Blaze like the sun!
Crash like the waves!
Thunder like a rockslide!

Harness the overwhelming power of the most primordial forces of nature with Rage of Elements, a new 224-page rules resource for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game focused on the fundamental building blocks of reality itself!

The elements are yours to control with the all-new kineticist class, which brings one of fantasy’s most popular hero types to Pathfinder. New elemental spells and gear provide tons of additional element-themed options for all character classes, and an extensive gazetteer provides an overview of the majestic elemental planes—including two new ones: the decaying Plane of Metal and the vast and orderly forests of the Plane of Wood. A meaty bestiary presenting scores of element-themed creatures helps to populate these alien landcapes—and liven up even the drabbest Material Plane dungeon!

The gateways to elemental power stand open wide with Pathfinder Rage of Elements!

This deluxe special edition is bound in faux leather with metallic deboss cover elements and a bound-in ribbon bookmark.

Do we know for sure if this is going back to the red cover (after the deviation with Treasure Vault)?

It will have a unique cover, just as Treasure Vault does. All future rulebook special editions will be unique.

Oh, boo. I like the red cover on these and the blue on the LO line. :-(

Yes.


Will the special edition be available the same day as the regular edition? My FLGS has been able to find some of the more recent special editions for order.

Hello! Yes, the special edition has the same release date as the regular edition. Street date for those is August 3rd. (:


That is good to hear. My FLGS still cannot get ahold of SE Firebrands or pre-order the SE Highhelm.

They may want to contact their Paizo point of contact? Not a lot the team on here can do without knowing who is having the problem and where.

Rage of Elements is the first Pathfinder book to show the upcoming Remaster changes, and we've got a free Core Preview PDF to lay all of those changes out for you — and give you some special extras!

Just got my hands on my copy of Rage of Elements Special Edition and it leaves me wondering: What's going on with the printing in the special edition book line? They started out looking great, then the style changed after the "core" books, which is fine if the core and non-core books are different, then Treasure Vault is blue...ok, I guess, it's an item book, not a "class" book, after all.

Now this. Plain red, no border embellishment on the cover like previous class books, no leather-like pattern in the cover like previous books. Obvious drop in material quality for the cover. The reason I became a special edition subscriber in the first place and own every special edition book - the fact the special edition books looked amazing on your shelf and felt great in your hand - is rapidly disappearing.

What's going on, Paizo?

Props to the Lost Omens line for keeping standards up, at least.

The new remastered core 4 Special Editions will have a simian look. But every SE rulebook will be unique going forward, including Howl fo the Wild. Spine consistency it not a feature of the line.

Please communicate low quality issues to customer service, so they can track it.

Monkey business! (or more likely, autocorrect)

Sorry to clarify, going forward the SE books are dropping the border embellishment that the previous SE had and are only going to display title?

I have to say that is a major down grade. Previously the back cover was kept interesting with the filigree border, if they are going to be just plain and empty, I don't think I will continue purchasing the SE line.

I have chatted with the Art Team.

Non-core books will continue to have special border treatments and individual SE covers. They will have 1 foil color and different color leatherette depending on the title.

The core 4 will look like a set. All core books will have two foil colors, deboss, and be green leatherette.

Lost Omens SE Hardcovers are not changing at this time - silver foil, blue leatherette, frame border.

Does this help?

Thank you for checking and getting that information for us. It is a little sad you guys are leaving what I think was a great design and colouration but I'm assuming there are reasons.

I'll just have to see the new books outside of core after they release.

Hopefully this books was just the outlier.

Thanks for responding Aaron. Having seen the Core SE covers in person at GenCon, I think they look great, and making them a set makes sense.

However, I can't say the same for the rest of the rulebook line. They're already looking very mismatched on the shelf, and it seems like it's only going to get worse.

Again, very happy that the Lost Omens SE line is staying the same.

Just received my copy today and I agree, the cover design has taken a HUGE step back. If this is the effort now going into an $80+ book, I'm seriously considering cancelling my subscription.

I've subscribed for all these years to support Paizo and get a better product than the store bought version. So not only do we get no discount for subscribing, paying full price, but the products we now receive look inferior to the standard version (and to add hurt to injury, arrive dogeared as this one did - please use stronger cardboard corners).
