If I recall Admiral Jole is responsible for the Sergyar sector

I always enjoyed reading his posts. He really was a great example of what I love about Paizo and the industry in general. smart creative people trying to bring more fun to their fellow gamers. RIP.

They have finally fixed the infamous unreachable hinterlands mosaic piece. Completionists everywhere rejoice!

While I found Cryoburn the low point of the series, I have to point out that Captain Vorpatil's alliance has some very funny moments.


that is very very encouraging. I love it when some minor detail from the first adventure has significance in adventure 4

Why did Spiderman never join the avengers? If he was important enough to be in the Secret wars I would have thought the avengers would be happy to have him. How is hawkeye in and he wasn't?

I am part of a Pathfinder group that plays every Saturday. Recently we lost two of our full time players and are looking to add a few new faces.

The campaigns we have been running are set in Golarian, the current one in the River kingdoms. It's been a lot of fun, and we want to continue in that area, but the DM has some interesting retrofiting so new players can start at the ground floor.

Demographics wise are all in our 40's but are willing to take any age/gender who has a genuine interest in playing. The main requirement I guess is the ability to be avilable consistantly to play. As I mentioned we try to play once a week on the weekend for 4-5 hours, or longer if people can stay longer.

A side note, we have been trying out the mythic rules set, so the basic players book, the APG and mythic rules would be helpful to have.

Location is not set, we had been playing in the NW but our host has been disloctaed by the oil patch upheavel so we haven't yet set a new base of operations yet. Once we have some player interest, we can choose a location convenient to everyone.

Anyway, if there is any interest please message me and provide some background about yourself.


Finished Finally..197 hours..that is exploring every region every side quest, ever NPC personal mission, did not get all the mosaics, only complted 1 of 5 sets, was missing 1-2 from the rest and was notg going to waste more time on them. only missed 1 of the bottles. Killed 11 dragons total. Lvl 24. Lvl 18 Perks.

Exhuasted but from an entertainment value perspective 60 bucks wenta long long way..

And without spoiling things, Bioware did a Marvel so sit through the 5 minute long credits for a final surprising cut scene.

what i want to know is why Solas disapproves of almost all my judgments..its annoying

Killed my 10th dragon, lvl 24 now, finished the ball, just a whole bunch of NPC side quests and then i think its endgame mission for me

Lvl 23, 9/10 dragons dead..going for the final one tonight, after i finish the orlais winter palace drama.

True, I was pleasantly surprised that Jackson didn't kill more dwarves, as I had expect him to. Sticking to just those in the books was a nice nod.

Now expect that if they give him enough money, we'll see a movie about the brief retaking of Mordor and the fall of Balin.

you mean the retaking of Moria right?

It strikes me that the villains of the stories would have much better luck if they operated in NYC or Boston or LA, basically anywhere but Chicago.

I kept hearing about this series and about 10 years ago made a concerted effort to buy the entire series as a collectible.

It was interesting that the hardest to find books were the weakest in the series(i.e. #15 -22). I read them all once since I bought them but really beyond #6 they get quiet tedious.

I have read a lot of fantasy/scifi in my time, and in the grand scheme of things, not a lot stands out aside from the sexism/slave girls theme.

Still, I suspect if I went and sold them I would double or triple my investment.

Last evening the Vinsomer went down,after about 40 min battle and every potion i had. But i haven't understood why the ps4 didn't save the gameplay ; i take a video of every slain high dragon but couldn't with this one and i don't know why, i fast traveled to skyhold after the fight and the ps4 recorded the game from there,skipping everything from immediately before the dragon fight.

So now "only" 6 high dragons to go.

hah..last night I took out 2 high dragaons in relatively short order and then decided to take out the only other one I knew off..Vinsomer..

I wouldn't say I went in unprepared but within the first 5 minutes it was clear I would not prevail given my current gear. Its the only time I have loaded a saved game other than from a crash.

Very true, I swapped out my ATI card for a NVIDIA card after having problems installing the game. Even though my NVIDia card is 4 years old the game runs pretty smoothly..resolution at 65% though as at 100% things slow to a crawl

Lots of little things bugged me about the movie. I had wondered where the goats came from, but what really got me was Thandruil having an army of golden armored bowmen, and yet when he is leaving dale none of the elves behind him had any gold armour..

lots of little things jarred it for me.

but Legolas CGI specials were the worst. I actually groaned out loud in a crowded theatre when i saw one particular sequence.

Overall, I'll rate it 7/10 for its mindless entertainment value, far better than any of the star wars prequels but just as guilty in its overuse of CGI.

Frush O Smuggil looks forward to this product

Human Illusionist with the name Bleep Wurp the ear biter

I was just curious what peoples favorite sci fiction/fantasy cartoons from the 1970/80's were. For me, my prime formative years and influenced my tastes into Adulthood.

In terms of my favorite 10:

1. Star Blazers
2. Robotech/Macross saga
3. Flash Gordon by Animation
4. Thundaar The barbarian
5. Spiderman and his amazing friends
6. Battle of the Planets
7. Superman and the justice league
8. Voltron defender of the universe
9. He-man
10. D&D

Anyone find more than 10 of the 12 mosaic pieces for the Hinterlands?

Given how his father is the king of the Mirkwood elves, it entirely makes sense he would be around..but yes, as a minor supporting role, not the over exposure he is getting.

