Additional question: if I opt to pick up my stuff at GenCon, can I take an epic selfie with the Paizo staff?

I have, and trying to do so has often left me cold.

I like having a CRB that's a strong baseline that doesn't need additional products.

This is especially nice to have when introducing new players to the game. The barriers to entry are already incredibly high, no need to make that problem worse by asking them to learn *multiple* hardcovers' worth of character options.

I disagree that new players *have* to learn multiple hardcovers. I'm currently running a game for 4 people new to the game using only the CRB, Bestiary, and the Inner Sea World Guide.

You can make the game as simple or as complicated as you choose. Don't let the books choose for you.

This year will be my first True Dungeon experience. Can't wait!

I think the six adventures in an AP is great but I thought maybe if you ran two APs simultaneously it may help. What I mean is January AP 1 book 1 and February AP 2 book 1, March AP 1 book 2 and on, which I think may make the stories a bit more cohesive.

I suspect this would make the subscription model rather complicated.

Cool backstory, great art. looking forward to the brawler.

If this turns out to be a combination of Inner Sea codex and bestiary pawns, I'll be forced to kiss and bear hug everyone at Paizo.

The new art is quite stunning. In particular, the cover for "Hoard of the Dragon Queen" gives me an AD&D vibe. Looking forward to trying the new system out.

My group will be giving DDN a try. We hope to pick up the books at Gen Con this year. However, I don't know that we'd move away from Golarion. The big selling point for me in PF has been the fact that the backdrop material is...well...lovingly written, as opposed to the world setting material WotC put out for 4E, which felt too generic and dispassionate.

I started playing in the mid 90s with second edition. I still remember the day a friend dropped a crate full of books in front of me and said, "have you ever heard of this game called D&D?" Instanly hooked.

While I respect everyone's play style, it does make me sad to see that the game has become more a math exercise and less an adventure, and that many people seem to gauge a character's potential by its degree of optimization, rather than its backstory. I am fortunate to have a group were role-playing is more important than damage output.

My fun story: I once ran a campaign for two years in Planescape. The PCs were fighting the forces of Yeenoghu, and as such I would name him on occasion. About a year into the campaign, one of the players stops me and asks: "are you ever going to tell us this god's name?" Confused, I asked him what he meant; he replies, "well, you're always telling us how we're fighting you-know-who..." We still laugh about that 10 years later.

spawn calling.

SPAWN. CALLING.

cuz, y'know, spawn. Of Rovagug.

I agree with what Daniel said. While the ability lets them take an AoO against any melee attack, I don't see anything in the wording that says they can take more than their one AoO per round.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Does your DM know that you feel that way about his NPC's? If not, maybe he could use the feedback.

I know it's a longshot, and probably too niche, but...if you make a pathfinder battles expansion for this AP and the case incentive turns out to be the annihilator, I will name my firstborn Paizo.

It is specifically for summon monster, but I will see if I can't convince Jack to do a summon nature's ally set.

...Maybe an Inner Sea Bestiary set, too...

ZOMG yes please!!!!!!!

CJ, if you ever do paper minis for the Inner Sea Bestiary, you will be my hero forever and ever and ever.

And EVER!

I'm not sure how I feel about the weasel. Like danielc mentioned, it might be the angle of the shot, but it's coming off as a little too canine for me.

The raven, on the other hand.....perfect!!!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The dullahan looks great, as does Rasputin.

The Russian soldiers are a special treat, as I can paint one or two red highlights one them, mount them on 30mm bases, and use them in my Iron Kingdoms RPG game. All in all, 4 wins this week!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Good points, Cat. The shemhazian would definitely be awesome.

I'm not sold on linnorns, though...they're not different enough from dragons...


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Dear Lord, that dragon is beautiful!!

As for gargantuan candidates, I'd vote for the annihlator robot from the inner sea bestiary, or perhaps the quantium golem. Ooh, or a kraken.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Power Grid and Smallworld are pretty cool.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The ice troll couple is very awesome!

Best. Description. Ever. I can truly see this figure representing any raptor in the genus Falco. I can finally stop using my ettin mini to represent falcons in my game!

Alternatively, you can get them a Paizo gift certificate. Although like Drejk mentioned, they'll need an account to access downloads.

I still remember the first milk crate I saw full of 2nd ed D&D books. I would have never expected it to become a twenty-year hobby!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

It's 3 pp to make a single melee attack miss...I wouldn't called it overpowered.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I say PFO secretly went O ahead of schedule and borked the internet.

That, or androids.

I just want a system that uses dice with the word "win" on every face but one, and "reroll" on the last face (for balance).

These look fantastic. The death demon, in particular, looks awesome, and Korramzadeh....dat sexy beast. But where are the brimoraks?!?!?! I need the little guys!!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The clear winners for me are the gibrileth and the rift drake, both look fantastic!

These look amazing!!

I'm secretly, fervently hoping for a siege weapons (catapult, ballista, battering ram) set...


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I agree; I would understand people's displeasure AFTER giving the classes the proverbial spin. Calling them bad after just giving them one read is a bit premature.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I agree that it should work.

The armor states that the ability does not apply to natural attacks, but the feat states that the one chosen natural attack does receive benefits that apply to unarmed strikes.

Mathwei ap Niall wrote:
Yes, but it never says it stops being a natural attack at the same time. For spells and effects it's treated as an unarmed strike AND as a natural attack.

Actually, I read it differently. It doesn't say that the attack counts as both a natural attack AND an unarmed strike. It says that one specific natural attack can ALSO benefit from effects normally available only to unarmed strikes.

So for those that haven't heard yet the last 2 classes for advanced classes have been announced and I again have some worries about one in particular. Apparently we will be getting a new class called The Brawler which is meant to be a class that, "blends the fighter and the monk, creating a warrior whose sole focus is unarmed combat and martial maneuvers, without any of the mysticism of the monk. This class is designed specifically to beat up monsters, with a full base attack bonus progression (like a fighter) and improved unarmed strike damage (like a monk). To top it off, the class is also very skilled at making combat maneuvers."

Now despite how cool that sounds it does have me worried about the monk and its place in the whole scheme of things considering that if the brawler is done right we will now have yet another class that outstrips the monk in unarmed combat and are left with the monk sitting behind the fighter and brawler in terms of being able to do what it was designed to do.

Is anyone else worried about this or have any ideas as to what happens next? I'm not looking to start a flame war I'm just wanting to see if I'm alone in this of if this worries and or upsets people as well.

link to the full article here

This is what I have been waiting for. A martial artist without any mystical or magical abilities. :)
And I'm with you in that it sounds really cool but if this is meant to be the replacement for the monk and they have no plans to update or patch the monk up to make it more viable alongside the other classes then why not just say that? Why not just admit that they want to kind of leave it behind and that their are no real plans to update it and call the brawler their do over?

Because

A) not everyone thinks the monk is "not viable" and
B) more variety is not a bad thing.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

These are all fantastic. Aponavicius, in particular, is a remarkable sculpt and color scheme! She's definitely *several* steps up from the LoG serpent demon.
