Can I make a suggestion? If you have a table that summarises the spirits' abilities, please list them by constellation (and level within each constellation), so that people who like a particular constellation can more easily identify spirits they want to bind. (That would be in addition to the table that lists bind DCs, page numbers etc.)

Thanks Alex.

I'd be quite happy *not* to see any mythic material in the hardback, maybe as a high stretch goal for a separate book.

I'd also be happy to leave out the colour aspects as well. $ 75 dollars is a lot, especially when shipping outside the US will be added on top of that. $50 with black and white illustrations would be good for me, especially as I already have volumes 1 & 2. (Perhaps a reduction is possible for those who have both volumes, perhaps by emailing you a picture of us holding those books?)

Incidentally, now with an upgraded occultist class, I would *love* to see an archetype that lets it use medium abilities (per Purple Duck Games Legendary Classes: Covenant Magic and Legendary Classes: More Covenant Magic), especially as there is an archetype for mediums that lets them use pact magic in LC: MCM.

"How about releasing an anthology of the stories as a PDF for all backers with a print copy as an add-on?"
I like that idea... I wouldn't want the hardback filled with lots of fiction!

"This is totally NOT the last book on Pact Magic I want to do. I still want to do the Weird Bestiary, I still want to do Animism, and I still want to write up King Solomon's 72 Demons as spirits. As a result, I'm not convinced that Ultimate is the most appropriate title for the book."
I like the idea of these, too! :) Just try not to take *all* my money, OK! ;)

Question. Regarding what you said about looking at the spirits, does that mean that there's been a general upgrade of the abilities for some or many spirits? The hp damage done by many abilities isn't much on reading, for example, and some spirits just seem to lack oomph to me. Of course, some are meant to be of situational use, like the one that lets you travel to other planes.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

That sounds awesome, Alex. :)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

There isn't a graveknight version, sorry.

To the OP:
Please look at 100% Crunch: Liches. It has 42 liches of many different classes!

This thread isn't what I thought it was going to be about [I missed the word Kickstarter in the title before], but I'm still glad you've started it. Interesting reading!

(I thought it was going to be about stuff like: If you're releasing stat blocks or other crunch, ensure that at least 99% of the material is correct.)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Alex, what is the big project?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Check out this link for free PDFs. PDF number 2 has the scientific innovator alchemist archetype; might be of interest to you!

Click here for the link and scroll down the page a bit.

The link is for a current Kickstarter project, the Veranthea Codex.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Seems a good idea, Rite. Hope it works to sell other stuff too! :)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

IIRC, monk and rogue.

Just noticed something last night. My copy of UC is missing pages, in the spell section. (I treat my books well, so nothing has fallen out.) Is anybody else's copy missing pages?

I know it's 3 years since the book was released, I just never noticed before. :(


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Interesting. Thanks Kvantum.
It's particularly important this year because I move at the end of the month!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Isn't it the case that they don't start shipping August releases until the first day of Gen Con?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Mini Rant.

I had to get a new computer this week, and discovered the new Skype. OMG, it's bad, *reaaallly* bad. And not in the good way.

There is NOTHING good I can say about it. They drowned the baby before throwing it out with the water. :-(

If it ain't broke, it doesn't need fixing.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

This story about Peter Jackson may interest some of you.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Which ones, Justin?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Thanks, Sleet Storm. That's perfect. :)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I'm looking for a monster ability, class feature, or spell that lets the creature see through the eyes of another creature [that it magically controls]. Is there such a thing?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Awesome. Thanks! :-)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hmmm... I guess I didn't explain myself well enough.

Would the results be 6 and 14? It'd be nice to know the effective bonus for rolling twice and using the good result, and similarly, the effective penalty for rolling twice and using the bad result.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

If you roll 2d20 and use the best or worst result, what are the average scores for each condition (best and worst)?

There must be a mathematical way to determine this.

In case anyone has missed it, EZG gave an amazing review for Legendary Classes: More Covenant Magic.

