I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be A.

Very cute comic. I have added it to my list. 8^)

That said, I have a couple of questions and comments. (Intended as constructive criticism; hopefully they come across that way. 8^)

Do you have a "Current comic" page? I saw the category, but it doesn't have the most recent strip.

Some of the strips had some pretty small text, that was hard to read. Could you increase their size, or just make the text larger? (Some of us are getting old here. 8^)

The D&D Facebook page posted something about getting a box of D&D books in the mail. If you've mailed D&D books recently, please check this post.

Scarab Sages

Thanks, Diego!

And how many companies would tell a customer how to game their own system? This is why Paizo is awesome. 8^)

Hello Wonderful Paizo CS People!

Please cancel my currently pending subscription order, and my AP subscription. I'm sorry to go (and to lose my Charter tag), but shifting financial priorities (and an absolute lack of interest in Strange Aeons) are dictating my departure.

(I was going to keep the sub long enough for the Curse of the Crimson Throne HB to come out, to get the discount and free PDF, since that outweighed the cost of a coupe AP issues, but with its delay, I don't think it's worth it anymore.)

I will keep an eye out, and may come back on for the next AP.

Scarab Sages

Looks like it. I got my email earlier this afternoon.

Scarab Sages

Cool, thanks!

Scarab Sages

That's cool. Thanks for letting me know!

When they are ready to go (presumably next month), do they need to go in two packages? If so, would it perhaps be possible to hold one item to the next month's sub, to save shipping costs? (I don't know if any of this would work; just thinking "out loud".)

Scarab Sages

Hi,

I just got my order auth email for this month's sub order. It included a few of the new Munchkin items that I had sidecarted last week. It listed the order going in two shipments, but that was okay.

Then I got a second email that seemed to say the Munchin items were put back in my sidecart. Looking at my account, and my orders page, that appears to be the case.

Just wondering what's up with this. It's not a big deal, as long as I get them eventually, but wanted to ask. 8^)

Scarab Sages

I'm pretty boring. Other than being generally "weird" - odd sense of humor, interested in most geeky stuff, etc. - my the biggest thing about me is that I am very introverted. I am perfectly happy, most of the time, to be alone. I could happily go for days without seeing another person. Even if I'm surrounded by people, as long as I don't have to interact with them, I'm fine. I can interact when I need to, but it takes energy.

I doubt this is anywhere near a mental health issue, though.

Occasionally, I wonder about OCD or ADD or other things, but seldom very seriously. I certainly haven't been diagnosed with anything...

Scarab Sages

My wife and I did Curse of the Crimson Throne with a Ranger and a Wizard/Rogue. I'm pretty sure I didn't pull any more punches than I usually do. 8^)

Scarab Sages

Maybe he's trying to bring some order to a chaotic, luck-based, game? (Yeah, this is a stretch...)

There is a note at the top of the page indicating that this volume will *NOT* be part of the AP subscription... though AP subscribers WILL get the free PDF if they pre-order. So just no AP sub discount.
You still at least get the 15% discount from Pathfinder Advantage with an AP subscription.

Exactly. The amount I save by keeping the 15% discount and getting the PDF for free by still being a subscriber is more than what I would spend on the next couple AP issues.

Good play, Paizo. 8^)

You went through an entire AP in a month?! :-O

It took us at least two years to complete CotCT!

We spent pretty much every waking moment (outside of work, etc.) playing that. Those two characters just "clicked" so well we couldn't stay away. 8^) (Okay, it might have been closer to two months, but still...)

On the Additional Rules page, in the Overland Movement section, the Table: Mounts and Vehicles is REAAAAALY wide. Possibly because the footnotes of the table aren't line breaking.

Hi Paizo CS wonderpeople!

Please cancel the Munchkin items from my sidecart.

IANAL:
I Am Not A Lawyer

I have seen many comics and comic strips (largely webcomics) that use game mechanics, spells, magic items, races, classes, etc. in their comic. Including a reference to the OGL would probably be safest, but MAY not be necessary. A lot of those terms are generic enough, you might be able to make an argument you're not using them as game terms.

As for the PI, and assuming you're using the Pathfinder world: If the comic you're making is just for fun - i.e., you're not planning to sell comic books or anything along those lines, but just put it up online - you might be able to use Paizo's Community Use Policy. Make sure you read through it thoroughly so you understand the terms, and know if it applies to your case.

