In these pages you will find aquatic rules for six new races, a new psionic core class (the Aquanaut), new feats, powers, and psionic items, as well as a score of psionic sea monsters to terrorize your undersea denizens.

This book requires Cerulean Seas Campaign Setting (Alluria Publishing) and Psionics Unleashed (Dreamscarred Press) as it masterfully builds upon both rule sets.

Any chance of this going POD like the campaign book on rpgnow.com?

It was sent to the printing department for approval yesterday. We should hear back soon. It could be available as early as mid-September.


I cant wait, I love psionic and CS is diffidently my cup of tea!


I'd love to have this AND the original Cerulean Seas setting in print. I have CS on pdf, but I greatly prefer a hard copy when it comes to reading. I read there aren't any more of those to be had, though.

PoD Cerulean Seas

I have a hardcopy and it's pretty nice, although it's a little bit higher than my other hardcovers.


Ohhh Myyy.....

Thanks!!!!


See this is why there should be a Alluria facebook page. I just found out this was out today. I had money on the 27th, but now I have to wait until October to get this. Oh well, I guess I'll just have a lot of awesome next month.

Or you could have joined in the kickstart and they just send you a email with your copy to you. :)

Twas planning upon contributing generously, but alas the funds I was expecting did not arrive in time.

Understandable that happens to me often on kickstarts, in fact this was the only kick start to date I managed to get the funds together and get involved in before it ran out of time.


Print version of Waves of Thought, now available at RPGnow.com!

Andoran

Bought it, love it, sweet!!!


Reviewed here, on DTRPG, sent to GMS magazine, posted about it on Lou Agresta's RPGaggression and submitted it to NERD TREK. Cheers!


@Endzeitgeist: I think there's some text missing from the end of your review.

Regarding this product, as I mention in my review, I'm not the biggest psionics fan, and this product really sold me on them. If you've ever played games like EVO: The Search for Eden or Aquaria, the class with evolving features fills the niche of these games perfectly.

Thanks for drawing my attention to this, Caedwyr! Here's the missing conclusion to my review.

I forgot my verdict. It should come as no surprise: This book is a must for fans of psionics, of the Cerulean Seas setting and all those who felt even remotely intrigued by what I described here. This pdf is worth every cent of its asking price and I hope there'll be a print option. Final verdict: 5 stars + endzeitgeist seal of approval. Congratulations for the triumphant return -it comes with a bang!

Thank you for reading my ramblings!


Regarding the print option, it appears there's a print option at RPGnow.com. I'm not sure if it is a POD or regular printing version.


I haven't picked this up because we generally don't play with Psionics and in particular I don't. Nice review though. Almost tempting to pick it up for completeness sake.

On a related note I just checked Alluria's website and they show the next four releases as:

Indigo Ice: Undersea Arctic Adventure Guide

The Azure Abyss: Guide to the Underdeep

Here There Be Dragons: An Undersea Bestiary

The Cobalt Compass: Atlas of the Cerulean Seas

If they maintain their quality like they have been, and no reason to expect that they won't, the next four items look fantastic.


Outstanding review End! And here I thought I was looking forward to getting my hands on this book before, lol...

Me too. Particularly about the bestiary and atlas. I'm a sucker for bestiaries, and I've been really curious as to just how big the Cerulean Seas region is.


@Steven o'neal: Now that you've picked this up, what are your thoughts? I approached it from a "don't know much or have a lot of experience with psionics" angle, and loved it (although I'm still not a huge fan of all the psionic version of normal spells work).

It's an excellent product. The artwork is fantastic, the writing lives up to the high standard set by the Cerulean Seas campaign setting, and the mechanics appear to be balanced against the other psionic classes as well as the core classes. My only criticisms of it are minor. Firstly, there were a couple formatting errors in the pdf, notably the lack of the anthromorph racial trait in the Zef writeup, and the racial buoyancy and depth tolerance for the Apsara stat block. Both I've already notified the publisher about. Secondly, the Aquanaut class isn't clear about whether you retain subtypes for the purposes of prerequisites. It's a very minor issue for me. All things considered, I give it a solid A+. I'm not-so patiently awaiting future products.


Indigo Ice is available! It is on RPGnow.com and will be on Paizo shortly....


So what is the deal with getting this as a POD?


Bump.

Paizo Employee Webstore Gninja Minion

I've sent an email to the publisher asking about print products on Paizo.com.


So, is Paizo planning on offering Print on Demand (POD) for this and other books?

Paizo Employee Webstore Gninja Minion

Paizo does not do print on demand. In order to get this product available in print through Paizo.com, the publisher must provide a print consignment stock for us to sell (which is what I'm trying to work out with the publisher).


Okay, that's what I thought. I guess I can dream that Paizo might be able to offer POD at some point in the future :). I appreciate your efforts.

Believe me, I'd love to be able to offer a print-on-demand service for our third-party publishers. ^_^


Any news, Liz?

No—whether or not a consignor decides to sell their product on our website is ultimately up to them.


A spectacular honor! Cerulean Seas Waves of Thought was in Pathways/Endzeitgiest's top 10 list of 2012, You can pick up your free copy of Pathways at the link provided here:
Pathways #23

As for the print issues, we are waiting until we have the funds to print enough copies for consignment. As soon as we do, they will be here :)

Woooohooo! And congratulations on a well-deserved place in my top-10: Waves of Thought is great! (And my review of Indigo Ice is almost done as well!)

Silver Crusade

I should pick up a copy of Cerulean Seas: Waves of Thought when I have the money. It would probably expand my own campaign.

After all, my own campaign is set in a Psionic City. :D


Even beyond the water, several of the contents in this book can be reappropriated, so yeah, I think you should get it. But probably after the setting: This book blends the mechanics introduced in the setting with DSP's psionics, so if you have both, you'll get most out of it!


I know Waves of Thought doesn't cover the latest Dreamscarred Press psionic releases but I have to ask...

What do you think is the bouyancy of Aegis armor suits? And do they continue to use the surface armors or do they convert to Cerulean Seas equivalents?


Can I use it without the original cerulean seas? I want to mine it for psi stuff.


If you are looking for on-land uses of psionics, then yes it should work fairly well. There are some mechanics for underwater uses of certain abilities, but the system appears to have been written so uses that don't depend on being underwater are directly translatable.


Finally picked this up. While excellent, the crowning achievement of the book, the aquanaut, has three main problems.
1st, too many dead levels for a non-full caster.

2nd, the pp boost of mutations are too expensive. 10 pp is the equivalent of a 5th level power plus 1 pp, and for the reach mutation it nets you 5ft more reach for 1 atk... and so on.

3rd, and worst of all, no capstone? All cerulian seas bas classes hve one, except for the poor aquanaut.

I think this can be improved, or "fixed". I mean, you could take some levels and forget about itwith a PrC, since you dont really lose that much.
