So the community funds the project with two kickstarters and we still also have to pay to be in the beta?
Has any one at paizo or goblin works risked any of there money? I may end up eating that question, but it just seems like wth man, part of entrepreneurial endeavors is risk, and with the risk there is a chance for reward.
Its almost insulting to ask for more I think.
sorry if this post is late, I was just one catching up on the blog.
I was originally pledged at the 100$ level, there was an issue and the card I used I thought I might be canceling so I canceled my kickstarter pledge.
I ended up keep the card and so I re pledged at the same level.
My question is if there is any way I can still get all the daily rewards that I would of gotten had I not canceled. I originally pledged on like the 16, so I think I would of gotten all of the daily rewards.
I am not sure if there would be any way for the folks over seeing this to check my original pledge date, but I though I would at least ask.
I was wondering if trying to run paizo adventure paths and modules set in golarian with low magic would cause any problems with the stories in those products.
I just do not like the idea of being able to get any magic item from any large city, I like how Tolkien did it in middle earth, magic items were rare and held by few.
But would this conflict with story lines and such in paizo adventure paths or modules? Would it cause any problems dose any one think?
ooo please let me play in your campaign. I have spent all kinds of money on the rules books,(Core,APG,UC,UM), but I can not find a local game to join, so I haven't ever actually played a game.
I would play either a paladin or a cleric. It is Saturday morning, I will work on my character and post details by the end of the today hopefully.
I am going to try to build either an quest arc or a campaign and I am looking for some k9ind of ancient being, either a god or less than a god, but it must be very very evil and powerful.
This being is going to be at the center of all of the evil happenings in my campaign.
Thinking about some kind of lover craft evil comes to mind. The kind of thoughtful, malevolent, pure evil. TH kind of evil that knows your name and will come after you alone.
I was hoping I could find something like this in golarian so I do not have to make things up.
I want to build a ranger for a pbp game, this will be my first pathfinder game.
I want to use both a bow and sword or maybe spear. I want combat to be my main focus. I know rangers are the guides, and scouts with all their skill points, but I want to mainly focus on combat. But the idea of being the parties scout or guide is cool for fluff.
So I have the core, APG, UM, and UC, at my disposal.
I just got my copy of ultimate magic and was reading throught it, and came upon the spell books section, but it dose not seem to actually state what these are for.
When a caster gains levels she can pick new spells, and memorize so many each day. So what are these books for if she can pick her spells every level? Are the spells in the book in addition to the ones she picks when she levels?
All that it says is that here are spell books, they contain spells.
Unless I am not very observant . . .
exactly, and also it dose not follow the open world that true MMOs follow. GuildWars is an online co-op rpg.
I just hope Paizo puts the development dollars and time into this game so it dose not fail, or stagnate.
Every free to play MMO I know of is like and untended garden. It still bears fruit, but only because the rotten fruit from last year dropped its seeds.
(edit)It also worries me because as of late there has been a growing discontent among the pc gaming community with developers releasing broken and unfinished games, and I think with a small company, and as a result a small name, if Paizo dose not get this right the first time out it will take a lot to come back from.
Big names can afford to piss people off and release crap games, they have some killer titles in their past to keep customers, Paizo dose not have that.
I was just wondering why the mmo format for the game.
I always thought a single player fantasy game would work best.
With the Pathfinder adventure paths, Paizo has huge stock pile of game material for a base game and expansion packs.
I just do not see MMO as the way to go.
This game is dead before it lives if it is going to be free to play, or any variation there of.
Name one notable free to play mmo that continuously makes head lines? None! There are no free to play WOWs or free to play EVEs.
Free to play is another way to say, decent into mediocrity.
Every single free to play game out there is infested with some kind of farmer trying to make real world money.
I am very disappointed.
This is the first I have heard of this. Was it announced here at Paizo's sight and i just missed it?
EDIT: The link is broken. if you go to the site and do a search for Pathfinder it should be the second result down the list.
EDIT: from wiz-kids site, http://wizkidsgames.com/blog/2011/08/01/paizo-and-wizkids-launch-ongoing-pa thfinder-battles-prepainted-miniatures-line/
I think you will do just fine Triga. Do you know what module or adventure you will be joining?
This going to be for a pbp game over here,
I'm not sure what kind of campaign ill be playing. I'm going to make a character then post it in the forum and look for a game.
Thanks for all the help. Here is what I have decided on.
str 14 + 2 = 16
I wanted to have str and dex at 16, I think 16 is a decent score, because not having a lot of experience with the game I may decide I like melee more later on after playing or I may decide I like ranged better, so I figured I would keep it safe.
for feat I went with toughness and quick draw.
my starting weapon will be a short bow, a long sword or maybe a scimitar used two handed, and also a kukri.
Thanks for all the help.
Thanks for all the great advice. But now i am split between using a one handed sword, duel weilding two light weapon, or using a sh weapon. Archery will still be my main.
When using a weapon if my off hand I take some kind of penalty right?
If I use a composite bow, my strength is used for my attack not dex right, its not both strength and dex?
Also, I was thinking about carrying some pilums to throw at my enemies and reduce there ac from shield. i think that is how they work if I remember what I read. Is there any thing I should know about that?
I am in the process of building my first character to play in a pbp game. I want to play a ranger using the guide options from the apg.
I am unsure about my ability score though. I know I want wisdom at least at 14, should it be higher?
I am going to choose the archery combat style, so I know I need a high dex, how high?
Also I want my ranger to be able to wield a sword if need be, partly for role play reason, but also just in case. I plan on taking the climb and swim skills also, so what should my strength be?
Now also for hit points, I want my character to be tough, for role play reason, but also more hit points is always good. where should my con be?
This is all going to be based on a 20 point buy. I will be using the core book, and the advanced players guide.
So what is all your advice for my stats? I seem to be leaning toward none of my stats being to high and just spreading my points around.
Also, I am not really interested in a stealthy character but some the rangers class features center on stealth. if I ignored stealth would this really be a bad thing?
That leads me to my next question. For skills I am thinking, dungeoneering, geography, nature,climb,swim, survival and heal.
DISCLAIMER: I am a new player and have never played a game before. This is my first character.
I am interested. I am a completely new player. I have been trying to get a game going were I live but have been unsuccessful. So I have been lurking on these boards for a game to join.
I want to repeat that am a new player and have yet to play a game. I have read the core book, parts of the bestiary, and most of the inn sea guide.
If you plan on doing your game on these boards I want to join.

I would say something like the wotc 4e adventure site books. Like the hammer fast book or vor rokuth book.
I think if they did it like they did the shackled city, with the separate books of maps in the back and changes like that it would sell well.
I just placed a bid on ebay for the ROTRL AP, I think there a lot of people who do not own this product because they did not here about it till it was out of print. This would add to the people buying the hardcover edition.
And introducing it in pathfinders birthday, it would sell even better.
Maybe this would be the time to introduce new iconic characters. Like a male paladin and a new female fighter.
