Hi Vic, any updates on potential dividers? Thanks!

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Class Deck, Companion, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Is the 1200 card storage count including the removable trays or just the top two rows? Just gauging what kind of room the case will have for dice etc with a full set of cards inside.

I agree some dividers would be very nice. The ones in the deck box were great. I'd be happy with some dividers similar to those or custom labeled dividers for the card types.

Also single deck boxes with Pathfinder art might be a nice additional product since it looks like the dual deck box would not fit insideinside this case.

I kind of like the idea of scenario rewards having the option of a random draw from your deck or from alternate class deck. However there are bookkeeping issues there.

I disagree that dual-decking is going to be a significant power level increase. It is giving you some more card options sure, but you are still limited to the number of type of card slots for your character. Playing through non-organized play you have access to any cards you find and can get multiple upgrades per scenario. In organized play you are limited to just one regular deck upgrade, so even if you made it available at the start having access to a second deck of cards helps bring back some of that flexibility without being a big power boost. Leaving it open to the whole deck rather than choosing specific cards, or unlocking single cards at a time, is much easier to track and allows players to tailor per deck/character/playstyle. Taking too many cards from the second deck just dilutes your main class and I don't think it would happen much, but to be safe there could be a limit on how many cards can come from the second deck (at least 2/3 of the deck must be from the primary class deck, or no more than 8 cards from the second deck can be in your deck at any time...)

I definitely am an advocate for add-on decks either individually or as a set, physical or printable, that help correct the problems with the original 7 class decks. However even if those come out, dual deck play might be viable to explore as a way to allow for more creative deck building and keeping frequent guild players engaged by giving them more options to try out.

I love all of Broken Token's inserts, but for traveling with my PACG set for weekly games I am still really looking forward to this UltraPro case being a thing. I hope they are able to work it out, maybe in time for the next set.

Incidentally, I also kind of hope they come out with alternate art card sleeves. Maybe themed for each set or just different Pathfinder artwork to give people options.

Grand Lodge Venture-Agent, Illinois—Plainfield aka Tiercis

This multi-classing idea could be a simple way to assist with those more troubled characters, and breathe some new life into the original 7 class decks. In the groups I played with, we also had several occurrences of not taking rewards. However I never felt or heard that this was due the deck being too good already, but instead the best it could be given the limitations of the class deck (mainly that they really wanted/needed new cards but had nothing of value available in the class deck remaining to add.) Since each character would still limited to their deck list I don't see how merely having a little more option available is game breaking.

I think I may try this out to see how it plays.

Grand Lodge Venture-Agent, Illinois—Plainfield aka Tiercis

I think it would be pretty cool if promo cards counted as whatever adventure number you are currently playing. That way if you are in box 3 for instance, and you happen to pull one of the very few promo cards, it can be used as an upgrade of it's type for adventure deck 3 or lower. (Fire Sneeze would unlock a Spell 3 slot in this case) It would make finding promo cards in the box just a little more fun, and wouldn't hurt the game. It doesn't come up very often with 12 or less in the box at any given time, and no trouble remembering since it scales with the adventure.

Looking forward to the new class decks. I'm just a little sad that we are not going to have any new class decks before the new Organized Play series starts, and are not likely to have "fixes" to the original 7 before then either. :(

There is a regular group at The Wandering Dragon in Plainfield on Tuesday nights. We are just about to start adventure 5 of the organized play, and I'm sure we will run the Season of the Righteous as well.

So just to make sure:

Alhazara encounters a barrier that is intelligence, knowledge, or constitution 11 to defeat, none of which she is particularly great at. No problem shes got her gem of charisma! She chooses to roll knowledge as she as put +2 into it. So now its a D12 +2 right? And her pal Lirianne throws in a blessing of abadar, so now its 3D12 +2 and that barrier is pretty much toast.

Curious: Same scenario as above but the blessing is one that would give two dice to charisma checks. Does she get two dice from the blessing since she is using her charisma die, or does she get one die only because it is a still technically a knowledge skill check? It seems that it should grant two dice since it essentially makes the check Knowledge = CHA+2 so the check is now charisma based.

What if the character were attempting the constitution check instead? If replacing the die changes the die only and not the type of skill, then it would remain a CON skill check, charisma blessings would give only one die and constitution based blessings would count for two dice. That seems to match the rules but does seem consistent with the above charisma/knowledge example.

What do you guys think?

