Only a few days into the ARENA: FURY OF HELLAS Kickstarer and over 20% of the way to its goal. That's great! But, we need a lot more momentum! Word of mouth is the biggest way to achieve this, so please post, tweet, and talk about ARENA to your friends!.

And, if you haven't yet, please check out the ARENA: FURY OF HELLAS Kickstarterand jump in with a pledge :)

Paizo Classics (http://paizo.com/events/v5748mkg0biag) has two different event times listed between the title/schedule placement and the times listed in the event description.

Hi bdk86,

I'm looking at the event, and I see it listed both in the title and the description as being on Friday from 2pm - 6pm. Is it still showing up differently for you? If so, it might be best to send us a screenshot of what you're seeing to paizocon@paizo.com. Otherwise, whatever was causing that display error may have fixed itself.

Here's what it says for me:

Paizo Classics
Friday afternoon, 2:00–6:00 pm • Cascade 10

When PaizoCon 2016: Fri, May 27, 2016, 05:00 pm – 09:00 pm
Where DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel

I think bdk86 is right - the second time is automatically adjusting to viewer's timezone. Not sure if that's easily fixed, but as it is, it might cause confusion for folks when the Lottery starts ...

We recommend with lottery choices to be as honest as you can be with your selections. If you have multiple things per day that you desperately want to get into, rank them all highest.

OK, so ... just confirming ...

There are 282 events currently listed. For sake of this question, let's say there are 20 events that a person has some degree of interest in. That person goes in and gives those 20 events a value of 1-4, depending of level of interest. So far, so good.

What about those remaining 262 events? Should one do nothing with them, or is it best to go in and physically list each of those remaining 262 events as 0? If one does NOT do that and just gives 1-4 values to the 20 he is interested in, does that mean the lottery system might put that person in one of those 262 events that he gave no value to?

Thanks!!!

I'd also mention that being in a different country really doesn't pose much of a problem these days.

As a freelance writer, designer, and graphic artist, I've worked with 3 PP's in the both the US and abroad.

As a 3PP Art Director, I routinely work with artists and cartographers all over the world and it literally makes no difference where they are located

If you are in Seattle, try the teriyaki. It's been said that Seattle runs on coffee and teriyaki, and thus far, I have found this to be accurate.

If you are looking for Mexican, Southern, or BBQ, you are likely to be disappointed. (Though I have made it a personal mission to locate such places up here.)

So, where's the best (and closest) place to get good teriyaki?

Hey there!

If you are OK with non Paizo material, might I suggest checking out the Shaman class in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press

The New Paths Shaman might be just what you're looking for. It's based much more on the Druid and has an animal spirit guide which is very much more like an animal companion than a familiar

Non-spellcasting shapechanger. Barbarian/Druid/Lycanthrope? hybrid.

The game has a way to make almost any concept or trope work so far: S Holmes (Investigator, Master Spy), Captain America (Brawler Sheld dude), Achilles (Destined Bloodrager) etc. for example.

But there is no way to make a non-casting full BAB shapechanger.

If you are OK with non Paizo material, might I suggest checking out the Skin Changer in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press

The Skin Changer is an alternate of the popular Spell-less Ranger class, so it is indeed a full BAB, non-spellcasting shapechanger :)

From Endzeitgeist' review:
"The Spell-less ranger also gets a variant class herein, the skin-changer - this one's interesting: Learning to change into the forms and animals and specializes in better natural attacks. No animal companion, though, and a different list of talents. The skin-changer also gets natural armor etc. - per se a concept none too complex in what it tries to do, but remains very evocative in its versatile options - the variant class remains one of the more iconic ones I've seen and makes for a great addition - once again - fine work indeed!"

From a Drivethru RPG review
"There is also a variant that was released with this book called the Skin Changer and it is one that I have been wanting to try out so badly. This variant trades out the favored enemy, combat style, and animal companion of a Spell-less Ranger with the ability to essentially wild shape into animals that scales like a druid so it actually feels pretty balanced and a ton of fun if you are into playing a shifter without contracting a terrible were- disease."

I've found this class last week and have mulled it over since. This is probably the best incarnation of the arcane trickster concept we've seen so far for Pathfinder, especially since you don't have to wait several level for a Prestige Class or need to compromise with an archetype (is it just me or is it weird that the Magus doesn't have any real trickster archetypes except Stygian Striker?).

I'll definitely allow this class in my next game, hopefully one of my players is interested enough to give it a shot.

Thanks so much for your comments Antariuk! I'm really glad you like the class!!!

I'm also pleased that you recognized the various balancing elements built into the Tricksters spellcasting.

If you're so inclined, please consider posting an actual review (heck, your initial post could practically BE the review :)

Oh, as for additional Fortes ... excellent idea. I really want to keep the number of Fortes reasonably small, but one or two more is certainly doable. I already have what I think is an interesting new Trickster archetype written, when I have some time I'll start mulling over an additional Forte or two!

Hey everyone!

Kobold Press is very excited about their first foray into the world of card games! ARENA: FURY OF HELLAS is a fast, furious, and fun card game about Heroes and Monsters of Greek legends, fighting on behalf of the gods!

