For those out there whose are feeling audio file deprived while RPGMP3 sits in development limbo, we have new audio for you (courtesy of Google Drive as downloadable MP3 files).
Sugar Fuelled Gamers presents Kingmaker, a Pathfinder Adventure Path (run in 3.5 DnD). As of this posting, it sits at 34 episodes, and we intend to play the campaign to the finish. Until RPGMP3 rises from it's grave like the altered beast of yore, this thread is to serve as the new episode update, and general discussion thread for anyone who wants to comment! Enjoy!
The River Kingdoms are a constantly shifting group of city-states, kingdoms, and fiefdoms, rising and falling through the machinations of would-be conquerors, wars, assassinations, games of politics, and dangerous monsters. South of Brevoy sit the Stolen Lands – stolen from what and when are a matter of debate – currently overrun by bandits and monsters. Brevoy seeks to aid in the establishment of new kingdoms, buffer states, run by anyone strong and clever enough to carve a kingdom out of the wilderness. Kaylen Thorne, the mercenary who would be king, believes he is that man. Herein lies his tale - of wilderness exploration, monsters, politics, romantic entanglements, ancient gods, and war. Heavy is the head that wears the crown…

Starring: Helen as Kaylen Thorne, half-orc Fighter; Jared as GM / Tristain Thorne (human bard) / Korwin Steelriver (dwarf cleric of Pharasma) / Bryn (half-elf monk) / Michaela Morag (Mysterious Rogue/Cleric)
System: A pre-written Adventure Path written for 3.5, backwards converted and run in 3.5 with a few Pathfinder options thrown in.
Special Notes: This is a solo game – one GM, one player (husband and wife). To help our lead character Kaylen out, he gets a rotating cast of four main NPCs as his party. To save us a lot of headaches, only one of them goes adventuring with him at a time, run by the GM. We have previously run through the Jade Regent adventure path – alas, unrecorded – like this previously. We began recording a few sessions into Book 2, and Session Zero is a short recap of what came previously.
Subsystems: A homebrewed version of the relationship mechanics from Jade Regent, where Kaylen gains Relationship Points and bonus abilities with his fellow NPCs, and Harrow cards used as Hero Points.
Frequency of sessions: Varies, but usually once every two weeks or so.
Length of sessions: Usually sits around the 2.5-3 hr mark, but these can vary wildly. We play in and around schedules whenever we have free uninterrupted time, so our game lengths are pretty swingy.
Special Thanks To:
- Paizo, for an excellent Adventure Path, and the Paizo forums for several variations to improve it further.
- Intro music "The Hunt" by BrunuhVille https://www.youtube....h?v=sonvlSvpH2w used with permission under Creative Commons License.
- RPGMP3, but particularly Lockhart and the Yorkton Gamer's Guild, whose Jade Regent podcast inspired us to take a crack at running it as a solo adventure. This has led us to literally hundreds of hours of happy roleplaying (and Lockhart's Sandru Vhiski, who leaped in one form or another into several campaigns) - thanks guys!
