Thread: Next Adventure Path?

I'm just going to chime in and say I'm not a fan of Adventure paths (for any publisher, and no matter whether it's 3E, Pathfinder, or 4E).
I'd rather they do some less linear adventures.
I'd like to see more keyed maps, detailed locations, cool encounters, and interesting villains.The Fearless DM(standard; at will; recharge )

Less long paths, more short paths. Either single shot adventures, or 2-3 long is what I want from Dungeon. Really, I want 2-3 Chaos Scar adventures, and 2-3 medium length adventures every month. Of those, 1 could be an ongoing story, but I'd not want the story to "ongo" for more than 2-3 months...and, I know that is a lot to ask.

Scales of War is more or less set up as three tiers of story.
[spoiler]Heroic Tier: The villainy of Sarshan.. you finally kill the guy at the start of paragon in a really really cool adventure
Paragon Tier: the githyanki invasion... culminates in the assault of Zetch'r'r'r himself...
Epic Tier: Kill Tiamat. [/spoiler]
I think that's intended by them. The adventures also feel as if you could run any of them independent of the others.
I love adventure paths and am really hoping a new one starts up in about two months. I hope Lolth is the main villain...

You're right. However, I don't think the Heroic tier adventures hang together as well as the Paragon and Epic tier adventures. IMO, Scales of War would have been better received if it set out the terms of the heroic tier conflict much earlier.
