Nope, that one just won an ENnie award last month, and there aren't all that many copies left, so... Not on sale yet.

The Exchange Kobold Press

About 24 hours left on this sale. It's 30% off the bundle, the hardcover, or the PDF until Friday night.

The Exchange Kobold Press

Elves and dwarves. Hmmmmm. Added to the wish list.

The Exchange Kobold Press

Yes, anywhere in the Margreve forest could be a reasonable location.

You'd want to put it near a big river to replace the ocean, but trollkin raiders against a fishing/logging village on the outskirts of the forest definitely works.

Any new advanced races planned in the (not so immediate) future?

Nope. This volume pretty much covers the ground.

Hero Lab files are coming together!

In the meantime, the book and the PDF and the bundle are all on sale at 30% off (which ends Friday, September 30).

Incidentally, just how is the amount of starting wealth arrived at? Is there some sort of arcane formula for figuring it out or is just a random amount determined at the time of class creation?

If there is a formula, it is hidden in the Wizards or Paizo vaults somewhere.

From a reverse-engineering perspective, it just needs to be enough to buy minimal starting equipment. That number is (by necessity) higher for combat classes that buy armor and weapons than it is for non-combat classes.

The Exchange Kobold Press

I'll see about getting that added as a free download on the Kobold Store as well!

Heck, maybe we should add it to the PDF appendices.

Is there an intention of a new printing of this, made available here or through the Kobold store? And if so, is there a way to be notified when such a printing happens?

It is currently on backorder. We'll have more in October, which the kobolds will ship first (and Paizo not long after that).

The Exchange Kobold Press

Not bad, given that the hardcover is out of stock. :)

What about elven kingdom sourcebook? The one mentioned in Midgard CS?

By the way, I plan on running Empire of Ghouls, but I'd like to run several adventures before, sort of like Midgard AP. What adventures would you recommend?

The elven kingdom sourcebook has never gotten off the ground, sadly. There have been at least 2 attempts but it hasn't clicked yet.

Depending on how much kitbashing you want to do, some ghoul adventures or concepts to look at include:

Kingdom of the Ghouls (Dungeon Magazine #70, 2e)
Imperial Gazetteer (Kobold Press ghoul kingdom, PF)
Open Grave (Wizards of the Coast, includes a temple of Doresain, 4e)
Kingdom of the Ghouls (WotC adventure for 4e)
Book of Lairs (Kobold Press, 5e, includes a ghoul outpost)
Blood Vaults of Sister Alkava (Kobold Press adventure, forthcoming)

The Exchange Kobold Press

We've learned our lesson about digital maps. We offer these maps without labels, and in both gridded and gridless forms (so people can use the squares as designed, or use hexes, or resize the squares as needed).

A review would be very welcome!

The Exchange Kobold Press

I like those reviews from out in the wild! This book has been quite a hit since Gen Con.

Anyone playing the Hell's Vengeance or other evil adventure paths should definitely check out the section on evil-aligned campaigns, by none other than Robert J. Schwalb, the malevolent mind behind Shadow of the Demon Lord.

Mine all mine...don't touch wrote:
Will these new paths be collected and printed in a volume two?

Hmmmmm. Well, the New Paths series has certainly been popular, and some of the classes are now staples in a lot of campaigns. Others, like the shaman, have since been adopted or at least their names used for Paizo base classes.

So, maybe revisiting them is worth considering. Right now, we're just seeing how the sales go, what questions people have, and generally whether we have enough in the tank for a run big enough to qualify as "Volume 2." Even if not, I think Marc has done some great design here.

The Exchange Kobold Press

Anyone who plays 5E Midgard is likely to find it highly relevant, as will anyone who plays a "power of the land" geomancy kind of magic in their campaign.

The Exchange Kobold Press

I like the originality of the design. Reminds me of the spontaneous casting Shaman that Kobold Press did years ago.

Almost as if they.... Hey, same author! ;)

The Exchange Kobold Press

I know I'm doing going this route with some NPCs. Seems very appropriate for the non-combat, advisor types as well as prophetic figures and hermits.

The Exchange Kobold Press

We can't update the description ourselves, sadly, but perhaps a Paizo gninja can?

The Exchange Kobold Press

Lessee, we shipped Wrath of the River King for Pathfinder, so the next adventure will be the sequel to Cat & Mouse. Likely to ship in October.

And the 5th Edition updates are happening for those using that system.

Plus a major expansion to the villains, secret societies, and NPCs is looking good. That one includes details of several of the evil kingdoms and groups.

In addition, we're working on a free series on the blog that will visit sites in the East. Not in great detail, but a great journey all the same.

The Exchange Kobold Press

Thank you, Liz!

By the way -- Is there any chance that there will be any more hardcover versions of the Tome of Beasts made available through Paizo? It looks like there is still interest in that product here.

Yes, Paizo should have additional books in stock in a few weeks. Though in some ways this is an odd place to buy a 5th Edition D&D title, I'm happy to see Paizo continuing to support the whole range of the hobby, from Star Wars to Cthulhu to D&D and FATE.

