Mixed feelings about this one but let's see. If it takes you all over Cheliax getting the accompanying gazetteers detailing the different places you'll visit might be worth it alone!

As long as "hell" is not the new "carrion" *grins*

If I hadn't already decided to resubscribe for this AP you'd have had me with this issue!

Can't wait!

Ruyan.


I'd let them enter via the twin gates (with the statues of two wizards?) which leads to the Avenue of Honors.

Regardless, I'd show them one of these two images to give them a feeling for the city.

Ruyan.


Wikipedia sends you from redaction to fix-up but then again what's written there is more or less true for all the APs (in the sense that they create a story arc by pooling together pieces by six different writers).

Hm. Doesn't really help.
The redacted-theme kinda reminds me of the Order of the Rakc but Cheliax has also been ruled out, right?

Ruyan.


I know what you mean. As much as I like to have the book on my shelf it is these situations where I find PDFs becoming more and more valuable to me and my game: find the pieces of text you need, copy/paste them together and print them out to have them ready whenever the need arises.

Probably not much comfort right now, but maybe something for the future.

So, with PaizoCon only days away, it's time to trot out the cover image for Wayfinder #13.....extremely happy and proud of this one.

I have posted the cover image up on The Book of Faces, and I believe everyone should be able to take a peek here .

HOLY COW!

THIS. IS. ONE. AMAZING. COVER! Awesome!

Wayfinder #13 will be available for download on Friday, May 22nd, at 7 AM PDT.

I'll just start hitting F5 until Friday.

Can't wait.
Too bad PaizoCon is on the other side of earth... some day...

You guys rock!

Maybe we'll see an AP set in the distant past of Golarion where humanoids are battling the spreading of humans.

Age of Serpents would be good for that. The height of the Azlanti war with the Serpentfolk.

Me like.

I'm still eagerly awaiting GMing City of Thousand Fangs Below from Serpent's Skull AP.

Hm. Still not liking the dragon's looks; its neck-to-head proportions are weird.
Padrig's looking cool, though - I might pick him up as a single.

Ruyan.


So cool!
Looking forward to this one.

First of all: lots of cool stuff!

This is great, but I'm really curious about AP#100 is November. Is it going to something special and what can we expect?

-Skeld

Methinks there was some speculation going on in either the general AP forums or in the Hell's Rebel AP forums; not sure, though.

Ruyan.

[EDIT:]Gaaaah, ninja'ed by... well, who else?


This sounds great.
Too bad (well not really) my GM might run his next campaign in and around Freeport. The hardcover would look great in my collection.

Ruyan.


Iblydos! Nuff said.

Ruyan.


Great!
Looking forward to this one. Thanks (again) for all the work.

Ruyan.


Greetings, fellow traveller.

I am away from my books, but I remember a home-made scenario involving the pit,

Spoiler:
bugbears (?) having made their home there and also the Sandpoint devil.

You might wanna check the forums here.

Edit... or you just follow the link Razcar posted. Reading comprehension failure, I guess.

Ruyan.


Be sure to check out Oterisk's guide, too.

Ruyan.


Back after what seems a year-long hiatus and I find my name on the list. So cool!

Many thanks to the kind spirits for picking my contribution and congratulations to everyone else on the list and a mighty cheer-up to everyone who didn't make it this time: there's always a next WF issue!

So bring it on, you poor editor who has to wade through my tumble of words... *grins*

Ruyan.


Woah. THAT is a lot of information. Spoilers would've been nice.

Ruyan.


Greetings, fellow travellers.

I just picked up a red dragonkin from the RoW PF battles set and wanted to know whether anybody has used the dragonkin+rider as replacement for Longtooth or in addition in Stones over Sandpoint? What would be good tactics for such a foe?
Maybe some recurring villain could use the dragonkin as mount?
Thanks in advance.

Ruyan.


Great minis!

Still hoping for a door/portal-like dungeon dressing.

Ruyan.


You could also add more HD or the advanced simple template to it:

Constructing a golem wrote:

Note: The market price of a golem with more Hit Dice than the typical golem described in each entry is increased by 5,000 gp for each additional Hit Die it possesses beyond the standard for its kind, and increases by an additional 50,000 gp if the golem's size increases. Building a golem with the advanced simple template increases its cost by 15,000 gp.

If money permits. Otherwise keep some make whole at the ready.

There's a suggestion in the errata document:
Huh? Is there an errata document for RotR? I missed that one so far.

It's not released by Paizo, but rather has evolved within this thread.

The full document can be accessed here (linkified from above).

You could always cast reduce animal.

Ruyan.


Absolutely!

Ruyan.


No worries. My Woe sits at CR 5 and the Weal at CR 3,respectively.
Since I've done the CR 12 serpentfolk necromancer for WF #9 I exactly understand what you mean. This also why I usually stick to CRB and APG for the most part.
It's just that I like seeing careful (N)PC planning come to fruition and that's usualy (for me) at around lvl 8+.

Good point. That could matter if you're using low-HD monsters.

Trying very hard not to scratch the CR7 ceiling here...

Ruyan.


You think I should buy it? Naah, I've too much fun browsing the PRD back and forth and always finding new tidbits of information I didn't even know I had forgotten.

