From Heaven to Hell

There are worlds beyond the one we know: Planes of Fire and Water, Heaven and Hell, Dimensions of Dreams and Time. These are the realms of angels and demons, gods and goddesses—entire new realities where anything can happen!

Pathfinder RPG Planar Adventures expands the world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and transports your characters and campaigns into uncanny new worlds rife with both perilous dangers and unimaginable rewards. In these infinite planes of reality, characters will test more than just their mettle against the daunting challenges that confront them—they'll test their very souls!

Pathfinder RPG Planar Adventures includes:

  • All-new archetypes, feats, magic items, and spells to give plane-hopping PCs a bounty of options during their travels.
  • A presentation of the 20 core deities of the Pathfinder RPG, including divine gifts they can grant their faithful.
  • An exploration of the major planes of existence and several strange demiplanes from the Pathfinder campaign setting.
  • Nearly two dozen new monsters, including three new races appropriate for use as player characters.
  • ... and much, much more!

Pure Money Grab

*( )( )( )( )

We all expect to spend money on items that are valuable to us, and I had no problem shelling out for this piece, as it looked as if it could be awesome.

However, when I received it and read through it, to say I was disappointed would be an understatement. Not only is a huge swath of information contained here rehashed, but the new additions are generally underwhelming.

As icing on the cake of disappointment, the usual Paizo sexism is present, with all pronouns referring to players defaulting to the female for some reason. Are all of Paizo's players now female? Do they want only female players? As well, the vast majority of gendered art portrays female characters. Discriminating against men is just as bad as discriminating against women, Paizo. Shame.


Planar Fun

***( )( )

A good solid book as far as campaign setting information goes. But they should have made the book edition neutral with as little or no gaming rules. So the book could have more room for campaign setting information especially the dimensions/demi-planes that got at best a page of information.


Solid Gold Awesome

*****

My spouse and I haven't been so captured by a RPG book in ages - this was hours of fun just paging through, imagining so many different scenarios, uses, quirks, builds, stories, and fights.

For Campaigns, this is some awesomely rules for traversing the planes, in short or long form.

For GMs, fantastic monsters and plot hooks.

For PCs some really fantastic magic items and feats, many of them versatile and adaptable to many of the planes instead of being heavily tied to one.

An amazing finale for the Pathfinder line.


By the Divines!

*****

I've been playing Pathfinder for about two years now, and this is the book that I've been looking forward to since I read about the planes and outsiders. The planes themselves are detailed enough ,to satisfy my thirst for info on them and to run a campaign on any of them, and leave enough room for any GM to play around with.

This book is a must have for any fan of the Great Beyond.


Wonderful, much needed book

*****

I grabbed the PDF yesterday and read through the source immediately. This book is exactly what I wanted from it. Beautiful art, cool archetypes, flavorful feats, and wonderfully well-thought out lore. Really a delight of a text.

It's not the actual cover though (as lovely as the art is; it's reprinted from a very old article we did during Legacy of Fire when we first introduced the proteans)—hopefully we'll be able to show off the actual cover soon! It's RAD.

One of three is probably Ganzi(for Maelstrom) I guess? But what are other 2, are they completely new?


Somewhere in the depths of my mind, where fantasy implies nature being extremely weird, I think "Ultimate Wilderness has been delayed to June, I wonder what that book with the Shifter is on"

Let's get both supernatural and super-natural!

I figured that's why I said how good it was.

Can't wait to see the actual cover. So about 5 months? ;)

Interested in the first and third bullet points, actively repelled by the second and fourth. This is a wait and see until I get some page counts for the sections.

That is to say Void Element in a source that can be added to the PRD would be fabulous.

What % of this book is actually information on the planes?

An expansive bestiary, is that at least 20 pages?

I'm deep in the book's development, but I can answer these.

