Words Cut Deep

In the right setting, a single scathing word can prove deadlier than a poisoned dagger. Behind the scenes of heroic battles and magical realms lies a seething underbelly of danger and deception. This world of intrigue holds endless possibilities for adventure, as heroes duel with words instead of steel, plot daring heists, and engage in battles of wills against relentless nemeses. A high-stakes game of shadows and secrets is yours to master—if you have the wits!

Whether the heroes are taming the blood-soaked back alleys of their favorite metropolis or jockeying for the queen's favor alongside highborn nobles, Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Intrigue is an invaluable companion to the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook. This imaginative tabletop game builds upon more than 10 years of system development and an Open Playtest featuring more than 50,000 gamers to create a cutting-edge RPG experience that brings the all-time best-selling set of fantasy rules into a new era.

Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Intrigue includes:

  • The vigilante, a new character class that lives two lives—that of an unassuming member of the community, and a cloaked crusader with his own agenda!
  • New archetypes for alchemists, bards, druids, hunters, inquisitors, investigators, mesmerists, rangers, rogues, slayers, spiritualists, and more!
  • New feats and magic items for characters of all sorts, granting mastery of street-smart combat, impenetrable disguises, and misdirection.
  • Dozens of spells to manipulate tense social settings, whether to reveal adversaries' secrets or hide the truth.
  • A complete system of influence, providing new goals and rewards to challenge players and link their fortunes to nonplayer characters and organizations.
  • Systems and advice to help Game Masters introduce a variety of new encounters into their games­—daring heists, extended pursuits, and tense searches for buried secrets.
  • Rules for social combat and verbal duels, allowing characters to use words as weapons to sway hearts and humiliate foes.
  • ... and much, much more!

1/5

Don't get me wrong I love Paizo books, I love their work, and I'm proud to own almost all of their publications.

However, Ultimate Intrigue is the one book I regret buying. It's even more than that, it's the one book i regret they ever published.

We need rules and systems, ok. We need a magic system because magic isn't a real thing. We need a combat system otherwise playing with your grilfriend become home abuse. But we don't need a social system because it's a ROLEPLAYING game. Either you want intrigue heavy campaign and you roleplay them, or you want to dungeon crawl or investigate (that's fine too) and you don't play intrigues. You can even do both and it's great.

Aside from that massive problem, the book suffers from "a turn normal actions into feats/class ability" syndrome. I can't count the number of time where players made me fighters to wizards or rogues with a dual identity. We didn't need the Vigilante, and still don't. And I loved when wizard use to get clever and ask for linguistics/bluff roll to blend a spell into a phrase. Now you need a feat for it. Thanks, Ultimate Intrigue. If that was not enough, some of these nonsense feat are built in feat tax chains.

But the one thing I hate the most about this book is the stupid FAQ it bestowed upon us to promote itself (https://paizo.com/paizo/faq/v5748nruor1fm#v5748eaic9tza). That makes a whole school of magic (illusion) utterly useless, and destroys a lot of others (enchantment).

Now I know I can just refuse to use it. But i use to love pathfinder for the clarity and perfect sense with out need to houserule much.

Now it's gone.


I'm tired of paizo trying to stuff this book down our face

1/5

If I was playing a home campaign this book might be more fitting,

For society play this verbal debate and other ideas for this book really bog down the game play. I like social aspect of games and role playing but as I said society play it slows the game way down to try and get people up to snuff on the mechanics


An amazing new class in a hit and miss supplement

4/5

So, Ultimate Intrigue took a long time for me to come to a complete opinion on.

The Vigilante class introduced in this book is, in my opinion, easily the best non-spellcasting class Paizo has ever created. It breaks up its social options and combat options in such a way that you have a great character able to participate in all areas of the game without having to choose whether you want to be competent in combat or in the myriad other facets of the game like exploration, social encounters, etc. It has deep and well-designed talents that allow you to pick any of a variety of different ways to participate in combat, with or without weapons, and numerous tools for allowing players to influence the story with safe houses, contacts, and more.

