I have been kicking around this idea of a Ghostbusters & Pathfinder mashup for a little bit of time now. I wouldn't go completely modern like the Ghostbusters movies, but I would have some technology flair to the campaign.
What would you suggest as a good group of recommended classes & races?
Obviously, these classes would be great:
Some other more traditional classes might work well too:
What do you think? Any ideas?
[Ascension Games] Announcing Path of Iron, the next book by Ascension Games, along with a Kickstarter launching July 10th, 2015!
I would love to see these companies....
Rogue Genius Games (you guys alone have a lot of feats bullet points and all)
I say Dreamscarred Press, but I own Ultimate Psionics so I am not sure what other feats they have.
Rite Publishing (especially the renegade feats).
TPK games usually puts feats in their books with the new classes and such.
That would be a great start right there.

If it is not in the book and it is all new content, I wouldn't mind throwing a couple extra bucks towards Bloodrager bloodlines
I can see myself really jumping on this and enjoying the products.
However, I have a couple questions...
The monthly product is going to be articles and adventures, so are all the articles going to be lumped together as say a monthly magazine would be?
Are they going to be broken down by article? I ask because when I would be organizing them in my binder, I wanted to know how I would be dividing them.
Next, I downloaded a couple of the samples, and I have a question about them. I printed Archery Contests and when I printed it and punched holes in it, I was surprised to find that the printed holes did not match up with the holes that I punched. I used my standard three hole punch that I always use at work. I don't really understand why that happened. Will this be fixed in the final products?
Looking forward to the book of bloodlines and the whole compilation of Strange Magic. I should be saving $20.00 now!!!
As for "calling out the no etherslinger archetypes"...I just call them how I see them. I think it is good that there are at least 1 etherslinger archetype going into Strange Magic, and I appreciate that you listen to your fans.
Looking forward to having both books be part of my regular campaigns in the near future.
As the Strange Magic subscription has given me a much greater appreciation for Interjection Games, I am in also. I will love to see new classes.
I am in. How does the subscription work, is there a certain date in the month that the product will come out? Say like the 1st of the month like my mortgage? Or do we get a couple days to see what the product is coming out and then can we decide.
Pardon all my questions, again I have never subscribed to a patreon before.
So what you are saying is that I am not required to contribute every single month? I can pick and choose what I want? I thought that I needed to subscribe and take what comes every month.
On another note, when is this patreon planning to go in effect?
Will older products be placed on the patreon? Or just new ones?
As for your question earlier about stretch goals, these are the ones that interest me the most:
I have never supported a Patreon and I will tell you why. If I supported a patreon for say 12 months, I want to know that I will be receiving something of a quality product, AND it is something that I am interested in having. With Patreon, I don't have that option, I would just have to pay you $5.00 (as your example). I love certain Interjection products and others, well I don't see a need to add them to my library. For example, I supported Strange Magic mostly for Ethermagic, and I have been gladly surprised by Truenaming and Composition, and I cannot wait to see this all together in my print book. However, I fluctuate on that like and dislike. For example, I have decided that my next purchase will most likely be The Sanguine Disciple. I read the description yesterday and really enjoyed it. However, I read the Onmyoji & the Brewmaster, and I thought well I will pass on these. Not that they are bad, just not suited for what I am interested in. So that is my problem with a patreon, either love it or hate it, I get a product every month for 12 months. I would hope that if I supported for the year that I would like at least 9 of the products, but I have no guarantee on that. When I support a kickstarter, I know what I am supporting. I do get frustrated, because I don't know how well the company is going to produce the product, and a lot get very delayed, but overall I have been happy with my kickstarter projects.
Okay, rant and rambling over, I hope that helps you our with just one guys opinions.
Okay so light hearted. Not dark and gloomy and all gothic horror. Got it.
I assume you want this to be a one shot adventure, not a adventure that runs a couple times right?
If it is true that you want a one shot, look into something shorter. Pathfinder Society adventures are meant to be one shots. If you can try and squeeze a 32 page adventure in, go for it. I am not sure which ones would involve a birthday party?
