This sounds like a system I could enjoy. And it also sounds like a system that some of my other players (that are new to RPGs in general) could enjoy as well. Like Chuck Wright said a few posts above he feels he could teach this (D&D Next/5e) to his 5-year-old ... heh heh not that some of my players are 5 yr olds ... but a simpler rules set might be easier on them. ;)

I am looking forward to D&D Next/5e ... I'm excited to see that Forgotten Realms is the initial "setting" (FR has been my favorite campaign setting since I got into D&D way back in the late 80's early 90's).

I will get the starter set (actually off July 15th) and may even download the free basic D&D PDF for my players to peruse. Not sure if there will be a "switch" ... but I for one love knowing that "Tyranny of Dragons" was outsourced to Kobold Press! Knowing that Wolfgang Baur and Steve Winter worked on Tyranny of Dragons makes me believe it will be a FANTASTIC adventure/campaign/storyline.

So, I'm considering it strongly. (Oh, not necessarily switching mind you, I'll actually get to be a player in Mummy's Mask (later this year) as I'm wrapping up Rise of the Runelords). But likely running the Tyranny of Dragons adventures ... I hope.

I know, I know ... "Wrath of the Righteous" hasn't (quite) concluded yet ... but I've been thinking about this since "Mythic Origins" came out and decided to start this/ask this question. (If it's been asked elsewhere or before forgive me) ... anyway, I happen to think that the next Mythic AP (say around 2016 or 2017) should occur on Iblydos (Golarion's analog to Greece) ... and it could have a very "12 Tasks of Hercules" vibe ... or even "The Odyssey" or "Jason and the Argonauts" or heck all three of those stories. The Developers at Paizo now have a pretty good idea about crafting an AP that makes use of their "Mythic Adventures" HC ... and they likely have enough feedback to know what worked and what didn't for their first mythic AP ... that another one in the near future isn't out of the realm of possibility.

So I say that the next Mythic AP is set on Iblydos ... and to accompany that we could get a "People of the Isles" Player Companion (or whatever an Iblydos player companion would be called) as well as a 64 page Campaign Setting Iblydos Gazetteer.

Thoughts? Opinions? Comments?

Well I for one am very happy about this encounter pack for Reign or Winter (and also the forthcoming Reign of Winter PF Battles case in April) - is there ANY chance that we could see a second encounter pack for Reign of Winter with say Baba Yaga's Dancing Hut and one of those animated Russian Tanks? That would be fairly awesome (and it sounds like folks really want to see the Dancing Hut at least).

Wow! I don't know what I was expecting when (a few weeks ago) you "teased" us with "huge" news in the works ... but this evolutions encounter packs (White Dragons) is AWESOME! Like others, I am also hoping for other colors/categories of dragons done in this format. (And yes Matthew Morris, I agree with you, gimme Medium, Large, and Huge Blue Dragons next ... please). :)

OOooooh ....a triple combo here (or would that be a quadruple combo)?

Mythic Adventures (hardcover)

Mythic Realms (PF campaign setting)

Mythic Origins (Player Companion)

The Wrath of the Righteous (PF Adventure Path)

WOW!

This will be something I will definitely pre-order. Cool!

Any chance of another set with say Ice, Mountain, Desert, and ... erm ...

some other basic Terrains?

Just curious.

Let me add "Congrats" to Miss Amber Scott as well, very excited to see her 1st foray into the AP line (and BIG TIME kudos on being the first woman to write an AP chapter). :)

And to echo the Haunted Jester ... I too am curious ... who does have the cover art chores for Wrath of the Righteous?

***Hoping for Steve Prescott.*** :)

End,

I too appreciate the reviews you do, they often help me out in other ways (as I've expressed in a fairly recent review of yours of an item of mine).

Keep up the stellar work my friend, you do us all a HUGE service, that cannot be underscored enough.

YAY! Jim ... I'm sooo happy that you are a part of this AP. (I remember years ago when I was "flirting" with a home-made "Linnorm Kings Vs. Winter Witches" AP and you and I had gotten to "talking" back and forth). Sadly, my plans regarding that home-made AP never got off the ground, but I am very excited to see what you and all the other AP authors have in store. This will be a fun read I'm sure ... and eventually a great AP to GM for my group ... once I finish my "return to Varisia" plan. ;)

Seriously Jim, BIG congratulations! Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

Well, well, well ... :)

And the nice thing about this is ...

Spoiler:
the added use of this "mini" towards the end of RotR ... seems to me there is a gargantuan blue dragon dwelling in Xin-Shalast.

Very interesting. :)

I think we have 11 base classes in the Core Rule book and 6 Base Classes in the Advanced Players Handbook and One more Base class in the Ultimate Magic, and Finally one more Base Class in the Ultimate Combat. We also have 3 more Altertante classes, One in the APG, and the other two in the UC.

This would mean that there are 22 classes to choose from.

Do we need any more classes? Do we have too many? Do we have too few? What do you think?

Thanks

Hmm. Elyas, you ask a very good question (or series of questions). And while I can certainly understand that some folks might feel PFRPG has too many base classes, I like the number of classes ("core", "base", and "alternate") that we have now. I can't honestly think of any niches or roles that aren't covered in some form or another. The archetypes really seem to be the new "darling" of PFRPG. And I like these as well.

I guess I'd say we have just enough.

But, that's just my opinion. :)

I got my email today that it was available for download (also "warned" that it was a rather LARGE file). So... I'm going to wait it out for a bit (maybe even hold out for the TOME itself... "thud"). ;)

Thank you Greg, Bill, Chris and EVERYONE associated with this product and HUGE undertaking.

You mean that street ball game on Yancy Street, with me & the Yancy Street Gang vs. the Thing (ala Fantastic Four fame?) Yeah we did some stuff, at that place... and the Thing was involved.

The next poster thinks that there is always room for pudding... black pudding that is.
