I tried to add that subscription on to my existing subs and I get the issue of it asking for which volume I want to start with, but then defaulting back to Druma. Keeps running home to momma. LOL

Who specifically?

Watcher-Lord Ulthun got out alive to Absalom, it's mentioned in the Absalom stuff.

Keren and Zae

Also it seems the situation for lastwall ends up being much worse than book 4 of tyrants grasp seems to indicate at least

I mean, the situation already seemed very dire to me

** spoiler omitted **

Also it seems that Vellumis may have not survived book 4 as well. So Lastwall is looking a little worse for wear.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I'd find it hilarious if the final cover art contains some kind of spoiler and that's why they're holding it back.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Does anyone have any notes or spoilers from this panel? I didn't see it among the streamed videos. Thanks.

So to summarize, the official rules are:

* Spells targeting yourself always bypass SR

* Someone else casting a spell on you from the necromancy school proper needs to overcome SR

* Someone else casting a biomancy spell, referring to that subset of AD&D/5e/PF2e's necromancy school that briefly became conjuration [healing] in 3.5 and PF1e, only needs to deal with SR if the spell says they need to

* Dhampir and other things with negative energy affiliation have to deal with the obol limiting their healing

And as two common sense houserules, but houserules nonetheless:

* The obols ward against whichever of positive and negative energy harms you

* Inflict spells used to heal always bypass SR

So overall, a dhampir would still be a bit more difficult by RAW, but at least if you're the one playing healer, it shouldn't be as bad.

Razar,

I decided to give my players who want to play a dhampir the racial feat "Life-dominant soul" for free. Granted they only get half the worth of healing, but it negates the issues that are brought up by obol.

Finally, as a tiny bit of trivia, Kharmione Nyx, the hustler from the article introduction, is a character in a Planescape game I have run. You can see what she looks like here.

Thanks Mikhail! I loved that quote, thought it was hilarious.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

It would appear that playing a dhampir character would be more difficult than usual, due to the fact that they need negative energy to be healed.

Spoiler:
An obol harmlessly absorbs an amount of negative energy equal to double the character’s number of Hit Dice from any given source or attack (or each round, for ongoing environmental effects).

With the terrible weather we're having in Washington, thanks for this. I get to just bundle up on my couch and read, instead of trying to shovel out my driveway. LOL!

Being someone from the puget sound area... I can say that It might actually be Baba Yaga. Had to remove over a foot of snow from my truck to go rescue my wife who was stuck last night. I saw many snow golemns on the way. And it is snowing right now as I speak.

It's the same over here on the eastside of the state. I think Baba Yaga is trying to turn Washington into Irrisan. Brrrrrr!

Woo Hoo! I got something to hunker down and read while this crappy weather continues! Thanks Paizo!

Just one thing that is bothering me with this particular scenario...

Why would the paladins of Vigil, the paladins supposed to keep watch on the Virlych, would not believe that the Tyrant has woken again ?

What I've gleaned from various panels, that the paladins in Vigil are infiltrated by the Whispering Way. So they maybe trying to sow discord.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Now has it been about ten years since the Inner Sea World Guide? Because does this AP issue deal with Rosler's Coffer at that time being abandoned. Also will we get an appearance of The Red Warden, the red reaver that took up residence there. I know, I want all the answers early. LOL!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

There's one in Hell's Rebels. They visit the city of Vyre. It's volume #99, Dance of the Damned


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Thanks James! I had missed that part.

I have a question for the powers that be. Can the people within Xin-Edasseril see the world outside of the crystal dome and can people in Varisia see into it? So they are able to observe one another, but not be able to interact.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

The Whispering Tyrant whispers "Your time will come". Muhahaha!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

So we've got a fellow player who wants to play an investigator. However he would like to have him have access to alchemist's bombs. We've been brain-storming over how to make it work and not be over-powered. He would take the rogue talent: Bomber, which gives him a number of bombs per day equal to his INT modifier. He gives up being able to take any mutagen discoveries. Where we come into issues is how to marriage studied combat, studied strike and his bomb damage. The feat Ranged study was one solution, but it leads us back to the same issues. Would it be overpowered to give him studied combat bonuses on only melee attacks and then give him only the studied strike damage on his bombs.

Any word on if we will get PF1 info on Arcadia ?

Part 5 will have a quest to Arcadia, to find a weapon made by Arodon. It's to include a double gazetteer on Arcadia.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

James, thanks for the bit of lore! No need to worry about it, I'm sure you'll put it in the next AP. I'm just excited about it!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Spoiler:
So this adventure ties in directly with the Tyrant's Grasp and the return of the Whispering Tyrant. Can anybody tell me how the first seal was destroyed?

