Beings with powers drawn from the might of the heavens themselves, godlings first appeared in The Genius Guide to the Godling. That product gave us two hero classes, the clever godling and mighty godling, based on the classic Greek heroes and heroines who could claim Olympians as parents or grand-parents. It also offered a godling prestige class, for characters whose divine heritage doesn’t manifest until later in their careers. Not long after, the spellcasting classes of adept godling and eldritch godling were presented in The Genius Guide to Mystic Godlings, creating godlings that took after the demi-mortal spellcasters of myth and legend. The classes immediately garnered a large following, and requests for additional material quickly began making their way to Super Genius Games.

The first book to offer additional support for them was Rite Publishing’s 101 Renegade Class Feats, which includes 7 feats designed specifically for use by the godling classes, as well as feats for numerous other classes created by Super Genius Games and other publishers. And now, The Genius Guide to the Godling Ascendant expands the classes even further, with rules for using godling abilities to create exemplar monsters, new ways for characters with non-godling classes to represent scions of immortal power, and new divine traits, ascendancies, scion talents, and feats for the four godling classes, as well as new ways to introduce the concept of godlings to a campaign.

32 pages of divine awesomeness!

I already bought the first two Godling Products, I'm not sure there's enough additional material here for me to justify paying full price for a product that is mostly reprinted material. Any chance someone who bought the previous two Genius Guides to Godlings could get some kind of discount?

Or a version of the product with the new material only?

With the exception of three feats, which are revised, this book IS all-new material. The 20 ascendancies, 41 talents, seven card-rule options, and the new monster and alternate class options are ALL NEW.

This is not a compilation of the first two godling books. It's a massive expansion that works with all the godlings, but can also be used on its own to create godling-flavored characters and monsters without using the godling classes.

Just got this, and I have to say that I'm a lot happier with this than other godling supplements. This comments the first two very well. There are a few areas where you're like WTF because a few things aren't spelled out that well (btw, there's a lot of "of" instead of "or" in various sentences), but overall I'm content with what came out.

I'm really glad you like the book! I'm not happy to heart the of/or problem is still in this version. I may have sent the wrong file to layout (which would be entirely my fault). I'll have to take a look at that.

But the rules are the am either way, and if an update is needed, it'll go out to all purchasers automatically.

Man this is JUST what the doctor ordered for the godling, I have only glanced at it (my printer ran out of ink so i couldnt bring it with me on the train to read) but I always felt like the godling needed more choices in terms of divine traits and ascendencies that were a little lack luster, but this seems to beat the tar out of that problem.

LOL, they won't see this BBEG for many sessions yet. I will be sure to tell them what you said when the time comes. I am revamping the leader of the Vodoni from the Spelljammer module, Under the Dark Fist. Making him a Mighty Godling instead of a Maeder, which never made sense anyway.

You're welcome. We *have* found that if a bunch of fans all say "We'll give you money if you do X," then we generally make money on X. :D


First, let me say how much I love this book. I am now seriously considering making my next campaign an all-godling campaign (Young Pantheon of Kor Kammor, or something like that). I already loved the godling, and this takes that love to a whole new level.

Now, the questions. First, with Talent for Mystacism and Ascendand Spellcaster, is there really a need to keep ascendancies and scion talents separate? Couldn't you just say they are all godling talents?

Second, why does the immortal mystery give bonus spells earlier than the godling bloodline? That's not really a complaint - the background fluff for everything in the "Godling Characters of Other Classes" is cool enough to justify buying the book even without all the cool, flavorful rules. I'm just wondering if you think the oracle is underpowered or if I missed something.

Third, any change of a Genius Guide to godling Magic? Id love more godling spells and spellcaster class options!

There are limits to what you can take as a scion talent with Talent for Mystacism or as an ascendancy with Ascended Spellcaster. Essentially, you can only take magic things as an ascendancy, and only take mundane things as a talent. However, there *are* magic things appropriate for scion tlanets, so they are listed with the talents, and if a adept or eldritch godling wants them, they can use Talent for Mystacism to get them. However, they can't use that ascendancy to grab the extraordinary combat abilities of clever or mighty godlings.

There are other ways to grab those talnets, of course. Basically, the distinction is designed to make it tougher for a godlking to get further away from their core competency, and that's intentional.

Because oracles get their bonus spells before sorcerers get theirs. :D

I'm glad you enjoyed the book! The card-based options where tricky to implement, since I couldn't mention any specific products by name. But I figure if they work with my old Whimsey Cards and Torg cards, it should work with anything else you might happen to have on hand. :D

Realmwalker wrote:

Depending on how this one sells, that's a definite possibility.


Three points.
1) I would like to say I've really enjoyed the products you guys have put out. They carry the feel of products made by people who enjoy gaming rather than just those looking for a paycheck.

