"Anubis, Guardian of the Tomb, who is looking mighty sexy for the beefcake lovers out there."

If you are in to guys with dog heads you're Set. Get it? See what I did there?

Sorry, climbing back in to my hole now.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Perhaps the more important question is do we know what they look like under the wrappings?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Sold! Again, my thanks.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So perhaps that relationship might not work out. Thanks Rob for the help.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I have a question. Is Wati meant to be a base of operations for the PCs? It seems like they will be here a lot. Also, one of my players wants to make a move on Sebti. Does she feature prominently in future installments in any way that would prohibit me from allowing that relationship?

Thanks.

Wait, crud, found it. I thought this was part of my subscription but sadly....sniff*...I was wrong.

Odd. I have the notice from last week about getting part 2 of Mummy's Mask shipping this week but nothing was mentioned about the book. In the past they get bundled together typically. Is there a way to check and see if this is part of my subscription service?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I just ran the intro to this AP for my players and they are near the half way point of the first site. I used the history of Wati in the Wati section and paraphrased it. As for the invocation, I said the lottery started with a prayer and then went in to the actual opening fluff. No one really cared that I didn't have something more specific for that part of it.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I see what you did there.

The thing I really wanted, after reading it, was more info about the other adventuring groups. A paragraph or two about the various members of those groups or interesting locals don't require stats or additional math and would have more worth to me at least.

I second that. Your writing is spot on. Like many I believe that fiction belongs in novels and not adventures. I think if a survey were conducted about what people want in the APs and gave us optional choices to the fiction I'm not sure the fiction would be the top choice.

This was the first fiction I've read that I felt was relevant. Why? Because it detailed a place I will be using in the adventure. With that said, I would prefer to toss out the fiction all together and replace it with smaller fun facts about locations in the setting that help make a place more interesting and personal to the players. It's those small details that help paint the picture of a living breathing community.

I'm also a fan of more adventure material as others have stated here. I think it would be cool to have a section dedicated to side quests. Perhaps small events that help flesh out the setting or story.

I just got it!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

You may want to check mine as well. Not that there was a problem mind you, I just really really want this AP. :)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Sweeeeeeet.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Did I hear a rumor correctly that we might be getting some early info on Osirian's old gods this week?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Has this started shipping out to subscribers yet?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hi. I'm wondering what thoughts any of you might have about the Sand Shaper from the Sandstorm book being open to priests. Would this be too unbalancing?

Thanks.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Agreed. Much appreciated.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Still no Tuesday blog up yet. Cross those fingers people.

Oracle of stone, going into the Living Monolith prestige class.

That's pretty solid. Wait, with or without a Fez?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Rob if you were playing this AP yourself with friends and had to pick a class what would you play?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So subscribers should get it around the 15th or so?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Sigh... I just noticed the first adventure got pushed back a month.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I am so freakin' stoked for this AP. Does anyone have a ballpark ETA on when we'll the Player's Guide?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Just out of curiosity, are all of your graphic designers in-house?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Do we know if this is still on track for a February release or is this getting pushed back to March?

Good to hear!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Geb. Lots and lots of Geb.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Awesome ideas so far guys, thanks.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hello all. I'm looking to build a party of Halloween themed characters for a short game I'm running this weekend. Witch is a given, as is the voodoo Oracle theme, but what other class/race combos would be fun? For example, is their a way to build a jack o' lantern type character? Plant-based creature? Is their a way to make this an alchemist who throws pumpkin bombs? What about bat themed or something else iconic to this Holiday?

any help is appreciated. Thanks.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

They can summon, yes.

I agree somewhat with the original post's perspectives. The thing that we lack the most are generic prestige classes not tied to the Golarian setting. I like some of the setting specific ones but they are very binding flavor-wise. Yes, as a GM I can tailor them to my needs but I don't have time for that. Just give me some non-setting specific prestige classes and I will be happy.

As far as feats go, I think we have enough and then some.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

My guys are working on that this week. I can report back on that this weekend.

The party consisted of one paladin of Iomedai, a cleric, a monk, a wizard, and a rogue.

As for hindsight, one thing I did at the end, because they were a pretty tough group, was to allow them to try to get through the end fight at level 4. Yes, I could have leveled them to five but they were clipping along at a solid pace and the best part, because they had burned through all of their spells and were dangerously low on potions, was it boiled down to a photo finish and they were under the belief the whole time that they were inches away from a TPK. I don't kill groups, and rarely characters, but they didn't know that.

