Hmmm ...

Adult Dog Int = 2

Adult Human Int = 10

Adult Gold Dragon Int = 20

So this means dog breeders are evil ?

The way i see it, we have can put alternate realities in consideration. The canon is a bit fragmented right now among multiple intances of Golarion:

Baseline 3.5 Golarion Frozen in time forever in 4709, this is the baseline Golarion from Pathfinder Chronicles Campaing Setting. A lot of non-canon anymore come from it.

Baseline Pathfinder Golarion Also frozen in time in 4711, quantum copies are still generated each day. This is the main canon.

Chronological Adventure Path Golarion This is the theoritical Golarion where each Adventure Path take place in the year they are launched in Real World Earth. It´s not an assumption, but canon theorists consider it. The Iconics that are in art are the ones who got in the adventures and somehow get back to level 1 at their next appearance.

Spoiler:
Karzoug is dead, no other runelords awakened.

Pathfinder Society Golarion Maybe is the same place as chronological adventure path Golarion, maybe not. The Iconics are the Pathfinder Society members, the evil iconics are neutral. All scenarios take place at the launch date.

Spoiler:
Both Karzoug and Krune are dead.

Pathfinder Comics Golarion Golarion where comics continuity take place and the adventure paths could or could not have taken place.

Pathfinder Tales Golarion Also is not clear if takes place in CAP Golarion or Comics Golarion or if all the Tales are in the same universe.

Spoiler:
Varian fought Zutha.

Pathfinder Legends Golarion Is not the same as CAP Golarion because different Iconics are taking the adventure Paths.

Infinite Golarions These are the Golarions each GM have and don´t count as canon, but are the ones we can adventure. A special case is James Jacobs´s Golarion, because many people consider it as proto-canon.

Did i forgot anything ?

It was hard on me, all my girlfriends felt really insecure because there was no true desire in me even if i did love them. I felt broken, because people i care very much were hurt by my lack of desire. I thought that i was homossexual, but i had no desire either for men. So there can be a lot of pain in asexual life too. Some people expect to be desired, and think that you are cheating on them if you don´t want sex. This could be useful for writers for representing asexuals in fiction.

I guess someone not interested in casual sex, but not demissexual , actually feel bad that they don´t have a partner to do sex; while a demissexual doesn´t even remember about sex without being in love with a partner.

Thanks Eliandra. I'll repeat my questions here, safely away from the scary dinosaur... :)

Question: how rare are people with this orientation or lack of desire? (I've never heard of this type of non-visible minority; thus I'm assuming it's a minority)

Question 2: How plausible would it be for asexual people to display themselves as overly sexualized like Seoni? (in a middle-age setting; not a modern setting) Wouldn't that engender a stream of useless attention towards them? Wouldn't such people get really fed up or angry at all the people hitting on them? (I'm guessing everyone would display their asexuality differently, same as straight of gay people have different styles; but I'm wondering about the plausibility of such a thing in a harsh, ancient world where Erastil is a thing...)

(I'm just trying to understand; not judging; I'm mostly trying to see how they would fit within Golarion's population and to a separate extent, vis-a-vis Golarion's faiths, especially those with vested interest in sexuality or gender roles i.e. vs. Erastil, Arshea, Calistria, etc.)

1- I am an asexual. Many people are not aware of us, so few people even bother to identify themselves as asexual. But there are quite a few of us around.

2- There are many ways. The thing is that some asexuals are so removed from sex life that they not see the obvious sexual connotations most other people see (it happens to me a lot). Other asexual just don´t like the sex act, but like to tease and even flirt, having romantic life and feel pretty to others. There is a lot of ways.

3- It´s ok. There a lot of asexual types out there, even among other non-cis, we are questioned a lot about what we feel.

Hmmm ....

Followup questions about Thassilon and Pathfinder Comics:

1-) Were Xanderghul and Aroden rivals for the Azlant´s Throne or they never met ? Did they fight ?

2-) Aroden were aware of the Runelords survival in Thassilon but never had the time to do anything about it or their survival was a really well guarded secret ?

Non-followup questions ahead:

3-) We know that Azlant is under the ocean, but maps show there is some continental sized islands still over there. They are empty ?

4-) Both Xanderghul and the Peacock Spirit uses the peacock symbolism. Was the Peacock Spirit welcome in his realm or seen as a threat ?

Thank you again for your patience, and excuse me if i did bother you anyway.

About the recent Pathfinder Comics in Hollow Mountain:

Comics Spoiler:
Xandergul meet Alaznist on the big EF Day, saying that he just come from Azlant´s Imperor Throne Room and he lost the right to be the new emperor because Aroden took it first.
I know Xandergul words, being master of pride, are not trustable enough, but that´s a lot of plot reveal.

1- Its a politics change to be more open about the end of Thassilon, or this was a once in a lifetime breadcrumb ?

2- It was revealed before that Aroden and the Runelords were aware of each other ?

3- Xandergul said Aroden was a cult hero, he was already in a Mythic Path by then ?

4- Xandergul said Veiled Masters were the defacto rulers of Azlant and they decided to throw the Earthfall after Aroden took the Sword of Rulership. It all happened in just a day ? Earthfall was Aroden fault ?

5- We were allways told the runelords were aware of the end of Thassilon and prepared according. Alaznist seemed a lot clueless about what were happening. Is that so ?

Thank you for all the good work and love you give to it.

I call it TAKE 01. If with a 01 result on a d20 you can't fail, then you only need to roll if you want to try it with difficulty raisers, like jumping over a 10' gap while doing a backflip, blindfolded in the middle of a hurricane.

Yes. God could be lying to his angels. Or them to the elves. Tolkien could just be wrong about the nature of his universe.

Or of course, Paizo could be wrong about the nature of Golarion and its cosmology.

