A group I have been running in the Lost Lands came up with an underdark group. There was good reason at the time. Two were Drow and a couple of dark gnomes and a hobgoblin I believe.

They were not greeted with love where ever then went. As a matter of fact due to some unfortunate events Drow were banned from Bard's Gate by law due to some of their exploits.

The Lost Lands is rough on characters, and they are down to one Drow, and one dark gnome.

And they stay away from large cities these days.

There has been a lot of talk about the Lost Lands Campaign Setting, but no real date. I expect it will not be until next year at the earliest. Greg has done a lot of work on it over the past few years.

I was talking to Bill several months ago, and he said since 5th edition came out Pathfinder is not really selling well.

I usually buy all three versions, and I would like to see a Pathfinder version for sure.

I also understand now that PF2 has been announced there is reluctance to put out PF1 stuff (and who can blame them).

Now, one of the things that keeps me from going to 5th is that there is so much Lost Lands material that is not done in 5th Ed. I have been running a Lost Lands campaign for three or more years, and still want to run The Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms, Tsar and the Sword of Air.

I think most everything else made it to 5th. Being the group is in Rappan Ahtuk currently, maybe the 5th ed release will be my move.

Entering a threatened space does not provoke an attack of opportunity.

It is leaving a threatened square. If the creature has reach, only one attack can be made if they leave the threatened square 10 feet out into the square adjacent to the creature making the account.

I do not think you can make two AoO against the same person even with combat reflexes, but I also think it has never come up in my game.

You will like the new death mechanics.

Dying is a condition going from 1 to 4, if you hit 4, you die.
When you get to 0HP, you gain Dying 1 (you gain Dying 2 if you were downed by a Critical hit).
Each round you roll Fortitude-Dying vs DC based on strength of the foe that downed you. (In a playtest video, the boss had a DC of 17 while a zombie had 12 or less)
If you miss, you gain Dying+1, if it's a critical miss, it's Dying+2.
If you succeed, you get up to 1HP, become stable but stay unconscious and keep your lvl of Dying. Unles you get hit again, the next time you succeed you regain consciousness and begin losing 1 to you Dying condition each rounds. If you get downed again, you start at your current Dying lvl + 1 (+2 if crit).

If someone heals you, it's the same thing as if you got to 1HP by yourself, you keep your dying condition and you stay unconscious until you succeed at the Fortitude save.

I agree I will like the new death mechanics. I may bring them into my PF e1 game in the future after I get the BETA rules. I have so much stuff in 1e I have not played yet, that I want to play. It will be glorious.

For me channeling is already too powerful. I hope they take channeling out of the game. And I do not buy in to this idea. In the old days groups would sometimes have to go back to town for a week or more to heal completely. This never happens anymore. They heal in the middle of the battle to the point where they almost always win because the bad guys could never keep up with the healing that goes on. Channeling is the worse. I thought so when it came out, and I almost house ruled it out. I wish I had, and if it is still part of 2.0 I may house rule it out anyway, but it is tough when I have let it ride for 10 years.

I vote no to make the game more like a video game.

What happened is that it was a conversion of IP owned by WOTC. Paizo could not have that kind of thing on their site.

Scarab Sages

Another thing that cannot be taken into account with the intend of this thread is that WOTC does not direct sale, and Paizo is all about direct sales. I imagine most of Paizo's sale are direct and subscriptions.

Hello, I received my May Shipment in three separate boxes. 2 Cases of Miniatures and the other one had my books and one box of the Crimson Throne Room minis. I did not receive my second case incentive box.

I do not think I have another box coming, because I received emails on these three boxes and no others.

Thank you for your assistance with this.

Dead's man chest was printed as a 3.5 book, and updated a couple of years ago, as PDF only, when the earlier environment books were published - and that version was not published in hardcover. I have the original book... I have been asking for the Pathfinder version to be printed since it came out.

So, let's do that $40K.

What I like about FGG (besides they make fantastic products) is that most of the work is already done before the kickstarter. I understand the Blight is behind, but a lot of kickstarters get behind. I watch people who plan to use something that has not been produced yet, and then it is behind they get very upset. I never plan to use something until it arrives personally.

I have backed every FGG kickstarter, and they usually come out quickly next to other kickstarters. 6 years or ago or something I paid into a kickstarter with a small company for a monster book. They had not done any work at all until the kickstarter was done. I doubt at this stage I will ever see that book, and don't get me started on Throne of Night, which I also doubt will see the light of day at this stage.

This is why I like the Frogs. They have the product essentially written when they do the kickstarter. Now if Richard Pett delivers them a full set of encyclopedias that has not been developed yet, and needs editing, layout and such; and the main book cannot be done until other parts are finished, well then (even though written) that one might take a little longer than anticipated.

As Tom has said, these are written and will likely need layout and such, and I will always support the Frogs in eveything they do.

And if you ever get the chance sit down and talk to Greg, or Skeeter, or Bill. I happen to live close to the main pond, and when Tsar came out I went there to pick up. I was graciously welcomed, we had a nice talk, Greg offered to sign my book, and Bill served me some BBQ'd salmon. I really enjoyed meeting them, and talking with them. They are a class act.

