    Tags: Owlcat Games; Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous

    It's nearly 4 AM in Moscow and the Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Kickstarter campaign just reached its Mythic Paths stretch goal. Because Owlcat apparently don't ever sleep, they immediately published the Kickstarter update for the next stretch goal at $845,000. As expected it's for a new race, or more accurately for a new furry race. Catfolk, Ratfolk or Kitsune - backers will get to decide which one after the campaign ends.

    Do you sometimes look at the choice of races in fantasy games and think: “That’s not enough”? Do you yearn for more? For something less conventional? You’re in luck, for reaching this stretch goal will allow us to implement a whole new race that differs dramatically from the ordinary humans and their ilk. Which race will it be? Well, this time the choice will be yours — after the Kickstarter campaign ends, every backer will be able to vote on which of the three races you want us to add to the game. Choose wisely, as only one of the following races will make the cut.

    The first available choice is the catfolk, a race of natural explorers whose curiosity knows no bounds. Their trailblazing is not limited to searching for new horizons in distant lands; they are just as likely to find themselves on a quest for personal growth and enlightenment. Or pondering solutions to age-old problems, and questioning even the most entrenched philosophical certainties of the day. Or finding and composing new songs and stories. Or even accomplishing what no one else has ever dared to try before. Nimble, capable, and curious, these charismatic and often energetic creatures make for perfect bards, rogues, sorcerers, and oracles.

    The second choice is the ratfolk — a race of small, rodent-like humanoids renowned for their natural cunning. Masters of commerce, especially when it comes to mechanical or magical devices, ratfolk can now be seen everywhere on Golarion. Their small stature is their most striking feature and their greatest vulnerability, so ratfolk shy away from engaging larger foes in contests of strength, preferring to achieve victory with their natural intelligence and agility. A ratfolk is ideally equipped to be an alchemist, wizard, or rogue, and sometimes even a magus or witch.

    The third choice is the kitsune, or fox folk — a race of vulpine shapeshifters known for their love of both trickery and art. Kitsune possess two forms: a human form and their true form, that of an anthropomorphic fox. Kitsune prize loyalty among their friends but delight in good-natured mischief and trickery. They take pleasure in the pursuit of creative arts and in all forms of competition, especially the telling of stories interwoven with tall tales and falsehoods. Keenly interested in adding their own names to the myths and legends of explorers and heroes of old, Kitsune adventurers make excellent bards, rogues, oracles, and sorcerers.

    Whatever your choice will be, we believe that any one of these races will make a fun and colorful addition to the game, and we eagerly await the results of the poll, which will take place after the end of the campaign.

    Good luck, crusaders, and ready yourself to make a choice.
    We'll see if the furries are worth enough to hit this stretch goal by the end of tomorrow. It looks like the next stretch goal might be related to animals too.

    I don't know anything about Pathfinder, but the ratfolk sound the coolest to me. I liked the rat people in Wizardry.

    Yep. The only right choice is the DarthRoxorfolk ratfolk. All people who support anything but the ratfolk should be banned from Codex.

    Even if that is the case, that is no reason for stopping a good deed.
