I'll say. I actually ran through the bookmarked sites on my browser, and the only two that came up at all (usually taking about 30-45 seconds to load, sometimes after a page refresh) were Facebook and Zynga. It was like someone wanted me to do nothing but waste time on the 'net.

Lost most internet connectivity for the afternoon, which pretty much ground my work to a halt. Best Comcast could say was that they were having server problems that should be resolved sometime tonight. Luckily, a helpful and tech-savvy friend knew the specifics of the problem. Apparently their DNS is on the fritz, so I got instructions on how to reset mine to use Google's instead of Comcast's. Problem solved.

send senses:
Below you see a ramshackle collection of wooden buildings ringed by a towered palisade. The smoke rises from many chimneys and smoke-holes to mingle in a great haze above the settlement. It sits on an island in a thorn-shaped inlet of the great expanse of water. There are two floating bridges that extend out from either side towards the island, ending short of the wall, where there are partially raised drawbridges before the gates. Docks extend out into the water, with a collection of boats tied to them, including one of a size you've never seen before, sporting three masts the size of trees.

Krawg narrows his eyes at Magnus, and you can hear his teeth grind, but he says nothing, merely giving a terse nod and cautiously circling around the party to head back the way he came.

That could eat up a lot of page count. Expanding the NE bestiary by another half dozen or so nasty beasties though...

Speaking of details on certain entities though, there is a piece in the works that provides a lot of information on the [redacted] that might interest you. ;-)

The party travels on through rough, wooded hills, with the ogre setting a hard pace, taking a route south that runs parallel to the great body of water now on your right, following no trail or track. The sun is dipping down past its zenith when he finally stops, pointing off toward a hill ahead that blocks sight of the water from this vantage point. A haze of smoke can be seen in the air above the hill's peak.

"There," says Krawg. "Human town over that hill, by the sea," he grunts, leaning his bulk against a nearby pine. "Did what you said. Now I go, yes?"

I'm thinking that once some of the art is covered, the book should get MOAR MONSTERS!!! But maybe that's just me...

Seems that canon only applies if you're playing Pathfinder Society games, writing campaign setting material for Paizo, or writing fiction for Paizo (or either of those for Wayfinder). Otherwise, what does it really matter?

Edit: Or if you're trying to win the post-banquet trivia contest at Paizocon.

Krawg sees members of the group dawdling and beckons them on with a fleshy, split-nailed hand.

"No worry, no snow means no raiders come off the ice. We are safe. You be safer when you get to the human town, for sure," he says, obviously misinterpreting the delay.

Well...in order to save a really cool project that I've put in a lot of time on I sorta...took over. Now I'm project manager. I just went from really busy to super freakin' busy.

Funny thing is that Louis will be doing layout for this project, so in a strange reversal I get to tell him what to do for a change.

Krawg picks himself up slowly and carefully, tossing a glance over at Auric as he packs. He pulls his ratty-looking cap off of his head, beady eyes glancing suspiciously at Magnus a moment, before rubbing it in some muddy earth nearby and replacing it on his head with a satisfied look, then moves with Magnus to the outskirts and awaits the rest of the group. He then leads you out of the pass and turns south by southwest.

As the sun rises over the mountains behind you and illuminates the new land before you, it glitters and dazzles on something immense. You can see a great field of blue-white ice before you, ending in immense cliffs to the south, and stretching away in the distance to the north. As you watch, a portion of the ice cliff begins to separate and fall, plunging to the bottom where water erupts in a great plume of white spray. You realize that there is a great body of water below the ice, so vast that, like the ice, you cannot see the far side. Then a rumble, like distant thunder, as the sound of the great chunk of ice breaking finally reaches you.

Your reverie is broken as a grotesque snort comes from your guide, who has moved several steps away from you and looks back, annoyed, as you are falling behind. The majesty and awe of this scene is completely lost on the ogre.

Excellent. I had a wonderful time. Big bag of swag at check-in. Ran a couple of games for Kobold Press and had two tables of fine players. First time I've ever attacked the party with the antagonist's lawn. The new venue has plenty of space to accommodate the con, and the hotel staff was very helpful. Put some faces (and sometimes names) to a few more forum handles and had some great conversations. Good times.

24 hours removed from Paizocon and no sign of con crud. I think I'm clear.

Most welcome. I had a lot of fun running it. I've never attacked a party with the villain's lawn before.

The Exchange

Yes, thank you. Most delicious and an excellent seminar snack.

Okay, it's 5:45 and I'm noticing lots of empty tables up in the Evergreen rooms. I'm gonna go lurk up there. If anyone wants in on a playtest, head that way. I'm the long-haired freak in the blue "Horrible's Laboratory" shirt.

The ogre speaks Common, barely.

