On the point of Radovan & Jeggare, I'd like them to actualy get home - It'd be really good to see them returning to Cheliaxian society. Plus I'd love a full novel Urban investigation story from them at their original point of Fantasy Sherlokc & Holmes...
The street date at some point was the 23rd, but it got pushed back. It's possible that the stores who are selling didn't notice the change. Don't always attribute to Malice what could be down to simple incompetence
As far as I can tell from several years of subscriptions being international doesn't put you to the end.
This always happens whilst the spawn is happening. One part of the system says'october subs have been generated' but another says 'your subs aren't generated yet, to the next subscription with you!'
Once the auth spawn fully completes, everything fixes itself and all is good with the world for you.
For setting stuff for Runelords, you want the Varisia players book, Magnimar campaign setting, classic monsters revisited, and lost Kingdoms.
Lost cities has some stuff related to the campaign, but it presumes that the last module has happened.
I would be shocked if one of them (probably the huge) didn't look like this
Actually China did it too
im glad they are caught up to the current adventure path. these sets should release with book 1 each time
With book one is incredibly difficult. To be honest, getting it to line up with the end of the AP is still quite difficult due to the lead time of mini design. The adventures are finalised about 3 months before release, whilst art to be used for the minis needs to be around about 6 months before.
I remember JJ saying that there were several things they put in here specifically because of Mikase's posts.
Maybe lack of announcements means that Pathfinder 2 is next and they are just waiting for Gencon to reveal it!
No, the reason for a lack of announcements is because there's a set point when they announce the books, the first of which is only two weeks away
Second Darkness happening is probably the most damaging scenario. To quote from Descent into Midnight that I happened to finish reading today, if Alkevrah wins:
"the falling star strikes true and destroys Kyonin... And many of the neighbouring nations. The darkness created by the explosion as ash is hurled into the sky blots out the sun for months, triggering a terrible death of plant life and animal life across Golarion"
Effectively, the majority of people still alive a year later will be those with acess to create food and water. Second darkness isn't as massive a disaster as the first, but that's only because First Darkness is an event that by all rights should have turned Golarion into a lifeless hulk.

James already mentioned the Succubus elsewhere. Between that and Champions of Purity, I think Mikase might have gone for a long lie down...

Man! Dave is really cranking them out! So, the real question: Will this be out in time for GenCon?
Unless something gets messed up it'll be out at Gencon.

Wow, that map is lovely!
I think this suffers from trying to fit the entire dungeon into one fight. It would have fit the aim better if the Cocktail fight had been one section of the place, with the rest of the crossing described partially, to give us a flavour of the place.
Still, Given that this is the sixth encounter I've read and I've only seen one I'm definately voting for, Pedro has a good chance of my vote!
Didn't know that. Would prefer having Troglodyte in there with the Xulgath in parenthesis so we know what it is.
I'm going to make a guess that Troglodyte as stinky lizard creature is an style only available under the OGL, which means that they couldn't use Troglodyte as the name of the mini, in the same way this set has a Wrath Demon instead of a Vrock.
The Midgard Minature Kickstarter has a Rven Mage mini available, which should do well as a Tengu. It also has an alternate hand sprue available, to customise it's loadout
When I'm running an AP, I don't track XPs,I just level the PCs around the point the books say you should.
On a more general point, ALL XP should be done on a psrty level, and should be consistent even if a player misses a session. It's massively simpler to do it that way.
Blame Dragons I believe...

If I were to guess, they're holding those two until the unholy combination of an AP in the area and the respective people are free to write a part...
The beta was an exception I believe. Getting a print copy would delay the Playtest until January, which with a print deadline of April -May would mean an incredibly tight period to do the Playtest, analyse it, adapt the material and get it through editing, layout etc. I don't think it's feasible to do a print Playtest for anything short of pathfinder 2 towards the end of the decade, and possibly not even then...
... and I don't think Mazra's post was directed at you - it was a general comment reacting to Lisa's statement about them looking at it - Mazra wants Wizkids to be careful not to have some of the problems that the Wizards minis did in trying to solve the comparitvely minor base problems.
Yet another Wayne "Little Feet" Reynolds cover. Too bad.
Be ready for some disappointment then - the entrire AP will be Wayne's covers.
From what we've heard, it will default to Taldor, but it will be reasonably possible just to cross out the place names and choose ones suiting where you want to start.
There wasn't a Paizo keynote. ( by definition there can only be one of them...) Most of Paizo's info came out in the future of Paizo seminar, a lot of which was reported on Dale McCoy Jr's twitter feed.
RPG line: NPC Codex in October, Ultimate Campaigns in Spring, Mythic Adventures next Gencon.
APs: Shattered Star now, then Reign of Winter, then Demon Blight Crusade.
Campaign Setting: Angel based equivalent of the Book of the damned, then something on Castles, something on Dragons & the Reign of Winter map pack.
Player Companions: dungeoneering book (think this is announced), Champions of Purity, Kobolds of Golarion, Dragon Hunters, Crusaders handbook, demon hunters handbook
Modules nothing direct, but mentioned that they're going to experiment with length.
Yay! The preview is up before I go to bed!
It's also great that Mark Moreland's avatar will soon be swarming over us. Any of the other staff due/already have a mini? (please say T-Rex...)
I am pretty sure I can write the sidebar right here, based on comments from the staff.
Rename Sheila Heidmarch to something else, portray her as an independent patron employing people to get the Sihedron elements. Ignore the fame/ prestige bit at the end of the adventure.
As for epic saving the world stuff, it wouldn't shock me if there's a group/ groups of NPCs trying to collect the Sihedron for nefarious purposes, which could lead to some interesting dilemmas.
Just what are these celestial totems?
Totems are a type of rage power introduced in the APG, which had a fiendish option, but no celestial one. Mikase has been on a solo quest since to get the celestial version published

So, no Mythic Rules then?
Not yet, but the Gencon book wasn't announced, and if we were going to get it, it would be for Gencon
Also Ultimate Campaigns doesn't sound like it'd need much if any public playtesting, which frees up time to do a significant Playtest if it is a major expansion like Mythic
I suspect it's mostly a case of adapting from the same source
The kick starter doesn't stop excepting pledges, or charge until the end of the 30 day window, so you shouldn't worry too much...
Just a quick question - For Heroes & Monsters you set a Case list price of less than what 64 standard and 12 large boosters would cost individually. This meant that those of us who had Pathfinder Advantage would then take another 15% off the price. For this, you've listed it as the price of buying 32 boosters, then put it at a discounted price for the case, which means that Pathfinder Advantage can't then be applied.
I was just wondering why it was chosen to do the pricing this way round?
Commiserations to the other three, especially Tom - it was really close between you and Mike for me, but I'm sure there will be lots of opportunities for you to do other stuff for Paizo
Last Year's Round 4 is probably the best place to look at for what maps need to be, basically the priority is that it is clear enough to show all the details that a professional cartographer would need, and is interesting - not just a series of 20'x20' rooms.
Anything new you can show us paizo? Please with goblin gibblets on top we are all very anxious "twitches" .
Saturday night will probably be illuminating...
