I like new 0HD races because they bring variety to the game.

I dislike new 0HD races because there are far too many poeple who do not understand the mechanics of 0HD races and the necessity of "X race as characters" rules and think the presence of these rules automatically means that the race is intended as a PLAYER character race. Sigh.

I believe he has retired, luckily.

Assuming there was a summon undead X spell, summoned creatures return to their home plane if reduced to 0 hp or less. Also, undead are destroyed if reduced to 0 hp or less. So, no.

Does this cornucopia of aquatic races foretell an upcoming mostly/all aquatic AP and/or Aquatic Adventures hardcover?

You may have heard about the Ruins of Azlant AP.

However, don't forget that the swashbuckler can only make one riposte per round, as this is an immediate action.

No, they don't. At least not in this setting.

I always enjoyed the fiction.

I much prefer having the short fiction (web fiction and AP fiction) to Pathfinder Tales because it was a different scale of fiction that was fun to read in an evening.

The Tales line occupies a different headspace.

I would totally subscribe to a PF monthly/weekly short fiction line, even if it was online or pdf only (the kind of thing I see on some Patreon things).

I agree on all counts. That would be a nice subscription.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I hope we'll still be getting the remaining fiction compiled as epubs, as well as the still missing webfiction compilations.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Anything?

Still nobody seems to have a copy of this - strange.

I hope to get one next month, otherwise i have to buy the badly translated german version.

Why do you think it is badly translated? I admit there were some gaffes in the first printings of the Grundregelwerk and Monsterhandbuch, but there have been numerous reprints where mistakes were eliminated.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

So the Encounter Codex seems to be pushed back.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Never heard of the krampus.

Usually there is only one spring hardcover, but next year, due to Starfinder, there will be no Pathfinder PRG hardcover release for GenCon, so this might be that.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Oh, this comes a bit out of left field at this time. But bestiaries are always welcome!

Well, actually he is really good at slashing things. Stabbing not that much :)


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Is it just me, or is class deck Sajan with a Kama (which is Basic) or a Kusarigama super strong? Right of the bat he gets to roll d10+d6+5 with these weapons, and with a skill feat and a power feat, which you get after playing only two scenarios with the guild rules, this rises to d10+d6+8, which is basically enough to defeat most monsters in the base set and AD1 without even rolling the dice. Is this right, are am I missing something here?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Garak is clearly an NPC, though.

In fact it's FILLED with RP potential, much like Worf in TNG -- being a "defector" from his own kind.

Only that the plot of TNG was not that the Federation was being invaded by the Klingons.

Do you know that each adventure path has a free player's guide PDF that, among other things, details what races, calsses and other options are or aren't appropriate for the adventure path?

You can find the Strange Aeons Player's Guide here.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Marco, I don't think this is the miniatures product, the price does not fit. This seems to be the adventure book.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Well the side treks were only there for two APs, and I guess they didn't really work.

Zaister, I will pose this to you, then.

Say you put up a poster asking for a posse to hunt down a bandit lord. You want capable, experienced people with the skills to get the job done. Then some yahoo comes up to you, and when you ask what he does all he tells you is that he's an adventurer.

That's great, but what does that mean? By using the term in-game, you're still going to have people asking what you can actually do, and requesting a list of your previous exploits and history before giving you the job. And it's bad enough when NPCs are doing it, but if a new PC is approaching the group, that's essentially a job interview. You need to make your case as to why the company should hire you on. Wasting time with a job title that doesn't mean anything can make you look foolish, especially if you never thought beyond that label.

As usual, I don't have the power to make anyone do anything. I am not on staff as a game creator, and if people don't like my suggestions, they're free to not use them. However, pointing out that someone saying they're an "adventurer" and expecting that to mean something when it could be anything from treasure hunter and arcane scholar, to assassin or pirate doesn't seem unreasonable.

I don't know, that is simoply not the kind of game I play. I'd probably say your hypothetical employer is looking for bounty hunters.

An individual adventurere migh describet his personal abilities in a certain way, sure, but as a group, I have no problem with them describing themseles as adventurers.

But again, I don't usually play games where the PCs are hired as bounty hunters or the like. Sounds boring. I prefer a campaign that has an actual plot that involves the characters in some personal way, beyond "I'm just doing what I'm paid for".


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I guess you'd also want to play a cleric of Asmodeus in Hell's Rebels and a demon in Wrath of the Righteous, right?

No.

Doesn't have anything to do with PC motivation for me. An adventurer is someone who goes on adventures. Nothing more, nothing less. Which is exactly what PCs usually do.

Anything beyond that is your interpretation.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

There is a pawn for Maznar in the recently released Pathfinder Society Pawn Collection.

PixelDust, are you playing 3.5 or Pathfinder? And what is your native language?

I like the fiction and would be sad to see it go, but I would not complain about more gaming material.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Yeah but the color scheme mostly sticks with APs. Although this one looks a lot like Jade Regent.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Two green APs in a row? Hm. :)

Anyway, there is no reason that the existence of Starfinder should substract any kind of content from Pathfinder. They are different games. There is no correlation here.

I want Ak, too!

Well, if Nirmathas is "legally" part of Molthune, isn't Molthune "legally" part of Cheliax by the same measure?

Looks much better now, thanks!

I'm wondering, is the Pathfinder advantage no longer applicable for Paizo PDF products? For example, I've added the PACG Season of the Goblins scenario and both the physical and PDF version of the Bigger Dungeon Flip-Mat to my shopping cart, but the Pathfinder Advantage is only applied to the physical product. I'm certain it used to be applied to PDF scenarios, for example, too. Is something going wrong, or has the policy changed?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I use ABP in my Iron Gods campaign, except that I dropped the weapon and armor attunement stuff. I remove magic items that no longer exist from NPCs, and add their automatic bonuses based on only class levels.

Which product is that?

As James already indicated. there's a full page ad for the new Call of Cthulhu edition. This is of course entirely fitting.

The company got savagely burned on The Art of Dragon Magazine- such a brutal shellacking, in fact, that we'll probably never see another art book from Paizo again.

We did actually get another art book after the Dragon art book: Visions of WAR, but I think it didn't sell well either.

THAC0 is basically the same as BAB, only counting down instead of up. In AD&D AC started at 10 and went down from there, so old AC 0 is the same as new AC 20. If your THAC0 is x, it means you need to roll x to hit that AC. So, in modern parlance that means you need to roll x to hit AC 20, which means THAC0 x is the same as BAB (20-x). Simple as that.

Um... what?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I haven't seen any one of these in 16 years of 3.0/3.5/Pathfinder, while playing 3-4 groups weekly.

Besides, what is broken about mounted combat? Unless you allow ragelancepounce nonsense?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Considering that Paizo's default campign setting is not "Golarion" but the Inner Sea, I wouldn't bet on any kind of AP set completely outside that region any time soon. Even Ruins of Azlant will probably start out somewhere in Avistan or Garund.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Legends Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Well, Reign of Winter was more telporting than traveing. But there was also Jade Regent.

Serpent's Skull did have its problems, but traveling wasn't one of them in my eyes.
