My players have started to try to redeem someone, but not anyone from this storyline...I threw something together since there is no module for Nov. and I put in a female drow swashbuckler/duelist kinda fighter as an opponent.
I used the cover from Dungeon # 119 as a prop...I have never seen such cooperation in redeeming a Neutral Evil enemy lieutenant before...as it was going on winter and the female dwarf were bear that they had hired to guard their cartographer was "hibernating" [read as player went on graveyards and no one would run his character]...guess who now has a job keeping the party mapper alive?
Even the Paladin tried to hit on her...Only the jester [their thief decided that all the crusading paladins made her nervous so she reinvented herself as "Djinngles The Jester"] has made no attempt to score with the drow lady.
To date , I have no idea why they decided that their cartographer, an elven fighter mage [who trained as a Raumathari Battle Mage and has been kicking demonic behinds lately] needs a bodyguard at all.

Yes, my righteous murder hobos have bribed me with much to ensure their virility is sated by the deaths of at least TWO demon lords...
Such bribes included two dozen chocolate chunk cookies so stuffed with chocolate that they must have used crowbars to get the chocolate truffle filling inside, a steak dinner at the Texas Roadhouse, and a hardbound copy of the Fifth Edition Shadowrun rulebook...
Yup...those two demon lords are going DOWN!
My players got such a craving for their characters to enjoy a good cup of coffee that they ended up attacking the 9th plane of Hell.
Please note, they went there on there own and large wicker baskets were not involved...
To this day I have no idea why they suddenly believed that the big daddy of the devils...Big D...had coffee to die for...which 5 out of 7 heroes did indeed die.
I sent the survivors to that middle eastern setting...Zakhara I think?
Probably still there.
Off Topic..if there is a Hello Kitty...why is there not a Goodbye Puppy?
I tried to google the topic but the number one site was pet funeral sites...then my PC announced that IE needed to shut down...and it did...
Coincidence...or Hello Sabotage?

I, too used him as an illusionist...it did take my players several years to figure out his class...then it was "DOH!!!"
I am extremely impressed by how UPS handled my shipment!
16th...451 pm processed at Paizo
...951 pm arrival...Redmond
...1043 pm departure
17th...152 am arrival...Moses Lake
...753 am...out for delivery
...500 pm...at my front door!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It took USPS 5 days to more than a week to ship across WA state.
UPS did it in just over 24 hours...GO TEAM UPS!!!
How is he going to aim his spells?
I had a blinded mage try to use his familiar [black tom cat] to either let him see through his eyes...or meow loudly when his finger was on target...
By unanimous group votes...the meowing won!
My gamers like to think of their high level heroes as "God Slayers"...To their credit they have wacked a serious number of demon/devil/daemon lords,and helped to machine the death of Shar in my Forgotten Realms game [that took from 1995 to just past 2010, with their heroes really acting as mooks to the hero quasi-godlings they were serving]...
So when the heard of Razmir they thought instantly he was running a scam, so they wanted to take him out to reclaim their title...
To their disgust...they did kill him...but his church refuses to admit anything and claim "Razmir has ascended beyond our mundane reality...yada yada yada."
I did have the goddess of illusions came back from her "death", and reading this forum I'll have her start granting his clergy true spells as "PROOF" he is still in existance...she gets the prayers in his name.
Thanks for the help with my game guys!
I am approaching 50 this year...my players are in their 40's with a 20 something son of one of the players to round out our group...none of them have ever raised an eyebrow about any of the LGBT npc's brought up in this thread/modules past or present...
It just does not seem to be an issue to them/me...I was brought up believing that all were created equal...even in rpgs...especially in rpgs as they are a means of escape from our boring real day lives!
I work retail...yup selling socks and underwear funds my gaming addiction...and yup...its boring as all get out...gaming has been an escape for me since 1978 when I saw my first DM running a game at Penneys in the local mall.
In that time I have had more than a few LGBT gamers at my table...none of my players cared much beyond how well they roleplayed/gamed and contributed to the pizza fund/soda runs. They were all decent gamers...and they were treated as such by both myself and the other players.
The first coherant words out of my players when they saw the first chapter of the current adventure had nothing to do with the female orc paladin on the cover or her wife...it was "DID YOU SAY THERE ARE THREE DEMON LORDS TO TAKE OUT IN THIS ADVENTURE??????"...followed by excited words that I am not going to post.
In the real world or in a fantasy world, its still important to remember we are all equal, we all have a right to be there, and the dice will always treat us the same.
Sorry for the long post...
My players used to cast continual light[flame] on copper coins...on LOTS of copper coins.
This was done by their mages/clerics in their down time...picture 3 heroes each tossing a fistfull of those coins down a shaft, or every which way in a dark cavern...
I just palmsmacked and let it go...it WAS a clever idea and it wasn't worth the bother to keep track of all those light coins...
I did have goblins start to steal them when they could though!
One of my players has a character named...DarkMoon...he still thinks an ancestor was cheated out of the vale!
Darkmoon Vale...The Dragon's Demand...both good for more than just a level or two...nice long term fun in both!
I understand that Justin Riddler may have been missinformed when he said my order shipped on the 13/14, but how did my FLGS get the same issue I subscribe to on last Friday when the last of the preprinted labels was picked up on Monday?
Kinda sounds like their shipment got out the door much earlier than those with preprinted labels did...this is the second time in a row its happened...
I have been with you since Dungeon magazine got its licensing pulled by those spooky wizards from the coast.
Has there been a decision to ship to gaming stores first?
I am trying to be calm and collected...but I was billed on the 13th, and now I might have to wait til Sept 5/6-maybe longer?
For something you gave to my FLGS on the 23rd of this month.
Still no tracking data...either it was given to USPS on the 13th or so like one person said...or it was billed as shipped on the 13th and only actually really really given to USPS only Crom knows when. Sarah said they print rolls of shipping labels and bill at that time BUT really ship when it gets out the door...HMMMMMMM.
Have I been unfairly blaming the USPS for emulating snails?
The actual shipping date on my packages postage stamp is never the date I have been told it shipped, it is the date USPS actually got it.
Please do not keep mentioning GENCON...each and every month lately has had yet another delay pop up as if by magic.
Early this year they said they had hired some person to make them ship better/faster...
I will give UPS a shot at faster delivery...but my patience is running out...
It really sucks to see my subscription get here close to a week after my FLGS gets their shipment...like someone up this thread said...subscribers seem to be last class customers now.
Yup mythic does high level better than TSR/WOTC ever did...they did indeed just add more numbers...1 pit fiend??? NO! 25 pit fiends cuz yer so l33t now...my players really prefer mythic to my old TSR high level stuff...GO PAIZO!!!
I used to have players who cheated pretty hardcore, but other players policed the group due to fears of me upping the dangers due to...
"Gosh that was a cakewalk for you people...I'll have to throw in some beholders or something to really challenge you next time"
I did have beholders next time and the players started with..
"That was a 15 dude you missed...there was only 3 healing potions in that chest and you only got ONE, not all of them"
I haven't had cheaters for quite a while now...decent players are a gift from Crom!
I am more annoyed at the USPS...I'm in Wash. state...same as Paizo...it takes longer to ship my stuff across the state than it seems to take to ship to the east coast.
I'll give Big Brown a chance to get my stuff here faster...By Crom they can't be slower than snail mail!

