What mortal NPC on Golarion would be most likely to survive an encounter with Chun the Unavoidable?

From the design notes they accidentally sent with my last shipment:

A hardcover of "Revisited and Redeemed" creatures with bloodlines for each, along with 40 pages of tables for custom redemption of other source material.

Crossblooded Trapper/Wolf in Sheep's Clothing sorcerers are so getting banned from PFS...

The hardcover is tied in to next year's AP, which didn't have any titles nailed down except for the introductory installment "Canticle of the Catoblepas"

You know what? I'm kind of a traditionalist. I like my fantasy to be classic "whatever D&D was."

Still, if suspension of disbelief includes plate mail blocking arrows and bullets as effectively as swords, you can deal with new technology not being as good at world domination/proliferation as you'd expect it to be.

I mean, it's not like they're going to design an adventure where some guy in full plate mail armor is able to make his standing 10 foot jump across a moat full of acid.

Given all the vitriol aimed at all the chocolate-in-my-peanut-butter stuff, I really kind of hope it winds up culminating in the party battling an insane AI commanding legions of clones in reflec armor.

Honestly, from the perspective of a newly-minted BB player, the CRB is just a list of extra options, it's not an all-or-nothing thing. If you already know the d20 core mechanic from the BB (and anyone who's played the BB will) then you can pick and mix extra rules from the CRB and add them in one or two at a time until you find the complexity of game you want.

It's like slowly boiling a frog. :)

AoO's aren't hard to get your head around when they're just another rule incrementally added to your game. Same with the other additional rules.

If the core rulebook scares off players, just remind them that the bulk of it is "just a ton of new spells, magic items, and classes" and that they're already mostly familiar with the rules anyway.

Hiring a full time moderator would be a really good idea.

It's worthy of a full time job, and isn't as closely related to customer service as most people tend to think.

Paizo has some of the best customer service I've experienced, and after enormous success still maintains relationships with the fan base as well as anyone, but there comes a point where moderation can't just be tacked on anymore.

With years' worth of purchases through the subscription service and many more pdf's being picked up from other publishers, I've thought a lot about this myself.

What if there was an option to bundle a set of PDF's and queue it up for processing later?

I wouldn't mind if it took a day or two until there were enough resources free to watermark and compress a couple of AP's or my collection of modules.

Say, get an email notification when the process is done?

Looking forward to more 'wonderess items' for the pinky ring slot. Also any combination of "Black" "Doom" and "Shadow" in the name would get an upvote consideration from me.

Hoping also to find a few more Bag of Everythings and maybe a Six Spells for the Price of Nones hidden in the mix.

I'm paying ~$120 for each path. Cheaping out on the slipcase and demanding it for 5-7 dollars (which seems to be the major hurdle Vic was talking about in 2008) isn't what I was thinking.

Maybe costs could be kept reasonable by making one case instead of a campaign specific one for each AP. Then again it's Paizo so I'm sure they'd rather go big or go home on any product they make, which means production costs might still not be feasible.

Awesome idea though.

Had a little trouble with my hero lab import, getting bootstrap errors for one of the Things.

Specifically, "Thing 'rRARakSamr' - Boostrap thing 'fUncanConc' does not exist" is preventing me from loading Hero Lab in anything but safe mode, so I have to remove the RA third party update to start up Hero Lab with all my other options.

Additionally, text description and the file name are "Rappen Athuk" as well -- this seems to be entirely cosmetic but figured I'd point it out.

Going to try and import again, but if that fails, is there a good place to go for help collecting errors and squashing them?

Pathfinderized Lost City Module was suggested in another one of those "get me to level 7" or "How to lead up to Slumbering Tsar" threads. It's designed for 1-6, I'm sure you could get 7 levels out of it, though.

There's also a link to a number of other converted modules. They're pretty excellent.

If only there was someone who could put a whip on your whip, so you have reach while you reach...

