After reading the journal entries, I was wondering if this campaign will ever be published?

Shadow Under Sandpoint, as ran, went from 1st level to about 10th level. I had other plans to go all the way to 20th, but I sort of abandoned those and did a different thing, sending the group to Osirion instead.

I could certainly see Shadow Under Sandpoint as an AP, though. Or perhaps as a single giant adventure or even as a boxed set. In any event, if something DOES go forward with it... I will be writing the whole thing—it's one of those things I don't really want to share with other authors.

It's not currently on any schedule, in any event. Would folks like to see a giant campaign set mostly in and under and around Sandpoint?

YES.

Sounds like a pretty cool experience, Thod!

Zaister, I suppose I must live vicariously through you. The agony!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Loving this product! Any word on the iOS app?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Ugh. Thank you for passing on the word Steven. I am sorry to hear this and wish the best for his family.

I LOVE the idea of cold start.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Love the synergy! I also use the fiction for this very reason. Looking for to more Alaeron adventures!

Awesome! After the disappointing flop of Razor Coast, I'm itching for a good pirate module.
I think you might have an exclusive on that opinion.

No... see some of the reviews floating around. They're actually pretty accurate (it just depends on how much certain things bother you).

I agree with everything you said, except for the "No" part. The OP did say "flop" and Razor Coast is the opposite of that. Endzeitgeist's review is right on the money (as usual). RC is brilliant, albeit it does have its flaws.

Gotta agree with Tanru and Anaro -- why did I have to hunt and search and come here to find this out?

Why didn't I receive an email?

To be fair, did you really have to "hunt and search"? Customer Service forum/August Shipment thread (They have done a monthly thread for quite some time in this exact way/place.).

Perhaps an email "in addition" to the thread would've helped, but let's not get too crazy.

Thank you for the update.

Exciting stuff!!

I'm with in that I want awesome Pve, but I also want awesome pvp :) PvP is MUCH more difficult to get right than Pve. With that said, Paizo is chockfull of the best adventure designers out there, so I have no doubt we will see great pve.

Looking forward to more Alaeron adventures!

Steel wind, thank you for bringing much needed reality to this discussion. Being an avid VTT user, I would also likeVTT-ready packs, and I believe Paizo is well aware of that and their history shows they listen. Based on the Gamespace discussions it seems inevitable given time.

Side note, as soon as I see bystanders/fans start talking about how easy it would be to do "x" I can only smile and shake my head. Devaluing someone else's work from the sidelines never works. Not to mention it shows a profound sense of ignorance wrapped in an unwillingness to understand.

Good luck.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Congrats on all of the ennies! Well deserved!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Awesome job! BIG improvement.

Side note, to those using IE, please at least TRY Firefox and/or Chrome. Do the world a favor :)

I hope everyone is roleplaying regardless of what they are doing. Not sure why it seems like folks have to choose, you don't. Just pretend you are a person in the world that you are in (Golarion). It is easy! :)


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Kudos on this character concept and for presenting it. Cool character as well!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Congrats on getting this started!

Goblin Squad Member

Congrats all!!!

Goblin Squad Member

Really interesting developments!

Goblin Squad Member

Wicked joke :)

Goblin Squad Member

I do not think names changes should be allowed. But if it is allowed, the naming history should be available.

Goblin Squad Member

Congrats to all!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Thanks Sara!!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

I prefer 15 pt buy. I believe it gives you more room as a GM, and supports/fosters characters becoming awesome in what they experience.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Sara,

Is the Ultrapro PACG mat shipping with this shipment? Thanks!

Thats the plan man! Right now we are doing some testing that the designers need. For future events, we are going to be mixing things up a bit. My plan is to have an all out battle to the death the last weekend of Alpha!!

Glad to hear it!

Goblin Squad Member

Glad to see everything progressing!

I think the Bonny Adventures is a good idea, though I hope you take it as an opportunity to educate and excite people about the universe they are playing in. "Hey, look! There is a bonecrusher goblin! Did you know they worship so and so? Yep! Not to mention they were involved such and such in 4708 AR. A prize to the first person that can tell me what other big event happened that year!" Etc etc That is the sort of stuff that will the game environment interesting and unique, and you can still be learning the mechanics at the same time! :)

I'm really, REALLY hoping to see some long group-focused questlines. Those are always interesting, occasionally frustrating, and definitely bonding experiences. Also the source for epic player-generated sagas and songs!

