The last story I completed as a GM was a Dragonlance Price of Courage game and I've always thought of this song as the song for both the group of players and the end of the story, which was epic. Maybe a bit too mainstream but I love it.

I also pick songs for most of my characters, some NPCs, locations and events.
I LOVE Rhapsody of Fire!
Great musical taste then! ;)

Seconded!

What kind of weapon would be best used to mimic the Dragonslayer Swordspear (i.e. a weapon with a greatsword-sized blade fixed to a spear-like haft)? Or would this be one of those moments where the best solution would be "use the Weapon Master's Handbook's weapon creation rules to make your own and run it by your GM?"

Is there an Adimarchus equivalent in Pathfinder?

Not really.

Adimarchus is a demon prince of madness. We don't have demon princes in Pathfinder, first of all, so that part doesn't work. Beyond that, the closes thematic analog would be Lamashtu, since she's the Abyssal demon divinity associated with madness and insanity, but she's obviously much more than that and much more powerful than Adimarchus.

No Demon Princes? What are Nocticula and Baphomet and Deskari, then?

Sure, why not? It wouldn't give you any advantages, though.

When I asked about the shape of the skane (the specific style of dagger that's Pharasma's sacred weapon), you stated that it's curved like a crescent moon. Could you elaborate a bit more on that please? Is the sharp edge on the inside of the crescent or the outside (or is it double-edged)? What makes its shape different from a sickle?

Having just read the villain codex, I now want to play a mirror witch in this AP. Specifically, one with the Formerly MindSwapped campaign trait. I see that mirror patron as a way to really play up that particular trait, especially if the GM decided that none of the other characters ever see anything if they look into the mirror. Is the communion with the mirror eniterely within the witch's mind? Are they just crazy? What about when the more esoteric abilities start coming online, like the scrying?

Add on that this could be a conduit for anything the GM cares to tell the group but has no easy way to convey. In that, it would be no different than a cleric or inquisitor's patron deity sending them dreams, but possibly a little creepier.

How would you drag the mirror around when you travel?

I'm noticing a pattern where no matter what my PC's initial personality when I first write them up, they soon fall into glib sarcasm. Have I been playing too much BioWare?

Cheliax, Empire of Devils SPOILERS!:
In one of the older Player Companion books, Cheliax, Empire of Devils, a story is recounted of the Hellfire Redeemer, allegedly the sword of a Sarenite knight who attempted to slay Abrogail Thrune I, only to be so enraptured by her beauty that he slew his own companions at her command, their blood staining his shining sword black and red, and thus he became the first Hellknight. The story is known fiction, especially since the Hellknights actually predate Abrogail I's reign, yet the Hellfire Redeemer IS real, an intelligent sword appearing to the desperate and naive to corrupt their souls as they carve a place in Cheliax's history before disappearing again in search of its next wielder.

My question is this: In the book, the Hellfire Redeemer is described as a longsword, but that doesn't seem to make much sense given its owner worshiped Sarenrae, for whom the scimitar is the supreme weapon. Was this a case of miscommunication between writers or something? Early writing before all Sarenrae's details were codified? Would it make more sense for the Hellfire Redeemer to be a scimitar if I wanted to give it to an evil PC?

About how many years does Sargava have before the exorbitant amount of protection money they pay to the Shackles bankrupts its economy?

Serpent's Skull SPOILERS!:
What I read in [i]Serpent's Skull made it seem like the nation's living on borrowed time, as they're desperate enough to try the longshot of sending an expedition to plunder Saventh-Yi just to scrape together enough to make the payment this year, especially since the Pirates themselves are competing for the very same treasure.

If a Dongun Hold dwarf decided to introduce firearm technology to other dwarves, say in places like Janderhoff or the Five Kings Mountains, would Dongun Hold be cool with that? I'm not sure how closely the Grand Duchy and the original inventors of firearms guard their monopoly on their production.
Firearms have already spread throughout the Inner Sea region enough that Dongun Hold would probably be annoyed but not more than that, unless the dwarf were trying to cut into Dongun Hold's cash flow and profits maybe?

