I on the other hand am 100% in favor of dwarven cannoneers, halfling Magitek pilots, and gnome Sparks.

Or pretty much any rearrangement thereof.

I can't see the logic of "this should have gone on another planet" when the other planets didn't exist at the time Numeria was created.

I loved many things about my years playing, GMing, and administrating on various NWN servers, but never doubt it, there were things that drove me bonkers even on my best days. It just so happened that, up until a couple years ago, the benefits and enjoyment outweighed the headaches.

The Red Lotus were pretty intent on "everyone's going to be prisoners", with the exception of Explosion Face who actively seemed to be trying to kill people.

Massive spoilers for Xenoblade Chronicles included:
ALVIS
LN god of fate, judgement, observation, and administration
Domains:
Knowledge, Law, Repose, Rune, Travel

"I am Monado. I was here at the beginning. And I will proclaim the end."

Once little more than a highly-advanced administrative program, the entity known as Alvis was one of only three universal survivors when an experiment in technological demiplane creation went horribly awry, utterly eradicating its surrounding existence and replacing it with a completely newborn reality, imbuing its three survivors with divine power in the process. Though the other two deities later quarreled and died, Alvis remained, distant but ever-present, a wanderer on and observer of the world below.

Alvis serves as judge and arbiter of the world, a neutral and constant presence, like a sort of mechanical psychopomp. He keeps extensive personal record of all lifeforms existing in the world, catalogs their comings and goings, sorts the souls of the dead, and works to keep the system operating. In times past he was the go-between for the deific forces that once worked alongside him, and the operator of the world during "resets" that were designed into the reality when first created; however, when Alvis's administrative key - in the guise of a sword - fell into the hands of an enterprising mortal after the death of his two fellow gods, Alvis was requested to reformat the world into a place where such resets were no longer necessary.

Alvis's followers are few, as his existence is little known and those few who do often view him as a mortal prophet or seer rather than the divine entity he truly is. He travels in mortal guise, usually in human shape, and rarely ever taps into his divine powers save to grant spells to his minute priesthood and to perform divinations, except at the request of someone who possesses his administrative key. Those few who do know of his existence and choose to follow him are charged with aiding the world and overseeing the proper procedure of existence with as little direct interference as possible. While humble and self-sacrificing to a fault, they are often resented as manipulators or controllers by those who discern their place in the scheme of things.

We know that Richard Pett, Sean Reynolds, and Crystal Frasier are up for a chapter each. I believe Frasier is confirmed as being the first chapter.

However, you're right. There are likely a lot of people who are just cheap that buy the $10 PDF who could have bought a physical book or a higher priced PDF.

And some of us just don't buy physical books anymore, either because of shipping issues or because PDFs are simply more convenient.

Watch Avatar: The Last Airbender, CapY. Not the horrible Shyalalalalalaman movie, the three-season cartoon. It is one of the best TV shows ever created, both in story and in execution. Plus it's pretty kid-safe. You can probably get yours interested and watch it with them.

So note to self: Make sure Abrogail has chain lightning on her spell list.

With the PRD and age of the interent I will never be ready for PF2. I hope they never make one and just keep doing what they are doing. At this point all I needs me is some AP goodness.
Yet they need money to feed their families. Hence, PF2 will happen some day.

I disagree that this leads to that. Especially with Paizo's adventure-focused business plan.

I'm with Jem (well, minus the WoD bit =) ). Add to that the massive collection of 3.5 stuff I have that I still have players using from time to time. (Most notably Skill Tricks from Complete Scoundrel, Binder from Tome of Magic, the entirety of Tome of Battle, and a prestige class or feat here and there from nearly everything else.)

Paizo has pretty emphatically said they have no plans for a new edition on the horizon, so unless you consider the introduction of optional expansions/redos like Unchained to be a "stealth second edition", I think this is a lot of speculating that's going to prove to go nowhere.

I have to say, Paizo's clearly been listening to people complaining that too many female characters are wearing skimpy/impractical outfits... by giving some of the male archetype illustrations really skimpy/impractical outfits. The Wild Child brawler, the Mutation Warrior fighter (slightly), the Feral Hunter, and the Primal Companion hunter are all dressed this way.

The Wild Child reminded me of Gau from Final Fantasy VI. I presumed given that comparison and the flavor text of the archetype itself it was going for the Tarzan-ish loincloth-and-scars type character anyway.

