Would you (and everyone else here!) find a Lost Omen book that has more encounter maps, short adventures, and the like useful? I don't know if a book that is just adventures is the best fit for this line, but there might be a way to give it the Lost Omen spin, as it were, and make it a book that features content for players and GMs of all kinds, not just 128 pages of adventure.

Definitely, I would then purchase, I am skipping these currently through lack of stuff useful to me.

Will you be putting up any remaining print versions of this book (and the Starfinder one, too) for sale? The local store here finally decided to no longer participate in Free RPG Day, thus eliminating the last actual thing they were any good for.

There was a comment above saying they can sell them late July. They have never in previous years listed them, as far as I recall, in the store until that date they can sell them.

Will this compilation include Revenge of the Kobold King?

Also, I would like to voice my desire to see a D&D 5e version of this compilation.

Thanks!

It won't include "Revenge" since that adventure has to take place AFTER this one.

No plans to do a 5E version.

Thanks for answering my question.

I will say I'm a bit disappointed as Revenge could be a good epilogue adventure. However, I understand your reasoning.

I'm definitely going to pick this one up.

Agreed, leaving out revenge seems like a miss, incomplete. Shame.

Sorry for the lack of clarity. If you had the grandfathered Paizo Advantage discount, you should still have it. If you do not, please email Customer Service.

That's great, thank you.

Hi, whilst I like the dressing stuff, I did feel a bit robbed to have not got a veiled master in my case, can't help thinking this is the one that got swapped out. In my opinion you should never swap these for large uncommon/rare figures.

Hi,

Due to your intransigent attitude towards shipping miniatures separately and, frankly, the email which implied I was asking something morally questionable when I asked for my PF Battles figures to be shipped separately, I need you to cancel Order 3316318.

I can't take the chance that you'll ship this with paper goods and end up costing me what will be well in excess of £20 on a product which costs less than that.

I am disappointed as a customer, especially one who spends as much as I do, that Paizo's previous impeccable customer service has deteriorated in such a manner. I'm taking this action due to no response to my last email.

Lewis.

If you mean will these be part of the PFB subscription, that has been answered.

If you are asking if they will have their own subscription, that I have not seen an answer to yet.

Well I must be missing something because I can't see it on that post and it certainly doesn't answer why when I order them (because I'm guessing from the above that they are not part of the subscription - there should be a subscription offered!) that set 1 comes up at $18.99 and set 2 at $20.99. Huh?

Updated to add in recent releases and also added a thumbnail for each mini (well started to anyway!)

Eventually I'll try to do something clever with the pics, like have them appear as links maybe, but will have to work out how to.

Anyway, hope it helps someone else too.

Hi,

I get all the Reaper PF minis and was getting frustrated trying to remember which fig was in which AP (basically I keep finding out after teh NPC has appeared!). Figured a quick spreadsheet would be useful and I couldn't find something like this when I looked, so I've knocked one together which I'll try to update now and then. I hope it helps. Feel free to comment if you find anything wrong or have suggestions.

Cheers,

What's the problem?
The problem, though, is that not everyone monitors the website to see what's coming next. I think a lot of people, myself included, have spent 3 years getting accustomed to receiving books for grown-ups through the subscriptions. If I hadn't randomly checked in to Paizo's website, I would've never expected to receive a boxed game for children - automatically - through my subscription. I think there's a lot of other people in the same boat.
This sums up my position perfectly, I've never been so annoyed at Paizo.

But you found out in time to avoid it and opt out. They clearly did enough communicating (in your case at least) so you didn't end up paying for something you didn't want. Yet they still provided you with the opportunity to get the subscriber benefits.

How is it bad to have one option you don't want if they also give you the option you do (via the "we're about to ship..." email)?

I'm trying to and if it works then I'll move on.

Mind you, I admit I should have edited out the "childrens" bit from the original post. Apologies for that, I have no problem from an age POV, merely the beginner product for a subscriber system, which seems at odds.

Hi,

I had a recent order, some PF minis combined, into 1 package. I'd prefer you didn't do this as I end up with customs charges. I purposely select the minis per order to stay under the customs charge limit because the postage is significantly less than the rip-off customs handling charges the Royal Mail add. Is there any way of stopping you guys combining orders?

