Captain!

Can we at all possibly get a link to the Chelish cities on the Cheliax page? I... didn't see them. (That could be just because I have a poor Perception check.)

It looks like that page needs a bit of an update to bring it up to date with some of the other countries. But for now the Category:Cheliax/Settlements page should help

Garund and Tian Xia are not the problem, or rather it isn't a problem that they are really different than Avistan. The problem are how different yet limited nations right next to each other are. Cheliax as a nation (meaning people self identify as Cheliax not necessarily an independent country) has existed for more than 1600 years. Yet the only concrete societal change we know about them is adopting devil worship and declaring independence from Taldor. Changes that massive should come at least every hundred years. Hell languages usually don't even last that long let alone nations.
Uh...for the first thousand years of that Cheliax was part of Taldor's empire. A province of the Empire. It's only been it's own nation for 700 years or so. And underwent quite a few cultural shifts in that time. They aren't mostly gone into in detail...but that has to do with the game being focused on the modern day of Golarion, not in-depth historical details, not there not being such history.

4081 AR The Chelish king Aspex the Even-Tongued successfully engineers the independence of Cheliax from Taldor. Between that and today there at least 20 events that have happened that have influenced Chelish society. See the Wiki page for details. These events influence the following countries: Taldor, Isgar, Galt, Absalom, Garund, Nidal, Mothune, Varisia, and Andoran. so in 700 years they have influanced 9 countries to one extent or another, not counting wars that don't have locations mentioned on that page. They have an average of 3 social changes every 100 years, that's 3 times your 1 event every 100 years.

Yeah, I kinda think of a sunrod as an underwater flare. They kinda smoke a good amount and stink of sulfer/magnesium/gunpowder/whatever. I don't see this as a problem usually unless there is some mechanic in the dungeon that moves the air around faster than the party is traveling. Most dungeons seem to be a bit lacking in the airflow department so I wouldn't rule that scent-based detection would matter any more than usual unless the party stayed still for a while and filled an area with the smell.

See, I always thought of the sunrod as a glow stick.I figured the when struck was like breaking the glow stick to mix the chemicals

CotCT was good to read as a novel. it had those cinematic cut scenes that I wish they would bring back, for when your brain is tired of running 4 PCs through your head. Also it focused on such a small area, that it described things in better detail than other APs.

So i'll reiterate the importance for me that the set matches the AP it's representing.

When the set for Reign of Winter includes a creature like the Wolliped, it makes me question the set and wonder where the disconnect is.

This set could have had Frost Giants, sprites, mephites, atomies, moss trolls, gremlin, a hydra, a dracolisk, or bayoks just as some examples. But instead you propose a fox, a wolliped, 3 different birds, and a goat. You provide a sculpt for Baba Yaga, which is cool... ** spoiler omitted **

What am I to do with 6-7 goats/foxes/falcons/owls or 4 Wollipeds? :)

And like someone else said, it's all forgivable when there's a large variety, but less so now :)

Remember when you are evaluating this, the random encounter tables and the fact that the scupting was done before they finished the AP. An encounter with crows could have been in book 1 when the sculpts were started, but got axed in development. If you want the minis set to come out within 18 months of the adventure path ending, you need to accept that there will be a disconnect caused by the development process.

My personal opinion (as a cannon person) is that the current books are too crunchy. I could go through the entire inner sea NPC codex for an index on the wiki in under 3 hours. I much preferred the days of 3.5 pathfinder chronicles where a 64 page book would be 55 pages of inspired fluff and 9 pages of crunch mixed in.. at least two of them being new monsters

Prestige classes have prestige in the world. They should be tied to the world. That is the philosophy of prestige classes at paizo. The Archetypes do the same job as the 3.5 prestige classes in a far better way.

Here, I've broken it up for you so you can point to where you think I have it wrong.

Ogre wrote:
"Reaper took people's money with the promise of future delivery of product."

Are you suggesting Reaper didn't take money and promise something in return? Because that is demonstrably false.

The question is more what was promised. If you are still waiting for things to ship, then they did not not promise a shipping date for you. They promised that pledges that included only a vampire level pledge should be shipping at X time in the pledge levels at kickstarter. technically, they never in the entire 53,000 comments said that vampire+addons would have the same estimated shipping as vampire alone. And I'm pretty sure when the first new add-on was announced, they told us that adding add-ons could delay shipping (either in the update or the comments of the update)

I think that if you read the terms of service for kickstarter, technically, your pledge is not for the product, it is for the goal, and the company has chosen to give X product free to those you contribute $Y. It might even say that the rewards are considered free marketing materials and not purchases(that way they don't have to charge taxes, and can charge your credit card more than 90 days before shipping the marketing material, as you are not buying the product, and the shipping time requirement of credit card agreements for retailers do not apply). But I'm not sure on that point.

