Optionsmas is Neigh: Chasing the Setting Sun Edition

We are approaching the end of 1e’s print-run, and I realize I’m going to miss chasing new Additional Resources updates for a while. Oh, I understand 2e will have them too! I just don’t expect much from July until at least December in terms of new content…of course, analyzing everything we have going for us in 2e is going to be its own brand of exciting! Talking about exciting, Heroes of Golarion is one of the best Player Companions ever published, and gives us lots of new exciting character options I can’t wait to explore!

Optionsmas is Neigh: Seattle Edition!

I’m finally moved into my new condo with a wonderful view of the greater Seattle Metro area and wouldn’t you know it: we have ourselves an Additional Resources update! Thanks for the house warming gift, Paizo! I’m going to try a different format evaluating the two primary updates this time around, since we only have two (amazing) books this time around.

Martial Artist’s Handbook:

  • Archetypes: The archetypes in the book are legal for play. Equipment: The equipment and magic items in this book are legal for play except handwraps, infested bandages, and split-blade sword. Feats: The feats in this book are legal for play except Change of Heart, Octopus Focus, Octopus Style, and Octopus Thrash. Misc.: The advanced ninja tricks, ki powers, kineticist infusions, ninja tricks, slayer talents, style strikes, and weapon tricks in this book are legal for play except prognostication, throat crush, and true prognostication.

Optionsmas is Neigh: Cast Haste on the Webteam Edition!

Can you believe we get two AR updates in two weeks? Those handsome folks in the Additional Resources team clearly deserve a round of applause. In all seriousness, everyone should take the opportunity to thank our Organized Play Coordinator(s) and/or the Paizo web team for all these new toys we get to unwrap early. So let’s take a minute to shake the boxes under the trees and ready our adamantine scissors incase the boxes fight back…and take a minute to moan the loss of one particularly hyped archetype.

Adventure Paths:

    • The scant material in the first five books of Return of the Runelords are all legal now. There is a Familiar, some Ashava information, an Oozeclot unguent and an item called the Shadow Stylus.
