Hm, sounds interesting... I hope EZG reviews this.

Interesting...
After reading about how much Rob likes Osirion in The Half-Dead City foreword, it makes sense that he's writing this.

EDIT: By the way, is that the final cover? Who are those two characters that are charging the mummy?

Taldor

Okay, I think I know what I'm going to do. Thanks guys.

My vote on the Summon Monster vs. Summon Nature's Ally selection would be to produce a second, complete set for Summon Nature's Ally. When you organize the files, make sure to put the ones that appear on both lists on separate pages (probably at the back?) from the ones that appear only on one list or the other. That way, anyone who is only interested in one list would be able to buy it with a minimum of confusion, and people who buy both will only have to print out one set of the duplicates.

Just out of curiosity, would people prefer a complete set? Even if it used many of the same minis from the Summon Monster set?

The 'aligned critter' list might also work well as supplements. It would allow you to spread the stress of drawing so many creatures out over multiple products, and allows people to buy just the critters they're interested in (A player probably just wants one alignment, for instance, and a GM has more use for Fiendish than Celestial.)

That's an interesting idea although I'm not sure if people would pay more for a subset of Fiendish or Celestial if they could, as Dudemeister said, just draw on their own horns, halos, etc.

These look good; your art has improved a lot with practice, since I last saw it.

Another way to base is to push flats into a scored piece of foamcore of the right base size.
That way they can be taken apart at the end of the session, and stored flat in less space.

Thanks Snorter! I've had a decent amount of practice doing these over the years.

The foamcore would work well for the larger pieces. I never thought of that.

I like Sanwah68's idea: Copy all the SNA monsters out of this product, make new art for the SNA creatures that aren't on the SM spell list. Slap it all together, spank it on the bottom and sell it to me for another $10. I'll pay it, and be thankful for it!

I suppose they could even sell two different products:

1: Summon Nature's Ally - containing all of the Summon Nature's Ally monsters (as stated above)

2: Summon Nature's Ally supplement to Summon Monster - containing only the Animals that are not common to both spell sets. The idea is that if you have already bought THIS product, you can buy a lower priced SNA Supplement to get to you to the full complement of SNA creatures.

I suppose you could also sell a Third Product:

3: Summon Monster Supplement - containing only the Summon Monster creatures that are not also on the SNA list. Buy the Summon Monster Supplement if you already bought the full Summon Nature's Ally set, but now need the rest of the creatures for your Summon Monster Spell.

Hmmm... now I have too many options to choose from... ;) Good ideas!

This is the first paper minis set I've downloaded, and I'm not sure how the gargantuan ones are supposed to be put together. Can anyone describe it, or at least link me to some pictures of what they're supposed to look like when assembled?

The link that Itchy posted should help although I don't remember it addressing Gargantuan minis specifically. Each mini takes up a full page so after printing them out, just glue the backs together. They should line up perfectly so then it just a matter of cutting out whatever amount of white space you don't want. The black bar beneath the mini's feet can fold so that you can either glue that to the base OR cut the base in half and glue it on top of the black bar.

I hope that made sense...

Also, Callous Jack, I'm early in Skull and Shackles and your paper minis are doing a great job at filling in the many blanks left by the Wizkids minis. The players and I love them.

Hey thanks, drumlord! I'm glad to hear the paper minis are working out for you. I'm always interested in any battlemap pics if you have them! :)

Callous Jack do you have a Deviantart site?

Guess that with some examples like many other artists have could be a good "preview".

Hi Hayato Ken, I do have an old account that I haven't used in years. I avoid posting paper minis there so I don't have to worry about the artwork being saved and passed around. That's why I tried to cram as many on the cover as I could so folks can get an idea of what's inside.

drumlord wrote:
I like that there are multiples of many of the creatures as it will surely help out those folks that need to summon several critters at once. That said, for the most part I will only ever need one or two of each of these. Could we add pages at the end for the smaller ones that just has one of each for people like me so we don't have to waste lots of pages and ink to get one of each?

Hi drumlord,

If enough people were interested in that, I could see adding that on. :)

Hola Callous Jack!

What happened to the creative Callous Jack that made different poses for the minis that had multiples??? I've seen you do great work with that in other sets but was saddened when I did not see them with this set... I would have gladly paid more and waited longer for that. Where have you taken Callous Jack and what ransom are you demanding for his return!!!

Hola Ezaviel_Malakai,

I'm sorry to hear you are not happy with the paper minis. Normally I do like to do what you mentioned but this set was very difficult. It contains somewhere around 110 unique minis. So doubling or tripling that would have been an almost impossible task to accomplish as it already took about 5-6 months to finish. :)

Thanks Liz for the quick update. Sorry guys, I must have accidentally deleted the page with the two missing minis.

If people want to see Summon Nature's Ally as the next set, please let me know.

And a big thanks to 1970Zombie for the review.

Belkzen Stirs - AP around Last Wall & the orcs. A shadowy figure has arisen and begun to gather the orcs into a unified force again. Though slain, he continues to return. The mystery to his identity and power can only be found by returning to the Darklands below, where the orcs originated from to rediscover some of the ancient history of the dwarves & orcs of Golarion and the driving forces behind the Quest for the Sky. Because orcs are sadly lacking in APs.

I like that! Great idea!