I gave the party an endless bag of frogs. At first, everyone rolled there eyes as they pulled a male bullfrog out every turn, but now they actually fight over the item. It has been a fun roleplaying tool.
Laying blame on my very bad handwriting...I accidentaly came up with the decanter of endless rodents!
Yup, your choice of anything from gerbils to detroit sewer rats and in rapid fire amounts...like a rat machinegun!
My heroes stole it from a temple of Yuan-ti and are still to this day fighting off attempts by snake men to reclaim it.
I just ran with my players interpretation of my hand writing and spun up a three session game based on it.
Random question...are subscription orders processed alphabetically or are they kinda random shuffled so as to be...random as to when they ship?
With a last name beginning in W, I was always at the end of the lists in school and the Air Force...I could take naps before it was my turn for processing/shots in basic training.
I am trying a switch from USPS to UPS Ground to see if my order gets here next month faster...they can't be slower than 6 days and counting in the same state...WA. It only adds a few bucks to shipping.
The warehouse crew seems to get my stuff out on time but the USPS seems to think standard mail means snails and turtles time...no way will I go to USPS Priority to get it faster.
That would just be rewarding USPS for being all passive agressive.
"tracking unavailable at this time..."
hmmmmm...UPS is looking so much better than USPS at this time...
If it was processed by usps on the following day...the 15th...leaving off sat18/sun19...5 days and usps is still not talking...
Yup! I've pert near had enough from the USPS.
I am changing my delivery choice for the next chapter...UPS Ground will have a turn at my money...
This must drive you guys more crazy than me...does every USPS shipped issue have this much drama?
On the off chance, does anyone know what ups ground's delivery time is?
As the player who was granted the Black Riders Mantle is now a chipmunk...Baleful Polymorph from Elvanna...do I have a Mythic Chipmunk at tier one?
The other players are quite miffed with him for defending Dear Grandmother by climbing up the mages breeches and biting him repeatedly in the...groin.
I'd like to have him survive some player payback without just DM handwave.
Yup! even way back in 1.0/2.0 edition the books had archdevils/demonlords equal to a demi-god (while on their own plane...no idea where that bit of data is from...my recall blew its dice roll for my legend lore), I boosted him to a lesser god as he was THE boss devil of them all (and just to thwart my players lusting after his ruby scepter of sheer awesomeness...in 1st edition anyhoo).
I have no doubt that he has moved up the foodchain since then.
My players may think of themselves as true death monsters...BUT! The big A is someone they have absolutely no intention of taking on...maybe they are learning restraint and self-preservation?
I, too would like to see what could challenge end game pcs with that kind of power...My players long term characters are probably ner to that kind of power now!
I am so out of threats to challenge them anymore...at least they like their lower level heroes so much they say they'll wait for the last few chapters of this adventure to consider dusting them off.
