Where the dungeon ends, another adventure begins! Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Ultimate Campaign takes you on a guided tour through the parts of the game that happen between monster attacks and quests for ancient artifacts.

  • Rules for building up a kingdom, including construction and technological advancements, governing your people, and more.

Ultimate Campaign Review

4/5

My first impressions of Ultimate Campaign were pretty positive, and now that I've had time to read through the whole thing, I can honestly say that this is a must-have for any campaign that goes beyond the scope of the dungeon crawl. If you're looking for guidelines and rules for all the things that happen outside the dungeon itself, this book is an incredible buy.

Ring Side Report-A Review of Ultimate Campaign

4/5

Originally posted at www.throatpunchgames.com, a new idea everyday!

Book- Ultimate Campaign

Publisher-Paizo

Price – ~$40

TL;DR- Tables and Rules Everywhere!-83%

Basics- Ultimate Campaign focuses on the rules around the rest of the Pathfinder RPG. This book is more "meta" then most books. The book starts with a chapter on how to make characters; not how to make stats, but how to build a story into your characters. Next the book gives a chapter on what you can do in your down time with ideas ranging from building businesses to creating organizations. After that is a chapter on different rules systems covering ideas such as bargaining to taxation in your game. The final chapter is how to build a kingdom and mass combat.

Mechanics or “Crunch”-This book is crunch-tastic! If you want rules regarding all the extra stuff in your game, this is it. Want rules for an honor system? It's here. Want to start a kingdom? There is a whole chapter on how to do the rules for it. It covers a lot of ground. Some of these rules are kind of reprints as these rules were covered in different adventure paths, but that's not necessarily bad as the rules have gotten a polish since their last printing. 5/5

Story or “Fluff”-This section might not fit the best here. This book sets out to be a rules book. It's pretty system neutral as you're just running the Pathfinder/3.5 system somewhere and these rules cover the "in between" stuff. You don't need a lot of story. However chapter one is how to build a character. It does an excellent job of describing what stuff you could include in your character. If you're George R.R. Martin, you don't need this. However, I have a friend who loves Pathfinder, but when presented with character generation, he freezes. This chapter gives some good fluff for your characters and suggests traits for you to take for all the fluff. Heck, if you want to completely randomize your PCs, this chapter gives tables and tables of random stuff to make your new PC. Where the fluff is needed, it's done well, but don't expect it throughout the book. 4/5

Execution-This book is the standard Paizo quality. The book is a nice hard cover with well put together pages. The layout lacks a bit. There are pages after pages of tables or rules or columns of text. Nothing brakes up much of what you're reading, so it gets a little boring. It's important rules, if you want them, but they get very dry, very quick. 3.5/5

Final Thoughts-Unlike a base book, this is a one copy at the table max book. This is something you might want to get, skim through, and then give to your GM while telling him which of these rules you want in the game. It's a repeat of many of the rules systems explored in the adventure paths, which isn't bad because the rules do get a little touch up here and there. However, if you want a dungeon crawling game where you find some monsters, kill them, and take gear, this isn't for you. If you want to do some crazy game where you explore a mist filled continent via random hex crawl where you establish a kingdom while maintaining your family's honor, waging a war for the throne, marrying into different family lines, and dealing with the crushing shame of your fathers half fiend lineage, then YES you will need this book. 83%


Excellent product adaptable to other games

4/5

After thumbing through the book I decided to pick it up. I think the systems in the book are really interesting and I'm actually adapting them to my 4e game.

The book is chock full of fluffy stuff but stuff tied with mechanics so as a DM you get an idea of what type of rewards to apply to a player when they have a background or have own a business. The mass combat section is pretty neat as well, and with a little tweaking I can adapt that as well.


Fairly good.

3/5

This is a pretty decent fluff book. However, I wish the price was $29.99 instead. The paper quality used is substantially weaker than previous books. There are useful things to be found within for the GM who is not too busy to come up with himself or herself but nothing is overwhelming in here. Reminds me of the numerous volumes Wotc produced for 4E.


Ultimate Campaign Under Review!

5/5

This is definitely a homerun for Paizo. This is definitely one of their best products they have put out in a while. I actually gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars, but it is still good enough to give it 5 here.

Does anyone think story feats will get used? I'm a GM so I can't see using them much unless it was an NPC with the party.

I'm not sure player will go for them. They use precious feat that players probably won't want to use on these. Some of the benefits are nice but not in place of a feat the player needs. Maybe at higher levels they might be taken once you have the feats you want. Personally I'd like to see story feats at 1st level in the games I run. I think I might just allow players to take one, if they want a second (after the first is complete) they use feat.


So it should be out when I get back from classes at noon around here? And thursday is a holliday. Sweet.

Good point. I might let players take a story feat instead of the 2 traits at PC creation.

That is precisely what I am thinking of doing myself in the next game I run. I'm thinking they can take a story feat or take two traits. Some of my players will find the story feats more interesting than the traits and so will take them without fail.

