After a good amount of discussion about how best to divide up the kineticist material, none of the ways we were going to do it quite fit the way we would like, so we actually have circled back around to our original idea, which was to release a single book as part of our Legendary Heroes product line.

I've talked to layout and if all goes well, Legendary Kineticists will be available starting Friday at the Legendary Games webstore as a PaizoCon exclusive, going into wide release here at Paizo and elsewhere after the convention is over.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

The first one in the series, Kineticist Elements: Mind (you know, in case we decide later to do another Kineticist Elements book somewhere down the road), is off to layout!

I hope to get Legendary Kineticists off to layout tomorrow, but we're a bit undecided about whether or not to include a kineticist prestige class. We usually do in our Legendary Heroes products, but it's not an absolute necessity. I think on balance we're leaning towards no.

Maybe something for a follow-up book. :)

In Part Two of Volume Six of the pirate adventure path, the party is assumed to "avoid a frontal assault on the fort and instead infiltrate the caves beneath the fortress." There are tunnels on the official map labeled To the Fortress, but there's no map of the fortress itself.

Can Fort Scurvy be used as a full-scale replacement for the sea cave infiltration? Can it be used in combination with the published adventure, so that the PCs storm the fortress, then enter the sea caves (or vice versa)?

You could use it either way. It depends on your taste in how the two sections interface with each other, so it's up to you how you'd like to run it.

We're meeting some friends on the Tuesday after PaizoCon to start our West Coast driving tour and they're only there for the one night. Is the Space Needle restaurant worth visiting?

I would generally say: yes. It is something worth doing at least once in your life, in my opinion. (And this is speaking as very frugal person who is very careful about how I spend my money. Granted, I went for lunch, instead of dinner, so saved some money that way.)

The food was really good and the view was gorgeous! Would do again.

I'd say that when I hear this question, half of the respondents say the food is really good, and half say it's really meh. I'd therefore mark it down as "inconsistent." So go to enjoy the view, and if the food is good, take that as a bonus.

(And if you want the really good seats, tell them you're with the band.)

Space Needle food once upon a time was a tragic joke, but I've been about a half dozen times in the last 10 years and it's actually quite good now.

It's VERY expensive, though. The cheapest entree I think is $35, and most are in the 40s-50s, going up into the 70s. It does include a "free" elevator ride to the top, which is I think like $15 just to ride up to the observation deck, so besides the rotating view as you eat (go near sunset - the views are incredible) you can also go up and wander the upper deck and balcony.

10. (tie) Making Craft Work (56 points)

If one wishes to combine Tome of Horrors Complete and Tome of Horrors Complete: Unlimited Edition, then it jumps into 2nd place, at 164 points. Psionics Unleashed opened the year big, owned the top spot for three months, stayed in the top half through May, dwindled away for a couple of months, then came back and brought Psionics Expanded with it.

Top 10 Publishers of 2011:
01. Super Genius Games (1118 points)
02. Open Design (432 points)
03. Dreamscarred Press (312 points)
04. Jon Brazer Enterprises (192 points)
05. Frog God Games (173 points)

07. Rite Publishing (143 points)
08. Legendary Games (85 points)
09. Spes Magna Games (56 points)
10. Adamant Entertainment (30 points)

If one wishes to disregard Pathfinder Paper Minis, add TPK Games (28 points) to the list. Louis Porter Jr. Design just misses out (27 points). Super Genius Games isn't as dominant as they were the previous year; other publishers got in the top 10 more often. Legendary Games shows up this year, in late October. It's the first year for TPK Games, too, in late December.

2011, the year of our birth! We only had two products that year, and nothing after that until July 1, 2012. I'll be interested to see 2013, as that is when LG really started to take off in a big way.

Ok, (and I acknowledge you as a fellow backer, or this would have taken a entirely different tone) but do you have anything official to add? or please don't waste my time....

Hi Purity,

We're just as frustrated as you are with the delay on the HeroLab files, but at this point there's nothing we can do but wait.

HeroLab has had the Mythic Hero's Handbook files for almost 2 months, and aside from a small amount of corrections they sent back to our coder (which he sent back to them) there hasn't been any movement.

