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.

JBE recently released Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Androids (read the 5-STAR Review), and we are finishing up Advanced Wyrwoods.

There has been any news about Horror Adventures? How about a playtest?

I doubt we'll hear anything about HA until PaizoCon. Also there aren't any new classes in there so no need for a playtest.

Hey, what are/what is the design philosophy behind the mundane items? I'm interested but want to know what I'm getting before I throw money at it.

There's only one piece of mundane equipment in here. Its a visor that grants a +2 circumstance bonus to Perception.

BTW BOHR: Advanced Androids is my Thursday review (posted on Paizo Friday) as part of month of Science Fiction for Pathfinder leading up to a campaign I've been planning for half a year.

Wahoo!

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

So what do people think of Scifi in their fantasy? Do you want more science fiction playable races?

True but that only last 1 hour per level and I can only cast it once per day like you said. Most fights in our games are spread out over the day as such I would like to not have to be a sitting duck for most combat encounters in the early game.

Well if you don't mind 3rd party, there is the Walk the Land racial trait in the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Merfolk. It pretty much trades your armored scales for the ability to alter self at will into a human. [no ability scores adjustment though]

EDIT: Here's a link to the review of the Advanced Merfolk book, including the Walk the Land trait: Advanced Merfolk

Thanks for mentioning us graystone.

You can read Malwing's review and download Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Merfolk right here at Paizo. It has a number of excellent merfolk options.

In my opinion, the best place to start is with the Book of Heroic Races: Player Races 1. It's chocked full of new balanced races for 5e and has a 5-Star review. If you are interested in adventures, we have a pair that you can find right here. (full disclosure these are from my company)

From there, I would recommend checking out either Frog God Games or Legendary Games. They're both good and worth checking out.

Well it is going to depend greatly on how the city and the people view magic in general, and it is going to vary from city to city.

If the city views magic as:

  • A tool, helpful for all even if not accessible by all, then it will probably be in or near the local guild hall or near the market with shops nearby. It will be either totally unguarded or minimally guarded. The few guards that are there are more to collect the toll for using the circle.

  • A power to be kept in the hands of the elite, then there will be one in the mage's tower, guarded by powerful warding to keep various undesired creature types (demons/devils, fey, etc) from using it altogether and to hold desired creature types (humanoids) in a contained area until they can be cleared for entry. Guards: a duty of the lower ranking wizards will be to watch the circle and let one of the higher ranking wizards know when someone comes.

  • A power that should not be trusted but is necessary for the king, then in a converted dungeon with mundane protection (aka stone walls) magnified by magical protection. Guards: oh yes.

  • An excess of an eccentric ruler, then just about everywhere. Literally, you'll see them in random houses, all over the palace, near the stable. There will be one near the ruler's bed chamber for booty calls. For a period of time, building them will be a public works project.

That's just what I can think of off the time of my head.

One of my players in my Kingmaker campaign

Let me just stop you right there.

First off, let me just say that I love me Kingmaker. My company's early Pathfinder products were directly centered around Kingmaker because I love that campaign that much. I GMed it back in the day.

Having said that, Kingmaker has some serious problems with it. Namely over-reliance on low level monsters well long after they are useful. I had the exact same problem as you and the APG was new when we were playing.

Then there is the fact that the game assumes characters have 4-5 encounters before resting and Kingmaker has an average of 1-2, with only a few exceptions. Take your Sorc/Wiz problem for a moment. he can do that trick many times/day. So the only way for them to be challenged is to give them situations where that cannot be used.

Suggestions:

  • A peasant revolt in their Kingdom. That is just low level guys straight out of the NPC Codex.

  • Monsters with spell resistance.

  • Place old ruins or caves in the kingdom that need explored. Adventure A Week modules or some converted Goodman Games/Necromancer modules are great for this.

  • Forget the random encounters. If there is plot relevant stuff to be found in a hex, it is found and move on. Instead, focus on the multi-encounter days.

As for converting to 5e, yea, it can make a difference. Its a good game and I highly recommend it myself. But that is a decision you need to talk to the group about.

