Ah, I can't believe I missed the subscription time on this. Oof, silly me.

You can still start a subscription with book 1 of Strange Aeons up until Strange Aeons #2 ships in September.

All right, adding hold portal and magic missile to Min's spellbook.

8 skill points added: Appraise, Intimidate, Knowledge (arcana), (dungeoneering), (local) x2, (nature), Spellcraft.

Will save +1; BAB +1; hit points 4 (half plus 1) +2 Con +1 FCB = +7 hp for a total of 16.

Kingmaker had less than 1000 NONMINT copies of AP #33 left in 2014 and less than 25 of AP #36.

All issues are out of print.

If i were a betting man, i'd say we get a hardcover collection (with the improved kingdom and troop rules from Ultimate Campaign) by 2020. ;-)

I think a new kingdom-building AP, maybe set in Arcadia, would be a better bet.

Ooh, or a planet-building AP set on a remote moon for Starfinder!

If it's the rules/format that are popular, they'd make more money with a new AP using the same rules/format than reprinting an old one.

Normally, I'm first to rain on anyone's parade about new hardcover compilations.

But this would be fantastic. Maybe reworking to fill the level gap between Crown and Revenge and make sure Revenge and Carnival don't cover the same levels.

I wouldn't say anyone should expect it, but I would totally buy it if they made it.

On your Downloads page, each product has a Date Last Downloaded and Date Last Updated column. Check and see if there's been an update since your latest download.

(Paizo sends out an email as well when PDFs are updated, to let you know to download the latest version, but if your inbox is anything like mine, those are easy to miss.)

What is your opinion of The Thunder Below? I.e., does it suffer from its unusual genesis, or do you think it's as good an adveture as any despite being conceived backward, as it were?

Where would you set it if you were going to run it in Golarion?

Quote:
Orc Ferocity: Once per day, when a half-orc is brought below 0 hit points but not killed, he can fight on for one more round as if disabled. At the end of his next turn, unless brought to above 0 hit points, he immediately falls unconscious and begins dying.

My half-orc fell to -3 and used Ferocity to fight on for one more round. But after taking the hit that dropped her below zero, she was hit two more times before her initiative came back up.

Does taking additional damage before the end of her next turn affect orc ferocity, or does she still get one more action regardless once the ability is triggered? What if she takes enough damage to kill her before the end of her next turn? Clearly, if she's below negative Con, she'll die after her Ferocity turn, per the ability description, but can piling on damage after the ability is triggered prevent her from getting the benefit by killing her before her one-more-round action?

Not much information on the settlement yet. I imagine specific information about the makeup of the town will be in the module.

According to the map in the Inner Sea World Guide, Saringallow is pretty much right in the middle of Isger, on the Conerica River just below where the two forks flow together.

Crypt of the Everflame had some illusory monsters and had this to say:

Quote:
These [redacted] are illusory. Whenever they hit or are hit by one of the player character, they react appropriately, but give that PC a DC xx Will save to notices that these [redacted] are not real. Characters who are told that the [redacted] are not real receive a +4 bonus on the save. If the save is failed, the character believes the wounds caused by the attacking [redacted]. Once all of the characters have disbelieved or all of the [redacted] are slain, both the [redacted] and the wounds caused by them disappear.

That was very early in PfRPG's life and might have been contradicted since then, but I always liked the mechanic.

Yeah, I don't play RPGs to be challenged, though I understand that lots of people do. (And, fwiw, I never go to Chipotle precisely because they don't have as many options as Freebirds.)

As taks says, it makes more character options possible, particularly if the player wants feats with ability score prereqs. For example, with a 15-point-buy it's hard for a fighter to get a 13 Int for Combat Expertise and the Improved line of combat maneuver feats and still have fighter-like melee damage (Str) and front-liner hit points (Con).

Sorry, guys. Had a busy Father's Day weekend with a lot of family stuff, and my son leaves for camp tomorrow so I spent today packing and making checklists. The bus leaves at lunchtime tomorrow, so I'll advance the gameplay thread tomorrow afternoon.

