Perfect time for a poem of this sort! Looking forward to the playtest.

Also, please keep making Monster Codices in this vein! Incredibly useful for us DMs.

Love, LOVE the simple class templates!

It seems to me more useful right now in Alpha to actually beef up the Escalations in order to trigger the server overloads that cause problems so they can be studied and corrected.

That is exactly what I wss thinking. Turn it up to 11!! It is Alpha afterall.

1. Well done. This is huge.

2. Good lesson here for some of the people who have been unfairly sour and negative. At the very least, some of the folks here weren't even close to "reasonably patient." GW has been super upfront about the process, and each patch has been a steady climb up. I see no reason to be anything other than very heartened.

Well said.

Goblin Squad Member

Looking forward to it!

I have been hesitant to purchase the Miscellany options (Dungeon, Wilderness, Urban) because I already have a majority of the PDFs, but ENDZ's reviews (as usual) have begun to persuade me to obtain the book versions.

The only place I have come across anyone is in towns, mainly TK. For 3 days I have been looking for someone out and about with no luck.

To me this sounds about right. I don't want the wilderness to be teeming with other players.

I like the smaller population/density, and if it means we have to work together more often then that is a plus.

Best this sort of thing happens in alpha testing so they can determine its cause and plan for fixes so this doesn't happen during the paid period.

Absolutely.

Very cool idea! Looking forward to giving them a whirl!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Very cool!

Goblin Squad Member

Sounds like a good decision all the way around

Goblin Squad Member

Partial threadjack ....

I find this kind of thinking interesting, especially in light of how many gamers across the internet gnash their teeth when a publisher (e.g. Atari) "makes" the development team do things that are absolutely abhorrent, at least to said teeth-gnashing gamers.

Now, we are roughly in the spot of the publishers .... Interesting.

... I'm very puzzled as to why these basic graphics are so resource intensive.

Ultimately, I think the answer is simply that the Gobinworks team hasn't had enough time to polish and optimize them. Right now, Mike Hines has an air mattress in his office so he can spend every waking moment working on fleshing out the map before Early Enrollment. They just don't have the manpower to polish and optimize the animations in parallel with that effort.

I have no doubt that a great many players will look at the state of PFO when Early Enrollment begins and decide it's not for them. I know a number of my friends have already made that decision. As much as some folks might want it to be, though, Early Enrollment is not Release. It's an unfinished game, and that's inevitably going to show.

The folks who come in at Early Enrollment should be prepared for that.

Right on the money.

I get the sense that the recent round of Alphas forgot it was still an Alpha. I suppose that is understandable, but come on folks.

I don't think they plan to add one, either.
More than that, they specifically plan not to add one.

Thank goodness for that! I really hope they stick to their guns on this point.

Goblin Squad Member

I appreciate the delays. It tells me they want to do a good job and they are willing to make tough decisions despite pressure from customers.

Probably took a lot longer to get the tooltips, that many were screaming for, included in the client ;)

Goblin Squad Member

I wonder if an experienced Alpha could offer a perspective on the new updates? Thanks.

short answer: 1 2 & 3 are in there. We're ready for build 8's cold start. Working in full groups with crafters IN group is the way to win.

4 requires player looting, & that needs to come after encumbrance, which needs to come after banking/storage.

Emphasis mine. I think this is really important. When we talk about what feels right, we should always keep in mind that PFO isn't meant to be a solo game.

Oh I forgot ... Thumbs Up to the AP fiction!!! =)

I have to say I appreciate this politicking, and those that have the gumption to put it out in the open. While I don't care for it when it takes a turn towards the ad hominem attacks, I think it bodes well for a vibrant and dynamic community.

Owen, thank you for writing this blog!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

I'm interested to see where they go with this.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Looking forward to it!

Goblin Squad Member

I prefer to wait for the full map and companies, etc. but I also am confident that Ryan will make the right decision for the health of the project.

Goblin Squad Member

Thanks for the update! I appreciate the continued transparency and the willingness to make the tough decisions in order to facilitate the game's vision.

Given the outcry over something like tooltips, I'd say we have a long haul ahead of us as a community :)

Goblin Squad Member

RUSH ftw!

Goblin Squad Member

I am all for tooltips that help us play, but it is really low-hanging fruit. I hope these sorts of things do not take too much time away from really challenging stuff

Goblin Squad Member

I hope that once you see the truth that you make an equally loud statement whereby you feast on crow ... yeesh.

Goblin Squad Member

I appreciate the info from Alpha players as gives the rest of us a glimpse into the game we are waiting on. But I do hope that you are posting this on the alpha forums and engaging the developers as an Alpha player.

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.

Goblin Squad Member

Sounds like a pretty cool experience, Thod!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

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.

Goblin Squad Member

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.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

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 :)
