By the way, NEW (PATH) BACKER GOAL ANNOUNCED! Just 16 backers away!
Yeah! Ask, and ye shall receive!

Huzzah!

I'm actuall pretty excited for the chance to contribute Mythic versions of some of the New Paths Compendium feats as well as get all Mythic on a few NPC classes :)

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.

It's in the bylaws ...

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! :)

And heck yeah, kudos to the artists and the art director! Having Brom, Ben Wootten, Guido Kuip, Marcel Mercado, Eric Lofgren, and a dozen more makes for a lot of powerful arcane visuals.

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 :)

Andoran

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!!!! :)

Andoran

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!

Happy to hear so many folks commenting on the art! A HUGE amount of time and effort went into insuring the art was as good as it could possibly be for this project! :)

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

So, can we eventually expect a combat book including a complete collection of scaling combat feats and melee subsystems?

Well, have you checked out the New Paths Compendium, also from Kobold Press? It contains a pretty comprehensive section on Scaling Combat Feats ...

(posted in the product thread, but worth posting here as well ...)

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! :)

Interesting!

If you haven't yet, you might want to take a look at the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press.

There is a section on Scaling Combat Feats that addresses this very subject

Hey, I'm a soccer fan too! Woo hoo!

OSW, do you have a good handle on a revised release date for Yggdrasil?

Quick heads up!

Deep Magic, the massive hardcover tome of spells and magic from Kobold Press is now shipping!

Better yet, Deep Magic fully supports the various spell-casting New Paths Compendium classes :)

This previously was not on my radar but I recently relented and got New Paths Compendium and now I have a deep trust of Kobold Press' quality and ability to fill in gaps in the game rather than add superfluous material. That said I just pre-ordered.

So what kind of stuff besides spells are in it? I'm a little late to the bandwagon.

Better late than never! :)

Although a large portion of Deep Magic is spells (lots and LOTS of spells!), there is also a tone of other cool things within: new archetypes, mysteries, bloodlines, mythic material, rituals, words of power ... and a whole lot more!

If you haven't already, take a look at the Deep Magic Kickstarter Page for more info!

Awesome to hear that the New Paths Compendium was what earned your trust! FYI, there are plenty of new spells in Deep Magic for the various New Paths Compendium classes (White Necromancer, Shaman, Elven Archer etc)!

There is an excellent chapter on this very topic by Wolfgang Baur himself in the new Kobold Guide to Magic from Kobold Press

Andoran

Nice! Awesome to see this bad boy featured on the front page!

There is just so much great stuff in this book.

In fact, all the great material actually caused a bit of a problem for me - while I was doing the layout, the articles were so interesting I kept stopping to read them.

Probably cost me an extra couple days of production time! :)

It was also great working with Ralph Horsley on that awesome cover art!

I know the original poster said he would prefer to stick with Paizo only material, which is cool.

However, for those that are OK with Third Party material, you might check out the Vanguard class I wrote for Super Genius Games (now Rogue Genius Games of course):

The Genius Guide to the Vanguard.

The criteria listed by the original poster is pretty much exactly describes the Vanguard to a proverbial "T" :)

Based on the price sir, I'm now strongly considering purchasing this and asking my GM if he will allow it. I tell you this because I am strongly opposed to 3rd party material much of the time, but for the price and the reviews provided by people I believe this may be something even I can support.

I doff my cap to you for making something that even a miser like me can get behind.

Thank you sir - that is high praise ineed!

Hope it lives up to your expectations!

Hmmm ... I've seen him post in other threads recently, so he's not completely MIA :)

Maybe if we cast a heightened summon OSW spell, he might pop in and let everyone know how close Yggdrasil is to being released ...

Yep, the current Hero Lab files were created by a generous fan/volunteer and were certainly nice for folks to have at the time, even though they apparently were not completely functional (I'm not a Hero Lab user, so I can't speak to that more than what I've heard :)

Your best bet is to keep up with (and post your question in) the New Paths Compendium thread. This is where the most up to date info on the Hero Lab files will most likely appear first

Here's what Wolfgang said about the current HL fan files and the soon to be released official HL files, which will include the spell-less ranger:

Wolfgang wrote:

Yeah, it was probably a mistake to include it. At the time, having a volunteer/fan file seemed better than nothing, but having it be incomplete was not ideal.

The new files will be complete, tested by the Hero Lab staff, and much more robust. They'll also be easier to maintain and update.

New 5-star review of the New Paths Compendium

From the review wrote:

One thing I love most is that occasional 3rd party piece of material ... comes out and sweeps me off of my feet. Kobold Press has definitely made that happen with their latest book, New Paths Compendium.

This is easily the best 3rd party book to come out... and I strongly recommend anyone interested in anything mentioned in this review to give this book a shot. You will not be disappointed ...

I'm thrilled to say this makes 8 5-star reviews :)
