Duskwalker Handbook: PF2 Ancestry Guide – RPGBOT

Introduction.

Duskwalkers are humanoids allowed to reincarnate due to a deal between two powerful servants of the goddess of death who created a path to reincarnation for select individuals whose first life was cut short while in the service to the natural cycle of life and death.

Much of the Duskwalker’s themes involve combating undead foes, and they really shine in a campaign where undead enemies are prominent. In other campaigns, many of the Duskwalker’s Ancestry Feats will be nearly useless.

RPGBOT uses the color coding scheme which has become common among Pathfinder build handbooks.

  • Red : Bad, useless options, or options which are extremely situational. Nearly never useful.
  • Orange : OK options, or useful options that only apply in rare circumstances. Useful sometimes.
  • Green : Good options. Useful often.
  • Blue : Fantastic options, often essential to the function of your character. Useful very frequently.

Duskwalker Traits

Like many Versatile Heritages, the Duskwalker grants low-light vision, or Darkvision if your Ancestry already has low-light vision. This on its own is a great option, and even if you don’t take any Heritage-specific Ancestry Feats it can still be an impactful Heritage option for Ancestries which normally have poor vision options.

In addition, a Duskwalker’s body and spirit cannot become undead. This is unlikely to benefit a player directly since becoming undead requires that you be dead in most cases, but it’s thematically interesting.

Duskwalker Feats

  • Duskwalker Lore : Training in two good skills and Boneyard Lore.
  • Ghost Hunter : A Ghost Touch rune costs just 75gp, making it a trivial cost beyond low levels. Unless you’re planning to max out on other property runes, this isn’t worth the feat.
  • Gravesight : If you don’t already get Darkvision between your Ancestry and the Changeling Heritage traits, this is an absolute must. The ability to see in darkness is simply too good to pass up.
  • Lifesense : Even as an imprecise sense with such limited range, you can still use this to detect hidden or invisible enemies.
  • Spirit Soother : Only applies in a campaign where your GM uses Haunts.
  • Ward Against Corruption : Too situational.
  • Duskwalker Magic : Augury is one of my favorite divinations, but it’s also a 2nd-level spell that spellcasters have had access to for 6 levels. If you need it, consider a wand. Gentle Respose is extremely situational. Buy a scroll.
  • Spirit Strikes : Against most creatures this isn’t anywhere near an important amount of damage. But it’s exactly enough to trigger the bonus damage from damage weaknesses, which makes this extremely effective against some creatures like zombies (weakness to positive).
  • Resist Ruin : Situational. Not worth the feat unless you face a lot of undead foes.
  • Boneyard’s Call : A really interesting concept, but Plane Shift has been available for at least 3 levels on every spell list. This is not worth a feat, especially one this high-level.

SpellBook Instructions

The spellbook webtool creates spell and focus spell lists based on several filter boxes. Then you can print that list as a PDF. This is an advanced tool where you can filter spells in three steps.

  • Select Spells or Focus Spells
  • Navigate to the filter boxes zone. There you can select several filters among Traditions, Traits, Level, Source Books and others.

You can select item by item or you can check the checkbox at the top of each filter. It allows you to select/deselect all of them at once.

When Show Heightened Spells checkbox is checked, you'll also see heightened versions of each spell. The spell description shows you the heightened version of the spell, with all calculations already made.

Cantrip Lvl select allows you to set the Level Cantrips and Focus Spells are heightened to. It also sets the maximum level shown for Cantrips and Focus Spells.

  • Last step allows you to filter among the matches from the previous step.

The spell matches table headers allow you to sort the rows just clicking on them. Moreover, the table has a first row with filters that allow you to filter the matches one step further.

Every time you make a new search, the table keeps matches from the previous table that were checked. That way, you can freely build a customizable spell list. You can also keep Focus Spells (if you checked those spells) from one search to another search made with normal spells.

Print Sheets

First column table has checkboxes that allow you to select which spells you want to be printed out. In order to achieve that, just click on the PRINT button on the top right corner of the page.

You'll be able to change column display when printed sheet is displayed. Click on the top right button . You'll also be able to show/hide small boxes placed next to the spell names in order to keep record of used spells. Just click on the top right button

Saving spell matches

You can visit later this website and recover the list of spells you've checked after using the filters. Just click on the SAVE button to generate a unique URL that will lead you to that information. Now you can name the spell lists.

Spellbook Videotutorials

You can follow this link to see a list of small video tutorials where you can learn how to use this webtool.

