We're actually working on the next batch right now, so hopefully we'll have it up before too long!
YAY! Been WAITING! I would LOVE a "subscription" model that automatically sends me the short fiction as it is completed on the website. Seriously! I KNOW you guys are giving it away free... I just would like an epub version. :)

I finally received my copy of The Complete John Thunstone, and WOW, is it a beautifully produced book. If you dig Wellman, you should definitely check it out. The stories are amazing, too.
I got mine the other week. Fantastic stuff! :D
Any chance of more short fiction epubs? I know... I know... I can read them online. But I'd rather read them on my Kindle. And I love having the whole story collected in one place that is easily accessible to me. So.. any chance of more epubs? Pretty please? :)
I remember being excited seeing KQ in our local Books-A-Million.... I guess it just didn't last. Well.. I love my unfortunately small collection. And have nothing but nice things to say about every one of the Minions.
I doubt we've seen a lot. WotC is NOT going to give us a game that pretty much fits into a 75 page book.....
However, I am enjoying the simpler rules (though I get that with Savage Worlds already).

Sorry.. I should have clarified. I'm using a Rooted Nook tablet with access to the Play Store. Yet the app is listed as incompatible. Perhaps it is the version of Android?
I'd hoped things would pick up again in 2012... and I ill still look forward to Planet Stories starting back up in the future. I'll second the appreciation for introducing me to Manly Wade Wellman. He is, without a doubt, the best thing I've been exposed to in the run. Mr Mona, you handed me my first Planet Stories book at GenCon a few years ago and I can't thank you enough. Since then Brackett, Burroughs, Moore, Lovecraft, and more have sprung to life for me. Thanks a bunch and I look forward to more in the future.
I agree. This line got me into this genre. The only reason I cancelled MY subscription is the THREE Silverberg novels in a row. I'm not a fan and couldn't justify the expense. But I do hope the line continues... especially if there was more Manly Wade Wellman or Brackett or Kline etc. :)
Sweet! Found the books at Haffner Press. http://www.haffnerpress.com/
The book with her husband (Edmond Hamilton) COULD be Stark and the Star Kings.

I've been using Calibre for about a year now. I've upgraded each time and have NEVER had a problem. I use both the Windows version and the Linux version and STILL have had no problems. Just for the record, I have the Kindle 3. If there are glitches with other readers, I don't know what they are and haven't encountered them. Seriously, Calibre is first rate.

See... that is exactly the sort of thing a person getting ready to announce 5th Edition D&D would say. ;)
Thanks to Planet Stories, my eyes were opened to a whole new world of science fiction and fantasy. One of my absolute favorites outside of the imprint is Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter of Mars. Disney released the trailer recently and it looks amazing. Any one else have some comments?
Three questions.... do you mean you tried to convert one of the Paizo files? Which one? Were you using Calibre to do it?
Just to be clear, I KNOW... extended experience from the first files released... that converting epub files to mobi files works on every single epub Paizo has released. It's not as simple as click on file A and select "Convert to Kindle readable version."
If you tried to convert a PDF to a mobi, then you MAY have a problem converting. But I have never tried this so I can't state for certain.
Please give me a little more information so I can help. :)

I'll second the use of Calibre. I use it all the time. The conversion process is VERY easy.
By the way, Calibre will not only convert the file, it will upload it to your Kindle if it's connected by USB or you can set it up to email it your Kindle.
Not even close. Paizo staff has been MUCH kinder to WotC and 4e than I have ever been especially in public. Now... if Lisa has been tossing smack about 4e in her pillow talk.. well I'm not privy to that sort of thing. Nuthin but love for ya, Lisa! ;)
Thanks, Smerg! We are on RPGPodcasts but I didn't even know about Crosstalk. I'm off to spread the word. :)
The only reason I went with a lower strength is because of the Sithi description as tall, slender and lithe. They always seem more fast than strong. But I'm not married to it. :)
I think GodEmperorDrothan is on to something, though. I'm not entirely sure Pathfinder is the best setting for a campaign. I think you could do a short set of games (3-5 at most) where your PCs don't change levels. But another game system may prove more appropriate. Savage Worlds COULD fit, but a story game setting like Burning Wheel might be better.
Thanks for the pointer. I've got this game and like the concept but am interested in hearing other people's play results.
We are having fun with it. Burning Wheel as a system is lots of fun. Burning Empires as a setting is fascinating. Burning Empires as a modified Burning Wheel system is a little different and has some peculiarities I'm not certain of at the moment. But... like I said... we are having a great deal of fun.
This is certainly one of my favorite series. And it shouldn't be TOO hard to Pathfinderize.
The books are decidedly low magic. No wizards or clerics or other spell slingers are viable as classes.
Human are straight up the same.
The Sithi and Norns are essentially the same... just from ideologically different families. You could start with the elven race stats. They aren't as strong as humans but are certainly faster and more agile. So a dex bonus is a must followed by a str penalty. They are also considered beautiful.... even if perilously so.... so a charisma bonus is warranted. There is nothing like dark vision in the series so that could be dropped off.
The trolls are more like half-lings. You could certainly just use those stats as they are.
The FUN stuff is Ineluki's Red Hand. You could probably use wights as their basis.
Good books.. aren;t they. :)
Hey Gamer Guys and Gals,
My group, the Roo Sack Gamers, has launched an actual play podcast. It covers Burning Empire so you can listen in as we make lots of mistakes and have a fantastic time regardless. :)

When you get around to reading the book, though, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
It's on my pile as well. My problem is that I read mostly by Kindle now and only read non-ebooks when at home. Most of my reading comes on the bus. :)
Can't wait though. I LOVED Who Fears the Devil.
Yeah... I'm a little worried as well. There is only one item listed as upcoming. I've rather enjoyed the series. It's taken me on a journey through the masters of spec-fic. After reading some of the earlier books, I picked up some classics on my own. It's been great getting to know these "forgotten" masters. Hopefully, the series has a bit of a resurgence.
