I noticed today that in each issue, the Pathfinder's Journal is written by a different author. That raises some questions for me.

1: Is this the new format for the Pathfinder's Journal? Or are you trying out something new?

2: Is it one novella with multiple authors (like Prodigal Sons) or 6 separate short stories that relate to the issue at hand?

I was just glad to get an update. I'd prefer more frequent updates, even ife it was just a once a month, "Still working" update. There are two Kickstarters (other than this one) that I supported over a year ago that have not fulfilled yet. However, I still get a monthly poke from them that progress IS being made and I will eventually get my books. That's enough to keep me happy and interested.

I'm really looking forward to getting this book. I backed for the Gold Foil edition and, well, it's going to be a REALLY BIG book!

So I just read this whole thing over lunch. I really liked it. I had a few issues with what the main character was (class et al.), but overall I liked the characters, setting, and story. For the download, does it have pathfinder RPG stuff in it or is it just a compilation of the story as a PDF?

I'll give you a few answers and hope that I am answering your question.

The download of Faithful Servants is simply an ePub of what is available for free in the Web Fiction.

The download of Death's Heretic includes a Pdf and ePub of the novel. There is no RPG gaming material included in the novel.

In general, there is not any PFRPG material included in ANY of the fiction. The notable exception to this is Pathfinder Comics, which has some gaming material in each issue.

There's a couple modules that are in your requested level range.

They are:

1: The Harrowing: This one is probably the best fit. It is for 9th level characters, it takes place in a weird demiplane based on the Harrow Deck. You'll want to have a Deluxe Harrow Deck while you are running the adventure because it figures so heavily in the subject matter. The Harrow is tied to Varisian culture and since it takes place INSIDE a Harrow Deck, you can have that deck turn up in a Varisian Caravan in Varisia.

2:Realm of the Fellnight Queen: This module is for a 7th level party and takes place in the woods outside of a small town. Officially it is set in Andoran, but you could just change the town's name and put it in the middle of the woods in Varisia. It's got fey, fey and more fey!

3: Gallery of Evil is a 3.5 adventure for 8th level characters published by Paizo. This one is urban and pits them against murderous paintings. I have not played or run this one. I just found it...

4: Reign of Ruin: This is a wilderness adventure for 7th level characters. I have not read it, but it is from Jon Brazer Enterprises. Everything that I have bought from them I have liked. They are known for producing very well balanced products.

There are a lot of Pathfinder Society Scenarios in your requested level range, but I don't play Society and I have not bought any scenarios, so I don't know much about any of them. You could try hunting around using the Adventure Finder to see what else might fit your need.

Something bad happens—crop fails, some gaffer bites it, a member of the city guard gets killed—guess who gets blamed? Doesn't matter that I saved their skins a hundred times, oh no! It's a worldview thing, see? Once you dehumanize someone, they become the source of every bad thing. Doesn't matter what you do, it's what you are, and eventually they always turn on you."

This is the most important paragraph in this story.

I am really enjoying this tale!

Just use Tolkein's Elven script and language. The reasons to do this are manifold:

1: It's already there for the using.
2: It's instantly recognizable as Elvish for the majority of people who play this game.
3: It's really pretty.
4: It sounds really pretty.

I finished reading this book this morning. For no reason, I woke up at 3:30AM. I got children back into bed that ALSO woke up at 3:30AM for no particular reason. When I couldn't get back to sleep, I read until the book was done 2 minutes before my alarm went off.

This book was very good. I will work on getting a review written and posted tonight. Well done, Mr. Chris Jackson. Well done.

The Wurst of Grimtooth's Traps is 224 pages, per Liz Courts' comment in the comments.

Grimtooth's Ultimate Traps Collection is going to be ~460 pages long. If you want to spend more and stretch goals are met, some versions will be ~600 pages long.

What sort of sets in the line of Summon Monster/Nature's Ally are you thinking of?

I don't think that we will see a Paper Minis Subscription because these are not Paizo products, they are licsensed products. My understanding is that you would need to subscribe to the company that is licsensed to make Paper Minis.

I still want to see a Carrion Crown set of minis.

Off the top of my head: the variant summon monster lists, improved familiars, animal companions, and eidolons.

Pathfinder Battles is a licensed product that offers a subscription handled via Paizo's website. As the company(?) "Pathfinder Paper Minis" has no apparent web presence outside of their store on Paizo's website, nor does their product appear to be offered anywhere other than Paizo's website, and the person soliciting suggestions for new products in the line at the start of this thread is also involved with Paizo's website, I thought it couldn't hurt to ask.

Good point about Pathfinder Battles!

Variant Summon Monster Lists: Maybe if you posted the list, someone will make it? It never hurts to do some of the initial footwork to encourage an artist to make a product.

