1) A solidly science-fantasy styled campaign that draws on Numeria, Distant Worlds and Alkenstar among other elements. Perhaps the Azlant legacy would have a nice place here, with the obvious Atlantis/Ancient Astronauts type of vibe. Offset that with some savage tribal foes, barbaric PC types and you've got the tasty tasty soup of Kull, Conan and John Carter to enjoy.
2) A true mega-dungeon. Complete with surrounding wilderness, dungeon dwelling factions and mysteries to offset the exploration and hacking. A full 15 levels of dungeon crawling mayhem would be delicious.

Nah, I was an arse and you called me on it.
No worries. As to Pathfinder? Whether I love or loathe the actual game, there's still Golarion and the Chronicles for me to steal stuff from. :)
So my fears are now confirmed.
Spellcasters are awesome, get cool options and toys in Pathfinder.
Fighters get to swing a sword and basically suck.
Oh well, I had hopes that the promises of a 'fixed' 3.5 would be true...not just a pipe dream.
Good day Paizo, I wish you luck.
You'll need it if you're assuming that the vocal minority here on your own site are going to keep you afloat. Somehow I don't see those 10,000 downloads of the free playtest being repeated when you ask us to pay money for lukewarm 3.x with all the same problems as before.
You do all realise that you cannot take more than one extended rest in a given game day right?
The 15 minute adventuring day is not possible by the rules, so not a problem.
Your players complain? Explain the logistics of having a full nights sleep an hour after getting up, then throw some goblin ninja at them.

I'm a cider supper lately, favouring Scrumpy Jack and Kopparberg Perry, but I do enjoy my beer as the colder months approach. (Cider being reserved only for the summer months of course).
Abbot Ale is a wonderful smooth ale, nice easy drinking for an afternoon session. A hand rolled smoke adds a lot to it's flavour.
Newcastle Brown is the nightclub beer of choice, since it's fairly light, and the indestructible bottles ensure a lack of breakage in case of dance-related accident :)
Pendle Witch is a local brew, so always welcome and I've a soft spot for Leffe at times.
If I'm drinking at home it's either Hobgoblin or Fiddler's Elbow. Maybe a bottle of Champion Badger. My indoors drinking is normally either Tequila or Johnny Walker Black Label though.
Not really new, although I rarely post hereabouts. I've met a few of you in the chatroom (which I've lamentably not visited in a while).
I was a big fan of Dragon since #189 (just a couple of months after getting into gaming), and Dungeon since just after 3e debuted. I hopped on the Pathfinder train immediately, and have no intention of getting off anytime soon. :)
I'm also one of the weirdos who's running 3.5 (Eberron), Pathfinder AND 4e games, and loving all three of them.
Anyway, it's nice to be back after far too long away.
I thought they were already taking cues from paizo.. started with adventure paths ya know? :)
You mean like the one that started with Sunless Citadel?
(Ok, so that was an AP in name only, but it's not as if Paizo came up with the idea of a linked campaign now is it? They just did it best :))

Really? Why would that be, when the new PHBs won't be a revision of the earlier material?
The PHB II, III, etc will be introducing new races, classes etc not rewriting the previous books.
Hi, I recently re-subscribed to Pathfinder, and just recieved an e-mail notifying my that my first order is about to ship.
I'm just curious as to the inclusion of Pathfinder Companion on the order? I'm pretty sure I didn't order it...or is my mind playing tricks on me again?
Sorry for asking stupid questions if I did order it and just forgot!
And happy to be here again :)
I subscribed for a few months, until the slow death of my job, combined with the new postage rates led me down different avenues for my gaming jollies.
Now though, I've got the funds, the players and the anticipation of Pathfinder goodies to keep me where I should be.
I started running Castle Whiterock in January (after my group bought it for me as a Christmas pressie), and a couple of months in we decided to transplant the campaign to Golaron, using the awesome power of retcon.
I made some alterations to the map, and stuck Cillamar down on the northern border of Numeria and the River Kingdoms, about 120 miles northwest of Pitax. I've basically just pointed to the map and said 'Yeah, so there's a wee mountain range there, don't worry about it'.
The River Kingdoms made sense to me, just because it allows the campaign to progress without worrying after reworking details from either Pathfinder or CW to fit it in...plenty of room for another petty kingdom and a dungeon in the River Kingdoms.
Well, probably not in the Beta version, and it doesn't sound like the monsters will be part of it either, since Erik said a logical follow up to the RPG book would be a monster book.
Ah, I hadn't seen that. Still, it would be nice to have a selection of iconic monsters in the Pathfinder core. Just something to let folks run a game with the bare bones until a monster book comes along.
Thinking mainly of those people who might encounter the game once D&D is out of print here.
Nice to see I'm not the only person who's a fan of HoL.
Make Anything You Say Sound More Important Than The Voice of God was always my favourite.

So, FATAL D20 then? Sounds...unpleasant.
Ok, long time lurker- first time poster, big fan etc, etc, blah, blah and so forth.
Now that that's out of the way, I've a quick question for one and all. I only managed to pick up the first two installments of Shackled City in Dungeon magazine way back in '03, and I'm pondering picking up the hardcover. What I'd like to see first though is a general overview of the campaign, as was done for Age of Worms and Savage Tide- does such a thing exist, and would anyone be able to point me in the right direction?
Ta muchly in advance...and I'll see you all on the boards.
