One bit of advice: unless you are using the Realms or Ravenloft setting, my advice would be to publish on DriveThruRPG, Paizo, Open Gaming Store, and Tabletop Library under the OGL.
You preserve your ability to use your book elsewhere (like in print, or in non-DMs Guild releases like adventure), and you get a much higher royalty than DM's Guild offers.
For free cover art.... Dover Press is your friend. You could also commission new art from an artist just starting in their career; check DeviantArt for artist galleries.
They are charming folks over at Wizards! It was very kind of them to invite me.
As a related topic: I really, really wish that Paizo staff had a podcast. They're at least as entertaining (possibly more!), and it would be great to hear them speaking about their favorite projects and campaigns and triumphs.
Currently not planned. Though if I had to pick, I think we'd avoid the semi-precious stones (save those for drakes), and do diamond and maybe jade.
However, we have plans to do psionic variants if/when those rules become official, and plan to add more art to the PDF if/when we hit the Gold sales level.
Very happy to announce that the Southlands Campaign Setting has been chosen as one of the Top 10 Releases of 2015 by Endzeitgeist!
The details are available in Pathways #57 (free download at DriveThru, doesn't seem to be here on Paizo yet).
And we made the Top 10 Downloads in the Paizo newsletter!
As a further supplement to the adventure, and a thanks to everyone who has picked it up, we've also released a free map of the Arbonesse region over on the Kobold store.
In addition, an overland detail map of the whole Arbonesse Forest is coming together, and should be available by the end of the month.
It's a good fit for Kingmaker in tone and theme, but it's not written with Mythic tiers in mind. Though in my experience, it's probably easier to ramp up a power level than it is to ramp it down.
For what it's worth, there's a third Southlands adventure in the works right now as well. It's a lot of fun to design.
And for an unofficial, proto-Southlands adventure, The Forgotten King's Tomb is also set in the South.
The Hero Lab files for the Southlands are available, containing all the new races, feats, spells, bloodlines and archetypes from the campaign setting to get your Southlands heroes working in Hero Lab. Huge congrats to Karen and the whole digital team, including the QA testers at Lone Wolf, who made this possible!
Assuming you already use Hero Lab, you can get them from Lone Wolf here.
5th Edition Midgard is relatively new to 5E support (since August 2015), but it has a steady stream of releases coming in the next few months to a year.
Migard currently has the core hardcover setting book, a Southlands expansion book in high detail with downloadable map, two books of heroic races and backgrounds, and (as of this writing) 4 adventures.
I'll agree with Norman that it's really tough to see any support for Greyhawk in the last 10 years or so. Which doesn't mean it isn't an awesome setting (because it is), but it certainly is possible to run through the canonical materials.
Neat! I agree it does tilt a bit to weekly PDF releases, and I notice it only goes back to October 2014, but it's still great to see this.
I'd agree with Jason and Rite Publisher that the Kickstarter numbers are a whole different thing (and likely outweigh the PDF sales by a good amount). Kickstarter has certainly changed the industry, but it's good to see the Paizo newsletter mined for data too.
Thanks for compiling this, Distant Scholar.
Yes, indeed! The shadow fey have a way of showing up whether they are wanted or not, and there are plans to bring them back as part of a Spring adventure and a Fall release.
No, it assumes that the party has fought the Cult of the Dragon several times (completed Hoard of the Dragon Queen), but has not yet faced Tiamat.
EDIT TO ADD: It is also, of course, playable as a standalone encounter in the Realms, though it requires some familiarity with Hoard of the Dragon Queen.
A bundle will be available on Paizo whenever all the elements come together, sometime next week.
@Axial, looks like PDF to backers very soon. We're shipping the print books to backers this weekend.
