From my perspective as a guy who put out a bunch of extra content for Kingmaker I'm always excited to see how they've been chopped and changed to fit into other people's campaigns. I'm just excited people use my material at their tables at all.

I'm sure the feeling is 10,000 times more gratifying for a published AP author.

My first attempt at running an AP was Shackled City, Life's Bazaar which I ran in Eberron and things rapidly went off the rails when the PCs left the dungeon to rest up and I had the Hobgoblins come out and track the PCs to their home where they used fire magic (illegal in Cauldron) to try and stop the blighters and the Paladin went to the local constabulary and had the PCs and hobgoblins all arrested at the same time.

I realized that I needed an AP that could be a little bit more adaptable to my group of insane people.

Then I discovered Kingmaker: A SANDBOX, I thought, this would be perfect since a Sandbox doesn't really assume any particular course of action. Let's see how this works out.

We're still playing it :)

David Eddings had an area in his Belgariad/Malloreon series of books where spellcasters would summon ineffable demons, part of the summoning was picturing a form to hold control of said demons, part of their duels was trying to make something more gross, horrifying and anatomically improbable than the person you were battling.

Anyway, Eidolons fit into that concept to a T.

It's one of the few places that a RAW summoner fits. For me though, a summoner is more flavorful with a more limited selection of evolutions by selecting from the list in Ultimate Magic.

You want to talk about journalistic ethics in games coverage?

Then you should talk about where the money comes from. A website plastered with advertising for a Triple-A game by a huge publisher like EA, also reviews said game. How "unbiased" do you think that coverage is? How unbiased will their coverage of other games from that publisher be?

Indie developers are not the problem when it comes to the ethics of games journalism.

Games journalism is mostly extended PR, except for the odd editorial, or consumer advocate. You want to talk about the ethics of games journalism, then follow the damn money.

Let's look at the Data.

For those of you who don't like reading, less than 0.5% of articles talk about feminist topics.

Not your shield also started on 4Chan as another method of harassment and distraction. I am happy to dismiss a side of an argument that has no basis in reality.

Cisgender heterosexual white dudes already have all the cards, your perceived inequality to white people is fear that people (women, poc, queer and gender fluid) without our privileges having the same power we do.

As a kid, I wondered why girls didn't play video games. Now when women want to play and try to tell us how they can be included, they get threatened, harrassed and ignored.

So yeah, I'm dismissing a side of this "argument" because one side is wrong. The opposition to the feminist "agenda" is that women don't deserve the same rights as men.

If games are art, then they are allowed to have a point of view and are political artifacts. This means that if a game company wants to create a game that promotes diversity and tolerance, or a single independent creator wants to make a game about their personal experience they are allowed to.

GamerGate was created by the disgusting depths of 4Chan to shame women who are trying to change the culture of gaming for the better. I will never support the harassment of any creator.

OTOH, if there's no difference, why bother?

Because at the same time for a player it's kind of cool when you say:

"There's a five legged creature before you, from each foot spring three claws. All five legs are arrayed around it, much like a spider, though its body is conical with eyes arrayed all around it. It rears back to reveal a blender-like mouth of teeth at the bottom of the cone."

Players: "What the hell is that?"

You know what reaction you get from players when you present them with something they've never seen before. Shock, confusion, fear. Everything their characters should feel.

You know what happens when you give a fighter a laser pistol? He can cast scorching ray as long as the batteries last: Who says fighters can't have nice things?

There's plenty of points, and many of them are it introduces the most important element to a fantasy RPG:

When you decide not to change your mind then it's too late.

But if you want to open your heart to the radical, and haven't read the Tech Guide yet, or the Guide to Numeria, or Iron Gods please do yourself a favor and read them with an open mind.

Think of it, wizards drinking the juice that leaks out of ancient spaceships, driving them mad, and paranoid, and greedy and mad. Did I say mad twice? Probably because I really meant it.

Giant robotic scorpions wielding machineguns, being hunted down by Barbarians who can shrug off barrages of bullets because they're just that tough and what's a little lump of metal compared to the stroke of an axe?

I dunno, why punish the players for fortifying their borders?

Have barbarians attack Tatzlford and give the defenders some hefty bonuses to defense. If the PCs easily repel the invasion then they'll feel clever for their foresight. The point of the attack on Tatzlford isn't to destroy Tatzlford it's the "call to action" that something stinks in Drelev.

Option A: Draw the whole map on a flip mat or two. Should take about 10-20 minutes depending on the complexity of the map. Take post-it notes, and cover the map in the post in notes. As the players move they can remove the post-its.

Option 2: Draw the whole map on paper (or photocopy from the book or use the interactive maps). Take that map put it on the table and say: "You are here, please don't metagame." It's surprising how well that works.

Option iii: Seriously just relax, theré's no perfect method.

Flail snails guys. It's the best way.

Seriously though it depends on the campaign, because different campaigns have different needs. I call it the Marvel vs DC game building. Although the reference is slightly dated, since they've become so similar.

