And only two sections of SOA left to read...

Thanks Greg... Appreciate the update.

Cant't wait for all of it.

I so want my map to be complete.

I also do not like to see the Frogs drop off the list of current posts. Makes me feel like I am missing something.

Greg,

I read your posts in this thread every couple weeks just to let the anticipation build.

Can't wait for all of this.

My box was 992 and it did not have one either.

So, in RA reloaded there are some creatures who were replaced in Pathfinder due to IP issues.

For those that have played both I am curious whether to to go with the original way it was written or is the Pathfinder version actually better.

I think that it would be a shock to find those two iconic monsters in a Pathfinder version. We have played Pathfinder since the BETA version came out. I don't think they will expect it. If I do it that way I will likely convert the creatures a bit. Maybe even throw an Advanced Bestiary template in there somewhere.

Opinions...?

Bill what do you think?

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps Subscriber

No relation at all.

I have read most of the book and the Sword of Air is a very specific item.

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps Subscriber

It has not been released. It will be, most likely, a month or so after the first set is released, which also has not been released yet.

Yes, that is how I feel too.

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps Subscriber

The maps are the same.

The pregen booklet has different NPCs than the main book has.

The Bestiary is the same as the Appendix in the main book.

My group that has been adventuring in RA, and they got teleported to a place near Bard's Gate and are in TofA. One of the PCs was lost to the group and he created a new character and his back story is that his tribe (cat person) lived in the Desolation and he lost someone due to the situation there and he wants to explore it.

I thought they would go back to RA when they are done but it seems they might just check out the desolation next. That will likely throw them full into Tsar which I did not plan to run for a couple of years.

When and if they get done with that we will likely do the Lost City and then Sword of Air, and of course after all of that, FGG will have put out many more products.

We will be in the Lost Lands for the foreseeable future.

But I really want to get back to RA.

Speaking of the well. My group hit the graveyard at night. They never really noticed the well at all.

Later one of them (Rogue on a rope) climbed up the well, saw the graveyard (they now have a way out), and the group has never put together the well he climbed up and the well in the warning. I am totally blown away at their lack of being able to put together the pieces. Unbelievable.

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps Subscriber

Derek, it is Pathfinder Unchained. I believe it is a bit like Unearthed Arcana with optional rules. I understand they are redoing the Monk, Rogue, Summoner and after that I am not sure. I am looking forward to it at least for information and I might incorporate it in my game or at least parts of it.

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps Subscriber

I started my group at level 4 in Zelkor's Ferry. They lost one or two people in the Mouth of Doom.

They lost three people in The Gut.

They got teleported to the graveyard, and survived to level 3A, although level 3 stopped them, and they fled into the river.

From there they got teleported out and are currently in Bard's Gate, where they lost another party member in the Tomb of Abysthor, and are only on the 2nd level.

They have decided after the Tomb they want to go to the Desolation. I think this group is done with RA. And the next time they go it will be a different group.

Thanks, Shem. My hand-drawn colored pencil maps are nice (I think), but the real credit for their outstanding look has to go to Robert Altbauer, our cartographer. He does an excellent job translating our raw stuff into art.

Greg, I do like your hand-drawn colored pencil maps. Could you whip one out for me?

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps Subscriber

Bill, I will come pick up my stuff and see the bigger map. Thanks, I look forward to it. We have not talked in a long time.

I did mean though for current public consumption. Wish we had met that stretch goal.

I get the maps printed bigger on vinyl and put them up during the game.

Last week I combined the two maps we (the lowly public) have and took them to my printer. It will be a bit weird the way they line up but I am looking forward to putting it on the wall this Saturday.

That map was only of a small area of the whole campaign setting. So, now we have two regional connecting maps, one with RA and Endhome, among other locations and one with Bard's Gate and the Stoneheart Mountains and surround areas.

In one of the threads someone asked where Quail Valley was, Greg responded something like about 850 miles west of recently released PDF map (SOA Kickstarter).

It is a big world, and we have only a small slice so far.

The maps are beautiful by the way Greg.

Thank you Greg.

What I like most about FGG kickstarters is that they have more often than not done the writing already and the product is ready to go in a relatively short period of time. Sword of Air was one of the slower books (60 more day?), but in between we got the Lost City that came out very quick.

I am waiting on at least one kickstarter from about three years ago (never again with that company) and another seems to have completely stalled out. With the second one the books of this publisher are very good but the writing was not done prior to the kickstarter and it has stalled completely.

With FGG, they do a kickstarter to curb the expense of publishing quality books (signature stitched - that was for you Bill) and not to write and develop the whole project.

I am totally in on every Greg has talked about. I wish for the campaign setting earlier but we take what we can get.

Greg and Bill and all the other Frogs. Thank you for the products you have and will give us.

I am about four sessions into my Lost Lands campaign and plan to adventure there for a very long time.

Already it has been a brutal, fun and frightening ride...

