Add Another Dimension!

Step beyond reality as we know it! Pathfinder Player Companion: Plane-Hopper's Handbook offers new tools for explorers brave enough to venture into the unknown—whether to abandoned cities created by dead gods, worlds where the ground is made of forsaken souls, or even stranger realms. Add planar allies, magic, or heritage to your adventures and infuse them with the power of the planes!

Inside this book you'll find:

  • Five new eidolon subtypes for the unchained summoner, including dualistic aeons, radiant eidolons from the Positive Energy Plane, and ever-shifting storykin eidolons!
  • Alternate racial traits, favored class bonuses, and racial feats for races with origins tied to the Great Beyond, such as aphorites, duskwalkers, and ganzis!
  • Player options and equipment for characters who walk the planes, from hellish style feats to spell-enhancing planar shards to the planar rifter gunslinger archetype!

This Pathfinder Player Companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but it can easily be incorporated into any fantasy world.

A good solid book with some great options for the plane-touched races. Though I really wish the kineticist wild talents didn't require the planar infusion feat since the class is already strongly connected to the plane that you get your power from.

Nice! I was content with the planar content book, and now I’m getting a book of player planar content too!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Woo hoo! I'll take all of the planar books that I can get. This must mean there are some heavy multi-dimensional shenanigans going on in an upcoming adventure.

Can't wait! Also, I love the cover image (even if it's just a placeholder mock-up). Please tell me those are flumphs!

Cool!


Does this mean you, Mister Todd Stewart have something to do with this?

Also I hope more stuff for daemons along with you know, the rest of the planes.

Aw... Well at least I'll have something else to enjoy towards the end of 2018.

So it's possible Erik Mona's occult research has granted him access to esoteric memory-erasure techniques?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

Looks like those new planar races from Planar Adventures might get some love in this one;)


Looking forward to this. I love planar stuff


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Very cool.

Cautiously hopeful - hoping to see more Ganzi PC options (and Shabti would also be great).


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

Maybe this book will have expanded rules for those planar-infused feats from Planar Adventures:)

Oh, you mean "high five" for a minute there I thought you were talking about the super villain team the "Hive Five";)

Yes, Todd Stewart does need to work on this;)

While I deeply appreciate that folks like my work and want to see more of it, I don't have any input in how freelancers are solicited for books (beyond occasionally obnoxiously asking to write on certain topics, which sometimes works but not always).

The book may already have authors selected (and Paizo has a veritable stable of super talented folks both in-house and freelancers), or it may even be written already and well into development. Of course if it isn't, sure I'd be open to it, but let's please steer talk here back to the book itself and what might be in it and what you want to see therein potentially, rather than talking about me.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

I wonder how space/pages the planar races will get?

I doubt it would be a page(or more) each because that would be at least 8 pages not including 3 more if they add the new ones from Planar Adventures.

I have been quite pleasantly surprised by the content of recent Player Companions in spite of their dreadful titles and apparently boring themes. This one's title gives me great hope :-D


Oh hey look,

That book some told me wasn't gonna be a product, *actually* is...

Super excited for more planar nonsense :)

Yeah, my bad. I probably shouldn't type past midnight.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

It's Okay, I have typed worst things on here because it was late/I was tired.

A September release, that is awhile from now.


Just wishful thinking out loud! ;)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am fully on-board the hype train.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

I am on the back of hype train, I will move on up when we get much closer to release date.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Interesting!


Hope this one includes some Ganzi feats or archetypes.


Was someone deliberately trying to reference Bogleech's "Zone Hopper's Handbook", or is it just a coincidence?

Doug M.

No, two people independently suggested the name, and as one of those I am unfamiliar with the piece you referenced.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Okay! Coincidences are fun.

Also, everyone should read Bogleech's Awful Hospital. Like a lot of webcomics, it started as half-random silly doodling. Both the art and the writing ramped up fast and now it's grown into this amazing, brilliant, gross, funny, moving, bizarre, surreal... thing. (And, to keep it on topic, the main character is absolutely a plane hopper. Just a super involuntary one.)

Due to the current place-holder cover art (from CS Distant Worlds), I am constantly mis-reading the title as "Planet-Hopper's Handbook". :D


I wonder if this book will have a truly planar paladin archetype. Don't get me wrong, Faithful Wanderers are a great archetype, and work well in the Abyss (or the Worldwound, for that matter), but are bit to focused on one plane to function as a more generalist planeswalker.

I wonder if this book or planar adventures will have a time traverser. We saw the chronomancers from legacy of the first world, but I want to see a machine, item, or class option that can explore or cross the vast dunes and sands of the dimension of time. Use technology or magical energies to enter, harness, and explore that uniquely hazardous realm of reality. Note that navigating the dimension of time and going back in your own timestream should not be easily possible. Landing in a different timeline is more likely, or making a quick quantum leap to evade danger is more likely to happen in game, but still.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

It would just be cool to see anything related to the dimension of time in general.


I’m hoping that tieflings will get a sahkil variant in this book!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

Never liked sahkil but it would be nice to have a tiefling option for completion's sake.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

While unofficial, Adam Daigle has been kind enough to take a stab at what Fear-baby-blooded tieflings would look like, in case the book doesn't include them.

Liberty's Edge

This should have been called, "The Plane-hopper's Guide to the Multiverse."

Hopefully as more than "get an SLA once a day" they were in PA. I'd like to see more conduit feats (which actually did interesting things a reasonable number of times per day), particularly would like to see some meta ones that interact with how many conduit feats you have (though I understand it's far too late to do more than hope for them)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

Yeah, I was disappointed in those planar-infused feats from Planar Adventures.

And yet I absolutely loved them. Conduit feats are fun and fabulous! Wouldn't mind more at some point....like this book!


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Wait, the infused had some good stuff too.
It can't all be dynamite.

So the cover and description have finally been updated, but the date is still vague instead of saying september 19th.

AWESOME! a positive energy based summoner archetype, now if I could only get a positive energy based sorcerer bloodline and kineticist archetype. I would be fine with loosing the benefits of elemental overflow and only getting a positive energy blast if I could get channeling, lay on hands, and mercies.

Also new alternate racial traits and racial feats are always welcome.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

People of the Wastes has the Elysiokineticist archetype, my personal favorite. Positive energy kineticist, that one.
Wood has a positive blast, though I was certain you knew that already...you did, right? If so, sorry to be Captain Obvious.

Ah, this has been updated!
RADIANT Eidolons?! FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
