Sorry; I couldn't get an email through to you. I ordered the Curse of the Crimson Throne Limited edition hardcover and accidentally had you send it to my old address. They couldn't deliver it and sent it back to you. Can you re-send it to me? Hit me up for the new address.
Has anyone created any campaign-specific character sheets? We are about to play Carrion Crown and I would love a sheet that is evocative of that AP (looks a bit gloomy and gothic-y).
If not, someone should definitely get on that. I'd pay a dollar or two for sheets that fit the APs I'm running or playing.
The gaming community I'm involved in love the APs, but have yet to actually finish one. Due to the vagaries of life and the often-flaky nature of gamers, our campaigns tend to flame out before the PCs hit 10th level.
What do you think?
Or it could be the gnomes that cut off your hands while you slept and replaced them. So everything now "feels" different to you. It happens a lot more than most people think.
Well, it wouldn't be the first time. Although with St. Paddy's day coming up, I tend to blame the leprechauns.
I did compare HH to an SS module. The cover did seem the same, but the book felt floppy, as if it were heavier maybe.

I received this in the mail yesterday and it looks absolutely decadent. The layout is gorgeous, the art is excellent, I love the maps. The appearance of the whole thing is luscious. Kudos.
I did notice one odd thing. The cover seemed flimsy, very different than the other AP books. It seemed much more like a magazine than a book. Was this a conscious decision? I can't help but think that it will affect the durability of the module over time.
Dear Paizo guys -
My group and I are starting our new campaign Feb 26. We haven't been able to play regularly in over a year, and we're very stoked about it.
Although we have plenty of APs to choose from, we'd really like to play Carrion Crown. So, is there any way you can send the Haunting of Harrowstone to me about a month early? We'd greatly appreciate it.
Any of the 'Swords' books by Fritz Leiber.
Those are just a few of my favorites.
Oh man, good GMs are worth their weight in platinum, aren't they? We've probably all had good and bad experiences with the folks running the game; good GMs can make even a mediocre adventure into a fantastic thrill-ride of escapism. Bad GMs can ruin even the best adventure. The people who pour their time and creativity, good humor and discernment into a gaming session just can't be beat.
As one of the authors of the adventure, I can tell you that there was no plan by either the authors or the editor to step it up a notch.
It was simple: Greg said, "Kevin J., here is the overarching plot and the adventure's level. Now write me some encounters, boy, write!" And I did. Primarily because of my love of the game but partially because he was holding a beat-stick.
On the encounter you referenced, I was just trying to make that particular type of encounter interesting and challenging. I'd never used that particular thing before and wanted it to be more than just a one-shot spell-effect.
I'm glad your party handled it well, and I hope you all enjoyed it. Danger does add some spice, doesn't it?
To JaeWalker -
I'm Kevin J. Wright, Greg's co-author on this trilogy of scenarios. My adventure-writing naivete (charming though it may be) may be to blame for the difficulty of the adventures. I was just trying to match up appropriate CRs with the level of the adventures, but that can be tricky. One CR 5 is not the same as every other CR 5, and in my inexperience, I may have put too many difficult encounters together. So my apologies if it was ruthlessly lethal.
Thank you so much!
