I am looking to move to the UK in about 9 months and wanted to feel out the waters to see if there are gamers in Cornwall near Bude who would be interested in playing some Pathfinder/D&D?

I am looking to run Shattered Star with my first group of UK gamers when I get over to the Island, and I thought I would start getting some names under my belt now to tap when I get over there. (Assuming everything goes as planned....)

I am planning on running Shattered Star with some class caveats, and I am also looking to run a 2nd edition Dark Sun campaign that I've run for 3 different gaming groups over the last 18 years.

If you are in Cornwall and have access to Bude, let me know so I can start to get some plans and some questions answered.

I love that picture in Ultimate Combat of the Gunslinger taking out the undead minions in a pseudo-Western type of setting.

I would be interested in an adventure path where some of the more obscure classes like the alchemist, gunslinger, and oracle would have a fun time shining.

I liked the Gunslinger series of books from Stephen King, and could see some concepts adapted from there for an Adventure Path. Obviously not the same plot or bad guy or setting, but general sense of "other places" similar to how Reign of Winter is doing things.

I think this could be pipe-lined a few AP's into the future to allow the return to some traditional fantasy trope type of AP's but the next time the devs are looking for something interesting to do, focus on some of the cool classes in their own settings.

There is a lot of potential there IMO. You could even visit another planet in Golarion's system if the idea of extra-planar travel isn't suitable. I prefer planar travel....like a layer of the abyss outfitted with undead and Quippoth.

I have been playing PFRPG since 2010. I started back in 4e before that after having a hiatus off of RPGs since 2e. I never played 3.x and PF is my first foray into that style of play. While engaging on other forums, there has been talk about PF having this overpowered Druid and cleric that were I guess overpowered? In 3e? I haven't seen evidence of this since I've been playing and I've been to Paizo Con and played with a variety of groups. Is this something Paizo fixed? Was it ever really a thing? Does it still exist and is it easy to do and fairly common?

Thanks!

I just got off the phone with Airport Marriott reservations and they told me the $109 room block is sold out and there is a new room block for $149/night.

I went ahead and reserved the room, but the PaizoCon banner information should change to update the new block with the new rate.

I have a player that is playing a Demoniac prestige class and he has reached the level where he can begin to summon various types of demons to the prime material plane.

He desires to summon a succubus and have her bestow him with a +2 to constitution using the "profane gift" ability.

Would this be a proper usage of the power to summon and what would be the implications of summoning a succubus to the PMP for a few rounds, receive the profane gift, and then send her back to the abyss.

Is this a tactic that should work without any hitches to bestow a profane gift to each member of the party? Is the succubus automatically compelled to bestow this gift on the summoners whims? What if a different demoniac summons the succubus in a different location and requires the same? Is there a % to roll to see the odds of that happening daily?

I can see the profane gift ability being flavorful when using the succubus as an NPC or as a monster that is designed to ingratiate a potential victim into serving the succubus, but as a method for increasing ability scores I don't see that as a particularly viable way to go about it.

What are your thoughts?

I have seen the theme repeated over and over in the individual Adventure Path forums -Adventure paths place too much on the shoulders of the DM, when they should be able to run them without much prep work.

After running some of the AP's myself and looking back at what took the most time to prepare, the obvious result is the lack of a roadmap through the AP for the GM.

Ideally, I would like to see each AP consist of a flow chart or plot map complete with event/encounter numbers (and corresponding page numbers) as well as the various branches the plot can take within the confines of the AP.

This would go a LONG way in easing the burden on the GM, and would give the GM a 10,000 ft. view of the overarching plot direction of the AP.

Please Paizo, give it a try in the upcoming AP's reign of winter. Your GM's and ultimately your players will thank you for this helpful tool.