Hmmm. Website Programmer.

Realistically: Scribe.

Nope.

Yeah, kinda what I thought, but figured I should ask. 8^)

Sara Marie (and/or other CS folks),

I just got my auth email, and the amount is lower than I expected. (What am I complaining about?!? 8^)

@Jiggy - I see your RPGSS tags in this thread, and they are breaking to a second line for me. I'm on Chrome v44 on Win 7, if that makes any difference to anyone.

Scarab Sages

A familiar gets half its master's hp, rounded down. So, 5 hp is correct.

Scarab Sages

Arazyr was a name I came up with for a background character for a story I was writing, set in my homebrew campaign setting. It was just random syllables that sounded vaguely decent. 8^)

Since the Arazyr in my story was a powerful wizard, I decided to use an "old man" avatar pic. I guess it kind-of worked out, since back in Intermediate School (what we called Jr. High where I grew up) a classmate once took to calling me "Grandpa" - because he thought I looked like an old man. Not sure where he got that from.

Anyway, sometime before I signed up on the paizo.com, I decided to consolidate my online identity. I had been using several different pseudonyms; the main one was something I took from a Spelljammer monster: DeGleash. One of the Plasmoids. But, I decided I wanted to use one thing everywhere, and I didn't want to use something "stolen", so I remembered the NPC from that story and switched to using that name. Has the advantage of being *almost* never taken.

Rogue Genius Games has a couple of spell point books that might be helpful.

My wife and I met at a roleplaying group. It was something my brother had been part of for a few years and so, when I moved back to this side of the state after college, he brought me in. Ironically, the game is now hosted at our house (after the guy who started it had a stroke, not long before our wedding), and I actually don't play in that one anymore. But, we are in a number of other games together at the moment (mostly Pathfinder, but still some 3.5), and are starting to get our kids (ages 5 and 7) into RPGs. 8^)

As another irony, she actually approached me about dating, and it was pretty much immediately after I had (privately) decided to stop actively looking for that sort of thing. So, sometimes these things come at you when you least expect it. 8^)

Scarab Sages

I've been running a campaign that is delving into Gallowspire, and per the description in Dungeons of Golarion, the Upper Crypts level has corpse-like undead melding into larger composite monsters. I was wondering what published monsters are out there that I could use for this? I have found the Necrocraft and Warsworn from Bestiary 4. Are there any others that you folks can think of?

Scarab Sages

Gotcha. I will not bother, then. 8^) Thanks for the answers!

Scarab Sages

I have another request, but a couple of questions first...

If I have you folks put my AP sub on suspension, do I
* get to keep my "Charter" tag?
* get the PDFs once I have it un-suspended?

(I will also confess up front that part of why I'm thinking about doing this is to save them up until I have enough to get the shipping discount. Is it okay to "game the system" like that?)

Scarab Sages

Thanks!

Scarab Sages

That poor dog looks so confused!

Scarab Sages

Hi Awesome Paizo CS Department!

For budgeting reasons, I need to cancel the Pathfinder Tales sub I just started, and clear the copy of Lord of Runes from my sidecart. I hope to be able to start that up again AFTER next month's double AP shipment.

Thanks, Sharaya!

Scarab Sages

It looks like they're going back to the parody covers, so I'll go back to picking and choosing which other cover I want.

Scarab Sages

If the prestige class actually has a spellcasting progression of its own, with spells per day and/or spells known by level, then another prestige class could enhance that.

Mystic Theurge does not have a spellcasting progression of its own, so another prestige class (such as Arcane Trickster) could not enhance that. They would both enhance whatever base classes spellcasting progressions you have.

Scarab Sages

If I remember correctly, Crypt of the Everflame is specifically designed as an introductory adventure. It even has a couple of sequels.

Scarab Sages

I still have mine, due to the kindness of the CS team. 8^)

Scarab Sages

Thanks, Sharaya!

Scarab Sages

Please cancel my Modules subscription. (Just the Modules sub.)

I have more adventures than I can run any time soon, and I need to cut down on expenses. I may resub in the future. 8^)

Scarab Sages

I mostly give punny names to CRPG characters, especially theme characters or throwaway/party filler ones.


  • A dwarf named Flint Anstiel
  • A cleric of the Forgotten Realms got of Justice: Musk 'O Tyr
  • An armorless barbarian named Buck Naekidh

I'm sure I had more, but I don't remember them off hand. 8^)
