I have actually looked into a campaign where everyone are part of the Pathfinder Society that focuses on the Explore part of "Explore, report, cooperate".

Part 1: Their job is to find a location within __ miles of a spot on the map that is inhabitable. The society is no longer content with just setting up lodges in existing cities, they want to own the entire cities, taxes can then support local explorations. After a certain amount of time, when the settlement is considered self-sufficient, they ensure that they are able to teleport in at a moment's notice, and move to the next area of the map.

Part 2: would be when they have proven the ability to make settlements work. They then get sent to settlements that are failing, and partially (poorly) built. They are tasked with turning around these settlements (Think Bar Rescue), while still having to support the settlements they created in part 1, and help with kingdom building.

(For parts 1+2, I would allow 2 "active" characters per person, and each settlement they can decide which of their characters they bring to the table, and upon getting orders to leave, they would have the option to leave their PC in that settlement in a position of power, but they would then have to stay in that settlement for the beginning of part 3)

Part 3: The PCs get into more direct confrontation with other groups. The Lumber Consortium and The Aspis Consortium have both been funding settlements on the fringes for decades. They have both political and physical power to rival the Pathfinders, and have butted heads before. What happens if they join forces, maybe even pulling in the Gnoll and Okeno Slavers that Pathfinders have been confronting. Several of the settlements from parts 1+2 come under attack at once. How do they hold up? Does the party get split to defend the people they have worked on building relationships with?

This allows for detailing multiple areas, Sarusan, Arcadia, Casmaron, Mwanagi... you could hit them all in one campaign, while still being more interconnected than Organized play is. Heck, if they get enough political clout, they could go try to start a settlement on Hermea with or without the dragon's blessing as a followup adventure.

Many years later...

Is there any published map or adventures or even real information available to us (free or for purchase) related to the Spire?

My current group wants to visit but I can't find anything beyond the 2-3 paragraphs saying Nex created it, no obvious entrances, filled with pocket dimensions, and monsters roam around outside.

Sure, I could create my own mega-dungeon to fill it with, but that seems dishonest and a great disservice to you and all your hard work; even if they aren't in a salable condition, myself and other Pathfinders would love to see what you have written so far.

You also mention that you have run many adventures there at cons, are these adventures able to be shared so current groups can explore them outside of meeting you at a con?

I think one of the side effects of Erik being the publisher is that he doesn't have much extra time. And Nex is his baby to write.

That being said, there are a few resources you might want to check out.

Pathfinder: Worldscapes comic series - this was written by Erik and is a look into one of the possible pocket dimensions within the tower.

Erik has been writing the spire as his yearly Paizocon game... I believe he writes one floor per paizocon. Unfortunately, they are raw and undeveloped/edited so are not available to the public. We've been hoping that when he is done, we get a book with the results. You might want to check for reports on his Paizocon games here on the boards for inspiration

This. Tales make me want to research further into the area that they take place in, causing me to read my other books. Since Tales has gone on hiatus, I have canceled 2 subscriptions, and plan on canceling 2 more this month as the interest the tales line instills in me hasn't been refreshed.

All but Zutha have official stats (even he might have stats, but I can't get to that book to check):

Spoiler:

Karzoug- Greed - RotRL book 6
Krune - Sloth - The Waking Rune PFS scenario
Alaznist - Wrath - Rise of new Thassilon
Sorshen - Lust - Rise of new Thassilon
Belimarius - Envy - THe City outside time
Xanderghul - Pride - Temple of the Peacock Spirit
Zutha - Gluttony - Runeplague (maybe, can't get to the book right now)

It seems like you're thinking about basicly the Current AP - Return of the Runelords - which book 6 just came out, and 4 of the books mentioned above are from

While they still contain spoilers, I would also suggest browsing the wiki page for the runelords to get a feel for how each is documented as portraying their sin.

Really, that was about the only thing I would change about the Tales line. I'd love to see something like an appendix in the back of each book, giving a character sheet for the main characters. Actual new content, like the stuff in the comic books would be great, but would probably be a big hassle, so I'm not asking for it.

But how cool would it be to see Radovan's sheet from Prince of Wolves, then see how it evolves through the series to Lord of Runes?

Its interesting to see the sheets people made for the Dave Gross contest a few years ago. it showed how we view the characters as different levels sometimes.

Radovan's Prince of Wolves stats were actually statted out in a Official article in Kobald Quarterly.

I could see "soiling" the ground 75 feet away (1 square per mite) with a large amount of bat guano or something. So it gets on the adventurers shoes and when they get within 60 feet the mites smell it. I don't think "smell" is a valid target for the movement part of the spell, and "air" would be too large, as a single target it would be all of the air in the hemisphere.