Ultimately that harrowing desperate finish made it feel that much more satisfying for them.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

With a 25 point build per character and 5 characters total, we completed it. Hats off to Amber for an amazing finish that gave my players a very memorable session. If anyone has questions feel free to ask but I ran the adventure with very little modification other than compensating for higher builds and additional player.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Here's my semi-loaded question for the AP devs. Is Queen Galfrey a romance possibility for a PC? I know that technically anything is possible but how much of an impact would it have on the story and would it derail it at all?

I think it's important to remember two very important things:

1. This country (the USA) is undergoing a radical philosophical change when it come to the LGBT community. Other countries are as well. What was once, and sadly still is, seen as sexual deviancy in many cultures is now being seen for what it is. Namely that sexual preference is not a choice but it is how we are wired. Logically more and more people are getting this and with time this won't even be a blip on the social radar. That's the good news. The bad news is tolerance isn't a light switch. It takes time. Sometimes multiple generations.

I understand that everyone wants to be accepted for who they are but you cannot realistically expect everyone to embrace it just because you want it NOW. That is the crux of this problem. One side is saying "Go, go, go! Equality now!!!" Not everyone on the other side is entirely comfortable with that yet. They get it logically but it's hard to shake off the institutionalized belief that homosexuality is wrong.

2. Paizo is in a weird spot. The important NPCs in the APs need to be fleshed out. That means they have to give us as complete a view of these characters as they can in just a page or two. I think I now have a better understanding of the position they are in. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

It's tough and I don't envy the decisions they make sometimes. Yes, the LGBT world is scary to people not in it and for those of you who are I understand your want for tolerance now. Please understand that when people raise the agenda flag or flat out say they hate the inclusion of these characters it comes from a place of fear and ignorance. This is a fast moving social shift that requires a lot of understanding on both sides and it's important to respect each other's perspectives without calling each other names.

I'm doing my part by telling my kids it's no big deal and that, I think, is the most important thing.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Will we get a Mythic version of the snap Dragon spell? Man I hope so.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I think that's my problem James in a nut shell. We went, foolishly, with a higher point build and one additional player. I tried compensating by adding addition enemies here and there but they still plowed. In a way the first part helped me gauge how much to throw at them but my big concern is later on when they hit uber status and start getting up in levels. I'm worried I might over compensate and the whole thing ends in a TPK.

Hey everyone, I ran chapter 1 on saturday and we're just getting to the start of chapter 2. So far it has been smooth sailing. My only complaint is that I found all of the fights in part one to be pretty easy and not all that challenging. Granted, the characters are feeling out how combat works and the group dynamic but most fights were whack, splat, done.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I also dabbled this weekend with the class in a quasi-tournament style and had almost the exact same thing happen. I was up against a barbarian and got thoroughly trounced. maneuvering was my biggest issue. I couldn't properly set myself up for certain attacks because the barbarian player countered really well. I did land a couple criticals but not enough to win the battle.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I agree that more options are needed. I wonder if the fine developers had a few extra they could toss our way that didn't make it in?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I copied out sections of the city guide from the part 1, screened anything for spoilers and shared that with my players. I'm not sure why this wasn't in the player's guide as it is pretty innocuous.

Traditionally I have found martial classes to be boring. The 3.5 fighter was plain vanilla and the barbarian not much better than that. The original TOB was a breath of fresh air. It swept aside boring and gave us something exciting. Then came 3.75 and now the fighter is much more in line with what I would imagine they should be and for the first time in a long time I enjoy playing a fighter.

Now with that said, I will happily and readily set the fighter aside for any of the TOB classes without looking back. Nothing against the new fighter, but I looooove martial/magic classes. My concern with the feedback thus far, and their have been good points made, is that in an effort to balance the warlord class their is a chance of over correcting and making them less efficient and killing the overall fun of playing them in the first place. Please don't let the loudest and most repetitive voices water down these classes because they have an unspoken agenda to make these classes mediocre.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hi. Just like it says, I'm wondering if their is an ideal demon killing build any of you might recommend. Thanks.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Can someone give Peter a hug, because, wow, that's a lot of insulting rage.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Cough*....Swordsage equivalent...


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Glad to hear it. I enjoy them as well. And my second question? ;)
