    They'll let you work them out for them so the rest of us can have a great game after waiting three months.

    New instagram post.

    I wouldn't put much stock this being a clue. While Curse of the Crimson Throne is visible, that's mostly due to the fact that it and Rise of the Runelords are the only two collected as a hardcover. If you look you can see volumes of Kingmaker, Mummy's Mask, Strange Aeons and Wrath of the Righteous and the hardcover of Rise of the Runelords. This collection isn't even sorted (AP volumes aren't next to others in their AP).



    I think every 90%+ of APs have at least one skeleton in them.

    Since Deadfire was such a hit I think we all know which AP they will use

    Mummy's Mask is extremely "meh" after a great first book. It's pure dungeon crawl. Also book 3 is all about humoring an obese bureaucrat lady that's in love with a random PC so she'll let you in a library. Yes: Really. This isn't a one time thing either, you have to compete in her various games to keep her favor.

    That seems like not a bad guess. The building in the background, behind the skeleton getting zapped, has kind of an Egyptian look to it...

    I think the town on the puzzle pieces looks a bit like Sandpoint, but I'd be surprised if the game ended up being Rise of the Runelords.

    Sandpoint is a bit visually inconsistent. This highlighted illustration shows thatched roofs.[​IMG]
    The cover and text for the book it's in say shingles.

    HOMM too outdated. Small amount of gamers want to play archaic rts where you blob units.

    If the HOMM tribute is more than just loving the game, Ironfang Invasion has an optional mass combat system and has army v. army stuff. Remember that Kingmaker's management system had little in common with the AP's magement system.

    You're right, the pic you posted looks fairly different.

    This is the one I thought was a reasonable fit:

    Similar architecture and mountains in the background.

    Please just let it be Pathfinder Kingmaker 2 with both toggeable RTWP or TB combat.

    They should seriously just hire the guy who developed the Turn-Based Mod. That shit is fantastic.

    As for Kingmaker 2 - I'd love to see another adventure in a more exotic location in Golarion. Even an urban adventure set in Absalom would be amazing.

    They posted some PF2-related memes on their Facebook about two weeks ago. These memes alongside the Pathfinder stack of books on their Instagram page could provide a clear clue about their next game.

    I forgot Sandpoint only had a wall on the northern edge. Its layout is pretty set in stone though (every building is detailed) and I can't work out the camera to make it work.

    There aren't any APs in Absalom. Two give it a brief glimpse in their final module, but neither is really interactive. I think this is largely because Absalom is the main setting for Pathfinder Society (Their organized play thing. Like RPGA.) which has almost a fifth of scenarios (63 out of 323) take place on the Isle of Kortos (which Absalom is on). There's supposed to be an AP all about it next year, though that's for the shitty 2E.

    Bros. This is a SKELETON. Struck by a CHAINLIGHTNING. In front of a PYRAMID.

    You know which game had both pyramids, skellingtons and chain lightning spell?

    You know what I would like to see from Owlcat? A game with Pathfinder mechanics that uses a gameplay structure similar to X-COM/Darkest Dungeon.

    I'm playing Pathfinder right now (I'm close to the end) and I've come to the conclusion that the best part of the game is definitely character creation and leveling and gearing up your party. In fact, I'd say that the other aspects of the game aren't even good - the story is not that interesting, the main story quests are quite good but are broken up by a deluge of literal MMO-tier "go to area X, kill/retrieve Y, come back" side quests with very limited decision making and roleplaying, the game has dozens, maybe even hundreds of locations that all take place in the same 5-10 maps copypasted over and over, the combat stopped being challenging after level 5 or so and apart from a few DLC battles, the boss fights are a joke and the encounter design in each story chapter consists of fighting the same groups of enemies over and over not unlike Dragon Age Deep Roads.

    However, despite all that, I'm still enjoying the game. Why? Because the character creation and the subsequent process of leveling and gearing up your party is very enjoyable. So I'd really love to see a game where you would be able to constantly create new parties and send them on small expeditions like X-COM or DD, instead of a game where you just have 1 party and stick to it for 200 hours. On multiple occasions I wanted to start a game over with a new characters and I very much enjoyed the DLC that takes place in a different region where you play with another party.
