Ok, folks. I think the constructive feedback phase of this thread has come to a close, especially as the Paizo staff will not be around this weekend to deal with any aftershocks or late flare-ups.
Should you want to continue to discuss issues like this in a cordial, constructive manner, feel free to open another thread in which to do so.
This one has served its purpose, and then some.
Have a good weekend, everybody.
Go play some games. :)
The cloaker isn't too far out for me, they are meant to cloak a medium and I'm ok with the size. Then again I was happy with the leucrotta. I am conncerned about the size of the cave giant, they are low CR Giants but this one appears to be quite small, he stand about the same height as barzillai thrune!
The Cave Giant is heavily bent over, almost crouching.

I'd say these are pretty high on my list. I have NO insight into what "that other line" does (obviously, or there would probably be less crossover), but I'd say they might want to do them, too. They could even have their full, proper name, which an old Greyhawk nerd who used to live in my body would really appreciate.
Anyway, good suggestion!
Hey, man! No problem! It's totally OK with me if you don't like a mini, or even a bunch of minis. It's impossible to please everyone every time. I just try to do the best I can satisfying as many people as I can, and every so often I toss in a random "just for me" choice as a bit of a personal reward and because, while not everyone will like it, I figure it'll spike intense like in other folks like me, which works for me, too.
If you have ideas for other dungeon dressing that you think better fits the Deadly Foes theme, by all means please let me know what it is. I find this type of piece the most difficult to select, and am happy to receive as many suggestions as possible.
From the weird rarity to the need to make them as high-utility as possible (especially because some folks don't seem to use them _at all_), there's a lot of pressure to "get it right."
So, by all means, help a brother out! :)
Okay, so, Pathfinder Worldscape Issue #1 will have Red Sonja's stats but will Issue #1 also have a full description for the Sword-Devil archetype? Or will that be in another issue?
Issue #1 is Red Sonja's stats and the sword-devil archetype.
Issue #2 is Tars Tarkas's stats and the warlord archetype.
Everything else is still TBD.
I will have to check on the PDF issue, guys. Electronic rights for the comics are totally controlled by Dynamite.
The map for the first issue will be a jungle clearing with creepy "summoning pillars" inscribed with the symbol of Nex. All of the iconics appear in the Worldscape near such monoliths, so expect to see a lot of them on the mini-maps in this series. :)
That's a semi-obscure Frank Frazetta character called Pha, the queen of a lost empire in the African jungle (technically in a time-locked Dawn Land filled with dinosaurs and cave men that just happens to be in an African valley).
She's essentially the girlfriend of Frazetta's Jungle Hero Thun'da (himself very much in a Tarzan tradition).
I kind of love her, so she's a fairly major minor character in Pathfinder Worldscape, appearing in issues 1, 4, 5, and 6.
I've been trying to convince WizKids to do a campsite for years.
And they are finally doing one, only for that "other" brand. Victory, I guess? ;)
Anyway, all that means is that we had to try even harder to make the next set's dressing-heavy case incentive even more impressive! :)
But I'm getting ahead of myself, as usual. :)
Loving this set. Have y'all ever considered creating lamassu or shedu miniatures? I don't know why but I've been feeling the need to create an adventure featuring one of these for my homebrew game.
I haven't yet seriously considered either of those, but will add them to the list of stuff to take a closer look at.
Yesterday I spent the _entire day_ in Paizo's conference room in budget meetings, scheduling meetings, and job interviews for someone else's department.
Not exactly the stuff dreams are made of.
That said, today I had a ton of fun creative meetings, not least of which being a 2-hour playtest of the phenomenal Starfinder starship battle rules, so yeah, some days I definitely have a dream job.

I felt like that was a cop-out in this case. I can get away with giving Sonja bracers because she wears armbands, which is close enough. She doesn't wear invisible plate mail, so far as I've noticed. A lot of the rules I make for myself in how I go about this are, frankly, arbitrary, but trying to keep it close to the stuff the character actually has is a necessity for me.
There was an earlier draft of decorative armor that specifically said it didn't count as wearing armor. After that failed, I made one of her archetype powers work so long as you didn't have an armor bonus (which decorative armor didn't provide), but the whole thing turned into a rabbit hole and I ended up going with a much simpler solution.
The haramaki definitely came up often in our discussion.
I hear everyone on drow.
It may very well be time. Mike and I will crack the seal on the Ebon Archive and see what comes crawling out.
Qlippoth are an interesting thought. I'd love to sneak one or two of them in there, especially since I was the one who brought the whole concept into third edition with Armies of the Abyss.
Agreed on the lack of a lot of good secondary PC race choices. We'll comb the archives for undines, ifrits, oreads, and sylphs especially. Do feel free to post specific image suggestions in this thread, if you've got any.
Kitsune fans are going to BLAST OFF into the stratosphere when they see the cover to Blood of the Beast. Holy hell, that thing is a furry's paradise. God help us all.
I think ratfolk are very strong candidates. Lots of good art for them poking around here and there. Ditto tengu. Both of these races seem to be particularly popular, which is cool.
A Cthulhu-esque monster or two is always welcome. Maybe there's something juicy from the first few volumes of Strange Aeons. Hmmmm.
Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! Keep 'em coming!
We're still working on it, but it turned out to be significantly more awesome and complex than we originally counted on, so we've shuffled the schedule around a little bit.
The book is currently in development, but we haven't slotted it onto the schedule officially yet.
There are still several high-profile Pathfinder projects for 2017 that have yet to be announced.
