Master of the Fallen Fortress can be modified to fit anyplace, and doesn't require Pathfinder status. It can also be made more in depth by placing a few Easter Eggs related to your AP campaign inside, or shortened by removing some of the one-off encounters.

It's also free...

I like it.

Spoiler:
You could even replace the young troglodytes with ratfolk scrappers (Fires of Creation, p. 47), and Tuloc with a scrapwall fanatic (Fired of Creation, p. 46). Possibly replace Tasskar and Snapjaw with a fully operational Collector Robot (Fires of Creation, p. 84) - and the object of the ratfolk's raid.

For bonus ...

Spoiler:
Replace Balenar Forsend with Sanvil Trett - just to twist the knife a little more when he eventually turns on the heroes.

Three issues ...

  • Master of the Fallen Fortress also presumes that the heroes know each other.
  • If you track experience, then it will throw off the progression.
  • Could such a structure logically be sited nearby Torch?

    It's not about the challenge of the viewer to see it, but the network to have it seen at airtime.

    Ratings don't tend to include DVR viewings. (If that is even being tracked, it would represent a whole other issue in its invasion of privacy.) And while there are other metrics available to gauge various levels of "success," (like how well something is trending in social media,) initial views at airtime are what networks consider the most valuable in terms of gauging how successful a show is. It's part of what they use to attract advertisers and be in a position to sell airtime for more money.

    As far as Supernatural, yeah, they aren't as likely to pick up that many new viewers on their own. BUT with the Flash on before it, it is not unlikely that they will get some carryover of those viewers, which is probably why they strategically scheduled that way.

    SHIELD had announced its fall schedule before Flash did after all.

    S.H.I.E.L.D. better make the most of that two week head start!

    So, if issue #100 is going to be a little longer than normal in the adventure department, what will is the projected level range of this AP? I know that it is in the air until the books enter final development, but I am curious. Most APs lately have been going 1-17 but with more pages might we go higher? I assume we won't get the page space to go 1-20 but perhaps 18 or 19? Alternatively, since this is an urban-focused AP with lots of room for role-playing, I would be really happy with a robust AP that only went 1-15 or 1-17.

    The predicted level range won't change. "A little longer" is not enough to add a level. It'll probably go from 1st to 17th or so, just as most of our APs do.

    We'll see.

    Really, this would have been a great candidate for Mythic.

    For Hell's Rebels, player characters should not be allies of Thrune. Doing so will either...

    1) Result in interparty strife and PVP, or

    2) Result in everyone being cranky that they're playing the exact wrong AP.

    I suspect paladins in Skull & Shackles would be a less disruptive choice than Thrune Agent PCs in Hell's Rebels.

    Thrune Agent PCs should play in Council of Thieves. Aside from the first adventure, it would not be horrible difficult to adapt the AP - as long as they are unhappy with the Shadow Beast problem.

    If the setting were one where magic was super rare and obscure (like, say, it is in Game of Thrones), then yes, a feat like that would make sense to me/ I wouldn't call it "Mage." I'd call it something like "Magical Studies" or the like, but yes.

    And if said campaign world had one region that had magic front and center as an exception, many of the NPCs who lived in there would gain the feat as a bonus feat as an advantage for being an NPC in the region, and I would set up the player's guide for that AP to give players some ways to get some of the benefits of the feat as a trait.

    Baseline Pathfinder/Golarion is not that setting, so that feat doesn't exist.

    In other words, if this was a "Space Opera" version of Pathfinder (say Star Wars) then technologist would be unneeded (or have a very different meaning).

    This is going to replace the rogue class along with the Investigator. Rogue is done as far as I'm concerned. Fighter probably done too. Then again no one played a rogue in our campaigns and the fighter was pretty rare as well.

    As noted above, some of the archetypes also obsolesced the Rogue. But, I do agree, the are going the way of the dodo.

    I think that the Fighter still has a place in the game. I could be wrong though.

    Question would Brawler be a better fit then Barbarian?

    While you lose the rage, you gain the base punch damage. The player could then take "Catch Off Guard" as their first level feat which simulates the way that (from the movies) Hulk actually fights.

    Why do you think that the police in the U.S. are being so heavily militarized?
    Because the people supplying the police are idiots who didn't learn their lesson from Iraq and Afghanistan.

    I have a different theory. The people in charge (the 1%) did learn from history - the French Revolution to be exact. So, they are doing two things to suppress the coming revolt.

    -- Militarize the police.
    -- Separate the Police and the Military from the general population.

    Thus the military and the police will be strong enough and willing to crush the uprisings from the starving masses. This goes back to allowing the then unneeded workers to die off since there is no work, but if you don't work, you don't eat.

    I'll say this: I find the complete implausibility of characters like Batman to be more jarring than the outright impossibliity of characters like Thor or Spider-Man.

    Let's take a look at Batman....

    He apparently has near infinite amounts of money. At least enough where he can affort to purchase millions and millions of dollars worth of equipment, and keep said purchases utterly secret.

    One wonders how he can keep up the facade of a playboy billionaire, given that he apparently spends ALL of his free time training / fighting crime / memorizing useless s!*! in case the Riddler has a riddle that uses said useless s~+@.

    Not to mention the fact that he survived Darkseid's Omega Sanction for no other g$%%~~n reason than the fact that he's Batman.

    Pretty much I'm going with Spidey being far less ridiculous. Yeah, his powers are impossible, but at least he's a actual human person underneath the mask. Batman's the most ridiculous Mary Sue that's ever gained widespread acceptance.

    I in general much prefer the second stringers in the DC universe than the main characters.

    Really? Big Superman fan here. (And, you're right. Even the Kryptonian is more human then Batman.)

    In this case, the Player's Guide is telling you that the Technic League will be a foe from the get-go. Which means that building a character at first level with a goal of joining the technic league at high level will not work in the AP, in a similar manner to making a character for WotR with a goal of "become Dreskari's right-hand man and get promoted to Nascent Demon Lord".

    Like many evil (or even just non-good) organizations, the membership of the Technic League don't seem terribly loyal to each other.

    And so, it might be completely on-theme for a self-starting young recruit to betray his superiors plans in hopes of having all that sweet, sweet Numerian tech to himself. :)

    I think I get what they mean with this.

    While the Player's Guide says that the AP makes no presumptions about PC alignment, they also point out that plot-line works better for characters that are willing to help out.

    In short, evil characters (the type most willing to join the Technic League) will have greater difficulty being part of the story.
