Copyright... 2016 Fire Mountain Games, eh. Is that more recent than anything else we know was going on, or is it in line with past info?

It's in line with past info. Michael had completed all of the art by the end of 2016. Even the newest art piece that he released (a drow engulfing a lich in black fire) and the purple lich's phylactery, are both Copyright 2015.

Speaking of that art piece, I've been thinking about it. Posted it elsewhere to so I'll bring it up here. Those black flames look like the same as we've seen in a previous picture of a dwarf being engulfed. I've been searching around, and I can't help but wonder if either the phylactery has something to do with it or if one of the NPCs had the darkfire adept prestige class. At 4th level, your spells because darkfire spells, and anyone killed by them disintegrate. You have to be non-good. Perfect for the drow or lich. However, that's from Paths of Prestige, and that's a splat book too. Having taken stuff from splat books myself, and used it in a publication (much to a my editor's dismay), I don't know if he'd have willingly copied/pasted the entire PrC into the book (as you have to, usually with feats and spells if it's not accessible on the PRD).

I will say though, that the ominous picture makes me think that holding onto the phylactery turns your character into a lich. Or begins the process (as per the Way of the Wicked feats).

Probably old news for those of you who already have the book (came out in June), but Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Distant Realms has recently come into my possession (mostly because it's now PFS legal), and I came to learn of the aszite and druchite materials (only the former is PFS legal, but that's fine). Both give a bonus to creatures that use darkness or are in dark areas. Aszite adds +2 to Stealth checks and spells like darkness last 50% longer. Other darkness spells last +1 round. As for druchite, put that on a weapon and gain a +2 bonus on attack rolls against creatures that see you using darkvision. Armor gains an automatic 10% miss chance in darkness or dim light. I'd like to think a group of dwarf or drow PCs could make of these materials quite handily. Whether it's this campaign or not.

Figured I'd mention it for those not aware of these materials.


I also discovered druchite relatively recently and also intend to put them into the ToN world. For a simple material though, I thought it might be a bit much for my group of dwarves, and so I turned it into basically the one kind of weapon enchantment the Svirfneblin excel in. I think it fits the hole gnomes and illusions stick pretty well and I also like how creatures that have similar abilities are already in the adventure and can either have been the inspiration or can maybe provide component parts for such enchantments.

Who'd have thought that seven years would pass by?

Not me!

So my adventure continues. Currently the PCs are clearing out an ancient yuan ti city and are about to face a reborn god or maybe join forces with him, then they are off to Dammerhall to face the black flames and the creatures that dwell within them!

Did the art guy say if he is going to put out a Throne of Night art book?

He has not. Haven't heard from him in a long while. It's been 11 weeks since I last saw him post something on his webpage. I'd probably get it though. I like his stuff.

I don't know if anyone else has the Adventurer's Armory 2 book, but damn is there a nasty alchemical item to use in the underground. More so at lower levels.

Darkflare is basically darkvision nullifying dynamite that you light and it then explodes the following round. Fort save or lose your darvision for 1d10 rounds, and it's only 1 gold. That's it. Wizards and alchemist drow and dwarves would have so much fun with that, regardless of what side they belong on.

To think it’s been six full years since this project was funded. Unreal.

He said those words six years ago too. It’d be nice if they were still true.

Hope everyone has been well despite things.

I reluctantly accept.

As I said on KS, he's still supporting other projects, including an underground undead campaign. Just release the notes at this point. YOu wouldn’t think it'd be that difficult. Maybe doesn't believe it's worth it at this point.

I even looked into a lawyer for this, and unfortunately, unless someone can verify he's at his old address, you can't even send the missive. There's not much in the way of ways of gaining help given the specific rules laid out by the terms.

Just wish I could have gotten the print copies of the WotW books I added on during this KS (have the PDF's but still....)

Yeah, just doesn't feel the same. To even just get the WotW stuff fulfilled would have been nice.


And he is supposed to be contributing a new adventure to the new Frog God Games kickstarter for Sea King's something or other for 5E.

Is he seriously? I honestly don't know how I feel about that. Definitely not great, though, that's for sure. I did not know that. Part of me finds that funny considering he's backing the project too.

Yeah, free pdf for all at the $20 and higher tier, and for 5e and Swords & Wizardry.

His name isn't mentioned in the comments. So either no one noticed or no one backing the project recognizes the name.

Probably be rude to message them to message Gary to tell him to get his butt working on his own project first. That we're still waiting.

Part of me hopes that he's slowly getting the funds to pay for this project because he ran out part way through.

I'm a backer and saw the name, but I didn't mention it because I didn't want to detract from the FGG KS. (Plus I'm going to North Texas Con in 3 weeks and may see if one of the Frogs could relay a message to Gary about the WotW print books for me...#EternalOptimist )

Speaking of eternal optimism, I was talking to one guy today about how I'm hoping that him being trusted to do this, and if it goes well, is Gary trying to make amends for everything. That this is his second chance that he's been given. I'd like him to do that and give us all warm feelings again.


It's a shame that this has ended in such ignominy. I asked a friend to buy into the kickstarter for me because at the time I was broke as f*$#. How embarrassing is it to con your friend for someone like Gary. Since then, I've run a table top game up to a TPK in book 1 and am currently running a PbP that is nearing the end of book 2. So much promise, so much waste. I've statted everything out through book 3, Dammerhall, though I'm not totally happy with the maps I'm using from other sources.

This campaign is the one that put me off of Kickstarter. Since then, I've only kickstarted Reaper, since the clearly know what they are doing. It is unfortunate that everyone else on Kickstarter has to suffer the negatives of Gary's fulfillment, but that is where I am as a consumer.

That's a fine sentiment. I was undecided about this kickstarter, but on reflection I still can't bring myself to support any project that Gary is involved in.

And that's perfectly okay. I don't blame you one bit. I saw one comment on Facebook talking about this, and the reply was that if he drops the ball again, they'll just hire someone else and move on. There likely won't be a third shot for him if he does.
