Possible. They may let it influence the timing.

Even without the movies, none of those were going to be permanent (Well maybe the Avengers, I missed that one, but I doubt it.)

I dont know where he got that Avengers thing from either and I've been reading the main Avengers books (AVENGERS and NEW AVENGERS) consistently for maybe about 10 years now.

He might be talking about Steve being mad at Tony for inadvertently setting the stage for Norman Osbourne to take over SHIELD or Tony's involvement in the superhero Civil War. And Thor was pissed at Tony for making a clone of Thor and using that clone to fight (and in one case murder) their friends during and after the Superhero Civil War.

Whatever beefs they had with one another were settled during the Avengers: Prime mini series.

Of course more recently Tony (and few others) have gone and done something else pretty bad to piss off Steve...

Yeah mostly talking about all the stuff that happend during civil war.

I recon it will last till either the 3rd Thor film or Third Avengers.

Maybe. It might not be reflected in the movies at all.

That may depend on how it's received.

What I meant was since the marvel films started when anything bad/big change happens to them they always change back in time for the next movie

Exampes include

Captain America (Steve rogers) being dead
Thor being dead
the big three of the avengers refusing to work with each other ever again
Spiderman (Peter parker) being essentially dead and replaced with Doc ock.
For a while in the comics the xmen wearing there movie version of costumes (Admitadly they dont really let the movies influence x-men comics anymore)

Seem to recall it being said that they tried to work out a Dragon themed Ap but ended up giving up on the idea when they couldent get it to work the way they wanted.

Well gave it another try and now find it even more depressing since to put it bluntly I find members of this group kind of off putting. Really not a fan if these are the ones that avoid dying.

Uh maybe I'm just showing utter naivity here but is it possible that it hasent been shot down and instead crashed for some unrelated reaspn?

Cheliax

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Would be more excited if I thought it would last more than between either a few months or a couple of years at best.

Wearing clothing that exposes your midriff does not mean that you're trying to be sexy.

Outstanding my favorite so far by a mile.

If it's about the kickstarter well I hold Goblinworks and more specificly Ryan dancy accountable for that rather than Paizo.

(Seriously moment I knew he was involved I had a feeling it will be a disaster why I only put in money for the Emerald spire and thornkeep Pdf's)

Cheliax

I'll be honest I dont have any intrest going to another message board.

Wonder if the new classes will get playtest versions

Cheliax

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So have licenses for the new edition been revealed or is this defaulting to OGL (Think thats the one you can default to.) Also any chance of any of this stuff being made into a pahfinder version down the line?

Cheliax

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hmmm not sure how I feel about this entire Pathfinder unchained Idea to be honest.

Cheliax

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I would think Lini will end up with the least tech amount of stuff among them.

Cheliax

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

do things like cameras exist in Golarion (Thinking really old old versions?)

Here's a question for the 12-part AP crew:

Why do we need a 12-part Adventure Path? I mean, if you really want to continue to level 20, the APs offer suggestions for GMs to expand upon. You can also buy a high-level module to play for levels 17+ and "finish" the game with that.

So really, what is the point? Why should Paizo risk alienating customers who might not like the 12-part AP's storyline and opt out of buying it? After a year, why should customers return?

If you want a 12-part AP, look to a secondary publisher for that, or make one yourself and sell it according to Paizo's terms as PDF files.

That's the problem with long discussion threads.

All the reasons for requesting a 12-part AP are described in my original post. In a few words what I request is more space for the authors to expand their ideas. I don't want to reach higher levels, I want to stop seeing glaring plot holes / omissions just because the adventure reached the page count limit.

For example, Wrath of the Righteous had the potential to have the most stunning opening scene ever created for an AP, the fall of Kenabres. Yet, the scene is missing. I created one myself (whom I consider as a mediocre storyteller) and still, after several months, my players refer to that scene as "excellent". Imagine what their reaction would have been if the scene was created by a professional writer, one who had actually envisioned the scene in order to base the adventure on it.

So... why was this scene missing? My best guess revolves around one and only one possible reason: Page Count. Period.

So, you're asking why am I requesting larger APs? There you have it! :)

Actually I think you will find the supposed missing scene is not missing at all and had nothing to do with pagecount and more How do we have this event with the storm king and god knows how many cr 10 + creatures leveling the city without getting the level 1 characters killed.

These solar freakin road panels have about 20 christmas lights on each of them, and I imagine they won't look like much when the sun is up.

Actually (and I could be could be wrong about all this) I think the slightly off proportion thing is supposed to be true of all gnomes It's just really difficult to pull off in artwork.

I'm kinda saddened that things like this. I mean, Erastil is no longer sexist and now this.

Basically, things being un pc create plot points, tension irony and grit; all those things which help to make for good story, and good RP. Basically you're bowderizing your creations because it has nasty, uncomfortable, unsafe parts. Just like the original Bowdler did to Shakespeare's plays.

That is very sad.

to be fair this is less about being Pc and more Not how the character was intended to be.

Meh I put this in the same idea catagory as those shows that insisted we would be living on colonies on the moon by now. Interesting idea but I'll believe it when I see it.

Well read it and not a huge fan to be honest. Also dont really like how it seems to be spoilering a module (Even if it was a free one.)

Them accusing you as failing as a Dm is no diffrent than you accusing the desighners of failing.

Kind of suprised Penny arcade has made so little.

4 players Not super optimisers but not entirly none optimisers either (For example ranger took favored enemy demon and improved it every chance he got but at the same time ran around with a two bladed sword)

Party was shifter (later skinwalker) Fighter (crossbowman) focusing on repeater after lvl 3 or so.

Human ranger demon hunter who used twin blade

Asimir Paladin Who went sword and board

And lastly a Gnome Magus who's favored tactic became using force punch on things.

Ive completed the Adventure path and to be fair it is a very good Ap (IMO) and while yes while it does have problems I dont think it is all directly due to mythic rules alone (More a combination of things such as problems with high lvl play, the fact you get a lot of extra stuff besides the mythic at points, general encounter design and tactics and also the fact the books were being worked on while the mythic rules werent fully finished.)

In all honesty not much Book 5 was probably the lowpoint (Did change the final boss encounter for that one a fair bit.) but besides that most of the books went fine.
