Compilations in general would be awesome. Something akin to what was done with the Shackled City AP would kick ass.

Contributor

I'd like to see an awesome strategy game. Something along the lines of Arkham Horror or Descent, but based on Golarion.


Paizo: Make it good, rather than fast, whatever you do.

We all have seen enough shoddy made RPG products just to get them fast to the market, and I´m fed up with that. Quality regarding the content as well as the rest - like layout, thorough lectorate, art, production values. I´m also a fan of hard cover books, as they are generally more durable (still got most AD&D1 orange-spine hardcovers in near-mint condition - even one copy of OA with all pages still firmly attached). Did I mention that I´m a bibliophile anyways? (Much to my wifes regret...)

If you thought the boxed set was a pain in the butt then you're really going to think my idea is crazy:

"The Campaign In A Box" - A series of linked adventures, character folios, fold out maps, PFRPG Core, Every Paper Mini you'd need and a set of dice. In short everything you'd need to run a campaign from 1 to done. Insane? Likely. Expensive? Probably. Awesome? Definitely.

Other than that though...

PFRPG - Deluxe Character Sheets

An Isle of Adventure - Essentially a combined adventure/setting book with everything a DM needs to let his PCs run free in a sandbox (Isle of Dread style) rather than completely fleshed out adventures but a series of interesting set pieces that a GM could flesh out.

Counters/Paper Minis.

More Planar Stuff.

Flip-mats and Map-packs that tie in with AP/Modules.

Outsource the psionics to Dreamscarred Press, that would rock.

Paizo Presents: Ropers and Tojanidas hardcover for 50 USD... oh wait, wrong company.

The problem is that it is no longer in print...

Maybe a 3rd party could do something.

But you guys haven't disappointed me so far and you have talent oozing out of your walls.

So I would be happy to wait for a well thought out quality product if you could get past your worries.

2) I think I want a Paizo take on psionics, but I'm a bit nervous based on how I see Paizo folk (I won't name names) commenting on what psionics is, and what's wrong w/ it as it stands.

Trust me, those unnamed Paizo folk are equally nervous about psionics. Namely, if the majority of psionics fans like how they work now, who are we to "fix" them? I don't want to try to change psionics to appeal to people who don't like them now in a desperate attempt to make them like them. I want to "fix" them so that they do the things that I (and the rest of us at Paizo with an interest in psionics) want them to do in the context of both the game and their traditional/mythological role in the real world's tales and legends.

Best case scenario, we have a version of psionics that appeals to current fans of psionics AND the way we want them to work.

Middleground scenario, we estrange current fans, maybe attract some new ones, and have something that works for us but without the fans to support it we don't do much more with the rules.

Worst case scenario, we ruin them.

Taking those three possibilities, I don't want to do a psionics book if we can't hit the Best Case version; I'd rather let it lie. The Expanded Psionics Handbook IS, after all, compatible as it stands with PFRPG.

I really appreciate your willingness to go slowly in revising psionics. I have faith if and when Paizo does a revision to the psionic rules it will be done with your usual high quality.

Something like that, but maybe a little less in there, that'd pull the costs down and maybe sub in something. Just trying to thorw stuff at the walls.

I would like to see:

Pathfinder Apocrypha - an Unearthed Arcana like book, with alternative classes and some point-buy system for changing core classes, like in Spells and Powers; rules for spell points for sorcerers; new options, like Item Familiar feat, etc.

Pathfinder Psionics - which I think should be done by Dreamscarred Press guys for hte Paizo. They have a feel for the psionics, but lack production abilities to manufacture a book that will replace XPH. By that, I mean illustrators, graphic designers etc.

Complete Book of... - like we had in the days of 2nd Ed. Green Ronin's Master Class series books are a good example of the kind of product I would like to see, but for the core classes as well.

Pathfinder Planets - some kind of sword and planet setting, remminescent of Barsoom, Dark Sun and S. M. Stirling novels.

