I've considered starting characters at 3rd level in the adventure path I'm choosing to run. They would have 0 experience points and limited funds though, and wouldn't advance until they earn enough experience to go to 4th level.

This is a great adventure path for that approach. They would start out as the town bullies and become accustomed to getting their way. But then the fights start getting tougher ...

Love the Chelsea Dagger name.

Makes me want to name my next character Red Barchetta.

Thank you. The order looks good now.

Hi Serpentine Owl!

Thank you for your patience, we've been working through a backlog of messages in our inbox. Sorry about the glitch, but everything is all set, I've pushed your order through to our warehouse, and it will ship out ASAP!

I sent an email about this last Wednesday but hadn't heard anything. All the physical items in my order #15571726 have disappeared from the order history on the website and the order shows zero items with a zero order total.

I was billed only for the digital items in the order, and was able to download the files so no problem with that part. The order on the website shows the payment for that even though the order total is zero.

Just run the first three parts of an AP - or the last three. Or three from across three different APs. It's not that difficult.

Such a good idea. Assuming I started a three book arc with Trial of the Beast, what would be a good second and third book to progress through?

Hi Serpentine Owl,

Thanks for letting us know! I can't currently see why I didn't generate #122 for you. I've added a copy to your pending order, #4497427. You should get an updated order confirmation email for that.


Thanks, everything looks to be in order. Billed and download available.

Hello Feeroper,

It looks like the system did not generate your September order. I have generated the subscription items and you should be receiving an email confirmation. It should be on its way soon.

My September order is in the same condition. No billing or indication of shipping/download, and it shows my next Adventure Path subscription item is Azlant #3. I wonder if it has something to do with picking up my subscriptions at GenCon.

Don't sell religious fervor short. A cult can accomplish great deeds with the sacrifice of their true believers.

If you can afford to buy the books or PDF's, then do so. It supports the development of more OGL Pathfinder content from Paizo.

It also supports the health of the RPG industry by encouraging other companies to produce OGL content for Pathfinder. The skills that are developed by those third parties can spill over into development for other RPG systems.

Better? :)

Messi is never offside. But apparently, he's always offshore.

I hate to follow one mirror Valeros with another, but this is a different flavor.

Valeros quickly fell on hard times after leaving the farm, and ended up having to accept some dangerous assignments. One such assignment resulted in him and his whole company being slaughtered. Left for dead, his previously unknown Dhampir Racial Heritage awoke and he drank the blood of a fallen comrade to restore his health enough to recover and survive.

Knowledge of his Dhampir nature and a developing addiction to the blood of humans drove him to Evil. Now he no longer feels whole unless he has been invigorated by the taste of human blood. He signs on with any Mercenary company willing to look the other way as he feeds on the fallen.

I was able to download a number of files this morning using Explorer. Chrome is not working for me at all.

The key is to set a timer for 6 minutes after clicking on the file you want to download. You'll get the wait 10 seconds prompt. Do something else for a couple of minutes.

When the timer goes off, click on the download again, and you should get the auto-download to kick off. Download only one file at a time and help out your fellow purchasers.

Success in downloading files gave me the courage to pick up the PDF for Hell's Vengeance. I bought it and downloaded it straight away with the first attempt. This looks fun.

I did this in a campaign with a Halfling Necromancer villain.

When he was first encountered, he was living. The party captured him and remanded him for justice, where he was sentenced to die by hanging.

He came back as an Undead Zombie Master to harass the party later. They defeated him again, but an underling bamfed with the head.

He made his final appearance as a Brain in a Jar.

Ah, Phinn, how I miss you and your evil ways.
