As racial adjustments (and presumably templates) are applied after generating ability scores it would cost 3 points to raise that stat to 13; then once you apply the -6 from race and young he'll have the 7 he wants.
See the second line in Generating Ability Scores in the PRD section for Ability scores.
The aardwolf is not a wolf at all, or even a canine, but an insectivorous relative of the hyena.
They are in fact suborder Feliforma, meaning they're closer to cats than dogs!
Edited for clarification

The typical meaning of munchkin these days is along the same lines as power gamer, or min-maxing.
Originally however it meant playing to your GMs tastes to curry favour. "If your GM likes munchkins (from Wizard of Oz,) then play a munchkin."

However some/one archetype (Beast Master) don't have that line in their Animal Companion ability; so it's a nice bonus for those archetypes that do lose it.
My opinion is to just use the Beastmaster archetype and 1 level of druid to open all AC choices. Just remember you to split your effective druidism level amoung all your ACs.
No need to dip to gain all AC choices...

Unlike a normal Ranger, a beast master’s choice of animal companion is not limited to a subset of all possibile animal companion choices—he may choose freely among all animal companion choices, just as a Druid can.

A bit late to the party here, but regards the octogenarian librarian and falling. Assuming he or she is human at 80+ years of age they'll definitely be in the Venerable age bracket which would give them a -6 to Con. So unless they where a very health individual earlier in life I'd suspect they've only got one or two hit points per level by this point... My money is on the blacksmith :) (Or both dying)
Great looking book, love the maps, especially the "In World" centre spread, and the caravan routes.
I'm curious how dangerous some of those are, especially the Sklarkar route that looks like it heads straight into the Hold of Belkzen. (OK, looking at the map again it's just that one I'd have some trepidation following :) )
Having just been given a coffee siphon, I too approve of the description. They combine two of my favourite things, Science! and Coffee! and now with that description, three of my favourite things, Science!, Coffee! and Roleplaying Games! :)

Another example is Steve Jackson Games and their Kickstarter for Ogre. They where always going to release it, but by using Kickstarter they've massively increased the awesomeness in the final product, as well as boosting the print run. And because of the success of Ogre (and it being one of their stretch goals) they'll be doing similar for Car Wars next year.

