It COULD be an idea not to buy a ring until she has said yes and you can go shopping together?

This is my recommendation. Or you take her out to dinner and "happen to stop" in a ring store. She'll get the hint and will be ultra helpful in helping you know exactly what she likes. Hell, she might even know her size off hand and can tell you what she has been dreaming her ring to be since she was 5 years old. And I guarantee that you will still be excited when the time comes, even if she picked it out for you in the store.

But afterward leaving the store, you can talk about your family stone.

Congratulations. Always good to see us gamers having our happily ever afters.

These are not (usually) divine beings; patrons are powerful parties who are helping the witch out for their own reasons, and they have their own agendas and plans that they are trying to further.

I considered doing this myself. I've talked with a number of witch fans and this (from what I have observed) is a minority view in them. But it was the words of my wife that convinced me that I should not do this. She said that witches communed with the raw forces of nature, the woods, fire, the cycle of life and death, etc. There is no person or personality to the force itself, but that same force gives (or better, reveals) power to those that are apart of it. Or at least that is our best understanding since neither of us are Wiccan.

If there is a Wiccan on the boards and I got it wrong, please feel free to correct me.

Today we share with you hexes from the Agility patron. Read all about them at JonBrazer.com.

Question: would you like the patrons defined more? Should they have names, personalities, goals, ...? Should they be more than vague nebulous forces? Should they be as detailed as deities, even if they lack the restrictions the religious classes (cleric, paladin, inquisitor, warpriest) have?

Just to give you a quick preview, gillmen currently has a new aegis customization, 2 new hunter animal foci, a new soulknife blade skill, a new time thief temporal talent, and new archetypes for bloodrager, magus, monk, and warpriest, just to name a few. Right now (as in, I took a break from writing it to post this here), I am working on a new wilder surge.

This issue of the AP is my favorite for quite some time. A James Jacobs adventure. An article on a piece of the campaign setting I've been waiting to read about for 100 issues written by Erik Mona. Monsters by Adam Daigle.

You guys have been doing killer work for quite a while, but #100 is a jewel.

Suppose I roll up a Hobgoblin PC for this campaign. What would that entail?

That, without a doubt, would be a question for the GM. Some GM's will say, "the people would execute you in 5 seconds." Other GM's would see what you're doing and say, " OK, but you are going to be at a penalty to all social rolls and people will be slow to trust you unless they know you beforehand." It really could go either way.

When I ran it, I had the characters run into everyone's favorite kobold tribe bringing home an owlbear egg. After the players (players, not characters) recovered from their heartattacks, the characters followed the kobolds tracks back to the owlbear nest and they killed both the mother and father owlbear before they could track the egg snatchers down.

Disclaimer: I received a review copy.

Now, I have to say that I am massively impressed with this product. It is not a bestiary so much as it is an ecology primer on a bunch of new creatures that are original, inspiring, and effective. Ranging from animal to elemental to monstrocity, there are plenty of interesting and original creatures to use in your campaigns. For each creature or type we are given a wide number of alternative builds, whether they be stronger versions of the base creature, or full distinct variations on a similar theme. For instance, we get young, adult, and elder spider bears, while the druidic guardians are varied by elemental type.

Each cluster of creatures comes with plot hooks, potential treasure (when it makes sense), and pointers for how a creature might behave in battle. This, coupled with the brief but comprehensive descriptions give creatures a depth that is not conveyed in a 1 page stat block. And although the hit point values are a bit low for a given CR, the creatures themselves are excellently represented for 5th edition statistics.

I very much look forward to seeing more books like this, and it has even changed my view on what shorter bestiaties should be. Without the history of older and established monsters, every new beast needs to be as fleshed out as the ones in this book.

5 out of 5 stars, and my royal seal.

Thank you Loranthorn. I really appreciate it.

science fantasy is one of the most popular genres out there,

That truly isn't much of an indicator. Star Wars RPG is the only science fiction RPG that held its own in the top 5 RPGs. Traveller was popular back in the day, but it never held a candle to DnD. Mongoose has had the Traveller license since '08 and it may have made the top 5 once, maybe. The Warhammer 40k RPGs have been there for a while, but they're gone now.

Mind you, Paizo knows all this and, from the way Vic was talking, budgeted for it. And IMO that is the real trick to making RPGs profitable: budgeting right. So I am confident that Paizo will make the game profitable. They're smart cookies

We at LPJ Design are definitely going to support Starfinder.

The only thing really keeping us from saying we will definitely be supporting Starfinder at this point is the fact we haven't seen the license yet.

Mind you, its Paizo; I'm sure the license will be somewhere near identical to the Pathfinder license.

However, I said nearly those exact words earlier this year with the new edition of Traveller and ... well ... when we saw the license and had time to digest it, we were not thrilled. We considered walking away for a time. Ultimately we stuck with it, even if we are not happy. But I am looking before I leap this time.

So not sure if I understand this: Does this mean the game is being pushed back for final release (with an open playtest around next year gencon? Or is it being released next gencon?

I'd assume the playtest is a test to see how popular starfinder is and if there is enough interest for them to consider a society structure.

Otherwise, it is just a demo.

@Athos710 #Starfinder will not be a hard science fiction with lots of realistic FTL science. Softer with some things that break "rules".
