Typo fixed!

This is the best one yet--super good!!! I agree with what logsig said about the team coming together.

Only one typo is killing me, though. Shouldn't “We can just leave him here!” be "We can't just leave him here!"?

Keep up the good work, Sutter! I can't wait for your next novel (whatever it is), and I would love to see some official Starfinder fiction.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Awesome! Thanks you.

Does Paizocon have an "exhibit hall" like area with stores (such as Paizo), artist booths (such as Wayne Reynolds), etc.? What are the hours they are staffed/open? Where are they located within the hotel? Forgive me if this has already been covered elsewhere (I couldn't find anything). Thanks!

On a related note, will there be a Reaper Miniatures Paint & Take again this year? And how does that work exactly?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Is there any registration Thursday night?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Sweet!

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Woot, woot! Super excited I got in on this. I'll be one of the players at the table. Jessica, is there any way I can call dibs on playing as Nadezhda, the paladin? I like the character and feel like I could roleplay her well. She reminds me of Samara from Mass Effect.

This was really fun! Is there an answer key somewhere that we can check to see if we got everything right?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

I've figured out everything except Keskodai and Raia. Is that copy of Keskodai's letter still coming? Please say yes! My son and I are really enjoying these. Kudos on the Quig puzzle, btw. That one was awesome!

Hello Chad,

Sorry about that! I've manually pushed the scenarios through and you should see them on your account now. Just let me know if you have any troubles accessing them.

Thanks!

Got 'em! :) Thanks so much!

I'm a Starfinder superscriber, but the SFS Scenarios haven't shown up in my downloads yet either. :(

P.S. I picked up my physical copies at Gen Con, if that matters.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

So if we'll be playing in some Starfinder Society games at Gen Con, are we allowed to use these (level 1 versions)?

Or do we still need to create our own original Starfinder Society character?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Hi! Thanks for all the info. This is awesome!

So just to make sure... Are we able to come by the Paizo booth during exhibit hall hours and pick them up at any time during the 4 days of Gen Con?

And will there be a separate little bundle specifically set aside with my name on it just waiting for me to come by and pick it up? :)

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Hello! Please cancel the following pre-orders:

4207862: Starfinder core rulebook and adventure path #1

4205358: Starfinder star map and pawns

Please let me know when this has been taken care of. Thanks! ~Chad

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Oh, man! :) The final artwork for the Starfinder GM Screen has been officially revealed on the Paizo blog, and it looks spectacular! Very pleased. Officially adding this to my Starfinder preorders.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

I realize the "stunning artwork of a battle scene" might not be ready yet, but can you tell us if a specific artist has been commissioned to do it?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Will those of us who already paid for the original Malefactor PDF (I bought it here at Paizo, along with More Malcontent) get some kind of free version of the updated Pathfinder content? Or, can we get a discount on the new PDF?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Agreed! $3 is a great price point for a full 20-level character class.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Ah, drat! Am I too late!? I'm playing a Sylph cleric of Gozreh (wind domain and storm subdomain) right now because I love wind stuff. Would love to check this out!

Gloves of Reconnaissance author should be "Chad" Bartlett instead of "Char." Thanks! :)

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

My new lower shipping price was $10.69--still kinda high but MUCH better than $16.16.
Enough so, in fact, that I went ahead and ordered the one with the Pathfinder Beginner Box art.

Thank you, Paizo, for listening to those of us who thought the shipping price was high and making an adjustment.
This is yet another reason (on a long list) to love you guys! :)

P.S. If you want to remove my earlier post on this thread, please go ahead.
Now that the problem has been addressed, that probably shouldn't be one of the first things potential buyers see.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

I had the exact same reaction!
Shipping on mine said it would be $16.16.
I was like, "Are you frakking kidding me!?"
Then I cancelled the order.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

So, I'm a little confused (probably because I'm used to the terminology in the Time Thief PDF).

Are "advanced mote powers" the same as advanced temporal talents?

Specifically, I'm thinking about taking Future Vitality for my Time Thief character. At what Time Thief level would I be able to take that?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32 , Star Voter Season 6, Star Voter Season 8, Star Voter Season 9

Thanks, Eric!!! I've been wondering if my item was in there. I'm relieved to know that it was (and that it didn't get culled).

I never saw it, and an extremely similar item made it into the top 32, so I kept thinking maybe I forgot to fill out the subject line of my submission.

I didn't even make the top 89, but I'm glad my item at least had the chance to compete.

Sincere thanks for compiling this list. That's a lot of work. Much appreciated! :)

I like your reviews. I've used them several times to help me make a decision about buying a product. It's so much better than considering an item with no reviews.

I knew you'd done a lot of these, but 1,000!? Holy crap, dude! That's impressive!

I especially like that you call them like you see them. When you're let down by something, you say so, and when you think something is really cool, your passion comes through.

It's obvious you do these because you care. Thanks for all your hard work, End!

A certificate has been catapulted your way, Chad!

Have a very happy and merry Christmas!

Thank you, Cristian!!! :)

This is the sort of thing that made me fall in love with the Paizo community in the first place.

I wish you a safe and happy holiday! The same goes for everyone else here on the messageboards and the Paizo staff as well. Merry Christmas!

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

I'd like one, Klaus, if that's OK.

I'm actually out of a job right now, so that would be spectacular!

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Did I win?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

I may have missed it in skimming the reviews, but is there a way for allies in the malefactor's party to resist her aura that causes a penalty to saving throws?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

+1, man! Well said!

