I am finding use for the iconics as PC/NPC's. In the Skulls and Shackles set, would you rather have the two iconics (Half elves gunslinger and magus) or Master Scourge and Mr Plugg? I could just as easily use Scourge and Plugg minis as PC and NPC in non S&S campaigns as I could the iconics. For me I would rather have those two or maybe one of them and Owlbear (even though I painted a decent mini for him in Reaper Bones).
I like the minis icluding the iconics, but if I had the choice of more AP specific NPC's or the iconics, I would go with more NPC's.
I am glad they left it out similar to the decision to leave the White Dragon out of the RotRL set. The reefclaw could easily be added to other sets like this, but some of the NPCs would not make it into another set. This is especially so because it is only a few months between these two releases.
As far as the iconics, I will be glad when they finish releasing them so we can get more AP specific things in future sets but two per set has become expected at this point.
At the end they are talking about minis and the expense. You guys should look into the pawns for the AP and maybe the Bestiary 1 Box so you have the bases.
I enjoyed the play as it was educational since I am about to GM this in a couple weeks. The bard brings a lot of humor to the story and I enjoyed his songs
I think all the gargantuan minis have come in multiple pieces. The Black Dragon was huge if I remember correctly.

Thanks those look great. Not too many available in the singles market. I may have to check eBay. Thanks
I want a reefclaw and the bees that attack at Rickety Squibs.
I think the reefclaw is the only mini needed to complete the encounters for the Beginners box as everything else has been done. They could then do repaints for a beginners box monster set if they wanted to target beginners.

Gary,When you say "everyone will receive", does that include those at the explorer level or only the super explorer? Also is this a pdf or printed item? I'm already a backer, but wasn't sure about this stretch goal. Thanks
Not sure how Brothers Seven claim would disappear. They own other property as well if I remember correctly (i.e. the sawmill). That groups property rights would go somewhere and my guess is Magnimar may use this as an opportunity to sieze the groups properties to make some money for the city. The Mayor of Magnimar seemed like a greedy type to try to do this. Kind of like a drug dealers siezed property in todays world.

I ordered three copies of the Adventure Gear Deck (PZO5004-2) and only one of the decks shipped. It is acceptable to sidecart the missing 2 decks as opposed to shipping one package just for those couple items. If it is easier for you to just ship them that is fine too.
I will say the same thing happened to my RotRL AE. It was moved out til January, then Amazon got it in stock and it was delivered to me on August 14th. Not sure exactly when it was released, but it seemed like about 3 weeks. I read a post on these boards that said when Amazon doesn't get a product by the release date, the computers push the date out and it is not based on anything truthful. I also have the Beastiary box on order and I am content to wait a couple weeks for it.

Amazon always moves the date out to Jan of the next year. Then they come back in a couple weeks and fix it to send out the following week. Based on past paizo products on Amazon you should disregard the January date that Amazon told you and expect them in 3-4 weeks.
Edited to add the quote I found on page 3 of the Knot of Thorns discussion:

Not sure what you have planned for next couple blog posts until you can release the next set of pics for Shattered Star, but a new pic of the Kaven Windstrike mini without a broken sword might be blog worthy to fill the time.
I think there are quite a few in ROTL that could qualify for the repaint. You still get some generic monsters like harpys, goblins, ghouls, wraiths, kobolds, etc... in this set. Also some monsters from this set and Heros and Monsters could be repainted and combined in one pack (think Goblin super encounter pack).
I started collecting them a few months ago and here are my tips:
1.) Go back to a post on the store blog titled "Going, Going, Gone..." and look to see which ones are almost out of stock. You should probably move any on that list to the top of your priority list to get them before they go out of print. After that you could relax and buy at a more liesurely pace. Here is a link to the one from Feb:
2.) I thought about collecting all the available map packs, but after seeing the new version compared to the older version, I decided I only wanted to collect the new versions that can be easily marked up and erased so that list got really short. I bought a few of the older ones that interested me, but did not go for the whole collection.
3.) As far as a list is concerned I made my own handwritten list since there were not that many of them from the paizo product page based on which maps were still available and just started checking them. Before I knew it I had them all. Here is a Google Doc that shows most of the Flip maps and map packs along the top. Not sure if they are in order, but it may help:
Good luck on your collecting.
Any chance of getting at least an estimate of the page count? I did not see it on the kickstarter page, but maybe I just missed it somewhere. It is one of those things I like to know about projects. Thanks
I was thinking about it last night and when the Beastiary box comes out you could store the pawns in the same sleeve as the Monster Knowledge cards from 4 Winds. I don't have the Monster Knowledge cards, but if they print out on business cards they should fit nicely into the sheets. There should be enough room in the sleeves to store these too because the are not that taut. That way when you pull out the pawn you can grab the Monster Knowledge card at the same time. It just seems like a great pairing. Just food for thought.

Are the slots "taut"? If you have 3 pawns side by side, do they shuffle around and overlap each other when you turn a page?
It is very taut, but I imagine this might change if you buy a different brand. While I could have some overlap, it does take some work to make them overlap. I doubt it would overlap on its own. I can gently shake the sheets and the pawns don't slide around. If I really shake the sheets, the pawns can slide out so they are not that taut. Not really sure how to describe the tautness of the sheets better.
