Is anybody else picking up on the Marvel Comics influence here?

Definitely got shades of Jim Starlin, among many other things, in there!

A fun story, and pleasantly Indiana Jones-ish. Needs an editorial pass, though; a couple of characters change names partway through, and "We stumbled right into the master map room, where tube after tube of old parchment lied under a thick layer of dust..." is wrong, plus a couple of other minor typos. Still good stuff--I could see this happening in an actual game. Love the subtlety of the attacking armor in the accompanying art, too.

A good story poorly written. I hate the first two sentences (farts and freaking out Halfings, um, ok),

Yeah, the "church fart" and "freaked [him] out" stood out as modernisms to me and felt obtrusive, though I suppose it establishes the irreverent tone of both the story and Twilp immediately. Plus, I at one point asked aloud reading it, "Oh, does he like gold?" Still, I thought it recovered nicely and ended well.

and I don't know what "copulas" are, but I suspect they are similar to cupolas.

Eh, a minor typo already fixed by the time I got to read the story.

When did Valeros die?

I believe it was in the Spiral of Bones comic series.

Kyra and Meri are back to together!!!!!!!!! I thought they broke up back in spiral of bones comic?

This reminds me: Do we know if the next comic series will start reflecting the edition switch (changes to displayed mechanics, character designs, etc.)?

Oh, and props to Biagio d'Alessandro for the awesome illo!!

Is Sutter writing prompted by the art in these pieces? The art can't be commissioned for these stories, right?

Really enjoying these vignettes, especially when paired with the "iconic evolution" videos. A nice bit of synergistic promotion for Pathfinder 2.

Appreciate that, thank you. I'll let you know if anything goes wrong with the credit. Thanks again!

I've just signed up for a Pathfinder Adventure Path subscription--looking to get in on "Return of the Runelords"--and even though the "start with this volume" option gives me a choice of books to begin the subscription with, it always defaults to the other, previous volume ("The Six Legend Soul") by the time I get to checkout. I change it back in my cart again, but it always reverts by the time I'm ready to confirm the buy. I made the purchase anyway, but can you change the order to begin with "Secrets of Roderic's Cove" instead?

(It also seems to think I want to use my $15 credit even though I kept pressing the "do not use" button, but that's a separate issue).

Thanks for your time.

Mine showed up this afternoon in Wisconsin (USPS). Not the best packing job I've ever seen, but I understand there was some, uh, unexpected urgency in the shipping process. Otherwise, all is well.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion Subscriber

Same issue here; I'm being told the lowest shipping rate is more than the $59.99 for the bundle.

D'oh! I just KNEW that someone was going to point right to it the second I posted it!

...unless I'm just missing it. Where ELSE are we supposed to speculate, rumor-monger baselessly, and pre-emptively criticize? (Aside from the whole of the Internet, I mean).

Good to see it going out with some top material. Keep it up for three more issues and maybe you'll salve the wound of losing the magazines somewhat (...maybe not. Keep it up anyway).

Strength in numbers, ladies.

"For Gamer Chicks, by Gamer Chicks" (not their actual slogan, but it sums up the intent of the site). It's still pretty new but there's a lot of potential, especially if you're looking to contribute.

Sagittarius, though it's November 24, which I'm told may or may not be considered "cusp"... plus I was born a couple months premature, which I'm told may or may nor have some kind of effect...

I may just have to accept I'm an individual. Screw you, stars!

who was jealous


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion Subscriber

I'm bumping this because I know from other forums lots of folks are using this. Anyone have another take on it?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion Subscriber

Wow! Another staggeringly thorough review. I admit I've come to look forward to your comments on the most recent issues. It's interesting to get some perspective on this stuff from somebody who's obviously been at this longer than me (or at least paying more attention). By all means, keep it up.

I’ve been making the rounds downloading every character generator I could find (Redblade, RPGXplorer, PC Gen, etc.) trying to find the one that “fits,” and so far my incredibly fantastic taste has me definitely leaning Hero Lab’s way (though they all have stuff to recommend them), to the point I even got the upgrade. I’ve been using it more than any of the other ones so far, mainly for NPCs, but it’s held up pretty well no matter what I’ve thrown at it – race, class, cross-class, spells, whatever—with no glitches, at least in my experience, so it’s been pretty versatile in that regard. Gimme a couple more months with it and I’m sure I’ll smoke pouring out of hard drive (I will BREAK you, Hero Lab!).

I think it’s still pretty new, so there’s a lot of room for new races, classes, and spells, though so far the developers have been pretty good about issuing updates (they just had one this last week that added a bunch of the demi-human races, classes, and fixed some niggling things from the previous version). There’s a “custom” option under gear and spells, plus an editor. The editor’s documentation is still incomplete (clearly “in-progress”) but it looks like all the info is there if you’re willing to give it a go; presumably (hopefully) more complete instruction on the editor is forthcoming.

Also in its favor is that I can figure out what the hell I’m doing pretty easily (a lot of the freeware stuff is obviously made by programmers in their spare time who have the technical know-how but not the design sense), so I’d recommend it almost for the interface alone.

Code Monkey’s been down a while, it looks like; I never got the ooportunity to download ETools so I’m a little annoyed I never got the chance to try it out, though I, too, heard things were going downhill for them (not sure how bad a sign I should take their site being down as).
