I have a new player starting and I'd like to get some feat and prestige class recommendations for her class and race, since this is a relatively new build combo. So far I'm thinking... Extra Arcane Pool, Intensity Spell and/or Improved Critical.

The Black Mist is supposed to be 20' by 60'. Besides there isn't any room to maneuver. The ship you created does look nice though.

*Shrugs* I didn't want a short, squat ugly ship and the adventure doesn't give much more detail than dimensions, so I did as I pleased.

We use miniatures. I want the river trip to include a few encounters, so I made a river barge in Campaign Cartographer 3. Power Word, Share! :D

One thing I really like about having put this product together is that we really give you something useful, in a small, package, for just pocket change. Each volume has a theme too. So, if a particular monster is coming up in your next adventure that just happens to fit our latest theme, you can pickup "Rawr!" for a song and make small changes to a monstrous foe that can make a big difference in enjoyment at the table, for players and GMs alike!

In my Homebrewed campaign/Kingmaker, the players are all monstrous and own a small village where monsters can live free, however they're in the middle of a council session so they will be setting up laws...but it's great fun! I just hope there will be option that my players can use from this.

What are some of the monster races they're playing? :)

Hello!

My name is Richard Hunt and I've worked for TPK Games for a little over a year now. I've even had the unique opportunity to run one of my adventures at GenCon this year: Silvermote! It was both an honor and a real blast!

Our next project is just on the cusp of release and I'm really exited to tell you all about it! Our new product is called Rawr!: A Handbook of Monstrous Malevolence and I'm the lead designer/author. Our whole team contributed a little something to the whole stack though, including Mr. Tom Phillips also of RPG Superstar infamy! :)

Rawr! is a completely monster-centric product containing monster advice, new feats, traits, templates and, of course, new, original monsters in print nowhere else! If you like monsters, love adding some punches on the battlefield or in the dungeon, or just kicking your monsters into a little higher gear, then this book is definitely rocket fuel for your encounters. We originally conceived of this as major new source book, but it grew too large! So, we discovered a way to do so much more and so we are!

I would really like to invite everyone to check it out when it's released!

-Rich

Wow everyone seems to just think point buy is where it is at. I love rolling for stats in my group. You do not end up with cookie cutter characters. The old 4d6 drop the lowest method is what we use. A lot of the time you do not even know what you are going to play till you roll your stats and see what you got.

I don't know maybe I am just old school lol I have been playing D&D for 27 years now lol. I still have my old red box, blue box for D&D.

You and I share the same philosophy. I won't use point buy ever, in fact we use this same method and I'm old school as well. :)

At a minimum you need to have the players roll in front of your face.

A fairer way to do rolling is to have each player roll 2 sets of stats.
But any player can choose any other players set of stats.

I allow a maximum of 3 sets, pick the best set. This usually results in characters with mixed +/- stats. I like characters to have some flaws and bumps rather than being Star Trek TNG perfect. Lol. Point buy to me is like RPG eugenics! :-)

Andoran RPG Superstar 2010 Top 8

Resolution: The player has dropped from the game and the character is now an NPC. The group is already aware that the character will be making some sort of exit. My plan is to pump up the "diminutive" Azlanti Idols in area X3 and make them full sized constructs who really, really hate fire. Rin will be going out with a bang! :)

By the way, I have a very agreeable group and we're good friends. Even if I did need to ask for rebuilds or anything like that they would do it for me, so I don't really need to strong arm anyone.

I do happen to agree with the consensus that the stats are cheated.

Finally, does it say somewhere in the AP that characters should be point buy or how the characters should be built? I'm accustomed to seeing that information before the adventure background? In any case, I'm old school and will always use dice for stats.

Okay I'm satisfied that the class is fine and not over-powered. I think the real issue is that he's operating above the other characters in the party who have a different build philosophy. Their stats also don't look ridiculous. So, I think what I need instead is some good counter to the oracle without killing the rest of the party.

the problem at this sort of level is baddies struggle with flying opponents quite often, especially in the mostly outdoor SerSku.

I have a level 7 witch in that and flying is most helpful

this guys AC is terrible. My gnome oracle 1 in Carrion Crown started off with 20, 21?, and my 1/2e lvl 7 one in PFS is around high 20's pre-buff i think.
He should deff have swapped in warden of nature

oracles can rapidly be good arcane-like

His AC is terrible because I actually managed to rid him of his good magical armor during a failed Swim.

