I was extremely pleased with the stance Gen Con took.

And I'm happy to be going to Indianapolis this year, to enjoy games, meals, beverages, and good conversation with gamers of many varieties. The only people I dislike doing any of that with are those who act like a jerk, and I've run into very few of those over the years since I first attended the con in 1992.

And I'm happy to have met all 3 of the Paizo staffers who have posted above (tho they may not all remember me) and I know what warm, inclusive people they all are, to all gamers.

Can't wait!!

By my calculations a half-hafling would actually be a three-quartersling.

It cannot work that way, because then every time two halflings multiplied they would have a quarterling.

Very nice!

For those of you short on chests, I suggest using the mimic. Keep your players on their toes.

Put another way: we guessed that there would be less crazypants insane replaying of B and AD1 than happened with RotR, but we didn't know how much less.
Hum I wonder if it's a joke ? Took us 3 tries to pass B2 and 7 tries to pass B4. And be sure we were so frustrated we didn't want that many. Seems that you guys made sure that there would be an insane lot of replaying.

I think they're referring to situations like in my post, where people would re-play after success.

I confess. I'm one of those dirty dirty re-players.

Though ours was a different situation...

In Runelords, my group has a total of 7 players, though the most we ever play with is 6. Only 2 of us have been there for every game. So rather than have incredibly weak characters for the adventure we were on, or just hand out feats, we would re-play the scenario, with people who had played before only getting upgrades (not scenario rewards).

While this may have made the game easier, it has still been fun for casual gamers, and it makes sure that we don't have too large of a power differential between the various characters.

Still, we have finally reached the point where we're proceeding forward regardless of who shows up now that we all have our Role Cards. Obviously a very sporadic group (we only play when we don't have enough for our RPG game).

My S&S group at the FLGS started the same, but we stopped re-play much sooner and finished the game about 6 weeks ago.

When we failed so miserably at our first scenario of Wrath (Enora killed, ran out of time) I saw the situation on the boards, and decided to mix the AD1 cards in right away. We will still give the B scenarios another shot, but hopefully some of the worst nastiness will be diluted.

Really excited about this project from Jason and DarkSide Neil! Sword & Planet fiction has always been near & dear, and I cannot wait to see it given an AP treatment from many of my favourite authors. And it gets dialled up to 20!

I'm very glad to see that Mr Pett is contributing to the Legendary line. I was immediately hooked when I picked up "Burnt Offerings" years ago, but it was "The Skinsaw Murders" that sunk the barb in.

Unfortunately, I'm another of those furreners who was dissuaded from pledging for the hardcover due to the price nearly being doubled by the shipping. Still, I look forward to the day when I'll be able to pick it up from my FLGS, or at Gen Con. And I still hold out hope that other options may become available.

A logistical question:
I'm glad to see that the maps will be optimized for VTT play. Does this also mean that we will have permission to use them for online VTT campaigns?

I'm frantically trying to decide which players are best to recruit for this.

Regards, Less Evil Neil S

The size of the booth is not the issue. I'm sure that it is already as big as the staff can reasonably handle.

The issue is that in past years, people milling around the booth (and the booth of other popular companies) disrupted the flow of people thru the entire dealer hall, and even created a safety hazard.

As somebody who went there during some of the busiest times of the convention last year, I can tell you that the line moved quickly and efficiently. And I had an opportunity to speak with James Jacobs, Rob McCreary, Bulmahn, Daigle, and others on the occasions I had to wait. As well as appreciate the entertainers and cosplayers making there way thru the halls.

The only problem I saw was the lack of opportunity for some of the busiest volunteers with narrow scheduling windows to pick up the hottest items. And I'm sure Paizo will try to address that this year.

The Paizo booth is one of the most popular destinations at an extremely busy convention, yet still being run by a relatively small group of people. If we want to get stuff on the busy days, we have to wait.

