Congratulations! The decision to get married was the best joint decision I (we) ever made. I hope that you both find the same happiness, nay, more happiness than my wife and I have!

I'll go on the record as requesting paper minis for this module as well. If you make them I WILL buy them because I will be running this module as part of my Carrion Crown Campaign.

Also, I think that this was the most fun module I have read! It will be a challenge to run, because it seems as though a lot was left up to the DM due to word count, but that just gives me room to flex my evil creative muscles!!

I reread this whole story last night. I was particularly struck by Radovan's comment, "The boss is better with the metaphors." Followed by Radovan's narration, "It was all red velvet cushions, tiger-hide couches, chandeliers like all the stars fell down at once, carpet so thick you needed a machete to cross the room, with all the knobs and fixtures made of gold-plated gold."

Really? Is the boss really better at metaphors? Or does Radovan just have a low self esteem when it comes to his level of education?

I'm a pretty intelligent guy, but if I spent all my time with a genius with a photographic memory, I'd esteem my education pretty low too.

On a completely different note, I have read this story three or four times. I laugh out loud about "Monkey Plucks the Peaches," and "shaking the tree," every time. I cannot read this chapter while putting the baby to bed because I wake her up. This has happened with both my daughters. I blame Dave Gross for any mental scarring my daughters have from being rudely awoken by their father guffawing and dropping the iPod touch.

Well, I haven't read Dagger of Trust, Blood of The City, or Nightglass yet, so no reviews there. And Thank You for writing the books! A brief review is the least I could do.

Dagger of Trust: A great, fun read.

Blood of the City: Still one of my favorites in the line. It's the one I've reread at least twice now.

Nightglass: I'm rereading this one now in preparation for reading Nightblade, and I'm being reminded of why I didn't like it the first time around. Mostly, I just don't like Nidal. I'm not going to say more than that here because you'll have your own opinion.

Edit: Yes, I need to write more reviews. I've READ all of the Tales, I need to REVIEW them. I was rereading all of Dave Gross' books and writing reviews, but then I got sidetracked by Dagger of Trust and Crusader's Road and (now) Nightblade. Maybe I'll set Nightglass down for a bit and finish up those Gross books...

I would recommend that you check out the reviews Here. You can also read the reviews for each of the 101 spells products (o-level through 9th level) that Rite published since 1001 Spells is simply a compilation of those products.

Endzeitgeist is one of the most highly respected reviewers in the industry (and a nice guy to boot) and he has given all the 101 Spells products 4.5 to 5 star reviews.

Reputation-wise: Rite Publishing is considered one of the better companies regarding balance in their products (up there with Rogue Genius Games, Raging Swan Press and Legendary Games).

Here's my question for you: How long have you been GM'ing? Is this your first shot GMing Pathfinder? If so, you have already got a TON of options for your players, do they really NEED another 1010 spells as potential options for them? Do you want to have to keep track of another book?

I play in a game with only the Core and APG allowed and we have enough to keep us having fun for a while.

I GM a game with all options open (except the summoner) including 3PP material (if I get to read it over first and I get a copy if we're using it). We all have a lot of fun in my game too.

Why is Durkon in such a hurry? He is THAT concerned about destroying the Dwarves?


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Modules, Tales Subscriber

Oof! Looking at that reminds me how long it has been since I updated any of it. I have some work to do.

Also, that's all in internal chronological order. I think that Javin Swifthand is looking to have them listed in published order.

Honestly, to find the most recent Web Fiction, it's easiest to go to The Paizo Blog and scroll down until you see Pathfinder Tales.

I am enjoying the story so far!

Fixed! :-)

Awww! I have secretly been wishing that Pathfinder Tales would start numbering all chapters with the Fibonacci Sequence!

For a moment, I thought my dreams had come true. Now my hopes and dreams are smashed. :(

I'm going to go over here and look at cross sections on Nautilus shells now...

As a GM, you can have the BBEG pour this all over the floor of a hallway or room, then place a low grid over it. The Grid keep the powder from getting carried away by walking feet.