Sounds like fun! Will there be a Pathfinder version?

We've certainly converted 3.5 and 4e material to Pathfinder in the past (Halls of the Mountain King, Wrath of the River King, Courts of the Shadow Fey, to name three examples).

So, no reason not to do the same here, if sales/interest seems to justify it.

The Exchange Kobold Press

Surprisingly dark and dangerous for an adventure with "Belches" in the title.

I await reviews with interest.

Done. Do I get a sword of Qorgeth slaying?

YES, yes you do!!

::hands over sword of Qorgeth slaying::

(Thank you to everyone who reviewed Tome of Beasts, here and at ENWorld. Reviews do matter, and the pros and cons help designers and editors up their game.)

The Exchange Kobold Press

Need 2 more reviews at ENWorld. So close!

The Exchange Kobold Press

Yep, there's some definite horror-leaning monsters in TOB that feel right at home in Barovia.

I like that this GM decided to up his game.

You're right, Brinebeast, table of contents is a great idea, and thank you DM Jeff for posting it.

And yes, Demons, Devils, Dinosaurs, and many other TOC entries are 6 or 10 monsters.

I understand picking up the Southlands Bestiary takes care of a lot of them, but what other books/pdfs would I need to pick up?

You don't need all of these, but just for completeness, here are the other sources available at Paizo.

Roughly in order of decreasing size/monster-osity (the last two in particular are more setting/adventure books than bestiaries):

Midgard Bestiary for Pathfinder RPG
Collected Monsters of Sin
Book of Drakes
Dark Fey
Dark Roads & Golden Hells
Journeys to the West

Maybe reviewing pawns is just too easy? But yeah, curious to see a review here, where this style of pawns was invented.

The Exchange Kobold Press

There are discussions about a Pathfinder version. If and when those discussions turn into an actual project, we'll certainly let everyone know.

Is there a list of monsters by type?

There will be lists by Type and by environment in the next couple weeks. A volunteer is compiling them now, we'll review and do a quick layout, then post them on the Kobold blog and/or store.

The Exchange Kobold Press

The Paizo folks are ecumenical that way! I've seen store posts for Star Wars, Warhammer, Call of Cthulhu, not to mention board games, Shadowrun, Munchkin, and the Gamers movies.

Reviews popping up everywhere. I think people are excited about this book.

The Exchange Kobold Press

It's like we're beating the drum for something amazing. Wait: we are!

I got an email from someone asking if the book was out yet, so clearly need to bang drum louder! :D

Oh hey I did maps for this!

Awesome, glorious maps! Which are available in a separate and non-system-specific form that I totally failed to upload.

::scurries off to importune the server gods::

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

That's a start! Next up: asking the mighty Liz or her Gninja apprentices to set the PDF to go live.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Yeah, I think we'll errata at least one or two beasts into monstrosities. Druids have enough toys as it is.

Vermin is just a flavor word here.

Swarms in TOB do have to roll attacks, as per 5E. They do not auto-hit.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Smilodan, that's a quick read and a keen eye. Some responses just these.

1. Correct, there is. It's deliberate, though I realize it's not to everyone's taste, and it is different than the MM on this point. Some of it is just our naturally cruel designers and developers. Agree that poisoned condition could get more of a workout in a couple places, though math-wise it's more-or-less a -4 penalty.
2. We checked our math more than once, but errors can certainly creep in. Please send in any suspicious cases, so we can update them for the PDF version!
3. That's.... A problem. I'll take a closer look.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Also available in Kindle format, though that's only available through Amazon.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Tasty, tasty pawns.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Going to make my home game easier, and also awesome for anyone running a Midgard or Southlands game, whether you play Pathfinder, Fantasy AGE, 5th Edition D&D, or 13th Age.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Still waiting for the print version to show up here. It was for sale in the Paizo booth at Gen Con, so it exists, really!

Very happy to say that the print edition should be live shortly as well!

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Thank you for that review, Marv!

And hm, gotta get a TOB and Pawns listing going here, too.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Yes, "processing" means it has likely already been shipped. The shipper eventually goes through and hits "completed" on all those, but when you are sending out 2,000 packages or so...

You should see it in the next few days. A few have hit Massachusetts today, so they are definitely trickling into the NE.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Yes, there is a [url="https://koboldpress.com/kpstore/product/tome-of-beasts-for-5th-edition/"]print+PDF bundle available from Kobold Press[/ul] directly now, and a similar bundle should be available from Paizo fairly soon.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Marv and Smilodan, thanks for noting corrections! We'll roll them into the revised PDF for September release.

If you find other things or have a list of the spelling/other issues, feel free to send them to Koboldpress@gmail.com with a "TOB Typos" subject or similar. We do want to update and improve this book over time.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Sure! I don't know that I would call them pawns, exactly, but we're definitely going to offer digital tokens that represent the monsters as well.

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Yep, it totally crushed the servers for an hour or two, but it's better now.

Also, the pawns are available for sale. Gotta go figure out where those links are for people who want bases....
