Haha I love the 2nd and 3rd pic, with kiddies hidden/imprisoned/playing under the table in the background!

To me the rules complexity starts at around the level of the PF Beginner Box, which is ideal. I like the more complex PF but at the table, and with my players, this is better. Pick up the free basic rules PDF (which has everything you need for the core 4 classes and races) if you want to see how it works. It plays really well at the table.

"Every time a "D&D" RPG comes at a certain point, it answers with introducing Tech, and that's usually close to the end of it. Dark Sun/Spelljammer AD&D, Eberron D&D ..."

Not quite, for example Original D&D Vol 2 Monsters & Treasure mentions Robots and Androids. Sci Fi has been in from the beginning as, when D&D started, there was no Sci Fi - Fantasy split, it was all just fantasy.

However I am not a big fan of overt Sci Fi in my fantasy, but my kids who I game with love it. They also don't have an internal Sci Fi/Fantasy divide in their heads yet, just pure imagination.

I think you have missed what expert rules are, it applies to the character level not amount of crunchy rules. From the Basic (PC levels 1~3) and, Expert (level 4~14) Sets of 'classic' or 'basic' D&D (aka B/X or BECMI.

So people are asking for another box/book that is the same as the beginner box but going from level 6 to higher. Same awesome production values, same clever layout and same neat art set up. Same paired down rules too!

Not that it would happen unless a 3PP does it, which is possible under the OGL. But it would need a kickstarter or something to make it cool enough IMO.

Yeah so very tempted by an extra ST at that price, bargain! Really international shipping makes it not a sensible choie though

My answer was reference to what we would like to see in the mini-PDF range... hopefully with a later hardcopy The Frog God Ecologies collection! My dragon Ecologies collection is a favourite :)

Yeah I hope the move to big modules means big maps. I like a lot of area to play in.

Will this be part of the adventure card subscription? or will the subscription end when Rise of the Ruelords does? I am subscribed currently for the cards, but wouldn't want to pay the, no doubt,huge shipping on this over to me in New Zealand.

Yeah me too, it'll have to be stop sub, buy on Amazon, re-up sub after. Hopefully we can start with the add-on set.

I am really really wary of 3rd party crunch -modules, settings etc I have loads, but after the d20 "glut-o-crap" (TM) I have not brought any 3rd party crunch, which is sad 'cos I have tones of pre 3E stuff that is great too.

So reading EZG's reviews I am going to bite the bullet and pick up the print./PDF bundle some time next year. It's all on your heads Kobolds!

I really wish I could tell if Amazon's was 6th printing... they are offering free shipping to NZ at the moment (slightly better than the $50 shipping option from Paizo!)

So if anyone knows if it is 6th or anyway to find out, I would be grateful. :D

Cheeky question, but free shipping to NZ WOW!

Yeah on normal books I am not that bothered by a bit of dining, cos they are for use. My box was literally the same size as the books, with only a token bit of bubble wrap. The Paizo corners mentioned above or a total wrap in bubble wrap (so it goes all around) would be better and possibly worth paying a bit more for. It just depends on how much more it would be!

Obviously FGG should take a hit for us weird foreign types ;)

Bother, I ordered the Base set from Amazon (international shipping)but was hoping to add the add-on here. So I guess I add the add-on as an addition to my Amazon order and subscribe starting with the SSMAD!

Say that 10 times fast ;-)

Is there any chance of adding any no toys pledge levels/ I just cannot see myself paying money for the toy ships.

Like possibly a 425-450$ level the same as the 500$ level minus the 3 ships and mini.

425$ Buccaneer no toys: Both Pathfinder and Swords & Wizardry Signed & Numbered Hardcover Copies of Razor Coast w/ PDF, 2 Player's Guide w/ PDF, 2 pads of Character Sheets, both PF & SW EXCLUSIVE bonus modules by Casey Christofferson.

225$ Swashbuckler SW of Pathfinder no Mini: Swords & Wizardry or Pathfinder Signed & Numbered Hardcover Copies of Razor Coast w/ PDF, print Player's Guide w/ PDF, EXCLUSIVE bonus module by Casey Christofferson.

