Got my copy this week, too. What an awesome book!

Did I miss somehting, is the woman on the cover a named NPC, or is she just supposed to be generic?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Yeah, as a software developer I can imagine that this might not be trivial. I was just wondering.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

All kinds of new products are listed in the "Product Discussion" messageboard with "Paizo Publishing, LLC". But isn't it "Paizo, Inc." now?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I really want to play this.

Just for the record: I actually liked Mass Effect 3, even better than Mass Effect 2 (which had been a disappointment for me, because it basically did away with quite a lot of things I enjoyed in the first game), and I didn't even have to have the expanded ending. And I think EA has far far bigger failures in their book. Sim City, Batllefield 4 come to mind.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

That fits perfectly.

The Strategy Guide was put together and printed before the recent FAQ ruling that reversed that rule and introduced the exception that the corners—as in D&D v.3.5—are indeed threatened.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

My current subscription products have now shipped in two separate packages, but I'm wondering, shouldn't the Strategy Guide I preordered have also shipped with my current subscription?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

According to the listing in the werewolve's change shape ability, you use the rules from the polymorph spell to determine the exact effects, which does the same as beast shape II. So you gain low-light vision, scent, and trip, as well as a +2 size bonus to your Strength and a +2 natural armor bonus.

A swarm is always composed of 4 squares. These need not be in a 2 by 2 square formation, the swarm is shapeable and can assume a new shape with each move. The only restriction is that its squares remain contiguous. So basically, at any one time the swarm can form any one "Tetris-shape".


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Glad to be a part of it!

There is a spell in either 5 or 6 that gives you a few hand sizes to choose from for a turn.
Shapeshift is an Adventure 6 spell and the power you choose to use actually lasts for the rest of the scenario. It's a pretty beefy spell.

Ah, Interesting. I don't have my AD6 yet...

Hm, I just tried to read a few threads from the PFO forum, but I couldn't understand a word what they are even talking about. Might've as well been Chinese.

I don't really have time and interest to play, so I'm not averse to selling it.

How do you get a hand size of 10 for Oloch?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I've only read the first book, and that was when it was new, and I have coincidentally just started on Kushiel's Dart again to get to read the rest finally. I know I loved it!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

It's like a punch to the guts. Nimoy's portrayal of Spock made being smart cool, and he was a role model for geeks everywhere.

I almost can't believe it, but I'm actually crying over this.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

A sad day.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Warrior, as an NPC class has CR = level – 2.

Here's a picture of Vordakai right next to a miniature of Khalib from Rise of the Runelords.

Any news on the update for Adventure 3?

What's going on there?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Weird.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Here' what they look like.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I've only now just opened up my box of this product form my subscription (so first printing)—my group is taking its time on this adventureand I noticed that two of the villains, Delvahine and Ordikon, seem to be misprinted with a heavy red smear over the artwork and/or check boxes. Is this a common occurrence or are my cards "special"?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Awesome thread! Thanks for all this great work. And it looks like I might put it to some use soon.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Play a bit of Borderlands (first game of the series), and you'll know exactly how Scrapwall feels, especially once you get to explore the area around New Haven.

If a player asked me that, I'd say you can fly underwater, as long as you can also swim in the air.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Sounds plausible, yes.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Thanks for the explanation, Hawkmoon. What about adding the cards to an alreaddy ongoing game?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

So, how are the cards to be put into play? Just add them to the box, or any special rules?

So, basically, you want that no real threats exists for the characters.

For the most part, all the things I say are for BOTH sides of the table. If the PCs use save-or-death effects or mind control all of my (the GM's) monsters, then I don't get to have any fun either. And if the PC concocts some spell combo or something that the Badguys need a specific alchemical item to solve, and there's no reason for them to have it, then the PCs just get to steamroller the monsters and I, as the GM, don't get any fun.

The fun for me, as a GM, comes from challenging my players, not from one-shotting them for ONE bad roll, or for them to one shot my story-arc boss from one bad roll on his part.

Damn, you were too quick. I deleted my comment again because I though it came across a bit rude and inflammatory, and I didn't actually feel like that.

What I'm saying is that the "20th level build" is basically irrelevant to the actual game.


1 person marked this as a favorite.
Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

My theory is that people who only focus on what a particular "build" can do at 20th level are probably just "theorycrafting" and not really playing those.

I suspect for most Pathfinder Players the game is long over before 20th level becomes relevant. It's not even relevant for PFS.

Sometimes I have the feeling that some people believe themselves heroes when they mention "power gamers" in a contemptuous way.

Not at all.

Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

My guess, by the way, is, that this new rulings has nothing whatsoever to to do with the power level of certain prestige classes. Classes that basically only were published for this game to satisfy 3.5 backward compatibility in 2009. I believe that Paizo don't really care much about these classes that basically are just legacy, and I think rightly so. There are tons of options now that were not available then, and I think the game wouldn't be poorer if these legacy classes wouldn't even exist. And if they don't satisfy the need for power gamers to be at the top "tier", then I just don't care.

I think the real reason the ruling got reversed is that is easily can have any number of unforeseen side effects in other parts of the game, and probably would wreak havoc on something they have in current development that we don't even know about, and thus, it had to go. Besides the fact that—considering consistency of the rules—the old FAQ ruling simply made no sense.

The non-announcement of the change is puzzling indeed, though.

I don't think it's wierd. I want to enjoy the theme of the game I'm playing.

It's the same reason I steer away from military themed games...not my thing.
I love the game play of PACG, but I don't like pirates enough to spend $100+ on this version. I'll wait for the next set to be released and play a theme I enjoy.

Fair point, I guess.

This kinda reminds me of a recent patch for Heroes of the Storm where Blizzard took away a "must-have" talent for Tyrael that was the only thing keeping him viable in the game. Now he's strictly worse than all the other warriors in the game and no one(who wants to win anyways) plays him or wants to see him on their team. Blizzard stated a rework was in the works but apparently he's meant to be useless till then.

This post (emphasis mine) shows exactly what kind of players it is that are now complaining about this ruling: those who what to win the game. Except that this just isn't that kind of game.

If only there's a language that is both curvy and incorporated dots, that would fit the description perfectly.

Arabic could probably fit the bill, but is also too easily recognized, and I think the recognition breaks verisimilitude for things like these.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Regarding language: The Georgian language has a cool alphabet that can be used if you want something that looks alien and is not immediately recognized by everyone. It looks like this:
