Hmmm...there isn't any mention of it in "Rule of Fear". Since the basis of Darkest Vengeance seems to be the loss of the lodge in Karcau, I would assume that, at the writing of "Rule of Fear", the lodge is no longer in operation. Looks like I need to get "Darkest Vengeance" to get all the details.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion Subscriber

Is the lodge in question, the one (..er, two?) in Caliphas or is it in a different city? If it's in a different city, which one?

How many are there and where?

"Ashes at Dawn" and "Rule of Fear" state that the Havenguard Lunatic Asylum serves as a Lodge. "Seekers of Seekers" says it is the Vodavani Lodge. "Ashes/Rule" makes no mention of Vodavani. "Seekers" makes no mention of Havenguard. Both are supposedly in Caliphas. So.... which is it?

Is there a lodge in Lepistadt? With the University there, one would think the society would have some sort of presence there as well.

Is there a side cut-away view of The Pale Tower anywhere?

So I see.

There are two types of "dumb" people in this world- dumb people who are too dumb to know they're dumb and dumb people who are smart enough to know they're dumb. I would like to think that I fall into the second category and as such, will quietly exit stage-left before I make any more of a fool of myself.

sykoholic, you sound like a strong atheist. You assert that there is no god. I, on the other hand, am more of an agnostic atheist.

Actually, I consider myself an agnostic atheist for much the same reasons you consider yourself one. I "believe" there is no "god" but I don't really know for certain. I'm convinced there isn't but being convinced and actually knowing are two different things.

When people who do believe in god ask me why I don't believe, I just tell them that I simply don't find it to be believable.

You're going to have to clarify/elaborate on that one. I'm not understanding the difference between the two.

Atheism is not the lack of a belief. Rather, it is the belief of a lack. As an antheist, I BELIEVE there is no higher power. I also BELIEVE there is no afterlife. I am as devout in my beliefs as anyone else is in theirs and my beliefs can be offended, just like anybody else's.

As far as I know, there is no official or recognized "Church of Atheism". Atheist are simply seperate individuals who share a common belief. There is no organization or institution that regulates/dictates what or how we believe. So, at least in that sense, atheism is not a religion. It is a belief system however, and one could say it is spirituality rather than religion since it is personal/individual-based rather than communal/organization-based.

Just my take on the original subject.

40 figure capacity, cut out size: 1" x 1", 1 layer
56 figure capacity - cut out size: 1" x 2", 2 layers - (larger figures)
80 figure capacity - cut out size: 1" x 1", 2 layers

The boxes themselves are hard, sturdy, plastic. Each layer of foam consists of three pieces: a thin top pad/cover, the divider, and the bottom. Between the two layers is a piece of heavy cardstock with a loop of ribbon attached to each end. The loop allows for easily lifting the upper layer out of the box to access the lower layer. Since the 40 figure case is only one layer, it obviously won't have this.

I own about 15 of these things and absolutely swear by them. My only complaint is that the divider and bottom of each layer don't come attached to each other. When removing a figure, if some pointy bit catches on the foam, you can pull the whole divider out of place. Nothing a couple spots of white glue can't remedy though.

Well... central Washington is in the process of getting hit again. How are things looking on Paizo's side of the Cascades?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion Subscriber

The whole state of Washington (yes... believe it or not, there really IS more in Washington State than just Seattle) got hit. I live in the central portion and it looks just like Cosmo's pic... minus the trees, of course. What I would really like to know is if snow can make it over the mountains, why can't rain make it over here as well?

Mummies and Vampires will prolly be covered in "Classic Horrors Revisited" but how about a book covering the other "intelligent" undead: liches, wights, ghouls, wraiths, etc? "Classic Undead Revisited", anyone?

Any updates on these? The store still says "June Pre-Order" and we're now into September.

Some of us Necro-boarders are now exploring other options to draw the demon lord's favor. We were considering a virgin sacrifice but have had a great deal of difficulty acquiring a suitable virgin... and despite the good intentions behind my suggestion, I have been informed that a "new-in-box" inflatable love doll is NOT an acceptable substitute.

Seriously though, that would be pretty freakin' cool. "Ravenloft" done Pathfinder style in a six part Adventure Path.

There's also "Into the Haunted Forest" that would work fairly well for younger kids. It's based in the Arthell Forest which is also in Darkmoon Vale so you could work it into a Falcon's Hollow campaign or even use it as a starting point for one.

Best of all, it's only $5.00.

According to the "Demon Lords of Golarian" chapter in "Descent into Midnight", Orcus doesn't have much of a place in the PF setting.

Orcus MAKING a place for himself in the PF setting would make for a pretty cool AP though. (hin, hint)

This might seem like something of a no-brainer but there needs to be some discussion about the government. In such a "wretched hive of scum and villany", who actually rules? Does anyone rule? Is the ruling power a single individual or a council of some sort, possibly made up of the major crimelords and cult leaders? Is their rule absolute? Are they a puppet of some faction or organization?

Who, if anyone, is in control in Kaer Maga?

Goodman Games is lost to 4E

Not necessarily. A publisher can support 4E and other systems but not with the same brand/product line. So while the "Dungeon Crawl Classics" line may be lost to 4E, Goodman is still free to create a new line/brand and support Pathfinder through it. Whether or not they actually do this remains to be seen.

*edit*
Note: That is my understanding of the GSL anyways. I could very easily have it all wrong.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion Subscriber

Uhm... maybe I'm not understanding things but the question of "who was killed" is throwing me off. If they don't know who was killed, how do they know anybody actually was killed?

Or do you mean the deceased is a complete stranger that nobody knows or can identify?

To my understanding, Clark doesn't want to do more 3.5 products due to lack of interest in 3.5 from distributors and retailers. Paizo, however, doesn't seem to have such problems with their 3.5 products. I was just thinking that if these 3.5 adventures were released as part of an established and recognized Paizo brand (ie: GameMastery) then distributors and retailers WOULD be interested in them and thus Clark would be more inclined to publish them rather than sitting on them while playing the "waiting game" with the GSL.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion Subscriber

When 4E was announced, the market for 3.5 products died almost immediately as distributors and retailers no longer wanted products for an "obsolete" game. At that time, Necromancer has three adventures ready for printing but had to cancel them. These adventures are now collecting dust as Necromancer waits for an acceptable revision of the GSL.

Would it be possible for Paizo to release these "lost" Necromancer adventures through the "Game Mastery" line and turn the line into something similar to what White Wolf did with "Sword & Sorcery Studios"?

The Game Mastery line presently consists of "neutral" accessories. Paizo could publish Necromancer's 3.5 adventures under a "re-created" Game Mastery Adventures line. This way, Necromancer could continue to produce 3.x material but under Paizo's label which distributors and retailers would recognize and want. Since these adventures would be Game Mastery products rather than Pathfinder products, a license wouldn't be needed (beyond the OGL) and the adventures wouldn't be linked to the Pathfinder setting and thus remain setting neutral, like all of NG's adventures.

Currently, GameMastery products seem to be few and far between. I don't see why Paizo couldn't slip one of Necromancer's 3.5 adventure into the production/release schedule every once in a while. Paizo already intends to do Necromancer Games' 4E products which, in accordance with the GSL, will require an entirely new product line to be created. Why not just use an existing product line to make new Necromancer 3E products as well?

Of course, its probably not that simple and there's probably more involved than I'm aware of but it's just sorta my own personal theory/thought/idea of how Necromancer could get out of "idle" and back into action.

My wallet seems to have taken a liking to the abuse. The mere mention of Paizo will send it into a fit of screaming "Whip me! Beat me! It hurts so good!". It can be rather embarassing when it happens in public.

Nope. It's just that, now that the Axebeak, Giant Slug, and the Leucrotta were included in the list, the thread changed from "Classic Monsters not in the 4E MM" to "Personal favorite monsters not in the 4E MM".

I guess its a matter of personal definition regarding the term "classic". Obviously, not everyone is going to agree on what is a "classic" and what is not.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion Subscriber

Oops. I see Mimic was already listed.

I'm not finding Horned Devil in the 4E MM. Am I just missing it or is it another one for the list?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion Subscriber

There are no Bombardier, Boring, Rhinoceros, Stag, or Water Beetles. There is a Fire Beetle but its nothing like the "classic" Fire Beetle.

I don't recall seeing a Giant Centipede either which I find odd considering the card for the Dungeon of Dread mini had 4E stats

Also missing are:

Axe Beak
Centaur
Cockatrice (yet there's a mini for it in the upcoming set)
Ghast
Giant Frog
Giant Slug
