Ultimate Armies is still on my list, but I've been mostly focusing on either development on other people's books or completing stuff for Kickstarters that people have already paid for.

This year I got the second of the Unholy Trinity off my desk with the release at long last of Fort Scurvy, with Ultimate Armies the last one on my list. It's still there, and I've done some more small bits on it as I've been able to, but we've got Kickstarter stuff still stacked up that needs to get out the door first.

Ultimate Strongholds is still being worked on as well, but that one's not me; rather, Ben Walklate (who did the terrific Ultimate Factions, which is on sale for just $2 this week at the Legendary Games website!) is doing that one. I've just emailed him today to see how far along he is and how close we are to getting it up and out the door.

Here's to hoping that you finish the other stuff soon so that you can't get back to working on these two products, after all PF2 is coming down the road! You always do quality work, so I'm really looking forward to how Ultimate Armies and Ultimate Strongholds come out.

And FYI, I picked up Ultimate Factions earlier today when it was mentioned that Ben Walklate had finished it in the Strongholds thread, couldn't resist the $2 bargain for such a great product LOL.

I write this with some concern, since I was incredibly hyped to see both this and Ultimate Armies come out. However, after some energetic discussion about it being worked on, I have heard not a single peep about it in about a year. It was originally discussed nearly 3 years ago that it would be coming out, and yet nothing else has come about it. I've noticed that Legendary Games has been focusing more and more on putting out 5E versions of their products, so I wonder if that has been taking more of their time from doing Pathfinder products. Also, I haven't heard anything about Ultimate Armies since September. The real question is: have these products been greatly delayed, or have they been abandoned to work on other products instead?

TMZ has now reported Tom Petty's death, and they were on top of everything from the start, even the false reports. This news is such a heartbreaker.

Where do you remember seeing it last?


In the Forgotten Realms book Underdark, there was a variant rust monster called an annihilator. Medium aberration, 20 HD, where every feathery caress of its antennae was a disintegrate spell........sweet dreams, everyone.

I am sad that I will not be able to buy this right away. I've loved watching this kickstarter, it's a continuation of a long history that includes the Book of Erotic Fantasy and the D&D Netbook of Sex (yeah, I'm old). I hope to get this when my cashflow is positive again, so for now good luck to a great product!

I started out giving out single use healing items when i did something similar like id call them lemba leaves or what have you and it would be a one shot cure light wounds item.
Naturally occurring Good Berries would be a good idea too. Maybe your herbalists could preserve their power in preserves.

That's my jam.


While my initial reaction was to poo-poo on the entire thing, I find myself intrigued by the idea and would like to see where this goes. It might end up being a disaster; but if it can be pulled off correctly, it would be a pretty epic campaign.

From how you describe it, a wizard would be as terrifying as a dragon flying overhead a group of 1st-level adventurers. It might not attack them at that point in time, but it would definitely give the party a good reason to wear the brown pants.

Even more great books are already in the layout queue, including Legendary Kineticists 2 by N. Jolly and Onyx Tanuki, Legendary Hybrids: Doomguard by Carl Cramer and Jason Nelson, Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches by Alex Riggs

I'm looking forward to those three in particular. I'm also hoping we finally get to see Ultimate Tournaments and Ultimate Armies, both of which I so badly want to read. Sorry, broken record, I know.

It may be sooner than you think... stay tuned.

I wonder if PETA will protest Boba Fett about the Wookie pelts he wears. Given that he is a walking arsenal, it probably would not end well for the protesters.

I think they'll be safe, considering that he's fictional. Just like PETA's ability to change anything.


I think this is what you're looking for, from the Advanced Class Guide:

Quote:


Undersized Mount (Combat)

You've learned techniques that allow you to ride beasts of smaller sizes than normal.

Prerequisite(s): Ride 1 rank.

Benefit: You can ride creatures of your size category, although encumbrance or other factors might limit how you can use this ability.

Normal: Typically a mount suited for you is at least one size category larger than you.

On the other hand, since a few winners are removed every roll, I think, the odds do technically get better as this continues along...

Something in particular from them, or shall I surprise you?

It was really difficult deciding between Legendary Paladins and Legendary Rogues, but I think the Paladins have won out by a slim margin.

Sorry I'm late, I was busy running in circles around a Christmas tree, chased by a raging badger.

Now where were we? Ah yes, the decision. Who could resist the awesomeness of Legendary Games? :D

James Jacobs saying bleed is a new concept for Pathfinder

That's all I've got.