While more difficult cards certainly contribute to the overall difficulty of a scenario, I feel that the difficulty of Wrath is also a result of some generally underwhelming boons, and some banes that seem unnecessarily punishing. Take the Carrion Golem for example... if you go against that as Enora, it basically reads "discard your hand and the top 3 cards of your deck." Unless you happened to get lucky enough to pick up a javelin earlier, there's pretty much no chance for counterplay or even evasion (immune to the mental trait). Bilious Bile is another bane I find to be a bit unfun, similar to how Storm was in S&S; you roll a die to see how bad the effect is without even being given an initial roll to defeat.

I'm all for higher difficulty scenarios, but some of these banes are just downright cruel. Yeah, I get that it's thematic for the AP, but it doesn't end up being particularly fun for the players, in my experience.

Yeah, our Enora got killed in the first scenario by a Carrion Golem.

While I agree with dialing up the difficulty, perhaps it could be eased off a bit in the Base adventure.

On Saturday, my local micro-brew celebrated their 2nd anniversary, and got contributions from craft breweries from all over the province. I purchased the $20 ticket a while back, which gave you a sample glass with unlimited refills for the 3 hour party.

So of course Cosmo arranged for another virus to hit me from about mid-week, with no sign of stopping.

Too sick to enjoy unlimited beer... Cosmo, you heartless b&#($&%$!^!!!

Awesome minis, especially the Half-Orc Adept and Eando Kline. Impressive details!

...so anyway, just in passing, I was wondering if there is any news on when a Shardra mini of any sort might be making its way into the mix.

This is in no way influenced by any outside forces. Just my own curiosity. Seriously.

:)

[casual]Shardra is also in the Wrath of the Righteous PACG, so her mini would be very useful there. Along with Enora, Adowyn, and Crow.[/casual]

Hi there,
I just re-started my PACG subscription with the Add-On deck.
Is there any chance it can make it out with my Adventure Path still?
If not, I'd prefer that it wait til the next round.
Thanks for your help!

Pretty much any possible relocation away from Indianapolis is going to hamper my ability to attend Gen Con. And I (and my brothers) have been attendees for many years.

However

I am incredibly pleased by the stance the organizers have taken on this issue, on behalf of many of the convention's attendees. And in support of a notion of fairness that extends beyond a state, or even a country.

If I lose out on my ability to attend, I'm satisfied it is for a valid reason.

Oh. And adding to the Logue Love shudder...

Mists of Mwangi is still one of the most fondly remembered Pathfinder Society scenarios for many. And it can make a fun game night regardless of whether you're involved in Organized Play.

Plus: The Kobold King!! Isn't he about due to come back again?

Sorry, Kajehase: I'm afraid my contract precisely stipulates - its Blessed, or no one.

While I'm a great fan of both Winstone and Oldman's bodies...of work, I mean...its all about casting. Only Brian Blessed could capture my...well...Logueness, as Sissyl put a finger on it earlier.

But would Blessed want to play you again in a movie after he's played you so many times in real life???

Auxmalous, I think that is exactly what Daigle is talking about.

Prior to the release of Iron Gods, was the idea that this was an homage to Barrier Peaks stated by him, James Jacobs, or Rob McCreary? Or was that just inferred by the community and re-stated on the boards?

I just want to add that Paizo is extremely good about crediting creators for their work, even when they don't really have to.

A few years back, my brother wrote a small supplement for a 3PP which detailed a number of fencing feats and combat maneuvres. Concurrently, another freelancer was writing material with the same theme but different mechanics for the original Campaign Setting hardcover. Even though it was clearly a case of independent development, and the mechanics were different, Paizo still cited my brother's article in the OGL of that book.

Creator rights are a hot-button issue these days, but I don't see this card generator as anything but a useful tool for players.

I blame Cosmo for Chyro not realizing that Craig Shackleton only writes pushover encounters.
Seriously, the guy's a marshmallow.
He has been that way ever since I killed his character Zeffin the dwarf in 1980.
