Wizard:
* A white necromancer who can animate non-evil undead (perhaps by summoning up ancestors / only being able to animate those who were willing prior to their death / using some manner of metaphysical trickery to get around the 'wrapping up a positive-energy soul with negative energy is evil because of how it affects the soul' thing)

It's an actual class as opposed to an archetype, but you might check out the White Necromancer class in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press!

The class does pretty much exactly what you are describing! :)

Really extremely pleased that this book got a nomination. It's loaded with good material from very savvy designers and writers.

I'd appreciate your vote in the Best Aid/Accessory Category!

Done!

Thank you sir!

I prefer the new design with bigger graphics and brighter colors. Show cases the art instead of hiding it.

Even if you can't get words on the spine a color stripe or printed pattern would help identify the book. For example Kobold Press's Trapsmith book extends the cover art onto the spine, so even though there are no words I can quickly recognize it.

I really enjoy the Legendary books I've picked up, that's just my one nitpick.

Keep in mind though - Kobold Press' art director and main graphic designer is extremely talented (not to mention painfully humble). Normal folks could certainly never hope to ascend to his loftly level of super-awesomeness! :)

Yeah, this is full of some very interesting ideas.

I'm in the process of fine-tuning up an adventure I'm writing which just happens to have a magic mirror in it ... and you can bet I'll be using a cool idea or two from this!

I do love me some Sinister Secrets of Saltmarsh etc, but I'm hoping Marc Radle's sahuagin adventure for Raging Swan Press scratches that itch...

Hey, wow! I'm reading through the thread, learning all this cool stuff about the upcoming Giantslayer Ap and never expected to see a shout out! I REALLY appreciate it though - I'm incredibly proud of the The Sunken Pyramid, which is absolutely an homage to the awesome Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh AD&D adventure!

I actually wrote a couple of design blogs about the adventure over on the Raging Swan site including this one which goes into more detail about how the adventure really is kind of my love letter to the Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh:)

Since I'm feeling all nostalgic about the Sunken Pyramid, I'll leave you with a few teachings from the sahuagin cal’mecac ("sayings of the old"):

Where is your heart?
You give your blood to each thing in turn
Carrying, you do not carry it...
To give your blood is to give your soul
To spill blood from your enemy is to know strength
There is much blood to spill - everyone is your enemy

— from the sahuagin cal’mecac ("sayings of the old")

Blinding light and flowing dark,
Life, death, strength, weakness, blood and stone
From the Time of the Seven Caves, to the Time of the End
and all is for us!

— from the sahuagin cal’mecac ("sayings of the old")

No one comes to the world to stay
Not stone, not gods, not bone or sea
Yet blood is eternal,
Soul and forever, flowing like fire in the deep.

— from the sahuagin cal’mecac ("sayings of the old")

Battle is the song of a thousand cries
Let yours sound loudest
Your beating heart the most sought after prize
To give it, the most sacred gift

— from the sahuagin cal’mecac ("sayings of the old")

OK, enough of that! Back to more Giantslayer goodness!

Hey everyone - hopefully you'll indulge me, but I wanted to mention that a number of the class concepts that have come up in this thread are already available in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press!. If you use non-Paizo material in your game, please give the book a look!

A number of folks have said they want a martial, non-caster shapeshifter. Take a look at the skin-changer, a variant of the spell-less ranger class that trades out things like hunter's bond and combat styles for a druid-like animal shape ability right from 1st level and a specialized animal combat style

For those looking for a full 20 level Mystic Theurge style arcane/divine base class, the New Path Compendium presents the theurge!

Looking for a spontaneous casting version of the druid, with abilities and flavor like the sorcerer or oracle - the NPC has the shaman, complete with totem secrets and an animal spirit guide.

Looking for a class a bit like the warlock, a martial caster with energy blasts which can be modified as he increases in level? Check out the battle scion - the ultimate martial blaster. :)

The NPC has received 11 5-star reviews, including one from Endzeitgeist himself and there's a lot of other good stuff including a number of other new classes (including the spell-less ranger, white necromancer, elven archer, and savant) so please check it out. Those of you looking for unrealized Pathfinder RPG classes might find that the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press! is just what the doctor ordered! :)

Andoran

I'm looking forward to the first reviews! :)

I recommend minotaurs. The stat penalties for them in Midgard Campaign Setting seem a bit harsh, but they're a flavorful species that could really benefit from support.

Might I suggest you read Wolfgang's comment again? There might be a clue in there somewhere ...

Or maybe not, what do I know? :)

Andoran

They are absolutely doing it. The movie takes place in and around New York, 70 years before the events of Harry Potter, so some time in the 1940's ...

