None of the Occult Iconics are a Sylph. The sylph that's going to be in Mummy's Mask is NOT one of the traditional Paizo iconics (this was confirmed at PaizoCon). They're trying to open up a bit more design space by using some non-iconics in future sets.

The confusion probably stems from the fact that I already edited the page yesterday or the day before to move that sentence from the italicized portion to the main text (because in my opinion, it belongs there). So Cuuniyevo, can you look at the page again now and see if it makes more sense to you now?

While you are at it. :)

The Traits > Religeous notes that they require worship of specific dieties (not listed there) but on the pages for the traits themselves there is no note of that requirement. Might be a good idea to add that.

Unfortunately this is one of the things that cant' really be done, as the specific deities' names can't be listed there since those names are not covered as part of the Compatibility License. For religion traits, I would absolutely suggest checking Archives of Nethys for deity requirements before you take one of them.

The biggest thing I have noticed with d20pfsrd is with certain campaign specific / Golarion attributes. In particular with traits and feats that require a certain god, or various other "named" pieces. Such as Blade of Mercy for Saerenrae or Defensive Strategist for Torag. Similiarly, The 'Aldori' Dueling Sword is just called Dueling Sword, and the 'Aldori' Swordlord prestigue class is called just Swordlord. Wayang Spellhunter trait is instead called 'Metamagic Master'.

To be honest, I am not sure how AoN gets away with it while d20pfsrd doesn't.

I've never seen an actual rules piece be wrong, unless it was something new that recently changed. Those that have changed I have seen get changed farirly quickly.

It's because d20pfsrd started running itself as a business and selling merchandise. When they did so Paizo requested, or rather asserted, that they could no longer use their copyrighted material. This basically amounts to all the proper nouns of gods, locations, cities, etc. Up until d20pfsrd decided to start selling things they in fact had all the copy written material on the website.

The reason the Archives of Nethys is allowed to operate is that it is a fan made, non-profit website.

Just to give a LITTLE bit more clarity here:

Archives of Nethys operates under the Pathfinder Community Use Policy, which d20PFSRD.com used to as well. When the proprietor of d20PFSRD decided to start selling and publishing books using the site, Paizo sent him a (very nice but stern) email saying that he would now have to conform to the Paizo Compatibility License, which allows one to use all the RULES content of Pathfinder but none of the setting-specific material. So, rather than revert back to how things were before, John decided to run with it, and we edited out all the Golarion-specific content.

I then created pathfindercommunity.net as a community use supplement to the d20PFSRD, where I could put the golarion-specific stuff and link out to the main site. However, I got very little traffic (the only things on that site that really get traffic are my guides) so that site fell by the wayside and hasn't been updated in quite a while.

So, for Golarion-specific stuff like the Aldori Dueling Sword, Archives of Nethys is still the place to go, and probably always will be.

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

But see I think that this issue is with the way it's written in the book, not with the way it's been translated over to d20PFSRD.com. I would argue that a kitsune monk CAN take one of these in place of a monk bonus feat, because the line in the book says "any time she would gain a feat." A monk bonus feat is a feat you're gaining. There's no indication in the book that that line is NOT rules text.

So I guess I don't understand why the site is being blamed for the ambiguity of text found in the book.

But alright, let's say that we've screwed up this time and that sentence is NOT rules text at all. Fair. We can change that (though I personally don't believe we should) or make a FAQ box on the side that talks about the controversy. And that's the beauty, I think, of the site... you can see when there's a controversy and both sides of the argument are generally shown there.

Anyway, I am not in any way trying to suggest that the d20PFSRD is the end-all be-all for Paizo rules, but I do take offense when someone badmouths the site, because I know there are many people who spend a lot of their free time to get all that info up on that site and make it freely available (and I used to be one of them, though I unfortunately haven't had time to devote to the site in a while).

They way it is portrayed looks like a rules line from the feat, and the book makes it clear that line isn't a rules line as that is the only line in a sidebar box. If they just dumped the feats on you without any header it would look odd. The ONLY header they give you is "A kitsune may select this feat any time she would gain a feat." which is basically "here are some more feats you can pick".

There is no indication in the book these feats can be chosen when given a list, but there is a never ending supply of threads where people use the PFSRD's improperly modified wording to suggest as much.

When a resource causes arguments over rules, that resource is a problem.

