I ban the warlock.
He does know why. I don't, but deep down, he KNOWS why.

I haven't even read the APG yet, nor do I care to at the moment.

But hey, maybe that is the end of the beginning, and now on to mature.

Cheers

Sovereign Court

Why did nobody mention Lamashtu ?

Sovereign Court

@Jason,
Are you planning a pirate compendium anytime soon ?
I'd rather one than buying each product individually.

Sovereign Court

How is it after two months ? I am considering picking it up, but I need some convincing.

Can you play with keyboard/mouse only ?

This is not bad except for allowing the antipaladin at the table in the first place : unless your players are exceptionally mature, this is bound to create party strife and fighting.

Otherwise, the reasoning is about right, but I would not go that way

Sovereign Court

MINE !

Sovereign Court

More pirating stuff, especially if it comes in Hardback.

and most of all ... MAWR MONSTERS !!!!

MAWAHAHAHAHAHA !

Sovereign Court

i think I remember around Februrary, the time the ships from China arrive, but that's just me

Sovereign Court

Said in another manneer : escapist fantasy is okay with me too, but not at the expense of the believability of the story.

The other extreme is just as bad for me as well : "misery porn" is not really my cup of tea either : the heroes must shine. But I find they shine better when they crush the real evil guys, not the orc who stole the pie.

While I think fantasy can be a great vehicle for dealing with real life issues and that an evil empire producing sexist plays in CoT isn't problematically offensive, I do have to take issue with this statement as it has been used many times before to justify throwing things in to be offensive.

That is, to use one specific example: I deal with homophobia all the time in real life. Some of my fantasy intake and output deals with homophobia, be it in novels or gaming. But sometimes, I don't want to have to deal with homophobia in my escapist fantasy.

To say that indulging in the latter is worse than real life cowardice may not be your intention, but that argument does get used, both here in the past by those that have insisted that LGBT characters must deal with persecution or else it's not "genuine" and elsewhere, like when some people absolutely lost their minds over Blue Rose.

It is okay to want to escape from the crap we have to deal with in real life sometimes, be it sexism, racism, homophobia, disabilities, and so on. There is no cowardice in finding a moment's release from that weight rather than being forced to wallow in it 24/7.

You have my sympathies, and no ill intent.

I am with you, except for the part where this leads to writing adventures where you have to remind yourself why the heroes want to fight the bad guy, as you have trouble finding out just in what he is evil and deserves death at swordpoint. Or spellpoint.

I prefer strong villains, and villains that you grow to hate - with good cause. If everybody is friendly and enlightened, why fight them ? And no random monsters that just want to eat you do not fit the bill.

Feel free to disagree with me, and once again, YMMV

Just so we're clear tho, stating an observation about a game doesnt make someone a coward:-)

Yes, my apology, that was pretty clumsy on my part.

Sovereign Court

No, CoT does NOT require you to be sympathetic to the regime.
pretty much the opposite in fact, or You should drop out after the first session.

Maybe I am biaised, but I do not even recall the play being sexist. then again, I have a pretty real harsh view of our own world, so I do not look at my fantasy with rosy lenses. nor do I want to.

Even though that may be the case that the module might maybe be less than optimal : IMO, being a hero is ALL about being anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti- what have you, but definitely not about dodging issues.

Dodging real life issues in your fantasy is even worse than IRL cowardice.

I especially want the Blight

Sovereign Court

Curse of the Crimson Throne or Council of thieves.

HEck, all of them if budget allows

Sovereign Court

Yes, it did not fund though, but as I was a patron for it, they kindly offered me to buy a print version. I read it, and I really enjoyed it.

I hope to see the next installments, but I tried to contact them, and got no answer so far.

Sovereign Court

There was a race of non-evil underground living elves in "The Night Below" 2e module; Can't remember their name now, though.

Sovereign Court

At the moment no, but I am prepping a campaign with a heavy nautical theme for the future, with Razor Coast + Freeport + other sources, so, guess what ?

Sovereign Court

Oh thanks, that's nice

Sovereign Court

Well for my part, I have had almost all of my KS deliver good products, ans I usually do not mind if they are late, as long as they deliver. There are some good authors there.

But, yes YMMV.

Sovereign Court

Bump, because this project is close to funding, and might not make it without help.