Each major plane gets a six page section to themselves. That, combined with an additional dozen pages devoted to demiplanes, sets up about 130 pages of the book's 256 pages to be specifically focused on the planes. And there's more info scattered here and there on the other pages. SO... what percentage is "actually information on the planes"? I'd say over half. Maybe as much as 60%.

The bestiary section is looking like it's gonna be about 30 pages long, and it's got stuff from all over the planes. Outsiders are certainly represented, but there's other things as well.

Will the demi-planes(Crypt of the Dying Sun, Freehold of the Rogue Angel, The Lost, etc.) mentioned in the Great beyond book be in here?

Some, but not all. The focus of this book is NOT on demiplanes, but it certainly sets up a discussion about demiplanes. The bulk of the demiplane section (10 of its 12 pages) focuses on 10 specific demiplanes—one per page. But there's a lot more than 10 demiplanes out there, especially since some of the ones we talk about in those 10 pages are ones we hadn't envisioned at the time the softcover Great Beyond book was published eight years ago.

*Raises hand*

Is the First World considered a major plane? If not, can it be counted as one anyway?

Good to see this book in general and the new 0-HD Law/Chaos planar races in particular.


Hello, if have any new class in this book ?

Yes. The First World gets a 6 page entry. This is a weird one, since it gets a whole 64 page book, so in this particular case it's likely not going to present much NEW information to folks who have read the 64 page First World book... but keep in mind that for a LOT of folks, this'll be the first time any real information about the First World will be seen (since the First World got left out of the brief planar info stuff in GameMastery Guide).

Are all the demi-planes mentioned in the Great Beyond book still cannon?

You guys mentioned that there will be a system/rules for characters being infused/infected by contact with the planes. Will this be a feat, feat tree, template, or some other mechanic?

Yes, they are all still canon.

The infusion rules will be via a feat tree.

Will this book have any new optional rules, alternate rules, or subsystems?

Is it safe to assume the maelstrom plane touched race will be a reprint of the Ganzi?

Nope; not the purpose of the book to have optional rules or new rules subsystems.

And yeah, the ganzi are one of the zero HD races in the book. Exactly how tied they end up being to the Maelstrom remains to be seen, since I've not delved into that part yet. Sometimes we have to guess when we write these initial solicitation texts for books when we're still in the process of baking the contents, after all! :-P

This is good but I'm still hoping beyond hope we'll be getting the following:

Chronicle of the Righteous
Concordance of Rivals
Advanced NPC Codex

Thank you for answering my questions Mr. Jacobs.

With 30 pages of monsters then every plane and dimension described in the book could get at least one new inhabitant.

Hmm. 30 pages of bestiary seems tolerable. That still leaves 220 pages to other material that I think I will find more palatable. Glad to see the ganzi; I quite enjoyed them in Distant Shores. I think I will probably get at least the PDF, even though six pages per plane is awfully skimpy. I would've MUCH rather had half the amount of planes, and 12 pages per plane, and a Planar Adventures 2 later for the rest of the planes. 6 pages barely covers anything. I get horrible flashbacks to the 3.0 Manual of the Planes whose plane writeups were over as soon as they started.


FINALLY!! More Planes! :D

I am fine with 6 pages per plane since we can have every major plane and dimension covered plus a page per demi-plane.

This could be very intriguing...I am more excited by Ultimate Wilderness (coming soon!) but the Planes can be interesting. Loved the Campaign Setting book of the Planes. Great reading, that.

STUFF!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

So if we get roughly a 130 pages devoted to the planes, dimensions, and demi-planes. The demi-planes take up roughly 12 pages of those roughly 130 pages. So that leaves roughly 118 pages divided by six is around 19. That means we get like 18-19 different planes and dimensions.

The demiplane stuff does NOT take up part of the ~130 pages on the planes.

That said... it's still way too early to assume these numbers are set in stone. Maybe wet concrete that's quickly drying though...

I'm hoping the Ganzi get all kinds of crazy, out-there alternate racial traits. After all, why would pure chaos interacting with mortal life ever create two of the exact same type of creature?
