I'm planning on using it once Worldspinner is fully up and running. I'll let you know how it goes.

What sort if upfront work?
You have to enter in any information you want available. So, I entered in all of the data about Diamond Lake and the encounters from The Whispering Cairn. A bunch of copy/paste and editing to decide what is player knowledge and not just GM info.
You can also link Hero Lab portfolios in it for encounters.
It is a great tool, and once you have the data in it, It is nice to use. Having things hyperlinked is a great help while running, and being able to show players info when they learn it is very useful. There are a ton of features that I'm still learning at this point, but it is worth the money to me.

Any thoughts on this product from Herolab?
I enjoy using it. It's quite a bit of upfront work to get data into it, but once it's in it is nice to have.
I used it yesterday during a meeting while running Age of Worms. First time I had a separate player's screen active and it came in handy multiple times.
Also, let me add that I do not use the Cloud portion on the program, so I can't really comment on that part.
Hopefully they eventually get together with some 3PP to provide some adventures/settings with all of the data entered and linked.

I backed this one. Game world and three maps are too good to pass up. I'm looking forward to your Dragons! content for this as well Mr. Webb!
Great! Thanks for the advice and info!
I'm trying to decide if the Kingmaker AP is right for the group I am GMing. I have one player who LOVES the role-playing aspect of the game, and the other who is mostly into the hack and slash part.
Kingmaker seems like a great AP for the first player. He loves getting into the details, and kingdom building would be right up his alley. The other player has no real desire to be any type of leader, and prefers the 'story driven/linear' style play.
Is there a place for a person who plays non-leader, hack and slash style characters in the Kingmaker AP? Has anyone else had any experience with this type of player/character in this Adventure Path?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I don't want to buy the entire AP just to find out one of my players would be bored to tears. :)

I just made a 1st level fighter, checked the Second Darkness box under the Adventure Paths, and was able to choose the Pickaxe with no problem. Hope this helps.
I just looked it up. Looks like it is on Route 19/Perry Highway, closer to Wexford.
I think Kingmaker is going to be the next path on our list, but as often as we can play, it's still at least a year or two away.
There seems to be a problem with any of the user added content referencing 'SOURCE'. It's on their message board.Link

It's happening to my Bestiary as well, but it doesn't seem to be as bad as the Campaign setting. Maybe because it's newer. I brought it up a while back in the CS product posts, but no one ever said anything about it happening to them, so I thought maybe I just got a bad copy.
There is a difference between sitting beside a cliff, and jumping over it. Jumping over a pit that is two feet deep has no true repercussions if you fail. 200 feet? serious repercussions. Who's to say that thought of falling wouldn't get into the character's head.
Think of it like this, sinking a five foot putt in golf isn't too hard. Sinking a five foot putt to win the Masters with Tiger woods standing on the green waiting would be serious pressure. It's the same act, just a different amount of pressure.
no problem, looking forward to it!
If you like the class, do us a favor and take a second to place up a review of it at Paizo.com so othere people might see it. The reviews of the products are very important to publisher and manufactures. Ie helps get the word out on our products. Thanks for your support of LPJ Design.
Consider it done.
can anyone tell me a bit about the class?
I just purchased it a little bit ago. After reading, I think it is a really well thought out, balanced class. I think it is a good cross between a rogue and a gymnast.
You keep a few of the rogue abilites, but add in some really good movement based abilities in place of lost rogue ones. Thief Acrobat talents make the class really customizable as well.
The class itself is a 20 level based class, but has prereqs in case you want to use it as a prestige class.
I haven't had a chance to make any characters quite yet, but on the surface it seems like a really fun class to play. For the price, I think it is well worth the money.
Papa.DRB, this is from the main webpage for TOS:
1 The Only Sheet is created using Microsoft Excel 2003 on Windows. It may not work on older versions of Excel or non-Windows systems. It is NOT compatible with other spreadsheets applications. TOS+ REQUIRES the very latest Excel service pack from Microsoft!
Hope this helps!
I used the original TOS a couple of years ago, and just recently signed up for the TOS+ because of the support for 'the new role playing game'.
It's worth every penny. Very easy to use. Because of the design, you can add in custom equipment, weapons, feats, just about anything. The support on the website forums is also top notch.
I wanted to throw an idea to the Powers That Be at Paizo, and this seemed like the best avenue to do so.
I don't know about anyone else, but after the first two previews for the Beta release, I'm ready to read and play. I pre-ordered the book about a month ago or so, and I can't wait to have it in my hands...
However, I would REALLY like to read it NOW! So, I just want to let you guys know, you may feel free to run my order through now, and I'll be more than happy to pay and wait patiently until the actual book arrives, but let me download the PDF NOW!!!! :)
Just a thought...
I know I've gone off and on for many years now. Sometimes as short as a couple of months, my longest break was 6 years. A couple of times it was a lack of a group. The group I am DM'ing now just played a couple of weeks ago for the first time since January.
I can't tell you how many times over the past 20+ years I've lost interest in either playing or DM'ing, or both.
Axcalibar, are you burned out from running a game, playing in one, or just the game itself? How did your last meeting go? What are the other players up to? Answering those would start to lead you to exactly why you don't have the motivation to get things moving again.
Maybe I could start a Dear JTStorm type of column??? :-) Just kidding...
