I'm REALLY hoping they cover how someone becomes one of Shyka.....


Is there any guidance for parties wanting to form new orders ?


Anyone read the article on Geryon yet ???
If so how was it ?

Why does that make me think Lyssala ?

Ooohhh....I LIKE !

Do they describe them as having any set motif to their armor ?

I'm really hoping for more info on the Ulfen Children traded to the fey of Frost's End.....


I have a character concept that's a nascent Shyka...maybe I'll finally be able to explore that idea ;)


FINALLY !!!


I had originally intended to do a Hellfire Keneticist for HV.
Thought it would be a simple matter of creating an infusion to take with my fire element....what I found is that Hellfire is rather inconsistently described...both in regards to spells like Hellfire Ray....and some creature abilities that use hellfire....

Best case scenario....do what I did and ask your GM how he/she specifically want's to call it.

You know,we have spent decades trying to convince the non roleplaying public that we are not a bunch of devil worshiping psychopaths and this AP manages to reverse all the good work done over these years, and yes I have read the adventures . This is going over the line and it can only harm us in the long run.
Vampire: the Masquerade blew up all the good work in 1991, yet the hobby is still around.
I would argue that VtM isn't a relevant issue here as even the Lunatic Fringe Christians accept that they are not real. On the other hand they are convinced in the reality of the Devil and all his works.If you guys are ok with killing the innocent then that's your choice but Paizo lost me on this...and I've come to the conclusion that I'm ending my subs after Strange Aeons.

Personally...I have not spent decades of playing trying to convince non-roleplayers of anything. I really don't care what conclusions idiots come to.

This AP changes nothing....it's fiction...a fantasy...a game, nothing more, nothing less.

If a small handful of foolish people want to make it "reality" in their minds, that's up to them.There will always be "that kind" running around waiving a banner of some sort.

I'm more than happy to leave them to their delusions ;)

So I was considering a whip whielding character and making one who can actually contribute to a fight doesn't seem that easy.

That said I like the concept (Iwas thinking about a zealous follower of Callistria dedicated to vengance) and the potential utility one can get out of the whip with trip and disarm. Granted it only really works against human opponents but since I would probably play this in PFS that's a minor issue.

So is there someone out there who managed to build an effective whip user? I'm thinking half elf brawler and possibly multiclass with mutation warrior (for extra dex and access to advanced weapon training later on) and/or warpriest.

Any idea how to make this work?

A Warpriest would certainly be able to get the damage higher....

Not so much what I was looking for......I'm looking more for feats and such that work with Keneticist (not things that allow other classes to partially act like Keneticists).....
How about Expanded Metakinesis? It basically gives you a few metamagic feats to choose form, that you can use as per normal metakinesis. Personally, Furious Spell interests me the most. RAGEFIREBLASTKILL
THAT sounds more like it ;)

What other options does it add ?

God's I hope this has more options for the keneticict.....

So do I just hit the FAQ button to flag it for consideration ?


5 people marked this as FAQ candidate.

I was just looking at a spell from Occult origins...
The spell is called "Mantle of doubt".

It states "When a creature within the mantle’s radius attacks you or attempts to affect you with a harmful effect, it must succeed at a Will save as these spectres of uncertainty force themselves into its mind."

But the range is personal, and no radius is given ???


Bless you both....
Since I already looked at APG I wonder how I missed it :(


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I know there is a feat that allows spontaneous casters to add additional spells known....but I can't remember the actual name of it to find it on the OGC....and I can't remember what bloody book it's in...and since I have pretty much all of them...I'm getting frustrated checking one after another...

A little help anyone ;)

Depends on what stands out to you. Ear-piercing scream, disrupt silence, and echolocation are all spells that I've seen be particularly popular for other characters (or help vox out a lot but are new so just not popular yet, for disrupt silence).

My inspiration for the Character was the Bene Gesserit (Dune)....but most of this is covered by Charm, suggestion, command, etc....

I'm also adding elements of the 3.5 Dark Speech feats, and the "Black Tounge" form LOTR.....


Any "stand out's" in the spells added to the Vox's spell list ?


I sure hope they put some new utility/wild talents in here for the Keneticist.....

Someone said up-thread that the Vox Mesmerist can hit multiple target's with their version of painful stare....can someone explain how that works ?

Imagine in your mind a smooth silky blend of mesmerist powers with sound striker bard-esque sonic attacks, and you'll get a good picture of it.

This is sounding perfect for my "Dark Speech" speaking cultist....awesome!


Someone said up-thread that the Vox Mesmerist can hit multiple target's with their version of painful stare....can someone explain how that works ?


Does the Vox Mesmerist have new "bold stares" ??? or does it just add a verbal component to any existing bold stares you take ?


