Note:This product is part of the Pathfinder Maps Subscription.
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"That's an outdated map, and since the royal cartographers lost their funding, they keep using older versions of the map—no money for a new survey."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.

When will the "Add to Cart" button become available for this one? I'd like to get this one into my Saved Items so I will remember to order it when the time comes.

Try again! I forgot to poke a thing, and it's been thoroughly poked.

Removed some posts and their responses. This is a public forum, and statements describing how you used a spell to create a "willing girl at basecamp" for your character are 100% not okay.

Removed some posts and their responses. This understandably a hot button topic for a lot of people, but please remain civil in the thread and don't resort to personal attacks and badmouthing people. It's not going to help the discussion, nor is armchair quarterbacking.

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.

Yeah, a full questionnaire is not ideal—that's why I favored the "one question per game session" and built it up over time.