They have? I thought according to Skull and Shackles they sent out hit-squads to take out anyone using firearms without exclusive contracts with them, and that's why Golarion's militaries haven't adopted firearms en-masse and moved from Medieval II: Total War tech level to Empire: Total War tech level.

I've gotten Jolon mostly completed. I just have his equipment and his derrived stats to finish along with his background.

Turns out my top two abilities are a tie between CHA and CON. The Theater still kind of works, but The Survivor works too (especially considering his role in the party is basically to take everyone else's damage for them).

Another question: how serious are Aldori swordlords about their weapon of choice? Is it like Dragon Age's Qunari or the Nyueng Bao swordmasters in Glen Cook's Black Company series ("Your sword is a sacred extension of your soul/being and it is taboo to wield any other weapon and you may never use it for mundane cutting.") or more like real world samurai ("Your sword is a symbol of your honor and authority, and should be the only weapon you duel with, but you're still expected to be familiar with other weapons like polearms and archery, since not every battle is a duel.")?

Something I've always wanted to do is combine the Halfling Opportunist and Bellflower Tiller prestige classes to create THE HALFLINGEST HALFLING THAT EVER HALFLINGED, and I was wondering if that'd produce a competent PC. Could I make a good archer with this setup? As far as base classes to start with, I'm inclined to use Slayer, especially the Vanguard archetype, to create a Spartacus/Robin Hood/Bandobras "Bullroarer" Took figure leading a halfling slave revolt. Would this be functional, or would it suck?

What type of armor do you think this guy is wearing?

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'm interested in creating a PC based on the Magnelwyr gunners of Medieval II: Total War's Britannia campaign. Obviously the easiest way is to play a Gunslinger of some sort, but I'm curious about the specific accouterments of the gentlemen in the picture.

The guns shown aren't muskets, as the Magnelwyr is an early adopter before true musketeers are refined (as evidenced in other parts of Medieval 2 with the Musketeers of cultures like Spain, the Turks, the Italian city-states and Russia), but they're also not bulky enough to match the culverin in the books, since other handgun units in the game have much bigger weapons that truly look like "hand bombards." Thus I'm led to conclude that the guns in this picture are arquebuses, and I'm not sure Pathfinder has those statted out.

As far as their armor goes, I'm not sure if that's a breastplate they're wearing or something like half-plate armor. It's only covering their chest with gauntlets and a helmet, but from what I've read of the breastplates in Ultimate Equipment, they don't have a backpiece, and the chain under there in the picture makes it seem bulkier than the breastplate is.

Anyone have any suggestions as to how to set up a gunslinger character to match the Magnelwyr in the picture? Obviously I'd need mithral armor to use any gunslinger stuff, since while Gun Tank exists, my understanding is it's not that good. Thank you! :)

Would the best way to emulate the medieval handgun or arquebus be Pathfinder's culverin?

God I hope not. I think we've said enough about flumphs. I'd rather not spend more of Paizo's energy building up the lore of a goofy monster we can only use because of the SRD—if we're gonna build lore for a goofy monster, I'd rather it be something we made up ourselves.
I know I'm wandering into dangerous, talking-down-your-own-brand territory here, but are there any Paizo-created monsters you consider well crafted but flumph-level goofy?
Depends on who you ask. For me, I'd certainly put leshies in this category, but I know other folks here love them.

Speaking as one of those folks, THEY'RE ADORABLE! Right up there with pseudodragons and their house drake cousins for Pathfinder's cutest creatures! :D

Now for a question: Is the Lands of the Linnorm Kings undergoing a paradigm shift away from raiding towards more trading and stuff? That seems to be the vibe I got from reading stuff about the place, that the jarls who represent raiding culture are getting old and dying off, and visionaries like White Estrid are leading them in a new direction?
