** spoiler omitted **

You listed only four, aren't there five?

It's not fun having to wait for a cover update February is almost over :(

Can someone give a spoiler on what the ap's plot is,like they did with Mummy's mask?

Nothing concrete as yet, but the gist of things from the announcement were that the "Iron Gods" are things waking up in Numeria and granting spells, and that a big focus of the AP will be exploring technology and faith.

More info in this thread, as well as scattered around elsewhere.

Thanks!

Just wondering,how come they waited till the last volume to have a mythic monster in the bestiary?

Because in my opinion, mythic monsters shouldn't be commonplace. They should be unusual and rare cases, and most of them you meet in adventures should be hand-crafted NPCs.

But another reason: because when most of these monsters were being written, the mythic rules weren't yet complete and nailed down, and with us needing to scramble to try to sync up those rules with the rest of the adventure, avoiding using mythic monsters in the first few bestiaries was a time-saving and sanity-saving measure.

Definitely get that! ;-)

Nick, I imagine its because they included quite a few mythic demons and other creatures in the Mythic hardback, knowing it would accompany the AP.

Oh right I almost forgot about that book.

Most likely, mythic monsters in a non-mythic AP will appear in the adventure; i.e., if a mythic monster would be a really good fit, we'll include it in the adventure. That being said, if we feel there's a really good reason to create a new mythic monster for one of the AP bestiaries we'll do so. In either case, however, expect such monsters to be the exception, rather than the norm.

Thank you


I have one more question for this, now that there is mythic rules. They said that in non-mythic adventure paths like this one,there may be at least one mythic monster. If so will it be in the adventure or in the bestiary?

What other creatures come in the bestiary?

Corpse lotus (CR 13), plant with the ability to digest corpses super fast to gain fast healing. It can swallow whole and it's a pretty decent grappler.

Demon, katpaskir (CR 18), demons created from the souls of doomsayers and ultraviolent nihilists.

Devastator (CR 22/MR 8), a four-armed mechanized war machine fueled by the essences of good outsiders killed in the Abyss.

So they finally put a mythic monster in the ap bestiary.


Why is this considered a pathfinder module?


When will the cover be updated?

The creature with bat wings, 3 eyes and a tadpole body in the 4th Demon AP's bestiary, it has a difficult name in there Lamygny or something, I know the creature as Water Leaper tho.

Cool didn't know that

March come quickly please! So much cool series and movies come out + a desert based AP!

After the demons AP's which brought little monsters I liked with it in the bestiaries (only the water leaper and the Vescavor queen), i'm hoping these bestiaries of the desert will bring with it huge numbers of awesome creatures I can use much like the Winter AP's bestiaries had, the only thing that could go wrong is when there are too much humanoid undead in it...

What water leaper?

Even though it as been pushed back a bit it still is getting close.So because it's original start date was in February do you think that the other two iconics can be revealed now?

I'll give you one:

** spoiler omitted **

There is a pattern emerging - any guesses as to the last iconic?

Thanks! :)

It got pushed back a day


Rob McCreary wrote:

Okay, I'll name two of the iconics, since they're on the cover of the first adventure.

** spoiler omitted **

You'll have to wait a little while for the next two. :)

Thanks!!!


When are the iconics for this gonna be revealed? Sorry if I sound pestering, I'm just a big fan of them.


Is it still to early to say who the Iconics for this is yet?

Dear James Jacobs, do you know who the iconics for the mummy's mask are yet or is it to early to tell?
I do know. And yes, it's too early to reveal.

Ok Thank you sorry.


Dear James Jacobs, do you know who the iconics for the mummy's mask are yet or is it to early to tell?


What are the titles of the chapters?


I asked this already but since no one answered I'll ask again. Does anyone know who the iconics for this ap are or is it to early to say?

You know I was looking forward to this PDF all month for it to come out next week.But now I have to wait a whole another week. Could somebody please explain why?
Per this post here, we had some delays both internal and external getting product out to distributors (and then out to gaming stores). Our retail release date and the PDF release date have always been tied together, thus the date change.

.

Thank you


I was really looking forward to this PDF all month for it to come out next week.But now I have to wait a whole another week. Could somebody please explain why?


Why is there a change on the PDF release?


So what's the new monster appendix look in this ?


Is it to early to say who the iconics for this is ?


So just to be clear this ap doesn't use the mythic rules?


Is it to early to say who the next new iconic for this is ?


I'm a little confused, R'lyeth is Cthulhu ?


What are the new monsters in this ?


Jason Nelson wrote:
Yeah, names often get changed a bit between turnover and final. The sangoi used to be the strigoi, the azgenzak was the augenzach, that kind of thing. Yes, the sangoi are nasty little creeps, fo sho. :)

So does that mean it used to be the vampire in the bestiary but it was changed to the sangoi?


So the bloodbug is a stirge?

What's a mahaha?

Its a Demon from Inuit Mythology, but its probably on the not-to-paizonize-monster-list together with Jackalope, Drop Bears and other funny monsters cuz they aren't serious enough.

The thing with Mahaha is that it can be altered, they can remove the silly stuff and replace that with awesome horror stuff, while keeping the awesome details from the Mahaha, like the frozen smile death, and the long nails.

Add in some extremly vile sense of cold hearted humor and you have a cool enemy for the Gelugon, a Frost Demon.

One more question, what did you mean when you said horror mouse under the boat?

It's an Inuit monster. Here's a link.

Mikaze wrote:

Agreed'd. And it's not just the landscape. Harsk and Amiri look really nice in that piece. All weathered and such. And it's really fun to see "cold weather gear" versions of the iconics. :)

As for the other pieces of art:

"Vos"....could this be from Ibdylos in Reign of Winter?

"Elessia"....huh. Wonder where this could be from. Maybe she's from Champions of Puri-

Hayato and goblin babby

:D

ONE MORE WEEK

Oh man, his face :)

edit-Whoops, taking a second look, Elessia's a changeling. Probably from Reign of Winter then!

. What is Ibdylos ?

So just to be sure they don't show iconics batteling or interacting in the scenarios ?

Generally speaking, no, though they do contain images of enemies, monsters, important NPCs, combat-scale maps, items, and the ocassional city layout type map.

Im sure they could include that kind of art if they wanted, which I would very much enjoy seeing, but I would imagine doing so would raise the price of the scenarios considerably.

Alright thank you.

Every scenario to be released since January 2011 has some combination of new maps, portraits, and full-body illustrations, based on the specific needs of the scenario. While there aren't as many new pieces of art as you'd find in the larger, printed adventures in the Pathfinder Adventure Path and Pathfinder Modules lines, they're not just text and statblocks.

What are the other two monsters besides the winter fey template and Milani's herald?


Alright I read it thank you.


On a blog I read that mythic characters will be mythic at the start of a game,so does that mean that this ap won't start at first level ?


I've never heard of winter touched.


When it says frost fir does that mean a tree?


Thanks for the info
