Hybrid Class: Luminary


“This picture will make you famous… trust me, I’m a luminary!”

The noble and profound deeds of adventurers are well-recounted in story and oral re-telling, but how much more exciting would they be visually, in color?  Hybrid Class: Luminary, from Purple Duck Games brings occult photography to fantasy roleplaying games, combining the visual powers of the occult mesmerist with the mechanical and elemental trickery of the alchemist base class.  Luminaries blast enemies that get in the way of their shots with the power of light, and use their photography to create effects that help their allies and confound their foes.   Psychic spells and alchemical photographic manipulations combine in a fun new class!  Hybrid Class: Luminary contains:

  • A full 20-level hybrid class, the Luminary
  • Mundane photography and how it interacts with fantasy
  • Luminaries in PDG’s campaign world, Porphyra
  • New feats for the luminary class
  • Favored class bonuses for core and Porphyran races
  • A 10th level luminary NPC, ready for play

So, make a flash and go out and get Hybrid Class: Luminary today, from the photogenic phelons at Purple Duck Games, where our games are what you want!

Developer post here, opening the floor for product discussion and questions.

With the advent of the Gunslinger class, I saw that Pathfinder was moving in a more tech-heavy direction. If guns were now included, why not cameras? Furthermore, why not magical cameras?
The Luminary began as an Alchemist archetype idea, since chemicals and science played a large part in the development of real world photography. With the coming of the Hybrid class and Occult class options, I saw the possibility of giving the idea more focus and clarity (see what I did there?)
Combing the Mesmerist with the Alchemist seems a match made in the higher planes, in order to create the manipulative and mysterious occult photographer, the Luminary.
I recommend this class for Steampunk and Occult Wild Western settings, and of course for the Patchwork Planet of Porphyra!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
