Well can only speak for myself but I do prefer the Eade style of art cause it reminds me of Merle from Escaflowne, Xiao from Dark cloud or Aisha clan-clan from outlaw star.

Either more like the bestiary 3 version or like Kanya from shatterd star.

Heya! While we'd love to have been able to keep on with our annual RPG Superstar contest, this year is full of exciting (and busy) projects that mean we're unable to devote the full attention necessary to run it. The contest is being put on pause to let Owen and the Starfinder team (as well as my team) focus on the crazy fun road ahead, and when it comes back y'all will be the first to know.

How come there haven't been any announcements for any new pathfinder campaign setting books or pathfinder modules for awhile??

Modules: This line is, for better or worse, the one that always seems to take the hits when it comes to schedule shuffling and resource management. In this case, ramping up to produce Starfinder has limited our resources available to produce modules, so there's a gap happening. We haven't abandoned the line but for the moment have nothing to announce for it.

Campaign Setting: This line's still going strong; we've got regularly scheduled books in production for it but the schedule took a hit due to some beyond-our-control realities with how our printer's schedule works. As a result, the line had a ripple with things being pushed back a month, more or less. That said, there's still plenty in the works for Golarion!

So it does seem that starfinder has had at least some affect on the schedule.

To quote Eric Mona from another thread

Erik Mona wrote:

Folks,

The Adventurer's Guide will be appearing here officially soon. Sometimes with the way we solicit this information to distributors, sites like icv2 can "leak" material before we've had a chance to get it up on our site ourselves. Some staff illnesses and other boring, unimportant day-to-day business stuff contributed to us not having our ducks in a row on this book this time, but I'm hoping that all gets sorted out by Monday.

The Adventurer's Guide IS a Pathfinder RPG book, published in the Pathfinder RPG line. This is a bit of a departure for us because the book WILL have more "Golarion" content in it than a regular book, but the emphasis is largely on character options, equipment, and other rules elements aimed at player characters, not on detailing the precise history of each of these organizations.

Organizations and power groups pose an interesting creative challenge for us when it comes to maintaining a strict wall between Campaign Setting and RPG line material. We started this book thinking "we should do a cool book with tons of character options related to different groups players can join." From there we faced a key decision: Do we make up a bunch of "generic" placeholder knighthoods, assassins guilds, mercenary leagues and the like, simply to preserve that distinction, or do we add some more cool details and further flesh out organizations that people presumably already care about, and sometimes care about a great deal?

With the assumption that people who don't care one way or the other will just carry on blissfully using the stuff they like and ignoring or changing the stuff that they don't--something that doesn't change whether the book uses Golarion organizations or not--we decided to go with the better-known organizations.

This is an experiment. To be completely honest, there is a bit of a school of thought here that thinks the big wall between the campaign world and the rules is more trouble than its worth. This book is a test to see if that is true. I'm excited by what I've what I've seen from the book so far, and I believe it will be a worthy addition to the Roleplaying Game hardcover line.

I hope (and to some extent expect) you'll feel the same way once you've had a chance to check it out for yourself.

Frankly I'm all for it better to use something thats already there than make up some setting neutral version thats pretty much just it with the serial numbers filed off.

Hawkeye has murdered people before. Lots of comic book characters have on the regular. I dont know how or why it became so awful for them to kill on occasion when the story warranted it.

Hawkeye doesn't kill

Hawkeye has long had a stance of 'Avengers don't kill'. It was a very specific thing to him.

Granted this was prior to Bendis dragging Ultimate assassin Hawkeye over... but he took his heroic role model status VERY serious.

Yeah it feels a lot like they got rid of origonal Hawkeye and replaced him with Ultimate/movieverse Hawkeye.

Ideally, I'd want such a low turnout that the election is considered null and void. Practically, I want such a low turnout that the big Democrat donors say, "Ya know, we should have backed Sanders; he would have been a slam-dunk instead of a barely-made-it. Let's think about that for next time." And the big Republican donors say, "Let's not back lunatic reality show hosts next time; it's a no-win deal."

