Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Kickstarter Update #18: Oread & Spanish Localization Stretch Goal

After a very slow Sunday, the Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Kickstarter campaign finally raised enough money today to unlock the additional archetype per class. The next stretch goal is another two-for-one deal. It includes both the Oread race, which sounds weird but is actually just Pathfinder's version of the Earth Genasi, and Spanish language localization. The latter part is why this stretch goal will only be unlocked when the campaign hits a hefty $1,390,000.
Our next stretch goal will be 2-in-1! A new race and a Spanish localization.
Presenting oreads—descendants of outsiders from the Elemental Plane of Earth. Oreads are solidly built, their skin is colored in stony shades of black, white, brown, and gray. They have crystalline spikes for hair and eyes like glowing gemstones. Stoic and patient, they are unmovable like mountains, yet unstoppable like an avalanche when propelled into action.
Wise and contemplative, oreads prefer silence to words and the solitude of mountain peaks and deep caverns to the bustle of city life. But should they find purpose, friendship, or enemies, hardly anything can impede their slow but purposeful advance toward their goals. Anyone who tries to stop an oread will sorely regret it: an oread’s granite-hard skin is nigh impossible to pierce, and a single strike of theirs lands with the weight of a ten-ton boulder.
Drawn to the solace of the wilderness, oreads often become rangers and druids. With their wisdom helping them find their place in nature, they easily survive on their own in uninhabited lands. Harsh environments and the hazards of the wildlands may spell death for others, but the sturdy oreads shrug off these threats and trudge onward, forging a path with their immense strength.
Many oreads instead choose a path of faith. They find refuge in rigid religious teachings and monastic discipline and find comfort in living true to routines that are set in stone. They become monks, clerics, inquisitors, and warpriests, dependable and resolute, and ever ready to help or protect those around them.
And yet some oreads find themselves on the path of war, either by choice or by circumstance, becoming fighters, slayers, and barbarians. Perfect warriors, any war leader would consider oreads a dream to command and a nightmare to defend against. They hit like a sledgehammer, and trample through enemy ranks with ease. They prefer to wear the hardest and heaviest armor available, as it is scarcely a burden to them. Still, should an enemy ever pierce that armor, their weapon will find only skin of stone underneath.
Recent additions to our roster of available races have been more about dexterity and subtlety, and we hope that oreads will balance this out with their brutal strength and perseverance.
To arms, crusaders!