This webtool is always adding new features. Your suggestions will make it better.

Save feat list

You can save the feats you have checked before in the table. Name the list in the following input box.

Below you see an URL, you must record it. After you've clicked on the save button below, if you follow that URL, it will lead you to the feats you have checked before. You can share that link with your GM, players, etc.

Pathfinder Token Pack: Bestiaries

An add-on module by paizo.

Every creature, every variant, every portrait, tokenized and ready for use.

A truly comprehensive collection of portrait and token artwork for more than 1,200 creatures including their variants. This all-in-one package exclusive to Foundry VTT combines all of the artwork from the Pathfinder Bestiary, Bestiary 2, and Bestiary 3 for Pathfinder Second Edition into a single collection. Clockwork constructs, dangerous devils, deadly dragons, nightmarish niliths, ominous orcs, slithering serpentfolk, plaintive petitioners, and untamable undead—no creature goes unrepresented.

This unique, exclusive bundle includes:

  • Tokens for all 1207* creatures included in the Pathfinder Second Edition game system for Foundry VTT, including Unique tokens for the dragons at each age category, the petitioners of every plane, and even every different colour of dracolisk!
  • High-resolution portrait art pieces for all of the creatures in the bestiaries.
  • Dozens of custom portraits unique to this collection, composited using images from Paizo's vast vault of artwork.
  • A blank copy of the token ring, so you can make tokens that match for your own homebrew creatures and your party! (webp format)
  • DnD5e Game System
  • Savage Pathfinder

*- some creatures such as the spellcaster variants of Dragons share the same art.

Frequently Asked Questions

I Already Own The Bestiary PDFs, Is There A Discount?

Historically, we have offered discounts for Foundry Virtual Tabletop packages when the modules are conversions of existing Paizo works, such as adventure paths. However, as this token pack is an entirely new and stand-alone product, not a conversion of any single book or PDF, there is no original publication that we can use as the basis for a PDF discount.

It's important to remember that this product is not simply a Foundry VTT port of the Pathfinder Bestiary books. In fact, all of the rules content (including creature statistics) from every official Pathfinder source, including the bestiaries, is already included in the Pathfinder Second Edition Game System for Foundry VTT. This product offers token and portrait artwork for every single one of those creatures. The tokens included in this product are unique and have not been re-released, and we have also included many difficult-to-find or wholly custom pieces of art, making it a truly unique collection.

How Much Space Do I Need?

Thanks to the technological advancement that is webp image compression, we have been able to include the entire package at less than 300MB.

Where Did You Get The Art?

The overwhelming majority of creatures were easily sourced-- they were the art pieces included in the bestiaries originally. However, some creatures either did not have art included in the original bestiary books, were simply one-line descriptions offered as a variant of an existing creature, or were otherwise unavailable. For those pieces, we worked closely with Paizo Inc. to locate art for creatures from books outside the bestiaries, pieces from a variety of pawn boxes and battle cards, and even unused concept art. In some rare cases, such as the Petitioners or the Living Graffiti, we used source art from a variety of books to composite suitable images which would align with the creature descriptions while respecting the work of the original artists and submitted those for approval to Paizo's art team. We are very pleased to say that every single creature is represented.

What Creatures Does This Pack Include?

We Deserve Better Nonalcoholic Drinks

NA menus are ubiquitous now, but not all of them are created equal

Share All sharing options for: We Deserve Better Nonalcoholic Drinks

A cold Coca-Cola is honestly a pretty good nonalcoholic beverage: sweet, refreshing, with a twinge of mystery flavor that perfectly cuts through the sugar. It’s fortunate Coke is so great, because for decades, it was the top option for nondrinkers at bars.

At some places, particularly dives, the “NA beverage program” still consists of a soda gun, but in Seattle, nearly every notable bar and restaurant offers nondrinkers, designated drivers, and “I don’t want a drink right now”-ers a chance to get something more interesting than soda or coffee. This is a welcome bit of inclusiveness that also makes business sense — thanks to a mix of Zoomer prudishness, wellness culture, and rising numbers of sober people, abstaining from drinking has turned downright trendy . During dry January (or *gasp * damp January ), if your bar doesn’t have NA options, it’ll likely be losing customers to bars that do.

