I was asked to run a rules-lite D&D game for 6-7 people with a classic old school feel. No way I'm going to do this under Pathfinder. I'm looking for a short pre-made adventure under any old-school system which can accommodate a large group and be run over one evening. Help!

I'm not sure how one can consider a game that has an entire monthly product line churning out feats, archetypes, spells and items as "finished", but YMMV.

Yeah, but he would be LE with Chaotic tendencies, so I'm eagerly awaiting Book of the Damned for material. Kill the heretic, eviscerate the unclean. Only through the purging flame of pyres full of witches shall the bliss of purity be achieved.

Honestly, looking at recent RPGs, if the 320 pages 7th Sea second edition costs 59.99 and 400ish pages Star Wars core rulebooks cost 59.95 and the mostly B&W 449 pages Call of Cthulhu 7th ed. costs 54.95, I'm not complaining for a full-color 528 pg book at 59.99 bucks.

I am also pretty sure that the prices of Paizo books are influenced by more things than just the page count. The most important being the ROI given the projected sales.

That is right Traveler 5 was 759. So this would be maybe 2nd biggest?

Starblazer Adventures is over 600 pages (628 IIRC).

Burning Empires is 652 (digest-sized, tho).

I've had to take things in my own hands and play a flexi-sexual albino tiefling Paladin of Shelyn in my friends' Out of Abyss game.

Long white hair. A massive zwiehander called Maria whom he is in platonic love with. An even greater ego and an even greater libido.

Some people are yet to recover from my performance, which was part Sephiroth, part Sterling Mallory Archer and part Dr. Frank 'n' Furter, while all the time adhering to Shelyn's paladin code. As long as somebody was looking, that is.

I wouldn't say that "good aligned ones" are the most common type of PC. 90% of PCs played in my games are Neutral, of which 80% are CN and NN. I'm yet to see a LG character at my table.

I would've rather had guidelines for running a proper Pathfinder game on Earth.

Take Rasputin Must Die and work from there - it has automatic weapons, explosives, flamethrowers, grenades, heck, stats for tanks. You can pretty much do everything using that and Technology Guide, as most of current tech is either advanced versions of early XX century stuff or early versions of future tech described in Tech Guide.

Hi, I'm Gorbacz. 6 million citizens of my country were murdered by Nazis. 3 millions of them were Jewish, 2 million were Polish, one million was everybody else taken together.

Half of my family at grandparent and grand-grand-parent were killed. Some of them died in really ugly way.

An entire culture which used to live right next to mine was eradicated (and whatever survived was finished off by commies in 1968. Thanks, Obama!).

I'm fine discussing Nazi zombies riding dinosaurs. I know there are people who quite aren't.

Depends on the setting, region of the setting, events in the setting and many other factors which render suggestions such as 'goblins are very common' useless.

GM's job is to call such shots. No guide will do that better than him/her.

*Sorry Kanye, but not sorry*

For my theme song
My laser space jeans on
My by any means on
Pardon, I'm getting my scream on
Enter the spacedom
But watch who you bring home
They see a blue man with a raccoon woman
At the top floor they gone come to kill Sky Titan
Middle Bretheda packed in
Came to see me in my blue skin
Number one question they asking
Laser every question you asking!
If I don't get ran out by Triaxans
Here come some conservative Hellknights
Claiming I'm overreacting
Like them lich kids in Eox beach

Gray Maidens? Aren't they AP-specific?

Their introduction was, yes, but they are presumed to remain in the setting after that

** spoiler omitted **

Thing is, I remember reading that adventure paths don't happen until you actually play them (or an AP is explicitly a sequel).

So ... do you have a problem that Gray Maidens are in this book?

The PCs should start getting magic items at the point where you quit this nightmare of a gaming group and join a sensible one.

Legally, nothing prevents you from releasing something under both CUP and other license, as long as they don't collide or are mutually exclusive.

Can I send you the Adventure Path/campaign setting/module I wrote to see if Paizo wants to publish it?

