The Genius Guide to Expanded Favored Class Options

June 21st, 2011 1 Comment

Sometimes a skill point or an extra hp just doesn’t cut it

Favored class options from the Advanced Players Guide are a great way of adding flavor to particular class and race combinations. An elven cavalier’s mount toughens with extra hit points. A dwarven barbarian gains extra rages. A halfling rogue’s crits get better with her favored weapon, while a half-orc witch’s familiar gains more skills. But the Advanced Player’s Guide doesn’t hit every combination, and there are many class and race pairings that are still stuck with the standard +1 skill point or +1 hit point.

The Genius Guide to Expanded Favored Class Options fills in the holes, giving you a flavorful favored class option for every class and race combination. But that’s not all. It also gives you a handful of “universal” favored class options, which you can use to add flavor to any class and race combination. And it expands beyond the core rules to other Super Genius products, covering all the classes SGG has published with favored class options for each core race.

Sorcerer’s Options: Beyond Bloodlines

June 15th, 2011 2 Comments

Wizards learn magic. We are magic.

Wizards study. Clerics call upon their gods. Even witches and bards draw upon power from an external source. The sorcerer is unique among spellcasters, pulling power from an innate and evergrowing pool of magic within him. The sorcerer’s legacy. Mystic heritage. Special destiny.

This legacy is given form through the sorcerer’s bloodline—an awesome, flexible, flavorful element of the sorcerer class. So much so that nearly all new rules or variants for sorcerers take the form of new sorcerous bloodlines.

That’s fine as far as it goes. But these heroes have magic itself coursing through their veins. If ever there was a class ripe for innovative and interesting abilities, archetypes, quirks, and options, it’s the sorcerer.

The Sorcerer’s Options series of short products provides new concepts, options, and mechanics for Pathfinder sorcerers.

50% off All SGG PDFs!

June 10th, 2011 No Comments

Not going to PaizoCon? We’ll miss you, but in the mean time we’ve got your back!

For a limited time only, we’re holding a “Sorry You Won’t Be At PaizoCon” sale, and that means 50% off the entire stock of SGG PDF products. If you can’t be at the show, there’s never been a better time to load up!

(And here’s a little secret: You can take advantage of the sale even if you are going to PaizoCon. Shh. We won’t tell if you don’t.)


Get a Free PDF—Just for Telling Us What You Like!

June 10th, 2011 1 Comment

You read that right!

The “Sorry You Won’t Be At PaizoCon” Sale is in full swing (50% off all our PDFs), but health issues have unfortunately sidelined Owen K.C. Stephens from PaizoCon. So now he’s not only bored, but free of the checks-and-balances the other Geniuses normally provide. (The painkillers help with that last one, too.)

And he aims to misbehave!

So, Owen’s announcing (early) that starting this August (at Gen Con), Super Genius Games is going to begin producing print books again. Our first print book will be Loot 4 Less: Things That Make You Go Boom, a 32-page compilation of material from the first three Loot 4 Less PDFs, with a foreword by Erik Mona himself!

While that first book is the only one we’re announcing right now, we certainly plan to produce more print books to follow it. The big question we have is, which of our exiting PDFs do you, our friends, fans, and patrons, most want to see in print? We can look at which PDFs have been the most popular as a guide for which ones might be the most popular in print. But that’s based on the untested theory that people most want to see print versions of the things they liked in PDF.

But what if that’s not true? What if print customers have very different tastes? Or if the ability to bundle 2 or 3 PDFs together into a single tome changes the desire to see them? Of if the fact we update and expand everything we compile makes people much more interested in something they were “meh” on originally? In short, what do you really want to see in print? We’d like to know.

And Owen is willing to bribe you to find out. (Because everyone who would normally stop him is busy at PaizoCon right now!)

So here’s what you do. Go to this thread on the Paizo message boards. Post a link to an existing SGG PDF you’d like to see included in a 32-page print compilation. If you want to see 2 or 3 specific PDFs bundled together, let us know, but be sure you list the thing you most want to see first—that’s your “vote.” Whatever existing PDF product gets the most votes will be part of a print book before the end of 2012 (and maybe much sooner)! One vote per person, so pick what you most want to see.

Everyone who votes also gets a free SGG PDF of their choice! After you post your link, just drop Owen a line at owen (dot) stephens (at) gmail (dot) com, and tell him what you voted for, and what PDF you’d like a copy of, for free!

And if you’re not sure—why not buy a PDF and see if you’d like a print version? After all, right now we’re having our “Dang It, I Can’t Go To PaizoCon” sale, so everything is 50% off! Throw in your free PDF, and you’ll end up with two products for half the price of one!

We’re looking forward to your votes!