In a "Marvel" style game the characters are interesting, and the world exists to showcase what's interesting about those characters. It's a "characters first, setting second" style of world. So with a Marvel style game the player characters will in some senses dictate the setting. If your group is a Human Fighter, Android Nanite Sorcerer, Elf Witch and Catfolk Alchemist then you are going to have a point of view character, some sci-fi elements, deal with a dark patron's demands and maybe meet the Catfolk race. The characters have dictated the story to tell (Guardians of the Galaxy is a good example of this).

In a "DC" universe, the setting is interesting and the characters are meant to be representative elements of that setting. Most APs run more smoothly if the advice in the player's guide is followed, characters feel more integrated into the setting, the players get to interact with the cool stuff in the setting with minimum dissonance. If you're playing Mummy's Mask you'll come up with appropriate treasure hunters and Egypt themed characters and have a grand time. Show up with a Nanite powered Android sorcerer and you're just begging to have your backstory ignored.

There is no one true way, as a GM sometimes I'm one way, sometimes I'm the other (often I'm a mix of both). As a player I try to follow the GM's advice, but in general am more satisfied with a character that integrates with the setting.

I tie the names of the various classes to some snails, then attach tiny flails to their eyestalks and let them battle to the death. The survivors remain in my campaign.

I've only just started watching, to find out what the fuss is about. I never watched old Who, as a kid I was very unimpressed with the sets, acting, dialogue.

I'm only just on Season 3, I liked Rose, she always made time for the ignored.

Runaway Bride was the most recent episode I watched, Donna Noble was fantastic at keeping the Doctor on the back foot. She's funny too, which is very important.

It seems the rest of the season has Martha Jones, and I think she'll make an interesting counterpoint to Rose.

Nononono.

See, as a swashbuckler player I am not a bloody body guard. I'm an adventurer.

If there's minotaurs I'm going to bounce around the room and buckle swash. If the spellcaster gets a minotaur in his face then he should probably have prepped invisibility or summon monster or any number of spells to deal with that contingency.

As a swashbuckler my single hits deal decent damage because I get to add my level to damage (twice my level to damage with panache) whenever I want. So I don't full attack unless I'm sure I have the AoO's to counter whatever the foes have.

MEATSHIELD is not a party role. If you are a spellcaster, then you better have picked some spells scrolls or wands to keep you safe, because heaven knows "Stand Still and Get Hit" is the most boring possible role I could think of.

In the party roles the Swashbuckler is closer to the Skilled/Rogue/Striker character than the Fighter, it's a class that has big moments thanks to Derring-Do and awesome deeds. Not just standing about and getting clubbed so the spellcasters can end the fights.

I'm sorry why do I need to protect the spellcasters? They are soooo much better than martials. If they want meatshields to stand in between themselves and the enemy they can cast summon monster themselves.

The swashbuckler should be striking the enemy spellcasters, or trolling monsters with great damage spikes and spring-attacking retreats. I'm sick of people complaining about martial classes because they can't imagine how to play differently.

We use ridiculous words in this hobby all the time, Cheliax, Illithid, BAB, Vancian Spellcasting. It's shorthand for:

Evil Empire of Devil Worshippers
Squid-headed monsters,
Base Attack bonus,
A game mechanic to represent magic which is modelled on the fiction of the writer Jack Vance.

I haven't watched Anime in years, I hear some of it is good and some of it is bad. But when we take part in a hobby that is basically playing pretend with dice, I don't think it's right to be dismissive or authoritarian of other people's language use.

I will say however that in addition to my request for an old lady iconic, I also want a full-figured iconic. As a fat dude I'd like to see some representation and psychics don't need to run when they can float everywhere Baron Harkonnen style.

Although not Baron Harkonnen fat, I'm talking more Sammo Hung, Voodoo Lady, Kingpin, Doctor Octopus or Amanda Waller.

No. Cheliax is about a tyrannical regime, with devils working in tandem with the corrupt government. Devils are a part of that regime but it's mostly humans that are in charge and the antagonists.

Wrath of the Righteous was PRIMARILY about fighting outsiders, and planehopping to the Abyss.

Hell's Rebels is staying on the material plane and overthrowing a corrupt government.

Broad generalisations don't make things better.

To The Topic At Hand

Someone already mentioned Journey to the Centre of Golarion

But I'd also like to see 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, a campaign almost entirely under water.

I wanna see War of the Worlds with an adventure kicking off with an invasion of Golarion by aliens, and a group of plucky heroes hopping in a spaceship for a system wide tour to get allies to retake their world.

I wanna see The Time Machine where characters travel to key points in history to stop a powerful evil from ever rising.

Actually the themes of those two are similar. A calamity occurs, and all is lost from the start but our heroes fight back to set things right and perhaps change the status quo of Golarion forever.

I dunno there might be the germ of something interesting here, but I think the Unchained versions of the APs are the ones run with the aid of the awesome people here on the messageboards.

From my own Kingmaker Expansions to Carrion Crown's letters to tie the story together more tightly (I haven't read those posts as I want to play CC someday). I think the APs are vastly improved when GMs use the resources on these boards to add what I like to think of as the "9th Author" to the APs (7 being the Developer, 8 being the GM themselves).

I think APs Unchained should be a thread on the boards where people post the community created stuff they found most handy or inspiring.