Count me in this camp too. I'm sure the miniatures will be cool, and part of me wants them, but I've really found the Pawns to be so much easier to store and manage, while still looking great. That makes me not want to buy the miniatures sets, but I don't want to miss out on the exclusive cards either...

Having played scenario 5 with two characters a couple of times, I recommend adding an extra location, at least for small groups. The scenario wasn't particularly difficult, given that it is the final scenario of adventure 5.

In 2 player games, the characters you play and luck can really factor into the difficulty. Adding additional locations, especially in this box, for 2 player groups would ramp things up and might be over the top for many pair ups.

The Dark Menagerie struck me as the laziest level of the entire book. Any clown with graph paper and a 2b pencil can create a dungeon where every room is a different biome with a different bestiary monster in it.

I was expecting something totally different from Ed Greenwood, I read that level and was like 'That's it?!' Just my opinion.

In the context for what the level was when this place was occupied by the Azlanti exile, and then how it changed over time as the magic faded, I think it's a thematically cool level.

This item was more fun than expected in a game I ran recently:

Boat, Folding
Source PRPG Core Rulebook pg. 1
Aura moderate transmutation; CL 6th
Slot none; Price 7,200 gp; Weight 4 lbs.
Description
A folding boat looks like a small wooden box about 12 inches long, 6 inches wide, and 6 inches deep when it is inactive. In this mode, it can be used to store items just like any other box. Yet when the proper command word is given, the box unfolds itself rapidly in the space of a single round to form a boat 10 feet long, 4 feet wide, and 2 feet in depth. A second command word causes it to unfold even further into a ship 24 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 6 feet deep. The folding boat cannot unfold if there isn't enough open space for it to occupy once unfolded. Any objects formerly stored in the box now rest inside the boat or ship.

In its smaller form, the boat has one pair of oars, an anchor, a mast, and a lateen sail. In its larger form, the boat has a deck, single rowing seats, five sets of oars, a rudder, an anchor, a deck cabin, and a mast with a square sail. The boat can hold 4 people comfortably, while the ship carries 15 with ease.

A third word of command causes the boat or ship to fold itself into a box once again, but only when it is unoccupied.
Construction
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, fabricate, creator must have 2 ranks in the Craft (ships) skill; Cost 3,600 gp

I'm a fan of alchemy, and consumables like feather tokens, silversheen...

Wayfinders & bags of holding are good low-mid cost choices.

I think ioun stones and figurines of wondrous power can be neat.

A friend of mine loves this little item:

Aegis of Recovery
Source Rival Guide pg. 5
Aura faint abjuration and conjuration; CL 3rd;
Slot neck; Price 1,500 gp; Weight —
Description
An aegis of recovery grants its wearer a +2 resistance bonus on all saving throws made to recover from an effect, such as poison or lingering damage from an attack. This bonus does not help against preliminary saving throws against such effects. Should the wearer ever drop below 0 hit points, the aegis cures 2d8+3 points of damage to the wearer and then crumbles, becoming useless from then on.

I'm rooting for Matt, with Scott a close second. Their encounters were my favorites in the competition with good area details, compelling story and great use of the monsters chosen. While it might be tricky to really bring it out in a game, that bit with the will 'o wisps in Mienka's Cauldron was haunting....shiver.

Some good series I have not seen listed yet:

The Barsoom Series by Edgar Rice Burroughs (great pulp adventure)
A great sci-fi series that is more recent is The Lost Fleet by Jack Campbell.
The Iron Druid series by Kevin Hearne shows some promise. It's what I'll call modern fantasy... a little like the Dresden Files.

Historical mentions:
Aubrey/Maturin series mentioned earlier in the thread is fantastic.
If you like swash & buckle I recommend Captain Alatriste by Arturo Perez Reverte.

When I need more copies of the common minis, I use the pdf copy of the pawn set and print the pages I need on cardstock. The quality is not as nice as the purchased ones, but they still turn out decent. It's a good cost effective way to add extras.

Love the ideas suggested for minis to cover the different nationalities and the alternate race options from the race guide. I admit summons would be pretty useful too.

Longshot wish: I'd love a Kingmaker pawn set, or more paper minis for the Kingmaker series.

This is an interesting item, and I really like the choice of three rolls given the cosmology (first/material/shadow plane schism) but I think you've over-priced yourself and the description is a little confusing. You used Gate in your construction, and mention that it lets you access the first world, yet it seems instead of actually traveling there you just reach into the first world a bit to create this stability affect which is great just much less powerful. If you change up the spells required & lowered the price you'll be more balanced.

