i noticed that the 15th chapter is not in one of the PDFs.

does that mean it will not be available in PDF form, only the hardcover book?

or will the PDF be added later?

That's correct. The bonus chapter is for those who purchased the hardcover and thus will only be in print.

okay good well i got the pdf/print bundle so i should be good!

I'll be honest. This is a bit of a let down. I was hoping for a single player game (like NWN) but instead we get a game like D&D: Online.

I'd suggest you check out the blods. Pathfinder online will have very little in common with DnD online, save being massively multiplayer

It is a closer relative to starwars gallaxies or Eve

Guild Wars 2 could be a game changer. I am paying attention to these ArenaNet guys. GW1 was great and I only did the PVE stuff.

I really want to do a Mac version. I'm all Mac, all the time at home. I'm a total Apple fanboi.

The critical path runs through the middleware. There are no good cross-platform options that do Mac well yet. The software we're planning to use does not yet have a Mac client.

On the other hand, it's more likely that one will be available by the time the game is ready to ship than it has been in the past. Apple's successes make it easier to justify spending money on Mac development.

There's also always the option of doing something like the EVE port using WINE, CIDER, and support from a company like Transgaming.

So it's not a question of will, or a question of interest. It's just a technical question of "if it's possible, we'll do it".

RyanD

well i will stay tuned, but won't be interested in PFO until MAC is supported. until then i will be playing diablo or wow.

Grand Lodge

i thought the big wait of the summer was going to be Prometheus. now i know it is going to be Rappan Athuk! since the project closes 2-july, when would the estimating shipping date be (approximately)? will the PDFs be available immediately?

noice!

anything special you can say about the hardcover vs faux-leather books?

Grand Lodge

faux-leather bound sounds nicer than hardcover to me. anyone think differently?

just curious, what is special about the battle map in the $250 pledge? is it customized for Rappan Athuk in any way or one of those blank ones?
how is it different from the faux-leather which apparently includes:
"29+ miniature-scale battlemaps (detailing 10+ separate locations) provided for iconic locations and key encounter areas"

Grand Lodge

not thrilled about being a kickstarter but i will reserve complete judgement until i see it posted.

basically was hoping for something sooner than the clock is saying, as it sounded from the blog posts that things were nearing completion.

but it is what it is, i guess.

Grand Lodge

is this thread still alive? i for one would love to have a pathfinder version of this great adventure/setting/campaign.

Grand Lodge

Just downloaded this. The book is great so far, however I have to use Adobe Acrobat to view. I normally read PDF's with Preview under Mac OS X Lion but the formatting is all screwed up when viewing this. I hope they fix it please!!!!

i normally hate dragon-races but the fluff on the ones in AE are great. i plan on using them / converting them when the advanced race guide comes out.

i initially don't plan on using them AE style with the evolved levels, etc. but who knows how it will pan out.

Grand Lodge

this is an interesting thread and good work by all.

however it would be cool to see a 25pt buy version of this thread as i'd argue that most casual games use something closer to this.

-----------

some of the builds i see focus on feats to maximize damage at 10th level, which is the main purpose, however no one would actually use these builds as they have no vision for levels 11 to 20.

one of the stipulations be, "would i actually play this?" meaning in the normal course of play your PC might actually look like this at 10th level.

Grand Lodge

careful with your swift actions in your builds. on rounds you plan to be swinging the sword you want to use arcane strike which eats up your swift for the round. its definitely worth it on full attack.

Yours only works if 3.5 material is available.

True, however the Core build in my mind would be:

Fighter 2/Wiz 5/EK 10/Wiz 3 (in this order)
final BAB +16 (4 iterative attacks)
access 9th level spells
key feats: arcane strike, up to great cleave, up to critical mastery, up to greater trip.

If I'm too far away to be swinging my elven curve blade, I toss out a stilled scorching ray.

ECB is a two-handed weapon. Not sure you can use with that build and still cast spells. Mine uses a single scimitar.

ahhh, never mind. you said stilled spell. either way, i prefer the scimitar and not waste the feat on still spell.

Grand Lodge

If you allow 3.5, my fav is:

Fighter2/Wiz4/Spellsword1/Abjurant Champion3/EK10

+18 BAB and access to 9th level spells. some fairly good special abilities in spellword and abj champ too.

Otherwise when Magus comes out and is hopefully better than current state, I would go that way.

Grand Lodge

i just mentioned this in the other thread but i'd like to see, 'hand of the apprentice' ability from wizard universalist school implemented as an arcana. that would just be cool for this class.

Grand Lodge

- enjoy spell combat a lot.
- don't see the point in spellstrike.
- i like that the spellbook is wizard flavored.
- come on, give the class either combat casting or eschew materials for free; prefer combat casting.
- arcanas using swift actions need some work due to arcane strike.
- suggest one of the arcanas should be like 'hand of the apprentice' from universalist wizard school.
- i would be very interested in an expanded spell list though or maybe implement arcane schools like wizards.
- fighter training is a bit weak as it locks out several fighter feat trees, suggest it be somewhere in between current state and EK diverse training.

fix that stuff and i'm sold. in some areas it actually beats the fighter2/wizard4/spellsword1/abjurant champion3/eldritch knight10 build but i know you weren't trying to. :)
