Thanks Katina, have a great weekend!

Hi Customer Service, I thought that I didn't get my AP PDF for some reason, but just realized that it's under the subsection Taldor in my downloads, instead of with the rest of the APs. Thanks!

Some rambling thoughts..

Encourage your players to really read the Players Guide, let them know that they can tie their backgrounds into some of the NPCs/ locations that it describes. It'll payoff later when those folks pop up in the adventures.

I went through CotCT as a player and I thought that Edge of Anarchy, the beginning included, was great. I'm going to be running it and probably won't really change much. Taking out Lamm quickly was refreshing in that it didn't drag out and made us feel like heroes.

Also, our GM was upfront with us in letting us know that we were to make characters that cared about and were ingrained in Korvosa, so we had had built in reasons to want to see the city remain stable. So that may be something to keep in mind.

On XP: I happen to think that it is a crappy mechanic as it pertains to D&D/ Pathfinder, and that it forces too many combat encounters into written adventures. YMMV on that though, I know some folks like it as a tangible reward.

I'll give more input as I think of it.

My picks:
1, An AP fully in and under Kaer Maga.
2. A Planscape style, plane hoping AP, maybe centered in Axis.
3. Arcadia
4. Something to do with Hermea.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Mountains of Madness?! Where can I read anymore/ anything about this?

...yeah - this is indeed BIG - to the point that, as mentioned in the Comments pages of the Kickstarter itself, maybe having the Blight Setting and it's associated AP (the Levee) in a single book... I think it is now 1100 pages (up from a previous estimate of 900?)... might be stretching the realms of what is sensible. I wonder whether we might get to the point where there would be an option to have 2 separate hardback books rather than a single, possibly rather too cumbersome, tome? I, for one, would throw a little more money at that if it meant I had a book that doesn't become an adventure and a work out in one!

Totally agree. I would much rather this thing were two books. It's probably going to be a pain in the butt to run a game out of a 1000 word book. I'm guessing that would be pricier though.

The point of the Malfeshnekor encounter was many...

1) I wanted to include an encounter that was intentionally tough, to experiment with blurring the lines between the artificial start and end of separate books in the path. (I"d actually count this experiment as something of a failure, since it turns out, most gamers aren't comfortable with bleeding back and forth between books in an AP it seems—there's a perception that you can't start things in the next volume until the first volume is done, and/or that once you move to a second volume you can't go back and do things in a previous one... hopefully I'm wrong about this perception because being able to drift back and forth between adventures like that helps verisimilitude and combats the idea that the whole thing is an immutable railroad)...

2) I wanted to include a tough fight that is easy if you do it "right"; that is, ranged attacks are very much the intention.

3) I wanted an "optional" part of the dungeon. Technically, you don't need to explore any of the dungeon after the room with Nualia; the rest is "bonus" and in there as additional content. This is something lots of video games do (particularly the Dark Souls games); optional, kinda hard to find content that's extra tough.

4) I wanted there to be a reason for Nualia to be doing what she was doing, and Malfeshnekor was a great choice.

5) I wanted to contextualize the relationship between barghests and goblins in Pathfinder a bit; this was the first AP after all, and there was a lot of world-building going on there.

Both of the times that I've run Rise of the Runelords, my players went back and fought Malfeshnekor later. I really played up the idea that he was a goblin god locked up in the island.

So, for what it's worth, your experiment was a big success for us and made our game much more rich. Thank you for that!

It might be. Mine is definitely listed for Late November/ Early December in My Subscriptions.

No other mention of a BobJ ANYWHERE.

Haha, I did the same thing!

Who is Bobj?


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Hey, sorry to hear it PirateDevon.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

I've had a really hard time with Blood Bound. I've tried listening to it twice but can't get past Ilyana Kadushin's narration. I an't seem to tell the characters apart and the voice itself is sort of high pitched and i don't know.. gravelly? Sucks because the book seems awesome.

I've loved Ray Porters work. I just finished a Deadlands novel that he did, Ghostwalkers.

Hi Everyone,

I don't have the time to sift through 15 pages of this so...

Since I am introducing my son, daughter and several of their better friends to all of this, my question is:

What level of characters should they have to start this adventure path?

I had a lot of reading before I learned that is what AP meant. Since no one I know is made of money, and my wife is not deaf dumb or blind, I am trying to make the best purchases I can to make this amazing for them, but also not purchase anything they won't get to for quite a while.

