I don't think runelords is at all like jade regent, since one is an asian themed travel across the world and the other is a fairly standard (if extremely well-executed) big bad guy save the world ap.
I like branching out, but not every group wants to jump from kingdom sandbox to jungle travel to horror to asian travel to pirate sandbox. Maybe one or two more "normal" aps thrown somewhere in there.
At first I was going to skip this AP because I hate horror, but the adventures seem very cool. However, I'm worried that the levels are too low (although I guess you need to throw in a lower level AP every once in a while to keep everyone happy) and I will be interested to see how you connect seemingly disparate adventures containing ghosts, a mad scientist, werewolves, lovecraft stuff, vampires, and liches.

He means Obama's a mediocre president. Obviously he'll be remembered, probably only on the basis that he's the first black president. He still has two years to change peoples' opinions of him.
Can I make a request? Enough with the story experience. Pcs are getting thousands of xp for simply following the story. What is a character gains a level? A wizard won't suddenly learn new spells because he survived a party or fled from some hellknights instead of fighting them. A fighter won't learn some new maneuvers because he found a secret door. Why can't the characters gain their experience from combat?
Well, it's easy to thnk of, but the beastmaster ranger is useful for those players who want to have pets. I think that section is well done. I also like the additional options for the rogue (cutthroat and acrobat) which appear to play somewhat differently from the rogue builds in the PH. Warlords and fighters are not as good as the other two. The large number of options is always good, I just feel that the new fighter and warlock builds don't differ from the PH as much. Also paragon paths for all classes are a mixed bag, with some inspired and unique ones and some generic and dull ones. I have not thoroughly looked at epic destinies yet, but they the most flavorful part of the book, and appear to be fun to play.
A final note: I have no idea how they will be able to make a martial power 2 without adding magic into the mix. I think they have used up all purely martial ideas.
My only quibble, and it is a minor one (I'd say about CR 2), is that Team Peregrine could have used a little more foreshadowing. I'll forgive Burlew, however, because it all makes sense and because of the Mordor-rific landscape shot in the last frame.
Could you explain it? The elves seem kind of sudden.
After getting the detailed plot overview of the whole Council of Thieves AP this weekend from James and Wes, I have to say this one sounds like the most fun/interesting of the six. Is it September yet?
You wouldn't happen to know anyone who has this recorded, or perhaps committed to memory and wiling to type it up?
Does anyone have it recorded on audio? (I doubt it, but there's a chance)
Can anyone who was there give the scoop on CoT?

When you're president and you do a better job, feel free to insult him as extremely (and idiotically)as you just did.
Ohh, also, learn some history. and political science. and economics. and constitutional law. and manners. and wit. I have heard plenty of people insult him way more cleverly than you. If you are going to act like an idiot, at least be a clever idiot.

That is about the most absurd reason for not voting for someone i have ever heard in my entire life. I mean, lip color?

Ummm, okay. That is what I will do. But it is not only them who will be out of jobs, but employees of businesses who cannot afford to keep so many employees in the face of increased taxes.
Its offensive to me that you would even suggest that's my argument. I just would rather have everyone have tax cuts and we cut government spending than some have tax cuts, some have raised taxes, and we increase government spending. I lve my house cleaner (who's voting for McCain).
If Obama cuts my taxes, my house keeper loses a job, as do my lawn mowers, my friends go to the beauty salon less often, everyone gets less money. The rich will try to stay rich, and that hurts other people.
ohh, both those last books are amazing
cough bias cough

It is specifically made to fit in with the adventure path adventure. Just plug it in. It does belong there. If you cannot mke it fit with the adventure, I don't know why you are a DM.
Why did you have to bring this back?
No one said "Your opinions SUCK!!", not even the OP. He said he likes Pathfinder. Not one person here is a rabid fanboy like you are implying.
Also, your last statement is just not true. I do not see the connection between nit-picking(no one is nit-picking anyway) and tolerance.
Trolls are stupid and they suck. I would like to reiterate what others have said, that while it is difficult, we should try no to sink to their level when responding, but make sure that what we say will not provoke them into saying more stupidity. It is a fine (and often invisible) line, but until we as a community can manage it, meta-discussions about discussions and games and blah blah blah will go on and on and .....
