Is "Robotics" for instance one skill giving you all the sub categories, or do you need to take each skills "Activate/Deactivate, Alter Functions, Alter Mission, etc"

A good start would be to search amazon for "chessex pirate card". There are a bunch of different versions. Ebay would likely have them too.

It's a fun little game in and of itself ...

What are you thoughts on the mentalist profession?

It's not a direct roll ... for instance your roll of a 10 actually equals a 30/30

Page 28 of the basic rules (Alpha Dawn book)

So you're
STR/STA : 30/30
DEX/RS : 55/55
INT/LOG: 55/55
PER/LDR: 55/55

Roll Score Notes
01-10 = 30 Feeble

21-35 = 40 Below Average
36-55 = 45 Average

Cool ... rolling ...

STR/STA: 1d100 ⇒ 22 : 40/40
DEX/RS: 1d100 ⇒ 56 : 50/50
INT/LOG: 1d100 ⇒ 81 : 60/60
PER/LDR: 1d100 ⇒ 89 : 60/60

Wealth: 1d100 + 250 ⇒ (37) + 250 = 287

Grand Lodge

I think you only roll four times so str/sta would be the same ... but then you can move up to 10 points from one to the other ... so you might start with 50/50 but could end up with 40/60 (And racial modifiers effect it too of course.)

Is this pbp? I would be interested.

I just went through a bunch of my old RPG stuff and found Star Frontiers. If accepted I will try to refresh my memory. All I ever saw/had was the core boxed set.

Yeah ... "Unique players" would be interesting too.

Wish I could be there ... I love con play!

Edit: You know what would be cool ... get Roll20 and/or D20Pro to sponsor 2+ tables worth of virtual players. I'd love to get in on the action from afar. Especially for the special.

The VTT co's would get to show their product. People that don't get to go to cons would get a chance for some con play, etc ..

The main thing that would draw me to GameSpace from Roll20 (which I love), is all the maps and graphics for an AP packaged and ready to go.

What Paizo should do is just focus on selling these packages for use in the existing systems such as Roll20, D20Pro, RealmWorks, etc.

For instance, I buy the Rise of the Runelords VTT package from paizo and I get all maps, and images ready for loading into Roll20. Already sized correctly, already with dynamic lighting added, images of NPCs and handouts.

This way Paizo is no-longer trying to develop such a complex/resource intensive project. They just need to work with the other developers (Roll20, D20Pro) to develop a path from a Paizo site purchase, to loading the data into the specific system. They also need to size the graphics and add things like dynamic lighting, but that's no big deal.

I kickstarted two crowdforger buddies so the whole family could play so I need to come up with four computers that can handle it!

I'm not worried about my wife/my MacBook Pros (2012 and 2013 Retina) ... but the kids have something like 2007 or 2008 hand-me-down MacBook Pros (3,1). Some research shows they can be upgraded to Maverick, so maybe!

Anxiously awaiting early access! Guess I should start trying to get Windows 7 on all of these.

I would much prefer a TV Series as you can get so much deeper into story and character development. I said movie though as TV series are too much at the whimsy of crotchety-old-suits. I guess the same can be said for movies.

Oh, in my list I forgot the audio-plays!

An anime is pretty doable.

As a subscriber you get the PDF when the book is shipped. This normally means that subscribers get early access, but sometimes with how shipping is combined (and just dealing with the large amount of shipments, especially around GenCon) it might take a bit longer.

I use roll20 for face-to-face games. I project the maps on tables and use the dynamic lighting features of roll20. I still use miniatures on the map .. cuz I like miniatures.

Ok, Paizo has an RPG, and have expanded into a board/card game, they have miniatures and toys, novels, comics, and we're looking at an MMO, a CRPG, and definitely a tablet app for the card game.

So when will we see licensing for a movie?

My big question is about the mechanics. From what I understand they won't be able to adapt PFRPG rules because the OGL doesn't cover that. So they'll have to come up with a new set of RPG rules for these games. I hope they can keep the crunchy feeling of Pathfinder.

I don't think I would want to see a turn based CRPG if it did not use the existing Pathfinder rules. I guess depending on how close it can be ...

An AP would be awesome, but I would prefer an original story just so things wouldn't be spoiled. My complaint about ToEE is that it was a little too faithful to the original module, having played it there were not any story surprises.

I agree, if you go with an existing AP either

1) People who intend to play the AP spoil their tabletop experience (or just don't buy it)
2) People who already played the AP have a spoiled CRPG experience.

I am one module into Rise, we have four DMs and we are alternating modules of Carrion Crown, Rise of the Rune Lords, Serpants Skull, and Iron Gods. If a CRPG is based on one of those I would have to skip it until we're done which at our current rate is about 10 years from now!

Let's see, family of four ... four iPads ... 1-4 players ... perfect! This will get my family playing the card game. I had not introduced it yet as we were playing ROTRL AP. But, the advantage to the tablet over the real-world is the ability to walk away. We'll play a game of Carcassone on the tablet over a couple days.

And CRPG in the future ... yay!

You'd probably have to talk to customer support. Did you get any other rewards? Are you expecting game time access? If so, you better get linked.

Depends on which one too ... you do the technology demo or the full game?

