Random poll.. I am itching to start GMing another game here.. I am trying to decide which of two APs to run.. Whichever I end up picking I will need to read up on and finalize.. but if you all had to vote.. which would you vote for?

Carrion Crown - Horror, Lovecraft, Works with intrigue and Occult stuff. RP heavy..

or

War for the Crown - RP heavy too. Supposed to have a James Bond feel. You have not not want to steal your own power, willing to help someone else gain power.

They both look interesting to me and I might run them.. Just curious what others think. Might help me narrow it down a bit..

War for the Crown seems really popular for all the podcasts I hear about. I only have the Starfinders books so I couldn't tell you as a player which I'd chose. To me they both sound like they would be fun to play in. Of course I would need a little help making characters for either game. But I'd certainly play in any game you DM Nex ;)

I've heard good things on both, and would certainly be interested either way.

My initial thoughts are that I'm leaning towards Carrion Crown. While I was on vacation I decided to pick up a Pathfinder novel, Bloodbound (first TTRPG book I've read actually), which was set in Ustalav. So I'd certainly be interested in exploring the region more. It seemed neat, and I think there is an appeal to me of trying to play some sort of Monster Hunter, occult researcher/investigator, etc sort of character.

Conversely, I have little to no experience with War for the Crown or Taldor. Of course, as said, I'm totally open to it. James Bond, Court Spy, GoT, Conspiracy, and Intrigue are all ideas that spark my imagination.

I'll read through the Player's Guides and see if anything really speaks to me, but those are my thoughts.

I am currently a player in a Carrion Crown game on these boards. We have finished Book 1 and are in the first part of Book 2. I've never read it. From what I've experienced, Carrion Crown offers fantastic atmosphere, and a very creepy, suspenseful setting in Book 1. I'm loving it.

I know next to nothing of War for the Crown, but I've enjoyed other intrigue-inspired material from Paizo (Curse of the Crimson Throne). PbP is a great format for this, b/c you can showcase subtleties that wouldn't be very clear in live game.

I think I am going to read up on Carrion Crown. Might start a PbP game as well as a small game with my wife and friend. Each playing 2 characters.

Time to get reading..

I will let you all know if I make a new game!

Well, I may be biased, but I'm partial to Carrion Crown. I did write Chapter 5, after all. ;)

Additionally, if you have any interest in going that route, another game company I represent (i.e., Legendary Games) published a set of 8 pre-generated Level 1 characters that use the traits from the Player's Guide for Carrion Crown, each one tailored to have some immediate connections with the AP's plot. It's called Gothic Heroes and you can purchase it here in PDF form, if you want.

They also appear in a hardbound book called the Gothic Campaign Compendium which was purposefully designed to support the Carrion Crown AP. It includes new monsters, a couple of extra side trek adventures, new magic items, spells, you name it...

Bottom line, there's a lot more support material out there for Carrion Crown from Legendary Games, and nearly all of it was written by many of the same authors that also wrote for Paizo on that particular AP.

FYI, I'm headed to GenCon tomorrow. I won't know my exact internet situation, so I may or may not be able to keep up my posting rate. Feel free to bot me, as necessary. If any of you are going to be in Indianapolis for the show, swing by the Paizo booth and say hello. I don't know my exact work schedule, but I'll certainly be rocking the Paizo blue across all 4 days.

Haha yes, I knew you're a contributor but didn't realize you'd authored an entire Book. Very cool!

Totally understandable! Hope it goes well.

I am super excited to try the play test. Hopefully it gets some good love at Gencon

Well I could not stop myself. I am going to GM a Doomsday dawn Pathfinder Playtest game.

Here is the link to the recruitment:
http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2v9nc?P2E-DM-Nexs-Doomsday-Dawn#1

If any of you are curious about the playtest you should submit. I always like playing with people I know.

This sounds fun! But, I've already agreed to play the module with another group, so I'll decline with regrets.

I've got mixed feelings about the new rules, but I'm definitely looking forward to trying them out!

I certainly have interest. I'll think on it and just might drop an app into your recruitment thread.

Somehow I missed this post. My RSS must have tricked me, I only saw the last one.

Well that answers it then.. I am going to do the Playtest, but I am also reading Carrion Crown. I actually already started, I think it will be a good game to pick up with my wife and friend, as well as on PbP.

I should avoid picking up more games, but a few more can't really hurt, right?

