Dang, I knew I forgot someone. (And femdom's one of my things, too.)

Tacticslion, I know you've already done so much, but could you help out here?

Also, Paizo, could you let him edit his post so it's nice and comprehensive? Pleeeeease?

Wow.

I am saving this.

You are everyone's best friend now.

James doesn't want to answer sex questions anymore, presumably because now that Pathfinder's mainstream the Sparrows'll raise a fuss if they see anything too edgy. You're not a Paizo representative, though, and seem open-minded...

Let's say one were to date one of Pathfinder's sex deities, with all that implies. How, in more detail than terse answers (though not inappropriate-for-the-boards explicit), would a time of passion with the following go?

1. Arshea

2. Lymnieris

3. Calistria

4. Nocticula

5. Socothbenoth

6. Belial

7. Zepar

James, then what is so bad about being damned to hell?

Think of the most painful, humiliating, agony-inducing thing that could ever happen to you. Not me, not someone else, but YOU.

Now imagine that lasting forever.

Now imagine it lasting longer.

Now imagine it getting worse with each passing second.

That's what's bad about being damned to Hell. It's worse than that.

So why would anyone without an immortality plan knowingly serve Hell?

I likely asked this before, but it boggles me that much.

I actually I actually don't have an opinion, because I don't feel comfortable getting involved in this situation; sorry.

Well, that sucks. :( Now I wish I showed these links to you out of context so you’d at least give them a peek. At least you're apologetic, unlike that guy

But on to less morbid topics.

Adventurer’s Armory gives the base price for slaves, but not any multipliers for qualities. e.g., both a goblin “hero” and an aasimar “dancing” boy would be considered specialized slaves. What sort of multipliers would you give based on slave qualities?

Speaking of being evil, what sort of reforms does your Nocticulan bard have planed once she takes over Cheliax?

Oh! Have you ever thought about staging murderplays based on Nocticula’s triumphs? (In-game, of course!)

No, my response was NOT intended to be intentionally hurtful.

I apologize for coming across as hurtful.

If you or anyone DOES have a situation where they feel threatened on these boards or at a Pathfinder event at a convention, you should absolutely let us know—private email or PM to us is a much better bet than a public post on the boards.

If there's a situation beyond Paizo in real life that's dangerous, you should also absolutely seek help as best you can. Knowing nothing about the situation you're in, there's not much I can do to help, but I'll try to be less flippant in my responses here in the future.

Stay safe!

Okay, thanks. :)

So you know the problem's thankfully Not on these boards, nor does it involve physical danger. I’m in a niche-niche art club where the popular kid accused me, without evidence, of sabotaging a writing project (that I put a lot of work in) and driving out a respected member (who told me that wasn’t the case). Said popular kid has pretty much convinced the club that anyone who speaks out against him is a mean-spirited loser who only wants to attack them.

Which leads to these questions…

What’s your opinion of a $700+ seminar that puts participants through 4 days of starvation and sleep deprivation, lots of vigorous dancing, and has them mentally traumatize themselves as a group?

Is there an evil deity with the Community domain and if not why?
Community doesn't lend itself well to evil acts.

Personally, I think lawful evil deities would love the Community domain. "Community" is the perfect purr word to propagate the image that the group is all righteous happy together, when it's really just a tool of Dear Leader -- who loves to talk about how anyone who disagrees with him is a threat to the community. Yes, this is based on personal experience (not at Paizo, before you worry).

Thoughts?

Also, how does one deal with such a leader when "just walk away" isn't an option?

It's possible to justify any deity having the Community domian, or any other domain that doesn't have actual alignment restrictions (Law, Chaos, Good, Evil), with good enough writing.

How one deals with a leader when just walk away doesn't do it? Depends on your nature, but two options that come into mind are "Suck it up and deal with it" and "Take over and do a better job."

Could you rephrase or clarify "Suck it up and deal with it?" The seem like rather (hopefully unintentionally) hurtful and dismissive words to someone who's been emotionally abused, and unable to voice their concerns to the community for fear of ostracism.

If I'm creating a sex-themed demon lord (i.e., a CR 26+ succubus), does one of the ares of concern have to be about sex?

Yes, this should be something I can figure out on my own, but you know how fussy RPG rules can be.


I’ve some questions about Alushinyrra, and related topics, that you’ll hopefully be able to answer. Hope the 10-batch isn’t too much.

1. How do you pronounce Alushinyrra?

2. Besides the usual suspects, lust demons and their spawn, what other demons make up the majority of Alushinyrra population?

