I would think Farscape


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

So the Bhargest at the end of ROTRL has DR 10/Magic...how should I interpret this?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Now on Book 4 of the Banned and Banished series by James Clemens. The first in the series is Witch' Fire. It's a good series. Anyone else read it?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Reading Wit'ch Storm...book 2 in the The Banned and the Banished series by James Clemens. It's pretty good


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Sorry I couldn't resist

Cacarrot is not even a real person but it is an autobot generated by the Paizo message boards. The lot of you are not even responding to an actual sentient being but instead a programming algorythm. Apparently the joke is on you

Name of the PC: Bret
Adventure: Burnt Offerings
Class Level: Investigator/3

Cause of Death: The Yeth Hounds in the Chapel of Lamashtu. Righteous indignation from this Sandpoint native caused him to take a stand here and say; "No more." With two of the four companions having fled from the magic induced fear of the Yeth Hounds, needless to say, not the best place or instance to decide to take a stand. This young investigator became dog chow


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I believe I already know the answer to this question...but if the companions are facing two Yeth Hounds. And the Yeth Hounds win initiative and begin to BAY...sine there are two of them..would you have each of the party members make two will saves? One for each Yeth Hound present? Or once to overcome the fear of the baying in general?

So many awesome stretch goals...I had to show my love and support for the ideas...I had already backed as a Veteran...but went in there and changed my pledge to add another $100.00

Congratulations

Glad to see you are now funded and we are hitting stretch goals now. Congratulations. I am sure it makes you feel good to see this happening as this is like your child. Quick question, if we spend the extra money to add on the Crucible as an example in softcover, do we receive the Crucible PDF as well at no charge if we buy the Crucible softcover? Same with the other modules as well. Thank you

Just backed this puppy. Best of luck Lord Pett !

I would get the Advanced Class Guide and I would also start the players off with the Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition. It is a fantastic adventure path and they should have a ball. May I also recommend purchasing a megamat by Chessex with a package of colored expo wet erasers for your mapping and displays. It can make for awesome eye candy while you're playing. Have fun!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Great thread...and thank you for taking the time. Mr. Jacobs..I'd love to see hardcovers of the Pathfinder Chronicles. Starting with Book #1 I'd love to see author's commissioned to contribute to the story for that book...or short stories...include maps...etc....this is something that the Pathfinder geek in me would immediately hand over money for. I could see a new volume being released every few months or something like that. I can bet that something like this has been discussed. I'd want it to be different than Pathfinder Tales...actually written, drawn, and presented by Pathfinders for Pathfinders...would love to see something like this done. I guess my question is...is this something the minds over there have talked about...my this come into fruition some day? So the first volume would be the entire account of Durvin Gest's exploration of the ruins of Azlant and Selmius Fosters race against a marid and efreeti, and Gregaro Voth's adventures in the Mwangi Expanse. Could be a great work of love with illustrations, maps, goodies. I get goose bumps just thinking about the possibilities. Make it so! lol

Rules clarification please:

Koruvus in Rise of the Runelords has 3 arms and 3 melee weapons......a character moved into and then out of a square threatened by Koruvus provoking an AOO.......my quesiton:

Is Koruvus' attack of opportunity only 1 strike with one of the melee weapons? Needing combat reflexes for more? or does he get he get to attack with each of those melee weapons in the AOO. My first thought ist that it is not a full round of actions but the one strike? Example with the longsword? Or am I incorrect and he gets all 3 attacks that he would normally get in a round? Thank you in advance

Curse of the Crimson Throne for sure. Wow seems like there is an interest there. Who needs sleep JJ?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

A rogue, cleric, sorcerer, magus, and monk? If I have this make up of 5 players will I have to adjust the AP much? Can the party get away with a monk as the party's main show of force?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

It is on page 400 under character creation. Paragraph 3


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I asked this question in the older product line under Shackled City but perhaps not many read or peruse the area. All of Paizo's Adventure Paths are usually designed for 4 player characters. I plan on running a shackled city campaign and see that in the introduction it recommends 6 player characters. Has anyone run this adventure path and who can speak from experience? Is it designed for six player characters regarding challenge? It is stated and seems like a difficult adventure path as it is and I don't want to doom the party from the start if they only begin with four or five characters. Would appreciate some input. Thanks in advance.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