This might be an error,
I presume the latter should be Improved Uncanny Dodge given the level it comes in.
And it appears I did not recall correctly, so my adjusted list is as follows (adjustments italicized)
And Ciaran, I do apologize for listing 16 out of the 19 available classes, but when you get 8 classes ties for third place...
From what I recall, in the 5 adventure paths I've been in...
In the current Kingmaker game, the first Rogue in the group died and the player brought in a second, so it could be seen as 4 Rogues total.
The game just before Pathfinder had a core of a Fighter, a Cleric, and a Wizard/Rogue/Arcane Trickster. IIRC there was also a Druid and an other Wizard that briefly showed up.
Thanks again. :)
Now about her ears...
Just kidding :)
Excellent art as always :) I think you've mostly captured her look. She does unfortunately end up looking a bit orcish in that image, I always saw her with a slimmer, not so round face (I'll say my bad for not describing her face too much, if at all) :) Not that I'm asking for it to be touched up or anything.
I really appreciate the time you've put into this, thank you.
This is the same request I made in the previous thread but it never got fulfilled... as it's been a good 10 months, I don't feel too bad requesting again...
Anywho, my request is for my Summoner in a Council of Thieves campaign.
An attractive female in her early to mid twenties. Light reddish brown skin, amethyst eyes. Two slim horns protrude from her forehead tapering to dull points as they follow the curve of her head back. Blueish black hair, tied back in a pony tail, reaching to her shoulder blades with azure streaks running back from her horns. She has a slim but curvaceous figure. A slender tail reaches down to about mid calf.
Her attire is well made and sturdy, more practical than fashionable, but still a touch stylish. Leather boots come most of the way up her calves the tops turned down forming a cuff. Close fitting trousers, possibly a softer more supple leather. On her top half she wears a tunic secured at the waist by a sash, the front and back of the tunic hang to about knee height, where as the sides only come down to the hips.
Possibly wearing a bodice over that, and either a short sleeved bolero or zouve jacket rounding it off. A satchel hangs at one hip the strap running from the opposite shoulder, and a small pouch rests at her other hip secured to the sash.
And of course her Eidolon
A couple of inches taller than Talia, and a bit more muscular, but overall the same proportions. Her horns are thicker at the base, and taper to points, they are also more prominent, not following the curve of her head as closely. Her skin has the likeness of red marble, a featureless white marble mask covers her face. A pair of black feathered wings adorn her back, the feathers edged with a golden hue, they do not look big enough to allow for flight.
Wears either a bustier or halter top, with bare midriff, trousers and boots, all in black and red leather. (somewhat akin to Rayne in BloodRayne)
Hmm, not quite on topic, but definitely relating to character death.
We where playing through Rise of the Runelords and my character had the worst time of it.
In the assault on Thistletop
During a nasty fight against the goblins, the party lead called for a retreat. Being the swashbuckler he attempted to tumble past a pair of goblins at the rear to set up flanking and clear the way. Failing the roll by one or two he provoked, and wore a couple of attacks from them and was dropped to negatives. Unfortunately the party didn't think to have anyone move to cover their downed companion so the next turn saw a coup de grace.
His corpse was recovered and taken to some druids in the area, and he was reincarnated as an Elf.
Hook Mountain Massacre
We'd just dealt with a pack of (what we assumed where) wild dogs, when an ogre...
...stepped out of the foliage and cleft him in twain, with a crit. from a large great-axe.
Yet more Druids! And he now finds himself back as human, kind of, but female! We found out later she was actually a fetchling, but it was before there was anything more than juts a one or two line description of that race, so mostly human, with lowlight, and cold resistance IIRC.
Now going by the name Lynn we continue the adventures...
Fortress of the Stone Giants
Spoiler:but by this point the cleric had Breath of Life so was back on her feat quite quickly.
Sins of the Saviors
Spires of Xin-Shalast
From what I recall there where only a couple of other deaths in the campaign (other than the TPK which I might regale you of later), one player lost a character or two in ways we couldn't retrieve the body, and once we had it Breath of Life came in handy in the latter half of the campaign.
Sacred Bond perhaps?
It's my understanding that the feat Augment Summoning won't work with the class ability to summon an Eidolon, it's not a spell; but if you use the spell Summon Eidolon to bring it into existence it will get the boosted stats from the feat.
You know I doubt it will but it would be neat if the crown of the world map matched up with the top of the Inner Sea Map, which in turn matched up with the Dragon Empire map to more or less make one big map. Just saying.
That would certainly be nifty.I'm guessing (tho hoping I'm wrong!) it will be a nice large copy of the Crown of the World map from the AP, and a nice large copy of the map presented in the Dragon Empire Gazetteer. If that's the case, they're slightly different styles from each other, but I'm reasonably sure the northern extent of the Wall of Heaven is shown on the Crown map, linking those two together.
Now if only I knew enough to try mapping those three maps to a globe :)

What about new animal companions?
There's 16 in all, the list includes a number of dinos & animals from the book, and the two marsupials, Thylacine (previously in a Kingmaker book,) and Kangaroo
Anything you find very interesting?
The Wayangs are a small race with no penalty to Strength. I don't know about anyone else, but I found that interesting.
Also, the Taldan colony of Amanandar is right in the middle of Tian, they even had to go halfway around the continent to get there!

You can gain Extra Evolution multiple times, but only once for every five summoner levels you possess.
The wording is a bit ambiguous, at what levels can it be taken?
Given it has the same text as the Improved Natural Armour evolution in the APG, should this FAQ entry also cover this feat?
Thanks for checking.
Now that you mention the time, I do recall checking on the site over the weekend and noticing the order pending, but definitely no email arrived about it till the shipping notice. As I wasn't intending to cancel any part of the order it's all good, just though it was worth noting in case there was some problem at you end.
So I'll put it down to the 'internets ate my email', and leave it at that.
Good to see the Beginner Box shipping to me, but I'm a bit concerned that I never got a "Hi we'll be shipping this to you in the next few weeks." email.
I've double checked my ISP's and email client's spam traps but no impending order email to be seen.
Just wondering is this a special case due to the Beginner Box? Did the internets eat my email? or perhaps a glitch at your end (in which case you might want to look into it)
As I'm here is there any ETA on the other two products in the order?

