This thread seems really quiet compared to James and others. Do you think this lets you get more work done?

Also, I'm wondering how you interpret the Divine Source mythic ability, as you were the one who did the Walkena part of Undead Unleashed.

(Note: I'm not looking for a FAQ or a rules clarification here, I'm just wondering how/why you interpreted it in a particular way.)

The caster level seems to go off mythic tier rather than HD for his SLAs, and it uses Charisma for the save DCs.

I usually take the Divine Source ability to mean the user can use any spell of a level granted by the domains, but only once per day (adding more spells as new domains/subdomains are added with subsequent picks of Divine Source). So, for example, as Walkena has Evil, Law and Sun, he could use create undead, hold monster and fire seeds, but could only use one 6th level SLA from that list of three each day (so if one day he used hold monster in the morning, he couldn't use create undead that afternoon because he's already used his SLA for that level for the day). Walkena has a much more limited array than that, though?

I think that this thread is slow mainly because people don't have as many questions for me. James' thread certainly has more momentum than any other, and since he's the Creative Director and was one of the core crew who came up with Pathfinder and Golarion he's a good choice of someone to ask when people have questions. It might let me get more work done, but I often check the boards at home and one weekends, not just at work. I'm also pretty good at managing my time and if I felt like I was giving too much attention to the boards and my work flow was suffering, I'd correct that.

Regarding Walkena, I based caster level off of tier because pretty much all of the language in that ability bases everything else off of tier, which made sense to me. I used Charisma for the save DCs because SLAs almost always use Charisma.

Your interpretation of the divine source path ability is correct. What is represented in Walkena's statblock is simply me making the spell-like ability choices ahead of time to make a GM's job a bit easier. Part of that is also due to space and that we don't have a standardized way to show that kind of thing in a concise manner. If I would have listed each of the nine spells available for all three domains it would have taken up a big chunk of that column.

Divine source is a cool ability that allows us to tell some interesting stories, but I kinda wish that divine source had a bit more explanation to it.

Some of that depends on where you get your tattoo and who does the work, and how well you deal with pain/discomfort. There are definitely certain spots that cane be more painful than others, but I don't think how lean a person is has as much to do with it than some of the other factors. (I only have a few tattoos, but I'm a thin guy as well.)

Are the oracle's curses considered to be racially specific then? I could see the Infested curse working for a Rage Prophet wannabe who doesn't bathe very often, or the Cold-Blooded curse working for any oracle from a tropical climate. What I am trying to figure out is whether those are merely slightly unusual options to pick or the sort of house ruling that would be involved in generalizing racially specific feats or archetypes.

I can't answer that for sure, since I didn't buy the book. I *did* take a look at it, and IIRC all game mechanics were tied to a race. But does it really matter? It's not for players anyway, so you could just decide that, hmm, a dwarf NPC oracle from an arctic region has Cold-Blooded curse, right? (meaning that a keen-eyed player couldn't complain about a dwarf NPC having a curse normally meant for a monster race)

I'll help answer that since I happen to have the book in front of me at the moment.

The introduction on page 5—New Rules wrote:
Many of these options are restricted specifically to a given race, but some can be taken by any characters who meet the requirements to do so.

Please stop crapping on each other's wishes and please stop sniping at each other in this thread.

Paizo Employee Developer

Sure thing.

The Vineyards are directly west of Hands of the Community. The Playgrounds are at the southwest intersection of the road that runs east to west from the High Home to The Perfect Map. The Bell Tower is the large U-shaped building with the round part in the center that is more or less in between Bardleigh Chippers and the Tannery Compound.

Paizo Employee Developer

The map is correct.

Sorry about that mismatch. I'm not quite sure what happened there.

There are a few reasons, the first of which is space available in those two books. The other major reason is that those entries in the Bestiaries for azatas, archons, and agathions are in setting neutral books, so not all of those empyreal lords are necessarily in Golarion. Those that are we just haven't gotten to yet.

To be honest, it took me a minute or two to figure out where you generated this list from. :)

I wonder if any Paizo staff (excepting Mike Welham, of course) are voting. And I wonder which entry or entries they're voting for...