I personally don't understand how it could be misinterpreted to mean anything other than "a kitsune can take this feat", which is what it's supposed to mean. And if the text instead said "Here is a feat that a kitsune can pick" would you like that better? And who's to say that it's not a rules line? It's a line in the book that tells you that the feats are meant for kitsune... that seems like a rule to me.

Good job of pissing on one of the more notable VOLOUNTEER pieces of work from the community. PFSRD is a commercial entreprise, in case you haven't noticed.

This post really bugs me... most of the people who work on the site ARE volunteers. I worked on the site for several years and never got paid for it. Just because d20PFSRD is now also a publishing company doesn't make it any less of a community effort. And the OP was not in any way "pissing" on the Archives of Nethys. I freely admit that I often use the Archives of Nethys when I want to look up information on gods of Golarion or other Golarion-specific information that just can't be included on d20pfsrd.com.

Many times, one example is Fox Shape feat with it's editorial "Special:" line added by pfsrd. There are more examples.

Okay so, looking at this example, the ONLY thing that was done differently here than what was in the actual book is the placement of a single line from the book:

D20PFSRD text wrote:


You can change into a fox in addition to your other forms.

Prerequisites: Cha 13, base attack bonus +3, kitsune.

Special: A kitsune may select this feat any time she would gain a feat.

Benefit: You can take the form of a fox whose appearance is static and cannot be changed each time you assume this form. Your bite attack’s damage is reduced to 1d3 points of damage on a hit, but you gain a +10 racial bonus on Disguise checks made to appear as a fox. Changing from kitsune to fox shape is a standard action. This ability otherwise functions as beast shape II, and your ability scores change accordingly.

Bonus Kitsune Feats
A kitsune may select from the following feats any time she would gain a feat.
Fox Shape
You can change into a fox in addition to your other forms. Prerequisites: Cha 13, base attack bonus +3, kitsune. Benefit: You can take the form of a fox (Pathfinder RPG
Bestiary 3 112) whose appearance is static and cannot be changed each time you assume this form. Your bite attack’s damage is reduced to 1d3 points of damage on a hit, but you gain a +10 racial bonus on Disguise checks made to appear as a fox. Changing from kitsune to fox shape is a standard action. This ability otherwise functions as beast shape II, and your ability scores change accordingly.

Swift Kitsune Shapechanger
You can change shape more quickly than most kitsune. Prerequisites: Dex 13, base attack bonus +6, kitsune. Benefit: You can assume human or kitsune form as
a swift action. If you have the Fox Shape feat, you can assume fox form as a swift action as well.
Normal: A kitsune’s change shape ability is a standard action.

Vulpine Pounce (Combat)
You can change shape mid-charge and pounce on an opponent in the same round.
Prerequisites: Swift Kitsune Shapechanger, base attack bonus +10, kitsune.
Benefit: When you change shape into your kitsune form and use the charge action in the same round, you can make a full attack against your opponent.

Now, the ONLY change that has been made was taking a line that applied to each of the three listed feats, and applying it to a single feat because of the format of the site. It does not in any way change the way the feat functions. In fact, I wouldn't call that "editorial" at all. It's a formatting issue only, and was probably the simplest way the person adding the feat to the database could think of to include that information. The alternative was to leave that line out, which would THEN have been "editorializing" in my opinion.

So, can you provide us with a few more examples of where the info that has been posted on d20pfsrd.com is added information that detracts from the clarity or understanding of the material for the user? Because I really don't think that example qualifies.

I am also very intrigued by this. I would be interested in playing in it if Korak is willing to run it, and if you'd be willing to have it be a party instead of just a single character. Either way, color me interested in reading the thread once you make it happen.

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

Has it been clarified that you can use all of your spells in the social persona? Cuz by a blind reading of the rules, you only get Arcane Training I when you're in the social persona, which means you can only use 1st and 0-level spells.

Nanite bloodline is up!

@UnArcaneElection: I would definitely like to do the bloodrager if I can find the time. It'll be a little while though.

@explodingtyphlosions: I would definitely go Stormborn over any of the standard elemental type bloodlines, and definitely consider the Arial version of Stormborn so that you can cast a storm-themed spell that causes precipitation and get a good deal more damage.

I agree totally with Theryon. Compare the availability of Paizo promos to, say, Steve Jackson Games' Munchkin promos. You've got a LOT more opportunities as a completionist here than you do there. It's time to end the complaints about promo availability. No one is forcing you to buy the promos.

