I can fully understand slowing it down, after all if the previews finish too far before the sets release it takes some of the shine off. I agree with others it can easily be stretched out with pics of production minis - in fact I'd rather they were here than find them on eBay or other sites where they're so closely shot it detracts from the quality. I'd love more stories behind why minis are chosen or their design as well but this is a lot of work for Erik.

At the moment though I'd wouldn't object to a heads up with what's happening with the editors Friday blog, I actually (and sadly?) really look forward to my Friday/Saturday fix of minis and collectable goodness.

Why is that? What makes them look non-hob? Is it the coloration?

Shadow Lodge

Some of the less common races especially ratfolk, elemental kin, wayang
Spriggan; large and small.
Shadow giant using ISB art (hmmm I said that a few times now I think)
Ash giant,
A second Marsh giant using the art from the Giantslayer AP.
Dimensional shambler,
Sprite or similar small winged fey.
Duergar - themed like the hobs or bugbears
Troglodytes - again themed
Kytons - could also be themed with the 4 various sizes types.

As others have said its these themed subsets that work so well, especially these hobgoblins.

Technically I'd also like to see some of the themed minus fleshed out even more. Another ogre or two the same size as the kreegs, another Orc or two, another bugbear or two that scale in with the lurker.

It would be nice to see an additional sea devil or two in scale with either the base one or the four armed one, probably the basic, quite large seas devil from Skull and Shackles.

Even 1-2 more fire, hill and frost Giants to give a bit more table variety, and uniformity - I like the frost goants we have but they vary a little too much in look to really work well together, same with the fire giant King (although when I repainted his Armor gold he was a better fit)

Nice looking hobgoblins there! All common so easy to get an instant horde. Hats off to you Erik. The November shift is fine by me, makes the set feel like a birthday present, although I doubt it will reach me by the 17th ☹️. If we get another hobgoblin I hope its the samurai looking warlord from the monster codex, that a very nice piece of art. Very excited for this set, spoilers for the rest can't come far enough...

I really want a rat folk, I repainted a kobold devilspeaker to do the job but I'd much rather a genuine small rat folk. Besides there is some awesome art for them out there. I'd also sevind a grippli!

And schnappy that's what I was saying before! The post on the Ray is really appropriate, it just works on the mini. Mind you I don't mind them anyway much for variety available in the pose.

The edit was to remove some of MY crankiness nothing to do with your post, poorly worded and placed, so sorry about that.

I also get the point but when you are old you'll be in the same position and the ratio of old to young will be even more disproportionate, but I assume you'll still want to be looked after while those younger than you will be complaining about supporting you, probably for the reason you stated. It's only going to be harder for the generation below yours. And sadly the bit about the elderly being ignored is all too true. Your focussing in on a small proportion of well to do people. Many, many elderly live from pension to pension with just enough to pay the bills and prescriptions, let alone eat.

You also missed the point about the stats. Those same stats could just as easily lay blame at the foot of the ill educated, those who admit to being British, and the middle to lower classes.

I think it's sad that many of the pro-leave are already regretting their vote. In fact quite a few younger people who voted to leave have since been interviewed by various agencies and even stated they voted to leave because they thought their vote wouldn't matter.

I feel sorry for the many, many Brits who have been threatened by this. Such a foolish thing to do. Imagine what will happen if Scotland and Ireland leave the uk and remain in the EU.

It's far from ridiculous. We have an ageing population in the UK which consumes a lot of tax revenue to run, what with pensions and the NHS, and they are the largest consumers by far of the welfare state. The young are expected to pay for this, so we are clearly pivotal to the standards of living of the elderly.

Edit: to remove some of the crankiness.

Now I may be tired from working all day but it's a good thing you have no intention of aging, let me know the secret. Or if you do I'm glad to see you'll support yourself and not make any demands on the tax system or NHS.

This sort of thinking is remarkable in this day and age. We see the same in Australia. The elderly get cast aside, monetary benefits reduced, calls for rights to be reduced. All as a penalty for having the audacity to get old. We fight for equal rights for every tiny group we can think of except the elderly it appears. YOur society has the infrastructure, democracy and freedom it enjoys because of the elderly. Most of them have paid taxes throughout their life, just as pivotal to the standard of living many younger people enjoy. You don't see a lot of elderly adding to crime statistics - a huge cost to society.

