I like the bar on the left-hand pages, which repeats the cover/chapter opening artwork. I also like the new "blocky" Magic Item headers. I like the more readable keys on the maps.
It's the same for me... unfortunately i can't read the APs, because i'm currently playing SaS. So excuse me, i have some waiting to do.
Name: Hakon, Lureena
The Gory Details: The final battle srated with the heroes storming into the throne room, Hakon on his half-dragon wolf mount Calidus leading, as usual. Vordakai used his flash of insight on initiative and went first, hitting mount and rider with Waves of Fatigue, canceling Hakons favorite tactic: ride-by-charges. Hakon attacked the bodyguard without effect. Vordakais bodyguard, the graveknight antipaladin from the 6player conversion whom i named Horagnamon (who would come to know the name of the crow anyway?) declared smite good on Hakon, activated power attack, cleave, and flash of insight and attacked. The crit was confirmed, and Hakon dropped dead from the ~100 damage. The cleave hit Calidus too, harming him severely.
Lureena was brought back to life later with the scroll of Raise Dead from Varnhold.
The heroes killed Vordakai pretty fast, mainly due to the inquisitor critting twice with Searing Light, but flew from the furious Horagnamon.
They returned later, Hakon buffed with Mirror Image to successfully avoid the devastating opening attack from the anti-paladin, and they killed him for good.
Believe me, I know a lot about Kung Fu, and it has to be the Blood Cow Strike.In the history of Kung Fu, there where several styles that were inspired by the powerful and... eeeeh... gracious movements of cow, but not a single style was inspired by crows.
Well except this strange monastery up in the mountains, they had a crow style. But one of the monks got on the wrong side of this Pai Mei guy, and since then there was absolutely no crow style. Ever. Again.
This example is unfair. If the Navy had access to Adamatium, they wouldn't use steel for their battleships... ;-)
The mounting is quite solid, it is made of 24mm fibreplate like the rest of the table. The problem with a bigger projector would be, that with my setup, you would have a smaller projection distance, hence a smaller diameter of the final projection. I have seen another table on the internet where they used a bigger projector and a much more complicated setup under the table involving two mirrors.
I considered this possibility too, but decided against it in the end.My main issues were
b) danger of spilled drinks and
c) that no one is willing to guarantee you that the flat panel lying on atable will be working as good and having a lifetime as long as one standing upright.
The first version of my tabletop projector table, demonstrated with the Pathfinder RPG Beginner Box.
The table has a size of 180cm X 140cm, the projection surface is 100cm X 60cm; with the current projector setup, a "screen" diagonal of about 100cm can be achieved.
The table has foldable legs and can be split apart in the middle to be transported in 2 parts.
The projection surface is currently just plain paper; this will soon be replaced with 2 layers of acrylic glass and paper sandwiched between them. It will then be sturdy enough to carry the weight of bigger miniatures.
The projector setup is quite simple, a DELL mini LED projector pointing downward at a slight angle (~ 5°) at a mirror, for a total projection distance of about 120cm. The mirror on the ground is currently much bigger than necessary and will be replaced by a smaller one (40cm X 30cm will suffice).
I will be using MapTool to display the maps.
I don't think this will work as long as your target is riding on a mount with a natural fly speed:

Way back before the Bestiary 1 was released there was a discussion about monsters whose abilities didn't quite match their flavour, and I put up that the bebilith is supposed to be a hunter of lesser demons, but his strongest weapon is poison (in the 3.5 version), despite demons being immune to poison.
