I'd like a General Leo from FFVI type character. Honorable soldier who finally sees the straw that breaks the camel's back and decides to stand up to his former superiors.

And then I'll come up with 20 more ideas in the next year and end up going with 20 because of an active imagination amd poor memory.

Can we move the anti-colonialism into its own thread? I almost forgot which thread this is.

In the Giantslayer thread, Rob mentioned he is all about an Orc vs. Dwarves AP, I would love to have had this in Feb to go with the release of the last Hobbit, but I will take it later, too!

Lastwall Vs. Any or all of the enemies around them.

Brevoy! I'd love to get a GoT style political intrigue and crazy sandbox fight for control

Taldor reclaiming their former glory

Xanderghul!

Nirmathus vs Molthune

Andoran vs Cheliax

Someone linked the lands of the Linnorn Kings to this really amazing story I wanted to see...

For the Designers who are reading, but not commenting on this thread, I was really taken back by the archetypes in the book. There are so many different concepts people have clamored for on the forum that I saw solutions presented for.

It really renewed my appreciation for the dedication you all have for your craft. Thank you guys for all your hard work!

The spontaneous Magus is all Cha based with the Bard spell progression. It changes everything to Cha based and gives a Arcane Pool ability that puts you in a temporary trance required to use your spell combat. It's pretty crazy.

They made a Cleric Archetype that is a priestly type people were asking for.

The Adept/Expert is called the Dabbler. They gain the ability to customize their spell list a little bit, just like how expert customizes their skill list. The Aristocrat/Warrior is called the Warlord, and they focus on the sort of aristocratic style of "fair" combat and lording over strongholds of lower level warriors. Aomidori, the iconic warlord, went berserk after her kingdom was destroyed by the rising successor state of Lingshen poisoning their water supply. She was only saved when Kess and Reiko convinced her not to attack the army of Lingshen singlehandedly but instead to focus her anger and become an adventurer with them.

You, sir, have won the internet this day.

In any case, again... we'll be announcing this one at Gen Con. Only a few weeks away!

I was thinking the same thing!

I considered stirring the pot a bit to see what else bubbled up, but I didn't want to be unnecessarily cruel. :)

But this is the Internet, its appetite for unnecessary cruelty is infinite:)
That may be, but I'm tired of that old paradigm. :)

Oh, in that case, I'm a huge fan of the unnecesarily nice paradigm! You should go with that one!

Aw, I was hoping to meet the Runelord of Pride...

I'd like to see Taldor regain its glory, an urban AP like Absalom... Hmm...

I don't know!!!

Given that the Kingdom of Pride (I don't recall the actual name at the moment) occupied those lands currently comprised of the Lands of the Linnorm Kings & Fafnir is mentioned as being an adviser to Xanderghul, the odds are good that if/when there is a Lands of the Linnorm Kings AP, it may very well be the next Runelords AP as well.

That's awesome, I want that AP!

When I heard there were Troops in this, I grabbed it up and I think Wayfinder found a new fan. I've been a purist in my RPGs, but I love the fan created stat blocks.

Try Lower AC and higher Constitution/HP so your GM actually enjoys attacking you! I ignore the group I GM's turtle all the time. Then he gets mad at the Witch.

Have you tried out the Fire Emblem games? Different take on the Tactical RPG.

That is awesome, I love it, it definitely makes him feel more devious and satisfying. The stages of battle remind me of RPGs and I know my Final Fantasy loving group will appreciate it.

How did you handle Time Stop? Are the PCs aware of it, like they're frozen, does it happen without their knowledge, or some other way?

Now that I think of it, this would be a much better archetype for the Skald.

Does this mean Link from Legend of Zelda is part of the inspiration? ...Is there going to be one with a Fairy Familiar?

When I saw the Destined Bloodline... totally thought of Richard from Sword of Truth. I really like how versitile Destined makes the class though, lets you have all the features without any heavy flavoring.

We just need a bunch of maps that connect with this, that way we can play kneeling on the mats as our characters walk around the fort/city.

So I'm a team kinda guy. I've always liked small elite squads, probably what drew me to tabletop. So, I love the different orders of knights, organizations and guilds Paizo has presented in Golarion.

I'm really interested in some groups other players have created in their home games, whether you're a GM who made one to hassle their players or a player who used Leadership to found a group for a certain cause.

In Wrath of the Righteous, I worked with my GM to create a commando group named Vigilance. With the assistance of much divine and arcane magic, they had managed to have a fort within the Worldwound named Bastion, which was destroyed and wiped out all the members prior to the campaign, except my character of course. I drew inspiration from the Grey Wardens of Dragonage, the Night's Watch of Game of Thrones/A Song of Fire and Ice, military special forces and some Arthurian Legend for their brotherhood. Now, during the campaign, my Slayer is working to rebuild them to help close the Worldwound for good. I wrote up a Google Doc all about their organization including a brief history and how they operate.

