Pathfinder: Samsaran Art

I know I am a bit late in finishing the previews for Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Samsarans, but I wanted to make sure that these were posted. The artwork within Advanced Samsarans is our most inclusive artwork yet. With transgender people so rarely represented in artwork, we made sure to include a transman and transwoman in our artwork. Also we noticed a distinct lack of heroic females that are overweight so we thought we would take the opportunity to have an incredibly intelligent woman as a hero as well. And for those that love beefcake men, we have a muscular man for eye candy.

We hope you enjoy these images as much as we do.

Pathfinder: Spells from Another Life

August 13, 2015 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced SamsaransAll week long we are showing off the samsaran race and racial options in the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Samsarans. Monday we shared with you the racial traits. Yesterday we shared the Timeless Warden archetype. Today we are sharing with you some of the spells that are well known to samsarans.

Before we share with you some of the spell inside, there is one aspect of samsarans that we have not delved too deep into as of yet when discussing this race. When a samsaran is reborn, the gender of the previous incarnation has no influence of the gender of this life. However familiar habits of previous incarnations can show through each generation. So it is hardly uncommon for a samsaran who was male for the past several generations to be born biologically a woman but dresses and acts in a way consistent with her male previous incarnations, or vice versa. This can be overtly obvious or non-existent. How your character chooses to identify his or her gender, regardless of the character’s birth, is up to you. With that in mind, check out these spells.

Beneath the Flesh
School transmutation (polymorph); Level alchemist/investigator 1, arcanist/sorcerer/wizard 1, bard/skald 1, cleric/oracle/warpriest 1, inquisitor 1, paladin 1, shaman 1, witch 1
Casting Time 1 round
Components V, S
Range touch
Target humanoid touched
Duration 1 hour/level
Saving Throw Will negates (harmless); Spell Resistance no
The touched humanoid’s features alter, revealing what is in the creature’s soul. A humanoid that brings wanton death and destruction might appear more gaunt, almost skeletal, while an honest person that fights for peace and justice would become brighter, almost shining, taking on an angelic appearance. The target may switch genders or take on the physical characteristics of a different race, without changing size, racial abilities or the target’s racial subtype. The eyes, being the windows to the soul, do not alter. This spell also gives the target a +4 enhancement bonus to Diplomacy or Intimidate checks for the duration

Past-Life Resurgence
School
divination; Level alchemist/investigator 2, bard/skald 2, cleric/oracle/warpriest 2, druid/hunter 2, shaman 2, witch 2
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range touch
Target creature touched
Duration 10 minutes/level
Saving Throw Will (harmless); Spell Resistance yes (harmless)
You allow the target to call upon the knowledge of a past life for a brief period of time. They gain a +4 insight bonus to all Knowledge and Profession checks for the duration of the spell.

Speak with Past Lives
School
divination; Level arcanist/sorcerer/wizard 3, cleric/oracle/warpriest 3
Casting Time 10 minutes
Components V,S,F (a relic from a previous life)
Target self
Duration 24 hours
The caster communes with his past lives, gaining a general sense of how his activities will go (as an augury spell) in the next 24 hours.
In addition, for the duration of the spell, the caster gains a +2 competence bonus on all Knowledge skill checks and can make such checks untrained. He may also apply a +10 competence bonus to any single skill check during the spell’s duration, but doing so automatically ends the spell.

Pathfinder: Enlightenment by Nature

August 12, 2015 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Samsarans All week long, we are looking at the new options in the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Samsarans. Monday we looked at the racial traits. Today we are sharing with you one of the class archetypes: the timeless warden.

Druids possess a deep connection with nature. Samsaran druids however find this connection to be more important than being reborn into the next generation. These druids become eternal guardians of the wild places, never dying and starting life anew.

Timeless Warden

Associated Class: druid
Associated Race: samsaran
Replaced Abilities: nature sense, spontaneous casting, wild empathy, woodland stride, resist nature’s lure, wild shape, venom immunity, a thousand faces, timeless body
Class Skills: A timeless warden does not gain Climb or Swim as class skills, but she adds Diplomacy, Disguise, Sense Motive, and Stealth to her list of class skills.
Spontaneous Domain Casting: A timeless warden can channel stored spell energy into domain spells that she has not prepared ahead of time. She can “lose” a prepared spell in order to cast any domain spell of the same level or lower.
Ancient Knowledge (Ex): Even young timeless wardens have a bounty of knowledge of the world around them, which they attribute to memories of past lives. A timeless warden adds 1/2 her class level (minimum +1) to all Knowledge skill checks, and may make all such checks untrained.
Nature Bond (Ex): A timeless warden may not choose an animal companion, and must choose a domain from the following domains not normally available to druids: Death, Healing, or Repose. Alternatively, the timeless warden can select one of the following subdomains APG: Ancestors, Restoration, Souls, or Undead.
Mysterious Stranger (Ex): Knowing that the secrets of reincarnation are jealously sought by those seeking immortality, the timeless warden strives to remain an enigma. Beginning at 2nd level, she adds 1/2 her class level to the DC of Diplomacy, Sense Motive, and Knowledge checks made to learn about her.
Channel Energy (Su): At 4th level, a timeless warden gains the ability to channel energy as a cleric, using her druid level as her effective cleric level. A good timeless warden channels positive energy, while an evil timeless warden channels negative energy. A neutral timeless warden must choose whether she channels positive or negative energy upon gaining this ability. Once this choice is made, it cannot be reversed. Any timeless warden can channel energy a number of times per day equal to 3 + her Charisma modifier. Though timeless wardens can take most feats that alter their channel energy ability, they cannot take the Alignment Channel feat or any feat that requires it as a prerequisite.
Malleable Soul (Ex): Once she reaches 4th level, a timeless warden has taken the first step toward true immortality. She can no longer be affected by raise dead, resurrection, or true resurrection, but when subject to a reincarnate spell or when reincarnated through some other way, such as her many lives ability (see below), she suffers no negative levels upon returning to life and may return as any race of her choice.
Many Lives (Ex): A timeless warden of 9th level has mastered her own death and attains a limited form of immortality, so that she might guard the world eternally. If she is ever killed, she may automatically reincarnate (as the spell) 1 day later. The timeless warden appears in a safe location within 1 mile of her body. At will for the next 7 days, she can sense the presence of her remains as if using locate object as a spell-like ability. If she is killed during these 7 days, she remains dead and does not reincarnate. The many lives ability does not function if the timeless warden is slain by a death effect.
Cyclical Mastery: At 13th level, a timeless warden can select another domain or subdomain from those available to her through her nature bond.
Beyond Time (Su): Beginning at 15th level, a timeless warden has gained mastery over her life force as she previously gained mastery over her death. She can change her apparent age and appearance at will, as if using the threefold aspect APG spell.

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.

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans is part of the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Subscription. Purchasing the subscription now gets you Advanced Merfolk, Advanced Wyvarans, Advanced Changelings, Advanced Catfolk, Advanced Tengu, and Advanced Favored Class Options as well as Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Elans the moment it is completed and 6 more races released throughout 2015 plus the upcoming Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Compendium when it is finished.