Also, my experience is that they print enough to sell them for a year or two after the kickstarter is fulfilled.

It is likely not an issue unless it takes you years to scrape it together.

I am not much of a PDF reader for books like this. I was trying to use the PDF for a couple of game sessions because my group happened to show up in Bard's Gate about the time I received the PDF, but looking through the book yesterday was fantastic.

It has so much more than the D20 book had. It is likely the best city book I have seen. I am very happy, and wish I had another month before my next game session so I could actually read every thing.

Thank you Bill, Skeeter, Greg and all the Frogs...

Yes, I think once the Kickstarter is fulfilled they will be on sale. You should be able to buy the PDF right now, but if you want to book then wait, and you will get the PDF for free when you purchase the book.

I did not read the last page of the thread, but in the first two pages I think that there is a concept that no one is talking about.

I have said for years that the real difference between Paizo and WOTC is that Paizo's real focus is on the adventures. The adventure paths and the modules (also world building) are the real income stream that Paizo has on a monthly basis. PF came about because of 4e, and the change in the OGL to the GSL which was more restrictive, and could be pulled. WOTC's focus is on the rule books, and they do adventures to support that. Also, WOTC's adventures reach back into the past and rehash old material over and over. Sometimes this old material changes as part of their rehash like the current Temple of Elemental Evil book, sometimes it is just updated to the new rules. Do not get me wrong, I love my favorite ideas being updated. I like the rehash actually, but the focus of the companies are totally different.

Paizo does not die out if they stop creating new rule content because they continue to build the world, and create adventure paths. I also usually like what they have done with the rules, although there are more options than I will ever get to explore now...

I understand the appeal to 5e, I have not played it yet, but I still play 1e with my son from time to time... The simplicity of the old rules combined with some modern ideas of gaming is what appeals to me about 5e. I like the idea of faster combat, and as the DM not having so much happening to really play the NPCs and monsters to their potential.

Going back to a monsters that do not have feats or skills, and a simplified skill system, and feat system appeals to me, without THACO and some of the other things that were tough about the early game.

On the other hand the material I am running right now is in Pathfinder, and I am too busy to spend hours converting adventures to another ruleset.

So I think the differing philosophies of the two companies has a lot to do with the need for PF 2.0.

I have run part of Second Darkness, but the group self-destructed (not the AP) in the third chapter.

I have played in Legacy of Fire through the beginning of chapter six, and will finish that in 2017.

Of the two my preference would be for Second Darkness to be fixed, and updated. One of the issues in SD is that there was a place where the AP stopped, and picked up again a level later. I think ended at 4th and picked up again at 6th. This was something Paizo played with during the AP, and the other experiment was set pieces that were not really part of the AP but a side adventure, related but not part of the main story. You almost have to do the set pieces to keep up the progression for the AP.

I think SD, besides the general issues others have pointed out, could really use an update to integrate the whole AP better, and to fill in the gap they had. I liked the AP in general and would love it to be fixed.

As mentioned long ago JJ mentioned wanting to fix what was wrong with that AP, and I would love to see him get the chance.

I think FGG has a basic philosophy of game design that goes back to the beginning of D&D.

In the early days it was more a game of exploration and discovery rather than a game of stories and logic. I know that sometimes those old adventures did not make a lot of sense with placement of monsters, and sometimes it was distracting.

But the essence of a game of exploration can make for an amazing game. My group has a mix of those who started with 1st edition, and those that started with 3rd edition. Those that started with 1st edition get the Lost Lands in a way that the later starters don't quite get the same way.

What I really like about all the work is that it is such a sandbox. Unlike an AP it does not matter if the group abandons an adventure to do something else.

My group was just doing Barakas, and the jumped right into the caves in the hills. They ran into trouble, and needed to go back to town to actually survive (almost lost half the party), and when they got the help they needed, which took most of their money, they were asked if they could do a task for the local priest. They decided they would take up that task and they got on the road. I doubt they will ever make it back to Endhome from there. It is a very long trek to do what the priest asked them, and it will likely take three or four game sessions to get there. I cannot see them then heading back that 2000 or so miles to continue in Endhome. At that stage they may go onto Tsar or who knows where. It kind of doesn't matter where, there is adventure everywhere.

About Barakas I would say that mostly things hold together, in the actual caves and dungeons of Barakas there are areas where there are related creatures, like a group of Hobgoblins in several rooms, or goblins, or ratfolk. And at the same time a room or two can have something totally unrelated to the creatures around them.

I have been looking at 3rd party stuff since Pathfinder came out. I am a big fan of Frog God Games (Rappan Ahtuk, Sword of Air, The Lost City of Barakus, Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms and many more), their work is epic, and their world a huge sandbox. AAW has some things I have been interested in, but I am not a member of their website. Legendary Games seems to have some good material. Kolbold Press has a lot of good materials. Raging Swan has a lot of good material to flesh out your campaign.

I have not explored much beyond these companies but I would throw in another vote for the Advanced Bestiary.

My March shipping was supposed to have three Pathfinder Battles: Iconic Heroes Set #6 in it but it only had one. I always get my order the day after I get my shipping notification being I live in Lacey, WA.