At PAX Prime 2016 I had the opportunity to visit Paizo's Pathfinder demo area and play their pregenerated vigilante character. I honestly didn't expect it to go terribly well; after all, the vigilante is a class built around balancing two identities and moving between different social strata, so you'd think that this would require a more controlled environment where you know the other players in advance and have time to plan out how your character fits into the game world with your GM ahead of time, right? Turns out, I was wrong. The vigilante class is well-crafted enough that even while playing a 1st level pregen I was able to easily deal with situations in and out of combat, and it took me about 60 seconds of conversation to establish with the group that I had a secret identity they were privy to and might need them to cover for my character from time to time if he needed to swap identities. It didn't hurt matters that the only downside to anyone learning a vigilante's secret identity is that, well, they know his or her secret identity. You can go all Tony Stark if you want, announce that you are Iron Man, and carry on as normal. Very few of the vigilante's abilities actually require you to maintain truly secret identities, and the only real hit you take is that you're a bit easier to find by magical means (though even this can be addressed with clever use of the Safe House Social Talent).

The book also elaborates on the intent behind numerous spells that often prove problematic for GMs in games where they want to have a focus on gritty investigation of mystery, such as the various detect spells, speak with dead, etc.

I think my biggest disappointments with the book, and the reason I can't give it 5 stars, lie in the feats and archetypes. I'll start with the feats, and a bit about why I see most of them as representative of missed opportunities.

To start with, Pathfinder's skill system is heavily dated. When Paizo brought it over from 3.5, they combined a few extraneous skills, but otherwise did little to update things, meaning the core area of the rules covering everything in the game that isn't casting spells or hitting things is now well over a decade old and out of date. Several skills don't even actually work, or work well, as written, have interactions you're just supposed to kind of assume or make up (Ride and Handle Animal are a mess, Stealth requires one to check out FAQs and blog posts online to use as intended, Bluff and Diplomacy have more than a few vague areas and inconsistencies, etc.), so what better book to address, update, and expand these core components of the game than a book about playing skill and intrigue heavy campaigns? Unfortunately, Paizo chose not to go that route, instead relying on feats to stretch skills over their gaps and issues, leading to many of the feats in the this book providing skill uses that I've seen GMs at hundreds of tables houserule as basic functions of those skills to begin with. Instead of formalizing intuitive uses of existing skills into their basic function, they added a feat tax to allow characters to do things many people already thought they could do. While there is a section in the book going over several of the vague areas in a few key skills, these are primarily common sense clarifications instead of the full address the skills could have used.

The archetypes, like many Paizo hardcovers, are all over the place. Some of them are interesting and dynamic, like the Masked Performer bard archetype, some show an attempt at embodying a cool and modern concept but fail to achieve that concept in the actual execution, like the Magical Child vigilante archetype, and some are just plain bad, so obviously terribly designed that you almost wonder if the person who wrote them has ever actually played Pathfinder, like the Brute vigilante archetype.

Now, don't let the above wall of negativity mislead you; there is a lot of great stuff in this book, including perhaps the most inspired and well-crafted class Paizo has ever produced, a class that introduces really interesting design concepts, plays with components of the class chassis we haven't seen classes treat as quite so malleable before, and is a genuinely fun and interesting class to play in and of itself. Despite many of the feats ranging from useless to frustrating, there are still quite a few that are interesting and viable, and while the archetypes are very hit or miss, that's generally true of Paizo books in general and probably shouldn't be held against this one in particular.

My final verdict on Ultimate Intrigue is 4 stars, and a strong recommendation to pick it up, if for no other reason than to add the Vigilante class to your game (though there definitely are other reasons to add this book to your collection).


Pathfinder presents Batman!

4/5

No seriously. The vigilante class is freaking batman. Look at the art for chapter one and for the character. HE'S BATMAN. Of course they also have archetypes if you want to make Hulk, Sailor Moon, even He-Man. With the archetypes from other books the list goes on.
My favorite part, and I cannot wait to test this properly in a game, is the social combat. It works a lot like playing craps or roulette. You get a pool of Determination points which you use to place a bet then you roll off with your social skills check! Seriously it sounds like lots of fun!


Some good, some bad

3/5

There is really a good amount of cool things in here like the vigilante evne thought i dont like the dual identity system. it feels like a better fighter, which is something i've wanted for a while. but the problem is there's too many rules for things that didnt really need them, so it kind of drags down everything because of it. Some clarification is okay, but this was too much of putting rules on things that didn't need it for me.

