That is a bit odd. I am going to look into that and get back to you. I have a suspicion that the effect of that ray will need to change. Looks like it was a left over from an earlier version of the poison mechanics.

While we are resurrecting this thread, has the above ever been addressed? Jason's comment was more than five years ago...

Wow, these Ileosas are just awesome.


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

Thanks!

It seems I'm not getting Pathfinder Advantage on this product when I add it to my shopping cart. Is this intentional?


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

I don't think you could even compare sales data for the limited editions. The Runelords Collectors Edition was a $200 item, while the Crimson Throne Limited Edition went for $75. Also, I guess they had very different print run sizes.

Actually the definition for loot is

Mummy's Mask Rulebook wrote:
Loot: Loot cards are unique in a couple of ways. The other boons can be found by exploring locations, but loot cards are only given out as rewards for completing scenarios, except in very rare cases when other cards give them out. They are automatically acquired, and so they have no check to acquire. Also, loot cards list a type, such as “weapon”; apart from the way loot cards are acquired, loot cards behave just like other boons of that type and count as cards of that type rather than loot when played. If a loot card ends up in a location deck, you automatically acquire it when you encounter it.

Honaire obviously qualifies as the "very rare case" where it is given out by another card, in this case Estra's character card. No rule or definition is broken here.


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

I believe this mechanism is also designed that he can't be encountered or acquired from a location deck by anyone that isn't Estra.

Indeed, thank you, Lone Shark and Paizo, for this great game! Also, thank you, Obsidian, for the mobile version!


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

It's not an "Anniversary Edition", by the way.


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

Something seems to be off with this book's OGL page. Not only does the OGL section 15 think that this is Pathfinder Campaign Setting: The First World, Realm of the Fey, the ad on the lower half has blurbs for books like Fey Revisited, Death's Heretic and the Kingmaker AP, which fit nicely for the First World book, but the pictures associated with these blurbs are from other books that fit well with Horror Realms. Weird. :-)


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

My pet peeve with the Knowledge skills is that for monster identification you have to make a skill check but you don't know for which skill. That leads to either the GM asking "show me your character sheet and roll" which is clumsy or the player rattling off multiple check results which costs time and is somewhat silly.

So I have removed monster and hazard identification completely from the Knowledge skills, and created a new skill that serves exactly for this purpose. I have called it Ecology, and it works as you can read here, if you are interested.

I have also moved magic item and aura identification from Knowledge (arcane) to Spellcraft, and since I am using the Background Skills system from Pathfinder Unchained, all Knowledge skills are now simply background skills.

I just got an order creation mail for an order of comics set to ship separately with UPS fo $50 shipping, but I think my subsriptions should only ship once monthly. Can you please stop that order and hold the comics for the next usual Pathfinder shipment?

Thank you.

Yay for LEGO Pathfinder!


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

Personally, I am OK with this being in the RPG line, but I still have to wonder why they decided to go for this experiment and not put this book in the Campaign Setting line, where, I think, given the information we have, it would be a better fit.

Well, can we ever get these epub collections? Is there maybe even a timetable?

To be blunt? Significantly rewrite the beginning volume of this AP.

As written, it starts in a strained and rushed manner, the encounters in the Old Fishery are FAR too easy, there's just no motivation or reason to care about it -- ANY OF IT -- and it's all over before it even starts. Later, the XP point curve in Eel's End is potentially 100% utterly broken if the PCs resolve it via diplomacy (as frankly, they are intended to do). Above all, the PCs are not provided with enough opportunity to care about Korvosa, the Crown as an institution, or the Queen as a person. Story wise, it's a failure.

It's just a crappy introduction. There's no point in pulling punches. I think it's substandard work.