The Exchange

I would buy a psionics book, I used it in 3.5, but I could live without it for a while. I'm sticking with my Aztec/Mayan campaign setting request for now, but a really good oriential setting would also be nice.
I also want more classes. I want necromancers to be a class all their own.


Graphic Novels based on the Adventure Paths starring the iconic characters


The East.

I've no doubt they could do a better job than most eastern settings I have seen.

It needs a map that lines up with the Avistan/Garund map from the campaign setting book. That vertical map business irritates me to no end, but it could be easily rectified by another map next to it.

Wow, James. Wellspoken and very respectful. I feel y'all's pain. Both the middleground and worst case scenarios seem equally bad.

The best case scenario is possible, but it will take alot of time and headaches. But it may be worth it. Psionics has a strong (even if small) following of devoted fans. And the Expanded Psionics Handbook is hard to find these days.

I liked Random Dave's suggestion for a section of the forum devoted to erreta. Perhaps something similar for psionics? It's a huge subject and mabye having many different threads will help sort through the muck. (Eric Mona's thread "What Does Psionics Mean To You?" now has over 600 posts in it. And it's still going! I just posted in it for the first time on page 13!) (P.S. Check it out... I feel like I contributed at least as much as anybody else.)

Besides a book on psionics...

Books furthering the optinons for existing classes. Whether they're in the spirit of the complete books for 3.5 (one book devoted to many class types) or the complete books for 2nd E (one book per class) doesn't matter much to me.

Books on the other continents of Golarion and Golarion's history. I am dying for more info on that wonderful world!

A poster map of the entirety of Golarion!

A deities book.

"Morale" books in the spirit of the Book of Exalted Deeds and the Book of Vile Darkness.

Thanks for your time!


Oriental Adventure Revisited!

No new classes (std or prestige) PLEASE! Just some different fluffy presentations for the PFRPG stuff and some pointers on how to use the current classes, feats, skills, etc. to built and represent those themes. Maybe a few class variants.

Did anyone mention a Pathfinder version of the d20 System Character Record Folio? Because to me a character sheet doesn't have enough space for information until it's about the length of a 19th century Russian realist novel.

I'd love to see an adventure path that is primarily or even exclusively based on the planes. I miss the days of Planescape, and if anyone could bring that flavor back (and even improve on it), it's Paizo. Something that really brings out the true oddity and grandeur of the planes (as opposed to something that just has big planar monsters instead of normal critters) would be ideal.

Liberty's Edge

I would love to see a video game done by Bioware actually. I;m not sure if that's legal with how the OGL works but if so, it would be a GREAT way to hook people who don't know about the game into Golarion and Pathfinder. I'm sure you can find tons of people who got into the Forgotten Realms because of the Baldur's Gate series or Neverwinter Nights.

Also, Marvel Comics did a swimsuit edition before.

... just saying.

I would like to see that. That is exactly how I got into the realms. That and the novels. It would have to be Bioware.

If it was possible.

Maybe after Ms. Cunningham's run of fiction and whatever else is planned we may see some graphic novel form fiction in Pathfinder itself. Of course, that's much more expensive and time consuming than straight up prose, but I think it would be pretty cool if done right.

Somehow, I´m just reminded of the Black Moon Chronicles - if there ever was an excellent RPG-based graphic novel, this surely is one.

I once had a player use a diary-style journal to keep game information. He would write a continuing account of game events in the front half of the book and started writing from the back forward on NPCs they encountered and enteracted with regularly. When the two sections met, he started a second journal. He had close to two books of in-game story notes and descriptions of NPCs when the campaign wrapped up.


What I would like to see from Paizo is to make it possible for 3PP to make products and adventures for use in Pathfinder Society events. For me as a fan and business person, that would be cool!

Perhaps the best way to do a psionics book and hit best case would be to follow the path of PFRPG. As in do a open beta test, come up with some basic rules with a alpha 1 and go from there.

I have never been a big fan of Psionics but then to me it has always felt like another flavor of magic and didn't stand apart enough. So maybe a open beta of such would allow for enough input to get that best result. Or maybe not.


