Ki Swordsman. The other way you could have went when combining Monk + Fighter, full BAB Ki pool, mystic sword tricks with said pool.

Sort of Magus without the spells at all.

Hah, I like her. The whole "I'm tired of this pansy sword crap!*face punch*" makes me smile.

So about those new iconics miniatures... I am pretty sure no one here wants to wait two whole PF:B sets for a chance to get one of these avatars of badass as a prepainted mini!

Just get the Amiri mini and cut the sword off, instant kess

That would actually be somewhat serviceable. If you had a spare Amiri. I have none :P.

But my meaning was, me want set of ACG iconics as prepainted minis, and me no want to wait until mid-2015 or 2016 for just a single one. Which would be the earliest if they aren't doing the Tian iconics after Oracle and Summoner, based off of RoW which only had the witch and this year which is going to have two PFB sets.

And yeah yeah, I am sure Reaper will get some out, but I hate painting metal and hate waiting for more affordable easier to paint Bones versions.

They are the visual embodyment of a class, a charcter design intended for use in book and AP art and to choose the "sex" of the language in the class entry. Really, I see them best as a tool for artists. Don't have to design a completely new character for each and every single art piece involving PC class characters. Also, brand image. Really, Pathfinder would look totally different if there were no iconic characters.

They also serve as great PC miniatures.

I heart the iconics.

I have not seen anyone mention that Quick Study is an Exploit you have to choose when you level, not a deed that every Arcanist automatically gets as long as they have a point in their pool. It is quite good, but I don't know if we'll be seeing it on every Arcanist from now until the end of time given how cool I expect other new exploits to be.

I'm not sure that pointing out that there may be still MORE powerful options is a good way to counter the argument that arcanists are too powerful :-).

Personally, I worry that the really overpowered character will be the archetype who gets more spells (the only real weakness with the arcanist right now) or possibly some crossclassed monster. I'm willing to wait and see what we get but I am feeling pessimistic right now. It certainly "feels" that the Arcanist is going to be at least as powerful as the 2 most powerful classes in the game.

Honestly I am just wondering why everyone is so hung up on this one optional exploit which, while good, hardly breaks the game and is roughly equivalent to existing abilities of other classes.

Ok, so finally have the Catacombs of Wrath ready to go! For VTT users and owners of large printers/those who can get poster size stuff printed, I have 150 dpi versions of the catacombs.

Catacombs of Wrath with grid
Catacombs of Wrath no grid
Catacombs of Wrath no grid, no lighting

Later I will have a 200dpi pdf that is designed to be printed at home and meant to be played in a reveal as you go type of way... once I get this pdf creation thing down.

Damn you, IZ. I'm now going to have to find a reason for the players to use this map!

Might have a hidden opening in the rocks that leads to a small shrine - occupied, of course, by something suitably nasty.

I'm always happy to make more work for GMs everywhere ;)

Gwee-hee-hee... You're up the creek without a paddle! And I'm not gonna let you through! ... Does that make me a bad octopus?

Well, what does Rovagug make his spawn from? On paper, spending eternity with your god is one of the less horrible fates for evil souls, unless of course Rovagug fuses thousands of screaming, mad souls together over the course of centuries to mold into its world crushing spawn...

Although trying to break the prision through critical mass is an interesting idea too!

Very accurate. "Think of the children!!" Is the worst argument you can give to defend bigotry. Children are quite fine with many things until adults tell them it is morally reprehensible and start rewarding them for thinking the same way.

Heh, that is a good question. Being that the Great Old Ones and Outer Gods don't give a fart in the wind about the 'soul economy' that most deities are involved in, I would assume their worshippers wind up trapped in Purgatory, but maybe they will be judged for their actions and sent to Hell/the Abyss/Abaddon? Or maybe worship of such things destroys anything resembling a soul and they get the sweet reprieve of nonexistence? Seems hardly fitting for the madness and atrocities that they would spread in life though.

So I find my PC's talking to Kendra Deverin relatively often and they respond much better to visual aids, so I whipped up a printable one-panel battlemap of her office in the town hall, hope someone else finds it handy :)

Also have a sheet of standees I use for NPCs, though it was very hard to find a suitable image for some, I'm looking at you Lonjiku :\. needless to say they are mostly copywritten images so are for personal use only!
