Embrace the Fey

All the trickery and wild power of the fey are yours to command with Pathfinder Player Companion: Legacy of the First World. Let the wilderness inspire your heroes with a spectrum of new ways to play fey-touched characters, along with new powers for classes seeking to strengthen their bonds with nature. Choose whether you draw your might from the vitality of the land, the brutality of vicious beasts, or even your faith in the fey realm's inscrutable masters, the Eldest.

Inside this book, you'll find:

  • Character options for worshipers of the enigmatic Eldest, allowing members of all classes to manifest their god's influence in unexpected ways.
  • New racial options for both gnomes and gathlains, two player-character races closely tied to the First World.
  • A host of new archetypes, feats, magic items, spells, and other fey-inspired character options!

This Pathfinder Player companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but it can easily be incorporated into any fantasy world.

Same, it was easy to skip the last two player companions but this one I'm buying ASAP.


I just want to mention what a (pleasant) surprise it is to see rules support for Bleachling Gnomes.

Is there a feat fey version of the Dragon Heritage feat? That's all I really want to know. =)

Until we have more and better fey playable races, a "fey heritage feat" would be really useful.

(still praying to see a medium fairy-like playable fey race)

Nope. No fey version of Draconic Heritage. Sorry. :(

Okay, back, had fun, and before I go to bed I'll tackle a few.

Plausible Pseudonym wrote:

For anyone with a pdf and time I'd be interested in hearing about:

1. The Sorrow Psychic discipline
2. Centered Spell metamagic
3. The Threefold spells
4. The Temporal spells

Psychic Discipline:
So, basically, you get your powers from isolation, despair, and generally being unhappy. You use Charisma for your phrenic pool, get the ability to add up to your level Charisma modifier against mind-affecting effects, and can weaponize your misery as an immediate action when an enemy is making certain kinds of rolls to penalize said roll (no save) a decent number of times per day. At higher levels you can spend a use of it as a standard action to give everyone nearby that penalty for a few rounds, but they do get a save for that one. And then finally you can create your fortress of despair ala a permanent albeit gloomy demiplane.

Centered Spell:
Basically you can drop an area effect instantaneous spell with you as the center and exclude yourself (and your familiar if in your square and smaller than you) from the effect; does not increase spell level.

Threefold Spells:
Threefold face gives you two extra faces, each one symbolizing some emotion or aspect of your personality. You gain all-around vision, can't be flanked, and various effects that would target your face (such as being blinded or deafened) only affect a single face, though you lose all-around vision if a face is blinded. It lasts for exactly nine minutes.

Threefold form splits you up into three of you, it basically acts like a combination of bilocation and threefold aspect, each at a different age.

Threefold sight lets you roll three d20s when performing certain kinds of rolls and pick the middle result (ie, excluding the highest and the lowest results; what happens if you get identical rolls is also covered.

Temporal Spells:
Temporal divergence is pretty complicated but basically it lets you cast two different spells, treating each as if you had cast it and not the other one, see all the repercussions (did it beat spell resistance, did the monster make its save, blah blah blah) and then choose which one of the spells you actually cast. Casting it more than once in 24 hours has a risk of bad things happening to you.

Temporal regression lets you create something like a very short-lived save point, you don't exactly time travel but you to return yourself to the exact state and location you were in when you cast it, minus expended spells and such. Doing so gives you negative levels.

Archmage Variel wrote:
What can you say about the chronomancer?

Chronomancer:
You trade out your arcane bond and bonus feats from 10th, 15th, and 20th for a reservoir of temporal energy they can spend for various effects; boosting initiative, saving throws,

avoiding losing spells that had no effect, attaching extra spells to contingency, and briefly summoning a parallel universe version of yourself to fight on after you die.

Dragon78 wrote:

What is the sorcerer and bloodrager bloodline like?

What is the new oracle mystery and curses like?

What do the gathlain's feats and alternate racial traits do?

Bloodlines:
So, bloodrager gets some stuff related to Aspect of the Beast, swift action self-only transmutation when entering bloodrage, DR silver, free action dispel on yourself when leaving bloodrage, and finish off with greater polymorph at-will and immunity to transmutation effects you're not willing to accept for a capstone.

Sorcerer can do more damage with unarmed strikes or claws, extend the duration of polymorph spells affecting yourself, assault people with sudden fleshy tentacle explosion, getting rider effects on polymorph spells affecting yourself and immunity to non-willing polymorph effects, and capstone is immunity to critical hits and sneak attacks, blindsight, DR, and if you get physically blinded or deafened you just grow some new sensory organs.

Oracle Mystery and Oracle Curses:
So, the whimsy mystery gains power from fey tricksters. You can pick up stuff like illusions, shapeshifting, rods of wonder effects, using Perform (comedy) to bluff and intimidate, and other such things.

