I am the currently Venture Captain of Brazil, but i do live in Salvador Bahia. We have an active GM in São Paulo who make Society games at the RPGArautos monthly meetings, and before it closed, support from the Devir owned store Terramédia. Now i am planning to travel to São Paulo to sort things out as soon as possible but i am looking for someone who can be the São Paulo´s Venture Captain.
Eu sou o atual Capitão de Ventura do Brasil, mas eu moro em Salvador Bahia. Nós temos um GM ativo em São Paulo fazendo jogos da Sociedade nos encontros mensais da RPGArautos, e antes que fechasse, suporta da loja pertecente a Devir a Terramédia. Agora eu estou planejando viajar para São Paulo para ajeitar as coisas tão logo seja possivel, mas de qualquer modo estou procurando alguém para ser o capitão de ventura de São Paulo.
The new classes names in Brazilian Portuguese:
Arcanist - Arcanista

Actuallty, at least in the portuguese language, the name THAUMATURGIST, means blood mage don't is ? I would guess thaumaturgist evokes a more schoolary atmosphere that bloodrager, but at least it's a pretty estabilished name.
Why Crusader wasn't a good name for Warpriest ? (It's already in the game tradition from 2E).
I liked all the other names very much, congratulations.
I am very worried about the new box. The Brazilian law effectivelly tax the size of the box, so bigger boxes have higher taxes. And the worst is that they re-tax everything if we pay the "size tax" so as it would came with all the gen con products launch, i would pay too much. I prefer if i could buy the bigger box separete from the subscription (the separete shipping actually cost lower then the retaxing of products sent together with bigger boxes).
Lets be a bit more produtive.
We all know that when the black dragon power was written, there was no alchemist to balance the power to. Of course Paizo oficial word would be great, but we all are capable GMs.
- No dragon aura/power has such class denial capability
I vote for no or limited* interaction of the black dragon's Corrupt Water power with alchemists class abilities.
*Limited meaning some temporary debuff.
Maybe some alchemist material are made from powders (Blackpowder, Coke, Fairie Dust, Suggar) and that not weak against such attack. I guess that i would make an alchemist have 50% fail in his class abilities until he could access fresh water and rejuvenate his stocks.
Let's then build a kickstart to buy the entire stock of the Second Darkness so there is more chance of a collection edition. Remember that a kickstart its not only about the money, but it also shows how much the fans care about something.
My druid use Produce Flame so often that he calls it his main attack. But i don't use it the round i cast, i treat casting more like he would be drawing a weapon (often i walk around with it casted anyway because of the illumination effect). If it could attack in the casting round, it would be great.
It really depend on the group and even the culture of the players, players already know a lot about fighting BBEG at their bedroom in a isolated side of the room. And then fail to fight a regular foot soldier in a encounter in a corridor.
I ll check about that, thanks. Speaking of Arcadia, as a Brazilian, i would love to see more from the culture from South America (aside from Incas). We had the Gaucho kit from the Red Steel setting and that was it.
More often than not, the native american culture only reach the amazon basin and stops there. The culture from the rest of south america is often forgotten.
We see very little from things like:
I already asked James Jacobs about that but i think i want to hear others opnions about the subject. What do you think about the lack of african looking divine beings like the Orishas from the Yoruba pantheon in Golarion ? I know that the Mwangi still haven't been completely explored, but at least some empyreal lords could appear in the future for them ? You have heard about the Yoruba before ?
These are some photografic work about the African Gods
There is still time for the creation of new Garundi gods or Empyreal Lords in northern Garundi that actually are naturally Mwangi culturally ? Or this ship has sail after Serpent Skull already been publushed and only, maybe, when sothern garundi is ever explored we have chance for this ? Or even then is too late ?
A Chestipede ?
At the very least could be a Awakenned Sorcerer Camel with a draconic bloodline.
Another problem is that Rise of the Runelords was the first and the art wasn't as good as we grew to expect from Paizo, so a new edition with big revamped art was surprising and desired. By the time Curse of the Crimson Throne was lauched, the Adventure Path issues already had better art and side books.
1- If the revisited Korvosa, the elf-drow war, or Katapesh. So new art/product awareness would be easier.
As for southern Arcadia. the Tupi, Guarani, and others are barelly know up north, so i have low hope of some equivalent. As far i know, the native brazilians had a unique culture, with different gods and religions.
The 80s cartoon was a great hit in Brazil, everyone loved the cartoon and he rerun from time to time still of today. Unfortunatly he was called Dragon's Cave (Caverna do Dragão) here and very feel people know that is based in D&D.
I really can't understand why there aren't more shows about fantasy adventures (even cartoons), the japonese do a lot more about european fantasy tha USA. Do people fear D&D that much ?
I ran the scenario last sunday and it went in a very mysoginisc way. Somehow the players commented that Thalia was 30 or something and still single, and considered giving her do Korianna not because of the promise of helping PS, but because she assured them that the Andares daughter would be married to a rich man of a far away land. Thalia was deeply offended.
Celestials can fall, fiends can raise. But do you think there can can be interesting stories about freed angels (angels that became chaotic), or pleading demons (demons who became lawful) ?