I'm pretty sure UnArcaneElection means those are his house rules that he feels are more palatable with 20-point-buy than 15.

This is why I have a different DMing alias for each of my games. If someone (including me!) wants to look back for a specific detail I've posted, they don't have to slog through random things I've posted around the boards or posts from other games; they can go to my DM alias's post list and get only posts from that game.

Why did the now defunct PF Online change the rules?

Because the OGL doesn't apply to video games, is my understanding. They can't make a video game based on the underlying 3.x d20 mechanic that belongs to WotC.

I really, really like the set-up for this one, but the resolution leaves me a little flat for some reason. Haven't figured out why yet; I just know I love it all up until the final location, and then I'm meh.

The plans were clearly on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard.' It's Golarion's own fault for not looking.

As a long-time subscriber to the AP line I can't think of any CR range/encounter type/background which I couldn't pull out of one AP or another; I consider tweeking things as part of my (GM) job.

This is true (and something I do a lot, too). But for someone just getting into the hobby, without a shelf full of APs and modules, it's going to be a lot cheaper to buy one hardback than several dozen PDFs.

And even though I have the shelf full of APs and modules, I'm not going to say no to one more book that might have just what I'm looking for ... not to mention the HeroLab data set to make quick stat tweaks.

If Iomedae is still around, in the same role, then it seems likely that Aroden never returned/reclaimed his status as patron of Humanity.

James Jacobs has been very emphatic that Aroden is dead, not missing. Not only dead, but already been judged and sent on by Pharasma past the possibility of resurrection. The mystery has never been where Aroden is but what killed him.

That said, I expect (based on nothing but pure speculation) that it will be the elder and newer gods that survive in Starfinder: the ancient ones like Desna who have stood the test of time and the new ones like the ascended AI. I would expect that the handful of gods prominent in the Inner Sea in the Pathfinder era (Norgorber, Iomedae, Cayden, etc.) would have passed their relevancy date, and that the dwarven/halfling/elven gods would be largely absent along with their populations.

The "Starfinder!" update is for backers only, but one of them posted the info here:

From the Kickstarter:

Robert Brookes wrote:

You may have heard it already, but if not, Paizo announced their Starfinder space fantasy RPG that is compatible with Pathfinder! Both myself and Aethera co-creator Jacob Thomas were in attendance at Paizocon and I have had a wonderful series of conversations prior to the announcement with Stephen Radney-McFarland and Wes Schneider regarding Aethera and Starfinder! We are very early in talks but we are working together to ensure that Aethera is the best product representative of our original design intention, and that we leverage our expertise to help make Starfinder excellent as well. Paizo is committed to utilizing the best authors in the industry and nobody knows Pathfinder in space better than the Aethera team!

There will be more exciting announcements to come in the future as we know and can share more. But now that we can publicly speak about this exciting new development there will be much more to discuss!

Right now this doesn't change anything for the Kickstarter, however we will keep you all up to date as that changes. We're still editing and developing as we speak and hosting games at Origin and GenCon!
More to come! Keep your eyes on the stars!

Sounds like exactly what Starjammer is doing: positioning themselves to be Starfinder-compatible rather than Pathfinder-compatible, as advertised. As I said, I've read the Aethera Campaign Setting, and it doesn't sound like the same setting as Starfinder at all: a binary star system, a century-long war, a different list of core races, etc.

EDIT: Aethera also ran an introductory adventure in its setting at PaizoCon and is running games in slots at GenCon. They delivered their first backer rewards in April and announced a new adventure at PaizoCon. They haven't shut down.

Yeah, what Tacticslion said. Plus, the available information about Aethera doesn't sound like the same setting Paizo is pitching with Starfinder.

I'm sure that Aethera will now be Starfinder RPG-compatible rather than Pathfinder RPG-compatible, but they don't look like the same product. d20pfrd's Starjammer (formerly Starfinder) is in the same boat.

Which link? The "Aethera Campaign Setting" link or the "early discussions" link?

