Have you read the novel the redemption engine? About half of it takes place in Kaer Maga and adds a ton of details

Without reading too far into it parts of Sargava and the underground Caverns feature terrain similar to the press pics of Primeval Thule. I would say the 'land of the lost' like underground caverns would be the best bet, as they havn't been fleshed out as much. Sargava has a player's companion and a novel set there.

The demigods part mentioned in their homepage makes me a little leary, as Golarion has a very specific cosmology and ladder of Devine beings....

The newest tales novel sly knives is set in a taldan town on the outskirts and hits on several of the themes alluded to here: thieves guilds, nobles, feelings towards other nations, and we see a church of abadar. Also it's one of the better books in the line.

Worship. Of Sarenrae was originally written to be outlawed in Taldor, this has been ignored in later books almost retconnned by omission, but several PFS scenarios have that as a premise, so they couldn't completely retcon it.

humor ahead RE goblins:
goblins are hated by every other race, and exiled to a desert planet where most of them die of dehydration. a small number find that if they dress in brown robes, and become a bit less chaotic, the suns doesn't dry them out as quickly. These 'scavenge' a large, rhomboid shaped transport from some humans the stab/shoot/stab again and continue scavenging from the unforgiving desert, collecting spare parts, droids, and scrap metal. They continue this until a column of warriors dressed in white massacre them for some of the goods that they had already sold to moisture farmer

Adventure Paths were not able to be used for credit until about season 5 or 6 of PFS. Because of this, they are playing catch-up. Some APs will most likely never get sheets (Wraith of the Righteous for that same reason you mentioned). Chronicles for APs take a long time to make:

1) Read the whole AP, figure out which part will be playable.
2)List out the loot
3)figure out if all of the loot should be availible, and/or partially charged on the sheet
4) assign the value of the loot for the chronicle sheet
5)figure out the Gold for the sheet
6)figure out if there is a boon that should be provided and write that up.
7)send it to editing to be reviewed.

Since the PFS team is so small, chronicles for the APs/modules are less important than getting the monthly scenarios out on time, or prize support for Cons out. The same is true for the editing/layout where furute products that cost money take preference. So normally John (and Linda now) gets time to sit down and do a few just after Gencon. We usually don't see these until December. I believe that they were working backwards... but with the Curse of the Crimson Throne hardcover coming out, That may be getting preference.

Also as this is done by the PFS team, I have flagged this to be moved to the PFS forum

... and, speaking of, "heresies" or "legends" or something: that is, redacted or defunct information (retcons from older material). While those retcons are no longer true, it would be helpful if any apparent contradictions are noted somewhere, so that the wiki does not appear incomplete, and the retcon is easily referenced and known, so those trying to keep up with canon don't slip something in that is contradicted by later material. Even if you don't want it cluttering up the specific article page, you could add a link to a "ancient falsehoods" page or something, and just have a compiled list of "NOPE" organized by area or person (ex: "lies about Tar-Baphon" or "false/slanderous histories about Taldor" or something).

While only a little bit of what you are asking here, I feel this is a good spot to highlight our Canon Conflicts category any time we find conflicting information on a subject the conflict icon (the little assci cross) is added to the page, this category is added, and a link to a meta [pagename]/conflicts page is set up describing both points of the conflict and why one was chosen over the other in the wiki article.

That is basically saying "Gods are above what humans can do because they are above what humans can do", which is a cop out answer.

>"confrontation between beings of near-infinite power could destroy entire worlds and still end in a draw"

So, if I understand you correctly, someone has to be able to destroy the world while fighting their equal to be classified as divine? Well, I admit PCs can't do that. At worst they can decimate tens of square miles of the surface. However, please then explain why no gods "dare to oppose Mantis God openly":

wiki wrote:
The Mantis God has an uneasy relationship with most of Golarion's deities, as they do not approve of his heavy-handed purpose and methods. None dare to oppose him however, at least not openly.

the death of Aroden and the snake God have proved that Gods can die, therefore a God would prefer to fight another God straight out and not be assassinated by the God of assassins.

Also, Achaekek's wiki page doesn't list a CR in his template box, or in the categories. That was removed when the stat block was retconed at the same time this line was retconned "he isn't a true deity but an entity created by the Gods."

Because of Paizo's policy of "we only errata when we reprint", many of the changes appear rushed, more for the purpose of ensuring that the rules are not abused than resulting in a balanced fix.

It doesn't feel rushed at all, it means the developers have a set amount of time to discuss and tinker with issues that the playerbase brings up. Crane style took almost 18 months to be changed, and developers were talking to the playerbase on these boards for over 6 months prior to the reprinting.

