I think this book is pretty sweet, I've never been a fan of the gnomes..but combine them with of race of evil stingrays...I'm sold.
Plus there was some beautiful flavour text for the Night haunt (inquisitor archetype): "We are almost legendary figures, our cowled shadows
prowling through the night, preying upon criminal
parasites like the undead creatures whose name we
have adopted, we are the night haunts."
After reading that i just pictured a lurker batman figure.
Good work Rite, and i hope to see some more races and racial classes..next hopefully it could be reptilian *wink,wink.
I have a quick question regarding the Lurkers ability to Fly. The Lurker Flight Feat list the Prerequisites as, "Lurker, Fly 5 ranks, Dex 13." However, earlier in the Alternative Lurker Racial Traits sections you list,
"Medium and Normal speed: Some Lurkers heritage
gravitates toward the larger size of their cloaker parent
that the smaller nature of their gnomish ancestry. These
lurkers are Medium creatures and have no bonuses or
penalties due to their size. They have a base speed of 30
feet. This trait replaces their small and slow speed racial
trait (hence they don’t’ gain their flight ability upon
gaining 5 Hit Dice)."
Which has left me to wonder should the Prerequisites for the Lurker Flight be, "Lurker, Small Size, 5HD, Dex 13," and not the prerequisites listed above. Any clarification would be Awesome!
Thanks in Advance!
Going back and looking at it closely this is a revision issue in the original version small lurkers could fly automatically once gaining 5 HD, this was changed after play-testing to a feat.
this line should have been cut.
"(hence they don’t’ gain their flight ability upon
gaining 5 Hit Dice)."
The feat should read
Lurker Flight (Lurker)
Prerequisites: Lurker, Fly 5 ranks, Dex 13
Benefits: You gain a supernatural fly speed of 20 feet if Small or 30 feet if Medium (poor maneuverability) and can even fly when carrying a
heavy load. When you take this feat you gain Fly as a class skill.
Once again, I love this good and the race within it. Just a quick clarification question for the racial exemplar feat, when it says cannot take ability adjustment racial traits, that is referring to racial traits that adjust ability score correct?
Also any new plans for more in the company of...I Love both the races ones like this and races with paragon classes. Here hoping for in the company of outsiders or undead. Either way keep up the great work guys.
I have slowly been working on In The Company of Blinklings (a divine merging of halfling and blink dogs), and Wretches (half hag/half orc)
We are also working on a sequal to In the Company of Dragons (The Lost Isles), and we have discussed something like Angels, Fiends but nothing more than discussions.