I think $5 on up got it. If you ever linked this account to your kickstarter pledge (at some point we were able to do that), it should be sitting in your downloads.

Dot ... I have never made it high enough of a level to matter, but we're going to be approaching this issue soon and I prefer magic to be more rare and special.

I do remember that my first AD&D character ... I once looked through his inventory and the only thing non-magic were the little bags holding all his magic rings.

Thanks so much for DMing ... had a blast as usual! I can't think of anything to change.

Interesting how bare all the sheets are looking ... is this because faction related things are missing? It just seems like sheets I received before had lots of circumstantial bonuses (That I never remember anyhow) whereas sheets I am receiving now just have items. Just curious.

@Russ Taylor - My 11 year old and I played your "Right Place, Wrong Time" game at PaizoCon. The game must have inspired him as he had me subscribe so he could GM this as his first AP. He's already reading away.

Thanks for a great game! I look forward to playing Iron Gods!

Just received this! But alas, I can't read it ... my 11 year old is going to run this one! Yay I get to play ... maybe a Pistelero 1/Inquisitor X.

Hmm, speaking of my 11 year old reading this, usually I preread, or read at the same time any Pathfinder tales so we can discuss any scenes an 11 year old may have questions about, he's read a couple.

Are there any subject areas I should be aware of as he reads through the six modules of Iron Gods? For instance I don't think I would have been comfortable with him reading Rise of the Runelords. I am running that for him and plan to leave out or gloss over some bits.

Is this shirt good for a PFS re-roll ... is it the "Goblinworks Kickstarter shirt" from the Guide to PFS?

For that matter, is this the same shirt that came with the technology demo $100 level? I backed both Kickstarters, but didn't get the shirt and would like one. However, if it is the same shirt, I find it odd that just anyone can buy them. It seems like it should be limited to "Goblin Squad" members ... however I do see the advantage of advertising the game.

While this document says a pistelero is a good choice, do gunslingers have any advantages over other characters with the use of ranged weapons such as "Laser pistols" or what have you?

Ok … so I am trying to build a character that fights with a combination of unarmed strikes, disarms, trips, and a weapon. I see him taking opponents weapons through disarm and using them against his foes, etc. Basically cinematic fighting.

The main feats I am interested in are feats that allow him to react to other actions through aoo's such as the panther Style feat chain (get free attacks based off of other's AOOs), and the snake style feat chain (get extra attacks if you crit, and later if an opponent misses you.)

To do ALL of this I would need/want (I don't think I'd get it all but)

Int 13 - for Panther style chain and combat expertise
Wis 15 - for Snake Style
Dex enough to matter to get extra AOOs
acrobatics 6
Sense Motive 9

Improved Unarmed Strike
Combat reflexes
Combat expertise

Improved Disarm
Improved Trip
Panther style
Pangther claw
Panther Parry
Snake style - sense 3, acro 1 Sense motive to AC
Snake Sidewind - sense 6, acro 3 Confirm with sense motive instead, 5' step if confirm.
Snake Fang - sense 9, acro 6 If opponent misses can attack

Desirable
Two weapon fighting
Vicious Stop
Greater Trip

This is easy to do with a fighter or brawler(or monk, but meh) and a Lore Warden is perfect for this to to his Maneuver bonuses.

Here is where I get stupid and want too much though.

I don't care about optimizing him (He's got to be useful, but not perfect), and what I love in characters is options. I like having many things to choose between each round, melee options (not just your one highest DPS swing), spells, SLAs, etc.

The above build gives awesome options for melee, but I would like to work in some inquisitor or something like that to get spells and other options. Some SLAs through elf or half-elf for example may help too …

Other feats like the styles that allow retaliatory strikes?
I want a solid 12 level build … don't anticipate getting to go past that
Ideas? Thanks!

Edit: a Lore Warden 6, Inquisitor 6 is an interesting build … the inquisitor's sense motive boosts work well with the Snake Style use of Sense Motive

WELL … didn't WoTC develop an entire working system, get people on it, and THEN get rid of it?

Ah I looked it up, nope … it was just in Beta.

I just want to say good work to the tech team … Game Space is a huge job and the team seems already pretty thin on the ground with how many other high priority tasks there are, such as keeping the store running!

So, whether or not it gets done, or can compete with the existing options, it's an impressive effort.

You could just do a {dice=crit damage]2d6[/dice] for the missing damage.

<<I think the minis are continually getting better, and while we will probably never get all the minis we want>>

These WizKids miniatures are awesome for the price ... it literally takes me hours to paint a regular one. I will still do paint and modify figs for our player characters.

When I played in high school and before, we had about 30 miniatures total, ... we reused those LOTR orcs for everything!

Now, my "kids" have dozens of PPM ... it's crazy!

That seems fair. But can the souls of the dead be tortured into the form of a functioning swarm suit?
Since it's multiple layers of clothing, each layer would probably have to be made from several souls, so you would need to find a place where the veil between life and death was thin. Also, since your goal is to allowed the manifest soulstuff to be chewed and devoured by a swarm, thus further torturing those souls, one night you'll probably wake up tied up to see Imrijka or another inquisitor of Pharasma with a crossbow aimed at your heart.
