They can have fairy courts even with the Eldest. It's not like there will not be fey with CR21-25 level power. The first world is vast in size and very malleable. We also know that there were once more Eldest then we have now and might be more out there we do not know about as well. There are many possibilities in this setting if you use your imagination.

Sometimes less is more.

Chopswil, I don't mean to rain on your parade, but I made a cursory glance and found 3 errors in your errata. Which means that, while your effort is certainly noble and you likely find actual errors in some instances, I don't think you're achieving your goal. Whether it is a fellow gamer or Paizo wishing to use your threads, in the end one needs to check your errata for instances where it, erm, needs errata to itself.

Since you're obviously investing a lot of time and energy into this, I'd suggest re-evaluating your computing tool and/or using Hero Lab which, while not perfect, does a pretty bang up job of calculating things.

I mean, once again, I wish you no bad, but it seems like you're pulling out a Sisyphus here.

As long as US of A (and Canada) is 70-80% of global p'n'p RPG market and something like 90% of "D&D and related" market, it's inches and pounds, baby.

I would pause, consider just how many generations of my children will have to pony up for the damages awarded in the resulting lawsuit, close the laptop, walk away and grab a can of soda from the vending machine, happy how smart I am.

When in doubt (and nobody is going to clear these doubts for you, because WotC does not answer questions on legal matters), steer clear. It's about the best, universal, transcendent, jurisdiction-independent legal advice I can ever give to anyone who can't just bankroll their opponents into oblivion via legal fees.

The OGL applies to GAMING products only. Which puts fiction in a weird situation, because it ain't gaming product. You might notice that Pathfinder Novels don't use proper OGL names such as tiefling, flumph or bag of holding. Proper OGL-covered names are best avoided in a product which isn't a gaming supplement.

After taking a look at Arshea's Celestial Obedience and imagining a prestige class based on it, I think I can see why Arshea was skipped for this book.

I would imagine that Lymnieris was skipped for pretty much the same reason.

Bah, if Wizards of the Coast can come out with the Book of Vile Darkness which discusses awful stuff like torture and live sacrifice then I'm sure Paizo Publishing would be okay with some sort of sexual-based prestige classes. Besides, not all of a prestige class of Arshea needs to be based on sexuality. She's also about tolerance and freedom. :D

You deeply underestimate the dramatic difference in how Americans perceive violence and gore vs. how they look at sexuality and nudity.

Hey James,

I don't really have a question. I just wanted to thank you for everything you do and for this thread in particular. Whenever I visit Paizo forums, I always read it as I consider it one of the most valuable insights.

I don't think that the problem is that James is miserable. I think the problem is that his thread is occasionally visited by people who lack tact, empathy, command of English language, social interaction skills or a combination of above. And honestly, any appeals or calls should be directed at such people first. James is going above and beyond in letting people pick his brain, which means he takes in the good with the bad, and I honestly find the opportunity so amazingly cool that even if his answer is "No. Not revealed. Meh. Not a fan." I am insanely grateful for him taking his time to let me know the inner workings of one of the people behind the setting and the game.

And yes, cats > puppies.

Get a lawyer. I mean, an actual one, not some weird hack who fights flamewars on Internet boards while disguised as a bag of devouring. Doesn't need to be Matt Murdock Foggy Nelson, but needs a basic grasp of IP law and licensing agreements such as the OGL. Check with him/her what open content, product identity are. Make sure you are aware that Paizo and WotC are domiciled in the US of A and the legal implications of that fact. And don't put any female nipples on the cover or there will be consequences.

I'm a little sad that Ragathiel's Paladin code isn't just a wall of "killburnmaimkillburnmaim", but apart from that this looks like a fantastic book, despite my generally miffed attitude to all things Good.

If your heard about one then you must have heard of the other, since they are "brethren" and come from the same book series by the same author.

Don't know. I like the new version better though-you shouldn't be able to use the options without actually following the deity. I was surprised that you could.

Why? It makes perfect sense that an individual could study a technique without accepting all of the themes attached to it. How would this be any different from say a Taldan person from Taldor studying a Tien fighting style or even an Osirini one?

It's not an option that adds flavor or fun, but one that instead strips it.

Because allowing a follower of Lamashtu to use sacred techniques of Iomedae is silly. Just as having an Amurican swordsman rock a katana is less silly than having a Catholic Priest exercise yoga in the middle of the mass.

It is.

Desna's Shooting star has you add CHA to attack and damage INSTEAD of any other ability bonus.

And it only costs Bards one Versatile Performance! Well, CG bards anyway.
There are player character Bards that aren't Chaotic Good?

That gives me the idea of an omnicidial LG Bard of Ragathiel...

What do your lawyer senses read, Toothy Bag?

I'll tell you in a moment, checking the HTML code of the contest page for hidden clauses, like any self-respecting lawyer would do.

Pathfinder bestiaries are always fantastically illustrated, feature sound and consistent CR, great spread of types, themes and inspirations, frequently showcase outstanding design (whoever designed the Wyrmwraith in B5 - much love!) AND have dinosaurs in every book. What's not to love?

Most Romani and related groups find the term insulting. You can argue to your heart's content that "gypsy" invokes colourful wagons full of fun-loving people, but over here, it invokes stereotypes of "unwashed car thieves who refuse to integrate with our glorious Slavic societies and chose to live in ghettos full of grime and crime". And it gets worse in Slovakia and Hungary, trust me.

Cheers. I guess I've just missed that subtext in my readings of the word (although I'm going to plead geographical isolation as my defence).

FWIW, I wasn't intending to "argue" the meaning - it's just I've never heard all those negative connotations. (If anything I would have labelled the gypsy stereotype as a bit fanciful and romantic in the too-good-to-be-true vein). I'm happy to concede I was wrong though.

Oh, one could write a PhD or two about how wildly different is the perception of Roma in the West and in the East.

To be honest and clear, a lot of the positive stereotype has solid grounds in reality - the Roma have a fascinating culture and contributed a lot to cultures of nations where they are present.

However, the word "gypsy" has been used in European (British, Irish) English as a slur against not only Roma, but also several less-known nomadic peoples, such as the Irish Travellers. Pretty much the same happened to cognates of the greek tziganoi such as the German Zigeuner or Polish cygan.

Only the French managed to partially dodge the bullet by calling Roma Bohémiens and later developing the whole bohemian topos of wine, absinthe, dance, poverty, brothels, Moulin Rouge and Nicole Kidman kissing Ewan McGregor. So it's still kind of more about sultry girls dancing alluringly among colourful wagons.
