Planar Fun

3/5

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

5/5

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!

5/5

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

5/5

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.

Any new class options for the wizard or shifter. One for fun, the other for guide reasons.


An overview of the unique miracles the core 20 grant would also be pretty cool.

Could I get a description of the Inevitables in the book?


Piggybacking off of that, could we get a description of the Aphorites?

After first showing up as just a name on the Maelstrom map in The Great Beyond, and a number of namedrops since then, you all get to read up on Galisemni, the City of the Celestial and the Damned.

Singing to us the Seven are. / Are you appreciative of the silence? / Silence everywhere but here.

What kinds of options did the Ganzi get?


Which of the main planes is the most disturbing one? And the most welcoming one? That's my greatest curiosity right now, but I'll have time to read about all of them to find this out.

Now, I would like to get more details about the Watcher, as it's one of the most notorious creatures in the book. From which plane does it come? What's it meant to watch?

Is the watcher meant to watch a particular thing, or just things in general?

Spoiler:

According to the write-up, no. They seem to be particularly interested in watching worlds on the edge of destruction, however.

Spoiler:

They're blue-ish skinned humanoid in form. They come in two flavors: Fates (LN) and Fortunes (CN). Fates have animal faces while Fortunes have humanoid faces. They're locked in a perpetual civil war.

Wizard gets a Worldseeker archetype. There are also spells. I didn't see anything specifically for Shifters, but it's a big book so there might be a nugget in there I haven't seen.

Hard to describe. They exist so that axiomites don't have to drive themselves crazy dealing with chaotic mortals.

Spoiler:

Aphorites are discussed (kinda) above.
Duskwalkers are like honored souls who are given an opportunity at life to to perform an important task or something similar, under the guidance (maybe) of a psychopomp.

I'm going to have to wait until Monday for my PDF aren't I?

I have a game tomorrow... I neeeeeeed it.


Thanks again, Skeld! Anything on the Argent Warden? What does it look like? Is it intelligent? Is it made out of some celestial silver, or is it just a cool name?


Anyway, what does the Leviathan look like? I hear it has a gaze attack that is worse than death, care to extrapolate on that?


What is a Wisagatcak, anyway? Do you know how to pronounce it? What plane is it from? Does it like to create disasters?


Are etheroots intelligent? Are they actually NOT from the ethereal plane, and name is just there to confuse us? What do they look like?


Do Roselings have anything to do with Leshys? What can they turn into? Is it just me or are their a lot more shapeshifters in this bestiary section than usual?


Is there a new polymorph spell among the spell options?

In which plane do they live? Actually, if you have already read that much, from which plane do each of the creatures in the bestiary come?

Wait I see permanent bonuses so does that mean that the other gifts are not a one time thing? Thanks. :)


Anything for paladins?


A list of the spells would also be nice.

I certainly think the new spells should be very nice, but I'm more excited to see the feats (among other things). Of course, I'm absolutely biased in these cases. ^_^


Is Jandelay one of the demiplanes described in the book? =O

Could someone actually share the names of the major planes and the demiplanes described in the book?

Would anyone be willing to describe the Boogeymonster?


Sorry to double post, but I'm really curious now; the Wisagatcak is apparently named after a Cree culture hero and manitou similar to Nanabozho. What is it like as a monster and Lawful Evil? I'm honestly uncertain how I would go about interpreting a figure like that.


So, as far as I can remember, Empousai are (in greek mythology, in any rate) shapeshifting evil spirits who schtick is seducing, then eating young men. Seeing how in Pathfinder they are instead CN servants of Calistara, can we safely assume that they are only man-eaters in the figurative sense, rather than the literal?

It looks like a suit of full plate help together with energy ribbons. It is intelligent. No mention of celestial silver.
