You can fire a crossbow as many times in a full attack action as you could attack if you were using a bow.

Steve, I would suggest Locktite Gel consistencey super glue It has the hold of super glue, but is a gel form instead of liquid, so 1) it is easier to place where you want it and 2) it is easier to see where it is to wipe off any excess
in the Osirion AP, Wes is writing an entire 5 or 6 page article about the afterlife, IIRC from the Gencon panels.. best bet is o wait for that
Just getting it out there for people... I definately like this chapter too by the way.... As a fencer it is really nice to see a well written fencing bout
Prestige classes have prestige in the world. They should be tied to the world. That is the philosophy of prestige classes at paizo. The Archetypes do the same job as the 3.5 prestige classes in a far better way.
When prepping, use highlighters.... here's what I Do:
Blue: environmental hazards which will effect the fight (fog, darkness, ect)
Underline in pen: Spells or items I need to look up later and print out and then highlight appropriately
There's really nothing pre painted that fits everything your asking for. ... Most pre paints are 28 mm minis.. Look for some 20mm minis a full size 20mm would be a tall gnome
City of the fallen sky does this very well

Nope, its realistic, kinda like how this thread was asking for the breastplate to be more realistic. Most rangers/guides would also be making things out of the berries and roots they found in the wilderness while wandering/hunting. If you got poisioned by a bite, you better have a poultice made and ready to absorb the venom.... things like that

The question is more what was promised. If you are still waiting for things to ship, then they did not not promise a shipping date for you. They promised that pledges that included only a vampire level pledge should be shipping at X time in the pledge levels at kickstarter. technically, they never in the entire 53,000 comments said that vampire+addons would have the same estimated shipping as vampire alone. And I'm pretty sure when the first new add-on was announced, they told us that adding add-ons could delay shipping (either in the update or the comments of the update)
I think that if you read the terms of service for kickstarter, technically, your pledge is not for the product, it is for the goal, and the company has chosen to give X product free to those you contribute $Y. It might even say that the rewards are considered free marketing materials and not purchases(that way they don't have to charge taxes, and can charge your credit card more than 90 days before shipping the marketing material, as you are not buying the product, and the shipping time requirement of credit card agreements for retailers do not apply). But I'm not sure on that point.
Like kickstarter said, its not a store, the two best things I can think of to liken it to is;
I still shake my head - I never saw any delivery estimates on add-ons during the kickstarter, only once the first shipment had come in.. and THAT is what is holding everything up (unless you're in Canada). Yes, Vampire pledges shipped out a few weeks later, but those with just vampire pledges and nothing else have their pledges.
Vampire Level + add-ons was not something with a delivery estimate on the front page of the kickstarter. so they are right on time.... That's just my view

The Con actually didn't hurt them that much, people were able to pick up their vampire pledges, paint sets and figure cases at the con, meaning a lot less orders that needed to be shipped in total.
Also, the original plan was that they would be complete before the con, but the Vampire pledges were held up in customs for 2-4 weeks. last we heard they were fulfilling faster than they anticipated.
By the time the kickstarter was started, the con already had people committed to being there (both attendees and sculptors/painters). These people had paid hundreds of dollars for plane tickets and hotels on top of the con price, and said plane tickets may not be refundable. By the time they knew customs were holding up the largest part of the vast number of pledges, many of those attendees would not have been able to reschedule time off. Are you saying that they should have been out of $hundreds of dollars each because of customs, when the solution they chose doesn't cost anyone anything, except for reaper to get off-site storage while the con went on? They chose to save many customers money, and you're yelling at them for it.
Alright Mattastrophic, I'll bite:
From the wiki article on Taldor: GovernmentTaldor is ruled by the grand prince, a hereditary title. The current Grand Prince Stavian III has only one heir, his daughter, Princess Eutropia. Taldor has a decadent noble class, bloated with titles and obsessed with the arcane arts. Taldor’s bureaucracy is headed by the senatorial class. Much of the government management is left in the hands of the senatorial class, who constantly argue over jurisdiction.
The crown seeks its personal protection from beyond Taldor's political ties and mixed loyalties. The Grand Prince is zealously served by the Ulfen Guard, who care only for their oath and duty to the crown, without any concern for the empire's political climate.
Senator Karthis is the leader of the opposition party in Oppara, supporting the declaration of war against Qadira.
All from Taldor Echos of Glory
In order to further strengthen his empire and to gain loyal supporters, Stavian III also created an incentive program which promised formal titles to anyone willing to claim lands from rogue lords. This ensured that lords regarded as 'unworthy' of their position by the crown could be forcibly removed and replaced by individuals loyal to the Grand Prince.