I was just working on a pitch for my DM for the same thing.....
Using the Race building rules...a 0 HD race version comes out at 26RP, which puts it in the Svirfneblin range (but this is the full monty more or less)....May have to see if I can tone it down to closer to yours....


Can I get more details on the Vox mesmerist Archetype ???


Any feats or archetypes that work with Keneticist ?


Can we get info on the Cabalist ?

Could someone spoiler the obedience for Groetus ?


Psychic (abomination)... possibly a deep one hybrid :P


I'll have to see if the archetype is something I can relate to..."massive destructive potential" certainly sounds interesting ;)

Don't be fooled by the sparkly, they're living weapons. Magical girls are one of the few natural predators of evil wizards and fiend lords.

I wanna sic Sailor Somol on Sorshen.

A friend of mine is a magical girl fan and if you want a Faustian twist to the genre watch "Magical Girl Madoka"

I actually just tried watching some video's in an attempt to understand the trope....but I can't get past the art style....it's not just uninteresting....but a complete turn off (at least in my opinion)...

I mean mini skirts and bows...I cant imagine any one outside of an eight year old girl finding that interesting.....

Ah well...to each their own.

I'm interested to see how they pull of the Cabalist...I have had several character concepts that sounds well suited too....

Really eager to see what the new Keneticist abilities are like....especially fire trap.....

how will the vigilante alter egos work with the amnesia?

Splendidly I would say.....you simply don't even remember your alter ego ;)


So I'm curious.....is there any point in generating a "back story" for characters in this AP ? Or is it going to be assigned in some fashion....for example based on the AP trait you choose for the character ?


I need a feat that let's a race use a racial SP more than one a day. I was certain I saw one somewhere......

Sound familiar to anyone ?


So is that a Cyclops on the cover ? or something else ?


Is it just me or is the silver section running down the center of each breast oddly reminiscent of the old style razor blades.....?


Anyone care to explain what all this "magical girl" reference is about ?


I have been building a fire keneticist for Hells Vengence...so have of course been watching all these threads as I try to wrap my brain around the class (and should probably thank you all for the input...it has actually helped me to understand the class over time).

I really don't think burn is the tragedy that some seem to paint it as.
Like every other class, it's a limiting factor....and like every other class, it helps add flavor to the class if you look at it imaginatively enough.

The only thing that currently holds the class back...is that it's mechanics are unique enough to not fit in easily with previous material that has been released.

There are very few feats that lend well to it's mechanics, and next to nothing in the way of prestige classes that work with it.

So the diversity of what you can currently achieve is somewhat limited.

Hopefully they continue to add options for Psychic classes in general...and especially options that work with the keneticist.

I get the same use from them as I get from any Iconic....Wayne does some really snazzy art....and they give me a basic idea of what the class is about....end of use.

All elements, it's a universal utility wild talent.

AH...I thought he was assuming that the ability score bonuses being labeled as "size" bonuses was actually increasing size ;)

For example a kintecist can by around level 11 be constantly large size (even if your race started small sized) with a constant reach weapon (for 20' reach). Add on combat reflexes and suddenly no one can approach the party without being hit for at least 6d6 + 6. Add on a rider to the attack such as chilling infusion (yes I know you can only do that for a round or two before the burn cost becomes too much, but a round or two is all you need to turn the fight) and suddenly you are a CC fiend. You can do all of this and have a constant fly speed if you want. None of this is OP at level 11, but it is useful and fun.

Whu ??? Unless I seriously missed something...which element allows you to change size ? Earth ?


Finally got mine.....all in all I'm pleased. Good advice on running an "evil" game....repeated frequently for those who are a bit slow....better (or maybe more relevant) AP traits....and a snap shot of the new iconics.
All in all...one of the best PG's I have seen.


So I am betting no players guide today....probably moot as we would not be able to download it anyway....

Keneticist (fire) that is actually a channeler of Hellfire...

DM has already OK'd an infusion that allows damage from my fire based effects to be 1/2 fire, 1/2 unholy.

I'm currently looking at creating a wild talent that functions as "Death Knell Aura" as her hellfire is meant to be fueled by souls.

I'm also looking for a precedent for souls being obliterated (not subject to reincarnation etc) as that seems particularly evil (in a fluff sort of way)

This is actually a really cool concept, though the idea of hellfire being fueled by souls does give it a WoW Warlock feel. As for obliterating a soul, that would need to be a high level ability.

I'm just hoping we don't face too many Devils who would be immune to both the fire and unholy damage....

The current download situation is pretty aggravating to many of us I'm sure...I keep periodically going to my downloads page and trying to download my recent purchases....to no avail.

I'm not particularly "tech savy"....although I get the idea that the server is overloaded, and is more or less stuck trying to solve more computations than it can handle...

So what is the best thing for people to do ?

Is my frequent attempt to download adding to/aggravating the problem ?

Do people need to back off for a few day's and let it resolve itself ?