About 85% of the mythic spells are entered for the Mythic Spell Compendium. Our coder put in a request to LoneWolf for access to some of the raw data files for the remaining 140 or so spells but has yet to receive it. Once that is done. They will be ready for review.

On the Mythic Monster Manual, again he put in a request for raw daa files for bestiary monsters and has yet to receive them.

This is the second project for which we offered HeroLab support (the first being the Gothic Campaign Compendium), and both times the process has been long and frustrating. Some of that has to do with finding reliable coders to bring a project to completion, but some of it also has to do with the workflow and capacity at LoneWolf. I think they outgrew their original architecture and staffing framework, and they just aren't able to keep up with demand, especially for 3PP.

As a result, we haven't offered HeroLab files for any of our subsequent projects, Kickstarter or otherwise, because we don't want to promise something we aren't confident we can deliver. Unfortunately, we have very little control over the pace of HeroLab work. You mention that we have no problem turning out new products, and certainly that's true; we can set whatever pace we like in terms of releasing product in print and PDF. The only limiting factors are our own workflow and budget.

With HeroLab, that's not the case. We are entirely at the mercy of another company's schedule and priorities for when products are available, and that's not a very fun place to be.

At the time we did Mythic Mania, we had just successfully finished the HeroLab for the Gothic book and felt that the delays there were perhaps an aberration. We had several coders tapped to work on the project and felt ready to go forward. Obviously, it hasn't worked out as hoped for a variety of reasons.

The project is MOSTLY done, and no one will be happier than I when it's finally ALL THE WAY done, but as far as being able to promise exactly when it will be available I just don't know. I'll certainly keep everyone updated as soon as I know anything.

Thanks for the assist, Rednal!

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Thanks for hopping into the discussion Rednal.

I'd agree that the monsters in here cap out at CR 30 by design, as that's as far as any official published Pathfinder monsters go, but Rednal offers a lot of good suggestions for how to improve them further.

I'd also suggest the Path of Villains and Path of Dragons as good supplements to existing mythic rules that really make your monsters more effective and resilient to dirty tricks your PCs will try to pull on them. This content is not duplicated in our mythic hardbacks (other than a couple of mythic dragon abilities).

I'm actually running two separate groups through Legendary Planet right now. One group has all standard fantasy races (though one is an alienist summoner from the Gothic Campaign Compedium), while the other has two chlorvians. One was raised by gnomes and thinks she's just a tall, barky gnome. So her background is basically as an orphan who had never known anything other than the gnomes, though there are a few strange family stories about things that had clues about other worlds.

The other is more of the amnesia background.

Both of them get called "wood elves" by almost everybody (and so, for that matter, does the gnome) - a bit of a running gag on the fantasy world. Of course, now they're off into To Worlds Unknown, so the gag isn't needed any longer, but I'm sure it'll come up again at some point.

I just ran into a weird situation from using the Base Settlement Statistics presented in Ultimate Rulership. I like the starting Base Value for each settlement type and how they can be improved upon through specific buildings, but what about the Purchase Limit?

Right now, the capital city that my players have built over the course of 5 years (in game time) has a current population of 5,560, with 54 lots, making it a Metropolis (since it is at least 2 districts; I have no concerns about these numbers since their capital city is more like a downtown core that is the greatest collection of the nation's economic power but not the highest population density). Thanks to some of the buildings within the city, the highest spellcasting level is 7th and the current Base Value is 9,500.

The problem (from a common sense point of view) that arose is that there are no other suggested alternatives for the Purchase Limit. In lieu of suggested alternatives, I went with the chart in the Gamemastery Guide book, which sets the Purchase Limit to 100,000 gold pieces for a Metropolis settlement.

That feels drastically off to me for a settlement that has a diverse spread of economic development with just the minimum number of people living there to make it work. The Purchase Limit of the settlement feels way too high when you compare it to the Population and Base Value numbers. Any suggestions on how to make a starting value for the Purchase Limit based on settlement type?

Cheers!

CB out.

Sure. The simple solution is to assign the settlement type based on the Settlement Population Ranges on p. 203 of the GMG. At a population of 5,560, they're just barely over the line to "Small City," which would give a purchase limit of 25,000 gp.

The "two districts equal a metropolis" concept is a weird one, and I think it ends up attributing more game-mechanical meaning to the word than it should have. Go with population and let it rock.