But not every bar approaches NA drinks (“mocktail” is a derogatory term these days) with the same level of care. “It’s disappointing when I look at a bar menu and I see beautiful cocktails that have alcohol in them,” says Christos Andrews, who owns Ghost Note Coffee on Capitol Hill and no longer drinks alcohol for health reasons. “And then you go to the NA menu and it’s just kind of lazy.”

This laziness can come in the form of NA drinks that are simplistic compared to alcoholic options. “Here’s some juice and some herbs and syrup smashed together,” is how Anthony Spruill, the lead bartender at Green Lake’s Eight Row , describes this genre. Other NA menus lean on beverages that try to replicate the taste of alcohol, which typically fails. A nonalcoholic wine pairing, for instance, sounds nice until you order it and realize that most NA wines are pretty close to grape juice.

As Kirstin Vracko told me when I recently visited her NA bottle shop, Cheeky and Dry , taking the alcohol out of spirits or wine means removing not just some of the flavor but also the mouthfeel that drinkers consciously or unconsciously have come to expect. So producers have to replace what’s lost in other ways, like adding bitters to NA wine or chiles to spirits to reproduce that tell-tale throat-burning sensation. Other NA spirit brands are building entirely new flavor profiles. The Seattle-based Pathfinder (a common ingredient at bars) is herbal and sweet in front but leaves behind an earthy aftertaste, like the roots of a tree. It’s sort of like amaro, but also like nothing but itself.

The most exciting NA concoctions are the ones that break the molds established by traditional cocktail culture. Like the Sun Ship, one of the signature drinks at Ghost Note. It’s technically a coffee beverage, but you would be forgiven for forgetting that there’s espresso in it — there’s also coconut water, lime, and smoked grapefruit rosemary syrup. It’s refreshing with strong citrus notes, but the rosemary adds a deep herbal aroma to it. At the cafe, it comes in a coupe glass garnished with a hefty sprig of rosemary. Try one and tell me that this isn’t the same category of beverage as a high-end NA cocktail.

At Eight Row (a hub for sober people in the service industry ), the NA portion of the cocktail menu rotates seasonally just like the rest of it. Last time I was there, to talk to Spruill and owner David Nichols — both of whom are sober — I had a drink called the Schoolmaster, which had Pathfinder, Seedlip Spice (another NA spirit), pear butter, ginger, honey, lemon, and NA sparkling wine. It tasted like a cozy blanket on a rainy winter’s day.

At $16, a Schoolmaster is also as expensive as a cocktail with alcohol in it, but that makes sense: Bottles of NA spirits are as expensive as mid-tier whiskey or gin, and if a bar is doing it right, it should take the same amount of effort and thought to compose an NA drink as any other cocktail.

This can take many forms. The universe of NA beverages is much larger than the galaxy of NA cocktail-esque drinks. At Filipino fine-dining destination Archipelago , you can get a “juice pairing” that marries traditional Filipino flavors with Pacific Northwest fruits and berries. This is “not merely a substitute for our wine pairing, but truly its own thing,” co-owners Amber Manuguid and Aaron Verzosa wrote in an email.

When a bar with otherwise exceptional cocktails has a blah NA menu, it can signal that it doesn’t really care all that much about its sober (or “ sober-curious ”) clientele. Spruill compares it to dietary restrictions — chefs can work to accommodate them, or they can offer them some second-best substitution options, taking the attitude of “they don’t want our menu, so this is good enough for them,” he says.

Bars that have great NA selections can see tangible benefits from them thanks to the growing number of sober-ish customers. Kraig Rovensky is a partner at Capitol Hill bar Life on Mars , which has been growing its NA menu for years. Pre-COVID, only about 2 or 3 percent of the bar’s sales were from NA drinks, he says. Now, after making a major push to expand its offerings , that number is 10 to 12 percent on a regular month, and during January it can be 25 to 30 percent on a given night.

This takes effort. Non-drinkers are now accustomed to having options when we go out, and we’re no longer impressed by a seasonal shrub. Not wanting to drink alcohol shouldn’t prevent someone from having an over-the-top, high-end beverage with all the bells and whistles cocktail bars can provide. You have to care about the whole experience,” Spruill says. “You have to care about the whole spectrum of what people are interested in ingesting.”

  12. Best way to build a Blood Hunter for Pathfinder 2E?

    I really don't suggest starting PF2e at such a high level. You all will be much better off finishing your campaign in D&D then switching over and starting at level 1. This, this, 100% this. My general suggestion for those looking to convert a blood hunter is to look at thaumaturge first based on how I remember the feel of the blood hunter.
