What happens if the PCs (who have a thriving business in Riddleport) tell Kwava "No"? (This is a reference his plea on page 8-9.)

Given the likely "neutral" alignments of characters from Riddleport (remember the campaign traits), the adventure has neither "pull" (inducement to go) nor "push" (compulsion to go) to get them to leave for Crying Leaf.

Yes. One must not unify the heads.

So, right now, the Zola head has taken a hit with the loss of the Insight Carriers.

But the Strucker head is gaining strength.

Anyway, my current impression is that Hydra might not be terribly unified right now, so I question whether it has a single leader. This is based on the ending of Winter Soldier as well as last nights AOS episode

This makes sense. It is a negative consequence of two heads growing to replace the one cut off. Hydra will become more and more fragmented.

the cloning of Thor was the single dumbest thing they had Reed Richards do... a close second is the shipping of Hulk to Planet Hulk

Edit: hmmm... a Marvel Team-Up featuring Thor and Hulk seeking revenge on Reed Richards

HULK: "Goldielocks, hold THIS!" (hulk hands the foot of Reed Richards to thor, takes the other foot, and jumps far, FAR AWAY!!!!!!!!!)

I think we can, easily, agree that this was the worst story-line that MARVEL has ever written. (Not a small accomplishment when your canon includes One More Day.)

One of the ironies is that Iron Man was "canonically" correct. This was why the fire fighters tackled Captain America in the final issue.

I do find it interesting that Fury was able to touch the tesseract without harm.

But, my impression was that the cube killed the Red Skull, especially since Hugo Weaving has expressed his disinterest in reprising the role.

I actually like what they are doing with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. better then The Winter Soldier.

While AoS doesn't have the huge effects budget, the writers have more time to be subtle.

Because of the time limitation, they had to expose the conspiracy too quickly - robbing it of its punch.

Spoiler:
The data file being encrypted by "Nick Fury" in such a way that Nick Fury could not decrypt it was pretty blatant.

"Obviously?"

Just because something is obvious to you, does not mean that others will see it your way.

I'm talking about sheer weight of canonical evidence, not my mere opinion.

No one's saying that the "powerful aliens" idea hasn't been postulated. I acknowledged it myself. But the overwhelming majority of material speaks of the Asgardians, Olympians, et al., as gods, and they've performed actions that only the gods can.

So ... yes, "obviously" is accurate.

The cinematic universe clearly espouses a different paradigm, and I certainly wouldn't discount the possibility of the comics ret-conning Thor into the scion of extraterrestrials.

You are factually correct, the Godhood of the Asgardians is established in the comics from the very first issues, all the way back to Journey into Mystery #83. (Thor's divine status is surprising due to the Comics Code Authority - in full effect at the time.)

However, you asserted your viewpoint without providing facts - which would have been comic references in this case. This presumed a familiarity with the character's publication history which is not always present.

    Did you realize that the film actually fails the Bechdel Test?

    1 - At least two named female characters - Natasha Romanoff and Maria Hill. (Pass)
    2 - That talk to each other. (Questionable. They are part of a larger conversation in the bunker.)
    3 - About something other then a man. (Fail. While they briefly discuss balistics, that part is so short that it is really about Nick Fury.)

    Given the strong, smart, capable women in the film, I was shocked that it actually failed in this measure.

    The Eagle Knights (especially the Grey Corsairs and the Twilight Talons) is a good idea.

    The Black Eagles are too localized to be a good Hydra analog.

    Possibly.

    I was thinking a more covert faction of the Church of Asmodeus or/and Zon-Kuthon. (The methods fit Norgorbor, but not the goals.)

    I know that the Hellknights think of themselves as "S.H.I.E.L.D." but I am not sure that it fits (even after "outed" in the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D. is still too covert in its methods for the Hellknights.)

    RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

    I am Shocked that this hasn't been done yet.

    How would you convert the core characters from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?

    My first guess would be:

  • Antoine Triplett - LG Ranger/Rogue (with Ranks in Heal)
  • Jemma Simmons - NG Druid? (Handles all the bio-science)
  • Leopold Fitz - LG Wizard (Handles all the physical science)
  • Melinda May - LN Monk/Rogue
  • Phil Colson - LG Cavalier (was Order of the Lion)
  • Skye - CG Aasimar Bard (My best guess on how to simulate her internet abilities)

    And

  • John Garrett - NE Cavalier (need a more evil Order)
  • Grant Ward - LE Ranger/Rogue/Assassin

    Would the Hellknights be a good stand in for S.H.I.E.L.D.?
    (with the Church of Asmodeus for Hydra?)

  • RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

    Does Golarion have a good "stand in" for S.H.I.E.L.D.?

    What about HYDRA? Hail HYDRA!

    As directed above by Mr. Keith, I have waited an additional week.

    Still no shipment.

    What can be done at this point?

    I do not know if I would like dragon's in every encounter for a year of the Dragon but if all linked together, it could lead to a whole new stand alone lvl 12 module where we have to kill some huge dragon with the season ender being the set up where we have to kill another ancient dragon and in doing so, find access to a forgotten stronghold.

    Actually, a "Year of the Dragon" could also justifiably deal with the results of an Ancient Dragon appearing and displacing the residents of a stronghold. If the humanoids displaced were already a "hostile" type, such as (Orcs, Ogres, Giants) then their forced migration would send further shock-waves that would produce more scenarios.

    Imagine the race to reclaim that stronghold if it were on the edge of Belkzen, near Lastwall.

  • Lower and middle level characters would deal with the displaced orcs;
  • Higher level characters would try to explore and reclaim parts of the stronghold;
  • A Level 12 scenario would deal with the dragon itself;
  • The season ender could deal the dispute between the Dwarves (the original owners) and the Lastwall Crusaders (seeking a strategic foothold) with the Pathfinder Society caught in the middle.

    I've visualized some great T-shirts for this. I'm assuming the focus will be on exploring Jormunder and some parts of the Silver Mount. So with the exception of the first suggestion, the others cover both of these focus areas.

    Wouldn't it be cool if they named the PFS "year" for the Second AP, rather then the first?

I'm guessing they just didn't consider how female potential con attendees would perceive it. But as a female nerd that is attracted to other females, that ad is still not appealing to me. If they were running a similar ad with male cheesecake to appeal to female gamers and gay male gamers, I'd have any easier time accepting their marketing campaign's "cheekiness."

    Actually, most male gamers would find it funny. But, this is because men don't have to deal with the ubiquitous objectification that women do.