Thanks,
GT

This starts with brand new 1st level characters.

Edit: (sneaky ninja!)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

Thanks everyone! Looks like the problem took care of itself though. The module, AP and Horror Realms all seem to have been pushed back.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

Do we know roughly when the authorizations for these will start to hit for subscribers? Between this, the module and the doubled up Campaign Setting, this will be a pricey month and I want to make sure my bank account is sufficiently padded for it.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Yeah, have fun man!

I have spent the last week thinking this over and I think I am just gonna let this one close. I am thankful as many of you stuck around that did. I dropped the ball on this game from day one. It is only because so many of you stuck in there with my inconsistent posting rate that the game lasted as long as it did.

All I can do is offer my apologies and thanks and try to do better next time. Good gaming to you all.

Sad to hear it Seeker. I had a lot of fun with the game and playing Barl. If at some point you want to restart, let me know!

Also had a lot of fun playing with the rest of you! Happy gaming everyone!


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

The last of my big summer projects is over! Huzzah! I've got some loose ends to take care of still and then I should be a little better with posting.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Nice! They will understand the CMU level of workload. :-D


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

Blue_Drake, not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for, but check out page 427 for monster PC stats.

Hey folks, I'm at my busiest time of the year at work. I'll try to keep up as things roll along, but it's tough for my to check in super regularly. This pbp isn't very fast paced, so it may not matter much, but I figured I give a heads up anyway.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Hey all, I'm at my busiest time of the year with work right now and will probably have a tough time checking into the game as often as I should. I'll try to keep up as much as possible, but if I hold things up, don't hesitate to bot me. Thanks!


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Hey folks, I am getting absolutely buried at work. If I hold things up feel free to bot me. It may not end for another few weeks, but I'll try to check in as often as I can.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

It is. Kudos for pulling it off in a pbp! Complicated combats can be tricky to pull off in this format.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

Awesome, thanks!!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

I'm a backer for the 5th edition version but haven't seen anything yet. Is that normal?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

You can check out the seminar audio here if you are interested.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Happy birthday! I just had mine too (the 9th)!

Extremely excited for this! Especially because I am currently running the original Curse and by the time this book comes out, we should be right around the part that saw the mentioned overhaul!

However, I'm a little surprised to see Gaedren.
** spoiler omitted **

I believe there's an added element to that in the hardcover.

** spoiler omitted **

Ha! That is a small, but clever change that makes the beginning a lot less disconnected! Kudos!

James talked about it in the Curse of the Crimson Throne seminar at Paizocon. You can listen to it here if you are interested.

Thanks Chris!


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Have a fun vacay!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

Good morning!

1. Yep, the assumed standard is 15 point buy, though i know that a lot of folks use 20 points (including me).

2. Yep!


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Sorry all, my wife and I just had a baby and I'm trying to catch up on my pbps. I've got a some reading to do on this one, so it's taking a little longer than the others. I'll get there soon though, promise!


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Thanks! Yeah, she's been pretty fussy in the evenings. She was up until like 2 on Monday night. Luckily I had off on Tuesday, since I wake up at 5am..

Also, I feel your pain on the graduation thing. I work at a university too and summers are actually my busiest time of the year.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Thanks Helio!

I am certainly going to try Andostre. Gaming is one of the ways that to get to keep my sanity.

If you're up for poor infrastructure and high booze taxes, you are always welcome back in Pittsburgh!


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Yeah, sorry to hear that Seeker. Take your time.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

It even gives you an error if you try to look at his profile, haha.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

So, ummm.. just a head's up, Kirth got banned. Hopefully it's just a temporary thing and we can get rolling again soon.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

Thanks Lord Gadigan and Irnk, that's super helpful!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

Onion Knight!! Was Siegward ever actually a summon?


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

Congrats helio!!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

Yay cooperation!! Anybody have a favorite summoned NPC from the series? Solaire is certainly mine, probably with Black Iron Tarkus in 2nd place.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules Subscriber

For folks that already have the book; is it all character options or is there a good amount of Golarion lore in here? I ask because while I run my games in Golarion and use the adventures, I don't actually use the Pathfinder rules.


Mutated Animal Turtle Smasher 10

That sounds like a blast! Have fun!
