Remember at this point Kaer Maga has gotten a lot of pages:

Spoiler:
*City of Strangers, (64 pages)
*An AP fiction in the Eando Kilne story (1 section)
*An Ap adventure in the Shattered star AP (AP #63), and another one that touches it (in the crimson throne AP)
*At least two PFS scenarios set there (City of strangers series)
*2 Novels with a good amount of the book set there (Redemption Engine and Lord of Runes)
*smaller write ups in the Varisia book and the hardcover campaign setting books

So there is a good amount of information there.

If you're looking for a more in depth than this, have you read all of the information? Are you looking for this all in one spot? If so, I suggest that you head over to The wiki. If you see official information that isn't there on the city; The project is open, add it. Then you'll have all of the information in one place like you ask for.

It is. Both APs take place during the same general rebellion in Cheliax, but they do not deal with the same location. Hell's Rebels is all about the city of Kintargo. Hell's Vengeance doesn't go there at all.

Nothing from 3.5 is canonical unless it's referenced by Pathfinder-era material. Elves of Golarion is... subject to modifications, anything that violates present canon like Guardians of Dragonfall, is not.

More the other way around. 90+% of the 3.5 material is canonical unless invalidated by a more recent source. even then the 3.5 material may be correct and the new source wrong.

Guardians of Dragonfall had an issue of being released 5 months before the Gazetteer for Golarion was even printed. So how many things worked in Golarion wasn't set in stone yet. Most of the things that were 'retconned out' are from this time. The really interesting thing is that Dragonfall is one of the few things that actually got actively taken off the map. most retcons in Golarion just do not get mentioned again. There are very few things that are 'erased' most are 'forgotton'

see a similar thread to this one from 2013 where James explains the creative team's views on the subject of retcons, or This thread specifically on Dragonfall.

other Retcons I can think of:
*Queen Abrogail II of Cheliax being a 'Child Queen'
*Existence of Paladins of Asmodeus
*Some of Dragons of Golarion (same reason as dragonfall)
*Existance of the Darklight Sisterhood
* a Ghostbusters easter egg that snuck by the editors.
*Achekek's stat block (I think)
*The Ban on worship of Sarenrae in Taldor
* some of Erastil's more sexist teachings
*How old guns in Golarion are
*Humor dragons based on the 4 temperaments from pathfinder AP #4
*Slight edits to the calender to make months more closely mirror our own
*Seeker of Secrets had quite a few clerical errors on locations of people, and dates that needed to be corrected.
*I think the big cannons captured by the Gorilla King have been removed to fit Golarion's Firearms level.

That's the end of my 1 hour editing window... so I'm goin to stop looking for more examples

This is 2015. I think venues without wifi or a reliable cell signal represent a corner case, at best. And even if we're going to include those in the discussion, the rule could still be that you need to present the source material only in the event that you don't have access to the pfsrd.

Conventions: the 6 conventions we support, only 1 has free wifi, the others have no or spotty cell reception, and wifi costs $15 per day.

Game stores: We play PFS at 5 game stores in the state. 2 of them have free wifi. The other 4 games stores in the state who were not interested PFS only 1 had wifi. So about 30% of game stores I have visited in this state (CT) have it available to customers. Of course this is also one of the 3 states with the highest price per square foot in retail space cost, and the state in the process of raising the minimum wage to the highest in the country, so small businesses are feeling the financial stress. Many of the game stores are in basements of buildings, and have no cell reception. I'd say 50% you can't get wifi or 3G (or higher) cell service.

So not so much a corner case as you might think. If you are a first time player at one of these stores or conventions, and you think as you seem to that they'll have free wifi, so you don't bring resources with you.... that means at least one game day or day of the convention you will be stuck running games with pregenerated characters. It also punishes those without smart phones and/or tablets. Its better to treat all players the same at all locations, meaning everyone has to bring a source.

Erick Wilson wrote:
I still think Walter's idea about a more comprehensive and vigilantly updated official Paizo SRD that PFS players could access via a subscription fee is probably the best one though.

But they don't do subscriptions that don't include physical product, and what you are asking for is already handled by the subscription PDFs. The subscription you are talking about would lower the number of subscribers to the book lines, which would mean they would have to print less books, which raises the cost of printing each book, which increases the cost of the books to the consumer, which would lower the number of subscribers to the book lines, which would mean they would have to print less books, which raises the cost of printing each book, which increases the cost of the books to the consumer, which would lower the number of subscribers to the book lines, which would mean they would have to print less books, which raises the cost of printing each book, which increases the cost of the books to the consumer...... until Paizo is no more. The PRD is all of the RPG line books for free, because that's as much as they can do without having their business model thrown on its head. (Note: they have made a few exceptions such as the technology guide)

Also I'm not sure what you mean by "vigilantly updated" the PRD is updated the same day that errata comes out. When a new book comes out, it takes some time to get it added, but that also helps with books sales, if you want to start playing with the newest and greatest, you by the book or PDF on street date.

