Thanks, Hawkmoon.

...as well as for the wrong cards getting into RotR decks 3 and 4 ...

Huh, what were those?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

That does not change the fact.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Just as a notice: using a held charge of a melee touch spell for an attack of opportunity is certainly an option, but not for ranged touch spells, as "ranged touch attacks cannot be held until a later turn", unless the spell specifically says so.

The version on d20pfsrd.com does not refer just to bows but refers to ranged weapons.

d20pfsrd.com, however, is not an authoritative source of the rules.

I believe it is clearly stated that the ship comes from Androffa.

For all those who want something more off the beaten path: go and check out ENworld's ZEITGEIST adventure path (Act One collection available here). This is something very different, and even gets a raving review from Endzeitgeist.

The success of the games seems to indicate that it's not actually boring if played by the rules.

I like realizing cool ideas and playing with my friends the games we like in their premium version. Premium means we are using all original rules,

I seem to remember you said you are playing with multiple copies of promo cards, such as Poog of Zarongel, and using more than the standard number of locations.

That doesn't sound like "using all original rules" to me.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I could imagine that some of them don't even exist yet.

No they are not. We don't know the scenario names for adventures 4, 5, and 6 yet.
We do actually, from the character sheets.

Oh, ok, that went by me, somehow. I'll have to take that back, then. :)

Backed this in Kickstarter, and I can't wait to get my hands on the hardcover. EZG's review is spot on. This is a great adventure, one I'd love to run.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

It's important to keep in mind the maxim "cards do what they say, cards don't do what they don't say."

So, if it says "a check" or "any check", it means any check, by any character. If it says "your check", it means your character's check, and only that. If it says "at your location" or "at another locations", if means exactly that, if it doesn't say any of these, it means at any location. And so forth. Just look at the text.

Oh maybe I get to be in front of the queue for a change this time. My October stuff is shipping with this month's order (it had been returned to Paizo for reasons unknown). Let's hope!

I'm kinda with the others here. I understand modifying your box for fun (I've done it too for increased difficulty, though I normally play with the default), but adding Poogs is just going to make things a cakewalk.

Next stop: remove those pesky enchanters!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

You know that it's UltraPRO who produces this additional stuff, not Paizo, right?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

With Poog, it makes especially no sense to use more than of him, because he's a unique named character, and you will notice that all named character only ever have one card.

I don't even have my October subscription yet.

You'll find that map on page 58 of Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Lost Kingdoms, in the Thassilon section.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Should I be worried now that my October order, shipped on October 16, still hasn't arrived here in Germany? It's been more than 6 weeks now. It used to be that orders would arrive within 10-14 days, as estimated ("Estimated 6 to 10 business days in transit"). Anyone else still waiting?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Is there actually a definition what is a combat check?

Is a Melee check always a combat check? If it is made against a barrier such as a chest? If it is made to acquire a boon, such as a weapon?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Oh. Print available. Would it be possible to upgrade my PDF order to the bundle somehow?

Hm, my December subscription products are now listed in my sidecart, waiting to be shipped "with a future subscription shipment". Feels weird.

Got my book today, and it looks awesoms! Great work, everyone!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

How many pages is this?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

220 pounds? What are you guys ordering there?! :)

In other news: my order shipped. Hooray!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I'm GM for three groups, and I'm currently running Skull & Shackles (book 5), Reign of Winter (book 4) and just started Shattered Star this week.

Previously I've completed running Rise of the Runelords (TPK on the final battle, though), Curse of the Crimson Throne, Legacy of Fire, and Kingmaker, as well as Shackled City

Started but not finished: Serpent's Skull (abandoned in book 3, because of the unplayable mess this adventure is, and general ennui in the group), Age of Worms (twice with different groups, one abandoned around "Encounter at Blackwall Keep" as players were eager to start Rise of the Runelords, and the second time after "The Spire of Long Shadows", players got somewhat disengaged and wanted something new), and "Savage Tide" (which we ended after "Into the Maw" because players became overwhelmed with the complexitiy of 18th level full D&D library characters and also were eager to start Kingmaker). Also "Way of the Wicked", which I actually liked, including the cartoonish nature of its villains, although I can certainly understand Gorbacz's aversion to the purple prose, oh yes. We abandoned that after two of the players moved away.

As a player I've completed plaiying Council of Thieves (as Dorian Davarius, a human monk), and currently I play Florentin Zandor, a human bard in Jade Regent (book 4).

There probably needs to be a FAQ, but it's not an errata level FAQ. The ruling comes from the fact that D&D v.3.5 had an explicit rule calling out the exception of threatening the second diagonal:

D&D v.3.5 SRD wrote:

Threatened Squares

You threaten all squares into which you can make a melee attack, even when it is not your action. Generally, that means everything in all squares adjacent to your space (including diagonally). An enemy that takes certain actions while in a threatened square provokes an attack of opportunity from you. If you’re unarmed, you don’t normally threaten any squares and thus can’t make attacks of opportunity.
Reach Weapons
Most creatures of Medium or smaller size have a reach of only 5 feet. This means that they can make melee attacks only against creatures up to 5 feet (1 square) away. However, Small and Medium creatures wielding reach weapons threaten more squares than a typical creature. In addition, most creatures larger than Medium have a natural reach of 10 feet or more.
Note: Small and Medium creatures wielding reach weapons threaten all squares 10 feet (2 squares) away, even diagonally. (This is an exception to the rule that 2 squares of diagonal distance is measured as 15 feet.)

This explicit statement is not part of the Pathfinder RPG rules, although here it is worded in an open way:

Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

That diagram goes directly against the second diagonal threatening rule as was propagated on the forum by both Sean K Reynolds and James Jacobs. Hm.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I'm just leaving this here.

Ah, and yes, you deserve it, Hawkmoon!

PS: wasn't me either.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Just as a perspective: I don't even have my physical October books yet.

Hawkmoon: I think is referring about people talking about the new books in their respective product threads.

More like "used to" than "usually". The last two month the local shop here in GERMANY had the products for sale before mine were even shipped or I got access to the PDFs. And this month seems to be gearing up for third in a row,

Chris, the watermarking is back on the character sheets. May we get this removed again, please?

Except on the final page in each file. Strange.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Great!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

That would make sense.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

The S&S sheets don't have the check marks either, but the also do not have the check box, while the RotR sheets still have a – now empty – check box, which seems wrong.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I don't understand the removal of the removal of the proficiency check marks in the newest version. What's the reason for that?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I like playing on the mat, but we noticed one thing: there's not really a space to put the token cards.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Thanks for adding the cover images!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

yeah that probably makes sense. Thanks, Vic.
