Gimme the boggards! I really liked the chieftain in Shattered Star and hope these two are his look-a-likes (the pictures imply otherwise, but here's still hope!).
The sinspawn looks awesome too!
In the Magic section under Transmutation/Polymorph it is merely stated that
If the form grants a swim or burrow speed, you maintain the ability to breathe if you are swimming or burrowing
My players were utterly fascinated by the amount of gold coins stacked one upon the other and tried for (ingame) hours to pry them loose; they never found the slits though.
They never announced to take 20 on that one and I didn't enforce it.
I allowed a save against the illusion, the cleric made it, announced it was only rock and even showed the others the chipped of flakes but they wouldn't have it.
Hm. Double the size of all rooms? Wait, wait. Story behind it could be that V created some kind of demi-plane before his wife succeeded in destroying his phylactery: the mansion. While his original plans were much grander, now it only works like it's bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside.
Otherwise: have the party split (the entrance door is some kind of portal which dumps them individually and randomly--aka GM's whim so as you create two equally strong parties--in different rooms/different but identical versions of the house) and run them individually, regrouping for the final fight which should then take place in a much larger cave/room and increase A's CR and give him underlings (ghast versions of the ones they encounter with Judge I?
Excellent! Make it so.
I've never been let down by either you guys or Paizo--so: no problem from my side. In hindsight, I was surprised when I "only" got my AP book. Motivation behind my email was more to understand why/what.
I got my answer (twice) and am fully satisfied. I'll find other items to order via Paizo I'm sure...
I agree with Mikaze--reward the PCs with what they've invested in.
I first thought was a similar plot which is implemented in the Wrath of the Righteous AP with the redeemable succubus (#3 Demon's heresy).
A small piece of hope (that Nualia actually is redeemable) in between which you could give to the PCs might look something like this: have them encounter Nualia/see her at a distance and then flee/escape (again? might become a trope...). When the PCs investigate/search the area they find a litte butterfly drawn in the sand/mud/soil/carved in a tree.
I'd have her head back to Magnimar, reunite with X and then use her as main villain in the freebe Dawn of the Scarlet Sun.
Tim posted somewhere that shipping would start in August. Also, you should've gotten an email by Wayfinder asking for your shipping data where it was written:
4. ARE YOU A REGULAR SUBSCRIBER, or ARE YOU GOING TO PLACE AN ORDER IN THE NEXT MONTH OR SO (I'm thinking these will start going out in August or September....)

I'd have Ripnugget retreat to the lower chambers and join Nualia why would he stay in his throne room?
Nualia and Lyrie would definitely opt for revenge. How about you exchange the inhabitants - let Nualia and her gang occupy the upper level and have Ripnugget move into the lower level (with Erylium staying below); so no surprise attack bonus for the PCs any longer and a fully prepared party awaiting them.
The climb check at the beginning sounds reasonable. For the horizontal movement I'd use Acrobatics (DC 20: "ou can use Acrobatics to move on narrow surfaces and uneven ground without falling" + "Less than 2 inches wide"), have them make a Reflex save if they fail the Acrobatics check to keep holding onto the upper horizontal rope or so, failure meaning they not only couldn't cover any distance but also fall down into the water.
I'm also GMing for a group thus I'm quite familiar with them. Using them for my PCs was a natural move for me and I'm loving it.
I found nothing which hinted at Erylium knowing about the "mechanics" behind the runewell but what Tybid wrote can be found on p38 of RotRL AE.
Further notes about it can be found at Thistletop (Nualia's journal, p62 RotRL AE).

TECHNICALLY? Great, inception worked...

However, isn't "fight increasingly large humanoids" kind of Rise of the Runelord's thing?
My thoughts exactly, but still...
Even though this is only tiny bits of info it already got me thinking about re-subscrbing!
Latrecis, are you actually playing in my group? *grins* We must have very similar players...
As to your question, Samuel Penn:
Think about it, if my assumption about Tobyn are true, this will confuse/shock him mightily.
An analysis by him of what went wrong might look like this:
I think, he opted for C): indoctrination! (Repent your sins, Nualia, prove your worth..., etc.).
He's totally blind and insensitive to what Nualia needs: a loving, caring (foster) parent unreceptive to what she might actually want: making her own decisions.
Per PRD: wrote:
To determine whether your target has cover from your ranged attack, choose a corner of your square. If any line from this corner to any corner of the target's square passes through a square or border that blocks line of effect or provides cover, or through a square occupied by a creature, the target has cover (+4 to AC).
So: yes, B provides cover to A.
Just to add: do you know how the other players feel about her/his behaviour?
BTW, have you tried to have one of the opponents fake death and have him attackt the looting character? Or have a trap built into a backpack/pouch/pocket, say a poisoned needle like trap (dunno if that works, but just an idea). Might make for a nice surprise.
Dawn is a natural for the players' forray into Magnimar; I'll use it myself.

It's awesome to finally see that people other than myself actually like Griffons! Definitely dotting.
Are you kidding me? Griffons (variants with different spelling included) are great and make cool mounts for rangers, paladins, and cavaliers!
It's just that most GMs are afraid handling the--from their point of view--ensuing increase in player/PC power (beware! A martial character that can fly! M-u-s-t p-r-e-v-e-n-t.) that makes it such a rare thing to happen in the first place.
So yeah, you can (potentially) get one via Leadership--good luck with that one.
So congrats to Angry Wizard!
[Edit] After re-reading my post it sounds a little rant-y, sorry for that.
