Starting RW - so many questions...
 
Hi there!

So, many years after the KS, I finally managed to work with RW.
I have a top tier cloud service for the life of my account, so I think I am fine here. A couple of questions arose already, and I figured I ask you fine guys of these boards.

1) Do my players need to buy the Player Version, or will the infos be accessible via Internet?

2)Content Market? Is this a thing already?

3) My most urgent question:
I want to start inserting Infos into RW. I dm "Curse of the Crimson Throne". I am a bit of a loss, how to do it. Not inserting the Info, but as we will play more campaigns on Golarion (the world), I have no idea if I could just create a realm called GOLARION which I will use for all future campaign, or if a single CotCT realm would be better. What I am basicly asking is (I think) how to seperate world-infos (useable in all campaigns) from campaign-info.
I am sure somehone has made this experience and could tell me, what's the better way to approach this...

4) Thank you so much for your patience and help!

Statement: I have a top tier cloud service for the life of my account, so I think I am fine here.
Response: Cloud subscriptions have been frozen for quite some time now. Apparently they will resume around the time when the Content Market goes live, so soon most likely. A great time to have that life time sub.

1) Do my players need to buy the Player Version, or will the infos be accessible via Internet?
A) Currently yes the players need to have a copy of the Player Version in order to accessed shared info.

2) Content Market? Is this a thing already?
A) Not really but sort of yes. It's there. There are four free content packs available. It could drop tomorrow for all we know. Last info we had was it should have dropped last month from memory but they are having issues with the Paizo API system that's designed to verify pdf ownership. If you check THIS link though the community have some shared content.

3) I want to start inserting Infos into RW. I dm "Curse of the Crimson Throne". I am a bit of a loss, how to do it. Not inserting the Info, but as we will play more campaigns on Golarion (the world), I have no idea if I could just create a realm called GOLARION which I will use for all future campaign, or if a single CotCT realm would be better.

A) I would start with the Crimson Throne. Capture all the information related to Golarion as you go though and start building the information about the locations. This can then be re-used in future campaigns by simply exporting the content you want to re-use and importing it into a new realm.

4) Thank you so much for your patience and help!
You are more than welcome. Here's some more stuff to help you on your way.

Wait. There's a discord server? When did I miss that?

daplunk November 14th, 2017 09:54 AM

Yeah someone created it a bit 2 months back and posted the link in the FB group.

Haha yeah i used IRC a bit for RW but it really is a dated technology now. I still find Facebook to be the best platform. It's where I have the more engaging conversations for sure.

I pop in periodically to the IRC. I connect and disconnect my laptop at work from it's docking station all day long so I lose connection to the IRC. So I manage to get on about once a week.

How does someone get lifetime cloud service?

Go back in time and sign up for the maximum level kickstarter for RealmWorks six years ago.

Six YEARS?

Just what is the development timescale for updates? I'm not complaining, trust me, i'm not. How often do new updates come? I literally JUST GOT Realmworks, and i've seen some errors. Mostly with interfacing with Herolab in 5e D&D, Custom Language, Custom Language, Custom Language, Custom Language, No spells, no equipment, just raw stats. The statblock errors from herolab cross into Realmworks.

Like i said, i just got this, so is there a way to edit that? What languages the Jabberwock knows when i created it through monster-builder, as well as what spells the Ghostlord can cast? Is there a way i can add that stuff in? It's not much help if i still have to have all this in PDF or word document.