All of the PAIZO adventure paths usually recommend 4 player characters. I am getting ready to start a shackled city campaign set in the world of Golarion and I've noticed in reading through it that in the beginning 6 player characters are recommended for the campaign. This seems like alot as I've been used to 4 PC's in the current Adventure Paths. Is this fairly accurate that the adventure path calls for 6 player characters. Or to rephrase my question; is it designed and geared for 6 player characters? Anyone care to chime in here? Thanks in advance


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Possibly placing the beginning in Kaer Maga. Seems like the setting however may not be the problem but the bosses themselves. Anyone care to share their thoughts on this?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Reading Mad Ship, book 2 of Robin Hobb's Liveship Trilogy. Good stuff


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Joss Whedon is amazing and broke the TV mold with Buffy and Angel (Angel a far superior series in my opinion and deserved at LEAST another season) and it is criminal that Firefly didn't get more of a chance as the writing and characters and acting on that show were incredible.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

If I may.....I'd like to suggest....possibly publishing at least twice a year (every 6 months) in the AP books a column that discusses current events and what's happening around the world of Golarion. I would find this extremely interesting as obviously time has gone by on Golarion since the first AP (Rise of the Runelords) and it would be interesting for the GM to have some extra source material so that it seems to the players (whether they are playing an AP or a Pathfinder Module) that the world is a dynamic ever changing place.

I used to love in old TSR supplements or boxed sets when there would be a timeline or roll of years and each of the years had a specific title and that there were bullet points of things that where happening or happened and then in the most current year you'd have a bigger list or broader brush strokes.

I know it is agonizing to whittle down material to fill 96 pages each month but I think once or twice a year a column like this would be absolutely awesome for readers.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I just recently decided to try Robin Hobb and her Farseer trilogy. The first of which is Assasin's Apprentice. Incredible stuff and extremely hard to put down. I'm shaking my head and wondering why I have not decided to read her much earlier. I may go right into the Liveship Trader trilogy right after this.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I've never read any of the Robert Adams Horseclans stuff and wish they were in ebook form.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I received mine on Friday and I have to say it is absolutely beautiful. It is truly a labor of love by all involved. I personally want to thank you for all that you put into this. I already have owned the original AP's and have been a subscriber since the beginning but I couldn't resist the Anniversary Edition and I'm not disappointed.

Kudos and thank you for this.

Just received my Anniversary edition in the mail and I just wanted to say thank you for all that you do. I have the original ROTRL Pathfinders but couldn't resist the hardcover and it is obvious that it was a labor of love. Kudos to you, as well as a dove-clap. It is just beautiful.

I hope that sales of this anniversary edition go very well for you as that may entice you to do something like it again down the road.

Any chance of an Age of Worms hardcover with a Golarion setting? Not sure if there would be copyright problems there.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

To add to the above post...is there ANY class that if omitted from the AP...would make it extremely difficult to finish or succeed in?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Feedback appreciated. I am about to GM a new ROTRL campaign and I have read all 6 parts of the this lovely AP. I am very curious to hear others chime in and possibly even the Paizo staff as well.....using the Core Rules and the new base classes from the Advanced Players Guide....which combination of 4 classes stand the best chance of being able to move from the beginning to the ultimate end here?

I am eagerly awaiting input


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Forgive me if this has been answered elsewhere. I have just recently purchased a kindle. Is it possible to take the e-book editions of the Pathfinder Tales and somehow load them onto my kindle? Will it read them or do I have to also somehow load a reader onto Kindle? I am speaking about Prince of Wolves, Winter Witch, and Plague of Shadows (I have enjoyed all 3 of those by the way)

Thank you in advance


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Thank you very much all of you for your imput. I'm glad I asked as I would have gone with moderate. Looks like fast-track XP it is


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

This Adventure Path was written during the 3.5 OGL. Now that the Core Rulebook is out, I'm curious what the writers or others feel should be the speed of level progression throughout the this series. Obviously there is a Slow, Moderate, and Fast level progression outlined in the Core Rulebook. My first instinct was to use the moderate progression but I remember characters getting to second level under old 3.5 rules with only 1000 experience points.

Curious what the general thought process is out there


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Can a pathfinder society event be a play by post or chatroom event as long as all rules are followed or must it be a table-top event?

So my characters are behind a level. Currently they are assaulting the Thistletop goblin fort, and I have a feeling that they will only make it to level 3 by the end of it.

The Skinsaw Murders says its for 4th level characters so I was thinking of running a short side adventure to advance them a level.I wanted to get some advice on what might be some good published adventures from either Dungeon, Pathfinder, or some other source I could adapt with little work to fit the AP.