When the adventurers come a-calling, he can pull a cord to pour enough water to water into the hallway to put one gallon in each 5 foot square. Instant difficult terrain!

Hmmm... Is he going to get up and attack?
-Will Marra take up the mission he failed to complete?

-What class is Marra? I'm guessing Ranger, but she could be a fighter. There's really not enough information yet to judge.

I really like that art of Redfang! He looks JUST like I envisioned him as I read Reign of Stars.


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Modules, Tales Subscriber

Short answer is: Yes.

Longer answer: There will be when they get a slug of it done. My impression is that they work on this here and there during slow days, wait for a bunch to be ready to post and then drop them all at once.

Either that, or they put it off until they have enough to make it worthwhile to work on and then, POW drop a whole bunch on us. I usually pick them up during the Late December/Early January 10% off sale.

I have a couple thoughts/questions based upon the images.

-I noticed that the cards are numbered.

--Looks like the bottom center info is giving the page number in the corresponding rulebook, but I don't have my CRB handy to check that.

--There is a smaller number in the sort of bottom left corner. Is this the number referred to in the text of the initiative card? If so, it might be useful to have that number near the top of the card so that if we store the cards in a card box, we can see the number as we flip through.

I'm still cogitating on this one. Do I buy it or not? I'll figure it out by November. That budget is still a full month away!

I just noticed that the families in the strip seem to wear color-coded clothing.

-Durkon and his mother in blue
-His cousin's family in purple

I'll be watching for further evidence of this. I could be wrong. It's happened before. A lot. :)

Now that PaizoCon and GenCon are over, I thought it would be an appropriate time to poke this topic. I'd love to get a pdf copy of the updated rulebook!

I found an inexpensive storage option for my Harrow Deck. In the office supply section at my local CVS, I found a soft plastic case for carrying 3X5 notecards. It holds the deck, and all the extra cards and the rulebook nicely.

I'm not sure if it will hold the whole deck with the cards sleeved. I have not bought sleeves for my Harrow Deck yet.

I think that Deagan is caught in a dilemma. On one hand, he loves Brea, and cannot lift a hand to harm her himself. On the other hand, he's not supposed to be involved with her and he needs her to go away forever so that:
a: he is no longer tempted to continue their relationship
b: the Kalistocracy doesn't find out about her and strip him of all his power and wealth

Further complicating things is the contract between them. She is too honorable to break the contract. He has to honor the contract or be stripped of all his power and wealth by the Kalistocracy for breach of contract.

He has tried everything he can to get rid of her within the contract. On one hand, I feel a little bit bad for him. On the other hand, he's a bastard who ordered the deaths of innocents, then sent loyal soldiers into an ambush all to rid himself of an inconvenient truth.

Amateur Predictions:
I don't think he will be killed in the final chapter. I think that his comeuppance will be that the Kalistocracy will discover his failing and strip him of everything.

We used to do Pathfinder Tales bookmarks as promotional items, but it's been a while. I'll see if it's something we can start up again.

It has been a while. I don't remember seeing any bookmarks, and I've been a Tales Subscriber since Plague of Shadows.

Regardless, I would use a bookmark if it came with my shipment.

When I'm reading a book, I always take a subscription card out of a magazine, cut it in half and use one half for a bookmark. It does a fine job marking my place!

I get where you are going, though. It is nice to have a nice bookmark sometimes.

I jumped into the middle of a Shackled City Campaign. We got to level 16 retired the campaign, rolled up new characters and played Red Hand of Doom. I don't remember what adventure we played to get into Red Hand of Doom, though.


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Modules, Tales Subscriber

I'm thinking that when we arrive at the Dwarven Lands, we are going to meet Durkon's Chaotic cousin.

I'll be interested to see in what capacity.

Gah! Another product I must buy! At least I can wait a bit before getting this one.

I like the new cover!


