There seems to be a typo on page 170 where it lists a utility wild talent named as "Phantom Image" but a lot of subsecuent Wild Talents mark as requiring one named "Phantom Illusion", which cannot be found anywhere on the book (not even as archetype class features, spells, feats, etc.).

I really wish more of your content was available for 5e. I keep getting all these exciting e-mails about when you release new product only to go "Aww, but it's pathfinder :/"

Not to worry, we just released HORRIFIC CURSES (5E) last Friday, with new adventures including The Horseshoe Calamity (5E) in May and The Diluvian Disaster (5E) in April along with the epic Legendary Planet Adventure Path! Coming soon, our AEGIS OF EMPIRES ADVENTURE PATH will be available starting next month for 5E as well, plus we've got even more exciting new adventures and accessories coming your way!

Decided to go ahead and pick the PoD up at list price since I'm a fan of this team. Overall the book is very solid and I particularly like how well the content from different sources have been smoothed over to work together. My only real gripes are that the Roil Dancer from Dreamscarred Press wasn't included - I really would have liked to see that one integrated into the larger Kineticist ecosystem - and there still isn't an option for non-Constitution based Kineticists that isn't starkly worse than the base class. Still, this is an extremely impressive piece of work. Bravo on a job well done.

Just wondering but will these books like this be converted to Pathfinder 2nd edition?

The entire book, probably not, but we *did* just release today the our brand new 20-level LEGENDARY KINETICISTS class, available right here on DrivethruRPG! Here's the link -

Does this contain the original versions, or has content been changed from the various sources they first appeared in?

Much of the content has been updated to fit what's currently available as well as allow the various sources from which the book pulls to work together more cleanly. I also wanted to make sure the wording on archetypes, talents, etc. was as uniform as possible. What I did with the blood kineticist is a prime example of this. Because it's Paizo content, its original printing did not take KoP3's bloody murder blast into account, and because that's a blast exclusive to blood kineticists, I included it with their entry rather than listing it with other blasts which baseline kineticists or most other archetypes might learn. The blood kineticist's vampiric infusion was later introduced as a void infusion, so I altered its entry so, instead of describing what the infusion does within the archetype's text, I refer to its newer version and specify how it's different for a blood kineticist (primarily in that it's counted as water, is associated with a variety of water-element blasts, etc.). I also altered the text of other...See more

How extensive is Kineticists options from PDG incorporated?
Is Occultist archetypes included in the book?

It's actually quite extensive, I'd say! This book incorporates much of the content from the KoP series. Kineticist-specific content from the LK series is also included, though I opted not to include non-kineticist archetypes (with one notable exception) or the prestige class present in LK2. Occult Archetypes follows the same line of thought, with the UKC pulling a little of OA2's content and a little more of OA1's. And because it introduced a new element, Magitech Archetypes is also represented!

Wow I would love to see those new elements. I had all the prior books, and wanted to know how extensive is it. Well I have to find out I guess. Nothing much on lore-wise from Porphyra right?

Not that I'm aware of, Onyx was solely responsible for any new material, as I was taking a hiatus at the time. I have my copy, and wow is it packed full of everything you could ever want from the class. This compilation represents years of work from Paizo, myself, and the entirety of Team KOP (especially Onyx obv).

Right, pretty much all the lore elements were dumbed down or removed as best as I could so this could fit in with any adventure, including those outside of the Porphyra universe. As for the new elements, if you're already familiar with KoP there's realistically only two others beyond those and the Paizo ones that were included, and both of them came from Legendary Games' content. I did update the elemental affiliations of many wild talents, though, such that all of the elements included can be used together regardless of their original source (and a good portion of the new content includes abilities which cross KoP elements with LG's elements in what I hope are interesting ways).

Will this be available in a PoD, and if so, will there be a discount for people who bought the PoDs of the previous books as there is currently for the PDF version?
Customer avatar

There will be a POD version available as soon as it cycles through the system. Both I and the layout person on this book were at PaizoCon over the past weekend so we're just now getting back to work. There was a last-minute tweak needed in the print version so Lj should get that done in the next day or so and we'll resubmit the print files and they'll be available as soon as they go through. Probably a week or so.

As for a discounted print version for people who already bought the PDF, the short answer is yes though it might be something you need to get through the Legendary Games webstore so we can apply the appropriate discount.

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.