2) Reading your newest book one oddity stuck out to me in regards to the 'Divine Weapon' ability. Being a Greater Scion ability that can only be taken at 10th level or higher, it seems odd to me there is no enhancement bonus inherent to the weapon like a 10th level character would normally have. Should there be? Or does the wise man stack this talent with the Trophy Taker ability to provide that benefit?
2B) It says it deals base damage and later lists an element, is this base damage the elemental damage described, or does it have an elemental bonus (like flaming) on top of this damage? Not trying to munchinkize, just want to be clear on what exactly this awesome weapon for an awesome being is. The other reason I ask is with a weapon of this power I want to know how it will affect bonuses from Trophy Taker etc in reference to the absolute +10 limit any magic item can have.
.....Edit: Also what is the divine weapons crit stance? If I use it as a Great Axe does it do x3 on a 20? Would it do x2 at 19-20 if proxying a Great Sword? Thank you in advance for your clarification.

3) Finally I wanted to ask have you guys considered making a Godling variant that uses the power of True Names? 3.5 had a rather pathetic class which used those abilities but brought very little new to the table. Other formats of fiction and games like Neverwinter Nights have always protrayed True Names as a Divine Ability and with what you guys have done so far, I believe you all could do something quite impressive with it. I'd design such a class myself but know of no one to publish it, so I implore you...show us more of your class-designing awesomeness.

I think your Godling Bloodline for sorcerer is too powerful. The 3rd level ability, Adept Metamagic, is identical to the 20th level capstone ability of the Arcane Bloodline.

Paizo Employee Modules Overlord

Golden-Esque wrote:

That's an entirely reasonable concern. In playtest we did not find it overpowering. The reasons are twofold.

First, the arcane bloodline has as its arcana "Whenever you apply a metamagic feat to a spell that increases the slot used by at least one level, increase the spell's DC by +1. This bonus does not stack with itself and does not apply to spells modified by the Heighten Spell feat."

This is relevant because it means if a arcane sorcerer uses a +2 level shift metamagic feat he's getting double power out of it -- both its normal effect, and the effect of taking a 2-level shift for Heighten Spell. This means that all metamagic feats used by the arcane sorcerer are twice as powerful, and thus using them is more effective. Lacking this double-whammy, the godling sorcerer doesn't as much out of fast metamagic feats as the arcane sorcerer.

Second, the arcane sorcerer's 20th level power is considerably more than the 3rd level godling sorcerer power. In addition to quick metamagic feats, the Arcane Apotheosis ability includes "Whenever you use magic items that require charges, you can instead expend spell slots to power the item. For every three levels of spell slots that you expend, you consume one less charge when using a magic item that expends charges."

That's the far more powerful part of the ability, especially at 20th level. Imagine an arcane sorcerer with a staff with a 9th level spell. The arcane sorcerer can cast that 9th level spell all day long in return for expending a 3rd level spell slot, then 4th, then 5th, and so on. It becomes at least dozens of potential 9th level castings per day. And that's with only a single spell in a single staff. And there's nothing to stop the sorcerer from making that spell wish (at 20th level, he can afford it).

Even so, if someone finds their playstyle makes the godling sorcerer unbalancingly powerful, there 3rd level ability can be limited to work twice as often as the arcane sorcerer's 3rd level ability to reduce its effectiveness.

Are you sure the arcana is essentially a free heightened spell? It might be my staggering tiredness, but that doesn't seem right.

Cheapy wrote:

Okay, no. I was using really short shorthand because it's late, and I overgeneralized.

Heighten Spell causes the spell to be considered higher level. That has two effects. It increases the DC (as DC is 10 + spell level +spellcasting ability modifier), and it causes the spell to be treated as higher level for effects that depend on spell level (such as globe of invulnerability).

The arcana says "Whenever you apply a metamagic feat to a spell that increases the slot used by at least one level, increase the spell's DC by +1. This bonus does not stack with itself and does not apply to spells modified by the Heighten Spell feat."

So you get a single +1 DC, rather than a DC based on how many levels you increase it, and it's not considered a higher level spell for the few spell-level-dependent effects.

So if the arcane sorcerer casts a Still Spell, it DC is +1, and he's gotten nearly double the value (it does 90% of what a +1 Heighten Spell shift would do).

If he casts a Still, Silent spell, he still only gets a +1 DC, so it's now only 150% as effective, and so on.

However, the core point that the arcane sorcerer gets more out of metamagic still stands, as does the fact that their 20th level power is WAY more potent than the godling sorcerer's 3rd level power.


Just downloaded it, and it looks great. The Mystic Godling player in my campaign must not see this..lol

And as usual, I have something to say about the art. Aside from the many recycled images, the rest of the artwork is fantastic! Big thumbs to the art director!

Is it just me, or is the minotaur missing about three feats? I see 11d10, but only Power Attack, Great Fortitude, and Improved Bull Rush. Also, why is there a +1 beside Power Attack?

Also, for being a CR 11, shouldn't it have a bit more for treasure than a huge greataxe and breastplate?

Lastly, how did you guys come up with a +4 on the gore's attack when the greataxe is +19, and BAB is +11?

"Exemplar monsters can be created by replacing some of a creature’s feats with ascendancies and/or scion talents."