How did you do stat generation? Because by my math, that gnome has a 56 Point Buy, which could go a long way towards explaining why he seems really powerful. Especially if everybody else has a more reasonable statline and the Gnome is only one with that much to play with.

I never use point buy. He started with these stats:

Str 15, Dex 14, Con 15, Int 17, Wis 15, Cha 18

Gnome gets: +2 Constitution, +2 Charisma, –2 Strength
4th level buy: +1 Constitution

No, I didn't see him roll either. I generally go with the honor system since anyone that would b+!~##!* stats to "win" a roleplaying game is a dolt anyway. Lol.

What are the other PCs like?

The other players don't build for power or combat, so theirs are more average and fit better into the AP's planned combats.

Yeah, okay, I'm kinda confused. How is this gnome OP? Its stats are waaaay outta wack, but there doesn't seem to be much cause for concern. It's got an AC of 18 and mediocre saves. HP is a bit high from the ridiculous stats, but still fairly squishy.

I'm thinking that maybe the character isn't OP at all, but rather syncing too well with your particular playstyle as a DM. Flame oracles function best as blasters, and blasters function best when DMs throw lots of lower-HP monsters in nearby swarms.

This oracle would struggle more if you used enemies with more HP, fewer enemies, or used "mixing tactics" and got the enemies within the ranks of your party. This can be as simple as having an enemy bee-line for a caster or flanking the melee; neither of which are unusual for pack-mentality or intelligent creatures. How can you successfully cast an area spell when you're going to hit the healer?

Normally I would agree, but I think part of the trouble is I'm sort of stuck running what's in the AP for enemies, not that I haven't made modifications, mind you. Actually that's exactly what's happening. I think I'm going to have to kick it up a notch. The trouble is the other characters won't be able to handle what the oracle can handle.

Andoran RPG Superstar 2010 Top 8

I'm currently running the Serpent's Skull AP and having some trouble with one of the character builds. Even the player confesses that the character build is over-powered.

The core of the issue is that the character easily flips combat roles and does all of them really well. He's stealing the show and the party relies on him way too much. He can heal like a cleric, he can wear even heavy armor (he's not wearing the best he can get...yet), he can front-line fight and beats the crap out of things pretty well, and he can even fill a wizard's shoes with all his fire spells and abilities. he can even bloody well fly.

Wayfinder, standard (empty) A small magical device patterned off ancient relics of the Azlanti, a wayfinder is typically made from silver and bears gold accents. With a command word, you can use a wayfinder to shine (as the light spell). The wayfinder also acts as a nonmagical (magnetic) compass, granting you a +2 circumstance bonus on Survival checks to avoid becoming lost. All wayfinders include a small indentation designed to hold a single ioun stone. An ioun stone slotted in this manner grants you its normal benefits (as if it were orbiting your head), but frequently reveals entirely new powers due to the magic of the wayfinder itself (see Seeker of Secrets page 51).

I'm having some trouble deciding how to rectify the matter without resorting to plot trickery (i.e. having a demon appear since he's really good with flame). I've dealt with imbalances in D&D 3.5, but nothing as all encompassing as this. Suggestions?

Yeah, but at this point all 4 of them will be writing something (if they so choose), so we're now deciding which of the 4 proposals we (the fan base) want to see made in a module. And by that logic I have to look at any comments that say "This module will probably not end up like this proposal".

This adventure is hands down the WINNER for me! I also love all the fantastic elements presented in this proposal. Not since the wild days of Planescape has there been a creative leap into another plane I actually WANT to see! This isn't just another "save the town" adventure or even another novel trek into the underwater deeps, but a true quest into the unknown to stop some really badass adversaries from changing the world with their evil plans--even if the plane is other than Leng, even if the companions are other than giants. This adventure is about stopping the (re)birth of a god! How cool is that!? "The Scarlet God" definitely gets my vote! Void Motes? Devouring Geometry? Yes! WIN! Man, I really hope we're done with Serpent's Skull by the time this hits the shelves!

I would like to see a relatively simple set of rules for determining the availability of equipment on the fly. Some rules for determining the legality of items such as drugs, alcohol, firearms, loaded dice, etc. would be cool too.

