We are seriously considering supporting. Even if we don't directly, I plan on sending an adventure I am currently writing for Traveller to Rob as a sample of my writing and ask to be considered for writing an adventure path adventure.

The most I.portant thing to remember is that the classes will be compatible, meaning that you can take a class from one and use it in the other with little issue. As for what classes generally look like, I'd say, look to unchained, ACG, and OA: open choices (arcanist) where your last choice may have nothing to do with the previous choice, classes with themed choices (shaman, unchained summoner, kinectist) where your later class choices are limited based on an early decision (but not by much), and classes that can do more than heal (warpriest, hunter).

Beyond that, don't expect to see some radical new approach to class design.

Right, but I called next year GenCon, as opposed to sometime in the future.

I'm guess that science fiction adventures will be the gencon hardback

I just want to say I called it. I had no inside knowledge. Just my guess based on what is popular right now and what paizo did in the past with their adventures/player companions and what they haven't done with their hardbacks.

NPC Codex 2

I avoided talking about that since I have inside information on that. As in listed in the credits information.

But I will say that whatever the fall 2016 hardback is, it is really great.

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

I'm guessing:
Spring 2017 ap: French revolution country ap, intrigue based adventures.

Spring hardback: honestly, I don't know. I'm guess that science fiction adventures will be the gencon hardback, but I really don't know what the spring one will be.

Society theme: something cthulhu-ish

Anyone else not at PaizoCon want to guess?

Because babies are the perfect midnight snack.

How terrible are we that that was my first thought?

How about the child is not a child at all. It really is a powerful key to unlocking a series of magical defenses, keeping a magical demon at bay?

How about the baby is really a dead god reincarnated?

How about the bbeg is really the father/mother?

How about the dragon took the child without the bbeg's knowledge?

Any of these work for you?

A Harbinger of Doom Descends From The Sky

Following the disappearance of personnel at a lumber camp, a mysterious sword drops from the sky, cleaving the very earth to deliver a pronouncement of doom upon all who refuse to leave the logging site.

Aren't people worried about bloat and power creep?

HA! No! IMO, they have put out so little I am far more worried about implosion due to not enough options. I would have expected a second monster book, a sizable book of player options (the FR book does not count), and ... more by now.

This book looks terrific and very thematically-appropriate to my current campaign. It's now officially added to my Shopping Cart for my next purchase.

I do regret not getting the BoHR: Advanced Subscription. Especially since I've bought most of the separate race books piecemeal. Regardless, I highly recommend this outstanding series of racial showcase PDF's. I haven't run into a weak PDF yet. They're all useful, creative, information-dense content, as is usual with most JBE publishings.

Thank you for all the kind remarks. :D

This is actually specifically addressed on the d20 SRD.

"Ninja: Add a +1 bonus on Disguise checks to appear as a human (or their original race if the ninja has the Failed Transformation UP or Strong Blooded UP trait), and a +1/2 bonus on Stealth checks. [JBE:BoHR:AFCO]"

Looks as though if the elan possesses either one of these traits that they are able to take their parent races favored class bonus.
That's how I would rule it, anyways.

As the guy that published that bit, I would agree.

Sorry, no. We have two races to go: Wyrwoods and gillmen. Then the Compendium is complete.

They seem to keep a full publishing schedule. Even if they bit, it would likely take a while to find a slot of it.

Sure, that is what a good company does. But that doesn't mean that it might not appear in a pathfinder module line 2 years after pitching it.

Abjectly "No." We absolutely cannot look at or read unsolicited material for a raft of legal reasons. Please do not do this thing.

Alrighty then. Would it be ok to suggest that he pitch the idea to Paizo and see if they bite?

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Here's the thing: How close do you want to be Paizo's material do you want to be? Don't answer that just yet. Before I am done, you will probably find that this answer is different than you currently think. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you simply like the basic ideas that Paizo has put into the Akiton or do you absolutely love every single word they have published on the planet? To reduce it to a simple yes or not: Did you change anything, at all, no matter how tiny?
  • Did you add anything to it that Paizo did not create? Countries, towns, NPCs, mountains, ruins, etc? Anything?
  • Do you want to go beyond the campaign and also release additional sellables? Player's Guides, Campaign Setting material, Another campaign, anything?

If the answer to any of these is "Yes," then you do not want to be as close to Paizo's material as you had previously thought. If you answered "No," to all of them, then I recommend submitting it off to Paizo. They might be interested in it.

Assuming you said "Yes," my best recommendation is calling the line of products "Red Planet" and then just name the planet something else entirely. People will know what you are talking about from the product line name and if people like it enough, they will either use your material in place of Paizo's (changing the name of the planet) or just use it as a stand alone setting.

Oh and don't mention Paizo's setting in any way. At all. Pretend it doesn't exist when you write. Use their writing as inspiration, in the same way I have a tactician archetype in the upcoming Advanced Wyrwoods where the player can throw a shield and it returns is clearly based on Captain America but never mentions the comics/movies ever.

Average table size can technically hold 8, but 4-6 players is usually a good cap for a standard game.

After having run games at paizocon last year for 8+ people, I highly recommend making the cap 6 with 4 being ideal. Should I return this year, that will be a change I make.
