D&D minis if you can find them in your price range
Note: Singles for all of those ARE available in the paizo store on this site
I would also recommended Blood of the city by Robin D laws (especially if you are going to start RotRL soon) and Pirate's Honor by Chris Jackson (especially if you are starting/playing Skull and Shackles AP). I have not finiashed Pirate's Honor yet, but it is already in my top 4 books in the series and Blood of the city fights with Death's Heretic for the #1 spot on that list.
If you would like a primer to any of the books, most of the authors have also written a short serial story to go with the novel. These are up for free on this site and new stories sections are added every Wednesday. Note, because new sections are added every Wednesday, not all of the authors that have short stories on that page have novels.

I had always wondered why some Chronicle Sheets have +2 Studded Leather on them for tier 7-8 and 10-11 scenarios. Shouldn't the players already have enough fame to purchase the listed item. Items made from special materials or unique items I understand could be on those Chronicle sheets, but not upgrade basic gear.
Everything that a player encounters in a scenario that is not on the always available list is put onto the chronicle... I had seen players in season 2 with less fame than their level (a level 8 or 9 barbarian with 5 fame)
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
that only means you hav t gotten enough people to buy it to seel outo f the first printing... remember, they only do errata when they print the next printing of the book... its all in the consumer's hands
They're whole business model is built off subscriptions. So even when there are sales, they do not make them lower than the subscription price. The bundle sales are usually the print versions for the PDF price, but I have never seen the pdfs on sale. There are ways to get discounts:
There are scenarios that have time limits. I can think of 3 or 4 that you need to rush to complete X within Y time, where Y can be anything between 10 minutes and 12 hours. In these scenarios the hour could be a sticking point. Just like a paladin's code can create an issue in some scenarios, or having a wolf animal companion might cause issues in others. You also may need to roleplay out deals with Paladins or clerics of Pharasma (as the goddess of death, she considers undead as attacks on her sovereign realm) agreeing to destroy them when you are done.
I could be wrong but I think that section missions I'm so sorry I might not go away totally just the written in hand outs. so see the main mission is to collect a sarchophogus so they can interpret the hieroglyphics. there will still be your yearly faction goal is to save someone from a certain disease... during the mission, you may find out the pharoah who's body is in the sarchophogus recovered from the same desease in ancient times. As a forward thinking member of your faction, you might want to take the body or ensure it is transported to absalom even if the society mission specificly says they don't need it so that your factions healers can figure out how the pharoah survived. The percentage of people who did this may help decide if the person you are supposed to save lives or dies in cannon.
Again, that's just what I got from the podcast, and I might be wrong..
The images are layered..if you use the extraction program in my profile you can get the naked map without room numbers or secret entrances..... vic has said that they need to turn the security features on for certain anti piracy things to work, and to turn on some in adobe you need to turn on all...but that is a detailed an answer as I think you are going to get
Also, if they expanded the offer, they would run into more resistance from brick and motor stores.. But do you realize that the AP is a lot more than just adventure... That's only half, the other half is comparable to the campaign setting line, and with the discouns, you d only be paying like eleven bucks more a month (8 on months that hard cover books come out)?
But it also continues the "Tony Stark is Iron Man, Wait Tony Stark's not Iron Man, they're in the same place at the same time" Which you often find in the comics.
Killian did a big monologue about how he likes to work in the background. Mandarin could have hired the actor to allow him to act in the background while collecting his rings or something. Also there were a ton of heat signatures on Tony's map... could some have been Mandarin using the rings, using the soldiers explosions as a screen to hide the other heat spikes.

