I have to say that it pleases me to see other people chiming in that they'll also be doing some Halloween themed scenarios specifically in the month of October.
I happened to find an old thread regarding "horror" scenarios, and will add a few that they talked about back in 2012. Unfortunately, a LOT of them are now retired so will not be listed here.
It was also said that anything dealing with the Blakros would fit, but I don't know about that. Blakros Matrimony definitely doesn't seem to fit the bill.
Hopefully this is the proper section of the site to drop this thread.
For the month of October, at my suggestion, our local PFS Lodge wouldlike to do only spooky horror/thriller style adventures. We'll be doing both standard and Core, and during our convention on the 29th, we'll be specifically doing modules for both sides. I'm looking for ideas that we could use to run for all four weeks, plus the convention date.
So far our own GMs have suggested:
Mists we're unfortunately doing this week as it was requested, and none of the new players had done it, but we'll just run it Core later.
As many suggestions as possible would be welcome. We've got a few new players, and a few returning players, but the majority have been doing PFS for five years. There's little they haven't done standard, but they could likely still do it for Core.
So it says that one of the fallen warriors didn't animate and is clutching a jade kukri. In Tier 1-2 it does "normal damage". What exactly does that mean? That because it's 1-2 that it's just a masterwork kukri that's no different than any other kukri? That it hits and negates the regeneration? Or, is the "one unique ability" simply to negate the DR 5/bludgeoning of the tier 4-5?
I'll be running the adventure for the very first time this week, and I just want to make sure I understand it perfectly.
No killing spree:
Also, how do I keep my players from murdering the people in the museum? Or should I just let them do what they want and have the consequences come out later during the chronicle write-ups? It's not like Adril emphasized that they shouldn't be murder hobos.

I'm glad it didn't make you do a double take. When I asked that question before I only got hard stares like I was from space. But it being capable of becoming undead is great information. Thanks muchly.

It's not something specific to their game world. They could do it, but their own characters can't make use of the rules. Much like you can make any race you want to, or half-race, but you'll never ever see them exist in Golarion because those were the rules they set for themselves. It's why there's sometimes disclaimers/sidebars on their books that give you "suggested options" for outside their main books.
I do hope we get picture-guessing monster vs monster competition again from Liz a month before the release, I really enjoyed that.
I second this. That was both interesting and fun. Then reading the little ecology trivia notes that we got up until that point, and finally the big reveal with the monster's ecology. That was nice.
I'm afraid I'll have to necro this thread as I plan to run this game soonish.
Since I'll be doing this for PFS, and I've loved the intros I've found so far for modules (Emerald Spire, Feast of Ravenmoor, Master of the Fallen Fortress, etc), I was wondering if anyone had written up a complete read-aloud PFS Venture-Captain intro.
Huzzah! Congratz Kevin ^w^
Thanks. I also did a collaboration with two other authors to do up my slaver class (renamed the ruthless oppressor to be more PC) that I designed years ago for the Way of the Wicked AP. Part of me finds it humorous that Gary's inadvertently responsible for both.
Don't know if anyone's interested at all or not, but back when I first ran this, one of my players didn't want to be any of the then available classes or archetypes. She wanted to take the slaver trait, and play an actual slaver. Well, back then there was only a 3.5 PrC and Solace Games came out with an NPC class version of the slaver. I ended up taking both concepts, and making a hybrid archetype for the rogue class. This week saw my completely updated and more PC appropriate named archetype, the ruthless overseer, for the Knotty Works archetype supplement line.
Also, after what feels like forever, we finally played a game of WotW tonight. Unfortunately, we weren't able to get everyone to make it so we were down a considerable amount. Still had enough with NPCs to go in, take down a couple of guards, and even the rookery. Next time they're hoping to light things up, and take on the wizard. I'm curious to see how things play out.
So, wanted to bring up that thanks to this project falling to the wayside, and the monsters I ended up converting, one of my publishers ended up taking most of them, as well as a few other monsters I'd converted on the side, and created a mini-Bestiary. A few of you who have been here since the beginning with notice a few of the monsters that I shared on this thread and my blog.
Just want to say thanks to Gary for making it all possible. And to all you guys for letting me share my original monster conversion attempts.
Necromancers of the Northwest came out with a few magic items of peace. Figured they'd fit best in this particular book of Way of the Wicked. The one that I feel would be best is the shield of the dove after you put a couple of enhancements on it. Namely, a vial of magic vestment +5 oil, for the end encounter. That oil will last for hours.
1) Yes, NPCs only have half hp compared to PCs who have full at 1st level.
2) Ignore HL. NPCs don't normally get traits. NPC PCs get at least one.
3) Padded and leather armor has no penalties to give, hence why you don't see anything. This is why a wizard can wear a mithral shirt without check penalties, but still have arcane spell failure.
@Alice--Sorry to hear about your computer. I skipped the whole update thing because I knew my computer couldn't handle it. Seems that only the newest computers with it already installed seem to actually work properly with Win10. So weird.
A while back, I brought up that I had found a 2e module that involved a dwarf mine.
On my blog, I have converted most of the encounters, and suggested conversions for those that I didn't do. At the very least, most of the work is done for you.
The CR is low enough that it should be possible to do it as soon as Book 2 ends. For those players and GMs who wanted to end the game now, and not continue for another four books, this works as an optional ending to the campaign.
I'm in the same boat as Lord_Hyperion. I was more than willing to give Gary the full five years you're allowed to complete a Kickstarter, but the lack communication, the inability to take five seconds to go "still working on ToN, thanks for the patience, 'kay love you bye-bye", and continually backing other projects when he signed on, was just too much. It didn't help matters that his other project, the deck of cards, ignored those who'd paid and never received their decks. I got mine, but lots of others didn't, and this was evident in the comments. I had to explain to them what was going on and the current situation with ToN. It just got to be too much over time. Out of everyone, I think I'm the person who feels the most betrayed.
Alice, that sounds great so far. There were a few I never would have even considered coming up with. That's very cool indeed. Look forward to seeing the entirety of the PDF.

