

Prefer Vimto, TYVM. And before you ask, no I'm not one of those johnnies-come-lately who started drinking it when they read A Small Killing by Moore and Zarate. My parents used to by for me at Job Lot when I was a tyke!

Yes, I have played the Elfquest RPG, why do you ask?

Not only did we play the Elfquest RPG, I still have on my shelf right now :)

It might be worth checking out the Scaling Combat Feats section in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press

Scaling Combat Feats were created to address pretty much this very thing.

At mid levels, using chill touch via major magic for touch sneak attacks, with a valet familiar outflank buddy sharing your sneak attacks, yes.

Bwuahahahahaha!

I can't even take this seriously.

*shrug* Then don't. Carnivalist rogue with a valet familiar shares teamwork feats and sneak attack dice with the familiar. With outflank plus paired opportunists they both have a +4 to attack and will gain attacks of opportunity on a crit.

At that point you are basically a touch attack hunter with sneak attack.

It's an extremely powerful build despite being on a rogue chassis. It's not as good as a hunter or sacred huntmaster, but it's much stronger than the sum of its parts.

Where is the Carnivalist rogue from???

Also, what is a 'valet familiar'?