My thoughts on the cover art-Dynamic Entry perpetrated by something along the lines of "Sorry about the mess, but the Skull of Venca belongs in a museum, not in your grubby hands, DON ZUAN!!.*guards come in to stop them, a fight ensues, and the heroes triumph* gentle men and ladies I bid you a good evening and goodbye."

Or it Could be the crimson Cowl, The scarlet rook, or even The Bloody Magpie. Who knows what face lies behind that dashing disguise... I Have no clue but i believe it is a man.

Also i love that the pair appear to be crashing into the shortest, most evil looking man at the masked ball..or at least Merisiel is.


That sword would not fit in that sheath.

Is that a ferret wearing a masque in the upper-left corner?

No, seriously, if I'm seeing right, this is my new favorite hardcover-cover.


Wow. The new iconic fits the look for my Crimson Falcon PFS vigilante perfectly!


I believe the masked hero with Merisiel is Blackjack, the Zorro-like vigilante-type character introduced in Curse of the Crimson Throne.

Doubtful. There's too much red in that outfit for Blackjack. Compare to Edge of Anarchy, page 57.

It's almost certainly the new iconic.

That is indeed what I meant. Why invent a brand new iconic (with similar guise) when you've already got an established one you could use to showcase the vigilante class?

EDIT: Plus, tattered red cloak.

Speaking of the ferret, I hope that the warlock talent for getting a familiar with a secret identity from the playtest is now available for the base vigilante, or at least an option to give an existing familiar or animal companion a secret identity. Spunky animal sidekicks are definitely fun.

Edit: Hmm, I wonder if there's a way to get a pseudo-Leadership feat, or a talent or base ability that interacts with Leadership, to snag a vigilante Robin to your Batman. Looking forward to this...

guess which one might be the host of the party on the cover. my best guess is the one that seems to be going "NO. Not my priceless wooden adornments and furnishings!!!" as the heroes come crashing in from on high to ruin the day of the unfortunate about to become a landing platform for the dynamic duo (Who I Will henceforth think of as THE GREAT DON ZUAN).

Nah, it isn't a ferret. If you zoom in, it's the outline of a woman, seemingly with her hand up to her mouth as she gasps.

Well there is Cohorts and Companions which adds some of those things. Though hopefully we don't have the robin curse of a good number getting axed off in horrendous ways, or surviving just long enough to get a bullet in the back of the head.

Korvosan nobles have a habit of overstepping their boundaries. When a noble family began encroaching on the woods outside of the city, the druid Miraneth chose to confront them. With his ferret companion in tow, he took on the noble family. What began as simple sabotage and guerrilla tactics, soon spiraled out of control. The nobles learned of the druid's work and hired a pair of mercenaries to capture him and burn down the woods, finally clearing the land for a new mansion. As he was taken in the night, Miraneth's cries to Shelyn echoed through the trees, overwhelming the ferret's senses as it ran away. Moments later, the Eternal Rose's blessing came down on the ferret, filling him with the spark of intelligence and creativity. The animal awoke to understand why he was blessed: it was up to him to rescue Miraneth and stop the noble plot. With his new skills, he took on the role of Lord Far'rett Entriigo, curious noble from a distant land. When not engaged in the noble courts, Far'rett dons the guise of the Furred Avenger defender of the weak and champion of nature.

I think its meant to be a blend of 2 styles, the piccareque heroes like zorro, the scarlet pimpernel or to pull from the court jester, the black fox, and the cowled and caped heroes of popular culture. Its unfortunate that people complain about something being too super hero looking. If you were to probably play a vigilante EXACTLY like a super hero from the comics, you probably are going to die in record time (even the batman clones).

1. It probably is. Vigilantes probably don't start off with a lot of money for gear, so they are not going to have much more than some leather armour, a fancy dagger, some climbing gear, and a handful of extra items or weapons, and the hooded read cloak. Batman he is not. Batman has a mechanised grappling hook and billions of dollars worth of equipment for one.

2.the Vigilante is being depicted from an angle, and a low angle at that, so some of the proportions visable are distorted as such.

3.The Mask is shaped, but not quite completely form fitting, so some of the features are still not going to be 100% of the head. He could even be wearing a mask under the cowl for all we know.

