Ruins of Pathfinder: Reign of Winter (Inactive)

Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust."

You didn't actually have to vote for eight. I only voted for the ones I really liked. It ended up being seven in my case.


I really like the filth dragon, for some reason. I mean, it has a breath weapon of maggots. Thats just.. just.. shudders.

Still reading through all of them though.

Also whats up with all of the fey that seem to have been posted?

Can someone link where to read and vote? I fumbled around the other day without success.

thanks

I think the number of fey reflects two things.
First, people like the fey and they think that they are very interesting monsters to encounter.
Secondly, I think there is a wealth of material from old folklore and myths that haven't been utilized before that people can draw inspiration from to create a fey creature.

Been too busy to update, that should change shortly. I do however, want to share the updated map of Golarion I made for the Ruins setting:

Ruins of Pathfinder Inner Sea Map


Rob.. that map more than makes up for any delays. *Drools*


I love how friggin' massive Shalast is right now - I wasn't aware that they took over so much of Belkzen - the lower half of which joined Lastwall. Are they just calling that alliance-kingdom Lastwall, then?

Also.. I'd just go and call it the 'Empire' of Shalast at that size. :P

It certainly dwarfs the Imp-Hire of Cheliax (hurhurhur).


That is excellent work as always Rob, good on ya.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Belkzen considers itself sovereign, except it has been so crushed by Karzoug's advance and Tar Baphon that it exists less as a nation of tribes and more as a nomadic people now. Belkzen is in the heart of every Orc, even if Lastwall has more power to enforce/protect borders.

It's a tough situation.

Well deserved Robert. I think round three is where you are going to excel. Your encounters I have seen thus far have been very enjoyable and with interesting elements and great descriptions.

I agree, your skill with maps will also help. I look forward to seeing the final product.

I will be away for eight to ten days starting this weekend due to a trip.

Sorry for the delays guys, RPG Superstar has been a huge time sink. Apparently I'm going to be interviewed on the Know Direction podcast next week and-- there's just so much going on right now! I plan on updating all my campaigns this weekend, either Saturday or Sunday, time permitting.

Aye, assuming it's easily accessible I'll give it a listen. And to echo a bit, everyone here understands the hold up without complaint. It's an awesome opportunity and I hope all of the voters continue to realize what those in your current games are already well aware of.

Am I just really dumb or did they hide the link to vote for round 3 of RPG superstar? I had no trouble finding it in round 2, but now I can't remember where it was, and despite clicking through most of the links in the Superstar page can't find one to vote for round 3....hmm...help?

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

Go to the forum for RPG superstar and look for Chris Lambertz' post about voting, it's in with our submission posts. It's a technical error at the moment that I think will be fixed today.


Just peaking in here to say that Kagehiro's computer is on the fritz. He asked me to relay this to his games.

I think I'm squared away now. Took a trial-by-fire course in BIOS flashing, but got it back up. At work currently, but will be trying to play catchup asap (across all games).

I'll be working that angle on Fenyx when I get home. That post will be a bit too involved to hammer out from work, I'm afraid. Will probably sink a bit of mythic power into the check as well, as I think winning this guy over is probably extremely important in the immediate.

Computer woes continue. Finally nailed down what is causing the problem, though: liquid cooling system has apparently given out. My CPU is not well pleased (nor am I).

Ordered a replacement, which I'm hoping will be here and subsequently installed by Tuesday. In the mean time, my presence will be less than stellar. Basically, it will only be when I can sneak in updates while at work for the next couple of days.

Anyone else aiding Fenyx's Diplomacy check?

You'd better win! I'll be voting for you no matter what.


Just wanted to pop in and say good luck to Robert. It looks like you really wowed a lost of the folks involved, and I look forward to seeing some Paizo products with your name on em. Perhaps an Alternate Setting hardcover for Ruins of Pathfinder. Hehehe


Male Dwarf Cleric (Forge-Master) / 3 Mythic Guardian 1

Have the final entries been posted for review or anything?


Male Dwarf Cleric (Forge-Master) / 3 Mythic Guardian 1

Nevermind, I see they have. I wish the superstar page was more prominent on the main page. I didn't know voting had opened and since closed. Rob I read your adventure (sorry I missed voting) and it was excellent. I plan on listening to the interview later when I have the chance.

I hope you win the contest.

Lantern Lodge RPG Superstar 2014 Top 4

Hey guys, I'm alive! Superstar has sucked a lot of life out of me, however, though since I didn't win I won't be saddled with additional work that'll keep me away from my games. I'm going to take the rest of this week to decompress after everything that's gone on, and I'll be back to my normal efficacy on Monday. Sorry for how things have ground to a halt these last couple months, but that's past now!

Oh well, you still have that awesome tag next to your name and get to write a PFS scenario, right?


Male Dwarf Cleric (Forge-Master) / 3 Mythic Guardian 1

How was the final winner decided? Was it through votes? A combination of votes and the judges approval? Decision by the judges alone?


Male Dwarf Cleric (Forge-Master) / 3 Mythic Guardian 1

Rob I know you've probably heard this a lot lately from friends and other supportive people, but you did an amazing job and should not be too discouraged. To quote Jim Groves from the interview you did with him... "My proposal was likened to an entire adventure path (versus a 32 page module) and so I was not recommended for the top spot. That’s okay! That’s the wonderful thing about RPG Superstar. You don’t have to win the top spot to open doors to a very successful freelance career."

I see a lot of similarities. Hopefully it won't be too long before you are writing the first book of an adventure path.

I honestly figured it was down to Rob or Mike for that last spot. And it looked like the latter stumbled a bit on this round (though overall had some pretty stellar submissions). Hopefully a lot of doors open for you regardless of the Superstar outcome, and I think they will. I'll echo some sentiments elsewhere in saying that of the four pitches, On Fertile Ground is the one that I would have most liked to play or run.

I did notice a lot of the (mostly non-judge) critiques seemed to be complaints about lack of mechanical or fully fleshed out plot points, which struck me as strange in a round about pitching an adventure. Then again, this is the first Superstar I've paid attention to, so maybe that's always the case.

So, for those of you not in my other campaigns, I have way less time to GM these days due to some changes that came up during the middle of RPGSS. I can't access the Paizo boards from work anymore, which is where I did the bulk of my GMing prep. This, unfortunately, means I had to cut Quest for Arcadia and Mysterium Compact. I spent the last week trying to figure out if I could keep them, but it doesn't seem like it.

The good news for you all, is that Reign of Winter is staying on. I'm probably going to be a little slow in updating, but I'm committed to getting through this AP.

I know we've been stalled for a while, so if everyone could give me a shout-out and let me know if you're still alive that'd be awesome. I know some of you have posted just a few days ago, so that's cool. I'm more concerned for Marcellano, Styv, and Talavuc (I know where Teladon's player is and why he's pretty quiet as of late.)

Crusty has been going through some issues lately according to posts elsewhere, including a bout with food poisoning if I'm not mistaken. Can't speak for the other two, though, as I'm not in any other PbPs with 'em (that I'm aware of).