Those three feats became the scion talents favored armor (breastplate),
force of brawn, and spell reaver.

kevin_video wrote:

Typo.

kevin_video wrote:

Absolutely. I supposed I should have said "Standard, including a huge greataxe and huge breastplate." I was adopting my stat block from the format I used for playtesting, where this was crucial combat information. I can update that.

kevin_video wrote:

That's an actual cut-and-paste error.It should be +19, 1d8+4. The powerful charge gore is correct, however.

Okay, I can get behind that. I would have put a note in there somewhere so as to not confuse anyone later though. Like "Exemplar Monster: Use ascendancies and/or scion talents in place of feats. The Maze Lord uses up three feats with the scions favored armor (breastplate), force of brawn, and spell reaver." and put it amongst the write ups for natural cunning and earth glide.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Okay I'll ask again.
The Divine Weapon, can someone please provide some clarification as to how this is supposed to work? Should it have an enhancement bonus of some sort? Can it score critical hits? If doing so is it treated like the weapon for which it is being proxied in terms of proficiencies in terms of threat range and multiplier? Is the listed 'base damage' in fact the elemental damage of the weapon?

Ty.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review! I've gone to a policy of not arguing opinions on reviews, but there are some things that seem like factual errors I'd like to clarify.

The 4th tier of the Mystic Inheritance divine trait isn't missing -- the trait does not have (and should not have) a 4th tier. Instead, it allows you to select it multiple times (unlike other divine traits). You can still spend just as many divine ranks in it, you just gain access to multiple connections, to simulate a god's portfolio of powers (which often cover multiple concepts).

Retribution does not allow you to make a "full attack." It allows you to make a single attack, at your full bonus. It is very similar to Hateful Retort from the anger inquisition, except you can use hateful retort in more situations, but retribution more times per day.


Mea Culpa, Owen.
I do my best and reread all pdfs at least twice before I post the reviews, but this one somehow slipped my attention.

Hey no problem! I'd would churlish of me, to say the least, to claim a review should contain no errors, when the review points some at least a few real errors of my product.

Do you plan do change the review at OBS as well? If so I won;t bother commenting on it there. :)

So my group is having some questions about the Godling feats in this one. In the special rules on the feats they state each feat can be taken more than once, but only every three levels. Each time taken they provide an additional 1 of "x". So for instance the Divine Trait one... does it Give 1 rank the first time and then again at 4th can be taken and then would grant 2 ranks? And then 3 ranks at 7th? Another reading was that they could only be taken at 3s so 3rd, 6th, 9th.. etc... And some people thought they only gave "an additional one of..." Can you clarify for us?

Paizo Employee Modules Overlord

If you take the feat once, you get one divine trait rank. The second time you take it, you get one divine trait rank. The third time you take it, you get one divine trait rank, and so on.

I am a little perplexed by the wording of this one. Say I have Mystic Inheritance II arcane. If I decide to branch off and take Mystic Inheritance I in another bloodline...does it cost 1 or 2 ranks? Mystic Inheritance I says "each additional time you take this it costs 1 more rank"...but I'm not sure if that means the cost is supposed to escalate each time.

It would cost 2 ranks. It does, indeed, escalate each time you take it for a new bloodline.


I asked this on another thread, but...
It's intentional for the Immortal Mystery to have just seven revelations, instead of ten? What should the final revelation be?
If I'm a cleric with the Godling Domain, can I use my free minor ascendancy at 1st level to get another domain? Wouldn't this be too powerful?
If a Godling (PrC) chooses the Mystic Inheritance trait, which has not a 4th degree, what can he choose at 10th level? 3rd level degree with another bloodline power, or what?
The Spark of Divinity feat says that you treat your "class" level as your godling level. What if my character is multiclass? Does he use his character level or his level in one class? There are level limits, like with Powerful Lineage?

Yes, it's intentional. Given how many of the revelations can be selected more than once to give you other godling options, I thought it had plenty of variety as written. :D

Bardess wrote:

Now that's a great question, and I'm amazed no one has asked before you did. I guess there just aren't THAT many 20th level campaigns. In any case it'll need to be added to errata, and here it is:

Final Revelation Your divine power has become so advanced that once per day, you can cast miracle. This ability does not require a material component, but the miracle cannot be used to grant ability score bonuses, nor can it be used to replicate spells with expensive material components costing more than 5,000 gp.

If I'm a cleric with the Godling Domain, can I use my free minor ascendancy at 1st level to get another domain? Wouldn't this be too powerful?

If you have selected mighty or clever godling, you'll only get the powers of the domain and not the spells. If you select adept or eldritch godling you'll get the full benefit, but lose out on the synergy of being able to act like an adept or mighty godling divine traits. Further, since the godling domain doesn't grant bonus spells anyway, in playtest we found that in fact this wasn't unbalanced.

If a Godling (PrC) chooses the Mystic Inheritance trait, which has not a 4th degree, what can he choose at 10th level? 3rd level degree with another bloodline power, or what?

Another degree (1st, 2nd or 3rd) with another bloodline power.

The Spark of Divinity feat says that you treat your "class" level as your godling level. What if my character is multiclass? Does he use his character level or his level in one class? There are level limits, like with Powerful Lineage?

That should say character level. I'll put it on my list of errata.
