Pillars of Eternity (formerly Project Eternity) is their 'spiritual successor' to the old Baldur's Gate games. It's set in its own IP, so I doubt they're switching it to Pathfinder's Golarion. My only guess is a Pathfinder cRPG. I really hope it's an actual cRPG and not a game meant for mobile devices.
I can't help but imagine a group of some worn-out, rather elderly adventurers, addicted to the effects of the Haste spell after years of over-use and performing tasks for payment in scrolls of Haste.
That would definitely be the case quickly if this were still 1st edition AD&D--if I remember right, haste actually aged you a year for every casting.
Was it a recent publication or a recent re-publication? Because I remember reading Tolkien's Beowulf translation in high school.
EDIT: Or maybe I'm thinking of Tolkien's translation of Gawain and the Green Knight. Since apparently all the news releases on the Beowulf translation say this is the first time it was published.
You know, I'd never heard of Night of the Lepus until a coworker at the library mentioned it a few months back.
I think several adventuring companies in Forgotten Realms (Knights of Eveningstar/Myth Drannor and Company of Crazed Venturers) are former PCs. The way I understand it, several of the Paizo staff's characters made it into APs, and I think include a couple of iconics. So in theory your PC could end up in a written supplement (probably not a novel though).
I agree though, R.A. Salvatore's novels have been crap for at least a decade. The last ones I enjoyed were Siege of Darkness and its post-Dark Elf Trilogy sequels.
In our tabletop mythic game, one player is playing a drow female on the surface of Golarion. I partially blame Salvatore for making non-evil drow PCs "cool"--I hate Drizzt so much.
Honestly I love high-level campaigns, even in PFRPG. It just requires more thought, and often the focus of the campaign shifts away from combat.
I really want to use the Mythic rules as PFRPG's 'epic' rules, but so far my tabletop GM seems convinced that they are best used before then. Mind you, so far the mythic campaign (currently level 4/tier 2) we're in feels incredibly overpowered to me...which is probably a great deal why I think it's better to use the mythic tiers as tacked-on ad hoc levels 21-30.