3. How does Alushinyrra get its food? Mortal slaves need to eat, after all.

4. Where do citizens of Alushinyrra get their money from?

5. What other cities does Alushinyrra trade with?

6. Wouldn’t Raknus Island (Pathfinder #76, p.72) have something going on, given it was made from the demon lord of alleyways, thievery, and urban decay?

7. What happens to the soul of someone who dies in Alushinyrra (or the Midnight Isles, or anywhere in the Abyss for that matter)?

8. How powerful, or lustful, does one have to be to become a succubus (or incubus) when they die?

9. Are there any other type of lust demon? I don’t mean in Pathfinder, but possible in existence.

10. Assuming a chaotic evil alignment, what would happen to an exceptionally powerful and lustful wizard when she finally gets killed. Based on my question history, I’m sure you know who I’m talking about. ;)


So, how's the afterlife and the outer planes going to work in Starfinder?


James, how many empyreal lords will Bestiary 6 have?

Also, should we capitalize "empyreal lords" or not? I'm guessing no since it's lower-case in the supplements.

Also, yay for more demigods.

Bestiary 6 will have more demigods inside its covers than any other single book we've ever published. Beyond the two I've mentioned, it should come as no surprise we're not stopping at just those two—we're presenting stats for all 8 Archdevils (the 9th being Asmodeus and, at deity level, no stats work for him) and all 4 Horsemen.

There's more, though. Some will be demigods people have heard a lot about. Some will be brand new ones. Now's not the time to reveal that much more information though. Stay tuned, though!

Are you or Wes statting up the Archdevils?

Nope. But again, as mentioned above, I'm overseeing all of the stats and developing them all (which does mean rebuilding/rewriting as needed).

Nope.

I'm developing every monster in the book though, which as far as I know is the FIRST time we've had a single developer develop every monster in a Bestiary, which should go a LONG way toward making things all feel of a kind, unlike the disconnect between Empyreal Lords and Demon Lords that snuck into the book in Bestiary 4.

THANK YOU!

*ahem*

Will...the previous four statted empyreal lords (Cernunnos, Korada, and Vildeis in B4, Andoletta in Heaven Unleashed) get errata eventually?

I've been dancing around the topic not because I have nothing to say, but because I know what sort of information and details you are looking for about succubi and that topic isn't one I can really talk about on these boards without risking offending someone. Check out the succubus chapter in Demons Revisited for my thoughts on the topic.

Succubui are NOT "lust incarnate." They're demonic spirits formed from lustful souls. We don't have a "lust incarnate" creature int he game because including graphically sexual content in Pathfinder is not part of our goal for the game.

EDIT: IF the USA (and by extension lots of folks on these boards) weren't so knee-jerk freakout prone about talking about sex, then we wouldn't have restrictions on these boards about the topic, and I could go into further detail about succubi and their "mating" habits. But since that's not the world we live in, and since as creative director I have to speak for the company on matters Pathfinder related, I simply do not feel comfortable breaking the company's decision about how the topic of sex is handled. I'm not interested in going too far on this subject only to have posts start getting blocked or getting a "talking to" from management. And based on your post history and the tenor and nature and theme of where your questions generally go and what they're about, I can't help but feel that is the direction you want me to go.

And I can't. This is not the place, and since I represent Paizo and Paizo's decisions are what they are, there ISN'T a place for me to publicly go on about the details of succubus sexual activities. As much as the subject of how sex and magic and supernatural elements interest me or you or anyone. Maybe some day if I'm not working for Paizo OR if Paizo changes its policy on adult content of that nature involving Pathfinder, that'll change, but that's not today. Sorry.

Fortunately the Internet and fiction and mythology are full of inspiring stories and pictures about the subject.

I see…quite a lot actually. A pity we don’t have someone like Cersei to take care of those annoying Sparrows for us. (On the plus side, we don’t have someone like Cersei. Then again, we did arm some sketchy people during the Cold War, which bit us in the towers.) Thankfully, Demons Revisited was very informative. ;)

Anyhow, thank you very much for your through and thoughtful response, and a belated thanks for answering my other questions as well (I should thank you more). I have some follow-up questions, that I hope you’re able to answer.

1. When you mention getting a “talking to,” has that happened before? And recently?

2. Would PM be a permissible place to go on about the details of succubi, and similar topics?

Since succubi always have to drain their partners, how do they keep favorites around?

By not normally having favorites. That's kind of a human take on romance and sex. Succubi aren't human in that regard, and their "favorite" is generally "whoever they're draining the life out of RIGHT NOW" and that favorite gets replaced the instant they die and they find another.

