Can I ask what happened to the origin story from ages ago where Asmodeus and his brother were the creator gods of the universe? I've never been sure if that was retconned out completely, or if parts of it (such as Sarenrae confronting him, Asmodeus having ancient origins, etc) are still valid.
As mentioned above, this origin story remains valid. As valid as ALL origin stories for the creation of reality and all that. They all tell different stories. Which one is "right" is left to the individual to choose. That's why it's a matter of faith and religion, and not one of history and science.

Out of curiosity though does the Paizo staff know or have an idea on which story is the most true one? Much like how they know how Aroden died (not to reveal but just to make sure anything written connected to the subject is right.)

Ah I had assumed that being a none Ap they wouldent need the Ap editors (Much as I assumed the module line dosent use them but I could be wrong on that?)

They already did that with The Emerald Spire, and that only went to 11th level, also done with Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition, which on the fast track tips put at 17-18th level.

I'm doubtful that is the answer :-)

To be fair (And I admit I could be very wrong about this) I dont think either of those were as big as Inner sea gods?

Edit nevermind Inner sea gods was smaller than the anniversary edition although done as a single mega dungeon might be achievable? (Like what James said they did with shatterd star)

That origin tale is still valid as are most the others (Long story short since creation of the universe was so long ago no mortal really knows and many gods have there own versions of what happend during creation all of which could potentially be true)

Just a suggestion but maybe if not an Ap then at some point in the future use that floating hardback slot (One that covers things like inner-sea gods/ Inner sea races etc) for a lvl 1-20 superdungeon/adventure?

I'm just amazed at how much people criticize Lucas...but when someone else who isn't even the original creator does worse...they cheer him.

Well he did change the force from a mystical thing to essentially some form of parasitic infection also Jar Jar binks. After those two things The film would have to release a flesh eating virus into me before I consider it worse.

(Also I could be miss remembering but isent the courasant scene one of the added in scenes for the dvd high definition remake thing mostly to tie things in to the prequal trilogy?)

GreyWolfLord, can you provide a link showing where *any* of what you just outlined is claimed to be official? I honestly think you are misunderstanding something, or read some bit of misinformation or something ...

Also, what do you mean by 'The book isn't written in a flavor I really like either'? What book are you talking about?

It's in the book. In it, it turns the celebrations you see into a massacre. Everyone flees and has to run...

That's actually what happens in the book...

The OLD canon had it that the Imperials were held together by the Emperor and quickly fell apart. Lucas expanded this to try to show that indeed much of the Empire fell quickly by showing all the celebrations at the end. There were remaining forces, but they weren't unified by any means, and the New Republic was pretty massive and put in place rather quickly. They still had challenges (for example, Thrawn) in the EU, but in the movies, you basically just see celebrations all over the galaxy with everyone cheering the emperor's death (and even a someone calling out that they are free now, if that wasn't clear enough).

Now, instead...and of course that massive imperial fleet decides to attack the rebels after the death star is destroyed...

The probability is that the Rebel fleet was destroyed and Endor also destroyed...but...hey...what's a little canon.

In addition, when directly asked about Plageius, they pretended they had no idea (or really had no idea) who he was or if he existed.

That was in a panel with Abrahms and some others a while back, I think someone may have posted a link to it.

As I said, it's AMAZING...how much slack people will give Abrahms as he apparently destroys the canon...and even make excuses for him doing it...

Whilst Lambasting the original creator. There are parts of the Prequels that I don't like, but I'd say I respect Lucas's vision a tad more than what I've heard about what Abrahms has been doing thus far (doing the same thing he did to Star...

So whats the book called? spent some time looking for these details but nothing comes up

[...]but you just won't remember what kind of person YOU are.
The characters will not have any background then...? How are we going to choose their traits? Will the campaign traits be linked to the kind of person they were?

In large part, your character backgrounds will be unknown to you, and the traits you select will likely determine key elements of your background that you might or might not learn at a later point. How all that works out is still very much in the preliminary planning stages though, but yeah...

One of the taglines I was toying with for this AP was: "You're not who you think you are."

All part of the horror element of the AP, frankly. It'll certainly require a bit more trust between the player and GM than most campaigns. And it likely won't be to everyone's tastes, which is why we'll offer a more traditional way to start the AP as well, of course.

How well would the amnesia route work with characters with fully fleshed out background to begin with like say a character from a previous campaign you want to use and the amnesia giving a way to do so? (He's forgoten most his spells/training etc?)

What did they do to the TT version to kill it? Last time I played TT Warhammer was in the mid 1990s.

Well first they went through with the end times destroying the old warhammer world (Badly handled since it was mostly down to the 'good' guys running with the idiot ball a certain elf mage in particular). Then they released a new game called age of Sigmar that has some links to the old fluff but seems mostly done due to paranoid Ip reasons (renaming of most things dropping of concepts that were generic fantasy etc)

Rules themselves for the new game range between average to just plain bad models measured from parts of the model rather than bases (rules even encourage you to stack the models on bases which looks terrible) no points cost so good luck trying to balance anything in it oh and released rules for all the old models but gave several silly rules (Talk to models actually insult your oponent compare mustash/beard sizes and no I'm not kidding)

All in all a huge mess which I can not see working for them especially when an awesome looking game based on there old background is soon coming out.

Also little chacne of the reversing it since there dedicated to the point of putting a 10foot statue of it outside there front office

Yup.. and we are looking into this issue as well. There is certainly a desire to make the different identities a bit more than a cosmetic shift, but we may have put the line a little bit further than was necessary to get the difference we wanted. This is why we playtest.

There is an adventure encounter in this—a redcap romp called "Root Root." (Along with an article on more dangers around Sandpoint.) I can't speak to what Comixology might omit, though.

Huh seems comixology have been taking them out and replacing with exclusive content (Being black and white drawings of the images) Frankly would rather have the encounter and details

I believe the disconect is from the fact that from a mythological standpoint Sucubuss and Incubus were the same creature only diffrent genders whilst in pathfinder they are treated as seperate creatures.
