Oo, clearly not. Sorry about that I must have read too quickly in my excitement. :)

I was waiting on some clarification before adding it to the subscription. :)

Damn.

No mini news for the second week.
Not from D&D, not from Pathfinder.
This sucks. :-(

You'll get a blog in a little bit. I had a bunch of things on my plate today.

I just am not a fan of MIXING canon established locales with custom locations, so feels... wrong to say there's a forest or building somewhere the campaign setting map doesn't indicate. This will be my first campaign as GM, and I understand a lot is up to me, but haven't got a feel for that kind of creative authority yet lol

That's fair. However, sometimes canon needs to be fired out of a cannon. A lot of places are left deliberately blank for you as a GM to take and create and make your own. We're not going to knock on your door and tell you you're doing it wrong. And the campaign setting is, again, not super-detailed for you to add those forests and buildings wherever you want them.

"Where's Super Spoopy Forest?"
"Oh it's just west of Thrushmoor!"
"...It's not on the map..."
"That's an outdated map, and since the royal cartographers lost their funding, they keep using older versions of the map—no money for a new survey."

Spoiler:
This kind of explanation is not without basis in the real world, and a map purchased in one area of the world could be wildly different than one that is local. Portolans and rutters were national secret-level books for a very long time.

Whatever you plan on doing, just be consistent about it as a GM. After it leaves our hands, Golarion is very much *your* world now—have fun with it. :)

Removed some posts and their responses—this was not the way to handle the OP's question. Please don't insult each other over how you play the game.
Skills are covered here, but how you acquire your skill depends on your GM. Most GMs handwave it, but others might require you to find a trainer (such as a fellow PC)—ask them how they'd like to handle it.

Removed a post. Comparing buying decisions to willfully putting oneself in harm's way is unnecessarily hyperbole. Keep it civil.

This is going a bit far afield of the original topic. If you want to discuss other aspects of the game besides Adventure Paths and point buy, please do so in another thread.

Okay, so besides named lakes and rivers and towns/cities, just BS it, essentially?

We prefer to say, "Let the GM determine what's best for their campaign," but essentially yes.

You're not the only one that has this problem. My best piece of advice is to outline what you want to do and break it down into smaller chunks to make it more manageable, that way when you're in a better headspace it will be easier to tackle.

Dealing with depression is a much harder beast. One of the tricks that I taught myself was that every time I felt myself reacting to something (positive or negative) to take a moment to step back and analyze it, then find a mid-point. When you're feeling great and amazing, it's easy to overdo it (and then you're out of spoons for an unspecified time period while your brain recovers). In writing, something, anything, is better than nothing at all—even 100 words is something. Try Pacemaker to set goals for yourself.

And you know what? If you can't write...that's okay. Keep fighting the depression, practice good self-care, try again. Depression isn't a one-time battle; it's a war that you have to face again every day, but you can do it. I believe in you.

Many many ages ago I contributed a "Things to Ask Your Players" in PC Pearls, and I made a habit of starting each game session asking the players a question about their characters. What's their favorite food, any hobbies, relationships with their family—and then I made sure to reference that at some point in the campaign. Maybe not that session, but at some point to let them know I was listening and was using it to flesh out the world.

Ultimate Campaign has a whole section on how to randomly generate a character background (expanded upon in Pathfinder Player Companion: Quests & Campaigns for the Inner Sea region of Golarion), and you can see the material in Ultimate Campaign on the Pathfinder Reference Document (the book version provides the random tables to generate from).

You need to treat yourself better. Aren't you worth at least Dairy Queen or something? :D

It doesn't necessarily have to be a copying Heroes of Horror...the irony/tragedy of someone who serves a sun deity or loved the sun becoming something that can no longer withstand the sun's rays is something I suspect existed before Heroes of Horror in one way or another. Though even if it was an homage, I don't really see the problem. Clearly they were going to make someone a vampire, whether they liked it from a tragic angle, as a reference to Heroes of Horror, both, neither, I don't see why it can't be Kyra.

Removed some posts and their responses. Do not make what happened in Orlando a platform for homophobic or anti-Islamic rhetoric, or trying to justify or excuse the shooter's actions. These are not the forums to make this discussion. People died—many members of the LGBTQIA community died, a community that many of Paizo's staff and board members are a part of. Don't make light of that fact—not in this thread, not on these forums.

As much as I like the discussion on maps, it should go to its own thread, not this one about the Pawn Collection.

On the upside, it's a highly visited site. On the downside, it's an increasingly cluttered site. On the gripping hand, it's a for-profit site, so that would likey mean fan-materials would have to have their serial numbers filed off.

Frankly, archivesofnethys is probably a better fit, if a dedicated PathinderFanStuff site doesn't ever happen.

I thought about Nethys, but I don't have a way to contact him outside of a PM.

Fortunately, the God-King of Magic maintains a Facebook page where you might send a missive. :D

You are perfectly safe Thursty. You haven't reached a point where it's meet and right to eat your heart to absorb your power.

You can't eat peoples' hearts!

They're way too gamy! I'd recommend the liver, maybe pair it with a nice wine and some legumes.

Pretty sure Thursty's liver isn't safe eating. :P
