Pledged !!!

Taldor

Hey, they are back with another one, and this time they are already funded.

I own several of their minis through their shop, and I can attest they are very good.

Do check this KS, it is worth your time.

Carnivale

Did somebody say 'Maztica' or 'Native American'?

Well, at least here's some Mini's you can use for your Maztica game...

You just missed the Rise of Draconids KS by anti matter games

Quite a lot of aztec like minis there as well. And I can attest they are of very good quality

That's actually a common misconception. Crossbows weren't really more deadly than a big ol' longbow. (and the longbow could be fired much more often) It's just that the longbow required all sorts of training to be good with. A pack of barely trained conscripts could use crossbows. In addition, crossbows were great for sieges since you could keep your head down while reloading.

Heck - Prussia kept a smallish force of longbows on hand until the 1800's since a longbow could shoot approx 10 shots a minute vs a musket's 3-4.

I can get behind SOME of this. Now, pray tell, how did the DEADLY, SKILLED, TALENTED, English/Scottish/Gaelic bowmen did get their asses kicked consistently by the "inferior" dastardly French Crossbowmen until the advent of mass-scales guns ?

Bows are just century-old propaganda to me

Disclaimer : I may be biased, I am actually French

Taldor

I don't care what it is, I want it at this stage.

Now, logistics and delivery ?

Taldor

In a world where D&D-like deities are real, sex is just marketing PR.

Taldor

Both suck, IMO as I would rather Battlestar Galactica, but still in a yes/no answer, I Would take Babylon 5

Taldor

To be honest, I have always toyed with the concept of a multi-world plane-hopping campaign, but life of the the gaming groups mean that I was never able to push the idea to fruition.

Much frustration here

Taldor

1) Al Qadim
2) Ravenloft
3 ) Planescape
4) Dark Sun
5) All the others

Taldor

Power creep exists, but I don't find it so bad, as long as I ignore the rules fora.

I think this thread is way too hostile.

Taldor

I did not know you were born in Nice.

So, as I missed the previous episodes, when and where is this / will this be available ? Preferably in print ?

Taldor

Cheap for some, but how available should it be ? From whom ? the local pesh addict ?

Who says it is fail proof ?

Taldor

And if I were a cultist of Lamashtu, this kind of gus would be a huge selling point for me.

Oh look, this guy has made you pregnant, and dumped you to run on an adventure ?? no worry, sweetheart, the great goddess will help you.

Now, tell me everything about this guy.

Taldor

A lot of the drama and religious taboos from our world used to come from unwanted children, before contraceptives became common.

Yes, they have existed since antiquity. But what good are they when 0.05 % of the population has them ?

Okay, now this is Golarion, and let's imagine 20 % of the population has them. This still is not good behaviour to spread unwanted children around, and if you are a Paladin, then you definitely should worry about feeding them.

I think this is okay for him, if he lowers is Wealth by Level by 1 level / child.

Taldor

You can't build a game, or anything without default assumptions.

Taldor

Awesome !

Taldor

I thought there only was a monster book for third dawn.
Apparently, I missed something ?

Taldor

Kingdom of Legends has something about Medieval France I believe

What if they were right ?

Taldor

Yeah, I like it as it is . mostly.
Would use the ban hammer very liberally if I got the chance though.

Quite frankly, I have not seen any of it. I rejoined PFS after a long absence, and I saw none of that.

Taldor

who ?

If you have experienced players, you definitely need to increase the opposition numbers.

Taldor

If the new edition is about SF or maybe modern world / Chthulhu, then I am in.

Otherwise, we don't need another hero. no new edition.

Taldor

No

Minor revisions could be fine though. such as nerfing most of what is discussed on the rules forum.

Taldor

I don't like changes. Nor updates. Usually.

Taldor

I loved Deus Ex a lot better. Everything was running smoothly.

Taldor

My precious !

I can't wait.

Taldor

Why don't I see this feat in Hero Lab ?

Woe to me

Taldor

I gave up on it, because the animation was horrible on PC, despite the story seeming interesting.

Of course, I am in !

Taldor

Yeah, I am forbidden to select it.
Well, eventually, you will sell it here, right ?

Ars Magica

Taldor

I'd like an entire AP, with no mention ever at all of the outer planes, or any outsider monsters. And no demi-planes/not quite planes/semi planes/anything looking like this even from afar ... AT ALL !

And planets are just as bad as planes.

Taldor

Well Glasgow and Edinburgh are like 50 miles apart, and then, they don't manage to understand each other

Sometimes I do feel the cover art to be... not the best choices.... Inner Sea Gods for example. The cover is a great piece of art, but the wrong one for the cover.

Maybe not a great cover, per se. Could have been better. Could have been more representative of divine power.

But over sexualized ? This one ? No. I barely see anything worth of interest.

Taldor

how reliable are they in delivering KS ?

Taldor

I'll say it again : I find nothing wrong with fanservice.

I don't think paizo art is any kind of porn, nor nowhere coming close and but I think that a lot of people are awfully too quick to get offended.

Now, on the NPCs, I think the real question should be : are they interesting to roleplay for the DM, so that they can stand out, and make the story more appealing than just offing them as a bag of hps.

Taldor

You know, even as a evil, evil, evvviiill SWM (shocking, I know), I have never been particularly offended/aroused/intrigued/other by Paizo art ... as opposed to what I regularly see IRL just by looking around me in normal life (without any special effort) ?

I find the very notion that the current art is some kind of porn downright silly and absurd. In fact I don't think about the art. At all. I look at it and forget it. Offense is in the eye of the Eye Tyrant.

The fact also that I regularly see reports from the world, where women are actually oppressed into wearing non revealing clothes that rot their lives and how they would so much like to lead normal lives, if only they could...

Makes me look at this whole thread with a huge grain of salt.

Taldor

no sound ?

Having been at a concert today, I have seen lots of women, and Seoni is dressed more modestly than a lot of them.

Just saying.

I think both of these things are true. BUT, neither one undermines the OP's point.

Just because other people are hypersensitive about your behavior doesn't mean that you now have an excuse to be insensitive about your own behavior. No, Paizo shouldn't overreact. But, it's worth their being critical and thoughtful about what they're doing, and taking reasoned criticism (such as given by the OP) to heart.

I happen to agree with that. it's just that I see too often the same arguments, and while they are fine by themselves, I don't want politically correct to stiffen authors from providing good challenging story hooks.

The dungeon is politicaaly correct and safe for authors. I happen to want more varied adventures than that.

That thread again.

I think self censorship leads nowhere, I think the Paizo folk have done pretty well : they have maintained a pretty good balance over time. In fact, sometimes they are not offensive enough in my taste.

Taldor

The system issue is one thing : it would be possible to design adventures even in Pathfinder without (mandatory) combat, but then you would need to design adventure goals and rewards that stimulate non combat behaviour.

And also, NPCs attitudes and behaviours that discourage the murderhobo attitude. Like credible law enforcement.

And then also, that would require a lot more deisgn work on NPCs, dialog, and such, to make it worth the time.

Also, the skill system is very limited as it stands now, and a talented player can reach absurd modifiers of diplomacy. Some spells also, are very detrimental to murder mystery solving, as they give away far too much information, at far too low levels.

Pathfinder, no question here.

Taldor

Daft Punk are French for instance. but you won't see them at eurovision

Taldor

Oh, I don't mind paying for it either.
It's just so frustrating when things like that happen.

Taldor

So I updated to the latest versions of Hero Lab itself, and PFRPG.
It seems all of my third party files are no longer taken into account, except the Midgard ones.

Anyone else experience this ? So annoying.