I like the rest of the AP a lot. I think Seven Days to the Grave, in particular got all the editorial love as it was being developed in the Pit between Wes and James J.. Problem is, Nick Logue's installment is one of the weakest introductory volumes in any Paizo AP ever written. I am sure there were VERY good business and practical reasons for this at the time (It was developed as Paizo's new incarnation as a business was being founded and RotRL and Golarion was taking up much of JJ's time, too) and I do not blame anybody for how Edge turned out. It was a very stressful time at Paizo. It was doubly difficult trying to get vol 1 written before the Guide to Korvosa was complete and having a Vol 1 to an AP written from outside of Paizo must have been a great challenge at the time. The fact that Seven Days to the Grave is so much better underscores this. Nick Logue is a great author, too; however, this just isn't up to his normal quality.

Still, the proof is in the pudding and I think Edge of Anarchy needs a substantial rewrite to make the grade as it is not otherwise up to the quality I have come to expect from Paizo. Its deficiencies are not addressed in the Anniv Edition.

Accordingly, in my own campaign, I have almost completely rewritten it. That was the...

So, would you be willing to share your rewrites?


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

Thanks for explaining, Alex!


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

Alexander, is this perhaps because of the now-deleted discussion on the Blood of the Beast product thread? If so, do you think the product will return unedited?

Just for the record, I miss the adventure path item and face cards. I loved handing those out to the players.

I very much doubt that a Second Darkness collection would include the chevalier prestige class at all. This class was part of the Cayden Cailean article in the then-quarterly series of articles on deities. The spherewalker from the Desna article in #2 was not updated in the Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition, nor the justiciar from the Abadar article in #8 in the Curse of the Crimson Throne hardcover.

These deity articles were reworked in Inner Sea Gods, and the fact that none of these prestige classes were updated and included there, tells us, I think, that Paizo has moved on from them, and we're probably not going to see them again.

Why does the Grand Caller have only one opposition school?

Small nitpick: the three forest drakes are labeled as "frost drakes".


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

It might not even work, as character and cohort powers are often designed to work together, and if you swap them around, that my no longer work.

I don't know where you've been looking, all the NPCs I listed have pawns in my pawn set. They also all have full body art in their two-page NPC Gallery entries in the first two adventures.

Looking back at this set—as I will be starting a WotR campaign soon—I find it weird that there are no miniatures at all for the NPCs that are supposed to be recurring, possibly over the whole campaign, such as Anevia Tirabade, Aravashnial, Horgus Gwerm, Sosiel Vaenic, and Aron Tir. Strange. Somehow this seems to point in the direction that sets like this are designed more for collectors than for actually playing the campaign.

My perception is the game is bloated when I'm unable to keep up with the amount of options being published.

We have reached that point.

I don't mind more options, the problem comes when they're releasing 10 books a year between Player Companion plus Ultimate X, Y Adventures, Advanced [Insert noun] Guide, and so on. I envy the people who have the kind of cash to drop on all those every year, because even though they're open content GOOD LUCK finding them on the SRD or Archives (and most aren't posted to the PRD at all).

Thing is, you don't need to keep up.

Regarding the Cult of the Dawnflower: who knows, maybe they're not even getting their divine powers from Sarenrae at all. Maybe she has disowned them, and before they've noticed, some other, more sinister power, has stepped in.

a swashbuckler is a pirate.

My swashbuckler in our Hell's Rebels campaign would disagree. He has never even set foot on a ship.

Also, Robin Hood is not a pirate. Inigo Montoya is not a pirate. D'Artagnan and the three musketeers are not pirates. Zorro is not a pirate. The list goes on.


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

Jirelle isn't a pirate. She was selected as a kind of Robin Hood figure thought to be fitting the Nirmathas setting. The other three were chosen because they are the typical outdoors characters and this is something of an outdoors adventure path.

We just got done with the Graul farmstead today and I must say there were some feelings in our group that it was too over the top and possibly offensive. Is Graul more or less the peak of depravity for the AP, or should we expect even worse stuff ahead?

The Grauls are the peak of depravity in the whole Pathfinder Adventure Path line, so you should be safe now. Interestingly, the adventure was actually toned down from what Nicholas Logue originally delivered...