Leaving the specifics of Middle-Earth and Golarion aside, it is at the vary least possible to imagine worlds that are not compatible simply given infinite space.
For example: I imagine a universe without infinite physical space. Done.

Hey, Eru never says there isn´t another god/creator out there. I can imagine a universe with a lot of god creators that can live in community and share space. I never told my Sims that there is others Sims in other people computers just like them, i simple accept that there is no chance of contact and don´t matter with such thoughts.

Not really. I mean you could have something that looked like Middle Earth, but Eru wasn't actually God the Creator, but it wouldn't actually be Middle Earth.

Much like a Golarion wouldn't actually be the same without it's cosmology.

Even infinite space just doesn't do what you want it to do.

Eru could have created Middle-Earth and even the entire universe, we don´t know who created Golarion´s universe. Maybe the gods are just Valar called by a different name. People from Middle-Earth are just misinformed by how much else there is.

Earth is so small and by sheer chance there is so much. The universe is so big, that we can barelly grasp how much.

The universe is so big, that by proability alone, there should be a lot of Golarions and Earths out there. Everything must exist, every possibility we have ever dreamed of is out there waiting to be discovered.

I have some racism in my campaing to help build tension, but i had never let it reach a oppressive level, just mild annoying level.
I am roleplaying a Half-Orc Investigator who was a graduated from Lipstadt university in Ustalav, a country who have been invaded by Orcs very recently. I out in my backstory how much racism he had to face, that no one believed a half-orc could have intelligence to graduate and he still done it. No one raised an eyebrown about he being a half-orc the entire campaing. We meet nobles, faculty members, soldiers and if i had done a human there wouldn´t had been any difference in treatment. This got me a little upset that i cound´t roleplay a major plot point of my character, but i can understand that such detour would take spotlight from others campaing major plots. I like characters who face prejudice and overcome it, it´s not allways about realism, it´s about somethings that we do to heal past scars.

Guards should be paranoid. It comes with the job.

Highly paid guards, yeah. Cheap guards are there only to intimidate robbers. They are bored all the time and their only real job is to appear tough. Of course they are trained to do their job, but they only paranoid if what they are guarding is robbed on a weekly basis.

Some consideration from someone who lives in a culture that believe and uses "magic". At the city i lives, cursing, charming or blessing others is somewhat common. If this could be considered any indication of how things would work in a fantasy society with actual spell casting: non trained people wouldn´t outlaw magic. The benefits of helping magic far outweight harmful magic for believers, is more or less the same as people putting secret data in computers that can be hacked.

People only care if there are spellcasters around, when things start going bad. "I am having so much bad luck, someone must have cursed me". And people don´t look much for "casting" effects, they look for motive and opportunity.

" She was envious of me, she must have hired a witch to curse me."
" This outsider was around when things strange happened. He must be a spellcaster."

The first attitude is not to confront the agressor, people seek a friendly spellcaster and confirm if there was magic involved, and then try to hire him into helping getting back against the enemy spellcaster.

Even if confronted with something obviously "magical", they don´t think much of it if is not affecting them directly (too much magic going around all their life, and allmost everyone could hire some if they want, even not understanding it).

A lot of people accuse each other of "charming" them all the time, so it would be very hard to tell the truth without a spellcaster to confirm it ot not.

People are very weary to "spellcasting" directed at them by people they don´t trust, but they would run away. Touching spellcasters is considered bad luck (and spellcaster could have been hired, so could not be a personal thing and making a enemy of spellcaster IS REALLY BAD LUCK).
Armed guards would attack a hostile spellcaster, but seek coutercurse after, at their boss expenses.
People would try at least a sense motive if someone was casting a unknown magic to determine if it was harmless of harmful even without spellcraft. If they sense hostility they enter flight or fight mode.

People know magic is expensive. Any offer of free magic is considered really suspicious.

Faking casting magic is a skill most people learn. Most people would try casting a spell by themselves at least on time in life (even i already tried it once). People are aware of faking casting, but it could be fake fake casting so no one is taking risks. Even then most people don´t take real classes of "magic" because of the commitment to it (even believing it works, is like leaning computer programming, is too easy to just hire someone to do it for you).

Spellcasters gain too much money to take risks doing crazy things like hobomurdering if not hired to it. There is "multiclass" people, that claim they know some magic tricks and only use for themselves or friends. After a time they start hiding from friends because of the constant asking of favors (just like computer skills).

I guess enchanting is the main school of magic that have a lot of problems with people knowing a spell was cast.

Evocation, Necromancy, and Conjuration generally have overt effects that turn pretty obvious that magic was involved.

Divination, Illusion, Abjuration and Transmutation are more covert, but you seldom need to cast them in the enemy face if you want it secret.

What the FAQ say ?

The FAQ say that somehow, people witnessing the casting of the spell should have chance to roll spellcraft and know whitch spell was cast.
This is a game, we don´t really need to go beyond that.
But, because of different gaming styles, some of us need to theorize beyond that and seek answers beyond the scope of the game. And these answers break the rules.

What these mysterious signs of casting mean ?
What the NPCs would do if they see these signals ?
How can i hide these signals ?

Casting a spell in front of the uninitiated will likely cause one of two things to happen: the uninitiated to run away, or to defend themselves.

In the guard example above, if you are within arm's reach, and cast a cantrip, you're going to get your head chopped off before you can complete it.

It's like pointing a realistic-looking toy gun at a cop in real life; just because the gun was a fake doesn't mean you aren't going to get shot.

I can't help but think suddenly casting any spell in public will make people nervous.

Invisible pixies will have so much fun in life from now on...

What would happen if a tiny invisible caster is on the same square of someone and casts on surprise ? Is possible to know who exactly is casting the spell ?
