Am I missing something or are there only the monsters in the Stoneheart Valley files and not the NPCs? I was looking to print out the pregens and could not locate them except in the pdf.
They are included in the Portfolio files. They are in the folder for Wizard's Amulet, in the folder for Pre-Generated Characters.
Thanks for the reminder. I saw them when I unzipped the file and forgot about them, sorry!
/sniff sniff...This tells me that you did not read the instructions that I wrote for everyone to make sure you didn't miss anything. (Actually other Deep Cave Frogs wanted me to add additional text to cover this file in multiple places.) So I guess I am just going to crawl into a corner of my cave and cry for a while that my words aren't read.

Along the same theme though the FGG Player content does not include Mitra as a deity. Is this an oversight or was this done for a reason? I would hate to have to have my players buy all the sources just to use Mitra.
The Pathfinder general content is free.
I don't remember if we included Mitra or not in LL:SV, I would assume if I had included it, Umarian would have it in there. Not all the gods of the Lost Lands are out there yet, I know that for sure.
The general file will be updated as info is available.
I have not included the RA stuff into the Pathfinder Content file yet. Since it has its own file, that was released before this, it will require a lot to get it in.
I COULD separate the stuff and release an update to both, but you would have to have your original download e-mail to get the new file version of RA, and if you don't have it, Blonde Frog might beat me up because of all the e-mails she would get asking for that information.
The other part of that is that a very large number of the pieces of RA are not coded. So I would have to go through all of it and figure out what needs to be fixed, which can take longer than creating it from scratch.
Many of the pieces have already been included since they appeared in other products, but still a lot that is not. I have been slowly but surely trying to include more pieces in.
It is still on my radar, but with new stuff continuing to come out, there is a lot of new work to be done. Also, just started back to college this week, after several years break, so a lot on the plate right now. I will try to get the deities included in the next release at least.
Sounds like a lot of work just for a few deities. Did flag my original email just in case, but I am sure most people are not as anal as I am about keeping 7+ years of back email! Now you could wait until Blonde Frog leaves for Legendary Games and let all those emails fall on her replacement (ducking swiftly)! Good luck in school!

Mine should be arriving on Tuesday. The slightly disappointing thing is that, according to the traffing info, it apparently sat around for a week boxed up, labeled, and with a tracking number assigned, all ready to ship before being picked up by the USPS. Just one day, if not a couple of hours sooner, would have made the difference between enjoying the book over a long holiday weekend and not having a chance to look at it until next weekend.
It's going to end up being almost 2 1/2 weeks. And, as much as I really don't care for the USPS, I do have to say that most of the time, packages coming from the left coast to Ohio only take them 2 or 3 days.
Not quite how it works, FGG will have sent the tracking notification well before they were packed up, it is pretty normal to get the paper work stuff sorted before actually doing the packaging. The tracking would have been done en-mass via mail-merge type operation then the packaging started and stuff sent out once the packs were ready
Still doesn't mean you get your package before the hols tho :D
Mine came today also. I have no complaints about the artwork even if it is a little dark in spots. I would rather it be in a book that will last than a cheap glossy version. I have already used a lot of the monsters in RA and ST so I know they are good ones! Many of the rest look good also and easily dropped into my FGG game campaigns. I know it will get a LOT of use over the next few years. Great job Frogs!!! I give it *****

Ja,es--yup--Mama does labels usually on Fridays and we start packing on Sat--deliver to post office Monday morning (usually). Its myself, Mama and Lil frog most of the time--we rope Skeet or others in occasionally--think Skeet and I did like 400 boxes two weeks ago (Mama and Lil frog were at a swim meet).

You know, seeing Bill and everyone at FGG do Tome 4 gets me all nostalgic.
I could not be more proud of the work the guys at FGG do.
You guys know the story. I started Necro and got Bill involved. Quickly we became one of the best third party publishers and put out a ton of old school goodness. It was an amazing run. 4E came along and life changes for me and I wasn't able to stay in the biz on a day to day basis. Bill has taken over the Necro content with my blessing and I am so happy to see it thriving.
But back to my original point :) I am so glad to see Tome growing. I remember coming up with the name with Bill back in the day. I hope you all realize how this product started and what an amazing tribute it is to the Open Game movement. I was able to secure from Wizards of the Coast the rights to do ALL the "forgotten" monsters that hadnt been officially updated to 3E and to release them as open content in our original Tome of Horrors. THAT is why Pathfinder is able to have all those monsters in their game--they got them as open content from us. Which is totally awesome.
I am so proud of having been able to make the original Tome of Horrors for all the gamers. It is one of the highlights of my time with Necro (along with doing a product with Gygax and going to dinner with him at GenCon, and doing the Wilderlands products with Bob Bledsaw and getting permission from the Frazetta family to use Frazetta art on the cover).
I believe in the open gaming movement. Without it, we wouldnt have Pathfinder.
I am so proud to see Bill and the guys and girls at FGG carry on the tradition of the Tome of Horrors.
If you are sitting on the fence, please check this thing out. Not only is it an amazing book of monsters. It is also a part of the chain of one of the most important products in the Open Game movement. The Tome of Horrors as a series will long be remembered in gaming. Seriously, you are getting more than a book. You are getting a part of gaming history. And I am so happy to see Bill and the FGG crew continuing this awesome tradition.
Tome has been and always will be near and dear to my heart.
I just wanted to share, for those who might not know, the super cool role Tome as a series has played in the continued game tradition carried on in Pathfinder. Could you imagine Pathfinder without all those cool old school monsters? Sorry if an old guy like me waxes all nostalgic, but we were really able to achieve something great with Tome, something I am proud of and something I am overjoyed to see Bill and co. continue doing.
And what comment on Tome would be complete without a big shout out to Scott Greene. If there was ever a monster guru, my friend you are it!
Enjoy the monsters.
If you are sitting on the fence, please check this thing out.
No fence-sitting at all. It's on its way across the Pond as I type these words. For me, the title "Tome of Horrors" is an instant buy simply because of the history and quality that's associated with the title. This book does not disappoint. Another fine collection of awesome critters to unleash into the minds of my players. So yeah, instant sell for me. Admittedly, most of what Frog God Games puts on the gaming shelves is an instant buy these days. :)
Honestly, what I liked best about the ToH4 was the dedication to Eric Jansing, aka Shade, who passed away in 2012.
For those who don't know, he was a monster guru that was active on the "General Monster Talk" forum, and its sub-forums, over on EN World. He helped convert a metric ton of old monsters to Third Edition, and as someone who worked with him (though not at much as several others there), his loss is still felt there today.
I thought the mention in ToH4 was a great way to honor his memory.

When I saw the Living Monolith, I knew I had to use it. That thing was brutal! I think my players had just a little more difficulty with that than the Mire Brute.
In short, I love my TOH monsters!
