Speaking of the art, did anyone else get the feeling there was a bit more reused material than normal? It felt like almost 1/3 of the pictures were taken out of previous products. I don't know if this is standard procedure that I didn't notice before, the result of a larger than normal amount of images, or just random luck of what pages I flipped to, but it certainly stuck out at me.


On artwork...:
If halflings couldn't or wouldn't wear anything on their feet, they would miss out on awesome gear like boots of teleportation. Maybe some of them have tender feet? I personally hate *not* wearing shoes.

As to the art quality... I like it well enough. I admit that what got me to even look into Pathfinder in the first place was the artwork. Specifically images like these:

Orcs at the gates...

Ghost and throne of bones...

Cleric martyrs...

Of course Reynold's iconics (Seelah's not-bikini armor was a huge sell), and stylized though it may be, I love this person's art as well. I LOVE good artwork in my games, but my taste in art may not suit someone else. I recognize that. I would like to see more artwork like what the company started with, but that may not be something they can really control. If an artist doesn't have time or isn't interested in a commission, then they find someone who can/will do it or the art doesn't get done.

So far, I don't think they have really crapped out, even if some of the art has fallen a bit further from the 'standard.'

Why Aasimars can fly on their own wings and Tieflings can not?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I interpret it as Tieflings retaining the BoF 'their own blood works against them' ensuring that their wings are broken and torn. That said, I really wish they also had actual flying options :(

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32, 2010 Top 8

@Bardess
Two theories.
Asthetics

Spoiler:
Since celestials are from 'higher' planes and fiends from 'lower' it was decided to just have the aasimar get wings. Clearly you can 'reskin' the feat for flying tieflings in a home game.

Editing
Spoiler:
One of the (many!) complaints about the (in)Complete Psionic was the padding of racial feats. Extra maenad power, extra half giant power extra dromite power, etc etc when a simple "Extra Racial Power: You can use your racial power an additional 3 times a day." would have done the same job, but then they might have had to have actual content in its place. IT could be that TPTB decided "Let's not pad the book with Tiefling wings, Aasimar wings, Slyph wings, etc. We'll make Aasimar wings, and figure people will reskin as needed."

I love the book ... I knew I would.

But PURPLE DROW? Seriously?!!! WTF?!!

I mean, as a freelance artist, I know that sometimes an artist has to make choices in order to make highlights show up. But, in the past 10 years or so, this has become increasingly common to the point that they are actually painted in pruple. Not ebon with highlights, their actual skin tone is entirely purple.

And that has led to players assuming that is a correct skin tone, not just a artist's poor colour choices. Which has in turn - apparently - led publishers to actually writing in PURPLE as part of their physical description. I swear, if I ever see a player at a table with a PURPLE DROW, I will mock them relentlessly, all the while calling them n00bcakes.

If you didn't get a tone of silly-rant out of this, go back and try again. I wouldn't actually troll someone into oblivion for it, but, I would point it out to them.

I noticed the same thing. It's good art, but I wouldn't want to see the trend continue/expand.

I like purple elves better, but then, I prefer the WoW elf-dichotomy much better than the norm. Night elves are one of my favorite fantasy races, even if the writing for them is leagues beneath what it could be. Drow are too alien... too 'eeeebil.' For me anyway. Could be the whole "half the species is kept in bondage and traded like children's toys" that puts me off.

Of course Drizzt clones don't help, either.


What is the book is good stuff, but I was a bit disappointed there were not any trapfinding archetypes, unless I messed them.

Something like the Divine Disarmer: a halfling based Inquisitor archetype would have been cool.

I like the purple myself. Gets rids of the kind of uncomfortable connotations that good elves = white, bad elves = black, that comes from the original depictions.

Purple/black is better than black/black?

Honestly, I've always preferred EQ's Dark Elves to DnD's. Drow worshiping the god of hate always seemed far more intimidating than the self destructive spider worshipers.

Plus the dudes had some awesome facial hair.


MMCJawa wrote:

That stupidity is something that was unfortunately greatly reinforced in D&D 4E with an epic destiny for Drow whose final reward was being reborn as a white-skinned elf (seriously? Others become gods and you finally manage to "redeem" the skin colour you were born with? I never had problems with their black skin, which could be because my first contact with D&D Drow was in Baldur's Gate II. :D Having some moron claim that a Drow's skin colour comes from the blackness of their heart oozing through the skin instantly makes you take their side.

I don't like the purple/blue skin Drow with white eyes either. Don't get me wrong, WarCraft Night Elves were awesome before WoW ruined them, but that's because they are Night Elves, not Drow. Completely different mythology, possible dark troll ancestry etc.
I would really love to see more good artworks with black skin and red eyes and with decent adventuring equipment instead of bondage gear. :(

Personally one of the things I liked about (3e) Elistraee and Vhelronn (however you spell his name) was that they gave other options for drow than 'hopelessly evil bastards' and 'lone scimitar weilding renegades'.

(Plus, I like the contrast of black and silver.)

