if its Kilrogg, can I have all your stuff? ;)

Ha! Kilrogg was me and James's server in the way back! I'm still on there (just haven't played for a while), but he's moved on to other servers, even other games. Cyber hussy.

Yeah, that's how he spends most of his week by the by folks: "Yeah, yeah, looks good, whatever! Now Go Away! I'm Throttling this Gorilla for his Rubies!!11!1." ...Or whatever you do in that game. :P

Throttling gorillas for their rubies is Noob Stuff. Three things I accomplished since my last post here:

1) Destroyed a 20-foot-tall demon that had moved into an ancient pyramid and was posing as an oracle.

2) Rescued a harem princess from being menaced by a man-ape at the end of a long tunnel filled with poison air.

3) Found out what happened to this one guy's brother (ANSWER: Brother had been torn apart by four torturers; I picked up the pieces, put them in a sack, then gave the sack to the guy. He seemed pleased with the proof that his brother was now out of the way for his own inheritance.)

All in all... not all that different a day's work than at Paizo, really.

Hey - it's enormously cool that the boss cares enough to field random customer questions and comments late on a Saturday night. Were all CEOs so dedicated and conscientious, the world would be a much nicer place :)

It's also enormously cool that the Editor-in-Chief is up late answering... uh - wait, shouldn't you be editing or chiefing something? ;)

I'm chiefing. Trust me.

What kinda chiefing we talking bout here? I'm studing to be a herboligist...

What does that mean, exactly? What is a developer? Is that another word for author/writer? Or, is a developer a bunch of things, like idea person, editor, writer, proofer, etc...? What shall Mr. Reynolds' job be, exactly?

A developer basically makes other people's ideas work better by strengthening mechanics and concepts. Though we don't get too tied up about titles and job descriptions at Paizo—we try to let people do what they're good at without pigeonholing them.

Man. With a straight line like that, do I even need a joke?

Congrats on your new job, Sean!

What's the chance that we'll be able to see some of the Pathfinder minis painted up by Sean now?
Assuming they have some sitting about, very high. Not that they'd look great by my brush, but it would be fun. :)

I am going to try to get Sean to show me how to paint minis so I can get some color on the 1,000+ little pieces of metal sitting around my home. :)

<snip>

-Lisa

I tried getting into painting when the Lord of the Rings metal minis came out. I bought some minis and some books and some paints and brushes.

I got better, even entered a Lord of the Rings painting contest in the amateur portion. I won at my local store, went to the next level, mailed in my submissions and never heard back.

But I really like painting and would like to get better. Unfortunately, all of my paints dried up during my 8 months in Iraq and subsequent move to Korea, so I'm sitting around with no paints to get back into it.

I've looked into the Paizo store, hoping to find some inexpensive paint sets (not single jars), but haven't found what I'm looking for.

I really don't want to spend too much money on paints, because I'm really not that great at painting, and "high-quality paints" won't really help me out there. I'd prefer some simple hobby paints, you know the kind that come in a line of connected little plastic pots with attached lids. They never cost too much, and would suit me well.

Well... Sean's not increasing the editorial headcount, remember. He's replacing Mike McArtor, who has moved on to a different career. So as awesome as Sean is, unless he's bringing his clone (which is possible), we aren't getting an actual man-hour boost here.

And even if we were... I wouldn't want to rush out the PFRPG. That thing has to be close to PERFECT before I let it go off to the printer. ;-)

I have several bottles of simple acrylic craft paint (Delta Ceramcoat®, Americana®, etc., 2oz. tall bottle, bought them at Michael's for cheap) in heavy-use colors (red, black, white, blue, yellow, green, and various browns). They work fine. I know a few professional-level painters who ONLY use these paints and never the high-grade professional stuff (though most professionals prefer the high-end paints). I haven't seen either of those paint brands in a set, but you could probably pick up 3 primary colors, 3 secondary, black, white, a brown, and a silver-metallic for under $30 total and they'd last you a long, long time.

Edit: And seeing Lisa's reply below, yes, $1 per jar of mini paints is a good deal, too. :)

While I don't have inexpensive paint sets, I do want to point out the sale node for the Adiken paint line. At a bit over $1 a jar, it is a pretty inexpensive way to build back up a paint set. I use these paints at home and they are pretty nice. Build your own sets based on the colors you like! We even have the Adiken paint brushes on sale, if you need an inexpensive restock of those.