The Prowler is dead? Aw, that bums me out, I loved the Prowler when I was kid. Hell, I bought his limited series. I think a good writer(and artist) could do a lot with him and Rocket Racer. Luke Cage was a B-grade hero before Bendis came along. I'd love to see them at least take some sort of Stark/Pym/Richards tech role for one of the big teams.

I like Battlestar, I have some Avengers Spotlight comics from the '80s where he fought Dr. Karl Malus, the Power Tools and the Powerbroker. I dug that storyline. So what do you think of Patriot?

I thought of some other heroes:

Black:
Brother Voodoo, Black Goliath, Rage, Debrii and Aegis from New Warriors, Bridge from Six Pack and I'm surprised no one including me thought of Night Thrasher or Blade.

Latino:
Silverclaw, Skin, Echo

That's it for me, I stopped collecting comics by the early 00's. I'm not in the loop anymore with who has died or not. I imagine there's some more in the Avengers Initiative or the Xavier Institute books.

EDIT: What about Deathlok or Cardiac? I can't remember...

2. quick, name 5 black Marvel super heroes. And five Latino ones. No crossing ultimate/313 lines.

Here's some ones that I always liked (well, maybe not Triathlon).

Black:
Prowler, Rocket Racer, Battlestar, Monica Rambeau and 3D-Man(Triathlon)

Latino:
Sunspot, Firebird, Feral, Thorn, Rictor, Living Lightning

There was a mutant latina doctor that came out around the same times as Maggot in X-Men. (Reyes?) I think she had a forcefield.

OK, let's try the others :

The "on", "ain" and "in" sounds have no obvious equivalent in english, sorry...

Thanks Smarnil le couard! Some of my guesses were correct but I was off on a couple like Rouergue.

I studied the later Plantagenets at Uni... I fully recommend the Paston letters as an example of how a medieval estate was run.

The Paston Letters are a collection of letters and papers consisting of the correspondence of members of the Paston family of Norfolk gentry, and others connected with them in England, between the years 1422 and 1509. The collection also includes some state papers and other important documents.

What is also important is a lot of it is written by the female Pastons detailing just how much say and power they did and didn't have in running the family.

I actually just finished a book on the Paston Letters. Fascinating stuff especially the lengths to which they had to go through to keep some of their legally bought land!

-Angoumois
-Rouergue
-Saintongue
-Limoges

Hi Chance Wade,
RuyanVe has it right. There are six sets, a bestiary and the Sandpoint villager set and they should cover everything you need in the anniversary edition update.

(Thanks RuyanVe!)

Except I think those were supposed to be different types of movie.

I wouldn't describe either "the drama is intense" or "it's a really involving mystery" as a "popcorn movie".

I think the term is loosely used. For some, popcorn movies mean a 'meh' movie that is just something to go watch for the hell of it. For others, they are just fun FX summer blockbusters. My wife's idea of a popcorn movie would be the horror stuff she loves, an old friend of mine would choose westerns, mine kind of go all over the place but lean toward the blockbusters. I certainly think a popcorn movie could cover some or all of those categories mentioned though.

I Red Box'd it last night, and watched it with my sons and my gaming group. Lots of "oooohs", "awesomes", and belly laughs all around.

It's a great popcorn flick. Lots of cool action and special effects. Is it full of profoundly philosophical dialogue, or Oscar-worthy performances? Nope. But, I never expected it to be, either.

To echo what Hama said above, it met all of my expectations superbly.

Yeah, my thoughts too. I saw it through netflix and it was a great popcorn movie.

BETRAYAL AT ANTARA used the KRONDOR engine but it wasn't set in Midkemia. I think the developers lost the RIFTWAR licence and had to use their own, generic world. RETURN TO KRONDOR, which was quite a few years later and using a different engine, was okay as well, IIRC.

The book quality depends on where you go after the first three (MAGICIAN, SILVERTHORN and A DARKNESS AT SETHANON). If you go for Feist's fourth book, PRINCE OF THE BLOOD, the quality does dip quite noticeably. Feist released a new edition of it a few years later which is apparently a fair bit better. THE KING'S BUCCANEER is okay and then Feist really gets his mojo back with the first three SERPENTWAR books (SHADOW OF A DARK QUEEN, RISE OF A MERCHANT PRINCE and RAGE OF A DEMON KING) which are great. Then he completely loses the plot and pretty much everything after KING is awful or just extremely dull.

The other option is to read the EMPIRE TRILOGY after SETHANON (DAUGHTER OF THE EMPIRE, SERVANT OF THE EMPIRE, MISTRESS OF THE EMPIRE), co-written with Janny Wurts. This is an excellent trilogy, arguably the best thing Feist's been involved with. It's set on Kelewan and gives the Tsurani perspective on the Riftwar. There's also HONOURED ENEMY, the book 'co-written' by Feist with William Forstchen (I get the impression Forstchen wrote 90% of it) which is absolutely superb.

I'd say that most of the stuff after DEMON KING is definitely not worth bothering with.

I pretty much agree with most of this although personally King's Buccaneer was a fantastic book. There were some okay gems throughout the rest of the series like the Talon book but the character cloning (Jimmy the Hand's family), constant shifting of who/what the big bad guy was and a move into the Conclave stuff and away from Kingdom stuff hurt the series for me.
