  • Advantageous Abilities: Charismatic Abilities (5e) This pdf clocks in at 6 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/foreword, 1 page advertisement, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 1 page of content, so let’s take a look!   So, what do we get here? In short, we get abilities you can add to specific NPCs to grant them a more unique flavor, some tricks to set them apart, if you will. Distracting Allure, for example, lets you add your Charisma modifier to Dexterity (sleight of hand) checks. As a minor nitpick, rules-language, while functional, is not 100% according to the standards. Additionally, it does imply attraction and lacks a caveat to represent other critters – RAW, […]

  • Mythic Minis: Hierophant Path Abilities II This Mythic Mini clocks in at 3 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   This time, we’re all about more hierophant path abilities, after the great first installment for the path so let’s check this out!   So what do these do? First, there are 2 1st tier abilities, the first of which allows you to use mythic power to change your energy resistance temporarily, but on the fly. That one works. The “Treesinger” ability nets you plant-themed bonus spells known, heal and bolster (and even enthrall) plants, undo effects on organic material made from plants/plants. Mythic power can be used to […]

Unlike regular potions, depending on your mythic tier, you can expand these to include metamagic effects and increase their potency, but also tying them to yourself, seeing a rapid decay in potency upon being taken away from you. As living things, however, you can actually cultivate them and grow more of them! Quite cool, […]

Nice.   “Ever Ready” makes you more efficient in surprise rounds and against readied actions, which is actually rather fitting for a mythic ability and manages to convey the mythic flair […]

We kick off with 5 trickster abilities for 1st tier, with one, analytical eye, having already featured in teh Guardian Path abilities. I didn’t consider it good design and too metagamey back then and that has not changed. Next.   The first new one would be backstabber, which is a passive benefit that increases to-hit and sneak attack damage output and allows you to spend mythic power to flank otherwise unflankable non-mythic […]

That’s…exceedingly boring, lame and unworthy of a mythic ability. It is also recycled from the Champion mythic mini-pdf. Reprint at that brevity?   -Flanking Foil: Get 1/2 mythic tier as dodge-bonus to AC whenever you are flanked. If a creature flanking you misses […]