Like kickstarter said, its not a store, the two best things I can think of to liken it to is;
1) the PBS telecast (but then you only get existing product) and
2) a contribution to a political race (getting a pencil if you contribute $X and a lawn sign if you contribute $Y and a bumper sticker of you contribute $Z; AGAIN the product is made before you pledge)
3)Shark Tank - prolly the best comparison, if a investment they go into fails, they loose lotsa $ and all of the free samples they could get as part owners, if one that we pledge for fails we loose a little cash (comparatively) and free marketing material we would have gotten as a thank you.

I still shake my head - I never saw any delivery estimates on add-ons during the kickstarter, only once the first shipment had come in.. and THAT is what is holding everything up (unless you're in Canada). Yes, Vampire pledges shipped out a few weeks later, but those with just vampire pledges and nothing else have their pledges.

Vampire Level + add-ons was not something with a delivery estimate on the front page of the kickstarter. so they are right on time.... That's just my view

I was willing to give them a month (April) because it was a heck of a deal. But it's May now. I also question halting shipping to have their little Con. It would have been better to delay the Con until the shipments are done. People gave them $3 million. Fulfillment of their promise should be the priority over everything else.

Use some of the money to hire temps as suggested above.

The Con actually didn't hurt them that much, people were able to pick up their vampire pledges, paint sets and figure cases at the con, meaning a lot less orders that needed to be shipped in total.

Also, the original plan was that they would be complete before the con, but the Vampire pledges were held up in customs for 2-4 weeks. last we heard they were fulfilling faster than they anticipated.

By the time the kickstarter was started, the con already had people committed to being there (both attendees and sculptors/painters). These people had paid hundreds of dollars for plane tickets and hotels on top of the con price, and said plane tickets may not be refundable. By the time they knew customs were holding up the largest part of the vast number of pledges, many of those attendees would not have been able to reschedule time off. Are you saying that they should have been out of $hundreds of dollars each because of customs, when the solution they chose doesn't cost anyone anything, except for reaper to get off-site storage while the con went on? They chose to save many customers money, and you're yelling at them for it.

Alright Mattastrophic, I'll bite:

Mattastrophic wrote:


-Government structure. How is the Empire governed? How is it set up? Who are the key players? What are their titles? How much autonomy do the individual provinces have? What about the central government in Oppara? Is there a set of departments/ministries/etc?

From the wiki article on Taldor: Government

Taldor is ruled by the grand prince, a hereditary title. The current Grand Prince Stavian III has only one heir, his daughter, Princess Eutropia. Taldor has a decadent noble class, bloated with titles and obsessed with the arcane arts. Taldor’s bureaucracy is headed by the senatorial class.[10] Much of the government management is left in the hands of the senatorial class, who constantly argue over jurisdiction.[6]

The crown seeks its personal protection from beyond Taldor's political ties and mixed loyalties. The Grand Prince is zealously served by the Ulfen Guard, who care only for their oath and duty to the crown, without any concern for the empire's political climate.[11]

Senator Karthis is the leader of the opposition party in Oppara, supporting the declaration of war against Qadira.[12]

All from Taldor Echos of Glory
Also from the Stavian III page:

In order to further strengthen his empire and to gain loyal supporters, Stavian III also created an incentive program which promised formal titles to anyone willing to claim lands from rogue lords.[4] This ensured that lords regarded as 'unworthy' of their position by the crown could be forcibly removed and replaced by individuals loyal to the Grand Prince.

Source: Decline of Glory

Mattastrophic wrote:
-Religion. I know that Aroden used to be really big in Taldor, but I know nothing of the religion of the Empire, other than that there's an illegal cult of Sarenrae.

My guess is that Taldor was once such a large empire that many religions were brought into the fold from the expansion. You would have to look at individual towns as a seaside town is more likely to worship the duel deity, while more backwater town would have shrines to other gods.

Religions that have been confirmed to have shrines in Taldor:
Abadar, Aroden, Calistria, Cayden Cailean, Norgorber, Shelyn, Sarenrae (as an underground resistance)

Mattastrophic wrote:
-Culture. What do Taldans, rich and poor, enjoy doing? What do they like to eat? What does a Taldan aspire to when he grows up? Do Taldans follow the dogma of a particular religion? Do they define their world by what is told to them or through logic?

