Jeremy here. I wrote several of the animals for the Guide. I'm happy to answer questions as well. There are so many great critters, plants, and other stuff in the Field Guide, I can't wait to hear what people make of it.

Thank you!

Having to cut back on spending a little, so I need to cancel my Starfinder Adventure Path and Starfinder Roleplaying Game subscriptions. Thank you.

Will get my character updated today but wanted to check in. I've played Cries from the Drift with a different character but will be GMing it for a RL group March 3rd and crediting this character.

I'm sorry to hear it is closing down, if that proves to be the case. I'd already started working on an entry.

I'm happy to help with a 3PP effort if y'all need it.

Best of luck to everyone. All the items I've seen this weekend could be in the top 32, so even if you don't make it, know you crafted a great item.

And congrats to every single item of my workshop friends. All of you made it through 5 culls. Not too shabby!

I'll add my voice to the condolences for the culled and encouragements to stay for the critique thread. I thought my submission was really solid last year, but learned so much about making it better in the critiques.

After seeing so many good items, I really wish I'd focused on something unique at a lower price point. It is going to be really tough to stand out in this crowd.

If I can't afford the item until 15th level, I probably won't vote on it, even if it does a huge amount of base damage before multiplying other bonuses like strength.

That said, this other item is really cheap but super neat, even if the use is kinda niche. I think it's author is the author of Springheart from last year.

It is entirely possible. I can't confirm or deny anything though.

I know one of the things that makes Setting books interesting to me are the story hooks given to various places and factions. I see something like the Valley of the Birthing Death (Land of the Linnorm Kings) or Skywatch (Brevoy - Inner Sea World Guide) and can't help but think of the stories hinted at in the description.

Do you as authors have moments like that with the setting, or do you prefer to do all your world building on your own?


Pathfinder Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Inspired by Winter Witch, but a question for everyone:
How do you deal with power creep?

Specifically, there is a tendency for characters in continuing series to grow in power (as they overcome the core conflict in each tale) to the point where it eventually becomes difficult to significantly challenge them. Especially in a shared setting series like Pathfinder Tales where real world threatening events are going to have repercussions that are outside of the scope of the novel line.

With all this talk of sharing/borrowing each others characters, would you be interested in a Thieves' World style anthology set in Absalom where you liberally used each others characters? It probably couldn't work with established protagonists from novels, but if they were characters who were only used in the anthologies, it wouldn't interfere with plots for novels.

I know I'd be super excited about something like that, more so than a Rashomon-style story.

This would be awesome. Thieves World was a personal favorite back in the day. Even if there was only one book of collected shared city stories a Thieves World style book for Golarion would be fantastic.

I would donate to this Kickstarter.

What are some of your favorite authors?

As with so many boys of my generation, Zelazny was the galvanizing figure for me. Tolkien, Howard, Bradbury, Stewart, Leiber, LeGuin, and McKillip were also instrumental in shifting my primary affections from SF to fantasy. They aren't exactly fantasies, but the historical novels of Mary Renault tickle the same spot for me.

For contemporary fantasy, there's no one I admire or enjoy more than George R.R. Martin. I finally caught up on Joe Abercrombie's trilogy and love his writing, although I wish he'd given us a more conclusive conclusion.

The single book I'd most recommend to lovers of near-fantasy is Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

My "guilty pleasures" outside of fantasy include Arturo Pérez-Reverte, Alan Furst, and Michael Connolly. Not that I feel the least bit guilty.

I'm woefully behind on current fantasy, but I've recently begun Max Gladstone's series on audio. It's outstanding.

Red Country is the real capstone for the Abercrombie trilogy. And a spaghetti western fantasy story, if you can belive that.

Also, this is the best thread ever!

Great story, and interesting to have elves cast as the villains for once!

Thanks!

The Fey template never even occured to me. Nice! I like the idea of the sending usage actually passing the ring off to the recipient too. I had originally planned for the ring to be an actual fey animal - one with a life cycle that depended on mortal tragedy to reproduce (the butterfly form only returns to the First World to mate and lay eggs after the sending is used), but that is a lot of back info to try to cram into a ring, so I just hinted at it. The revision makes for a much stronger item.

GM_Solspiral While the story is tempting, I'd honestly like to your take on redesigning Springheart. Seeing a more experienced hand tackle the mechanics would be helpful, if you get a chance.

Thanks for the review on Springheart! You aren't the only one to mention the mechanical failings. Definitely something to keep in mind for the future.

Staff of the Beast Within

I liked and voted for that ML. It had some problems (lack of Rage requirement, the question of what you are going to do with the staff once you've activated anything but Beast Shape 2 and need to get into melee combat) but had great flavor and I liked the Rage rounds recharge idea.

You were spot on about that last sentence Brigg. I must have revised it six or seven times, but your revision is the wording I prefer.

Looking forward to what you come up with!

Springheart:

Aura weak transmutation, moderate evocation; CL 7th
Slot ring Price 850 gp
Description
Occasionally given as a token of affection by fey creatures, Springheart appears to be a dull green caterpillar tightly curled up in a spiral. When placed into the palm of a hand it uncurls, crawls to a free finger, and encircles it. After a few moments it brightens to a lustrous green and gold color. Springheart provides the wearer with 1 temporary hit point, replenished each morning at dawn. On command it begins a 2 round process - on the first round it uncurls, climbs to the end of a finger, and quickly wraps itself in a cocoon; on the next round it bursts forth as an incorporeal butterfly that departs to carry a message to a specific individual as Sending (but without a chance to fail if the recipient is on another plane.) The cocoon then crumbles to dust and Springheart is destroyed, while the incorporeal butterfly returns to the First World after delivering the message.

If the wearer should die without having used the Sending power, one round afterward Springheart begins the process on its own, taking the sad tidings to the former wearer's dearest loved one.

*I like the inspiration behind this item and the attempt to go for the low-cost item

*There are formatting issues, and a one-shot SiaC like this doesn't fit for a ring (additionally, it's underpriced for a one-use SiaC sending without even taking into account the faster casting time (or the virtue)).

*Good mojo, but not on the execution. I'd like to see what you come up with next year. Reject.

Thanks to Thomas, Mark, James, MechaPoet, and Petty Alchemy!

I'll definitely work on my rules-fu and be back next year.

I was fond of Rondelero's Kiss myself. Strong visuals and an interesting play style mechanic.

Also, thanks for the praise on Springheart. Looking at the winners I can see I'll need to bring something stronger mechanically next year, but at least someone liked it.
