Pathfinder 1e: Lich Slayer

Last week saw the release of the Book of Beasts: Warpriest Codex which is part of the Character Codex Subscription. So far we’ve shared with you the Mercenary Priest and the Airborne Reanimator. Both of these are low level characters. Today we are sharing with you a higher level character. This level 12 lich slayer is more than your typical warpriest. They’re a champion of the faith. One of the things we incorporated in the Warpriest Codex is the use of archetypes. The even-numbered levels are thematic, but some use archetypes, making them more unique.

A Mix Up with the Character Codex Subscription

Good day,

Earlier this week when I made Book of Beasts: Character Codex Subscription on DriveThruRPG, I made it as the wrong type of product. Short of the long, I fixed the error by remaking it so if you have not yet purchased the subscription and are about it, all is good. If you have already purchased the Character Codex Subscription, check your email (including your spam folder) to see if you received an email from DriveThruRPG, it will have a link to download the fixed version. If you do not have an email from DriveThruRPG, contact me at contact AT jonbrazer DOT com, and we will get this resolved.

My sincerest apologizes for the situation,

Dale McCoy, Jr

Pathfinder 1e: The Character Codex Subscription Will Include …

A few weeks ago we announced the Book of Beasts: Character Codex and that it would be released as individual PDFs as well as a subscription. What we did not have finalized at that point was what all would be included in it. We asked your opinions and we made our decisions.

The Book of Beasts: Character Codex will include the NPCs from the following classes:

  • Alchemist
  • Arcanist
  • Bloodrager
  • Brawler
  • Cavalier
  • Hunter
  • Magus
  • Oracle
  • Slayer
  • Swashbuckler
  • Warpriest
  • Witch

Twelve classes in total will get 20 NPCs cover the entire level range. Half of them will be normal, standard builds, roughly what you expect from this class. The other half are thematic, experimental. Some of the latter group use archetypes. Half if the builds use races from the core rulebook. The other half utilize races in the Advanced Race Guide, with particular emphasis on races that also appear in the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Compendium. The standard/thematic builds do not match up with core book / ARG builds. A changeling warpriest or oracle make more sense than an elf because a changeling posses a a Wisdom and Charisma bonuses while an elf possesses neither.

What books does this project draw from, you ask? Sure this book draws inspiration from the NPC Codex, but that book only used the Pathfinder Core Rulebook. This one uses classes that are not in the core rulebook and I already mentioned the Advanced Race Guide. So what other books are used? Obviously the core rulebook will be used. Classes in this book come from the Advanced Player’s Guide, Ultimate Magic, and the Advanced Class Guide so feats, spells, and archetypes from those books are fair game. We also had to have Ultimate Combat and Ultimate Equipment in the mix. The above books are pretty much the end of the list. The Warpriest Codex includes some spells from Horror Adventures because they made sense for the character, but they were the truly evil ones. Even lesser evil warpriests like the Champion of Greed did not go there. Only the truly heinous ones went there. So we may include other books from time to time, but they will be rare. And yes, we will be including some that have every last spell, magic item, feat, etc from the core rulebook and the book the class comes from and nothing else. This way you save some really simple builds and some characters with more involved builds.

So how does the subscription work precisely? Well, we will be launching the subscription at the same time as the Warpriest Codex and it will include that codex with it. Whenever we release a new PDF for individual sale, subscribers will automatically get a new PDF where they purchased the subscription. They get them all plus the final Character Codex when the project is complete.

As an added bonus, we will be including the Hero Lab Classic files for subscribers. Those that purchase the individual PDFs will not receive these included but can purchase them separately. Subscribers get this included as a way of saying, “Thank you,” for purchasing this early.

Now I know you’re thinking that all of this sounds great, but how much does it cost? That is a great question. Short answer: it’s complicated. Long answer: the final PDF will cost US$14.95 and individual PDFs will cost US$3.95. The subscription’s price is going to flux. The subscription will start off costing US$4.99 and as we increase PDFs, we will increase that price until we get to the final price of US$14.95. At that point, the price will remain there. So if you know you are going to want this collection of NPCs, you shouldn’t wait to grab it. It won’t be long before the Magus Codex is added to the subscription. We’re hard at work on that one already.

[Traveller] Creatures of Distant Worlds Subscription 2 Available

Earlier today, Spiders went active. This means the first Creatures of Distant Worlds Subscription ends. When we at Jon Brazer Enterprises launched the Subscription we did not know how many, if anyone, would be interested in having creatures in their home Traveller game. Less than a month later we know that the creatures would be smash success. And we at Jon Brazer Enterprises would like to thank each of those initial subscribers. Without you, we would not be the success that we are today.

With that, we would like to announce Creatures of Distant Worlds Subscription 2. These next five creatures focus on helping to make ordinary situations more dangerous. First off we have the Spiked Scorpion who’s spiked armor makes it deadly to attack. Next up we have Jump Angels and Demons. These creatures of myth make travel between the stars both exciting and deadly. Issue 8, Tarhhuf Riding Wolf, helps to make primitive barbarians a threat to any local population. This issue is also special in that it is the first of many to feature Alex Greene as its author. Following this comes Vampire Skrillids, tiny insects that make you wish you fell into a nest of mosquitoes. In he same vein as Spiders, Ants presents a wide variety of types and sizes, the largest being large enough to cause damage to a space ship.

This subscription runs for a limited time. You cannot sign up for the subscription after August 3rd. Remember, subscribers receive their creatures at 20% off the standard price and also can download it on the Thursday prior to the creature being offered for individual sale. Subscribe today.

Creatures of Distant Worlds: Sand Cobras and Subscription

Jon Brazer Enterprises is pleased to announce two new products. The first is the Sand Cobra:

On distant worlds in the deepest regions of space, unknown creatures await unwitting explorers. Close to home, devious politicians and gangsters lure native wild life to carry out their dirty work while maintaining denyability. On a frontier outpost, primitive life forms walk the uninhabited regions hoping claim the civilized place as their new home. Be prepared no matter where your players go. Be ready with the Creatures of Distant Worlds.

Sand Cobras borrow through deserts and beaches. Their venom slows the mind and their strength pulls those they grab under the sand to their doom. Stand up to the challenge and save the day, or fail to defend yourself and become this creature’s next meal.

Download this free product now at DriveThruRPG.com
