+1 "The enemy within" Warhammer 1E.
A loose collection of encounters with an epic fight at the end. .Requires a lot of rebuilding but is worth it. Only campaign world requirement is a (very)large river with cities and castles on it. (The map in the module is essential:)


Hello, do you use the OpenSSL that is affected by the heartbleed bug. And if so do we need to change our passwords now?


Computer says no!


"Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era" by James M. McPherson. The best book I've read about the american civil war, recommended:)


back in 2ed we had an(optional ?) rule: Mages and clerics had to spend 10 minutes per spell level of the spell he wanted to memorize in study or meditation. It led to alot of sitting around outside dungeon doors flipping hourglasses (not recommended)


Dont forget tetanus and diphteria:)


"Steampunk. ... Punch Card Computers powered by steam engines and coal. William Gibson's "Difference Engines""LazarX

Colonial expansion is helped by repeater rifles, maxim machine guns and howitsers that wipe out the indigenous population.
The telegraph connects continents and no villain is safe - every police station in britain has one!
Perhaps anarchist cells have stolen the recipe to Lyon Playfairs cacodyl cyanide artillery shell and plan to bomb the royal carriage!
Opium dens and squalid gin joints create the perfect hunting grounds for pimps, blackmailers, thieves and white slave traders...
If you have a cough or feel down, go to your local drug store and buy some Heroin (courtesy of Bayer pharmaceuticals )
The race for naval superiority is on. New battleships are obsolete the moment they first leave the shipyard etc.
Coal fired power stations (hydrocracking coal produses hydrogenxxx - hydrogenxxx lifts the Armoured Zeppelins of the Reich)


"Instruments of darkness" by Imogen Robertson. A Housewife and a naturalist as 18th century amateur detectives.

"Not a good day to die" by Sean Naylor. Operation Anaconda in Afganistan 2002 (the end reminded me of the film "Black hawk down")

Just started "The march of folly" by Barbara Tuchman.


Hanne Hukkelberg does "Break my body" by The Pixies


Finished "Oath of Fealty", "Kings of the North" and starting "Echoes of Betrayal" by Elizabeth Moon :)


Pathfinder e6-7- say when...
Just watch the monsters CR, Damage Reduction and immunities(anything over 5 is tricky, total immunity should not exist ).
Warhammer 2ed - :)
I've only read Dragon Age, and it has a low magic feel to it.


Conscripted. Driving supplies and empty porta- potties to the guys on maneuver and returning to base with trash and full potties.
The joys of service.


Len Deighton - "SS GB". 1941, England is occupied, but finding out who killed a black marketeer is business as usual for Douglas Archer of the Scotland yard.


Finished "The passage" by Justin Cronin. Vampyrism(?) as a virus...
Started "Among Thieves: A Tale of the Kin" by Douglas Hulick . Thieves fighting over a macguffin done right.


First law +3 !

Brent Weeks +2

Raymond E. Feist. "Magician"

IMO "Sword of truth" gets weird after the first book.( the hero doing very unheroic stuff + torture porn)


Finished "The Better Angels of Our Nature: The Decline of Violence in History and Its Causes" by Steven Pinker. Very interesting and uplifting.
Started; "The Summoner" by Gail Z. Martin. Problem ; all the protagonists are described as handsome or beautiful...


His name is Samuel," just call me Sam", Snarly.
:)


Charles Dickens ? "Oliver Twist" and "David Copperfield".
Frances Hodgson Burnett; "The secret garden"
"The Jungle Book" by Rudyard Kipling.
Anything by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren - Pippi Longstocking ?
As for the science stuff - ask the librarians:)


Why isnt the cleric asking his church for resourses? Acolytes are cheap, literate labour that can teach and convert the pagan goblins! Goblin converts can be missionaries and convert other tribes...


Hollow earth! Dinosaurs , psychics, megafauna and lots of stone age humanoids.

some stuff

Hey mang, I've seen you around here a bit, and your name is uncannily familiar. Are you by any chance a . . . musician?(...)

Unfortunately not, but if i was i'd be a drummer:)

And another series starts with " Scar night" by Alan Campbell. Are Fallen gods, an immortal assassin and a suspended city high magic enough?:)

I have a dull job, but the upside is I can read while I'm here. So i'm looking for something new. Last book series I read was the Name of the WInd series by Rothfuss.

I am looking for suggestions on what to start next.
I like high magic.
I don't particularily like the farmboy becomes a fighter type books.

So no J. V. Jones "Bakers boy" then ? (Boy becomes magician!)

Perhaps
Stephen Erikson " Malazan Book of the Fallen."
10 books set in a high fantasy world where gods, men, women and others fight over dominance. First book is "Gardens of the Moon"

Or
"The Lies of Locke Lamora" by Scott Lynch.
Two gentlemen thieves who wants revenge.

Maybe
"Magician" (Riftwar Saga) by Raymond E. Feist.
Two boys grow up to be pretty awesome:)


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I second archers and mobs

Talk to your players - explain how you experience the situation . Ask them what they think about it. Listen to what they say. If no solution can be found, stop playing pathfinder and change system.


Have the ranger discover that the PCs are coming. The ranger and his slaver buddies try to trap the PCs and sell them into slavery.
If the ranger succeeds, then you a really great start of a campaign :)If the ranger fail but manage to escape you have great nemesis for your PCs!
Look up ; "Scourge of the Slave Lords" for ideas!


Oh smurf, its happening again!