I'm the exact same way. It takes a lot to get under my skin when it comes to this kind of stuff, and even more so if I have any kind of respect for you. Anyone here or at the KS can attest that I've been more than patient or optimistic regarding this project, and some have even let me know that they're shocked and saddened that I'm the one who's pushing people to now push the Kickstarter staff to do something about him and his lack of communication. In all honesty, this was completely avoidable. All he had to do was put aside his pride, and let people help him when things got tough.
Whatever happens, at least we know we did our part and didn't sit idly by.
At this point, I'd be more concerned about Gary seeing your work and stealing bits from it to plug into his material.
I've said myself, and David has agreed, anything we've put up online is fair game. If Gary ended up using it, we wouldn't even care. At this point we'd just be happy that the project was being completed.
You can download the updated file anyway, regardless of whether you've gotten the email.
Oh, I have the file. I've had it since it first came out and printed off a bunch of new iconics for last night's weekly PFS. I just got the email now, but I was hoping it was going to list all the specific differences compared to other files. I knew about the APG, UI, and UM iconics. I'm guessing since I'm not seeing "We updated X" that we're not getting a different warpriest (or rather the same warpriest we got for Risen of the Sands with his ability to bypass hardness) or anything along those lines for the other characters. Just didn't want to show up to game with "old" versions of the iconics when there were newly updated Core or ACG versions. Since there doesn't look to be, then I'm good.
I just want this to have a seconday success condition so players can get 2 PP :) Suggestions include "Don't knock down the building" and "Save the Pathfinder."
I'd like that too. Even if it's something as specific as "only on Free Games Day" like others have had, that's fine. Limiting, but it gives you another option.I know that people who've ran this multiple times can do the whole thing in about 30-60 minutes, but when we first did it, it was six hours. Everyone felt rather depressed/defeated that two characters had died and all they got was 1 PP because it's a "short" module.

I'm afraid Mike doesn't reply to any of his emails either. Not since earlier this year. At least he hasn't to me or a couple of others, and we used other ones we found. You can give it a shot.Another guy did his own Book 3-6 as well. I posted his summaries on this forum a while back.
As for physical copies of the book, they'd be done through DriveThru. For ease anyway. Each customer would just a voucher and would have to pay shipping.
What level(s) are you looking for?

They should be suspending his kickstarter privileges until he comes out of hiding at the very least.
I actually asked this very thing to happen when I first sent the ticket last month. Never heard back on whether or not that was possible, but then I got a different person on the third go.
This is the letter that I got. Didn't get anything else as of yet, but it's only Tuesday. I've since contacted them to let them know that there could be 314 people using the same ticket because we're that serious right now.
If that's the case then a large portion of us are screwed because we're not American. We can't contact an Attorney General or take him to court.
Thanks for letting us know, and good luck with your dealings.

Also posted a support ticket. Thanks Derek for starting to mobilise. It would be good if other backers could let us know if they have posted a ticket just so we know where we stand.
I was going to wait a little longer (until October 29th, the anniversary of his last post), but after seeing someone sign in with his log-in for four days straight and backing more projects with no update, I'd had it.
On my last ticket, which I had you guys reference, I made sure to put down that the other two tickets that I still had in my email folder. I've talked with at least three different KS staff members about this. As The Sword said, if you've done it as well, be sure to reference any and all tickets you've already put in.
Re: Are there plans to make Stats for the Iconics for Magus, Cavalier, Oracle, Inquisitor, Summoner, Witch, and Alchemist?
What? No love for the barbarian? #unchainAmiri
^This. As much as you'll probably want to, especially given their responses, don't give in to anger. They didn't drive us to this point. They're just looking for better solutions so that what happens to those who don't see the rewards, get them. They just want everyone happy.
It is with a heart filled with mixed emotions that I inform you guys that not only has Gary finally signed on after a half month, but he's back two new non-Pathfinder projects and still has not given us an update.
I'm just... Yeah. No words. If they were Pathfinder purchases, I wouldn't be so down. I'm done. I still don't want to write this off though. We deserve something for our time and money.
I will say. I want everyone, and I do mean every single backer, to go to the Kickstarter and go to the Support link. Click on Feedback, say it doesn't answer your question, then go to the "Still need to get in touch? Contact us here" link that appears underneath. For the subject, put in "Regarding #623751 Still no communication whatsoever". In the Details explain how upset you are about what's going on, both on the front that they're not doing anything and that McBride isn't updating but instead just backing project. For those of you who are now boycotting KS, be sure to put that in there.
Maybe if 314 people get angry about the same subject, maybe something will actually happen.
This is fair. It was more an advertisement to the mods so they don't delete my post for it not being 100% relevant to the thread. I didn't figure it'd happen, but you can never be too careful.
yesterday's playtest for my one-shot was a success. I've got a decent amount of revising to day so it'll be about a month before the publisher sees it, and my tournament module got picked up and sent to the editor's.
