Anyone know if available to order from FLGS?

Hi, y'all!

All this info is good to know. I'll be running the second edition version shortly for my gaming group. While I have the first edition rules, I never ran it or played in it to any great extent. Thus I shouldn't be suffering any "Which rule is that from?" phenomenon. I hope :)

Now of course if you are able to play multiple games and you are able, and want, to play both then you are lucky. Some of us don't have that luxury and have to decide which game they will run. I am planning on buying the books but I think my group and I will continue with Pathfinder while maybe playing a game of D&D every now and then in the future.

How about you?

Switch back and forth not only between the two systems but the other games as well (e.g., Savage Worlds, FATE, etc.) One of the things my gaming groups have found irritating about Pathfinder and D&D is that it's real hard to have a pickup game with the rule sets. There are just times when you want and/or have the time for a session or two and don't want to spend the hours during the week to make a decent 10th - 15th level PC. Or deal with the long combat sessions. On the other hand, both companies put out great products. So we'll be playing around with them all to see what fits our schedules these next few months.

Give me an idea for a game product you'd REALLY like to see, but WOULDN'T have expected Super Genius to have done. I have a new venue, and new ideas flowing, and new writers coming to me so, give me your Rogue ideas!

I've pretty much made clear what I've always wanted from SGG games and would like from Rogue: a campaign setting.

This new world would bring the various RGG products from Anachronistic Adventurers, classes like the Godling, magic systems (especially spell points), the monsters, etc., into a cohesive whole. Examples of such contained backgrounds include Eberron by WotC, Amethyst Renaissance by Dias Ex Machina, Third Dawn Campaign Setting by Dreamscarred Press, and NeoExodus: A House Divided by Louis Porter Jr. Design, Inc. Heck, you could have some sorta competition to create such a setting among fans, or at least part of it.

Course this "Rogue planet" would be compatible with Pathfinder.

Hope this is interesting enough to warrant a free pdf :)

So, what do you recommend? I'm primarily lookin' at pdfs.

Thanks in advance!

Since it is your birthday Joela why don't you do this, send me your email address and I will send you a PDF copy of NeoExodus: A House Divided campaign setting as a birthday gift. I mean it IS your birthday and you should be getting a gift, instead of spending your money on a gift.

And if you feel the need to thank me, then tell everyone you know who plays Pathfinder to support the 3PPs of Pathfinder. That is thanks enough. Happy birthday.

Oh, wow. Thanks, Louis! That was unexpected *sniff*

Not to derail the thread, but don't even get me started on Fifty Shades of Grey. A BDSM novel in which there is no mention of the concept safewords? No joke - that is just a seriously and gravely irresponsible depiction.

Wait. Really? Talk about major error. That's like not using a d20 in D&D or Pathfinder. Safewords are essential. What was the author's reasoning for that?

Saw the Pathfinder Society's running several tables at Comic-Con. Who's running/participating?

Because Pathfinder is considered backwards-compatible with 3.x stuff, has anyone out there just used the Core rulebook and strictly 3.x for their games (i.e., using the various Complete books, MM, MM2, & MM3, Spell Compendium, modules galore, etc.)? Impression I get is most folks drop their 3.x stuff as soon as their Pathfinder equivalents are available by Paizo or third-party providers with an occasional dip here and there from 3.x.

What were the major ideas of sci-fi published in the latest 60's and 70's? I remember the Cold War and supercomputers but that's about it. Any books you'd recommended written in that era that exemplifies the trends of that time?

Dark Archive

Huh. Interesting but not surprising.

The acquisition has me wondering. I remember NG trying to develop a retro version of 4e a whiles back. It failed miserably, but I wonder if FGG would consider resurrecting it. I'm guessing no, but still have to ask.

Interesting forum post. Has anyone ever dealt with outright blatant homophobia or, more commonly, what I call "locker room" humor in their games, either from the GM, players, or both?

Example from a real game: "Your PC enter the prison section --"

"Oh, fu#@! Don't drop the soap!"
"Haha! Yeah, your elf better watch it in there, Brian. Or he's gonna get the shaft!"
"Yeah, Brian. And none of that mamsy-pansy safe shooting cr&% your character does all the time. These guys mean serious business, what with no women for so many years."
"Still can't tell if elves are male or female. Or how they like to get it."
"Hey, at least they're gettin' some, Mr. 40 year old virgin, either with pu#^# or fu$#@$ by a f+$$^&!"
"Ass#%$%! At least when I'm fu$#*^$, I know it's a lady, not like that b8$#@ you call your [girlfriend/wife/roommate with benefit]!"
"Fu#$ you, f#+$#^!"

Etc. NOTE: Cleaned up the language a bit. I left the group shortly.

Well put. Still not sure of the reasons, though I agree about the perception issue on physical copy versus virtual. Thoughts?

Book publishers are being sued by the Justice Department for allegedly colluding to raise e-book prices. This isn't a case of simple greed.

After a successful Pathfinder RPG Beginner Box one-shot, gonna start a campaign. Setting's Land of the Linnorm. Suggestions on PC races and classes? Not too sure, for example, how the paladin fits in the setting or many of the classes from the APG, especially the alchemist, cavalier, and summoner. Same with the halflings. On the other hand, the samurai and ninja from Advanced combat actually fit in the setting.

This may be a bit of self-advertisement due to my own involvement, but I wanted to let everyone know about Josh Frost's new company and subsequent RPG. He just launched a Kickstarter for the project with Hugo Solis (Butterfrog) as Artist, and myself as a Developer, plus many others. If you want to see a new take on the science-fantasy genre (the fantasy world is inside a dyson sphere!), then give it a look! :)

There is also the fact that 5th level in 3rd edition dnd (and thus pathfinder) pretty closely resembles the absolute peak of human ability. So in E6, the heroes are able to just get past what real human beings can actually do before they start to level off. The fighter is just a little bit tougher then the best soldier on earth, and the wizard is just a little bit smarter then einstein and steven hawking.

What this mean is that things that are rationally a threat remain a threat. It is good for dms that dont like the 'superhero' feel of mid to high levels. Falling off a cliff or into lava is still very deadly, and even magic is still with the bounds of the believable.

True. Although, since I feel that the Pathfinder rules are fairly stable up to 12th level or so...

That's interesting, Kthulhu. Could you elaborate?

Looking forward to this. I have several adult gamers who are not in the mindset to read the 600+ tome that is the Pathfinder Roleplaying Corebook. This intro should be just fine to wet their appetites.

I think we have 11 base classes in the Core Rule book and 6 Base Classes in the Advanced Players Handbook and One more Base class in the Ultimate Magic, and Finally one more Base Class in the Ultimate Combat. We also have 3 more Altertante classes, One in the APG, and the other two in the UC.

This would mean that there are 22 classes to choose from.

Do we need any more classes? Do we have too many? Do we have too few? What do you think?

Thanks

Too many. Three core (melee, caster, expert), with archetypes and alternative classes to fill in the niches would be perfect.

So what should/will Paizo do to respond to and how will Pathfinder be impacted by 5e D&D?

IMO, take a quick gander at the new rules over drinks with their friends over at WotC, then get back to business making the Pathfinder Roleplaying game the best possible game they can.

I would like to see an iconics book that fleshes out their stats at levels 1, 5, 10, and 15. Accompanying each statblock would be a snippet of their history and personality at that time, with explanation to why they have those particular feats, equipment, etc.
