7-page PDF supplement

The Tulita of the Razor Coast were born where the fire meets the sea, and they possess both in their hearts... the burning power of their mother Pele, and the ancient changeless wisdom of the Great Eternal Ocean. The warrior tradition of the Tulita is a mystery to most foreigners. They wield no steel, scorn the foul-smelling smoke of gunpowder, and many carry no weapons but their bare hands, simple scrimshaw knives or koa wood clubs, and yet the few foreigners who have witnessed a Tulita’s hamala’kal, or heart of fire, knows just what these proud warriors are capable of. The Warrior’s Way is evolved from a thousand years of warfare, self-cultivation, and quiet observance of the raw and unforgiving power of the Earth itself. Those trained in its mysteries are no longer men or women; they become a force of nature instead.

This PDF supplement offers players and gamemasters alike a bevy of new combat options for their martial characters, including 12 new feats, alternate class features, new weapons, and a new basic attack option.

I like the flavour...

2/5

On the one hand, I love the reimagination of the monk. I love the fluff.

On the other hand, there is a feat that is so over the top, it hurts.

I can only despise "Montain breaking Fist". For one feat, you get an unarmed threat range of 15-20 and ignore ANY DR apart from /epic. And you only need Improved unarmed strike, improved critical and another feat from the Pdf to take it.

This feat is so terribly broken, it really drags down the rating. I'd give this Pdf 4 Stars, but this feat is TERRIBLE. Ignore it, unless you go for insanely overpowered PCs.


Hand to hand fighting- Coastal style

5/5

This PDF focuses on the fighting styles of the Tulita, a people with a tribal culture on the Razor Coast. They have certain mystical tattoos which grants the bearer power as well. A truly unique little resource for your 3.5 campaign, especially if you're looking to switch things up for a seaworthy campaign arc.


Very Over-the-Top

2/5

Nick Logue, unquestionably one of the best adventure writers in the business, brings us a collection of aggressively Hawaiian-themed items and feats to make your unarmed combat break the bonds of mere punches... and enter the realm of the comic book hero. With these feats, you can punch through solid rock, crit as often as with a keen rapier, and casually toss people 30 feet through the air. If you always wanted to play the Incredible Hulk, you NEED this very inexpensive PDF. Unfortunately, if you prefer a grittier, more simulationist approach, it's best to steer clear of this one entirely, and buy some of Nick's excellent adventures instead -- or take a look at "The Art of the Duel," which is slightly more down-to-earth.

Rock! Good to hear it Lazaro! That's my fave of the tattoos I think!

So, the same day I pick up Indulgences Wave 2 (what can I say, I'm addicted to EVIL...) one of the players in my upcoming Pathfinder Playtest/Rise of the Runelords game inexplicably announces he wants to play a fisherman-monk from Sandpoint. So methinks he'll be an adherent of Gozreh, rescued from the sea as a child and tutored by a crusty old Tulita ex-patriot in the ways of Ocean and Spiky-Whale-Death-Punches.

Point being, Logue, stop sending darkstinkysecret dreams to influence my crew. Last thing I need is a bunch of c~!@@!@+~ing shark-humping dervishes reciting poetry and spitting swamp-water on each other's naughty bits.


I mean, not for nothing, but I like shark humping c~##$~&%!ers. Whats the problem?

Ha! Awesome! Hope the ****punching goes well for you (Nick's not allowed to write "c+##!+~~&ing" anymore now that he is a Paizo employee).

Enjoy the Indulgence!

Nick, I just got the PDF, and just like the "Art of the Duel" PDF, it was well worth every cent. Now I want to convert my old 3rd level, 1st edition monk into a Mai'kal for the Pathfinder game.

Also, reading the improvised "natural" weapons of of the Tulita reminded me of some of the weapons in Dark Sun, like the Tortise Blade (horse-shoe crab-like gaunlets that allowed you to stab and enhanced your punching attacks), the Thanak (a wooden sword studded with ptarrx teeth), and the Carrikal (a sharpened jawbone attached to a haft, sort of like a battle axe).

All in all, good job!

Ha! Nope, Sinister is my own wee publishing house. We put out OGL adventures and supplements. Our Indulgences line is a series of mini-pdfs (though some of this month's grew to not-so-mini-size).

The Warrior's Way is a supplement for monks, fighters and like-minded characters who want to be able to whip out some Island-style martial arts techniques and add some new interesting weapons and items to their repertoire.


Hey Nick, normally speaking I love your work, and the theory behind this has a special place in my heart (my geology teacher is one of the leading people involved with the archaeology of Easter Island). But I gotta ask, what's up with the feats in this book? Ignoring all damage reduction? Knocking people across rooms with no save or opposed checks? I'm really at a loss.

It won't be much to fiddle with the feats balance wise as I convert them over to pathfinder...Just curious as to why you thought this was balanced to begin with?

Either way, I just ordered my copy of Razor Coast, and am dying in anticipation. Looking forward to the scifi setting as well. Been looking for something outside the traditional fantasy I always find myself mired in.


Whenever I try to print this PDF - an error box flashs on the screen that reads "Is printer aviable?" I click "yes" but it doesn't print. I tried some other PDFs - including another one I bought from paizo - and that one printed ok. Is anyone esle having trouble with this file?

Nope works fine. I just wish they came out with more of them.

I haven't seen this particular error before. I'd suggest making sure you have a recent version of Adobe Reader.

Googling the error message turns up this suggestion:

'If you have the latest version of Acrobat reader and you can view the article correctly on screen but cannot print it, with the PDF file open in Acrobat Reader, choose "Print" from the File menu. Then check the "Print as Image" option in the Print dialog.'

I suspect that "print as image" option doesn't appear for everyone, but if it appears for you, give it a shot.