Perhaps tying an improved familiar to the end of your first whip, and then giving *it* a whip-dagger could work here. That's like 20 feet of reach.

You could also try arguing that the unfurling of your whip familiar is really a move action, since he's doing the actual attack, and get another attack out of it.

People mention maturity issues, and I see the "rode his bike home" bit and think, "Yeah, he may literally have some growing up to do still."

Second thing I noticed is that someone stopped him as he raged out the door to tell him not to forget his character? Probably not the best time to worry about something like that.

Some people get really frustrated. If it's not harmful or intimidating, you can deal with it or not. I wouldn't suggest antagonizing them in any event.

It would be remarkably cynical for the car manufacturer to just say "well how many people would do that? I MEAN REALLY!" It's a design flaw, a potential problem, a chink in the armor, and should be addressed.

which level was the party when they faced a 7 troll scouting party? That sounds badly balanced.

Possible explanation and minor spoiler:
This AP installment presumes levels 5ish through 7, and the random encounter table provided includes an encounter with 2d4 trolls. Most encounters are level appropriate, but the troll one averages higher than APL and at the top end is way above APL. I think the idea with the larger groups is to run, though. :)

Would the person she is attacking while dancing be able to fight back? From what I can see the answer would be no. They just sit there and let her tear them to shreds...

I'm sincerely doubting the TPK, but I'd say even though it isn't listed, the ability is mind-affecting and thus an enchantment, and subject to the elf +2 bonus.

Hopefully there's someone not attracted to females for another effective +2 bonus.

She's ready to drop suggestion on anyone who makes it through, so I expect if they all charge into the room (and thus into the area of effect) without some caution it could get ugly.

They can defend themselves normally although that's it... maybe limit it to a number of rounds equal to constitution for every round she dances *and* exerts herself physically, like attacking with claws, then she drops to fatigued or has to make a choice between dropping the dazed conditions or whatever.

Really, though, I think it's very scary but not insurmountable if everyone is dazed on entry, she drops entangle on the entire crew (no reflex save, I'd rule) for half-speed movement + difficult terrain and they're moving 1-2 squares a turn to get to the unlucky guy who almost becomes her meal.

...because grappling is an action that is sustained the entire round(s) and a claw attack is just one of many things you're capable of doing during a round, I'd guess.

I'm voting for this without a doubt.

Eightfingers' Tomb is strong enough to prove to me that even if JJ had said "every single bit of the submission would be replaced" I could expect an adventure I'd want to run and/or play in.

I also don't buy that there can ever be too many Deliverance ogres... I think they're as iconic as Golarion goblins--or should be.

But DC 19 save or die forever every hour on the hour? Ouch.

Loving the old school, loved the slaughterhound, think the scene-turned-entire-adventure-tease (last round's submission) was excellent.

Not loving the idea that the plane can scare you (shaken, -2 all saves) leading to a 10% increased likelihood that the geometry will then sicken you (-2 again to all saves) before doing a Save or Die Forever, all while being isolated from the party.

That's all mechanics, though, and likely to be adjusted. I'm just saying I like squished PC's as much as anybody in an RPG, although I like my certain doom to stay in books and movies. :)

The only real standout complaint I have is why does a mindless conduit for the Greater, Older Ones behave the way it does?

Like, on one hand he's the "idiot god" with some (entirely incidental) symbiotic relationship with his cultists, more or less oblivious to them... and then on the other he's got complete control of the local environment, allowing his worshipers to bypass all the security of his citadel/prison? ...and he's a blob.

I have a hard time understanding this, mainly because I always think of any Old Ones, Great or Otherwise, not worrying at all about the success or failure of any mortal, aligned or not. Especially the drooling/babbling god-things from space.

I'm still about 99% certain I'm voting on this based on previous entries and the fact that this is still something I'd totally have a blast running.

100% if you changed the Devouring Geometry to a magic jar-like ability of the Scarlet God and dropped that on the party in combat. Okay so I do like hopelessness. :)
