Lirgeni lich Meyi Pahano is one to watch.

Do your research, boys and girls, like I do.

Her entry in the lich article in Carrion Crown (Chapter Six) is downright provocative, if you're a student of campaign lore, secrets, and conspiracies.

And no.. not just because of bone sages.

Ah, dear Meyi.

You could go even further back and nab some inspiration from Deities & Demigods. :)

More to the point, I think that including a gazetteer of the city the first two adventures take place in is far more valuable than an article about old deities. The worship of the old gods isn't a super strong focus in this Adventure Path, but knowing what's up in Wati certainly is (at least in the first two adventures).

As Sutter said above, we are certainly paying attention to this thread to see what people like and don’t like about the new format.

Praise alternating with criticism has been something that has followed the Pathfinder Journal since we first met Eando Kline. While we’ve had fiction in every single Adventure Path since day one, it has changed slightly over the years as we march towards the triple digits. Threads periodically pop up about the Pathfinder Journal, and we were already talking about how we could continue to evolve it before the last one popped up. We paid a lot of attention to that one and even announced our plans in that same thread.

We all (Team AP + Sutter + Wes) talked about what we wanted to do with the Pathfinder Journal, and one of the main things we tried to focus on was giving more material to someone running the Adventure Path. A GM can use the characters, setting, locations, and whatnot to enhance their campaign or they can print out the Journal and give it to their players as a handout in order to get them more involved in the setting and events of the campaign. Going forward we’re likely to evolve the Pathfinder Journal further, and I’ll certainly be paying attention to what people think about what we’ve done so far. Thanks for the feedback.

I believe some of those hints Wes posted on his blog is something he's working on for me and it is not something for Iron Gods.

Was it Wayne Reynolds that drew the art of Areelu Vorlesh on page 59 of the AP?? I really want to know cuz this is the most stunning succubus I have seen in a long while; the look, the posture, the dress, the imposing and slightly charming / horrifying impression she gives away. Quite stunning.
Wayne did her illustration for the cover. I'm not sure who did the one on page 59, but I agree it's quite good.
I'm sure you guys have people in your art department who would know the answer to that question. Honestly, I would really like to know. Thanks!!

I just asked Andrew. The artist is Roberto Pitturru.

There is going to be an article about androids in the first volume of the Iron Gods Adventure Path (Pathfinder #85), and that should answer most of your questions.

(I'm not answering the tortoise question... I see what you're trying to do to me.) ;)

Until then, there has been a lot of discussion about androids (along with some answers from James and myself) in this thread.

Turns out, James is currently running a Temple of Elemental Evil for all the developers. We've just hit second level, so we're still in the moat house. We're playing as having it set on the Isle of Kortos. There might be better places, but it's serving us well so far.

For me, I like the colonial vs native vibe (not savage, key difference). However, I agree that technologically and magically, the Arcadians shouldn't be strictly inferior than everywhere else on Golarion. ...

On a partially selfish note, I really really hope that "help on future books" includes god articles. Those have tended to be the first things I've read in each book that had them, going all the way back to the Desna one. :)

After drying my eyes, I selfishly asked the same thing about the deity articles. :)

Andrew is totally right. There are plenty of opportunities out there for folks that want to freelance, and they won't necessarily just come to you. You gotta get out there and grab them. Turn your experience here into a springboard!
Awesome! I'll definitely get working on this. Any other related advice, Adam, being a pro?

Other folks have covered some of the points, so the biggest advice I can give (in a concise nature so I don't derail this thread) is to find out who is accepting pitches or looking for freelancers. Once you locate a company you want to write for, look at their catalog and get familiar with the styles they use and things they've already published (that way you don't look like a fool pitching something they already published).

Another thing that can be super helpful is becoming friends with other freelancers. When I first started freelancing I was lucky enough to have a few friends that were already doing it, and then I got invited into a freelancers guild called the WereCabbages. Having a group of people to review work, act as fresh eyes, be sanity-checkers, and just the pool of experience was absolutely one of the most helpful things I could have ever had. A lot of our freelancers are friendly with one another and bounce things off each other pretty often. I always encourage that kind of shared learning.

For the most part, the less 'Maztica' / colonials vs. savages it turns out to be, the more I might like it.

As the person in the office most interested in Arcadia, you might like to know that I completely agree with you on this point.

Hey folks! I was going to send emails to a bunch of my freelancers to see who was coming to Seattle for PaizoCon, but I figured it'd be easier if I just made a thread. I also thought it'd be neat for folks to see who of their favorite Pathfinder authors will be at the show.

So, sound off, freelancers! Who's with me!?

Being a fan of folklore monsters, this was the first category of monsters that I got bored of real fast. I've made the joke that there are really only like a dozen monsters, they just have different accents.

The Sodden Lands, as far as I can recall only has a web fiction piece set in it.

Lost Kingdoms has a chapter on it, and though it talks about the lost nations of Lirgen and Yamasa, it spends a fair amount of time talking about its current state.
