I can see combining that one with ravenous to make a low-level windigo. So many possibilities.

The Secrets of Tactical Archetypes II coming Sunday!

Cybernetics Doctor (Machinesmith/Fleshwraith) Illustration by Felipe Pesantez

“Do not be afraid, little one, I spent more years reading books and practicing my magic than you have been breathing. It won’t grow back by itself. But I can assure you that when you wake up and see your awesome new arm, you’ll wish you could get the other one the same ! … If that happens, just come back to me.”

- Dr. Ambrosen, pragmatic special care volunteer for war victims

Some engineers walk at the crossroads between biology and mechanics, seeing in the union of both worlds a reliable opportunity to walk toward intelligent evolution. As their field of expertise requires them to learn and apply a tremendous amount of information, most cybernetics doctors are mad polymaths and geniuses of various fields, who are as likely to perform groundbreaking discoveries as they are to suffer from a crippling lack of common sense, empathy and morality. But such a state of mind is also what allows them to experiment on their own bodies if needs be without fearing the potential damage, instead welcoming the results as proofs of their incredible theories.

Nope, an error on my part it should have been a longer duration.

Coming This Week

Cover Image Preview

The Secrets of Renegade Archetypes II: Bringing you more love for your favorite third party publisher Pathfinder Classes.

Death Knight (Rogue Genius Games): Death Paramours use their bond with the Low Road to steal the souls of their departing victims before they have a chance to face final judgment, and raise their undead bodies as servants and temporary vessels for their own soul.

Elven Archer (Kobold Press): Elven Exemplars blend natural and arcane magic with master archery, representing the apex of elven civilization's finest aspects. Their arrows of pure energy, scroll arrows, ranged spellstrikes and versatile spell list makes them deadly opponents and allies.

Machinesmith (Louis Porter Jr. Design): Cybernetics Doctors are scientists bordering the edge of sanity, experimenting with invasive grafts and devices like brains in jars and other improvements intended to reinforce one's physical capabilities, whether with glass and metal or flesh and bone.

Pact Magic Binder (Radiant House): The Artisan and Lover are two new constellations that all binders can attempt to tap upon in order to create incredible pieces of craftsmanship, or promote peace, affection and understanding. Each comes with a new spirit to bind.

Shadow Assassin (Rogue Genius Games): Mage Slayers forsake their deadly strikes in order to resist spells, hit through magic protections, and break the concentration of spellcasters. They may track their victims over long distances, proving immunity to fear is always a handy gift.

Swordmaster (Dread Fox Games): Braggarts have a great natural skill with both their chosen weapon and their tongue. Passionate about their personal quest, they act recklessly in combat with unique maneuvers in order to provoke and punish their foes, swashbuckling their way to success.

Witch Hunter (Super Genius Games): Witch Eaters have a taste for magic, especially the living kind. Their ability to leech spells and consume body parts of their fallen victims in order to receive their courage, insight or strength make them as feared as could be a werewolf in some communities.

Wolf Shifter (Paizo Fans United):The Werebeast includes 13 animal variants to the wolf for all those who wish to play a serpentine, mastodon, tiger... or yes, a tyrannosaur-themed lycanthrope/barbarian.

Just a by the way I dedicated this to Joshua "KtFish7" Guillion because this is the last product we talked about before his death this week.

Just a note that Joshua "KtFish7" Guillion who we interviewed in this issue died this week.

Joshua Guillion has died. He was a talented layout artist (Rise of the Drow, and many other AdventureAWeek products), a gifted reviewer, and a good friend.

I don't think many of my books would be as popular without his reviews and I was happy to get to interview him in Pathways #37 (which is free and you should go read.)

I also want to express my condolences to all his friends and family especially to the folks at AdventureAWeek.

The Secrets of the Bravo!

Coming Next Week. A new base class for those who want to play a swashbuckler, a bravosi water dancer, or a wuxia swordsman/swordswoman.

Cover Illustration by Juan Diego Dianderas.

Dear Qwilion,

Listen closely my friend, and hear of one for whom danger, reward, and adventure are the only motivations needed, for these are achieved easily enough by one with sufficient daring and wit. I am a bravo: a decisive warrior testing myself through adversity, seeking my fortune in the world through savvy and bold deeds. Still, a bit of trickery, some luck, and a sharp blade never hurt. We come from many different walks of life, for the poor peasant who picks up a sword has no less to prove than a young noble - and certainly no less to lose . We train relentlessly, seeking to learn the ins and outs of any dueling style a swordmaster is willing to teach. Some of us take our accomplishments with great grace and quiet appreciation for the intrinsic rewards, while those up to the challenge are more than happy to reap the benefits of wealth, fine food, excellent drink, good company, comfort, and the admiration of a paramour. Regardless of an individual bravo's magnitude of bravado or hubris, we all exhibit some measure of eccentricity or arrogance. And for good reason!

Vourmed "Cutting Cloud"

I am interested in seeing how this compares to Wendall's work.

No linnorms. I'm working on some linnorm-centric material that will be a part of a forthcoming sourcebook for the Lost Isles. (At least that's the current plan, it's early in design and doesn't yet have a scheduled release date.)

We don't talk about release dates until the manuscript is done :0

Well our intern became a paid employeed, We finished and released The secrets of advneturing right now he is working on all our monster books (templates, feats, and variants), and at the same time he is working on In the Company of Monsters (which includes minotaurs).

We are also looking at hiring a second coder or another intern.

dang, and just last week someone was trying to get advice on how to let a player play a dragon.

Well the playtest has been out for 6 months now, and that someone will have a whole mess of advice :)

1 person marked this as a favorite.

