Well, I think that not buying the books will only result in the books being sold out when you want them.

This is like people who cancel their AP subscription because they have too much material to play right now. They love the APs but cannot get through them fast enough to keep up with the schedule.

For FMG - they Way of the Wicked was excellent. And what I see of this kickstarter it is also.

Would more communication be nice? Yes... Am I upset about it? No. Would I not buy this AP or the next? How could I not buy it (or them)... Would I badmouth FMG and Gary? Of course not - his work is excellent.

Would I recommend his work? Yes, it is awesome.

Guess I am not worried about immediate gratification.

I have contributed to many kickstarters over the past few years and even if this came out to next year some time it is by far not the worst kickstarter I have backed.

One of my first was a monster book by some unknown company but I was new to kickstarter and excited about helping something new get off the ground. I may see that one some time in the future but I no longer really care about it.

There is a film that looks like it is in a legal situation and therefore may never make it out into the light.

There is one that should have been out last month by the first estimates that I will likely not see until next winter.

It just is the way it is... And I would not suggest anyone else not support these companies or their efforts. Some of them I may not support in the future which is my choice but I would not suggest anyone else do so.

I have run four one off days in RA. The most recent of those was what my family referred to as Keller Con 2014. Most of my kids and there spouses got together to try and survive the Mouth of Doom (S&W style). All of these games have been a lot of fun and it has all been in the Mouth of Doom...

When I finish up my Serpent Skull Campaign (start chapter six in a week or two - after about three years of Serpent Goodness) I plan to start a new campaign.

ALL LOST LANDS ALL THE TIME.... RA, Tsar, Barakus, Stoneheart Valley, maybe some Black Monastery thrown in for the fun of it. Keep it all coming...

I hope to run this material for years to come and leave my other group to continue through Paizo APs, maybe Mummy's Mask.

Totally...

As always I plan to come to the Frog Farm and pick it up...

Looking forward to seeing you Bill.

So Skeeter,

After all those changes will the pdf's be updated or will there be a PDF of the actual book when it comes out?

I love my books but these days I print and run games out of PDFs. Then I can feel free to mark them up etc.

I have been running RA as a one off (when the whole group does not show up), have run three sessions and love it. They have run hard through the Mouth of Doom (I started them at 4th level).

With all the new material when I actually start my campaign of Frog/Necro stuff when my Serpent Skull group finishes (just started chapter 6 after three years) I think it will be a first level group rather than jumping them up any.

Looking forward to doing that and all the new stuff.

Osirion

And I have supported the frogs since before Tsar was released.

And about FGG having two kickstarters going. The second one is an update of a Necromancer game book with some updated material. They are not starting from scratch. This is much like Rappan Athuk that was the third (and fourth) edition of the book - yes expanded even more than reloaded was but delivery on the Grandaddy of dungeons was fairly quick considering the quality of the product. Barakus will be the same.

This is different than someone who is starting from scratch and not making progress on a funded project and then starting another project.

We already have the players map, Bill's new wilderness area, and the new dungeon level - all in less than 24 hours. I expect the next stretch goal to be reached before I wake up... Joy, Joy...

I have everything Necromancer Games and Frog God Games has done and I will continue to buy everything they do.

I also enjoy going to pick up the big books at the Frog Pond and talking with Bill and whoever else happens to be working their asses off that day.

Looking forward to Sword of Air and this and everything else that is coming out.

But I am in for $250.00. Who needs book number one anyway...

Steve, they have mentioned a campaign setting several times since ST or maybe RA was in production. They are working on it but I do not think they have mentioned a box set. I think is is more likely a book. And of course they are putting some campaign information in the Sword of Air.

And lastgrasp - I totally want to know if we will see a TOH V.

Loving my Frog stuffs...

RPGs have evolved over the years. In early years most scenarios were about exploration not so much about a story or goals like an AP from Paizo.

FGG modules take us back to that kind of feel, like no one else who is creating adventures these days. It has a different kind of feel and a different level of danger. I notice my more modern players expect to be able to kill everything they come across. People who have played old school adventure are more ready to run, not expecting that everything they face is a winnable battle.

None of this has anything to do with the role playing aspects of the game. Some players love role playing and some players give it just as much effort as they need to, to get through the encounter. Some do not role play much at all and attack everything they meet.

I started gaming 30 years ago and I have done it all. I like the current APs. I am running two of them right now and playing in three. I have previously run another three. I have also GM'd some RA and look forward to ST one of these days. As a matter of fact when one of my current APs ends I am going full into RA and whatever else I can get away with. My son has played for about 10 or 15 years and he feels the modern way of APs and such is too video gamey for him. He love the old school, 1e ADD way of doing things and he is happy to use those rules and run those kinds of came.

He will be in town this month and we are getting a bunch of family members together and I am running RA with the SW rules and we are doing it old school (which by the way is much deadlier than the Pathfinder way bye a long shot).

Enjoy your game and do it your way but there is a lot to be said about the old school way of doing things. Do it for the exploration and the money not to save the world.

Bill,

Even though Dead Man's Chest and Glades of Death have already come out in the 3.0 or 3.5 days. I would love the Pathfinder update in Hardcover.

