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.
For the marketing staff - if possible you really should consider making t-shirts with the iconic characters. These would sell like hot cakes! I have to think there is some IP reason you can't do this because I'm sure someone else has thought of this. I can tell you that it would be an incredible marketing tool for Pathfinder.
Like these ones here? T-Shirts are kind of weird to merchandise at the store for us, and we haven't quite figured out the best way to handle them quite yet.
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.)