Its still your opinion if you like it or not. You don't have to play as him. When you get the book, you can play as whatever you like.

Look again at the release date. Looks like we'll be having this a bit earlier!

I like the cover - very light colour pallette with some great expressions on the partygoers/masque revellers faces as this event becomes truly masked... Loving the dynamic duo's actions lines. Nice work Wayne.

An iconic hero should look interesting and cool. So far everyone of them did.
To me this one (if it really is the iconic Vigilante) does not.
The knee pads and helmet/mask are way to bulky to be part of a costume/armor that can be changed quickly without magical help like a bag of tricks.
Also the "self-made" look of the headpiece due to the stitches in the middle doesn't do itself a favor.
When i think of iconic masked Pathfinder figures a "Red Mantis Assassin" or "Hellknight" or even the iconic half-orc "Assassin" come to mind immediately.
All of them are a better design.
Nothing about this guy on the cover is iconic. Not the color scheme, not the weapons or any part of his outfit.
Merisiel looks way better.
Why not use the "Master Spy" prestige class on the cover?

Maybe wait until we know more before getting too negative?
Also, I hear his voice as more Adam West batman...

Why not use the "Master Spy" prestige class on the cover?

Okay for starters, think about how you remove knee pads. These you probably undo with a set of straps or ties. fairly simple. The Vambraces probably come off in much the same way. the cloak has a easy to remove design. Now the rest probably come off fairly simply. remove mask, top half and bottom half(after undoing the belt first) and you should probably be in at most a simple undershirt and underwear. Also where are you going to change as a vigilante? Probably in a safe spot, where you probably had prepared ahead of time some spare clothes or an outfit to hide in.

Also if they simply used the master spy design, it would be partially redundant and confusing, like "Why is there the master spy on my ultimate intrigue book? I can understand that it sort of relates to intrigue with being a spy and all, but where is my iconic character?" Every player had at least some of the iconics (or races) contained within doing their thing(or in the case of the bestiary books, the monsters contained within). Its a sort of cover coding for what sort of things are in the book so people can tell from a glance if they would like to get it to add to their collection. If i saw only monsters from bestiary 1 on the cover of my bestiary 5 book, i wouldn't probably get it unless i already knew what was in it.

And "the nothing about this guys outfit is iconic?", Answer me this. IN WHAT PATHFINDER BOOKS HAVE YOU SEEN THIS SORT OF PERSON BEFORE? NOT MANY I CAN TELL YOU THAT. Even if you personally hate the look of the character, YOU DO REMEMBER SOMETHING LIKE THAT. You remember who they are. And just to clarify, i don't care for the design of the cavalier iconic, the Warpriest iconic, or the Wizard Iconic. Do I HAVE to play as them specifically. ABSOLUTELY NOT. Will I Play A Wizard, Cavalier or Warpriest...maybe i will, maybe i won't. I certainly won't play as the Antipaladin Iconic(I just don't like his design), Though I would play as an Insinuator Antipaladin of my own development(Gwendolyn Thistleton was my choice of name).

There is NOTHING stopping you from not playing the Iconic Vigilante. If you don't like the character, don't play as them. You can play who ever you want. Its your choice. But please don't make the thread discussion all about how you don't like the look of the character on the cover. Taste is subjective, and a good number of the iconics are not very interesting to me.

Okay......

Everyone lets not get in an argument about art. After all beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and everyone is a critic. Some iconics a we'll like the look of and others we won't is just a part of the art world.

My own opinion is that the long eyebrow Gnome and huge pupil eyed elves are disagreeable to me, but others like the alien look to those characters and I just leave it be myself.

In terms of the appearance there are a couple of details we ALL need to examine before we start snapping at each other,

1. We haven't seen the character backstory yet as the iconic could have a social persona of a local backer thus making adventuring gear costs cheap.

2.we haven't gotten the official iconic solo image yet which will allow us to see more details of the iconic.

So let's leave this thread to the upcoming book and hold the character bickering (critique/support) till the official iconic reveal blog.

Also don't Beholders have multiple eyestalks that can cause all kinds of nasty things including disintegration. If Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder, then Beauty=destruction and harm. If Beauty=destruction and harm, then that means Rovagas, Zon-kuthon, And Lahamashtu are gods of beauty.
