Second Darkness Anniversary Edition?


Second Darkness

Andoran

Hey, if Rise of the Runelords can get this treatment...

I know paizo.com still has copies of all of Second Darkness for sale, but could we at least get a $5 pdf of stat-block conversions, use of classes invented since the last version of the world's most popular rpg using the OGL? :-)

I'm imagining Drow Alchemists would be awesome to behold, among other possible updates...

Paizo, is Second Darkness (OGL) going to sell out any time soon, or will it be five years before it gets an Anniversary edition?

Thanks,

Zardan Zelaznar!


I would imagine that Second Darkness will also get a hard cover. Part of the problem is that the AP are coming out two per year, and it takes longer than that to get out the hard covers. PLUS all the "splat" books coming out (but more connected than D&D splatbooks were), and you end up with hair-pulling scheduling going on over there.

BTW, I'm a diligent worker, and willing to type up a Paizo-specific resume. If y'all could post a link, I'm sure you could get a whole host of novella-resumes about why you should hire each of us to work on cool stuff y'all want done but just don't have the time for.

So - I doubt we'll be waiting for an entire five years per hard cover, but I expect we'll see a CotCT hard cover next, and each AP in order. (Barring a "dud" AP, which I have yet to hear of one coming out. Not every AP is for every person, but each has its own high and low points.)

Paizo has NO PLANS to compile any more APs. The RotRL hardcover is a special case because it is 1) the first AP and 2) largely out of print. This will NOT be repeated.

Speculation that other APs will eventually be compiled in hardcover only hurts sales, as people decide to wait for the hardcover.

Seriously, guys, please stop asking for other compilations. It's not going to happen, and I don't want people who don't read carefully thinking it's likely to happen.

One of the main reasons for not doing this one is that just having the notion out there that we *might* do this for other APs is harmful. I'd really appreciate it if everybody would help squash that idea whenever and wherever it is raised.

This is a unique circumstance.

Thanks, Joana.

I reiterate my request for a $5 pdf stat-block (and possibly tactics) update. That would help gamers NOW, and *if* SD were ever compiled, then the $5 pdf could be rolled into that.

There's a fixed number of OGL non-PFS APs, so ideally Paizo would do something (internal or farm-out) to update things and make money doing it...

Have you seen this thread? It's full of conversions to Pathfinder rules a GM made; I've used these statblocks extensively in my own game.

I'm not exactly sure if Anniversary Edition of the worst AP is really warranted... At least not until CotCT and LoF get their due :)
