Ray Guns and Rocket Packs!

It’s one thing to face a dragon armed with a longsword and a suit of magic plate mail, but what if you had an atom gun and powered armor? How many zombies could you blow up with a rocket launcher? What happens if you’re standing next to a graviton reactor when it explodes? All of these questions and more are answered within the pages of the Technology Guide—an invaluable manual of items, hazards, and character options for use in science-fantasy settings like Golarion’s Numeria, land of savagery and super-science!

Within this book, you’ll find:

  • Rules for dozens of new technological items, including weapons, armor, force fields, hologram generators, grenades, cybernetic implants, nanotech devices, remote controls for robots, and more!
  • New feats, spells, and archetypes for technologically savvy characters, along with rules for how your skills interact with super-science.
  • Extraordinarily powerful scientific items and artifacts, such as extinction wave devices, powered armor, and nuclear reactors!
  • The technomancer prestige class, which allows you to use magic to command robots and power your technology .
  • Rules for artificial intelligences, the effects of the passage of time on technological items, the dangers of radiation, the seven skymetals of Numeria, technological traps, and more!

The Technology Guide is a must-have for GMs running the Iron Gods Adventure Path or anyone looking to introduce super-science into any Pathfinder adventure or campaign setting.

paper quality is bad

4/5

Nice book with a lot of sci-fi items,, something like Wizardry in Golarion .. I woud like to give this book 5/5, but I cant. Reason why I cant do like that is simple, the quality of paper is just terrible. Paper Quality of Paizo books is going down, what is sad .. for me 4/5


Essential for Adding Tech to Pathfinder

4/5

Read my full review on Of Dice and Pen.

The Technology Guide provides gamemasters with the information and items they need to add technology into their fantasy games. It's not particularly exciting or innovative, but that's not really its point. Instead, it forms the necessary baseline for other books to build upon, much like the Core Rulebook provides the baseline rules for the entire game. If you want technology in your games, it's a book you really can't do without.


Meh

2/5

There are some interesting items in here but having sci-fi with magic breaks the immersion for me.


Pretty damn cool

4/5

I picked up this as a pdf because it looked interesting, and I was not disappointed. I used it to write an adventure (crashed UFO in a fantasy setting), and it led to the most fun I have ever had running a game. It would be useful if it had suggestions for other books containing some of the referenced monsters (such as certain types of monsters which I found on the pfsrd), but all in all it does exactly as promised.


Yes. Get it.

5/5

If you have any interest at all in genre fusion in your adventuring, this book is a must buy.

I may have stolen a sentient item that can do the next best thing. There may be an awful lot of running involved, however. And I have a habit of leaving the parking brake on.

Not sure I'll really like this as part of a fantasy campaign, but it might come in handy for finally putting together my long-hedged plan to turn Green Ronin's city of Freeport into a space fantasy space station. Hmm.

Very nice! I'm hoping that all of these tech-based Golarion books eventually help spawn a full hardcover setting-neutral futuristic rules book.... Yes, that would make me very happy.

This is a perfect way to bring the magitech back to my magitech home campaign setting.

Oh yeah. I knew we'd get some info, but I thought it would mostly be buried in an article or two in Iron Gods...definitely looking forward to this. Not only for Iron Gods, but for people who want to run something involving Vercites, more fun with other kinds of aliens in general, advanced magitech settings...and, of course, Hellworlds and the possibility of cyborg devil troops attacking after Hell's plan for the subtle approach goes under...

Am now imagining a marilith weilding an ammo-replicating flaming SMG, a vicious monofilament wire whip, a wounding chainsaw arm, a vorpal lightsaber, a shock-stick, and a gravity gun. And she has a plasma-lance "stinger" cybernetically implanted in her tail.

Damn.

I'm just curious whether we're going to discover that before devolving to their current level of technology, space-going Grippli established the first civilizations on Golarion along with huge energy generators at the poles that have now caused dimensional rifts allowing Things from Beyond to cross over... ;)

Well, since outsiders can be summoned to almost anywhere on the Material Plane, and Distant Worlds pretty much says it makes little difference to most outsiders...my personal pet theory is that there's definitely a demon lord or two who're doing their best to hide their cache of stolen technology as they experiment with it and build their armies of cyberdemons...while Hell mostly keeps it in reserve for those worlds where they've given up on the attempts to seduce, trick, or behind the scenes take over...and just do a plain blatant military takeover with Hell's finest cybernetically enhanced devils...and mortals from those worlds that have fully fallen into Hell's arms. (I mean, there have been comparisons to Apokolips for Hellworlds...I figure at least some of them have got some extensive cybernetics going on...) One had to wonder if at least a few kyton demagogues aren't dabbling in cybernetics and genemodding too...

If this is an April Fools' joke, it's been going on for weeks as I crunch all the numbers in the book to get it ready for print in time for the Gen Con deadline. In such a hypothetical, the joke would surely be on me.

I already put alot of these on my wishlist. If it is a joke, it's a bad one.

I seriously need to make it to GenCon now.

Is anyone else wondering how long it would take for Mikaze's heart to give out if such magitech things were added in to her Wrath of the Righteous campaign?

What would happen if she encountered the above Marilith, only Mythic, leading an army of half-cybernetic tieflings with implanted hellfire blasted pistols and prehensile monomolecular bladed tails?

Well, Mikaze is a dude, so unless there's some cybernetic augmentations that would give him lady parts...

Wrath of the Righteous:
This AP has a character that drank a potion that permanently transformes him into a girl.

Already on it, my good man. My "Magitek Factory" adventure from a PaizoCon of past is going to get some dusting off.

And to reiterate, these product announcements are *NOT* April Fool's jokes. I would not have stayed as late as I did last night to get them up on the site *before* today if that were the case. :D

It's not an April Fool's joke.

And I know some folks aren't interested in Technology rules... but we're doing them. Overall, I am VERY delighted with the overall response so far... it's a relief to see justification that the AP I've wanted to do for so long isn't only something I'm interested in.

Folks who want a return to more classic concepts will be delighted in the NEXT Adventure Path if they stick around. I'm looking forward to it, for sure!

With this book and the other Iron Gods related releases, maybe we will be able to take PF rules and play a sci-fi or post-apocalypse RPG. About time. I too hope that the Iron Gods AP is a proving ground to feel out the public demand for a full-on sci-fi version of the rules. Unspeakable Futures a la James Jacobs anyone?

As a matter of fact... just as the gunslinger was adapted from Unspeakable Futures... large portions of this book (about 2/3 of which was written by me) is pretty much directly ported out of Unspeakable Futures.

And if Iron Gods and its support material do well, that will certainly inform us at Paizo as to the demand and interest in a science fiction game.

I've always been a firm believer that if done correctly, you can use the d20 system for any genre. So I cannot wait to do this. I've always wanted to do a Pathfinderized version of Space: 1889, even if I have it for Savage Worlds :)

Play an android paladin of a janiform Sarenrae/Brigh, arm myself with a +5 merciful EMP burst hardlight longsword, and redeem the $&@! out of them.


On the one hand, it does increase the reasons to explore Numeria. On the other hand, I suspect it's a prank. But I would buy this.
