SOA is in Long Beach in customs--scheduled to arrive here around the 25th!

Damnit. I'm hanging out to read this, but I'm going away in May - I just bet I'm going to get an SMS telling me it's arrived the day after I leave. :(

Do you have any firm timeline on the nuclear option?

Publisher, Frog God Games

Steve--I packed your 5e box a few minutes ago--will mail as soon as the Book of Lost Spells leather gets here Tues.

SOA will pack in full the weekend after it arrives--except the metal books--they are at the smithy right now getting etched and engraved. I'll mail you the other stuff if you want--when do you leave?

Hi bill.

5E books sounds great. (Cant wait for them either!) May as well put the rest aside for when the metal book arrives I think. We leave early in may and it doesn't sound like it will make it across the Pacific in time.

Cheers

Oh, you got the edition that required a blacksmith, Steve? I'm going to require pictures. :D

Bill has a test on his facebook page. I tried to link to the picture, but facebook didn't like me doing that.

Yes, I saw it... Wow...

Had a little time to kill so I thought I’d drop a short deity tidbit (a lot of it is not new but frames it within its own pantheon).

The Foerdewaith Pantheon

This cute little pantheon (it’s likely to grow a little, but not much since most of the Foerdewaith subscribe to the Hyperborean pantheon’s “common” deities—see my previous list) comes from the Kingdom of Foere. Once one of the many states of the Hyperborea, after that empire’s abandonment of the West for its eastern capital at Tircople, the Kingdom of Foere was one of the many that arose in the vacuum and began to expand and gain power. The difference between it and all the other contenders was the it won and its king, Macobert I, became the first overking of the Divine Hyperborean Monarchy of the Foerdewaith (yeah, they were a little verbose). The Kingdom of Foere expanded and absorbed what became informally known as the Foerdewaith Empire--aka the Kingdoms (plural) of Foere, and Macobert I laid down a dynasty that ruled most of Akados for 700 years. It really wasn’t until the catastrophe of the Battle of Tsar fast on the heels of the last hereditary overking. Graeltor (see The Slumbering Tsar Saga) was an uncle of the last overking rather than a direct descendant of Macobert and therefore always struggled with his right of ascension after the death of Oessum VIII (too bad Oessum wasn’t more oessum in battle, badum bum. It would actually be pronounced Oh-sum, but hey close enough). As a result after the humiliation of Graeltor from the loss of the entire Army of Light, the Foerdewaith Wars of Succession began and brought about the end of the Divine Monarchy. The Kingdom (and Kingdoms) of Foere still exist is a powerful nation that occupies much of central Akados, but it is no longer an empire after 3 centuries of successful rebellions. A peace of sorts exists between and its many former subsidiaries, but there are certainly elements within the capital at Courghais who would like to see a new overking rise.

Anyway, because of Foere’s unusual continental influence over a 700-year period. Their own personal pantheon has gained some staying power. Here it is for you (you’ll note that there are many repeats from among the Common deities):

Quell - The Sea King; Lord of the Blue; Razor Coast (this guy is the chief deity of the pantheon and according to legend Macobert was directly descended from him).

Belon the Wise - God of Travel; Wanderer in White (Foerdewaith); Bard’s Gate, Razor Coast; a god of arcane knowledge, Belon is beginning to overtake worship of Jamboor among arcane casters.

Kudrak - Lesser God of Guardians (Foerdewaith); Morrick Mansion, Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms; a little like a lesser version of Vanitthu.

Stryme/Strym - Stryme the Mighty, God of Strength (Foerdewaith, Dwarven); Aberrations, Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms; A dwarven god that was able to make the jump to human worship as well.

