Ruins of Azlant fans:

We are pleased to announce that Order of the Amber Die will be starting a new project this coming November:

The Azlant Odyssey

Here is what we can release so far:

12 months
6 marathons
1 entire Adventure Path

The party will consist of:

15-point builds
4 iconic characters featured in the concept art
1 campaign trait per iconic

We try to feature a different spin with each of our projects, and for this one we will be focusing on highlighting the setting itself. We have a lot of elaborate ideas that we’re looking to implement in regard to capturing the environment and experience of underwater/island adventuring, including trying to take our game on-location for the first time!

As always, the entire Adventure Path will be played while employing the full rules set, and as closely as possible to each author’s intent. In addition to our living PDF (containing tips, data, and our play-by-play much like The Giantslayer Endeavor and The Strange Aeons Experiment), we will also be answering questions on this thread about our project as we play through it. Obviously anything time-sensitive is off limits until each volume of the AP is released.

Check back on this thread as we reveal character builds for our iconics over the next few weeks!

9 months
6 marathons
1 entire Adventure Path

As for what the "experiment" aspect of our project is, you'll have to tune into the Paizo Blog later this month when our first report drops.

In addition to our living PDF (containing tips and our play-by-play much like The Giantslayer Endeavor), we will also be answering questions on this thread about our project as we play through it. Obviously anything time-sensitive is off limits until each volume of the AP is released.

Check back on this thread as we reveal character builds for each of our iconics over the next two weeks!

Welcome to our home thread for The Giantslayer Endeavor! Here we will take any questions you have for either the players or GM involved in the most ambitious endeavor in RPG history. These can be about the Giantslayer AP, the marathon experience, or anything you want to ask!

To read the entire Giantslayer Endeavor, see our Dropbox

For a visual journey through the endeavor with us, see our Facebook and Instagram.

Also, check back here for Paizo's recaps of our marathons!

We look forward to sharing our story with the community over the next six months.

Our gaming association, Order of the Amber Die, was the first in the world to complete the Emerald Spire. In our most enduring test of gaming to date, we played 195 hours of the Spire starting on July 5th and finishing on August 8th. I am posting the details of our project, along with the first eight levels of analysis here, followed by an additional level each week. In the hopes of aiding current and future groups seeking to undertake this massive journey, I have included errata and reflections about the Spire experience as well. The write-up contains some spoilers as noted within, and photos can be found on our Facebook page.