Many of those feats are extremely good. If your player wants to take one, then it is the GM's responsibility to make sure they get used. Example: Stronghold.

Stronghold (Story)

You seek to build a bastion against which your enemies shall break like water against the rocks.

Prerequisites: You must have the Leadership feat and must lead at least 10 combat-capable followers (such as fighters or rangers).

Benefit: You can spend a move action to give battle orders to your troops, granting creatures under your command within 60 feet your choice of a +1 morale bonus on attack rolls, a +1 dodge bonus to AC, or a +1 bonus on a single type of saving throw. All creatures must receive the same benefit. You can’t use this benefit on allies not under your command. This is a language-dependent, mind-affecting effect.

Goal: Build or capture a stronghold capable of housing a force of at least 200 troops, and staff it with at least 100 combat-capable soldiers (or the equivalent) under your command. You must also provide food and water sufficient to survive at least a 6-month siege and a gold
reserve sufficient for at least 6 months of wages if your troops require pay.

Completion Benefit: Your battle order bonuses improve to +2, and the range of your orders increases to 120 feet. In addition, you can give two different orders to your troops. For example, you could grant your archers +2 on attack rolls while your front line gains a +2 bonus to AC.


Indeed, this sounds like the sort of bonus feat I'd give to players. I do not think they would choose those by themselves, at least at lower levels.

This sort of great feat is why I'd like parallel feat slots. Some slots for combat, slots for this sort of feat or Craft specialization.

Good thing you can't take this feat at lower levels; you need to be 9th level because it requires Leadership. ^_~

At 7th level you're taking Leadership as your feat making 9th level the earliest one could take the Stronghold (Story) feat (assuming you also met the "10 combat-capable followers" requirement as well).

Reread my quote. I said you need to be 9th level to select Stronghold (aka "this feat"). The reason you have to be 9th level is that you've got to wait until 7th level to select Leadership.

Not having my book yet (Damm! you Amazon),I always figured that story feats world be used as rewards feats to players kind of like NWN1 and 2.

That was one of the fun things about Traveller. Character generation was a game in itself, complete with risks.

Speaking of which, I'm waiting on my Traveller 5 core book (shipped) and Ultimate Campaign (shipped)... and classes end Thursday. It should be a good week :)

I am planning on getting this at 7th via Noble Scion, whom gets Leadership for free at 2nd level (which is a 7th level character level) so frees up his 7th level Feat for Stronghold (Story). Sorry for the confusion but you can indeed get both at 7th level if you have the followers already lined up through previous roleplaying.

Irrelevant to the argument, whether the customer knows whats best for the product line. That wasn't the other gentleman's argument- it was what the customer WANTED. And in this case wanting more modules was what was wanted.....just like gamers wanting AP's and they got it and so on.

Specific to the context of this discussion, more modules is what _you_ wanted. It is not, in fact, what sales tell us they wanted, what retailers told us they wanted, or really much of a groundswell among the fans in general.

More PFS scenarios? Definitely. But more modules? The way you talk about it here suggests there's some king of massive groundswell for this, when in fact this is not now, and never really has been, the case.

carmachu wrote:


Instead we got something not really wanted- longer modules that are less likely to be dropped into a game, and released on a longer schedule that's not helpful. Generic is what some folks wanted- which was why Dungeon magazine was very popular(ell besides 3-5 adventures at a great price).

I suggest waiting until the first one comes out before worrying too much about the format change. The modules are longer, sure, but a lot of the page content is taken up with stuff that will enhance the adventure without necessarily making it a lot longer to play.

Likewise on the "genericness" of the new adventures. Check them out as they come out, and I think you'll be surprised by the ease with which you'll be able to use them in a variety of campaigns.

should I be worried that the book hasn't made to my house yet when it was shipped on the 20th and there is no tracking data?

Liberty's Edge

I've been waiting anxiously for this, knowing it releases tomorrow.

Then I checked my downloads on a whim and saw it there, not realizing as a subscriber I got it last week. I could have been reading it for a week!


Ah, timezones. How frustrating you are.

It's 1:43 am here, and it just say "PDF available today". I just realized that it'll be midnight Paizo time before it's available. Oops.

Probably not. You can check the order and see the estimated delivery times. Packages are usually within those times, but they are quite often at the upper end in my experience (it probably doesnt help that it's a 'business day' estimate so weekends make it seem much longer).

Paizo Customer Service generally wait a week or so outside the expected delivery times before they send out a replacement copy, just in case the delivery estimate is off for some reason.

So what is "Paizo Time" anyway, what's their timezone?

Back to the thrilling topic of abbreviations, I personally think UCo and UCa is the way to go.

It's the shortest way to distinguish the two, and the easiest to remember. Shortness + Ease of use = It's a winner!


I believe it's PDT. So with DST in effect, it's GMT -7.

