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

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.

As a system administrator, I know exactly what you meant after spending all day working on computers, it is hard to come home and have fun on a computer.

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?

When are we getting Faiths and Pantheons for Golarion? And can you make Erik stat up all the gods in it? ;)

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.

3 Casmaron cities, I only see one?

One in Iblydos, one in Vudra, and the other one those are all in Casmaron.

Also: will the release of "Distant Shores" go along with the 2016 Adventure Path - will it feature some of the places in this gazeteer? I know that the 2016 AP is supposed to be C'thulhu themed, but that sounds more like "Distant Worlds" than "Distant Shores."
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.

Note: this is also backed up in much of what is published on Urgathoa. They may work together on occasion, but they often clash because the Whispering Way seeks to eradicate all life and turn it into undeath, where as many of the Urgathoans are against this as it inhibits many beings from satiating their desires.
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

Huh. I thought someone said that the next AP would be a traditional one. I suppose horror themes and Lovecraftian influences are traditional for Paizo, so maybe looked at from that angle...

That was the old standard of traditional in the spring and experimental for GenCon. They stopped doing that a few years ago.

Evidently this is from Call of Cthulhu:

Quote:

And with strange aeons even death may die

Interesting to see the change from "strange aeons" to "eons".

Probably due to the outsider race they have, I'm guessing.

It might not be remember Perram is typing what he thinks they said so we will see how it is actually spelled.

During the Adventure Path Q&A seminar, The Strange Eons Adventure Path was announced! This will follow the Hell’s Vengeance AP and will be available August, 2016.

This will be a very Lovecraftian themed AP. Focusing on the Old gods.

Will have amnesiac players.
Will involve a lot of travel.
Dreamlands may be explored, meeting famous authors of books, such as the necronomicon, etc…

Back matter will have a lot of lovecraftian details.
Will explore new continents in Golarion!

We confirmed at PaizoCon that the six cities are located in (and written by): Arcadia (Adam Daigle); central Casmaron (James L. Sutter); Iblydos (John Compton); Kaoling (Rob McCreary); southern Garund (Crystal Frasier); Vudra (me!)

We'll have more information as the book gets closer to release.

I bet Sutter's is the Kazakstan analogue that he has been talking about. And apparently I need to hit up John to try and find out what he did for Iblydos.

Ooh. Fingers (tentacles, whatEV) crossed for something that makes Kaer Maga seem like the Juniors Chamber of Commerce.

Well if he is I have a theory that it is set in the unnamed Kazakhstan analogue, but that is just a guess.

So Crystal is doing the Southern Garund one, Daigle is writing Arcadia, Do we know who is writing the Vudra and Iblydos cities?

And is Sutter actually writing a city?

So was Mad Max Fury Road your favorite movie ever or just of the year?

In Distant Shores are you going to make some pantheon decisions for the other continents or are you going to be leaving that bit vague?

I can tell. I can't imagine it doing anything other than disappointing you alas, since it's not gonna be 64 THOUSAND pages long and won't have a 1 to 1 scale map of the planet folded up inside it.

Nope I am pretty sure I will not be one of the ones that is disappointed. However, I know that there will be a list of people who are. Which is very unfortunate for those people. :D
