PFS legal alternate tieflings

I have seen some people in PFS using alternate versions of Aasimir that had different stat bumps (instead of WS & CH) from the Aasimir listed in the advance race guide. Are there any PFS legal alternate versions of Tieflings that have a different set of stat bumps and where can I find them?

You want Blood of Fiends.


Yep. They're called heritages, I think, and they're in Blood of Fiends. (The Aasimar equivalents are in Blood of Angels.)


Yes, and they are all in the book Blood of Fiends.

There are quite a few available heritages. As always you need to own the resource, as all those alternate Aasimars should have Blood of Angels ;)

Even if they got the short end of the stick compared to the Aasimar.

Our end is only shorter because we sharpened it. All the better to poke with!

I just want to fly with my wizard tiefling! Without using spells. (Pout!)

Thank you all for the responses.

Blood of Fiends/Angels are the reason Tielfings and Aasimuuurs should be boon only.

Not sure how that makes sense, but ok. Every other race before them had their own book.

I'll give you a hint, content.

Perhaps you should speak on what, exactly, you find disruptive or unbalancing, rather than coyly hinting at its existence?

Read the books, form your own opinions. Then you can agree or dissent according to what you know instead of what other people told you to think.

The various bloodlines give stat combinations that are usually better than those for the core races at any particular build AND still have some goodies left over (unlike the versatile human who essentially comes with a +2 +2 and NO other racials)

Counterpoint:

The tiefling/aasimar stat spreads never double up on physical stats. Dual-Talented Humans are the only way to do that. (I believe they're also unique in being able to do INT/WIS, but I'm going from memory and could be wrong on that.)


The Aasimar/Tiefling heritages do make it possible, more often than not, to cherry-pick the right stat combo for the class you're going to play. (Daemon-blooded for Magus? Hell yes.) But I don't think they're inherently more or less OP than standard Aasimar/Tiefling, just more customizable.

Daemon-blood is the only one that is banned, actually. My guess for fluff reasons more than anything else. :P

Note that it's the daemon bloodline that is not allowed, the daemon-spawn heritage is just fine.

Nope. The Daemon Bloodline (i.e. Sorcerer class feature) is banned. The Daemon-Spawn Tiefling Heritage is legal.

Many, many people are confused by this--it took me a few minutes of staring and re-reading to figure it out--but the AR is fairly specific on this point.