Ta,

Lewis.

Unfortunately there is no way to stop our system from combining orders that would be sent out at the same time. However, you can get the order size you want by placing your first order then after you receive the shipping confirmation for that order, placing your next order as normal or by taking advantage of the "save for later" function in your shopping cart. This will insure that your orders are not combined and allow you more control over the size of your order and the customs fees incurred.

Seems a little crazy when there is the option to choose to combine orders!

Thanks for the response.

Personally I ran them for the first 2 parts but my group just didn't get a kick out of them, they just saw it as too contrived, so I've dropped them since and it's running fine as we move into book 4 of 6.

The really annoying thing is all the great beholder and mind flayer figures I have (or Bathalian for the Reaper ones - but they look the same ;-) ). That's a shame.

And before you say use them for your own adventures, I pretty much follow the AP's now days due to time. Time is not something I have tons of going spare between a job, kids and a couple of other hobbies.

I've run the first 2 by, as Gorbacz suggests, convertuing on the fly but it is getting harder as the combatants get more complex. This thread here has the conversions for the 3rd in the AP so I'm going to be trying that out.

There's also a comment above suggesting using the fast progression for xp and I support that. My group are just getting to 7th at the end of the second book using that progression table. There's 5 of them so that's just about right.

Much appreciated. I did the first two of this AP on the fly, but I must admit that gets harder as the foes get mnore complex. This'll help hugely. THanks!

Not a glitch. Our inventory updates throughout the day as we ship stuff, and our distributor also makes changes in theirs, but checking every product in both databases all the time wouldn't be a good idea. So we recheck both inventories when people try to check out with a product, and if it has gone out of stock between the last time we checked and this time, you get that message.

Cool, ta. Just waiting for the restock!

I may be reading the page poorly, but as far as I can tell, I can purchase it now if I want.

(I do want it, but can't get it right this second, unfortunately.)

Well, mainly it was the big red letter text informing me that it had been removed from my shopping cart because it was unavailable. But you're right. I just added back again. Must have been a glitch of some kind.

(and it looks like Masika had a similar belief.)

Your not dreaming. I tried to order the print version just now and got told it had been removed as it was unavailable. Is this a web page glitch or is this not available for order?

Gold, who cares. That doesn't hurt enough.

So ... basically leveling up just to get rid of the negative levels first?

I.E. - you are sticking with permanent level drain of TWO levels.

I -THINK- the idea was that one would no longer have those negative lvls AND THEN get your new lvl?
Sorry... removed my post as it was not really conveying what I was thinking.

Well im pretty sure it goes like this

Bob the 7 lvl fighter comes along and some stoned golem sits down on him by accident.

He then gets revived costing him a fortune :/ ! But otherwise "only" looses ...

QUOTE:

"cumulative –1 penalty on all ability checks, attack rolls,
combat maneuver checks, Combat Maneuver Defense,
saving throws, and skill checks (per negative level) . In addition, the creature
reduces its current and total hit points by 5 for each negative
level it possesses. The creature is also treated as one level
lower for the purpose of level-dependent variables (such as
spellcasting)"

But not two REAL levels.

When Bob goes up a lvl he gets whats coming to him and gets rid of those nasty penalties :)

Would that be about right azhrei_fje/Lewy ? :)

More for my game, having got sat on by the golem (love the scenario by the way, he'd certainly Bob after!) then he'd be 6th level. Half way to 7th.

It places him just behind the others but not so far that he can't catch that back up over time. I also record the xp amount at the point and a restoration spell will get Bob back to his original xp total once cast.

As for gold, if there's expensive material components, sure they'll need those. Always fleece the players!

This certainly works in my game. Having said that I've always played level drain as permanent (boy players fear undead!), though I have incorporated into this the 3rd Ed change to give a save first. In 1st and 2nd ed they didn't even get that. Again a restoration would work the same.

Hi,

If anyone is looking for a Core Rulebook still in the UK, some seem to have crept in. One of my players went into Eclectic Games in Reading to order a copy and was surprised to see they had a "pile of them". They had previously sold out and his impression was the owner was surprised to have got any.
