Nice! I was content with the planar content book, and now I’m getting a book of player planar content too!


Woo hoo! I'll take all of the planar books that I can get. This must mean there are some heavy multi-dimensional shenanigans going on in an upcoming adventure.

Can't wait! Also, I love the cover image (even if it's just a placeholder mock-up). Please tell me those are flumphs!

Cool!


Does this mean you, Mister Todd Stewart have something to do with this?

Also I hope more stuff for daemons along with you know, the rest of the planes.

Aw... Well at least I'll have something else to enjoy towards the end of 2018.

So it's possible Erik Mona's occult research has granted him access to esoteric memory-erasure techniques?

Looks like those new planar races from Planar Adventures might get some love in this one;)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Looking forward to this. I love planar stuff


Pathfinder Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Very cool.

Cautiously hopeful - hoping to see more Ganzi PC options (and Shabti would also be great).


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Maybe this book will have expanded rules for those planar-infused feats from Planar Adventures:)

Oh, you mean "high five" for a minute there I thought you were talking about the super villain team the "Hive Five";)

Yes, Todd Stewart does need to work on this;)

While I deeply appreciate that folks like my work and want to see more of it, I don't have any input in how freelancers are solicited for books (beyond occasionally obnoxiously asking to write on certain topics, which sometimes works but not always).

The book may already have authors selected (and Paizo has a veritable stable of super talented folks both in-house and freelancers), or it may even be written already and well into development. Of course if it isn't, sure I'd be open to it, but let's please steer talk here back to the book itself and what might be in it and what you want to see therein potentially, rather than talking about me.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I wonder how space/pages the planar races will get?

I doubt it would be a page(or more) each because that would be at least 8 pages not including 3 more if they add the new ones from Planar Adventures.

I have been quite pleasantly surprised by the content of recent Player Companions in spite of their dreadful titles and apparently boring themes. This one's title gives me great hope :-D


Oh hey look,

That book some told me wasn't gonna be a product, *actually* is...

Super excited for more planar nonsense :)

Yeah, my bad. I probably shouldn't type past midnight.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

It's Okay, I have typed worst things on here because it was late/I was tired.

A September release, that is awhile from now.


Just wishful thinking out loud! ;)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am fully on-board the hype train.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am on the back of hype train, I will move on up when we get much closer to release date.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Interesting!


Hope this one includes some Ganzi feats or archetypes.


Was someone deliberately trying to reference Bogleech's "Zone Hopper's Handbook", or is it just a coincidence?

No, two people independently suggested the name, and as one of those I am unfamiliar with the piece you referenced.

Okay! Coincidences are fun.

Also, everyone should read Bogleech's Awful Hospital. Like a lot of webcomics, it started as half-random silly doodling. Both the art and the writing ramped up fast and now it's grown into this amazing, brilliant, gross, funny, moving, bizarre, surreal... thing. (And, to keep it on topic, the main character is absolutely a plane hopper. Just a super involuntary one.)

Due to the current place-holder cover art (from CS Distant Worlds), I am constantly mis-reading the title as "Planet-Hopper's Handbook". :D


I wonder if this book will have a truly planar paladin archetype. Don't get me wrong, Faithful Wanderers are a great archetype, and work well in the Abyss (or the Worldwound, for that matter), but are bit to focused on one plane to function as a more generalist planeswalker.

I wonder if this book or planar adventures will have a time traverser. We saw the chronomancers from legacy of the first world, but I want to see a machine, item, or class option that can explore or cross the vast dunes and sands of the dimension of time. Use technology or magical energies to enter, harness, and explore that uniquely hazardous realm of reality. Note that navigating the dimension of time and going back in your own timestream should not be easily possible. Landing in a different timeline is more likely, or making a quick quantum leap to evade danger is more likely to happen in game, but still.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

It would just be cool to see anything related to the dimension of time in general.
