Hold til the 15th of December please.

Please cancel my comics and miniatures subscritpions I will pick them back up when I can.

It says both shipped and payment method declined on my subscription page and no message for pending order and no option to retry the payment method. So I am thoroughly confused.

Awesome detail on the imp. I think Erik has taken advice well from folks I remember when the line first started and the suggestions given and he has taken them all to heart.

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?

You can go ahead with it on the 15th and all will be good.

Please wait to ship this until the 15th. Bit tight on money this week I afraid.

Hey all Canadian now living in Bedfordshire looking for a regular gaming group or to start one. I am in the town of Potton near the Sandy rail station. I have a huge collection of miniatures Dwarven Forge terrain and of course various gaming rulebooks and resources.

1) the promo miniature is not on the order for some reason.
2) there used to be an option on my account to make sure 1 promo ships with every case but I can no longer find that option. :(

Everything seems in order except my Adventure Path #92 is missing from the email.

**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?

Unfortunately until finances pick up I need to make a sacrifice. But i will pick it up again in the future.

Many believe the attacks that started yesterday are related to the ISIS threat against Canada. None of that has been confirmed. So far:
2 Soldiers run down by man in truck in truck in Quebec
Shots fired on Parliament hill, while parliament was in session and the Prime Minister was present

It's so sad to see this happening in my home country :(

I realized I want to know what the miniatures involved will be first. Unlike paizo there has been very little previews involving the product in question.

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.
The most tragic part is I would love to support more 3pp companies. But guess what all those damnably stupid pdf releases ruin it for me. I have to have a book in my hands or it's just a no.
What is wrong with me. Am I just a technological luddite?
I don't even care how crowded my gaming shelf gets. I would rather have that than a full hard drive.......

Awesome more commoner minis and a leucrotta. Good preview.

I had some cool product ideas that may or may not seem cool to paizo folks but here goes.
1)Golarion globe.
Yes an actual globe. Where I know the full globe has not yet been developed this idea could work out in the future with an awesome artwork globe.

2)Deluxe world maps (Limited edition)
This is a fully deluxe item where you take a golarion region do a fully detailed out artistic flavored drawing and put it on a faux backing that rolls up in a scroll tube that is also artistically done.
a) Taldor- done in a european medieval style map drawing on faux pressed cloth backing into a detailed renaissance like scroll tube.
b) Osirian- done in an ancient egyptian theme illustration on faux pressed reed papyrus that rolls up into a suitably egyptian style scroll case
c) Land of the Linnorm kings- Done in a very viking esque mapping technigue on faux goat leather rolled up into a very scandinavian flavor scroll case.
d)(insert suitable Tian Xia nation here) done in semi authentic asian themed artword done on faux pressed bamboo slatted mat rolled up into an asian style scroll tube.

3) The book of the Damned (limited)
Basically a limited release that includes all 3 book of the damned series as well as suitable support articles about demons, plus demons revisited, some fiction written in as appropriate. Make a suitable artistically carry case that looks like stitched leather from various demonic and humanoid sources, where the hardcover and artistic prints will sit inside.

These are just a few ideas I had mulling around my head. I know they may be stupid but I think they would sell.

Whats the deal guys. The minis preview is one of the highlights of the entire weeks worth of blog. How about we bump some other stuff and give us another minis preview mid week to make up for it?

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.

Bulette- DDM Huge size mini Giants of Legend DDM Mini Large size Dungeons of Dead

If you guys want to see a new cool take on the zombie genre check out this new british series.
Brief synopsis. 4 years after the rising, everything is under control. The zombies are referred as PDS sufferers (Previously Deceased Syndrome). And they can now be treated to remember their past lives. They are processed through treatment facilities and when ready they are sent back to society for "Reintigration" along with a makeup kit and contact lenses to better fit in and daily medication. The series follows Kieran Walker who died in 2009. Kieran killed himself after his best friend Rick dies in Afghanistan via IED. He is sent back to his family after treatment and struggles to live in a town very much set against the undead and unwilling for reintigration to happen. Really cool and definitely worth a look.

With Shattered Star releasing in January we should be hearing what the next Pathfinder Battles set will be.
I'm not expecting to get an announcement here, just an idea when and if said announcement will happen. Come on guys throw us a bone :P

Sorry for the inconvenience guys. All should be good to process and ship order # 2307870

Woot finally a cool demilich mini!!!!!!

And this is why they call me The Minis Maniac.
If you look at the merged room photo, that blue shelf case is completely full of DDMs as well as the large tupperwares beside it, as well as the container on top of the tupperware. And as well as a couple office bos beside the case. I know I have a problem but I just can't stop myself :P

Woot hill giant!! DDM did a few Hill giants in their run but when it came to giants it just never seemed like enough. And Amiri looks great.

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.
I know it would complicate things a bit that I'm in Canada, but not really that far away in Canada. So let me know.

I was looking forward to the first preview of Shattered Star Minis for today. Is that still happening?

Let's face it, gnomes are the least popular PC race and for good reason. Let's choose to just drop them come Pathfinder 2.0 and use a new innovative PC race that is Pathfinder exclusive. I think that would be the best solution.

They are super helpful minis line for roleplaying. So far I think they just have one set but it I love it already.


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.
2) A gazetteer on Castrovel, even though I know this is a far shot I would love to see it.
3) A whole 64 page book on the planet of Casmaron as it interests me greatly. As well as a book on Aucturn.

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.
P.S. Please don't use this thread as a political platform or a place to comment on homosexuality, it just isn't the place. Disagreement with my request is fine but please no more than that.

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?

Just heard of your promotion, and I just wanted to say congrats you deserve it!!

Also I would like to know what happened to Erik Mona.

Awesome Kobold and redcap!!!!!

It's the highlight of the week. Where is the Pathfinder Battles blog entry? I understand yesterdays blog entry was important and all but the project is already funded so lets bring on the minis!!!

Soooooo awesome!!!
Woot first!!!

Looking for a glue that I can use on my terrain to add fake grass and my local gaming store. Is there any details you can give me on this item?

That's right you heard me!!!
Luke was a whiner.
Anakin was an idiot. So by extension so was vader
Yoda quotes are annoying.
Wookies look silly.
Han solo wasn't a badass really just a criminal.
The saga had borderline incest.
The villain was a barely mobile old man.
The ewoks were okay only because they were cute.
And Bobba Fett looks like he stepped off the set of The Rocketteer (which was an awful movie therefore Bobba Fett was also awful)
The only redeeming character was Jar Jar and he was only shown in one movie.

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:
-4 figs in a regular booster
-Regular boosters will be 14.99
-Huge boosters will have 4 figs
-Huge boosters will be 24.99
- Set will be released August 2012.

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.