I do hope that they are not planning to do any of the "redemption" BS for any of the Runelords.

From what we know about Thassilonian culture from the earlier APs, all seven Runelords were COMPLETE MONSTERS and there is a certain magnitude of evil from which there is no coming back from.

Consider that Ileosa Arabasti was recreating the ritual that Sorshen used to insure her eternal beauty - a sacrifice requiring the lives of hundreds of people.

You do realize that ** spoiler omitted ** is considered possibly redeemable? :D

LOL! Yes, yes he is.

Subscription Update: The instability of the website over the last two weeks of August has also affected our internal shipping system and we are just beginning to ship August subscription items. During this downtime our warehouse staff staged and prepared as many new release shipments as possible and are hard at work shipping orders as quickly as possible. I have put the end shipping estimate at Friday, September 7th and will update here if that changes.

Thanks for the update Sara. Those pesky gremlins!

Hey there,
With the Magelance archetype do you believe it would be balanced to swap out Phantasmal Steed for an actual animal companion (horse). I wanted to make a magus have a more cavalier feel to it. Would it make it more balanced to have the animal companion be at a -4 level. Thanks.

In more positive news, and as a peep from the Behind-the-Scenes department:

Just had a chat about how to do the Player's Guide's Table of Contents, so it's VERY close to being out of edit and still 100% on schedule to release when we planned, so folks don't need to worry about it being late. It'll come out, as have the vast majority of these supplements, just before the street date of the first volume in the Adventure Path.

As far as Players' Guides go, it's one of the smaller ones. Not really any new rules subsystems needed for this campaign. We are, however, reprinting the maps of Varisia and the four major cities of the region in here—the adventures go all over the place and assume the players and GMs are familiar enough with those locations that we don't reprint the maps in the adventures themselves in order to save space, but wanted to have them out there for folks to reference easy as needed.

And thanks for the continued patience, all!

What! No rules subsystem for awesomeness. Must be slippin'. LOL!

Any links to the Gen-Con spoilers available for those of us waiting on the other side of the planet?

Yep, look in the General discussion tab under the Adventure Path forum. There you'll find a thread about GenCon AP news. I posted a link to the video. They go into quite of few spoilers for both RTotRL and Tyrant's Grasp. It looks to be exciting!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

We need Runelords now! We have no patience(it's a sin) ;-)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

James, you don't have to worry about any of that. I'm super excited about the next two Adventure Paths!

It should be the one posted from Friday, and it's 9:05:03 long. They haven't gotten to cutting them down by panel-wise. And the AP panel starts at about the 6:11:?? mark. Also there was a panel on Sunday, Paizo 2018 and beyond where they went into the AP's for both Pathfinder and Starfinder a little more, but I don't remember them revealing anything more. Except that next July we will be getting a whole lotta product. LOL!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Oh yes! If you get on to Paizo's Twitch channel, they have a panel from the 1st day that covers AP's. It's Daigle and Lundeen and they discuss Return of the Runelords and Tyrant's Grasp. They even hint at the release of information concerning the 1st 2e AP.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

From page 70: Velvet Blade

Treacherous Blade class ability should probably replace Stalker class ability, as the Velvet Blade's Studied Socialite ability makes the Stalker ability redundant.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

No, it just gives a short description of him and his career as a smuggler.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I've got a couple of questions. First off, does Cyricus accompany the PC's from their rendezvous to Zimar? Second if he does, could he be used as a plot device to help the PC's get into the city, as they or at least some of them pose as Sentinals and he as their prisoner. It didn't really elaborate on this and I just know that some player with come up with that plan or something like it. LOL!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I just got done reading through Nidal, Land of Shadows and I'd love for an intrigue/clandestine style AP set there. I know we are in the midst of an intrigue-style AP with WftC. But Nidal seems like such a fun place to visit, not so much fun to live there. LOL!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

James! I got a rules question for you. Do you follow them or just make them up as you go? ;-)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Sharaya, I also suffer from this malady. Good to hear an update on it. When it does get resolved, will you guys shoot us an e-mail or will it be posted to the site? Thanks again for the info

FedoraFerret,

Have you had a chance to look through the Anti-Heroes Handbook. It's got some social and vigilante talents and an archetype in it. I like the sound of the social talent, Beginner's Luck. It allows you to keep the +20 bonus when you use a vigilante talent while in social identity. It's got some caveats, but they seem to be role-playable.