The same stats on the Brecht also point out that higher educated people voted to stay, so perhaps we should only allow the highly educated to vote? In fact people identifying as British voted to leave! Maybe only those who are foreign should be allowed to vote? The polls also say the lower classes voted to go, why not restrict the ability to vote to the upper classes?

The larges have a much thicker post and they're secured to the base better now. The one on the dire bat from rusty dragon (I think) has had no 'breakage' issues, and I can't say I've been particularly delicate in handling them.

Well this set continues with a 100% strike rate for me. I have waited for a giant crab for a very long time, and here he is; and a common! Looks like he will be a very nice mini indeed. Now I just need the large version, hint :)

That ray is a piece of art. Beautifully(?) realized figure, great colour scheme, excellent sculpt, fantastic rarity. Win! Again as always I hope they translate from digital, but if the last set is anything to go by Deadly Foes will be a huge success.

Hope your feeling better soon Erik and thanks for taking the time to do a blog this week.

Definitely a huge on a huge base. If you scale him up to 5.5" the base is definitely a 3". Excellent news for huge minis, but I'm a little sad that wiz kids have been unable to do it for the pathfinder line. This means the d&d line has managed huge minis in boosters without a marked increase in price, well assuming the info in circulation is correct anyway. Huge step forward for them. Here's hoping it works and the paint details are good. Then we may well see more of the huge minis, and who knows, for the first time Paizo may follow what wotc/habro has done :(

And Marco sadly Chief Guh is the incentive and it will be the first I have absolutely no intention of buying, it's truly horrible.

I cannot express in words how happy I am to see that bearded devil. Impressive. And it's an uncommon, so 4-5 in a case!

Like all of the other dungeon dressing in the set, this guy comes one per case.
That's disappointing. The dungeon dressings are hugely popular and I believe sold our at Paizo in days (if not hours). I sure hope you reconsider the availability of these minis.

Got to agree with you Cleanthes. At one per case multiples will be extremely hard to get hold of on the singles market, especially at any reasonable price. Its probably fine for the book and lecturn, one is enough to get by (except for the obsessive like me who need two of most things - I'm fighting it though)

All four reveals once again reinforce my love for this set. The book is an awesome dressing piece, extermely cool and doubles as a reminder of one of my favourite shows (heads up evil dead! The old one and the new series not the remake, blah).

The Decimvirate leader is an amazing design. Rare, so I'll have to hunt down another one or two, but it works on so many levels. I personally can see him doubling as my evil cultist/cult leader.

The Pit Fiend is magnificent, the sculpt is incredibly dynamic and the colours really make him shine. He is going to be another of the "very large" large miniatures judging from that render.

As for the Salamander. I like the pose, I love the detail in the render (which I hope translates into the final mini) but I'm not loving the overly simple colour scheme or the knife blade end to the tail. Couldn't you inject some orange or yellow into the figure? I know he's a common but the monochrome red just lets down what is a great mini (at an amazing rarity).

DF is looking good with some of the best commons to date, I hope the final sculpt and paint does the renders justice. Hats off to you Erik this is a great set.

Since it's a completely new game I hope it's separate from golarionand pathfinder in terms of fluff. Sure use similar races but take all the pathfinder fluff out, I like the idea of two, separate, fully supported games ftom a great game company. I also don't want competition between them, I'd be upset if, for example, we got 1 AP for each a year.

That said I wonder if we'll get some miniatures support for this line.

Wow, I was overjoyed last week when you revealed the celestial presence, now...well what can I say. Shaping up to be a 100% must have set for me. My bank account gently weeps.

I am a huge fan of the lemure form the old WotC set from waaaay back, however this one: Best...lemure...ever! That is one truly creepy hombre, and you know this will translate from render to plastic extremely well. I love the way the little white eyes almosy hover in those sockets. To tell the truth he looks like a little version of Oogie-Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas, and I love it. Since it s common I know I can get 4-5 from a case, a few more on the singles market and BAM, ugly horde time! I hope my players will appreciate this mini as much as I do.

As for the accuser, if it makes the transition form render to plastic and retains that detail I believe I will have a new favourite low level miniature to use. AND IT'S COMMON! To quote Cleveland Brown: "That's Nasty", and I mean that in the best possible way.

