The only mention of Groetus is the Truth apocrypha subdomain. ^_^

So what's the Domain like ?....PLEASE....

Can't we just wishlist which Iconic we want to see get eaten on the cover?

We don't put iconics on the covers of Bestiaries. And in any event, the cover was ordered months ago so it's already well in progress.

The sketch is DELIGHTFUL.

Wayne ?....please tell me it's Wayne doing the cover ???

I can't wait to see the finalized cover.

I hope Wayne did the cover :P


Anything fun in here for followers of Groetus ?

When I saw this thread had 40 new posts for me to read, I rejoiced. I figured that there must be in depth discussion on the new planes of power kineticist archetype.

But no....

.....Ditto......

Anyone have any tidbits on what an Elemental Purist gives up?
Answered here... and here.

So still trying to wrap my head around this....so at 7th you can take infusions and forms not usually associated with your element ( 1 for every four levels) ?

But you need to enter a specific state to use them ?
What are the constraints on entering that state ?


In folklore Hag's are numbered among them ;)

Well technically it is how some of them look in Pathfinder and in modern society in general;)

I prefer it when they look to older folklore, which Pathfinder has actually been pretty good about ;)

I imagine there will be wings involved...

God's I hope not....that "image" is the thing that bug's me the most...making fey all "winged and glittery"....that's not how the good folk look.....:P


Feats ?


I'm doing a Psychic with the Abomination discipline....

I had issues with Firbolg myself, but otherwise yes they are solid books. :)

As a Gaelic Polytheist.....I tend to have some issue with all the fey creatures, as well as the Druid and Bard class....but when all is said and done....this is not about "authentic representation" of different ethnic mythos....it's a role playing game. So you have to give some "wiggle room" to pop culture representations :P

This version of Pact Wizard works perfect for a concept I have been wanting to do for some time ;)

I'm hoping for some updated devils from back in Council of Thieves. I mean we already got Nemesis Devil. Where's Cabal Devil or Chort? How about Firebreather devil?

I'm a BIG fan of the Cabal devils....wish they were not so under represented. Would also like to see them tweaked a bit given all the mechanics that have been released since.....some hex's would be interesting....also the art for them could be better :P

I hope the Yaddithian will be an aberration, it would be nice to have at least one aberration 0HD race.

Agreed.....just not impressed with the existing visual. I hope they are far more "human" looking.....

I go the other way on this one. I think the game has more than enough "human-but-not-quite" races, I'd much rather see a full on inhuman weirdo. I really dug that picture (with its weird toothy snout and funny legs!)

The more I think on it, it's just that I think that character looks like something from a muppets show. I don't mind them looking alien...I just don't like them looking goofy :P

Amazingly, the wondrous invention called the Internet provides an answer! Uncanny.

Psychic (Abomination discipline). Was the "village idiot"....wakes to a shaved head and swelling in his cranial area....a partially healed trepanation on the back of his skull....and only a dim memory of something being let into his head....

One point I'm still unclear on after reading about the amnesia....I know you are missing years from your memory....but are you expected to have been in the assylum all that time ???


"Rhan-Tegoth, Herald Of The End Times " ......wonder if/how Groetus play's into that ???


Fingers crossed......


I'm currently playing a Vox Mesmerist in HV that I am actually enjoying immensely. I have taken fluff elements of 3.5 "Dark Speech", Dune's "weirding way" and Tolkien's "dark speech of Mordor".....as inspiration....and having a blast with her.

Historically I have shied away from enchantment based character concepts, as it was my experience it was to hard to land effects. But by going Changeling (Hag magic/Object of desire) I have landed every effect I have tried so far (2nd level).


Well the Necrologist certainly sounds interesting.....


Are there any feats that would specifically benefit a Kineticist ?

What does Disconcerting Knowledge do? Requirements?

You use a Knowledge skill specific to the creature in place of the Intimidate skill when demoralizing it by listing off its weaknesses and how you know exactly how to kill it, which is pretty sweet.

Unfortunately you have to have either Bardic Knowldge or have the Knowldge Domain.

No monster lore ?


Can we get a run down of the Mesmerist archetype ?

Could we get a little more information on the Dark Elementalist....

is there a mechanic behind the use of "souls" to protect them from burn ? something like Death knell or some such ?

Does it do anything besides give you a buffer against burn (like change how your element is treat regarding resistances etc) ?

really just anything that would help get the head around it ;)

So the way it works is that they are all evil and when you kill something of equal or higher level, within 1 minute, you can deal damage to its soul and remove 1 burn, but you can only have, at max, 3 burn ever at a time.

You STILL suffer the non-lethal damage, but when the burn is removed, that non-lethal heals like normal.

The higher levels you gain, the more devastating the soul ability gains.

At higher levels, when the soul returns from the dead, it takes wisdom damage (2d6). At 16th level, the soul is actually destroyed.

Using this ability both lowers burn and makes it harder to res the target.

Pretty awesome imo. =)

I'll have to think that through.....may be a good fit for my Hellfire Keneticist.......Many thanks ;)

Well, you also have to deal with the owb.

"The race's closest relationship is with the dark folk, who worship owbs as proxies to gods of the shadows. Most dark folk believe the first of their kind were created by owbs—or more powerful owb-like beings."

Just waiting for the opportunity to play my Caligni "Owb caller" (unchained summoner/Shadow eidolon) :P


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I'm eager to see what they came up with for Keneticists....


You may want to take a look at the Caligni....that will give you a pretty good base to work from ;)


I was just checking my wishlist to see what's coming out the end of this month.....it looks like nothing.

Am I missing something ?


Magdh and Shyka......I can't wait :)


2 people marked this as a favorite.

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 ?

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 ?