The pranked curse means fey are always playing pranks on you, making inappropriate sounds and smells, imitating your voice to f#&& with people, etc. You also take a penalty to initiative checks and have trouble recovering what you want to from your gear. You get some bonus spells. Possessed oracles can choose to take this instead of cursed.

The reclusive curse means you have trouble trusting anyone, and allies who hit you with touch spells have to make a successful touch attack and you have to attempt to save against all spells that you don't cast. You get bonuses when casting spells that affect only yourself, become immune to charm spells, and eventually gain spell resistance.

Gathlains:
...okay, that's a lot, so...in brief...

Body thorns means you have masterwork armor spikes if not wearing armor or bulky clothing; if sundered they grow back. Replaces spell-like ability.

Bower born means that you get a +2 bonus on Diplomacy and Handle Animal thanks to pheromones. Replaces natural armor.

Photosynthetic vision gives you a +2 bonus to Perception. Replaces low-light vision.

Sticky tendrils gives you nonmagical spider climb and feather fall and some limited gliding. Replaces fly speed.

Symbiotic imbalance increases fly speed at the cost of land speed.

Biological Lattice lets you store something in your vines. While in your vines you can't fly. You can get it back as a swift action, or drop it as a free action.

Hydroponic Adaptation lets you swap out your fly speed for a swim speed 1/day for an hour or until you end it early.

Step of the Flighty Fey gives creatures under the effect of your feather step spell-like ability small amounts of DR cold iron that scales a bit.

Strange Yield lets you take a fruit from yourself that has the effect of a random 1st-level potion or oil, which loses its power after 24 hours.

Eric Hinkle wrote:
May we please get some information on the 'Embrace the Dark Fey' feat? And the 'Seducer' archetype and hex for the witch?

Embrace the Dark Fey:
You are descended from an evil fey. You get a bonus on using Intimidate and confirming critical hits. If you demoralize an appropriate number of creatures, you can deal bleed damage to creatures you have demoralized.

Seducer:
The seducer witch has to choose from a small pool of patrons, uses Charisma instead of Intelligence for witch class features, and generally gains bonuses against people who find them sexy which increase when they've slept with said people within the past day. Loses hexes at 1st, 6th, and 8th level.

The seduction hex lets you fascinate a target for a round by using 'enthralling movements', which I presume means booty-shaking, which you can extend up to your level rounds by continuing to shake it. Will save negates, but the DC goes up if they think you're sexy. At higher levels it lasts a bit longer.


What does the Hooded Knight get?

This book is very cool. My favorite are the shadow slayer archetype (forgot the exact name) and the twin summoner archetype.


Yey monk stuff!

Does the archie work with Unchained Monk?

Any other monk options?

Hooded Knight:
Swap out Climb and Swim for Knowledge (geography) and Survival. Their mount gets the feybound template except that it can't use change shape while you're riding it. Trades out tactician for some bonuses while on a road, any mount you're riding gets an increase to speed and you can spend some time with your allies' mounts to grant them the same speed boost for awhile, and you can hustle safely for awhile. Trades out greater tactician for dimension door except that if riding their mount it doesn't count against the number of creatures that you can take with you, and if the end point isn't a road you get shunted to the nearest place that is a road as if you had tried to arrive in a place already occupied by a solid body; starts off 1/day but get additional uses as you level up. And trades out master tactician for the above ability except with greater teleport and your allies' mounts also don't count against the number of teleported creatures.

Unfortunately it seems to only work with the base monk. And I believe I listed everything else already...nothing else for monk.

Wow, this is amazing.

Spoiler:
Sorcerers get what is now my favorite bloodline, allowing them to really boost their shapeshifting. Absolutely love it- this'll get me to play a sorc again after being drawn away by psychic.

Barbarians get some mighty fine caster hate with a grapple that prevents speaking.

Summoners get a really neat twin archetype, which includes its own eidolon subtype. (For those of you still using the old Summoner, it works with that.)

Two new oracle curses, both of which are cool, a new mystery, and a new archetype. The mystery is really cool, without relying on charisma substitution like a lot of mysteries.

Psychic gets a really flavorful discipline.

Slayer gets an awesome archetype centered around Mirror Image and making the images do other things.

Bard gets an archetype that can grant fey abilities with their bard song, like swift action invisibility. Rogues will want to be friends.

Skald gets an archetype with limited wildshape.

Alchemist gets a cool random results archetype that trades some of your bombs rather than all of them.

Rogue gets an archetype with darkvision and standard action teleportation from a movement pool. No shadow-to-shadow requirements.

All around really good feats, story feats, and traits. (Teamwork feats were the only area that didn't have something that stood out.)