If you are just looking for Zany fun, try to do something where the players encounter creatures that will remind them of pop culture things.
I did find this. I own it, however I never ran it. I liked the adventure and thought it was pretty cool idea.
The Clockwork Wonders of Brandlehill (PFRPG) PDF by Mike Myler
A Pathfinder Compatible Adventure for 4-5 level 4 PCs.
Mundane contraptions of incredible complexity appear throughout the realm, but shrink back into obscurity just as quickly as they surfaced. Brandlehill, the gnome town responsible for these impossible to replicate creations, has dispatched local bard Terrence Threncewell to seek out adventurers and end whatever mystery plagues the unique settlement. The PCs, privy to watching the minstrel's own mechanical band go haywire, are commissioned to find a solution to the economic woes of the village just as Brandlehill is attacked by a band of enraged grippli! What plagues these industrious engineers and why have the Glachra Tribes from the nearby Zeranoth Swamps begun a war with Brandlehill?
It's up to the PCs to find out in Mike Myler's first self-published product, "The Clockwork Wonders of Brandlehill!" Each of these modules focuses on two specific themes to engage your players with theatrical descriptions and motifs that put them into the worn leather boots of their characters. This low level adventure focuses on the comical and gross elements of fantasy and is sure to illicit as many giggles from your gaming table as groans of bemusement.
What you will find within "The Clockwork Wonders of Brandlehill:"
Bogden's Tripleshot Crossbow, Phonomono and Grapple Launcher - Three mundane devices with unique effects to compliment the arsenal of any adventuring party.
Cyrreksi's Mirrored Spear - A unique magic weapon especially useful for the unlucky combatant.
Troll Wigs - Whether used in a devastating trap or to make sure a trollkin stays down, any hater of the greenskins will love this enchanted item.
Numerous plot hooks to smoothly integrate this adventure within your existing campaign.
Beautiful flowing illustrations by fantasy artist Thom DeLair.
Five obsessively detailed maps by cartographer Neil Myler.
This introductory adventure is the beginning of the Grualroth's Rot campaign series and proceeds from its sale will go to the production of the next installment, "The Mysterious Peaks of Baranthar."
Frogs. So very many frogs.
It is just a thought. I will keep thinking of ideas.
The title says it all. What is the best Autumn or Halloween themed adventure that you ever ran as the GM or played in as a player? I love this time of year and its so hard for me not to think of Halloween themed games.
How many here have played D&D's original Ravenloft adventure. Sadly, I have not! I wish I had, but I never got to.
Curious about your Halloween gaming. Do you use mood music to enhance the mood? Do you and your players bring bags of candy for the game?
Fantasy mostly. Horror is good also. I mainly play Pathfinder. I own a lot of TPK games, Rogue Genius Games, some Kobold Press, some Adventure a week, and some other odds and ends.
In my all halfling campaign which I outlined, I have adventures that I planned to go one after another which would raise characters from level 1 to level 8, so any higher level adventure ideas would be awesome too.
So I will probably pick up 1 maybe 2 new gaming pdfs. I did just get the Shadow Warrior from rogue genius yesterday.
Any suggestions? I already have a ton of 3pp products and love them all.
Things I don't have:
Interjection Games - Ethermancer, Tinkerer, Cartomancer
Run Amok Games - Six griffons haunt
Demiurge Press - Creature Codex vol.3 it came from the silver screen
Rite Publishing - In the company of Dragons
Little Red Goblin Games - Primal host, and GONZO
Besides these, I have a ton of other 3pp supplements, but I don't have it all. Looking for suggestions.
Here is my 2 cents. I love Owen's Time Thief, Time Warden, Masters of Time, Mythic Menagerie:Ravagers of Time, and 7 time warden & time thief feats. I own them all on pdf.
IF Owen ever decided to make a compilation of all of these pdfs into 1 big compilation book, and sold it as a pdf and a print on demand option, I would PURCHASE it in a second. I would throw my debit card at the computer screen. I love the price cost of pdfs, but to have this all compiled in a beautiful, all organized softcover or hardcover book would be AMAZING!!!
Maybe Owen will read this. Fingers crossed.