And I imagine there are many newer fans who never got a shot at the original books.

Myself, I have everything you have done but bought them all on the secondary market (Oh, and holiday gift boxes - but those were all second and third copies), except for RA reloaded which I got as part of the kickstarter.

I am ready for a hard cover of the solar system.

Osirion

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

Arnwyn,

Did you check your spam folder? This one came in as an email with a link to get the file. Different than how we got the other installments.

Osirion

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

Thanks Chuck.

Osirion

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

I received two cases.

The only breakage I had I mentioned when I received my first. What I have found is that if I push the base out of the plastic rather than pull the mini out I reduce the issue of minis coming off the bases.

In my first case I had one mini without a base at all. and I broke the plastic shaft that one of the drakes is connected to it's base with. The other case had no problems and I was more carful.

The unpainted face is a unique issue to that mini. Both of mine are painted and had no issues.

I have been running Serpent Skull for three years and I never considered until now that CD might work well under all of that... Hhhmmmmmm.... Now you got me thinking.

Thanks Skeeter... And RA?

Osirion

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

And I received them today.

Thank you.

Osirion

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

Thanks Justin. I got an email about them shipping today.

Osirion

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

Hi,

I am a little confused on this order. Last week I received a box with my subscriptions, my two incentive minis and one case of Wraith of the Righteous minis.

I thought my other case would arrive the next day (Friday) and when I went back it had not come in yet. Saturday I had a game so I couldn't check.

This morning when the website came back up it showed one case was shipping and the other was pending. I checked the UPS tracking and showed the package was signed for but not what was in the package. That status seemed to show both cases had been shipped in one package.

To confuse the issue a bit more. I got an email that said problem with order ??? (Don't know which order) followed immediately by an email that said my things were shipping, and I could access my PDFs. And my stuff all arrived the next day so I thought okay no problem.

So, I am writing this to make sure my other case is on the way and to make sure there are no problems someplace that I need to handle, due to the first email, or if the second case is pending to get it out the door.

Thank you for all the great service I receive from Paizo. As I charter subscriber I believe I have only had to write (maybe) three messages like this since Burnt Offerings. I appreciate that more than I can ever express.

Osirion

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

I actually like the rods but I so broke one.

I find that if I push the base out of the plastic I do not have breakage. I blew it with the drake.

Osirion

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

I received my first case today and opened it earlier.

I had one mini missing a base completely (first time that has happened).

I broke the clear plastic shaft on one of my drakes as I was taking it out of the packaging. I was not as careful as I usually am. I will try to glue it in the next few days (out of glue right now).

I am very happy with the minis. I did not have any real problems with the last set as some did but I think these are better. I look forward to opening my second case tomorrow.

Osirion

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

I got everything today except my second minis case. I expect that tomorrow.

Osirion

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

It is worthless to pay extra for priority mail shipping if Paizo can't even get the subscriptions out on time. You had the entire month of november to get the sale packages out. Now the subscribers are being punished for your slow speed getting the sale packages sent. If you could not keep up with the sale packages you should have ended the sale or hired extra help instead of delaying the subscriptions.

Priority shipping has nothing to do with when it ships. It has to do with how long it is in transit. Mine usually takes a day. (I live close to the flag pole).

My two medium boxes arrived yesterday. Loved every one of the boxes I have received and considering going in again.

Osirion

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

I think I have everything Necro and the Frogs have done, but I bought a box anyway and then bought two mediums. I wish I had bought two large boxes from the start.

I am not buying these to fill in gaps or get things I don't have. I realize the collectors value of this work and I will store it away for later.

For those of you that missed the RA kickstarter, I bought a high level tier with the intention of eventually selling sets. I might be convinced to part with one for a price... :)

Osirion

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

And I bought a couple of medium boxes.

Osirion

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

I am happy with my haul.

The big things are a Tome of Horrors III and the City of Barakus. And a lot of other Necromancer modules.

I think I should have bought two boxes.

Osirion

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

Credit card would not go for some reason...

But when I went Paypal it was done in a second.

Thanks,

Looking forward to seeing what goodies I might get from this find.

Osirion

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

Yes, I did this too. Put an order in but it stopped me when I tried to complete it...

Skeeter,

Realized I did not get my Kickstarter files. (and no hurry, I have all of these on my computer - just nice to have them all together on the site).

Razor Coast $225.00 PF
RA - I don't think I will disclose this amount but can in an email or something, although it was substantial.
S&W - $125.00

Thanks for your help, quick response and hard work.

OH NO... Holding up production of books is even worse than the Zombie Outbreak.

Osirion

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

Thanks for the update Skeeter. I was worried the Zombie outbreak started where every you are and you were cut off.

Osirion

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

Skeeter,

I sent three support emails. Not sure if they are coming through.

One to give my email ect., as requested.

One to list all the files I should have on the site. (a copy of the stuff on the A plus download site).

And one to say - just give me my RA subscription #4 please.

I have my Cyclopean files all there but not my RA files.

For now while everything is being sorted out I would love to get my RA 4 file so I can check it out.

Thanks...