I've been following this contest since it started and I'm certainly voting. I just haven't made a final decision yet. :)

The robot subtype did first appear in Inner Sea Bestiary, and the subtype was reprinted in Pathfinder #85 Fires of Creation.

In most cases, those locations are not detailed anywhere to date. When the Inner Sea World Guide was written, the campaign setting was still fairly new, and while we wanted to talk about the things already mentioned, we also needed to include things for GMs to flesh out themselves. The only one of those locations in your post that has more information is The Shouk (which was just a small paragraph picked up in the monster entry for ogrekin).

Sorry I can't be more help, but know that those locations can be blank slates for your own imagination.

Also, if you ever want to do a bit of research into Golarion, check out the PathfinderWiki. It can be helpful to reference names quickly or see where more information might be in other books.

Enjoy! :)

You totally should.

Can i assume that each monster has a lair with a map and could be setup for a mini adventure or tied to a larger dungeon/adventure. If so it could be perfect for what i need.

You're right: it won't be popular at all. In fact, it's a pretty sure bet you'll completely derail this topic with that kind of post. Do yourself a favor and delete it.
I'm not trying to derail anything - that seems to me to very clearly be one of the 'irons' Paizo has in the fire... its not occurring by happenstance, its occurring as a result of very conscientious and deliberate planning, something which I'm certain involves much discussion and deliberation... i.e. time. Manhours. In the interest of being inclusive and accepting of all sincerely offered viewpoints, even unpopular ones, why would I feel the need to censor my own?

It takes zero additional "manhours" (interesting term to use in this comment) to make a world that is open and inclusive.

That is a devourer, not a mohrg.
They might have confused the images or simply didnt have an image for Erum-Hel yet. The Wight Queen is the art from the Inner Sea World Guide.

To be clear, the blog post didn't say that it was showing Erum-Hel's art, but rest assured we have the art. We had it months ago. Also, the art for the Wight Mother is new. She is a daughter of Urgathoa, which is a creature that had a creature write up in the Inner Sea World Guide, but that art is not the art from that book. (And she is not a bog standard daughter.)

Well, some questions.

Beyond what in the campaign setting, what other official info available on Arcadia and where?

Since the official info will be very lacking anyway, Anybody got ideas how the cultures of Arcadia should look like?

I was tinkering with an idea of making native american styled character for Kingmaker. Of course she can be a Shoanti. But if she comes from Arcadia it will be a unique approach. How do you think an Arcadian can found herself in Brevoy?

There is very little official information about Arcadia out there. The folks above have noted some things, but in addition to that this thread has some cool and really helpful ideas (plus a few unofficial comments from a couple of developers).

Excerpt from a book
In attempting to merge machinery with flesh, the Technic League conducted dozens of tests over the course of decades before stumbling upon the solution. As a result of some of these tests, you'll sometimes encounter a full grown man with a tiny, baby-sized mechanical arm sprouting from a puckered scar of a shoulder walking down the street in Starfall. Most of these subjects are dead now, but hushed stories on the streets say that there were entire dormitories of these surgical experiments.

This is, of course, not canon. Just helping out with my first idea. I'm all for people not liking the Technic League.

It's a very basic spreadsheet, and I am up to May 16 :( - long way to go yet on this thread... but is this of use to this thread as a general go to check list? If so, I will keep it shared and updated over the next few days to catch up.

I appreciate any and all attempts to collect and organize the data in this thread. :)

Just a quick heads-up, not accusational or anything, but "skraeling" is actually a real world racial slur. It's really unfortunate that it found its way in the campaign setting and slipped into casual use. It's so archaic most people don't know how ugly the connotations behind it really are.

does a quick search of the forums for that word

gets depressed

It was unfortunate that we used it back in the Campaign Setting book and it found its way into the Inner Sea World Guide. However, going forward it will be phased out.
So just Arcadians now? Cool. I can get behind that.

Arcadian is somewhat a blanket term for all the people living on that continent, and there are many different peoples under that umbrella.
