Root leshys: never developed?


Pathfinder First Edition General Discussion


Root leshys are mentioned on page 86 of Blood for Blood (Kingmaker 4).

"Among the best known are superstitious gourd leshys, clever root leshys, and wary leaf leshys, though others are rumored to exist."

However, to my knowledge, this is the only mention of root leshys, despite them being one of the "best known" types of leshys. Have their stats been released somewhere?

Thanks in advance!


There are a lot of things mentioned in 1st edition that was never stated up or developed in anyway. Time elementals come to mind.


Time elementals sound cool!

Kind of disappointed that there are things left forgotten. It could be a great thing for Pazio to have a table of features that were never developed: a writer is stuck/lacks inspiration -> hey, have a look at these features that we never fully built.

Paizo has been known to return to stuff mentioned years ago, so they certainly keep a track of those. At the same time, not everything gets ever developed as some ideas fade into obscurity after never really striking a chord with the team or audience. Darklight Sisterhood is one example.


Darklight Sisterhood, sounds familiar, what was that from?

There actually are time elementals in a 3rd party book (Tome Of Horrors), maybe that's what they were referring to?

Let me Wiki that for you.


Okay, I remember them now. So many good ideas that just get ignored, forgotten, or just plain retconned.


I assume the Sisterhood ceased to exist once someone figured out that covert operations are difficult when you all have the same last name.

Indeed, it's such a pity. I guess that's where a lot of third party content comes in handy, but it's not quite the same.

Its kinda why I'm always kinda afraid that when old creature gets adapted to Bestiary and then back to APs that writers on adventures haven't read their old ecology articles(or ones expanding them such as the monsters revisited books) :'D In some cases that might be good thing(such as when creative director is like "What? No underfhans aren't supposed to have eye in their mouth", othertimes its like "But it was cool that gremlins reproduced by budding!" while adventure definitely doesn't assume that single gremlin can multiply
