Alright gang, make up an alter ego super villain for the modern world.
Who would you be, what is your villain's name?
What are your super powers?
What are your motivations and backstory?
What is your secret hidden base? Do you have minions?
Who is your (good guy) arch enemy ? (Try to use one everyone has heard about and why)
What if any are your weaknesses?
And, who plays your villain in the movie?
With the Reign of Winter AP beginning and many of the Paizo faithful eagerly awaiting how Mother Russia will be portrayed in the pages of the AP - an ancient threat may have callously revealed itself.
Seeing that the umbral veil between worlds has been penetrated and obfuscation and utmost secrecy are no longer the by words of the day, it appears the Aboleths have seen it fit to test fire* their weapon that will ultimately bring an Age of Darkness into our own world.
* (To give some perspective on this 'test fire' - the Meteorite that burned through the skies above Siberia late last week is estimated to be some 17.5 meters across, had an estimated mass of 8,000 to 10,000 Tons, and released the energy equivalent to nearly 500 Kilotons of TNT which is the rough equivalent of 25 of the atomic bombs detonated above Hiroshima that turned that ancient city into cinders.)
Thus, armed with this knowledge, I once again implore Vic Wertz to continue diverting funds into the Death Star project, our only hope against the threat of the Aboleths.
Help us Vic Wertz, you are our only hope.
Premiering at South by Southwest, Zero Charisma is a story about a passionate gamemaster struggle to regain his honor from a neo nerd hipster duchebag*
I guess 'Three Charisma' does not have the same ring to it, and Zero Dark Thirty was taken.
*Thanks for that line Trisha Hershberger
I have to figure out some tie ins and backstory for a new group so that has led me to this question -
As far as PFS scenarios go - who is the most memorable villains in the scenarios thus far. I am looking for unique individuals and not organizations.
Bonus points it they are alive at scenarios end and appear in more than two scenarios.
Pleas briefly state your reasons for picking the villain in question.
I have to take out a certain BBEG from is in 'Eyes of the Ten' out of the running. Grandmaster Torch, the ParaCountess, and certain four and five star GMs do not count either.
I am playing in a Shattered Star campaign currently and we're about to wrap up the second adventure, and I am trying visualize the Runelord of Lust.
I guess she's rather on the young side for the part of Sorshen but looking at her wield the twin kayak paddles Nina Agdal could be somewhat of a contender for that image.
Hey parts of Denmark are like Varisia right?
I was looking to complete my Pathfinder miniatures line and chanced upon this.
If this has been brought up before, hey they are still great figures of inspiration.
Hellknight Signifier I ordered this one.
And this reminds me of a certain fallen Aasimar from Burnt Offerings. She's on a gravestone to boot!
Before the Core Rulebook came out, through your kindness we got a group of then new friends to try the Pathfinder Beta rules, with the Mythic play test coming in a day, shall we once more unto the breach, dear friend?
Our friend who run and completed Age of Worms and Council of Thieves and I were chatting and I used several Intimidate, Bluff, Diplomacy, and Profession: Cattle Trader, rolls to get him to run a Mythic level play test.
He wants to run a much altered Savage Tide campaign set after the events of the failed/partial return of Kyuss from AoW.
Character level will be around 11, we start just outside Scuttlecove and in a few adventure will enter the Abyssal ocean. He will incorporate the Pirates miniature ship combat rules because he has some 200 ships he wants to place on the Sultan gaming table, counting you and I we have six other players including some regular PFS GMs (to be honest I think we have some 30 players who want in, but you sir, as they say, have 'dibs').
Your friends and numerous cliched gaming humor await, what say you?
Although I started with the Red Box, and I cut my teeth (and a few giants, slave lords and a certain Vampire in Castle Ravenloft) with 1st Ed, there was always a warm spot in my heart for 2nd Edition. I still love how they made specialty priests unique. And the plethora of game worlds were distinctly from that edition of the game - fun times!
The Planescape petitioners have been heard: The 2nd Ed Premium Reprints are slated for early summer next year! That's a grognard's dream for summer reading!
Even better news! The release is to include, premium editions of the Players Handbook, the Dungeonmaster's Guide, The Monstrous Compendium, and hardcover editions of Against the Slave Lords and S1-S4!
Here is the link for The Players Handbook on Amazon. They have all been listed.
As Johnny "Drama" Chase would put it: VICTORY!
So my partnerships are offering a rewards program to our most 'avid' constituents, clients who spend upwards of $50K or more with us a year, some of these people spend that in a WEEK!
We had a meeting today of what to call the cream of that group, and some of the names bandied about were filled with hubris like "One Percent" (alluding to the top percentile income/tax bracket, which I flat out shot down for obvious reasons, said hubris not the least of them), to others more in the realm of whimsy like "Hellfire Club" (yep one of my partners is a comic book fan) and "Skull and Bones" (taken).
I put forth some names like "Primogeniture" and jokingly "Killer Whales" (referring to Whales, which is Las Vegas slang for big spenders) but I was only half hearted in these and was working on finishing another project at the time. And yes someone said "The GOP" and "Fuk the Recession" already.
Would any here in the community have any ideas for a name of an exclusive private high rollers membership that is already a part of a larger high rollers club?
Our main competition in New York and Miami is Carbon and we murder them in all possible aspects of comparison.
If we select your suggestion, we'll make you an honorary member and send you a platinum membership card for use in New York, Miami, Las Vegas and London.
Ok my fellow Paizonians, I posted a link to some old school products available at the Paizo store to a site a frequent. One of the posters, taking a completely different direction and who was already very unruly prevoisly decided to say some rather disparaging and completely mistaken coments about Paizo. This is NOT, I repeat NOT an edition war!!!
I was going to leave this all well alone ... But no, this guy has done this before. And he says it with enough false authority that I want him to get a little whiff of the fire power of a fully armed and operational Paizo message board.
So here is the link under the spoiler tag.
I ask that those who post a response to PLEASE NOT start a flame war on that site, nor start one here. No talk of editions should be made. That site is very near and dear to my Grognard heart.
But put that whelp in his place, and defend the honor of the Purple Golem.
Dear Wes, a little bit ago, you and James Sutter had a short but memorably dark little adventure in Dungeon 128 called 'Shut In'.
Do you have any suggestions on where to place this mini adventure in the backdrop of Ustalav?
Bonus points if you have suggestions on how to incorporate this adventure in Carrion Crown or even as a pre Carrion Crown adventure where Prof. Petros Lorrimor actually takes part in it with the players.
As always, thanks for your help and coming up with such a fine adventure to begin with.
I don't play 4th Ed but Cryonax, Prince of Elemental Cold, possible son of Elder Thrazidun, is looking good since his days in 1st Ed's original Fiend Folio.
He's definitely been working out.
