Hey there, everyone!

 

Early next week we'll be releasing the next update for Pathfinder Adventures! Not only will this update include Adventure Deck 3, The Hook Mountain Massacre, but we'll also be addressing issues you have all found as well as issues we've come across while testing. Now without further ado, let's get this party started!

 

NEW

 

Looking for what will be new come patch 1.0.3? You can check it out here!

 

- Adventure Deck 3, The Hook Mountain Massacre!

  • ‚ÄčCharacter Roles! When you complete the final scenario of the adventure, you'll unlock role specializations for your characters. Will Merisiel become a Thief or an Acrobat? Will Kyra go down the path of an Exorcist or a Healer? The choice is yours!
  • 5 new scenarios, including the game-changing "Here Comes the Flood!"
  • 4 new locations!
  • 4 new maps!
  • Over 40 new monsters, henchmen, and villains!
  • More weapons, spells, items, loot and more!

- Tier 3 Quest mode now available! A different take on the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game formula, take a group and level them up in adventures that are apart from story mode! Now with more ogres.

TOP COMMUNITY ISSUES

 

These are issues you have all helped to bring to our attention. We can't thank you enough for your feedback on the game! These five issues have been the most discussed here on the forum and these, along with many more, will be fixed when 1.0.3 goes live!

 

- Progression Break when unable to acquire Rewards:
  • Fixed in Quest Mode and Story mode.  This includes issues where a rewarded card would fly off the screen and issues where a selected character simply wouldn't receive a reward.
- Characters who die in a scenario can now properly gain their rewards upon successfully replaying the scenario.
  • This fix is unfortunately not retroactive
- Salvaging Gold:
  • Now correctly grants the gold it says it is
  • Salvage Values now correct
- Daily Gold Timer
  • Issues with the timer resetting or being inaccurate should be resolved.
- Difficulty selecting characters on Character Selection
  • The game should better detect when characters are being dragged to the party slots

Will cloud save be enabled for experienced characters in quest mode as well ? That's characters probably played many times over than story mode.

Not at the moment, currently this feature only works for Story mode, but we are working on having it work for Quest mode as well.

How is the cross-platform option coming along so that I can play on an Android tablet and continue the story (with all gold, treasure chests and vault of cards intact) on an iPad?

Wow! Welp, me and my predictions that we wouldn't see this till second half of June are sure looking pretty stupid right about now. :p You guys never cease to amaze. I don't know how you managed to do all the stuff in AD3 AND keep up with new features and bug fixes all in under a month.

 

Could the whole game be out by the end of the summer? Could we be seeing Skull and Shackles in 2017? I didn't think it was possible, but now maybe I do!

Is a universal Win10 app planned? I'd really love to play Pathfinder on both my Windows Phone and my PC. :)

This is actually wrong.  Arcane blast wasn't properly adding the Magic trait, and is not supposed to add the Arcane Trait.

>>This includes issues where a rewarded card would fly off the screen and issues where a selected character simply wouldn't receive a reward.

 

So I have this problem in Quest mode and there are no workarounds which have fixed this issue. I can't even quit the game, have to shut off the ipad all together

 

Will the patch fix the issue if we are currently stuck with it or will I have to re-install the app and if so, won't I lose all my characters?

 

Thanks

Ok, this is WAY faster than I expected! :D

Some questions on Cloud saves:

Is there a limited to how many parties you can have in story mode? I have like 6 or 7 across 3 devices. Will they all fit into the Cloud saves?

And how does the cloud save work with offline play? I assume it will sync the newest version of each group once the device I last played on goes online again?

I'm really happy about the new scenario being added, but I do not see any response to the issues with Lini and Seelah on IOS. Lini's dice pool seems to act funny as you go deeper into her discards to use her various powers. For Seelah, when you use her power that lets you discard a card from the top of her deck, the check often changes to combat when facing a monster, even if combat isn't an available option. For instance, fighting a Harpy or any of the beginning/end of turn checks after facing a bane. Also, the banes that have the difficulty increased by the adventure deck number do not actually have this applied to them.

This one is known. They ARE applied, the problem is that it's added silently (since the app can do that), and you have to notice that they're getting a bump by knowing what the base was.  Some indication that the number printed isn't the base would absolutely help, but so far I haven't seen a reported case where there was an SS that showed it was incorrect after this was accounted for.

This was an error in our notes. It has been corrected! Good catch!

Great news, great fixes, pleased to hear it's coming already!

 

It's going to be kind of odd having role cards and no AD4 to use them on, but I'd rather get AD3 now than wait longer for 3+4, so that's fine :)