It's still a separate company, as far as I know. As are Starjammer and Legendary Planet, two other 3PP properties. Why do you think Aethera is owned by Paizo now? Why do you think Aethera is Starfinder?


2 people marked this as a favorite.
Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yeah, near as I can tell, Aethera is a completely separate campaign setting whose creators are working with Paizo to make it compatible with Starfinder rules. Starfinder is going to be based in Golarion's solar system as detailed in Distant Worlds.

Quote:

Helpless: A helpless character is paralyzed, held, bound, sleeping, unconscious, or otherwise completely at an opponent's mercy. A helpless target is treated as having a Dexterity of 0 (–5 modifier). Melee attacks against a helpless target get a +4 bonus (equivalent to attacking a prone target). Ranged attacks get no special bonus against helpless targets. Rogues can sneak attack helpless targets.

As a full-round action, an enemy can use a melee weapon to deliver a coup de grace to a helpless foe. An enemy can also use a bow or crossbow, provided he is adjacent to the target. The attacker automatically hits and scores a critical hit. (A rogue also gets his sneak attack damage bonus against a helpless foe when delivering a coup de grace.) If the defender survives, he must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + damage dealt) or die. Delivering a coup de grace provokes attacks of opportunity.

Creatures that are immune to critical hits do not take critical damage, nor do they need to make Fortitude saves to avoid being killed by a coup de grace.

Quote:
Pinned: A pinned creature is tightly bound and can take few actions. A pinned creature cannot move and is denied its Dexterity bonus. A pinned character also takes an additional –4 penalty to his Armor Class. A pinned creature is limited in the actions that it can take. A pinned creature can always attempt to free itself, usually through a combat maneuver check or Escape Artist check. A pinned creature can take verbal and mental actions, but cannot cast any spells that require a somatic or material component. A pinned character who attempts to cast a spell or use a spell-like ability must make a concentration check (DC 10 + grappler's CMB + spell level) or lose the spell. Pinned is a more severe version of grappled, and their effects do not stack.

What's the difference between a bound character who is Helpless and a bound character who is Pinned? Is a character whose hands are tied less bound (Pinned) than one who is tied to an altar or stake (Helpless)? Are there degrees of being bound which culminate in the Helpless condition where a character can no longer make an Escape Artist check?

I haven't had any problems extracting maps from PDFs. I'm running Giantslayer online and have pulled images out for use in MapTool. Of course, I do it myself manually; perhaps it's Staples that's changed their software?

Bob, one thing I do at the table is pull the pictures of monsters and NPCs out of the PDFS and display them on a monitor. I have a group of players that's been around since AD&D and are pretty blase about monsters. If I say, "You see a wight," they shrug; if I say, "You see this" and put up one of Paizo's pictures (of a wight), they're like, "What the heck is that thing!? It looks scary!"

Of course, if they make the Knowledge roll, they can identify what they're fighting, but I find they react more viscerally to a picture than to a physical description of a monster.

My family loves The Flash, but last night's episode was a big disappointment, especially after so much time off.

Spoiler:
Team Star Labs seemed remarkably unintelligent, and as dumb as their plan was, it might actually have worked if they'd added the step "put booted Zoom in containment cell" before "Barry gloats unattractively." He got them monologuing!

And is it just me, or is "depower the only guy who may be able to stop the monster" not an acceptable way to get Wally back? Who's to stop Zoom from killing Wally and a bunch of other innocent people once he has Barry's speed? I was really hoping for a Superman II-style trick where the team stole Zoom's speed for Flash rather than the other way around.

Going forward, haven't we already had a couple of episodes of "Barry's lost his speed and doesn't know how to cope?" Do we really have to see Depressed!Barry again? He's not much fun. That goes double for Mopey!Caitlin, who really needs to be given something to do other than be abused romantically and taken hostage.

I really hope they can turn this around before the season finale. I don't want The Flash to go the way of Legends of Tomorrow, which I quit watching in disgust at how incompetent the heroes are.
