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.

Iomedae's herald is called the Hand of the Inheritor, but in Iomedae's deity stat block his name is given as the Hand of the Inquisitor.

Downloaded the PDF today and reading chapter 1 currently. So far this book shines with a good chapter structure (chapter 1 is clear-cut for players, everything beyond is GM only), methodic archetype description (every archetype gets exactly one page and a decent image) and a quite interesting feat list:

Spoiler:
* metamagic to create difficult terrain with area spells
* Demonic Style for the generic pouncing barbarian (moar damage, bull rush your foes around)
* some fun with tails
* better healing with the Heal skill at level 1
* compression ability at level 7
* Planar Heritage (which actually offers fewer options than Racial Heritage, but can be good for a fly or burrow speed)
* metamagic that throws a target around (at least a fantastic NPC option)
* jump much higher at level 3
There are a few options that put a lot of power into the hands of players (or NPCs):

* a ranger archetype that allows you to fly at level 4
* a feat that essentially gives you hide in plain sight at level 5
* a feat that hands out dimension door at level 9

The dimension door feat turns Dimensional Agility etc. into fighter bonus feats - which is actually very welcome.

I am not so happy with Tempting Bargain. It allows an Unchained summoner to take an eidolon of any alignment (useful), but also can drag the PC's alignment toward the eidolon's - which is a random alignment shift, controlled by dice luck instead of player or GM agency.

I'm glad you (mostly) liked the feats. I had a blast writing them! ^_^

As for that last one, it's obviously meant to evoke a certain very well-known story. The mechanics are there largely to provide a bare-bones version; for a home campaign, I fully endorse working with your GM or player to turn it into a more organic roleplaying process.

** spoiler omitted **

I'm glad you like the look of it - I was rather nervous making a rogue archetype with no sneak attack! Hopefully it attracts a bit of interest (though I'm sure it'll be a rather niche choice). And it should be fully compatible with all emotional foci, backwards and forwards, even those that rely on slam attacks. ^_^

I love the spell anywhere, but here

I love the line in its description that goes "The specific plane is
determined by the table below; the location on the destination
plane where the transported creatures arrive is completely
subject to the GM’s whim."

GM's whim.

Arbitrary.

Beautiful.

Explicitly programming GM discretion into stuff is a personal passion. ^_^

So, snagged a copy of the PDF (and will get a hard copy from my FLGS).

I love it. I love it so very many ways.

The art is killer, the writing is engaging.

The character options are just weird enough to be awesome (As someone with little love for Spiritualists and mad love for Psychopomps, running a Spiritualist who traded their Phantom in for a Nosoi Psychopomp familiar is a thing I didn't know I needed until I saw it).

The deity sections aren't so much long on new information as concisely informative about the general state of a deity's business, which is something I appreciate.

...

Think I'll go post exactly this as a review.


Personally I wish the planar infusion feats granted a natural planar adaptation type effect for the specific plane you are infused with. Also gaining energy resistances and/or other adaptations, traits, characteristics, abilities, etc. related to the plane with the improved and greater versions of the feat.


Are the Lantern Style feats related to Lantern Archons, lantern staffs, standard lanterns, or something else?

I second the praise of that archetype. I wandered all the way over here from the playtest forum that I've been haunting just to express how delightful I found it.

May that archetype wind up a full class on its own in PF2

Well, at least they finally confirmed it. Seriously, that was speculated for far too long now :P

Here's something that surprised me:

Planar Adventures, p. 211, Cynosure:
The Song of the Spheres is absent from Cynosure more often than not, preferring to wander the cosmos. When present, Desna prefers privately hosting friends or lovers rather than holding court. While Black Butterfly and Pulura are the most common of these, many deities have been known to accept Desna’s invitation, from Sarenrae to Shelyn to Calistria; tales hold that even Pharasma, wearied by her eternal duties, once left her throne for a time to find solace in Desna’s realm (and, some whisper, in Desna’s arms).

Even Pharasma might be getting a taste for Desna.

