I'd like to see more minis that aren't holding weapons.

I'd like to toss in my vote for including towsfolk of various sorts.

If the adventure path writers could find ways to include different townsfolk as meaningful parts of encounters it would increase our chance of getting them.

The main reason I find this item disappointing is that I've seen it before. (Not 100% exact, but more than close enough)

In the module Of Sound Mind published by Firey Dragon and writen by Kevin "Piratecat" Kulp, you can pry the eyes out of the dragon statue and they do the same thing.

There's no way to know if the creator of this entry ever read that module (produced for D&D3e), though it reminded me immediately of the module.

Hi Jim,

I know there's not much else you can do but take my word for it, but I have never even heard of that Module before (and truth be told I haven't heard of the Company either - I hope I didn't make an "OMG you haven't heard of Fiery Dragon, we shun you now" confession there).

I have only been back playing D&D for about 3-4 years now after a lengthy break during 2e. I skipped 3.0 entirely and came back for the (what I didn't know then) twilight of 3.5.

Prior to the start of Pathfinder I had no experience with 3PP D&D in any way. This comunity has opened my eyes to other possibilies beyond Wizards of the Chequebook. And I now ahave a moderately healthy collection of 3PP 3.5 products, with thanks greatly to Paizo's and their 3.5 going out of business sales.

I feel a bit bummed now, I thought I'd tapped something new...

Craig, you've got no reason to feel bummed about it. Great ideas strike people vast distances apart with no connection all the time. There are many examples throughout history.

I recommend trying to get your hands on a copy of the module since it is great fun to run and can easily be reworked for Pathfinder. Besides, now that you know you share some creative focus with another excelent designer you'll likely want to see what else you have in common! :)

Looking forward to your next submission, villains are always a fun topic. Good Luck!

Jim

Aura Faint Evocation; CL 3rd

Slot –; Price 1,000gp; Weight
DESCRIPTION
At first glance this gem appears to be nothing more than a red garnet. Upon closer inspection however, a tiny sunburst sigil can be seen etched onto its leading facet.
Anyone holding a Dazzler can use it to cast flare at will as a Swift Action.
They can also be attached to a Shield by a skilled Armorsmith (DC 15 Craft check).
Shield activation is the same as if it were held. Multiple Dazzlers can be affixed to a Shield as long as a Craft check is made for each. If a check is failed by more than 5 there is a 50% chance the Dazzler is ruined.
Additional Dazzlers can be activated from a Shield in the same round, but activating more than two Dazzlers in such a way becomes a Standard Action. For each additional Dazzler activated, the -1 penalty from each Dazzled Condition stacks (although the duration remains the same).
The number of Dazzlers that can be attached to a Shield are as follows: Buckler/Klar 2; Light Shield 4; Heavy Shield 6; Tower Shield 10.
CONSTRUCTION
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, flare; Cost 500gp

Please make issue #12 (if it is the final one of the current adventure path) my last issue.

I'm sorry I have to drop my sub. Love the books, but finances are finances. I have some hefty bills coming due.

Thanks,

Jim Richmond

It was in issue #321.

Awesome, thanks!


I'm working on some pocket dimensions for one of my parties to pass through briefly and wanted to work up a section of the Radiant Plane using the info from the Dragon article.

Anyone know the issue #?

Thanks!

This stuff is hilarious. I'm hooked, and I've emailed some other folks about these too.


It is sad that I am unable to cast a sixth vote.

My five with the honorable mention going to the one that would be sixth:

Yithnai

Bereket
Carnamach

Hororable Mention - Kyristania


Just wanted to drop a quick line to the fine folks in customer service to have them check on my shipment for the third issue.

"A package containing 1 item from Paizo Order #826794 is expected to ship from the Paizo warehouse by Monday, November 5 via Pathfinder Standard Shipping, estimated 3 to 10 business days in transit."

It has not yet turned up. Please let me know if you determine what happened.

Thanks!
Jim


Hey Cosmo,

I'm missing 357 also. Did a bunch just not get shipped out correctly?

Thanks,
Jim

Erol Otus did the cover; a fighter was walking into a cavern via a bizarre bridge, where a smiling short wizard or jester was gesturing to the side of the cave---where this colossal lovecraftian drooling thing was waiting.
Aaaaah....good times. (they actually kinda sucked, but everything seems better in memory).

I'm not fishing for "grognard props." Just remembering.

You'll eat this bowl of Grognard Props and you'll like it! Or no Kobold Eyescream for you!

:P

For me it was issue #57 with the Traveller adventure inside and a cover showing the characters from it being chased by a psionic giant glowing energy wasp.

The oldest issue I own is #2. I went on a back-issue hunt once I got hooked.

Ok, now I'm wondering if I remember it wrong ... Wandering Trees was definitely one of my favorite things from back then. Have to dig out the Dragon Archive to see which issue I really did get first.

OOPS! My first issue was #59. It wasn't until the big rush of back-issues that I got my hands on #57 and fell in love with Wandering Trees. Never got to play it, but the concept still seems interesting to me.

Would it be possible to send emails to the artist of images we'd like to have on item cards?

I'm always coming up with ideas for what items would look like, and lacking any true artistic talent find it very tough to get the images from my mind's eye to paper or canvas.

I've recently ordered a bunch of item cards which will ship out to me once Dragon's Hoard comes in, and I've been reading up on the cards during the wait.

Here's what I'm realizing ... I'll be needing more of Gear 1 and would definitely buy Gear 2 if offered.

Once my finances calm down a little more I'll be placing another order. These things will be a great addition to my game.


Love the curio set idea and the clothing set idea. We could also use lots of books for those discovered libraries.


I'm not quite sure if this is the correct board for posting these thoughts so please forgive me in advance for any faux pas.

I've been reading through a lot of discussion on several message boards (here and elsewhere) since the announcement of WoTC taking back the Dungeon & Dragon magazine rights. Here's what I'm noticing and hope you good folks at Paizo are giving it some serious thought ...

There seems to be a growing call for a replacement for Dungeon Magazine.

Requests for Ptolus modules, subscriptions to Game Mastery modules, consideration of adding these kinds of things into Pathfinder along with the adventure path goodies, instead of letting it be a narrow focus product, are building up.

Even with the launch date for Pathfinder being too close to alter it immediately into what the fans are clamouring for, please, please consider widening its scope to make it a full scale replacement for Dungeon.

Following up on this topic ...

Although I have yet to buy the minis, I did just drop a decent sized order for GameMastery stuff, etc, on you folks.

So ... any further word on this great idea for Ptolus adventures?

Eric and company,

Count me in as someone willing to SUBSCRIBE to a series of Ptolus modules.

Something like your Game Mastery modules or even better, including them in Pathfinder (assuming you're not limited by some sort of agreement with WoTC on the matter).

I might or might not be ordering the minis (have tons of pre-painted ones and I am lousy at painting), although if I do order some Ptolus minis I might also hire a friend to paint them.

Thanks,

Jim R.