A few other employees help with the details now and then, particularly Wes, but also Sutter and Erik, but the primary and initial brainstorming of the plot seeds are usually me or Rob.

I outlined and started Runelords, Crimson Throne, Second Darkness, Kingmaker, Serpent's Skull, Jade Regent, Shattered Star, Wrath of the Righteous, and Iron Gods.

Rob did Skull & Shackles and Reign of Winter and Mummy's Mask.

Wes did Carrion Crown.

I feel like I'm forgetting one... maybe it's just the 3 that we haven't announced that we know what they are...

Could you remind me what those last 3 are?

Point. But let's have a look at the actual code:

• Peace is death. Conflict is life. I will not let anyone take the easy way out.
• Battle defines me. Without battle I am empty. I make my purpose with blade and brand.
• I will bathe in blood and breathe in iron. Where there is no conflict, I will create it. Where there are skirmishes, I will make war.
• The sword is the answer to any question.
• If there is peace ahead of me, I leave struggle in my wake.
• Poison is for the weak. Ambush is for the cowardly. Plague is a consequence of slaughter.
• Aggression is not foolishness. If I cannot stand against a foe, I will find another, and mark the first for later.

Seriously, anyone striving to hold to that code, particularly the first, third, fourth, and fifth points, has to be stopped. This is a person who has sworn to force everyone around him/her to solve all problems and conflicts with violence, and to create problems and conflicts where none exist. Does this sound like someone who could walk through a city or even a small town without either doing horrible evil or falling out of grace with Gorum?

That sounds like a really frickin' awesome BBEG monologue.

Anyone else think Mr. Reynolds has been playing a good bit of Assassin's Creed lately after the last two outfits?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I'd kinda argue that the classes are approximations of someone's abilities and don't ncessarily inform the entire background of a character. Or else you would have to roll everyone who has a banner and a horse as a Cavalier.

I'm kinda a fan of the Armored Hulk for the Mountain. He can move a bit faster in fullplate, gets his furious rage...

At the end of Book 2, I played out the banquet for the heroes. I grabbed the Magnimar book and threw in the heads of the Pathfinders in the area, the Derexhis (reading Blood of the City really made me excited to add them), the Aspis Consortium agent, and my fighter really took the time to shmooze, surprised me a lot.

The group Ninja is a childhood friend of Ameiko and courting her, and she is trying to get the glassworks up and running again, so she happened to be in town trying to negotiate with the guilds. He had a nice opportunity to spend some time with her, and then saw her again at the banquet.

After the banquet, the fighter had been talking about Hellknights, and I had just gotten the Inner Sea NPC Codex. The fighter was a merc from Riddleport who left after destroying someone's ferry, so they hired the Hellknights to bring him in. It was a good way to get them on the road to Turtleback Ferry and Fort Rannick.

He decided to swear vengeance on the Hellknights of the Nail, so I fully restatted the knight as Paralictor Minerva Pax, LG Fighter 5/Hellknight 7, and a thorn in his side for session to come. When he finally beats her in a duel, I'll have him knock off her helmet and reveal her booming masculine voice was created by her oversized Plate.

The next time she shows up in going to be next session with a small unit of Hellknights and Armigers under her command at Fort Rannick. The Ninja is trying to free Kaven on moral grounds (he's held off the execution twice) and will have a chance to see the hellknight scouting party before they arrive the next day. If he finds them, he'll be in a difficult spot trying to explain what he was doing.

Do you have any advice for the people entering the Heroes of Magnimar contest?

Samson was not a Paladin. Just studied him recently. If he was, he was given a very lenient GM who eventually decided he wasn't being Lawful Good after he broke EVERY part of his code.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Inner Sea War breaks out. Almost every nation picks a side. Which is a stronger bond, Lawfulness vs Chaos or Good vs Evil?

Do the Nuetral Nations pull a Switzerland or pick a side?

What two or three nations would you like to see team up?

I tip about 20% since it's easier math, and I'm overtly Religious. I pray for my food at the table aloud with my friends. We have friends who will literally ask a waiter or waitress how much they think they deserve and will tip any amount they say, although this is usually less than he would have tipped them.

I had a large group of friends who would eat out at the same place every week and one waitress came in sick. They asked her why she was there when she didn't look well, and she told them she needed to be there because their tips helped her buy a new car.

This was while they went from low to high income.

The thing that causes them to tip higher than usual is their principles and morals. They value people and we treat our servers as people, not workers.

I actually am asking this because I had a party actually with the help of hired labor break down a wizard's tower because it was built out of blocks of mithril. It took them a month of game time, and I even used it to build some encounters off of where thieves, dragons, or some other group of greedy jerks attacked them. Should I have put a stop to this? Does this sound like the party was too thorough?

In hindsight, if I ever do something like this, it'll be a transmutation effect that ends once the wizard is dead...