-Religion. I know that Aroden used to be really big in Taldor, but I know nothing of the religion of the Empire, other than that there's an illegal cult of Sarenrae.
My guess is that Taldor was once such a large empire that many religions were brought into the fold from the expansion. You would have to look at individual towns as a seaside town is more likely to worship the duel deity, while more backwater town would have shrines to other gods.
Religions that have been confirmed to have shrines in Taldor:
-Culture. What do Taldans, rich and poor, enjoy doing? What do they like to eat? What does a Taldan aspire to when he grows up? Do Taldans follow the dogma of a particular religion? Do they define their world by what is told to them or through logic?
Taldor Echos of Glory has two pages on this (11 and 12 paraphrased in the socety section of the taldor wiki article I liked to above). They have even written "Taldorians are decadent bon vivants, favoring rich foods, ornate attire, and jeweled accoutrements for even the most minor of casual affairs. To a Taldorian, appearance is an expression of power, and a keen sense of fashion represents a keen mind. Their appreciation for the arts extends beyond fashion and painting, dabbling in sorcery, dueling, and the murky strategies of politics and war."
-The royalty. I know that Taldor has a Grand Prince who has only one daughter. Is he married? If so, what's his wife's name? Why has he not produced an heir? What would happen if Stavian III were to die? Who would the throne pass to?
It has also been said that he likes to dally in frivolous activities, so not out of the question that his daughter might be born out of wedlock. At least we have a picture of Grand Prince Stavian III...
-The nobility. Who are the prominent families? Which lands do they govern? What are Taldor's noble titles, and how do they rank? What are some of their heraldry?
Taldor's royal class is comprised of dynasty-inheriting houses, most of which trace their lineages back to one emperor or another. Its members hold byzantine titles, such as patrician, magister, proconsoul, mandator, exarch, viceroy, duke, and others. A large number of scholars in the Primogen Library keep and update the genealogical records, as each title has a subtle place in the hierarchy of the empire.
Status for both royalty and senate is distinguished by their lavish beards, which by law only they can legally grow (leading to them being called the "bearded"). Greater, more extravagant beards are a sign of a higher status
both from Taldor Echos of glory page 11 and 12
-The merchant and peasant classes. How does Taldor acquire wealth? What are the surplus-producing crops? What about crafted goods?
The massive underclass of "the unbearded" make up 99% of Taldor's population. They are merchants, craftsmen, day laborers, dock workers, vagabonds, soldiers, sailors, and so on. Taldor's crushing taxes and the policies of the ruling class regarding the rights of citizens keep the unbearded in poverty. Careful advances of key citizens from the ranks of unbearded keep their compatriots ever hopeful that after hard work and long loyalty, they might join the ranks of the bearded. Taldor's military usually offers such a way of advancement, and because of that the Taldan Horse, Phalanx, and Imperial Navy are loyal and strong.
Again from the wiki article I linked to, which lists Taldor Echeos of Glory P 11-12 as its source.
While this doesn't include crops or inports/exports
Yeah, Sutter has said as fiction editor he doesn't have time to go through a slush pile. If you want to write, its best to get published writing non-golarion things, and then send him an email saying you would like a chance to write a piece and use your published pieces as your portfolio. He discusses this in his appearances on both Know Direction and Chronicles:Pathfinder Podcast podcasts.
In the general discussion are I asked a question as to why Bard Archivist get Trap finding, but not Disable Device as a class ability. Everyone seemed to agree that this made no sense whatsoever. How do i get an official ruling on this.
Shrug... Indiana Jones didn't disable many of the traps, he just went around them after finding them. I don't see a problem with it... his one attempt to disabel one caused him to run from a big boulder
Another complaint that I've seen here is that Amex "forces" you to credit back the customer in a dispute (aka charge-back). Nothing could be further from the truth. Many times, it's simply because the merchant doesn't clearly spell their refund/return policies. Think about it from a legal perspective, most businesses have policies/signed waivers etc in place to make sure they don't get sued in court. Same concept here.
As the one who brought this up before, I figured I should tell why I brought that up. I worked at a hotel, and multiple times AmEx threatened our hotel that they would terminate thier agreement with us because a cardholder said that they had not stayed with us, We had a scan, meaning that the customer was in front of us and handed us the card. We also had an imprint of the card, proving that they were in front of us, and had handed us the card. We sent Amex copies of these, the signed registration card, and the video of the person signing said piece of paper and handing us the card. Amex said "yes that's them, refund them or you can't accept Amex anymore".
Also 70 cents times 100,000 books is $7000.00 - thats prolly the cost of another piece of art. (Note I do not know what paizo pays for art)
What I would "really" like to see is a globe. Even one of those inflatable beach ball printed things.
I've been fighting fro that since the original gazetteer came out
I do think that fleshing out some of the many books, scrolls, plays, poems, and songs mentioned in the APs would be a good thing. Then it could be like skyrim where you actually pick up books in world and can ream them...

