Feel free to keep guessing secret project stuff, folks, but keep the tired old edition war stuff to yourselves. Thanks!

Ok so it's not monkeys and it's not tired old war stuff. He's decorating for a new childling and taking paternity leave.

In support of the Savage Tide or Age of Worms Idea...

Look at James's Avatar!

It screams that he would love to revisit it...

I give it a .002% chance now!

Whatever you want to call it, it's not cool, so let's just leave it out of the thread (and the boards here as well). Thanks!

There *are* things in life that some people would not like to do more than once. Especially things that can take up to a year, assuming a pace of one entire evening per week, like clockwork, rain or shine (or snow, or ice storm, or heat wave...)

Okay after seeing a comment in the new Ap's thread I'm going to take a guess that one of the secret projects are most of the suppoirt articles for Strange aeons.

In all seriousness, I'm going to guess it's actually a setting bible for Golarion, and working with Obsidian for some type of CRPG (not the card game, an actual CRPG).


Has it been said if these projects are even Pathfinder related?

Since Obsidian just confirmed that they are done with Pillars of Eternity... ;)


So, James, has anyone guessed even remotely close to the actual "Super Secret Project" now that there are over 300 posts?

And, yes, I do realize that an affirmative answer will send us into paroxysms of glee and fuel a rabid examination of all the previous posts to see if we can figure out just who and what the correct answer is.

We should set up a betting pool. Someone could get rich with the correct guess. A "Paizo Lottery" if you will. . . .

Nope. Those are tiny little things, comparatively speaking.

Not gonna say, other than to confirm that there are multiple projects, some of which I might actually NOT be working on but might be doing a LOT with, and that they're not small things like articles for Strange Aeons or the like.

I can guarantee that some folks who are excited on this thread will be disappointed though, alas. I'm already nervous that it's been blown out of proportion.

I will say this: there's been a few guesses that would be things that I would LOVE to do that I simply don't think I'll ever GET to do.


I think I would only disappointed if it is not related to a AP, Campaign Setting book, and/or some kind of hardcover book.

I think I would only be disappointed if it doesn't lead to Paizo conquering and taking over the entire Pacific Coast of the U.S.

Okay so thinking either a book for the novel series, working on the comics or a module.

You know, as long as it's not one of those ass-backwards Aesops like "you didn't really need to know James Jacobs' secret project, it was inside you all along!" I think I'll be good with whatever it ends up being.

A very politically astute answer. You should run for office. :) . . . Hey, I just figured it out, he's running for President!

Well, Skeld does always gets things before the rest of us so I'm inclined to agree with this theory.

Im thinking either a back in time AP to the war against Tar Baphon or Azlanti vs aboleths, or writing up a major expansion hardback of Casmaron.

I won't believe that Pathfinder Modern will ever be a thing, but it sure would help with creation of modern post apocalyptic campaign(I know few players who have been asking about post apocalyptic game) :P

...Huh, I just realized that I have demand for Jacobs' post apocalyptic game on earth idea/project he has mentioned several times :'D Its really hard to find post apocalyptic games for some reason

I know, he's going to Mars to start a pathfinder group there and get real experience working off world.


For my serious guess (and hope).

Game Master Unchained

aka - The James Jacobs guide to running a successful and fun pathfinder game.

An 100% optional book on how to adjudicate and handle some of the trickier areas of running a game where the actual in print rules give taking a bar exam a run for it's money.

Subjects will include:

Traps - how do I run these so they continue to be interesting for my players in a world with the trapfinder talent?

Flying combat - how to handle it

Mounted combat - how to handle it

Time keeping - how to keep it.

15 minute adventures - and how to keep the party from ever doing that

When it's a good idea to break/bend a rule

When it's not a good idea to break/bend a rule

How to run a game with no mini's (rules to ignore/change)

etc.

I would pre-order that book as fast as I could enter my payment information once it was announced.

Pathfinder-branded chocolate bars. Complete with goblin packaging. That spontaneously combusts.

An international chain of Pathfinder-branded restaurants. With staged LARP barfights.

Reworking the world's economy to use Paizo-provided copper, silver, gold, and platinum pieces as the only currency.

A marketing campaign that finally perfects the dominate wallet spell Paizo has been using on us for years.

Replacing the US presidential voting system with RPG Superstar. "Design a Wondrous Item, Rule A Nation."

Building a real golem to work at the office, so they'll have someone to blame (for everything) than Cosmo.

Convincing the Louvre to dedicate a wing to Wayne Reynolds' Pathfinder artwork.

A Pathfinder theme-park, complete with dinosaur rides.

This reminds me of an Onion article where the SCA annexed a large portion of Russia.

I would rather see an anime based on the Pathfinder comic series. I think Tabletop Roleplaying Games work better as sources for series and mini series instead of trying to cram all the required story elements into a movie.

Screw live action. I also vote for a properly done animated series rated R or something... 'cause it won't be complete without Merisiel and Kyra smooching in a bath house together... with or without Valeros peeking.... :P
