Pathfinder: Elans in Art

July 10, 2015 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans (PFRPG)Today being Friday, we wanted to just show off the art inside Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans. This week, you’ve seen elan racial traits, the Ratha priest slayer archetype, three rogue talents, and a few psionic powers. We wanted to end the week with a bit of fun.

You’ve already seen Lindiwe, our signature psychic warrior that graces our cover. She is a master of puzzles and lore, and more than adept at splitting skulls with your strong axe. She is not the only elan presented in this book. Here are four more images of elans you will find in this book.

July 9, 2015 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans (PFRPG)Next week sees the release of the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans and all week long we are showing off some of what is inside. We already shared the elan racial traits, an archetype for the psychic warrior, and some rogue talents. Today, we are sharing with some new powers that can be used by elans, or any other psionic-capable character.

Bad reference jokes in the this post’s title aside, psionic classes need powers and some of them are more used by elans than other races. The Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans includes five new psionic powers. Three of these new power are below for your enjoyment and for you to incorporate into your game right away. We hope you enjoy them.

Pathfinder: Elans in Core Classes

July 8, 2015 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans (PFRPG) The Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans comes out soon. We already shared the elan racial traits and the Ratha priest slayer archetype for the psychic warrior class. Today we are taking a look at three rogue talents that an elan can take.

Not all elans take a hard core psionic class. Some choose a class from the core book or one of the other books. So we made some psionic options to add an elan flare to the class. Read three of of the rogue talents in the book below. Advanced Elans also has a new cleric domain, a fighter archetype and more.

Force of Personality (Su): A rogue with this talent may influence interactions through sheer force of personality. When he expends his psionic focus he gains a +1d6 bonus to a single Bluff, Diplomacy, or Intimidate check.

Internal Discipline (Ex): Once per day, the rogue can roll two dice while making an Autohypnosis check, and take the better result. She must choose to use this talent before making the Autohypnosis check. A rogue can use this ability one additional time per day for every five rogue levels she possesses.

Psionic Weapon Training (Su): A rogue with this talent gains Psionic Weapon (UP) as a bonus feat.

Pathfinder: Elans Make Excellent Priest Slayers

July 7, 2015 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans (PFRPG) The Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans comes out soon. We already shared the elan racial traits. Today we are sharing with you one of the archetypes central to this race, the Ratha priest slayer.

The Ratha are a group of elans that believe that the worship of a deity is dangerous and should be ended. Their priest slayers, as their name would imply, are prepared to use violence to accomplish their ends. Most startling to other elans, they are willing to kill their own kind if they should worship a deity. Since elans are a race created by non-deities, worshipping a deity is an anathema to the Ratha and should be stopped.

This organization can be used as protagonists, antagonists, and as uneasy allies. Having a ratha priest slayer in your group will be most handy against infernal and demonic deities that want to enslave or zombify the living. They also work great as antagonists if the players are assisting a good-aligned deity in their quest to stop evil, especially if that evil lacks a strong connection to a deity. At the same time, if both good and evil are strongly connected to a deity, a Ratha might be a force for chaos, helping both sides take out each other and having the priest slayers clean up whomever is still standing when the fighting is done.

Ratha Priest Slayer

Associated Class: psychic warrior
Associated Race: elan
Replaced Abilities: bonus feat (1st, 2nd, and 5th levels), expanded path (3rd level only), path skill (4th level only)
Psionic Feats: The Ratha priest slayer gains the Wild Talent (UP) feat and his choice of Psionic Shot (UP), or Psionic Weapon (UP) as bonus feats at first level. He must meet any prerequisites for the feat selected.
Hampered Divine Conduit (Su): At 2nd level, the Ratha priest slayer adds half his psychic warrior level to the DC of all concentration checks made by divine spellcasters that the he threatens.
Mind Armor (Ps): At 3rd level, the Ratha priest slayer gains mind armor as a psi-like ability. When maintaining psionic focus, the priest slayer gains a +2 enhancement bonus to armor class and a +2 resistance bonus to all saving throws against divine spells and effects. These bonuses increase by +1 every four ratha priest slayer levels thereafter. This ability does not stack with inertial armor or any source that grants an enhancement bonus to AC.
Infectious Doubt (Su): At 4th level, the Ratha priest slayer can disrupt a divine spellcaster’s tie to his deity. After the priest slayer confirms a critical hit against a divine spellcaster, that target must make a Will save (DC 10 + damage dealt). On a failed save, the target must succeed on a concentration check (DC 10 + damage dealt) when attempting to cast divine spells for a number of rounds equal to one-third the priest slayer’s level. A failed Concentration check means the divine spellcaster loses the spell. At 10th level, the DCs for both the Will save and the concentration check increase to 15 + damage dealt.
Shaken Faith (Su): At 5th level, the priest slayer’s touch can shake the faith of the devout. As a melee touch attack, he can inflict Wisdom damage equal to 1d4 + 1 per every four levels he possesses. A successful Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 the priest slayer’s level + his Wisdom modifier) reduces this damage by half. The priest slayer can use this ability once per day. At 10th level and every five levels thereafter, he gains an additional daily use of this ability. A creature targeted by this ability is immune to shaken faith for 24 hours.

Pathfinder: An Elan Explosion

July 6, 2015 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans (PFRPG)We’re putting the finishing touches on Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans right now and just thought we would share with you just what exactly is an elan.
First off, the elan race was not published by Paizo for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, but by Dreamscarred Press in Ultimate Psionics. They come from the 3.5 psionics rules and have been updated by Dreamscarred along with the rest of that rules subset. If you have not checked them out yet, I highly recommend you give them a look as they are faithful update and are well balanced.

As far as the race itself, elans are a secret cabal of people that have been infused with psionic energy and can live forever, barring disease or a violent death. They appear slightly off from a normal human, practically bursting with magical energy.

At their core, these are psionic being that chose a life of psionic, so this supplement is filled with psionic options for your game play, particularly flavored for the elan race. If you are a fan of psionics, this is a supplement that you will want to check out.
Today we are sharing the elan racial traits. Stay tuned to JonBrazer.com all week for more details of what is inside fantastic racial supplement.

Elan Racial Traits

+2 to One Ability Score: Elans gain a +2 bonus to one ability score chosen at creation to represent their varied nature.
Aberrant Blood: Elans are humanoids with the aberrant subtype.
Medium: Elan are Medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size.
Normal Speed: Elans have a base speed of 30 feet.
Aberrant Nature: Although human in appearance, elans are seen as slightly “off” by non-elans. They suffer a –1 penalty to Charisma-based skill checks when dealing with non-elans.
Naturally Psionic: Elans gain the Wild Talent (UP) feat as a bonus feat at 1st level. If an elan takes levels in a psionic class, she instead gains the Psionic Talent (UP) feat.
Resistance (Su): Elans can use psionic energy to increase their resistance to various forms of attack. As an immediate action, an elan can spend 1 power point to gain a +4 racial bonus on saving throws until the beginning of her next action.
Resilience (Su): When an elan takes damage, she can spend power points to reduce its severity. As an immediate action, she can reduce the damage he is about to take by 2 hit points for every 1 power point he spends.
Repletion (Su): An elan can sustain her body without need of food or water. If she spends 1 power point, an elan does not need to eat or drink for 24 hours.
Psionic Aptitude: When an elan takes a level in a favored class, she can choose to gain an additional power point instead of a hit point or skill point.
Languages: Elans begin play speaking Common. Elans with high Intelligence scores can choose any languages they want (except secret languages, such as Druidic).