"Reamde" by Neal Stephenson - its good, but Charles Stross did do something similar in "Halting state"


+2 or -2 on everything (courtesy of 4ed:)


1. Total war / civil war + intrigue (there has got to be some american civil-war buffs in paizo-central:)
2. Wikings!


Of the top of my head,
in Pathfinder;
1 Clerics can damage undead by channelling positive energy (30' range).
2 Incorporeal undead can be damaged when incorporeal (they lost the 50% miss chance they had in 3.5).
3 Familiarize yourself with Combat Maneuver Bonus and Combat Maneuver Defence.
4. All spellcasters can cast a number of 0 level spells at will.
5. Pathfinder PCs are tougher than 3.5 characters so the opposition may need to be "beefed up" a bit.

P.S.Check out the messageboards for tips on running the module :)


A bard based on Dudley Moores charachter in "Arthur" (surprisingly effective and fun to play:)
And a fighter/wizard based on "Evil Ernie" (killed in his first encounter, mourned by no one:)


Dungeon Issue #51

The Bandits of Bunglewood
by Christopher Perkins
No one will admit who the bandits really are. An AD&D adventure for character levels 1–3; 12 total levels.

A 2ed adventure that almost lead to a tpk.

"The Strain Trilogy" by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan . Vampires as a virus.

I bought the first book when it originally came out in hardback and finally got around to starting it just the other night.

Very interesting so far. Looking forward to completing the trilogy.

If you liked book 1, book 2 and 3 is more of the same :)

I am planning to use the the Styes and Carrion Hill. Some old faves i would also consider would be The Lost Temple of Tharizdun module and The Mad Gods Key from one of the Dungeon magazine.

Exellent adventures all . Also "Escape from Meenlock prison" Dungeon 146.


"Harvest", by Tess Gerritsen. Bayside Hospital is is famous for its transplant team, but the doctors on it are dying.


"Wise mans fear", by Patrick Rothfuss. A bit long-winded and not as good as the first book(which was very good).

"Strange piece of paradise ", by Terry Jentz. Its been 15 years since someone tried to kill the author and her friend. Now she tries to find out what happened that night and why no one was arrested.

Recommendations; something by Joe Abercrombie, R. Scott Bakker, Chris Wooding or Scott Lynch ?


In my homebrew setting the gods were gone.
Why;
They didn't fit in. The setting was loosely based on "Perdido street station" and the city of New Crobuzon. As such it was home to all manner of strange beings , but none godlike in power.
Result;
No divine magic.
Made potions of healing, potions of neutralize poison and (addictive)stat boosters available through apothecarys or could be made by a PC with ranks in profession(herbalist)or profession (alchemist).

As a result the undead became more of a challenge;)
It also ment that I could have ; "the return of divine magic as a defense against the rise of undead" as an over-arching campaign idea.
And no - one said that the returning, undead- hating, gods had to good:)


After heavy rains - flash floods who flush workers down ravines or cenotes. The cenotes can be very deep (race against time to save before drowning), or inhabited by low level undead or a large snake .

Killer bees, stirges , spreading fear.

After storms - trees will have fallen - slowing down roadwork , maybe near a monster lair? The workers need to woork faster and silently to avoid notice?

A choker or ettercap picking of workers one by one.

Some of the worker work for the local thievesguild, stealing equipment and planning to rob the the guys who come with the pay roll:)


(Forgotten realms) A voice , only I could hear, told me to say his name.
I said, "Bane?"
The rest of the party almost did not raise me afterwards.

Ordained Episcopal Deacon here. All the religious arguments/debates can be summed up in one quote, in my opinion:

For those who believe, no proof is necessary, for those who don't believe, no proof is possible (Stuart Chase 1888-1985)

Agree with Erik, ignore it, or flag it, but in both cases move on.

Deeply held beliefs do not respond to arguments on the internet:).


The first books are different and they stand out from other contemporary fantasy. The are interesting , and i don't think you will regret reading them.

spoiler:
Its an interesting blend of 11- 12th century mediterranean cultures, the crusades, tolkien, the tv show "Lie to me" and Alien.


"Hunters run", by Daniel Abraham, George R. R. Martin, Gardner Dozois. Sci - fi about the problems of identity. (reminds me of late -60s, early 70s sci-fi:).


Dungeon Issue #146

Escape from Meenlock Prison
Tim and Eileen Connors
What was supposed to be a simple prisoner transfer grows complicated when the PCs arrive at a prison that’s recently come under new management. A D&D adventure for 1st-level characters.
A short exellent dungeon. Was very creepy.

plot spoiler:
A winery uses prisoners as workers. The Prisoners have taken control and lets the PC's "escort" their prisoner down in the dungeon under the winery. Meenlocks , small creatures that uses illusions and drains wisdom have broken into the dungeon and uses the rest of the prisoners/guards as food or bait:) .

Dungeon Issue #128

Shut In
by F. Wesley Schneider and James Sutter
An elusive killer is leaving a trail of noble blood across the city. When the PCs are recruited to protect an influential spinster, they discover that more is afoot at Dromdal House than anyone suspects. In fact, they may be the ones who need protection, from their aging ward. A D&D adventure for 2nd-level characters.

Drop this in any city. It is a good short adventure you can develop into a bigger one(more foreshadowing, the PCs knows one of the victims, etc)
Its easy to run.
It is available from the paizo store in print and pdf:)

Oh and it has lots of Roleplay moments, there is a dinnerparty, a rather "changeable" old biddy, the senile butler, the investigation itself, the dogs...

As DM you get to ham it up;)
