10. the original forgotten realms box set..it set my imagination on fire and made me want to create and publish my own world..

maybe a little shallow..but the deep stuffs not alway the fun stuff


Hi james was wondering in the long term..does paizo plan to release less rule books and more campaign related material....not trying to start the bloat war argument..i would rather see more campaign books...have a great weekend


I go with the idea that dwarfs have goats on the rocky surface of there mountain homes.


A reboot i am happy about if Rifts..always loved the world of rifts but the system just was not for me...now Rifts is getting ported to savage worlds..oh happy day...oh happy day


Hi james i hope you had a great day...i was wondering where can you buy the software you used to do the maps on your blog..your world map looks great..and speaking of your blog...update please


I think after occult adventures the hard cover line is going to switch to more campaign related stuff..thats good news no more rules bloat


Thors one of my favorite heros..i dont mind the women thor for awhile but i wish they would stop beating up on thor so much...truth is marvels big boys have been going through the wringer lately
1. caps depowered and now a old man
2. iron mans a full on villian
3. thor no hammer and no honor acting like a five year old
4. hulk is now doc green..a intelligent smart ass
looking forward to how hickman will wrap up his long story with secret wars

I had actually missed the question and answer regarding multiple currencies, but after I went back and read it... I would like to say that I really like that there are different canonical names for the various types of coins depending on region. A gold piece is a gold piece is a gold piece, but being able to describe a treasure hoard as containing crowns, measures, sails and even scarabs adds a bit of interest, since the coins came from all over the Inner Sea region.

Given their nature, would it be particularly odd for a dragon to become obsessed with collecting Thassilonian or Azlanti coins for their hoard, both of which must be fantastically rare to find in the modern era, and yet not intrinsically worth any more than coins of the same sort minted yesterday in Absalom?

Having in-world names for coins IS important, if only for us to use those names in our fiction or in in-game handouts. But being able to refer to them all as "pieces" is equally important, since that means we only have to define that once, not once every time we mention a coin.

I don't think it'd be that odd for a dragon to become an obsessed coin collector.

Would a dragon who is very social in humaniod societys also consider using slave/henchmen, etc to mint their own coins..to build their hoard, spread their renown, or instill fear

since my wife died in july i feel like ive been living in my personel endtimes


its been really tight here since my wife passed away so i dident get anything this year...


I hope you have a very merry christmas..this first christmas without my wife has been sad and strange....ive fallen behind on so many books in the last few months..just wanted to let you know that i think glorian is the greatest of all the currently published rpg worlds

i dont know how to make my own fourm so i chose this one
my wife died..shes been gone since july2..i was her full time care givers for over 18 years..she had so many health problems those and her meds would fill six pages..she was a fighter and stronger then anyone ive ever met in my life

in her last days i already told james that she told me to tell that james guy i talk about thank you and i said why baby and she said because he made me so happy with his products..

you see my life did not like sc-fi or fantasy..books or movies. had no intrest in rpgs or comics ..but they made me happy and that made her happy..she was sick wheni got the emerald spire in the mail and i was so excited and she was excited because it made me happy...she always wanted to make me happy
i miss her so much..i think i may have to go to grief conselilng....what really hurt me last night..was coming on here like a always do...you see i havent played a rpg in over 20 years but i love reading campaign guides, and rule books and such...well my job was tied to her i worked for the state so suddenly im on unemplyment....i came on there site and there the advanced class guide, the iron gods ap, the people of the stars, the pathfinder tech guide..i relized none of those books would go on my self with the rest of my collection..but worst i would never be able to get them and show them to her and see that look she would get when im so happy...that looks gone forever
in the end i miss her more then i ever thought i could miss anything

thanks comunnity for letting me ramble..i one word of advice is if you love someone tell them...tell them all the time..as the she slipped away at tacoma general the cancer finally taking her..i felt like was slowly turning into a pile of dust....still trying to figure out how to put myself back together
thank all of you for letting me ramble

Hi James im sorry if this post brings anyone down..my wife passed away on the 2nd..she lost the battle with cancer that had been going on for so long.things are really hard right now..but im glad shes at peace..the main thing i wanted to say is that in the last few days she was making her wishs known, one of the things she said to me was "thank that guy james you talk about" and i said why baby and she said " because his books make you so happy" so from jerry (spelled like a guys name) thank you james...

sorry if spelling is sloppy gotta go for now everyone if you have someone in your life that you really love..i pray that you tell them and tell them often

Hi James was wondering what did you think of the fight between brienne and the hound on game of thrones..i have never read the books and know the scene deviated from the books but i thought it was fantastic

In regards to the AP and that they are monthly, I look at them more like magazines then books. Basically, with Paizo losing the Dragon and Dungeon, the AP's replaced that loss...from what I understand. So, though they are NOT magazines, I view them more similar to magazines (even in how they are put together with different sections) than a book release per se.

So, in the collection of APs, I'd also view getting back issues similarly to how you would with a set of magazines (or comics). Unfortunately, just like back issues of those items, with APs, some will be higher priced (more valued by some) than others, and/or harder to get.

much of what you say is true..unfortunatly that also encourages pirateing..which is wrong but out there in massive numbers..i dont mean to offend anyone here and if im late to this discussion as vic has shown..i just dident know about the other threads...suppose i'll go read some more numenera


print on demand?.....


What i dont like is being a late comer to pathfinder aps and other products go out of print..im trying to collect all the books but it makes it hard..i loved that rise of the runelords was collected in hardcover and i understand that you dont want to do alot of hard covers, that you would rather people buy the books monthly..i get all that but i do wish you would consider hardcover collections when books go out of print
thank you


nukes smooks dirty, dirty, bombs or the rtx nutron sphere..these are voice activated by triger words...both spoken and satelite transmited..manual activation is more complicated it must be opened and made flat, turning it into a circuit based map..the right combination can explode the sphere or send a signal to other spheres..if spheres are activated in combination they automaticlly wake up a satelite over anartica (as a side note it was placed over that location after spys in world war two followed hilters explorers that were trying to find the hollow earth theory that hilter believed in so much...thats another story for another day)only two men know the proper code to destroy a combination of spheres or the daisy chain as termed by kennedy..there are only 6 links in the chains...each link in a safe location moscow being one..thank god the president is not one of the people refered to a the dyson twins...

of course i could be completely full of s@&#..but you never truely know do you


Of course putin could over play his hand..the eu is weak..god knows with obama destroying this country we're weak..but if the ukrane turns into a true blood bath..and no one will help....remember all those pipelines for energy that run right through that country are soft targets..a few dudes with bombs cut off the energy to to eu which backlashs right on putin.
shhh plus the suite case bombs reagan smuggled into moscow just might change a few minds


Hi james
i was wondering im creating a gnome npc i want them to be a inventor..what class should i make them..wizard? i want them to use magic
thanks


Hi James i hope your having a great day

i have read the comic since i was 5 in 1970, i have never missed a issue since at on time i own evey issue including number one ( a brokered deal but at least i had it for five days lol )
