Once again, I can't pledge because of the wanky garbled speech my software is presenting me with... aka I'm blind and can't understand a word when I click on the link. To be fair, I've never had this problem with kickstarter, so I don't have a clue why this is happening. I've played and GM'ed this adventure before, so I want it for 2nd ed. Please, someone out there help me with this. I really want this book/pdf.

First off I’m blind. I’d love to pledge for this project, but every time I click on either KingmakerCampaign.com. or the Make your pledge on Game On Tabletop! Links I get a bunch of garbled speech. I use speech reading software. I’ve had someone look at the screen and it is all in English, so I don’t know where the problem lies. Just thought someone should know.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

I'm perfectly fine with the way it is.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Its perfectly possible within the 2nd ed. rules. Its called a leap and doesn't even require a skill check. It only requires a skill check when the distances get excessive.

Welcom back! Now if only we could get the rest of the gang back together...

My question is "What is the Opportunity cost of [not] taking Monastic Weapons at level 1?"

'look a creature flying 15' in the air... maybe I can spend 2 actions to high jump and HOPE I roll high enough to hit it with a punch [and not crit fail and look silly damaging myself]. Or I can just meditate until people with ACTUAL ranged attacks finish it off...'

'Oh look, a diseased/poisonous/ect creature... Well I either punch it, since master never trained me up to wizard weapon standards, or I go back to meditating...'

ect...

OK, seriously guys, I think monks should get weapon profiency by default too, but this "even wizards can use simple weapons" meme needs to stop. We have not been told that, and its omission from the wizard blog plus cantrips replacing the need to shoot a crossbow makes me think they probably don't get them.

Given the untrained penalty is only -2 and everyone is adding their full level to attack rolls anyway, there's very little reason to give weapon proficiency to classes or beings that don't actually use weapons. The monk should maybe not fall into that category, but let's stop assuming the wizard is better until we have an indication that they actually are.

Ok, I’m going to comment here. I playtested Ezren at Origins and he was proficient with a staff, dagger, and crossbow. Whether or not he was proficient with other simple weapons, that remains to be seen.

I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

Being totally blind, I know that almost all icons in almost every game I've found them in, are absolutely worthless when it comes to screen readers. Most of the time the icons doen't even show up at all. Starfinder icons for instance show up as a number. Unfortunately, that number is never the same, even for the same icon. Its beyond annoying.

Okay. This. Most definitely this. I had a blind brother (he passed away a couple decades ago). My own vision isn't the best these days and eventually I could lose my own sight (as could anyone here). I know you want to use abbreviations and save space but... make this so Text Readers can read these statistics and blind users are able to continue to game.

Don't set up fences keeping blind people from the game. Take the time to spell things out slightly more and remain ADA compliant. :)

Thank you. I was trying to find just the right way to explain that. This is a game that even I can play, and I'd like to keep it that way. There isn't many of us out there, but I still would like to feel like they took me into consideration.

I love almost everything I've read about. I have one concern however. You keep mentioning all these icons that will be appearing in the text to denote types of actions, etc. Being blind, icons like this are a real pain. I can’t read them with my software. This makes it impossible for me to even create a character without help. Please find a way in which people like me can enjoy your products without having to resort to outside assistance. Thanks for listening.

Sweet! I've been waiting for more info on this location for quite some time.

In that situation, bards are king. I GM a group where One of my players always plays a bard. Nobody in the group regrets it. He often ends encounters before the fight even begins, and if it does, everyone else is much better in that same fight from his inspire courage.

Sad. He is one of my favorite rock icons.

Some feats designed specifically for animal companions would be nice.

Yeah, no paizo product has any such feat.

It is impossible to acquire in the module because of one of its prerequisites
I believe the intent is that players path into the class at some point in the third book.
CR13 opening encounter? Look forward to seeing the best time to fulfilling the tricky prerequisite

I'll make it work. I love prestige classes. Either way, thanks for the info Michelle!

I'd also prefer higher level adventures (16+). As for theme, I'm game for about anything as long as it is interesting.

You have Mephistopheles gloriously in the back taking up most of the cover while also making it hard for Charon to steer his boat. There's a Brimorak demon in the corner standing on a skull leaking lava.

Thanks Rysky! That does sound pretty awesome. Metal indeed!

The tooth of ahazu from part 3 and the Nimbus Bow from part 7 is the only thing I think you might need.

Nope. One man's bloat is another man's boring. I consistently use everything pathfinder has to offer and I'm still looking for more stuff to fill the gaps in my campaigns. AKA, I want more.

Sweet! This just gets more and more interesting everytime a new post comes up. I can't wait to spend the time exploring the pages.