I have my religious characters use their god's title when addressing members who are not a part of their faith, and they in turn use the titles as well if they know them. I imagine it to be a little bit like the god stating "Only my friends get to call me Shelyn."

Another way of thinking of it is how medieval subjects would refer to their lord by title, rather than by name, but the lord's closest friends and servants (and they could get quite close) would be able to refer to them by name comfortably.

I do something similar. Other than a few of the major gods, most of my (PFS) players don't know the title right away. So I've found that both written NPC and myself will refer to both name and title the first time, and then use title for the rest of the conversation.

I mean look at Desna(link to wiki page), she has a ton of titles:

The Song of the Spheres
The Great Dreamer
Starsong
The Tender of Dreams
Lady Luck
Resplendent Goddess of Fortune
Goddess of the North Star
Queen of the North Star
Mother Moon

Would a PC know all of these? A cleric of Desna? yes. Other Clerics? Most likely with an knowledge check. Lay people? No way. Therefore whichever title a NPR is going to use should be prefaced the first time used; "Desna, Lady Luck"

depends on what you're looking for The Pathfinder Society Primer is an introduction to the in world pathfinder society. It is still in print.

If you're asking about Organized play, the Guide to organized play has all of the rules. This changes 1-2 times a year, so is only availible in PDF form.

If you are asking about information about Golarion in general, I'd suggest looking up whichever topic you are interested in on the Pathfinder Wiki and look to the reference section, that will give you the books used to build that particular page.

While not as many people play PFS, I would love some sets that are based on upcoming season. For example, I have absolutely zero robots or other creatures common to this season in my mini collection.

These can easily be found in the star wars mini lines, and are very polarizing to the "don't get sci-fi in my fantasy" people.

I'm flagging this is in the wrong forum because it is a rule question and not a PFS question hopefully you can get a response by peoples FAQ it and use that for your PFS needs.

Personally I would allow it for anything 99 gold or less if the spell itself has material components listed and 100 gold if the spell itself does not have material components listed because otherwise you would go over your hundred gold limit for false focus

The big issue with this is balance - if your dragon is optimized, then when your party kills him, they have the loot of an optimized dragon. An optimized bad guy can screw up a party's wealth by level for two to three levels. If you look at paizo adventures from the past two years there are multiple dragons with items that they use magic items

shattered star and PFS spoiler:
I believe the blue dragon in shattered star has some magic jewelry and the beheir in destiny of the sands PFS series uses a crown of swords as a a bracelet.
as you can see they can use magic, but are limited by the wealth levels... consumables are a good thing for bad guys as they don't help the PCs.

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

Magic shop discounts, full-on Victorian outfits, pith helmets, & clockwork “bugs”?!?
...

So why is a former colony more advanced than its parent nation (Sargava vs. Cheliax)? Sure a pith hat is an article of clothing but the only reason for including it is b/c pulp-era movies had British soldiers wearing Pith helmets. Are we that lazy as gamers that we can’t imagine adventuring in an African analogue without having to see items & imagery more consistent with a Tarzan movie?

Well the Pith helmets have been in the settign since the first Campaign setting hardcover (see this blog post with the art) in 2008, so its not a repetitively new phenomenon that this is in the setting. I have not read my Magical Marketplaces book yet, preferring to read hard copies to PDFs, but glancing at the item, its one magical item in a shop.. If you didn't have the Pith helmets there before this book, even though it was in the art of the area for years, there's nothing forcing you to use it now.

It was mentioned by James that the picture I linked to made Pith helmets look too commonplace, I guess a way to not have it be so common is to make it magic only, and more expensive than many in world people get in their lifetimes...

  • Maybe he cheated somehow and found a way to influence what tests show up internally?
  • Maybe the alcohol just made him courageous enough to try and succeed things no normal man would.

    If you want to make yours... artisans of items, well... good luck with that. Isn't it a bit unheroic though?

    Nope, its realistic, kinda like how this thread was asking for the breastplate to be more realistic. Most rangers/guides would also be making things out of the berries and roots they found in the wilderness while wandering/hunting. If you got poisioned by a bite, you better have a poultice made and ready to absorb the venom.... things like that

    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.
