The Final Update for Pathfinder 1e is Ready
28 days ago – Mon, Sep 27, 2021 at 07:11:17 PM

It's been a year since we ran this project, and we've all been through a lot in that time. Thankfully, I was lucky enough to be able to keep working on it even as we moved to full time work at home and adjusted to the new normal. After several months, we are finally done with the Pathfinder 1e version of Lands of Theia and can put in our print specs for the PoD version of that book. The updated PDF will go out shortly, so keep an eye on your emails.

Here's a list of the changes made in this final update.

  • Resolved various small edits, such as grammar and spelling. Also cleaned up page references where applicable.
  • Barrier sentinels are now a little more attack-oriented at 1st-level, trading tactical initiative (+2) for vital reflexes. TI +4 also trades places with opportunist.
  • Added new favored class bonuses for alkuaine, dragonkin, and tieflings.
  • The Mercenary jobs muscle and protection now grant additional rounds of their special abilities (rage and barrier focus, respectively).
  • Theian nobles now have a leadership style they can pick that includes the original steward option plus new choices such as merchant, paragon, sovereign, and warlord.
  • Added several new noble talents to complement and expand her leadership style.
  • Added new favored class bonuses for aasimar, atlanteans (BoMT 2018), dragonkin, goblins, ratfolk, tieflings, and vanara.
  • Added a brief FYI regarding the shizukari's ki frenzy for clarity. Also added new shizukari ki powers; dramatic performer and emperor's guise.
  • Added tiefling favored class bonus and updated favored class bonuses to better reference Theian races: aasimar (god-blooded), changelings (xendauni), ratfolk (otterlings).
  • With the announcement of the new Pathfinder 2e classes coming next year, thaumaturge has been renamed the thaumaturgist. This will help with clarity when looking up these classes and avoid any ambiguity.
  • Added archetypes for the astrologer and shizukari
  • Added feats for the astrologer and shizukari. Cleaned up the class feats table to better reference what classes get those feats when multiples are available.
  • Added detect stellar alignment to the spell descriptions.
  • Finished the monster chapter, adding the full list of class grafts (for simple monster creation), monsters by CR, and monsters by region & terrain.
  • Added cuca, deerlings, all kyver dragons, evil eyes, hachishaku-sama, jackalopes (including dire and wolpertinger), mary lwyds, mula sem cabecas, nopperabbos, olitiau, orishas, saci, slide rock bolters, strigoi (including a simple monster creation template graft), teke teke, todomeki, and tokoloshes.

Some highlights from the finished monster section.

Deerlings protect love in its many forms by playing pranks on those who would dismiss it.
Monsters like the mari lwyd have a presence in Theia thanks to its ties to the shattered worlds. How they get there and what their effect on the world is are unique to each.
Some monsters in Theia, like the slide rock bolter pictured here, are so large that not even our page borders can contain them.

So, with that out of the way, what's next?

  • As soon as I get approval for the PoD PF1 book, I will send out the relevant codes to all of you who have been waiting so patiently (Thank you!)
  • I will continue to work on the PF2 version next, with an eye toward having it done before the end of the year.
  • Once PF2 is ready and on its way for print specs, I will push to finish the 5e version as well, which should conclude all primary work on this setting.
  • I have a few small things to complete, such as a Play Manga d20 version of the classes for a couple backers who joined us as fans of that particular book. I will likewise make that available to everybody else here at a discount.
  • I want to put together a small "Monsters of Theia" supplement that will lay out the remaining dragon categories not presented in the main book and provide monster trainer information for everything.

Steven and I have greatly appreciated your dedication to making Lands of Theia happen. I know he has some more great things planned that we'll get published once they're ready, including the first of his adventure paths set in Inframundo, "The Stonehewn Legacy." We got to playtest it recently, and I think you're going to love how it delves into Theia's underground region, it's people, and the mysteries hidden in the west.
