What kind of downtime activities will be in it?

How are you seeing the creation of custom monsters with special abilities? Is there guidance in creating level appropriate actions?


The GM should be able to tailor the game to how their players want to play their characters within reason.

I have no idea how long it took me. I would get distracted and start reading entire sections of the book, totally unrelated to the thing I was looking up. Oh a squirrel. I made a level 1 Goblin Thief.


Your wife is correct. Here is a good video from Paizo on character creation.

Race is no longer a thing. It is now Ancestry. So you can have multiple ancestries within an ancestry?
No, you just have a list of ancestries.
So what is the in-game term for species?

Whatever you want it to be.

As far as your ability scores go, you can voluntarily have a lower score for RP reasons. You do not get any bonus points to spend from this.


I actually prefer form fillable without macros. I keep scripts disabled in the settings of my PDF software.


Ok, yes it is just the example. Not all monsters get AoO (Attack of Opportunity). A fair number of them do.


I don't see all monsters getting AoEs.

Are you referring to hazards? If so, then these usually target an area. They are usually unintelligent, and can't pick a particular target. They just apply to a predefined area.


Every level is 1,000 XP.


What about the half Troglodyte. XD

Not only is there no more hit dice rolling, the concept of hit dice isn't part of this game at all.
Good riddance to bad rubbish, says I!

Yeah, I am not a fan of hit point rolling. If a player gets some bad rolls, they force a gimp on the creature I can throw at them.


With Foxit PhantomPDF Standard, it is pretty easy to do forms.


Nice and quick. WOOTERS!!!!!!


Sleep is done. One hour to go. I am ready. WOOTERS!!!!!


12 hours to go. A sleep and then I will be ready.


I think they need a countdown timer. XD

If I remember correctly, one of the team, during a session at PaizoCon, mentioned that there would probably be an x week period after release and before the first playtest session began, specifically so people could familiarize themselves with the general material. They are asking us not to rush ahead as they want players experiencing the settings fresh during each playtest window. They had not at that time determined exactly what the length of the x week familiarization window would be, so that may be why we have yet to hear anything.

The OP's post was based on that comment. I believe it was Jason that said the first was three weeks with the rest being two weeks each.

Now they can decide to change their minds, but that was the plan they mentioned at the time.


This is pretty awesome. Just received mine.


Thank you. I am eager for one to grace my desk.


We are getting close to the end of the month. Is there any word on availability?

I think my desk at work needs this on it right next to my Fallout Bobblehead. :)


Some more experimental paths.

A fungus / plant centric path with the players playing as fungus or plant races.

An under water path with the players playing as an underwater race.

If you want to read something about the AP, you should wait until they release the Player's Guide. This will give you the information about the AP that should not spoil it.

On Sale Now / Paizo PDF Love 2014 Sale—40% Off Select PDFs! / Dungeon Magazine

I think I am on the proper page. I added one to my cart and it did not display a sale amount.

Should be 30%, but yeah, not sure why it's not apply to those (when it should have). Looking into it.

Edit: Poked a thing. Dungeon and Dragon Magazine PDFs should be 30% off now.

Yep, thank you. Now for the big purchase. :)

Are you guys still in talks with WotC on reselling the PDFs or did they just say no?

There were never any PDFs of the 3.5 core rulebooks previously, so imagine that might be one reason why they are not available now (not sure whether AD&D core rulebooks were available previously).

Mind you the 4e core rulebooks were available previously and they are not up yet either (maybe WotC want the Essentials books up there instead).

I can say for a fact that Paizo was selling the ADnD DMG, PHB, and MM back in 2006 as I purchased them. I too would like to see Paizo selling the PDFs again as I purchased a number of them here as well. Here is for hoping.


The spell Haunting Mists in the Ultimate Magic section of the PRD is not on its own page.

It is included on the page of Haunting Choir.

It does not show up on the Ultimate Magic Spell Index as well.


The bookmark "Table 3-1: Character Advancement and Level-Dependent Bonuses" in the single file core book (PDF) is pointing to the wrong location. I do have the updated core book.


Channel Energy is for targeting undead and living. Undead would include the Incorporeal undead. Now that this power is intended for this particular type of target I would grant full damage.


It will be interesting to see what this is. I like the idea of it working the same as Pathfinder with no rules conversions. Just the things that make the type of game like classes and such.

Who is creating it?
Will it be open like the rest of Pathfinder RPG?


I would have to say B.

I am not a huge fan of the generics (Fast, Strong, etc. classes) of D20 Modern. I would like something like campaign guides that created classes, feats, skills, weapons, etc. for that type of game. It would be cool if they matched up so you could put some stuff from one type into another with minimal to no work for some real off the wall type game. If the game mechanics remain the same as the Pathfinder rules it would be good as you would not need to come up with a whole different set of rules.

I think the fact that WotC does not support it much at all means that there is not much in the way of sales.


Hi there,

Just to let you know. It does not need to be fixed right a way.

In the bookmarks Chapter 14 - Creating NPCs is missing the t in Chapter. This is the single file PDF.

Just a minor thing.

Thank you.


Yes, the bookmarks in the single file look real nice. I did not check many links but all the ones I hit were correct.

Thank You,


I would like past 3.0 and on mags on disc. I have the old archive discs already. What I would really like is to subscribe to the magazine in digital format. I do not want the paper copies as they take up to much space and really hurts to throw out the old issues.

This is a request for a digital only subscription.

Thank you.
