Changelings!

I want game stats so I can character-make!

March 23rd?! Waaaaah!

And just so nobody gets excited, that's Changeling as in the daughters of Hags swapped out to be raised as normal human children, not the shapeshifting doppleganger-kin from Eberron.

And yes, March 23? Boooooooo! We want stats now! Although they are supposed to make really good spellcasters.

Plus they even have a reference to playing full-blooded orcs as PCs!

Nobody gets excited? That's like 7.456 times better than doppleganger-kin! There's WAY more plot fodder and hookage and drama!

But remember that if you are lucky enough to have a subscriber for a DM they should be getting hold of The Haunting of Harrowstone in the next few days - speculation has it at tomorrow. They get the PDF available as soon as it gets into Paizos warehouse apparently. :lol:

I'm more excited about getting the PDF of the Inner Sea World Guide... but I haven't even gotten my "In the next week" email letting me know a subscription shipment is even imminent.

In fact, I just got an email from Paizo informing me that the first installment will ship next week... :)

It will take a while to reach Italy and clear customs, but getting the PDF next week means that probably I'll be able to start running it on Monday the 14th as I had tentatively planned with one of my groups.

Ok, just read the description of the adventure path. Am I missing something?

An adventure where the PCs are tracking a serial killer who only kills vampires?

As in, the PCs are trying to hunt down Van Helsing? Why would they do that? Is this an "evil" adventure path or something? Ordinarily my PCs, if told about someone murdering vampires, would say "can we help"?

Yes it does sound a bit troubling, but James Jacobs was very reassuring, they will both provide suggestions for parties who refuse to go along with aiding the critters. But it seems like they feel they have enough impetus for most PCs to follow these seemingly strange courses, and they are adament that a paladin should be able to do so without falling... Slightly worrying, but I trust Paizo to do a good job, and we've got an adaptable DM who I know will roll with us if we don't do what we are supposed to do.

Happy top hear you got your confirmation, can't wait to get stuck in!

After reading the player's guide and the blurbs for the individual upcoming Carrion Crown AP books, so far I'm not entirely convinced to buy into this AP.

So far it reads like a generic series of adventure modules with the orcs, goblins, kobolds, etc ... being replaced with horror themed monsters (ie. vampires, werewolves, undead, cultists, ghosts, etc ...). Basically not much different than a generic D&D game with the players fighting horror themed monsters.

Nevertheless, I will take a look at the first Carrion Crown AP book and see whether I change my mind about buying into this AP.



Though I wonder how extensive the sanity and madness rules will be used in this AP.

Then why you are playing D&D derived games ;)

Honestly I wouldn't mind either option :D

I hope not to much...

I play CoC when I want these...

I don't play the Pathfinder rpg at all.

I've been buying the monthly Pathfinder AP books over the last several years, largely as a replacement for Dungeon Magazine. (I didn't bother subscribing to the 4E DDI). It's largely for pleasure reading, and sometimes as a source of ideas when I was DMing some 4E D&D games awhile ago.

I still have a "weakness" for a print form of Dungeon Magazine. :confused:

My original point is that if "Carrion Crown" ends up being like another "Rise of the Runelords" or "Second Darkness", but done in Ustalav instead of Varisia (along with swapping the monsters/badguys into horror themed equivalents), then I wonder whether it is still worthwhile to buy the "Carrion Crowd" AP books for the next six months.

Same here.

IIRC, the d20 version of Ravenloft also had a set of "sanity and madness" type mechanics. (Chapter 3 of the 3.5E Ravenloft Player's Handbook).

I can only assume you have not read the break down of the adventures, I missed the bits of the other APs where it looks likely you will need to contract lycanthropy, attend the trial of a golem, and save vampires from a serial killer. :D

Honestly by blurb this looks like the most original AP yet to my mind.

(I haven't seen it in Pathfinder).

I've played in a 3.5E game where it was possible to contract lycanthropy.

I've played in one-shot game where the players were vampires looking to kill the vampire hunter. (Not quite exactly the same).

I haven't played in any rpg games which directly involved putting a big bad guy on trial. At most, I've played in games where we turned in a wanted badguy in a bounty hunter type mission.

Honestly by blurb this looks like the most original AP yet to my mind.

I'll decide after I take a look through the first Carrion Crown book (or two).
