July 28, 2015 Leave a comment

FW Tsokabar Subsector 600Empty, but not devoid of life, Tsokabar Subsector lacks development. It does not attract soft cityfolk but rather those determined to make a better life for themselves. Those that dare to prospect in this Zhodani subsector could become incredibly wealthy by striking the right claim or lose it all should the Consulate order an operation closed. Will you make the difference between a successful colony or an abandoned ruin? Will you find riches that others before have missed? Will you find things long forgotten and reconnect separated families? Only you can decide.

Foreven Worlds: Tsokabar Subsector is an 13 page supplement for Traveller. Inside you will find:

  • intricate details for 7 worlds of this subsector and the people that make their way in this sparsely-populated region of Zhodani space,
  • an overview of all the other planets in the subsector,
  • a detailed, full-color map of the subsector,
  • and plot hooks for you to create your own campaign.

What destiny lies in your hands?

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: Why You Should Grab Monsters of Porphyra Right Now

June 30, 2015 Leave a comment

Monsters of Porphyra (PFRPG) I just want to take a moment to highlight a Pathfinder book I enjoy a whole lot. Previously, I talked about Ultimate Psionics from Dreamscarred Press. Today I want to share with you Monsters of Porphyra.

If you like monster books as much as me, and I love me a good monster book, you owe it to yourself to pick up Monsters of Porphyra. This book is chocked full of over 130 monsters for your game. Between the full color art and the downright fun descriptions, this is a monster book you will you enjoy in your game. From low level monsters like the carnage beetle to high level monsters like the ancient magi dragon, there are monsters here for your game, no matter what level you are playing. Make up an ogrillon, half orc-half ogre, druid and give him a mawgriff, a giraffe-like creature, as an animal companion. Give your villain a transforming longship that yells, “Decepticonstructs! Attack!” Ever wanted a vampiric dragon in your game? Here’s your chance. This monster has everything, from interesting plant monsters and oozes to undead that will just gross out your players.

The best part of this is that Purple Duck Games is having a Half Off Sale right now. So pick up this book and may others at a steal of a price. Get class related books like Barbarians of Porphyra or adventures like Purple Mountain V: The Descent or psionics compatible books like Heroes of the Fenian Triarchy, or classics like Paths of Power right now at an amazing price.

[Pathfinder] The Wings of Combat

April 29, 2015 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced WyvaransAll week long we are sharing with you some of our favorite parts of the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Wyvarans for Pathfinder. Previously we shared their racial stats and two archetypes. Today, we are posting a few of the combat feats a wyvaran can take that are exclusive to the race. These feats reveal a different fighting style than most races, emblematic of their draconic heritage. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Deadly Diver (Combat)
When you dive, you usually connect, one way or the other.
Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +1, wyvaran
Benefit: When you perform a charge while flying and you miss on your attack, you may make another attack roll. If the attack is successful you deal 1d4 + your Strength bonus of bludgeoning damage to the target as you bodily connect with your target. This attack does not provoke an attack of opportunity.

Gnome Hunter (Combat)
You have taken on a small measure of the racial enmity that kobolds feel.
Prerequisite: Wyvaran
Benefit: You gain a +1 racial bonus on attack rolls and a +2 racial bonus on damage rolls against gnomes.

Telling Tail (Combat)
You are more adept at using your tail in combat.
Prerequisite: Wyvaran
Benefit: You may use your slapping tail as a primary natural attack.
Normal: You may only use your slapping tail to make attacks of opportunity.

Wing Bash (Combat)
Your strong wings support you in combat.
Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +1, wyvaran