I am 100% on for this sort of pledge still, especially when you consider the shipping and labelling

If it truly is just the books than we can mark it as so. The minute we add the mini or ships, etc we have to label it correctly. We cannot lie to customs as it is a very serious offense. However we will make sure the pledges with only books are labeled that way.

I don't think it is fair that people like Dragnmoon, who obviously own a store (we've seen the pics), get the purple edges... ;-)

and Larry, I certainly have the dice, will a leather copy of Rappan Athuk or maybe the deluxe RotRL be good enough for a phylactery, when they arrive? :D

Hey LOOK I am a Superscriber :D

It doesn't include the pawns (or the RPG too I guess), and I have enough plastic minis so they are not worth it to me. And I fancied trying the PF Tales, the one I have read was excellent, so just added that to my subs.

Or I have joined Larry's cult, best not to tell my wife ;-)

There is a problem with going too far in the just add you X ability to Y rolls instead of Z ability, everything becomes bland. For me 4E went to far like that (I played it for a year and a half and I still enjoy it). If you can use pretty much any ability for AC and HP and Attacks etc, why bother having different ones? It almost becomes in combat use 20+, skills the only thing that it made a dif (and that was changed a lot too)

Having spent a few years in IT I will give you the 3 possible answers and you can guess which one it is:
1. Paizo are an evil corporation and are intentionally putting active malware apps on their PDFs.
2. Some one with a lot of time and IT knowledge has hacked Paizo's distribution servers and somehow managed to get some malware into the PDFs therein.
or could it be
3: Your anti-malware app misdiagnosed a perfectly fine PDF from a very reputable company and deleted something it shouldn't have. Just be glad it didn't remove a system file that permanently crashed your PC!

I love the idea of adding Mythic to solos so they have more actions, an idea that 4E (MM3 and later) did well. The BBEG should be so awesome and step outside the action economy

Wow I splashed for this, just amazing. Now how long is it until I can replace my (scrawled in with errata) Core Book with a 10th Anniversary Leather one?

More mundane and magical vehicles. Ship/boat types from history and myth etc
Do Castles Keeps etc count as equipment? More info on them... and maybe even simple rules for running your castle/demesne :-)

Well I know it is early and only just released but I thought I would get the ball rolling on this. My first sweep through this is a really good book, but I have found a few errors and have a few questions now that I am reading it in depth -I have no Core Book :-(

So not expecting Gareth-M. to come on and answer for a week or more, but I'll get them down while I am thinking about them. So I'll add posts as I get them..

Artificer:
1. (errata) Both BAB and Fort save show ZERO at first level not 1 or 2, respectively.
2. (errata) No Armour or Weapon proficiencies are listed.
3. (question) Weird science: in the description it says "Spell statistics (casting times, etc.) remain unchanged" however in the 2nd example it says the weird science creates "a weapon which did 5d6 points of electrical damage, 1d8+5 points of additional damage, and bestowed a +4 to the AC of the shooter while in use". This doesn't make sense to me. If the spell statistics stayed the same you would have 'a weapon which does 5d6 electricity damage at 120' range, 1d8+5 points of damage if you use touch attack and bestows +4 shield bonus to AC for 1 min/level'
5. (question) Why 5 skill points per level? Just because it feels right (like full BAB and 1d6 hit die?)

Knight:
1. (question): Mounted Combat: Bonus to "defence rolls" What are defence rolls?

Warlock:
1. (errata) On the table it list Arcane Armour Mastery (Medium) rather than (Light)
2. (question) Why are the number of cantrips based on INT rather than CHA, bit MAD isn't it?
3. (question) Maybe this will be answered when I get the Core Book, but I guess that the School Abilities don't suffer from spell fail, so no real reason for a low INT Warlock to go for armour prof feats...?
4. (Errata) Arcane Bolt has no range, maybe irrelevant if you have the Core Book in hand?