Here's a quote from it: "Wow. Just wow. 5 stars + seal of approval, would go higher if I could, candidate for my Top Ten of 2014."

I've done a fair amount of work on The Xiao's ideas for new influences now, and one for psychopomps called the Sacred Duty.

If anyone else has ideas, please let me know! :-)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

About the occult influence:

Spoiler:
The occult subtype is about controlling magic in its purest sense; for example, sensing magic (detect magic, greater arcane sight as the fundamental influence ability), ending magic (dispel magic, mage’s disjunction), protection from magic (globe of invulnerability, mind blank, spell resistance), and so on. We couldn’t call it the “magic” influence because all a medium does is magic.

It’s not meant to be the “default” or generic influence, as none are meant to be so. If you wish a particular influence to be a or the generic one, pick one or several that best fit your game and the type of stories you wish to run.

I had included a definition of occult spirits earlier on, but obviously it became misplaced somewhere along the line.
A definition of occult spirits is as follows. It is any creature (of the fey, outsider or undead types) of Int 6 or higher and with the ability to use the spells listed as occult trance spell-like abilities (or their greater versions, such as greater dispel magic), as an innate spell-like ability or spell.

Example occult spirits include:
FEY: norn, nymph, pixie.
OUTSIDER: aeon (pleroma, theletos), agathinon (avoral, draconal), angel (astral deva, monadic deva, movanic deva, planetar, solar), archon (star, trumpet), asura (asurenda, tripurasura), azata (ghaele, lillend, lyrakien), baregara, caulborn, daemon (cacodaemon, ceustodaemon, derhodaemon, hydrodaemon, leukodaemon, meladaemon, piscodaemon, vulnudaemon), demodand (all varieties), demon (babau, balor, glabrezu, marilith, nalfeshnee, quasit), devil (belier, contract, imp, pit fiend), div (aghash, akvan, doru, ghawwas, pairaka), garuda, genie (marid), hound of Tindalos, inevitable (lhaksharut, marut, zelekhut), kami (zuishin), night hag, oni (spirit, void yai), protean (imentesh, keketar), qlippoth (chernobue, cynthigot, iathovos, thulgaunt), rakshasa (dandaduka, maharaja, marai, standard, tataka), sceaduinar, shinigami, shining child, titan (elysian, hekatonkheires, thanatotic), xacarba.
UNDEAD: devourer, lich, nightshade (all varieties), some penanggalen, tzitzimitl, some vampires, winterwight.

About the legendary medium:

Spoiler:
In earlier versions, the revelation medium could swap boons for revelations when the medium wishes, because they are both of the same level of power. Later on, it was decided to change things so that the archetype switches the ability to gain boons with the ability to gain revelations. As a late change, I forgot to update the stat block for the legendary medium. I made sure I’d changed all the other stat blocks in relation to later changes in archetypes, covenants etc. This one slipped through, and for that I apologise!
You can use the stat block as is, or replace the boons that he has with revelations, and replace the Extra Boon feats if you wish.

I’m really glad you asked your questions, because it highlights where I went wrong. Can’t be perfect all the time! I hope my reply helps!

Thanks for the new influence ideas! I’ll have a think about them... Btw, jyoti and evil titans are also anti-divine.
Should there be a compilation of Covenant Magic and More Covenant Magic, possibly with other Purple Duck classes, I’m sure these mistakes will be dealth with. I’m also sure that your influence suggestions will be taken into account. :)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hi The Xiao. Thanks for your kind comments.

I'll endeavour to answer your questions, but one in particular requires some research. I'll try to answer all by the end of the weekend, so that the answers are all together!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

It's a maximum RDN. Creighton is excellent at finding appropriate art (to fill space). :)

I've just learned that Floor Jansen, previously of After Forever, is Nightwish's new singer. How do they compare to Nightwish?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hi. My sidecart says that I have one item in my sidecart (which is correct), Pact Magic Unbound vol 2.
However, the book isn't listed in the sidecart, nor is it included in the Example Shipment page. Anyone know why?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hmm... there are a few spoilers here. I hope that someone hides those later.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I hope people are enjoying this book!