The movie is about Newt Scamander, the author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a textbook used by the students at Hogwarts.

Now an old man, he is retired. He has a grandson named Rolf, who married Luna Lovegood some time after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

I would not be at all surprised if they start the movie in the near future, after after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows where Scamander recounts the adventures of his youth when he gains all the knowledge and experience that eventually lead up to his writing the book he became famous for ... similar to how the Hobbit movie began with an old Bilbo recounting his There and Back Again tale to Frodo.

Andoran

@silverhair2008 - awesome! Sounds like a fun game

@nightflier - looking forward to it!!!!

Yeah, this one is very cool. Obviously my main focus is on the layout, graphic design etc ... but I do tend to sneak in a little reading as well :)

I'd be very keen to play a gnoll now! :)

I do have an update! The New Paths files are very close.

Right now, it's looking like July is a long shot but possible. If it is not out in August I will wear a funny gnomish and dance a jig.

Wolfgang speaks the truth! I've been exchanging a quite a few e-mails with the team doing the Hero Lab files for the New Paths Compendium, so I can confirm that they are well under way!!!

Andoran

My family and I loved the books and the movies. I'm willing to give Rowling the benefit of the doubt. She seems like a pretty decent person who just really loves writing stories, especially stories that take place in the Potter world she created.

As long as these new movies are well written and well done, I have no problem with them at all.

Andoran

Me too. In all the many years I've played the game, and all the different people I've played with, I've actually never, *ever* seen anything but some form of true roll your stats character creation!

I like rolling way too much. That sense of randomness, anticipation and excitement from rolling stats is just too much a part of the game's fabric for me to ever want to give point buy much serious consideration

So, to the OP I say absolutely ditch point buy and give rolling a shot.

Before you put a bunch of work into this, have you looked at the Shaman Class from Kobold Press (New Paths Compendium)? It's almost exactly what you are describing.

I was about to suggest the very same thing :) Please check it out!

New Paths Compendium

Here's the store text for the shaman to give you a little better idea what the class is about:

The Spontaneous Druid

It's odd that the mystic druid must prepare spells ahead of time—so now he doesn't! The shaman is a nature and spirit-focused spontaneous caster, with otherworldly new abilities and an animal spirit guide.

The removal of prepared spells makes this a more mystical and freeform nature-based caster, and the new powers and expanded wildshape and totem abilities mean that the Shaman is both flexible and powerful. Marvel at the new spirit dance, improved wildshape powers, and totem secrets, which grant additional powers beyond the ken of mere druids.

The New Paths Companion also includes three new shaman archetypes - the elemental shaman, primal shifter, and witch doctor, plus new feats and spells specific to the Shaman that make them masters of the spirit world and an expanded list of animal spirit guides. The book even includes a host of tracking sheets, including ones for animal spirit companion (easily used for standard animal companions as well) and wildshape forms.

You might take a look at Learning Curve: Apprentice-Level Characters from Tricky Owlbear Publishing

Apprentice-Level Characters allows players to (among other things!) start their adventuring career as a half-level PC and is perfect for creating realistic yet still playable young characters

It's cool ... Cool to the power of seven :)

Heck of a game! Germany was definity the better team though and deserved to win.

And that goal was awesome!

Was Silva hurt? I thought he missed the game due to 2 yellow cards/red card. If if was a card issue, then he should be available to Saturday's game I believe, yes?

I'm also curious how that game will go. It seems to me Brazil will either be so demoralized and defeated mentally and emotionally that they will play horribly OR they will be so desperate to save face after their 7-1 crushing that they will come out and play with an absolute vengeance. I don't see much of a middle ground between those two scenarios.

I'm not a huge Germany fan, but I respect the heck out of them and I REALLY want to see Germany over Argentina on Sunday.

Heh - close :) The books are my son's and I got him Ultimate Psionics for his birthday (the full color, hardback version ... yeah, I'm an awesome dad :)

So, since he no longer needs the Psionics Unleashed or Psionics Expanded, we figured why not let some other psionics fan get the benefit of these books :)

Both auctions end tomorrow (Friday, so this is pretty much last call :)

I must say that I'm excited that the change of venue should help to address a lot of the concerns posted here. It's safe to expect a less crowded PFS room (and thus a quieter room as well) AND room for more non-PFS games with the change in venue.

That is awesome to hear! Combined with the move to 4 days instead of 3 and PaizoCon 2015 sounds fantastic!!!

Heads up! :)

Only a little over a day left on these - if you'd like one or both of these books at much lower than retail price, click thee on the link(s) post haste!