...and the job search continues. I just followed up on a promising job in the Houston area (although a long drive). Unfortunately it came down to me and one other candidate. The other candidate had worked for the hiring manager before so he made the offer to him. Understandable.

On the bright side, the hiring manager is very interested in another role we discussed, lean manufacturing consultant. This may be enough to push me over the edge toward starting up my consulting firm. Another company in addition to this one also expressed interest in me in the consultant role. It would be a nice start to have two clients right off the bat.

to be continued...

Good luck man!

APARTMENT GET!!

Given all the headaches and false starts I've had, the landlady convinced the complex owners to give me a chance - I have to pay a slightly larger deposit, but they're willing to override the credit complaint due to the difficulty I've had in finding anyone to settle it with.

As soon as I hand over that deposit tonight after work, a place is locked down for me. I'll be able to move by the end of the month.

I am kind of amused that he talks about how RPGs are based the lie of Tolkien and then bases his whole argument on Peter Jackson.

Please tell me no one in this thread is taking this seriously.

This is the same guy who wrote the (hilarious) fantasy football post. Enjoy the humor, guys.

You obviously missed the part where Lisa Stevens herself said there WILL be an RPG, the card game just came first because it was quick and simple.

Here. I will link it for you.

If the mechanics are solid, I really don't care overly much what system it uses. I just want a toolset/worldbuilding application like NWN1 had, and the ability to create and host individual independent user-created worlds for people to multiplayer play on.

I've been looking for a game like with ever since I left NWN behind, after nearly ten years of playing it near-constantly. Something to bring back together some of those NWN communities which have since gone their separate ways.

Most anything else I could take or leave, really. And a game without one I'm not sure if I'd be interested or not.

Going back to 3.5 and converting some of my favorite PrCs into PF Archetypes (or Archetype Packages, like Rite Publishing did, which could be applied to multiple base classes by giving a list of things from each class it would replace, so you're not necessarily locked into one class or the other to play a specific PrC) has been something on my long-term to-do list.

An AP would make a good single-player/out of the box campaign, sure. Runelords would probably be the best option IMO. Or maybe Crimson Throne. Both are highly recognizable, known for having awesome stories, and come with plenty of interesting NPCs the player/player party would/could interact with, classic villains, and memorable storyline events and locations.

Well, avoiding "more traditional funding avenues" is kind of the point of Kickstarter. It's going straight to the fans and saying "do you/do you not want this" and asking them to vote with their wallets, rather than having to convince some corporation or board to support a project. That's kind of the intent from the get-go.

Shadow Lodge

If you believe it's too much of a risk* then you're most certainly encouraged - by Kickstarter themselves, no less - to not contribute, and wait until the game/other product is done, published, and released before putting money into it.

*: I originally said "if you believe it's a risk". But any project of this kind, Kickstarted or not, is a risk - at the very least, a risk that it won't get completed at all, or a risk it won't sell well when it is. The question is whether or not the risk is too high to be worth adding your own funds to the pot.

Possibility it'll be a Kickstarter funded thing: Ugh, really? Enough kickstarter. Do it or don't. "Give me money now and I'll give you something maybe, sorta acceptable in a couple years." Pushing the funding risk off on to the consumer trend needs to stop.

It's going to be a couple of years, likely, regardless. It becomes a choice between "Kickstart it or never do it" more often than not, at least for smaller companies. And Paizo is not exactly a large-scale company.

I can understand the reasoning behind leading with the card game app, but it feels a bit like announcing Led Zeppelin are reuniting ... to record a car commercial. No doubt a kick-ass car commercial, but not really what long-time fans were hoping for.

I'd agree if Lisa hadn't already stated there was a CRPG on the way and that this would be a long-term partnership.

So it's more like Led Zeppelin are reuniting to do a new album and go on tour... but since they're all together and it's quicker, they're gonna do this car commercial first, then head to the studio.

There will be a CRPG. Just no details to announce right now. Our deal with Obsidian is a long term partnership. I expect there will be many games over the coming years. The card game app was easier for them to get up running fast. There will even be a demo at our booth at GenCon. But there are other plans that will be revealed in time.

Super excited that this is finally public! Looking forward to working with Obsidian on a bunch of awesome Pathfinder games!
