Pathfinder 1e: What Kinds of Products Do You Want For Your Game?

Vote in the poll below. If you have something specific in mind or if you can’t see the poll, leave a comment below.

Before we talk more about the poll, check out our existing Pathfinder 1e products at the JBE Shop, DriveThruRPG, and the Open Gaming Store while they are up to 40% off their regular price. This sale won’t last much longer, so grab these titles now.

EDIT: Because we can’t seem to allow multiple option voting (to many options, I guess), I allowed repeat voting. So you can vote in the poll as many times as you want. I ask that you don’t vote for the same option more than once; it will make the results less accurate. So let us know all the options you want.

5e: Path of the Pyrorager

It has been a while since we talked much about Fifth Edition. This is a game we at the “office” love and enjoy regularly. We have several 5e projects in the works, but we’re not ready to talk about them further at this time.

What we do want to talk about is the Book of Heroes: Fearless Barbarian Paths. We released this one at the end of last year, but did not talk about it nearly as much as we would have liked. We did share with you the Path of the Giant and the Path of the War Avatar. Today I would like to share with you my personal favorite of the supplement: Path of the Pyrorager.

We shared with you a very early version of this barbarian path back in 2017, but we decided on a number of improvements to it. This is a chance for you to see how our products can change during the development process. We hope you enjoy this barbarian path in your 5e game.

Download Book of Heroes: Fearless Barbarian Paths today at the JBE Shop today. You can also find it at DriveThruRPG and the Open Gaming Store.

Path of the Pyrorager

While some barbarians describe themselves as burning with anger, the pyrorager literally catches on fire when they fly into a frenzy. Some pyroragers claim they descend from an ancient red dragon. Many scholars doubt the validity of that claim, but only voice such doubts when they are well out of earshot of any pyroragers.

Burning Fury

When you choose this path at 3rd level, your arms and weapons erupt into flames when you rage. Your melee weapon attacks deal an extra 1d6 points of fire damage when raging. This damage counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage. This damage increases to 2d6 at 6th level, 3d6 at 10th level, and 4d6 at 14th level. This damage does not stack with spells or weapons that deal additional fire damage, such as a flame tongue weapon. When your rage ends, you suffer one level of exhaustion (as described in Appendix A of the PHB).

Fire Speaker

Also at 3rd level, you become proficient with the Ignan language.

Flame Body

Starting at 6th level, fire runs through your veins, granting you resistance to fire damage. At 14th level, you are immune to fire damage and are resistant to cold damage.

Fiery Allies

Upon reaching 10th level, you gain advantage on all Charisma checks when conversing with elementals that speak Ignan.

Fire Breath

Beginning at 14th level, you gain the ability to vomit forth flames. All creatures in a 30-foot line take 3d6 points of fire damage on a failed Dexterity save (DC equal to 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier). A successful save reduces this damage by half. Once used, you cannot use this ability again until you complete a short or long rest.

5e: Path of the War Avatar

After we released our first supplement of subclasses for Fifth Edition covering the fighter, we asked you over on our Facebook page and at Twitter which classes you want to see more subclasses for. One of those classes that got quite a bit of comments on was the barbarian. Well you asked for it and we delivered. We are working on our next supplement for 5e being the Book of Heroes: Fearless Barbarian Paths.

Today we are showing off one of those barbarian paths: the Path of the War Avatar. The original inspiration for this path comes from none other than Robert E Howards. It is said that he believed that the spirit of Conan come into his body when he was writing down those very tales. From there, the idea of having a barbarian filled with the piece of the god of war seemed almost poetic. So raise a glass to Howard and enjoy this barbarian path.

Path of the War Avatar

You do not describe your rage as simple anger, but as a blessing from a god of war. You feel the connection to that divine entity radiating through you, causing you to pulse with divine energy as you battle.

War Strike

When you choose this path at 3rd level, you gain the ability to attack more often. After using the Attack action, you can make another weapon attack as a bonus action, gaining your full ability modifier to the damage roll. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier (minimum of once). You regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest.

Raging Strike

Starting at 6th level, you are divinely gifted with knowing where the perfect strike should land. The first Attack action you make after entering a rage receives a +10 bonus to the roll.

Divine Representative

Upon reaching 10th level, your connection to your deity gives you advantage on all Charisma checks made when conversing with celestials and fiends.

War Avatar Body

At 14th level, choose one of the following damage types: bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage. You gain resistance against all nonmagical weapons that deal the chosen damage type.

Pathfinder: New Wyvaran Archetypes

We are currently finishing up Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Wyvarans. While you are waiting for the most detail this race has ever been given, you can enjoy these two class archetypes.

Regulator
There are checks and balances in every society. When wyvaran society experiences a system shock, like a crime against property rights or the taking of wyvaran life, then the regulators are called in. They re-balance the scales of justice and deliver a reckoning to the offending party.
Associated Class: ranger
Associated Race: wyvaran
Associated Alignment: any lawful.
Replaced Abilities: Wild empathy, hunter’s bond, favored enemy (all but 1st level).
Modified Abilities: Class skills, favored enemy (1st level only)
Class Skills: A regulator gains Sense Motive as a class skill in addition to the other class skills.
Sound Judgment (Ex): At 1st level, a wandering judge gains a +2 bonus on Sense Motive checks.
Favored Enemy (Ex): At 1st level, a regulator must select dragon as his favored enemy.
Blessed by Law (Su): At 4th level, a regulator lives and breathes law. In return he receives access to the warpriest blessing of Law and gains the minor blessing. A regulator uses his ranger level – 3 as his warpriest level to determine the effect of the blessing. At 13th level, a regulator gains the major blessing from the Law blessing.
Loyal to the Law (Ex): At 4th level, a regulator gains a teamwork feat as a bonus feat. He must meet the prerequisites for this feat. Twice per day, as a standard action, the regulator may grant this feat to all allies within 30 feet who can see and hear him. Allies retain the use of this bonus feat for 3 rounds plus 1 round for every 2 levels the regulator possesses. Allies do not need to meet the prerequisites of this bonus feat. Chaotic creatures do not gain the benefit of this teamwork feat, even if the regulator considers them allies.
Reckoning (Su): At 5th level, a regulator gains the ability to pronounce judgment, as the inquisitor class feature, but his inquisitor level is considered to be his ranger level – 4. At 13th level, whenever a regulator uses his judgment ability, he selects two different judgments, instead of one. This only consumes one use of his judgment ability. As a swift action, a regulator can change one of these judgments to another type.

Skylord
Since Dohinin first took to the sky, wyvarans have tried to master it. Those that travel the path of the skylord become one with the wind, which allows them to perform deadly charges that pummels their foes.
Associated Class: monk
Associated Race: wyvaran
Replaced Abilities: Fast movement, slow fall
One with the Wind (Ex): Starting at 3rd level a skylord begins to master the sky. As long as a skylord is not wearing armor or carrying a medium or heavy load his maneuverability class improves by one step at 3rd, 6th, 12th and 15th level. At 9th level, a skylord can recover from any failed Fly check or collision after 10 feet of falling, hovering in place until the start of his next turn. At 18th level, a skylord can fly upwards at any angle.
Kinetic Strike (Ex): Starting at 4th level, whenever a skylord flies his full fly speed as part of a charge and succeeds on his attack, he deals an extra 1d6 points of bludgeoning damage. This damage increases by 1d6 for every 2 levels above 4th he possesses, to a maximum of 9d6 at 20th level.
