Have to say so far in the playtest game I'm running the parry ability using an AoO has worked great so far so may be best to keep it that way (Or perhaps just make it a number of time per round equal to your Dex modifier so like an AoO but not needing the actual combat reflexes feat to do it.)
Actualy in the very first sandpoint article in Ap Issue 1 there is a midwife that offers herbal contrseptives
Actually to be fair I wouldent call it growing acceptance since from the very first time he was ever mentioned (Origonal world setting hardback If I'm not mistaken) The storm king has been said to be interested in and activly collecting firearms.
Coincedently all the actual firearm's and related things you mentioned only actually show up when it involves the guy who it has been established has them from the very begining of the setting.
As for Reign of winter considering where and when you go it would be rather odd not to have firearms.
Problem is ro break the system you need a new way of voting since first past the post inevitably leads to a two party system.

So any chance of giving a preview of how a skinwalker works? I have a couple of Golarion charactrs based off of Eberron shifters and am wondering if they would need a lot of reworking as Skinwalkers.
Intervention is a bad idea that in the long run may just make things worse.
A recent example being Libya
What's the point of making new classes that are JUST "Existing class, but exactly what would happen if you multiclassed them"?
Because standard multi classing dosent work all that great at the moment?
Interesting story on the subject I found here
Pretty much reinforces my opinion he's a bit of a nutjob

Just a note that we *will* be experimenting with a new format/type of content for the journal, but that it won't start until next February (after Wrath of the Righteous finishes). Stay tuned!
Really hope your not changing it to much since I quite like the fiction as it stands right now (Only suggestion would be more coloured artwork like that found in the story blogs but thats about it.)

The ironic thing is on most forums if someone goes and does something a moderator tells them not to do they would be suspended or banned outright yet hear we have this same thread for a third time. If anything it proves the Paizo staff are relativly speaking quite relaxed on moderation for the most part.
Well first would be to make 100% sure none of your players will be upset by the backstabing (One of these things that if done wrongly or unwelcomed can completly wrak a group.)

Which is one thing that does bother me about all this while I do believe the comments were vile and horrific I cant help but think she set out to set up the situation to be this way
What I mean is she seems to have comments on all her other videos disabled except for this one, uses the comments to gain attention, then when she has her funding disables the comments again.
If she Disables comments normally to avoid such remarks why allow them on this video and then only disable them once she has got her funding?

Will we be hearing more about Tabris in the future?
To be fair I believe it has been mentioned that with hindsight they would not have put the goddless cleric part in.
Remember Magnimar is the place where they worship emyrial lords and Agathons (Animal form outsiders) So I dont see him getting all that negative of a reaction. As for the why assuming your playing shatterd star as written exchange student pretty much covers that.
Interestingly a show over at the escapist has I feel managed to show issues with the game industry better than these kickstarter funded videos
He means things like the map (Which incidently you dont get with the digital version)
Also this seems a big deal about nothing after all the artists for the comics put up pages for them on there accounts
If memory serves it was based on various bits from various Paizo staff either from homebrews or created whole cloth for the setting so yeah at best coincidence.

All this excitement makes me very happy. I gotta admit I expected more grumblers, but I'm pleasantly thrilled with the response so far.
To be fair many of us who are weary of the idea already voiced it in the item card and the Rasputin must die thread.

To be fair I am pretty wary of this. I dont mind exotic (Been fine with the rest of the Ap's plot till this point). I just think that there is such a thing as piling on to much exotic. At this point I'll wait and see if it ends up being to weird for my tastes I'll probably just sub the book or the earth part for a module.
Actually the part that really is putting me off is the implications it goes to earth. I'm not fond of putting real modernish real life events into my fanatasy and if it does send the characters to Earth it pretty much locks in what time period Earth shares with Golarion. (I suppose they could use a time travel argument but thats adding out there with even more out there.)
Not trying to be so negative but since it was initally announced this has been the Ap I had most been looking foreward to and it is kind of disapointing to see what seems like a big shift in tone for it.
Hey dont diss the squirrels a pack of them brought down Doctor Doom once.
This here is one of the main things I've noticed In most the Ap fiction I've read and Erzen in the comics (Cant really speak about the novels) The pathfinders in them dont come across as the spent several years cleaning chamber pot types indeed I get the feel that most of them would have been way to free spirited to put up with that sort of thing.
To put this in context I've been collecting pathfinder since near the beginning and one thing that has always struck me is how the Pathfinder society come across as pretty unlikable. Between Seeker of secrets, What happend in the Elando story and the current fiction the society comes across as a bunch of Elitest jerks.
Now my question is this supposed to be the case? Reading shatted star and the entombed with the phareoes module series the society in them comes across as much more reasonable and likable (As well as many of the society characters in the adventure path fiction). So is the society as presented in Seeker of secrets the norm (I believe it has been mentioned there were a fair few mistakes in that) or is it more a case of early work which is now no longer cannon?
Actually another reason they may not want to stat up full gods is because it then creates a whole other list of problems a few off my head include
1. Do they use Golarion gods or make up whole new Deities.
A slight correction it seems that the mantis god wasent created in responce to that since he was worshiped by ancient Azlanti which existed millenia before the shining crusade.

Just my opinion but at this point doing Epic rules after releasing this seems somwewhat redundant since it will have two rules systems trying to do essentially the same thing.
Yeah also not much of a fan of the new format.
With the caveat that I'm Chaotic in alignment in real life, these are the excerpts I find appalling:
To be fair these dont sound all that diffrent than what you have to follow at boot camp when you join the army