Yeah speaking from a country that gets a lower and lower turnout thats not what happens what instead happens is they realise less and less people vote against them so they can get away with more and more stuff.

Racism has nothing to do with the long, long stay in the Inner Sea region. In point of fact, the folks at Paizo probably contain a fair few ardent partisans for just about every continent and cultural region they bothered to allow onto Golarion's surface. So saying it's about a Eurocentric worldview on Paizo's part is crap.

Sales numbers, on the other hand, do affect what gets greenlit. And while those are not released to the messageboard public willy-nilly, the sales on the Dragon Empires material have been mentioned as less than stellar.

Paizo is an awesome company full of awesome people... who have to make a living.

Take it from an L5R fan... the gaming industry punishes any and all missteps pretty harshly.

Ah but could part of that problem not be more because most the dragon empires stuff for adventures has been pretty high lvl (Module was 11+ and in Jade regent you dont actually get to the dragon empire till your about halfway through so again 10+) and has been mentioned before higher lvl stuff does not sell as well as lower lvl (Which would then have the possible knock on affect of those people not buying the support books.)

Also in regards to Jade regent it is possible a lot of people that were otherwise interested were put off due to the way it was set up (Ie they wanted to start in the Dragon empires not spend half the ap trying to get there.) So were put off from buying any of it.

Also now we have the situation of being led into the rest of this mess by someone who practiclly no one in the country (heck practically no one ine her own party) voted for. You know exactly one of the things the leave side had been arguing about in regards to the Eu.

To be blunt the entire thing has/is a farce.

Cameron actually did the best and most statesmanlike things he could under the circumstances. He fell on his sword, removing himself from the debate about the future. He offered himself as a sacrifice that might satisfy the lust of some of his backbenchers for blood. He resigned on a very long time scale, which grants time for everyone involved to come up with a plan, "knowing" that no decisions are likely to be taken until October.
That's one way of thinking about it. Another way is that he took the coward's way out, using resignation to avoid dealing with the consequences of losing the most idiotic political gamble ever made by a UK politician. Now some other sap is going to have to invoke Article 50 and face all the hard work of dealing with the consequences. Which may very well include ending the United Kingdom itself.
Speaking as an american who who knows absolutely nothing about the UK legal process, does that other sap actually have to invoke article 50, or is that just one of the many options said sap has when forming their government?
The thing about a democratic process... is that you're kind of obligated to go with how votes turn out. Brexit passed by a pretty sizable margin, so... yes it's going to happen. And the EU want it to happen soon.

Actually pretty small margin overall. Also what Orfamy quest said earlier.

Well it does occur to me that if there going with the possible future angle then the need to remove the planet to prevent spoilers excuse dosent hold much water since just because a set of events happend in that timeline dosent mean they would have happend in others.

Also I strongly suspect the new A'I god may be a certain Iron gods character.

Spoiler:
To me it seems that the Iron man fight at the end was more flash of emotion rather than permanent intent to kill Bucky (after all if that was the case when the call for the raft breakout came in he would probably have been suited up and halfway there before Ross could finish the call).

So, yeah, that's not good, but at least the motivation makes sense. Let's look at how the comic portrays...

Unfortunatly it seems the dialogue thing is being misreported as well since the version I was told (That some of the people are getting annoyed at) is actually completly diffrent than what actually happens. Also keep in mind that in the places where you have to have downloaded a copy of the game to review it the reviews are generally better.

So...four Dwarven vampires are going to turn the entire council of elders for the dwarven nation into spawn that serve Hel so they can choose to end the world? And have to do so on a timetable so that no one stops them from doing it? Is that about the sum of it?

So I guess that means:
a) that must be a small council.
a) no one has means of fast means of communicating with them to warn them.
b) apparently there aren't many high-level dwarven priest outside the moot that could protect against the vampires in any case.

Also the entire council is all in one place since that orb is a one use item.

(I dunno does is it just me or does this storyline seem to be just being stretched out and is something that probably could have been resolved in maybe a dozen strips?)

Also why cant Roy just dust the new high priest of Hel? should solve everything right?
