I totally agree with Tower of the Lonely GM: "Small Treasures" is a wonderful addition to the game. It definitely falls into the “why didn’t anybody do this before” category.

Overall, “Alleys of Zobeck” put me in mind of the old Judges Guild products. (Judges Guild was, I think, the first non-TSR company to produce supplements for D&D.) Their “Ready Ref Sheets” booklet was also an eclectic mix of interesting and useful stuff, which I still occasionally use even today (most recently, about two weeks ago). May Alleys of Zobeck have an equally long and useful life!

I too remember the cool lists from JG Charles. It may interest you to know I was channeling JG when I was designing "Small Treausres". Thanks for your accolades!

Want some interesting urban NPCs and encounter supplements for a great bargain? Snatch up Alleys of Zobeck, a great value for less than $3.

Bestiary PDF is.... Well, it gorgeous. And the development work by Jason Nelson of Legendary Games really helps these monsters shine, as well.

From what I heard at Gen Con, some of these monsters will appear in the upcoming Legendary Planet adventure path, at least in installments by Legendary Games designer Mike Shel.

Yes the Bestiary is grogeous: both the layout and the art! The Azza Gremlin I designed for it looks EXACTLY as I imagined.

I must find the artist and thank him. :^ )

That's great to hear! We worked extremely hard to make sure the visuals (art, maps and overall graphic design) in this book, and the Bestiary for that matter, are super, extra, awesome!

Lovely, Marc. I was pleased my Azza Gremin was accepted into the Bestiary. I can't wait to see the art for it!

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

This needs to be available on Hero Lab of course. :^ )

I voted. Did YOU?

Grippli should be detailed!

I'd be happy to contribute as well!

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

You need maps? How many?

I know a guy...

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

OSW and Steve: I get what you're both saying. Still, for what it was intended to accomplish: I give it a thumbs up! :^ )

Will there be more details about lizard folk in the Southlands book?

Any chance of a Blight/Levee related game session at Paizocon this year? That would go straight to the top of my lottery list.
Sorry, we won't have anything from The Blight ready in time for this year. We ran a Blight adventure a couple years ago, but it was a super-long, multiple-day session so it's difficult to wrangle. We will have some Northlands Saga and Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms stuff though.

I would gladly run a Blight adventure for FGG at a future PaizoCon.

Hell, I'd write one for Blight if you asked me to. :^ )

Frankly I thought there were a lot of really good items this year. Here is my list of favorites (not including my Bonewarp Chain, as requested), in the order I saw them...

Arrow of the Deep Wood – 211 Words, Arrow (Too much backstory, surprise abilities.) 6/10

Thank you for liking my item "Arrow of the Deep Wood". :^ )

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

What news on the Lost Lore product line?

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

Tiefling assassins recalled! :^ )

Though now I'll have to designate another target or lose my deposit. When? WHEN will we see competing firms and lower prices?! Ehh, what are ya gonna do...

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

Happy New Year (Chinese)!

Any updates?

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

I'll have some availability later this year. Dotting this fer sure.

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

I'm with Maurice. I would like to see my entry on that list!

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

Any news OSW?

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

Snorter, you're totally right about item pricing. The rules are not clear for anything but potions, scrolls and wands. The others have a rough mechanic, an incomplete reference table and rest is Voodoo.
:^ )

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

I sent mine in last night Mark. I've had the RPG Superstar Curse for four years running. Always something goes wrong. This time I think I have a winner. You sound like a fair and steady judge. I'm glad you're on board.

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

Update?

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

News? :^ )

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

Signed on as a backer last night. You may call me "Beloved of Horus." :^ )

The adventures and supplements were too much to pass up. And one of my players needs a new set of dice and the exclusive Southlands Dice Add-On was just the thing!
So the dice are sold separately right? How does that work?

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

Hope you feel better OSW. We're all rooting for you.
Let me know if I can help out with proofreading or feedback. A second pair of eyes on a document can really help. :^ )

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

The unlocked stretch goals are freaking me out! Yay, for the Hamunaptra writers! Who DOESN'T want this?

This means I have time to work on a submission for the next topic, which I can't get to until I finish the next two rotations ending sometime in the autumn. That's my silver lining.

True enough Isuru. OSW, please don't confuse our impatience with contempt. We're all just very excited about this release! :^ D

Beware the ides of... Oh, nevermind.

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

Yessss. :^D

If I can be of any help OSW please let me know!

Beware the ides of July...

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

When we used Net of Comets (p. 210 ) in our Midgard play tests at PaizoCon we discovered its way overpowered for fourth level. Either the area of effect needs to be reduced, the damage duration needs to be limited or the level needs to be raised to fifth or higher.

Thanks for the update OSW!

BTW, you might look for some "free" cover art on the internet from the 1800s. Nordic themes were very popular then. You might find an opera poster by Richard Wagner with the Yggdrasil on it you can have for nothing. Worth a look...

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

Typical Aussie: goes on a Walkabout and who knows when he'll be back. Last time he was delayed by a firestorm...

Will Yggdrasil be out for PaizoCon?!

I have three and half weeks to go until my degree is finished, then I can devote some much needed holiday time to finishing this up. So sometime before my 40th birthday - 13h July. Would be great to release for Paizocon with Wayfinder.

Thanks for the update OSW!!

Published before PaizoCon would be an answer to prayer!

Looking forward to seeing you Carlos!

I know I won't be the first to say this Rich but FWIW I like your Sacrificial Monkey! Should have known it was yours. :^ )

I am coming! And bringing Temple of Dagon with me!!

And my wife.

Thanks Wolfgang/Marc. Feeling a little sheepish but that's ok! ;)

In other news, I have artists and cartographer on board, plus some cartography of my own to do...

Editing continues...

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. :^ )

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

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?

Does this add to or expand upon the vril technology laid out in sunken empires?
Doc, Deep Magic adds to the vril of Sunken Empires in a BIG way. Rather than focusing on items, however, it turns the lens to the wielders and channelers of vril, with several archetypes, feats, bloodlines, and a host of accompanying spells that allow casters to transmute the arcane energy of 'modern' spells into the raw, primordial force known as vril. Assuming everything made it in (waiting on my copy, too!), then there's also a sidebar addressing how vril wielders can recharge the vril batteries and items from Sunken Empires.

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! :^ )

Waiting around for a response can be tedious.
Instead, forget about Wayfinder and work on something else. It's the best way to pass the time folks! :^ )

Libations!
*Fosters!*

Appear! O Shaggy One!

Had a great time gaming with you last year Daigle! Desiring to see my freelancer friends again!

Still tentative until trip financing is secured. Stay tuned...

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

I emailed you my "troll" article a week ago and got no acknowledgment of receipt. Can you please confirm you got it okay?

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

MUST have a fridge in the room. We were promised one at registration weeks in advance. When we arrived: no fridge. We were then told they "ran out". This made it rather difficult to stock up on supplies which strained our food budget.

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

I'm pleased to see renewed interest in From Shore to Sea. Be looking for more Sunken Empires inspired adventures and vril magic rules in the near future! :^ )

You might check with STAN! Morgan. He did comics for Kobold Quarterly you know.
If he's not too busy he might be able to help out. :^ )

Dark Archive Star Voter Season 9

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. ;^ )