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Modules, Tales Subscriber

The Worldwound Gambit is an Ocean's 11 style heist. The leader of the group is a dude, but the party is a good mix of male and female characters. The party Rougue is a halfling who is a traps specialist. She is brilliant with traps, but not so much with people.

The book is written in Present-tense which bugs some folks, but I think it adds to mystery and tension.

A web comic with a strong female protagonist is Order of the Stick by Rich Burlew. It started as a spoof on the D&D 3.5 rules, but has morphed into a deep (and funny) fantasy story that uses those rules as a backdrop (sort of). It's ongoing, but there is a lot to read. Haley, the rougue doesn't start out as a really strong female lead, but she gets there!


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Modules, Tales Subscriber

It's exciting to see another portrayal of a Pathfinder Druid, and to see them in the lush, natural environment of the Mwangi Expanse. Excellent!

Linked: Tabeltop Gaming Audio on Kickstarter

This looks interesting, I will chat with my gaming goup about possibly splitting the cost on it for the benefit of the group.

I noticed with issue #3 that the covers are all one big image of our characters fighting goblins on a boat. I was going to try to create my own City of Secrets Wallpaper by joining the images together, but I ran into some difficulties. The art from the store is not all at same size/resolution and there are gaps between the cover images.

Might we someday get a pretty City of Secrets Wallpaper with the entire picture all lined up? Pretty please with sugar on top?

RISE THREAD, RISE FROM THE GRAVE!

*cough, cough*

Sorry about that. I had a frog in my throat. I know this is a bit of thread necromancy, but if anyone is looking for a really fancy, solid wood dice tower, there is a kickstarter going on where you can get one. It is the Hrothgar's Hoard Dice Tower Kickstarter, and they have ALL KINDS of fancy and expensive options, as well as some slightly more affordable ones.
NOTE: these are not cheap plastic dice towers, and you are paying to get something that's solid quality wood. You can also pay a little extra to get the baffles padded with felt to dampen the rolling noise, or to decorate the dice tower, or both.

Turning all the liquid in a person's body into sand is... interesting. Each cell is essentially filled with water, so each cell would become a tiny grain of sand wrapped in a a very thin membrane. Would all the cells then fall apart, creating a pile of fine sand, clothes, hair and a very sandy skeleton?

I am actually interested to read this book now. As soon as I finish re-reading City of the Fallen Sky.

Can anyone suggest a card sleeve for these cards?

Fantasy Flight Games makes a Tarot Sized card sleeve that matches the dimensions that Liz gives in a post further up. Please note, I have not bought or tried these out. Also, one package is 50 sleeves, so I hope you can find a place that will also sell you some individual ones!

Please let us know what you find and if it works!

As it turned out, Sara Marie and Bulmahn combined their powers and managed to summon an empty plane from Chicago to Indy to fetch us.

I'm not actually making this up. The flight attendant was like, "Wow, we were scheduled to go somewhere else, but we got the plane unloaded and they told us to take the empty plane to Indianapolis."

Do not mess with Dire Care Bears or Bull Men.

Yes, Buhlman's prayers to Lord Asmodeus were answered, and no wonder; he sacrificed three stuffed bears (that he stole from passing children), two large bags of candy (likewise) and a full set of Schneider's favorite childhood pajamas! To augment the effects of this unholy summoning ritual, Buhlman conducted it in the ladies' room, claiming to be "a bear-hating bearded lady from Sweden".

I swear, this is how it happened.

It's funny, but something similar to this happened in Clinton J. Boomer's book, The Hole Behind Midnight. Really good book! But not for little kids. The language and content are at the NC-17 end of R.

Aventyr:
Looks like an Aventyr book in the behind the cat. I believe Aventyr is AAW's campaign setting. Are you putting together a setting book in which (among other adventures0 Rise of the Drown and Snow White take place?

What's a Veranthea Codex? Pathfinder Redefined? interesting...

For Large size swarms I agree that they can't arbitrarily take up any 4 squares they want, and I think this is intentional (otherwise they would be more dangerous).

Please note that they can still occupy areas already occupied by other creatures or objects and any large creature can still squeeze into a 5' wide hallway.

