I'm still looking forward to this. I would be happy to just get the humanoids and unique creatures per book first, followed by the scene scripts later.

I'm looking to start running Extinction Crisis in about a month, and i will tell you, it is going to be a hard change from running an AP in HLC with the encounter pack. I am very much interested in that sort of content coming to HLO and would buy it up in a heartbeat.

Just wondering if there's any new word on this. Extinction Curse has come and gone, and Agents of Edgewatch 1 has arrived. I noticed that there's been comments about Lost Omens: Legends projections. Any projections for Age of Ashes GM content yet?

I think the 'older' adventure paths will not be converted. Why should they make the effort for a older product when they are behind on Corebooks. and are re-doing the data files.

There is no profit in it for the time it will take to convert 12 books (Age of Ashes and Extinction curse) for maybe a couple of people.

I wish they just would say it and not state that it will come later.

Most people I know in the community are either just starting EC (Book 1-2) or are about halfway through AoA (Book 3-4). Are you seeing something different in your community?

APs take a long time to run. My group started AoA on launch day about a year ago. We play ~8 hours a week and are just starting the last book. Most people don't play as much as we do, so I'm willing to bet that many GMs still want AoA and EC.

I know I still want it. We started on AoA in January after completing The Fall of Plaguestone. We are in part 3 of book 2.

In order, the things I want in the GM content are:
  1. New creatures (Are all these already included as part of the player content?)
  2. Equipment the player characters can use (Are all these already included as part of the player content?)
  3. NPCs
  4. Hazards
  5. New spells
  6. Scene scripts
  7. Campaign overview & setup
I don't know what else might be included in the GM content.

I expect the campaign overview and setup may be required to manage the scene scripts, but together these are a low priority for me. I've already created folders for each book, subfolders for each part, and scene scripts for each location. I have some extra scenes scripts to manage recurring events, such as patrols.

I haven't found an easy way to build some of the NPCs, so getting them will be very useful for me. I want to be able to use them outside the scene scripts so that I can include them in future books if the opportunity comes up. I would be happy if they are released progressively rather than waiting for all the GM content to be ready.

I start running Age of Ashes tomorrow (I'd been running my other sub-group through converted d20 modules, and this one through PFS scenarios up to now). Doing the HLO and Virtual Map work will be a chore for sure, but at least the Gamemastery Guide has good tools for building NPCs (except for the part about not having the core Ancestries in the NPC builder).

Currently Running: Pathfinder Second Edition
Currently Playing:
Pathfinder First Edition
Former Games: D&D (4e & 5e), Mutants & Masterminds (2E & 3E), Savage Worlds

Definitely the NPCs for me. It's a giant pain trying to make some of them, since you're not even sure you'll be able to add some of the abilities that are there. I've gotten lazy and have started using placeholders while I write stuff on a notecard even, since it happens so frequently.

Basically, if it's not in a bestiary or a toolbox and has stats, I want it badly.

I am on book 3 and it's a pain to convert all NPC's but it's not that hard.

If they somehow made a function so that you can share content that would help then you could have a community of module makers or a marketplace like D&D Beyond.