The Green Father - God of the Wilds, The Huntsman/Herne the Hunter (Foerdewaith), The Horned God (Erskaelosi), Cernunnos (Tuatha De); Crystal Skull, Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms; A primordial nature deity that found his way into Foerdewaith folklore and tradition and remains hanging around after millennia. (You’ll note some development on him. His Herne/Huntsman aspect is very Foerdewaith, but The Horned One is an aspect picked up by the Erskaelosi so he is officially a barbarian god as well. Cernunnos is his aspect worshipped by the Ancient Ones from their Tuatha De pantheon. He has a great and timeless rivalry with the Hyperborean Pan which he has been getting the worst of for the last 300 years with the Foerdewaith decline.)

Freya - Goddess of Love and Fertility; Freyja (Vanir, Foerdewaith); Bard’s Gate and everywhere; Probably the single-most popular deity used in NG/FGG books next to Orcus. She is a transplant from the Aesir/Vanir pantheon of the Heldring/Northlanders and has found immense popularity in Akados. She is single-handedly slowly but surely replacing the Hyperborean goddess Zadastha (who is herself a transplant from the Gohtra pantheon of Far Jaati) as the goddess of love. The fertility aspect has some uncomfortable competition from the ancient dark goddess Cybele (aka The Magna Mater).

Archeillus - God of Rightful Rule; Protector of the Nobility (Foerdewaith); Doom of Listonshire; a favored god of the old gentry.

The Path of the Shattered Sword – a little-known religion dedicated to Peace and Accord (Foerdewaith); Trouble in Durbenford; one of the newer faiths that have been springing up around Akados that are what are often referred to as “deity-less”. The Shattered Sword reveres no specific deity but rather adheres to their philosophy and peace and nonviolence. Yet they still receive divine spells. Only females may become clerics of the Path of the Shattered Sword. It originated among the Foeredewaith in recent decades as a branch sect of the much older Church of the Blessed Tesseract (an ancient faith and probably the first of the Deity-less religions, but not Foerdewaith so no more info here.)

Cult of the Unspeakable – a pseudo-intellectual of hedonism and alien vistas (Foerdewatih); Trouble in Durbenford; the newest of the Foerdewaith deity-less faiths (at least in its current incarnation), these secret cult of hedonism and excess was started by a loan visionary (some would say madman) and has been working its way among the upper crust of Foerdewaith society. It is not yet large or powerful, but how deep its tentacles reach is not truly understood. Oh, did I say ‘tentacles’? Yeah, you know there’s more going on with these guys. ;-)

P.S. The Lost Lands: Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms KS launches very soon...maybe as early as tomorrow. More news on that as it comes.

Pathfinder Creative Director, Frog God Games

P.P.S. Registration for games at North Texas RPG Con opened last night and the non-Pathfinder games are filling up. Sure it's an old-school con, but even the 5e games are filling up. I've got to save some face here. If any of you are planning to be in Dallas Jun 4-7 and want to play some Pathfinder games FGG preview material, register here. Help me out; I'm looking bad in front of all these old guys!

I prereg'ed for Shades of Yellow (was the first thing I signed up for during Midnight Madness), and was really debating the Northlands event on Friday....but Mythrus Tower called!

Pathfinder Creative Director, Frog God Games

I saw that davrion. Thanks!
An unfortunate side effect of running the games there is that I always end up missing Mythrus.
So welcome aboard!
I just received the first piece of art back on Shades and it is SWEET. I'd post it to share, but it is super spoilery so I'll hold off for now. The cover of the book should be posted for everyone when we launch the KS, though. I think it turned out really cool.


I took pity on you, Greg, and signed up for one of your events. :)


Greg, how do you pronounce Foere? Is it "fore / four" or more like "foe-err"?


Cult of the unspeakable might be right in line with something for my long standing campaign....any mucus involved with those tentacles?

Haha! Thanks! I tried to sign up for one of your games but it ran concurrently one I had already signed up for with Erol Otus. :-( Probably for the best; it'd be difficult to sit in on two games at once, but I was really hoping to play some Grimmsgate.

I've been pronouncing it fo-AIR. Foeredwaith is pretty close to how it looks, FOR-ed-with.

