Elves from NeoExodus? How is that possible?

For the NeoExodus: A House Divided and Pathfinder Roleplaying Game fans who think there were no "standard fantasy races" in NeoExodus, this might be the best quote of the day:

 The elves were the first major resistance the First Ones faced. They're a match for them until the Khaynites produced the virus called elfbane. The plague that decimates the population, causing the elves to use the Nexus gateways to flee Exodus, and allowing the First Ones to lock the gates behind them, allowing them to conquer.

The next question many of you are asking is what happened to the Dwarves? Lost Races of NeoExodus: Elves coming soon to DriveThruRPG.com and Paizo.

The Iconic Half-Giant and Android are coming to NeoExodus...

So since we received the last two pieces of artwork for the half-giant and the android for NeoExodus, those will be our iconic characters that we will have to add to our already growing list of iconics. I am not sure which classes I will have them attached to, but there are a few that are open that I might be interested in like Alchemist, Wizard, Monk and even Fighter. But that is the fun part. So if there are some iconic you would like to see for the half-giant and the android, let us know. We can’t do this without our fans.  Talk to you later…

NeoExodus Android artwork process

I just wanted to show you how we develop artwork for our projects. It starts with a rough draft, then we clean up the draft's design. We then move to the coloring stage and finally we do the FINAL coloring of the artwork. As you see something work form the beginning, while other get killed and sometimes brought back. Just something I though you might enjoy. Talk to you later...

Adventure Path Iconics: Lords of Undeath (PFRPG) Now available

Louis Porter Jr. Design, has released Adventure Path Iconics: Lords of Undeath for The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game at RPGNow.com and DriveThruRPG.com.  Here is information on this product:
A dark star fell from the sky bringing with it the end of all things! The sanctity of the world known as Abaddon was shattered when a global apocalyptic event of a meteor impacting the planet causing a destructive ecological and eldritch change. Now there is no day or night, just never ending Apocalypse.  Adventure Path Iconics: Lords of Undeath adds four new iconics based on the new races from Races of Obsidian Apocalypse: Flesh and Iron to the Obsidian Apocalypse campaign setting making the world even more interesting and just as dangerous. Are you willing to take up the fight?
Inside this book you will find you will find four new races for Races of Obsidian Apocalypse: Flesh and Iron:
  • Promethean (Flesh and Clockwork): Prometheans suffer lingering mental effects from their creation rites. The flesh prometheans have a personality made from an amalgam of souls, cobbled together from various creatures. Clockwork prometheans have the luxury of a solitary mind, but the creation rites cause them as much torment as they do to their flesh-bound cousins.
  • Raijin: When an outraged spirit of one slain by the undead lords of Abaddon possesses a survivor filled with desires for revenge, the two form a powerful and terrifying force, a raijin. A synergy of life and death, it can reach into the netherworld and manifest some powers of the dead in the physical world.
  • Uzamati: The only uzamati trait that stands out in their normal form is the purple irises of their eyes. But, when an uzamati phases out, all semblance of normalcy disappears. They melt into pure negative energy, becoming twisted in the process: Their skin turns a deep purple and exudes a strong glow. Their bodies become slightly transparent and gaunt as a skeleton.

These iconic consist of:
  • Alberdeen, Male uzamati magus
  • Joa, Male flesh promethean barbarian
  • Mixer, Asexual clockwork promethean alchemist
  • Siriah, Female raijin cavalier
Available at RPGNow.com here!!!

Campaign Setting with Toolkits

One of the more interesting things I discovered while working on Obsidian Apocalypse, is that when you build a campaign work, you never really know how people are going to use it to play their game.  When we built Obsidian Twilight (the predecessor to Obsidian Apocalypse), I thought of it as a zombie apocalypse setting but others thought it was a post apocalypse good versus evil setting. While even more thought that it would be more gothic / classic horror.  


The reason is that people have their own interpretation of the word “horror”.  So that is why we have a “generic” setting for Obsidian Apocalypse plus four custom toolkits that you can make your own custom setting and people have really responded to it. So I am wondering, is this something people would like to see campaign setting do in the future: One main “generic” concept of the setting a several toolkits to customize it any way that you might like to?  Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

Goodbye 2014, the worst year of my life...

This years sucked.

Period.

2014, I am glad it will be over tonight, and I can place everything about it to rest.

And for 2015, I get to start fresh and new. I don't know what God had planned for me, but I do know that I am going to win, no matter the odds or the opposition. Success is all about who is the MOST committed to what ever they want. Become committed to something bigger than you. I did and I survived my greatest personal nightmare that plagued me, and you can too. Just remember the light at the end of the tunnel isn't always a train, sometime it is the end of the darkness. Have a good 2015. Talk to you later...

Androids in NeoExodus and their inspiration…

I always wanted to add androids to the world of NeoExodus from the original idea and creation of the Kaga. I mean, if we have a sentient “computer system” how far could other artificial entities like androids and robots be? Cut to Paizo adding the Android to the Bestiary AND to their Iron Gods adventure path. So with that the rules for Androids have been created. Once they did that, I started thing was to add them to the NeoExodus setting where there would not be an issue with the original races, while at the same time how to make sense of all this. That was the easy part; the hard part was to understand them as a race. And with that I went to my old playbook of comic books and pulled out something from my past that seem to work almost perfectly with theses android. And with that I had to go to Valiant Comics  and specifically to Psi-Lords.

I like the idea of a caste system that I saw on Babylon 5’sMinbari with Psi-Lords also seemed to develop their own with the colors of Red, Orange and Yellow for the Psi Lords. So I carried over this idea for Androids for NeoExodus, which I renamed and how the androids refer to each other as Kagan. I guess you can figure out who created them.  So like the Minbari, the Kagan are split into the three castes of warriors, workers and religious. Any class can belong to whatever caste they choose. That is really for the choice of the player, but this adds some interest ideas and concepts to what PCs might be. I mean a Kagan Alchemist of the warrior caste might be very different from a Kagan Alchemist of the religious caste. Plus personally it make more sense for the Kaga to have created the Kagan. The Order of the Kaga sourcebook has proven that it is only a logical extension of the Prestige Classes of the Auger and Harbinger.

With all this said, we will be making changes to the normal stat blocks for the android race. I want to make them a little more interesting to those that play them for NeoExodus. I mean there are a few ideas that I think might work well with them. I guess you have to wait and see. Talk to you later…
