When Erik Mona called me during my weekly game of Council of Thieves, I suspected it was for some purpose other than to earn me a free reroll. (Note: Any time a Paizo employee calls you during a Pathfinder game, it is required that your GM allow you one rerolled d20.) Erik’s reason for the call was to ask me to stay in Seattle a week longer than I’d planned after PaizoCon in order to help fill the massive Inner Sea map for the Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Inner Sea Poster Map Folio for release later this year.
But don’t let me discount the huge amount of work that gets done on a daily basis in the Paizo offices, and the vast pile of work yet to do. I have personally gone through every Adventure Path volume through Souls for Smuggler’s Shiv and have mined almost 500 specific, named locations, many of which will appear on the final poster map. Paizo CEO Lisa Stevens has been covering the Pathfinder Modules line and just got through Cheliax in the campaign setting hardcover (the Katharevousa River, which flows by Kintargo, has yet to be tagged on a map, for example). Needless to say, this is a massive project. While there’s still a long way to go, I can already tell that this map will absolutely blow the mind of anyone who’s ever hoarded RPG maps or who (like me) has a penchant for world continuity and canon.
Your double dose of Sodium Pentothal awaits our next CoT game where we will have ways of making you talk ... May the saints of NDA preserve you.
Tell James and the rest that a Cleric, a Paladin and my Evoker are breezing through The Infernal Syndrome sans your misguided Bard who is on a map making holiday and they need to toughen up the APs stat.
So how are you managing to mesh "PathfinderWiki Admin" and "NDA"? Are there not a million things by now that you want to stick in the wiki but you can't?
The location tags I've pulled from canon sources can go up on the wiki if I ever get the time. Anything I'm privy to that hasn't been publicly announced gets to stay in my brain until such time as Paizo decides it can be officially put on the schedule. Honestly, I now see how much specific elements of a product can change over the course of development, anything that isn't finished and out would probably be more work in the long run if it were put up on the wiki early.
