It's Kingmaker.

To expand on that, the conversion is for PF2, but a 5e bestiary will be available.

Thanks DQ!

:
I did think it was the real Shaun at first; maybe he'd been taken because he was "pure human", ie. uncontaminated by the past 200 years of radiation, for example. His father would have been "the back up", because he was already fully grown.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

That's a surprise...

:
That Shaun is 60 years old and in charge of The Institute!

I decided to support the Railroad this first run-through, so we'll have to see how that plays out!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I'm enjoying Fallout 4. The graphics are amazing, and the setting is so big!
Not really bothered with the building stuff, as that seems a chore.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

DQ, thanks also for your reply!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Thanks for the replies, Phaedre and Sharoth!

Looking around, I found the main post you are referring to Sharoth:

Hi all. I'll be getting a new computer very soon, which means I should be able to run Fallout 4 (GOTY edition), which I've not been able to before.
Two questions:
1) Re Steam, will I have any problem reloading games onto my new machine?
2) On Nexus Mods, what are some useful and or fun mods for Fallout 4?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Are you aware of the Grimoire of Lost Souls?

You used to be able to buy a hardcopy version of it, but I see that you can still purchase the PDF.

I sold a number of gaming books on ebay some years ago using TurboLister. However, after doing some research I learned that support for TurboLister discontinued in 2017, and is not available on UK ebay any more. Now it seems that "seller hub" is the thing.
Has anyone used seller hub to create listings on ebay? Is it any good?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Thanks Werthead! I've now seen all but the last two episodes, and its definitely worth a watch. It can be seen on the BBC iPlayer if you have access to it.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

The above show is a new BBC comedy that is a mockumentary-style comedy about a group of vampires "living" in Staten Island. The three main leads are played by British actors. I've seen the pilot episode, and found it amusing.
I might add to this thread once I've seen more episodes, bur I'm mentioning it now in case its of interest to anyone else!

No, they screwed up. AA3 and Dawn of Flame 6 got bumped at the same time the PF2 Lost Omens book got bumped.

Ah, OK. Thanks!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Presumably, they want to focus on the launch of PF2 this time.

Strachan, well done. I hope you didn't have to pay too much for the collection!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

This link for the product on DriveThruRPG should work. Hope that helps!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Best wishes and good luck, Aaron! I hope you find your mojo sooner rather than later!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Thanks for the additional replies!

Last year, while I enjoyed the after-dinner talks, I didn't eat very much; I'm not sure if I wasn't feeling very well, or just not hungry. This year I decided not to attend the banquet to save some money; doesn't seem worth it if you don't eat much. Anyone else not going, but still attending the convention?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Has anyone read this book? Did you find it helpful?

If you're creating a PC and you know your GM likes to use brown mold, ray of frost is a must! ;)

I already exposed my theories about Mengkare and Promise years ago...

Interesting ideas! Personally, I prefer the idea that the dragon has become a victim of that council (and is still Lawful Good), and can thus be saved, than that there is a non-LG gold dragon.

Just over 40 minutes left with this kickstarter project!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Thought I'd raise awareness of this kickstarter project.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

This amused me. Others might like it too.

Note that the same people have done other parodies.

Note also that there are a ton of spoilers, and a bit of swearing (if that bothers some of you).


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Thought I'd bump this, if that's OK!

There is a Paizo adventure with an idol, it is:

For those who aren't aware, the mega-mod Fallout New California should be releasing tomorrow (the 23rd)! Not sure what time exactly yet, though.

It's being released on nexusmods and moddb (or whatever the latter is called, if it is something else).

Here's a link to the Facebook page about it.

If you've not heard about the mod before, it is set 20 years before Fallout New Vegas begins and is set in California. It's mostly been worked on by two people for years, and it'll be free! :)

The core rulebook be around the same size as the current one. Any bigger, and shipping costs become significantly more expensive for the customer. I hope that helps.

What is FOSS, please?

The big wide footer is at the bottom of the page. YAY!

Thanks for fixing that!

To the OP: Over the years, I have occasionally seen posts by people saying that they left 4e or 5e for Pathfinder because they found those games too limiting.

You go with your biggest customer base, and hope that the others come with you. Some will, some won't.

There's a maxim that 80% of the purchases of a business come from 20% of the customers; let’s call them Group A. The remaining 20% of the purchases of a business come from 80% of the customers; let’s call them Group B.

Applying that to Paizo, that probably means that the AP subscribers, whether or not they occasionally buy other Pathfinder books from Paizo or elsewhere, are their Group A. Obviously, the number of Group A people has shrunk over the last decade. Maybe they started with around 15,000-20,000 subscribers initially, and are now possibly at between 8,000-12,000 subscribers. Even if those numbers are wrong- and they probably are- the point is that Group A people have each spent thousands of dollars at Paizo, or proportionally, for those who became customers in the last few years. Some people from groups A and B will be regular PFS players, and some not. Group B might be the bigger customer base, but really, Group A is the most important sector to Paizo, IMO.

A decade ago, WotC did not cater to their Group A; they had a production-led product, ie. the game they wanted to sell, and made several other mis-steps. Naturally, WotC’s Group A declined, and Paizo gained from it when they launched the Pathfinder RPG.

These playtest documents were also production-led IMO, and while they may or may not be willing to listen and change a little or a lot, if 30%-80% of their current Group A is unhappy after next summer, we will see what happens then. Presumably, they will sell a lot of initial core rulebooks, monster books, new AP books, and so on in the short term, just as happened with initial 4e and Starfinder sales. (Although Starfinder is doing nicely enough for them that the game has a small staff.) Are Paizo also making mis-steps? Yes.

I think it would be good if Paizo could take more account of the Group A’s with their surveys, as long as it is verifiable, since anyone could lie and say how much they’ve spent, or might spend in the future with them.

I'm sorry to hear that, Yqatuba. It sounds like you have depression. Please visit a doctor.

I'm being forgetful. What is a group of tigers called? (This isn't a joke, btw!)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Apparently it's Adventurer's Armory 2.

Here's the d20pfsrd link.

Maybe the OP would find the Beginner's Box of use. There are also some 3pp adventures specifically designed to help beginners.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Good to see this available!

It's almost like you are saying that the answer to life, the universe, and everything is "42".

This is not meant as a jab or belittlement at all. But how could anyone worry that the initial printing of a months-long playtest document is finalized?

Perhaps he was worried about the actual release books?

Per ICv2 reports and other industry reports, 4e was ahead of Pathfinder (the number 2 product) for virtually the entire run of 4e (including Essentials). At the tail end, PF began occasionally pulled ahead of quarters where the 4e releases were Heroes of Shadow or Heroes of Elemental Chaos and then pulled ahead for good when all product releases were stopped completely and development began on 5e (interestingly, 4e was still number 2 in sales solely by virtue of continued sale of legacy products like the 6-year old PHB1; one wonders if Pathfinder could have stayed in the top 5 if they stopped releasing new products for two years). These numbers are born out by all the top 4e products on the bestsellers lists (New York Times, Amazon, other), where 4e products placed far higher for far longer than any Pathfinder product.

Interestingly, one of the first posts on the D&D section of the Paizo forums (for 4e and beyond), was a poll on how long 5e would be higher on the industry reports than Pathfinder (under the assumption that any enthusiasm for 5e would eventually die down and Pathfinder (1) would once again have the...

Do the ICv2 take into account subscriptions? I honestly don't know. Would that affect anything?
