This blog post has wet my appetite for Emerald Spire (I had previously planned on ignoring this adventure).

The village of Hommlet (T1) is my all time favorite adventure. I learned my craft as a DM/GM running it over and over. Ended up having to create my own Temple of Elemental Evil as it took many years for T1-4 to come out, which was also a good learning experience (and I prefer my take on it, naturally).
Hommlet is the ultimate sandbox to play in. So many fond memories and tools it added to my Gamemastering.

Akiton! Following in John Carter's shoes (or rather some human from Golarian)...

The Temple of Empyreal Enlightenment:
Dakang has another sermon of heresy to give! Best NPC in PFS play!

With Mythic Adventures published, will there be an update to the stats for the creatures in Mythical Monsters Revisited? Either as a PDF update or part of other product? Granted, 'Mythical' does not necessitate the need for 'Mythic' rules; however the connection is logical.

Sean,
You've been in Con mode for too long. PaizoCon 2013 ended a few weeks ago. You best hop on a plane to Indie and help the Paizo crew clean up from GenCon 2013.

There need to be more Johns.

I strongly agree! Too bad my 15 month old son (who has my name) can't yet join us in our efforts to pack the Top 32 with John's.

I truly appreciate everyone who saw the spark of something interesting here, and I wanted to ensure that I did not let you down in later rounds while also ensuring I turned in work which would better fit Golarion's sensibilities.

I did see the spark in you. And while the last round was the only one I didn't vote for you, I feel a special happiness in your victory. I look forward with a scence of ownership (for lack of a better word) to buying your first RPG product. The nature of this compition is truly special.

Best of luck to you, Mike!

I am extremely happy about the choice of guests!

May I suggest the authors engage in a pre-CON signing activity of all the hard bound RotRL's expected to be sold at Piazocon and also given to Tier-1 GMs? This would be faster, prevent a long lined signing event, and encourage people to buy it at PiazoCON.
Any left over signed books could then be sold for a premium on the web site.

As a Tier-1 GM, I will not have the time to stand in line for such a signing.

My hat is off to you Mike. I know you will make some classics.

Kevin, at PaizoCon I will address you as "My Gamemaster". I haven't laughed this hard in a long time (woke up my babies!). Each viewing is better as I reread the judges comments. I will use your tomb stone in one of my games (even if it is a crapy name :D ).

@Gorbacz and Anguish: I understand your opinion on this matter; it is the same as my initial one when I heard about this fund. In fact the idea of a statue seemed silly.
Upon reflection, I realized that:


  • Paizo would not exist (at least not as it does today, I am aware of Arneson's contribution) without Gygax,
  • as a society we erect statues to people famous for killing people (both justly and unjustly) so why not one for a man famous for encouraging creativity,
  • I am certain that the money I spend on this hobby each year would be better used feeding a child somewhere yet somehow I keep buying more Pathfinder stuff,
  • and there is value in our grandchildren taking their grandchildren to the birth place of DnD/Pathfinder and seeing a statue of Gygax.

Paizo is the present and future of DnD. Their logo should be associated with this project (IMHO). I just hope they remember to put secret compartment or lever in it (check for traps!!). Not my place to tell them how to spend their money; this was just a nudge hoping they would consider.

There was a time when Wizards would have done this kind of a contest. Here's hoping they find their way back to being that kind of company again as they were when Ryan and Peter and Lisa and company worked there.

Agreed, I was too flippant. It just saddens me how badly Hasbro has mismanaged the D&D brand.

I do feel that Paizo has done an impressive job of understanding this market and delivering consistent quality product.

Hey now, your a SuperStar
with apologies to Smash Mouth

Somebody once told me Superstar is gonna roll me
I ain't the sharpest +1 sword in the shed
My item was looking kind of dumb with a monster in a can and flavor text
In the shape of an "L" on my forehead

Well the rounds start coming and they don't stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn't make sense not to write to please Sean
Your Wondrous Item gets tight but your head goes numb

So much to write so much to rewrite
So what's wrong with making a SIAC
You'll never know if you don't submit
You'll never shine if you don't rhyme

Hey now you're a SuperStar, get your game on - go write
Hey now you're a RPG Rock Star, get the show on - get paid
And all that glitters is Golarion
Only unique design chops break the the top 32

My entry is 300 words exactly according to MS Word 2003. Does anyone now how that number that will compare to the content submittal tool? Should I cut it down just in case?