I will check out the Legendary Games stuff. I actually played a bit of their Starfinder AP.

Do you mean the Legendary Planet AP? I served as the Creative Director for that project and we've done it in Pathfinder, 5e, and Starfinder formats now. We have one more adventure to go before we complete the entire AP, and Jason Nelson is working on it now. Once he's done, we'll be releasing it in a hardbound format of 700+ pages. All told, I think it'll become the largest book we've done. However, at GenCon, there were some discussions about possibly separating it into two individual books...one for the adventures, and another with all the support articles and serialized fiction. We'll see how things shake out, but I'm glad to know folks are checking it out.

Contributor, RPG Superstar 2009, RPG Superstar Judgernaut

Also, FYI...I'm winging my way back from Indy today. Just answering a few emails and messageboard posts from the airport before boarding my flight. The new Pathfinder Playtest was very well-received by those who participated in the demos at GenCon. Lots of positive things were shared, even by some of those who initially doubted it. I know there are still a lot of naysayers on the internet (judging by some of the vitriol I've seen on the messageboards), but honestly, don't knock it until you try it. There's a lot of good stuff coming in it.


Website with game info

Yeah we played half of Legendary Planet's first book using Starfinder. For some reason my players felt a bit disconnected. Partly we just play in Paizo's world so much, even with Starfinder being in the future, it felt so different. We kinda decided it didn't feel "right" with the Starfinder system. Learning it was out for 5E and Pathfinder we all agreed it might actually feel better in one of those systems. I am still curious about the story. But I think we put it down. At least as a Starfinder game. Might pick it back up again at some point in another system though. So many games!

I am glad it exists. And maybe with another group it would work. I have been tempted to try GMing it on PBP. I think it would work well. I actually started playing it here, but the GM bailed out when players were giving eachother too hard a time. So I decided to buy it myself and try it with my wife and friend.

Good to hear about the Playtest. I am still super excited about it, I know it has its faults. There is quite a bit of vocal people on Reddit and here that have issues, but I think overall it looks great.

I have a recruitment for Doomsday Dawn here. I am going to dive in face first. :)

Yep. I saw. Looks like you have a LOT of interest for it already. I'm still getting up to speed on it, too. It might be nice to play through on PbP with you, but I don't want to take away a spot from someone else.


Website with game info

Yeah I am still learning. Sounds like like you might have the most experience out of us though. So I wouldn't say you should avoid submitting.

Plus there are way too many goblins and way too may people picking mindquake survivor. haha

Contributor, RPG Superstar 2009, RPG Superstar Judgernaut

10-4. I'll see what I can come up with over the next couple of days. I've still got to decompress a bit from GenCon and reunite with family and co-workers at my day job. I'll let you know a definitive answer soon.

I haven't even begun to touch the 2e rules myself yet. If I have time I'll definitely apply with something. We just found out the new kitten we rescued (my fiancee is a Veterinarian so.... this happens) has some serious issues that need a complex surgery that she isn't willing to do. So a busy week with checking in with a local 24/7 Care Center and seeing what they will do.

Oh man. Good luck with that.

That type of thing is never fun.

For game. Resting, or checking out last room?

This is really cool. You've put a ton of work into this (and will continue to do so, by the looks of it)! You should absolutely put a link to this in your profile's tag line for easy access.

Couple things to note about our gear:

1. Zero G: Most suits of armor consist of a helmet, gloves, boots, and a bodysuit that offers head-to-toe protection. Unless otherwise specified, the boots include a functionality that can anchor your feet to a solid surface in a zero-gravity environment, allowing you to orient yourself or return to normal footing when needed. I think most of us would be able to take advantage of this feature, if needed.

2. Light source: A personal comm unit also includes a calculator, a flashlight (increases the light level one step in a 15-foot cone), and several entertainment options (including games and access to any local infospheres).

So I think we're covered (on a basic level) as to light.


Website with game info

Yeah, each of you should have a light source, true.

I generally am not a fan of dealing with light levels, so I guess it was more of an RP type thing.

As for the boots, yes when you stand still you can be secure to a wall, no problem. But moving around either takes a roll, or just assumed taking 20 when out of combat.

So if I'm using a move to move half speed, and it takes a standard to fix being off kilter from hitting the wall, is there much more I can do?


Website with game info

You can stay off kilter you still have a standard action. Just means you are semi awkward on the wall.

Actually, just do an acrobatics to see if you are off kilter in the first place.