Four time-based spells! No longer stuck with just Timestop and the Haste/Slow family. They seem pretty balanced, too.

Annoyances

Spoiler:
The elven alternate racial traits would be a nuisance to GM for. Constant detect magic and needing to decide whether or not each combat creature is chaotic. At least they don't stack.

Sczarni

Pathfinder Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So I was thinking of an idea using this book. It would be funny to get slayer (using the archetype from this book) to level 5 then the rest using the twin eidolon and have 4 of you running around.

But to make this work, is there a way to increase the eidolon level so it doesn't lag behind? Like boon companion?


Just waiting to see what the Chronomancer is all about...

I'm betting money its another 'Pact Wizard-esque' level of broken-ness archtype for the wizard..... let me guess it stacks with Exploiter?!?

That'd be too much info. Yes, it's OP (not TOO bad, though- mostly padding out spells per day for save-or-suck casters). No, it doesn't stack with Exploiter.

The problem is that when you have a base class already as powerful as the wizard there should never be a hint of OP associated.

Whereas having an OP Brawler, Rogue... etc archetype is highly unlikely to cause probs..... a lesson Paizo seem oblivious of it seems :((

I like the strong archetypes for 9th level casters, since aside from their spells they don't have a lot to play around with in terms of class abilities. I like strong archetypes in general. I rather have a strong archetype than a boring one, if a GM thinks it's too strong then they can dissuade their player from taking it.

Let's give ALL the classes strong archetypes!

Thanks to Luthorne for what he shared. I'm stuck between delighted and laughing over the description of the Seducer witch and the Seduction hex. Between that and the earlier statement that they get their powers from the Green Mother, I envisage the Seducer as being Golarion's Pamela 'Poison Ivy' Isley.

That story feat is amazing too.

I'm definitely getting this book.

Don't worry too much about this one. "OP" was too strong of a word. Better than base wizard, but in reasonable ways like letting you focus on single target save-or-suck spells without minmaxing the DC. If you want awesome martial stuff, Slayer gets an archetype of comparable upgradeitude!

As the one who got to write the seducer archetype, that's actually not too far off from what I was picturing. ;-)

The Seducer Witch archetype definitely sounds like it works better as an antagonist than as a PC, it seems. It is very difficult, after all, for a PC to arrange to seduce and sleep with an enemy in advance of combat. The GM has a much easier time doing that with horny and insufficiently paranoid PCs.

Is the Hood of Privacy a permanent Mind Blank or something more complicated?

Ally/Army Across Time:
Basically lets you briefly summon versions of yourself from an alternate timeline, though its abilities are basically limited to using aid another, threatening, and having any teamwork feats you might have. Ally across time only lets you have one at a time, and can only summon one duplicate total at first, though you get more as your caster level increases; army across time lets you summon more duplicates, and at higher levels you can have more than one out at a time.

Ribbon of the Three:
Constant threefold face effect.

Hood of Privacy:
Bit more complicated. Basically, completely covers your face without interfering with your senses, gives a bonus against mind-affecting effects, you automatically know when someone is trying to get information about you from a divination effect, and you can temporarily lower the bonus to either provide false information or no information to the person diviner, though they can make a Will save to know the information was false/concealed (but not what it actually was).


What does the slayer archetype get / trade out?


was honestly half hoping to see alternate racial mods for gnomes here, something that allowed gnomes to stack STR maybe.

SillyString wrote:

Ankou's Shadow:
Alright, this one is a bit complicated,

but basically they trade out studied target for shadow double.
At first level at-will you can create a single mirror image
that lasts indefinitely or until you dismiss it, doesn't stack with other mirror image like things. Later on you get a second one and can send them out to provide flanking and aid another, and at higher levels you get a third and can split up your actions between them, attacking with them as if it were you, then eventually get a fourth one and you can use them like unseen servants except with a higher Strength score. Then they trade out stalker for the ability to use see invisibility in 1-minute increments as a swift action. Quarry and improved quarry are altered so that they only work if you have a shadow double present, but they don't need to be a studied target, which is good since they don't have it.
And for a capstone you can release your shadow doubles to attack like independent quasi-real entities a fair number of times per day.

It's not explicitly tied to an organization; they emulate ankou, though it is suggested as being appropriate for those who follow Count Ranalc.

And there in lies the problem... the wizard is already the strongest class with the strongest spell list, ergo any archetype that upgrades the power level is by definition unbalancing and OP.

SOS spells are among the best spells in the game.... so these from a power and balance persepctive are the worst to focus on improving via an archetype.... unless there is SUITABLY COUNTERBALANCING force in the opposite direction.

NO - Wizards are never allowed good things as they're too OP - they should give those spells to rogues to balance things out a bit! [/sarcasm]