Golarion Drow have been black through purple/blue since Second Darkness.

SD spoiler

Spoiler:
It also seems to be that it's not just being evil that can make an elf become drow, but also contact with demonic forces. And since they aren't native to Golarion, I like the idea that it's the world and the demonic influence that make them drow.


I would like to ask a few things

1. Is there a link to the homebrew races for the ARG because my other thread went unanswered?

2. Is there a way that someone from Paizo could try and make a video or maybe step by step QnA for the ARG?

3. Is there a way to create your own racial traits and if there isn't has anyone else decided to try and do so? It would really help us GM's out who are trying to create more awesome races and are pretty limited.


Can't you slap on feats that the race can't change and effectively make a race from feats?

I mean, I can't do a lot of my cool things that my races from the play test could do in a heart beat but I'm honestly struggling with recreating most if not all of my races based on the new ARG rules...


Also, is there a way that you can purchase a feat for a race without it needing the pre reqs? If so, then most of my problems should be able to be done by effectively using that feat thing. If I can ignore Lunges pre reqs of BAB +6 if I spend an extra 2 rp to make it 4 I'd be perfectly content.

Games Workshop has had blue/purple/whatever color Chaos tainted them with Dark Elves forever. I, personally, have no issue with it. Makes for more interesting painting options.

I have barely looked through the book, but (So far) the only issues that bum me out is such 'new' races as Gillmen and Oreads have proper write-ups, yet classic 'alternative PCs' from back-in-the-day (Lizardmen, Gnolls) get a footnote entry as example races.

Oh, and Kobolds still aren't up to speed.Really, their stats just suck...

Kind of wish they had just gone with a 0 hd option for lizardfolk and Gnolls, back when they released the first bestiary.

The fact that they did that probably has to do with the fact that kobolds are a monster race, instead of a PC race.

I believe the frustration of Uriel393 comes from the idea that there are in fact some people that like the idea of playing some of these lesser appreciated monster races, and would appreciate it if they seemed more viable. I mean, gnomes and half-orcs work right?

Also they probably didn't want the core rulebook line to contradict itself by drastically changing the base starting package. And having options that are obviously more powerful is, well, lame.

After all, this is what the Race Building section is for. Beef up your kobolds!

I think this is pretty well best said here.

I know no one wants to here the Rule Zero line, but putting together a book like this cannot be done without making some races look really, really bad without contradicting the pre-existing rules. I'm sure the developers know you want to be able play certain races, but they still have to work within the rules. As a very occasional freelance designer, I can say with absolutely certainty that you sometimes have to make design choices you don't like because you have to work with the framework that's already been established.

EDIT: Unrelated to the rest of this post, I would seriously like to know the pricing on the Dwarves' 'never slow down' movement ability. I cannot seem to locate it within the book, and it's certainly not included in their cost breakdown. I'd be inclined to put that at a 2 RP ability, but I can't find any example to back that idea up (and all we need is the dwarves' getting tossed another 2 RP to make people complain about it).

RE-EDIT: OK, don't know how I missed that under slow speed more than once. That said, I'd still like to see it priced as a separate ability, to be put on other, non-Medium sized races.

Quote:
BTW, since dwarves cost more RP than a human does, and almost as much as a tiefling, does this mean that they're up there for level adjustment characters? That we should go by the chart of them being more than 10 RP so they should be considered a +1?

1) Tielfings don't have level adjustments, they're just like Humans in terms of being a 'PC race'.

2) *NO* race has a level adustment. The concept doesn't exist in PRPG.
The racebuilding section goes into how to deal with mixing low and high RP races within the same game (when you are aiming for parity between them), and basically it comes down to giving more 'bonus abilities' to the lower RP races to bring them up to par, basically making 'super humans, halflings, etc'.

[boilerplate disclaimer text]Haven't read the entire thread, so apologies if this has been mentioned already...[/disclaimer]

The Kobold alternate racial trait Gliding Wings on p. 133 replaces Crafty. The Draconic Glide feat on p. 136 assumes that it replaced the Fast movement trait instead.

Draconic Breath feat on p. 136 mentions that Kobold sorcerers with the appropriate bloodlines can use their Cha modifier instead of their Con modifier to determine the number of times per day they can use the breath weapon, but the feat text says that the breath weapon is only usable once / day.

.

I'm only up to Orcs, so far, but I'm *loving* some of the new alternate racial favored class bonuses. The Orc Druid bonus (+1/2 to natural attack damage for your animal companion), the Elven Summoner bonus (-1 round to summon eidolon, to a minimum of 1 round), the Dwarf Monk bonus (-1 hardness to metal, clay or stone items struck with unarmed attacks), the Half-Elf Alchemist bonus (+1 ft./level splash radius to bombs), etc. sound fun.

This is something a number of the race entries were really hurting for lacking IMO. In fact, the lead-in to the second chapter pretty much offerse "lone renegade" as the only idea to work with for those races. It's not a big deal where the individual race entries offer a range of possibilities, and many of them do, but when they don't...

