Where was the glimpse of 1,000 year old Maz Kanata?
True. That was, of course, rather famously the reason Lucas wrote the whole Han encased in carbonite thing - Ford told them he wanted to be killed off so he didn't have to come back for the next movie. The carbonite thing was Lucas's way of hedging his bets in case he could later convince Ford to reconsider.
All very interesting, if the current rumors are at all true ...
Kylo Ren (and most likely Rey as well) are the children of Han and Leia - remember Leia is also a Skywalker, so, if the rumors are correct, it explains why Kylo Ren is obsessed with Vader, his grandfather. Supposedly, Han somehow confronts Kylo at some point, possibly in an attempt to buy time while his friends escape from a ship, and tries to make amends with his son. An enraged Kylo kills Han with his light saber in what would be quite a dramatic (and very consistently Star Wars) moment, which then spurs on the big final act of the film ... and most likely sets the stage for the next film.
Like I said, if this is at all true, it would be a VERY dramatic (and very consistently Star Wars) moment in the movie.
I too prefer to use a screen to hide the dice rolls as it allows me to fudge if I need to. But I don't think I have more than once or twice. I let the chips fall where they may.
So ... do you prefer horizontal (landscape orientation) or vertical (portrait orientation) GM screens?
Our GM uses three clear plastic clipboards taped together. The clips are on the outside. He tapes the needed tables on the inside and clips important info for us on the outside. Most of the time he keeps the middle one open.
So ... can we assume they are vertical (since that was actually the question :)

Not an absurd reason at all! In fact, one of the things I'm most proud of with Kobold Press is how much time, effort (and, yes, $$$) we put into top-quality art. We use many of the same artists that Paizo and Wizards uses, and I work extremely hard to make sure the art in a KP product is as awesome as possible.
I think the art in books like Southlands, Deep Magic, and the upcoming 5E Tome of Beasts (since you mentioned monster books) will attest to that :)
Check out the popular Spell-less Ranger class in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press. I suspect it might be just what you are looking for.
There's even an archetype called the Companion-Bound Ranger, which receives his companion from the Druid list and levels with the Ranger like a Druid’s companion does.
The New Paths Compendium also has a number of feats specifically designed to both improve your animal companion and make it more interesting. The Companion-Bound Spell-less Ranger gets some of those as bonus feats, incidentally.
You can check the book out here: New Paths Compendium
Just a reminder ...
The deadline for Tome of Beasts Backer Monster Submission is THIS WEEKEND!
11:59 PM Pacific time, this Saturday, November 21 to be precise :)
For those of the 2,312 backers who'd like to see if their monster design might be one of the 20 printed in the book - there's still time to get your creature sent in!!! :)
Check out the Skin-Changer, an alternate of the popular Spell-less Ranger class in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press. I suspect this is what an earlier poster was referring to. The Skin-Changer would be *perfect* for what you are looking for!
Check it out here: New Paths Compendium
From Endzeitgeist's review:
Correct! That kind of debate is fine for another thread, but not here.
For some reason, I could have sworn there was some like a holy damage type, or sacred, divine etc. I know there is a sacred bonus, but for some reason I was thinking there was a corosponding damage type.
I may well have been thinking of the kind of wishy washy wording of flame strike ...
Deep Magic from Kobold Press has a very cool section on living/intelligent spellbooks! It give rules and guidelines for their creation AND a number of examples.
In fact, I liked that section so much, I used to add an intelligent/living spellbokk, the Shadow Grimoire, to my Shadows of the Dusk Queen adventure!
If you want to add living/intelligent spellbooks to your game, I HIGHLY suggest you check out Deep Magic!
I missed this one before it closed. Any way to get am order in?
Hey there Ellestil!
Do you mean an order for the main, physical items: The Tome of Beasts, Book of Lairs and/or the 300 printed pawns for example ... or do you mean get in on the Kickstarter itself (with all the cool PDF extras, ability to submit a monster for possible inclusion in the Tome of Beasts etc)?
