As you are gearing up for Gen Con, getting ready the year pilgrimage to Indianapolis, I am sad to say that JBE will not be attending this year. That, however, does not mean that you should be sad because we just relaunched our Not Going to Gen Con Sale. This year, it is all about the print books.
That’s right, this sale is on books you can hold in your two hands. Those that love the feel of the covers, the smell of paper, the sight of seeing the book on your shelf, and the ability to make notes in the margins, this sale is for you. You can grab these books for a nice discount.
How much of a discount you ask? Easy. All of our print books that are more than $10 are $5 off. If the book is $10 or less, it is $2 off. That simple. And this is on ALL of our print books, even the one we released only a few short months ago. So if there is a new release you wanted and you wanted it in print, now is your chance to pick it. Do you want to read it now? Well that is even easier. For $2 more, you can get the PDF. This means you can devour it now and still have the print book on your shelf.
This sale is exclusively at DriveThruRPG and RPGNow. So hurry over there and order your books today. This sale will not last long. Share this sale with your friends on Facebook and Twitter as well as with your regular gaming group. I am sure they will want these books in their hands as well.
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.
I know a number of people have been looking forward to having the Book of Heroic Races Compendium in their hands as opposed to on a computer screen or on a tablet. Well that is available to you now. Over the weekend, I approved the print version and it is now available at DriveThruRPG/RPGNow. Pretty soon, we will have copies available at Paizo.com. In print, this book is 116 pages of pure awesome. If you like races that are outside the standard elves and dwarves, this book is for your.
This 116-page print book features:
8 playable races, balanced with the Pathfinder Core Rulebook races
30 class archetypes and class options and 4 prestige classes
46 feats, 14 spells, 16 magic items, and 5 artifacts
Favored class options for all races included as well as 11 races from the Advanced Race Guide
The very existence of half-faerie dragons brings a confused look to the faces of most enlightened sages and a blush to those of even the worldliest adventurers. Though the size difference between faerie dragons and most humanoids alone makes things awkward at best, half-dragons clearly descended from faerie dragons. They are a whimsical race of those derived from the rare physical or magical union of faerie dragons and one of any number of humanoid races such as humans or elves, the vast majority of their kind are the children of other half-faerie dragons. They have a propensity to “borrow” things without the owner’s permission as well as use their magical prowess to produce effects that are visually pleasing but have little practical use. They love apples and are said to grant wishes (although that last bit may not be entirely true). But no matter what, half-faerie dragons want to experience the moment and want to know about the experience of something as much as the facts.
Half-Faerie Dragon Racial Traits
Half-faerie dragons have the following racial traits. +2 Dexterity, +2 Intelligence, +2 Charisma, –2 Constitution, –2 Wisdom: Half-faerie dragons are charismatic creatures, quick in both body and mind, but they suffer from distinctly fragile bodies and a lack of restraint and common sense. Humanoid: Half-faerie dragons are humanoids with the draconic subtype. Slow Speed: Half-faerie dragons have a base speed of 20 feet. Small: Half-faerie dragons are Small creatures and gain a +1 size bonus to their AC, a +1 size bonus on attack rolls, a –1 penalty on their combat maneuver checks and to CMD, and a +4 size bonus on Stealth checks. Butterfly Wings (Ex): Half-faerie dragons possess fully functional butterfly-like wings just like true faerie dragons. Unlike their draconic ancestors, they cannot actually fly because of their frame and size. They are, however, capable of slowing
their descent during a fall and using their wings to help them jump and balance, as well as control themselves while flying magically, granting them a +2 racial bonus on Acrobatics and Fly checks. Darkvision: Half-faerie dragons can see in the dark up to 60 feet. Arcane Whimsy (Sp): Half-faerie dragons can use prestidigitation as a spell-like ability a number of times per day equal to their Charisma modifier. The caster level for this ability equals the half-faerie dragon’s character level. Breath Weapon (Su): Once per day, a half-faerie dragon can exhale a cloud of euphoric gas in a 10-foot cone. Creatures within the cone suffer euphoria for 1d6 rounds. Creatures affected by euphoria are staggered, sickened, and immune to fear effects for the duration. A Fortitude save (DC 10 + half the half-faerie dragon’s class level + the half-faerie dragon’s Constitution modifier) negates this effect. Draconic Resistance: Half-faerie dragons gain a +2 racial saving throw bonus against paralysis and sleep effects. Languages: Half-faerie dragons begin play speaking Common and Draconic. Half-faerie dragons with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: Dwarven, Elven, Gnome, Goblin, Halfling, Orc, and Sylvan.
A new day calls for a new kind of hero. The Book of Heroic Races brings you new and balanced races to play in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Half-faerie dragons, the scions of faerie dragons and humans, combine light-hearted mayhem and good-natured adventuring into one unforgettable race. With their euphoric breath weapons and songs in their hearts, this race proves true in your hands.
This 29-page PDF written by Todd Stewart details the half-faerie dragon race, their unique magical arts, and their whimsical class options. This download will be updated to include the Hero Lab file for easy integration into your game. Download this unique race to enhance your world and your game.
Later this week we will be releasing Book of Heroic Races: Half-Faerie Dragons, written by Todd Stewart. We are really excited to tell you all about this but for today, we are going to show off the artwork. These are some of the images from inside this new race supplement. Normally JBE is very conscious of our art, but for this, the race’s whimsical nature worked well with a more scantly clad and highly athletic character. As such, we decided we should have both genders dressed in such a fashion.
Stay tuned tomorrow to read some of the great character options presented inside.