Also, I would like to see the following thief/spy type items:

+ Pin/Razor Ring (deliver poison/cut ropes or paper)
+ Aniseed/Dog Pepper/Cat Stink (throw animals off scent)
+ Blinding Powder
+ Metal-Eating Acid
+ Footpad Boots
+ Silenced Armor
+ Glass Cutter
+ Cane Sword/Dagger and Spring-Loaded/Surprise Weapons
+ Blowpipe (smoking pipe, but also a blowgun or delivers powdered poisons)
+ Boot/Wrist Sheaths
+ Mini-Telescope/Lock Scope
+ Paste Gemstones
+ Acrobatic equipment (tightrope walking, cat burglary, etc.)
+ Alchemical Gear (smoke bombs, capsules, poisoned tooth, etc.)
+ Additional Animal Training options (monkey thief lol)

Well geographically... [i]So my recommendation it to run it as a followup to the AP - as they are celebrating their big win and just scale it to level 16.

I agree. You do want to be careful an not derail your AP. Silvermote does contain some serious treasures. I'd recommend using Temerlyth and his lair like paint to touch up and enhance the experience. :)

The Shudderwoods in haunted Ustalav, where the adventure path is set, seems like the perfect choice, with the nearby Worldwound being a good second choice. The demonic powers there would give Temerlyth a run for his money though yet provide a good reason for him to stay hidden. In the latter case, the twisted fey of the Shudderwoods adds additional flavor to Temerlyth's being an elven lich.

Recall that Temerlyth loves a bit of court intrigue. He'd be tempted to dabble in the political affairs of Ustalav, maybe even going so far as to act as an occasional adviser to the powers that be. Temerlyth could most certainly by involved somehow in "Broken Moon," the 3rd piece of the AP. You could use him to help weaker parties through a side quest to his lair for legendary objects or advice on dealing with werewolves. He would certainly take an interest in the werewolf lord's death and in the doings of the cult of the Whispering Way. They'd most certainly be interested in him! Temerlyth could appear against stronger parities, as competitors for lycanthropic flesh. Remember, he likes to experiment...

The Sinister Secrets of Silvermote adventure also features an interesting NPC aristocrat whose nationality could certainly be made Ustalivic too ;)

Thanks very much for the review, Wizard, I much appreciate it. Out of interest, what would have made it a five-star product for you?

Honestly, I had trouble deciding. There are certainly no flaws so it's a five star product as far as quality is concerned. I gave it four stars for basically two reasons: it fills a very small niche and the price is a little high when considering the small place it fills. Still, much effort went into this so it was certainly hard to judge. I liked most of the line art, the first piece (the cat) being the best. Not all the pieces are as good, but it just can't have been easy to fit the art to the text.

P.S. This is such a small thing but it was nice to see the word 'doddle' in use as well as real English spelling. Sometimes products lack personality or linguistic interest and so "Wondrous Treasures" was certainly not dry or dull either. I think you've also organized your product lines in a very thoughtful and intelligent way and I really do like the absence of flashy design.

You are absolutely right. I'd happily provide free review copies to anyone who would give Raging Swan's products fair reviews. I deeply appreciate everyone who takes the time to review one of my products, but with more reviews come more opnions and more opportunities to create better products in the future!

Speaking as a publisher: please, please, please post reviews. You are absolutely right that there aren't enough. If it's a good review, great! If it's a bad review, it gives insight into what to improve or fix. Win/win.

Speaking as a player: I tend to buy from Paizo if I'm not buying from a FLGS and the product is available at the Paizo site. For two reasons: first, it's the only place to get Paizo products online that I know of. Second: I know that Paizo gives 3PP a better rate than RPGNow or DriveThruRPG. ;)

Would it be considered a conflict of interest if, since I work for a game company, to review competing products. I've fair and balanced capability but don't want to cause myself or others any grief.

I was just wondering, where does everyone go to buy compatible stuff? I typically go to Paizo because I like having all my previous downloads available.

I've purchased from DriveThruRPG/RPGNow too, but usually only if it's not available here. I've never bought from EN World, but am discovering they have a lot of great things too. Are there other places everyone likes to shop for compatible products?

It also seems like there's not enough reviewers. Do you all think that's true? I was even thinking about doing some reviews myself because there are some great (and inexpensive) products out there. I'm not sure how that would be received though.

I recently wrote Temerlyth the Undying and as his author/creator I just have to say that... well, I am such marketing noob. Haha! I really would like to understand the gears of the 3PP world much better than I do.
