Show of hands. Who would NOT in all honestly look at the spoilers?

I for one want to see what is coming out as soon as I can. It helps me plan future adventures.

We needed a Pathfinder Goblin Archer. This will truly fill out the ranks in my growing Pathfinder Goblin Army.

And to chime in agreement, glad to see the Gnolls coming out in force. I look forward to the production images, an of course to have them in hand.

The Iconic Heroes Set #1 is rather timely. I use Valeros as my Longsword and Gladius wielding Pirate in a Skull & Shackles campaign. And a player is looking to use Valeros as their miniatures in my third Rise of the Runelord campaign. At present I only have one. So getting another sculpt is great. Now each of us can have their own version. (I usually provide all the miniatures, and let the players keep the one that represents their PC.)

Thanks for the reply. It was the Second Darkness campaign disappearing that made me wonder what happened. If Development could help with that it would be appreciated.

Need help from a Developer. When I go to My Account, I am missing an Alias, "Mazra of Sandpoint" in my list. I still have this Alias in my Alias tab when I click on my main "Mazra" link. The main issues is that this has also caused My Campaigns for this Alias to disappear from my main profile. Bummer!

Thanks for any help.

These look great. With the eight Dungeon Dressing pieces per case previously mentioned, there should only be one or two chest per case. This will make them almost rare. It is more likely that you will end up with three or four Mimics in a case.

Arikiel brings up a good point, but in my opinion, there is another variable. Weapons! Players particularly want a miniature that represents not only Armor Type, Basic Race, and Sex; but the right weapon being carried.

Dagger or small hand held weapon type
Club, Mace or Hammer type
Morning Star or Flail type
Axe type
One Handed Sword type, with or without Shield
Two Handed Sword type
Polearm type
Bow, Crossbow or Sling type

And this is a very basic group of eight that doesn't even touch on the more exotic weapons available. The base 40 grows quickly to a huge number when varieties of weapons are considered.

From reading Erik's post from the beginning of the PFB line, it is obvious he is a miniatures collector like most of us. He knows as well as anybody what is still needed, and more so what is needed within the Pathfinder Universe; and in light of what has already been made from other lines.

I truly look forward to the holes and gaps being filled piece by piece as each new set is revealed.

We actually needed a Sasquatch mini. I like that it doesn't have any shorts on, unlike its colder cousin.

I too like the spiky elements on the Dwarf. If I get more than one, I will be tempted to mod one or two into Duergar.

And finally, I like props. When I can use them, they add to the overall experience, especially if I can combine them with some Dwarven Forge or other terrain.

Now personally, I would like to get several of the Cauldrons. One especially to have a little fun with. I could see drilling a hole in the bottom of one and running up a little LED into it.

Plus in a certain AP there were three Hag Witch sisters brewing around a Cauldron. I could see modifying the encounter with each sister with her own Cauldron brewing up different spells. Fun!

Thanks Erik! This is a good way to start the New Year.

Glad you are back, and hopefully well.

Just a big thanks for an awesome preview. They all look great. The Leaping Boggard is really cool.

I look forward to a Feiya redo. She maybe my favorite Iconic. I appreciate Wizkids commitment to get it right.

Hopefully you should be able to move your tokens around the map. It is easy to get the underlying map out of sync with the tokens. The back button to the far left can undo any hiccups.

One of my house rules, that I am not even sure is a house rule, is that when a monster falls dead or unconscious, his square or multiple squares become difficult terrain. I have been playing that way in my home brews since 1st edition.

An older man notices you working to help the boy. He approaches.

Map comes up well for me.

Kelvin, how do you get that info into your stat line ?

If you edit your profile, you can put a lot more on the Class/Level line than just the Class and Level. You can put a good sized part of your stats. Kelvin's character profile is a good example of some of the information you can put on this line.

Gameplay Note: Ameiko tells Brandark that there are chests in each room for storing the bulk of your equipment. You could use your own lock for free, or for the 3cps rent a lock. The lance is another issue. It is too long for the chest. Ameiko suggest storing it under the bed, suggesting that if anyone tries to steal something that big, they will become easily noticed.