Greg,

Is the campaign setting in the schedule for 2015. You mentioned it in other threads but did not cover it here.

AEIOU, thank you. I used different dimensions but making them the same for both maps worked great. I used 6000x7091 (which are the dimensions of the new map).

I believe the next one will be the Northlands Saga but don't know when they are planning that.

And the one after that I believe will be the Blight adventure stuff.

Then I hope to see the campaign setting.

I was looking at some old posts and I believe Greg said that the Campaign setting would be out late 2014 at the very earliest and that was optimistic. so with that little ray of sunshine I am hoping to see it before the end of the year. I am really looking forward to the regional map that includes everything.

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps Subscriber

All of the Lost Lands adventures remind me of the old Basic D&D modules.

It is not as much about the story as it is about exploration I think. My group has dived right in. Four of them have played in the old days and I think that it appeals to them for that reason.

Currently in Bard's Gate and thinking to give them hints about Sword of Air but they may go back to RA. They also have explored the first two levels of TofA.

They lost a character there who is now dedicated to Orcus. I believe he will be a recurring NPC now. To show the group the true path...

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps Subscriber

Yes, I had the same problem but I do not know how to "squeeze it"

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps Subscriber

I found Bard's Gate. The maps printed on letter sized paper are a bit hard to read, but I am good now.

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps Subscriber

I got my PDF of this map today. Printed and taped to the previous regional map, a bit weird as they do not line up well. But what I want to know is where is Bard's Gate. It is supposed to be close to Tsar I thought.

And from what I saw in Stoneheart Valley it was supposed to be close to there too. I am confused about it location.

Being that is where the poor kids are right now and I am going to be taking them for a ride next week I would like to know where I am in the world.

Thank you somebody.

This morning I made a decision.

My group has fled from the Tomb of Abysthor to Bards Gate in our last session.

I will give them an invitation to begin the Sword of Air (they are 4th to 7th level - only one 7th level character). If they bite then we will go into this and if not they can continue the Tomb and possibly make their way back to Rappan Ahtuk when there are done, or maybe Tsar which will make more sense at that point.

Bill, how many thousands of pages of notes do you have left?

Time for another kickstarter... :)

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps Subscriber

Thank you Bill.

I know you feel it was a long journey but I have to say that I have contributed to many kickstarters and the Frogs are the quickest at fulfilling their projects. I greatly appreciate that and this comes at the perfect time. I was out of things do read so I had started reading old 3.0 adventures (which I think I will convert and throw at them anyway) from Necromancer Games.

My group is lost in the Lost Lands now and I plan to keep them there for many years to come.

I read your teaser chapter and was very happy. Cannot wait for the PDF in the next couple of days, I will print it immediately and start reading in preparation.

I am really looking forward to the regional map too.

Thank you again...

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps Subscriber

Wow, Endz. I just thought no body would find that. My characters missed it when there were in the room where it was hidden.

They have now sent themselves, unintentionally, to Stoneheart Valley and I am not sure they will return to Rappan Ahtuk in the end.

But we are playing in the Lost Lands or the foreseeable future, so there is a chance down the road.

I get this isn't going to happen, but kobolds would be nice in one of those boxes.

Maybe in a different format.

The kobolds and orcs in Legends of Golarion were designed to be "feeders" for kobold and orc Builder Series sets.

Oh, well.

That would have been nice. Maybe there is a different format to do builder sets rather than the individual packages thing? I am not sure what that might be, but maybe...

You should have gotten an email directing to RPG Now or the other one. I forgot which one it came on. You follow the link and jump through a couple of hoops and download it.

Painless. I would send a message on kickstarter and ask about it.

I thought the stone giant was a bit under sized. Really liked several of them a lot. The Fire Giant is good, and the ogre, and premium mini. They were others that were really great. Not many I thought were bad. Had a Boggard broken off its clear post. I couple of them were bent over. I like how many Cult of Lamashtu members I got. I think I will use them as priests of Orcus in my Rappan Ahtuk.

Speaking of Lamashtu, that figure is great. Are we going to start getting Dieties. If so how about Asmodeous next.

I would also like to see a couple of Collassal (sp) creatures. Not a dragon I have one, but maybe a demon of some kind or a worm like creature, spider (like the one in Serpent Skull). I would not want many but two or three of different types would be great.

My PDFs were released today (meaning my package shipped).

They are working on it, and can of course only do so many in a day. What I have noticed is that several years ago it did not take as long to get the subscriptions out. My assumption here is that they have many more subscriptions than they did before, and of course this will continue to go up over time, and it will slow things down.

I do not really worry about when I get my stuff. I know that most months I will get a shipment and it will arrive when it arrives.

I am a very happy Subscriber.

Yes, a joke. Paizo made good use of the previous version even though it was a 3.5 book. Also, Paizo has actually converted some of those 3.5 templates in Bestiary 4.

The previous book has been one of Paizo's favorites as they have created monsters to torture us in modules and APs.
