Shipping date of Miniatures: We have good news! All the miniatures sets for USA and Canada backers are on their way across the Pacific, they should be arriving at your homes in mid March! The rest of the world’s miniatures sets will be shipping out of China in early March, and should arrive at your homes in April.
Book publishing date: Many have asked this very reasonable question – when will I get the book. Part of the reason we’ve had a bit of difficulty nailing this down is the accessibility of the leather we need, and far more relevantly, the 20% additional content. The latter isn’t just tacked onto the back of the book. Rather it’s spread throughout the book. This has caused additional layout, art, writing, etc. At this point it looks like the book should be in your hands in May, with the PDF delivered in March.
In this update we’ll begin a focus on the gnorri, one of the least known mythos races in Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos for Pathfinder.
In this update we’ll look a little at the weapons they use.
Gnorri Special Weapons:
Gnorri weapons are almost exclusively made out of the mithral-like bones of the Dahg Gahdohl (pronounced dag gadol) which are terribly vicious and dangerous large fish. These weapons, although made from bone, do not have the ‘fragile’ characteristic. Gnorri form their ‘sacred’ martial weapons from the unusually strong bones of these large sea creatures. It is considered taboo to sell the bones to non-gnorri, however finished weapons are in rare cases traded for things of value to the gnorri that owns the weapon. Also, another interesting characteristic of these bone weapons is that even after they are made and complete, they can be worked on further to become a masterwork weapon.
Gnorri One-handed Shortspear: This spear is about 3 feet in length with about ½ it’s length being the blade. It is balanced (weight on the end) in such a manner to be suitable as a thrown weapon. 4gp 1d6, crit: 20/x2. Range: 15’. 6 Ibs. Piercing or Slashing. When thrown, damage is only piercing.
Gnorri Two-handed Long Spear: This spear is about 6-7 feet in length with about 3 feet its length being the blade. The spear is made completely of bone. It can be a reach or non-reach weapon in the hands of a gnorri with martial proficiency or someone with the exotic weapon feat for this weapon. 60gp 1d10, crit: 18-20 x2. Range: None. 10 Ibs. Piercing or Slashing. Can be Reach or Non-Reach. Deadly.
Gnorri One-Handed Short Sword: This 2 ½ foot weapon is slightly curved with a wide blade and jagged parts that tear the flesh. It is considered a light weapon. 30gp 1d6, crit: 18-20 x2. Range: none. 4 Ibs. Slashing or Piercing. Deadly.
Gnorri One-Handed Sword: This 4 foot weapon has a slight curve with a wide blade and jagged parts that tear the flesh. If the character has Exotic Weapon Proficiency (Gnorri Sword) or is a gnorri with proficiency in gnorri sword then it is considered a one-handed weapon. Without the appropriate feat, it is a two-handed weapon.50gp 1d8, crit: 18-20 x2. Range: none. 8 Ibs. Slashing or Piercing. Deadly.
Gnorri Three-Handed Sword: Similar to the Gnorri One-Handed Sword, this 6 foot weapon has a greater curve with a wide blade and jagged parts that tear the flesh. It is unwieldy weapon that requires three hands to effectively use it.75gp 2d8, crit: 18-20 x2. Range: none. 12 Ibs. Slashing. Deadly.
Other Weapons Used By Gnorri:
Harpoon. 5gp 1d8, crit: 20 x3. Range: 10’. 16 Ibs. Piercing. Grapple.Typically used from the water to land to capture land creatures.
Underwater heavy crossbow: 100gp 1d10, crit: 19-20 x3. Range: 120’. 8 Ibs. Piercing
Underwater light crossbow: 75gp 1d8, crit: 19-20 x3. Range: 80’. 4 Ibs. Piercing
I hope you enjoy beginning to learn about Gnorri. More to come on them next week.
