Will be available Jan 23.

Jan 23, 2015? Six months from now, minus two days seems rather specific. Any reason for this, as in, did I miss some sort of announcement?

Basically, nothing is canon unless you want it to be.

Events referenced in the novels as being "Golarion history" could be considered sort-of canonical, except they might turn out to be misleading information because no one in Golarion actually knows what happened in those times and the version stated in the novel is history "as far as the characters know it".

Thank you.

I would like to join, and bring a two-handed fighter into it. I have the time and would love to play RoW.

Andoran

I'd say not compatible, since gold dragons are metallic, not chromatic.

I might have agreed, but I once saw a house cat fight off a pack of stray dogs. It was big, might have been a good 20 lbs, and it sent those dogs packing, whining and hurt. If you don't have a squirt bottle, or if the cat is one of those that just gets angry when sprayed, you might have a bad time.

Please cancel my following subscriptions: Pathfinder Adventure Path, Pathfinder Player Companion, Pathfinder Modules, Pathfinder Tales and Pathfinder Comics.

Hopefully it's only temporary but I've got big school expenses coming.

After the iconics, of course, there's a long line of novel characters waiting for the pre-paint treatment. I'm just saying 55 figures per book would be a good start.

I failed at getting the Gen Con exclusive Varian from Reaper, much to my regret. You, sir, just made my week. :)

They aren't sold as sets, they come randomly in the Pathfinder Battles boosters. You can get the minis as singles here, like Harsk or Lini.

Andoran

Or you can buy the singles here on the site, there's more than 4 already out (4 came out in the boxed thingy, but the rest have been coming out 2 or so to a set).

Torag: BRIAN BLESSED. Honestly, he wouldn't even need makeup. Just give him the costume and he'll bring his own warhammer.

Toss in Mythic Vital Strike and doing ~1000 at level 20 is just about average for a fighter.

Biggest likely reason: Silver dragons are very cool, Huma and all from Dragonlance. Silver dragons are the #2 good dragon, and good dragons are supposed to be stronger than evil generally. But with just cold immunity, Silver dragons were only resistant to the very *least* of evil dragons, the barely sentient whites. Adding Acid immunity made them formidable foes for Black and Green, but still not overly dominant against the stronger Blues and Reds.

This is one explanation I would gladly accept as valid. I really love it when something in Pathfinder happens "because Dragonlance". No sarcasm, Dragonlance is my all-time favorite setting.

I simply assume that all magic has a Visible Spooky Effect.

Paladin casting Detect Evil? Her eyes shine with the light of her deity.

Sorcerer casting stilled silent Detect Thoughts? A vague blue nimbus appears around his head.

Seems to flow well with every single illustration of a spellcaster doing his mojo published in the books.

It may have to do with the glue used and your humidity levels. If the air in your home/city is just dry enough, it can cause the glue to crack and lose its gluey-ness. I know it doesn't help you and I'm sorry that it's happening, but I work in publishing and when you ship books to different climates you get some pretty unexpected results.

I once took a paperback printed in the UK on holiday to the Amazon. Within fifteen minutes of getting off the airplane, the book had swollen to at least three times its original thickness. It was part of a box set, and it never again fit its case.

I'm just trying to explain that this doesn't necessarily mean that Paizo's printers are using sub-standard glue, it might just be an unfortunate coincidence of it not being able to withstand your specific climate.

If you want to go for the Arclord of Nex PrC, it's great. Otherwise... it's been nerfed.

Andoran

I don't enjoy RPGs that much, mostly I'd rather stay home and read a book. It's just that the people I play with are more fun than my books.

Boost Xanesha. She's no longer the death machine she was in 3.5, she's a lot less deadly now. Have her recruit some muscle, a couple sinspawn with class levels should do the trick.

Fighters can't have nice things. Ever.

EDIT

Joking aside, it's "Don't be a jerk". Which is a really good first rule.

Core Rulebook only, mostly. Maybe a thiefling or aasimar, and dhampir... depends heavily on the campaign. Nothing much else.

Also? I have a strong feeling it's gonna happen (either show or animation (most likely animation)), why? They're already working on an audio book of RotRL, they've got novels and comics, where else could they possibly branch out to? They've done a board game, APs for long term adventuring, modules for short term adventuring, scenarios for both events and single sessions and I'd say yes, I'm pretty sure we can look forward to this (unless they've got a video game in mind first).

Well, there's this rather hush-hush little project they're working on called Pathfinder Online...

Novels, comics, an MMORPG... a cartoon is really the next logical step.

Andoran

Well... after reading King of Chaos (which ties in wonderfully with WotR), I'd say that the druids were killed and the position is now vacant.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Tales Subscriber

After growing up watching the D&D cartoon, I was absolutely disappointed by the movie. More recently, the Dragonlance movie... yeah. It still hurts to think about it.

If Paizo were to do a Pathfinder cartoon... I know I would finally not be disappointed.

Andoran

Remember that you're not exactly "combining" with the eidolon, you're sort of wearing a spectral eidolon suit. You don't lose your own hands.

"A synthesist summons the essence of a powerful outsider to meld with his own being. The synthesist wears the eidolon like translucent, living armor. The eidolon mimics all of the synthesist’s movements, and the synthesist perceives through the eidolon’s senses and speaks through its voice, as the two are now one creature."

Emphasis mine.

The answer is "because shut up, only aasimar can get early entry into subpar prestige classes, so take that, dreamspeaker elf!"

Can YOU tell me what he's talking about?