Bought 2 of the Vong books. I hated them immensely. Hard to finish, just didn't feel like star wars. Much preferred the 12+ books of the rogue squadron series.

That being said, really liked how the Legacy comic series incorporated the Vong impact

Totally guessing:

3 kings?

Andorian, because that is where the undead Kobold King reigns.

Time to roll up some characters:

1. Frush o Smuggil
2. Bleep wurp the eyebiter
3. Fonkin Hoddypeak
4. Flerd Trantle

Pretty original names - I am sure no one else has ever come up with them.

The strangest thing I have read in this thread so far is someone who noted they avoid using James Jacobs adventures, for me Smuggler's Shiv is the only really good aventure in the Serpents skull AP. To each his own I guess.

For Mummy's Mask, I do agree the the OP. I forsee my group wanting to be foreign Treasure seekers..Adventure 1 setps that up great..but why the blazes would they go risking their life by going into the desert to stop a cult from raising an ancient Pharoah. They would be more likely to get on the first boat back to Absolom.

In that respect, I still like the setup from the Desert of Desolation are ordered on pain of death to go into the desert to stop some raiders. If you succed or fail is irrelevant. You are foreigners and are expendable and are just proof the khan is doing something about the raiders.

I loved the Baldurs Gate games. They are still some of my all time favorites, but one of my few complaints about them is that for many parts you practically need a walkthrough or at least foreknowledge of what is to come, perfect tactics, and knowledge of where to get some items ahead of time that can very easily be missed. Even then after all that there are still fights you need tremendous amounts of luck and save scumming to hope to make it through. Even though I got through everything there were some fights I must have tried over fifty times to get past them, and that was when I was very well prepared for them.

If my memory is serving me correcting that golem was a real pain for me too.

Lilacor is the key..I do also remember giving a flail to Jaheiera (flail of ages)..but Lilacor was the main weapon which took the golem out.

FLT:"In the Winter of 1969, an elite force of the US Army was sent on a top secret assignment in Southeast Vietnam. The objective: rescue Sgt. Four Leaf Tayback from a heavily guarded NVA Prison Camp. The mission was considered to be near-suicide. Of the ten men sent, four returned. Of those four, three wrote books about what happened. Of those three, two were published. And of those two, only one got a movie deal. This is the story of the men who attempted to make that movie. "

Brienne in book 4 was not about her, or the enemies she faces, or anything else like that. It is solidly meaningless... unless you realize it's the way for GRRM to show us Crackclaw Point and the rest of that corner of Westeros.

GRRM does that a lot. He'll make someone a PoW character to give us an insight into what's going on in some part of the world, even if the character itself isn't doing anything interesting.

Imho Brienne's chapters are really more about exploring what the world on the wrong side of a castle wall looks like in wake of the war, than progressing any particular storyline.

The guys in charge might think the war is over, but the smallfolk probably disagree.

I enjoyed Brienne's chapters exactly because she was spending so much time just traveling through the "real" world.

That is exactly what much of Feast of Crows was for..showing the massive carnage war caused on the common people..hence lots of time spent on the grwoing number of Sparrows and why the Church is becoming stronger..the nobility won't care for the common people, but the church does.

Isle of Dread my favorite

Is it wrong that I read this thread now to see how many of Magnuskn's players show up as opposed to hear about the damage output? 4-5 seems to be the median but he has been getting a few 6 player sessions which sounds awesome (when I last Dm'd I had 5 players but usually could only rely on 3 every friday.

Excellent film.

Ben Hur is and will always likely be one of my top 10 films that I have ever seen. In fact it is probibly number 2 or 3 behind Star Wars and Empire.

For the last quote, well the first 3 quotes were all Heston films and so was it, although it is not as well known. Its like being a Mark Hamill fan and forgetting he did Corvette Summer.

C:"Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death. "

This is almost the easiest I've lobbe dout, but no one has done this movie yet:

There's nothing wrong with Fool Moon per say, it is just a set up book for the rest of the series..later books have more depth because of the ground work done earlier. Most of the books low in my ranking are early in the series.

2. Changes
3. Turn Coat
4. Small Favor

In 2nd ed, you just started to find librams of gainful conjuration around 6 or 7th lvel, but the killer was holding onto them until 11th lvl or otherwise you were wasting them..

1. libram of Gainful conjuration =2 (I4, I5)
2. Libram of silver magic =1 (I5)
3. Libram of evil mu =1 (I3)

not to mention tome of cleart thought and tome of bodily health (I5).

F: I told my wife I wouldn't drink tonight. Besides, I got a big day tomorrow. You guys have a great time.

CS: A big day? Doing what?

F: Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.

RB: Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's vagina.

VC: No, there's no way that's correct.

RB: I'm sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don't know what it means. I'll be honest, I don't think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.

VC: Doesn't it mean Saint Diego?

RB: No. No.

VC: No, that's - that's what it means. Really.

RB: Agree to disagree.

H:"I wasn't like every other kid, you know, who dreams about being an astronaut, I was always more interested in what bark was made out of on a tree. Richard Gere's a real hero of mine. Sting. Sting would be another person who's a hero. The music he's created over the years, I don't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, I respect that. I care desperately about what I do. Do I know what product I'm selling? No. Do I know what I'm doing today? No. But I'm here, and I'm gonna give it my best shot. "
