So I have been running wrath of the righteous and I have used the npc gallery that is on the inside covers. Basically what I did is hide all the pictures until you have met the important npc and leave blank space beside the npc to write their name and any important info the PCs learn about the NPC. I did both for villains and help PCs. This tactic has worked wonders. The players know all the npcs right off the bat and remember their names all the time by looking at the npc gallery stuck to my GM screen. I was wondering if Paizo could possibly offer a NPC gallery for all their APs like this one. It would be super helpful for GMs and I could see you guys making some money off of it too.
I like flaws. I kinda wish we could make a sourcebook to add flavor and contention in there. meaning how to run a game with these real world issues such as religious tension, gender issues, and prejudice societies. Basically a way to add into the campaign as something to majorly strive against. Maybe I'm just weird. But I like to muddy up my good and bad guys. Make things more morally ambiguous. For example I have been running Wrath of the Righteous. And I have run with these muddied conflicts. I play up the criminals be exiled to Mendev to serve in the crusade. I play up the inquisitions witch burnings and innocent people being tortured and killed. I play up the fact Mendev in my game is a mixed bag of good people who sometimes get it wrong. I love playing up them meeting a shell shocked veteran who is to mentally broken to fight anymore. Or the fact that the crusade hasn't been completely right. I make up facts about them accidentally slaughtering whole towns of Sarkorians purely by mistake thinking they are practicing demonology when really they were just ignorant of their cultural beliefs. I love to add tension between Mendevians and Sarkorian refugees. I do this because it makes things much more dire in my opinion. You have good guys getting it wrong whole good churches doing bad things because people are at the helm. I know this isn't for everyone. What do you guys think?
**Disclaimer** This is not a thread to debate this preference. This is a how too thread. So I respect your preference to not agree but this isn't the place to voice it.
So with that over with, I was planning on eliminating all the sci fi elements out of Golarion by playing up the clockwork angle. Add a bit of steam powered clockwork robots (very rare). I plan on turning androids into clockwork people with porcelain like facades. Play up Brigh in her more gearworks aspect. Eliminate all laser guns to primitive firearms level just like other areas of Golarion. Anyone have any other cool tips to add to this?
Many believe the attacks that started yesterday are related to the ISIS threat against Canada. None of that has been confirmed. So far:
It's so sad to see this happening in my home country :(
I don't know what it is. I have a problem. I can't read pdfs. I have been a subscriber to pathfinder since the beginning, and I own all the pathfinder written material. Except the pdfs. I have a bunch of them available for download. And I have access to the pdf long before the written material arrives. And even though I am super excited, I just can't bring myself to really look at the pdfs because I hate it. I would rather lug a metric tonne of books around than one laptop. Even ipads are useless to me at games.
I had some cool product ideas that may or may not seem cool to paizo folks but here goes.
2)Deluxe world maps (Limited edition)
3) The book of the Damned (limited)
These are just a few ideas I had mulling around my head. I know they may be stupid but I think they would sell.
I feel no better for the death of this vile man. Though he has passed away his legacy of disgusting behavior continues. This man who protested the funerals murdered LGBT victims. This man who had no regard for the grief mothers who lost sons to war. This man who he and his vile church held signs thanking God for IEDs and with a megaphone proclaimed that God sent your children back dead for not executing all the f+@+&!s. This man who lead a church of hate and his legacy will only be pain, hatred, and bigotry. I will not celebrate your death Fred Phelps, because there is nothing to celebrate. I can only hope you died alone shunned by those you love as the news seems to portend.
Just wanted to give a shout out to you guys and gals. August was a hard month for you, Gencon was hectic as usual and the August orders were really long and hard work to get out. I know you Customer Service crew took a beating from undeserved tongue lashings, and tireless work, and you warehouse crew worked extra hours to get stuff out the door. So I will try and be at Paizocon 2014 and I owe all of you a round of drinks. And I hope you all know despite the inordinate amount of complaining you had to deal with this month you are appreciated.
I plan to start a list like I have in previous threads to show what has and has not been produced. I will start with all 3 Bestiaries, and work my way through every Paizo product. I will set links beside every single entry with a link to the paizo singles store with a picture of the miniature in question whether produced by DDM or Wizkids or another company. I will only include Pre-painted plastic minis. I will even include close facsimile creatures. I will do all this mostly for selfish reasons, if Erik knows what is out there then the stuff that isn't will get produced and as an avid collector I will get what I want eventually.
If you guys want to see a new cool take on the zombie genre check out this new british series.
And this is why they call me The Minis Maniac.
I was wondering if you could this one time send my $1800 minis order via UPS. I will pay the shipping I just want the minis to arrive for my birthday on the 31st. Since I am going to be alone on my birthday with my spouse away at a conference this would make almost all better.
1) Campaign threats detail a group of BBEG lvl 15-20 as campaign ending threats, 1 chapter per threat. You could even have some paizo staff personal campaign BBEGs maybe one of the runelords not yet detailed, any villain you could base a whole campaign around and a chapter about how to do it.
To be continued as I think of them....
Okay I will try and make this as respectful as possible, I doubt this will reach the eyes of the right folks. I will start with praise to the portrayal of strong independent female characters in the books, they are inspirational and media in general needs more of these portrayals. But I am a gay male and I would love to have a fantasy hero who is also a gay male, I'm talking the central hero who isn't effeminate and stereotypical but a gay male. I realize you guys may have to play it safe with your characters with a relatively new fiction line, but I hope someday to see such a central hero figure in fantasy fiction. I remain hopeful this may happen one day.
I just hate gnomes and anytime my players attempt to play the little bastards I make sure they die horribly. Don't get me wrong they may last a few sessions out of pure luck but eventually the reaper gets his due. Luckily my players don't yet realize I am doing it on purpose. So if the players don't realize it isn't that the mark of a good GM?
That's right you heard me!!!
So GAMA Tradeshow pictures on facebook showed us 2 unseen miniatures from the new Rise of the Runelords set. Including a COLOSSAL RUNE GIANT case incentive. As well as an awesome mini of Good ole Karzoug. On that picture slide show we saw:
Ain't I a stinker for breaking that news :P
But in order to be a real maniac I'll go even a step further you can see both Karzoug and the Runegiant here at Spoilers by Greyhaze
Your friendly neighborhood minis maniac signing out. See you all later when I find more forbidden knowledge mwahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!
Just saying, when my copy of Advanced Race Guide hits my door, I am taking a permanent black marker to my Core rulebook and blacking out a ll mentions of Gnomes. Then I will do the same to the gnome pictures. Then I will recreate kobolds as a player race, and tape them in the gnome slot. And to end it all I will black out all mentioning of gnomes in the Inner Sea World Guide, and add the story of how there were once gnomes who came from the first world, but the separation drove them mad and transformed them all eventually into spriggans.
Ok guys I've seen more than a few threads asking the staff questions, and then getting a bit miffed when they aren't answered. I think it's great that the staff maintain a messageboard presence and many times go out of their way to answer a few questions, but they have a lot of work to do. I mean look at how much material gets released on a monthly basis, they have to be busy. Sobefore you get huffy for not getting a personal response from the developer/ author/ publisher of your choice remember they are doing other things than constantly searching the messageboards for questions, and you are not owed a response.