Advanced Andriods has just been added.

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

Yea, after seeing these, I started working on their celestial equivalents. But since all the angels are high cr, I also have to make the celestial as well.

Do the spells as prevented here seem balanced to you, since I'll be using them as a basis for the other variations.

Happy Belated Birthday, Malwing. And thank you for reviewing Advanced Changelings. Truly, your 5 Star review was a present to me.

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

Malwing gave the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Changelings a 5 Star Review! I am glad you liked it so much and hope you enjoy the rest as much.

There are no mechanics included in the Aroden article.

Other than listing his domains. Which brings up the question, what are his subdomains, mysteries, and inquisitions?

Thank you Malwing. I am glad you enjoyed this and hope you enjoy the rest of the series.

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Merfolk Just got a 4-star review. Combine that with 5-Star Rating for Advanced Changelings and we have a nice average review going on for the series.

Check out this series and tell us what you think.

I guess he was more of a Magus?

That is what I thought of at first, but thinking on it, I am guessing he was a bard. I mean the guy was good at so much, he appears as everything under the sun, plus he was a spellcaster. Bard is really the way to do it.

Forthe record, I have been waiting for this much information on Aroden since Pathfinder #1. It is everything I have been waiting for. Thank you Eric. And I can't wait to have the time to read the Adventure, James.

Congratulations Paizo Crew on #100.

The poll ran for 24 hours, but 74% of the respondents wanted levels 1-10, with a slight edge to level 6-10 over 1-5.

And don't forget you can download our existing 5e material at Paizo.com.

And that's what let me get over it: the realization that "flat" math enables some kinds of stories while "tall" math enables other kinds of stories, and it's okay that neither is capable of telling all kinds of stories.

So I calibrated my expectations of what types of stories I will and won't be a part of in 5E, it's been smooth sailing ever since. :)

Fair points all around.

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

We've got a twitter poll going of adventures for next year. We are trying to figure out where to concentrate our efforts. Vote in the poll to tell us what level range of adventures you want to see.

Agreed with everyone else. There is alot less math involved so it is a much easier game to play and run. Adjudicating things are much simpler (forget "does this conditional bonus apply or not", its just advantage or disadvantage). The flatter math of the whole game means monsters stick around longer and a CR 3 encounter is still good when the the players are level 6 without it being a cakewalk encounter.

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

Hmmm, Not in the monster manual. Note to self for future reference.

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

Pretty cool. Personally, I prefer to just make a "new" monster that has the exact same flavor (or is inspired by) as the old monster.

Forgot to mention earlier, I picked up Book of Beasts: Wandering Monsters, Book of Friends and Foes: Under the Mountain, and Deadly Delves: Reign of Ruin earlier in the sale. (I already own and have enjoyed the Shadowsfall products; I'm a sucker for planar material.) I'm looking forward to reading the Deadly Delve!

Of the ones you picked up, Reign of Ruin is definitely my favorite (and that's saying alot, considering I wrote the other two). Our editor Richard Moore wrote that one and he really did n excellent job on that.

The BoHR: A Subscription already has catfolk, changelings, elans, lizardfolk, merfolk, samsarans, skinwalkers, tengus, and wyvarans completed, all of which you get immediately on purchasing the subscription. The chapters on androids, gillmen, and wyrwoods are still in development. Once they are all done, they'll be gathered and released as one giant compilation.

Thank you kindly.

What are the best G+ groups?

I recommend D&D 5e (link).

The problem with GiantITP.com for myself and other publishers is that we can't even talk about our own products, even when someone else brings up our products. According to the board's rules, that's against the rules. So I do not spend any time there.

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

There's only about 24 hours left on this sale. Buy these amazing deals right now before they are gone.

At d20fpsrd, we have everything on we sell there on sale for 40% off. So there’s everything above on sale, but also you can grab the:

If you (or your fellow players/GM) have any interest in these underutilized races, the BoHR:A subscription is an excellent deal, full of all kinds of flavorful crunchy traits, feats, archetypes, spells, and alternate racial abilities.

thank you for the recommendation good miss.