Forgeholm's entire existence is due to the start of a "long, group-focused questline".

Fanndis is working on parts of our storyline to share with the forums, so I won't spoil much, but we have a reason for being in the Riverlands, and an achievable goal we are working towards as a group that is more than just "beat up on our neighbors and amass a bunch of gold."

Kudos to Forgeholm! I hope we see more of this approach.

Well said.

Looking forward to this set!

Found this post which suggests that there will be NPC markets at least for low level items.
My sense is that they've changed that design to having starter gear drop from low-level mobs near the starter towns. Chatting with Ryan the other day, he was very excited about the beginning of Early Enrollment when everyone will start the game with 0 XP, no Role-based Feats, and a Club.

I am excited about this as well. I cannot wait to see the community grow organically.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

REALLY looking forward to the iOS version!

Aye, congratulations!

A fertile bunch! ;) I wish both you and your families the very best!

At launch, DAoC's capital cities were bustling hubs of player chatter, filled with crafters and their customers.

A month after the launch of housing, they were ghost towns.

This exactly what I do not want to see happen. Any mechanism that has the potential to remove players from play even willingly is counterproductive for goal of the game.

Simultronics did a good job with special ticket-based adventures. Purchase a ticket and you gain "entry."

Dragonrealms and Gemstone. These two games are worth looking at for a lot of different reasons, not the least of which is how they deal with ticket-based adventures. Their Guide program and support RPing in general is also inspirational.

Microtransactions are nothing new, and they will definitely be present. Just a matter of doing it well.

The mention of Moorcock, Brust, Blackwand and Iceflame all in one post gives me great joy. Thank you SKR :)


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Sold! I, as a GM, really enjoy this sort of detail, and the assistance in obtaining it.

Goblin Squad Member

Now that I have seen it in action, it was funny the first couple times. After that, not so much :)

Goblin Squad Member

@eox

You articulated the situation well. I was intentionally being brief with my comments :)

Re #1 mechanics
I think the direction GW is moving is positive in this respect. Players need to have real power in their hands and have viable and meaningful choices.

The trick is to support player power without making it too easy for the jerk disguised as Evil to abuse those mechanics. It is hear where I think we have to be careful, which it seems GW is well aware of this particular area.

Re #2 rp

Well said. The upside is that it seems like "evil" characters will have access to roughly as much power as any other, and that power should be able to sustain them through the sacrifice. But as you say, it is challenging, which gets back to my comments.

Given the current direction of GW, I think RP programs like what you have brought up is an a great approach. Partnering with "evil" guilds will also be an interesting element, because it is often hard to have a "powerful" evil character due to the lack of support.

I am really excited to see the RP we can generate with PFO's aproach to player power!

I wanted to see how thematically in-character people were going to approach the game before I went that way.
I think you can count on it that a lot of us will be working hard to fit in with the River Kingdoms we know-and-love from the campaign materials.

My vote, similar to Cald, is to go the IC route. In fact, you could provide and exemplar example to the world that PFO is an interesting place where you can truly experience the River Kingdoms!

I am glad to hear about the Display name. I suggest making it impossible to post UNTIL you have set your Display name.

Just a little update on the Display names for the forums.

You will log in as your user name. Before you post anything to the forums you need to change your display name in your account settings (once it goes live). Otherwise your posts will be defaulted to your login ID.

You do NOT have to do this every time you post, just the initial set up of what you want your display name to be. <3

If I change my display name to Mr. Man and make a few posts then change it to That Guy, will my previous posts under Mr. Man still retain that display name or will they be changed to That Guy?

Good question. I would hope that posts would not have a name change. But honestly there should be an Alias system like these forums.

Goblin Squad Member

GW's general thinking on this topic seems sound. Basically in 30+ years of RPGing I have seen maybe a handful of players who can do evil well. In about the last 15 years of MMOing, I have seen about the same amount who can do it well and a HUGE amount that suck at it to the point of ruining the experience for everyone else.

My sense is that if we want to harness inner motivations, then one should apply for a GM position at GW. I don't see a computer mechanic in an MMO capturing it.