Thank you for looking, I appreciate the effort. Got a game in the next day or two and I'll bring it up with the GM.


bump of desperation


That's quite true, and that's the argument I would make. But my GM is notoriously difficult to convince of RAI, he would rather have something resembling RAW instead. Hence the Search For Truth(TM).

If it quacks like a duck... it's a bleed effect.

Official ruling? Nothing I can think of. Ask your GM.

Already did, and we haven't come to a decision on it. That's why I've posted the question here, in hopes that someone can provide a clear answer.


1 person marked this as FAQ candidate.

Hello everyone, it looks like my Pathfinder group is now getting back together again, and we're playing an evil campaign. Currently I will be playing a half-orc cleric of Zon-Kuthon, one who has the Loss and Murder subdomains.

He will be basing a lot of abilities around bleed effects and will be mostly front line, if he can. His first level feat will be Cruelty, which gives him +2 to hit & damage if he inflicts a bleed effect, among other things.

My question today is, is the 1st-level ability from the Death Domain a bleed effect? The name of it is Bleeding Touch, and the description of it is that "you can cause the living to bleed at a touch", and it even acts like a bleed effect. However, it still doesn't clarify if it's a bleed effect or not. Is there an official ruling on this? I've looked everywhere, but I haven't found any errata on it. I would really appreciate it if someone can point me toward an official ruling on this, and if that doesn't exist, please mark this as an FAQ candidate. I'm alright with the answer, no matter what it'll be, but I just need some clarification on this. Thank you, everyone.

I think patience is the watchword when it comes to Jason's own projects. I get the impression that he spends the vast majority of his time being Jason Nelson, Publisher of Legendary Games, and relatively little being Jason Nelson, Designer.

Picture it like Mark Seifter, who has his day job at Paizo, and does freelancing stuff on the side. LG is Jason's day job, and the books he writes himself are freelancing work that he just happens to be the publisher for, but it's still "on the side".

Unfortunately this means that there are some projects which have languished in design hell for a looooong time, and includes three that I'm looking forward to (Legendary Fighter, Royal Tournaments, Ultimate Armies). It's a pain from a consumer perspective (I want to be all "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!"), but a man's gotta pay his bills, and I can't begrudge him that.

I've got to agree with that sentiment. I've been looking forward to Ultimate Armies for over a year now, and have seen its deadline been pushed back at least four times. But I'm patient, because in the end I know that it's going to be a great product when it's done and that Jason has a lot on his plate already. Because, to make a point, it's never so simple as going from point A to point B when making a product. Sometimes (most times) Jason is quite busy with what needs to be done, rather what he wants to do next. All I can do is be patient and congratulate him on a job well done when Ultimate Armies comes out............shortly before I get on him about creating Ultimate Strongholds. :P

LOL no pressure, Jason. Keep the great work coming!

YES, we actually have movement on our "so very long past due" projects!

The long-simmering "Way of the Blade" for the Far East AP Plug-Ins is just about done, and it's been split into THREE books:

Oriental Options: Martial
Oriental Options: Magical
Oriental Options: Monks

Martial and Monks should be heading to layout this weekend and available by the end of the month. We're still adding more content to Magical, but I expect it should be ready in December. That should put a capper on the Far East Adventure Path series.

Fort Scurvy is next in line in the OLD PRODUCTS pile, and it should be ready to go in December as well.

I'm not sure if I'll get Royal Tournaments and Ultimate Armies done by the end of the year, but I very much will try!

*Happily cracks the whip to give emotional support* Glad to see the progress being made, Jason! I know that you've been wanting Ultimate Armies put out as much as I have.


The answer is simple: game balance. The X4 critical is what people will burn a feat for, and if they don't have to do that, why would they ever take a greatclub? Might as well remove greatclub from the list entirely then. Besides, do you really want to put tetsubos in the hands of ogres?

Teleporting it into that giant ball of fire in the sky seems to be a popular choice.

( I just had a chilling thought: in Starfinder, will there be the Space Tarrasque? "That's no moon,......"


Considering how high a level they are at this point, I'm rather surprised that they aren't putting up anti-scrying spells already.

I think we're missing a fine solution here: steer the rogue's sights toward a DIFFERENT paladin.

All's fair in love and interfaith conflict.

That's a great solution.

By the end of it, the Paladin will have probably traded in his Champion of Holy Light card for membership in the AntiPally club. He won't be retaining his place in the heavenly choir under any reasonable GM, that's for sure.

Then there won't be any reason at all whatsoever for inter-party conflict. None at all. Nope, Nope, Nope.

See? The plan takes the party paladin out of reach because he's no longer a viable target. It's perfect!