Well, looks like I shot myself in the foot on this order then. :)Next year I'll have to try and remember to not add to the August order, I think most other shipment I wouldn't care how soon or late they ship, but the the August bundle is like Christmas, but 5 months early. :)
Thank you both, it looks like I'll be ordering 13 to push the order up over 100 then :)
I was a bit surprised to see how the order got split up, but I'm guessing the system knows best.
I had assumed that Ultimate Combat would get it's own box, and the other Player Companion and Campaign Setting books would get a second one.
Currently I've got 10 packs of card sleeves in my shopping cart, I am considering getting them added to my next subscription shipment (the late July shipment.)
Is it possible to get an estimation (or exact value) of how much that would cost?
Would there be a significant change if I dropped that to 6 packs?
Or will I need to ask in a couple of weeks once the late July subscription order has been 'placed'?
Now, can a Beast Master Ranger take this multiple times (once for each Companion)?

Each time you take the feat, it applies to a different animal companion or familiar.
Indeed, many thanks.

Just like to point out they don't have to be an even split... However it would probably be inadvisable to still have one at 1st when your 20th.
In the Kingmaker game I'm in I've gone with the Beast Master Ranger, the GM has allowed me to take Boon Companion twice, feat could be read a couple of ways regards Beast Master, or Pack Lord, but then it was written well before UM, or the APG so didn't take them into account.
I've got a Wolf I'm using as the primary AC, levelling it up more often than not, and an Eagle I'll probably be leaving at 5th (1 actual level, +4 from Boon) for scouting.
This works well with Improved Empathic Link letting me see through the eagles eyes when I send it off.
For reference, Boon Companion is from Seekers of Secrets, page 16
I can't double check at the moment due to being at work, but I did get some results using TinEye reverse image search.
A couple of things to note there, the previous one was ~40km away, and 11km deep, this one was only 10km, and 6km deep.
It's also been reported that the ground acceleration in the September quake was .8G, where as the latest one was 1G. Not being a geologist/geophysicist I don't know why there'd be a difference in the acceleration.
My personal suspicion is those two facts (closer, and faster acceleration) coupled with instability caused by Septembers 'quake (both buildings and ground) set the city up for more damage this time round (again, not my field of expertise so I could be way off there.)
And of course here I am, in Wellington, sitting pretty much right on top of a fault that is due to go sometime in the next 50-100 years IIRC.
Ohhhh, nice new map :) I've always been a fan of cartography.
I do recall there was a thread a little while back where some ingenious people overlaid the Inner Sea map on a globe of the earth based off a couple of clues from James Jacobs(IIRC) i.e. Magnimar was supposed to be around the same latitude as Seattle and Northern Garund should be around about the tropics.
Anybody have the time (and inclination) to try putting this map on a globe? Perhaps with the Inner Sea map overlaid as well?
That is if Paizo doesn't mind...

If you take boon companion twice, you could end up at 12th level with a 12th level companion and an 8th level companion with the beastmaster ranger.
Or two 10ths, which is the plan I have for my ranger, his hunting dog, and eagle. My hope is the Eagle will be quite useful in another level when I pick up Improved Empathic Link.
As a note, while you don't get the Animal Companion till 4th level, there's nothing stopping you forking out some of your starting cash and buying an animal. You just need to figure out how to keep it alive till 4th level :)
I'd appreciate the option to group by product family, i.e. Pathfinder RPG, Player Companion, Chronicles. Possibly with a way to collapse the categories. One exception would be playtest documents that should have their own section regardless of what actual product family they belong to.
Also, either hiding, or having the one file per chapter download on the same line I think I have about 86 files in my list and 27 of those are double ups.
If the Eidolon was there due to the class feature... I'd probably have to side with the majority, and say it is off limits.
If however the Summoner has brought it in via the 2nd level Summon Eidolon spell, that might well be a different matter.
