Friendly reminder that if you want to be informed when the stream is starting, have any episode suggestions, want to ask Linda & Mark a question or just want to talk about anything, join Arcane Mark discord server.
You never know, maybe Linda and Mark will spoil something from PF2 rules (they won't, but one can hope).
Also today 7PM PDT there will be a stream Dev Tools: What Does it Take to Make an Interactive Special here.

Thanks for the info! Those are great news.
I guess that might be what Erik Mona has been working on recently according to this post.
Thanks for the info. I have no reason not to believe Jason, of course.
I wonder what other endings were and what would happen if the fight went smoothly. We will never know, but I suspect it has something to do with the key that can be hiding many mysteries.
I love the key being part of the story from session 2 and it slowly starting to affect the players.
Also Jason having multiple ways prepared and being flexible is a gentle reminder to me to stop railroading players as much.
I am confused by that death too. If Jason and Owen agreed on killing his character in advance, I would expect something bit more heroic and memorable. Also I don't think Jason is a fan of fudging rolls, so I wonder what their plan was if it was not staged.
Maybe now after what happened Qundle is going to be somehow brought back from death and that is the reason the death seemed quite "ordinary"? One never knows what will happen with that strange key nearby. Maybe normal death is the goal as not everything has to be super epic.
What I know is that I am very curious now about what is going to happen next. I guess that is the goal of the show, so mission accomplished :).
RIP Qundle. It was an interesting character and a very nice showcase that goblin PC doesn't have to annoy other party members :).
In the glass cannon playthrough the knowledge checks were in the open. Everyone knew about the critical fail and the flamingos ...
That is true. And in the Oblivion Oath where the atmosphere is bit more serious Jason did a secret check at some point. Not 100% sure where it was though, but hopefully someone else can remember what that check was about.
I think Jason used open roll and flamingos as an inspiration for more jokes and they really put those flamingos to a good use.
Here is Mark’s Making an RPG Book stream.
His twitch channel is here, but only last couple of streams are archived there by twitch. Rest can be found on his youtube channel.

In case those 5 spoilers get completely lost, could you be so kind, create another twitter account and post them. I am sure we can reciprocate your efforts with a nice bottle of scotch O:) .
Have fun out there!
AFAIK Jason mentioned somewhere (twitter?) that those higher tiers would get early access to PF2 books and then he got corrected that that reward is not planned.
I can imagine that some goodies like that instead of (or added to) the Star Wars collection tours would make some impatient rich backers go wild(er).
But yeah, I wouldn't be able to defend spending 2500 even if I was promised lifetime free supply of Paizo books together with existing rewards.
Hopefully Paizo will figure out how to make this campaigns even more successful than this in the future if they decide to use this approach again. Cannot wait to get that casual PF2 Special Edition AP with 1000 pages :P .
I would love for the campaign to hit the $475k goal, but the chances are low. Fingers crossed tho.
Unfortunately high reward tiers were not interesting enough for the backers for that price. Getting 5/5 High Priests would help a lot :).