Taldor Echos of Glory has two pages on this (11 and 12 paraphrased in the socety section of the taldor wiki article I liked to above). They have even written "Taldorians are decadent bon vivants, favoring rich foods, ornate attire, and jeweled accoutrements for even the most minor of casual affairs. To a Taldorian, appearance is an expression of power, and a keen sense of fashion represents a keen mind. Their appreciation for the arts extends beyond fashion and painting, dabbling in sorcery, dueling, and the murky strategies of politics and war."

Mattastrophic wrote:
-The royalty. I know that Taldor has a Grand Prince who has only one daughter. Is he married? If so, what's his wife's name? Why has he not produced an heir? What would happen if Stavian III were to die? Who would the throne pass to?

It has also been said that he likes to dally in frivolous activities, so not out of the question that his daughter might be born out of wedlock. At least we have a picture of Grand Prince Stavian III...

Mattastrophic wrote:
-The nobility. Who are the prominent families? Which lands do they govern? What are Taldor's noble titles, and how do they rank? What are some of their heraldry?

Royalty

Taldor's royal class is comprised of dynasty-inheriting houses, most of which trace their lineages back to one emperor or another. Its members hold byzantine titles, such as patrician, magister, proconsoul, mandator, exarch, viceroy, duke, and others. A large number of scholars in the Primogen Library keep and update the genealogical records, as each title has a subtle place in the hierarchy of the empire.

Status for both royalty and senate is distinguished by their lavish beards, which by law only they can legally grow (leading to them being called the "bearded"). Greater, more extravagant beards are a sign of a higher status

both from Taldor Echos of glory page 11 and 12

Mattastrophic wrote:
-The merchant and peasant classes. How does Taldor acquire wealth? What are the surplus-producing crops? What about crafted goods?

The Unbearded

The massive underclass of "the unbearded" make up 99% of Taldor's population. They are merchants, craftsmen, day laborers, dock workers, vagabonds, soldiers, sailors, and so on. Taldor's crushing taxes and the policies of the ruling class regarding the rights of citizens keep the unbearded in poverty. Careful advances of key citizens from the ranks of unbearded keep their compatriots ever hopeful that after hard work and long loyalty, they might join the ranks of the bearded. Taldor's military usually offers such a way of advancement, and because of that the Taldan Horse, Phalanx, and Imperial Navy are loyal and strong.

Again from the wiki article I linked to, which lists Taldor Echeos of Glory P 11-12 as its source.

While this doesn't include crops or inports/exports

Another complaint that I've seen here is that Amex "forces" you to credit back the customer in a dispute (aka charge-back). Nothing could be further from the truth. Many times, it's simply because the merchant doesn't clearly spell their refund/return policies. Think about it from a legal perspective, most businesses have policies/signed waivers etc in place to make sure they don't get sued in court. Same concept here.

As the one who brought this up before, I figured I should tell why I brought that up. I worked at a hotel, and multiple times AmEx threatened our hotel that they would terminate thier agreement with us because a cardholder said that they had not stayed with us, We had a scan, meaning that the customer was in front of us and handed us the card. We also had an imprint of the card, proving that they were in front of us, and had handed us the card. We sent Amex copies of these, the signed registration card, and the video of the person signing said piece of paper and handing us the card. Amex said "yes that's them, refund them or you can't accept Amex anymore".

Also 70 cents times 100,000 books is $7000.00 - thats prolly the cost of another piece of art. (Note I do not know what paizo pays for art)

So if 10GP = $3,700 then a masterwork at 306GP is the equivilent of $113,500 so a 2013 Aston Martin or a 2012 Maserati GranTurismo.

A Kyonin sourcebook ala 'Varisia, Birthplace of Legends' would be AWESOME! I would definitely spend money on that. Of course I already am subscribing to the Player Companion line, so FWIW...

queen of thorns is kinda a Kyonin primer..

I don't mean to criticize. I'm just trying to understand this. If you believe that you might need PDFs, say, a month from now, why not wait until THEN to buy them? If you buy them now, why not download them now?

I mean, once you spend your hard-earned money on a PDF, even if you wind up not needing it after all, you could still browse the thing for ideas, or just for the entertainment of reading it, or at the very least, to satisfy your curiosity about what the document says.

The only explanation with which I can come up is that maybe there's some limited-time discount, or sale. But even then, why not download?

I don't use PDFs much, but as a general rule I keep them on paizo.com and download them when I need them. Most of my files have never been downloaded (or downloaded, browsed and then not saved).

I trust paizo to do a better job of backing up and sensible cataloging than me. Plus this way I know ill always have the most recent version.

I bought them in preparation to a later part of Legacy of Fire. It was going to support the changes I was planning to make to 2 specific encounters.

When the group broke down, I decided it was better to read my paizo things that will still help me in playing PFS than 3rd party things for a campaign that may never get off the ground again
