As for the AP, I couldn't be more excited. My favorite AD&D module was Pharaoh (have my original signed by Hickman back in the 80s, even) and I love everything Egyptian. Then to follow it up with Numeria stuff -- my second favorite module was Expedition to the Barrier Peaks. I can't wait!

Diddo.

DON'T! It will ruin Indiana Jones for you. Trust me.
I doubt that, nothing could possibly ruin indiana jones for me:)

It's perfectly fine up to the final 15 or so minutes when it goes a bit Döniken.

The folks at Know Direction recorded the panel, but I don't know when they'll have it all fancied up available.

IJ4 was OK, not great, but certainly didn't ruin the series for me. The SW prequels, on the other hand...

i tried watching phantom menace with my daughter when she was a bit younger because thats all her cousins wanted to play and after 2-3 minutes tops of Jar Jar binks she turned to me and said hesitantly "is he going to be in the WHOLE movie?" i said yes, she sighed and rolled her eyes, got up and said "just shut it off, this isn't worth it!" and went to play with her LotR barbies :) she still hasn't seen it and as she said last week never will :)

I'd much more prefer time travel. Maybe meeting some of the great people of Osrian's past.

Behold the long awaited 2015 Adventure Path featuring the PCs as lumberjacks forced to work for the Lumber Consortium. Gasp at the levels of mundane epicness over the course of six volumes of different months chopping down trees, being threatened and dealing with paying bills, all culminating in an epic decision where the PCs must choose whether to stay part of the system, or finally break free from the oppressive drudgery and change careers to something more rewarding.

An Adventure Path that takes characters from levels 1 through... well, you may reach level 2, or 3. Maybe.

Your wallet is saved!

Then again....if the BBEG is Don Cheadle Captain Planet...

That wallet is screwed again. As are the PCs, actually...

I much prefer Ted Turner Captain Planet. Sure, he's less creepy-psycho, but he's a lot more fun.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure;)

Doctor Who. Not a movie or book, but fantastic.

The Time Traveler by HG Wells for books.


I am not a fan of time travel for games, gets complicated :P

Though I am excited for this AP far more then I am excited for the current one, wrath of the rightious :)

Chrono Trigger for the videogame list.

Chrono Trigger was on SNES.

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32, 2010 Top 8

There was a Farscape episode with time travel. Interesting since it didn't get a 'reset button'.

Sovereign Court

Time Splitter game series was good.


That Farscape episode was so depressing.


Time travel stories are hard to do well, it's true. However, there have been a few good ones.

Poul Anderson has a series of books (the "Time Patrol" stories) that are quite well done. (Anderson is one of my favorite SF authors, so that helps.)

Also, Simon Hawke has six or eight books in his "Time War" series that are a lot of fun to read. The premise seems a bit trite at first, as they are all based on well known historical novels (The Scarlet Pimpernel, King Arthur, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and so on) but his rationale for the series and how he develops it over time are actually quite well done.

In film, IMHO among the best are actually the Back to the Future movies. Despite their light tone they actually are among the few works that make a serious attempt to work out the results of changes (intended and unintended) that time travel might cause in the timeline, and apply those results consistently to the story as it develops.

For sheer blow-em-up special effects fun Terminator I and II are a hoot, but they contain one of the biggest "Shoot your grandfather" closed loop paradoxes I can ever recall seeing in a time-travel film. Still enjoyable, though.


Pathfinder Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

A really good time travel film is the movie Timeline, highly recommend it.


while the terminator movies are good fun, the complete silliness of the plot in regards to time travel should preclude it from this discussion. However i would also like to point out the episode of futurma where they go to area 51 and discover fry is his own grandfather. Funny stuff!

In this case time travel could be handled sideways. The Pharoh transports his 'lost' pyramid into the current time, or maybe they step back into a specific moment.

You could frame it all sorts of ways.

He might have had nothing to do with it, and it could be a great mystery to him when he 'appears' in 'the future.'

The heroes who bested him back in the day? They somehow managed to throw him 1000 years into the future, patted themselves on the back for a job well done, and went on to celebratory excesses.

Meanwhile, the can they kicked down the road just popped back into existence, 1000 years later, and when the 'lost pharoah' figures out what happened, he's gonna start off his campaign of terror by killing their descendents...


good one Oh, Mighty SET:) also not bad TheLoneCleric

Tim Pratt's modern-day witch Marla Mason has a few things to say about that kind of heroes.


Please don't time travel to the current time... I liked it a bit in Rasputin, but another go is a no go for me, that is like its forced.

Ah, but there was no time travel in "Rasputin Must Die"! Earth's past is Golarion's present! ;)

PS: Again, Set, please stop with the awesome speculation. :P

Unless! We go back in time and change the memo from the Office of Expectations Management. . .

Also to the guy who challenged everyone to name a good time plot movie:

"12 Monkeys"

I agree on that movie. Also, The Time Traveler's Wife is a good book with this theme. And while not having any time travel, David Brin's Kiln People reads like a time travel story to me, except everyone travels into the present.


Back in the "What AP do you want to see?"-type threads, Osirion was one of only 2 votes I submitted. Thank you, Paizo. I'll put my money where my mouth is and renew the subscription for The Mummy's Mask. :D


Will their be mythic options in this?

There are no plans to include mythic content in this Adventure Path.

Well, the Advanced Players Guide will be out in playtest by the time this hits. So...hmmm. I'm up for playing one of the new classes. I think a Warpriest might fit well.

Right. XD

Anyrate. I wonder if the AP will go outside the bordres of Orisria as it currently is. Because thousands of years ago the empire use to be HUGE. I wonder if it's an excuse to do a little westward traveling.

Silver Crusade

Does the Department of Expectations Management have anything to say about magical khopeshes? :)

is genuinely excited about Ancient Egyptian-looking armor and clothing getting illustrated in the Magic Items section

Rob has a ton of books and we've been scanning chunks of it for art references. Andrew was even putting together a document for his artists that sounded like it kept growing.

I anticipate some cool art.

Probably some khopeshes too. :)

Again, really excited about this. :)

Long wanted to play an Osirioni Sarenraen cleric with a hat like this...