UCamp has more humorous misunderstanding potential.


so in theory that means only minutes till the PDF releases, I'm almost tempted to buy a PDF copy just to get my hands on it a day/hours before my physical copy arrives at my local store. (hopefully arrives)

So much good press this book is getting, absolutely maddening to wait for it, I wanna read as much as possible before tomorrow evening's session. :D


Flipping through this a little bit before crashing for the night, and I'm definitely liking it so far. I suspect my current character is going to try to found an X-Men style adventuring school, if the GM allows the downtime rules.

The next campaign I'm GM'ing is a refluffed Kingmaker, so the Kingdom Building and Mass Combat are definitely going to be useful as well. Well worth the price.


Yay, got my copy. Skimming through it now.

I wonder how long it will take someone to create a website or app for generating random backgrounds...

But then you have to edit all the posts on the boards written before UCamp and that used UC to mean Ultimate Combat ;-)

Are you sure it shipped on the 20th? I got a NOTICE on the 20th that it would ship on or around Friday the 24th.... and remember Monday was a national holiday so nothing moved that day. I wouldn't worry yet.

For all o'y'all complaining about Amazon: if you want it as soon as possible, you pretty much have to subscribe. You may not get as much of a discount, but IMO the free pdf, early access to the .pdf, and guaranteed shipment on the release make up for it. Amazon typically and repeatedly doesn't get it shipped out till later--there are exceptions, but this happens a lot. Part of it, IIRC, is that Paizo ships it to the Amazon distribution warehouses, and THEN from there it gets shipped to you, so Amazon just puts their release date forward giving time for it to get to the distributor first.

If you prefer Amazon by all means, more power to you. But your choice is between having cheaper book with cheaper/no shipping (Amazon), OR having the book as immediately as possible and with a free, early release pdf (Paizo sub), but you cannot have both.

Of course, I pre-ordered my copy from Barnes and Noble.com and they say the book ships in July ...


I glanced through the PDF this morning. Something caught my eye about the new downtime rules. If I remember them correctly (don't have it in front of me), one of the prebuilt buildings available is a "bureau." And among the "teams" you can hire to staff your bureau is ... "bureaucrats."

So ... in between adventures, your fearsome slayer of dragons can run a branch office of the Golarion DMV.

Amazon E-mailed me this morning and upped my shipping date from June 13th to June 4th. Oh happy days.


It's silly but the thing I'm most excited about after reading through the PDF is the Reckless trait. Finally a simple way to get Acrobatics as a class skill :D

1) What are the rules for Corruption/Crime/Law/Lore/Productivity and Society values on the Kingdom Sheet? I'm unable to find any rule on "Kingdoms and War" chapter.

2) On the Mass Combat Chapter: How are armies trained? How long do they take to create? Is there a limitation on amount/type/size of armies a kingdom can have regarding its size and/or buildings on a settlement? (I.E, Can a starting kingdom have 3 gargantuan armies roaming the land, provided it can afford the BP maintenance?)

3) Is there a mechanic-related reason i would like to create a settlement in Terrains like Caverns, Jungle, Marsh or Mountain? They seem awfull expensive in Preparation Cost/Time compared to Plains/Forest etc.


Corruption, Crime, and Law are from the settlement rules which I think are in the Gamemaster Guide.
And also here.

As far as I understand it, the only limitation for your armies is the maintainance cost in BP. The size and level of an army doesn't seem to make any real difference, it all comes down to the CR. A small elite troop is just the same as a massive horde of low level warriors.


Have this as my first subscription purchase, but it's still showing as pending on my account.... sent a e-mail to customer service..but no response yet.

Anyone from Paizo able to assist?


So far I'm loving the book, but I have a quick question:

In the Terrain Improvements section it states that any improvement that has an (*) next to it can be built with other improvements. Does this mean that you can only have one improvement without an (*) and all the rest can have them or does that mean that if I build a mine I would not be able to build anything else there?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I think it means that you can only have a single non-starred improvement in any hex, but as many starred ones as you wish.


Also can you have improvements in the same hex as a settlement?


I'm struggling to see how the Buildings and organisations rules in downtime and the Reputation and Fame rules in Campaign systems work with previously published rules from The Factions Guide and Innersea Magic? Is anyone planning to use this with those books?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I am kind of disappointed about the explanations for how crafting feats should affect WBL. We are given some clearer guidelines (a crafter should get about a 25% benefit over normal WBL in comparison to a non-crafter, crafting for your party members should come out of your own WBL oO ), but again no context at all as to why this should be so, neither in terms of lore nor rules.

Seriously, by RAW rules text, there is no limitation at all (aside from available time and money) as to how much a magic item crafter can do for himself and his party members, so this limitation seem completely arbitrary. If there is to be such a limitation (something I personally think would actually balance the crafting feats very well), then there needs to be actual rules text and lore justification as to the reasons. I guess that is the problem if you as a developer can't actually change the rules in the CRB anymore.

As it is, it kinda feels for me like a child being talked down to by his parent, in the way of "It is so because I say so!".