Dawnflower Ankh

The concept of the magically created dawnflower blessed oasis is pretty nifty. I agree that its a little underpriced, mostly because of the channel boosting ability. Your main issue though is some of the logistics need tightening. For instance, water flows at 1 gallon per minute for 24 hours... that's a lot of water. I'm guessing you meant that the oasis was present for 24 hours, but there needs to be some more description on the maximum amount of water, what size pool of water is created, does the endure elements radiate from the edges or the center of the pool etc. Very cool item though.

Third ability is good - I think it could be detailed a little more cleanly but it's close.

Saw a couple of splitting items, and this one was the one I liked better. Your use of the two colors in the cloak was a nice touch. Downside to any splitting item though is that they are hard to keep track of in game and almost impossible to write cleanly. For instance, how do you handle initiative, and which can activate re-joining? Good try though!

Siegebreaker Cymbals

It's pretty innovative to use cymbals and to affect damage reduction. Neat using the metal inlays of the cymbals to describe which damage reductions they affect. The bardic performance use is pretty cool though the wording is a little complicated there.

I saw someone mention that the name was a little misleading, which I kind of agree with. DC 19 to trigger seems kind of high to me, and the enhancement bonus bit seems unnecessary (though probably brings your cost down.) Tricky to have them priced as a single, but you need two of different types to have any effect. I'd suggest having them sold in pairs and have them negate the damage reduction instead... but the swap mechanic is a clever use of the cymbal crash.

Sash of Singularity

Weathered Quiver
I adored this item. It has a great theme and tight mechanics which match that theme. That's mojo. I don't know what the rational for fall being acid damage was other than that it was the leftover energy type and season though. The only problem is that its use is based on the season. You should have just let the season be chosen on activation and it would have been perfect.

Verdict: Unless I am glossing over something glaring, you got robbed. This should have been top 32, and I was sure it was going to make it when I saw it during voting. I voted for this every time I saw it.

Thanks Saint! Since I fit the energy types into the elemental aura spell, it was sort of the last one picked and the least obvious match. I thought it was still fitting with the entropy of fall represented by acid.

The name sounds a bit boring, but it's actually a clever pun, and one that I thinks works for this game. The formatting is off in several ways, but this might just be you copying it into this thread, not the way you actually submitted it. At any rate, don't forget things like making the names of spells lowercase and italicized in your text. I like the general idea. I think it's creative and clever without being overpowered. I like the way you adapted the elemental aura spell, although some might actually see that as a lack of originality. I like the way you described it, although I would cut out the word "often." I voted for this item several times, and I've saved a copy for potential future use, so thanks for sharing a neat idea!

Thanks! I did have better formatting in the official submission but you're right about missing the italics on the spell name, I'll watch for that. I really appreciate the feedback!

Hi Firedove,

Weathered Quiver
Aura Moderate transmutation; CL 6th; Slot Shoulders; Price 5400 gp; Weight 2 lbs.

This finely crafted quiver appears lightly worn by the elements and often features outdoor landscapes tooled into the leather. Once per day a command word can be spoken to imbue an arrow drawn from the Weathered Quiver with the power of nature. The imbued arrow will deal extra elemental damage plus an additional affect which can be negated by a successful saving throw. The damage type and additional effect vary, similar to the Elemental Aura spell, except that instead of being chosen they are determined by the current season. There is no effect on a miss.

Winter Arrow will deal 2d6 extra cold damage on a successful hit. Target will also be fatigued unless it succeeds at a Fortitude save DC 14.

Spring Arrow will deal 2d6 extra electricity damage on a successful hit. Target will also be staggered for 1 round unless it succeeds at a Fortitude save DC 14.

Summer Arrow will deal 2d6 extra fire damage on a successful hit. Target will also catch fire unless it succeeds at a Reflex save DC 14.

Fall Arrow will deal 2d6 extra acid damage on a successful hit. Target will also take 1 point of ongoing acid damage for 2 rounds and be sickened for the duration. Successful Fortitude save DC 14 negates both the ongoing damage and the sickened condition.

What names have been chosen for your Kingmaker campaigns, for both the Kingdom and it's cities? I'm curious whether players opted for serious realistic names, more fantasy inspired names or more comedic names?