My bad, I was thinking this was about the other individual. It was also very clear that the Decem. was doing a lot of talk and not changing a thing, and as far as I recall the first individual was not going to die, just be punished. Have a lot of in-character hatred for said individual, but outside of that, I thought the entire thing was terribly forced and completely illogical :)
I thought that Ambros Valsin was in fact enamoreted by her and just called the mission to rescue her with personal intentions. We never discovered if the portrait thing hasn't any truth under the earth.
Hello again Mister James Jacobs. Thank you again for all the wonderful job.
Why there is so few African Mythology/Divinity in Golarion ? There is so few black divine beings or symbology. I don't know how african mythological religions (as the Orishas) are seen in north america, but it a so rich and fierce legends and perfect for empyreal lords and other things. I know that you already has ethnic Mwangi in positions of power (Jatembe, Seelah, etc..) and you lost the oportunity for that in Serpent Skull, but if you ever has a chance of revisiting the so much forgotten african mythology again, please try again, even superficial research has so much that could add to a fantasy world and peharps easy the preconceptions about them.
Don't forget all plants, animals, chemicals elements that Golarion shares with Earth. Now i am curious about how the designers would pull it off, maybe they just add 96 pages full of strange symbols, because such path coundn't be written in any language spoken on earth.

I had an idea how i planned to use the old faction missions for players that miss them. I wouldl still give the missions as usual, but the players have auto-sucess in any skill check to complete their mission. It was so, so we could focus on the secondary mission without losing the faction flavor (as players gain nothing doing them anyway). But as some secondary mission relate to some old faction missions, its better to still do them the old way.
After reading The Stolen Heir (Pathfinder Society Adventure from 5th season), i really really want an Adventure Path about Andoran and Galt, a political thriller with one adventure written by David N Ross. I really liked the concepts written by him.
I don't hit the faq because i am pretty sure Breath of Life is called Cure Deadly Wounds, and in my games (even Pathfinder Society) it's just a healing spell that could heal hp damage that causes death and if hit point total goes above death threshold before the times up, it can restore life. Any other form of death beyond hp damage is beyond the spell purpose.
I was thinking if making the characters gain a Mythic tier in place of the mantle of the black rider at the start of Reign of Winter would change things too much. What do you think about the subject ?
Ok, my list of wanted APs without the need of new rules/settings:
- The Molthune-Nirmathas War
APs that need new rules/settings:
- Mind over Vuldra !!
Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: The Skinsaw Murders Adventure Deck (Rise of the Runelords Adventure Deck 2)
I am from Brazil. We are a really confusing melting pot of cultures from all around the world, as we love the new, exotic and strange. The real medieval Europe is as distant and exotic to us as is middle-earth (more or less like people don´t know the history of the southern hemisphere countries before they were "discovered" and just make things up).
The point is, each of us have different experiences and comprehension about things and think that is hard to merge that with canon. But that is it, the magic about RPGs is that each personal campaign is unique, each GM has his own set of perceptions and ideas that none other can make. Settings like Golarion are like sparks that burn in your mind, and only the resulting fire matter.