Animal Companions: Some of the animal companions are in the Summon Monster/Nature's Ally Sets. Maybe we could convince Callous Jack to make a set of the Animal Companions that are not in those two products?

Improved Familiars: This is just the sort of thing that Paper Minis are GREAT for! A metal mini of an improved familiar creature might be a tough sell, but paper minis have a lower price point. I agree on this one!

Eidolons: That's a tough one since an eidolon looks like whatever you want it to look like...

Bit of a thread rez here, but some questions.

Is there any word on completion dates for the older AP sets that are in progress? Is there a chance that there will be a change in artists on those sets just to get them done?

Any chance of seeing more sets like the Summon Monster/Nature's Ally ones? Or a follow up set(s) that includes the monsters from customized summoning lists (from either worshiping a specific deity or the Summon Good/Neutral/Evil Monster feats)?

While I know this is probably stepping on the toes of the Pawns line, what are the chances of seeing a Bestiary (1/2/3/4) paper minis set?

Lastly, is there a chance of being able to subscribe to the Paper Minis line?

Thanks.

Ha! The Duodenum is another great transition. The pancreas is, hands down, the funniest organ in the body. If you doubt me, do a quick web search for "Weird Al Pancreas" and listen to the song that comes up.

Wow! It sounds like this will be good year for FGG! I'll keep an eye on the Kickstarters and will likely support them on some level. This past year, I had a couple Kickstarters (one was for FGG) where I had to drop my pledge to the $5 range so I could follow it, but didn't get any products from them.

I have been enjoying reading Slumbering Tsar. It is a HUGE tome and quite devious most of the time.

From what's listed on the Wiki, it sounds like the Clearing Moon is not a set monthly "moon," but is one that is entirely dependent upon another natural phenomena: the ending of the rainy season.

It's like our Blue Moon: The second full moon in a single month.

Another RL example (sort of) is Easter. Easter is Celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon occurring on or after the Vernal Equinox. That's why Easter moves around from year to year!

I've been using the Adventure Path Plug-Ins from Legendary Games. They provide opportunities for extra Trust Points at the beginning, plus add flavourful bits and pieces for the campaign as a whole.

We're still in chapter one, but I'm looking at adding Carrion Hill as well. Glad to hear it's working well for people.

I'd heartily recommend these. They are written by half the same authors who wrote the adventure path and really fit rather well thematically.

I may be late to the party on this one, but I'll Third the Legendary Games plug ins. My players didn't even realize that we were outside and alongside the Paizo adventure. They were a lot of fun, and helped fill the time while the party was spending 8 hours every day researching the prison.

I have been reading. If I can stay up late tonight, I'll get my comments thus far logged. I only just finished the chapter where he interview's Qali.

This is my second time through the book, so I'll try not to spoil anything. We will eventually find out why Salim is an Inquisitor of Pharasma. Hints have been dropped, but I won't point them out.

At this time, I think Neila went up in Salim's opinion when she stated that she doesn't have much use for the gods. He's still a very bitter man, and that shows through in a lot of his interactions.

A few thoughts:
The Clever Endeavor reminds me of the Mos Eisley Cantina.

There are two "Faithful Servants" in this story: Salim and Connell. One unwillingly serves a (presumably) deserving mistress. The other willingly serves an undeserving master. I can see why Ceyanan wanted them to work together.

Connell is deliberately made likeable. He is compared to a puppy. Who doesn't like puppies? He obviously cares deeply about his master. Can eidolons love? The title of Chapter 4: The Greatest Gift, puts in mind John 15:6 - "There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends.NLT" I would say, yes, in James Sutter's view, an eidolon is capable of love. This is further supported by the two outsiders in the Clever Endeavor who are engaged in a relationship that is somewhere on the spectrum of lust to love.

Salim is initially made somewhat unlikeable. He is violent, gruff and rather unsympathetic. He gets somewhat more likeable over the course of the story.

I'm going to attempt to read Death's Heretic with a very critical eye on Salim. When I read the book the first time, I liked the character. However, he is a VERY bitter man. I generally find that bitter people are unpleasant to be around because the bitterness that fills them tends to spew out as they interact with others. Case in point: Salim's comment about Percinov's mother. He theorizes that she is dead. He confirms this hypothesis in a way that is very emotionally painful for Father Adibold. We don't notice it right away because we tend to want to like the main character in the story (especially if the story is from their POV) and because Father Adibold is portrayed as a rather unlikeable person.

I am theorizing that Salim is an unreliable narrator (I know that Varian and Radovan are unreliable because Dave Gross has said as much). Let's see how my theory holds up to scrutiny.

