Been waiting to hear this was going to happen!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

And the deal is inked so we are getting it.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

Isn't it usually right before or after Thanksgiving?

I am with the brain eater on this one. If it doesn't relate to gaming politics and religion can go somewhere else.

So I almost got Wes to spill what the next campaign setting hard cover was on the Know Direction podcast tonight. Just so you know it isn't only you.

So has there been anything written for Golarion on the Titans and their place in the world? In the Bestiary it refers to the battle between the gods and the titans. Was that an event that occurred for Golarion as well? Thanks!

Are you excited or worried about Godzilla vs King Kong?

Sounds like it is time to restart a Iblydos thread in the campaign setting thread.

Spoiler:
The article mentions the "thanatotic magma of

Mount Ebaios", is that thanatotic because it is magma, or is there something special about it? Or does this have something to do with the titans?I had an idea for a Tyrant that was a Thanatotic Titan, as ruler of one of the city-states.

Now if I can just find a way to pick your brain for what your plans are.

Any chance we could get cool nicknames for the other regions of Golarion, like the Inner Sea and Dragon Empires? It would be easier to suggest cool new books if it wasn't Southern Garund Bestiary. ;)

Anuli has aasimars, ganzi and lizardfolk, and so on.

So lizardfolk... are we going to ever get a real PC racial write up for lizardfolk? I know the flumph said they didn't want to put too many new racial things in, and that Anuli already got ganzi in the write up but dang I'm holding out that one day we will get a proper stats for Lizardfolk!

As an aside I really need to get this book. Also so sad the flumph couldn't add a new race for Arcadia. I'm curious as to what he had in mind.

Ironically, a 0-HD version of lizardfolk was my original pitch for my new race. This was probably one of the most collaborative books we've done in a long time, and we all bounced ideas off each other. There were several ideas that went back and forth before we settled on ganzi, including a termite people (which was a little too close to the new race Adam originally wanted to include) and a 0-HD version of aranea. Still hope we can do those other three in the future.

We need names for the other areas like Inner Sea and Dragon Empires, so that I can start suggesting book titles. Because Southern Garund Bestiary, just doesn't have the right ring.

Aelyosos things I liked:

Spoiler:
The founding of Iblydos is very intriguing with cyclopes and the humans banding together to get through the Age of Darkness.

Hero-gods is a great way to handle the greek type stories, and the Myth-Speakers are genius.

There are 9 major city-states and I think we now know 3, Pol-Liachora, Pol-Ptirmeios, Pol-Sylirica.

Pol-Sylirica has a Spartan feel to it, although that might just be me reading into it. Anyone else get that feeling?

Very curious about the city of monsters, Dhuraxilis.

Still compiling so I will have a complete list of questions later. :)

I usually have a wait of several days between when I get the notice that subscriptions are ready to ship and when they actually ship (and the PDFs become available). My assumption has been that this is because they fill the simplest orders first.

So, if that is correct, what we should really be asking is... who has only a 'Player Companion' subscription? :]

Paizo has actually stated numerous times that this is not the case. They do not punish people who buy more by putting them later in the queue.

It has been joked that the warehouse staff has a nigh-incomprehensible formula for what gets shipped when. :)

I heard PMG designed it and Cosmo touched it....

Well I can drive over to their headquarters and head into their gamecenter. Which is pretty awesome.

From the office of expectation management: Arcadian ethnicities are mentioned and name dropped, but there are no mechanics included in the book for Arcadian ethnicities.

I'm beginning to think that Paizo really has such an office in their corporate HQ.

And I'm picturing it like the Monty Python "Argument Clinic" sketch.

It's pretty much a developer/designer job duty. :)

It's something that's very important to me, because I see how upset people can be when they get something expecting content that we never said a product would contain, which is why I try to clarify products I'm responsible for without giving too much away.

Feel free to give away too much! :D

I wouldn't expect that in this product unless Segada is an extremely cosmopolitan city.