Yep! Considerably more dangerous.

My question comes from the fact that I've always seen swarms played as completely shapeable—any 4 squares you want as long as they're contiguous. And when swarms show up in published adventures the tactics text sometimes seems to assume that they're shapeable. And in the Bestiary pawn box, you don't have a Large-size swarm but four small-sized icons ... which seems to suggest shapeable.

So maybe all of these indicators are incorrect and swarms aren't supposed to be shapeable, but it took me by surprise!

All of the swarm minis produced by Wizkids were small sized. Beyond that, I'll be interested to see what comes of this conversation.

I'm glad to hear that you are okay!

I am currently running Carrion Crown. My group just finished the first level of the prison. I have been running Syrinscape (free) in the background. It came with 2 soundsets, and the Creepy Forest one has been great for atmosphere!

We use minis on a battlemat and it works just fine for us.

We have found the haunts to be fairly effective, but we don't have a cleric in the group, so everything supernatural is just a touch harder!


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Modules, Tales Subscriber

It may be a little longer than you are looking for, but with a little changing of the background and reskinning, you could make Crypt of the Everflame an old forgotten pharoah's tomb.

If you want to creep your players out, you might be able to fit in Feast of Ravenmoor. Just make it a village situated way up in the marshes along the banks of the Crook River.

For both of these, you could just leave out a few encounters to shorten them up.

The hardcover is using the Carlos Gomez cover from Issue #1. I think that's a great cover, and thematically appropriate for a hardcover compilation in that the book tends to be Goblins telling their stories, and that's what we see on the cover.

I like that the Paizo.com cover shows us goblins from the stories themselves. I'm going to have to think a bit to decide which cover I like more.

Edit: Sudden realization: The Carlos Gomez cover will be INSIDE the book too, I'm not sure that the Paizo.com exclusive hardcover image will be inside the book as well. That may make the decision for me...


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Modules, Tales Subscriber

The Paizo.com cover has been announced/released. It's okay. I think I like the non-Paizo.com cover more.

I know that they tend to be referencing other pop-culture stuff with the Paizo.com covers, is this a reference to a classic X-Men cover?

It's a shame; if it were actual physical stuff, I'd be all over it, but I can't justify spending all that for PDFs.

But, you guys have been successful without my help, so congratulations :)

Sort of... The add ons are all pdf, but the physical book is, well, a physical book of the adventure. Most of the stretch goals are adding content to the book itself (more art, better maps).

So, if you want to get an exciting fairy tale themed adventure, you can jump in for the book with a $65 pledge. If that's not in your budget, I understand that too!

Yes, you are reading it correctly.

The Snow White Dice are the only physical add-on to date.

The following are the PDF add-ons that have been announced:
-Jack and the Beanstalk mini adventure (unlocked)
-GM screen (unlocked)
-Assassin's Breach game (unlocked)
-Original Snow White parts I and II (unlocked)
-discounted copy of Rise of the Drow (unlocked)
-Player's Guide (still locked)
-Heir and Back Again adventure (locked)

However, many of the strech goals have been adding artwork and maps that the original adventure lacked, so they are adding to the page count of the physical book without adding cost to the backers.

Hey folks this kickstarter is funded and nearly over, but there's still time to support it!

-The reviews for the adventure are great
-The printer that AAW used for Rise of the Drow hardcover is the same one that Paizo uses for their hardcovers. All that Paizo hardcover quality will be in this book!
-If you want to pick up a copy of Rise of the Drow, you can get it as a kickstarter supporter for $35 instead of the $41.99 retail price. If you are thinking that you want to run a Drow themed campaign at some point, you want to pick up Rise of the Drow!
-The add ons are a lot of fun, if you want add ons!

-Most of all: There are lots of big stretch goals planned that I want, but I can't fund the project enough on my own to get to them, so I need your help to get the stuff I want.

Was that last one selfish? I think it was. Maybe I should delete that last point? Too late, I already hit submit.
