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

For years, the customization options for the cleric have been pretty minimal; pick a god, 2 domains, channel negative or positive, here's your spells.
I loved the Cleric class, but like an animated princess, I longed for more!
Clerics of Porphyra gave me the chance to explore new religion-based themes and mechanics or the RPG holy guy. I hope you all dig what I cooked up!
Included in this book is the Pillar Hybrid Class, a combo of the Cleric and Cavalier, that compares thematically with a the Paladin and the Warpriest. Along with new class features, the Pillar allows near-endless customization possibilities by included both the Domains AND the Order class features.

Long Version: I totally agree. When I set the file to upload it sent out the email and rejected the file. It has rejected the file two more times since then. Also when I tried to upload a book for print yesterday both the cover and interior file were rejected. I have sent a querry to the site to find out what is up.

Short version: I am working to correct the probelm.

Thank you for the quick reply.
This may be one of the things you've touched on with the new version but the Favored Keeper's Shared Channeling ability states that it is activated as a Swift Action. Is that the case or is the swift action required to send the charge to the familiar who then spends their own action to actually use the energy channel charge?

The file should be corrected now.

The Shared Channeling ability is designed for your to be able to channel energy at a distance through your familiar. It is your swift action that triggers it. The way it is written, you could fire off multiple channels in a round for a short period of time (swift, then standard) but the # of channels a day is very limited. You also lose the ability to share spells with your familiar.

It might be a bit too powerful but it is pretty awesome and could allow for your familiar to shine as a more mobile medic.

Most of the corrections made were around things that were misnamed or just missing.

The file definitely works now, and thank you for clarifying your intention on how that power works. I'm not so sure I agree with the concept of spending standard actions in place of your swift and I do agree that it's probably too powerful as a concept because of what it does to action economy (I can replace a standard action ability with a swift but can't have the familiar deliver heals or touch buffs? Almost definitely worth it!) but that all said I can't wait to see what this would do to a Lyrakien Azata with Spirit's Gift: Life and have spent a good portion of the morning trying to figure out how to alter a Chosen One Paladin into this without sacrificing who she is.

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.
