It's not the actual cover though (as lovely as the art is; it's reprinted from a very old article we did during Legacy of Fire when we first introduced the proteans)—hopefully we'll be able to show off the actual cover soon! It's RAD.

well... now we know where a hellfire kineticist archetype might show up. I am going to buy this book for sure.

One of three is probably Ganzi(for Maelstrom) I guess? But what are other 2, are they completely new?


Somewhere in the depths of my mind, where fantasy implies nature being extremely weird, I think "Ultimate Wilderness has been delayed to June, I wonder what that book with the Shifter is on"

Let's get both supernatural and super-natural!

I figured that's why I said how good it was.

Can't wait to see the actual cover. So about 5 months? ;)

Interested in the first and third bullet points, actively repelled by the second and fourth. This is a wait and see until I get some page counts for the sections.

That is to say Void Element in a source that can be added to the PRD would be fabulous.

What % of this book is actually information on the planes?

An expansive bestiary, is that at least 20 pages?

I'm deep in the book's development, but I can answer these.

Each major plane gets a six page section to themselves. That, combined with an additional dozen pages devoted to demiplanes, sets up about 130 pages of the book's 256 pages to be specifically focused on the planes. And there's more info scattered here and there on the other pages. SO... what percentage is "actually information on the planes"? I'd say over half. Maybe as much as 60%.

The bestiary section is looking like it's gonna be about 30 pages long, and it's got stuff from all over the planes. Outsiders are certainly represented, but there's other things as well.

Will the demi-planes(Crypt of the Dying Sun, Freehold of the Rogue Angel, The Lost, etc.) mentioned in the Great beyond book be in here?

Some, but not all. The focus of this book is NOT on demiplanes, but it certainly sets up a discussion about demiplanes. The bulk of the demiplane section (10 of its 12 pages) focuses on 10 specific demiplanes—one per page. But there's a lot more than 10 demiplanes out there, especially since some of the ones we talk about in those 10 pages are ones we hadn't envisioned at the time the softcover Great Beyond book was published eight years ago.

*Raises hand*

Is the First World considered a major plane? If not, can it be counted as one anyway?

Good to see this book in general and the new 0-HD Law/Chaos planar races in particular.


Hello, if have any new class in this book ?

Yes. The First World gets a 6 page entry. This is a weird one, since it gets a whole 64 page book, so in this particular case it's likely not going to present much NEW information to folks who have read the 64 page First World book... but keep in mind that for a LOT of folks, this'll be the first time any real information about the First World will be seen (since the First World got left out of the brief planar info stuff in GameMastery Guide).

Are all the demi-planes mentioned in the Great Beyond book still cannon?

You guys mentioned that there will be a system/rules for characters being infused/infected by contact with the planes. Will this be a feat, feat tree, template, or some other mechanic?

Yes, they are all still canon.

The infusion rules will be via a feat tree.

Will this book have any new optional rules, alternate rules, or subsystems?

Is it safe to assume the maelstrom plane touched race will be a reprint of the Ganzi?

Nope; not the purpose of the book to have optional rules or new rules subsystems.

And yeah, the ganzi are one of the zero HD races in the book. Exactly how tied they end up being to the Maelstrom remains to be seen, since I've not delved into that part yet. Sometimes we have to guess when we write these initial solicitation texts for books when we're still in the process of baking the contents, after all! :-P

This is good but I'm still hoping beyond hope we'll be getting the following:

Chronicle of the Righteous
Concordance of Rivals
Advanced NPC Codex

Thank you for answering my questions Mr. Jacobs.

With 30 pages of monsters then every plane and dimension described in the book could get at least one new inhabitant.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hmm. 30 pages of bestiary seems tolerable. That still leaves 220 pages to other material that I think I will find more palatable. Glad to see the ganzi; I quite enjoyed them in Distant Shores. I think I will probably get at least the PDF, even though six pages per plane is awfully skimpy. I would've MUCH rather had half the amount of planes, and 12 pages per plane, and a Planar Adventures 2 later for the rest of the planes. 6 pages barely covers anything. I get horrible flashbacks to the 3.0 Manual of the Planes whose plane writeups were over as soon as they started.


FINALLY!! More Planes! :D

LENG!

I am fine with 6 pages per plane since we can have every major plane and dimension covered plus a page per demi-plane.

This could be very intriguing...I am more excited by Ultimate Wilderness (coming soon!) but the Planes can be interesting. Loved the Campaign Setting book of the Planes. Great reading, that.

STUFF!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So if we get roughly a 130 pages devoted to the planes, dimensions, and demi-planes. The demi-planes take up roughly 12 pages of those roughly 130 pages. So that leaves roughly 118 pages divided by six is around 19. That means we get like 18-19 different planes and dimensions.

The demiplane stuff does NOT take up part of the ~130 pages on the planes.

That said... it's still way too early to assume these numbers are set in stone. Maybe wet concrete that's quickly drying though...

I'm hoping the Ganzi get all kinds of crazy, out-there alternate racial traits. After all, why would pure chaos interacting with mortal life ever create two of the exact same type of creature?