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

I searched online and, you know, I couldn't find a really good Car Wars link. The best one I could find was the Car Wars UK website. Hopefully, once they start the Car Wars Kickstarter in 2013, they'll come up with a revamped website (kind of like they're doing for Shadowrun).

Here are some others I found:
Car Wars (main site)
Car Wars Wikipedia entry
Car Wars BoardGameGeek entry
Jeffro's Car Wars Blog

If anyone knows of some other good ones, please share! Thanks!

Will they give you a free copy of the game when it is finished or do they just get paid to have fairly knowledgable (Players like many of you who know the game better than them) put in on how things should go?

You'll still have to pledge toward the Car Wars Kickstarter once they get it rolling if you actually want a copy of the revised game. The only Car Wars thing you could pick up at this point is a T-shirt.

They'll solicit fan feedback (Steve seems to like surrrrveys!), but ultimately it's a product we'll have to pay for. At least we'll get a say in the development--hopefully to a degree that feels worthwhile.

And, yeah, like Whiskey Jack pointed out: It's official! The Ogre Kickstarter has reached over $700,000. There WILL BE a relaunch of Car Wars! BOOYAH! :) I hope this thread helped in some small way.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Shifty, that sounds awesome! :) I liked Whiskey Jack's idea about having cardstock weapons to attach to them, too!

deinol, I think you're right! With 50 hours to go, it looks like the Car Wars thing will happen for sure. I'll still get the T-shirt to show my support. I like that it'll say "I made Steve Jackson work on Car Wars." (Although, like I said, they probably would have worked on it anyway).

And I really like getting access to the early forum. Here's how Steve described it: "an exclusive Car Wars forum, where we’ll build the new edition from the ground up - issues like "which classic cover do we use?," "10 phase, 5 phase, or 3 phase movement?," and "do we include boats?" Once the project launches, surveys will be open to the public, but only supporters of the current project will get in on the preliminary planning."

Did you know than in the original pocket-box edition you had to use a small and large handgun to kill yourself and it took two rounds to do it. A small pistol did 1hp of damage and a large pistol did 2hp of damage. Your driver had 3hp and was knocked unconsious affter taking 2hp damage. To kill yourself you had to shoot yourself with the small gun first, so you don't knock yourself out, and then shoot yourself with the large gun.

OK, no offense Xabulba, that's funny and all, but why the heck would you kill your character like that!?

Is it because he lost a duel to "Ballistic" Bambi Beethoven?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

LOL! That sounds like a fun character.

Did any of you guys ever play the board game, Thunder Road?

Oh, man! I had forgot about that. All the AADA guides were cool, but I LOVED the Australia one!

Anyhow the $23 Car Wars goodness is US only :(

Shifty, did you see the $30 T-shirt that will ship internationally? I admit that's a lot for a T-shirt, but it's an option.

I'm not sure I like the way SJG is going about it though. SJG want's me to pledge money to restart a game I don't want so that maybe in the future, if they get enough funding, I can pledge more money to get the game I do want.

Yeah, I don't particularly like that, either. In fact, based on all the comments and feedback they've received, I think they'll do a Car Wars Kickstarter regardless. Which means they're just milking us for money. All that being said, however, I don't mind putting up enough money for the T-shirt to kind of "put my money where my mouth is." Maybe they're doing it as one more way to gauge interest.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

I also really liked the Uncle Al supplements. In addition to cool armor and weapons for you and your car, they also had all the fun, goofy gadgets--everything from auto targeters to beer refridgerators to switchable ammo magazines. Great stuff! And it was presented in a fun way, like you were really shopping from a catalog. Some of my favorite RPG books ever!

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

OK, If any of you know what Car Wars is and want to see it resurrected for a new edition from Steve Jackson himself, now is the time to act! Steve Jackson Games is currently running a Kickstarter for Ogre (a different game) that ends in 4 days. If you pledge $23 ($30 internationally), you can get a Car Wars T-shirt, and if the Ogre Kickstarter hits $700,000 (It's currently at about $600,000), they'll officially launch a Car Wars Kickstarter as well. Booyah!

I have fond memories of Car Wars. It's like playing a role-playing game of Mad Max or The Road Warrior. Designing your car was always my favorite part--outfitting it with things like machine guns, armor, pop-up turrets, or even spike droppers and oil slicks. In a post-apocalyptic world, Car Wars was a fight for survival on barren highways, in Autoduel arenas, and everywhere in between. Ah, the memories! Let's bring it back!

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

I actually think Paizo doing a Mass Effect RPG could be freaking cool!

In fact, I'd buy it without a second's hesitation.

How much starting wealth should the gypsy have?

That's good news! I'm glad to hear that Time Bandit scales with you.

...though temporary increases (such as a eagle's splendor) don't affect that number.

Would that mean you're also protected from temporary decreases like ability score damage/drain. Or would those not count as "temporary"?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Oops! I thought of another question...

When you take Aevum Mastery, do you also gain another point to your daily aevum pool, or do you only gain the ability to use your existing pool of aevum points in a new way?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

I have a [potentially dumb] question about the Time Bandit advanced talent:

Do the extra motes lock in at whatever your CHA bonus is when you take the ability, or do they increase/decrease with your current CHA bonus?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

I have a couple questions:

1. Can Aevum Mastery be taken more than once?

2. What level divination spells can you use Precognition for (in relation to your Time Thief/Time Warden level)?
