Nice. A Guild Wars reference. You get a cookie. ^_^

2: Starting with Second Darkness, each Pathfinder WILL have a short, 8-page or so, side quest adventure. The main adventures themselves will be a little bit shorter to make room for this, and to make the main adventures more focused and, frankly, easier for us to develop and edit (the 50 page adventures are not-so-slowly killing Yours Truly).

This is great news, I really prefer my adventures shorter and if it's good for you too that's awesome. And I love side trek adventures. I think a lot of us are having shorter sessions than when we we young...Christ I used to play all night. Now it's usually only 4 and a half hours.

Of course it's GW. Resurrections only take a few seconds of casting there, as opposed to a few thousand GP of diamond dust.

Besides, I'll take my army of Heroes and Henchmen over a Leroy Jenkins situation any day...

Yeah, those first two parts were enthralling reading... you can't leave us with such a Cliffhanger. We need the conclusion to this Epic Trilogy, especially since I was planning to run it next week! =(

Help us Zombie Mike™. You're our only hope!

...If you're all so adamant about Mike being undead, can you at *least* give him the decency of turning him into a dracolich? Seriously, the man deserves at least a *little* respect, and zombies just ain't getting even that much.

In Bloodsworn Vale, you'll find the Fairies Wear Boots...big, sharp pointy boots for kicking humans with.

Yes, thank you Kassil! :)

No! Absolutely not!

Mike is a zombie!

If anyone is the dracolich it's James.

(Mike's a zombie because we WANT paizo to reinvigorate/reinvent zombies and make them cool again in D&D. So cool zombies = cool Mike.)

Liberty's Edge

Zombies have already been reinvented at least a dozen times. While I'm sure Paizo could find something to so to make them cool and new, you'd likely overstress even their creative wit and cause the entire Pathfinder line to degrade as a result.

No zombie Mike! Dracolich or nothing if you want him undead so he can keep writing non-stop!

Maybe we could make him a Zombie just so he could finish his Trilogy, then Rez him, then turn him into a Dracolich? I like that idea. ;)

maybe the grand finale of the Epic side trek was for the adventures to turn a zombie into a dracolich !

You misquoted. This part has nothing to do with the trilogy, it's a diatribe about the culinary properties of gnomish brains.

I am now prepared for the sad possibility that my zombie-written tour de force will be better received than my living-brain-written adventure in PF 14. *le sigh*

Lets get Zombie Mike to make stat blocks for Asterix, Obelix, Cacophonix, Geriatrix

and the rest of the gang. Let him work for that le double paycheck.

By the way at age 7 Asterix is where i first heard of the terms druid, bard, strength potion
and gold sickles to harvest mistletoe.

Man I grew up on Asterix here in Australia... as well as Tintin. I think I wore out the copies of both in my school libraries (both Primary and High School)!

I own a couple of stories of each (Asterix & Tintin) and I even have a Tintin T-Shirt with the cover to "Red Rackham's Treasure" on the back!

I don't hate them, either. I used to hate the language itself, because I was forced to learn it. I didn't want to, I'd rather have started with English, which was not only cooler, but also more useful.

I do hate their beer. ;-)

My French is quite rusty. "They're crazy and I'm their chief"?

Yep. It's something General Strategus ("Nenpeusplus" in the french original) said about his legionnaires in "Asterix and the Goths", when Asterix and Obelix had brought chaos by disguising as legionnaires themselves.

Scarab Sages

Ha! A trip back 15-20 years, when I was a child! Asterix is probably the reason why I like all things in early history (medieval/ancient times) and fantasy.

I just took some time loking at English translations of names on Wikipedia and I find that some look funnier in English, while some are definitely better in French.


Just checking to see if we've been updated on what edition these will be.

Haha.. yes I read that. You guys made some little barely noticeable announcment recently about something to that effect. :D


What levels with this AP span? I can't seem to find that information anywhere.

Also, this will only be 5 books, correct? I seem to remember reading taht AP #4 will start January 2009.