You can still escape the insanity! :D At how many other companies would you see an exchange like this taking place on their message boards??? Fleeee before it is too late and they can complete Hyskosa's Hexad, unleashing a Grand Conjunction's worth of madness upon the worlds of the multiverse!

Thanks, Sean and Lisa! It's neat to know little things like who uses what kind of paints.

And, Lisa, thanks for the link to the on-sale paints. My comment really wasn't meant to say that your prices are too high, because they seem quite normal. I like buying small sets because I'm generally bad at knowing what shades of colors I want, and many sets come in basic sets or "matching" shades that tend to go together. And I like cheap sets because... well, I'm on a budget. :)

Paizo hires Sean K. Reynolds as a developer for Pathfinder! Paizo's Murderers' Row lineup is complete! We haven't seen the likes of this since Lee, Kirby, Ditko, et al, worked together during the halcyon days of the Marvel Bullpen.

It's obviously a great fit for both sides and I can't wait to buy all the gaming goodness about to result from this partnership.

This sums up my thoughts.

Or anything I'm qualified for. Come on, I have a high school education and two years experience in stopping myself from hitting my boss when he does something stupid. Can't I at least clean your toilets?

Now what is this about lack of absolutes on his website and where would I find that website?

Referring to these two articles on my site, I believe:

http://www.seankreynolds.com/rpgfiles/misc/variantfewerabsolutes1.html
http://www.seankreynolds.com/rpgfiles/misc/variantfewerabsolutes2.html

I would like to see some of the ideas of fewer absolutes incorporated into PFRPG, especially those on immunities. On the other hand, I do think that Fire Elementals should retain their fire immunity - they are creatures made of fire after all. The removal of their immunity in 4E definitely irks me and although it can be justified lore wise, this generally has to be done very obliquely (hotter fire burns up their fuel, or whatever)...

Yeah, already signed up for it, and I didn't even want any XP!

I'm eagerly waiting to get my hands on the PF Beta Rules to start our Beta playtesting. Since I'm ordering the book, I fear it might take some time until it finally reaches the frigid shores of Scandinavia, but I'm sure that it is well worth the wait. :)

By the way, I managed to convince a 4E DM to download the PF rules and skip running 4E altogether (he's more excited about PF, now :)) -- do I get some Ad-Hoc XP for that?

Welcome SKR, I'm not too familiar with your work but I did like the Blood Golem of Hextor a lot as I built a whole adventure around for a party.

Agk! Damn you and your persuasive salesmanship, Lisa!

*grumbling while taking out credit card*

Seriously though, I've been meaning to paint again as the past few years of getting married and moving into a house put that on hold. But I have the old crappy Games Workshop paint pots and their lids were terrible which allowed everything to pretty much dry out. I'll have to see what's still usable and then go buy some of the Adiken stuff. I may look into Sean's idea for Micahels paint for the stuff I use a lot of like black, white and brown. Very cool and thank you.

Thank you Paizo!

Look forward to seeing Sean's stuff!!!

So Sean swung by yesterday and starts in earnest to-dayo-day! Despite reports, however, he is not 6'8" and seems to weight far less than a f*$%ing ton. Maybe I'm just getting him confused with someone else...


Adding Sean is excellent news. Now if only someone could convince WotC to transfer ownership of the D&D brand to Paizo, all would be right with the world

WHAT?!?!?! That was my job!!!! Mine!!!! I'm going to sue! Sue, I tell you.

Hold on one sec.

Okay, I just finished brushing Skipper's mane and giving her an apple. She's so cute! Did you know that when she's happy, she sighs and blinks her big beautiful eyes at me. What was I saying again?

Oh yeah.

I'LL SUE!!! YOU'LL NEVER FIND A CUSTOMER REP AS GOOD AS I AM!!! NEVER!!!

YOU WILL RUE THE DAY, PAIZO.

RUE IT!!!

Spoiler:

Glad to see you officially on board, Sean. I've been a long time reader of your blog and look forward to you devoting more time and brainpower to Paizo.
