Heroes of Omen: The Inventor


Forrest_Imel_credit_piece_dtrpg.pngFor the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game 1st Edition.

Technology exists to varying degrees across Golarion; from the automatons of the Jistka Imperium, to dwarven, gnomish, and even goblin tinkerers throughout Absalom, Arcadia, or New Thassilon. The Inner Seas and beyond are rife with individuals who just need a good idea and a hint of technology to get them started down the path of the inventor.

Heroes of Omen: The Inventor translates the inventor class to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game 1st edition as a complete, 20-level class that includes over 100 innovations, breakthrough innovations, and revolutionary innovations. Stand proud against enemies with your base invention armor, construct, or weapon; or maybe you’re a gadget specialist or overwatch at heart.

Favored class bonuses for all core ancestries and some who live in the more technological regions of Golarion offer personalization to an inventor beyond their class alone.

Want to see what it’s like to be an inventor without giving up your current adventuring life? The Novice Inventor feat and inventor variant multiclass option are there to help you get a feel for innovations without all of the extra effort, and even prepared spellcasters will appreciate the ability to reverse engineer spells from magic items for their spellbooks.

Still Digesting before I can review. Two things...

1) I am assuming since there's a Boon Construct innovation, the Boon companion feat isn't a valid choice? 1a) Does the companion require handle animal checks, since I'm reading it's of the animal type?

2) Am I reading it right that the Novice Inventor feat means you could give your preferred weapon the Collapsible Weapon Innovation? Would be great for stealth characters (or Jedi)

Enjoyed what I've gleaned so far, can't wait to test it out in my games.

To anyone else, it's confirmed that the unstable redundancy innovation should be general, and not armor-specific.

Thank you and yes. I’ll have an update here soon with that and a few other minor things fixed.

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.
