One thing is for sure, whether you are an old school man-bearded grognard or a transgender pansexual 20-something, Paizo wants your business and money.
Or are you looking for them to exclude a section of their playerbase Gorbz?
As for on topic, this was the AP that caused one of my friends to finally dip his toe into AP buying, though he hasnt started it yet as we are knee-deep in a campaign another DM is running.
Good man, you beat me to it. In case you need the rest of the material, here's the link to the forum post where you can get all 3 books, including the book of darklords and the monster book.
If I were a betting man, I'd put it on a GenCon 2017 release of the Curse of the Crimson Throne anniversary edition hardback. That will be the 15 year anniversary of Paizo as a company and the 10 year anniversary of the Adventure Paths, and it will have been 5 full years since Runelords AE was released.
You spoony bard.
I read about half of the first page before I noticed this thread is 4 years old. It was almost comical too because one of the first few comments is some guy saying he was checking E3 for news, which just started today, and then some other guy was pining over a Baldurs Gate style game, to which I was going to reply "dude, have you been under a rock, check out Pillars of Eternity!"...and then I noticed the date, lol.
Anyway, so Paizo, what is going on with that Obsidian deal*, hmm?
I'm going to laugh when Vic replies with the exact same thing he said 4 years ago.
*Other than the virtual card game.
Hopefully one of these can beat Saint Kargath in cool factor, or come close to Lord Soth. Ungarato has some cool to him based on history bits posted so far. Looking forward to this article.
The original Death Knight, causer (or at least non-preventer) of the Cataclysm that befell his world, owner of his own castle of horror on Krynn, and a Dark Lord with his own Domain of Dread in Ravenloft...thats gonna be tough to beat. ;)
Even Arthas is number 2 on the all time Death Knight list behind Soth, and I loved Warcraft 3 something fierce.
Looking at the different options for the wizards and cavaliers and other classes, in a DL world are the PRCs even necessary?
I really like the Knight prestige classes from Knightly Order of Ansalon, but I wouldnt necessarily take them on every single Knight character I played. I would probably take Sword Knight (clerist) on a clerical focused Knight, and theres a good chance I would take the Rose Knight on top of the Cavalier class, but I most likely wouldnt with a Paladin.
The way I see it is that the PrC isnt needed to achieve the heights in the organizations, but its another option for those who are members of said groups to utilize if they so desire.
Basically a Fighter 20 could be Lord of the Crown as easily as a Fighter 10/Crown Knight 10, as long as he has roleplayed it properly.
Cap: Shield Champion Brawler, maybe a couple levels in Paladin.
Iron Man: Aegis
Hulk: Hulk has two separate character sheets, one as Bruce Banner, an Alchemist, and one as the Hulk, a Wild Rager Barbarian. He only has access to his current set of abilities in a given form, the others are locked out to him.
For the Stalker I'd rather them have a good base Reflex and either get rid of the Wis to Ref ability, or swap it out for something else.
For the Warlord it's probably less needed overall, but I liked it for uniformity and symmetry between the classes.
If you decided to implement it, it would work out like this:
Warder: Fort and Will, Int to Ref
Way to roleplay your character, you've got the quintessential annoying Kender nailed!
Whenever we do gestalt we play it similar AD&D multiclassing, in that you take two classes at level 1 and those are locked in for the rest of that characters career, no multiclassing, no PrCs. This isn't as big of a deal in Pathfinder as it was in 3.5 but it still makes things simpler and neater.
Im running a normal campaign in Rise of the Runelords right now, but I'll be doing a gestalt campaign when I get around to running Rappan Athuk. One of my buddies is already itching to play a Soulknife/Stalker.
I actually don't mind Fox keeping ahold of the X-License, that universe is large enough that it can support multiple movies and characters interwoven into a seamless whole.
I want the F4 IP back at Marvel not so much for the F4 themselves, but for Doom, Galactus, Silver Surfer, and all the rest that goes along with it. Doom and Galactus will make for excellent MCU villains for future Avengers movies.
Then we have 3 studios going full steam:
Warner Bros: All of DC
That sounds about perfect to me.
Now we just need the grim-dark Fantastic Four reboot to bomb, so Marvel can buy back that property (or at least Doctor Doom and the cosmic elements).
This is the great hope. And it is entirely possible.
Sadly, what Marvel will never get back is X-Men, Fox will keep that to themselves until kingdom come.
It is an expenditure of resources, but I like and prefer the Dex focused build, due to all the other synergies Dex has with the class and style.
I assume you mean non-Paizo instead of non-core, seeing as the Slayer isn't "core" (as in core rulebook only). Nevertheless if you guys are vehemently anti-3rd party he can still do this with Slashing Grace (from the same book the Slayer class is found in) and proficiency in sawtooth sabers. Basically something like this:
1: Weapon Finesse, EWP: Sawtooth Saber
This achieves the exact same thing I posted above, it just takes longer and requires more feats. Level 5 is when this grows into fruition and will be solid for the rest of the campaign. (I'm assuming that he took trapfinding as his level 2 slayer talent based on what you said in the OP)
Looks like you pretty much got it all. Tome of Horrors should be in the GM category (it is a bestiary, a giant one), Akashic Mysteries should be in the class options category (it's basically the same type of book that Ultimate Psionics and Path of War are, being the Pathfinder version of the Incarnum subsystem), and you left Rappan Athuk and Slumbering Tsar of the adventures list. Other than that, looks bueno.
I'm somewhat surprised that no one else mentioned it since you said you were looking for more tech options (unless I missed it), but Age of Electrotech might be just what you are looking for. It is by the company that did the Pathfinder update to Pact Magic.
Other than that I can only echo what everyone else has said.
For player options: Ultimate Psionics, Path of War, Deep Magic are all great.
