I'll be there, as will Paul (all the way from New Zealand this time for him).

It'll be good to get Mathilda to make someone dance again. ;)

Say what you will about 50SoG, it does lead to some odd mash ups and spoofs ...

50 Shades of Steve Buscemi

50 Shades of Santa

And, it should go without saying, but these are probably NSFW for some folks ...

For the OP, you can also have fun with the gunslinger acting as an alarm for all nearby creatures. Firearms are not quiet by nature and if there are groups of creatures who start hearing (i.e. make successful Perception checks) various explosions within their base / lair / etc. the PCs could find themselves matched up against a larger than anticipated, organized force.

This probably applies to your #1.

So this was asked earlier, I think, but was not answered as far as I can tell.

Are you able to apply chronicles from playing APs or modules in campaign mode to Core Campaign PCs?

And, does this open the possibility for replays of APs and modules in campaign mode as well?

Del, I am still recovering from the 7am-2/3am Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (though I got to sleep around 1245am that night) ... ;)

Still, SCARAB was indeed a blast and I am looking forward to next January.

Well, overall, I think it is universally listed as the weakest special (feeling more like a series of unconnected scenario snippets that a solid, unified storyline ... and of course, my persona; issue of the "we don't want to break the law" -> "We don't want to break the law much" -> "Just don't kill anybody" transition that the VC goes through in the scenario). That said, folks had a good time. :)

Seven more possible pages of content for the digital version of Wayfinder 13 are possible ... who will extend the goodness for their fellow gamers by posting a review?

So for the New Year's Day collards and black eyed peas, I always use pork side meat instead of a hamhock (and I quick steam and then saute the collards instead of cooking them all day long). That pork side meat though, it's like bacon's little known cousin ... I always have extra and it when cooked in a pan it ends up with the taste of bacon but with a nice initial crisp texture that quickly just melts in your mouth. Man, I love New Year's Day.

RAWR, huh? Maybe it's an acronym ...

"Really Awesome Written Results"?

"Recently Available World Resources"?

"Razmirans Are Woefully Represented"?

"Really, Aroden's Whereabouts Revealed"?

"Requesting Another Watery Region"?

The possibilities are endless!!! ;)

Please note I am assuming the extra four "A's" are merely there to throw us off...

EDIT: AH! Based off that other clue, it can only be one thing ... GNOMES! Look out Sanos Forest, here we come! ;)

A quick note: The Bookmark for Page 46 is called "Bookmark 25." I think it was supposed to be called "Keeping the Dead Down: An Extremist Order in the Church of Pharasma."

Oops! Thanks for catching that, Itchy. I'll update the .indd file and it will be included in the usual "week or two after publication" update. :)

...and I will hereby begin my secondary task of asking whether you all have enjoyed the issue ... and then pester folks to leave reviews.

Heck, there is even added incentive of getting more material in the PDF version of #13 if you do leave a review ... so what are you all waiting for?

OK, that's out of the way (for this page of comments anyway). Enjoy the issue everyone. :)

I just want to say that Tim and Dain did an awesome job driving this issue into the station. I was kind of discombobulated at the end of 2014. Our fearless Editor-in-Chief pulled off another amazing feat of publishing prowess. And Dain's work on layout is always fantastic. Great job, guys.

Don't forget Garrett. His impact on the layout cannot be understated and he's a big reason that we got it out as soon as we did with all the holiday hoopla thrown into the mix.

1) does the caster have line of sight on the folks planning the ambush? Keep in mind that "If an aura is outside your line of sight, then you discern its direction but not its exact location." So for #1, the answer is "maybe".

The important thing to keep in mind is the DE will not detect ALL evil. If the ambushers are all 4HD or less, and are not undead/outsiders/clerics, then the answer is "no" as creatures of 4HD or less do not get picked up by the spell.

Are the folks hiding in an old growth forest, behind large trees or perhaps behind some boulders? If so then the answer, regardless of HD level, is "no" (as long as there are at least 3' worth of trees between the caster and target or at least 1' worth of stone between the caster and target).

You have a lot of elements to consider when determining the results of DE.

2) I always consider any magic item with the [evil] descriptor to be an evil magic item. If the CL for the item is 5th level or lower though, there is no evil detected.

Good is a more generic term. The opposite of good is bad.

For morality, the terms right and wrong, are also generic.

Evil though is very much a Christian concept - the domain of the Devil versus God. So as a concept it doesn't exist in many cultures, not even in pre-Christian European religions.

Good is not a generic term when the concept of alignment is tossed around. As this is the case within this thread, the concept of good would be in consideration of a good-neutral-evil axis, not a good-bad dichotomy.

So I have to agree that.Z-K being lawful makes sense due the hierarchical nature of his church, the fact he / his followers follow set rites / rituals, and that when making an agreement, he sticks to it.

He's evil due to his habit of, you know, mutilation, torture, etc. All methodically carried out, but definitely evil.

As to the "evil does not exist in the real word" arguments being tossed around, I have one question. Do those who believe that evil does not exist in the real world believe that good exists in the real world?

I went into Canada a few months back and visited a beach while camping. I collected some beach stones like I do every year and at the end of my trip, chucked them on the passenger floor of my car. I later arrived at customs and was asked if I had brought anything back with me. I had the lack of foresight to respond, "Just some rocks."

2 hours later and I still couldn't sit comfortably when I was finally on the road again.

Wonder if you had said stones instead of rocks if it would have had a different result.

So you are wanting to print on your own 3D printer then?

Your best bet may be to just dig into searching the web. This may be a good starting point. It may at least get you closer to what you are looking for.

A-hem ...

HEAR YE, HEAR YE!

The APL's Anniversary game is almost upon us and we have about 20 seats we can fill!

Are you tired of holiday shopping?

Fed up with setting up decorations?

Becoming more Scroogity every day?

Well, we have what you need!!!

That clatter you hear on the roof isn't reindeer, it's Pathfinder Agents.

That sound you thought was bells? Nope, it's the clashing of swords.

Carols? Nuh-uh, it's the cries of those who fall and the cheers of the victors.

Making merry and wassailing? Well, merriment during the game, sure ... and probably beer (for those of drinking age) at the APB afterwards (assuming they are open) ... not sure abut wassail though ...

You know you want to take part in the festivities and the Race for the Runecarved Key!

Sign up at Warhorn!!!

well, here's the rub. We still have a few open seats and we are three days out from playing. The tables we lost were not overly full and I believe those who were signed up have found seats at other tables.

Since we are not seeing any waitlisting with the sign ups, this looks like it will be a light APL weekend, which is fine. If we have folks walk in, we will seat who we can and if we have more players than spaces available at the FPS tables, we do have a PF Card Game table open for each slot, both of which have open seats. Might I suggest folks give the card game a try?

It honestly is not fair to a GM, nor to the players, to minimize prep time for a scenario due to lack of early sign up. Sign ups are how we gauge the interest / commitment level for a weekend and if folks don't sign up, we will give those who normally GM a chance to play.
