Oh man. I'm going apesh*t for this book, now!

Silver Crusade

As someone who was eagerly awaiting a jungle environment book in the Stormwrack/Sandstorm/Frostburn line that never came, I've gone bananas at the prospect of this book.


Holy crap!

Is this the first Pathfinder illo by Vinod Rams? I love his stuff! And with pathfinder I get two great tastes that taste great together.


Most excellent....this book and the AP after the current one are the content I am most eager for.

(Indiana Jones movies and old Flash comic books are popping into my head now....)

Wow, I love that pic.


This illo officially declares that paizo is made of awesome.

spoiler:
And do I see that Mr. Gorilla has a hint of purple coloring? Even better!

Me Tarza ... *cough* Me Valeros.

She Merisiel.

You, bigass Cheetah Ungawa.

Ungawa = Flanked biotch!

Holy Awakened Dire Gorilla's Batman!!! Hmm? What do apes say when they want to the the monkey off their backs? In this case Valeros!

--Don't you know you're going to Vrock the Monkey!


Ook ook ook! Oh yeah and run, Merisel!

Stop monkeying around Valeros.

I took that as a sign she overestimated the damage her sneak-attack would do to the big guy.

a 1 for damage and a 1 on the sneak attack damage will do that to you

I guess Gorilla Grodd's mind powers are not working? ;)

Well, Merisiel is running away and he still has jewelry on, so possibly!

Unless she's snatched some already. In which case she better run faster. Nothing scarier than a gorilla who wants his silver back.

I don't mean to pry, mate, but what's wrong?

Personally, I think the iconics are just aping for the camera in this action shot.

I take it the pun ("silver back"... "silverback") was unintentional then? If so, that makes it even awesomer!

Silver Crusade

I will never tell!

It shall forever be a mystery!

Ack!
Chee!

OMG! Is that the Tyrant Ape? Or just a silverback variation of the Dire Ape? ^_^

I am not decided if they are in combat or if they are playing Whack-A-Mole.

The River Kingdoms have spoiled me forever, I fear.
I spent 5 minutes looking for the dead owlbear in this picture!!!

(Not really but it makes for a good joke.)
(Okay I did spend a *few* seconds looking for the dead owlbear.)

I think so, too. Hopefully she'll get it back when Valeros quits monkeying around.

That would make for a GREAT monstrous feat!

TRAP WEAPON [MONSTROUS]
This creature can trap the weapons of attacking creatures in its tough hide.

Prerequisites: Natural armor +5 or DR 5, Str 20

Benefits: When attacked with a slashing or piercing weapon by a creature two or more size categories smaller, if the creature's damage is not greater than your natural armor bonus or DR (whichever is better), you can trap the attacker's weapon with a successful combat maneuver check against the attacker's CMD. This attempt does not provoke an attack of opportunity.

To retrieve their weapon, the attacker must make two successful grapple checks or Escape Artist checks against your CMD, one to grab the weapon and one to remove it.

For example, Merisiel attacks the Great Grape Ape (a Huge Dire Ape, natural armor +7) with her rapier, doesn't score a critical hit, and does a whopping 6 points of damage. Since this is less than the Grape Ape's natural armor bonus, it flexes its tough hide and makes a combat maneuver check at +17 against her CMD of 29. On a 12 or better, her rapier is lodged in its side.