They are rather hard to make since they don't follow any of the standard rules for the races. But our Coder is working on In The Company of Monsters (which compiles this an 5 other races) as well as a Complilation of our Variant Monsters, Monster Feats, and monster template books.

as per the pathfinder rules you are always your own ally so anything that says allies always affects you as well.

I will talk to will about other clarifications.

I liked the playtest so I'm definitely getting this.

I am very glad you did.

This sounds like a really good one. Even better if it has a Hero Lab file. :)

Hero Lab files are usually pretty easy to make. However they take time. Which is why they are worth buying when available. Maybe after I graduate I can start making some as a freelancer.

I would love to see our Hero Lab coder respond to this. Because we do crazy things like Racial Pargaon classes, and a archetype which works with nearly ever paizo class (and a few of our own). What we do is rarely if ever simple.

We have however done Hero Lab files for 1001 Spells, Heroes of the Jade Oath, and The Secrets of Adventuring.

We are working on Ultimate Monsters, (for all our Monster books) To be followed by In the Company of Monsters. We also have the forthcoming Treasury of Magic Items (think 1001 Spells but for magic items), and then there is Faces of the Tarnished Souk.

I would love to find another coder that could do what remians of the In The Company of Series, but until I do, this will just be on our to do list.

Come and find out if those who meddle in your affairs are crunchy and good with ketchup.
Do you read the Laundry Files books by Charlie Stross? That's like his favorite description of elder gods.

This actually much older than that, and comes from a Dragon Magazine article, and a t-shirt you used to see at GenCon all the time about dragons.

its also a bit of a meme

You know you want to play a Dragon!

Not a half-dragon, not a reptilian humanoid, but a DRAGON!

Come and find out if those who meddle in your affairs are crunchy and good with ketchup. Level up as a dragon and grow to the size of a house, breath fire, (or other energy types), struggle for territory, win prestige amongst dragons, slay giants, rule the sky, and embrace you true draconic essence right alongside all the other player characters.

Create the dragon you want to play in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. This product includes the new dragon race the Taninin, racial traits, alternate racial traits, the core class archetype (which works with 21 different classes), the paragon racial class, and draconic feats, all so you can play dragons alongside any other player character in any high fantasy campaign setting.

Unlike the playtest version this also includes flavor text dealing with Physical Descriptions, Society, Relations, Alignment, Religion, Adventurers, and Names as well as mechanics such as alternate favored class options, and three racial archetypes for Fighter, Oracle, and Sorcerer, plus even more feats.

I keep wondering with all these Rite Publishing products, why is the a '#' sign in front of the number? Does that make sense?

It was a marketing gimick Zaister.

# came up first on the alpha bit on drivethru to display products. Then Owen came alogn and did #1 with a bullet point....

I have no problem with that with the mysterious stranger archtype causing all that to change to Cha.

We are extremely pleased to make this possible!

Is this the correct place for errata questions?

The valiant resolve spell is described in the spells lists as providing DR 10/lethal, but the long description says that it gives DR 10/nonlethal (making it much stronger). I'm guessing that the former is correct and that the latter is an error. Am I right?

That is correct the damage reduction is overcome by lethal damage.

The point of the impersonate ability is that it adds an additional untyped bonus to disguise checks. It also can be used with mundane disguises rather than being limited to magical disguises which true seeing would see right through.

You already get a +10 circumstance bonus for using alter self.

Curious for those of you in the know:

do End's reviews seem to have a significant effect on sales?
Yes and no. I think if you have a fan base already built you have people who are going to purchase and support you no matter what. BUT if you are a new and just starting 3PP, those reviews can make OR break you. I have tried out several new 3PP just because thet recieved a good review by End. The reviews can definitely get those who might be on the fence about buying to actually choose to pick it up or not.

What Louis said is correct but I will point out that End has his own fans, and when he puts his seal of approval on things people will buy them, because they are his fans.

This is in my top 10 of class designs besides my own, I really love what Owen did with the idea of a front line tank style character, the 3/4 base attack bonus really sold it for me. You can also see the beginnings of talented classes here.

Kudos to Owen.


I will look a this later.

But I see the Artisan class from Faces of the Tarnished Souk is missing

Ironborn and Lurker did not have a racial paragon classes (I am fixing that).

Did you get Divine Channeler, Luckbringer, Enlightened Scholar, and Kusa?

You got all the Kaidan stuff.

Third party producers; I have a few questions.

1) Which of you products seem to sell more than others?

2) Which of your products failed to sell as well as you hoped?

3) Which of your products, for better or worse, defied your expectations?

And for each of those questions how did that product come about and why do you think it did well or poorly?

1. 1001 Spells. I was doing 6 spells a day for 10 months, then we did a compilations, it was something I always wanted a big balanced spellbook that gave something to every class at every level. People love new spells.

2. In The Company of Lurkers: Its a very niche product of half-gnomes and half cloakers for our races line, and people think of mating rather than a magically created race. It also lacked the paragon class which was my mistake. If I had to do it over again I would do it as In the Company of Cloakers and focus more on that with the Lurkers being a off-shoot option.

3. In the Company of Fey: This was Wendall Roy's baby after I pitched a couple ideas at him, he picked this one, we talked about it for a long time and I felt really great about the development process. I think the attraction of playing fey creatures, Roy's talented design, and some very high quality art made this a very exciting product.

Thanks for getting it up Liz.

So anyway, I'm asking partly because when it comes to OGC I have a strong preference not to re-invent the wheel. I think it's valuable when stuff used by one publisher succeeds in becoming a standard. I guess I should add, in addition to my other questions, "How much Open Game Content is in the product, and what does the Section 15 look like?"

For the Ironborn, "All Logos, Book Titles, Introduction text Proper names (excluding class, feat, and special ability names) and Images are product identity all other content is open gaming content."

Leave the setting alone, leave the company logo, the name of the book, and the images alone. That's all we ask.
