Mok TaskMaster left a comment on Pathfinder Online lays off almost entire staff

Paizo had this demoing at Gencon – so just a month ago. I didn’t go see it there, and I haven’t even thought of trying it until it were to go Public, so I have no thoughts on the game itself. BUT, dedicating a booth space to the MMO as little as a month ago, and now this seems odd. It also sounds like from some of the people who /did/ try it, the MMO didn’t even use 3.5/PF rule sets for doing things, which is very odd indeed.

Making games from scratch takes a lot of capital. Paizo may have been out of their element – may = was/is.

  1. Hey guys I don’t see the download link 🙁

    • Draculetta /

      Should be fixed, and any Podcast app you use to pull down podcasts should be updating now too!! Thanks!

  2. Has Pineleaf managed to catch up with Acquisitions Incorporated and The Stormreach Campaign yet? Most traps kill mobs – is one of the cool tactics you can employ – the exception that springs to mind is the force bridge in part 3 & 4 of the Grey Moon chain which SHOULD kill the ogres but doesn’t. Traps killing mobs is definitely WAI.

  3. OMG! I just had a thought about the last Acquisitions Incorporated at PAX Prime and the Rage of Demons trailer. Chris Perkins(!!) highlighted how the WotC campaign is going into the Underdark with Lessah’s boytoy Drizzt and there were deep gnomes/Svirfneblin in it! Which reminds me of something Sev said on the forums (Who am I kidding? I can’t remember things! I’m listening to DDO Players ep 19 right now, which is telling me what Sev said on the forums months ago, and he said “deep gnomes.”) Gnomes! Gnomes! GNOMES!!!!!!!

    P.S. You can totally use dungeon traps to damage monsters. A classic example is Kobold’s New Ringleader. Once you’ve pulled runes to open the door. Inevitably, one kobold will run up the corridor to hit the alarm gong, and they always trigger the fire trap and get roasted!

    P.P.S. Next week’s poll should be about which module Drac should use. “Let’s Kill Drac’s Friends!”

  4. And an extra thanks for introducing me to Titansgrave – can’t remember exactly when it got mentioned but took the time to look it up and been really enjoying it.