Mekkis wrote:


What we need is a revision of way the errata is issued. It should be decoupled from the release of new books, making it more easily modified and giving a better chance for it to be applied to less popular products. When a new printing of a book is needed, it can be applied and typeset.

That's exactly what happened in the case of Ult Eqipment. a good number of the Errata issued were previously clarified to work this way as FaQs (in fact almost all of the Ult Equipment FaQs were/are able to be removed now)

the hardest part of this is that alignment is all based on point of view. Were they evil and turned good.. or are they just neutral? There are only a few example that are cut and dry:

There are some examples in Wraith of the Righteous. with the redemption rules....

and the biggest one I can think of:

Arathuziel the Chained from the novel The Redemption Engine (page 255 area) He's literally a Devil who's alignment changed, and he turned into an angel.

Guys, he's asking for what part of Golarion, not what premade adventure.... I agree, for the "plain old fantasy experience" either the river kingdoms or Varisia are best. Varisia is more fleshed out, with both Sandpoint and Falcon's Hollow being detailed enough you could have multiple sessions exploring the town and not see everything.

This was on the page 11 March 2008 when we transferred the databases, meaning I'm not able to locate whom added this information, but it was prior to this date, so from a very early book. Mark Moreland might know, as he was a heavy wiki editor during this time. (hoping mentioning his name will summon him...)

Oh I found it: A lot of the early information was taken from a Mike McArtor messageboard post from July 3, 2007. This was when he was a higher level editor, but is at the lowest level of canon, as it has not been in a published book yet.

Part of the issue is the way print matter works. When the first volume goes to the printers, they may be still working on the 3rd 4th 5 th and 6th books of the AP. ( I believe the print deadline for the early August books is May, so I'm guessing 2-3 months average) this means that if they were to wait for a gm book yo be written they would either have to wait for the last manuscript to come in to get the level of detail you are asking for, meaning it would come out at least 6 months after the last book, or write it in house.. And many paizo staffers are already doing 60 hours weeks at least nice a month

I would allow it, but as the above people said it will give you basically the same bonus a +2 would give anyone else...

Looking at the Item creation rules Ability bonus (enhancement) = Bonus squared × 1,000 gp. Therefore I'd have to price it higher than the (1 squared)*1000=1000. I'd most likely go with (1.5 squared)*1000=2250. This represents the fact that it is half of the 4,000 for a +2, but more than half as powerful in game. I thought about using 1.75 instead of 1.5, but wanted to make sure it wasn't a no-brainier to put the level 4 +1 in that same stat and bump it to a +2 item. I would also limit these to 1 per character (liftime, so if you bump it to a +2, you still can't use another one).

The issue is these aren't just "gnome druid" it's "Lini". This is a specific character in the world, with her own history, and actively taking actions (see the Pathfinder comics by Dynamite entertainment). They don't have art for the miniature sculptors to go off of for these characters gender swapped. I guess I'm not seeing how a male 'cutpurse' and a 'male version of Merisal' differ enough to be useful.

I also believe that the iconics are 50% female be design, so that the maximum number of people can see heroes that 'look like them'.

That said, I've yet to see a single legal PC that can make a scenario a cakewalk.

We have a sword and board fighter played by an 8 year old at the time, who has been inspected by 2 different campaign coordinators due to GMs complaining that they couldn't hit him even with a 19 on the die when he was level 4 playing tier 6-7 in 1-7 scenarios. he would great cleave through 9bad guys per round in scenarios that "sheer numbers should push the party to hide or fight from a different location", breaking the narrative. It wasn't disruptive in this case, the rest of us just got to enjoy other facets of our characters, and chose to bring different spell lists and gear when adventuring with him.

The only scenario I hit him more than once was a bad guy with multiple touch attacks that could all go off one round

I'm pleased that you like the design of the Star Knife. As far as I'm aware, there isn't a real-world historical counterpart to this weapon. (I'm not sure who created the RPG concept) I surmise that a starknife would have to be held in a diagonal plane, with the flat of the blades facing towards an opponent. I'd guess it'd be used in a side to side motion rather than a forward stabbing motion. Otherwise the wielder would increase the risk of cutting themselves. Probably great for disarming an opponent though.

The closest I've seen is a "shuriken" that's actually made to maim (shuriken were mainly used for distraction - more of a feint in PFRPG) which was about 8 inches long per side. Because this weapon was also about 10 pounds of metal, it was thrown underhand, aiming for the knee or groin.

To anyone who has used throwing stars - it hit the same way, but was purposefully made heavier in the middle, so it dropped/fell out of the target after striking them. Hopefully giving the thrower first blood.

It looked like this but just about twice as big and made of metal.

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.

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