I just didn't want to end up having us ALL be the same type. I think I'm going to go Warlock, as it's the one that caught my attention most right off the bat.

I would hope once there are at least 4 goblin characters out there that it would be considered. :-D

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

I think there are several ways to do this.

One would be, as SmiloDan says, give an added benefit to each level of training. This would be tough because the abilities that would be helpful to you would depend on what kind of caster you want to be. They could be based on wizard arcane schools or domains, but there's already a domain option for the Zealot.

Another option is to give these two specializations automatic progression of spellcasting, but have the talents increase their potency. So, for example, you could start them off with casting like a bloodrager/paladin (max 4th level spells, spellcasting starts at 4th level). If they chose Arcane Training I at 4th level, they'd get more spells (casting progression like a Magus or Inquisitor). Make this one be dependent on having Arcane Armor Training so that they also have to use a feat to get it. Finally, you could have a high-level talent that requires a few metamagic feats and/or Spell Perfection that would let them get full 9-level casting, but it would be at the cost of a significant number of talents/feats. Of course this is very top-ended, and you wouldn't have any 1st-level spellcasting at 1st character level when you really need it the most.

Finally, you could leave it the way it is, but have the upgrades to casting be available as feats as well. So you could say "The vigilante can sacrifice either a feat or a vigilante talent to gain Arcane Training II once attaining 4th level." and so on, or simply create a feat called "Boost Vigilante Spells", which can be taken multiple times, that does the same thing. This would let you take more of the flavorful vigilante abilities by sacrificing some feats, while still getting decent casting progression. I personally think if anything should be done, this last option is the best of my three suggestions.

Ravingdork wrote:
Yes, such a feat should absolutely exist. Perhaps place a limitation on it though, such as only allowing it to be taken once and possibly only allow a talent chosen from another specialization.

I like Ravingdork's idea here. Make a feat that lets you grab one Vigilante talent from a different specialization, if you meet the prereqs, and you can't take it multiple times. This way you can dabble a little bit in one of the other specializations without breaking the game.

But any vigilante, because that way can get one locked in.

I'd run it, but with work right now it's not feasible, plus it'd be my first PbP and probably not a good idea.

I dunno, the Zealot seems like a weaker version of the Inquisitor to me. I don't see much that an Inquisitor couldn't do there, and if you want full 6th-level casting you're using up 5 of your talents. Am I missing anything?

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

I think the thing that confuses me most about the Warlock's... and along with that the Zealot's... casting is that technically when you're in your social persona you only have [Spell] Training I, so you can only cast your lowest-level spells, but they're not part of a separate pool of spellcasting... yeah it's weird. Mark, care to weigh in on that one?

Description: Elexsanda came from a well-to-do family, and so she learned at an early age how to dress well and be proper. She keeps a semblance of that even now, as an aspiring adventurer. Her clothes are always neat and clean, and she will take time each night to assure that they stay that way. She has deeply tanned skin from years under the bright sun (though very little of that was in the open desert... she was fond of tanning herself on the roof of her parents' estate). She now wears the robes and headgear of a seer of the church of Nethys, which she believes to be the modern interpretation of the ancient goddess Nepthys. Accordingly, her outfit is white on one side and black on the other. She often wears face paint to match her outfit as well. She truly serves Nepthys' son, Anubis, and carries a jackal mask as well. She carries little in the way of weaponry, relying on her magical skills and her allies to keep her safe.

How she came to Wati: Elexsanda was born and raised in the opulence of Wati's aristocracy, and knows the affluent parts of the city well, though she's relatively unfamiliar with the slums.

Background again to keep everything together:

