I recognize the Robot from Somewhere, but where's The Floating Island pic from?

Her armor's clearly meant to protect her Impact surfaces. Shins and shoulders, knuckles and arms, elbows and headbutting bits. Her belly is unarmored because she does not punch with her belly. same with her inner thighs.

Also, looking at her art, it looks like she's right handed and favors a Philly shell defensive stance.

That artwork... That horn is clearly not issuing music. that's smoke. Mystical blue Smoke.

I loved Artifacts and Legends. Can we get a hint of something that might be in here?

So is this like Book of Nine Swords was for 3.5? A preview into the Next edition of PF?

Because "Alternative Action Economy" hints at that for me.

I will say that I'm very interested in this "Magic item generator" system.

That cover is Beautiful.

Hmmm... More Goblin Archetypes? Didn't the Race Guide already do that?

Are these new Archetypes balanced for Player use as well? or just for GM use?

Did Areelu kill Seoni and steal her dress? Cause if not, It's really evil to show up to a party (even a party of PCs) in the same dress as someone else in the party. Especially since Seoni's one of the Iconics for this AP.

So a couple issues.

1. That last paragraph, what?
2. What cost is it? as long as you have 1 panache point it's constantly on? or do you need to spend a point of panache?
3. On multiple attacks per turn, what attacks does this effect?
4. What action does this take?
5. What duration is this?
6. Seriously, that last paragraph? what?

See the first post.

Thanks. that still doesn't explain whether the normal precise strike is always on or takes an action to activate though.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

okay, precise strike issue.

Quote:

Precise Strike (Ex): At 3rd level, as long as she has at least

1 panache point, a swashbuckler gains the ability to strike
precisely with a light or one-handed piercing melee
weapon (though not natural weapon attacks), adding her
swashbuckler level to her damage roll. To use this deed,
a swashbuckler cannot attack with a weapon in her other
hand or use a shield. A precise strike only works against
living creatures with discernible anatomies. Any creature
that is immune to critical hits is also immune to a precise
strike, and any item or ability that protects a creature
from critical hits also protects a creature from a precise
strike. The extra damage of precise strike is precision
damage, and isn’t multiplied with a critical hit.
As a swift action, a swashbuckler can spend 1 panache
point to her precise strike’s damage bonus on the next
attack.
This must be used before the end of her turn, or
it is lost.

So a couple issues.

Quick question, with Iron Gods (presumably) running around, will this path be mythic?

So, this artifact can raise the dead right? Why is this special? So can an animate dead spell.

Does anyone have a Mythic Graveknight template prepared? I want to use the instructions for that one recurring villain. But I don't want to just drop the regular graveknight template on a mythic character, I'd rather do something more along the lines of the Mythic Lich.

What other common half races?

I ordered this figure with the comic and the konkrud figure, everything looked fine in my cart, but now the price showing up in my sidecart isn't The price (and the price in my receipt) isn't corresponding to the price listed here. It's still the $5.00 (with 15% off from my pathfinder advantage).

Osirion

I seriously Hope Evil makes you super powered. Because I know of at least one encounter where the original non evil entity was CR15. That ain't gonna be enough to even delay the players I GM for at level 15. much less at levels 16 or 17.

Osirion

I'm not sure of the Linguistic accuracy of the term. Wouldn't that imply that all bi-racial (in this case race taking the Pathfinder connotations) were unmarried and so the children illegitimate?

And so as to derail the topic of conversation back onto the book itself, I wonder if there will be any other half races that aren't half-fiends or half-celestials (both of which are covered to some extent in the revisited line and the appropriate "Blood of" books).

It seems highly unlikely to me that Paizo will start introducing half-dwarves. or Gnomelings.

I'm thinking of running this AP for 6 players as opposed to 4. Any recommendations for adjustment?

Adjust the encounters for the New Average Party Level (which I think is either +1 or +2, the calculations should be in the game Mastery Guide or the Core Rulebook). That generally means adding more monsters, like giving Single monsters some minions. It also helps keep EXP up.

Now, all said, that's the easy solution. The solution I prefer is that instead of relying on monster tactics entries Play each enemy encounter Intelligently, have Monsters Bull rush PCs off of buildings, have them retreat and grab help, have them set makeshift traps and alarms, have boss encounters react to commonly used player tactics due to actually spying on players. Adjust terrain and movement so that the enemy can gain an advantage over players. A flying monster may lair in a den where the floor is covered with the skeletal remains of previous victims (thus making it difficult terrain with the corresponding penalties for your PCs).

this approach adds realism, and makes Players kick up their own tactics and pay more attention to the terrain themselves. Which is better than the numerical arms race that simply adding more enemies and increasing their numerical stats causes between players and GMs.

I don't see any monk hybrids. I'm wondering if there's a Monk Cleric mix. An Aesthetic, maybe.

So I made up a quick 5th scale for anyone with 5 players. I tried to fit it with the other scales, 2nd level spell, usable 3/day and thematic with a silver dragon.

The 5th Scale:
Ice Breath: Three times per day as a standard action, this scale can be used to cast Fire Breath, but instead of fire, this ability only does Cold Damage.

Osirion

not up yet. Parts are put up as their shipping date nears, generally 4 or so months away.

I dunno. the Mythic Minotaur is pretty amazing. if I can take variant monsters in a normal bestiary (like winter wolves) I can take a few Incredibly awesome Mythic Monsters.

That said, i wouldn't want to see them even reach a third of the bestiary
maybe around 1/10th of the book would be fine, maybe less. And they'd have to be super awesome. Like the Mythic Dragons. I want rules to Build my own Mythic Dragons.

Good question. I know it's in the book.

It'll probably see release when Mythic hits the PRD.

I'm hoping for an alchemist style sort of "non caster" tinkerer or engineer class. we've gotten sort of close with gunsmith and alchemist, but there's no real class that makes clockwork inventions, minions and or traps doable.

We're finally actually getting Kaijuu! YES. and I assume they are Mythic? Cause Double yes!

New familiars.... I wonder if the Playtpus from Animal Archive is being included? If not I really wanna see a red panda familiar. They're the cutest animals ever.

Brimoraks. :)

Explains the odd height differential. I Guess that makes more sense than Mythic Minotaur Hordes with Equal parts Flaming Swords and Dwarfism.

Makes a less awesome post-crusade tavern story though. "There I was! Hip deep in mini-minotaurs! All of them wielding flaming swords! When Suddenly I succeeded on my Knowledge: Planes Check and realized they were actually Brimoraks!"

Baphomet? I think the fifth AP episode will be taking the heroes to his labyrinth.

It looks to me like This is the lineup:

Module 1: Xoveron
Module 2: ???
Module 3: ???
Module 4: Noticula
Module 5: Baphomet
Module 6: Deskari

I'm hoping 2 and 3 are Shax and either Cyth-V'sug or Pazuzu. Though, It might be Kostchtchie or Angazhan, given Paizo's predilection for developing their IP rather than Open Source stuff.

But not for me. Grrrr.

I received the "we will be shipping soon" notice last week but it hasn't shipped yet.

Annoying that everyone who didn't preorder can just come get the book right now and I'm stuck waiting for the warehouse staff to come back from GenCon.

It's super annoying because it's also cutting into my budgeting for the month. I'm not being billed until it actmually ships, so I need to maintain a much higher minimum balance in my account than normal for this time of month.

This is super aggravating. I had planned on starting my new wrath of the righteous campaign today, now I have to call off my group's session this week as well.
