Wrath of the Righteous has a few... strange spots.

The Midnight Isles (book 4) isn't bad, but it's weird, given the context of the rest of the campaign. After slaying demons and building a holy stronghold in the middle of a ruined landscape, the players go and treat with an exceptionally cosmopolitan demon city. It's not the worst, it's just... irrelevant to the plot. As a story, it would have fit far better with being a corrupted Sarkoris city IN the Worldwound itself - not some strange planar area completely unrelated to the main plot.

City of Locusts (book 6) is atrocious. As endings go, it is hands-down the worst of any AP. You don't fight Deskari (the demon lord who rules the worldwound) because it's "beyond the scope of this adventure"; you don't actually do anything with the City of Locusts, i.e. the conquered capitol of old Sarkoris; the only things you do is faff about in a demon brothel with some inexplicably mythic-level, murderous succubi-prostitutes (who are also drug dealers!), followed by solving the "mystery" of the origins of the worldwound (which isn't a mystery because everyone already knows how it originated; this subquest just fills in some of the particulars like "it wasn't just in may, but may FIFTH that the worldwound formed! wow!). It ends with fighting some succubus queens, then another BIGGER succubus queen, after fighting some other succubus queens.

Considering that The Ivory Labyrinth (book 5) ends on the incredible high note of slaughtering a demon lord in the middle of his own stronghold, City of Locusts is unbelievable in... just how much of a let-down it is. It's been almost a year and I'm still very bitter about it :(

Uh you do fight Deskari?

Following on from that question for such a theoretical game would you prefer new characters made just for the game, A choice of several of the current Iconics, A way to just make random characters or perhaps a combination/mix of the above?

James how doable/desirable would it be to do a video game based on one (or perhaps several) of the Adventure paths (Like how there was a video game version of temple of elemental evil?)

I've made no bones that I thought several of the classes released in the ACG were poorly thought out and were very OP to the extent that a few of the core/base classes have now almost been made redundant.

Character concepts could have been far more easily achieved with simply providing more archetypes and tweaks through feats.... with the added benefit that classes were enriched rather than eradicated.

The question is.... in the future will we look back on the ACG as the point at which PF started on a downward spiral? Did character creation for the sake of character creation and profit hunger win out over common sense?

To make a long story short No

I'm amused by Kevin Mack's one-star review, based on the last panel of the story. "Pathfinder Origins" is a SIX-part story. Stay tuned, is all I can say. :)

To be fair the inital hook that sets up the series made it sound like 6 stand alone tales. Also maybe ive miss read the final panel but that seemmed to indicate Amiri in the comics present so I can only assume the last book is some sort of tie all the loose threads together in the present type affair.

So in the meantime review removed.

Using that logic, why not just make mystic theurge "ability to cast both arcane and divine spells"? Then anyone could play one starting at level three. Would that make the class "not suck" as many seem to indicate?

Funnily enough thats what I allowed a player to do for mummy's mask (A oracle/sorceror/mythic theluge) Seemed to work really well.

Soooo uh after seeing whats happend in the first issue I'm somewhat less sure I want to see what happens to any more of the Iconics now

Spoiler:
Really hope there are plans to resolve the entire Amiri is possesed thing very quickly. Also really hope none of the others have it go as badly as that. (For some reason I'm finding the entire treatment of Amiri in that one mildly uncomfortable)

Is the removal of the items from the appendix a permanent thing or just for this issue. going to be pretty disapointed if it's a permanent change.

Besides that awesome first part.

Rather interesting to see that Lini is one of the characters (Since impression I got was her appearence in Issue 4 (Least I think it was 4) Was the first time any of the group had met her. (Side note would be really nice to make her a more permanent character somehow)

Hi James I notice you worked on red hand of doom Which I'm currently updating to a home game and Ive hit a bit of a conundrum with the character of the Ghostlord since I dont think the blighter presitge class is currently in pathfinder and with druids not able to cast create undead (Which I assume was because of the prestige class) I was wondering if you had a suggestion on a possible alternative to building him?

Also any suggestions on what to replace greenspawn razorfiends with?

Thanks for your time

Kurshu is a unique creature published only in this scenario unless I am mistaken.

Edit: And I am indeed mistaken!

Yeah she's from the Shatterd star adventure path Bestiary in the issue which has the god she's a herald of article in it. So basically a monster that was not desighned with PFS in mind at all.

Here is a quote from the GM who ran the Scenario in response to "Run As Written does not absolve you of taking responsibility for making that choice."

"The scenario author gave a very intelligent creature a limited wish. That may well be problematic scenario design but there is nothing in the rules that prevents it from being used this way."

Responding directly to the GM in question.

"The fact you CAN do something does not mean you SHOULD. You still made the choice to run the scenario that way. The fact that the author left that option available doesn't change the burden of responsibility."

Also if the monster is the one I think it is the author did not give the monster the abilities due to it being a premade monster from another book.

Also keep in mind, that Seoni doesn't battle on the front line. It's worth noting that in the Pathfinder comic, at least in the initial issues, she's the leader of that merry band.

Also none of them come across as the brightest of people so yeah can see why she would think wearing it was a good idea.

Broken does not have to mean OP. It can mean does not work properly. The mythic levels are supposed to be equal to one character level, but in play many people said they feel like 1.5 character levels which adds up, and does make them broken in the "not working properly" sense.

Actually there treated as only 0.5 of a lvl when they should vary from 1 to 1.5 lvl's

To be fair the way it happend in the book always came across as a bit of a deus ex mechanica to me Bard pretty much only appears about half a chapter (if that) before slaying Smaug and the entire thing with the Thrush was pretty much a "Oh and also he can understand bird speak."

I'm away from my books ATM though, so care to elaborate?

Well in it there is a mention of a resistence movement on the island made up of people that have fled into the forest and/or those deemed unsuitable by the dragon.

Also the way the orb being given away in the book is presented in a more threataning tone than in previous mentions of it.

To be fair I thought it worked well at first as well but after starting to dm a second group through it with a party that is far from optimised I have to say yeah Mythic on the players end is pretty broken (Still seems to work okay on the Dm side of things going by the mythic monsters ive seen in Iron gods and Mummy's mask.

Also to an extent it seems like a potential no win situation to me they pull the movie get called spineless cowards if they go through with it and in the unlikely case something does happen they get called reckless and putting profit before people's lives.

I really do have high hopes that Unchained will help the rogue considerably. I'm not sure what they will do to fix it, but I am waiting patiently to see.

I am however confused about why the barbarian is getting a revamp. The barbarian is probably the strongest class that doesn't get to cast spells. With Beast Totem and Come and Get Me rage powers he is a face wrecking force of doom. And with Spell Sunder he's great at removing magical problems.

It's not a power level issue as I understand it, but a wonky mechanics one. Specifically, I heard (somewhere) that they were unhappy with the 'Barbarians fall unconscious and die due to lost Rage HP' thing, and are having them gain temporary hit points instead. So...I suspect it's stuff like that.

Or maybe what I heard was completely wrong.

I wonder how much of that is true, though... After seeing so many needless nerfs to martial options, I'm not discarding the possibility that that's just the excuse they are using to nerf Barbarians.

I'm not really sure how this book could be a nerf when the stuff in the core rulebook will still be there (and as far as I know wont be getting replaced with this stuff.)
