"Warstein ale you say!"
Tall man holding the figurehead with his right hand takes one of the mugs and takes a long sip.
"That's what I'm talking about!" He drinks bottoms up and says "This is almost perfect, it only needs a hint of juniper berries."
Somebody from the back yells "Who let the gnomes out?!"
A small ragtag bunch of weary and beaten dark travelers carrying a figurehead arrive to the city at dusk.
"Is this the place they told us?" one asks and takes a long drink from his waterskin. "It looks just like this southerner piss they call beer tastes!"
"Now, now brother. Give them softies a chance, at least it looks like there is law and order in this town. I'm sure we can find a place in here to brew some real sahti soon enough. Lets get rooms from that inn over there and seek some warm company for the night!"
"What's this place called anyway?"
Thank you all. We feel like we are ready for the big bang on third quarter. I'm also ready to teach you all the important things in finnish too, in case you haven't attended paizocon already :) My favorite thing in paizocon has been giving some nice taste of nordic music to our favorite publisher Erik ;)

Greetings fellow goblins!
Aseveljet is a Finnish speaking gaming community with some 1400 members originally found by friends to play EVE Online together. Today we play mainly pvp games like WoT, WT, MWO, ARMA, Rust but also games like TESO, Warframe and so on. If you are a Finnish gamer (at least 18 years old) who wants to play PFO (or any other game like Civ or minecraft) with a friendly bunch, visit our website aseveljet.net and make an application in our forums. We often have English speaking guests also playing with us so you all are welcome to visit us.
In PFO it seems like we are not getting our own settlement (unless we get a surge of new members soon™... ) so as a plan B we are looking for a home now. We have been contacted by few friendly diplomats and we have started internal discussions about our imminent plans. Our gaming history puts us strongly on the pvp side (we even have had good success on competitive play on WoT and MWO) even though we have our own share of crafter/harvester enthusiasts and pve players. We have a zero tolerance for griefing or rules bending among our members but otherwise we consider ourselves pretty laid back and value irl time and commitments over virtual ones.
Most of our present PFO backers want to focus on various mercenary actions so I hope we can find a big brother we can help to grow. We also want to keep trustworthy and warm diplomatic relationships to as many groups and guilds as possible and reasonable. We can provide some odd hour protection (GMT +2/+3) and hopefully steadily growing group to support PFO community. We still have high hopes to establish our own settlement some time in the future.
We wish you all luck in your endeavours in PFO and hope to be part of a great community in the River Kingdoms among fierce (but hopelessly crazy) goblin brothers and sisters!

Is it totally bad idea (and dead horse) that when you lose reputation (or maybe also alignment) you also lose max reputation (or alignment) that is forever lost. For example if you lose 50 rep you also lose 5 max rep or something like that. Or maybe this max value lost is also possible to get back somehow if its too harsh.
are you thinking of a situation that Nihimon covered few posts above:
"It's worth reminding everyone again that Ryan has made it clear you will never get a Flag accidentally. There will be some way that you will acknowledge to the system that you're doing this act knowingly, fully aware that you're going to get Flagged for it."

Fiendish and divine could be just some plastic clip (like stands but smaller) attached to the pawn. Actually Paizo could do a whole set of different kind of clips to add to pawns for spells/buffs/conditions and so on.
PvP to me seems dangerous, scary, and difficult... Yay!!! Having never truly played a Pvp MMO before, it feels like the safety net has been taken away from my tightrope act. My experience with other "theme park" rides has been very short due to one major factor. The lack of fear. Yes fear... If your Character is killed with no major concinquence attached, then there is no real emotional connection to that virtual world, just a little inconvenience.
That's right. I will always remember my first pvp fight (Darkfall and I died but died feeling extremely excited) but can't remember any of the many many first pve fights in numerous theme parks.
I'll certainly hold PFO no ill will, in either case, but when I'm hungry, I want to eat, so if I have to choose between Mcdonald's now or a fine steak restaurant tomorrow, I'll have a Big Mac, please.
But You'll be hungry tomorrow too :) Those who really want to play will wait for the invite, as will I. Those who wont wait are more prone to have less interest altogether and stop playing sooner than those willing to wait for their turn.

fun update on the kickstarter main page ;) Now to work on the stretch goals!
Great news Nicolas! The only thing I'm sad about is that I can't attend Paizocon this year, have been there twice but the tickets from Finland for 2 kill me (wife or cousin must be attended). So good to hear that you are good again and you can keep my RC money even if it doesn't get finished. Be well!
Lou, thank you again!
Would it be possible to keep these first seven months as some kind of paid beta test? After seven months game starts fresh (and everybody knows that from the beginnig) but beta testers have the knowledge they have gathered playing the beta. I know I would pay even for that. Or maybe you could give some perks to beta testers depending on their time in beta and/or feedback/bug reports given. This way only the real hardcore fans wanted to participate from the beginning and those hurting their feelings if not let in from the beginning would have better chance to get in from the (new fresh) start.
In MapTool you select Background layer and just drag and drop jpeg to green area. CTRL+ALT+ENTER switch to full screen mode.
Hope it helps.

I consider this a little tasteless. When you consider also that he asked to get the project earlier but that didn't happen. Maybe it is just because I'm not from US and don't get your business culture. Well, Paizonites don't comment on wizards in that light so maybe this is not that common. Probably I'm just too thin-skinned but that video made me an ex-customer.

Not at the maptool right now but at least you have to choose individual views when starting server, define vision and ownership(for player) in token properties. Also make sure that token is PC (not NPC), add light source to token or any object (right mouse or properties I think) close to token. Could be something else too but cant remember...
Thats good point but not allowed at the moment (except for zombies and other slow combatants (which is weird...), plausible house rule anyway.
Rhino Charge doesn't need to be better. Given attack multipliers and rake attacks, it's good enough as it is!
I think rhino charge needs a little more something for average adventurer if charge is allowed to be readied.
PRD: Magic Item Creation says about Creating Potions:"Spells with a range of personal cannot be made into potions."
you are welcome ;)
