Season 7 is Dead! Long Live Season 7!

August 6, 2016 under Uncategorized

GenCon is in full swing, but you know what? West Virginia Pathfinder is, too. Join us at the Rifleman this Sunday at 1:00pm for a selection of scenarios, including one of several Season 7 finales that will give insight into the upcoming seeker arc, All for Immortality.

For our low-tier scenario, Rich will be running #6-22: Out of Anarchy, which has Pathfinders smuggling into Pezzack, Cheliax to rescue an important informant. Dark Archive and Liberty’s Edge characters levels 1-5 will likely be interested in this adventure…

For our high-tier, I’ll be running #7-28: Ageless Ambitions, where Pathfinders confront the man responsible for the brazen attack on the Pathfinder Society lodge in Absalom. If your level 7-11 character is a member of the Sovereign Court or you’ve played #7-98: Serpent’s Rise (please bring that chronicle!), you’re in for a treat… Please note… the text message mistakenly labeled this scenario with the wrong title…

For our Core table, Sarah will be running #7: Among the Living, where characters level 1-7 will get their opera on in the capital of Taldor, Oparra (I see what they did there…).

Introducing the Elemental Races

August 3, 2016 under Uncategorized

As Andrew alluded to earlier this week, with the start of Season 8, four new races have been made available for open play that were previously restricted to those with the appropriate boon: Ifrits, Oreads, Sylphs, and Undines. To be able to play these non-Core races, in addition to the still-legal Kitsune, Nagaji, Tengu, and Wayang races, you will need access to the Advanced Race Guide.

The four “elemental races” (let’s call them ER’s for short) have a lot in common. For starters, much like the previously-legal Aasimars and Tieflings, the ER’s are Outsider (native)… keep this in mind with spells that have “person” in the name, because combat-enders like Hold Person and buffs like Enlarge Person aren’t going to work. Also like Aasimars and Tieflings, all of the ER’s come with Darkvision 60′ standard and some form of elemental resistance centered around their respective element. From there, things change a little bit.

Ifrit Oread Sylph Undine
Type Outsider (native) Outsider (native) Outsider (native) Outsider (native)
Size Medium Medium Medium Medium
Base Speed Normal Slow Normal Normal
Ability Bonuses +2 Dex, +2 Cha +2 Str, +2 Wis +2 Dex, +2 Int +2 Dex, +2 Wis
Ability Penalties -2 Wis -2 Cha -2 Con -2 Str
Resistances Fire 5 Acid 5 Electricity 5 Cold 5
Spell-Like Abilities Burning Hands 1/day Magic Stone 1/day Feather Fall 1/day Hydraulic Push 1/day
Elemental Affinity Fire Earth Air Water

So, what is “Elemental Affinity”? Well, pretty cool if you’re thinking about a Cleric, Druid, or Sorcerer build. If your character has a domain that matches their elemental affinity, they can use that domain’s powers and spells at +1 caster level. If your character has an elemental bloodline that matches their affinity, their Charisma score is treated as 2 points higher for all Sorcerer spells and class abilities.

If you’re not interested in spell casting, there are alternating race traits that replace the elemental affinity for other bonuses, as well as any of the other basic racial traits you may not be interested in.

So, who has some interesting build ideas they would like to share that incorporate the new races?