There would be cases where they do form favorites, I guess, rarely, in which case they wouldn't drain the victim to death and/or would take steps to ensure the victim was immune to level drain in the first place, I guess, but that'd be rare in the grand scheme of things. Life force is for eating, not for making friends with.

By "favorite," I meant someone the succubus would see as an interesting character with an attractive body they'd want to keep abusing. You're saying a succubus would have that kind of favorite?

Good they can alter self and not drain their victims, though. I wish I'd thought of that.

Succubi normally wouldn't have favorites like that, no. That's more of a vampire thing than a succubus thing. It's not that they CAN'T, but that they usually don't, because 99.99999999% of the time, mortals bore them beyond being delicious.

I thought succubi were supposed to be lust incarnate, but the way you're describing them has them looking more like nabassus, or at the very least only into snuff. Would you explain succubi better?

There's a lot more leniency granted to demigods here, of course; a demigod is more allowed to directly interact with mortals (as seen with Wrath of the Righteous and Deskari's meddling), since unlike deities, demigods have stats and can thus be successfully opposed by powerful mortals. Wrath is proof; the fact that Deskari directly meddled and in theory ends up being killed by mortals is more or less enough to keep most demigods from bothering to risk such a move.

Would that explain why some divine beings, particularly ancient ones, stay at demigod level?

How often do PCs use poison in the games you've played? How effective was it?
Not that often. Poison is more effective the longer a character is "on-screen," along with most forms of ability damage/drain; it's very much meant to be a tool against PCs and not so much a tool FOR PCs really.

Because the slow damage from poison becomes moot alongside the usual ways enemies of PCs get killed, correct?

In what scenario would poison be useful for PCs? An intrigue-heavy campaign where hack & slay isn't often a viable option?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I've been reading through part 3 of Hell's Vengeance and I couldn't help but notice that the PCs don't muck about with the town's people like they do in the previous adventures. So...maybe the Brimstone Den (Wayfinder 11, p.12) wouldn't get bothered?

Then again, there is the Glorious Reclamation. How would they react to the establishment? I'm...hopeful they wouldn't brutally raid the place like they did the Forbidden Sisters’ Ballroom (Pathfinder 105, p.11).

Alas, Arshea's faith proselytizes in ways that would get censored on these boards. Use your imagination! :-P

And it's not more popular for lots of reasons, but one that stands out is that sex scares lots of people. Another is that a lot of other people are frightened by equality. And another is that the faith might just not be all that into being popular. They have other things on their mind.

If sex scares a lot of people, than why is Calistria more popular? Al the clerics I've seen tend to be vindictive dominatrices likely to sell my personal information. And yet the pretty, gender-bending angel worshipers who want to make love to people are the scary ones?

How do cults of empyreal lords tend to proselytize/evangelize? I know they aren't terribly prolific in most cases, but I'm pondering a warpriest of Ragathiel and was wondering how she'd be most likely to have stumbled into the faith without being raised in it. I know Magnimar is one of the bigger clumps of mystery cult activity, and she'll be passing through there. But would she be most likely to come across a pamphlet, a street preacher, gossip in a tavern, a bard's stories...?
It'd vary wildly; there are dozens of them, after all, and they're not all the same. The one constant would be that they'd do so without being evil about it. Ragathiel's faith, being a more military type of deity, probably gathers new people by showing their prowess and goodness on the battlefield or in times of war.

How does Arshea's faith proselytize. Please answer with as much detail as possible!

This raises another question: why isn't Arshea's faith more popular? Given what it offers, you'd think it'd be in demand more.

I wouldn't call it the Skyrim experience at all, since Skyrim doesn't allow you to pursue a seduction of the nation's leader and assume control of it all.

Arshea gets a paragraph in p.21 of Faiths of Purity. The information differs little from newer lore, but the last sentence has a bit of trivia, and an explanation for Arshea's favored weapon:

"Your greeting to one another is an intricate, four-part bow, and you can sometimes tell other worshipers by the flails they wield—symbolically turning the slavers’ scourges back on them."


You mentioned several times that one of the reason TSR got into financial trouble was because they fragmented the player base with so many settings (Mystara, Greyhawk, Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, Spelljammer, Dark Sun, Planescape, Birthright, some others I'm forgetting). While having two settings (Pathfinder and Starfinder) isn't quite so many, are you worried about fragmentation happening again? Why or why not?

Still, would you pass this on to them? If Paizo’s going to portray exemplars of the good alignments as cool, they need cool stats to match.
