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.
As always, if there are questions about our Community Guidelines, please feel free to email community@paizo.com.

That one awkward moment when Liz calls out someone for the map they submitted and they are in the seminar...

Less a call-out and more of a comparison between the examples you'll get from authors.

...It's still better than a Nicolas Logue map turnover, I guarantee you. :D

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.

Thank you to all of the players that showed up for my game! Even though we were three players short, I'm glad you had a great time at PaizoCon!

As a good rule of thumb, if you present something negative, please also post something positive as well. Knowing what we did right is just as important as knowing what we did wrong!

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.

Dumb question:

Is this 3.5 or Pathfinder? It says Pathfinder in the description, but OGL in the title. So confused :o

All of the Pathfinder RPG products have "OGL" in the title to indicate their compatibility with the System Reference Document. So yes, it's for Pathfinder. :D

Thank you!

I always thought it was OGL for 3.5 products and PFRPG for Pathfinder.

For books outside of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game line, that is the case, yes.

Paizo Employee Community Manager

It's less being "wrong" and more being "consistent." If you establish that the Branmourn Forest is split in twain by a canyon that spews red silt every spring with the snowmelt, you just need to remember that you said that and add the necessary geographical features. (Notes are a GM's BFF.)

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. :)

And when all else fails, crib liberally. Take an existing map of the Earth (or Mars, or TItan, or whatevs), invert it, rotate it, make some tweaks, and use that as your map.

Thanks, Liz. Great advice! I do crib a lot. I don't know how far up the thread you've read, but I base the general look of my world on actual Earth from the Oligocene Epoch of Earth's prehistory. The continents look similar, though the coastlines are often different and the continents don't necessarily connect to each other (ie North and South America don't have the Isthmus to connect them).

But that's about as far as I've gotten. It's drawing the smaller area maps with cities, landmarks, deserts, oases, etc that really just bogs me down.

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.)
