I have a newer player as a wizard in a converted RotRL game, and she just wants to get new spells. She went and asked an NPC wizard if he could teach her any healing spells. The magical essences and how they intersected with the traditions made for a really solid way to explain a mechanical limitation in fiction. Being able to tell a player "No, because we wizards use the mental and material essence and healing is largely of the vital essence" felt like a much more satisfying thing than just saying "it's not on your spell list."

It also made for an interesting avenue to explain multiclassing in fiction a bit, and the wizard has already started studying up on Sheylyn with the intention to take the cleric dedication at some point.

It's all just pretty neat. I hope the essences get worked into future publications, even if it is just setting books.

Thanks for sharing CM! I dig the idea as well.

Hey Elorebaen, it should be the next item in the ACG sub for everyone currently subscribed and everyone that subscribes between now and it's release in May.

Thanks Jeff!

ok rant time :)

I so seriously hate item crafting. It introduces an needless sense of wasteful consumerism and lack of respect for magic into the game. Sure its fantasy, but in real life items such as masterwork swords were rare and passed down through the generations. You didn't go to Swords-R-Us to get a wonderful masterwork sword of the week. I want to play a game of high adventure and thrilling excitement... not merchants and ledgers. UGGGGGGGGGGGGG

hehe rant over :)

Item Crafting is one of those areas that a GM should think about seriously PRIOR to starting a campaign.

With regard to CC, I really think you should just remove it as PC option.

In general, I think removing Item Crafting as a PC, almost always leads to a more interesting gameplay.

"also giving GMs better tools to tell the stories they want to tell"

Sounds like an admirable goal to me, and one just about every RPG system tries to provide, because GMs have the lion's share of the work when it comes to playing RPGs.

Having "better tools" to create the campaigns that my players play in sounds awesome!

As to the OPs specific comments, they sound a bit uncharitable to me.

But, it is the case that there are all kinds of GMs, just as there are all kinds of players. I STRONGLY suggest every GM and every player carefully consider the group that they play with, and the campaigns they agree to be involved in.

Not confused about the reason for it at all, I just don't think that the Ritual treatment accomplishes what it set out to do to replace that 1e summoning ability.

2e Rituals look a lot like 1e rituals, and I NEVER felt like the reason was to "replace that 1e summoning ability."

Rituals are their own "thing" in 1e (and in 2e from what i can tell).

But yeah, I personally like rituals for the main reason for them: Flavor and allowing GM control powerful effects and opening the possibility of doing magical things without it just being "casting a spell".

These are basically my thoughts with regard to Rituals. Often, I will work with the various components of a ritual, and work them more deeply into the story, and also any other sort of "massaging" for dramatic effect. But, that is really the job of the DM for everything, I suppose :)

It is useful to have the mechanical examples to assist the story I am trying to tell. They are a tool I am happy to have in the DM toolbox.

I have heard of Kobold Press but don't know much about them. Are they changing(updating?) Pathfinder like Pathfinder did for D&D? Or do they just put out adventure paths? Both? Are their books PFS legal?

Check out their website. Look who is writing for them, check out the products they've made, etc. You will quickly get a good sense for the quality and depth of those folks.

They offer adventures, playing advice, and rules supplements - some of the best around.

re: PFS legal
No.

You guys are always a breath of fresh air, a positive inducing blast of energy to the game. After reading these blogs I'm always left with a hunger for more, and to truly experience the game at its fullest. Thanks for the amazing attitude towards the new system. I stopped reading everything related to the playtest, the amount of negativity is something that really ruins the experience for me, but after reading this, I'm ready for more. Thanks, guys, you re a shining beacon, and a great example of how to play and how to face this amazing game. I will resume supporting you as soon as I can... xD Long live the Order

These are my thoughts as well when it comes to OAD. Long live the Order, indeed!

As mentioned up-thread, Legendary Games might be able to do an “Ultimate Kingdoms” compilation next year, but there’s still at least one (possibly more) book in the pipeline (Ultimate Armies, I’m looking at you) and other important projects that Jason has to manage, so the best answer right now is “maaaaaaaaaaybe”.

Thanks for the tip, Ben!

Great stuff! I have to say the 3PPers for PFRPG are some of THE best. Amazing stuff! KP is at the top of that list.

Instead, we get told to go along with the change or "So long and thanks for all the fish!"

To be fair, I have not seen that message from ANYONE at Paizo. Quite the contrary, actually. Moreover the fact they are going to keep any 1.0 books in print, is pretty cool.

Sounds to me like, you, perhaps are the one saying, "So long ...", which is fine, but let's not get too far out.

I just take issue with pandering to those who don't take the time to really learn the game and making it shallower for those of us who enjoy it.

Well, you’re in luck, I have seen nothing about creating monsters or NPCs that make the game “shallow”. One can develop them to their heart’s content. The emphasis seems to be on your vision of the monster/NPC in question, as opposed to making the vision fit a PC paradigm that it didn’t quite fit into anyway.

I would be surprised to see any 1E product to be actually printed after 2E. As pocket editions continue to move down the product line and away from the CRB, I would expect their sales to diminish just like the original making investing in more 1E product unlikely. The project would have to be very profitable for them to invest in a system they no longer produce and which is in direct competition to the new game. But, I guess we’ll see

They are as ready as they can be. This is their livelihoods we are talking about. I think people forget that.

Of course it is still risky, but NO ONE is simply going to throw away their livelihood. Most people take that VERY seriously, and when you have a small company, where people depend on you for their paychecks, you don't make risky decisions lightly.