Sense Motive:
The ogre seems truly frightened and willing to lead your group to the town if it keeps him alive.

There's a minor moment of panic in the ogre when the deer haunch is mentioned, its hands reflexively moving to the sack over its shoulder. Then its eyes narrow, and it nods.

"Me, Krawg, do what little boss want. Show you way to town. You ought let me stay away from town though. They put arrows in me if they see me."

Detect Thoughts:
The ogre, Krawg, begins wondering if you can see into its head. Then he thinks he shouldn't think, so you can't see the thoughts in its head. Then he gets distracted with a particularly disturbing image of himself peeling Auric out of his skin.

The ogre awakens, and several emotions cross his ugly face rather plainly as he takes in the situation. First confusion, then surprise and dismay as he takes in the illusory scene around him. Finally, perhaps a bit of fear as he sees Auric looming nearby and hears Magnus' pronouncement. Then confusion again, as he asks "Then why you not kill me?"

When Magnus makes his demand that the ogre lead them somewhere civilized, it says "Sih-vuh-lies? You want me take you to other littles like youse? Yuh, me can do that," the ogre agrees heartily, nodding his head so hard that his jowls wobble. "Me know town with big, pointy tree fence. Real safe. Take you there."

Detect thoughts::
The ogre is currently in fear of his life. He hopes that if he leads you to the place, he'll be able to get away intact. He also hopes you don't find and take the deer haunch he has in the sack he has tied to his back.

The Exchange

Okay, there's been a delay on the Interface Zero 2.0 playtest document, so if I do run a game of that, it will be with modified pregens from last year and a quickie adventure. Too bad, as I really wanted to test out the psionic characters.

I will be arriving late Saturday night and would LOVE a pick up game. Never been to Paizo Con before, how does one find such a game and would it be PFS?

Typically you just poke around the open gaming rooms and see who's doing what? There are plenty of people who don't attend the banquet, as seating is limited, so the chances of finding a game, PFS or otherwise, is pretty good.

If you have a mini you can use for the game, please bring it along. I'll have an assortment of paper minis to use, but no guarantees they'll match up with characters well.

Either the hat or the tat would be readily noticed. And I'm not kidding about the sign. Buy me a drink and give me a list of creatures, environment, and hazards/traps/special effects to use, and an email address, and I'll design a side-trek style encounter which will be written up and emailed to the provider of libations following the con.

It's Paizocon week, folks, and I'm heading out Thursday, so my online time will be sporadic to nonexistent. I'll be back home Monday evening, so I'll try to catch up on things on Tuesday.

In the meantime, formulate your plan to deal with the ogre and take any measures you need. When you've got your plan, we'll see what comes of it.

Whatever works best for you, though if I catch anyone at the table watching cute cat videos during the game, there will be severe finger-wagging and tongue-clucking rebukes.

Looks like I'm giving up my Friday afternoon game to get a little more wriggle room to do other things, so that might give me more time on Friday. We'll see how it goes.

Yeah, planning just not to fall out of the boat might not be quite enough.

Okay, so if I understand correctly...we're sixth level, and we can use Midgard races and classes, correct? What dice-rolling method are we using; 4d6 drop the lowest?

Also, will we be doing a lot of swimming? Kind of a disincentive to play a heavily armored character. :)

I was asked a similar question in the thread for the later running of this game. Here's my reply:

As for the question of underwater, after skimming the adventure it would seem you could go the entire adventure without getting more than your legs wet if you play it right. The reef is the first obstacle in the adventure and the party must get through it to the island it surrounds. It could be done entirely by boat if you so choose. If the party decides to travel underwater with magic, that's a possibility. However, characters adapted to aquatic environs are not necessary for success.

I believe PFS characters are made using 20 point buy, so lets go with that, since I can't witness your dice rolls without you using an online roller. Yes, I'm open to Midgard material, since this is a Midgard adventure. Standard wealth by level will apply. Please run your character by me ASAP so I can okay it in advance and we don't have to waste game time at the table.

Okay, I received a zip file with the adventure and pregens in it. Here's the roster for those that are interested.

  • Aurion Redlancer, LN male human cavalier (Order of the Dragon)
  • Cruent, LN male human inquisitor
  • Rainbow, NE female human fighter/witch
  • Riddle, CG male gnome sorcerer (protean bloodline)
  • Sari Kneecapper, male dwarf rogue (No alignment listed, but his background sheet describes him as "Joe Pesci meets Jayne Cobb" so I'm gonna guess CN.)
  • Seif, NG male half-elf druid/fighter

OK, I have built out the undine swashbuckler and a tengu ranger. Will also build out the wizard and then make the call as to which to play come game time.

Jeff, do you want to review player built PCs prior to game time?

Yes, please. If I see and approve characters in advance it means more time at the table spent gaming.