With more devils and celestials coming I'm beginning to feel like a kid the night before christmas (Of course its a really long night before October)

Devils are one of those bad guys you can never really have enough of. Even if this set includes a good number of devils I know in my heart I still have room for more, so I hope the ones left out can find a home in a later set. I'm also hoping for more giants (c'mon Shadow giant from ISB) and quite frankly a few more demons (even after WotR).

I know from art reveals in the announcement we will see a Protean (or two?) in this set but, Erik, are we likely to see Daemons any time soon?
How about the much under represented Kytons?
Maybe even a Div?
Can you throw me a Qlippoth?
Lob forth an Aeon?

Excellent. The cleric of Asmodeus is one of those pieces of art from the NPC codex I've been hoping to see in plastic, along side the evil halfing with the top hat and a few others. Since this now makes three thrune/Asmodeus miniatures, all very similar, would it be safe to say one of the focus groups in this set would be these fine fellows? In which case perhaps a fourth Asmodean(?)is coming?

The technic league captain an unexpected surprise. He looks very useful, and the anti technology folks out there could quite readily paint his sword metallic giving them a nice fighter type.

Overall two more solid additions and once again the rarity seems spot on, although I may need to hunt down a second Technic league agent for a sword touch up.

Erik, any chance we may get an insight into the dressing for this one some time very soon? Perhaps a look at the hobgoblins?

Or the devils...

Or the angels...

Err, hang on....

I've looked at Spring heeled style again and I think the wording is very intentional. The base feat gives your other movement options. You can move and gain a +2 bonus to attack (equivalent I suppose to the charge bonus) as well as the capacity to add 4 to your AC when shooting or reloading in a threatened area. The two later feats do not preclude the use of the prerequisite feats, they provide bonuses if using the style, which you can do at the same time as the prerequisites.

Very small creatures can share a square. Up to 4 can occupy the same square. This is tiny or smaller creatures only and makes no mention of squeezing. Squeezing only mentions a larger creature attempting to move PAST a smaller one or an obstacle.

My favourite dog in this reveal is Tiny! We just recently lost both our cats, so I understand the compassion. There is nothing like a pet to bring out the better in you. In the near future we hope to adopt a new family member like your little guy.

As for the minis, the cerebus is impressive. Capturing the gruesome detail at the medium size will be a challenge for the painters though. Glad its an uncommon, that seems spot on for rarity.

The hell hound is awesome. As Berk has stated, so much better than the Nessian we got some time back. Yet another good use of transparent plastic. Now that I see this I kind of wish the shattered star version had employed the same idea - the flaming doberman(?) screams hellhound and looks a lot nicer and fiercer than the solid fire dog. Again rarity is spot on, at least in my mind.

Two extremely nice minis Erik. looking forward to seeing more.

the mouser provides a specific change to the rules that allows a mouser to occupy the space of another creature, provided it is larger. This is all that part of the rule does. You may occupy its space, since penalties or other conditions are not mentioned there are none, for either creature. Why is this rule necessary? You can't move through an enemies space unless you are very small or there's a difference of 3 size categories ( Acrobatics provides an exception to this rule). Only very small creatures can move into and occupy another creatures space - they have a reach of 0 and must occupy another creatures space to attack, conveniently 4 of such creatures can occupy the same square, so they can always attack each other. Squeezing does not apply (if it did then it would seem these creatures impose the squeezing penalties on any creature they attack that is larger than tiny). Tiny creatures have a rule that exempts them from the normal, as does the mouser.

The mousers presence does not affect the larger creatures movement in any way. It ignores the mouser effectively for considerations of movement. Why? There's no mention of any such effect in the ability. If it moves away from the mouser he gets an AOO.

The presence of the mouser does impose a -4 penalties on the larger target in much the same as as many conditions and feats do. It applies under a specific set of circumstances - attacks direct at other creatures, almost like a reverse aid another.

At no time is there a mention of squeezing or changes to the large creatures movement. Squeezing is a non issue in the same way is a non issue for very small creatures. The mouser is using a ability to impose a penalty on a foe.

That's my take anyway.

Kyton, giant mantis, the 3 Devils, hound archons, basidirond or violet fungus, mohr, shocker lizard. Well that's what I'd like anyway.

As an aside I'd actually prefer one or two Kytons other than the standard evangelist.

