Constructs and shadow magic in the same product? faints

Who wrote the Shadowsworn?

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Quarterly

I wrote the shadowsworn in the second Kobold Press book ever, a module called Castle Shadowcrag. That was in the 3.5 D&D era, and the shadowsworn never got a wide distribution because the book went out of print quickly.

Christina Stiles converted it to Pathfinder RPG, and Spike Jones did a superb job editing and refining it.

I'm pretty happy with the fact that the shadowsworn is now back in the light. They were a major set of villains for the Midgard campaign, and they are fun as dark heroes, too.

Awesome! I look forward to reading through it and the rest of the book.


Holy smokes, this is chock full o' awesome!

I want to play a griffon knight! And a shadowsworn!

Where can I find the griffon companion template for starting with one at first level? Is it in another publication?


Ghoul bloodline is one of my favorites!

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Quarterly

Cool, first review is short and sweet.

Thanks for rating it, Mead!


No prob. :)


This...looks...epic! I knew the Clockwork magic thing was going to be cool, but SHADOW MAGIC, Paladin options, AND a playable undead-type race!? If only there was a print version coming out!

Not just playable undead race, but two bloodlines descended from undead (Ghoul and Vampire).

Dhampir Vampiric Sorcerer is full of win!

Now that you mention it, dhampir vampiric sorcerer is rather completely awesome. Hm, you may have talked me into making one a villain in an upcoming adventure.

Yay!

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Quarterly

Thank you for the review, Oceanshieldwolf, and I'm glad you like the book.

To respond to your question about the Shadowsworn, it's hear because the school of Star & Shadow magic is a very Crossroads sort of school. Also, because the Shadowsworn class was a plot point in some Zobeck adventures, and is associated with House Stross.

Not sure that those story elements are in the crunchy writeup, but there's the story-behind-the-story!

Just got Dragon Empires.... Mharoti rugmakers are real jerks. So far I like that PG, but those rugs stand out the most to me.

Oh, and Mead - glad you like the Dragon Empires players guide! Is it available here on Paizo.com yet?

A few questions:
Where can I find rules for a griffon mount?
What does an Order of the Undying Sun Paladin lose?
Why do the Order of the Undying Sun and the Order of the White Lion grant Celestial and Divine bonuses instead of a sacred bonus?

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Quarterly

Griffon mount is mentioned in the Midgard Campaign setting section mounts (see Trombei). Is there something else you are looking for?

Order of the Undying Sun paladin loses Divine Bond to gain the archetype. This correction was made in the current version of the file here at Paizo, I believe, so you might want to download the latest version.

Dunno why those two bonuses are typed strangely. Sacred bonus seems like it would cover those cases.

Thanks for the answers. I ordered the pdf at another side that allowed me to use Paypal.

Concerning the Griffon knights, they have to use a griffon mount, but there are no rules for a griffon as a cavaliers mount, aside from using the monster stats from the Bestiary.

And will there a PoD option for this and further Player's Guides?

Speaking of, I noticed the one at DTRPG wasn't updated, it still doesn't have that update.

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Quarterly

Ok, I did go to check DTRPG, and the update showing the loss of Divine Bond is in the copy I downloaded. It's the second paragraph on page 15.

Cheliax

I rechecked and the text shows up normal in Acrobat Reader, but PDF-X-Change Viewer only shows cryptic symbols.

Aside from divine and celestial bonuses, there are also equipment and synergy bonuses mentioned in the text. The Player's Guide to the Dragon Empire also contains an Arcane Bonus.

I like the player's guided, but they could certainly use better editing as there are several other errors and oddities.

Also, when will the Player's Guided to the Wasted West and the Seven Cities be published? The Campaign Setting lists them as available.


What is the Shadowsworn's starting gold? Can't find it...<adjusts coke-bottle lens glasses>

As per rogue.

Wasted West is likely January, and Seven Cities in February. I switched up the order of release to put Crossroads first (as the center of the setting). But those two are edited and heading into layout.


Kk, I will redownload from DTRPG. I thought I did, but maybe I screwed something up. lol

Can't wait for the next two.

He he he....as usual, the evil "jerk" stuff is mine...what, you expected the Mharoti dragons to just GIVE their hoards away....? They expect a little entertainment before dinner - like incautious adventurers getting teleported into the hungry wyvern pit.... >:>

And yowza, I think this makes 5 weeks for Crossroads at the top of the Download chart.

To celebrate, I've uploaded some clarifications, responses to questions on this thread, and even some full-bore errata (to bonus types) with a new PDF. I suspect the revised file will go live here on Monday.

Cheliax

That's great to hear. Will the pdf also be updated on other sites?

I have an additional question about the Undying Sun paladin: Can the light be turned off or is it always on?


Just posted a review. Hope it does some good.

Yes, updated PDF now live on DriveThru and RPGnow as well.

At my home table, the light can be turned down to candlelight but never off. YMMV.

Cheliax

I think I'll go with that when I propose this archetype for the Paladin of Sarenrae in our Carrion Crown game.

I greatly appreciate that. Having up-to-date products is a Good Thing.


Wolfgang, is the Crossroads PDF updated on the Kobold Store? That is where I originally bought it from.

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press, RPG Superstar Judge

As they say, the cobbler's children have no shoes.

I regret that I have not yet updated the file on the Kobold Store, but that is on my to-do list for tonight. Please wait about 12 hours and the new PDF will be live there as well for re-download.


Updated on Kobold Store yet?


Ya, I too am somewhat confused how the Griffon mount is supposed to work. Just use the Griffon stats right out the Bestiary? That is pretty strong for first level.

Yep, last night. Kobold store is not equipped with a fancy automatic notification system, more's the pity, but if you download it again, it's the new version.

Griffon mount is one of the elements detailed in the new version. It's not a griffon from the Bestiary at 1st level.


Thanks, Wolfgang. I used my credit form my Kobold Quarterly subscription to buy this and a few more. Decided to keep the money in the "Family"


*Goes back to revise his review-draft and deletes a paragraph of balance-b$+~~ing* :D

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Whew, got that update out just in the nick of time. :)


Maybe I am missing something but I see no difference between the PDF I downloaded a week ago and one I downloaded from the Kobold Store just a few minutes ago.


I've also re-downloaded from the Kobold Store, where I purchased, and it doesn't seem to be a new version (unless I'm missing something).

I'll ping Wolfgang, guys.

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Huh, we're talking about the Kobold Store on the Paizo boards. Ok. I hope the Paizo folks don't mind.

I'm staring at the file download with the V2 on the end of the filename. I open the file from the store, I go to page 14, and there's the new text for the griffon mount. So clearly the new file is up on the store.

Did you get the V2 version when you re-downloaded? Or is the store still offering the old file? I'm not sure where this is going wrong.

Andoran

Technical difficulties are fun ;)