Also, I think there has been a shortage of KS lately, so it is a good thing.

Sovereign Court

Hi friends,

Seems my order is stuck ?

Any help here ?

Sovereign Court

That was nice. I knew about this ability, but I forgot

Sovereign Court

Anyone experiencing weird bugs on PC ?
I have the game crash when unequipping equipment.

Sovereign Court

I love the book, and I hope other ones will follow.
With adaptation, it could work well with the Darkmoon Vale modules.

Congrats Benoit !

Sovereign Court

The second run is here.
You have Brom, Tim Brown, and Baxa as contributors.

Jump in ! You know you want to.

Sovereign Court

Hmm, well I still have nothing.

FGG is not to blame for a licensee. CSM were fairly convincing, and it was hard not to fall for them.

Sovereign Court

There was the TAF, in ancient Xin-Shalast (Thassilonian Air Force).

Sovereign Court

Hello, I have order 3290080 with both my October and november items.
I'd appreciate if that could be fixed.

Best,

Sovereign Court

Understandable, but KS is about taking risks, so I'll probably back it in its second incarnation (they are cancelling and relaunching).

Sovereign Court

There seems to be an interesting new Kickstarter going on, compatible with Pathfinder and such. I think you huys should have a look at it.

Sovereign Court

It is a very good adventure, but the background is really very specific, and I think that is the main drawback.

Sovereign Court

Best part : they were trying to get the skinsaw murderer, set traps, and fell into their own caltrops while under a fear effect.

MWAHAHAHAHAHA !

Sovereign Court

I played a game of cat and mouse in the mist while they were keeping watch ... fun.

And no, they did not get it.

Sovereign Court

I had them investigate in town for a while fruitlessly, looking for signs of the brothers.

I had them attacked at night by the stray cat (that I made Assassin Cat or Chassassin in French) while sleeping and helpless ... coup de Grace

I also introduced a Side Trek (the Hellcow II) from the En Route series.

I had them go through an avanced fight vs the Scarecrow : I made it more like the Scarecrow of Batman movies, and I had them fight against hallucinogetic zombies to the tune of Thriller.

After they beat the bad guys and had the house, I also ran them through their own version of "The Hangover movie".

All that said : this part of the adventure really lends itself well for additional materials

Sovereign Court

Félicitations !

Sovereign Court

I love Alien Isolation, it renders so well the creepy atmosphere of the films

Sovereign Court

Easy fix : Make the region a mandatory travel point to the Ruins of Azlant, and the colonies on the New world. Ships are not very seaworthy against the open ocean, right ?

So make it so they just have to follow coastal waters.

Sovereign Court

I want the PIRATE codex !

Sovereign Court

Print only, except when the option is not provided

Sovereign Court

Hi, sorry for the thereadjack, but are there plans to release compilations of all the .pdfs issued lately ?

Sovereign Court

There was an assassin base class in 3.0 from Green Ronin the Assassin's handbook, but it was very decired back then, as "too powerful" ...

Sovereign Court

I am not sure I have this one, I need to check, but thanks for the idea, PWU.

Mwahahahaha !

Sovereign Court

That looks weird enough to get my attention.

I will pledge

Sovereign Court

Ok, I am too. they look nice, and some of them could help me for my upcoming Freeport / razor Coast campaign (Tulita)

If you like Aztec-like minis, I can attest that the ones from Antimatter are really good too. Backed two of their KS already, and they are really good.

Now I need to buy some more glue, and it seems some kind of new stupid regulation in the EU forbids you from buying super glue without buying some other products online together ? looks really stupid to me, but I will have to wait until I can go to a shop to get some.

Sovereign Court

I'm with you, guys, but still, I must say that I backed quite a few KS for minis, and then I bought some of their minis from their online store, when their previous KS failed.

They are good. They require some assembly and glue, but the quality is there, and they are much more original than most I see on sale elesewhere.

After that ... YMMV. It's up to you.

Sovereign Court

If it helps any, in France VAT is 20 % for most everything, except books, which are at 5.5 %

If your order only includes books, there is pretty little chance you will get hit by customs. Anything metal beeps on the scanners, though, and from then on ...

Mostly the problem IRL is about raising the children, teaching them, and keeping them fed.

Something single often struggle with. That's why paladins should think twice about their actions.
