I feel similar to DeathQuacker. Thre are a few photo albums ive seen this week of experimenting (including painting right onto Reaper bones, which worked better then I expected) It seems like it basicly removes the 'wash' step in painting, best results I've seen has been prime, Contrast, hi-light, detail.

I'm not a paizo employee, but as of paizocon a week ago, they had still not decided if free PDFs were continuing into PF2. At least that was the answer in the 'Question Marks' panel when it was asked. Maybe it was revealed in one of the other panels that know direction hasn't put out in audio form yet.

Latest playtest rules. Things weren't locked in enough for the final edition when they needed to start getting things in place for it.

actually, it was written with the printed playtest rules put out last gencon, without any of the updates - this was confirmed on Know Direction a few months ago

*casually alludes to the "Rabbit/Duck Hunting" schtick, while gesturing with a NERF! dart gun*

Greetings all, with the advent of 2nd edition on the Horizon, i decided to plunk some ill-used con'boons on some of my last PFS characters.
One such boons, is Fighting Off Corruption: Lycanthropy. This boons requires several things to waive the negative effect for a nominal bonus effect. One of the tasks is to defeat a Lycanthrope or Creature with the Shapechanger subtype with CR greater than my character's level.
So, i made an Agathion-blooded Aasimar Lunar Oracle who's being tested by his devoted god, Ashava with Lycanthropy, and has become a Hermit (archetype) because of it; until he's befriended by a Wolf whom he sees as a portent to overcome the 'disease.'

The thing is... i've already played in a few of the scenarios I know of that have either Lycanthropes or Shapechangers-
** spoiler omitted **
There may have been others that i never realized had what i'm hunting.

So, i'm looking for more scenarios that have lycanthropes or shapechangers; if it's mentioned in the blurb than all the better [i can't be blamed for specifically hunting scenarios ;P]. Otherwise, any scenario or module will due. The character is only lvl 2 current, so has time.

Likewise, he needs to seek the aide of a Witch or Druid to help cleanse the lycanthropy. so, that's a secondary mission.

Thanks much, this is my 20th PFS character and mostly my last.

several of the APs deal with them....not sure if they are in the parts of each book that are available, though.

Things players should know for rise of the runelords:
*There are ruins everywhere from ancient civilizations
*Where do Elves come from? Gnomes?
*Brief rundown of the gods and the fact that in Golarion all clerics require a patron god. If you don't want a patron god, that's what Oracles were designed for.

RotRL was written before much more than this was known, so there are plenty of spots for the characters to learn with the players any additional information, as the characters become familiar with the history of the world, so do the players.

It all dependant on how many minis we're talking about - I currently have about 20,000 minis that I'm organizing and preparing doubles for sale. I have 3 Ikea Billy bookcases, that I bought inexpensive drawer-pulls and Home depot shelves, and gave the shelves the ability to pull like a drawer without a lip. I've found I can fit about 3 wizkids sets per shelf. I don't expect this to be enough to store them all, but it sill allow me to organize most of them.

My big issue with the screw buckes and sterilte containers is that it places undo pressue on them, and I have about 50 minis that have had weapons snap, or have fallen off of bases because they were at the bottom of a pile.

I would be very wary about trying to make a kingdom in the Mwangi Expanse or the Storval Plateau. The temptation to write these areas off as savage lands ripe for conquest is...really not great. If the kingdom model of government worked for these areas and these cultures, they would have done it themselves.

Parts of Mwangi Expanse are thriving under a kingdom-like culture (read the Fireborn Novel for several examples)

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.

I'd like to cancel my Pathfinder Battles subscription. THe lack of new novels has caused my enthusiasm to lack in the last year or so, to the point I barley play and can no longer justify the expense of the minis.

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.

Really, Escrima sticks are closer to clubs than tonfa (in fact they are generally used for club self defense practice for lower belts). I'd give Escrima Sticks masterwork dan bong stats from ultimate equipment, since the only real difference is the cord on the Dan Bong, and the length.. both are used similarly.

Not sure if you have read the pirates novels, but one of the main characters is an astronomer and astrologer, so a lot of the constellations and their locations to planet orbits and such get detailed a bit more there.

I also think occult mysteries had information on a bunch of the costellations, including what they look like. There's even a community use picture found here from this blogpost

Hope that helps!

I'm at over 1300 products to download, and the hardddrive I was using for them just failed (more accuratly - my 2 year old grabbed it and threw it across the room, damaging the platters) . I know the ability to checkmark multiple downloads has been a often requested feature (this was the most recent post of over 30 threads I found requesting it). Is there any headway in this area, or am I going to have to click download over 27000 times to get my digital library set up again?

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.

I've sorted and stored my collection in a number of ways over the years. Easiest is in containers by type (Short races/Humanoids/Goblin family/dragons-reptiles/giants/etc).

Currently I am sorting my 25,000+ collection by set. I'm keeping one of each mini and am going to ebay the rest. The ones I am keeping are going on IKEA billy bookcases that I bought Drawer-pulls, and made the lower shelves able to be pulled out. I can fit about 300 minis per shelf, and just got a label maker for christmas to document where each set is at a glance. Now I'm up to 34 complete sets, not counting incomplete sets and promos, I'm hoping that a complete bookcase will be enough.

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.