How? all of the bones stock needed to be moved out of the warehouse so they could set up the Con (the con is held on the only floorspace they have, which os the same as they had for shipping) they had to move all of the bones to a storage locker during this time, blocks away from the any computer to be able to scan barcodes or look up what someone ordered, and blocks away from the shipping containers to be able to ship them.
Bill Kirsch wrote:
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.
I would recommend reading Death's Heretic
To clarify this post from last night, the main character's job is to find out what is happening when a soul doesn't go where it should upon death. They track the first few steps of this path, and talk pretty extensively about the others throughout the book. And its a great read
Nope, By RAW they do not. You would need feats/abilities/other items that allow the extension of the SA range
Edit: grick is correct I missed that first sentence of the regular goggles: "The wearer of these goggles can make ranged sneak attacks from any distance instead of the normal 30 feet. "
Well, on some forums its the standard and loads of people do it, on others its seen as rude (or well not rude exactly, dont know rthe word in english, but like... Bragging, in an obviously stupid way? Maybe being full of oneself? English isnt my main language ). Since noone seems to do it around here ive assumed this to be the general attitude here but well that was just a sidenote and not meant to threadjack.
The message boards are like 8 years old, the ability to favorite posts has only been around for maybe 2 years. So many of the "old timers" don't do it out of habit. FAQ flagging your post before anyone else wieghs in, especially if it is a ruling the community thinks is clear cut can be looked down on, but favoriting is never too bad
DC- if you go to your account page and click on "my posts", the search bar in the upper right changes to the ability to search posts made by you, if you loose track of a thread that is the best way to find it again
As an idea its fun, but its something thats hard to do in organized play. Being pulled aside means it would be in addition to the faction missions? How would you pick people to be pulled aside? In a home game you can pull aside one character, but in a game where no one knows each other, how will the GM pick without someone complaining that their character wasn't picked? Especially if other characters are picked in multiple times in the course of a Con. And it would also force character inspections, as the GM would have to make sure they were not choosing a character who had already been chosen previously. Since in season 5 higher level scenarios are supposedly going to be written to run the full 5 hours per the podcast.. not sure if there is room for the character audit as well
Haven't gotten mine yet...but I don;t know if it's even been shipped yet or not. I'm assuming I'll get an e-mail when it ships.
So this is what we know:
1) they ship out of texas
2)they were ready to start shipping in march, but the shipment from china with the vampire pledges in it was held up in customs for three weeks
3) they plan to be done shipping before origins
4)(this one was secondhand) they were 2 days ahead of where they thought they would be when they wrapped up for reapercon
5) a bunch of people picked up their vampire pledges at reapercon
6) they are shipping UPS, so you should get and automated email from UPS when they ship.
7) people with any combination of vampire, paint sets and carry cases have been shipped. There have yet to be reports of any shipments with add on minis shipping

If you right click the button and click open in a new tab or open in a new window, you can edit
This works now

The best way I've seen is to purchase the minis yourself, paint them, then sell them on ebay. Wargamers will apparently pay top dollar for well painted minis for their armies.
While this is great to get your foot in the door, once your name is out there, contract work where they send you the mini(s), and expect it/them in the mail by a certain date pay more because 1) it creates a built in audience 2) you don't get to paint what you choose (both sculpts and color schemes) 3)the person gets to feel important in the process by picking colors and will therefore pay more
The absolute best way? Go to your FLGS and ask if you could display some of your work with business cards people can take. Also selling some examples of your work on ebay with one of these business cards put into the package helps too. I would put the pictures in a more public photosite than facebook, and have a link on the business card... once your name is out there people will send you armies to paint.

Note: I started a second one sorted by scenario... everything in the first list is currently in the second, I will work on the scenarios that have been released since then tonight. There are also a few in the link Eric Clingenpeel provided that I didn't have listed, I'm not sure if I missed them, but I'll confirm them.
This one is also hyperlinked to the map product, so you don't need to search for it.
If you do staples, its like 8cents per color page, and 4 8x11s per map IIRC

Didn't that happen in the rise of the drow Gencon event (the first paizo interactive in 2008) where a new player gained the ability to summon an Abolith and summoned it 20 feet above his enemy?
They are most likely the most exhaustive list out there. a few may have been missed, they have been updated as the chroniclers come across them in books. From what I see, any languages from Distant Worlds might not be there, but I'm not sure if any were introduced (personally haven't gotten to it in my reading). If you DO find some, feel free to update the appropriate page
First steps has been out for almost two years. If I remember correctly, they gauge print runs on what they think will sell out within 2 years for financial reasons (you can search for Vic's why we don't reprint thread for more information on this). Also, anything that is 'out of print' can still be bought as a PDF and printed out when needed. This might be a better option for many, as you can print the panels/side that you need when you need it. This option is also cheaper for those on a budget. When these scenarios came out 2 years ago, many of these maps were new and there was plenty of stock.
Why are so many sold out? Well... it could be because they underestimated the buying power including a map in PFS scenarios has for the product. Late season 2 early season 3 (when these came out) were when they really started including maps on a regular basis in PFS scenarios.
I think there has been a push lately to include monsters available in either pawn or pathfinder battles minis form.
All are nice pieces, I'm just not sure about the rarities. Guess I am just inclined to think more along the lines of a low level campaign as compared to a higher level campaign.
The lesser version of the host devil is only CR3 (small instead of medium, but on paper they both takes a square)
