Store: The new space is MUCH bigger, but it felt like there was less third party product than the year before. No Green Ronin, which is a damn shame... Advanced Bestiary is one of the best third party books for Pathfinder ever. Also, the new Freeport book is just amazingly gorgeous. There was also no Raging Swan product, where there was the year prior. Creighton's stuff is great.
Both of those are total derps on my part (I'm sorry Chris & Creighton ;_; ) when I was putting together the packlist.
Removed some off-topic commentary and their replies. Accusatory and baiting posts aren't welcome on the Paizo boards—they do not help foster the community we want here. In addition, Paizo has always strove for, and continues to strive for, representation across all spectrums of ethnicity, gender, and sexuality in our game products, and if that's not something that works for you and your game, you are welcome to change it in your own personal game. But we will continue striving to be more inclusive and have a place for everybody at the gaming table in our game products.
If Hell's Vengeance and Hell's Rebels take place in a similar timeframe (I haven't read much about them yet so not sure) just had the thought - would it be possible to run BOTH? Perhaps with the same group but with different characters - alternating one book from one then one book from the other? (and possibly having the two parties effect each other in some fashion?) May not be possible if the stories don't allow for it - but just had the thought that it might be a fun exercise with the right group (or alternatively with two groups that one GM runs...)
:)I'm not sure if it's going to be *deliberately* set up like that (yet), but I know if my players were interested in that kind of setup, I would definitely Make It So.
I sometimes get bogged down not by where to put villages and oases (for example) but by how would the ocean currents flow? How would they affect weather and climate? Sometimes too many details flood my mind and that causes a shut down, too.
Again, look to real-life examples, like the Gulf Stream. For the most part, it's not something you'll have to worry about in your games, so don't sweat it. It *would* be a concern if you have to head out on the ocean, but until you reach that point, don't sweat it. Do what you need for your current adventure arc—everything else can wait. :)
My brother and I did something similar when we first started gaming (although it was Pangaea for our map).Cities grow where there are resources to support it, deserts where there's a lack of water (though this is a gross simplification), oases where there is a manufactured well or an underground source of water.
Landmarks are generally unusual or notable geographical features, or have other historic or cultural importance.
It's pretty easy to get bogged down in the details, so just focus on the area that you're currently running an adventure in. Pick five things, add one type of settlement for each size category (thorp, village, town, etc.), and just build as you go. (Don't forget to take notes as you worldbuild along the way.)
You're worth more than free.
Now on to the question! There is a lot of Stock Art available online (here for example) that publishers can use in their product (or they re-use art previously commissioned). Also, don't miss the 3PP Open Call or Accepting Submissions threads for paying work.
Also, your anxiety is something that every artist I've ever met experiences, from the beginner to the veteran. We all know its cruel embrace. Punch it in the teeth and keep drawing.
Oh dear. This is a question with a complicated set of answers. Fortunately, I can help out, but the thing you need to remember is that the Pathfinder Compatibility License is a legal document. If you do not understand it, or the Open Gaming License, you really really should consult a lawyer.
Now, the first thing you need to decide: Are you doing this for personal enjoyment, and not for profit? If so, look at the Community Use Policy. The Community Use Policy allows you to reference our intellectual property and product identity (our setting and many many many other things).
If you're looking to publish and distribute your supplement, then you would be considered a third-party publisher. (And the thing you need to ask yourself there is: do I want to write, or do I want to deal with the *business* of being a publisher and everything that entails? If the former, seek a partnership with a preexisting publisher who can handle all the day-to-day stuff of publishing).
Agreeing to the Pathfinder Compatibility License requires you to fully understand what you're agreeing to, and being liable for your mistakes. I suggest you read the Compatibility License and the Open Gaming License thoroughly before proceeding any further.
Either way, I look forward to hearing more from you. :)
Removed a bunch of posts and their responses. There is absolutely nothing inherently "masculine" about dealing with your emotional responses to situations—that's an inherent part of life, not gender. Telling somebody to "man up" is utterly unhelpful, not to mention insulting, and has no place on paizo.com. Having an emotional response to a game you've played, a story you read, or art you've viewed is the reason we partake in these experiences. And sometimes we need to take a step back and do something else to process those emotional responses before doing it again. Again, that is life, and nothing to do with your gender, your Myers-Briggs personality type, left or right-handedness, phase of the moon, or preferred dice colors.
Players and GMs need to have a thorough discussion of topics they want to avoid in their gaming, either one-on-one or as a group, as well as hash out the "house rules" (the kind that have nothing to do with the game, more like "this is the kind of things that I expect when playing in my house" sort of thing).
Not ... entirely.