Ruyan.


Sounds interesting...

kevin_video is correct. The CR for each NPC should be 7 or less. Remember that if you are applying levels in a class that is not "key" for that monster, based on its role, then the CR increases by 1 for every two class levels.

http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/monsters/monsterAdvancement.html#adding- class-levels

Applying that rule right now...

Ruyan.


Greetings, fellow traveller.

Not exactly what you're looking for, but there's a class called the Wolf Shifter in Wayfinder #5--a fan-made mag that's available for free here and made purely by fans for fans. Quality is excellent, if I might say so. It might give you a good starting point.
The class goes from lvl 1 to 20 and is based off the barbarian.

Just get rid of the innards, I'd say.

I was even debating having her be pregnant with a quickly growing fiend, that might make the party explode with discussions... could be interesting, or it could be much more horrible than we are prepared for.

Alien style. Me like.

I'm with Peet here. But then again, it's your and your players' story. If they come up with a genuine way of redeeming her: let them. If they want to bring her to justice in Magnimar (sorry for the pun): let them and have her "escape" and join the fun later as a fully transformed demon; the stone giants led by Teraktinus (spelling) look like a good fit.

Ruyan.


Nice minis.
I hope the large dungeon dressing is a door/portal or similar.
The red has a nice pose, though the head seems way too small when compared to the rest of the body (look at the big neck!).

Will we get specific half-fiend (devil) templates for each core devil in this manual?

Have we done that for any of the outsider races? I would kind of hate to lose the flexibility of the half-fiend template by saying "You're related to an X so you always have to have Y."

I think there's more magic and possibility relating to the offspring of planar beings than simple genetics.

Yes, in Demons Revisited, half-demon templates were presented for some of the main demons, which basically acted like archetypes for the half-fiend template, granting alternate spell-like abilities and usually a few other abilities to reflect the particular demon parent; that said, it did say that it doesn't always happen, though rituals can help assure the creation of a half-demon over a half-fiend, and that it might be specific to demons because of compatibility. Not that that stopped people from wanting particular half-fiend templates for devils and other such, of course.
So noted! That sounds like a great fit for a "Devils Revisited" book down the road.

Fact check: there's going to be a "Devils Revisited" published by Paizo.

And it bears the question: how far down the road?

The best way to format any article is to look at previous issues, and how they were done. In the case of Weal or Woe, the statblocks should follow the format used for NPCs and non-standard monsters in APs.

That should give you a feel for how long a statblock is too long, as you have to be able to include two creatures, and still have space left over to explain their rivalry, and set up a conflict that the PCs could stumble into.

Great advice...and I will add that many, many questions I have received so far have been about formatting, and article styles, etc.

Please download some Wayfinders (well, OK....ALL THE WAYFINDERS!!), and review the article types, checking out the formatting styles. Our past issues, especially the most recent ones, are great examples of how articles should be structured and formatted. It's easier for me to point at Wayfinder #11 or #12 and say "like that", than to explain it in a post.

[shameless plug]

I did a Weal or Woe in Wayfinder #9 involving a mongrelman druid 11 and a serpenfolk necromancer 8 which might help here.

I wonder what the victory condition for this could be? I realize that the endings of APs are not generally canon, but there is still a reason they have tended toward 'prevent villain from upsetting the status quo'. Does anyone actually think that issue 6 will involve unseating the House of Thrune?
I'd hope, but going by the track record of Paizo's OP it is more like at the end of issue 6 you'll just about reach the point where the House of Thrune starts taking you as a big threat instead of an inconvenience.

I think I remember James Jacobs stating (found it: post #251) that tackling House Thrune will NOT be the official end of Hell's Rebel. The AP will have Kintargo as centre.

Ruyan.


Greetings, fellow traveller.

You're right, seems to be an(other) error.

There's a suggestion in the errata document:

Page 143
Vale Temros: Does not qualify for the Double Slice feat and includes an iterative attack for his offhand weapon. Statblock should read “+1 battleaxe +10/+5 (1d8+7/x3), +1 handaxe +10 (1d6+3/x3)”. Replacing Double Slice with Weapon Specialization (handaxe) keeps the damage in the statblock accurate. He still can’t make the offhand iterative.

Maybe that works for you.

Ruyan.


Is there any information about urdefhan in this book?

Thanks!

Ruyan.


Sorry for that, Bardess. I'm a bit behind with the books that come flooding out of Seattle.

Anyways. I'd be interested in doing a Weal or Woe: (half-fiend) urdefhan with class levels vs. a harbinger archon with class levels.

Ruyan.


Bardess wrote:
So my Feats for familiars are out?

I like the idea, but familiars do not get feats in the first place, Bardess. And with the Familiar Folio in the works you might easily get in danger of violating canon.

The possibilities are endless!!! ;)

Please note I am assuming the extra four "A's" are merely there to throw us off...

Am I right in guessing that this will also include classes using SNA for summoning critters?

Yeah. Don't tell them it's THAT medallion. Call it something else and give it the abilities you wish them to "see"--except when they succeed at the Spellcraft check (DC30?).

I tried that bait but Tim didn't bite.

Maybe it's an audio book on monsters revisited.

Never noticed Sjohvor actually made it! I might buy this.
