For anyone playing in Against the Cult of the Bat God here are the rules for character creation-
20 point point buy
If you want, post your character class here. The adventure is a mix of investigation and combat so a well balanced party is recommended (two combat types, a cleric, a wizard/sorcerer, and either a bard or rogue is my recommendation).
If you don't see this post or don't feel like like making a character,that's fine. I'll bring some pregens.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Also, a box of books arrived from Raging Swan Press the other day, so there will be some cool stuff for all participants.
So between race, classes, feats, etc everything for these characters would be from the Core Book only? Just double checking... :)
You are correct. I'll post additional details regarding character creation (like point buy, etc.) when the lottery results come out. I'll also have on hand the pregen characters that come included with the module in case anyone who gets in this event either doesn't see this or doesn't have time to make a character. The pregens are standard Core.

And I appreciate it, thank you!
Finished watching Girls und Panzer because of Shirobako (same director). I found it surprisingly fun. I wasn't sure about it because of it's ridiculous premise- a high school girls WW2 tank fighting club but they way they so straightfaced played that concept really sold it for me. It's the type of quirky anime they'd make in Shirobako. Available subtitled on Crunchyroll and Hulu.
Aww, man, I didn't realize tonight was the last night (I was assuming 12 episodes). Oh well, I guess I'll have to break out the good stuff when I watch it tonight in honor of Aqua.
Finished watching Shirobako on Crunchyroll- an anime about making anime. Really enjoyed it- fun and light and a pretty interesting insight into all the work that goes into making anime. Definitely recommend it if you like slice of life stuff. Started binge watching the available shows ofShowa Genroku Rakugo Shinju- another slice of life about rakugo also playing on Crunchyroll. Very good as well.
No one's talking about the last episode of Gate?
I quite enjoyed the battle with the dragon. The disposable elves getting eaten and breathed on, the wizard using magic to impale it with swords, and then blowing the whole thing up with C4!- reminded me a bit of Kingmaker campaign since introducing the Technology Guide.
Also, Crunchyroll guest passes (and watch Erased!)
Agreed (and really enjoying this Winter Season).
One way to play a lot of games at a con is to run a lot of games. I really enjoyed running a game at last year's PaizoCon and I'm itching to run some more. I also have a bunch of other RPGs that I never get to play that I'd like to run.
I definitely plan on submitting the Terror in the Colonies adventure I ran last year (a 3rd level Pathfinder adventure set in the Shadows over Vathak campaign setting).
Beyond that, I'm also interested in submitting as an event 2-3 of the following games.
Silhouette of a Shadow (my 1st level Pathfinder SoV adventure published by Fat Goblin Games).
These games will be submitted as lottery events. Just curious to see what interest is out there for games and what people would like to put in for.
And the fun shows. Great Work, John.
Thanks for the review and I'm glad you enjoyed it! As you mentioned in your review, I definitely strive to not only make the village interesting and flavorful but also to provide the GM with enough seeds/plot hooks to easily expand into full adventures.
There's a certain Rise of the Runelord mini- forget the name (a roguish human male dualwielding a rapier and dagger) that Snaps just loves to grab and carry off with her. Luckily, he is fairly common in the set.
Snaps has also trained my gaming group to feed her treats. She's shy, so the vet recommended giving her treats when strangers came over. Well, my friends come over every other week and always sit in the same place. Since Phil was closest to the treats, I had him give them to her. Now, when they show up, she comes over multiple times for treats and, of course, gets them. She does let people pet her a little bit, so it's working.
Cool and thanks- those are all ones I designed!

Cool, thanks for the info.
One of Gundam model kits came with an advertisement for a bunch of newly released blueray boxed sets that seem to line up with what Rightstuf is releasing (Zeta, Victory). Also, it mentions Stardust Memory, so I'm hoping that comes to the US as well.
Freehold DM wrote:
Is Victory any good? My only familiarity with it is two characters from the Gundam Warriors 3 video game.
Found this older article about Rightstuf and their Gundam releases. I'm very happy to read about Zeta- Netflix didn't have the last ten episodes so I watched the movies which have a different ending. ZZ is interesting as I haven't read good things about that series even though it's set in the UC. Reviews say it's such a different tone (more light-hearted). But UC Gundam, so I'll get it. I hope they'll eventually do Char's Counterattack.
Freehold DM wrote:
Yeah, still haven't seen Char's Counterattack cuz the prices are crazy and Netflix is spotty with the Gundam they have in stock (and half the time the discs I get are old and cracked). I did get a good price on the Zeta movies but looks like the price has gone up on Amazon. UC isn't so bad with the DVDs but the blurays swing from expensive to crazy expensive.
Rented Mobile Suit Gundam Origins II this weekend. It was pretty good but I liked 1 better. This one focused on Artesia/Sayla primarily, so less action- felt more like a filler episode between 1 and and 3 (which I'm guessing based on the the timeline, will definitely have more action). Lots of little cameos in this 2, though. I also hope we get a lower priced State side DVD or Bluray instead of the $100 "collectible" one.

Thanks for the review and glad you enjoyed it! Creighton and I both wanted it to have a classic pulp feel to the empire as well. I read a complete Howard's Conan collection before even attempting to write this.

For those of you with Netflix streaming only- it recently added Durarara!! and the 1st half of Durarara X2!!. It's got quite a bit of everything in it but I enjoy it quite a bit.
I lied slightly- Netflix has the 1st cour of Durarara x2!!. Cour 2 just finished and I didn't realize there is a third cour airing next year.
For some reason, the van of some minor characters has the characters from The Irregular at Magic High School painted on the side. Not sure w hat the connection is. There's also a cardboard cut-out in the beginning that looks suspiciously like Holo (I think there's also some other in jokes by the same two otaku characters).

Just saw this! Thanks for the review and kind words. This one pulled from a lot of childhood memories and experiences spent on a certain fogbound island where I did pace the widow walks, visit whaling museums, and read books on the local hauntings. And thank you to Raging Swan Press for letting me write something with such a heavy dose of New England horror in it.
Also, I'm glad you pointed this out-
I've been meaning to do a blog on designing for the village backdrops but you hit the nail on the head- one of the key elements to a good village backdrop, for me, is to present at least 2-3 complications with the appropriate NPCs and locations so that a GM could essentially use the village as a short adventure.
A lot of my approach now to these village backdrops is based on reading a lot more "rules-lite" and story driven, narrative RPGs where the GM is encouraged to wing it and develop the plot based on the PCs actions and what they find interesting. So, I'm very happy you picked up how I tried to incorporate that design philosophy into the village (which means I did it right!). My next village backdrop is very much not horror but keeps the same design principles in mind.
An indie film company is slated to do a Colour Out of Space adaption-
What Lovecraft story (besides Guillermo's maybe someday At the Mountains of Madness) would you like to see adapted for the big screen (if any)?
Even though my Kingmaker campaign is on the last AP volume, yeah, I'm going to have to throw one some templates or class levels on this monster and send a bunch of them after the PCs. Love the imagery and the feel of this one- kind of like a lower-CR wendigo (a nice monster but at its CR, more than likely won't get as used as a hollow one). Nice job!
