I wish there was a feat for monks to use their deity's favored weapon.

Based on their previous schedule, I'm guessing that won't be the case. We have 7 mondays left, and 5 classes they haven't done posts on (though druid might not merit one, having been previewed at PaizoCon).
A lot of stuff can come in as Friday blogs. Classes will be Monday, sure, but we've had ancestry blogs on Fridays.
I took the post to imply that we might be getting general feats today. I certainly think that general feats will get a Friday slot, but Paizo seems to be erring on putting potentially controversial previews on mondays, and that means to me that the rest of the classes and the human ancestries are my guess for the rest of the Mondays, and I figure that the 7/30 blog post will be something special.

Yeah I should have been clearer. I mean if we'll get it at all, not today.

I think today's blog will be monk, but I wish it was sorcerer so we can see which spell list it will use and how spontaneous casting works...

Oh, the Cleric and Swashbuckler archetypes look nice. Care do give us some details?

Liberty's Edge

Is the Edict Dragon's art from the same artist that did the other Planar Dragons?

Liberty's Edge

Could you give us some info in the Duskwalkers and Anphorites?

James,

Please pardon if this question has come up before...

Have there ever been deities on Golarion that were written with one alignment and then after a while the deity in question just didn't seem to 'fit' the alignment they were given?

Not really. There have been cases where an author or developer has misunderstood the deity and wrote/developed it in a way that wasn't the intent, though (either through misunderstanding or subordination or whatever). Which is different than us creating a deity and then later realizing, "Oh hey, what we created should have been for a different alignment."

IS there any deities you want to retcon in the new edition?

How much of a direct impact will Return of the Runelords will have on Sandpoint? Will this be reflected in the new Sandpoint book?

Unlikely. There's not nearly as much support for it and there are no other Cha penalty Ancestries making it feel like we're overloaded on them (as there were with Halflings being a Cha bonus Ancestry).

I'm not even sure it's a good idea, as it would make them worse at some Classes they should traditionally be good at (Fighter, most notably).

But it hurts them as Clerics and Paladins, their other two "classic" classes.

I'm curious about the bard because I wanna know what happened to 2/3 casting, as the Alchemist completely scrapped it.

Do Dhampirs always have a vampire father or can they also have a vampire mother?
They can have a vampire mother, absolutely. They could also have had a vampire as a grandparent or great grandparent or all the way back. They can also have normal human parents but have been exposed to other necormantic influences before birth that could have transformed them. Or they could have had dhamphir parents, assuming we haven't said in print somewhere that dhamphirs can't have kids, but event then, magic lets exceptions happen.

But how would a vampire mom work? Blade Style? Or can a vampire somwehow get pregnant?

3 Runelords down, 4 to go. I was hoping the BBEG would be Sorshen or Xanderghul, but I have a feeling they're both too powerful for a non-mythic party to take done. Ah well.

3??? Are you counting Alaznist as the 3rd?

"Many magic items have special crafting requirements, such as access to certain spells, as listed in the item entry in Chapter 11." So... you can't actually be an item crafter unless you're a spellcaster. :/

There might be a feat that let's you overcome that.

GRIM REAPER - Creature 21

Did anyone try to pick apart the stat block yet?

I wonder how the keen property works with the new crit system.

I'm not sure how I feel about all of its saves being so close to each other. Is it an exceptional monster specifically designed to have no weaknesses or will all monsters be like that?

It's also interesting that its HP is actually lower than the old version - I thought HP were supposed to be inflated across the board.

I do like the new stat block format which feels much more laconic and readable than the old one.

I think it is related to the deadly trait.

Only Wrath of the Righteous and Return of the Runelords have officially gone to 20. Neither of the hardcovers have.

But wasn't it mentioned somewhere that the goal is that all the 2E APs go to 20?

Liberty's Edge

I think that now Paizo know us better, and knows the stuff we bought and asked for the most in the past decade. So I expect all the favorites that couldn't fit in the core to show up in a way or another in the first few years.

Wait, there is both a Thunder Duke and Duke of Thunder?

Liberty's Edge

James, the first adventure of a new edition is difficult to do, since usually it must be written before the rules themselves are finished, right? So, how does Paizo plan to handle the first AP of the new edition? Did Council of Thieves provide many lessons on how to do it? I guess I'm just curious about the logistics involved.

Liberty's Edge

2 people marked this as a favorite.

I think there are a few naming mistakes in this one. Stavian III is called Stavian II a few times, and the Vault and Chain Templars are sometimes called Golden Templars. In the adventure, Iovinus title is "Enumerator", but in the backmatter he is Archbanker.

Liberty's Edge

Isn't the extra die of the Redcap because its scythe is expert quality?

Liberty's Edge

James,
Now that the last 1e AP is revealed, can you tell us if it is also going all the way to 20th lvl?

Liberty's Edge

Is this one also going to lvl20?

Liberty's Edge

The thing is, the alchemist was a half caster and now doesn't cast at all. (Yeah, not exactly a caster, but still.)
And if the class with the Occult list is not a full caster, they'd probably still have to future-proff the list with 7-9 spells, which would be akward.

Liberty's Edge

So is Tar-Baphon getting free? As the new world-ending threat?

I've been following this thread but staying out as I don't really have a dog in this fight. However, I do have two (well, maybe three) comments.

First: Cap is a Paladin, he's following the PF2 code and has/will violate the 4th tenet to keep the other three. Thanos is not, he's a Zealot (my term for the non-paladin sacred warriors)

Second: A question for those of you wanting multiple alignment 'paladins'.

Do you actually want the full package? Do you want to find your character tied to tenets so important that you can lose everything by violating them? Because, to me, that potential sacrifice is part and parcel of a Paladin.

Also (and slightly tongue in cheek) do you really want to be responsible for multiplying the should my Paladin have fallen threads by 9?

Ha,

9x∞=∞ , so no change in that ;)

So I think the approach chosen by Jason is reasonable: Build the best LG version possible, then build each class or sub-class for different alignements at a later point, maybe in time for the Core book, otherwise in a quick follow-up (there would be demand for it, obviously, so I don't think it would linger for years). Some posters seems to think the follow-up version will necessarily be bad, but that mistrust of Paizo's dev team is unwarranted, in my opinion.

Paizo has done some amazing stuff over the years out of Core.

Paladin variants are not one of them.

Pretty much everything they have ever done with respect to variant or loosened paladins has been completely awful trash. That's why people are so worried and skeptical. If Paladin and alternatives are not done right out the gate, and we don't get to playtest them properly, there is very little faith that they won't end up as watered down, underpowered, flavor-crippled garbage.

This is why I believe these concepts should be full classes: There's a lot more freedom in design if you're not bound to the class chassis.

While I like 5e's and Pillars of Eternity take on paladins as warriors drawing power from an specific oath (Bleak Walkers are awesome!), I'm with Jason in this one: I prefer the Paladin to be a specific kind of Holy Champion, the LG one, and have other classes fill the others. This way, a Paladin, a LN Justiciar, an Antipaladin and a Shifter would all be very different.

Liberty's Edge

I gotta say, I'm disappointed with this one.
Paladin is my favorite class and this preview was the one I was expecting the most, but it is just too vague.
Only a quick mention to Smite, nothing about spellcasting. I'd really like more mechanical details about the class.
But then again, it's my favorite class. Perhaps nothing short of the full class write up would satisfy me.

Pretty sure he eats the fathers face although that may have been toned down for the aniversary edition.

Nope, edited my post to include that. It is still in the Anniversary Edition.