Just popping in to say that LOTS of cool stuff is happening with the Advanced Races Compendium! The glorious, full color hard cover book is in the printer's hands now and we're waiting on proofs. Things like the Character Codex are clicking along nicely (the art for this is really cool by the way) ... you might even see a preview of the cover in an upcoming Kickstarter Update.
Can't wait for folks to get this bad boy in their hands!!!
If you didn't jump on the Kickstarter, you can still preorder over at the Kobold store: Advanced Races Compendium Print + PDF Preorder now!
Brinebeast, I'm not the Kobold-In-Chief, but with the amazing success of the Tome of Beasts kickstarter, I think the likelihood of a Pathfinder RPG version of the Tome of Beasts has increased considerably!
Speaking of the Tome of Beasts kickstarter, this is it - the Final 2 Hours!
Update since yesterday ...
Final 2 Hours!!!
Sound the alarms, beat the social media drums!!!
2,215 backers and counting!!!
Prepared Encounters PDF now added to the loot backers will receive
If we can get to 2,300 backers, a Mystery Goal is revealed
If we can get to $190,000, the Temple of the Deep Ones lair and map gets added to the Book of Lairs.
If we can get to 2,500 backers, 5 Eldrich and Demonic maps and lairs get added.
With 2 hours left, these are still very doable - spread the word! Every new backer, even backers joining for a $1, gets us closer to those backer goals!
Of course, glad to help!
I'd have to check on the specific artists, but suffice it to say we have top-notch artists on this project and the art is just awesome!
Hey there raphaelus! First post! Welcome to the Paizo forums!
Monster submissions will actually not open until sometime after the Kickstarter ends, at which time I'm sure full details will be provided! At this point, it's just cool to know that EVERY backer will get the chance to submit if they want!
As to your specific question, I'm guessing there will be a fair amount of latitude given - so if someone is really good at complete monster design, great! If some one has a cool concept but isn't as comfortable with the nuts and bolts, I suspect that will be ok too :)
The Tome of Beasts Kickstarter ends TODAY!!!
Update since YESTERDAY ...
2,121 backers and counting!!!
Latest Update What You Get for $90 which includes a fantastic graphic showing the wagon-load of awesomeness you get!
I'm a HUGE Star Trek fan, and I would love to see a new Star Trek Series on TV. But not on yet another freaking pay network! Put this on actual network television and I will happily watch every episode.
But, not CBS All Access. Not another pay service! No thanks!
It's a shame too, because otherwise, I'd be SUPER excited out this ..
This is It - Last Call !!! :)
The Tome of Beasts / Book of Lairs Kickstarter ends tomorrow (Tuesday) night! We've added 300 printed pawns, more lairs, and a TON of battle maps.
The project utterly SMASHED the previous Kobold Press Kickstarter record.
There is so much for folks to love here! Check out some recent updates ...
AND, we just added the Umbral Vampire's Castle lair by Jeff Grubb, with a battle map by Todd Gamble!
There's still time (but not TOO much time)! If you are not a backer, what are you waiting for? :) If you are, consider bumping up your pledge for even more awesomeness!!!
Abrams was only EVER directing this first new movie. The plan was always for other directors to do the subsequent films. Abrams is remaining involved as consultant and producer though, if I'm not mistaken, so he will still have a hand in the direction of the next movies
Has Hayden Christensen's involvement in a future Star Wars film actually been confirmed? As far as I know, that is just a rumor ...
This is It - Last Call !!! :)
The Tome of Beasts Kickstarter ends tomorrow (Tuesday) night! We've added printed pawns, more lairs, monster audio, and a wealth of battle maps. The Tome now contains more than 350 monsters and the number's still climbing--and the project utterly SMASHED the previous Kobold Press Kickstarter record.
There is so much for 5E fans to love here! Check out some recent updates ...
And then check out the final stretch goals! There's still time (but not TOO much time)! If you are not a backer, what are you waiting for? :) If you are, consider bumping up your pledge for even more awesomeness!!!