ARENA: FURY OF HELLAS is the first card game produced by award-winning game publisher Kobold Press. It’s a quick-fire game for 2 to 4 players where you take the part of the gods of Greek mythology, meddling in the fates and affairs of men and monsters alike for your own amusement.

The game features absolutely AMAZING artwork!

Click the link below to learn more about the just-launched Kickstarter. There are lots of cool stretch goals and extras, so be sure to spread the word!

You might take a look at the Battle Scion from Kobold Press for a full BAB, limited arcane spell access and a small set of interesting, flavorful special abilities

The Battle Scion is also one of the classes in the New Paths Compendium also from Kobold Press

I have yet to injure myself and I take full responsibility if I do. Slippers and bare feet are just con staples.

Not sure what Cons you frequent where bare feet are staples, but the Paizo folks and hotel folks just politely told you NOT to go bare foot in the public areas (actually kind of shocked such a statement even needs to be said)

Awesome post Liz!!!!

Liberty's Edge

Thank you good sir!

I'd love to see a few more reviews should you be so inclined :)

Liberty's Edge

Basically, there are a number of 'special events' each year that have limited seating. The most common are games run by a Paizo staffer or prominent 3PP. Some seminars might also have limited seating.

Since there might only be 5 or 6 spots open for a given 'special' game, and MANY more than that number who want to play, they do a lottery. You go in and throw your name in for any limited seating event you'd like to take part in. Then, they randomly pick for each such event to see who gets in. The entire thing is automated and very well run, so you can't get double-booked for example. I believe there are also checks built in so that if you are lucky enough to get into a special game, you are less likely to get into other, in order to avoid one person randomly getting into a number of special games or events while another person doesn't get any.

Even if you aren't lucky enough to get into any of the special limited-seating games, there are still plenty of open games (most are PFS) so you'll be able to play plenty of games.

Keep your eyes open because when the lottery goes live, you want to pounce on it asap!

You might check out the recently-released Advanced Races Compendium from Kobold Press.

There is an entire chapter on playing a gnoll as a player race, including cultural background, racial feats, traits, spells, gear, magic items, archetypes and loads more!

You really should combine Open Design and Kobold Press, since they are (and always have been) the same company ...

I'm still trying to decide what to combine, and what not to combine. Should Path of War Expanded and Path of War Expanded - Work in Progress be combined? What about things like The Book of Heroic Races Compendium and the individual releases that combines? [At least, I think there were individual releases.] What about Strange Magic and its contents, which I think have had three or four different versions? And I'm still not sure exactly what to do about OWC/SGG/RGG.

I'm looking for suggestions. And I'm strongly leaning towards combining Open Design and Kobold Quarterly. I have to figure out how to do it cleanly without damaging the integrity of the data.

Open Design and Kobold Press are the same company, so I think combining them is absolutely the right thing. Kobold Quarterly was never the name of the company - it was the popular magazine that Kobold Press/Open Design produced ...

Liberty's Edge

We use a few house rules of course, but I'd say the number one change that has improved the game most was implementing my Scaling Combat Feats from the New Paths Compendium

We allow most of the classes and other goodies from the book as well, but Scaling Combat Feats has been the biggest improvement ...

I was shocked more at your "It probably won't even dent the box office." comment. Most knowledgeable people I've heard feel the Jungle Book will make a massive amount of money and will most likely even get nominated for some big awards.

I'm a HUGE Star Trek fan and this sounds like a cool show, but I have no intention of watching it if I have to pay for the service. I have a feeling a LOT of others will feel the same way and I'm afraid it might doom the show ...

I really hope they reconsider ...

I can absolutely help!

Check out the Theurge class in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press!!! It's *exactly* what your are describing!

A few quotes from the various reviews:

"The Theurge is, in my opinion, a long needed addition to the game. The use of a "Prayer Book" elegantly handles the balance issues of giving a single class access to effectively every spell in the game."

"The Theurge! Oh my! Basically, this is a normal class version of the Mystic Theurge. You get both divine and arcane spellcasting progression, with both sides having halved spells per day. Additionally, each set of spellcasting uses a different ability score for save DCs. This Theurge has a lot of versatility, and can bring a lot of tools to any party."

"The Theurge is an amazing spellcaster that allows you to cast divine and arcane spells right from the get go, without having to make that climb into Paizo’s Mystic Theurge prestige class. Well fear no longer, because the Theurge can do that from level 1 and can even cast two spells at the same time given that one is arcane and one is divine. Their only downfall is how many spells per day they can actually pull off but then again, if they could cast all day like other classes, then it would be broken and probably banned from tables so I find it very balanced in that fact."

Crystal, amethyst, sapphire, emerald, topaz, and the Ruby Dragon Sardior himself - gem dragons have been part of D&D since the earliest days.

Ed Greenwood says: "There's something cool about dragons. A special sort of cool. Great power, hubris, magic, wits to match the adventurers' own. Any Dungeon Master can always use a new dragon, either a detailed individual or entirely new sorts of dragons. In Gem Dragons of Faerûn, you get both.

"Gem dragons have been around for a long time, but this is the best and most detailed (and, of course, 5th Edition) treatment of them I've ever laid eager DM's eyes on, and I met an old friend in its pages. Lovingly worked into the fabric of the Realms and fully realized for any D&D campaign, these wyrms are ready to leap off the pages and into your campaign. A winner! Two talons way, way up!"