I saw that one coming too. As per a recent FAQ, racially-granted SLAs count as spells of the same level for qualifying for PCs.

But it's one of those questions where my answer is "if it smells like gouda, tastes like gouda and runs like gouda...".

Not really, I don't have anything against people playing gunslingers. There's one in the RotR campaign I'm running right now and it's fun to have around. I don't think the other posters necessarily do, either.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Tales Subscriber

"At 1st level, a gunslinger gains one of the following firearms of her choice: blunderbuss, musket, or pistol. Her starting weapon is battered, and only she knows how to use it properly. All other creatures treat her gun as if it had the broken condition. If the weapon already has the broken condition, it does not work at all for anyone else trying to use it. This starting weapon can only be sold for scrap (it’s worth 4d10 gp when sold)."

I have to agree with Xaratherus, it's not that the gun is broken, it's that it is treated as if it were broken/had the broken condition. It even goes as far as saying that if the gun were actually broken, it would not work at all for anyone else.

My first wish is for a Distant Worlds AP. A close second is a Nex-Geb-Mana Wastes one. Either one will make me happy.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Tales Subscriber

Well, I have one coming with October's subscription and I'll make sure to take pictures (unless someone beats me to it).

@GeraintElberion Dunno what to tell you, I've always heard it said like this.

Perchance the list has yet to be updated, considering it's the weekend and these just went up.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Tales Subscriber

Big enough to fit the core rulebook and then some. I'm pretty sure it's going to be one big box for the mailman. I really feel sorry for that man, October is one awesome-packed month.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Tales Subscriber

It was a hard choice between this one and the Beginner Box one, but this image is just... a classic? Can it be a classic already? It's certainly iconic.

"Big enough for your Core Rulebook and other campaign essential books..." as long as I can fit two hardcovers and four campaign setting books I'll be happier than a dog with two tails.

Andoran

Hello, Paizo people!

Please cancel my Pathfinder Roleplaying Game subscription (only this one, I want to keep the superscribtion and comics). I'll probably pick it up again in the future, in any case.

They haven't "already payed for" them. They have paid for temporary access to those tools. That was made abundantly clear to you when you signed up.

NEW content is what has kept them around all these years.

Who? The minority of users who don't play 4e and subscribe only for the magazines?

Maybe I am a minority. Does that make me any less valuable of a client?

In any case, I wonder how many 4E players will move on to DDN. It might be 100% (which is probably what WotC is hoping for), it might be less.

I'm wondering if DDN will continue to offer support for 4E once the new edition rolls out. If it does, cookies to them. If it doesn't, then those who played 4E but don't plan to move to DDN (however many that may be) will get a rough deal once again.

Hence, the subscription come February has less value than the subscription now (for those who assign value to new material - for those who measure it by volume, the December and February subscriptions have equal value).
It is possible to assign value to new material just as one assigns value to volume of material. The former adds to the latter, when it is added. Now, on the other hand, if one judges the value of their subscription by the promise of future material (as I've pointed out) then they are justified in perceiving their annual subscription as less valuable, as they may have previously expected to receive twelve additional issues of each magazine when in reality they will only receive half of that. In such a case, WotC is reportedly refunding portions of subscription fees to customers who request it.

I am a subscriber, and will continue to be one until December. At that point in time, the subscribtion will lose all of its value for me.

See, I only subscribe for Dragon and Dungeon, and have done so since the online subs became available. Every month I would download the PDFs and print them out, and make my own dead tree versions. I keep yearly backups of every digital issue so far, too, so the library doesn't hold any interest for me.

Funny thing, though, I don't play 4E, and while I did give the DDN playtest a try, it really isn't my cup of tea. I read the articles and adapt what I like to PF. The digital tools hold zero value to me.

Now I'm really saddened to see these magazines go.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Tales Subscriber

Yeah... I can't really find any logic to that, either.

Unless the Starstone has a different effect on someone who already has mythic tiers - Iomedae did complete 10 other Acts before entering the Starstone Cathedral.

I already received my PDF and the book itself was shipped last week. I can't speak for anybody else, but I had no delays.

I'd also like to see the server wiped once a year or two. Not entirely, maybe...

I wish there was some sort of (permanent?) permanency in the game. That there were certain dungeons that could only be cleared out once, and that there was and end-game. Once the final dungeon has been cleared and the final evil has been defeated, the world resets, and the party who did it get some say in what the next world will be like.

The next world comes around, there are minor changes based on what was achieved in the previous iteration, and everyone starts off fresh. But there'd be an in-game record of who the "ultimate heroes" of the every past world were.

She does not, however, gain other benefits a character of that class would have gained, except for additional spells per day, spells known (if she is a spontaneous spellcaster), and an increased effective level of spellcasting.

The way I read it, you don't get additional Domain spells, the same way a wizard would not get additional School spells.

With Mythic Vital Strike, a Two-Handed Fighter 20/Mythic 10 with a scythe can do a completely obscene amount of damage (around 1,100 points, depending on the stats) in a single round.

Which is how high a PC would go in Wrath of the Righteous.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Tales Subscriber

Rule of simpler explanation says that no, you can't. It's not saying that you can, either (that would need for it to say "this also applies to teamwork feats acquired by other means).

It's just like everyone before me has said, once the first sentence says you can't, you can't.

If the efreeti is the one granting the wish, she can choose how to interpret it. It's perfectly within her ability to have a mortal say "I wish for an army" without specifying who the army will serve.