Ameiko Kajitsu looks at the Dwarf, "We are all but full with the Festival." She turns around and quietly chats with an older Halfling Woman and returns, "We have one bed left in one of the common rooms. It is one Silver for the night, preferably not one of Cheliaxian mint. You know they put tin in their silver. By the way try this! Ameiko shoves a wooden bowl at Brandark and hands him a pair of sticks. The contents of the bowl is mainly noodles with pieces of vegetables and meat mixed in.

As Kelvin bows and heads toward the crowd, the extremely lean and fit human female instructor says, "Please good sir, that was most impressive. Someone of your self-control and perfection must be favored of Irori. I am SABYL SORN, and am at your service. You would be welcome to meditate any time at the House of Blue Stones."

Kelvin need not make any rolls to seek the aid of SABYL SORM in the future. Please note that in your profile. It may come up at some point in the campaign. Plus I suffer from a serious CRS disorder sometimes.

I am toying with the idea of using photos of miniatures with a handful of smaller encounters. Particularly encounters where Paizo does not have a map.

Please consider a Dungeons & Dragons Miniature (DDM) or a Pathfinder Battles Miniature (PFB) for your PC.

I have provided a link to a miniatures site (Plasticrypt). At the top is a link to the various manufacturers, and then by year of release the various sets.

Plasticrypt Website

The link should take you to the first DDM set Harbinger (2003).

I am a bit of a miniatures nut, so I should own whatever miniature you pick from either the DDM line or PFB lines.

I am not sure this will work, but I thought I would give it a try for a little something different.

Let me see how this location works for the current map in play.

I would like for everyone to format their PCs like Kelvins with base Stats added to the Class/Level line. This will help a lot when I do Initiative rolls and other rolls on behalf of your PC.

I am playing in a Second Darkness campaign, and the GM has a little link at the top of the Gameplay thread for "Map." It pulls up the current encounter.

Too soon? I am just taking advantage of my last few hours with my PC before it is Pad only for a while. The PC is far more versatile for piecing this stuff together. By the way, how do you activate maps in the Gameplay thread?

Finally, Mayor Deverin introduces Father Zantus, a handsome middle aged man with a well groomed beard and kind eyes steps up to give a short speech thanking everyone for coming before declaring the Swallowtail Festival underway.

At noon during the festivities, Father Zantus and his acolytes wheel a large covered wagon into the square, and after recounting the short parable of how Desna first fell to earth and was nursed back to health by a blind child whom she transformed into an immortal butterfly as a reward for her aid, they pull aside the wagon’s cover, releasing the thousand children of Desna—a furious storm of swallowtail butterflies swarm into the air in a spiraling riot of color to a great cheer from the crowd. Throughout the rest of the day, children futilely chase butterflies, never quite quick enough to catch them.

Free samples of food from three local taverns, the Rusty Dragon, the White Deer and the Hagfish are set up at booths around the open area.

Also, several individuals are conducting games around the periphery of the Cathedral and open area.

Please feel free to participate in any of the games below, and/or visit the tavern booths. This is a good time to meet others, PCs and NPCs alike.

A Halfling Male is organizing a Sack Race.

Dexterity check to participate. NOTE: Please indicate which game you are participating in.

Sack Race:
A Dexterity Check of 17 to 19 will win a leg of the Sack Rack. The highest Check over 20 will be the grand Sack Race Champion.

An older Human Male surrounded by children with ill-fitting clothes is organizing a game of Hide and Seek.

Stealth versus the older Human’s Perception check.

Hide and Seek:
The highest Stealth Check over 18 will be the last contestant Found. If no Checks are over 18, then the older Human claims victory over the Hide and Seekers.

A large Half-Orc is challenging others to lift large well-worn dressed stones over their heads. He belittles one passerby by referring to him as a weakling Human not worthy to even touch these pieces from the Old Light.

Strength check.

Weight Lifting:
A Strength Check over 18 will out lift the Half-Orc.

A human female instructor is working with some teen age young people to balance themselves on a long elevated wooden beam.

Acrobatics check.

Balance Beam:

Check of 12 or less you fall off the beam to the collective snickers of the teens.

13 – 15 you manage to wobble across the beam.

16 - 18 you manage to walk the beam without a wobble. Several of the teens give you an approving nod.

19 - 20 Not only do you manage to walk the beam with a wobble, you manage a pirouette at the end. All of the teens gives you an approving nod.