After about 15 years of being blind, I can assure you that you can learn to train yourself to perceive things better. It got to the point in college, that I could tell who was coming near me by listening to how my friends walked. It became agame to try and trick me. Needless to say, it didn’t work.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I hope if this book does really well, that we get more prestige class offerings in the future. Not just religious themed ones either. Paths of the Militant for more martial characters, Paths of Mysticism for the arcane and occult, or Paths of the Knave for your rogue types as an example. I guess we’ll see. Either way, I’m excited for this one.

One thing about getting Golarion content in the RPG line is that the PDF should be cheaper. I hope...

Awesome! Finally an overview of a sky citadel! Also, the dwarven artifact sounds interesting.

Pathfinder is a good game, but it is... how shall we say... bloated and imbalanced?

5E has the advantage of being a newer and being a lighter system.

There are plenty of PF people out there, but PF is a bit less ubiquitous now.

Probably one of the most ridiculous statements I've ever heard. You may consider it bloated, I think it needs more options. If I wanted to just make up rules on the fly D and D 5th is what I would be looking for. I however, don't want that. Also, pathfinder is only bloated if you let it be that. You can limit anything in your own game, and to say pathfinder is bloated when you don't regulate your players is disingenuous. Just my opinion. Variety is the spice of life.

Yes we have a Grognard, and its me. I've been playing this game for about 38 years or so now.

One of the saddest things in a long while. I wish you luck in your future. We will miss you Liz.

One man's classic is another man's boring. I'm blind and can't see it either way so I have no opinion. As for why would anyone want to play afrog, when I was a kid, I wanted to be Kermit. As he once said, it isn't easy being green.

I'm liking what I see so far, so I'll reserve judgement after its in my downloads. Racial feats and archetypes are always welcome, even if I usually only play humans.

Fighters. Blasters. Rogues. Take your pick.

Indeed! I'm honestly quite surprised that they lasted as long as they did. I loved the journals in the early years, but I looked at them less and less as time has passed. Now, I don't even glance at them.

I think this is good news, and I can't wait to see what Paizo does with the extra pages.

Agreed on all counts.

Woo woo! Awesome to say the least! Arch-devils, horseman, and more emporal lords! I like the big ones!

I can live with or without the fiction. Sometimes its fun, but I've found I'd rather have more setting details.

I wonder how many groups play 'full pathfinder' with every single Paizo rule book?

As a DM, I generally open the floodgates and tell my players "play whatever you want, even 3PP. Just let me see what you want to do first."

Same here. I use all the official Pathfinder books in my games. If I don't have it, and you want to play it, give me a heads up and I'll integrate it. It also helps to trust your players not to get out of hand. Most of my players also realize that if they abuse something, as a GM, I can make it very bad for them.

Not liking the idea of Azlanti AP introducing new underwater combat rules, if those rules are needed they should be issued as Errata. Doing it this way deprives others of these rules, and means future APs/modules with...

Like other AP's with expanding rules in them (Jade Regent, Skulls and Shackles), it will probably be in the players guide, which will be free. I hope so anyways. Not that it matters, because I'm buying them all anyways.

Non-magical means of dealing with restoration-level maladies or no buy. Divine magic's exclusive lock on healing is one of the biggest issues of this game and needs to be addressed.

1) Wands of CLW have long replaced the need for a 'healer'

2) Loads of classes have ways to access healing spells

3) If anything the reverse is true, divine magic has virtually no 'lock ins'

Man, oh man, I had a player once who thought that he and his party could replace the role of a healer with a wand of cure light wounds.

He's very much enjoying his second character in our campaign, a life oracle. >:)

I once had a party almost last until 5th level with that philosophy. Almost... Needless to say, we haven't had a party since without some type of healer.

Now if we only had something that would actually allow you to lose a limb every once and awhile. Its pretty rare anymore.

From the glossary of the bestiary:

Magical Beast
Magical beasts are similar to animals but can have Intelligence scores higher than 2 (in which case the creature knows at least one language, but can’t necessarily speak).

I'm pretty sure that settles it.

There is only one solution to this problem.
...
..
.
Rocks fall, everyone dies.

You’ve painted yourself into a corner with this party.
Your entire party is well beyond its normal power level. You’ve let them get away with too much. They have from what it sounds like, the absolute optimal equipment for every encounter. For example: They all have fog-cutter lenses, they all have some sort of see invisibility, all their AC’s are through the roof, and everyone’s save is impossible to bypass.

I’d probably put your partys APL at about 3 higher than expected. All of this and you are not willing to change anything from the adventure.

Harsh reality here, but you might as well just pack it up and start over.
