Hey everyone!

Although not exactly a Pathfinder version of Savage Species (the creation of which the inimitable Mr. Swank clearly has well under control! :), I though if ever there were a group of people who might be interested in the just-released Advanced Races Compendium hard cover from Kobold Press, it would be this group!

From the product page:
"The Advanced Races Compendium gives you everything you need to play a monstrous adventurer in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Its pages are packed with PC racial feats, traits, spells, bloodlines, gear, magic items, archetypes and more for Gearforged, Lizardfolk, Kobolds, Tiefling, Gnolls, Shadow Fey and more — and it’s easy to adjust these classic and new races to suit your campaign’s power level."

Please consider giving the Advanced Races Compendium a gander! Thanks!!!

Marc, that looks amazing! Take my money! I am so getting this.


Any chance we can get a list of what monsters will be included Mr. Swank? Maybe getting a dragon next?


.... one of my PC's just died so that ghost one that was mentioned would be useful.

Milo v3: I love a lot of these monsters and their classes, but there is a part of me that friggen loves the ghost class. In terms of mechanics and flavor, it rocks! It is designed to allow players to make a 1st level PC as a ghost, but I also playtested it when my 5th level PC died and the party had no money or ability to rez me.

*Looks at current game were villian is a ghoul in a house full of ghosts and a level 5 PC just died against ghouls*

*Rubs hands together*


Any chance we could get a teaser with the red dragon... I ask because I am creating a dragon for Skull and Shackles, and atm am using dragon companion handbook, but... there is much I dislike about it (for one, it sits behind the paladin in actual power, and many of the active abilities draw on uses of breath weapon, which is 1/day without feats, and each feat you take is +2 uses)


I am abit surprised it's only earth elementals.


Jeff, how similar is the Succubus to the Erinyes? Could one create a Erinyes, and swap the class features with the Succubus after release, with minimal changes?


Just a heads up, the undead supplement is done: http://dreamscarred.com/product/monster-classes-undead/


1 person marked this as a favorite.

The succubus and the erinyes are two different beasts, even if they appear similar in artwork. If you can't wait for the succubus PDF, I know Necromancers of the Northwest wrote a succubus class here that is also based on the succubus monster, though I don't know how closely it will match this conversion's result, 20-level expansion aside.


I hope either Titan, Succubus or Nymph are next.....

We definitely did the succubus, just finishing up other demons to release it with. With so many monsters it is likely that not all creatures will make it into the first run. I don't think Titan is on the current work up list. Nymph was, but I pushed it done the list to work up options on handling her extreme Charisma bonus.

Oh gem dragons, I will wait for you~

Wait a moment, Nymph was done but not included...

Though the high Charisma could be an issue for some GMs and Players....
So it is understandable to delay it some....


I purchased your "work in progess" book (obviously, I'm a huge fan of your work). However the last update was on Apr 26th, and I need a Janni for my next campaign (starting as soon as all characters are ready). My son wants to play one who becomes an eldritch knight. Is there any chance I could get either the old copy, or the copy that is currently in art/layout? We are starting at lvl 1. I used to have a copy of your last released book before your work with Dreamscarred Press, but after changes in my computers and cellphones I can't seem to find a copy of it.


Any hints as to the next group of monster levels we'll be getting...

Sorry about the delay... The next release should be within a few days. It will include the Succubus and the Hound Archon.


Hound archon hunters will be interesting.... keeping my players away from just auto-picking succubus may be difficult.

Wow, Love the release now that I've really had a chance to read it.


I posted this in the product page but thought I might get a better response here.

I have two questions regarding monster classes:

1. How does favored class bonus work? As the monster class is technically the race, I assume you don't get any favored class bonus HP/skill points with monster classes, but you do get FCB when you take a standard PC class?

2. If you take the alternate spellcasting, is you caster level for spellcasting from monster classes based on your character level like it would be with other races? E.g. I have a dryad that takes the alternate spell casting and chooses Magic Fang as a 1st level druid spell. At Level 7, I take a level of Ninja. Is my Magic Fang spell CL6 or CL7? I assume CL7 as it would work as per spell-like abilities of a race (a 10 level Aasimar has daylight CL10).

Hey Mythraine,

Sorry I missed this on the product page.

1. Monster classes did not include any favored class bonuses, this will change in the update release that is soon to be released. Until then, yes, just use favored class bonus on any character classes taken.

2. In your example CL7 is correct. :)


Awesome!

Thanks Jeffrey


Is there a living document version of this project somewhere?

Yes. You can get the subscription which will give you all the previous and future pdfs, or you can pick and choose from what's already available.


Wondering if another Monster Class book is in the works?

I think they're waiting on 2.0 to come out to see which direction 3PP products are going to need to go. Basically to see if there's still a market for 1.0 products like this.