I would love something "Spelljammerish" if I can coin a phrase. Don't know if that's possible, but I always loved the idea of it. I understand that the Golarion system has a number of inhabitable planets. D&D in space would definitely be a niche audience, but its cool (and corny) but that's not a bad mix....

If/When we do a psionics book... I would LOVE to have an open playtest of it. Not only to have folks help playtest, but at the very least so folks know what's coming rather than be surprised when it's not a system (as every system before) that lets you break the game.

This is not something I see us doing any time soon, if ever. Mainly because the leveling system would allow PCs to hit the cap way too fast if we opened the flood gates and allowed others to create scenarios for the Society. But also for a lot of internal reasons dealing with sales that I can't really discuss. Rest-assured, the Society is progressing nicely, but it's a progress we don't want to tinker with via 3PP sources.


Just wandering,could a box set be profitable as a limite edition collector item??

You can bet your pa-toot that I'm on board! The Pathfinder playtest was some of the most fun I've had with any RPG in a long time.

It's not the overall system that's busted... just the individual powers (like energy ball). Plus I'd love to see what the good folks at Paizo think the "flavor" should be.

... We start tomorrow, right?

On the subject of boxed adventures, I will tell you this: most of the boxed adventures that you are so fondly thinking of from the old days at TSR lost money for the company and thus aren't viable business models. I too loved opening the box and checking out all the cool do-dads. Matter of fact, I own every one of those boxed sets. But the cost to print things like that is high and, off the top of my head, I think a boxed adventure like that would have to cost near $50 to $60 to make sense. And in this economy, I don't know how many people would buy something like that.

That said, we will keep searching for ways to do something like this affordably. Because it would be da bomb!

No it wouldn't, just print out a cover sheet and a back sheet and glue them to the UPS/USPS box ;)


I'd love to see Paizo expand it's partnership with Monte Cook, and work out an agreement with him to produce some new Ptolus material!

A Land of the Linnorm Kings/Irrisen AP!

With the APs, I want to explore as many different standard role-playing settings/themes as possible, but Golarion style. We've had deserts, cities, forests, elves, giants, genies, etc.; I think we need a winter setting.

Winter, fey, Ulfen warriors, and Baba Yaga winter witches!

I'd very much like to see and participate in Pathfinder Psionics open testing. My next campaign will be heavily influenced by Dark Sun and Spelljamer, which means a lot of psionics. Oh, and I would like to see a bestiary exclusively devoted to dinosaurs and ice age animals.


nightflier wrote:

That might be a bit too specific... But the "Lost World" topic is one that begs to be explored, perhaps with an AP, and accompanying monster and creature entries. (I loved the ideas in the movie Ice Age 3 :-))

If I just browse the ideas for APs in this thread, I guess that Paizo hat enough APs for the next five years at least if these ideas are picked up.

And spelljammer - I just loved the setting for all its craziness, even if I never came around to play it.

Regarding Psionics - well, I can do without them. I would like to see paizos stance on the topic, but more in a "let´s see what they make of it" interest. IMO, it can wait.

I think beta testing psionics would be the best move ever made with the system. There has always been a lot which seems out of balance with psionics but by giving everyone a chance to work out the problems together along with feedback, if done the same as in beta, Paizo could build the best psionics class ever designed. I'd like to see that very much.


I would like to second the request for higher level adventures. I know that the high level stuff does not sell as good. But come on throw us a bone. What would be great is a adventure story that we could continue after any of the pathfinder adventures to take us to like lvl 20.

Oooo, yeah, would love to see at least one high level adventure. One specifically designed for characters from a previous adventure path would also be crazy fantastic!

And though this can wait for a while, eventually a book with Paizo's interpretation on epic rules and game play (complete with epic monsters and a mini adventure path) would be GREAT!!

I'd be willing to playtest the soulknife.


I think its silly to assume there even will be soulknifes and psychic warriors.

It'll probably be a totally different psionics system.