Big thanks to everyone involved, especially to David Nicholas Ross for his advice. It was great to see what the artists did!

PDG don't include favoured class bonuses with their stat blocks, so here are my recommendations:

Spoiler:
* Goblin Medium 3 (CR 2): 3 FC points. One on hp, +2 increasing covenant/SLA damage by +1.

* Dwarf Medium 4 (CR 3): 4 FC points. 0 on hp, +4 went on increasing Concentration bonus by +4.

* Half-elf Medium 5 (CR 4): 5 FC points. 5 on hp.

* Human Medium 6 (CR 5): 6 FC points. 6 on hp.

* Sea Hag Medium 5 (CR 7): 5 FC points. 5 on hp.

* Unicorn Medium 7 (CR 8): 7 FC points. 7 on hp.

* Hobgoblin Medium 10 (CR 9): 10 FC points. +10 increasing covenant/SLA damage by +10.

* Human Trance Warrior 10 (CR 9): 10 FC points. 10 on hp.

* Elf Medium 13 (CR 12): 13 FC points. 5 on hp, 8 on 4 extra SLAs, as follows: +1 1st, +2 2nd, +1 3rd. I suggest adding: arcane lock, bless, enthrall, and remove curse to SLAs known. (Note that enthral can’t be used in a trance.)

* Human Inner Eye Fighter 13 (CR 12): 13 FC points. 13 on hp.

* Half-Orc Antipaladin 3/Medium 13 (CR 15): 13 FC points. 13 on hp.

* Legendary Elf Medium 20 (CR 19): 20 FC points. 4 on hp, 16 on 8 extra SLAs, as follows: +2 1st, +1 2nd, +2 3rd, +1 4th, +2 5th. I suggest adding: arcane lock, identify, dimensional anchor, planar adaptation, plane shift, restful sleep, speak with dead, and unholy blight to SLAs known.

For creatures I would second Dark Fey, the Midgard Bestiary, and the Tome of Horrors Complete (the three I own) from that list. I'd add to that the fantastic Book of Monster Templates and 101 Not So Simple Monster Templates by Rite Publishing, both of which add lots of great options to modify existing creatures.

As for me, as a DM primarily I would like to see more NPC stats, particularly books of monsters with class levels, and I'm always eager to find more books with treasures for my players to find. I think I am pretty full of player races, classes, archetypes, and feats (far, far too many feats as is for me).

Idilippy, I second the recommendation for 101 Not So Simple Monster Templates.

When it comes to NPC stats and monsters with class levels, have you heard of Scions of Evil and the 100% Crunch line from Raging Swan Press?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I like it, but think it's for NPCs/other monsters.

If GMing a game, I'd not allow it for PCs because I don't usually allow evil PCs. Maybe for a Way of the Wicked campaign.

Maybe you should re-post your question in the (off-topic) Ask James Jacobs thread?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I'm surprised that he's been at Paizo for six years!! Only seems like last week! (Exaggeration.)

Best wishes for you both!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Thanks, James.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hi James,
Could we please have:

* Proper rules for building our own troop units.

* A moratorium on demons for at least 2-3 years. I'm enjoying Wrath of the Righteous, but a break from demons for a while would be nice!

* Critical weakness removed from the robot subtype. IMO it gimps them too much and besides, robots are less squishy than flesh and blood creatures.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Looks like I should have posted in the Ask James Jacobs thread instead, so I'll do that now! :-)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Some of the following books may be of interest to you, Rachel.

100% crunch line by Raging Swan Press.

Just a suggestion. Be very careful what you post here. If anyone's employers reads this there may be negative consequences for you.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Nick, I imagine its because they included quite a few mythic demons and other creatures in the Mythic hardback, knowing it would accompany the AP.
