So what's with the PDF being pushed back another week?:(


Anyone know what the titles of the adventures are yet ?


Shouldn't the cover be updated now?


Isn't the PDF supposed to come out on Wednesday instead of Thursday?

It'll vary.

Cool

How come the next meet the iconics blog hasn't appeared this Thursday and last Thursday ?

We didn't last Thursday because we were trying to get back on schedule to have them all leading up to Gen Con; we jumped the gun by 1 week with Jirelle.

And today's not over yet. Patience! I just read and approved today's post yesterday.

Thanks!:)

Vegepygmies on the cover!

A throwback to the 1980 AD&D adventure Expedition to the Barrier Peaks, which first introduced them to the game!

On another note... will Space Amiri appear in this AP?

Nope; Space Amiri isn't part of this AP.

She won't use her sword for much longer though...

Does that mean the iconics will be shown using space technology?
For Iron Gods? Yes. We're already showing that, in fact; note the weapon the gunslinger's using on the cover of "Fires of Creation."

Nice:)

I don't remember exactly where it moved (I don't have my tracking sheet at home), but I'm pretty sure all Mummy's Mask monsters are accounted for.

Great!!:)

Yep! I almost always aim for five per volume, except for the first volume of an Adventure Path because the campaign outline takes up those pages. During the course of an AP, sometimes other parts of the volume require more space, and since monsters are often modular and take up only two pages, they are the ones sacrificed. I'm almost always able to fit them into a later volume. In the last four APs, I've only ended up with two or three monsters that don't yet have a home in print.

Four monsters per volume is the absolute lowest I'll go. If you ever see fewer than four monsters in a Pathfinder Bestiary, you can be sure that I'm as upset as you are about it. :)

So the one that was supposed to be in this volume will be in the next one or the last one? Just checking:-)


So four monsters not five, did they have to move one up to the next volume like they did before?

I'm guessing... August? :D

I can't remember where but I remember being told that the iconics would be introduced via blogs starting mid-May to June.

Since I can't remember where this was said, but I do remember it being from a reliable source, so the dates are just speculative until confirmed.

however considering that there will be 10 new Iconics, with an assumed one per week released, we should assume that at some point within the next few weeks we should start seeing them. with each week revealing a new iconic until the actual rulebook release.

I meant what are the iconics in this adventure path not the advanced class guide.

I'm a little confused I thought that Achaekek was like a demigod, with stats. But I just saw a copy of inner sea gods at a bookstore and it says that he's is now a true god.

He's a deity.

In the previous edition of the game, when we used the 3.5 definitions of deities and demigods, that was different.

Oh ok

** spoiler omitted **

You listed only four, aren't there five?


Can anyone tell me the names of the of the other three monsters?


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.

Rob McCreary wrote:
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

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?

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?

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 ?