Elexsanda Sylmat was born to a well-known family in Wati, and was coddled until her 16th birthday, when she began having her visions. Each night, she would
awake screaming from a nightmare about undead creatures, graverobbers, and disturbed tombs. Her family took her to every healer they could find, but no one
had answers for them. That is, until they stumbled upon a blind beggar who, upon seeing Elexsanda, told her to look to the old gods for guidance, to save her from
her nightmares. Despite the fact that the old gods hadn't been actively revered in many years, Elexsanda and her parents were able to find a small shrine to Anubis
within a larger temple to the dual-faced god Nethys. When Elexsana stood before the statue of the jackal-faced god, she experienced the most powerful vision
to date... a clear image of a tomb bearing her family's name, ransacked and crawling with undead creatures.
From that moment, Elexsanda vowed to search out this ancient tomb and save her ancestors from their fates as horrid, undead creatures. With the help of Anubis
and the priests in the temple of Nethys, over the next several years, Elexsanda was able to develope much stronger visions, and control when and how they
occurred. She was even able to save her parents from an assassination attempt which she foresaw through one of her visions... when the assassin came to their
home, she simply hid herself, waiting until he was just outside her parents' door, and burned him alive with a spell of fire.
Now, years later, Elexsanda has experienced another vision, this one of a path that she may take to find the lost tomb of her ancestors. However, it would seem
that other groups also have their eye on the rumored tomb, and Elexsanda has determined that joining a party of adventurers will be the most direct way to reach
her family's tomb.

I havent' handed off the Sorcerer Bloodlines guide to anyone yet, as there is a lot less backlogged work to do on it (really just like... two new bloodlines I need to write up, I think?) so I should be able to get that one updated myself in a relatively short time. I'll make myself a deadline for it of next Sunday (the 28th) so that it gets done. If I have time, I'll also update it to include what you get from Variant Multiclassing with each bloodline as well (which is very similar to the Eldritch Heritage feat line, but you get things a bit quicker).

TL;DR: Yes, I'm still in charge of that one. :)

EDIT: Added a To-Do list to the Sorcerer bloodlines page, looks like I'm currently missing the Ghoul and Nanite bloodlines, and I'd perhaps like to do Bloodrager bloodlines as well at some point. Are there any other Paizo-published bloodlines that I'm missing?

Re:Naga Aspirant's wild shape vs. vanilla druid wild shape.

Aspirant's bond: Only gives an additional spell each level from a limited spell list (up to 4th). However, there are some wizard spells on the list, like greater invisibility so it depends on the build. At higher levels the loss of spontaneous casting is just not worth it.

Aspirant's Enlightenment: Not worth getting a +4 bonus to saves against Nagas while losing a +4 save to Fey spell-like abilities/supernatural abilities along with certain spells like warp wood.

Naga Shape: Not really worth it, since you lose your limbs, you can only cast verbal spells without a metamagic or the Natural spell feat.

Augmented Form:Wow, major suckage. Lets see, give up venom immunity, a thousand faces, and timeless body for some other options? Other than maybe Charming gaze, none are really that great for what you lose. You could get back the poison immunity at 13th level if you take venomous bite at 9th but why trade it any ways.

True Naga:Give up unlimited wild shape to become a Naga??? Pass.

Looking over what you give up, it is not worth it as an archetype, except maybe as an evil NPC.

Looking over the Nagaji entry, there does not seem to be any of the ACG classes listed. Here is my 2cp.
Arcanist - Red
Bloodrager - Sky blue, even has a bloodline that fits the race.
Brawler - Green/Blue. The loss of Int is augmented by Brawlers Cunning.
Hunter - Green
Investigator - Red
Shaman - Orange
Skald - Blue
Slayer - Green/Blue (if you play a more charismatic type)
Swashbuckler - Blue (maybe even sky blue)
Warpriest - Green/blue

While I concur with your rating of the Naga Aspirant as a whole (it really is mostly worse than a standard Druid) I am playing one in PFS and have found that having those few wizard spells makes a HUGE difference in combat. I'm playing him as a grappler build (took a single level dip in Maneuver Master Monk) and he's a beast.

However, in general, the Naga Aspirant is worse than the standard Druid.

I'm also curious about PP for GMs.... if I'm running the game on Free RPG Day, does the character I apply the credit to get the extra PP as if he/she were one of the characters playing? Or does he/she need to fulfill one of the other requirements?

Willing to trade the whole set for that Dhampir, even though it is not going to happen probably.

Also willing to trade two to one (or even three to one if you make a compelling case) in non race boons to race boons.

PM sent.

Hi guys,

My June subscription shipment is still showing pending. It's likely because my credit card number had changed (stupid Bank of America getting hacked and sending out new cards) and so the payment failed the first time, but I've since changed it to a working card. Can you all just look at the order and make sure I don't need to do anything else to get it pushed through?

Order number is 3605167.

Thanks as always, Paizo CS team!

You'll want to double check the billing address information.

Hmm... it looks right to me. I could try an old address, but the address that's listed there should be correct.
