As usual, this set will "flesh out" a couple of key monster types (including a major one people have been demanding from the start, but which we've not yet included in a single set).

I'm hoping this means fey!

Well... we've had at least two fey (redcap, faun) and a plant (vine choker), but I don't think there has been an ooze yet...

EDIT: Not that I'm arguing against more fey or plants.

Hawk requested the actual wording:

Jolly Roger wrote:
Display this card next to your ship. While displayed, add 1d6 to your checks to defeat ships.

We actually interpreted it as only working for the player of the card ("your checks"), but that it stays displayed for the game without counting against your hand.

Gothic Horror would be anything like the classic horror films: Frankenstein, the werewolf, Dracula,...

So you could make scenarios based on those types of monsters. Villains/Henchmen which come to mind would be Aron Ivy, the Skinsaw Man, The Scarecrow Golem...
And locations would be creepy places like tombs, castles, haunted mansions...

Hawk, I'd be glad to proofread/brainstorm anything if you want to PM me.

Overall, I'm extremely happy with this set.

I bought a case, and the distribution is pretty good - I got the set, and I'm pretty happy with which minis were duplicated.

My only serious problem was that 2 of my 3 leaping boggards had snapped "stems", and one Haughty Avenger was off its base.

On the positive side, most of the paint jobs were more than acceptable. Damiel, in particular, is incredible! And the sculpts are far better in hand than any of the photos show.

Definitely one of the better sets.

dwk, there is a game day tomorrow for Pathfinder Society Organized Play. That is a great way to get in on an occasional game, but it's also a good place to meet players and GM's.
The event is at Kessel Run games. You can find info on Warhorn.

Yanzak, I'm pretty sure that The Shadow Shackleton (above) has a game day scheduled tomorrow. Even if your not really interested in Pathfinder Society Organized Play, you should contact him and go out. It would be a great place to meet GM's and players.
EDIT: The event is at Kessel Run games, and registration is on Warhorn.

So happy to see Liz and Tanis working on this game. Boardgames need more women and more varied representation in general both in playing and designing, so this is very welcome news!
We like hiring the best people, regardless of what kind of people they are.

As somebody who had the pleasure of meeting almost all of the Lone Sharks at GenCon (only one escaped me), I would say that they are the right kind of people: fun people.

Personally, I quite like the blue dice. They're easy to read, which has become increasingly important to me, especially in org play situations.

To be clear, I actually agree with Theryon here. I think it needs to be clarified in the OP Guide, just the same as ancillary products are in the PFS Guide. Not that I feel it shouldn't be allowed. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed it, and to bring it to Tanis & Vic's attention.

And I'm 90% sure that the rule will be that any mat works.

Grand Lodge

I sort of hate to ask this, but...

Is the special rule of the play mats "official" for organized play?

I didn't notice anything about it in the Org Play Guide, and I'm sure it will come up to a co-ordinator some time.

Paizo Game Space is also on the web team's to-do list, and has been since July of 2012. And that feature would probably be far more useful to far more users than fixing a couple of images.

And this is not a complaint about the status of Game Space, it's just an indication of how busy the web team is.
Your priorities are not the same as everybody else's.

Yup. I played through all of the Adventure 1 scenarios at GenCon. Then played Adventure 0 last week in Ontario with my new, unlocked character :)

I interpreted the comment this way:
There is another location that does damage to the ship.
If you go there, your ship takes damage in spite of the fact it is anchored where you were.
If you don't want your ship to take damage, don't go to the damaging location.

Wow. $30.00 is kind of pricey for 6 miniatures considering that the D&D Icons of the Realms Starter Set retails for $18.00 on Paizo's site. That's almost double the price. Here I thought that Paizo was doing something great by offering to make some of the rare iconic miniatures available to everyone (considering some iconic minis go for silly prices if you REALLY want them - ie on eBay).

The cards certainly cannot make up for that price difference...and for those of us who have not invested in the PACG, the cards will not offer any incentive.

What is it that makes these so much more costly?

Only speculation, but I strongly suspect that the D&D miniatures were launched at a lower price to get them purchased by consumers. That price is pretty comparable to the initial set of Pathfinder miniatures.

The reasons you already mentioned, I think.
Also, set up is marginally simpler.

But I suspect the main reason is that 3-4 players is when the game is easiest. 5-6 means you often run out of Blessings, 1-2 means you're short on skills and in more danger of dying. And in OP you want to have a larger margin of success... and more freedom to experiment with the scenarios.

As Hawkmoon says, starting with the Add-On Deck gets you 5 promo cards right off the bat. I don't think they come with the AD2.

Jason, it only says that the residents of Iqaliat outfit the caravan with "cold weather gear".
For my campaign, I said that includes outrigger skis for the wagons.

To answer a question that you may now be asking: Hawkmoon is a rules guru, and is fantastically helpful to folks on these boards. I have never seen him answer a rules question incorrectly (and certainly is correct on all of the above), but rarely his interpretations of how certain combinations of cards interact may get over-ridden by the Powers That Be.

Like twice in 8 million posts ;)
(exaggeration, but his percentage correct is impressive)

I'm pretty sure that Mike said they were a bit behind on Wrath of the Righteous even before any of the S&S issues popped up. So I would expect it will be a bit late.
However, I would also expect that they may catch up for next GenCon ;)

Being unpleasant rarely speeds things up.
And emails on the weekend are unlikely to get an immediate response.
If you look around on the site, you will see that the CS/Shipping people have been swamped since August due to difficulties with the printing of the card game, on top of some recent bugs in the ordering system.

Ah! Never mind... I see that your 9 posts have all been complaints, mostly unpleasant. It must be working for you.