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

At some point in the future I'm hoping we'll get for a female fire Giant and/or hill giant. Perhaps some more variety in Giants; cave giant, shadow giant (amazing art in ISB)and/or ash giant in the future sets.

I wouldn't object to an Erinyes in this set, grounded without peg, since the art for one is quite good. Of course an ice devil or bone devil would be much better. What's really missing in the outsiders though are psychopomps and Kytons.

It would also be good to get a few more of the NPCs from the codex, there is some tremendous art in there, especially the top hat wearing evil Halfling!

Finally perhaps some of the more esoteric PC style races, elemental kin like ifrit, oread etc. but especially a rat folk, there just isn't a small rat man yet in PPM (I did repaint a kobold devil speaker to represent my rat witch, and while it passes it's not as good as having the actual mini)

Yeah, I've come to the same conclusion regarding VMC witch. Not a great choice. TMy ratfolk witch is definately a debuffer/controller, not a lot of damage dealing in there. I'm still going to go cartomancer, but i'm also contemplating hedge with for the spontaneous healing, it appears like we are not going to have a dedicated healer this time round but rather two part timers (my witch possible included).

Shadow Lodge

I've decided on a rat folk witch (cartomancer)/mesmeriset (cult leader). At level 4 he's witch 3, mesmest 1. I ignored point blank and far shot because you're targeting touch AC, which is generally poor. At level 4 he has slumber and evil eye. Feat wise it's extra hex, elemental spell (so my snowball can be acid, how do I get shocking grasp as a witch?) and accursed hex (because someone always seems to make that save). The rat folk FCB extends one hex to 35', the other 40' (although I'm not certain that's a correct interpretation), next hex will be cackle and then the rat folk FCB goes to that so he can hex and move out to 60' to avoid combat.

Another fix the fighter thread. Fighters are fine. They have full BAB, they have a good fort save, they're simple to play, so make a great introduction to the game for new players or older players that just want a break from the over complex. Also, they don't typically rely on misinterpretation and intentional misrepresentation of rules to pull off dubious combinations as a rule. They can be good close and at range. And in many a campaign that I've run or played, they have contributed and held their own.

With the right archetype they have good will saves as well since you can add bravery to all will saves, not just fear.

Like every class they are a combination of class and equipment. Stop ignoring equipment to confine what they can do.

There biggest flaw is skills, they should have 4+ or 6+ And a wider range of class skills - a house rule we employ.

I play fighters quite often when I want to escape the complexity of the other classes. It's nice to play a character whose role is clearly defined.

If you wanted to improve them give them alternatives to bravery, weapon and armour training.

The biggest issue that magic needs to be reigned in, if magic was toned down, and/or classes maxed out at 6 level casters like the recent hybrids, that would go a long way to equalising the classes. They will never be equal though, and that's fine, it's what makes the classes in pathfinder feel distinct.

Wait for one of the next parts of the current AP, the iconic evil duergar uses an oversized crossbow - although I'm not sure whether there's a different rule for crossbows, it's late here.

You have the skill to wield them as 1 handed weapons. You can wield two 1 handed weapons with 2WF. If you have the master feat you can wield two, albeit at a -4 penalty since you can't wield them as light weapons.

Your three feats, four If you're not a dwarf, get you +1 average damage (over wielding a different 1 handed weapon) and reach, for the penalty of -4 attack. Of course the dorm durgar master feat also has a prerequisite of two weapon fighting.

In a similar vein Titan mauler would let you wield two great swords, albeit at -6 attack for each, provided each is appropriately sized for you. These penalties are reasonably hefty in my mind.

The card casters still count as standard ranged attacks though, not ranged touch. That makes a huge difference on a medium BAB class.

We have women in our current gaming group, and have always had women in our gaming groups. We have never, and would never treat them any differently, why would you? Given, we're all in our 40's and 50's but even in our teens - potentially the worst age for the testosterone laden, we never treated women any differently. We're any one at our table to witness the behaviour mentioned in the article I am 100% certain it would not stand.

Like Geoffrey Pearl above we like to believe people are people, treat them with respect and dignity. People also have choice, possibly too much these days, and sadly some do choose to act like an a*%, ignorant of the fact that others have right to dignity. You probably need to exercise your right to point out that it's unacceptable.
