Will there be options for "no magic" space campaigns?

Ultimate Equipment stated foxes were canines. If foxes appear in Animal Companions, and if the book isn't already at print, please make sure foxes are listed as vulpines, not canines.

Wolves and foxes are canines. However wolves (and domestic dogs) are lupines and foxes are vulpines. I think THAT is what you meant.

Thank you, Block Knight. It was a dream come true, and an awesome responsibility. I hope I have lived up to the challenge.

AP's are a big responsibility, but I really enjoyed writing this. Every writer has their own style, and my hope was to provide a lot of cool roleplaying situations and deliver a challenging and interesting adventure in all other respects as well.

I hope people enjoy it, and now that it is announced I'm going to simmer down, hush up, and let the developers do their craft and polish it. My hope is that the final product does the AP line proud.

Let me add to the many kudos you are getting! Since the days that you went by "Watcher", I knew you had that "Special Something" for writing awesome stuff (heck you helped me when I was stumped in my home brew designing on a few occassions and I thank you for that!). So, I know that your work with this AP will be beyond awesome!

I beg your pardon but what is RoW?

At one time, Kenzer and Co. was about to do a dwarf source book for the Kingdoms of Kalamr setting that broke the stereotypes associated with dwarves. Since it got shelved when KofK would no longer be a D&D Compatible product, the author got permission to release the initial manuscript as a "freebie". I do believe that I have a copy. One steotypes that was busted was the one where dwarven women grew beards. It was explained that dwarven women didn't "grow" beards (becuase, like human women, they aren't able to) but if they were widowed and expected to run their late husband's affairs (business transcation and other stuff), then she was to wear an artificial beard while doing such transactions in order to be taken seriously by the VERY male-dominated Dwarven society. If she were to remarry then her new husband could act as "proxy" (basically he was the "figurehead head of household") in all of her late husband's transactions and she would be allowed to remove the fake beard. That was just one example of blown stereotypes but there were others.
Is that manuscript available online somewhere?

Goto the Kenzer and Co. Website and look up "Wiggy's Unfinished Dwarf Book" in the forums. I am sure someone would gladly send you a copy via email!

Any more updates on when the third installment is happening or how far along it is?

There are some pregenerated iconics right here.
You see? Something like this for the other iconics (advanced Player's Guide and Ultimate Magic) would be great at this location, too.
Mark Moreland has posted over in the PFS forum that the pregens of the APG character classes are currently being reworked to be like the new Core Book pregens, will be PFS legal, and will be available eventually. Though, as they were before, they will only come as 1st, 4th, and 7th level, since those are the only levels you can use pregens in PFS play.

Okay that's cool! I personally would love to see how Seltyiel is worked out as a Magus. He's my favorite "tortured soul" type of character.

Might I make a suggestion (and if someone has already suggested this, then never-mind)? For those wanting the Iconics posted "somewhere" how about a PDF only book similar to...Well, that other Company's book...Enemies and Allies where the Iconics' stats (and what not) are featured at levels as per the APs (one, four, seven, ten, thirteen, and fifteen) or with an "every four" progression (one, four, eight, twelve, sixteen, and twenty). You could include ALL iconics this way (Core Rules, Advanced Player's Guide, Ultimate Magic, Ultimate Combat and what not).Yeah I'd buy that!

Okay I must protest. Paizo staff, you need to stop putting out all of this awesomeness. My wallet can't keep up! Seriuosly though I must say that you men and women at Paizo are putting out great stuff. Keep up the great work!

The real test won't be this first set, the real test will be what they release after these "iconics".

Agreed!

I have no prblem with these being the first four minis. We have to get the ball rolling somehow. If more of us buy these, then WizKids will have incentive to make more. I, for one, have been looking forward to this for a long time.