Note:You will not lose anything by reading any of these out of order. All of the Pathfinder Tales are written in such a way that a later story will not spoil a more recent story. I just put things in order because I enjoy reading them in order. Where stories are not connected, I have endeavored to place then in the order that they were published.

To assist the reader, I am adding some notation after each story.
N = Pathfinder Tales Novel
WF = Web Fiction
AP = Adventure Path Fiction

Was it a manuscript written by one Dave Gross? I hear he's got a pretty memorable Hellspawn character! ;)

I also would enjoy reading a "Reread of Varian and Radovan!" Honestly, my intent was to reread the series and get reviews written for all the books that I have not reviewed. I've been working on it with some interruptions.

After I get that done, I want to get reviews written for all the Short Fiction that has not been reviewed yet.

If the Paizo team drops another slug of Short Fiction ePubs, that will mean a lot of very pleasant work for me!

I have debated not reviewing Queen of Thorns since it has been so thoroughly reviewed. That runs contrary to my idea of completeness, though.

All the "problems" I listed in my previous post are GOOD problems!

I wasn't sure if we were starting a new thread for Death's Heretic or not. I think we should, and include Faithful Servant as part of that thread. that way later readers of the threads can comment and discuss the books.

Maybe call it "PFTBC Death's Heretic", or "Faithful Sevant/ Deat's Heretic Discussion"

A more committed Tolkien geek can correct me but Aragorn would've been in his early twenties circa Bilbo and Smaug. And too young or not he was still the Heir of Elendil and that would've not been unknown to one such as Thranduil.

If Aragorn was 80 during the War of the Ring and Bilbo was 51 during the Battle of 5 Armies that would make Aragorn about 20 during the Battle of 5 Armies. That's not too young to be out doing things and making a name for himself.

Hey folks! It is currently both Hannukah and Christmas-time. Now is the time to pick this up if you haven't already. Now is the time to throw one of these beasts into your game. I know I will!


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Tales Subscriber

To take some of the ideas here and mesh them together:

-Give the player a new character of some sort (shipwrecked sailor, native, fey, whatever) to play for a few sessions.

-Bring in an NPC that tells them about a Grippli temple in the swamp that has a cleric that can cast resurrection (or at least reincarnation).

-The Grippli High Priest sends them on a quest for a Macguffin that only Grippli's would want, like a staff that draws all vermin in a 50ft radius.

-The staff is guarded by giant vermin of some sort that they have to slay to win the staff. Note: the linked adventure has some great map tiles that you can print off and you have a spider-themed temple!

-Bring back the staff and the paladin is once again part of the group! Not only that, he brings back a message from Calistria for the party. This message points them at their next task!

-Also bonus: You now have a shipwrecked sailor living on the island who is friendly with the PC's. If any other character death happens, you have a replacement PC.

Really? I use pipped Chessex dice with rounded corners for my greatsword damage with my Two-Handed Fighter (APG Archetype). Last session they never rolled lower than 4.

That same session, my d20 rolled either less than 4 or greater than 15, often in an alternating fashion. Some nights, that's just how it goes.

I'm guessing that's a typo in Inner Sea Gods.

Add Weather to the Web Fiction delays. I'm not complaining and I hope I don't come across that way. I understand that stuff happens in life and, frankly, free Web Fiction probably doesn't put a ton of money in Paizo's pocket, but I do enjoy reading the Web Fiction!

I'll echo UnArcaneElection in that I would truly enjoy reading another Norret and Orlin story. Maybe a Gantier brothers novel?

Which happened first? Did they immediately charge the demon so you asked for initiative rolls OR did you ask for initiative rolls as soon as the demon appeared so they charged it?

I think this point is critical

I think Marc Radle asks a VERY good question.

I am currently running a game with Non-Combat Initiative. I am running a group through The Haunting of Harrowstone and from the time they walked up to the front of the Prison, I have had them in initiative. It has slowed the game down a bit (I do break initiative if they are going to make a big move through cleared areas of the dungeon), but it was the only way that I could see to make the Haunts work in a way that was actually creepy and effective.

Otherwise the game worked this way:
Rogue: "I walk carefully into the room, checking for tracks.
GM: "Roll initiative."
*Rolls*
Everyone: "I delay for the cleric"
Cleric: "I walk in and channel energy."
*Haunt ends*

It has worked. My group has been creeped out more than once.

Once we are out of the haunted prison, we'll be back to "Initiative means we are about to FIGHT!"


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Tales Subscriber

I use Gaming Paper. I am running The Haunting of Harrowstone, and the prison is HUGE! It JUST fits on gaming paper. I was able to get the entire prison onto a single roll. We use construction paper to provide a "fog of war."

I use our Chessex mat to draw out smaller encounters that I don't pre-draw on the gaming paper.
