Can you explain why it's preferable to dilute the brand in that way and to include dungeon dressing in with figures, rather than the way it is "usually" done* (where dungeon dressing bits are bundled separately)?

Unfortunately, no, I can't explain it. This is the way WizKids wants to do it, so that's the way we're doing it. The alternative seems to be no dungeon dressing for anyone.

I don't think WK has had as much luck as they'd like to have with some of the one-offs like the army builder sets we did for goblins and undead. I prepped an orc set and a kobold set that never got released (although the figures did) because these sets were underwhelming sales wise.

I know WK has started to include some dungeon dressing stuff in their unpainted lines. Perhaps strong sales there will have them reconsider?

I dunno.

How much more of the surface of Golarion will be detailed out in the future? I know there has to be more and am waiting to see it.

Also any plans on an actual Epic ruleset?

If I was going to port your unpublished Nex material into the World of Greyhawk, where should I place it?

I still use your old Greytalk materials in my campaign just about every week, by the way. The Whispering Cairn and your planar stuff for Occult Adventures are the best of your best, IMO.

A new Erik Mona adventure cannot come out too soon.

Have you ever 'run out of steam' as a DM but felt obligated to keep going (not due to personality clashes or anything - the players are still into it, but you've just got a better idea for a campaign or have begun to get bored with the old one)?

I abandon campaigns so frequently that I've lately begun to make it a feature, rather than a flaw. My Kings of Absalom game, which I've run for several different groups, is more of a series of interlinked events rather than a continuous ongoing campaign. That gives us a chance to game together for several weeks without setting up a sense that it's something we're going to be doing together forever. Even so, I've fallen off the wagon a bit in terms of circling back to reunite the groups for the third round of the campaign, so even the pros peter out from time to time.

Any tips for how to recapture the motivation/inspiration when a game begins to be a drag rather than a pleasure?
It's been a while since I tried this, but most of my gaming is from my own notes or off the top of my head. Sometimes when things along those lines peter out, my tactic is to try running a "packaged" adventure instead.

Cool. Thanks, Erik.

I nearly always run published adventures, but I homebrewed for twenty years before I started doing that. Maybe I should try your tactic in reverse and go back to running off the cuff.

Cheers.

Thanks again.

I seem to be very much in the minority, but the inclusion of dungeon dressing has taken the gloss off the PFBattles sets for me since they started. Nonetheless, I think you've done an excellent job in piece selection and "rarity" in terms of which pieces are included as duplicates.

Can't have this thread die now, there's still questions that need answering.