Thanks!

How about a Sandpoint Devil sidequest? There are a number of things you can do. Perhaps a rival group of hunters or adventurers might give your group some problems as well.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I have immensely enjoyed reading the Pathfinder Adventure Paths. I am sure that Erik is extremely busy, wait for it, ........BUT...I very much enjoyed his first installment in the Ages of Worms Adventure Path. It still rates up there for me as one of THE top Adventure Path installments.

The authors that you have been lining up have been nothing short of, wait for it again, ........AWESOME! But I was wondering, what do we need to do, to pull Erik away from his publishing duties, and have him don the mantle of writer/creator once again?

Erik how bout it?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

The rules seem to imply that Countersong may only be used to help allies resist sound based penalties. Wouldn't it make sense to use Countersong to prevent enemies from receiving sound based bonuses? I'm running a RORL campaign..and a character has asked if he can attempt to Countersong the Warchanters affects. Sort of a dueling banjos. Opinions?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Have you missed your chance to play in a Rise of the Runelords campaign? Perhaps you started the mammoth quest but didn't complete it? Now is your chance!

Looking for three serious gamers to play in a play by post game hosted here. Please apply and mention the Paizo Messageboards as a reference. Here is the link:

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

While we can certainly scan and/or fax the appropriate sheets for online play; I'd like to make a suggestion.

Could the Pathfinder Society Character Sheets and Chronicle Sheets be available here as seperate downloads?

It would make it easier for Gamemasters who are running a Pathfinder Society Organized Play session online.

Thank you


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Remember that we're playing a FANTASY game. I agree 100% with what James said. I hand out experience after each session. In a play by post campaign I hand it out after every encounter. Training is boring and what better training are you going to receive than in a dungeon itself? Players want to have fun and obtaining a new level with new powers and skills is fun.

The challenge will be to role-play that power increase as both a DM and a player. After all you're both telling a story. So explain it away. Life is too short and there are too many adventures to go on and levels to be had without having to worry about going into town and logging in hours hitting a practice dummy while some gruff taskmaster yells harder and faster. Sheesh


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I received Pathfinder #1 in the mail today along with the Player's Guide. Simply beautiful. An incredible product and Paizo should be proud.

Vic, thank you for your response and help and I wanted to make sure that I let you know that I received it. It was well worth the wait. I wish all of you the greatest success.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I thought four or five as well. Sigh. I did go in and change my shipping preferences on the Pathfinder books. Thank you for your response book. I won't sweat it then until after the 4th.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Still no package. Grrr. Now been 10 days


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Grrr..I see it was shipped on August 20th...still have not received it. Amazing. Snail mail.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Sheesh. I am a pathfinder subscriber....my order was SHIPPED on August 20th. I've yet to receive it. I'm enjoying reading the PDF file but want the actual book in my hands. It is a complete shame something shipped on the 20th has not yet reached me 7 days later.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I'm extremely disappointed. Simply horrible. Horrible story-lines. Horrible premise. Horrible writing. Horrible acting. I'm shocked too as I've liked many of the sci-fi channel's original series. There have been good ones. Stargate Atlantis, Invisible Man, Farscape, I even liked the Dresden Files and that was cancelled. I'll be shocked if Flash Gordon is renewed. Seems to me like it would have been very hard to screw this up and they most certainly did. Bleck!

Anyone watch Eureka? Now there is an original show that I wouldn't think would have any lasting power and that one is pretty entertaining. Good acting and plenty of humor to boot.

Now I don't know what to do..... STAP or RotR??!!! We will be finishing AoW next monday and I don't know which one to run next. The positive side of RotR is lvls 1-15 as high level play was a little too slow for our tastes. STAP has demo and the abyss though!!! Arghhh..... Paizo is killing me with good products before 4th edition. Now we have a time limit too!.. double arghh!!

Play ROTR. Everyone else is. You should too. This is more fun than shooting someone in the ass with a potato gun.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Taking my player characters through the first goblin encounter now. Great stuff.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

This is everything I was hoping it was going to be. Very high quality product here. I love everything about it. I love the premise for the first adventure thus far...the lead in background material with the runewells is extremely intriguing....Sandpoint is fleshed out beautifully....Background on Thassilon and the pacing preview is simply outstanding...the bestiary is top notch as well.

Thank you Paizo!