So if you feel "Walmart" would make it to "common" for you, then instead make it to where your magic type shops are more like a "Bergdorf's" or a "Neiman Marcus". That way it truly wouldn't be available for every lowly peasant.
To do the math Cost of living says an average income is 10gp a month. The US national median is 3700 a month. So if 10GP = $3,700 then a masterwork at 306GP is the equivilent of $113,500 so a 2013 Aston Martin or a 2012 Maserati GranTurismo. A +1 weapon is the equivalent of $853,220 or a Batman #1 CGC graded 9.2 or This car, or a small mansion. a +2 weapon would be over $3 million, the cost to build a Bradley tank.

Lol, maybe "getting to be as bad as Ultimate Wolverine Vs Hulk #3 (for anyone who doesn't know, it was originally solicited for April 19, 2006, finally released on March 4, 2009) " is a better term... since the lower priority comic was pushed back supposedly because the writer was helping write some of the later seasons of Lost.
On the left hand side links there is one marked Community Use Policy. That has all of the dos and don'ts... you can make your own maps or art based off of the IP. And I will be the first to say that the wiki would LOVE to host and/or be able to use said images, if you are so inclined.
edit: we also surpassed 7,000 pages last week Yay
We're working on getting the wiki back up.... once it is, there is a category:Adventures set in Absalom I will link it as soon as we come back up

This is not a criticizm of the book - its one I was able to read in one sitting cover to cover and one of my favorites, but:
GtDMV had multiple bios with hanging sentences (P 41 Karlae Siegfrost is one that comes to mind). It was also plagued by 'early product syndrome' where it was written before some of the feeling of the world was set in stone, so there are a few inconsistencies with the final version of things as presented in the campaign setting and inner sea world guide. Also had a number of map inconsistencies.
I think these are the things GeraintElberion was trying to talk about, but the phrasing could have been better.
I'm a kickstarter backer and have a notice now this product is in my downloads but unavailable to actually download? I emailed customer service, but just wondering if anyone else is having this problem?
Its happening to everyone... I'm guessing the file isn't uploaded to the server yet
Hey Jim, Thanks! My initial reason for asking is to make sure we use the same stats (instead of people running it cold having to convert on the fly and people who do the extra prep using the full template). I've seen a bunch of times where its come up either for someone running cold, or that they thought they would be running the low tier, and end up running the high tier, so need to use the simple conversions... most of the time they have at least internet connection on their phones, so are able to check the boards for stats.