Yeah, I had brought up the Kobold issues earlier. Just seems like there is some poor editing of things cut from the book which left other parts hanging in the wind.

Random art thoughts;

*Loving* the new hobgoblin look on p. 121 and especially p. 122! Such an improvement!

Also loving the horned dark-handed Aasimar on p. 87 and both of the Fetchling pictures!

The Ifrit on p. 129 remains one of the coolest (hottest?) pictures. Very nice.

The female Orc on p. 140 is funky. Those tusks she's wearing look awesome!

The Oread Summoner on p. 148 is very cool. More Summoner-friendly art, I'm seeing (that, the half-orc summoner on p. 54, or the Fetchling using a summoning spell on p. 112).

Both of the Ratfolk are excellent. I love that the little guy with the crossbow is chewing a bit of grass! Such an odd detail!

The Tiefling on p. 172 is very hot, yanno, for a red-skinned devil-spawned chick with horns and hooves and a gigantic holy symbol of Sarenrae totally covering her jumblies...

Very interesting take on the Undines. I like the female better, but still, both are neat.

The Kitsune on p. 192 is in a very dynamic action pose, and that's cooler than having her just sort of standing there.

The Ogre in platemail on 229 is scary. Yikes.

The human spellcaster on p. 240 is distinctive, and I love the (hobgoblin?) pirate on 244 and the tengu with the awesome hat on 246. I have no idea what the dude on 247 is, but he looks badass!

The only bit of recycled art (that I recognized as such) I would have preferred not being used was the Halfling from 'Accelerated Drinker.' The art from Big Little Folk 'o Golarion may have been a bit cleaner / simpler style (more comic-book-ish, perhaps, with the sharper outlines), but I liked it better (particular the slinger on p. 22) than Potion Tosser Lad.

I loved that the dwarf with the war-boar from Seeker of Secrets made it to the Dwarf cover page. Outside of WAR's Harsk pictures, that's one of my favorite dwarven pictures. (Indeed, given how awesome the art in Seeker of Secrets was, I'm surprised that the little guy from p. 59 didn't score the Gnome cover page!)

The Ironskin monk is, as the name says, a monk based on shrugging off attacks. Rather than focusing on mobility, they focus on ... tanking, almost. It replaces the Wisdom to AC and the AC bonus, but unfortunately (for the platemail idea at least) still loses Flurry of Blows and Fast Movement if he wears armor.


Hi, quick question.

I was under the impression that the Advanced Races Guide was similar to the Advanced Players Guide - i.e. adding more variety to the core game but which could ultimately stand on its own.

I've been reading some threads where the posters are posting races that state that they get abilities from Ultimate Magic or Ultimate Combat.

As someone who's only bought the 'core' set of Pathfinder books (Core Rulebook, GM Guide and Bestiary I), how critical are UC and UM to being able to fully utilise the ARG?

"Not important at all." The book reprints some material from APG and Golarion-specific sources, but nothing has jumped out as requiring UC or UM (except perhaps a small number of Magus and Gunslinger archetypes). There may also be references to UM or UC feats or spells, though I haven't noticed any specifically. If it does come up, you can check the PRD or d20pfsrd for any material that needs referencing. But again, the vast majority of the book can be used as-is in combination with the core rules and APG, without even acknowledging the existence of UC or UM.

Actually the only thing he should lose from the armor would be Resilience (Evasion for Fort saves). Tough as Nails replaces Fast Movement so no worries there. I don't see any thing in flurry of blows that says you lose it in armor, am I missing something?

Flurry of Blows:
PRD wrote:

Flurry of Blows (Ex): Starting at 1st level, a monk can make a flurry of blows as a full-attack action. When doing so he may make one additional attack using any combination of unarmed strikes or attacks with a special monk weapon (kama, nunchaku, quarterstaff, sai, shuriken, and siangham) as if using the Two-Weapon Fighting feat (even if the monk does not meet the prerequisites for the feat). For the purpose of these attacks, the monk's base attack bonus from his monk class levels is equal to his monk level. For all other purposes, such as qualifying for a feat or a prestige class, the monk uses his normal base attack bonus.

At 8th level, the monk can make two additional attacks when he uses flurry of blows, as if using Improved Two-Weapon Fighting (even if the monk does not meet the prerequisites for the feat).

At 15th level, the monk can make three additional attacks using flurry of blows, as if using Greater Two-Weapon Fighting (even if the monk does not meet the prerequisites for the feat).

A monk applies his full Strength bonus to his damage rolls for all successful attacks made with flurry of blows, whether the attacks are made with an off-hand or with a weapon wielded in both hands. A monk may substitute disarm, sunder, and trip combat maneuvers for unarmed attacks as part of a flurry of blows. A monk cannot use any weapon other than an unarmed strike or a special monk weapon as part of a flurry of blows. A monk with natural weapons cannot use such weapons as part of a flurry of blows, nor can he make natural attacks in addition to his flurry of blows attacks.

EDIT: Added the bit about Tough as Nails.
