I really didn't think I had the talent for mapping. Then OSW, you gave me encouragement to try. Thanks so much! You have one of my maps for my advenuter in Yggdrasil. I hope you find it useful. :^ )
Let me just say something about the art in this dreamboat: its the best ever from Kobold Press. No exaggeration. I see some new artists: very good. And all the work is first rate. As has been stated above the layout is first class. I even like the feel of the pages: not glossy but sturdy. This product is German engineering plus American ingenuity at its best! :^ )
Which brings up a question: who did the printing and where?
Marc & Wolfgang, how do you feel about the quality of the binding on this one?

Well stated Brandon! I'm more excited to read the new vril stuff than anything else. I'm digging the sidebar: casters can recharge a vril battery by chanelling vril into it. Pretty cool! Check out the book for more. I've got a lot of reading to do now and my weekly gaming group is anxious to get the pdf and especially the HERO LAB supplements! :^ )
As a ADVENTURER-HEIROPHANT backer in California I received my print copy yesterday (in time for my birthday!). Guys, you are going to love this book! There's more spells in there than in the PF Core Rulebook plus Ultimate Magic COMBINED... and the quality was everything we were hoping for. Best book from Kobold Press since Midgard Campaign Setting. With backer stretch goal goodies coming out in the next several weeks it's like a present in the mail (or email) every week! My compliments to the designers and contributors! :^ )
Louis, I've liked your style since I met you at last year's PaizoCon. You will hear from me soon! I work well with others, know my Pathfinder rules and come with a live-in editor.
I will email you my petigree plus links to some of my work. Be checking out Yggdrasil fanzine for my latest adventure release as well. ;^ )
I would like to see (or even help design) an AP in a region with a Meso American or South Asian (India, Old Siam, etc.) theme.
I'll give this the full treatment in my thread when I have a few moments... Is a mid to high level party in need of a rogue if they have a pair of these?
Looking forward to your review GM_Solspiral! I appreciate your comments and attention to my entry!I don't consider this item a threat to the role of rogues. They are still valuable allies as Jr. Annalyst pointed out above. Besides you could also use summon monster, summon nature's ally or animate dead to spring traps. Pickled Orc's Feet gives players other options for dealing with dangerous terrain (and not every party has a rogue). Plus the item has other uses too! :^ )
Thanks for the feedback guys!
Another issue is the logistical issues for GMs who now have to decide on the fly if the trap is going to affect he feet or not (for example a pressure plate triggered arrow trap would prolly miss despite the low level ac of the feet because the crossbow is aimed higher.)
I considered this while designing the item. Not everything has to have a detailed mechanic. I think a GM's description of the outcome would add to the fun! :^ )
Please critique my item!

This is totally awesome! As the unelected chairman of S.E.A.S.(Sunken Empires Appreciation Society) I have been dreaming of this for some time! Brandon, let me know if you need any support with vril magic design. You know I'm at your service!

Just for the record Harris, you would be very welcome at my table for Curse of Mata Api!
The 'Sin' collection doesn't suck. Got a theme for a new adventure or AP? Pick through the corresponding sin theme and find interesting monsters and ideas. The art is also first rate which means you've got killer visuals you can copy and print as handouts for your gamers! James says, "Check it out!"

As a contributor to this product (Saint Vadim) I was excited to get a look at the art and the layout. But I have to say that I am very impressed with everyone's legends. This is a wonderful compilation. Why? Because of the imaginative quality of the each legend. This is a great example of what collaborative projects can accomplish. I'm so pleased!
Kobold Design means QUALITY Pathfinder material designed by gamers, for gamers. That's not just a cliche. It's the real deal. Sure you could purchase Midgard because of the excellent design work by great names like Jeff Grubb, Brandon Hodge, Christina Stiles, Dan Voyce, Ed Greenwood Wolfgang Baur and the 2012 Gold ENie Award winner Ben McFarland. Or you could buy it because it has some of the best creative gameworld material you'll get anywhere! Oh... and the print copies are high quality, made in the USA press. The bindings of Kobold Design products will NOT fall apart on you.
Hey, just for the inspiration it's a worthy purchase. It reminds me of the old 3.0 Forgotten Realms book. I ended up not using much of the material, but it was very inspiring for my own gameworld design. With Midgard, I'm also going to select out some of the cool races and kingdoms (Neimheim and Zobeck are just a couple I MUST include) and use them in my own homebrew. It's totally worth it! You will like what you get with the Midgard Campaign Setting.
