Pathfinder: Wild Ride of Races

October 30, 2014 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Favored Class OptionsEarlier this week, we shared with you all of the classes covered in Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Favored Class Options. We said that all of the races contained within will be getting a favored class option for all 43 of those classes. So the real question becomes, what races is this going to cover? Today, we’re bringing you that answer.

The Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Favored Class Options covers these races:

  • Android
  • Catfolk
  • Changeling
  • Elan
  • Gillman
  • Lizardfolk
  • Merfolk
  • Samsaran
  • Skinwalker
  • Tengu
  • Wyrwood
  • Wyvaran

A dozen races each getting 43 different favored class options means there are a total of over 500 different favored class options for your game. Also these are the races that we will be releasing more details on in 2015. I hope you are excited as we are for this wild ride of races.

Pathfinder: All the Advanced Options

October 28, 2014 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Favored Class OptionsNot long ago, I had a discussion with a number of gamers that collectively said they want more options beyond the core book races. Since then, myself and a team of some excellent authors I have had the pleasure working with have been working hard on making that happen. We all still have alot to go to make this book as fabulous as we all want it to be. There is one part that is almost finished up: the favored class options. So here is the exhaustive list of all the classes that have favored class option:

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook: barbarian, bard, cleric, druid, fighter, monk, paladin, ranger, rogue, sorcerer, wizard
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Advanced Players Guide: alchemist, antipaladin, cavalier, inquisitor, oracle, summoner, witch
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Ultimate Magic: magus
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Ultimate Combat: gunslinger, ninja, samurai
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Advanced Class Guide: arcanist, bloodrager, brawler, hunter, investigator, shaman, skald, slayer, swashbuckler, warpriest
Dreamscarred Press’s Ultimate Psionics: aegis, cryptic, dread, marksman, psion, psychic warrior, soulknife, tactician, vitalist, wilder
Rogue Genius Games’s Genius Guide to the Time Thief: time thief.

So which of those races have these favored class options?

ALL OF THEM.

That’s right. Every race in this book has 43 favored class options. It does not matter what class you take with any race, you are not limited to the standard hit point or skill point. Now you have options. How many options? We will reveal the final list of races soon. In the meantime, the cover shows 3 of the races in this book.

We hope you are as excited by this as we are. Happy Gaming.

13th Age: New Monsters Aplenty

October 23, 2014 Leave a comment

image As mentioned in the description of the Deadly Delves: Reign of Ruin, there are over 20 new monsters in this adventure. A number of them are half dragons. Yes, this dragon has been busy! Right now I want to share with you two of those half dragons in this adventure. We hope you enjoy them in your own 13th Age adventures.

Half-Dragon Lizardman Brutes
This lizardman stands a full head taller than his savage brethren, his scales a deep, near-black green and his eyes a bright crimson red. Leathery wings spanning eight feet rise from his shoulders, and his facial structure is noticeably more primal and draconic than the rest of the Ixtupi.

Large 4th level wrecker [dragon]
Initiative +8

Stone-tip spear +10 vs. AC—15 damage.
Natural 16+: The lizardman brute can make a bite attack against the target or another creature engaged with it as a free action.

[Special trigger] Bite +10 vs. AC—10 damage, and the lizardman brute can make a ripping frenzy attack against the target as a standard action during its next turn if it’s engaged with that target.

[Special trigger] Ripping frenzy +8 vs. AC (3 attacks)—10 damage.

R: Thrown spear +8 vs. AC—15 damage.

C: Acid breath +9 vs. PD (1d3 nearby enemies)— 10 acid damage, and 5 ongoing acid damage.
Miss: 5 acid damage.

Flier: Half-dragon lizardman brutes are clumsy fliers, usually hovering only momentarily to attack with their spears or breath weapons.

Intermittent breath: Half-dragon lizardman brutes can use acid breath twice per battle, but never two turns in a row.

Resist acid 12+: When an acid attack targets this creature, the attacker must roll a natural 12+ on the attack roll or it only deals half damage.

AC 20
PD 18
MD 14
HP 110


Orsephia, Half-Dragon Sphinx
Imagine a great cat with the cruel countenance of a drow and the temper of a dragon, then make it a madcap genius. We promise you that Orsephia is worse.

Large 6th level spoiler [dragon]
Initiative +10

Claws +11 vs. AC (2 attacks)—20 damage.
Natural 16+: Orsephia can make a bite attack against the target or another creature engaged with her as a free action.

[Special trigger] Bite +11 vs. AC—15 damage.

C: Acid breath +11 vs. PD (1d3 nearby enemies)—15 acid damage, and 5 ongoing acid damage.
Miss: 10 acid damage.

R: Maddening Riddle +11 vs. MD—20 psychic damage.
Natural even hit: The target is stunned until the end of Orsephia’s next turn.
Natural odd hit: The target is confused (save ends).

Flier: Orsephia is a competent flier who uses the vaulted ceiling in her chamber to her advantage if forced to fight.

Intermittent breath: Orsephia can use acid breath twice per battle, but never two turns in a row.

Resist acid 12+: When an acid attack targets this creature, the attacker must roll a natural 12+ on the attack roll or it only deals half damage.

AC 22
PD 17
MD 19
HP 180

13th Age: Unleash the Dragon

Beware The Blackener Of Bright Waters, For She Is Come Again
Rumors of death move like a plague through the Crannogtowns of the Great Swamp—of ranger patrols mysteriously disappearing on routine scouting missions, of a winged shadow that blots out the midday sun, and of entire villages slaughtered, their homes left burning and the victims’ flesh melted from their bones. All evidence gathered from the sites of these massacres points to the heart of the Great Swamp, where an ancient and primitive tribe of lizardmen have ruled from an abandoned human temple for centuries on end. The Crannogtowns’ protectors, the Stormhammer Rangers, warn that horrid half-dragon monstrosities still stalk the bogs and travelers would do well to stay away from the inner swamp. Yet the killing and the carnage continue, and the people of the Crannogs plead for heroes to aid them now as they did in days long forgotten. Are you up to the challenge?

Reign Of Ruin is the first full-length adventure module in Jon Brazer Enterprises’ Deadly Delves product line, and is compatible with the ENnie-award winning 13th Age Roleplaying Game. This adventure is designed to challenge five 4th-level PCs like no other content has to date. Inside this volume, you’ll find:

  • More than 20 fully-developed new monsters for your 13th Age campaign
  • Eight new traps and eight new magic items waiting to be discovered, ranging from the entertaining to the awe-inspiring
  • Full-color maps of a Crannogtown village, as well as five floors of a terrifying temple dungeon
  • Story hooks that help GMs tie their players’ characters directly into the adventure using the Icon system
  • Specialized advice on playing a cunning black dragon against a group of PCs in a dangerous game of cat and mouse
  • Optional rules for using tactical terrain in select encounters
  • Enough content to take five 4th-level PCs from the Adventurer to Champion tier of play, with ideas to extend the story even further once you’re done exploring the temple

Dangers Unknown. Treasures Untold. Adventure Awaits.
