Now that PaizoCon is over, its time for us to get back to work. Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Merfolk is next up on our list. Like I said before, it was suppose to come out this month, but PaizoCon prep pushed it back until June. But we are hard at work on it. In the meantime, check out the awesome artwork by Brian Brinlee that arrived earlier this month for it.
We’ve got images for a merfolk time thief, sorcerer, cleric, and barbarian, so reverse alphabetical order. We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoy bringing them to you.
Richard and I will be leaving for PaizoCon soon. While we are away, you Pathfinder game masters can grab yourselves some adventures or the players can get a new race all for 25% off the regular price during our PaizoCon Sale. The Book of Heroic Races Compendium gives you 117 pages of some exciting races to play. Between the plant-like seedlings to the whimsical half-faerie dragons to the death-touched reapers, these races and more will give you flavorful and enjoyable races far beyond the standard elves and dwarves.
Game masters will love the four adventures we have on sale. Start at 1st level with the Doom of the Sky Sword where your characters can either think or fight their way through the threats facing them. Continue their journey with Rescue from Tyrkaven where the adventurers awaken an ancient evil while getting back captured townsfolk. When they reach 7th-level, have the adventurers face off against a dragon bent on conquest, her lizardfolk army and her horde of half-dragon in the Reign of Ruin. Or if you are in an Egyptian-themed adventure path, be sure to pick up Quests of the Sands for when your adventurers decide to go off in a different direction.
Just to let everyone know there is going to be a delay with Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Merfolk. Short of the long, we are finishing up converting one of our adventures to another system and it is going to be released Tuesday. Then I will be attending a friend’s wedding and then comes PaizoCon. I just don’t have enough time to finish it. It will be coming sometime in June.
Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Wyvarans comes out tomorrow, but if you are a Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Series subscriber, you got access to the new release last night. This being, what is essentially, a new race, we really hope you enjoy the different feel of this race in your game.
Last week we posted two archetypes, but this being a race only found in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Bestiary 4 and in the back of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Advanced Race Guide as an example of what you can do with the race builder rules, I feel we should give the racial traits so you can play this race right away. So that is today’s preview, along with a few of the alternate racial traits.
Wyvaran Racial Traits
Wyvaran have the following racial traits.
+2 Dexterity, –2 Intelligence, +2 Wisdom: Wyvarans have a reptilian grace and a strong will, but they tend to be a little dimwitted.
Normal Speed: Wyvarans have a base speed of 30 feet.
Flight: Wyvarans have dragon-like wings that grant them a fly speed of 30 feet with clumsy maneuverability.
Slapping Tail (Ex): Wyvarans have a tail attack they can only use when making attacks of opportunity. This slapping tail attack deals 1d8 points of damage plus the wyvaran’s Strength modifier.

Low-Light Vision: Wyvarans have low-light vision.
Languages: Wyvarans speak Common and Draconic. A wyvaran with a high Intelligence score can choose from the following: Dwarven, Elven, Gnome, Goblin, and Orc.
Alternate Racial Traits
Goldhunter: Wyvarans with this racial trait can smell the sweet taste of treasure in the air. They have the scent ability. This racial trait replaces the darkvision and lowlight vision traits.
Kobold Kin: Some wyvarans favor their kobold heritage. They qualify for any feat that has the kobold prerequisite. These wyvarans gain a +2 racial bonus on Craft (trapmaking), Perception, and Profession (miner) checks. Craft (traps) and Stealth are always class skills for these wyvarans. Wyvarans with this alternate racial trait can be any color of dragon, not just blue. This racial trait replaces low-light vision.
Stormchild: Wyvarans with this ability can trace their bloodline back to blessed Dohinin. They gain fast healing 2 for 1 round anytime they take electricity damage. Wyvarans can heal up to 2 hit points per level per day with this ability, after which it ceases to function. This replaces the slapping tail trait.