21 - 22 you glide across the beam, with a pirouette in the middle and a backwards flip off the end. You wobble on your landing, but even the instructor gives you words of encouragement.

23 or higher you not only gracefully glide across the beam with multiple pirouettes along the way, you do a high arcing back flip off the beam. You stick the landing to the ovation of everyone including a few passerby's.

This has been an interesting experience.

I thank everyone who submitted PCs for consideration. And if you were not one of the ones selected, I sincerely wish you well in your future gaming. Maybe we can hook up in the future. If this goes well, I may do it again, but for those that just want to experience RotRL all over again.

I do not believe any of the PCs or Players being selected below will be in conflict with other recruitment. If I am in error about that, then please let me know.

Here is the party:

1.) Fighter Type - Garrath Tricks the Giants - NG Male Human (Shoanti) Barbarian
2.) Rogue Type - Kelvin Fleetwood - TN Male Elf Rogue (Scout)
3.) Divine Type - Lyr Blanch NG Female Human Cleric of Shelyn
4.) Arcane Type - Electra Stardancer CG Female Elf Wizard
5.) Other - Brandark Plainswalker NG Male Dwarf Cavalier

Discussion Thread is open.

I hope to open up the gaming thread before I go to sleep tonight.

I am going ahead and opening up the discussion thread.

Once the party has been selected, I would like to get everyone's thoughts on ways to move the campaign forward. I am in another PBP campaign and sometimes it takes several days just to play through one round of initiatives.

Now I know that life has this crazy way of getting in the way of our gaming. Shame on it. But it happens. Like this Saturday I am taking a plane trip to Brookfield, CT where my wife is now visiting her sister. Saturday may be a tough day to post, but I am hopeful to get something in before the end of the day. We will be traveling for a good part of next week; but again I hope to have windows of time for posting. There may be a full day, maybe into the next, that I will be unavailable. If it is longer than three days then I am likely in a coma or meeting the Maker. So thoughts on how to handle the party when someone doesn't post for several days would be appreciated. I have prepped for posting situations that will allow you to meet and greet, plus the first encounter or two.

My goal is not only for some good RP but for some fun action packed encounters too.

I look forward to this opportunity to meet and make new friends.

As you came in to town, the town guard would have directed you to stable your steed at the Goblin Squash stables. It is a reasonable 3cps per day. Due to the large crowds they are limiting access around the Cathedral to foot traffic.

True Neutral it is. Wasn't that evil of a character anyway. What about rules against worshiping an Evil deity?

The preference is "No." Again boundaries between the Heroes and the Monsters become blurred. In Burnt Offerings the worship of an Evil deity by the Monsters is an important part of the story. It wouldn't make sense if the Heroes agreed with the Monsters.

Duboris, first I appreciate your interest in our campaign.

I am using the policy that I have employed as a ftf DM/GM for some time. And that is I don't allow Evil characters in the campaign. Call me "old school," and I will graciously accept that term, but I personally am a fan of the classic Good vs Evil as seen in my favorite work of fiction, The Lord of the Rings. I look to recreate some of those ideals in my campaign.

Neutrals are really OK too. My main character Mazra was a LN character. There is a lot of freedom in the N alignments.

Obviously, I cannot comment on the other GM's time table. However, I will monitor her progress to see when she has seated her selection.

I will be traveling next week, as a result I provided an estimate start date for the campaign as September 13th. I have a lot of the early activity ready to go, so I may move that date up.

Since I am the novice here, and out of respect to the other GM, I will yield to her selections first, and then go from there.

So at the moment the time table for selection is a bit up in the air.

I have been experimenting with Gimp 2.8 Image Manipulator. I loaded a map into Gimp 2.8, then layered text along the edges. I then saved in a jpg or png (depending on file size) and loaded into Google Drawings.

Gimp 2.8 is not very intuitive, at least not to me. I am comfortable working in Microsoft Paint. Gimp 2.8 requires a fair amount of self training to just do basic things. But I am getting the results I want, so that is a plus.

First of all, a hearty congrats for 45 years in December. That is truly an accomplishment these days.

"Rumpole of the Bailey" is an entertaining British series that coined the term "She Who Must Be Obeyed", Rumpole's secret name for his wife Hilda. The series goes back to the late 70's. I catch them now and again on PBS.
