Will preordering count towards the aforementioned eventual printed book?

It will definitely give a discount, yes. Until we know the exact page count and print cost, I can't say how much of a discount.

The person in me that loves having more options: Huzzah!
The person in me who was utterly disappointed by the way that Tome of Battle destroyed any balance of power in 3.5: NoooOOOoOOOOoooooooOOOoo

I will wait until I see some reviews to pass judgement.

If you haven't seen them - there have been playtesting threads on all the material in Path of War at Paizo, Giant in the Playground, Dreamscarred Press, and probably more sites / threads.

Lots and lots of playtesting went into these books to make sure they can work side-by-side with the core classes.

The material so far is rocking good, and is much better balanced to the Paizo material than Bo9S was to the old 3.5 material.
The New classes, Warder, Warlord, and Stalker, all have some pretty unique niches that they fill and manage to bring some great new flavor into the game without stepping on any of the existing class' toes.
The Warder is a particular favorite of mine, but I think the Warlord is getting the most love from my group as a whole.


Does this give them as they come out or do you have to wait to get them all at once? If you can get each soon as they come out definitely grabbing this after work.

As they come out.

Right now this gets you the stalker. Once the warlord is out, both will be included.


I love this. I love this so much. Now the challenge of being able to use this in a game. All of my friends see Tome of battle as super broken, and likely will think the same thing of this without even giving it a look. But, I managed to get them to be okay with me using Psionics, (those pesky 2nd ed Psions made it so difficult to get people to let you use Psionics, I swear.)


oooh i am going to pick this up right away.

I love DSP, it is nice to see that i can pay some money down to get a quality product, and they even give it to me in chunks so i dont have to wait.

I loved what you all did with psionics more than the original system, and i am quite sure i will love this even more than i liked book of 9 swords.


From what I've seen so far, this is well on its way to becoming a piece of RPG gold. I'm really loving the Warlord, and the organizations are cool as well.

Quick question though. During the playtest, there was talk about feats oriented around specific disciplines (the one we saw was Primal Fury related). Are those still in the works?


Is Hero Lab support planned? Thanks.

I have a Community Package just released that has the Warlord, Feats, skills, stances and maneuvers. As it took so much time to get the Maneuvers to select right (I built a whole new frame work) most of the class abilities and feats are NOT scripted. This means why you can activate a stance on the "In-Play" tab it will NOT adjust/change your character. But you can at least keep track of the Maneuvers you have readied and Stances activated.

For full info and how to download see THIS post over at the Hero Lab forums.

This is initial release v1.0 and later versions will add more scripting, classes, and maneuvers.


Am I the only one having problems downloading the new update? It never starts for me.


I received an email about an hour ago telling me that my update was ready for download, but it doesn't do so when I click on the link. I get the "please wait 10 seconds" message, then I click on it again and nothing happens. It just sits there and with the personalization message still up.

Same thing happening here.

Well, it WAS Friday night when the issue was reported, and much as I'd love to spend all my time on games, I do have a two year old and a newborn. :-)

I am looking into it.

FEH! Adulthood! What nonsense!

Just kidding. I'm actually quite patient. DSP's stuff is good enough to wait for.

I'm guessing it had something to do with watermarking. I normally don't enable that, but it auto-enables, so I've re-uploaded the file and turned off watermarking. It's just waiting on Paizo staff review and approval now.


Thanks, Jeremy!

Let me know if you want to re-enable this, as we are experiencing some issues with the personalizer/downloader right now.

It's not really a big deal to me either way. :-)


I finally downloaded my copy today, and I fell on my knees shouting to the heavens how I'd finally found the replacements for monks in my campaigns. The three Paths of War classes are exactly what I've been looking for. Now, for a slight retooling of the Ninja (which I have up until now not allowed) and I've got a 20th level assassin to complete the set.

Also, are there plans to post these on www.d20pfsrd.com?


I'm already enticed here, but are there more classes on the way than the three released so far? That may change this from a "Cool, maybe later" to a "Must get now!" :P


It's been a few weeks, so I'll ask again. Are there any plans to put these classes and maneuvers on www.d20pfsrd.com? While I have all three releases (and they're awesome) it'd also be mighty handy to have them online.

Johnico - I know there is going to be at least one more release before the compilation, but I'm not sure on another class.

Cal - yes. I'll give them a nudge.


Thanks, Jeremy! I just finished rolling up my first PoW character, a human Broken Blade Stalker. I'm very excited about using her as the NPC bounty hunter looking for the PC's in my next game. Thanks to you and everyone else there at DSP for a great product!


is this a complete product at this time? I still see it marked as Work in Progress PDF.

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

There is still one serialized release, then we have to combine it all into a single book. That fourth release is expected to be out next month (April).


Can you give us some hints as to what's in the next installment?

Me personally, no, because I haven't seen it. Andreas and Chris are working on it. :)

Any idea when we might see another update? I would love to see possible magic items or traits. Possibly racial favored class bonuses :)

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

The next update is going to be the compilation of these 4 parts (Stalker, Warder, Warlord, Supplemental Content).

These four parts were the planned release for the Path of War. :)


Has anyone started a forum for the new release of the Path of War Work In Progress release? If so can someone direct me there as my search results are failing me.

Just curious about the changes in the stances and levels they are gained or if that was scrapped.

Just a few notes on copy such as the quick description of 'Golden General's Attitude' in particular "and saves
against fear effects to all allies within 60 ft. vs fear"

I'm guessing the last portion of 'vs fear' was meant to be cut as it reads fine skipping that section.

As always awesome job, love the work here ErrantX!

The changes are being made to the class tables to address the stance thing, it looks like I missed it in the layouts but I've brought it up. I'll check that stance! I appreciate your support :)

Loving this so far, but one thing I can't find the answer to. When do I decide to use a Counter? Before my opponent rolls to hit or after?

They're (generally) immediate actions, so you get to choose. It would make more sense to use one after a hit is rolled. In fact, there's (at least) one that is designed to apply to incoming critical hits, so you clearly have to be able to activate them after learning you're getting hit.

That's what I thought, but some confirmation is nice. Thank you!

In the current package does the PDF "Path of War" contain all the info from the the four other PDFS, i.e. "The Stalker", "The Warder", "The Warlord", and "Supplemental Content"?

The compiled book is just that; all of the source materials put together. It's very nice.

Cool, thanks!


Do we have any idea when a final release will be and how much will ultimately change on what we already have?

Publisher, Dreamscarred Press

I'm through with edits on 100 of the 160ish pages of the book. I was hoping to have it done last week, but a crazy day job and a sick family made that impossible.

I'm hoping to knock out the remaining pages this week.
