  • Alchemist Codex This collection of NPC-builds clocks in at 23 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with exactly 20 pages of content, so what do we get?   Well, the answer here is pretty straightforward – we get 20 alchemist-builds, one for each level.   All right, that was an old and pretty lame joke the first time around; now, it’s ridiculous. Sorry. So, much like the previous codex detailing sample kineticists, this one instead tackles alchemists and aims to give the GM sample builds to throw at characters, while also providing an interesting background story for them. Additionally, the reader can glean at a cursory look that thankfully, the helpful boon-entries for […]

All right, all right…So, the first thing you’ll notice is that, as denoted by the huge Porphyra-logo, the characters herein sport fluff that is tied to Porphyra, firmly rooting them in Purple Duck Games’ patchwork planet, though that does not mean that they don’t work in different contexts. The second thing you’ll notice is that each of the characters featured comes with […]

  • Chi Warrior This class-pdf clocks in at 17 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 13 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The Chi Warrior is a base class that receives d10, 4+Int skills per level, full BAB-progression, good Fort- Ref- And Will-saves, AC bonus scaling up to +5, fast movement scaling up to +60 ft. and a monk’s unarmed damage progression. On the nitpicky side, chi warriors are proficient with simple weapons “and unarmed strikes”, which while consistent, is unfortunately not how that particular component is usually phrased in PFRPG rules language. They also receive proficiency in light and medium armors, though, when unarmored, the class receives Charisma-bonus, […]