Likewise I don't expect every Casmaron ethnicity to be covered, because Ular-Kel is just one city in a remote part of Casmaron.
If we know nothing of the different nations or even geography of Avistan, why start detailing ethnicities?
Heck, we still know practically nothing about most of Tian Xia and it's ethnicities and nations, why add more?

Since there are 3 Casmaron cities in the book, I expect we will at least get the names of the main ethnicities in that area. Of course, we already know 2 (Kelishite and Vudrani) of them.

I see that the art for Shensen on the cover of AP volume 100 is sold. Is it safe to assume you acquired it?

If the Akashic Record has a perfect psychic record of every moment in history, couldn't you just go there and find out how Aroden died?

How did I miss that you have another secret project that isn't announced that I assume is a hard cover in the Campaign Setting line? Hmmm, now I have to think. :D

If someone doesn't make their save when they hit a project image what happens? How long does it last? Does it take damage? This for an AP encounter.

It reacts in the way the attacker expects it to react. It's a shadow spell, so it's partially real until you make your Will save. Note that even if you DO make your Will save, that doesn't make the spell go away and the user can still funnel spells through the image... but once you make the save you know that you need to go looking elsewhere for the image's source rather than waste time attacking it. And if you have a friend who makes the Will save, there's no compulsion forcing you to keep attacking the image even if you failed your save.

If folks want further clarification on this spell, please take it to the rules forums, not here.

Excellent that is who I ran it and we were very close to having a TPK brought on by a certain liltu demon.

You of course can tell me it is a year away, but is Ninshabur and thus the Pit of Gormuz in the Parchlands or is that going to be a separate area?

Never.

I'm absolutely uninterested and bored by stats for deities. That's the role that demigod stats, like the demon lord stuff I did for Wrath of the Righteous or the Bestiary, come in to play.

Not interested AT ALL in statting up things above demigod level.

Hopefully you know I was joking at Erik's expense.:)

I thought Iblydos was an island off the coast of Casmaron and it might be it's own country with no relation to Casmaron.

Yeah, I forgot about the Vudra one.

Knowing how Paizo usually does things, I assume it will be like Greece, with some of it on land and then an archipelago.. But yes still part of the continent of Casmaron.

There is no connection between the Casmaron city in this book and the edge of Casmaron explored in Strange Aeons (aside from being in the same continent).

But there are 3 Casmaron cities in this book? However, I think I can safely say none of them are in the Parchlands.

Edited to spell Parchlands correctly.

Turns out my advice on how things work in Golarion will match up with what's published more often than not.

What!??!!? They actually let you have a say in what happens in Golarion?!?!?! [/sarcasm]

And thank you for the Iblydos city in Distant Shores and going to the Parched Lands in Strange Aeons. :D

Interesting things gleaned from the podcast.:
Interesting so we are starting as amnesiacs in Ustalav (near Thrushmoor), traveling to Casomir in Taldor, Okeno in Katapesh, and then Katheer in Qadira. Then to the Parched Lands which are east of Qadia, north of Iblydos, and west of Kelesh. And then on to Carcosa, Azlant cities will be found here.

So they are finally letting you do the Lovecraft AP, huh? Anything you want to spill? Do we get to fight Cthulu or Dagon, cuz I have miniatures for those? :)

Actually... while I wrote the outline for Strange Aeons, I'm neither going to be writing any adventures for it nor am I going to be developing it—Adam Daigle will be developing it. As it turns out, while I'd thought I would be able to develop it, there's another project I need to work on instead.

So... it's happening, and I'll be helping Adam out on it here and there, but technically, "they" aren't actually letting me do it.

At this point, I don't have much more to say about the AP though... it's over a year away. Have patience!

Am I right in assuming that this is an unannounced project that I can look forward to hearing about?

Nevermind, I am guessing this project will be Horror Adventures. Well if everything goes to plan you can tell me about it at PaizoCon. :D