BuA Edition ** spoiler omitted **

My group actually broke this encounter at Gencon

Blood under Absalom spoiler:
Our wizard grabbed the barbarian and cast Dimension Door, appearing in the space directly above the head of the guy. Our GM had to go to the head table, which had the scenario's author sitting there and talk over how to handle it.

Blood Under Absalom was also the 2nd multi table special released. Since that time, they have released 6 more, and they tend to get better each year with more options for the PCs. It also means the scenarios are notoriously hard to prepare for, I think one of the last 2-3 years was over 70 pages of scenario. If you printed out stat blocks, that added another 150 pages to prepare. That's what happens when you ask for more options to be included.

For a PFS scenario I read the scenario an average of 4 times when preparing. (I read through straight through it, then reread it, noting what maps/minis/stat blocks I need to collect, then reread it with multiple highlighters, highlighting skill DCs one color, details I need to ensure I mention another, and Special changes to stat blocks of defensive abilities a third color. These read-throughs are normally done over a month prior to running the scenario. 3 nights before running the scenario, I do another read-through to make sure I have it fresh in my mind when running it.) This is possible because of the fact that PFS scenarios are on average 19-26 pages. This makes running a slot for one of these multi-table specials, on the other hand, about a 20-25 hour endeavor, as it takes multiple times reading through to memorize the hand gestures and other table control used to ensure all GMs are on the same page.

Most scenarios presume one path is taken, and then give a few alternate DCs for skill checks and say "If the PCs try something else, use the above DCs as guidelines to assure you are appropriately challenge the PCs"

All published adventures have to have some railroading. Otherwise you are giving setting books and not adventures. Organized play strives to provide the same basic story hundreds of times around the world.

In 10 years of running PFS (I ran a slot 0 for season 0), I've seen very few people every hit level 7 before deciding to create a new PC because the new rulebook came out and it has shiny stuff.. of the 161 players on my local warhorn, only 11 have level 7 characters. Some have played over 200 games, and don't have a level 7 character yet. I have seen several players with 100+ games played who don't have a level 5 yet.

I hate that many of the storylines start in the low levels and end in the high ones.... because I could never get a group together for the end of the storyline. We've run maybe 10% of the 7-11s.... but we have some players who have run out of 1-5 and 3-7, don't have a level 7 character, and there are currently no other characters in 5-9 tier...

I guess what I'm trying to say, is that each state/region/group has different needs to keep it going. Its hard to generalize what's "needed" based on just what your group is seeing. Looking at your data set for season 8 I would have said there are too many 7-11 and I would remove 2 and add them to 3-7. But that's just based on what I see in my community.

I think it really depends on what part and time period of NO history you are looking to portray. Bourbon street it would be mostly different location from historical murder capitol, might be different from the Voodoo... its one of those things that it's easier to take parts of several locations to create one new location than it is to steal a location whole-cloth.

Several of the themes in NO are also more likely to be fleshed out now in a post horror adventures environment than they were prior to horror adventures being published.

Personally anything more that 1/10 Humans/elves/dwarves/half-elves is too much. Half orcs I put in with halflings and gnomes at a level in between the humanoids and rarer races. I could see 1/6 of a set for these.

To be honest I want one set that has nothing with two legs in it. I've also fought on these boards for more non-evil cities with less than 5% core book races in Golarion, and the Globe of Golarion that was teased as a possibility if the Gazeteer sold well. So I guess I'm proponent of St Jude.

As far as the RPG industry is concerned, 2nd party has always referred to parties other than the owner, with a license that allows them to use the owner's IP. Paizo was considered and referred to as a 2nd party publisher for D&D when they were printing Dragon and Dungeon magazines, for example.

have flown across with magic, priests have walked on air, and
others have used flying mounts. Stranger methods include
giant slingshots or walking a tightrope, while some make
mighty leaps, convinced of their worthiness. Not all of these
methods are successful, and what worked for one person can
fail for another; some don’t make it across, and some do but

The early days of the blog, every product got the same treatment the starfinder core rulebook is: we would hear about backmatter articles in AP adventures months in advance, and those talking about them would be excited about the "dragon part of the dragon and dungeon in one product". When was the last time we had a blog about something in the backmatter of an AP?
March 29 some people may comment that doesn't even count, as it was an aside, and wasn't even to get people excited about backmatter. Icouldn't even tell you what was in the backmatter of any APs since reign of winter/mummies mask - as those were the last times there area a real blog entry on backmatter. I can still tell you the backmatter of each of the first 12 issues though, because they ALL had multiple blogs about their content.

When was the Last time a Pathfinder Chronicles (edit pathfinder campaign setting) product had a blog about them? Feb 24th

Player companion? March 17th

Can we have more of the hype that made the blog something I looked foreward to daily?

Do you have any suggestions to counter that?

Unfortunately, yes: "You can't summon an instrument too large to be held in two hands."