Unfortunately, we cannot legally accept unsolicited submissions of content and thus no one at Paizo can even look at the content of such emails. This is to protect ourselves as well as you and your intellectual property from copyright infringement or other potential legal hazards. If you're interested in writing for Paizo, the best way to get a foot in the door is by taking a look at our Pathfinder Society Quest open call , our annual RPG Superstar talent search contest, or by writing for other publishers and getting in touch with us after earning some publishing credits.
so does that mean as long as we had our own stuff published (project we are working on) and had the OGL We can have our own variation as long as it does not infringe on Pathfinder Lore or Core material? Or should we send it to the quest open call and RPG superstar first?

You can:

- publish stuff (commercially or not) if you follow the OGL and do not step upon Paizo (or anybody elses) intellectual property;
- publish stuff non-commercially if you follow the OGL and Paizo Community Use Policy using some of Paizo's intellectual property;
- besides that, you can try ways of catching Paizo's attention - the RPG Superstar contest is on hiatus, but you could try the Wayfinder fanzine.

My link or the eating bag's explanation?

Gorbacz,

I'm aware of that but I figured since Paizo had the rights to these specific issues on their site...why put it on ANOTHER site?! That kind seems weird to me.

Are you assuming that Paizo put them on DTR? That might not be the case, WotC could do that, as they own the stuff lock, stock and barrel. All Paizo can, as far as I know, is to sell them on their site.

Unless, of course, I am completely mistaken and there were any changes to the previous arrangements.

Ah, the challenges of advanced technology, so elusive!

Wizards of the Coast put up some old Dragon and Dungeon mags they have the rights to (so, no Paizo involved) up on Drivethrurpg.com

I guess they might put the others as well at some point. I am actually curious if they will upload the ones which Paizo didn't get a chance to make PDFs of.

If you need an answer, well, that brimorak is an advanced brimorak with 20 levels of cleric of Lamashtu who specializes in using the Styx to travel the Outer Rifts and go on diplomatic missions for the Queen of Demons. Charon's a great way to add prestige to your trip to visit Mephistopheles.

Also, Charon gives great tours AND cracks jokes like there was no tomorrow.

Nothing new from in previous publications. That's a character we're more or less deliberately choosing to leave vague and mysterious.

We could at least have an illustration for him... =/

Or should I picture him like this.

Axial, you'll do yourself (and everybody, and Crystal in particular) a big favor if you wait for the adventures instead of trying to guess what is Molthune's role in an AP that is *not* about Molthune based on forum posts, artwork and player's guide. At this point you're approaching the "I reject your reality and substitute it for my own" territory and, well, you're not Adam Savage.

Considering that there are only two adventures available, I'm not sure how on earth did you arrive at the conclusion that Molthune ignores Ironfangs for the rest of the AP.

Hi, I'm Gorbacz and I am a lawyer. Whatever I write next is under no circumstances legal advice.

To answer the OP: for most part, private RPG campaigns can use whatever Intellectual Property. Under virtually every jurisdiction, such use of somebody's IP falls under some interpretation of fair use.

To each his own. I found the Shoanti story to be far more disconnected from the gritty urban nature of the AP (Scarwall was disconnected, too, but gets a pass because it's awesome).

Given that Hell's Rebels is one of the most Golarion-lore-heavy APs and it's fully tied to particular country and its history ... I'd say it's something that just won't float. You wouldn't be adjusting an existing AP, you would be writing a new AP from scratch AND rewriting Irrisen.

I don't really see the "most Golarion-lore-heavy AP" in part 1 and 2. From what I've experienced as a player, it's not at all "fully tied to Cheliax". These adventures could easily be set anywhere, especially in any kind of "evil kingdom", such as Irrisen, if you want, I think, without having to change much. The beginning of part 3 would also work mostly anywhere where you can place a decadent city on an off-shore island. I can't say much about later parts, though.

For me, part 3 has been the least fun, so far.

Don't judge the AP until you've played/ran/read it in entirety - much can change between the adventures as written and how GM runs it.

You liked the totally disconnected sidetrek to not-Native Americans who don't play any role in the rest of the AP more? ;-)
