I like that, it feels like everyone at Paizo loves their world, their stories, and their background material. You can tell they're writing the stories they want to tell, not just random generic descriptions for the sake of providing a "default" world.

I tried the line 3 times, being forced to quit the first two because of events I wanted to participate in. I was finally able to get in on Saturday.

I have to say, I know why Paizo had to handle the line that way. I also know (from talking to multiple vendors) that ICC was being particularly persnicketty this year with how they wanted people to handle their booths (and from a few rumors I heard on Sunday, it might be even more annoying next year); so kudos to you guys for handling it the way you did.

As for the whole experience...yes, the line may have been annoying, but:
1.I met new people while waiting in line, with whom I had very entertaining conversations about gaming.
2. I got a chance to just people watch, as the gen con hordes came and went. It actually gave me an excuse to watch the cosplays!
3. When I finally made it in, I got to talk to Lisa and Chris and Stephen and Erik and James and an especially awesome Paizo employee who swapped my goblin for a red horned demon (who shall rename nameless in case this might get 'em in trouble lolz) and it was just FREKIN' AWESOME AND PERFECT.

So a big applause to you guys. Paizo has, for 2 years now, been the highlight of my Gen Con experience.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I had a similar idea since we drove to/from gencon but "SubcompactCon" just can't handle large crowds.

Out of curiosity will we be seeing anymore of the Builder Series? Or has that product line been put into a holding pattern. I literally just realized how long it had been since I had seen any movement on that front.

It's probably charitable at this point to call it a holding pattern. Basically, neither of the sets we did generated sales high enough for WizKids to want to do more.

This is sad news indeed. I have both sets and like them a lot. In fact, next game night the PC's will be going into some ancient ruins inhabited by the entire 'We Be Goblins' set (with the exception of the goblin snake shaman).

Would a different format resuscitate the line? Perhaps fixed packs, like the Beginner Box Heroes? I'm sure this has all been discussed at length, but one can hope!

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

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.

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.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

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.

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, 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.

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, 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, 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, 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, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Power Grid and Smallworld are pretty cool.

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!

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