You really should. It's pretty inexpensive, not too big, and a lot of fun.

I decided since my table has no events scheduled prior to my Friday morning event, I'd start it early for those who want a pick up game. I intend to camp there after breakfast anyway. So, feel free to join in!

Alternatively, I can run the adventure I wrote. You've only heard about it so far. It was fun to run at PaizoCon last year. I think the playtesters really enjoyed it, even the ones who lost characters.

Pathfinder Creative Director, Frog God Games

Sounds like a plan. :-)

Any chance of some emails pointing it out to FGG fans or subscribers of the newsletter or past KS backers so we can get in on it sooner rather than later?

They are pretty good at posting the links to the KS page on the first day it goes live (in its own separate thread).

Yeah, we'll post links when we go live. I'll check about e-mail notifications, Dhampir.

Just working out the last few little kinks in the KS page. So very close...

Cool, thanks. :) Biggest issue I tend to have with links posted here on Paizo, is the forum can bury the thread quickly.

The Kickstarter has launched here and I have started a thread for it here. I have asked a bout sending out an e-mail blast but have not yet received a response.
Dhampir, I'll PM you just in case.

By the way, got my Quests of Doom in, Love it!

Pathfinder Creative Director, Frog God Games

Awesome! Glad you like it. I still haven't seen the finished version.

Hey, don't feel bad. I didn't know for sure it was launching tonight until it did. It got approval from KS super fast and then went right through. We had intended originally to launch yesterday, so we only missed our target by 1 day. I thought it would be worse than that.


Hey, Greg, I noticed they don't list Backers anymore. Any idea why? Just curious.

I don't know. It's a Kickstarter thing as opposed to an us thing from what I can tell, but I'm not tech savvy enough to give any sort of insight unfortunately.

Sorry, we won't have anything from The Blight ready in time for this year. We ran a Blight adventure a couple years ago, but it was a super-long, multiple-day session so it's difficult to wrangle. We will have some Northlands Saga and Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms stuff though.

Looks like something changed recently!

I'd echo that KarlBob, and I hope you'll enjoy it - all feedback welcome. I know Al Rigg has put in a lot of work to do with this behind the scenes with Greg, both have been awesome.

Hereafter is the first part of my 9 part urban horror AP Levee, which Greg is looking at now - enviously - heh heh. The Blight is the disturbing city within which the AP takes place and where my own campaign is based. It's very much an adult, horrific, sweaty place of alchemy; it's Frankenstein meets Alice. I can't wait to see it out and see what people think of it.

Both are due out from Frog God Games in the coming future.

I have just seen the Northlands saga complete as a pre-order here due in October this year, Does this mean no kickstarter and its coming out to buy then?

VERY excited about this!!!

I'm not sure how that got there. We are kickstarting Northlands in July, so it actually ought to be out by then but not until after the KS and not unless it funds. Maybe they're just getting a jump on it? I don't have a big problem with a preorder I guess (maybe it's something Bill and Lisa worked out?), but if everyone preorders instead of backing the kickstarting, then we can't print it...and preorders don't get filled and then no one gets it. Admittedly that is a worst-case scenario. Still it seems a little irregular. I'm not sure that it's not actually a mistake.

I sent a message to Bill to try and get some clarification. I'll let you guys know what I find out.

All it took was Alistair Rigg swimming all the way here from Australia with his game books and playtest materials in a waterproof knapsack! I hadn't known he was going to when I answered you before KarlBob, but we're excited he is. Now I'll just have to find an excuse to sneak out of the banquet and watch the mayhem. :-)

Yep, what Rich said. I am in fact looking at it enviously right now. The part I'm most envious of is the intro theme that Richard put together for when we launch the KS this fall. Between the music, camerawork, and period props, I think Richard really captured the "Frankenstein meets Alice" aspect perfectly.

Watch this glimpse into the vault of disturbia that is Richard Pett's brain here.