To be fair, not all tales are probably true. Like, Planar Adventures turns the "Groetus eats atheists" into a legend :p

Thanks! Yeah, I was impressed with the level of compatibility, and love the slam solution. (I might see if GMs will allow debilitating injury to apply to the slam attack for UC Rogues, which would make them very strong debuffers.) It’s really cool to see archetypes that play around with what the class is.

Aww. *blushes*

Sadly, gloomblade doesn't multiclass very well... as pointed out, your class features aren't advanced by the prestige class. A kind GM might let you do some fun stacking, though.

Ruins of Azlant:
Somewhere in The Flooded Cathedral (I believe), you can find Azlanti murals celebrating this apocryphal tryst. I'm sure someone can dig up the exact quote, if I don't get around to it once I'm back at my computer. Credit where credit is due, and all that.

If the final version doesn't have a replacement for debilitating injury, that's probably an excellent solution. ^_^

If not real life writing the plot.


At least they finally named the Vampire sorcerer that is in the "Crypt of the Dying Sun". But I would love to know what the name of "the Forsaken Martyr" found in "the Freehold of the Rogue Angel". I see the Grandfather/Grandmother entity is not longer mention in "The Lost" demi-plane, I wonder if it is still cannon?


Does anyone know the monster that is on the front cover? My guess is that it is an Astradaemon, but I'm probably wrong.

You are correct - Mr. Jacobs said elsewhere (maybe in this thread) that he wanted a Pathfinder-specific monster featured on the cover. ^_^

Still reading through it, but so far this book is rock solid. Some of the Conduit feats could probably have used a bit of buffing, but otherwise it looks pretty good.

Well, I personally prefer idea of Pharasma being inhuman, passionless and professional, so her cuddling with other gods kinda makes her seem more human to me. Considering she is possibly oldest god of the pantheon, that would bring her more down to earth if even she needs stress relief cuddling and love which goes against idea that she would never need vacations :D

So that is why I'm willing to believe that one particular rumor isn't actually true, considering that not ALL god related rumors are true even if some of them are. It really wouldn't fit most of what we know her public front at least due to the whole "She doesn't get involved with other gods, has no allies and enemies besides deities of undeath" thing.

(anyway, yeah, Desna, Sarenrae, Shelyn polyamory was in Inner Sea Gods iirc)

Anyhoo, now that Shelyn and Pharasma got mentioned in same post, I love this quote from the book:

"Most nonevil deities respect and admire Shelyn, and her long philosophical debates with Pharasma are something of a legend among the divine."

Mostly because I can totally see Shelyn having those debates with Pharasma and make guesses what they are about xD

Even if things do turn out as gloomy as all that... there's something to be said for going out with a bang. I devoted almost twenty years to learning this system (and two years to writing for it), and I couldn't be more proud of this sendoff. ^_^

Isn't old "Nirvana Dragon" kind of retconned considering that old Nirvana Dragon picture got transformed into Apsu's official picture?

I mean, my headcanon is that Pharasma is trying to hard to be serious and all-powerful and all that and slips occasionally. I refuse to believe she has functioning future sight when nobody else can even come close, and the judging the undead issue has a clear conflict of interest. Pharasma needs to tone it down from trying to be the single arbiter of the universe, because it's not working well anymore.

Apocalyptic Spell is a quite neat metamagic feat for combining battlefield control and blasting - let alone the fact that Apocalyptic Metamagic Rods is a thing as well. I'm a fan!

The affairs of the gods are rather irrelevant at the player level when there is zero chance of PCs catching them in flagrante delicto -- and such affairs cannot be deduced readily from their complex interpersonal relationships anyway.

What would be clearer at the player level is that anyone using magic to question gods about their own or anyone else's sexual behavior would, 90+% of the time, get an answer that indicates complete indifference about such questions.

The idea of a "Nirvana dragon" is indeed something we abandoned with the switch from 3.5 to Pathfinder. The illustration in the first hardcover was never labeled—the implication was that it was of the Nirvana dragon since it was on the same spread of pages that mentioned it, but it's now officially the true form of Apsu.

There will be, eventually, a planar dragon from Nirvana, but it won't be called a "Nirvana dragon."

That's something we left behind in the switch to Pathfinder, in the same way we left behind the overly complex 3.5 skill point system or the rules for grappling or the like.
