That is funny but it all still applies, and the OP does not say so, but of course in 2011 the PFS version was not out yet.

Holy Crap, that is a serious article. I will have to read it when I have time. I thought I would look it over but.... Not right now.

My two cents...

Rappan Ahtuk is a huge sandbox. As are many modules set in the lost lands.

My group got to the third level of the main dungeon and got teleported out.

They are in Bard's Gate and exploring a local dungeon there. Trying to recover a priest who disappeared.

While in Bard's Gate they have been exposed to several other possible adventures to go on.

The point is they are deciding where they will go, I am not driving them in any way. They will eventually decide to go back to Rappan Ahtuk or they will follow one of the other threads they have pulled on.

Bill is an old school player and DM of D&D. He runs his games in OD&D. The industry has evolved over decades. The early days of D&D were more about exploration than a plot driven save the cheerleader, save the world kind of thing, which is more of an AP thing that is totally plot driven.

As someone who started playing in the 80's, I like the old school, Keep on the Borderlands, Lost City, Tomb of Horrors kind of play, and Bill brings all of that to the table.

In the old days the game was more lethal.

There was fear in the characters, caution. They did not rush in but walked forward with their 10 foot pole tapping the floor. They checked for traps everywhere.

The had puzzles to solve.

They often had to run in terror from something so horrible they knew they were about to die.

It is all about the exploration.

If a present day DM wants to run this dungeon, have them bring a second character, warn them they may go from rats to something too difficult to handle and let then wander where ever they want to go. Do not lock them in to the dungeon. Have other places to go, other things to do.

Get all of the current Lost Lands products and create a whole world of places to go.

Funny...

The Sketchy Inn was almost the end of my group. Two died there in ways I will not describe.

When they awoke in the morning after resting there they came into the common room and ordered breakfast, one had the sausage.

But in the room ahead of them were four ogres and three goblins.

It was an interesting breakfast to say the least. The second character death was a result of the morning conversation. The whole Inn was one of my favorite encounter areas in the GUT. They never did finish going through the GUT. They were two down after the Inn and just wanted to get back home.

It has not finished spawning so it depends where you are in the lineup. I doubt that your new subscription has anything to do with it. It seems kind of random. Some months I am right up front and others I am way back in the line. I think the computer randomly selects the order so that the "A" do not get the grade school advantage.

Bummer...

I will take a look at it.

They are in Stoneheart Valley now. I believe they will complete the TofA over the next few sessions but they just spent a week or more in Bard's Gate in recovery mode after finding the Temple of Orcus.

So, they decided to dig around in town and I let them meet the contact for Kayden in SoA. They met Kayden and want to do a quest for him. They also have a party member that wants to go to the Desolation.

SoA also has a lot of information on the wilderness around Bard's Gate.

So, the are in Bard's Gate and I am not sure if they will go back to the TofA, or engage in SoA, or go back to RA. They do not seem sure either but I think they will finish the Tomb.

I have not thought about placing the Black Monestary someplace they will notice it.

But I would love to give them Endhome for a base of operations.

They have a lot of ways to go...

I had 5 when I started my RA game and I am up to 7 or 8 now.

Of course they are far from RA at the moment and I am not sure they will ever get back but then their is Tsar and the Sword of Air.

I found it both in Pathfinder and S&W, due to come out in September. I thought is was going to be a kickstarter too. But you can preorder it here for when it is published.

Frog God Games are doing kickstarters on their large books because they need the money to print them. I imagine this is a kickstarter and will be available here afterward as all their books are.

Just saw the Complete Northlands S&W for pre-order on the Paizo site. I thought there was going to be a kickstarter on this...

Mine has been shipped. They are out and getting into the stores. I have not checked my local store being I have ordered them from Paizo at a discount.

Scarab Sages

$22,182 - moving right along...

I would put them on the slow track. I have found that even that is faster than I would like it to be.

The only maps I know of are those that were done for d20pro but they are only RA and do not include the changes brought in by the Volume 1 expansion.

At this stage of things I wish that all adventures came with players maps separated out.

Scarab Sages

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

I am liking the inner sea hardcovers in general.

I hope one of these days we get other areas of the world and I get that is not going to be soon.

Marco,

These are not a Paizo product. They are a Wizkids product that is licensed through Paizo to make Paizo creations into minis.

Paizo does not have control over the release of the product, although they work with Wizkids and therefore, have a ball park date that might be a moving target as it is in this case.

Read all the posts from Greg and you will have a pretty good idea. He breaks them down by Quarters for 2015.

The case incentives are always on sale individually after a period of time - which might be when the next case comes out but they always are eventually.

I think if you go to the Frogs website you can get the combo now, and it will likely be available here but the book has not been printed yet. It is at the printers now and will be here in I believe April. Maybe sooner, maybe later.

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.

Scarab Sages

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

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.

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.
